Looked at some "diet supplements".  One thing that they seem to have in common is a little statement, usually in fine print, to the effect of "combined with a sensible diet and exercise".   Well.................DUH!   If you take some type of herbs, fine.  If you are doing it to "lose weight", you might just keep the $20, $30, $40 in your pocket and cut right to the "sensible diet and exercise" part.   I am not mentioning these things by name because I don't want to get into a big fight about this, but I'm really annoyed at the money that people waste everyday buying these things in the quest for the "magic bullet".     There is no magic bullet.  Your body just works in a particular way.  If you take a $40 a bottle herb and eat like a horse while you sit on your couch, you will continue to gain weight.  If you take the same pill and eat fewer calories per day than you burn, you will drop some weight.  The problem is, you'll also drop $40.  Don't fall into the trap.  The diet industry makes incredible amounts of money each year by preying on people's desire to be fit and healthy.  That was the reason that I started these postings.  Get in touch with what your body needs.  If you give it a chance, it will self-regulate, provided you are healthy.  Ease off on the caloric intake, ramp up the physical movement.....just a bit at a time, and you'll see results.   In this economic situation in our country, you don't need to buy a magic pill in order to eat a little less.   Even if such things DID work, do you want to be dependent upon some type of pill for the rest of your life in order to keep your weight down?  I don't think so.   Is it easy?  Nope.  But it is a simple equation.   Output of energy must exceed intake of food in order to lose some of your fat stores.
