It only helps if you take the sign that you feel full and eat less calories. If you take three large milkshakes each day because you are stressed you will still gain weight. Like all diet aids it is only an "aid" you need to make an effort to eat less and walk, exercise more. In this way it can help by making you feel full so that you will hopefully be able to eat less, more healthy food.
