Has anyone tried the new Jillian Michaels QuickStart Rapid weight loss program, Maximum strenght fat burner pills, or the Thincare international Jillian Michaels maximum strenght calorie control tablets, or the triple process body detox and clense. If so could you tell me is it safe and is it worth the money?

Hi Everyone,

I had to comment. 14 months ago I weight 175 ( I am 5'2, 28 years old, no babies). I gained about 30 pounds in grad school. I was always active in high school (varsity swim team, but as you all know college and grad school can easily put on the weight, replacing the gym with the library). Anyways, I did the 17 Day Diet and now I weight 120 pounds!!! I have kept it off. The 17 Day Diet is fantastic. Doing cardio intially for an hour so not good if you want to lose weight because your metabolism will sky rocket and you will be so hungry and want to eat everything. Follow the book, I stayed on Phase 1 for 2 months. I lost about 30 pounds in the first 4 months and then I became a vegan and lost another 20 pounds. It is all about portion controll, healthy eating (lost of fresh fruits and vegetables, avoid heavy salad dressing and cooking in oil, buy yourself a vegetable steamer!). Good luck to all of you out their. Find what works for you and don't give up. If you slip or fall off the wagon 1 day, don't worry. The next meal is a new meal. I slipped up all the time but I stayed patient and did not give up on myself. I am now training for a marathon and I have already ran a half marathon. Good luck, stay focused, stay positive. Also, at work people bring in goodies all the time, resist them! Don't be a people pleaser, it is ok to say NO, but is a nice way. You come first, your health comes first, and without your health you don't really have anything. You have to take care of yourself. Patience is key.

I personally haven't tried them, I'm interested in it though, my friend bought a botle I was looking over the ingrdiants and they look really organic I was noticing a lot of citrus type indrediants differnt types of orange substance I don't remember what exactly, my friend says who just started them says they make her energized and she doesnt have the need to eat so that seems to be how they work thats all i know

Yes? Welcome Yoyo-Effect. I bet she'll regain the lost weight very soon, like, in a few months. She can't take the pills forever and even if she does, the stimulating effect usually doesn't last, kind of like it is with caffeine. If she doesn't use the time to learn how to lose weight without such a crutch, pills won't be useful.

Well, piku, duh....no, they won't. Nothing will if you don't diet and/or exercise.

I used the product and initially lost a lot of size...not weight. The product gave me a lot of energy but the downside was that it made me very winded doing cardio exercises. I think the product increased my heart rate abnormally and being a former athlete am very sensitive to my breathing patterns when I lift, exercise, and run. I stopped taking the product before cardio and take later in the day. I now can breathe during cardio but I do not have the same results as far as size loss.
