Keep at it: Diet pills are either ineffective or dangerous for the most part. If you are successfully losing weight (albeit slowly) on your current diet and exercise regimen, i would stick to that. This is the safest way to obtain weight loss that has the best chance of being a long-lasting phenomenon.

Consider herbs: I don't recommend any of the pharmaceutical diet pills as they can have serious side effects. Certain herbs are proven to support weight loss, but only when combined with a healthy diet ; exercise- see http://bit.Ly/178bmuf re: your diet consider dr. Fuhrman's diet: http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht dr. Weil has useful info: http://huff.To/19ygs8y- see his "discuss that" link in his article.
