In brief: Yes, but
first, the carb blocker doesn't work.
the fat blocker works but 1) the amount of weight lost with it is small 2) side effects are oil leaking out of your butt 3) it is more because it makes you not want to eat fat/fast foods than the actual fat blocked. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1775472781/devils-diet is a helpful source of info and entertaining.

They work but there are unpleasant side effects like flatulance, large fatty stools and vitamin deficiencies just few major side effects which makes it difficult to continue to take.
