    Alli is the only over the counter FDA approved product on the market. Out of ALL the weight loss products at GNC it is the only one with approval. All the rest must be sold as dietary supplements since they are not approved and cannot prove their outrageous claims.

    Let's pretend any of these "thermogenic" diet pills really do what they say.

    The thermic effect of eating, digesting, and other food energy related functions only account for 10% of your total BMR (basal metabolic rate). So if you are fairly active a diet of 2000 calories per day is pretty reasonable for a maintenance diet. That means 200 calories go to thermic burn. Now let's say these wonderful diet pills increase your thermic burn by 50%. That is a huge change in any body function.

    So we have increased our caloric burn by??.... 100 calories per day! Or less than one pound per month. For anywhere from $40 to $200 a month. You can burn 100 calories a day just drinking 100 oz of ice cold beverages!

    That is why these bogus and often dangerous pills cannot get FDA approval. They simply cannot prove their outrageous claims with acceptable clinical evidence.

    Read the container and you will see each and every one of them says somewhere on the label it is a "dietary supplement'. Loopholes in the current laws allow peddlers to promote their products without accepted medical evidence to prove their outrageous claims.

    All this stuff is putting your liver and kidneys through a lot of unnecessary and potentially dangerous activity.

    Many spices like chili powder, different peppers, garlic powder, cinnamon and others cause an increase in the thermic affect of food. But come on, you can eat pennies per day of seasonings and get the same benefit as these diet pills.

    A healthy diet of whole unprocessed foods will give you much greater results.

    Possible side effects of most diet pills

    Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)

    Heart complications

    Jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes)

    Kidney problems

    Unexplained headaches and dizziness

    Excessive fatigue

    Loss of appetite

    Restlessness, anxiety

    Nausea, vomiting

    Seizures
