    Slimming aids?!

    Hi All

    Just wondered if anyone knows of any good/safe/not too pricey slimming tablets? I've tried Adios but they didnt really work for me.

    Thanks!

    If these things worked we'd all be taking them and not dieting. Dont waste your money on them

    Just looked at the side effects.Think anyone thats thinking of giving these ago should look also.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    "I don’t think there’s any excuse for women not to stay in shape. We just need to stop gorging, put on our trainers, and use some self-control. No one else is going to do it for us." Linda Barker

    “Eating crappy food isn't a reward -- it's a punishment.” ― Drew Carey

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.
    Loving life,Loving my body.

    Oh ok well obviously i am dieting and working out but i thought safe slimming aids were supposed to help you along if taken alongside diet and activity? I'm sure i've seen countless adverts stating that? Just forgot what products they were advertising!!

    You may be thinking of Alli? That's a lower dosage of the prescription drug Orlistat, which is the only weight loss drug licensed for use by the NHS, and you can buy Alli over the counter.

    Alli and Orlistat are the same thing, except Alli is a lower dose version that you don't need a prescription for. xx

    You could ask your GP to prescribe them? Depends how much you need to lose - I had 10 stone, so my GP was happy to give them to me. xx

    I have been offered them (I have 3 stone to lose) but I said no. I thought 3 stone would be a manageable amount to lose, I would still like to do it without them but alli may be a good option if I find myself hitting a wall x

    A bit pricey though, if you can get them for the cost of a prescription, lol. xx
