they are called star diet

in a diet pill you have an appetite suppressant (try water) a stimulant (try caffeine or guyrana) and something to speed up your metabloism (try exercise especially weight resistance and green tea or green tea extract)

Slimming tablets can give you an anal prolapse.

and they also have laxatives but you don't need those just fruit and veg and fibre generally

fawkeoff Fri 10-Aug-07 11:55:05

At best, buying tablets from unknown sources is a waste of money.

At worst it can be dangerous.

If she wants slimming pills, ask her to see the GP. He can make sure they are (a) safe and (b) legal, and can provide support for her.

fifty odd !

chacha3 Fri 10-Aug-07 12:00:15

chacha3 Fri 10-Aug-07 12:02:05

they are herbal tablets tho thought they were the ok kinda tablet to take

MrsBadger Fri 10-Aug-07 12:03:25

Herbs can be just as potent as pharmaceuticals, and just as dangerous if you don't know what you're taking.

zippitippitoes Fri 10-Aug-07 12:03:48

herbal doesn't mean anything except less regulation

fawkeoff Fri 10-Aug-07 12:04:01

didnt mean that ske shouldnt be dieting at her age.i meant that she is after illegal stuff iyswim

zippitippitoes Fri 10-Aug-07 12:04:46

I was only kidding re 50 odd...

EscapeFrom Fri 10-Aug-07 12:05:18

WanderingTrolley Fri 10-Aug-07 12:05:59
