Cortney is 100% RIGHT ON!! Ditch the "Diet Pills" ASAP---before you mess up your metabolism.
Who convinced you that they are "supplements" that will give you energy anyway ?? What you need for energy is a small 'breakfast" about 30 min before your workout. It really does not need to be anything fancy or of a large quantity. A glass of (soy/almond) milk or a half cup of OJ and one of the light, but balanced carb/protein bars will do the trick--we're talking 100-300 calories. Not into that--try a banana--or an English muffin/or gluten-free bread slice with 1 Tbls Peanut Butter or 1 oz of melted cheese--oops that's dairy....how about an egg?!
As for an appetite suppressant...you need to simply eat healthy throughout the day. Try smaller meals, evenly spaced for a continuous supply of nutrients and carbohydrates ---that's what will keep your appetite in check....
Wishing you good health, and an even healthier Lifestyle! patti

I don't advise using supplements like the ones you mentioned. They are overpriced snake oil that won't really help you in the long run.
In order to lose weight, and keep it off permanently, you have to get out of the "diet" mentality, and start thinking of it as a lifestyle.
You will get the results you want if you continue to follow your healthy diet and exercise program that you said you are already following. If you need some added energy, first and foremost make sure you are getting adequate sleep, then if needed, and you are ok with it, have some green tea.
best of luck

I have recently tried two diet pills - Velocity and Oxy Elite Pro. Velocity was working great for me, at first. I had energy and had to remind myself to eat. But, after about 2 weeks, it started to wear off. On top of that, you're supposed to take it after eating breakfast. My best time to work out is first thing in the morning and I can't work out after eating! Bleh! I decided to try Oxy.. but that you're supposed to take around 15 minutes before eating. Still not going to get the energy I need for a work out. I'm following a pretty healthy diet, and exercising, but I need help with energy and appetite supressant. Can anyone make any recommendations? Preferably natural. I am Gluten Free, Dairy Free, can only take soy in small amounts, and fake sugar (even the ones that claim to be "natural" are a no go. Any suggestions? Thanks!
