Dear Neil
I am not in favour of any diet pills or potions because they all have potential side-effects (users may develop deficiencies, diarrhoea, bloating, high-protein shakes etc can cause kidney damage, etc). I firmly believe that most of these products also do not sustain long-term weight loss, which is what a dieter desires. The moment one stops taking them, your weight will shoot up again and you can land up in the vicious cycle of 'Yo-Yo dieting'. You will also notice that these products are usually combined with a very-low-energy diet, which is what makes the fat disappear!
The fat burn products will probably work best if they are used in conjunction with a very intensive exercise programme as some of these ingredients such as L-carnitine mobilise free fatty acids which are used as fuel by top athletes. Just doing moderate exercise will probably not give the desired result.
