there is a pill that can assist with weight loss, I have recieved it from my doctor and my dad was given it to him when he went to weight watchers. It's called Adipex it basically stops the part of your brain that tells you your hungry and rev's up your system to want to exercise or just get up and get going. Nothing like those stackers or other scary pills. This pill also makes you extremely thirsty to help you flush out the fat. It works incredible well and if you do it right and learn how to eat the right foods when you are hungry instead of reaching for the sodas and candybars you end up losing weight, learning to eat correctly and start to enjoy drinking water and exercising.

well, for everyone interested, there is something pretty interested i firstly herad about, then got closer to it, and now i recommend it. but one needs to still have that desire to exercise...

it's a system that helps you make more out of your exercises with a proper nutrition and supplements (amino-acids) neccesary to keep our bodies in the overall shape. this is not just about muscels!!! it helps your organs grow and, eventually you grow taller. i am not talking growing 20 inches or more, but a few aditional inches will come if applying this sistem Growth-FlexV.

anyway, growing taller is an unexpected - and how lovely!!! - benefit of this system that is actually based on exercises and interest in keeping our body healthy.

if you have ever wanted to have a few inches more if your height, consider checking this web site Grow taller Growth-FlexV official site – approved height increase system.

i am sure you'll find some interesting detailes you didn't think about before.
WOW....You mean i can grow to 6 foot 6 tall taking and paying your magical system .

I would never take such a pill because there will be serious side effects down the line. Just what America needs is to become even more lazy when it comes to our health. Exercise feels great after your done. You can set personal goals for yourself and acheive them. Its one of the few things that most of us have total control over.

Well not all people are lazy and could use an ''exercise pill'' as for example those who are old aged like people in their 90's and 100's and older in nursing homes and also the disabled as many people are paralysed from accidents and neuro diseases who cannot exercise who possibly could benefit if the science is sound.

That being said the endorphin rush from exercise is a great feeling.

i didn't say you wouldn't need to exercise but there are people in the world due to other health conditions that are unable to get their metabolism going with just exercise alone. I personally tried slim fast, curves, planet fitness, and just good old fashion eating healthier unfortunately my body needed a kick start and that is what some medicines out there are able to provide. You shouldn't judge anything that is able to help someone get healthier and if you are doing this along with your doctor and being monitored it can be very beneficial.

True, but the side effects from such a drug would still be an issue.

If you didn't lose weight doing all those things you claim you were doing, then you were still eating too much. *shrug* Simple proper exercise will increase your metabolism, and unless you are a very rare medical case, you'll lose weight. People who actually have medical conditions that prevent weight loss are a lot more rare than most overweight people claim they are. Problem is, so many people go to the gym and exercise, then come back home and eat things they shouldn't, justifying it by the fact that they exercised.

Absolutely. I'm for anything that allows me to sit on my butt and lose weight at the same time.

Actually, the use of these pills for people who physically less mobile, like in wheelchairs or other ailments, could turn out to be a life saver. If people stuck in bed for extended periods of time could take a pill like this to trick their heart into thinking they were being active....it could be a miracle drug.

This kind of pill sounds like it could be dangerous in the long run. It might alter metabolism in unintended ways--like causing cancer or diabetes or other metabolic diseases.

I'd for sure take it, where can I get it? I don't care what it does to me in 20 years as I'm 58 already!
