Dear Miss P
They work in different ways - the drops and pills and potions usually contain pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine which is an appetite suppressant. This works for awhile and then requires large doses to achieve the same effect, thus these products can be addictive and they also have endless negative side-effects. Other programmes use liquid meal replacements like shakes, etc, to make the use cut down drastically on food intake - hence the weight loss. ALL these products and regimens also make people use a very-low-energy diet and it is usually the diet that makes them lose weight, not the pills and potions, so it is just as useful and much more sensible and cost effective to just use an energy-reduced diet and exercise to lose the weight. Such an approach costs much less both in monetary and health terms.

The only way to lose weight sucessfully and keep it off, is to eat healthly and excercise, there is unfortunately no quick fix to weight loss. You have to make realistic changes that you can stick to for life, that is the only way you will lose and maintain your weight loss. All these quick fix promises might work initially and most of the time it's a water loss and not "fat loss", but this does not teach you the ways of a healthy lifestyle. As soon as you stop taking these products and return to the way you once ate before, the kilos pile back on and often more than what you initially lost. It's a sad state of affairs, so many women get caught out by all these false promises and in the end, ruin their bodies. Rather approach weigh-less or weight-watchers as they are well known for their sucessful record of weight loss and teachings of a healthy lifestyle, without depriving yourself as well. Good Luck.
