Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated and supervised fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight. Dieting is often used in combination with physical exercise to lose weight, commonly 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-calo...

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...

dinintel 30mg and asthma
1 Reply RSS
I would like to know if dinintel 30mg is safe to take since I have asthma and what are the side effects to look out for? ## Hello, Max! How are you? Dinintel is listed by the FDA as containing the active ingredient Clobenzorex. The FDA classifies it as a stimulant that is used to aid in weight loss. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, nervousness, mood swings, anorexia and insomnia. It is not available in the U.S. and should never be used, without your doctor's approval. These stimulants create the risk of dangerous side effects, such as elevated blood pressure and heart rate, which in some cases have been fatal. Is there anything else I can help with?

Been belviq for 6 months
2 Replies RSS
I have been on belviq for 6 months, have lost 30 pounds between August 2014 & December 2014. Since then I have lost and gained the same 2-3 pounds. I log food intake with a 1250 cal low carb diet and with cardio & strength training 3-4x a week. I drink plenty of water daily 75-90 oz. there are several women who are in the same holding pattern, why? ## Hello, Sherry! How are you? Hitting a plateau point is pretty common in any weight loss regimen. Your body gets used to whatever you've been doing and hits a point where it starts trying to maintain, rather than keep losing. It's just a biological protection mechanism. Many have reported hitting it for awhile, then having improvement again around the one year mark. Some people even worked with their doctors to take a break ...

Phen Chrom

Does anyone know what the dosages are for phenchrom. I've been reading about it and want to try it but my doctor doesn't know the dosage amounts to prescribe. Can anyone help with this? ## Phen/Chrom contains Phentermine and Chromium Picolinate, the Chromium is added, because it is believed to help improve the use of insulin in the body, which can also aid with weight problems. It's not listed in any prescription drug information, so I am not even sure if this combination is available in the U.S. Have you tried asking your pharmacist about it? ## 37.5 is my dose... i love it!! ## I have high blood pressure which I take meds for and it's under control.... if I take phen chrome will this effect my high blood pressure? Do u know any one that takes blood pressure med and tak...

Side Effect Belviq
1 Reply RSS
I took my 1st dose of belviq yesterday and 2nd one this morning. I have already had 3 instances of horrible diarrhea. Is this common and does it go away? The only other side effect I feel is a slightly irritated throat. ## Hello Newgirl70! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you've had, that would be very annoying. Diarrhea is a common side effect of Belviq, as listed by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, hypertension, rash, back pain and fatigue. They are usually transient and should improve or go away entirely, once your body gets used to the medication, but that may take about 4 to 6 weeks. If they get worse, or continue past that, you should speak to your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Fake Orlistat capsules
122 Replies RSS
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...
