Ultimately, the best weight loss pills for you are going to depend on your own individual health status, metabolism, and weight loss diet goals. This site is dedicated to helping you understand the individual diet plans that are out there and the diet pills that work along with each of them. This should provide you with a good overview of which diet pills are appropriate for your total weight loss program.
I have no doubt at all that you are already very well aware that you should always strive to eat a healthy diet and to exercise regularly..
With that being said, there are certainly a lot of choices available to you as a dieter. No weight loss pill is likely to bring you very good results all by itself, and depending on your overarching weight loss program any single diet aid could turn out to be a great choice or a positively awful one. Essentially you want to try and find diet pills that work along the same philosophical lines as the diet itself. Because a diet requires faith.
In order to put yourself on a low fat diet, you have to believe that dietary fat is the cause of your extra weight, or at least that reducing dietary fat can correct the problem and induce quick weight loss. A low calorie diet requires a belief that the number of calories you eat must be smaller than the number of calories you use in order for weight loss to occur. A low carb diet requires a belief that the consumption of carbohydrates causes your body to store fat and that eating fewer carbs will cause your body to burn the fat that it has stored. It’s all about what you believe.
Weight loss pills are also about belief. A diet pill that suppresses your appetite will only be useful to you if you believe that your weight problem is being caused by overeating. A supplement that blocks the absorption of fat or carbohydrates requires a belief that one of those substances is the cause of your weight gain. A diet pill that promises to boost your metabolism is only as good as the theory that a slow metabolism is the culprit.
I have a hunch that different types of diets—and also different types of diet pills—work for different types of people. I couldn’t tell you what the differences are, precisely, but I know that different people often get very different results from following the same dietary regimen. For example, I know a number of people who have a great time on a vegetarian diet. I tried a vegetarian diet and felt absolutely miserable! I couldn’t think clearly, I felt nervous and jittery, I slept poorly. But these folks do the same thing and experience wonderful results. For me, nothing beats a low carb lifestyle. I eat less than 50 grams of carbs every day (when I can help it), and in return I get to be my ideal weight, look and feel healthy, sleep great, and feel mentally sharp.
It’s like I said: different diet programs and supplements just seem to work better for different people. Unfortunately, that definitely doesn’t make your job easy. You have to sort through all the constantly growing heaps of information spewed out by proponents of every diet out there and all the best weight loss pills under the sun, including a lot of worthwhile but often contradictory information from physicians and scientists, and a lot of what seems like information but really turns out to be a sales pitch.
I’ll make you a promise on this site: I won’t give you any sales pitches. I’m going to do my best to give you the straight dope on every weight loss pill I can find without pulling any punches. That means that a lot of time I’m going to have to tell you that I just don’t know how a particular supplement is working, or even that nobody knows how it’s supposed to work. I may have to tell you that there’s no reason a given diet pill should work at all but somehow it seems to, or that there is every reason that it should work but for some reason no one sees any results.
For each diet pill I’m going to talk about the science behind it and the experiences that people are having with it, so that you can make your own, informed decisions. I am not a medical doctor, and you should not do anything that this site may seem to be telling you to do without first speaking to your own doctor. But I will do the footwork for you of going through all the scientific papers I can find and also the as many user reviews as I can find for each individual diet pill, and compile them all here for you for free, because I want to see you succeed on your weight loss program and find the best weight loss pills for you.
So here are the general categories of diet pills based on, as I explained, the types of diet plans that they are well-suited to. I’ll do my best to help you try and figure out whether each diet pill is likely to work for you based on your nutritional approach and weight loss goals.
- Tonalin CLA
- Garcinia Cambogia
- Sea Kelp
- Chitosan (citrimax) – Not recommended due to lack of evidence
- alli – not recommended due to awful side effects

Now get serious about your diet!
I hope that you have found this information useful in understanding the way that different diet programs work, and in selecting weight loss pills and supplements which can aid your chosen diet program.
