Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight. Dieting is often used in combination with physical exercise to lose weight in those who are overweight or obese. Some people, however, follow a diet to gain weight (usually in the form of muscle). Diets can also be used to maintain a stable body weight. Diets to promote weight loss are generally divided into four categories: low-fat, low-carbohydrate, low-calorie, and very low calorie...

small round pink pill labelled phentermine
the label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many websites but most phentamine pills are white and blue. can anyone help me identify this pill ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but was p...

Fentermina and Acxion
Just wonder what type of medication this was? ## Now I don't know what Acxion is but I do know that Fentermina is the same as Phentermine, a diet pill which reduces the appetite. Maybe Acxion is something along the same lines? Good Luck! ## I WAS TAKING ACXION (FENTERMINA FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND LOST 59 LBS IN JUST 4 MONTHS. YUP I SURE DIID FROM A SIZE 12 TO A SIZE 2. I FEEL GREAT AND I AM SO ENERGETIC. I AM ALWAYS ON THE GO GO GO. I AM NO LONGER TAKING THE PILLS, BUT I WOULD BUY THEM ACROSS THE BORDER, JUST 28.00 FOR THE BOX OF 30 PILLS, 1 PILL A DAY.

I have also been taking phentermine for about 2 months now, and yes, the medicine can be great, but the side effects aren't always pretty. when i first started taking them, i had a headache, was super thirsty, and felt like i could crawl out of my skin! I now only get an occasional headache and still deal with the insomnia. what dosage are you on? maybe you should start small, say 18 mg and then move on to 30 when that doesn't work anymore, then 30.7 (...

what are the blue specks for in phentermine
What are the blue specks for in phentermine? ## Hello, Brando! How are you? They are just a coloring agent that the manufacturer used to make their tablets stand out from the others on the market. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, headache, anorexia, nervousness and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?

lo dini
Can I take dinintel and drink apple cider vinegar? ## Hello Monique! How are you? Natural produces, such as the ACV are not tested for possible problems and interactions with medications, as is done with prescription drugs, thus, I don't have this information for you. Have you tried asking your doctor or pharmacist? ## I think as long as you're taking the acv in reasonable amounts then you should be okay. Remember that it is made from pressed and fermented apples, and is slightly acidic in ph. In other words, it's natural and is like eating food. There are supposed to be lots of health benefits to taking it regularly, so just remember to follow recommendations for both your med and whatever other dietary supplements you are taking. Like Verwon said, when in doubt just double...

Fruta Bio
It seems that the new replacement is fruta bio. Anyone tried it yet? ## I'm seeing this all over China import sites as well. One product listing states "The capsules and the effect are totally the same as Fruta Planta. The box, instructions, and the inner packages are different." It also states "No record by the FDA" (LOL) Some ingredients listed are: fruit lemon, pectin, balsam pear, radish, fruit, spirulina powder. What I am really curious about is whether or not the Fruta Bio contains Sibutramine, which is what got the Fruta Planta banned by the FDA in the first place. I have not tried it myself, but I am wondering the same thing, if anybody else has tried or compared it to its predecessor? My hunch at this point is S-C-A-M. ## I have been using it for about a mon...

weight loss pill ## how do you take these pills and what r they for. ## WELL THIS IS A DIET PILL THAT WAS TAKING OF THE MARKET IN TH U.S. BACK IN 1989 FOR THE REASON THAT IT WAS HURTING EITHER UR LUNGS ECT. IT HAS A LAXITIVE IN IT AND WAS KNOWN TO HELP YOU LOSE UP TO 6 LBS A WEEK,WAS RX FOR THE OVER WEIGHT PEOPLE(OB) ## This drug, however, is still available in Mexico, as well as several other countries, so unfortunately, those who self-medicate, for whatever reason they are doing so, can pick it up there very cheaply. In most cases, you can get away with carrying small amounts, around 3 months worth or less, of a drug into the US, without having it seized or questioned by customs. Customs agents are not trained to keep track of which drugs are or are not legal in the US, and if someone...

Js Slim capsules
is it dangerous to use ## I'm actually having trouble finding information on this. I can't find an official website on the product, I've only found an auction, where a person was selling it and they listed the ingredients as being: sweet potato fiber, fuling poris, bitter orange, lotus leaf, rhizoma alismatis and hawthorn.

delganex dominican diet pills
its a dominican diet pill please help me find it ## I recently purchased Delganex diet pills from a friend who went to D.R. I was wondering when is the best time during the day to take them. So far I've taken them in the morning before breakfast. Is it better maybe in the afternoon so it may last at its peak for the rest of the day and night?Thanks ## This actually contains the prescription medication Sibutramine, commonly sold in the U.S. under the brand name Meridia. It is an appetite suppressant. Since it is related to Amphetamines, it is generally not recommended to be taken at night, because it can cause insomnia. This really should not be used without the approval and supervision of your doctor. Was this prescribed or did you just order it? ## any one knows where in the us I c...
