Can I take slim quick if I'm still breastfeeding my 14 month old?

Can I take slim quick if I'm still breastfeeding my 14 month old?

I would not!: There are no reputable clinical studies available to evaluate it for effectiveness. The use of many herbal supplements in breastfeeding women is not studied. Breastfeeding burns approx 500 calories/day. It is your best dietary aid! That is the same as walking 5 miles. So count your calories properly & you'll have the easiest time losing weight in your life. Need your ht & wt to tell you cal. Amt ...Read more

Diet Pills (Definition)

Most currently FDA-approved appetite medications are dispensed by prescription due to potential side effects and contraindications. Diet pills alone are seldom successful in deriving long-term weight reduction. 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

Isis the slim fast diet safe while breastfeeding?

Isis the slim fast diet safe while breastfeeding?

Diet not safe: Its not a good idea to diet while breastfeeding. The baby on its own will be taking in anywhere from an additional 500-1000 calories a day. If your intake is suboptimal, it could affect your infant nutrition, growth and developent. The first year of infant life is too important for brain development to have you diet while breast feeding. ...Read more

I'm breastfeeding woman and I'm very slim I want to take planet Ayurveda gain weight pills tablets for women & men fast! - and they said 100% safe?

Not worth the risk: The tablets help the company get richer, not help you gain healthy weight faster. Also, these types of supplements are not regulated whatsoever. If you are still breast feeding, I would say it is not worth the risk of harming your child for something that is basically snake oil. If you really want to try it, wait until you are done breastfeeding. ...Read more

What is the best way to slim your tummy down after you have a baby, if you are not doing breastfeeding?

Depends: If you are in your early 20's you should bounce back quickly. If you are around 40 then it is going to take dieting: low carbs and high protein dieting. You also need to add cardio 4-5 times a week to help speed the process: running, elliptical, or treadmill. Also add some abdominal exercises such as situps, crunches. You can use a basketball and do situps with twists to the sides. ...Read more

Side effects in herbs of ultra berry slim diet pills?

Side effects in herbs of ultra berry slim diet pills?

Real: This is a very pricey mix of things; psyllium will bulk your stools and senna is a laxative. Claims for acai haven't stood up to examination and I doubt that mango is a real appetite suppressant. But the first two will make your gut feel different and give you the idea you've eaten something magic -- the principle of the "active placebo." it's your money. ...Read more

I am currently on Zoloft (sertraline) 50 mg and started taking slim quick pure. Is that safe for me to do and what are the side affects?

I am currently on Zoloft (sertraline) 50 mg and started taking slim quick pure. Is that safe for me to do and what are the side affects?

No idea: Slim quick pure is sold at walmart and others -- it contains many herbal components including green tea. Unfortunately this formulation doesn't appear to be standardized. So I have no idea whether using this with zoloft (sertraline) is a safe combination, or what the side effects would be -- there have been no studies on slim quick pure. Reading some of the reviews, some people have felt "jittery" though. ...Read more

I am taking the diet pill  slim quick. It is not helping with my apitite I want to eat all the time what diet pill is the best over the counter?

None: There are no diet pills either over the counter or by prescription that are effective. This is especially true if the goal is sustained and permanent weight-loss. This fact doesn't sell products or books and you won't see it on a late night infomercial. Unfortunately, at this point in time watching what goes in (calories) and increasing output (exercise to burn calories) is all there is. ...Read more

Can I drink slimming tea while breastfeeding.?

Depends: Honestly there are tons of slimming drinks out there. I'm sure some of the herbal stimulants in some of those products probably get into the breast milk and therefore may not be safe to drink while breastfeeding. Because of the lack of studies, you're best off using diet and exercise of slimming teas. ...Read more
