hey bb's 


so i went from 175+ to 102 in less than 4 months years ago through bulimia (diagnosed) and then it became anorexia. long story short i fucked up my metabolism/body, lost teeth and hair from it too. 

my question is, now that i'm older (26) i've gained back up to 150 (not by choice) and its been hard to lose weight even by lowering my calories and going to the gym. I was recommended metabolism pills, but i mean do they actually work? does anyone have experience with them? 
I noticed I get cracked out for maybe 4/5 hours and then I lose all my energy in a bad drop when i take them. I do lose my appetite too, its only been less than a week.

thx if anyone responds x

When I was younger I took 20-60 mgs of sibutramine a day. Lost weight faster than ever, found myself in the ER. Cannot recommend it. Nearly killed me.

Unless prescribed by a legitimate doctor (not those shady online ones), it's incredibly dangerous to take what is essentially speed/horse asthma pills

Chick I was in treatment with years ago had a stroke from diet pills aged just 19

i got some in boots (irish chain pharmacy) before with some natural ingredients and I used to take 1 or two before a big meal and then 1 or 2 before my daily 5k runs (haven't tdone that in a while lol) and i got to my lw

that may have been because or the restriction+ intense exercise but i felt they helped, placebo effect maybe 


conclusion: i had no bad side effects and did perceive good ones but they may not have been related to the metabolism pills
