I wouldn't recommend using ANY products to help lose weight, other than health food, portion control and exercise.
Please be aware that a lot of supplements aren't properly monitored and many are imported with some unknown things in them - some of which have been known to be harmful. ALSO, even common OTC supplements can cause problems. As an example, Omega-3 Fish Oil supplements seems pretty innocent, BUT there are times when a person shouldn't take them. They can interact with some common medications, and some of those interactions can be serious. If a person gets too much calcium in their diet, THAT can cause problems, too, and taking it within a couple hours either side of certain medications can cause problems.
I guess what I am saying is, if you are planning on taking anything, even OTC supplements, talk with your Dr first to determine if you really need them, or they are are contra-indicated.
As far as 'diets' are concerned, this journey isn't a diet. It is merely a healthy lifestyle, and the best way to go about that is to start with baby steps. Just change one or two things to start with, and allow your mind/body to get used to those changes before adding something else to the mix. This isn't about a quick fix, so don't expect or aim for fast changes. That generally causes a person to either fall off the wagon because of deprivation or boredom, OR when you reach your goal, you go back to eating as you were before you started this journey. My maxim is "Do it once and do it right"
