There is probably one near you, and if there isn't there are always 'cyber clinics' and countless dubious websites dangerously selling drugs like Phentermine 'with no need for a prescription'.
Last year, Anne Withers, 47, had an interview for a receptionist job at a diet clinic in Birmingham and was disturbed by the experience.
'I'd tried loads of diets and although I knew deep down that healthy eating and exercise were the safest way to lose weight, I also knew that would take time,' says Jackie.
'Because I got the pills from a so-called clinic, I wrongly assumed they were safe.' Although she lost 6st over two years on the pills, it came at a disturbing price.
One quick search on the internet, however, lists hundreds of them, with one of the big chain clinics boasting 33 branches alone.
'I couldn't open my eyes or lift my head up and my mum says I was talking utter nonsense. 'Doctors took one look at me and assumed I'd taken recreational drugs, something I would never do.It seemed so easy and so safe.' But within hours of taking the first pill, Louise developed flu-like symptoms - a heavy head and aching limbs.Terrifyingly, three days later she became delirious and suffered palpitations, double vision and numbness in her arms and legs.Mum then gave them the packaging for the diet pills, at which point I was urgently attached to a heart monitor.It took two doses of sedatives to stabilise my erratic heart rate.' Chillingly, the medical team said that if Louise's mum had not taken her to hospital, she would almost certainly have suffered a heart attack that night.
