Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill? Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all. Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients? One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill. Dosage: It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label. Effects: The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided. Promises: If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim. Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available. Copyright 2006, Diet Pill Reviews

Alternative To Typical Synthetic Supplements IS NECESSARY, Say Experts Whole food supplements is a topic of worldwide interest currently. A profusion of evidence has recently emerged suggesting that common synthetic multivitamin supplements may be hazardous to your health. Goran Bjelakovic, a reputed scientist from the School of Copenhagen, headed up a massive meta-study that looked at the results of 67 placebo-controlled trials previously performed to look for the effects of vitamin and anti-oxidant supplements on durability. In the final end, the scholarly research combined observations of 232 000 test subjects. Through the use of such a huge population sample, a study can become much more powerful with regards to spotting large-scale developments and overcoming individual bias. The results of the analysis, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, were nothing significantly less than shocking. Looking at patients with diabetes, cardiovascular disease and lung cancer, as well as healthy, normal individuals, there is no apparent advantage to taking popular fractionated supplements like Supplement A, Supplement E, Vitamin C, Selenium, or beta-Carotene. Actually, the results went in the contrary direction - there was a greater chance of death (16 percent) amongst Supplement A users, a 7 percent higher death count amongst beta-Carotene users, and a 4 percent mortality upsurge in Vitamin E users. Beta-Carotene and Retinol, promoted as anti-carcinogenic agents, may promote lung cancer. That is right - pills marketed as helping you towards a longer, healthier life are actually correlated with a speedier demise. This study used typical supplements on the marketplace made from synthetic vitamins. To add salt to the wound, a recent research published in the British Journal of Nutrition under the unimaginative title of "Ascorbic Acid Supplementation Does Not Attenuate Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness Pursuing Muscle-Damaging Exercise But May Delay The Recovery Process" indicated that supplementation with anti-oxidants from synthetic resources may reverse many of the beneficial effects of physical training. Now, this isn't to say that anti-oxidants or vitamin supplements are bad for you. Definately not it - these supplements were created based on solid science. Anti-oxidants remain believed to protect cells from the ravages of free radicals. The problem, rather, is the idea that you can get those advantages from synthetic isolated compounds. Disease and the aging process are usually far more complicated than test-tube studies can take into account. Furthermore, the presssing problem of bioavailability is an ever-present concern. Many typical synthetic supplements include huge amounts of the advertised vitamin, but absence the additional compounds had a need to ensure that their key ingredients are actually ingested by the body. Passing straight through the digestive system, these 'miracle health cures' often wind up doing little beyond offering people expensive urine. To the rescue...Whole Food Supplements. Website:

Hi Bjorn,

I was just browsing around a little looking and stumbled onto your website.

Couldn't help but notice the white Premier snare what you call a 2035. Are you sure that it isn't a 2005 snare. I play a 2005 Premier snare and always believed that the difference between those two were that the 2035 has a 'throw off' snare and the 2005 a parallel strainer...

Furthermore, great site !

Great site!! valuable tips and info plus fun to read. I'm a big Premier fan too using the same method to clean up my old drums! Everybody always thinks my sets are a couple of years old. Quality always keeps its shine and they sound amazing.

Great website! If you're half as good a drummer as a writer, you should be a pleasure to listen to! Thanks for all the helpful info regarding restoration projects, and I especially enjoyed the project you did for your son. What a lucky kid! I'm putting together a starter kit for my grandson (one of 12 grandchildren).

Hey there, love your site. Great job on the Olympics. I have a whopper of a restore project myself, in a 1963 Premier, with Mahogany Duraplastic. I'd like to find out where to get the wrap for the finish, and talk drums with ya sometime. Take care, JJ.

Great website you have here, really interesting as a Premier owner myself. In fact I'm looking to sell my kit at present, which is listed up over here ... If you happen to know anyone who might like a white APK, do get in contact. Regards, Stephen

Hi Bjorn

Just want to compliment you on a very informative web site. 

You've given the Premier bug again, so when I've done my kit (must first go scrounge for one again), then I'll send you some pics.

Thanks again!

Simon South Africa

Thanks for the kind words Simon, nice to know people still look at the site, even in South Africa haha! Good luck getting another Premier kit. All the best!

Great refurbishing work! 

Must be quite the proud father--looks like an upcoming young drummer. 

Best, Dave

Thanks Dave, the little one is into all sorts of sports and hobbies at the moment and does love music, but doesn't spend as much time on the kit as I'd hoped, but he's only 7 so there's time yet!

Hi mate, I was just surfing for info on the Premier 1026 beaded steel shell snare and somehow ended up on your cool site. I love the great pics of your awesome drums,like you Premier has been my fave for years,even before I could play LOL. I used to stare in wonder at the Olympic kits in the music shops in Liverpool back in the 70's,but never could afford a kit. I now have a Premier Artist birch mid range kit that I love the sound of and a Premier Signia Marquis that I found used that is deafeningly loud and sounds brilliant. I consider Premier drummers as Premier brothers,since here in Canada so few drummer like Premier for some reason. There is more to drums than DW cheers P :)
Hi Phillip, thank you for the kind words, I create these pages for my own amusement but it's nice to know others enjoy the site. You're right that there's more to drums than DW, and I'm aware Premiers are a rare sight across the pond in Canada and the USA, you obviously dare to be different :o) I'm very envious of your Signia Marquis, if I had the money and space for just one other kit it would be a Signia of some description, I've never even played one, but they're just gorgeous kits!!

Hi! Nice website and cool Premier projects, have you done any Ludwig projects? (I'm interested in Ludwig/WFL drums)
Thanks Marcus. I've only had Premier, and a few other Brit makes. Easier (and cheaper!) to find and get parts for. I like all drums though, Luddy wise I have to say I'm occasionally tempted to get a nice old 400 or Acrolite :o)

Hi, I noticed that you have a Ajax (b and h) snare drum. Could you give me any guidaince to restoration. Also, what youd value it at?
My Ajax luckily didn't need any more than T-cutting the dull wrap. But if you need help with restoring I'd advise joining a forum like the one on as there are some helpful people who'd be glad to advise and possibly help with any parts. Value wise, they're old and somewhat collectible but not worth that much. I think I got 60-odd for mine, it was a nice drum but I sold it to buy more Prem gear :o)

Great site! I share the same addiction to anything Premier. I am fishing my first project with a set of "early" (English) Cabrias. I am trying not to feel guilty about making some modifications along the way. The results so far are very promising, however.
Sounds like a nice project Greg, the earlier Cabrias are soooo under-rated. For a 'budget' model they were excellent quality, much nicer than the later far eastern ones.

Hi. I recently bought a beautiful early seventies Beverley kit from Canada. The colour is aquamarine. I love this colour and I play gigs with my Olympic five piece kit, which colour is also aquamarine. I guess it's impossible today to get hold of simular wrapping? Regards Martin, oslo. Norway

Hi Bjorn. I'm guy, from Lisbon. I'm 34 and to play drums as well. I felt really identified with your words, about being a frustrated drummer & etc. Although I don't have a drumkit, when I look at yours I feel like drumming in it as well :) I can say that I also share your taste for good music and influences, so... I feel we have a lot in common. Keep on playing music and enjoy. It makes your soul shine *
