I was just wondering if anyone else here takes any weight loss vitamins I am takin One A Day Weight Loss Vitamins

Make sure to take them with food , cause they will make u naseaus (or however u spell it)!

Any other Vitamins on the market?

Do they help at all or are they like any other Vitamins?

I think maybe they just supply you with the right essentials you need while dieting cause most of the times when your dieting your leaving out a couple things you need to intake.

I tried the One a day ones and personally for me I didn't think they helped much but every body is different!

I used to take Metabolife and I lost about 10 pounds. I am actually thinking about taking them again but taking Trimspa((baby)). Has anybody used Trimspa?

Yep I used that one too and didn't think it helped me! Maybe I'm just weird and think nothing works LOL I just got CortiSlim but it makes my mouth so nasty and dry I don't know if I'll be able to take it on a regular basis!

I have tried the vitamin ones with no help at all. The only program i found to work for me was a place called Transformmations here in Florida. Lost over 70 lbs in 9 months .

I've tried a lot of the vitamins and diet pills, they didn't work for me either. I could feel my heart racing and it scared the heck out of me so I just don't even try taking anything. Plus I am afraid I would get hooked on them and would not be able to stop. See that happen with a couple of people I know. A co-worker had to go to the hospital because she thought she was having a heartattack. (she was taking diet pills and NOT eating) she is a whole nother story. Just becareful with what you take.

I take the One A Day Weight Smart vitamins. I can't really say that they have helped with the weight loss. I have lost over 100 pounds through healthier eating and exercise; but I keep taking the vitamins because I need to take a daily vitamin anyway.

the vitamins aren't bad like diet pills. They are actually vitamins and don't male you feel any different (they are ONE A DAY brand) THey probably jsut give you the vitamins yuo may not get while dieting

Well Since They Banned Ehpedra In Florida (so Mad About That-those Pills Were Awsome!) Iv Been Taking Ephedrine Which Is A Asthma Relief Pill That Is Almost As Good As Ephedra But Doesnt Supress Ur Apetite Quite As Well. Im Pretty Sure There Going To Ban That Soon As Well. I Dont Really Take Them For The Dieting Effect,i Just Really Like The Energy They Give U Which Makes My Workouts Longer And Better.

Are ya'll talking about Vitamins? or are you referring to actual diet pills? Vitamins are not the same as diet pills. I take Centrum Carb Assist Vitamins "cause I've been doing the Atkins Diet since June, but it doesn't curb the appetite. I've lost 18 lbs by keeping my carbs very low....I don't count my calories nor fat grams. I am 60 and feel better on the Atkins Plan than I have ever felt. Atkins shall be my lifetime eating plan.

I don't take diet vitamins...but I swear I was addicted to ephedra. I have to ammit, I love that stuff!!! It gave me soo much energy and caffeine pills don't work the same. But ephedra was banned everywhere! It is really bad for your heart. I was taking Stacker 2s for 3 years (and when I didn't get them...Metablife, Exenadrine, and whatever else had ephedra). I was taking 4 Stacker 2's when I woke up in the morning. Not eating with them...nothing. I would roll out of bed and take them. The ephedra stuff is really bad for you. I didn't think so and to be honest...I still don't. But my heart would beat really fast, I would shake, I couldn't catch my breath sometimes, and if I didn't take them....I had no energy. Dave would get mad at me for taking them b/c I wouldn't eat with them and I was getting really bad with the breathing thing. Little did he know...I had been taking them for a LONG time. But honestly...besides the energy, they didn't work. I never lost any weight...even when I wouldn't eat. I lost more weight since I stopped taking diet pills then I ever did with them. Hugs:p

I take the One a Day weight Loss also. I've been trying to steer clear of the diet pills and just eat healthier and exercise more. I've lost almost 25 pounds. Most is stress related though...I can't imagine why!!! :rolleyes: ;)

I use to take Stacker 3's....they are CRAZY. They would have me soooo speeded up. I swear it felt like "other" drugs. I heard they really are not good for you though so I stopped.

Okay ladies I am the diet pill/vitamin specialist! :) I used to work of 24 hour fitness! I took exenadrine for years! I lost tons of weight and had tons of energy! It was pulled from the market so suddenly I found my tiny body suddenly 15lbs heavier. I tried trimspa,and all the rest on the market. All I can say is there is no magic pill out there! I take the one a days as well. I think the 1 a days are ment to give you the vitamins you need and a little extra energy so you can get into the gym or add some physical activity into your life! The only way to truly lose weight and BE HEALTHY is to change your eating habits and working out at least 3 times a week! I would suggest the South Beach Diet to anyone it is fabulous and simular to the atkins but WAY more healthier! Diet Pills and anything that promises a quick fix is not only dangerous but it throws your metabolism way off so eventually you will either stop taking them or "platoo" and need to take highier doses to maintain your weight. If not you will easily gain twice what you lost! I say whether you are just wanting to lose a few pounds or you have a lot to lose do it the right way! Eating more often w/ smaller meals boosts your metabolism. Cut carbs like bread and pasta to a minimum (they brake down to sugar and sugar feeds your fats cells) and get out and excercise! Excercise not only helps to burn fat and calories but it also releases endorphins into your system which make you happy! I suggest excercise even if you don't have weight to lose because it prevents depression and stablizes your moods! I would be more then happy to help anyone that has any questions about what to eat or what to stay away from! feel free to pm me or you can post and questions! :)
