I'm going to second what everyone else said. I've often been where you are. Wanting a quick fix, an easy way, a for sure thing to at least help with the weight loss.
The fact of the matter is pills imo are bad. For more than one reason. Say you found a magic one that works wonders, awesome. But, if you stop using that pill, or if they take it off shelves, then you are back at square one just with less weight. Now, that sounds better than square one more weight right? Not really. You'd still have to learn what is healthy what isn't and start working out. Why not do it all now?
Then you have the health part. Where you see these ads of things people used but they weren't tested enough and now people end up with side effects or die from them. It just isn't worth it.
Losing weight can be hard, especially if you have underlying problems. But, for me and many people on the forums, especially ones not close to goal. I find it really isn't hard. It's all a mindset. I'm losing slower than some, technically on the scale. But, it's not hard. Once you decide to change, your mind changes. And, once you start seeing those changes and more than that feeling them, it pushes you even more.
Pills, also may take weight off, assuming you find one that works. But, even then it does not in any way make you healthy. And who knows if you'd be losing fat or muscle or both? We need muscle. That is why exercise plus a healthy diet is best. That way you lose fat. In my opinion being skinny and flabby is just as bad as fat and flabby- your insides are probably still as healthy or unhealthy and maybe worse off after using diet pills.
I bet if you tried it, you'd be pleasantly surprised all YOU can accomplish without the help of pills.
As far as tips, healthy eating for me. Means less meat, no sodas, cutting back on things like sugars, mayo and anything else with extra goo we don't need to put in our bodies.
Being healthy is not being skinny. It's a lifestyle change and you can easily lose weight while changing yourself inside and out.
Don't think that you can't do anything except diet pills. You can. I'd suggest you check out the Goal forum for motivation. It's doable. It may or may not be faster than pills. but it's much better for your health as well as maintainable. Once, you've got down to where you want to be you know how to keep yourself there. You were the one that did it.
Here's Lipovox on Better business bureau with a grade of F
"In September of 2009 the BBB requested extensive substantiation of this company's advertising practices including, "Burn up to 400% more fat than with just diet and exercise alone", "#1 for fat loss & acne", and "acne aid", "wrinkle treatment", and "weight loss pill". The company provided information for review. At the end of this review, the BBB determined the claims made were not adequately or convincingly substantiated by the references provided; as such, the BBB requested the company modify and/or discontinue the advertising. As of June 9, 2010 the company has not responded to the BBB's requests for modification and/or discontinuation and the advertising has not been modified."
It is also not FDA approved, like most if not all diet pills.
It's not that I am trying to discourage you. I am only trying to discourage from putting mystery things into your body. I can't even find a place that says how much of any given ingredient is in the pill. Apparently, the pill has caffeine in it, which they fail to mention. I assume it's from the green tea extract or whatever. There are many natural things you can eat, not a blend of some super whatevertheycall it. At least you know what's going in your body.
Just be so careful and good luck if you still decide to try the diet pill route.
