Phentermine diet pills? Is it a fast way to lose weight?

Phentermine diet pills? Is it a fast way to lose weight?

No: I would strongly avoid any and all dietary supplements as they will not provide long term weight loss and could possibly even be harmful. Weight loss requires dietary changes and moderate exercise - with a larger focus on making dietary changes. Those who look to pills even to "help" with weight loss usually are not truly ready for making the changes necessary for long term weight loss success. ...Read more

Not helpful: Since that medication is over the counter, who knows what's in it. There is no nonprescription weight loss pill that has been shown to be effective in scientific trials. They are also not evaluated by the fda. Could they be harmful? Sure. More importantly, they won't be helpful. The only thing that will lose weight is your wallet. ...Read more

Can people who lose weight with diet pills look different than people who lose weight naturally?

Can people who lose weight with diet pills look different than people who lose weight naturally?

Tough question: Since most diet pills don't actually work, at least in the long term, the glib answer is that those who use them look different by being heavier. In general, the impact of weight loss on looks depends on how one does it. Calorie restriction alone can cause loss of both muscle and fat; adding exercise can sustain and even add muscle while reducing fat, which leads to a better look, overall. ...Read more

I need to lose 15 pounds in a week. I weight 150 and im 5'2". What can I do? What diet pills do you recommend? Does grapefruit help to lose weight?

Probably wont happen: Probably won't happen unless you starve yourself and don't eat anything for a week. Even then, losing 10% of your body weight in one week is very unhealthy. Diet pills like Phentermine don't so much burn calories as they do curb appetite. Laxatives and diuretics will cause dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities and possibly arrhythmias. Rethink plan and try 15 lb over 3 months probably safer. ...Read more
