Instead of eating healthy -- do you use dietary supplements like diet pills to lose weight fast? Do you find it helpful or not? Would you recommend it to others or not?

i used dietary pills before but it did'nt work for me...its all in the mind...even if you use some but if you're thinking of foods and you're hungry ...then...there is no use...so it is better to lessen what ur eating and have a good exercise...

for dietary supplements, as to anything that is taken in excess is not good. i myself take dietary supplements like calcium for my bones since I always drink coffee and reminding ourselves that it's a supplement not a replacement for food

i don't recommend taking diet pills, it makes people lazy in exercising, but if one really needs it for health purposes, let's say obesity, I would recommend to make a habit of exercising at least 3 times a day for only 15mins, then gradually increase the time in a couple of weeks. Gradual is very important because the person only needs to accomplish is the habit of exercising, one needs to accept that before taking diet pills.

Dietary supplements are not similar to diet pills in any way. These are produced mainly to supplement or to provide the necessary nutirents whether it be vitamins, minerals, amino acids etc. that are lacking in an individuals diet. These are helpful in a way that they fill in the recommended dietary allowance for all the nutrients needed by the body to function properly. Without these energy consumption and absorption will not be optimal.

I think that diet pills are terrible. They just surpress your appetitie which isn't natural at all. They do have added vitamins, but it is much better to get these from your food rather than a supplement. I would never recommend them to others.
