Diet (Definition)

I've been trying to lose weight for about a year now and nothing seems to work, no matter how much I diet and excersise is Hydroxycut safe now?

Won't help: While hydroxycut may be safe now, most of the over the counter diet aids are a waste of your money. If you are putting in consistent effort and not getting results, two options might be more helpful than diet pills. First is to have some visits with a nutritionist to figure out more exactly what and how much you should be eating, and maybe a trainer. Also, check with your doc about thyroid. ...Read more

Does hydroxycut really work? I've tried a few diet pills they have worked but when I stoped using them I started gaining weight again?

Does hydroxycut really work? I've tried a few diet pills they have worked but when I stoped using them I started gaining weight again?

Not much, if at all: There have been no accepted scientific trials demonstrating the effectiveness of hydroxycut. The company reports weight loss results, but there are scientific flaws in testing methods. The product contains caffeine, which may be the most active ingredient. The company has eliminated ingredients that were suspected to be harmful. Bottom line: save your money & focus on low carbs/more exercise:) ...Read more

I've been taking Hydroxycut to help with my weight loss, and it has been effective, but would I (5'8", 215lbs, 32% bf) likely be eligible for prescription diet drugs?

Prob not: Your bmi is 32. While elevated, not high enough to warrant prescription wt loss meds. Continue reg exercise. Watch the calories esp carbohydrates and keep at it. Wt does not go on over night, nor does it come off overnight. Keep up the good work. Careful with the hydroxycut as it can cause increase blood pressure and is not so good for your kidneys.

Do diet pills affect the effectiveness of birth control pills? I am contemplating taking hydroxycut max for women to help jumpstart my metabolism along with exercise and eating right but I wanted to make sure that it would not negatively affect my birth c

Do diet pills affect the effectiveness of birth control pills? I am contemplating taking hydroxycut max for women to help jumpstart my metabolism along with exercise and eating right but I wanted to make sure that it would not negatively affect my birth c

As: As far as I am aware diet pills do not interact with birth control pills, however you may wish to ask your gynecologist for another opinion. It sounds like you are on the right track with exercise and eating right. You may want to try this first before starting a diet pill. By eating five to six small meals a day you can jump start your metabolism. Also consider seeing a nutritionist for a dietary consultation.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Can I take Zoloft (sertraline) and welbutrin with diet pills? Such as xenadrine or hydroxycut? I need to lose 50 lbs. Zoloft (sertraline) has made me gain a lot of weight. But I need it for OCD and depression.

Other diet options: Exercise and a healthy weight loss diet. In my practice I generally prescribe Diethylpropion er 75 mg around 2pm. I prescribe it because of the success I've had with it in patients on psychotropics. Other options include low dose topamax, (topiramate) but make sure you are aware of all the side effects. Green coffee bean extract can help as can ashwaghanda or garcinia cambogia. ...Read more

Multivitamins: While there is no specific diet for scoliosis, a multivitamin would provide the appropriate supplement to a diet rich in fruits, vegetables & calcium sources. Your doctor should check that calcium, manganese, vitamin D and vitamin C and E levels are normal. Hence a multivitamin recommendation. Next weight bearing exercise such as walking up to 10000 steps, light jogging, aerobic ex or a class are wise ...Read more

Is hydroxycut safe?

Is hydroxycut safe?

No.: In 2009, the fda told consumers to stop taking hydroxycut because of risk of liver damage. While the company says it "reformulated" its supplement, I tell my patients to stay away from hydroxycut - there's no great evidence it works better than other weight loss interventions out there, and there is some concerning evidence that it does harm. As with many supplements, buyer beware. ...Read more
