Dear Jay
There are diet pills that will suppress the appetite thus reducing your energy intake and leading to weight loss, but I am personally opposed to the use of such pills and potions. Using appetite-suppressing slimming pills or liquids that contain ephedrine, pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine can be very harmful. These components can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions, etc). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. Rather stick to your diet and start doing 30 or more minutes of aerobic exercise a day to promote weight loss. Aerobic exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life), is the best method of stimulating your metabolism without doing damage to your body.
Be careful of such pills

Jay. I also used to take usn and eas' fatburners, and if it is fatburners, I believe that it only kicks in when you are doing cardio exercise. I helps the body burn more fat during exercise. But if you are going to use them, but not exersice, you are going to do much harm to your kidneys. It also usually states on the bottle, that you need to drink a lot of water, when taking these pills, and when do drink the most water?? When you exersice. But the ones that I used, really made me feel the extend that the little bit of food I was allowing myself to eat, I couldn't eat. Now I am using Herbalife, drinking a lot of water, exersicing regularly, eating healthier and the weightloss came in abundance.

Good luck
