Dr Oz: Alli Diet Pill Review
There are so many weight loss pills on the market today that is often hard to know which ones really work and most importantly, which ones are safe, so today Dr. Oz is breaking it all down and providing you with a guide so you can choose the one that is best for you. Dr. Oz asked Dr. Gretchen Phillips to explain why some diet pills work for some, but not for others who are trying to lose weight. She says diet pills can be a great tool for boosting weight loss, but you have to make sure you choose the right one in order for it to work.
If you enjoy high-fat, high-calorie meals then you need a diet pill that blocks fat. A couple options include FBCx and Alli, which can be purchased over the counter at a drugstore.
- Take with a high-fat meal.
- May cause diarrhea if you eat too much fattening food.

Dr Oz: Prescription Diet Pills Belviq & Qsymia
If you are someone who is always hungry then the next diet pill recommendations are the ones for you because they work to suppress your appetite. These are all available by prescription so you will need to talk to your medical provider if you are considering them for weight loss.
These two drugs work by changing your brain chemicals to make you feel full and prevent hunger. Dr. Phillips says anyone with seizure disorders or depression should talk to their doctor about whether these are safe options since they do affect Seratonin levels.
Dr Oz: Caffeine Diet Pill Warning
The last diet pills are for everyone who else who feels they are doing everything right, but cannot seem to lose weight. These recommendations are metabolism boosters, or themogenics, and they are the ones Dr. Phillips has the most reservations about because they contain chemicals that increase the Ephedrine in a person’s body that has caused problems in the past. That chemical increases the temperature in the body to help you burn more calories, but it is also increasing your blood pressure and heart rate, which could be dangerous for some people.
- Beware of Bitter Orange & Ma Huang
Dr. Oz believes a more natural, gentle nudge to your metabolism is a much safer route to take. Coffee and spices are both good food options to push your metabolism in the right direction without the dangerous side effects of a diet pill.
