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...

I wish you can help me...many thanks ## Hello, KB! How are you? Yes, from what I can find, these are listed as being weight loss pills from Mexico, but I can't find anything stating what the specific ingredients are… However, what I do know is that the FDA issue recent warnings on several of these products, due to the fact that they contained a potentially dangerous combination of ingredients, including Benzodiazepines, which carry the risk of being habit forming and are very commonly abused. I'll keep looking and see if I can find more definitive information for you. Have you ...

find doctor to prescribe belviq in lexington ky
Looking for doctor in lexington ky to prescribe belviq ## I'm looking for a doctor as well. We live in the Ontario, CA area. We have kp HMO and when I asked my doctor if she could give me a prescription, she said she couldn't. But, that what she could do was to refer me for counseling/group to show me what I should be eating. That's NOT what I need! I need something to help me curve my appetite. ## Hello, Felicia and KD! How are you both? In the U.S. any doctor can prescribe it, but you may be referred to a specialist, if you have a weight problem. Medications, such as Belviq, are not appropriate for everyone. It is also used as an adjunct to a reduced calorie diet and exercise plan. It also requires that your BMI exceeds a certain number, plus other risk factors are also ta...

The video I came across from another website concerning a diet pill that started with the letter P Is there such a video I could view this again
White diet pill, that starts with the letter P, I found on a video from the website I was in. Not sure now what the website was now. Please find if you can. ## Hello, Patsy! How are you? That's not a lot to go on. Do you remember anything else about it? Was it a prescription medication or over the counter? Was it possibly Phentermine, which is a stimulant used for weight loss that is only available by prescription? It can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, irritability and anorexia. ## No, it was a pill especially desirable for senior citizens over 55+, that would help a lot of health related problems. ## If it was purported to help many health issues, then I have to assume that it was most likely some type of natural remedy. Those are generally th...

white and blue pill with no imprint
i found this pill in my hoime can anyone tell me what it is ## I orded phentermine from india... the pachket says phentermine k-25 export quality.. no imprint on tablet . are they real? ## @Brianna, Because this pill has no identifiable markings it is going to be difficult to determine what this tablet contains, unless you would pay to have it lab tested, somewhere. One things for sure, and that is, U.S. law requires that all prescription drugs have unique letters or numbers (sometimes in addition to a logo of some kind) imprinted on the tablets or capsules so the medication can be identified by manufacturer, substance and dosage. Since this is not the case here, we can rule out the possibility of it being a US-based prescription drug; still leaving "endless" possibilities thoug...

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...

ACE diet pills effects
Hi everyone, my girl friend started taking these last week and started getting some headaches so she decided to stop. Has anyone else tried these and did they get any good results? She wants to use them to help her lose weight but doesn't like the headaches. Is it a normal side effect of this? Any other advice? ## Was she drinking enough water? Dehydration is a common cause of headaches and diet pills tend to cause it. You have to drink lots of water whenever taking supplements like this. ## I am seeing that ACE diet pills contain the following ingredients [1]: Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Chromium, Vanadium, and a "Proprietary ACE blend" of Green Tea Extract, Phenylethylamine (PEA), Trimethylxanthine, Theobromine, Methylsynepherine, Raspberry Ketone (Raztone), Green Coffee Bean...

I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, first it's important to pinpoint why you've had no appetite and how much you should actually weigh. How tall are you? Are you on any medications? Do you have any health conditions? What types of foods do you eat? There are many health conditions that could cause someone to lose weight, so it is something you should have checked out. How long of a time period did it take you to lose that much weight?

Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence, stomach pain and hypoglycemia. Your doctor will instruct you on how long you should take it.
