I am not losing from them. But they do give me the energy to get up and move some better.

A lady in my church lost a lot of weight on them.

I probably don't take enough of them.

But I understand the formula has been changed again.

Ain't that the truth.

Dave, what do you do for snacking? For instance, I'm in nursing school and I just can't bring my lunch to school and when I'm at the hospital, it's difficult getting something to eat because everything looks overwhelming when looking at it all.

I usually get something like trail mix, but once in a while get a bag of Combos instead of potato chips. What do you do for a quick snack?

I want to add that I have never met anyone who lost weight with diet pills and kept it off longer than two years.

Like someone else said, if you don't change your lifestyle habits, you are just wasting time and money.

Most of the time, changing your lifestyle habits alone will aid you in losing weight without adding the chemicals to your body, which often do more harm than good in the long run.

Don't you find that scary that you are taking something that is giving you energy?

Wonder why they changed the formula.....again?

No I don't find it scary, I find it needed.

But the Lord is healing me and my own natural energy is being revitalized.

Why is it being changed? Called FDA. The ones, in my opinion, that is bought and paid for by the Pharmacutical companies, that are against natural medicine, that get into their pockets.

Did it ever occur to you that they change it because of the problems some are having with the formula.

And most of these products aren't endorsed by the FDA. Look on the label.

Also, most of the time, no scientific studies are done on these products either. I find that problematic as a health professional.

And most of these 'remedies' have nothing to do with pharmaceutical companies. Anyone can come up with and sell a 'formula' and claim whatever they want to claim.

There are lots of foods you can eat that will give you increased energy naturally.

Protein, protein, protein. Actually beef jerky and nuts-especially almonds.

Hospitals are a tough place to work and lose weight.

And you can always supplement that with a good FDA recommended Women's Multivitamin. Works wonders for the energy level-- without any dangerous side effects.
