Are There Any Supplements That Can Change My Metabolism And/Or Help Me Lose Weight?

Question: Are there any supplements that can change my metabolism and/or help me lose weight?

Answer: The world of weight-loss supplements is one that we feel very strongly about. There are so many prods out there being sold to people that have no approval from the FDA, have no tested safety or efficacy. And it's a huge industry that we feel people are really wasting their money on. There's no real substitute for taking charge of your health and eating more healthfully, exercising more healthfully.

There are a few approved medications that your physicians can prescribe for helping with weight loss. But most of these metabolism boosters and fat burners and so forth are really just being sold to the unsuspecting public and we recommend that you save your money.
