“Leptoprin is too expensive for the casual dieter.” What pray tell is a casual dieter? and Leptoprin is too expensive for anyone with a brain. You can get the same ingredients for a fraction of the cost, if you really think they’ll work, but frankly, they aren’t going to be the magical combination you wanted.
There is no magic weight loss pill that will do it for you. If you want to take supplements that can help in your quest to get healthier, there are many useful choices, but there is no magic diet pill.
Here’s the ingredient list for Leptoprin:
Calcium (amino acid chelate) 264mg (67% RDA)
Vitamin B6 25mg (1250% RDA)
Acetylsalicylic acid 324mg (aspirin)
Green Tea Extract (no amount listed)
L-Tyrosine (no amount listed)
Cayenne (no amount listed)
Keep in mind, a mere speck of an ingredient added allow them to put it on the label. Without listing the amounts is suspect indeed, but frankly, even if they did list an amount, I’d be hard pressed to trust it.

What Does it Take to Develop a New Diet?
Wow! That’s a little harsh. Somehow I don’t think eating a donut at my desk really is equal to the other choices (sex, drugs, drink — hey, he forgot rock-and-roll!).
Levine’s colleague University of Minnesota professor David Bernlohr and obesity researcher realized he’d gotten fat. Yes, that’s right. Just because you research obesity does not mean you are immune. Oh, no. The rotund Bernlohr decided to create his own diet and dubbed it the “Northwoods Diet,” in a vain attempt at poking fun at the fad diet industry and the popular South Beach diet.
His diet is pretty tame: Three meals a day with smaller portions and no food after 7:30 p.m. That’s it. Probably he’ll write a 200 page book about it soon.
Bernlohr explained his diet, “is just common sense to people who study nutrition or metabolism.” What he didn’t explain was he didn’t bother to follow his own “common sense” and keep his weight under control in the first place.
Don’t be a stastic. Make small changes like taking a bowlful of chips instead of the entire bag. Practice portion control by eating a piece of fruit and then waiting an hour before eating something else. Cut your sandwich in half and eat the other half later as a snack, instead of a candy bar.
Notice how often you put something in your mouth out of habit or because “it’s there,” and then take steps to break that pattern. It begins with awareness.
Enjoy what you eat, take time with it. Notice it, smell it, taste it. Don’t just inhale food any more! Savor it. Take teensy bites. Let a piece of chocolate melt in your mouth. Every chew releases flavor and texture into your mouth and that is where the pleasure in eating lies.
Together we can work to bring down those annual deaths from obesity by focusing on ourselves and what we choose to eat.
One jumbo Snicker’s Bar serves 3! Who knew?
Lunch or snack?
Remember that Seinfeld episode where Elaine uses a knife and fork to eat her Snickers? Now I know why: I recently read the label.
Luckily I just found Mike Master’s blog “Fulltime Vagabond” and he explains the deal with Snickers and dieting.
Not three other things to make the feeling go away, but that exact food. If you cannot have that exact food, then catalog it for later, and have something similar. For instance, if you want something crunchy and salty, is it the salt or the crunch, or both? Think about it. Would crunchy vegetables give you the same “mouth feel” or does it need to be salty? If what you want isn’t readily available, can you go get some?
If you expect to only want what is “good for you” you’re setting yourself up to fail. You’ll obviously want other things. Just today I wanted nuts, badly. So I ate nuts, lots of nuts. Handfuls of nuts. Far more than I’d normally eat if I were in my natural state but this was a craving, and sometimes a craving needs to be satisfied. So I visited the nut jar several times during the day.
So how do I feel now? Great. Satisfied. Excellent. I ate the nuts, I’m happy. Nuts to you. Give it a go and let me know what happens.
