Shellac isn't vegetarian, it comes from bugs <a href="http://www.vegansociety.com/html/animals/exploitation/shellac.php" target="_blank">http://www.vegansociety.com/html/ani...on/shellac.php</a><br><br><br><br>
Diet pills are quite dangerous(<a href="http://www.something-fishy.org/dangers/methods.php" target="_blank">http://www.something-fishy.org/dangers/methods.php</a>) and usually work by having a laxative, metabolism speed-up and appetite suppressant effect. A safer veggie alternative might be to try herbal teas like this one <a href="http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-local/frameset/detail/425124.html" target="_blank">http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-...il/425124.html</a> along with a well balanced diet to prevent over-eating.<br><br><br><br>
(If you need to talk you know where I am, ok?)

Those are the only 2 that caught my eye.

Whether it's in a bag or a capsule, the herbs can still be the same.

I don't think diet pills are suitable for anyone - veg*an or omni. Like <b>Dove in Gray</b> said they are dangerous and habit forming. They're also just a quick fix. Once you stop taking the pills, you gain back all the weight you lost (and sometimes more).
