I bought a product  yacon syrup and weight loss pills.  It is  a  dr. Oz  commercialized product.  Is it safe to use?

Safe for Dr. Oz: Safe (and very good!) for dr. Oz, but not for you. Every weight loss program must be individualized; there is no single remedy that is good for everybody. Weight management is primarily in your head, not in your stomach; people often use food to gain gratification, not to satisfy hunger; and this is wrong. ...Read more

Do weight loss pills work in general?

Do weight loss pills work in general?

Can't rely on a pill: Over-the-counter diet pills decrease one's appetite a bit (they are related to stimulants). A person's desire to eat can be much stronger that a diet pill's power to decrease his appetite, so he will likely continue to eat too many calories. Also, diet pills don't increase one's desire to exercise. If something as simple as a diet pill actually worked, we would not have so much obesity in America. ...Read more
