  2. Tierra Charnea on December 8, 2021 at 2:12 pm

    I don’t like how they both cut her off..

  3. Charley Vega on December 8, 2021 at 2:12 pm

    Well why did he take 8…you know you fucked up right. Next time take 1

  4. Elia Rizk on December 8, 2021 at 2:13 pm

    I think he thought taking 8 pills will get him instantly to 6% bodyfat

  5. A AA on December 8, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    He took 8 so… I mean… what happened to the folks that took it normally? Nothing? 🤷‍♂️

  6. Bloody nose girl Anonymous on December 8, 2021 at 2:16 pm

  7. BraytonTvStreams on December 8, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    Diet pills are healthy if you do it in a healthy way eight pills at once every single day is not healthy for your body it’s just like somebody eating junk food it’s not healthy but eating healthy with cards that protein vegetables and fruits that is healthy same thing with diet pills take one every week don’t do anything but take one a week because that when you will get side effects my friends.

  8. Averiii on December 8, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    But did he lose weight tho????🥴

    Jp: I feel disgusted that individuals have to even feel then need to go to these lengths. Only if society didn’t have so many overwhelming/ and strict standards people would be okay with themselves

  9. Antonio Dejesus on December 8, 2021 at 2:22 pm

    Long story short he did lose weight… in the form of an amputated leg

  10. Karno on December 8, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    This guy took 8 dnp and its the drugs fault? Yeah, and its guns fault for shooting murders too.

  11. Anthony Barratt on December 8, 2021 at 2:24 pm

    Read the instructions its always important to do that

  12. Vanessa Reyna on December 8, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    “Think twice before you take these things” nah chief more like “think twice before ignoring directions”

  13. Reginald Davis on December 8, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    8 pills?!! You’re just begging for trouble!!

  14. Helena Lovelock on December 8, 2021 at 2:28 pm


  15. kodiak River on December 8, 2021 at 2:28 pm

    8 cups of coffee kills anyone!!!!

  16. Anthony Basmadjian on December 8, 2021 at 2:28 pm

    Was he supposed to take 8 pills or just 1 and he was stupid?

  17. Taylor E on December 8, 2021 at 2:29 pm

    Tylenol can kill you if you take to many. Common sense people!

  18. Coco Mason on December 8, 2021 at 2:31 pm

    After 8 pills all at once?

  19. KNOWLEY1 on December 8, 2021 at 2:34 pm

    It’s not medicine 🙄🙄 or a diet pill 💊. People talking about it who haven’t got a clue 😂😂

  20. Jesus Ruiz on December 8, 2021 at 2:35 pm

    8 pills of anything is a bad idea

  21. ooopsy ant so shadry TV - on December 8, 2021 at 2:35 pm

    thats fked

  22. Vegan4life1 on December 8, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    With the word die in this pill is a red flag.

  23. Necko Smith on December 8, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    The doctor sounds extremely dumb "if 8 of them did that I garuntee 1 or 2 will" HE TOOK 8 STUPID THATS NOWHERE CLOSE TO ONE OR TWO 🧠🚫

  24. YeulYevon on December 8, 2021 at 2:38 pm

    Oh thats his fault

  25. Rango No Prato on December 8, 2021 at 2:39 pm


  26. Saundi Watson on December 8, 2021 at 2:42 pm

    The title of this video is misleading. DNP is not some OTC thermogenic. It’s a banned substance, this guy had to jump through some hoops to find it to purchase. No shit ODing on a banned substance is going to cause some problems.

  27. Fitness Wheel Skeeter on December 8, 2021 at 2:43 pm

    In the end he did lose the weight.

  28. A A on December 8, 2021 at 2:45 pm


  29. My Crochet and YT Updates on December 8, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    Nowadays i am listening a new medicine (Keto Guru) Can you give us some information about this medicine is it save or not

  30. Versace Mel on December 8, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    This sounds so stupid. How can you bash any medication 💊 if he overdosed?? He took 8 pills in one day.. He’s the dummy. There’s nothing to learn. Take 8 allergy pills in one day and you’ll be lucky to see another day without being hospitalized.. He overdosed and it’s 100% his fault..

  31. Shazana Khan on December 8, 2021 at 2:46 pm

    The weight literally melted inwards on his legs. Stupid

  32. B. Spra on December 8, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    Only 8?! Pu**y

  33. Dennis The Menace on December 8, 2021 at 2:51 pm

    I snort these babies, never had any problems. Now, the suppositories are a little different.

