    Personally I have never tried it. I worked hard naturally to get to where I am. What do you guys think? Is it safe? Does it work? If so, what do you recommend?

    I think that the most important thing when considereing diet pills is to speak with your doctor and understand what is in them. Some us natural ingrediants others can potentially have harsh chemicals. I personally have not used them but that doesnt mean that the though hasnt crossed my mind from time to time. There are hundreds out there and when considering them it is important to do your research on them and make sure that they are approperate for your body and that they are safe.

    Most pills that are marketed as diet pills are thermogenics. They're okay, but they're never a replacement for a sensible diet and good exercise habits. People who take these thermogenics and expect to lose weight without doing any work are in for a rude awakening. I've used all kinds of thermogenics, but find them to be too strong. Now I stick with a double espresso and some fruit before a workout.

    Indeed, I have heard "Alli diet pills" are quite popular these days. Honestly, I am getting a bit lazy these days to go to the gym. It has crossed my mind for the last couple of days to whether I should try it or not. It is very tempting.

    You can't use diet pills to overcome a poor diet, just like you can't out-train a poor diet.

    That said, if your diet is on point and your training is serious, thermogenic supplements will definitely give you a boost. All supplements, really, are most effective for people who are already serious about lifting and dieting. The improvements won't be huge, but they're definitely there. I cycle through different thermogenics, myself, and I definitely see them working in conjunction with a serious diet and exercise regimen.

    I do workout a lot, twice a day to be exact. I guess my body is use to the same routine and I try to change it up and intensify it, but after doing this for quite some time I just don't see any results(fat loss wise). I also eat very healthy. Maybe I should give it a try.

    I personally would avoid any kind of pills. I remember taking sleeping aides when I was in law school and I hated (hated) it. Today, it bothers me to take almost anything, aside from vitamins. I would encourage you to shift your workouts so you continue to face a challenge with them. If you really do want to take weight reduction pills, I'd talk to your doctor first.

    Your solution might be to do a more varied routine. As far as improved fat loss - look into OxyElite Pro. I prefer it much more over most thermogenics, but make sure to start with low doses to assess tolerance.

    Diet pills are just a misspelling. The "t" at the end is a typo.

    mmmm

    Well, I ordered some fenphedra in 8th grade. It was like rocket fuel and all the fat fell off of my body. Even after the bottle was empty I was hungry a lot less and wanted to be active a lot.

    But it only works once. I have an extremely high stimulant tolerance now. so forget about ever getting a boost from a pre workout supplement or another diet pill again!

    I wouldn't use them. I lost 80 lbs and have kept it off by tracking what I eat and working out 6 days a week. Pills aren't needed.

    For the most part, they are not safe. Dietary supplements aren't really regulated and even if they're found to be dangerous, it's often difficult to ban them.

    why be like so many and reach for a pill, that's too easy - when you can train your body (and mind) to increase it's energy level and metabolism in earned time and more naturally

    Best avoided. They don`t make a big difference to losing weight, but can have side effects.

    As said above, there`s no subsitute to exercise and good diet.

    Good way to make money if you sell them. Everyone wants to believe in a fitness shortcut.

    Well my opinion if you go to the Dr. and you are prescribed an appetite suppressant I believe it is OK. I went to a Dr the 1st of year and I am on 37.5 mg phentermine once a day. I have lost over 40 lbs and still have 20 lbs to go but I know you must exercise to keep if off or it will be back worse than it was before.

    there are tons of incredibly dangerous diet pills available for anyone to purchase. DNP for example, is still sometimes used - as it was in the early 1900s until people started dying.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2,4-Dinitrophenol

    it allows protons to cross the cell membrane without going through an ATP pump, and when this gradient is disrupted, all hell breaks loose. cells need that gradient to make ATP. bad, bad stuff. but you can buy it online!
