    Are weight loss supplements, a safe method to lose weight?

    All supplements are some bad effects. You can eat some natural food and take some exercise to lose your weight.

    If you want to lose your weight you need to maintain a diet chart. This helps you keep a track of what you are eating.

    Take some  green vegetables that include fibre rich like broccoli, cabbage, collards, beans.

    Take Fibre rich fruits like avocado, banana, kiwi, orange and apples

    Eat some fat burning fruits like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. and drink lots of water.

      Thank you hmmrony13 for your answer and I do agree to it. Though, I have a doubt if banana has weight loss supplements. Drinking lots of water is always a healthier option and can definitely keep you away from obesity.

    I think it all depends on what type of supplements. There are some that are safe and some that are unsafe.

    Some safe supplements may include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, Omega-3s, and herbs. Vitamin B complex, greens/berries powder, and fish oil are great natural supplements that will help you with your weight loss efforts, along with a healthy menu plan and exercise.

    Though "stimulant" supplements may help you with weight loss, they can have a lot of side effects including rapid heart rate, nausea, mental instability, and more. They can be addictive as well. Research has shown that people will not lose weight as quickly after discontinuing its use and therefore feel the need to resume. Prolonged use of these stimulants can decline your thyroid function and even destroy your metabolism, making it even more difficult to lose weight in the future (if needed).

    I have a hub regarding this very subject if your interested: … ing-Agents

      thank you for your reply Abby. Your reply is convincing as whatever supplements you have discussed, even I have read a lot about them. Thanks again and your hub on thermogenic enhancers is quite educating. Love you for sharing it with me.

    No. Weight loss supplements do not have to be tested before they are open to the public. The government does not regulate them before they can be purchased. Anything can be in those supplements.

    I would say no for the most part. This is because manufacturers don't have to undergo any form of testing or prove efficacy of their products. They come with disclaimers for a very important reason. There have been cases of heart, liver, and other major organ damage due to ingredients that were intentionally and unintentionally put into supplements. Also, some supplements are simply made with inferior and/or dangerous products whether they are made in the US or imported from other countries. The actual ingredients do not have to be listed so please beware and educate yourself on these things. A fair number do not work and are not safe.

    Well, personally I am not in favor of these, so called, weight loss supplements. These are all marketing gimmicks. I just don't understand why people want to spend money on these useless products when they enjoy desired results via jogging and performing regular yoga.

    You'll see from the label "no therapeutic claim". You know what to do from there.

    Weight loss supplements is not the safiest method, but the fastest one. Well, it is said that they really help lose weight, I read a lot of positive reviews of people who were glad and satisfied by the results. But also people complain that with weight they also lose their health.
    As for me, I have never taken diet pills. They have a lot of side effects. For example, read here:
    This is what is written on the website:

    As we see, weight loss supplements are very harmful.
