I've had successful weight loss while taking this pill, but don't expect to lose much weight with this pill alone. Combine it with trying to eat better and exercise more. Part of why I like it is because it suppresses my appetite, which is nice. It's more affordable than most of the other supplements like it, and the only other thing added to it is green tea, which is also good for weight loss. It also doesn't have any added caffeine, which is something a lot of cheap diet pills add.
