Waist fat: If you have fat especially around your waist, it's a cue to look at the kind of food you're eating. You may be eating more processed foods and sugars than your body is good with, or drinking more alcohol too. There are no pills for spot reduction around the waist. Instead you need an entire food and exercise program to make overall changes in your body. Sorry! nutritionists & trainers can help. ...Read more

No: I don't think its wise to take drugs to try to lose weight fast. But just changing your diet drastically can help. I just saw a diet - the "virgin diet" which says if you stop eating 7 foods, for 7 days, you will lose 7 pounds. The foods to stop are - dairy, gluten, eggs, peanuts, sugar, soy, corn. These are common allergens, which contribute to weight gain. ...Read more

Lifestyle: Hi. Firstly, live right: healthy diet and regular exercise. Normal American society works against you: worthless fast food, too much of it, labor-saving devices so we can live with barely moving a muscle, etc. There are FDA-approved drugs to help with healthy lifestyle (Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate) & Belviq).

They should only be taken under the direct supervision of a physician specifically trained in their use as a part of a multi-modal treatment program including diet, exercise, ...Read more
