Sandra asks…

What are diet pills that a fourteen year old girl could buy without a prescription or her parents finding out?

I want to know what diet pills or an appetite suppressant I could buy at fourteen without a prescription and without my parents knowing. I play sports and don’t want to jeopardize my health so that I couldn’t play. I just want to control my hunger better or lose some weight, I’m only 5 ft. 2 in. And I weigh about 134 I want to get down to about 120 at the least. Can anyone help?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Don’t buy diet pills!! They do virtually nothing, just trust me. They are unhealthy. Try slim fast. Its a meal replacement that makes you feel full. I tastes like chocolate milk. Pills do nothing, but burn a whole in your pocket.

Jenny asks…

Most effective way to lose weight by running?

What is the most effective way to lose weight by running, I am doing a low intensity 50 minute run everyday. Is this the best way to be losing weight, do you guys have any more effective ways of losing weight with running???

weight loss cardiff answers:

Running easy along with controlling your calorie intake is the most effective way to lose weight.
Each mile burns about 100 calories, it takes 3500 calories to lose one pound.

So successful weight loss requires a good diet and exercise.

Your low intensity running could be burning as much as 500 calories, which adds up to a lot over a period of time.

weight loss cardiff answers:

It’s a lot easier to run if you lose weight, which can help you run faster if you don’t have extra weight dragging you down

Ken asks…

What are some diets? Just a diet that is effective for losing weight healthy and fas?

I want to look into some diets that can help me lose weight but i don’t really know any.

weight loss cardiff answers:

The key to any diet is to expend more calories than you consume. So the healthiest and fastest ways of doing this are rather opposites. The fastest way would be to exercise a lot and eat nothing. The healthiest way, and recommended, would be to eat 6 healthy small meals a day and get lots of exercise. It’s a rather simple process, just a lot of effort. Best of wishes.

John asks…

what different types of diets do prisoners receive?

I know they give muslims special diets and what not. But What about people that are lactose intolerant, and what about people with IBS etc. Also if some panzy claimed to be a vegan in prison would they get a diet?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Your question needs to be narrowed to a particular prison in order to be answered. You have jails in Saudi Arabia, West Texas, New York City, San Diego and their policies are all different. You have local jails, county jails, and federal jails.

Years ago, an adherent to a Macrobiotic diet was imprisoned who was following very strict guidelines. He required pure water, not municipal water with fluoride and chlorine contaminants. The food was totally unacceptable and he was imprisoned for an indefinite period of time. Therefore, he could not eat and could not drink for an indefinite period of time in a local jail. In effect, the warden considered his refusal to eat an act of rebellion. He tried to say that he was under physician’s orders, but that did not work. He was told that he had to eat what everyone else was eating.

The prison populations had bets about when he would break his fast. Finally, after five days, the prisoner was released from jail.

I believe this to be an important issue. Prison populations are vulnerable to the caprice of officials. As a whole plant based food advocate, I drink well water from a deep well. Over an extended period of time, fluorine and chlorine compounds and other pollutants have short-term effects and can cause serious illness over a lifetime that may not be correlated with the contaminated water supply. Most Americans have significant levels of pollutants in our bodies. I avoid any food that is from a bottle, can, package, or any animal based food product. Our children represent another vulnerable population, and they receive poorly balanced diet that almost certainly prepares them for a lifetime of poor nutrition habits and eventual struggles with diabetes, cancer, and vascular diseases.

Donald asks…

What are the best diets to follow to lose weight?

I really want to lose weight and have tried diets in the past but nothing seems to really work. (I tried weight watchers and didn’t get any results)
What in your opinion is the best diet to follow to lose weight? I am really motivated to actually do something about it because enough is enough and I don’t want to carry around all this weight any more.

Also what are some healthy snacks to put into a lunch box for work?

weight loss cardiff answers:

You did not get any results with weight watchers?
That is weird.
How many hours did you exercise?
Are you sure you’re not a sleep eater?
It’s like being a sleepwalker but instead of just sleepwalking and doing weird stuff (I put my mouse pad in my dishwasher two nights ago and of course do not remember anything about it) you’re also raiding the fridge (leftovers are easy targets) and kitchen cupboards…so make sure you don’t have any cookies in there or you should use locks (sleep eaters cannot operate locks, even just childproof systems, no more than sleepwalkers can open the lock of an outside door or they’ll all be roaming the streets at night).

