Diet Pills?

OK so I know there is no magic pill out there that just causes you to lose weight. I do believe though that there are some pills that if you eat healthy and exercise while taking it you may lose weight faster than just diet and exercise alone. So I've been seeing ads all over the internet for the newest diet pill combo of garcinia cambogia and green coffee bean extracts. So my question is, has anyone actually tried this? Does it actually work?

 I think Garcina Cambogia helped me get started on my weight loss. Drinking  Green tea helps too. I lost over 100lbs with eating healthy and exercise.

I haven't done pills.  I started weighing and measuring my food and that helped me a lot.  I never realized my portions were so off.  I just drink more water and cut out soda.

I tried that garcenia but it didn't work for me. Dieting didn't work either. Now I'm just eating healthier and cut out sweets. Working so far.

People start taking supplements as well as drinking more water, eating better and exercising (things they were not doing before), but then giving all the credit to the supplement.

I don't do diet pills. They really aren't regulated very well at all, from what I have seen and read.

I would start by just making changes to your diet and exercise routine to see where that gets you, but that's just my opinion.

There are better gardenia than others. Everyone is different. I Too Changed my eating habits to eating healthy. (Clean eating) Diets don't work. You have to make it a lifestyle.
