HOWEVER, many are looking for a ‘quick fix’, not realizing that after the latest diet pill works- if it does, they will go right back to where they were, simply because they failed to change their eating habits while on the ‘miracle’ pill. These diet aids- when they work- are perfect to help you achieve your goal, but in order to avoid the yo-yo dieting trap, you must examine your diet, find the problems in it and fix it in order to be truly successful.

There are a great many products on the market that beg you to give them a try. They claim to help you lose lots of weight- often quickly, keep it off- on and on! Of course, the product they want you to try and then buy month after month, puts money in their pocket while not doing you much good at all, if any. Here are ten examples- RIGHT SIZE SMOOTHIES that contain, among other things, Fructose and Canola Oil- both very bad for you- especially if you have a weight problem! SENSA seems to be ok as far as ingredients, unless you want to avoid Maltodextrin, which many like to avoid- and we wonder about the way it is advertised to work. I believe it costs about $60. a month and for that money you can change a few brands, eat better and lose even more than they advertise. AF PLUS has the best ingredients, but the supplements we take contain these important and helpful things, so the money they want each month is better spent on different food choices and yummy snacks made with healthful ingredients. RASPBERRY KETONES is all raspberry and no doubt good for you, but we believe you would be far better off to use that money to get better supplements and fresh raspberries! HCG is a hormone produced in women by the placenta during pregnancy- Doctors say not to take it for diets. GARCINIA CAMBOGIA is one we have just completed our study on. The fruit itself is good, but many companies are playing with ingredients, giving you something that won’t work well for you, if at all, and running to the bank with your hard-earned money. Jenny Craig & NutriSystem are both companies that use very unhealthy ingredients, which means if you do lose- and many do- you may not be able to keep that loss without a real struggle that many find difficult if not impossible. Very similar to these companies, is ADVOCARE. This company has some success, but uses many unhealthy products.  SLIMQUICK is VERY expensive and uses mostly green tea which can be had for less with other companies. Also we only recommend 2 of the 5 products. LIPOZENE seems to be a good choice for some- pros & cons below.

Before we explain these in more detail below, we want to mention here that none of these products will melt away your fat.  Some of them work, but it is not by melting you, it is by reducing your hunger, causing you to eat less and therefore lose weight. They work best with a good healthy diet- not an unbalanced or crash diet, but something you can live with for life. If you are eating wrong for your body, take one of these diet aids, lose your excess weight, then go back to eating the way you did in the past, your excess weight will come back. The companies selling these diet aids rely on that. They want your business on and off for life. Even though many of these companies tell you what they believe you should eat while on their product, we haven’t found any that suggests healthy foods, but rather pretty much things you were probably eating that caused your weight gain in the first place. If you are serious about losing weight- and we believe you must be if you’re going to purchase any of these expensive diet aids- go to our EAT HEALTHY! page and follow that plan while you use your diet aid. You will not be hungry, you will enjoy all your foods because you choose what you eat, and best of all, you will become thin for life- no more diet aids needed!

SPEAKING OF DIET AIDS… I’ve completed my study of these things and have the answer I need for myself- would it work for you? I don’t know, since we’re all a bit different in how our bodies work and what they need. I am carbohydrate intolerant and since I realize many of my readers no doubt have the same problem, I will share here what is now helping me. The GREEN TEA suggested by my Naturopath is wonderful and has now become a part of my daily food supply, but I don’t try to drink the recommended amount, so I’m taking capsules. IC-5 is proving to be just what I need at this time- but in a few months I will drop it, since they use cassia rather than Ceylon cinnamon and get some Ceylon, but since it’s not a drug or diet gimmick, it really doesn’t matter to me at the moment. I’m so very glad for doctors and nutritionists who can pinpoint our problems and supply answers that work well for us!

A F plus-

Each capsule contains: Acai fruit extract, Green tea leaf extract, ginseng root extract, pomegranate fruit extract and amia fruit extract. This product is advertised as a ‘One-a-Day Natural Alternative for Enhanced Weight Loss and Energy‘. We got a bottle when we were first aware of it and noted that it did indeed contain wonderful and healthy ingredients, but not only did it not melt any fat, it did not decrease our hunger. If you are eating the right foods for your body, you will lose weight- so why pay a company for something that you don’t actually need? For real success, follow the suggestions on our EAT HEALTHY! page.

What’s In SENSA

Safe Ingredients for Natural Weight Loss. (Is there a clinical study to prove weight loss with this?)

SENSA® contains a patented blend of scented sprinkles – also known as Tastants – that are designed to help you feel full faster without changing the taste of your food. All ingredients in SENSA® are 100% FDA GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) and can be found in foods you commonly keep in your kitchen or pantry. So we need this, why? If it works for you, great, but we think it is most likely a scam.

