Can weight loss pills work?

Weight loss pills work!

But, there are things you should consider.

With so many marketing lies about magic weight loss pills.

And more and more customers feeling they have been duped.

Many are turned off about buying weight loss supplements.

Many more are left asking, “can weight loss pills work?”

I assure you that there are weight loss pills that work. 

The following are weight loss pills that worked for me and some of my friends.

Weight loss pills that work

can weight loss pills work?

These are the weight loss pills I know that work from experience. Moreover, these weight loss pills were taken by family and close friends. So, I’ve seen firsthand the effects of these drugs and supplements.


Okay, let’s start with a non-natural drug that can help suppress appetite and boost energy— Duromine.

I’ve seen how this weight loss pill made my roommate turn into an Energizer bunny who hardly ate.

Upon taking the Duromine tablet, she would skip meals and constantly cleaning the house. 

I’m not lying as she is a clean freak. Duromine most likely heightened her OCD.

There were issues with her not sleeping at night or waking up in the wee hours of the morning. 

One morning she woke everyone up at 6 AM with the sound of the vacuum cleaner!

Shvvooooooooooooooo… Schchchsch… voooooooooooooooooooooooooo… sch scchvo…

Within three months, she has lost 10 kilograms.

I’d say it’s very effective.

However, there are common side-effects when it comes to Duromine. The following are just some of them:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Irregular or fast heartbeat
  • Diarrhea, vomiting
  • Anxiety, nervousness, restlessness
  • Feelings of extreme happiness
  • Taste disturbance
  • Headache
  • Frequent urination
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Skin rash
  • Swelling of the face

Green coffee extract

The green coffee extract has been under my radar until I reviewed one weight loss supplement. 

One of the ingredients listed seemed promising, and I decided to try. 

To my surprise, it didn’t work as well as I would have liked.

After reading up on supplements, I realized that not all are created equal.

Not all supplements are created equal

Some manufacturers skimp on ingredients making the supplement weak and ineffective.

In fact,  some claim to hold GMP certificate mixing ingredients in their garage.

Now, you probably think, why even bother? Why buy weight loss supplements if you’re not sure whether they work or not?

Since there are numerous reports of tainted supplements, the FDA cracked down on would-be manufacturers and took out thousands of harmful supplements on the market. 

The campaign made manufacturers go to extreme lengths to stay on the FDA’s good side. Otherwise, the loss of millions in monetary value ensues.

There are dangers of supplements, but the following are question to ask to help you decide where to buy safe and effective supplements:

  • Are they GMP-certified?
  • Do they manufacture in the US?
  • Is the manufacturer in the FDA registry?
  • Can they prove their certification?

So, look for distributors who manufacture in a GMP-certified facility, FDA-registered, and located in the US. 

Now, anyone can put a label or text on their supplement bottle or website. How can you be sure it’s true?

You can ask for some proof. Distributors and manufacturers can provide you with a document as proof. 

Sick of the BS

I never realized that there are many underhanded activities in the supplement industry that may put our health at risk. 

People I know, family and friends, including me, take supplements. You can imagine the horror I felt when I found out.

Eventually, I decided to make my own supplements. 

One of the supplements is one aptly named Green Coffee 50 GCA.

Containing the powerful chlorogenic acid that gives coffee its super benefits that suppress appetite and help you focus.

Green coffee extract for weight loss

After three weeks of the Green Coffee 50 GCA, I lost 6.6 pounds.

My experience with the Green Coffee 50 GCA is different from the other supplements I have tried in the past. 

I didn’t have any second servings. My cravings for snacks dwindled. And, I didn’t feel hungry all the time. 

Green coffee extract works by suppressing the appetite and forcing you to eat less. 

A 2019 collaborative study of green coffee supplementation resulted in a lower body mass index. The study concluded that it supports the use of green coffee to help reduce obesity.

Green coffee extract for cholesterol

There are also several reasons why you should take green coffee other than to lose weight. One of them is to reduce total cholesterol. 

I’ve always had a cholesterol problem. It has gone as high as 10.9 mmol/L. The normal range for cholesterol is less than 5.2 mmol/L, according to the Center for Disease Control.

I’ve been taking Green Coffee 50 GCA for more than three months, and I’m happy to report that my cholesterol has gone down to 8.72!

It’s great to find a natural alternative to statins. 

You’re probably saying, “yeah, yeah.” That I just want to sell you stuff. 

Here’s irrefutable proof that green coffee helps reducing cholesterol levels.

A report in 2020 gathering all the studies on green coffee extract was published. After much research and reviews, the investigation concluded.

The green coffee extract reduced blood sugar levels and total cholesterol significantly.

Natural sleep aid for weight loss

When it comes to losing weight and keeping belly fat at bay, sleep is vital. 

My partner used to think that having no sleep is excellent for weight loss. 

Somehow she thinks feeling tired and lethargic equals losing weight.

However, that’s not the case. When you’re sleep-deprived, your hunger hormone called ghrelin increases.

When your ghrelin is high, it tells your brain that you’re hungry.

Moreover, lack of sleep can also decrease your leptin which is also a part of the appetite hormone. 

Leptin tells your brain to stop eating. However, when you have less leptin, your brain won’t get the message.

If you’ve been doing your best to diet and exercise while taking a slew of weight loss pills, and you’re still not losing weight? Perhaps take a look at your sleeping pattern. 

The amount of sleep that is considered normal is seven to eight hours. 

Any less or more can cause weight gain and the dreaded belly fat.

In a 2010 study, participants who slept less than 5 hours gained more body mass than those who slept 6 to 7 hours. 

Another interesting number is people who slept more than 8 hours also gained body mass.

Therefore, a natural sleeping aid may help you lose weight.

Natural supplement for sleep – Dream

Our natural supplement for sleep, Dream, contains natural ingredients proven to help with catching more zZz. 

I had problems with sleep and fixed it with a costly sleep supplement. I spent thousands to get a much-needed rest. It was worth it.

But since I’m not as rich as I would like, I can’t keep spending on expensive things.

Instead, I created a sleep supplement that is more affordable but just as powerful as the expensive sleeping aids on the market. 

I know many suffer from lack of sleep and are sleep deprived for so long.

And that the only thing that can get them through the next day is buying expensive sleep supplements. 

Those days are gone as Dream is less than half the price of the best sleep aid on the market. 

The Dream formula is based on years of scientific research and human trials. Furthermore, we manufacture in a GMP-certified and FDA-registered facility located in the US. 







I’m sorry to say that I haven’t had a good experience with others. And, I’ve had many.

I was going to mention turmeric, but it didn’t do anything for my weight. 

However, there is numerous research about turmeric reducing obesity. 

The problem is that the studies on turmeric and weight loss were done on obese individuals.

If you’re mildly overweight, you may not see weight loss results from taking turmeric. That’s what happened to me as I’m only 2 kilograms overweight according to CDC

Look, you can take drugs, but there are many adverse effects, as addressed above.

Avoid the nasties by going the natural route. 

As we get older, natural supplements become a godsend to help with vitamin deficiencies and as a preventative measure against diseases. 

Before rushing and stocking up on supplements, you need to know the dangers of supplements.

Doing so can help you make proper choices of where to buy from and prevent yourself from potential health risks.
