Why don't you try owning your problem and just eat properly and exercise? Diet pills are not, and never have been, the solution to the problem. In fact, they are part of the problem.

It's about time to face reality.

if you really feel you need diet pills, i think you can see what the doctors like local gps can prescribe you...

Or you can try health stores like nature's farm or gnc to see what health supplements you can get to help manage your weight...

I have a friend who takes weight management supplements from health stores and she has a good figure...but i i have not idea if it works cos i have not tried them myself ...some other friends told me they use herbs and herbal teas & it works for them.

In traditional indonesian medicine, tumeric and other herbs are good for weight managements, because they help balance the male/female hormones and is good for acne too. Indonesian traditional medicine called jamu is good, but like all supplements best for you to have some expert advice if possible b4 taking. Sorry I am no expert. But I do know imbalanced hormones can lead to weight problems...so you might want to try natural herbs for a change...

Many of asian tradictional medicines in singapore from Chinese, Indian, Malay/Indonesian and Thai...so you have many options.

But even with traditional asian medicines , the professional practioner will still tell you diet control and some exercise.

I hope you will find a soultion that works for you. Do take care and best of health to you :)
Salam(peace be with you)

I guess I'll have to rephrase from a previous post here...

...I have a magic pill. All you have to do is run to my house everyday to get a pill for me and then run back home. You need to take the pill for a month and it will make you lose weight. It works wonders!

It's actually a multi-purpose pill as it also doubles as a birth control pill. Once you run home with it, all you have to do it place it between your knees and hold it there with your knees. Works fine, so I've been told, and it has no side effects. :wink:

Liamini......

you still need one more post before your PM function will work. It's pretty obvious by your useless posts, that that is what you are trying to do.

Even the most effective diet pills are only meant to be taken for a short period of time, usually six months or less

Dear Snowysummr,
do visit the weight loss thread. A group of us has been engaged in his discourse over the last few days, so mnay interesting tips! From so many veiwpoints. A healthy diet and exercise is still the mainstay, if not , you should visit a personal trainer, a dr and a nutritionist. :D
Please do not wastte your precious $$$$$ on slimming centres, there are modest results but it ain't sustainable, and you're better off spending it on a Birkin Bag.
