anyway, lately i've been questioning my mentality around this. i tend to think that any food eaten within the half or so surrounding taking the diet pill doesn't "really count." or it knocks off 100 calories here or there, or the caffeine temporarily boosts my metabolism enough to burn some of the damage off.
for those of you who have taken diet pills in the past, or take them in the present, what sort of ideas do you have regarding them? why do you take them and what do you find their purpose to be, rational or not? i'm interested in hearing any of your ideas.
