Does raspberry ketones really aid in loosing weight?

Does raspberry ketones really aid in loosing weight?

No, not really: Diet supplements are a big industry but don't really work. One's desire to eat can be much stronger that a supplement's power to decrease his appetite (or "burn fat"), so he will likely continue to eat too many calories. Also, diet supplements don't increase one's desire to exercise. If something as simple as a diet supplement was effective, we would not have so much obesity today. ...Read more

Not by itself, no.: CB-! "weight gainer" will not help w/ weight gain. Get a check up to make sure there's no medical cause of or consequence to your low body weight. If you're otherwise healthy, start a regimen of weight training & adequate calorie intake (esp. protein & healthy fats).

Does hoodia help with losing weight?

Herbal supplements: Although some herbal supplements may work, the industry is not regulated the same way FDA approved medications are. One recent DNA study of herbal preparations showed that many don't contain what's on the label.

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
