In brief: Just eat right

Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited.
This includes any flour product.. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and just enough protein.

In brief: Weight loss

The key to weight loss is not a pill; it is reduced caloric intake (especially sugars & starches) & increased caloric use (=exercise).
Controlling portions, avoiding unhealthful snack & fast foods & sugary drinks reduce calorie intake. Walking, swimming, pool aerobics, activities involving large groups of muscles burn off extra calories. These measures work long term.
