Hydroxycut is just messed up. It used to have ephedrin in it, which is in METH.

I hate commercials for products like these. I doubt any of them work and the risks are just too dangerous.

I understand that this is news, but I don't see the reason for it to be in the Current Events and Debate forum, since hundreds of medical "cures", "treatments", and recommendations are debunked by the FDA every year. It's just a fact of life that companies will make miracle drugs without paying much attention to the possibly lethal side effects.

Hi, I'm John from New York and I lost my liver by using Hydroxycut. Now I'm ** pounds lighter and am on a transplant list! Thanks Hydroxycut!


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

Oh crap, that would suck. SUE SOMEONE!
(although, from personal experience, hospital food SUCKS and would probably only lessen your appetite )


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.


Music is life. Start living.

Really, I think it's stupid for any of these items to be on the shelf at a store. If you really medically need to lose weight that easily, talk to a doctor, get the whole physical and all that to make sure it's as safe as you can be, and go from there. Otherwise, lose weight the only true healthy way.
