Hi Bombi, and welcome!
I didn't participate in your survey as none of the anwers really represent my feelings.
In my personal opinion, if you BELIEVE diet pills will work, then they will, especially if you follow the diet and exercise plan that usually accompanies them.
If you've got the money, and they are safe (remember PhenFen
) then go for it.
Of course, I also believe that simply controlling your calorie intake, engaging in some modest daily exercise and drinking lots of water will be just as effective w/o the cost of pills.
Sorry if this isn't the answer you were looking for.
