diet pills?

Erica, on February 4, 2014 at 7:58 AM Posted in Fitness and Health 0 52

I'm looking for any brides that tried a weight loss medication that has worked for them. something that would suppress your appetite and give you a little more energy if its natural that's better but anything that you use that works let me know!

    Drinking a full glass of water 10-30 minutes before everything you put in your mouth suppresses appetites in a very safe way. I have never heard of a diet pill that's 100% safe. Good luck.

    Also, if you're drinking caffeine, gradually stop. Despite it being a stimulant, caffeine will end up making you feel tired and draggy after the initial jolt is over.

    As Faith is saying, exercise gives you endorphins and more energy. Just a walk around the neighborhood will help.

    Exercise always worked for me AND gives you more energy. Quick fixes are exactly that, a quick fix. Without a healthy diet and exercise routine the weight you lose with a pill will most likely come right back.

    I am not one for diet pills I lost 23 pounds in a year and half with diet and exercise

    But if you want a jump start I don't know if you heard about advocare products they have this 24 day challenge and people lose about 5 lbs on the first week of doing it. It's meal replacement shakes and a bunch of other stuff.. I take spark which is like a preform out before my lifting and running gym sessions it really helps... Idk if you are interested in that

    Back in 2005 I took phentermine I went from a size 14 to a size 6 in 3 months. It was certainly a quick fix! I was on a VERY strick diet also. I was monitored every 2 weeks by a doctor for blood pressure and potassium issues becasue it can cause issues. I stopped taking it once I lost so much that I didn't look healthy. I kept it off until I got pregnant with my son. I tried taking it again and it didn't work the same way.

    That being said, I don't advise taking it. Its not a safe way to loose weight! What the women above told you is a lot better advise. I just wanted to answer your question.

    Please don't take diet pills.

    Try the apple test: if you're about to eat something outside of a meal time bc you think you're hungry, imagine replacing what you're about to eat with an apple-- would you still eat it? If the answer is yes, then that means you're actually hungry. If the answer is no, then something other than hunger is making you want to eat (boredom, stress, thirsty, etc), and you should stop yourself from doing it.

    @ Barbara, that's a good tip - I'll have to try that one. I'm eating an apple right now as it happens! I don't really like fruit but I'm trying to be good and change my eating habits.

    Diet pills are bad...Sure most of them will help you lose weight but when you stop youll gain it right back. I would recommend going on a strict diet and exorcise. It can be just as effective.

    Diet pill are not safe. They mess with your hormones and your digestive system.

    Don't expect to loose weight quickly and be able to sustain it. Healthy weight lose is about 1-2 lbs a week. Clean eating and exercise is the only way to go. Diet: don't eat anything that comes in a box, has a commercial or has a drive thru. Don't drink any sodas- not even diet soda. Drink water, and lots of it. Eat more veggies than anything else. Exercise: just move more than you usually do. Pick something you like and you have fun with so you will stick to it.

    Good luck!

    Watch your portions and what you eat. Track what you are eating and eat clean. Exercise and water are super important as well.

    I have heard countless stories of diet pills gone wrong...

    Getting started is often the hardest part. But diet pills are not sustainable weight loss. You say you're doing Weight Watchers, so I would stick with that. It's a good way to change your lifestyle to a healthier one. Smiley smile

    I've tried diet pills when I was younger. (that makes me sound super old.) They never worked. Don't waste your money. If you want to take something for energy, try a multi-vitamin. I will say that I've been a yo-yo dieter for at least 10 years. I've tried every fad diet, only to gain everything back time and time again. 2 years ago I hit 178 pounds. I seriously weighed more than both my brother and father, which was a wake up call. My fiancee convinced me to try weight watchers. I lost 8 pound in the first month with just diet. I started going to the gym 3 days a week (2 days of Zumba and 1 additonal work out day). By the end of month 3 I weighed 152 pounds. Now, 2 years later, weight watchers has taught me to eat healthy and portion control and I am able to actually maintain my weight for the first time in over 10 years. I want to lose 10 pounds before the wedding and I actaully know that my goal is achievable with the help of weight watchers. (I should totally be a spokewoman!)

    I did Advocare 24 day challenge last year in June. I definitely helped cleanse my body. I didn't lose the crazy amounts that others "say" they did. I did lose a few inches...of water weight. I also did it exactly the way it says to and incorporated diet.

    I am not a fan of "diet Pills" they are not good for you in anyway shape of form. and trust me I have thought of doing it but my FH highly disagrees and makes it known.

    We both are just eating better and working out daily. Even if it is just a walk around the block.

    I also had a really great group of friends at work and we would walk around the building when it was warmer and do stairs everyday.

    Just find something that will motivate you...and stick with it.

    I was on one. Made me feel great for a few days.. Was drinking tons of water eating good walking. Then I almost ended up in the hospital. It races your system up, can slow down kidney functions and just isn't good. They make vitamins that can boost metabolism and such maybe check those out since they aren't bad for you. All I know is that diet pill was the scariest thing I ever did my body hated it!

    I've used diet pills, and they worked, but they don't sustain you.

    If you want to jump start your weight loss, cut out carbs. Legit, no bread, potatoes, pasta, sweets.

    Lean proteins, leafy veggies. The weight will come off relatively quickly.

    Adipex or phentermine worked for me and a couple of girls I work with. We lost weight fast to keep it off permanently you will need to exercise and find a good nutrition plan.

    About 2 years ago I took Slimquick with diet and exercise I lost almost 30 pounds in 3 months. Then last year I took Phrntermine and also lost about 20 pounds in 3 months along with diet and exercise.

    Not a fan of diet pills, but there are herbal supplements that are very popular that support weight loss. Green coffee bean extract as well as Garcinia Cambogia. Dr. OZ supports all these 100% Natural supplements. I used to buy my vitamins from here, and you can read all about them here too. Purehealth100.com

    I am taking phentermine right now, yes I know it isn't the best thing to do but whatever. Yes it works! I have been dieting and working out but needed to lose more weight. I'm not planning on staying on it forever.

    Wedding is in 18 days and I started taking the pills January 1. It gives you energy but doesn't make me jittery. I have lost 2 sizes since I started.
