The Latest Weight-Loss Craze... Combo-Pilling
Trend Spotter Majestic Media™ Finds Consumers Doubling Up on Diet Pills Like Zantrex®-3 and Relacore®… Experts Concerned

NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever wonder how Hollywood starlets get so thin, so fast? Majestic Media™, a company known for spotting cutting-edge trends before they go mainstream, believes it could be thanks to an uber-trendy, "underground" practice that's gaining momentum across the country, and that many people swear has helped them lose weight… without having to exercise or change what they eat. It's a highly controversial weight-loss practice called "Combo-Pilling" — taking two diet products that together are supposed to be more effective than just taking one. Majestic Media's experts find that the most popular combination typically involves one product that picks you up and one product that calms you down as you lose weight, and lose it fast.
Combo-Pilling really isn't new. The craze first started with the famous (or some would say infamous) Fen-Phen combo that swept the nation in the '90s. Fen-Phen was wildly popular — an estimated 6 million people used it — but it was eventually taken off the market, and the practice of Combo-Pilling became dormant for a while.
Years later, Combo-Pilling emerged again, though without much fanfare, when people — possibly following the lead of celebs — began combining weight-loss products on their own. Experts are, of course, concerned about this practice, but let's face it… there are two things we all know for sure: you can't be too rich or too thin (well... unless you're a Hollywood A-Lister). And most of us have spent years looking for the perfect diet pill. But the truth is, no single weight-loss program or diet pill addresses every aspect of weight loss. That's why so many people are turning to Combo-Pilling to help them shed pounds and finally get the thin, sexy body they've been dreaming of.
"The most popular Combo-Pilling duo seems to be Relacore®, called 'America's #1 Belly Fat Pill,' and Zantrex®-3, the high-energy diet pill that's been a consumer favorite for years," says Chantelle Daines, a Majestic Media analyst. "People are making claims of huge weight-loss success when they Combo-Pill with these two, possibly because Relacore helps address problematic nervous binge eating and stress-related belly fat, while Zantrex was formulated for rapid weight loss and an incredible burst of energy."
Both Relacore and Zantrex are readily available at WalMart, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and smarter retailers nationwide. It's a bit more difficult to find them online because you have to go to two separate websites. You can find Zantrex at www.Zantrex3.com and Relacore at www.Relacore.com.
For some, using a supplement that offers dual weight-loss products in one easy package is more appealing. The most powerful in this category is called BiphedAdrene®, the Super Powerful "Diet Pill" that's been flying off store shelves. Biphed's maker revealed to Ms. Daines that BiphedAdrene is a two-part system comprised of a unique "Complex Phenylethylamine Provisional" (for powerful appetite control, mood-elevation, and energy) — the "Purple Pill" — combined with an aggressive thermogenic compound (for fat burning and stamina) — the "Yellow Pill." This two-pronged attack on fat is apparently what makes this "Combo-Pilling" superstar so effective... and so popular. BiphedAdrene is available exclusively at GNC or direct from the manufacturer at www.Biphed.com. A 30-day supply costs $135, but if you use promo code COMBO at the manufacturer's website you get $25 off and free shipping.†
And it's not just the dietary supplement industry that's returning to Combo-Pilling. The U.S. FDA has just approved Qsymia (formerly Qnexa). It's a combo of phentermine, an appetite suppressant that was half of the Fen-Phen diet pill, and topiramate, which was originally designed as a drug to treat epilepsy and seizures. Because it's a drug, not a dietary supplement, you need to visit your doctor and get a prescription if you're interested in trying this Combo-Pill.
If you decide to try Combo-Pilling, remember that it's extremely controversial… you should definitely check with your health-care provider before trying ANY weight-loss program to ensure you are in overall good health.
