My Experience with Adipex Diet Pills and Why I Prefer Supplements

by | Oct 31, 2020 | Dieting Tricks | 0 comments

My experience with Adipex diet pills is extremely limited, but I’m asked about it increasingly regularly.  Because of it, I’ve decided to write an entire blog post about what I have an have not gone through with this obesity drug, and why my preference is for supplements instead.

Before I Talk About My Experience with Adipex Diet Pills

Before I get going in describing my experience with Adipex diet pills, I want to preface this whole post by saying that I have nothing against this medication as a part of a healthy obesity treatment.  I know that Adipex results can be extremely helpful when combined with diet changes and increases in exercise.

It is a drug that has helped hundreds of thousands of people to find their doctor prescribed weight loss efforts more achievable, so they could overcome their obesity. In this way, they’ve been helped with reducing their risk of obesity-related illnesses and conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes or even the risk of some form of cancer.

Why I Do Not Use This Medication Despite Hearing About Positive Adipex Results

I have never hidden the fact that I’m overweight. In fact, over the last six months, I’d become increasingly overweight before I brought things under control again.  I’m definitely on the higher side of overweight, if you measure it by my BMI.  That said, I’m not obese.  Since I don’t have obesity, my experience with Adipex diet pills has been quite limited.

In fact, it’s been limited to two main events.  The first was in talking to my doctor about it because I was curious to know if I could get it and if it would help me lose weight. I was struggling with weight loss then because – as you know if you’ve been keeping up with my blog for a while – I love to bake, and I love to eat what I make. I hadn’t figured out how to balance that yet. The second was when I saw a website that was promising to sell it without the need for a prescription – a scam, and I didn’t shop from them.

Why I Prefer Supplements

For me, a woman who is overweight but not obese and who is adopting healthy lifestyle changes that I plan to keep up over the long term, over the counter supplements are the option for me. They give me support to make it easier to stick to my efforts and keep them up, so I don’t end up giving in to challenges like fatigue, losing focus, or even a dragging metabolism.

What is Nutritional Psychology? Can It Help Weight Control?

Nutritional psychology is a subject I stumbled upon on social media – of all places – and that sent me into a massive online rabbit hole to better understand what it’s all about. Keeping in mind that even with all my best googling, I’m still eons from becoming an expert, I still thought this topic was fascinating enough that I wanted to share it.

Daily Sugary Drinks of All Kinds Lower Your Life Expectancy

I just read about the scariest study that now says that drinking sugary drinks on a daily basis can actually shorten your life.  The horrifying thing about it is that I have always joked that a certain giant pop or gas station slushy or other syrup-based beverage was likely cutting a day off my life.

The 2021 Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen Lists for Fruits and Vegetables

A couple of weeks ago, I talked about research suggesting organic foods might help prevent weight gain, so this week seemed like a natural jump into the 2021 Dirty Dozen list.  The reason is that while I’m taking organic foods far more seriously as a part of my shopping list, I wanted to know if I should just get some organics or try to eat only organics.
