You loose weight while using them, sometimes (and not just in your wallet, though the greatest reduction is indeed there).
The problem is, the moment you stop using them the weight starts increasing again.
All those pills and things do is force water from your body. In fact they slightly dehydrate you, causing a loss of weight. Once you stop taking them, the body is able to replenish the unnaturally low amount of water, so your weight goes back up.

Exercise people! Diet pills are for the lazy in my opinion. And I do now what im talking about, I lost 70 pounds cycling 2 years ago in a period of two months. Its funny I sometimes see obese people cycling in hopes of loosing weight yet they are drinking regular(non diet) soft drinks at the same time.BTW, I weigh pretty much what im suppose too.

I know somebody who got a prescription for diet pills. She wasn't very big but wanted to lose a few pounds. Well, when she was on the pills, she had NO appetite, and of course lost weight. After she lost the weight and quit the pills she started to eat like a horse. One night in class she ate a whole huge roastbeef po-boy and was still hungry.
