    Has anyone used any Diet Pills that work? I also want to hear about the ones that have not worked. Has anyone ever gone to one of those diet Doctors? I googled what diet pills work but just bring up a bunch of aids I want to here from Real (Jock) people.

    In combination with diet and exercise yes. The last I used were Stimerex and Lipodrene with ephedra. Its been a few years but I remember being satisfied with both.

    Thanks, BAHBAA, your comments are very helpful. Diet and Exercise are a given. The phrase "Diet and Exercise" has become just another colloquialism, like you have to "crawl before you can walk". I think most of us come here for deeper insight.

    Some diet pills help you with sticking to your diet and give you energy to exercise.

    I went to a Diet Doctor and she gave me pills that were very helpful, it took my appetite away and gave me energy. I cam get info if anyone needs it. In the end I lost about 60 pounds (with pills diet and exercise). I have stop taking the pills but found that they helped me learn how not to pig out if that makes sense.

    What about performance. Creatine? Growth Hormone.

    Congrats on your progress!! Dropping 60 lbs is quite an accomplishment. Now...I am going to address the octopus in the kitchen sink, so don't take this the wrong way; what do you mean by 'pigging out'?

    If you have appetite management issues related to emotional eating or a hormone-endocrine imbalance, then no diet pill will help you maintain your gains (or loss) over the long run.

    Since you indicate that you are working with a professional, you may want to explore the underlying causes of the behavior rather than the behavior itself.

    Get a good lookover by your doctor and then try the Zone Diet. It is really designed to be a long term/permanent routine and should take care of most of your craving issues. Exercise and keep busy.

    As said above, if you have metabolism or endocrine issues you have to deal with that. My diabetes has me constantly hungry and that is a real battle to fight.

    Good luck!

    To answer all yes I work out daily and I have been doing better in the kitchen. I do not think I have any emotional issues as it relates to food anymore than any other American. There is a great book by Michael Moss called SALT,SUGAR FAT How the Food Giants hooked us. The other explains Food Companies have maniupulate sugar salt and fat to get us addicted to Food the same way tobbaco companies got Americans hooked on cigaretts.The other further explains that a lot of Tobacco guys went into Food Production.

    I am a classic Endomorph I have to work really hard to lose weight and if I eat unhealthy for more than a couple of days it shows. So I tend to need appettite control supplements to help eat healthy and stop the crazy cravings.

    But my approach to fitness is I want an atheltes body so I have to behave like an athelete.

    So the advice about diet and excerise is appreciated but for many people that is not enough. So I just want to hear from those who have used diet pills including the ones that do not work. I go to a professional but they are expensive.

    I would stay away from over the counter diet pills and instead consult your physician as to what to do. You never know how these pills will react once you take them.

    #NBCNIGHTLYNEWS NBC just aired a story showing that prep cookies could be just as addictive as cocaine. Studies show that oreos stimulate the pleasure center of the brain. Oreo is the number one selling cookie in America.