Maltodextrin* is made from natural corn starch. It’s commonly found in cereals, canned fruits, salad dressings and instant pudding.  Tricalcium Phosphate is a calcium supplement commonly found in dairy products, candy and jams. Silica is essential for performing metabolic functions. Foods high in silica are leafy green vegetables, onions, rice, whole grains and barley. The chart below shows the benefits- zero calories and carbs. Question: Does it work? We didn’t try it, so we can’t say, but we doubt it.

RIGHT SIZE SMOOTHIES

INGREDIENTS: FRUCTOSE, CANOLA OIL COMPLEX [CANOLA OIL, CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, SODIUM CASEINATE (A MILK DERIVATIVE), DIPOTASSIUMPHOSPHATE, MONOAND DIGLYCERIDES, SILICON DIOXIDE (AN ANTICAKING AGENT)], SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, APPEMINE [RESISTANT MALTODEXTRIN (SOLUBLE DIETARY FIBER), GUARANA SEED EXTRACT, GREEN TEA EXTRACT, GINGER ROOT EXTRACT, CINNAMON BARK EXTRACT, CAYENNE PEPPER], INSTANT COFFEE, MINERAL BLEND [DICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, DIMAGNESIUM PHOSPHATE, DIPOTASSIUMPHOSPHATE, ZINC GLUCONATE, COPPER GLUCONATE, MANGANESE SULFATE, CHROMIUM PICOLINATE, SODIUM MOLYBDATE, SODIUM SELENITE], NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, CELLULOSE GUM, XANTHAN GUM, CARRAGEENAN, SILICON DIOXIDE (AN ANTICAKING AGENT), ACESULFAME POTASSIUM, VITAMIN BLEND [ASCORBIC ACID, dl-ALPHA-TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, NIACINAMIDE, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, d-CALCIUMPANTOTHENATE, PRYIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE, RIBOFLAVIN, THIAMIN MONONITRATE, FOLIC ACID, BIOTIN, PHYTONADIONE, CHOLECALCIFEROL (VITAMIN D3), CYANOCOBALMIN (VITAMIN B12)], SALT, SOY LECITHIN.               Contains Milk, Soy.

YIKES!! Not just unhealthy- look at all the words used that we don’t even recognize! I’m certainly not drinking this!

RASPBERRY KETONES

Many companies are trying to take advantage of this product, so buyer beware. We believe the best place to go if you really want to have this product is probably: http://www.aprovenproduct.com/products/view/raspberry Having shared that, the very best way to lose weight is to find how your body works, what it needs, and feed it that way. Your weight will take care of itself with a proper eating habit, no diet needed! See our EAT HEALTHY! page.

HCG

HCG is a hormone produced in women by the placenta during pregnancy. HCG is sold as a prescription drug approved by the Food & Drug Administration for various medical conditions including the treatment of female infertility (but not weight-loss). The diet that goes with it, requires a daily dosage of this hormone along with an obligation to eat a very low calorie diet of ONLY 500 CALORIES A DAY! I checked with both my Naturopath and Medical Doctor and they both told me the same thing- you eat 500 calories a day and of course you lose weight and it has nothing to do with the HCG. Neither of them think we should take HCG and I totally agree!

Jenny Craig & NutriSystem

Both companies prepare foods using sugar, dextrose, sucralose, fructose, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup,  bleached flour, canola, soybean oil, corn oil, margarine, soy protein, and preservatives, which is not a complete list, but we just couldn’t make ourselves check further to see what other unhealthy things might be lurking in those foods. Of all the helpful things you can do to lose weight, these are on the very top of our NO-NO- LIST!! For a plan you can follow with success, see our HEALTHY EATING- Quick ‘n Easy! blog.

Advocare

This company uses Independent Distributors, and offers a 24-Day Challenge. It has two phases and a number of products. The GOOD news- their products are chock full of wonderful and healthy ingredients. The BAD news- ingredients in those ‘healthy’ products also include among other things, sugar, sucralose, fructose, corn syrup, agave syrup, and several soy products. Yes, you might lose with this program, but unless you start our EAT HEALTHY! plan at some point, don’t expect lasting results. This is an expensive way to learn what our EAT HEALTHY article gives you- totally FREE- we sell nothing, only suggest good companies that will serve you well.

GARCINIA CAMBOGIA

So far we’ve learned that this is a fruit that can be of benefit, but many companies are playing with it in order to sell you something that won’t work for you, but brings them in a lot of money. Should you decide to get some, make sure it has at least 1500mg, 60% HCA, includes potassium, but NOTHING ELSE!! We have learned that many companies put calcium in it and that kills any effect the fruit has for you. After completing my study, I can recommend the one from Whole Body Research. The first one I tried did nothing for me at all (it had calcium in it), but this one definitely reduces hunger. I have learned, thanks to my Naturopath and by taking it myself, that there is no product that will just melt your fat. There are however, some good products that will take away hunger. That means you will eat less and your fat will begin to disappear. Eating right for your body will cause you to lose fat, but sometimes a boost is needed, either because you are anxious, or because you are slowly switching from bad for you foods to good for you foods. It is important for you to realize that taking a product to remove hunger only does just that. If you don’t change the foods you were eating while gaining, you will not keep the unwanted pounds off once you reach your goal and stop the diet aid. Diet aids should be just that, and not a lifelong way of controlling our weight. To discover the best way to eat for your body, not be hungry, lose excess weight and keep it off, read our article EAT HEALTHY! To Your Good Health!

