I already knew they're false..It's a fake way to lose weight. They just block nutrients from coming into your system along with H2O. That's what happens when you take them, most of the time, with most of the weight-loss pills/whatever. I never took them..even though I guess I'm kinda realizing I'm not fat enough to take them anyway      :D

Diet pills are only good if you want a quick boose of energy and caffeine.  I don't suggest buying diet pills anymore because they took the ephedra out of the, and ephedra felt good =p

Well, I think all weight loss solutions are Bull Shit. The only way people should lose weight is by running and eating healthy. I swear, if i see another girl at my school take weight loss pills, I'm going to kill myself.

If a diet pill makes one of the following claims, it is most likely to be false, and you should be weary of that product. There are many diet scams out there, and it is important to be an informed consumer.


1. The product will cause weight loss of two pounds per week or more without dieting or exercise.

2. The product will cause substantial wight loss no matter what or how much the consumer eats.

3. The product will cause permanent weight loss, even after the consumer stops using the product.

4. The product will block the absorption of fat or calories to enable consumers to lose substantial weight.

5. The product safely enables the consumer to lose more than three pounds per week for more than four weeks.

6. The product cuases substantial weight loss for all users.

7. The product will cause substantial weight loss by wearing it on the body or rubbing it into the skin.
