  • I believe that it would work for SOME people but because everybody's body is so different how can you be sure what works for Jane will work for Paul? Best and healthy for you way to go would be hard work. Healthy diet, exercise and staying mentally healthy.

  • I truly believe it does work. But, with any diet pills that have been on the market for a very short times (10 years or less), I wouldn't trust. Look at what happened with Phen-Fen. People had heart failure and heart attacks.

    Low-Carb 20-30 carbs per day and 30 minutes of exericise per day seems to work for alot of people that I know.

  • I started taking lipozene a month ago and honestly it hasn't done anything for me! I didn't order it i bought it at walmart because almost all info-mercials have hiiden fees and i should say you shouldn't waste your money but who knows it might work for you. I was so excited when i got the extra money to buy it and extremely dissapointed in it. Hope you have better luck.

  • Diet pills are not regulated by the FDA. That means that the company can make misleading statements and give fase information. Sometimes the company will advertise 'clinical studies' that does not mean the product has been scientifically tested.
    Another interesting fact - start reading the labels of diet pill bottles. Somewhere you will find in small print - use this product along with diet and exercise. We already know that to lose weight you need to diet and exercise.

  • Umm. it's crap. One of the main ingredients is just fiber (to make you feel full). That's it. It's not regulated by the FDA so they can say that it will make you crap rainbows and no one will stop them from advertising it. If you want to lose weight talk to your doctor and get a PRESCRIBED pill and that WILL make all the difference. But as with anything you will lose weight with moderate exercise and diet changes.. that's what they're betting on. If you watch the commercials it always says "results NOT typical" at the bottom. They're also being accused of fraudulant billing practices by the way.They charge a high amount for a pill that isn't worth it and you can buy pure Glucomannan (fiber) pills for MUCH less than that. Try Glucopsyll (brand name).

    Additionally they have it set to "auto-ship" so you have to opt out or they keep sending it and billing you for it every month.. similar to a book of the month club, or those CD clubs.

  • What about the Company Behind Lipozene?

    Obesity Research Institute LLC is also the makers of Propolene (a popular product on Fiberslim. Well, they were the makers of Propolene and Fiberslim. All of the complaints stem from 2004 to 2006. Lipozene is obviously their new pill, under a new name, so they can avoid the lambasting they received from consumers when countless consumers had their cards charged without authorization.

    The makers of Lipozene have had a run-in with the FTC as well, ordered to pay $1.5 million in consumer redress. It had to do primarily with Obesity Research Institute making outlandish claims about the results that consumers would have if they used their product. They also used the infomercial format almost exclusively.

  • The company who made leptoprin and the other one that made Trimspa are under lawsuits because of false advertisement. They made their pills out to be great aides in weight loss and neither of them work. Diet pill companies can and do lie. The ONLY thing I've heard that worked by people on CafeMom is Green Tea supplement OR a prescription phentermine from your doctor. It may, but don't be surprised if it doesn't. A lot of those pills don't do much if anything. Back before the US banned ephedra people really did lose weight, but STUPID people were abusing the pills and dying, so they banned it all together.

  • Oh and I KNOW for a fact that Propoline did NOT work AT ALL. My mom bought it.
    If you got it from that same company then it probably doesn't work.
    Do your research before buying diet pills!
