Using diet pills to lose weight

Do you want a fast way to lose weight? And are you considering using diet pills? Well, here’s what it’s like to use diet pills as part of your weight loss plan.

What you’re thinking

  • You want a fast way to lose weight, you’ve heard about diet pills and you’re thinking that it would be so much easier to use a diet pill instead of going on a diet.
  • Or maybe, you’re just thinking it would speed up your weight loss if you could pop a diet pill or 3 as well as going on that diet?

Firstly let me explain why I know what you’re thinking:

It’s because I’ve been there, I’ve done it and I can tell you the truth about using diet pills and if they work or not, or at least what they did for me. Also I’ll reveal a really excellent alternative to diet pills that produces equivalent results, in my opinion at least…

Being an expert dieter, (and an expert fatty!) I think the only reason I’m not seriously overweight, is because about once a year, I used to embark on a 3 month diet, which meant my weight never exploded above a certain level. And I’ve been dieting on and off for 25 years!

Now I know what works for me, because now, at last, finally I’m happy with my weight … it stays within 7lbs of my happy weight. And if I put weight on (and I do), I know how to get rid of it fast without diet pills. Read on and I’ll tell you how…

What it’s like using Diet Pills

Before I knew about diet pills, I tried laxatives. But I don’t think they really worked. Because I had to take so many as my body got used to them, that I just felt really ill all the time. Then 3 years later I had blood in my stools and after investigations, was found to have (nasty large) polyps up there!! In the end, they had to be removed surgically and although they were benign, they could have developed into the big C! Afterwards, I thought about the cause and I swear the laxatives were responsible. Sometimes you just know. Therefore, my advice to anyone reading this is don’t ever touch them!

My first entree into diet pills was a herbal pill which was said to increase metabolism. When I first started taking them I felt fine! And I had been taking them for a week or two when I went out to a nightclub with friends (on an empty stomach – bar a herbal diet pill!)

My Alternative to Diet Pills

Check out the alternative I use to get the fast weight loss effects of a diet pill without the side effects.

On arrival at the club, the bouncer said he thought I was “on” something!… stupid man, I’ve never taken drugs in my life! – I remember thinking.

Once at the bar, I had one alcoholic drink, then suddenly developed a raging thirst and while my partner was waiting at the bar to be served, everything went fuzzy, it felt like I had a swarm of bees in my head. Then I fainted. So the night was ruined and that bouncer had been right after all – that’s when I stopped taking the diet pills.

It took me a while to get over that experience, but then I heard about Xenical. Now Xenical is a prescription diet pill which effectively prevents a percentage of the fat in your diet from being absorbed. And it sounded perfect for me. So, I got hold of some and honestly, it did work really well. The only thing that I really didn’t like was (and I’m sorry to be graphic) my stools were often close to the consistency of vegetable oil and orange! With the odd leak thrown in for good measure! yuk! I was using diet pills fo a while, fairly happily, before finally finding alternatives without the side effects of diet pills that work best for me.
