Did you take fat pills to gain the weight?

Just eat properly and save the money you will waste on the "slimming pills". Spend it on fruit, veg and meat.

A very sensible response IMHO. Most slimming pills on the market are around 20 quid and that money could be well spent on fruit/veg.

The ones that work are either basically speed (which will give you a heart attack or make you go potty) or stuff to stop you absorbing fat (which will give you slimy poo and anal leakage). Everything else is woo.


I think that was on an episode of Supersize/Superskinny where one of the people used slimming pills and ended up needing a nappy.

groder, you seem awfully defensive.

I would ask you to list what you eat during the day, but I think you would understate the amount to make it look as though you have a reasonable diet.

Looking for slimming pills rather than cutting back on what you eat? Really?

Try this, try eating cereal tonight instead of dinner. Do this every day this week, then get back to us and tell us if you lost any weight.

If you arent willing to do this, then something tells me youre just looking for an easy answer anyway so aren't worth bothering with.

I know you get a lot of flack David but that was a rather good post and point.


I have a very good friend of mine that was obese (according to BMI) and was prescribed a well known diet aid. She lost over 20kg but stopped it as the side effects were too much for her to handle (everything mentioned above but also spots, bad breath, sweating issues). Everyone reacts differently but you need to be careful what you put into your body.

Nothing replaces a good diet and exercise.

I think you have hit the nail on the head there with

Pills claim to raise the heart rate and speed up metabolism. Exercise is proven to do that. Healthy eating is happy running.

Nelils - OP is too lazy to do that and wants an easy answer.

Not a good idea!

Much better with a healthy diet and exercise. Some slimming pills as mentioned above can have some very nasty side effects aswell as possibly restricting the absorption of some important nutrients.
