What diet pill do you suggest for a 19 year old?

I have always been in the 125 pounds. Played sports for almost 7years, and stopped all together as soon as I began college. I am on the 135 pounds. I want to be where I was. I try to eat healthy, and work out now and then, but it will never get me to where I want to be that quick. I am 5’8 and I know that has to do a lot when it comes to body fat and healthy weight. But Im in the business of modeling and I need to loose a lot of weight to get signed with a very good agency.

I am still going to diet and work out, but I wanted to try out a good diet pill to help keep the weight off as soon as I can.

Any good pills that you can suggest?

Answer #1

Hi I am currently trying to lose 100 lbs so far I have lost 8lbs on my first month no starving required. When it comes to losing weight it’s extremely difficult, but it can be done. You need to start with determination, discipline and really want it. I’m giving you these websites for you to get more info on: myspace.com/herbalrus, please read the blogs and on the herbalnutrition.net/jemmvli you can get more info on your health. Remember there are many people offering you many products but I myself am a living testimony and I am also tired of the overweight issue. I currently don;t have pics of me posted due to the embarrasment of how I look and anybody with a weight issue knows that taking pics is not a fun thing to do. But I will post them as soon as I feel I can dig up the courage to take the after. I do have the before pic. All the products are natural and the have been in business 25+ years My lowest as a teenager was 145lbs big frame and my highest now as an adult 279lbs wow right well I am starting with my goal of 100lbs and take it from there. Hope this helps and hope to hear from you.

Oh my goodness. You sound JUST like me. I am also a 19 year old model who was looking for a quick fix to loose an additional 5 lbs or so. Unfortunately, I know that in our business cocaine and smoking is often turned to. DO NOT EVER go this route. I have two friends who have already ended up in rehab and out of the agency. bad bad news.

My advice to you would also be, stay clear of the pills. Please. I was almost killed this year by weight loss pills that were perscribed to me by a doctor for an under-the-table cash payment. The side effects of these pills are not worth the weight lose. In the end, my body recovered from the horrible things that happened, but not without a fight. I also managed to lose weight, but this was from me personal decision to become a vegan. Best choice I ever made and as a model I could not recommend it more. My skin has never looked clearer, my hair is shiny and since I cut caffenee too, I have tons of energy and the small of amount of cellulite I had on my inner thighs is gone.

But, if you don’t want to be vegan, thats chill. Go to www.modeldietplan.com to see what some of the other girls are doing to stay skinny.

Coincidentally when I was trying to find some good healthy diet pills on the internet, if fould this article at http://body.aol.com/diet/basics/diet-pills-teens:

What Teens Need to Know About Diet Pills

By Liz Neporent

Teen girls are famous for taking drastic measures to copy the waifishly thin figures of starlets like Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olsen. Just how drastic? A new University of Minnesota study found that nearly 20 percent of 19-year-old girls use diet pills to trim pounds.

“Girls start taking diet pills as early as the seventh grade,” warns Dianne Neumark-Sztainer, the study’s lead researcher.

Ironically, habitual pill poppers are three times more likely to be overweight, probably because of other unhealthy weight loss behaviors like binging, vomiting and skipping meals.

According to Neumark-Sztainer, the ease of obtaining weight loss aids helps fuel this disturbing trend. Here are a few diet drugs your kids can readily purchase over-the-counter or on the Internet.

Appetite Suppressants: TrimSpa X32, diet teas, and weight loss patches contain Hoodia Gordonni, an herbal supplement of unproven safety and questionable weight loss benefit. Many of these products don’t actually contain the ingredients listed on the label but when they do, beware. Side effects include chest pain, migraines and interaction with prescription drugs. But the most immediate danger is a thinning wallet: few teens can afford to shell out $15 or more for a week’s supply.

Fat and Carb Blockers: Fat blockers like Chitosol and Fat Absorber TDSL typically contain chitosan, a shellfish extract that can unleash a whole host of nasty reactions including diarrhea, oily discharge and allergic reactions – plus there’s zero scientific proof it works. Carb blockers like EZ-Trim, TrimSpa and CarbSpa list chromium picolinate and/or vanadium as active ingredients; both have demonstrated minor weight loss effects in the lab but the dosage your teen would have to take to see any results puts her at risk for kidney or liver damage.

Metabolism Boosters: Claim to boost body temperature, burn fat, cook through calories. That’s what Hydroxycut, Xenadrine EFX, and other products containing ephedra, bitter orange, green tea extract, caffeine and a long list of other stimulants purport to do. Most are worthless attempts. However, in some studies, ephedra users lost an extra pound or so a month – hardly worth the gamble of developing high blood pressure, having a heart attack or dropping dead before the age of 20. These dire consequences are why the FDA banned high doses of the herbal supplement in 2004 and why your teenage girl shouldn’t use any product that contains it.

Cortisol Managers: Supplements in this category claim to cut the production of the cortisol, a hormone associated with stress-related eating and excess belly fat. High cortisol levels aren’t an issue for most teens and besides, no studies back up the claims made by brands like CortiDiet, CortiSlim, CortiSol, and Relacore that they actually lower cortisol levels or help battle weight gain at any age. Even more of a concern, tests of some products reveal high levels of metal, lead and chromium contamination and large amounts of stimulating agents like caffeine and ephedra not listed on the label.

So I guess there is no such thing as a healthy diet pill then… just do yourself a favor and don’t junk up your body with any diet pills!

Answer #5

Your situation sounds similar to mine. I’ve always been a “skinny girl” and I’ve always weighed under 120 lbs. For the past 3 years, I’ve been struggling with weight, ranging from 135-150 lbs. Right now, I’m about 147 lbs. My problem is that I’m NOT 5’8”… I’m only 5’3”.. ! I feel obese and I hate my thundery thighs and big belly. I can’t seem to lose the weight. I want to take some dieting pills but I’m afraid of the side effects, especially the ones that say “facial hair growth”… I’m already trying to get rid of what I have! This is the worst. I was thinking of hydroxycut. I saw a couple products at Sam’s club.. but I don’t know. :/ I’m in the same boat as you.
