i lead a very busy life between work/school/and ,my kids... i'm looking to shed a few pounds... but don't have time to go to the gym.. it there a weight loss pill that will work?

Answer on Is there a weight loss pill that works?

weight loss pills are like penis enlargment pills...... they don't work. Most are a scam that exploit peoples insecurities and brings them down only to be brought back up with the realization that there's a solution to the problem if they buy and take the pill. If you look at the commercials of some of these weight loss pills and it starts showing before and after pics.. if you focus on the bottom at those tiiiiiny letters that are shown for half a second... it clearly states the people in these before and after pics exercised AND dieted while taking the pill.... was it the exercise and diet that made them lose weight? or the pill? It's like those pills or drinks that are supposed to make you test negative for drugs and the like... they say take the pill and then drink 8 full glasses of water and urinate frequently before the test..... was it the pill.. or the 8 tall glasses of water that flushed their system that made them test negative? :p

I understand you have a busy schedule but it's in my opinion that the only true way to lose weight is through aerobic exercises (different from weight lifting/strength training) such as jogging and swimming and a diet of 2,000 calories. Anything helps :p if the kids are old enough to play at the park then next time you're at the park rather than watching the kids play, play with them and run around :p

if i'm not mistaken (which i might be) it takes about 3,000/3,500+ calories to gain one pound and losing one pound is harder than gaining it. In all honesty, it shouldn't be percieved as a weight loss regimen. It's a lifestyle choice. Usually, once a person reaches their target weight they'll relapse and regain it within a few months if it's not considered a lifestyle choice. sorry for the crummy spelling, im really tired.
