dietary supplements

Has anyone had success with any of the new dietary supplements. I used to use Metabolife 356 and had great success with it until they banned ephedra from the market. I really am just looking for an appetite suppressant. Looking forward to hearing from you.

These scare me..
Do they work?
What are the risks?

I have just recently heard of an appetite supplement called Hoodia. I have it ordered at the GNC, cause they keep selling it out as soon as they get it in-if you type HOODIA into a search engine, you will find many sites about this plant from Africa. I have heard several testimonals of good results.

Hi Ladies.
I too have heard of the Hoodia plant and read many testimonials about it and also saw the 48 hours segment with Leslie Stahl regarding the plant, where she visited Africa and the Hoodia Plantation where she actually nibbled on a piece of the plant. She too said it suppressed her appetite. Anyways, I am told that the supplements containing this plant use it in different strengths so I am curious about this one you are buying from GNC, MsjReg. Please let me know how it works for you. But if you say that they cannot keep it on the shelf, maybe that means its working. I hope so. I had such great success with Met. 356 and was upset that they took it off the market. Personally, I think those who had contradictory results with Met. 356 were those who abused usage. Good Luck ladies.
