I saw the previews for this episode of Dr. Oz and was very interested to hear it. Unfortunately, I missed it. However, I was able to find the clips on this segment and wanted to share with you.
Let me first let you know my stance on diet pills/drugs. I think they are dangerous, especially when they are abused or not taken as directed by a doctor. However, I think doing nothing at all is even more dangerous. In part 2 of the segment the personal trainer said something along the lines of, if someone needs this to believe in when they don't believe in themselves, then that is good. For some people weight loss is not easy and they may just need a push in the right direction. Paired with a healthy outlook on changing your lifestyles, so that you are not dependent on any drugs to stay thin, and a good exercise and good nutrition, I think these pills could be beneficial to those of us that need that jumpstart.

I think Dr. Oz presented this very fairly.
Here is a little more on the drug: Huffington Post Article
If this drug gets approval, would you consider discussing it with you doctor?
