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...

Fake Orlistat capsules
Hello Everyone Just wanted to let you all know that you need to be aware of fake Orlistat pills being offered for sale as generics to Alli. I bought what I thought were generic Alli 120mg but was sent blue capsules filled with a white powder instead. I know for a fact that the active ingrediant in Alli (Orlistat), is actually small white bead-type drug. So, what is this powder? Only God knows! I've written my letter of complaint to the on-line pharmacy concerned, but no reply. I will see about getting my money back. ## Sorry to hear about your experience when ordering this medication. However, it is important to note that not all manufacturers are going to use the same manufacturing process when making any given medication. Rather than the bead type, they may use a different release...

cross tops speed pills
cross tops speed for weight loss due to pre-diabetic and high cholesterol ## @scoobaru, Are you referring to these?: Discuss/white-cross-energy-pills-189037.htm If so, I believe they are no longer available in most countries and Adderall is probably going to be the closest legal thing you'll find to them in this day and age with a prescription. However, if you truly do have high cholesterol, I've heard that hemp seeds can work miracles on lowering cholesterol levels if used regularly... Although so can exercise and eating right in general; same goes for pre-diabetics (type 1 or 2). So it sounds to me like simple lifestyle changes would make for a better treatment option than a banned drug that can cause heart problems, but that is up to you to decide. Hope this helps!

Day 2 on Belviq and don't feel a difference...
So I am a type 2 diabetic on the insulin pump. i just had a baby 3 months ago and was actually left thinner than before I was pregnant. Pre-pregnancy I was 219, post-pregnancy I was down to 180. Mostly the breastfeeding helped with that but couldn't after a month, milk supply went away. Saw my dr this week and got the free trial but so far I think I'm actually hungrier and still craving sweets at night. My question is, does this drug take effect immediately or is there a time frame where my cravings will start to get better? My plateu has always been 180, I'm now 186 and would love to get rid of the diabetes for good!!! So how do I know if the medicine is actually working for me or do I have to wait a little longer? ## Hello, Briana! How are you? Congratulations on the baby!...

find doctor to prescribe belviq orange county ca
Just moved to the Orange County Ca area and would like to find a Doctor who will prescribe Belviq for weight loss ## Hello, Chelle! How are you? Unfortunately, there is no directory of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. You'll really just need to see a doctor, discuss your problem and then tell them that you'd like to try it. However, you do need to meet certain criteria for it to be prescribed, such as being a certain amount overweight based on your BMI. Qysimia may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and anorexia. Do you have a PCP in your new location, yet? If so, they might be able to help, or refer you to someone that can. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area?

I am trying to find a doctor near Portland, OR that will prescribe Qsymia for me. I am severely overweight and struggle with CFS so energy is a major problem when trying to lose weight on my own. ## Hello, Christina! How are you? Unfortunately, there's no directory of doctors that I can refer to for you according to what they will or will not prescribe. The only thing you can really do is see a doctor, discuss your problem with them and ask them about trying it. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, they may prescribe it, or refer you to someone that can help. Qysimia is an extended release medication that's used to aid in weight loss. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and anorexia.

I have a bicuspid aortic valve (congenital) and want to start duromine, but the leaflet says it's contraindicated, is this really a problem, or just covering their ass. I feel my health is more at risk from my obesity than taking duromine
