I'll have to disagree with everybody here. I have been taking these products since the first of April 2001. I have lost 64 pounds and I have lost a ton of inches. My waist has gone from a 48 to a 38! I have a brother who has been takeing them since the middle of March 2001. He has lost a total of 101 pounds since then. So do they work? I believe they do! These are the only products that truly have worked for me and they curb your appetite and you lose weight. Just my .02!
