    Healthy eating is the key for me.

    Why at weight loss "pills" always on late night TV.

    I truly believe that weight loss is a life style change. Thanks for the article
  • Whoa. A seriously rude comment in this thread. Not appreciated.

    My favorite lines from Marie Osmond's NutriSystem commerical:

    "No fads or gimmicks" -- NutriSystem qualifies as BOTH!

    "My belly is flatter now than when I was in my 20s" -- Of course it is...you stopped breeding like a rabbit!!!
  • I thank you very much for the article. I think that the information contained in this article is great. Thanks again.
  • I am shocked at the number of comments here about the ads... doesn't everyone use AdBlocker? I could not surf without it ha ha...
  • Isn't this interesting? But isn't one of the challenges here on SP (the BMI Smart Challenge) sponsored by I-Remove...a pill (or something) that purports to block some portion of the carbs we eat? How can SP give this advice, but carry advertising/sponsorship from a company like this? I know that the ads pay the bill, but how about some integrity?
  • I do NOT believe in 'fad' diets. Diets such as Slim Fast, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig and Plexus ( the worst one out there) have been proven to be FAKES and they do NOT work. I tried Slim Fast and when I saw that I was NOT losing weight I stopped using it. I realized that it was a fake, fad diet just like all the rest of them. I wasted money on that crap and I will not be wasting my money on another crappy diet.

    I stick to portion controlling, eliminating sugar and pop, eating more fruits and vegetables, working out 30 minutes a day and drinking plenty of water.

    Those fake 'fad' diets know where to stick it.
  • Actuallya "little pill to curb cravings and suppress appetite" does exist. It's called Contrave. Only available from your doctor.
  • I love the comment,"Suck it up and some day you won't have to suck it in." That way it becomes more appreciated.
  • EBRAINK
    Excellent advice! Perhaps people need to exercise their skeptical and critical thinking, too?
  • its all determimation and willpower. After im done with my goal im going to as well sell stupid worthless products that don't work either. Everybody should do it. ... Its the American way!
  • I love how the bottle in this ad so closely resembles the bottle in the article about Alli
