I have just been prescribed merida diet pills for an appetite suppresant. Have any of you guys ever taken these pills before and do they work? I did some research and it said they are only good for a year. Then after that everything slows down. I hope I do not have to take them that long. I only eay vegetables each and every day. I go for daily walks outside and hour each day. And I am on a strict 20 grams 1000 calorie diet. If I get to 1000 calories. I only eat when I am hungry and I only eat vegetables. Meat drives me insane.

"Do NOT take diet pills! They are dangerous!! Last year I was visiting my parents and took diet pills on top on my exercise routine and normal diet. I was 26 at the time, 5'11, 180 lbs. By week three I was sick. I had diarrhea, dry heaves, dizziness, headaches, and a general feeling of being sick. I thought I had caught the flu or something. I had lost 13 lbs in 4 days. One morning I told my mom I didn't feel good. My vision kept blacking out and I felt (for lack of a better way to say it) stoned. Later that afternoon I was walking from the bathroom to my bedroom (a 5 foot walk) and I passed out. I was rushed to the hospital emergency where they did a bunch of tests on me. My pulse was up to 120, My blood pressure was 150/40, they had to start me on an IV, the did an EKG on me, took blood and urine samples, and a whole barrage of other tests. They finally got me stabilized and said that I was dehydrated and malnutritioned. I told him that I took diet pills. When I mentioned diet pill, the doctors face lit up and said that's why. He said they can cause a whole bunch of health problems, including death. He told me to toss the diet pills or next time I might not be so lucky. I was kept in the hospital for almost 10 hours, given 3 or 4 IVs, potassium, juices, and monitored (by the EKG, blood pressure, and heart rate machines) every 15 minutes. Please take my story as a warning. If you seriously want to loose weight there are better ways (I know because I've lost weight after this) The quickest way is to cut out red meats, starches, breads, sugars, alcohol, and sodas. Eat veggies (salads are good), soups, and drink TONS of water. If you get hungry between a meal, drink water to fill up. In moderation eat white meats, and fruits (fruits contain natural sugars, and that can put on weight) Practice portion control. Yes, you'll feel hungry at first, but think of your goal, and soon your stomach will start shrinking and you won't have that feeling anymore. Eat 5 times a day. A small breakfast. A mid-morning snack, such as an apple. A small lunch. A mid-afternoon snack, such as carrots. A lite dinner. Do not eat any later than 7pm (6pm is better.) Go exercise for at least an hour - two a day, incorporating weight training along with your cardio. Cardio helps to melt the fat, while weight training builds muscle. Muscle burns fat, even when you are resting. You get the idea. It also gives tone and definition. Also do a few yoga and pilates exercises to help tone those hard to reach and stubborn areas"

I am vacationing in Merida/Progreso in July of 2007. We have already rented a car, but we'd like to also rent a motorcycle for the week. Any suggestions as to where I might find one?

Rockin' Mel S :
"In Progreso I think there are guys that rent scooters when the cruise ship is in so they might also rent for a week. I also know that there is scooter rental at the Reef hotel/resort near Telchac Puerto. Both these may be seasonal though but I doubt it since I understand the area is much busier in the summer than in the winter when I've been there. I'm not sure how useful these will be if you are looking for a motorcycle they may or may not have those. Here's a page of car rental places maybe they could help you out: Good luck."

Would it be better to spend time in Cancun first or after staying in Merida? Will be in Merida for three weeks. What is easier flight wise, to and from the states?

Rockin' Mel S :
"Generally speaking it's much easier to get to Cancun then Merida. There are a few direct flights to Merida from Miami (Aeromexico), sometimes Atlanta (Delta) and Houston (Continental) but from almost anywhere else you are going to end up with one or more connectors. Many more flights to Cancun for sure. I don't know much about the hotels in Merida. I've just visited there from the coast on day trips. You could try this website: Merida's a great city, I hope you enjoy your time there."
