Wow! I didn't know there were so many different products/pills/ways people are using to try to lose weight! I thought I would put my 2 cents in here too... I lost 50 lbs on the cookie diet. I lost it in 3 months and I've kept them off for almost 2 yrs now. There just are no short-cuts or tricks involved in weight loss. Eat fewer calories and you will lose. The hard part is that you really have to reduce the number of calories and normally most of us don't have the will-power to deal with the hunger. That's why I recommend a cookie diet. They are not pills. They are high fiber/protein/etc meal replacement food that elliminates hunger. Once you elliminate hunger, you can stay on a very low calorie diet and lose weight quickly. It's such a common sense thing! I lost my weight on the R&D Diet Cookie. I think they taste better and they are much cheaper. They are a small company and don't have all the bells and whistles that jack up the price. I also think they work better than the others. Good Luck Everyone! :D
