The Dangerous Dozen

Post placeholder image

As much as I want to loose more weight, I am staying away from diet drugs. I have long since learnt that there are no short cuts to long term weight loss. Back when Phen-Fen was all the rage, I got my doctor to give write me a prescription. Then when all the reports started coming out about people who have liver problems I freaked out thinking that something would happen to me too. Thankfully after many rounds of testing, everything turned out to be all right. But it was a valuable lesson. Sure I felt great after I lost the weight but I soon realized how devastating it would be to loose my life from one of these so call “natural” substances. In any event, Consumer Report has a list of the 12 weight loss drugs folks should stay away from. I know I’m staying away from then. Thinking everyone else should too.
P.S. I’ll write about the date later. I’m still trying to process my feelings about the whole thing.

    You’ll be happy you did it.
