Do you really think weight loss supplement are help in reducing weight?
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 20 Diet Myths – Busted | Zoe Harcombe.
It's not easy what with all the advertising and 'big business' lurking behind every new health idea!
Lots of love from Annemieke.
(I'm trying to think of a way to expand this, but the simple answer is NO!!!)
have you heard about lilliy? I don't even know if it is really legal...
do you have any information about it?
Thanks for the opinion guys. But the question still exists is weight supplements helpful in weight loss.
And the answer is ...... No!
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!
I do have a few friends that used something called slim xtreme, and they lost a lot of weight! i tried it for a few days but it made my heart race so i got scared and stopped
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
[UPDATED 05/26/2011] All lots of Slim Xtreme Herbal Slimming Capsule, 30 Capsules/Bottle, are being recalled. The products were sold and distributed nationwide via the internet and at the company’s headquarters in Hollywood, Florida.
ISSUE: FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that “Slim Xtreme Herbal Slimming Capsule” contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010 for safety reasons.

This product may also interact in life threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.
BACKGROUND: Slim Xtreme Herbal Slimming Capsule is marketed as a product for weight loss sold on various websites and distributed by Globe All Wellness.
RECOMMENDATION: Consumers should stop using this product immediately and throw it away. Consumers who have experienced any negative side effects should consult a health care professional as soon as possible.

Yes, i totally felt that there was something wrong with that, and i did not want to risk my health.
but a few friends of mine who took it lost a lot of weight with it.
it looked so easy and appealing but i ended up deciding that it was not the right thing to do.
When something looks easy and appealing, be on your guard!
Well, i don't know, maybe it might be ok for some people and bad for others. because as i said my friends were really happy with it, lost a lot of weight and stayed healthy.
but sure it is not worth the risk
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.
Few weeks ago iv started to cut down my calories intake.
This month iv applyed for a Halo membership card and today iv spend an hour swimming.
But to be honest iv been thinking about some suplements as well :/
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 I would like to have some advices
My name is Abbey. I try to eat healthy but it's very difficult for me to lose weight.
I would like find a solution to boost my weight loss.
Have you some tips, advices to give me?
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 146 Reasons Why Sugar Is Ruining Your Health.
Your long-term health is more important than a quick fix of any weight problem.
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.
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.
