No: If you lose weight, it will be because of your other habits, and not these supplements. The only people pushing these treatments are the makers and seller of the supplements. Stop taking these, and take your saved money and get a health fitness membership. That would be a better buy for your money. Exercise and an appropriate diet will be the best to lose weight.
