Default Weight loss/fat burner pills?

I know that there is no "magic pill", and that eating healthy and exercise is the way to go when trying to lose weight. But, is there anything out there that is safe to take that will help with weight loss? I've seen the product Alli, but I don't like that it has all of those side effects. Thanks!

Everything has side effects really. It looks like you're doing just fine without them. We have really similar (almost identical) stats so I'd just keep on keeping on if I were you.

When I went to GNC, I asked a specialist for something natural. He recommended Tonalin CLA.

I just looked up the Tonalin CLA and it looks like great stuff! I might have to try it!

Has anyone ever tried an Acai product? I've seen some online that have great reviews for helping lose weight. I also came across a product called SlimQuick Fat Burner, it is powder packets that you put in your water, those had OK reviews. Anyone know about this one as well?

I just checked out Tonalin CLA, and it says it works in conjunction with healthy eating and an exercise program. Is just using the treadmill considered an "exercise program"?

^ there are also "weight loss pills" you can take that are loaded with caffeine... I used Dexatrim for a week when I was desperate and borderline obese, and it had several warnings about the large amounts of caffeine in the product. It kind of worked. I wasn't hungry, but I also starved myself, and the weight jumped back. It never solved my weight problem.

You've done amazing so far without weight loss pills, why do you want to take them?

Diet pills mess up my mood/sanity something fierce, tried few years ago and I never used them since. If you're buying/ trying, please do look into the labels and warnings!

I've read mixed reviews regarding Acai.

Tonalin is similar to Alli. It is more effective when used with exercising and healthier eating, otherwise your stool may be oily.


Out of curiosity, what is your reason for wanting to use a pill?
Many use it as an extra method to burn fat, etc. I was just curious to know what you would gain from it.

That is to say, do what works for you. I don't personally think you need to use them, but I won't be the one to judge if you do.

I lost 60 pounds, but haven't really lost anything since. I'm pretty sure that it is because I got off track eating-wise. But I'm determined to lose 35 more pounds and was just curious if anyone has tried any weight loss pills because I've seen some incredible reviews on websites and I wasn't sure if I should believe them or not and if a pill could really help you lose weight faster. But, from what I've been reading on here and on other websites, it doesn't look like weight loss pills are the answer.

No, they're not the answer. Your best bet is to get back on track to continue losing weight. There is no magic pill that will help you get there without serious complications.

You can't trust reviews on websites because they can be fabricated (which they probably are).

You've had more success than you think. You've maintained your weight which is a huge accomplishment! Congratulations!

Ive tried Alli and didnt experience any side affects. I was also losing weight, but I attributed that to diet/exercise more than anything.

Yup, basically negative reinforcement. If you eat chili cheese fries = be near a toilet in an hour or youll be buying new underwear. I was always afraid of crapping myself, so I didnt overindulge. Though, I must admit it did start staining my toilet.
