Diet Pills-Phenterfein

Has anyone tried or know of anyone who has tried weight loss pills? I have just lost 90 lbs and have hit such a brick wall. I have not been losing for a month now- even with dieting and 8 workouts/week. I read some reviews about Phenterfein- thoughts anyone?

this is a funny question. i googled the drug mentioned and came up with a lot of sites that are asking the same question. i think this is a marketing thing. if it isn't, my opinion is the same with regard to all of these so-called "miracle" drugs: complete BS. i would rather be fat than take drugs.

I agree. The link to your ebay site doesn't help either. I can't tell if this is a legitimate question.

to the OP - maybe you need to review what you're doing and not losing weight now. Working out 8 x a week could mean you're not eating enough. It could be that your workouts are not burning as many calories as you think. Your post really doesn't give the whole picture.

And by the way - losing 90 pounds is awesome! You must have been doing something right. Maybe you just need to make a few changes that will start the losses again.

Regardless, I don't think the answer is to take a diet pill. If there were one that actually worked as good as they claim it did without any damaging side effects the whole world would KNOW about it and there wouldn't be so many people trying to lose weight!

You'd be much better off researching ways to break your plateau... go find a book, or search online, or even get tips from someone in one of your groups or teams here on PT.

It is a real question. I wanted some insite to diet pills before trying them. thats all. There is the original link that linked me to ebay. It reviews all the different pills.

before you put some drug that you aren't familiar with into your (new) body, consult an actual doctor. just because some company is touting their drug to be the best ever is not a reason to resort to drastic measures. maybe your body just needs a break. what is up with people NOT wanting to consult a physician or nutritionist?

I tried that pill. I lost about 10 pounds really quick. During that time, I was highly emotional and gradually become more and more anxious/reactive to things. Long story short the pill completely messed up my adrenal glands. I have never been the same since and have spent thousands of dollars going to doctors/naturapaths/acupuncturists etc. over the last few years trying to repair the damage. On top of that the weight came right back on the minute I stopped taking the pill..and you can't take those pills forever (lord knows what the effects of doing so would be). Anyway, that's my experience with them. I wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy, but obviously you need to make your own and best choices for you.
