I used them. I think they helped a little bit. When I was faithfully tracking my food, and faithfully exercising, and taking 7Keto, Relora, Forskolin and Saffron I saw a loss of about 2 lbs per week. I have however relaxed on all over the above. I'm tracking sometimes, exercising sometimes and taking the supplements sometimes. Good news is that I have not gained back any weight. The supplements are expensive so I don't know if I will continue them or not when i run out. I didn't have any unwelcome side effects. The Relora is supposed to calm you and if you are calm you don't stress eat. I think that works when I take it.
