I've come to the conclusion that despite exercise and diet moderation, I need diet pills to jump start my metabolism. I can't really afford (nor do I think my dr. would write a prescription) diet pills. Anybody have any recommendations? I've tried some green tea diet pills that gave me ghastly heartburn and I'm hesitant to try to the pill (ally?) that makes you shit yourself. Thanks for the info!
I don't think there is anything sold OTC that does anything except transfer your money to them. Except alli. I take alli, and it works but it does have those side effects.
Celery and Carrots
Diet and exercise.
Lipozine! Your husband will say LOOKATCHU!!
Stop eating all gluten and sugar. Stevia is your friend and you can use it as much as you want without keeping you fat.
You will lose weight. Seriously.
OP, have you ever sweated on purpose?
OP here, yes I do work out and I do diet (though I have to drink on weekends - it's the only thing that keeps me going!) but it's one step forward and two steps back as far as weight loss goes, so I thought it's time for some time of OTC diet drug. Diet drugs aren't cheap - at least the kind they have at Whole Foods - so I was looking for some recommendations before buying something that made me sick and/or completely crazy!
Some people are claiming to have great results with raspberry ketones.
Unfortunately, I've not seen any studies yet, nor do I know what is an effective dosage.
Vicks Vapo-Rub on your tongue. Guaranteed to totally kill any craving for food.
What are in the green tea pills you mention? If you go that route you should get just green tea extract, with nothing else in them. Green tea has real health benefits, but do not expect big weight loss results.
Green tea is more a gentle overall cleanser and anti-oxidant, not intended to give you any big "boost" or quickly melt away pounds.
You could also try green coffee bean extract capsules. This seems to be the big weight loss craze, but if you choose those get the kind that contains coffee arabica; it will say this on the back of the bottle if it is in there.
And as the green tea extract, if you get the green coffee bean make sure to get a quality brand and only that ingredient. Not all the fillers and hype of other ingredients.
Good luck, OP. If you are insistent on having alcohol, even if only on weekends, you will likely continue gaining weight.
Have you been checked for B12 deficiency? If you are deficient you can get injections that make you feel like your whole body has been kickstarted. It only works if you are deficient though - wont make any difference if your levels are OK.
Exercize enough for your body type and metabolism. Eat small exrta healthy meals. Drink tons of water. That's all there is to it.
Stevia tastes like saccharin + cyclamates. Like cilantro, some people like it and some people hate it.
Diet and exercise, you fat whore.
I've tried it all. HCG is the latest thing but it's not over the counter and it's really hard to follow without fucking up. You can also try ECA stack (Ephedrine, Caffeine, and Aspirin) but I've grown immune to it and it's really hard to find ephedrine. Guess I'm of no help, OP.
Learn to live with hunger.
Milk of Magnesia
Melba Toast and syrup of ipecac.
I've lost ten pounds since Xmas, on the "Vegetable Soup Diet".
That is, I make a big pot of good vegetable soup, and I eat it when I'm not going out.
We don't take drugs. We're organic girls. Our fingers are enough.
And just balance your meals. I mean, it's Thursday. We JUST ate on Tuesday. We have willpower to wait until tomorrow for our next meal of a lettuce leaf and a Tic Tac.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
