Isn't it amazing what we will fork out for diet-pills? We put more effort into earning that money than we'd have to spend on the work-out that would get us the same effect. And most of the time the exercise isn't half as dreary as we think, it's just getting up and getting out our exercise stuff that's so hard to do.
Thanks for the article! I doubt I'd ever really buy diet pills because there are a hundred things I'd rather spend my money on. But the ads _are_ tempting (well, a lot of experts are paid good money to make them so) and it's good to be reminded that it's all a hoax.

It would be nice to see some research on Qivana. Thirty-two years of scientific research for re-setting your metabolism can't be all bad and all natural too!
I've always shied away from supplements. Glad to see that my natural instincts are supported here. KUDOS for posting such a revealing article that the food/supplement industry will try to dispute/won't be happy about!! Don't give in, Spark! Millions of people depend on your truthful advice.
HCG is a crock. It's supposedly watered down pregnancy hormone extracted from pregnant women's pee. You lose weight because you're on a 500 calorie fast. They should just call it what it is: a Very Low Calorie Diet.
Pregnant women usually gain weight, not lose it. That's clue #1 that the diet is a sham.
It was a big old whoopde do at my church and everyone was doing it and becoming an "independent distirbutor'. I don't know anyone who who's been on the diet that didn't end up going off of it because they were starving. Whatever weight they lost they gained back within a month.
ANY diet will work if you stick to it, but if you don't have a plan for KEEPING the weight off, you'll just tear your body up with fad yo-yo dieting. If you are going to fast or go on a VLCD, there are healthy ways to do it.
If diet pills really help you, you may be hyperactive. They contain a stimulant, which can help hyperactive people focus. You should check with your doctor to see if you should actually be on medication for your disorder. If you're having problems with chocolate, try eating chocolate only once a day, at the same exact time--either in the morning or the afternoon. They contain caffeine, the same thing as in coffee. So the cravings you get for your chocolate could be more than about something sweet, and a specific taste. Just once a day, and your cravings should go down!
I LOVE my diet pills and caffiene. I could never reach my goals without them. I NEED an appetite suppressant and stimulant to help my cravings. The key is to choose wisely though. Diet pills are NOT for everybody... But theybsure are for me.
