In brief: Depends

Why are you eating? If you are eating for any reason other than hunger and you are obese, then you need help.
Diet pills work, but only temporarily. The most effective treatment is a lifestyle change. If i offer you a million dollars to loose 5 pounds this month, would you do it? If so, what is your life worth? Start with a call to your family doctor. Consider counseling, it really helps.
