But "diet aids" are not the only alternative to severe obesity. Unless people learn to eat healthfully and exercise, the weight loss from diet aids may come... temporarily... but according to just about every study source there is, the weight will come right back when they stop taking the aid. Yes, there are different "plans" to accomplish good nutrition and weight loss... but ALL of the effective ones work on the same principle... eat right and exercise. I stand by my opinion on diet aids and "magic pills." Besides, if anyone is really determined to try them they are not going to be swayed by my opinion on an Internet site.
