I want to lose weight I've tried exercising dieting and nothing is working is there any pills out there that can help me lose weight?

Possibly: The usual reason diet & exercise don't work is that you need some tweaks: altering type and/or amount of exercise, altering type/amount of food. Focus here first!

This will also potentially help improve your asthma. ...Read more
