My husband bought me those lipozene pills just to see if they would work. They are blue pills and you are instructed to take them 30 minutes before you eat with a full glass of water before each meal. When I took the first dose in the morning, I had to drink more water because it felt like the pills were caught in my throat. After I drank another full glass, I was fine. After the 30 minutes, I was not hungry at all. As a matter of fact, I didn't feel like eating Very much the entire day and I didn't take any more pills that day. The next day, it had the same effect but not as strong. I still did not feel very hungry, but it wasn't as bad as the day before. I did lose about 7 pounds the first week. I would say that they worked but I stopped using them because a video on Youtube stated that 1 or 2 ingredients were not very safe.
