This doesn't make sense.. Possible ED trigg? - November 7th 2010, 03:23 PM

I don't think it's triggering, but idk. Just being on the safe side.

I'm taking these diet pills. They worked decently for my boyfriend, but... I'm GAINING weight. I don't get it. Why would that be happening??

I think a side effect of any diet pills is to gain weight...and anyways you should just exercise if you need to lose weight.

Diet pills are created to make you lose weight. Gaining weight is not a side effect.

Diet pills are an ultimate no go. They usually aren't 'genuine' and do you more harm than good. If you want to lose weight, eat healthily and exercise. Don't mess with diet pills.

I don't have time or energy to exercise. Which is why I'm trying diet pills (which worked for my boyfriend).

They might work for one, and not for the other. If you're still up for trying diet pills, find another brand? I'm not sure, I wouldn't advise it. There's more health risks with them.

Hey there,

As you've said, you don't have the time or energy to exercise, so there's your problem. Also, with diet pills you really do need to keep a close eye on your diet, and it's recommended that you see your doctor before going on any weight loss plan.

I hope this helps.
Marie.

If they worked for your boyfriend, ask what he did as he may have also exercised, ate differently, etc... . They often carry a good amount of risks but if one needs to lose weight because they're obese, then the risks of the obesity may outweigh the diet pill risks. If you don't have the energy to exercise, then perhaps you shouldn't be taking the pills because some of them make you lose even more energy. The issue of not having enough energy should be dealt first, then consider the diet pills.

Most pills say on the bottle to accompany with diet and exercise.

*Not saying you do*
, but you can't eat 5 Big Macs a day then pop some pills and expect to lose weight. You still have to run a calorie deficit. Diet pills just help you lose the weight and imo most are just outright dangerous.

I'd say if you don't have time to exercise and worry about healthy foods (which I'll of course recommend anyway), cut back on calories and drink the amount of water your supposed to be drinking a day.


When reality is a prison, your mind can set you free.
