Question by : Is it legal to buy weight loss supplements as a minor?
Such as the Acai berry pill thing (does that actually work by the way?) and other weight loss pills, shots, milkshakes, etc. I am 13 and I wanna loose weight so I am wondering if they will let me buy these things.

Don’t waste your money they don’t work. Reduce the hollow calories from your diet such as soda, candy, added sugars etc and do some regular exercise.

    They advise that you need to be 18, but any age restriction will be printed on the container. Some stores make their own rules.

    At 13 you really need a doctor and/or a dietitian’s help to lose weight.
    Unless you are obese it’s better to aim at not gaining more weight because as you grow taller your BMI will level out.

    Weight loss drugs cause side effects on the body, and the rebound after the drug was discontinued. Yoga and aerobic exercise are a very good way to lose weight.
