Most Popular Diet Pills 2009 2010

Most Popular Diet Pills

2009 was a profitable year for the over the counter diet pill industry with a few new products being introduced into the market. 2010 is set to be even more so.

Here is a list of the most popular diet pills from the previous year. These results are taken from approximate volume.

If you do decide to buy a diet pill be careful to read the reviews – as most popular doesn’t necessarily equate to being most effective.

Alli Fat Blocker

Alli 2010Alli was introduced to Britain in the spring. A huge marketing campaign ensured Alli got off to a successful launch as media campaign on the television, newspaper, magazines and radio meant that anyone who was at least considering a diet pill would have at least added Alli to their possible list.

Alli is chemically produced drug – a lower strength version of Xenical. It can be purchased without prescription but can cause one or two side effects

Unique Hoodia

Unique Hoodia 2010Suppressing appetite is one of the most effective ways to reduce calorie intake – Hoodia is considered to be the most effective natural appetite suppressant. To further enhance the positivity Unique Hoodia is accepted to be the highest strength genuine Hoodia Gordonii capsule available to purchase.

Unique Hoodia is South African sourced, certified and distributed in the UK.


Lipobind 2010Lipobind was the most prominent diet pill on display in store at the likes of Boots, Superdrug and Tesco – this was until Alli was introduced.

Lipobind is a fat binder that stop the absorption of fat from the food that your eat.

Lipobind professes to be the best selling diet pill in the UK. There are several associations with the minor celebrity and weight loss success stories.


Proactol 2010Proactol is also fat binder but a higher dosage than Lipobind.

Proactol is classed as a medical device type 1 but available to buy without prescription. Proactol is also clinically proven and has all necessary accreditation.

The last 2 years have seen Proactol receive “diet pill of the year” title awarded by the Daily Telegraph in their yearly poll of successful dieters.


What Are The Best Diet Pills

What Diet Pills Are The Best

What is the best diet pill to buyThe question of what are the best diet pills has too many variables and factors to give a succinct answer.

The question should be – What are the best diet pills … for me

The diet pill industry is difficult to navigate for the average consumer. Hours, days if not weeks can be spent on research that seems to contradict itself. The internet is a great resource but can often be guilty of over exaggeration, hype and just a smattering of untruth.

So, who do we believe, have the people behind the  marketing gone just too far. The producers of consumer and prescription only diet pills are trying to claim a stake of a billion pound/dollar industry and try not to let fact get in the way when promoting their latest slimming products.

It is the poor consumer that seems to suffer. While the diet pill industry unveils its latest product in a fanfare of hype and celebrity endorsement the consumer is left to unravel the good from the bad from the downright ugly.

The prescription diet pill industry is kept fairly in check, rules and regulation govern what they can and cannot say. It is the non prescription, commercially available and over the counter industry that is free to make outrageous and largely unsubstantiated claims.

A large proportion of consumer diet pills available to us to buy freely on the open market have no medical backing, have undergone absolutely no clinical trials and have no certification to back up their weight loss claims.

If you are in a position whereby you have an extremely high Body Mass Index (BMI) it is highly advised to consult with your GP or doctor. Prescription diet pills (or diet drugs) are aimed at the obese or very overweight. You may be eligible for a course of medication depending on the stance of your GP and their attitude toward the diet pill.

For everyone else it is the gauntlet of the non prescription, over the counter market that beckons.

So what do we do if we are not considered dangerously overweight or obese, what should we do if we want to lose weight and have no hope of our GP giving us a course of  diet pills that will give us the shape and physique that we want. Who do we trust.

A majority of commercially available diet products are viewed as a commodity and usual practice is to try to supply to as many retail and online outlets as possible, even eBay. This is a real give away that profit is the forefront as opposed to consumer benefit.

Below are three best of breed diet pills that are either available only via prescription or free to buy direct from the manufacturer without the intervention of a third party stockist.
