None: There are no totally safe effective diet pills, particularly the otc garbage that's sold in local stores, by your friends, advertised on tv or on the internet. Why look for pills, why not get on a regimen of diet and exercise instead. It actually can work and won't harm you.

Diet pills: There are many diet pills available but almost all of them have bad side effects. There is nothing better than eating the right food observing correct calorie counts for age, drinking lots of water and engaging in at least one hour of strenuous physical activity a day. Refrain from all kinds of soda and juices.
