Hi, I know this is kind of a passing phenomena, with the whole ephedra ban and everything. Just wondering what peoples feelings are on diet pills and if they have tried if they have had any success with them and what ones they were and would they recommend to other people.

I don't believe that there is any diet pill that is safe. All will have side effects, some serious. Anything new on the market I wouldn't try, since it hasn't been around long enough to see the long term effects. I think if you are looking to lose weight, the best thing is to consult a nutritionist about a menu to meet your needs, and get support from the people around you. Having someone to do it with makes it easier. Don't diet, because that makes you feel like you are depriving yourself of something. Just make lifestyle changes, like substituting healthier snacks for junk food.
