No. As I know from years of weight loss, there is no quick fix. I also want healthy pregnancy...who is to say what they do to your body and how they might change my body chemically.

My friend was taking diet pills and ended up in the hospital with a messed-up heart beat.

Even if you don't get horribly sick from them they don't help you at all. How do you learn to incorporate exercise and healthy eating patterns in your life if you depend on pills for weight loss? As soon as you stop you'll gain the weight back because the necessary changes weren't made.

It's a dangerous waste of your money.

they are worthless! they do more harm than good! I was addicted to them years ago when I was struggling hard core with an eating disorder. I dont blame them for my eating disorder by any means but they sure as hell didn't help.

I bought a bottle of Xenadrine and I have taken a few of them off and on but finally threw them away because I was too scared to take them on a regular basis. I know that they can cause irregular heartbeat among other things and I don't need any added pressures such as those.

I tried Zantrax for a few days but it made my heart race and for the first two days using it I couldn't sleep for anything. They are so not worth the risks, etc. Nothing works better than exercise and eatiing right.

In a recent addition of a publication of "The Pharmacists Letter", they had the contents of various diet pills analyzed. In many cases, the label on the bottle that indicated what was in the product, was way off what was actually in the product. For example, there was one pill that contained unsafe amounts of chromium.
Most pills contained huge amounts of caffeine. For example, I think it was Zantrax 3 that contained as much caffeine as 18 cups of coffee.
Everyone else is right.......diet pills aren't the solution. They are unsafe and if nothing else they provide only a bandaid masking the need for healthy changes for weight loss.

I was on diet pills years ago with supervision of my doctor. The first week I couldn't sleep and my heart raced. He told me this was normal. I lost 40 pounds in 6 months a lots of inches but like jenny craig and other diets as soon as you go off them you gain all your weight back and then some. Stay away from any big fix, proper exercise and a healthy diet is the best solution.

Good luck you can do it.
