I don't think you're going to get many recommendations for this type of supplement, as SparkPeople does not in any way encourage that kind of stuff. It's all about good nutrition and eating real food, and exercising-- not taking pills.
If you're not seeing the results you'd like... take a look at the types of food you're choosing. Are you tracking everything you eat, including things like catsup or salad dressing, or "just a bite" of this or that? Getting enough vegetables and fruit? Drinking enough water? Weight loss is around 80% what/ how much we eat. And while it sure seems like we can pack on the pounds practically overnight... it takes time and effort to lose them. Sort of really not fair at all. But that's the way it is.
And.... the less we have to lose, the slower it's going to come off. While someone with over 100 pounds to lose, can lose it at 2 lbs./week (at least, in the beginning)-- the closer we are to goal weight, the slower it comes off. It's just not possible to create a large enough calorie deficit to have that much of a loss.
The way I look at it, it gives you plenty of time to practice all the healthy habits that will help you KEEP the weight off. Lots of people can and do lose weight... but not that many actually keep it off. So by losing a little slower, you up your chances of maintaining the loss.