  34. Kas on December 8, 2021 at 2:52 pm

    No one accidentally takes 8 pills

  35. deitriche washington on December 8, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    Dude was an idiot Quick fit .Who does that?

  36. Tg on December 8, 2021 at 2:56 pm

    How can one accidentally take 8pills?

  37. vee on December 8, 2021 at 2:56 pm

    i take 4 types of pills everyday lol, prescribed iron pills, and growing pills.

  38. Lyna Claudia on December 8, 2021 at 2:57 pm

    I have no idea… Why though, isn’t scary having 8 pills at once? But yes we do learn something from here there’s always no shortcut for losing weight etc. Everything needs to work out slowly and eventually, you can achieve what you have been doing for a long time. Same logic to a baby has been taking soft food like porridge all day because the baby teeth haven’t grown yet and when the baby slowly growing up, the more varied types of food he/she can eat like noodles, rice, seafood, meat anything. I know it is difficult to cope with it but, if you believe in yourself you know what’s good for you. Pst, sorry for my informal English 😉

  39. Coco King on December 8, 2021 at 2:58 pm

    Wtf who tf do that

  40. Dan B on December 8, 2021 at 2:59 pm

    I only take one every month

  41. E Thor on December 8, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    He prob mixed them with steroids

  42. John Smith on December 8, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    He doesn’t mention Pro Card Bodybuilders cycle DNP in their cutting cycle regularly pre-contest. Along with other crazy things like Insulin, Thyroid hormones, HGH SERMs, SARMs, Antiaromatase, 5a-Reductase inhibitors, Nootropics, GHRH peptides, Lexatives, lasix, other diuretics, Amphetamines (for increased muscle contractility), EPO (vascularity) , a ton of vitamins for detox, and yes DNP. Many include Benzodiazepines and SSRIs for mental disorders (depression, rage, anxiety, impulsivity, new high risk sexual behaviors) developed under these intense drug regimens.

    DNP has been around for quite some time and used in artificial food coloring for the color yellow, like “Mac and cheese (obviously in minute amounts). It’s nothing new.

    DNP is not poisonous, although it needs to be respected and monitored very carefully. One must evaluate the risk/rewards on any pharmaceutical adjunct when applied to achieve a certain esthetic appearance.

    If used and dosed PROPERLY, it’s supposed to raise your temperature ONLY ONE degree. Basically giving yourself a non stop fever. Which over time causes lipolysis and the is speculation it increase the sensitivity to fat burning enzymes. Other drugs do this as well, just not to the extreme as DNP does.

    I’ve done DNP, and weight does gradually come off, but you are constantly hot and constantly uncomfortable, sweating. In my opinion, it wasn’t worth it. But, to the body dysmorphic and esthetically obsessed; nothing is too far.

    Remember, there’s no such thing as poison. Almost anything can be deadly in extreme overdoses. Anything.

    I’ll never forget what my Pathology attending said during my residency; the poison is in the DOSE. There’s no such thing as “poison.”

    The absolute safest bodybuilding cycle is 200mg Testosterone Enanthate or Cypionate (Tesoviron Depot) 100mg Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin). ALWAYS a 2-1 ratio. And MAYBE the occasional cycle of Oxandrolone (Anavar) Anything else, you’re playing with your life and rolling the dice.

    Remember EVERYTHING other than Testosterone, is synthetic Anabolic Steroids that are based on either Progesterone, Dihydrotestosterone (aka DHT), or Testosterone itself (either esterfied or free form). Testosterone itself is a “steroid” derived fromCholesterol (Chole – ”sterol”). Which is why Anorexics/Bulemics lose their Menstral Period; because they do not have sufficient amounts of cholesterol to convert into steroids, specifically Estradiol, estriol, estrone (estrogens) Progesterone, etc.

    The absolute worst 2 Steroids you could use is Trenbolone Acetate as is causes cardiac remodeling and LVH, which eventually shorts out the hearts electrical pathways between the hearts natural pacemakers due to the rapid and chaotic cardiac myocyte growth (the heart is a muscle too, by the way). Eventually leading to Sudden Cardiac Death, almost certainly due to Ventricular Fibrillation (aka VFIB).

    Frequent R on T PVCs and Q wave elongation are well documented with individuals abusing these Cardiotoxic anabolic compounds. Which are very well documented correlative factors in ventricular fibrillation aka sudden cardiac death.

