    OK, so down the high streey by where i live today i stopped at a newsagents and saw in the windows these adverts for herbal remedy pills!.

    There was a "slim fast" one...which increases energy and increases weight loss.
    Another was an "energy pill"...speeds up metabolic activity so you can party all night, like a rockstar.

    And each pack is 1.99 woo!
    But come on, from a dodgy looking newsagents. do people actually buy them, do they even do anything?

    I was just like :eek: what on earth...

    Anyone seen them before

    I've known of a few people who use them, but they're brands such as "adios" which supposedly aid weight loss. Personally I think it's just another thing someone can blame failing on, if/when it happens. "Oh my diet didn't work.. stupid pills".

    I don't know if they have any effect, but even if they do, it would make no difference unless the person was willing to eat healthily and start excercising to lose weight.. which then means there is no need for the pills..

    if it costs 1.99 i doubt it does anything

    however for 1.99 its a really cheap placebo which can be just as good so go for it
