Your Questions About Weight Loss Pills For Teens

by Maricela on April 14, 2013

Lizzie asks…

What kind of vitamins do I need in order to be more energetic?

I’m 15 years old. I’m ALWAYS tired or worn out. Are there any vitamins or pills I can take so I’ll have more energy throughout the day?

BTW: I get 7-9 hours of sleep every night. So I don’t think it’s my sleeping habits.

Maricela answers:

I’m 15 too, but I don’t really like taking any pills or vitamins. BUT… One a Day Teen really boosts your energy! And the actual vitamin is pink 🙂 Also, try this new drink called Neuro. There’s types like Bliss(for memory), Trim(for weight loss) and Sonic(for energy!) And they taste reallyy good too! Hope this helps 🙂

Sandra asks…

I am a teen mother, i am desperate in losing weight for the summer?

Plz help I’m willing to spend a few dollars on some dietary pills but dnt no a good dietary pill any suggestions?

Maricela answers:

Pills don’t work, fad diets don’t work. This does:

What It Takes to Lose a Pound
Diet and Weight Loss Tutorial
Unit of Weight Approximate Calories Approximate Kilojoules
Pound 3,500 14,644
Kilogram 7,716 32,284

A pound of body fat equates to approximately 3500 calories. So if you have a calorie deficit of 500 calories (meaning that you burn 500 calories more than you eat each day) you would lose approximately one pound per week:

500 x 7 = 3,500

It’s easy to see that a calorie deficit of 1000 calories would mean that you’d lose approximately two pounds per week. And that’s a good number to remember, because two pounds a week is commonly accepted as the maximum rate of weight loss that is healthy. Losing weight too quickly has other disadvantages, too, and we’ll be discussing this in the next topic. See the whole article at the link below.

Robert asks…

Do you know anything about Lipo 6 weight loss pills?

I have been thinking about taking Lipo 6 weight loss supplements. Do you know of any side effects?

Maricela answers:

Please do not try diet pills because they are not the long term answer and many can cause negative health effects. Consider a healthy lifestyle change.

The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

*1) Burn more calories then you’re consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/library/weight/calsburned.htm

Get an online, desktop, or cell phone diet and fitness calculator. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:
Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.htm
Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/weight/bmi.html

It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

*2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

*4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

*5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at http://realage.com
Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier.

Sharon asks…

Is it safe for teens to take diet pills?

I’ve been dieting and working out like crazy for about a year now and theres no changes at all ! I dont know what to do anymore. I was thinking of doing some research and asking my doctor about a safe diet pill. I would’nt abuse the use of them and I’ll keep working out and dieting but does anyone know of a diet pill that works ?

Maricela answers:

Whenever you are trying to lose weight, you should concentrate on these three things which all work together in providing a healthier and quicker weight loss goal for yourself. I have found this combination really successful in my weight loss plans. The first thing is exercising and how much you can put forth into it. The more you exercise, the more results you will see. The next thing is dieting and the calorie intake. If you exercise more, technically you could eat more? Always watch what you eat.

Now the last step in a good weight loss plan is always a good diet pill that can help you get to the end of the road. I have found Proactol which is a natural herbal diet pill to be the best around. It’s an appetite suppressant along with being a fat blocker which stops up to 28% of fat you eat. Read up about it at TheWeightLossPlace .com where I saved money on it. Proactol really works well with exercising which gives you plenty of energy to perform. Along with that you diet will be affected by Proactol due to the appetite suppressant and fat blocker. If you slip up on meals, the fat blocker kicks in. It’s really great to stop food cravings.

Concentrate on those three things and the combination is deadly for the fat cells in your body. Good luck and I hope this helps.
