Has Anyone Ever Lost Even 1 Oz. Using Diet Pills?

Sun Sep 09, 2001 8:38 pm

Just curious to know if any of you have been swindled into buying some of those so-called diet pills (or capsules)....that miraculously shed hundreds of pounds off of a person in a mere 6 seconds!!??

I recall a few years ago buying some of this crap, losing only my $$$!! (I admit, I was a sucker.)

Heck, with those "shellfish" capsules, all you ever get done is taking them! Dozens per day; but not a single pound lost!!

Anybody else ever use them? How did you do? Any results?

After you pull a wad of cash out of your wallet, you will weigh less.

I lost 25 lbs. in about 6 weeks on a protein diet. It worked great for me.

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.

Nope.
Laxatives, now there's the answer. Joking, although one tries several insane things to lose weight during wrestling season.

All those pills are designed to keep us coming back for more, they go bankrup if we get healthy.

Are there any anti-diet pills so one can suddenly gain wieght/muscle if they have an eating disorder?

I took Metabo-Lite and lost 35 pounds... take that while also exercising and get into a routine of exercising, so once you stop taking them the weight is easier to keep off.