    In rare occasions ventricular fibrillation has been reversed not only with electrical defibrillation but with the institution of dialysis in patient’s where hyperkalemia has been suspect. This is not rare because of the technology or the knowledge, but because such a condition is very time sensitive and often not able to be rendered before cardiac death occurred

    Theories for this abound including hyperkalemia due to the excessive potassium retention in the cardiac myocyte and sudden and dysthymic electrical depolarization of the sinus node caused by dramatic cardiac remodeling in the last ventricular wall. Of which, as a direct result of the electrical signals can no longer travel smoothly, symmetrically or equally as in normal cardiac myocardium with healthy Potassium channels in the myocyte

    Ultimately the real cause will never be completely known. realistically, it’s probably a combination of factors that gradually Kaskade into a deadly physiological condition that elicits ventricular fibrillation without warning .The fact remains, is this is a Documented,direct correlation two sudden cardiac death and people are dying as a result of using these compounds. it’s 100% preventable and avoidable.

    Before you try to say, it was just an MI (heart attack); when we crack these dead bodybuilders chests open and dissect the cardiac tissue; their arteries are almost ALWAYS squeaky clean. All 3, the RCoronary artery, LAanterior descending (aka the widow maker) , and LCircumflex. But the gross cardiac remodeling and LVH (Left Ventricular Wall Hypertrophy).

    Trenbolone, (Parabolan, Fina, Finaplix) Stanozolol (Winstrol), and Oxymetholone (Anadrol) are notorious for contributing to these very DEADLY cardiac side effects. But, they are also the most common due to rapid and dramatic “bodybuilder” type esthetic gains and cosmetic effects with marked increases in muscularity, decreases in body fat percentage, exponential strength increases and rapid vascularity increases and expansion; on a male’s appearance. Did I mention it’s deadly?

    Trenbolone was actually developed by the Germans and given to the Women’s Olympic Swim team, they won gold every year until the women started to draw attention with the prominent masculinization symptoms started to develop. It was later marketed as an actual drug called “Parabolan.” Which is now discontinued. It’s commonly given today to beef cows in pellet form called “Finaplix.”

    Oxymetheolone aka Anadrol is another strongly Androgenic progestin based synthetic Anabolic asteroid. It’s very harsh on liver enzymes and if taken too often, too long, and at too high of a dose; liver damage can occur. It’s the ONLY oral steroid positively associated with actual Liver Cancer (Lyle Alzado I think).

    In the US, Deca, Test, Anavar, and Anadrol are Schedule III controlled substances (DEA number required) all legally available to be prescribed for medical treatment. Most commonly used for Cancer and HIV patients experiencing wasting disorders.

    Generally speaking, I think “Prohibition” of anything never seems to work and usually does more harm than good. Criminalizing drug use is counter productive and often just contributes to the already exploding problem of broken families with incarcerated parents to fatherless children. It magnifies the socio-economic detriments of drug addiction in society. The answer certainly isn’t full OTC legalization either (California for example).

    The real answer is decriminalized drug use that is medically monitored (in a clinical setting with pharmaceutical grade drugs); coupled with mandatory counseling and optional job/trade/technical training. Let’s be honest, anyone with an addiction or narcotic dependency issue; is self medicating TRAUMA. That is very well documented and is undisputed.

    This exact model has been employed and has been VERY VERY successful, 2 countries come to mind off the top of my head; Canada and Portugal.

    I digress; sigh. Ugh, my old age is starting to show. If you insist on employing these powerful hormones and drugs to change your appearance cosmetically; It will still be unsafe. And, you will STILL be risking your life, but at least you’ll increase the chances of avoiding some catestrophic side effects commonly associated with the improper use and/or abuse of these drugs; or worse; death.

    Anyways, be careful out there boys and girls when playing Doctor with endocrinology you don’t understand. But, after ALL I’ve said, and you still are convinced to try it; please, please, educate yourself; at least, FIRST.

    Be safe and don’t listen to the media without verifying their claims first. They lie, and they lie a lot.

    Consult general physician before taking any medicine

  44. Ghost In The Darkness on December 8, 2021 at 3:02 pm

  45. ZEUS Raptis on December 8, 2021 at 3:02 pm

  49. Augustus Aetius on December 8, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    I doubt the bottle recommended 8 pills because diet pills are recommended in 1 or even max 2
    this guy went way above, don’t try to be your own expert follow what was recommended by the makers of it

  50. kodiak River on December 8, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    All in moderation…
