In brief: Generally not

A high fiber diet can help to quell the appetite; fiber bulks up when mixed with water, increasing the feeling of "fullness.
" diet pills do not help with hunger pains, and without lifestyle changes (diet/exercise), in the long-term are not helpful. Diet pills should be used only under medical observation, and only when the risks of obesity outweigh the significant risks of diet pills.

In brief: Diet pills

Diet pills do not really help in dieting and usually are dangerous.
Ask your doctor about safe methods of dieting. Read about meditation and stress control to help you diet. Look into programs similar to weight watchers if you are dieting to lose weight.
