Why do we need to make it unnecessary complicated and put drugs into our systems instead of just eating less and excercising so long untill all the fat cells have degenerated?

I have learned that, keeping constant motion to your body (even when you are sitting) can greatly help to keep your weight in check. So those people who has bad habit of shaking their leg when they are sitting down, please keep on doing it.

Follow-up question: If it's known that diet pills have no scientific backing and you don't lose weight, how are they not illegal?

My friends in hospital yers before Use to gave me few sashets of some mix of drug, taking half sashet took hunger and stomach pain for several days. Head eight or shaky hands stays. Prise to play. There is loads of medicine not available to us mortals. By the way common cold can be treated by one or two pills. Pilots gets that. If cow gets that, gives just way more milk. Mhhh medicine.

Also, green tea is a diuretic. So if you drink a ton of green tea (like me), your body will benefit, but uh... yep. Be prepared to visit the bathroom more.

It would have been much better if I discovered this “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it) a couple of years back. I lose 12 lbs in three weeks so far. Needless to say I work out a few times a week, and eat healthy. The actual result shown to me is incredible. Definitely, this plan is strongly suggested and I do wish this would give good results to you too as it did to me. .

The bacon will help with weight loss; the bread in the sandwich won't. And more running solves nothing.

Amphetamines. There done, legal in many places and still used today in the UK or AUS.

Ephedra worked. I know, I used it and it worked very well. Since it worked so well and was a plant so it could not be patented so anyone could make it and sell it, cheap, they whipped up a frenzy with misinformation and got it banned. They blamed it for the death of about 125 people over a 5 year run, almost all overdoses...Aspirin kills many many more... Why was it banned? The drug companies had a "better" new drug they wanted to sell for HUGE profits and this stuff was working, so they lined the right pockets and BANG, it was banned. What was their "better" new drug? Phen Phen.

I have currently applied this specific “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it) for a few weeks already and the final results are remarkable. I have the vitality I want without suppressing my desire for foods without having making me really feel jittery. I did nothing special on my very own diet program and I still manage to lose my unwanted weight to 7 pounds. .

The fact that no one blinks twice at hank making all these jokes about wanting weight loss pills that work despite the fact that he is likely barely even healthy weight. I’m not mad at hank, or those who don’t notice, I myself only finally noticed due to my eating disorder struggles. But think about what that says about societal norms and their impact on the way we think and process everything. Now that’s a sci show video I’d watch!
