For the most part I agree with what was stated in this article. I’m currently taking 2 supplements (one as a natural diuretic to help with my swelling rather than taking a prescription diuretic...it’s completely coincidental if it “aids” with weight loss; and the 2nd to assist with the weight loss, but it’s clearly stated on the bottle/box that it helps ALONGSIDE a healthy diet and activity program). There’s nothing “magical” about the “weight loss supplements” that I’m taking...they won’t work if I don’t maintain healthy eating habits and an exercise plan. Anything that claims that it’ll allow someone to miraculously lose weight WITHOUT making changes to their diet and activity is more than likely a fake (in my opinion). I’d LOVE to be able to take a “Quick-Fix” pill...but things like that don’t really exist outside of fantasy. Report
Thanks for sharing. Report

In 2006, I took a weight loss supplement (I honestly cannot remember which one) that was popular at the time. Within 90 days, I had an extreme health crisis with an unknown origin. Literally tested for everything under the sun, all the tests were negative. Dumbfounded, the doctors thought I may have lupus. I met with the specialist who finally said that I did not have lupus, but when I told him about the diet supplement, said I should not take it again. I have never had those symptoms again. Report
Tried a few and nothing not to mention their expensive. Too many people focus on losing weight instead of being healthy. Think I'll stick to eating better and moderate exercise! Report
I agree with the article, for most of us supplements are pointless. Report
I would rather do the healthy life change and not depend on quick fixes to reach my goals Report
These so-called weight loss supplements pills are FAKE. They do NOT work and do NOT hold any nutritional value whatsoever. Do yourselves a favor and STOP wasting your money on this fake ass junk! Report

I am over weight and it really stresses me when i go out and feels like all people around are staring at me like criticizing me secretly or am i just paranoid. So for my own benefits, i started being conscious what i eat and also looked online that can help me loss weight. I found this All Natural Forskolin Maximum Strength Review ( http://forskoliin.com/product-reviews/all-

iew/) and caught my interest to give it a try and it really helps me a lot i'm still using it now. I lose poundssss for just a month of using it. Report

I am trying to find out the amount of calories in the food I want to eat so I can figure how much food so I can set up to eat and stay in weight loss range

Maybe Ephedra was trouble to people who had trouble with high blood pressure and heart problems (though I don't know why they would take energy pills (and with caffeine?).

Any diet supplements with caffeine will cause problems. It did not make Ephedra work. It did the opposite actually.

Ephedra was NOT DANGEROUS. I personally knew NO ONE who had ANY side effects from it. It didn't make you not hungry. It helped your metabolism boost. WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS. It did not heal anything but, with exercise (etc) it really helped you maintain your weight. THIS is why it got removed by the government.

There are many prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs that harm people badly, today. Ephedra did not. wake up people! Report

MINDY681 on 3/14/2013 asked if anyone out there has tried SENSA. No one answered her. I have not tried it yet, but I admit that I am tempted. Out of all you dieters can this SENSA REALLY work? The cost for it is like $89-plus. I think about it a lot when my appetite gets the better of me. Report

Still it is best to stick to the basics and natural. These diet pills may be effective but not for long. Although there are some that are natural like Insane Amp'd. It worked with proper diet and exercise. Report
