I am the queen of ordering diet whatever, I have a Masters in Weight Watchers and I am still over weight.
I have bought them all, even was on the Fen-Phen through a diet clinic. As you may know that was a drug that was yanked off the market and law suits are still pending as it was dangerous. I have tried the green tea tabs and many OTC and for me, none of them worked. Yup, I have tried the natural products from the nutrition stores too.
They all come with the disclaimer that you must cut your calorie intake and exercise.
IMHO, Weight Watchers is one of the best choices if you are looking to lose weight and exercise for increased energy.
Yes, I have even ordered the berri juices.............
I know we all want to believe in the testimonials on the sites but mostly it is about the money going into the pockets of the manufacturers.
I wish you luck as each person is different and I would advise letting your physician know you are adding this OTC med to your other meds............Please be safe.
You are important to all of us.

No I have not tried proactol, a fat burner right? But I have tried Alli..............twice with no luck because I do not follow a healthy diet or get the right amount of exercise.
Right now I am doing online WW, first but I know I am up against my AD so as I wean off the AD hopefully my own metabolism will kcik in and also I won't feel so tired.
Good Morning countingalways
Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum.
I am always leary of ordering the OTC magic weight loss diet meds as the ones I have bought come with a print out that says to be successful you must eat a well balanced diet and exercise.
I do not believe in a magical pill and taking them when you are on many Rx meds should be discussed first with your physician. Each person has the right to make this decision for themselves but please be careful on your choices. Also if the fat burners were magical no one would be struggling with their weight.......just my 2 cents.
Thank you for your input as it is appreciated.