SLIMQUICK

We did a complete study on this and found the following…

  1. Drink Mix– the ingredients include aspartame & sucralose, both a very big no-no. 
  2. Gummies– the ingredients include corn syrup & sugar, two big no-no’s.
  3. Caffeine Free– this one contains soy extract, not an ingredient we want.
  4. Regular strength– has some ‘ose’ things, but not sucralose which we think may be the worst of the offenders.
  5.  Extra strength– also has some ‘ose’ ingredients (not sucralose), but we don’t feel the need for the extra vitamins, so we chose this one for our study.

NEXT we checked the recommended diet. Not something we will use or recommend. They use low-fat dairy products, lots of egg whites, leaving out the healthy yolks, and a number of wheat products. INSTEAD, we will use our healthy eating plan and count carbs, staying at 60 or LESS per day as much as possible.

This product contains mostly Green Tea and my Naturopath once told me he drinks it every day for health, so I went to him for some answers. I was told that Green Tea does increase metabolism and is good for us in other ways as well- a good thing to include in our daily diet. I may get some in capsules rather than trying to drink it, but will now begin to include it in my diet.

I’ve started checking out companies that sell green tea in capsules and have been shocked by the very low cost compared to SLIMQUICK. I will no longer suggest people purchase this product, but shop around for a Green Tea that you like.

LIPOZENE

The manufacturers of this product say it is clinically proven to reduce body fat with just one ingredient, glucomannan. Of course it has been proven to aid in reducing, but it does not do the reducing. That happens because you eat less, not because this product begins eating your fat. We found the information below to be most helpful.

Glucomannan

According to the University of Michigan, glucomannan is a natural fiber that comes from the konjac root, a plant that grows in Asia. Glucomannan is a water-soluble fiber, meaning it dissolves in water and becomes soft and gel-like in your intestines. It is not broken down until it reaches the large intestine, helping you to feel full longer. The manufacturers of Lipozene maintain that this feeling of fullness will help you to decrease your food intake, and thus lose weight.

Glucomannan’s Effectiveness

Studies looking at glucomannan’s effectiveness as a weight loss treatment have shown mixed results. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center reports one double-blind placebo-controlled study of 20 women who were 20 percent over their ideal weight found that the women lost an average of 5.5 lbs. in eight weeks while taking glucomannan supplements. However, other studies have reported no weight loss as a result of taking glucomannan supplements.

Considerations

Most side effects of Lipozene are consistent with eating a lot of fiber, such as gas, bloating and diarrhea. Known adverse reactions to glucomannan supplements also include chest pain, vomiting and difficulty swallowing or breathing. Health Canada reports glucomannan tablets should be taken with at least eight oz. of water or fluid to prevent choking and blockage of your throat, esophagus and intestine. You may decide to simply add more soluble fiber to your diet as an alternative to Lipozene. Do this by eating more oat bran, beans, peas and fruit. 

Jeannie here– I would not have a problem trying this, because it is a natural ingredient product, but if you do get some, make sure you begin eating as we’ve laid out in our HEALTHY EATING- Quick ‘n Easy! blog. Otherwise, you may discover you are getting into yo-yo dieting, which of course companies depend on in order to keep you a customer for life. You can avoid that pitfall by learning how to eat in order NOT to gain back your losses!

*Maltodextrin– What is it- should we avoid it? 

I really like the article If you’re obsessed with reading labels, then you’ve probably come across the ingredient maltodextrin. Sounds like some type of sugar, but is it safe to eat? It will settle your mind to know that this common additive is an easily digestible carbohydrate made from rice, corn, or potato starch (celiacs, beware — it can also be derived from barley or wheat). It’s made by cooking down the starch, and then acid and/or enzymes break the starch down even further.

Maltodextrin is a white powder often used in processed foods as a thickener or a filler since it’s fairly inexpensive, as well as in pharmaceuticals as a binding agent. You’ll find it in all the processed foods you should not be eating and since it contains fewer calories than sugar, it’s also found in sugar substitutes, such as Splenda or Equal, which are big no-no’s in good health eating.

HOWEVER– maltodextrin is usually used in such small amounts that it doesn’t have a significant impact in terms of the amount of protein, fat, carbohydrate, or fiber that it adds to foods. Although maltodextrin is processed and it’s not the healthiest thing to put in our bodies, at least we know it’s made from real food, not some nasty chemicals, so if you find it in one of your healthy foods, don’t be concerned. It’s okay.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH!
