  • 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..
  • Has anyone lost weight on SENSA a diet product out there
  • I am very glad I read this, I am not a huge believer in the "diet pills" but I do take some supplements. and I am glad that the one I take they said they did fot find to be hurtful
    I have take CLA I think it has helped I still work out and eat right which is the number one thing to help with weight loss
  • I agree these remedies are misleading and just a tactic to get money (as is most any other product on tv) However to say that any one of them is false, misleading and deceptive simply because it lacks scientific substantiation is a almost as bad as the vendors saying it works without the scientific substantiation. It would be better said that substantial research has not been made to determine the extent of the effects of the product.

    Every prescribed medication, antibiotic, immunization or any other treatment, including Cancer treatments, started out without scientific substantiation yet they were not false and continue to be used until they are proven otherwise. (Yes i know there are others out there that do not trust those remedies either)

    Let me just state, I think it is dangerous to to take anything without proper research. And I don't endorse any of these product or believe that they work.
  • ive been on Phentermine 37.5 for just over a month now and have not had any problems. in fact i lost 8lbs during that month . while i take this medicine as an apetite suppressant i am learning to pay attention to when im full and watch my caloric intake. i think its very helpful! i love it!

    i just started a weight loss pill to help me control my hunger(s) in the evening is my hardest part. These pills seem to work for me so far. i agree with everyone, Just watch your calories,and the amount you eat, Which is hard for me so i hope i get ALOT of support here because i need it. Thank-You
  • Ive yet to find anything i comfortable with.
  • Bubba Smith-the retired football player and actor from those "Police Academy" movies died as a result of ingesting too many diet pills at once. He was found in his home. A terrible cost to pay just to lose weight.

    I've been on that supplement roller coaster and have experienced many of the side effects. I'm starting over this year; hopefully to a healthier new me.
  • Isn't it amazing what we will fork out for diet-pills? We put more effort into earning that money than we'd have to spend on the work-out that would get us the same effect. And most of the time the exercise isn't half as dreary as we think, it's just getting up and getting out our exercise stuff that's so hard to do.

    Thanks for the article! I doubt I'd ever really buy diet pills because there are a hundred things I'd rather spend my money on. But the ads _are_ tempting (well, a lot of experts are paid good money to make them so) and it's good to be reminded that it's all a hoax.

    It would be nice to see some research on Qivana. Thirty-two years of scientific research for re-setting your metabolism can't be all bad and all natural too!
  • I've tried the majority of these "miracles", and am now back to what I know works...calorie counting and exercise! Changes for a lifetime.
  • It is truly sad that there is so much crap out there. And it's sadder that people buy the stuff. As was written in the SP article, many of these so-called "supplements" are dangerous.

    And Valentine_13, I loved your comment about HCG, it's a crock. When I first heard of it I was floored that anyone would actually do this diet. Sad, very sad.
  • What a great article to help everyone understand the many false claims about these products.
  • But people get rich on these false claims!!! Money, money, money!!!
