Taken diet pills before? Howd that work out for ya?

Ive been on a diet the past six weeks and lost 15 lbs already. This is just by getting rid of alot of junk food, eating alot less, and exercising for about 2 hrs 5 days a week.

I decided to try how this would be along with diet pills and bought Hydroxycut. I just took my first one but see that I have to take one, 3 times a day, than in three days move to two 3 times a day! Thats alot of shit.

Ive heard diet pills can be a problem and when my sister heard this told me I was going to fuck up my kidneys.

So whats peoples opinions on these pills? After losing 15lbs on my own they seem useless but I always like pushing it to the limit.

There are always risks in taking diet pills.

I thought "diet pills" referred to amphetamines.

So we're talking over the counter diet pills?

I was going to say "That sucks," but I guess it wouldn't.

You don't need that shit, Revenous. Keep doing what you're doing in terms of cutting out the junk food and exercising. As long as you have some common sense about what you eat, you'll do fine.

Well I already bought and opened the bottle so I gotta take em now. At least they wont last long, about 2 weeks with the way I gotta take em.

Unfortunately I already suffer from Insomnia and a bit of anxiety (though a normal amount us nonstop worriers pessemists have; I dont have anxiety attacks or that crap)

I doubt I'd ever try diet pills. My mother totally screwed up her metabolism with those years back. Of course she was doing stuff like yellow jackets, but even the over the counter stuff worries me.
