Diet and exercise: For the most part those diet products are a ripoff and don't really help with weight loss. Lifestyle changes along with calorie restriction and exercise is the only successful routine.I would skip the dietary additives and work on diet lifestyle changes and exercise.

Yes: The truth is that designating a weight-loss product as "for men" or "for women" is 99% advertising / marketing. The key to weight loss will always be calories-in and calories-out, the products work when combined with exercise and a low-calorie diet, a cheap vitamin-mineral tablet is probably more than enough, & lasting weight loss comes from lifestyle change. Glad you're doing this; good luck.
