Hello everyone? I am on that last 5-10lbs that I want gone. I know if i didn’t eat pure sugar and crap come 8pm i probably could. But, does anyone take any diet pills that they know worked for them? Just want a little help getting over this plateau.. someone told me ALLI worked well for them but wanted more opinions. thanks and have a good day!

Diet pills can have horrible side effects, so I'd say try to do this as natural as possible. I've heard that Alli is only if you have a lot of weight to lose, not those last 5-10 lbs. So if you are going to do a pill make sure it's to get you over that hump, not for losing 100 lbs.

I did a program through GNC with pills and you were supposed to supplement with eating well and exercise (it's been a while back and I can't remember the name). They worked to lose a lot (50 lbs), but I realized they were making me feel like crap. Now, I may be up and constantly seem to be trying to lose that last 10 lbs., but I feel healthier than when I was on the pills. And I know I need to change my habits and the pills won't help me in the long run.

If you aren't eating well now, then even if you take the pills and lose, once you stop them you'll gain it back. So, focus on what you can do to get your eating habits changed, even if you decide to take the pills, because that will help you the most in the long run.

Good luck!!

You haven't really hit a plateau if you are as you say eating crap after 8pm. If you are sticking to your diet and then see no weight come off after a few weeks of eating well, then you have hit a real plateau. I suspect if you get past the over eating in the evening you will start losing again. Are you not getting enough calories during the day? What if you added more high fibre veggies with your evening meal?? would you feel fuller? Diet pills are not the answer, they can cause more damage than do good and you will still not have stopped your problem of over eating in the evenings once you are off them. What if you kept yourself busy..

You better google for some of the problems with that Alli stuff. I doubt you want to risk the public humiliation that some people experience using it.

It is probably best to stick with what you were doing to lose weight in the first place and just make small controlled tweaks. If you are exercising a lot, try exercising a little less. If you are eating too little, try eating a little bit more. Maybe look at the foods you are eating regularly and substitute other healthy foods for a bit. Drink enough water to stay hydrated.

If you are losing control in the evening it's probably because you're not eating enough supper. Eat a large, balanced meal in the evening to keep you from getting hungry until bedtime.

Diet pills are at best a temporary fix and at worst a ripoff. When you stop the pills the weight comes right back on.
