    Hello, Kyle. This is a great review of diet pills. I’m like you, I did try them in my younger, crazy days for energy. They worked, I stayed awake for 3 days, but when I can down it hit me hard and I was in the hospital. I don’t recommend any diet pill, because you really don’t know what you’re getting. Thanks for sharing!

      I think we all did at some point, I even tried ephidrine at one point that was a horrible idea…but yes it worked simply because it got your heart racing. Fake energy.

      If you want to lose weight it comes down to choices. Choosing the right foods, choosing not to eat when you are hungry, and choosing to go to the gym to work out instead of watching TV. A pill is just a false way of telling yourself you are making progress.

    It’s very disheartening to find out that these pills don’t work especially when you actually fall for the hype and part with your hard earned cash! The bottom line is that if you want to lose weight it’s 80% what you eat and 20% exercise.

      This is very true Alanna, the cycle will continue because by nature people are (a) lazy when it comes to dieting (b) would rather take a pill for pretty much any problem they have in life. Put these two things together and you have a thriving diet pill market.

      At the end of the day anyone that has lost weight knows that exercise is not the best way to do it. Eating less is. If you have ever tried to burn 500 calories it is not that easy, but driving by McDonalds and grabbing yourself a cup of (no sugar) coffee is simple. Mindset pays when it comes to losing weight.
