  • 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.
  • 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!
  • I agree with the article, for most of us supplements are pointless.
  • I would rather do the healthy life change and not depend on quick fixes to reach my goals
  • 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!

    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-
    natural-forskolin-maximum-strength-rev
    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
  • We as a society want a fast solution that doesn't require work - no dieting, no exercise, just a quick solution to weight loss. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work that way. Taking a so called weight loss supplement does nothing to help us understand the reason behind our overeating, and many people who take these just end up gaining the weight back. And the health ramifications of some of these dangerous supplements just aren't worth it.

    This is a handy article. There are a lot of diet supplements out there that it is very overwhelming to choose which ones are good, fitting, and can really help lose weight.

    As a health buff myself, I am scared to try these supplement pills but then there are healthy/natural supplements that came to market and I was really anxious to know if this can work without any harsh side effects.

    I tried Bella Amp. The first pill supplement I used and I wish I have known/read this article so I would perfectly understand well the insane amp'd diet pills side effects before even trying one.

    Again, thanks for the share.
  • They put all these things out there to see how fast they can draw peoples to buy them. I don't like taking the pills the doctor give me. So I know what they have out there forget it.
  • I enjoyed reading this! Please do a follow up with all the new ones you see out there :)
  • Becky you really do a great job on researching these types of articles..
