hi Chloeysmom:....sometimes diet pills get addicting, this is what my
fitness advisor told me....your body
gets "used" to them......and alot of
the pills on the market don't work.

What does work is eating less and exercising more, that is the true way, pills may help shed water, but it won't help with shedding fat.

Why not save your money, and just try to eat healthy and a lil' less and exercising more.

Hi,
I have lost 20 lbs by eating clean - that is not eating processed foods, just whole foods that I prepare myself. Also important was working our with light weights. Check out the book, "Strong Women Stay Slim" by Miriam Nelson. The routines are easy and only take about 20 minutes a few days a week.

A diet rich in fruits and vegetables and lifting dumbbells is almost like finding the fountain of youth. Most people express surprise when I tellthem I am almost 45.

chloey:

NO NO NO diet pills!!

no matter what you think you can take they damage your heart and nervouse system, and being in the mental condition you do not need that kind od stimulation..

camers is right choose a good diet,

i have to eat 6 small meals a day cause im diabetic.
but if you follow the same rule you can loose weight,
always breakfast, lunch and dinner, fruit and veggies to snack, no soda,
not even diet
water water water...
i use those sugar free teas, mostly green tea..

get rid of sugar, limit carbs ,

You will be fine..

Good luck..
Love Kasie

None of the diet pills are really designed to work. You can become severely dehydrated, experience terrible stomach issues suxh as an explosive... ummmm tummy ache, as well as risk heart issues.
The "Safest" thing to use is chromium Picolinate, and eat less, exercise more. Chromium is Natural, and diabetics use it to keep blood sugars in check and it foes suppress the appetite.
But, really, using pills or any other "Quick fix" thing does not help, and if it does, It is usually only for a very short period of time, and the risks arent worth it at all.

I KNOw how overwhelming it is to need to lose weight, but starting small, and not trying to do it all at once will work best.
Perhaps start a journal of what your daily food consumption is, Start keeping track of you carb intake, and fat grams.
Start to replace certai nthings with other healthier options while adding a 10 minute walk once or twice a day.
For instance, switch from whole milk to 2%, use fat free half and half, have a yogurt and a banana instead of a donut.. those kinds of things start ot add up and make a difference.

When I lost 45 pounds, I was decreasing a lot of fat, switched ot a primarily organic diet and cut waaay back on dairy, "white foods" IE: rice,potatoes,milk,white breads, cheeses.
ehilr esking about 2-4 miles a day.((Can no longer walk that much... but just giving examples.

I started by cutting out fried foods, then red meat, then was paying a lot of attention to serving sizes, still allowing myself to eat certain things, but only having the portion size, and or eating half of what I had.gradually only eating organic foods, cut out 80% of dairy, substitued with soy milk, and no longer ate like a brick of cheese in two days.Even switching to black teas or green teas instead of coffee, and no longer deinking diet coke helped a lot. I now drink diet coke again, and eat re meat occassionally, but i now buy only lean meats. Switched from chops to carrot sticks, and if i HAD to fill a salty "junk food " craving, I would get the baked verson of chips, would only get the smallest bag, and or got organic varieties of snacks.
increasing water untake is VERY important, as well as exercise, it will increase your heart rate, and increase your metabolism to encurage weight loss, and an overall better feeling.Skipping meals and starving yourself is counter productive, becasue your body will hold on to and store fats if it feels like it's being ignored, and you can lose muscle mass, and can effect your bones.
So dont skip meals.increasing fresh fruits and vegetables will also help, but you do need protien for energy as well, but just eat healthier versions of proteins.
~~ hope tis helps ya a little bit. Making an appointment wit your primary care physician can be very helpful as well, she/he may be able to set you up with a nutritionist/dietician.
A lot of my friends had great luck withthe South Beach doet as well as weight watchers.
((((Hang in there)))
You CAN do it!!1))))))

Yes eating well and excercise do work. However in conjunction with a green tea extract tract the pounds may melt away faster. I actually just bought a bottle of trimspa yesterday. I will let you know how well it works. Today I am 196 lbs and 37" waist.

Strength training is key. More muscle burns more fat, and women don't bulk up from it.

Look up HIGH FRUTCOSE CORN SYRUP on the net. You need to stay away from this stuff. Its in all sodas, juices, crackers, cookies...etc. Its a sugar replacement and all the big guys are making money on us getting fat. Stay with your whole foods. Basically educate yourself on food. You will find whats good for you and whats not. Like everybody says on here, exercise exercise exercise. The more muscle you gain the faster your fat burns. And don't use the excuse that you are big boned. It doesn't work. If you were standing as a skeleton you sure would be skinny....right. No excuses needed to lose weight. The more fat you have, the slower your metabolism so therefore the more fat you gain. You must exercise to gain muscle to start burning up fat.....Good luck and I know you can do it. There is much support on here for ya...

Hi CM -

I have tried every diet known to man (and woman), and none of them worked until I just stopped dieting. Now I eat when I'm hungry (only when I am REALLY hungry), and don't eat when I am not. I don't let the clock or a diet book or the people around me decide when I will or will not eat. Also, I have learned to STOP eating when I start feeling the slighest bit satisfied, and try to never get "full", even if I have to "waste" food by throwing it out. (It's just as much of a waste if I eat it and it turns to fat).

As a result, I only eat once or twice a day, and never between meals. I find that by "waiting", and passing up snacks and treats, I look forward more to having a great meal that I really want...the other stuff will always be there.

When I do eat, I have whatever I want, but do try to include as many veggies as possible. At first, I didn't, but after a while I started to crave them. You would be surprised how much your body will tell you if you listen to it.

A lot of people will say that it's bad for the metabolism, and that eating several small meals a day is better - and while this may be true for some people, it doesn't work for me, because it makes food way too big a part of my life. This is why most diets don't work, because you end up obsessing about when and what you can eat next, and constantly thinking about what you "can't" have. Pretty soon, life becomes about food, and not about you.

The key is to know that YOU are in control, food is not, and it will always be there to enjoy.

Hope this helps...

D dog

I have tried diet pills in the past and all they do is raise my blood pressure. If you do decide to try some pills, make sure you check your blood pressure regularly. Even though the bottle says there is no ephedrine in it, there are herbs that do the same thing.

goodluck

...just a note... if you are really lacking energy, adding vitamin E can help add some of the energy you are lacking while helping your hair skin and nails.water soluable vitamin E is "better" becvause it doesnt get stored in your "fat cells.(( better for you overall thn adding "fake " stimulants. or too much caffeine.

Another thing that helps is to eat protein and a little fat during the day, and no carbs...this helps to control your appetite so you are not super straved and munching all evening...

Not to jump on the "low carb" bandwagon, but it does help with the blood sugar thing...

Go and get the book "Body for Life" by Bill Phillips....This book is true and to the point. It doesn't give you any run around or you don't even have to measure your food on a scale. Its very simple to follow his book. It basically tells you to eat 6 times a day and will tell you about whats good for your body and whats not. Its a must book to get.....It changed my habits big time because it was so easy to follow...

Just from my experience, I have tried trimsoa, zantrex, diet fuel, and hydroxycut. I am small but I gain weight easily. I found that I have and addictive personality and I felt I HAD to take diet pills or I would get fat. I am only 25 now and even when I was 18 I realized I was getting severe chest pains and being very mood. I admit I am still tempted to take them when I gain a few pounds but I try to fight the urge. I have to agree a protein diet and exercise works great.

Hugs, Lost