Try to forget about food and diets (so you don’t compensate deprivation and forbidden food obsessions by sleep eating).

You think that you need healthy snacks?
No you don’t if you have healthy meals that can sustain you till the next meal.
If you eat a crappy lunch like, I don’t know…a sandwich (very American, 70% of adults are overweight)…that might not sustain you until dinner.
A proper lunch would be like eating a salad or soup (appetizer), a dish (meat/poultry/fish and veggies), some dairies (cheese, yogurt or ice cream) and a desert (usually some fruit/fruit salad, applesauce or a cake).
Unless you exercise to curb hunger.
After about 30 minutes in your THR zone, the body starts releasing chemicals to prevent pain and hunger so you can keep going. Those natural chemicals (endorphins, epinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, among others) make you feel so good…happy, energetic…
The best appetite suppressant is to exercise in your THR zone until some timer goes “ding” and some kitchen appliance (Foreman grill or rotisserie, steamer, slow cooler, pressure cooker…) tells you that dinner is ready.

Do not have a “diet” diet, where you’re told what to eat. Eat a simple healthy diet, so you can satisfy your cravings and answer your body’s need for some missing nutrients. If I’m building muscle mass, I’ll need a lot of carbs to do the weight training (because it’s anaerobic and fat burning shuts down) and then I’ll get huge cravings for eggs, nuts or a good juicy filet mignon (need for protein for the “repairing stronger” part) otherwise, I would only eat eggs or meat like once a week.

Eating healthy is about avoiding the unhealthy food as much as possible. Once you stay away from fast food (any restaurant food), packaged and boxed food (except for bread, pasta, rice), canned food, prepared and processed food (cereals included but you can have Weetabix), then you’re left with the fruits/veggies, whole wheat food (the brown kind of bread, pasta), brown rice, corn, legumes (beans, peas, lentils, peanuts…), meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairies, and the good kind of oil (olive, avocado, nuts, fish).

You can have any of the “bad stuff” occasionally so they don’t become forbidden obsessions. Have some French fries, or one slice of pizza (with your favorite veggies) or a cookie, once in a while. Just don’t do it every day and watch out for portion sizes. You can also “push the envelope” and make your own French fries from scratch (never frozen and defrosted) in healthy canola oil, blot, blot, blot, just a dash of salt and you get healthy French fries or you can make homemade pizza with good healthy ingredients.

Canned food is okay if you use it to enhance a recipe. Like canned tomatoes have more antioxidants than fresh ones as they are more concentrated.
I also use canned corns in my recipes. And I like canned asparagus with canned beets (in a salad with vinaigrette). I tried fresh (steamed) asparagus and beets but I prefer the soft texture on the canned ones. As long as your can is not some dreadful soup or prepared meal with tons of sodium.

Also the cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer (using water), a rotisserie (using heat and herbs), a slow cooker (using homemade broth and herbs), a pressure cooker, a grill…

Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.

Remember…never use food (or the lack of it) to lose body fat.
Exercise for 3,500 calories for each pound of body fat that you wish to lose.
You usually need to first GAIN muscle mass weight while getting in shape for the first 3 to 6 months.

Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Mandy asks…

Do the green tea weight loss pills really work?

I just purchased a big bottle of green tea weight loss pills, do they really work? And any tips on weight loss?
There’s always these dieting things that say that green tea helps burn fat and such… Is this just a myth or does it actually help weight loss?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week and you can easily do this without the help of any diet pills. These pills may get more than 2 pounds off per week but it is unhealthy and probably not long lasting. As soon as you stop the pill the weight will come back and you will gain more weight than you lost putting you in a worse position. Instead of trying to lose weight quickly try to do it over a period of time. It is healthier and more likely to stay off for good. For more information on healthy weight loss, visit

weight loss cardiff answers:

The only OTC meds that I know that get IDed are cough medicines (because you can get high off it) and nicotine patches/gum and that’s just stupid. If someone under 18 wants to stop smoking that’s a good thing.
