I do not believe in diet pills. I have tried many different kinds with no success. I went on the diet my doctor gave me and I have lost twenty pounds already. My diet consist only of meat, fruit and vegetables. Cereal is the no sugar added. I do not eat white bread only multi-grain. I only eat bread about two or three times a week and only two slices at a time. I also have a book on fat burning foods that I find is more of a help than all these fad diets or diet pills. Try it. I did and I lost weight.

Diet pills don't work. If any one did, then people wouldn't try anything else. Most diet pills are comprised of guarana (caffiene) and junk that just isn't good for your body. The best way to lose weight, I'm sorry to say, is the traditional method; eat less, move more. Exercise for at least 45 minutes several days per week. Eat green vegetables and lean meats. Stick with whole grains (and limit consumption to once per day) and stay away from "white" foods--white rice, white bread, pasta, sugar, etc. Stick to natural foods found on the outside aisles of the grocery store (meats, produce, dairy--stuff that has to be refridgerated) instead of anything found in a box, as it's processed, nutritionless garbage. Drink water or no-calorie juices like crystal lite. Switch from regular soda to diet. Watch your calories. Realize that not all salads are created equal--especially if you're buying them from a fast food restaurant. Eat something nutritious every 3-4 hours so you don't feel hungry and keep your energy, and thus your metabolism, up. You don't have to starve yourself to lose weight. You just need to make the right choices. You can still have those little treats now and then, as long as they're just that...treats...now and then, not as an every day food. This seriously works. You don't need gimmicks. You don't need expensive pills. You just need common sense, the right choices, and to build your environment so that it's foolproof. If you want to succeed, get all of the garbage out of your house, your car, your office desk...all the places you normally keep junk food. Replace it with foods that are good for you. You don't need an expensive gym membership. Go for brisk walks every night for an hour with a walkman on. It's a great way to de-stress. It might suck at first, especially if you haven't moved your body in a while. But you build endurance and stamina pretty quickly as those muscles develop and it gets easier. Get a tape like Leslie Sansone's "Walk away the pounds" for when it's raining so you can walk indoors. You don't need a lot of room to do it, since you can march in place. It really does work. I lost over 100 lbs 2 years ago doing this, so I know what I'm talking about. Ditch the pills. You don't need them.

I have done diet pills. actually, ripped fuel. it seemed to work very well with exercise. i was never big, but i wasnt where i wanted to be. so with a little hard work and the help of ripped fuel, i got down to where i wanted to be within about 2 months.
