Are there any risks if you take diet pills (non stim, thermogenic, CLA and detox) without eating? The weight loss pills brand is INTEK EVOLUTION.

Be careful!: The ingredients in the INTEK products don't look bad - except in the thermogenic where there is a lot of caffeine and yohimbe (could be a problem). The bigger issue is the whole dieting thing. It is a bad idea! Treat your body right with real food and it will maintain a healthy weight. Nutritional supplements can help SUPPLEMENT a good diet but they don't replace eating well. Http://undergroundwellness. Com/just-eat-real-food/ ...Read more

Do b-12 injections help with fugue and or weight loss?

Do b-12 injections help with fugue and or weight loss?

Not really unless...: You have anemia from a vitamin B12 deficiency. Then they would help with the fatigue associated with the anemia. But there is no convincing evidence that supplemental B12, given by injection or pill, helps fatigue or weight loss. Surprisingly, it is taken quite frequently for these conditions, and any perceived benefit should probably be chalked up to placebo affect. Best wishes:) ...Read more
