Nelson - Thanks to herbal weight-loss supplements, I've dropped ten pounds!

Yes, Jeanette - and you clogged the out-house in doing so!

FTFA: "There isn't any magic solution to losing weight. The only way you can lose weight in a sustainable way is to cut down on your dietary intake by 200 or 300 calories a day and exercise 100 to 200 calories more," he says. "None of this other stuff works."

Uh oh. Sorry Farkers.

Bah lies! A little surgery to cut away all the extra crap and your weight will drop...I laugh at your petty attempts to tell me nothing else works

You mean things with "Herbal" in it are complete scams?

You don't say.

You like the thought of possibly having to do laundry and a shower after eating lunch?

Also, the herbal diet pills that worked were ECA stacks... ephedrine, caffine, asprin. Man I used to love those. Metabolift was my favorite.

but then some dumb ass celebrity ball player had to down a few dozen of them and give himself a heart attack and now you cannot buy them anymore. Sucks.

Now all that is out there are poop pills like in the article, or ones with yohimbie that make your skin feel like it is crawling off.

I thought that having a warning that stated: May cause anal leakage was the greatest thing I'd ever read on a bag of chips.

"That was a sweet goal by Berglund, a beautiful wrap-around that left Khabibulin sprawling. And speaking of sprawling, my nation has really grown in CN, the most awesome browser-based game out there. Come score a hat-trick of fun with my alliance, Farkistan, and win the Stanley Cup of competent nation building!"

If you wanna lose weight, exerbike twenty minutes upon waking every day then take a cold bath. You will raise your rest BMR to a point where diet will be largely immaterial. Unfortunately, this will not give you the jostling your GI tract needs to function, so jog on the trampoline some. The one problem with this plan is the monotony. Exerbiking for twenty seems like hours and hours, subjectively. Get recordings of old Soul Train episodes and play them while you ride.

Dude, you don't clean anything with Olean. You need some psyllium husk. Turns itself (and your waste) into a giant happy pipe cleaner.

Eating less and exercising more is NOT the only way to lose weight. You could also go to outer space and live on, for example, the Moon or Mercury. You'll weigh a lot less!
 
2009-02-23 03:35:21 PM  
This is good news... because I don't give a shiat.

You can get the same effect with those Ally pills. Those fat blockers will cause you to have the same thing happen and I know the pills suggest users to "take a change of clothes" when taking for the first time.

I hear they have pills for that now.

Two novice nuns go into a liquor store to buy a bottle of whiskey. The shop owner says "I don't know if I should be selling this to you..."

The nuns assure him "oh, this is for Mother Superior's constipation."
"Oh, in that case, I'll sell it to you."

Later, the shopkeep locks up and walks home, and passing through the park he sees the two novices drunk off their ass on a bench.

"You told me the whiskey was for Mother Superior's constipation!"

"It shure ish!" they slurred, "when she shees us in this shtate, she'll shiat herself!"

If you think those worked well, try eating a whole bunch of sugar-free candy.

I need to lose weight in the worst way, so I think I'll go to Mercury.

There's certainly no worse way to lose weight.
