Okay everyone, its time for a reminder...this one about diet pills.

I know that none of us are doing everything that we can to be healthy...thats why most of us are here. But there are some things that you need to keep in mind to be at least a little safe. This one is mostly about diet pills.

I take the Original Stacker 2 pills and the ephedra free Stacker 2 pills. Since I've been on them I've lost about 20 pounds. Yesterday I passed out. In the grocery store. I had accidently ODed on the pills and after having a serious panic attack I thought I was okay so I went to the grocery store and passed out while standing in line. Yes, try to convince the EMTs that you're not anorexic (hey, I'm not! I'm Ed-nos!) while you're passed out at the store and all you're buying is diet green tea and celery. Fun times.

If you take diet pills make sure not to exceed the recommended dosage. Start out slow, using less than the recommended dosage and slowly work up to the recommended dosage. Do not fast while on diet pills, they work off of the food and you need that food for them to work. If your heart starts racing or you feel that it is slowing down, DO NOT BE ALONE. If you feel that you can't tell someone why you feel bad, at least tell them that you do. DO NOT GO TO THE GROCERY STORE ALONE! DO NOT DRIVE! If you are alone and you feel like you are going to pass out, your heart is racing, you are dizzy or you get scared because of how you are feeling call 911. Being questioned about your eating habits while you get help is better than hitting your head on something or having a heart attack and dying alone.

Do not mix diet pills and make sure to drink plenty of water. If you are going to be out in the heat drink extra water, make sure you do not get too hot and be sure to cool off if you start feeling faint.

Yes, this is crossposted.
