      Weight loss tablets DO NOT WORK

      I purchased Bonsal after I had seen the advert in a magazine, I had just had my second child and I was desperate to lose weight.

      I had tried several other weight loss programmes with no success, after reading the advert I thought that this sounded like the miracle I needed.

      Unfortunately, and this is a warning to other ladies or gentlemen out there that feel this is a solution for you, these tablets do not work, they do not do what they promise, and when I phoned for a refund, I never got it.

      All the diet tablet adverts we see in magazines are worded to make us believe these can work, even now I look and believe that 'maybe' this will work for me??

      Please believe me I have been tricked and fooled so many times, they DO NOT WORK, all that happens is companies and scam artists make lots of money out of our misery.

      Just cut doen on food, walk, excercise gently and I promise you, you will lose weight this way.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Fear of death, restlessness, inability to sleep or eat - that pretty much sums up my experience of slimming pills. I had an incredible fear of death the whole time that I was taking slimming pills, so much so that I was afraid to go to sleep for a great deal of the time and on one fateful night became so obsessed that my father had died in his sleep that I went into his bedroom, grapped him by his pyjama front and slapped him around the face. He was less than impressed, I can tell you. (If you think this is a strange way to help someone who is dying, this is further evidence of how badly slimming pills messed up my mind). I will admit that I only took the pills for four days so perhaps it takes a while to get used to them but I think I would have been seriously ill if I had taken them for much longer as I was unable to sleep other than for about two hours each day. I could feel my heart racing, I couldn't eat, I couldn't concentrate and I couldn't keep still. But worst of all, I develop this total paranoia that if I went to sleep, I would die. These pills might well make you lose weight but it is not worth it due to how you feel. The clinic that I went to seemed to have a steady stream of clients so perhaps not everyone reacts like I did but you must be careful. The clinic was abysmal too - clearly only after the money. I paid a £20 consultation fee and £7.50 for a weeks supply of the pills. You were supposed to go back each week for more but there was no way I was ever going to do that again. I was in with doctor for less than five minutes - she didn't weigh me, she didn't ask about my eating and exercise habits or if there were any medical reasons linked with my weight. In fact, the only thing she did ask me is whether I was prepared to commit to a ten week course of pills - basically, whether I was going to pay! This might seem like a miracle way to shed excess pounds but the pills made
        me feel really ill. It was lucky that I took these pills during the summer vac because there is no way that I would have been able to study or work whilst taking them. This occurred about five years ago now so perhaps different pills are being used which do not have such an extreme affect. To be fair, the clinic said that people who have a tendency to paranoia or anxiety (do they mean me!!!) sometimes experience an increased sense of anxiety from taking the pills. I was just about to start the third year of my degree at the time so probably was a bit stressed - but if they had asked me any sensible questions during the consultation, they would have realised this. This pills clearly work for some people. They may well have made me lose weight if I had been able to put up with the side effects. It may even be that the side effects ease off as your body becomes accustomed to the drugs. But is it really worth it? You might be thin but would you be healthy? If these pills really speed your metabolism up so that you burn off fat at a high rate, what does this do to your body on a long-term basis? I have no idea but it can't be good for you.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Being an overweight mother(3 children in 4 years) my body is in great need of an overhaul at present. Exercise at the gym & swimming would help me considerably if I had someone to mind the children on a regular basis- husband works long hours & by the time we've got the children asleep its 9.30pm & we still haven't eaten! So when I read about Bonsal in one of those health food shops freeby magasines I thought I would give it a try. Bonsal is derrived from shellfish & the article I read said that you never see fat sea creatures so they claim what is good for fish could be good for us. Bonsal works by preventing your body from absorbing the fat content of foods,the food is drawn to the Bonsal & it becomes bulky & indigestable. Being a natural product it can't harm you, so is much better than resorting to 'Slimming Pills' with all their side effects-most of which are extreemely dangerous. You take 1 or 2 capsules before each meal with a glass of water, following a healthy diet & do exercise. I've been taking them for a week now & have lost about 3 lbs; who knows there might be a slim me reporting back in a few months time ! UPDATE: The only places you can buy Bonsal are in pharmacies who stock alternative health products & on some internet store sites - look up Google search engine & type in Bonsal & some of the links are for companies who sell it.
