No goofy diets: Taking those meds wont keep you from losing weight. It always comes down to the balance of calories in and calories worked off. Try to avoid goofy diets and instead change lifestyle. Limit carbs and fast foods, try whole foods and vegies. No snacking and avoid fast foods. Work at lifestyle changes not goofy diets.
