Do Diet Pills Work?

If I had a super power it would be that I could eat as much as I want and not get fat. Or maybe it would be that I would have abs like steel but I didn’t need to work out? Or maybe it would be that at a twitch of my nose I could tidy my house and file or all my paperwork? I dream of being slimmer, fit, healthy, tidy and in control of the hamster wheel of chaos that currently is my life.

My lack of discipline and love of crisps threatens my ever-increasing waistline. I do manage to lose a few pounds and then I gain them right back with a boozy night nurtured the next day with warm, milky coffee and luscious, creamy carrot cake. I have never actually considered using diet pills before but I am wondering if something that helps curb my appetite or limits my carb intake, reduces my fat absorption could be the solution. Garcinia Cambogia is a popular ingredient in many diet pills at the moment with many sellers making wild claims. I read a critical review of one such product on

According to the NHS website diet pills are not the sole solution. There isn’t a magic pill that can be taken every day that will dramatically reduce your waistline and lessen the load on the scales and yet still continue to fill your face with cake and slouch on the couch. All of the research indicates that diet pills can accelerate weight loss if taken as part of a balanced diet with a regular exercise regime. I think it needs further examination because these pills don’t come without side effects. But to be honest what change doesn’t come without side effects. There are side effects to eating too much fried food, cakes and drinking alcohol too. Perhaps cake should come with a government health warning ‘a minute on the lips and a lifetime on the hips’ or even ‘little pickers leads to bigger knickers’.

So all I need to do really is eat more healthily, exercise more, manage my business well, write to all my copy deadlines, raise well-behaved, thoughtful children and stay on top of the housework. I wonder if there is a pill that will help me manage all that. It feels like a diet pill are not enough what I really is need ‘a get your life in order’ pill. I wonder where you buy those?
