In brief: HCG
Some weight loss centers are using HCG injections which is showing promise and is reasonably safe - there are certain conditions where this is inappropriate.

The best way to lose weight is diet & exercise.
You should: 1) how many calories you take in daily & work on eating healthier food 2) start a manageable, consistent workout regiment (exercise 30-45 min/day for 4 days/week) 3) sleep 7-8 hrs/day. Supplements alone don't result in sustainable weight loss. Some supplements include Alli and chitosan. Pills always have the possibility of side effects.

Increase your physical activity by 30 minutes a day, and decrease your calorie intake by 25% and you should lose weight.
