Question Ephedra's the "bad drug" today, what tommorrow?

Everyone's getting results, I want them too, but it just seems a strange circle of today this, tommorrow that & is it worth it, and how long do you have to take any diet pill, and how much faster does it work than exercise & diet alone, say if I want to lose like 30lbs?

Well, diet pills definitely are not the answer but they are here to stay, so finding a healthy balance is key. I would never advise anyone to take anything if they did not already have their head screwed on straight about how to lose weight properly. If someone does not know how to eat and exercise properly, pills are not going to do a thing... okay maybe initially, but the weight WILL come back and probably moreso...Some pills help speed metabolism which helps kick start weight loss and aid in appetite suppressment... but you cannot take pills forever and eventually you have to rely on yourself... I think that is where many people fall short in the weight loss game. Typically, if you are eating healthy and exercising, you should be able to lose 1.5-2 lbs per week, in a healthy way... now, that is an average... some weeks you may have more, some less... the key is consistency and going about things in a healthy way... the pills should always be secondary to a healthy lifestyle. Good luck
