Im not overweight but do have some weight to lose. Ive been eating healthier and exercising for about 4 months now and have lost a total of about twelve pounds, Id like to drop another 8-12 pounds. Im mainly looking for a product to boost energy and has an appetite suppressant. I can drink water until im sick, and still feel hungry afterwords.. so, please dont say drink more water. I also take in plenty of protein, so neither of those are an issue.

C. Tripp: You won't like my answer, but I tried all the diet pills under the sun and they all have bad side effects. Any time now, there will be people posting and touting their own pills. You sound like you are doing great..are you keeping your calories too low? That can stall you. Also, it's really okay to be hungry once in a while. What has worked for me (and before anyone blasts me, I said works for me) is keeping the calories to 1400, but eating 6 small meals a day, so I am never famished. I also go to the gym 5 or 6 times a week. Used to hate it, now I love it. I won't say "drink more water" because it doesn't work for me either. :)

I tried Phentermine or Adipex (prescribed by my doctor) for 3 months and followed a 1500 calorie diet, I lost 60+ lbs. I exercised maybe 4-6 times a week. They do make your mouth dry so if you don't have a problem drinking water that's a plus. Good luck

Healthy Trim worked for me! I lost about 3 pounds a week on those and I didn't diet and only exercised a little bit. I recommend them! But you have to follow the directions exactly. Take 2 pills first thing in the morning and don't eat or drink anything but water for 3 hours. After that you can eat or drink anything you like but no caffine.

Are you sure that your nutrition is sound? I find that most people think they are eating well when in reality they aren't.

Call me what you will for posting a hyperlink, but Dr. Beradi knows his stuff. Once you truly get your nutrition down, then you can look to exercise and diet pills if you want.

I just finished reading The Decaf Diet: Is Caffeine Making You Fat? which aims specifically at reducing hunger to curb overeating naturally. The author cites "the most extensive" supplement study to date completed in June or July I believe that found that none of these supplements were effective for weight loss.

I think this is it on webmd - http://www.webmd.com/diet/news/20100712/study-casts-doubt-on-weight-loss-supplements

I can't agree with slw more. I've been on what feels like every diet pill under the sun. They made me feel crazy. I promised myself never again. And actually, once I did, I lost 30 pounds. Becoming vegetarian helped the most, but even before that I was losing weight steadily by avoiding processed foods and extra salt.

Good luck either way!

Panthor: I tried the old Phen Phen..I loved it, but when I went off it, oh my. I practically had my husband and I in divorce court during the first 2 days of getting off of them. The over the counter ones just make me feel angry. It's all horrible. It simply takes a change in style of (usually portion does the trick) eating and moving more. Also, I remember climbing some stairs when on Phen Phen and I thought I was going to pass out. It was weird stuff.

Yeah, just a short lived side effect that went away in a matter of days. That's when I learned exercise, watching portions and eating whole foods pretty much does the trick. For me anyway. No more pills.

I never said I was obese and I am not selling anything. I am having a conversation with another poster about pills...I simply said what worked for me.

So, wmu-mart - You claim there is leptin in the magic potion you are promoting. What is the source of this leptin?

slw says:
Now I am insulting obese people? What is wrong with you. I simply said I wasn't obese. I also just said what worked for me. Many different things work for many different people. I don't judge any weight loss methods including yours if it works. I am simply saying this is not a place to hawk your wares. AND it was not at all painful to watch my portions, loose the weight I needed to lose and now I make sure I get enough exercise and eat sensibly. It worked for me. Not everyone. I am done arguing with you. You talk in circles.

bothellbuyer says:
I don't believe that leptin is an ingredient in your potion. If you removed the leptin (unless you can prove that the mix contains this protein hormone) from the spiel, I'd probably be ignoring this whole thing. But I've been studying up on leptin for awhile now and it irks me to see leptin 'abused' in this way. You have inferred in previous posts that this potion DOES contain leptin and that adding more leptin to an obese physiology ALWAYS results in massive weight loss. The science does not support this claim. Although leptin deficiency does exist (and added leptin may assist in weight control in these cases), it is not as common as leptin resistance. Adding MORE leptin to a leptin resistant physiology will not result in weight loss (shrug).

bothellbuyer says:
But....you can't even say with certainty that leptin is in this mix. I am guessing that you have made this assumption based on the word used in the product label (shrug). I'm not challenging your weight loss claims. But I can make different choices and lose weight while knowing the ingredients of the substances I put into my body. I don't believe that's poor judgement (another shrug).

<Nobody can tell with absolute certainty what Leptin does, we can assume and argue same time I know from my personal experience, I never met two Professors specializing in same field, and agreeing on their observations completely.>

That may be the case but there is quite a bit on concensus in the field as well. To toss out all that data simply because you choose to ignore science in favor of personal experience baffles me. I prefer to make educated choices.
