Diet pills can be incredibly dangerous, especially over the counter ones. If after trying everything else, talk with a doctor who can determine why nothing worked BEFORE taking diet pills .. there could be a medical problem like thyroid disfunction or something else going on. I understand how diffcult and frustrating it can be to lose weight, I'm still battling baby weight!

I agree with Madelynnsmama - diet pills are dangerous. I had a very bad experience some years ago and wouldn't recommend them. Go on the internet and learn about the "glycemic index" - this will really help you lose weight.

Another opinion are diet pills-bad stuff. There are many ways to lose weight safely, but diet pills will NOT help you maintain a weight loss. There are serious side effects and risks, including DEATH. Do some research and find a safe program of healhty eating and exercise which will not only help you lose weight, but maintain weight loss. Yo-yo weight loss is dangerous, to lose weight and keep it off one needs to make life-long changes in terms of eating and exercise, and there are lots of safe and effective ways to do this, but stay AWAY from diet pills.

Good points everyone. We went ahead and removed the diet pills portions of the tip.

Although you have already said that you removed the diet pills section I would like to add in my two cents worth.

I am diabetic. About a year or so ago, miracle of miracles, the docs finally got the meds right so that my blood sugars were where they needed to be. The problem was that my body wasn't use to my blood sugar levels being that low. They weren't unhealthy low, but lower than I was used to. When the levels would drop I would grab for anything to eat. I was just that hungry.

I talked with one of my doctors and she put me on a prescription diet pill for like three months. I think I only took it for two though. (Sorry, I don't remember the name.) I just needed something to help my body get use to being where it needed to be.

Not all diet pills are bad, but like your other readers have said, that over the counter stuff can be scary.

That's my two cents worth. :>)
