Weight Loss Pills: What Works?

What weight loss supplements are safe?

You want to lose weight—and fast. You’re willing to try almost any weight loss product promising a miracle, but will it work? And more importantly, is it safe?

FTC cracks down on false weight loss claims

Looks like the Federal Trade Commission is cracking down on companies hawking weight loss products with bogus claims and here’s what’s happening right now.

Products that the FTC says are making false claims include Sensa and a “slimming” body cream by L’Occitane. The FTC is also working to get consumers their money back for purchasing such products and is going to urge the companies to stop the false advertising.

Some common false claims:

  • Eat whatever you want and still lose weight
  • No diet or exercise required
  • Just take this pill and you’ll lose weight

Where’s the miracle?

“The chances of being successful at substantial weight loss just by sprinkling something on your food, rubbing creams on your body or just using a supplement, well, they’re slim to none” — Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection

There are no miracle weight loss pills, no matter what those companies try to get you to believe. Buying these supplements from unscrupulous sources online without a doctor’s supervision is dangerous. Not only do they not work—they could cause you serious harm or even death.

The only legal (and legitimate) weight loss medications are those approved by the FDA, and are only available by prescription. These include Phentermine, Phendimetrizine, Qsymia, Belviq … See complete list: FDA Approved Medical Weight Loss Pills

Your best option is to work with a medical weight loss doctor who can advise you safely on what your body needs in order to lose weight.
