I think it depends on the supplement.

Some appear to be gimmicks, that have no basis behind them to suggest they will work.
Others may be things like bulking products that make you feel more full when eating so prevent you eating so much, in which case that could help, at least while you're taking them, but then the problem arises when you stop taking them, there's no self-training happened to prevent you just going back to eating more, or to encourage healthier eating.

The best diets are the self willed diets where you eat a varied diet that is not constantly unhealthily full of fats and excess calories. Such a diet allows you to have 'naughty' stuff once in a while without it being something 'bad'.

Not really, not forever. Not healthily ....

The best way imho is to eat well, cook for yourself instead of buying ready food/drinks which usually contain lots of sugar or sugar substitutes.

Have a decent breakfast, so you won't feel like snacking later.

Don't have 'light' drinks or food, as they usually have sugar/substitutes instead of fat. You do need decent fat for your wellbeing, but definitely not sugar! Plus, they don't make you feel full, so you go on snacking.

A good start to thinking about true health is [url]20 Diet Myths – Busted | Zoe Harcombe[/url].

It's not easy what with all the advertising and 'big business' lurking behind every new health idea!
Lots of love from Annemieke.

I take it 'no' wasn't the answer you wanted?!!

Weight loss tablets became readily availble in chemists a few years ago. Since their introduction, have obesity rates declined?

The answer to weight loss, is to stop listening to the chattering mind ('go on, the chocolates in the cupboard, just one won't hurt you... it's in there you know!') and to listen and eat when you are PHYSICALLY hungry. Diet pills do not come into this healthy equation. Spend your money on lovely quality foods which you really savour and enjoy, rather than diet pills which make you do weird fattie poos!

Good job you did - here is a report from the FDA (a few years old) that highlights the risk of taking such things. Just eat properly!

Slim Xtreme Herbal Slimming Capsule: Undeclared Drug Ingredient

This product may also interact in life threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.

Natural suppliments

I think the only way to lose weight in a healthy method is to take high standard 100 % natural products.
I am collaborating with a nutritional doctor and we are working in a team to advice people how to lose weight. Our aim is not to help a person to lose weight, our aim is to improve the health standard of that person.
In our conception is that taking supplement for weight loss is not point to do that, because is whole body is contaminated with toxins, the supplement however good could be, they will not work.
Firstly, the person must to do DETOX programme when all toxins are eliminated from organism, then BALANCE program to do an equilibrium in the metabolic system and then BOOST and strength the immune system.
Secondly and finally, the person should continue with SLIMMING programme. The 100 % natural product will work best in one healthy/detoxed organism and they will do what we are expected to do.
This is the programme that we advice our patients that want to lose weight.

lost a lot of weight and stayed healthy.

In the short term their health may have been fine but what about the long term?

Many drugs have effects that may not be apparent till later in life.

I think no. I've read a lot about side effects, but still diet pills are helpful for those, who cannot get rid of extra pounds in different way. For example, if I'm not mistaken, people who cannot exercise because for some reasons can take diet pills to lose extra pounds. You can read this article [url]Adipex-P Side Effects - health dangers from Adipex[/url] if you are really interested in side effects. This article is about Adipex, popular diet pills nowadays. Almost every diet pills have the same side effects, I suppose.

Losing weight can dramatically improve your emotional and physical health, but it can be a slow process. So it’s no wonder that 15% of American adults use diet supplements to boost weight loss, opting for a range of products that claim to decrease appetite, block fat absorption, or increase metabolism.

Currently, most weight loss experts do not recommend many products marketed as weight loss supplements because of a lack of evidence. Also certain diet supplements, including ephedra, may cause heart attack and stroke. (Ephedra, also known as ma huang, was banned by the FDA in 2004 for sale in the U.S.)

However, there are some proven weight loss supplements available. Which weight loss supplements may be safe and helpful during a diet? Here’s a rundown on six products you can buy at most health food or drugstores that have some weight loss evidence behind them:

Calcium
Fiber
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
Green tea extract
Meal replacements
Orlistat, an over-the-counter weight loss drug

I cannot express my concern about weight loss drugs strongly enough. They are potentially fatal if misused, and even when you get the ones the doctor can prescribe legally you still have to do the sensible things like eating healthily and taking exercise

Weight loss drugs are addictive but do work

Weight loss supplements don;t work - and fats weight loss is NOT healthy

I am a pharmacist who spent many years working in nutritional support. I may not be saying what you want to hear - but I am telling you what you NEED to hear

Hi Abbey, I feel for you, it's difficult to stay in good shape these days, with all the temptations around you!
But it's really quite simple. The answer is not what you generally hear though. Slimming is a very profitable business, for some at least! A lot of what you hear and see in the shops and the media is just rich people trying to get more money out of you.

Are you very overweight?
Are you in a hurry?

The very first thing to remember is:
Sugar is bad for you in any form, also artificial sweeteners and fructose. For 146 reasons why sugar is bad for you, see [url]146 Reasons Why Sugar Is Ruining Your Health[/url].
Your long-term health is more important than a quick fix of any weight problem.

Otherwise:
Eat a good breakfast so you don't go snacking later.
Eat honest food, simple, not processed.
Simple home cooked meals and
lots of veg and fruit!

Don't be swayed by promises in ads. Keep your feet on the ground and listen to your own common sense!
Lots of love, Annemieke Wigmore.

Weight loss supplements can give you a "boost" in your weight loss program. It will have very little if you only rely on the supplement. Just like people taking protein shakes for working out, weight loss supplements should be considered an addition to your program.

My wife takes Garcinia Cambogia with her diet. The reason why she's giving it a try is because of the benefits in Garcinia that she cannot find elsewhere (or the actual fruit).

You can find supplements that will help you lose weight, but most of the time they have negative side effects. The only supplement I use any more is a natural cleansing product that I take when I get constipated or start feeling bloated. It is a very mild supplements not one that has you running to the bathroom every hour.

I avoid supplements that cause increases in heart rate. If I want my heart beating faster I go for a walk or climb on the exercise bike.

I wouldn't do weight loss supplements, but there are herbal teas that can speed up weight loss. Green tea, peppermint tea, yerba mate, all of these reduce appetite and speed up metabolism when you drink them between meals. Plus they have added health benefits too such as antioxidants.

I think it’s better to go on natural and healthy ways in losing weight than taking weight loss supplement. You can lose weight by doing some workout and eating healthy foods. Count your calories every day and exercise 4-5 times a week. Drink plenty of water every day. Green smoothie can also help to lose weight.

Running is the best exercise for loosing belly fat and thighs and hips. Also a balanced diet plan is essential for loosing weight.
I take Regenon diet pills, they are good in appetite control and help reducing weight fast.

You should do it naturally. That is the best way to lose weight than taking weight loss supplement. Going low carb is that can encourage weight loss. Limit the carbs (especially processed carbs like muffins and bagels) including a little fat. Drink plenty of water every day. Green tea can also help to lose weight.
