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?

I have been taking Jillians maximum strength fat burner pills for a week, two pills at 7am and 2 pills at 12pm with a light lunch (salad and veges). I walk 1/2 to 1hr a day and have lost 2lbs. I have found that they definitely have lowered my hunger urges and when I do eat I get full faster. I have not experienced any side effects. I would recommend them of course nobody can lose weight with just a pill, exercise and healthy food choices and quanity are a MUST! Good Luck!

I'm happy to hear that you are exercising daily and choosing healthy foods...two "musts" to lose weight and maintain the weight loss over a long period of time. Let us know how you are doing...and keep up the good work!

I started the jillian michaels pills yesturday. Im trying to lose 10 pounds only. I took 2 of the calorie control pills and 2 of the fat burner pills in the morning. I had a rush of energy for about 5 hrs. I ate 3 times during them 5 hrs. Then took the same amount about 9 in a half hrs later and tried working out. Which was a huge mistake because I then felt short of breath, dizzy, nervous, parinoid, and shaky. I tried eating dinner but felt nauseated. I couldn't sleep I was parinoid thought I was going to die. For some odd reason I felt sorrow and even thought of suicide and demons were watching me. I know this sounds crazy but It's true. I woke up this morning with a spliting headache and i'm extremely tired. I didn't take anymore pills today, I'm wondering if I took to many? Should I start with only 1 pill twice a day? I've taken extacy once in my life and had a bad come down, I felt this same way with these pills and I think this pill triggered that affect again. Would somebody please give me some advice on the pills (not extacy)? I've learned my lesson on that already NEVER DO IT AGAIN! LOL

I loved the detox and cleanse ! I can only take the fat burners in the morning, though. I'm a coffee drinker but I had to stop because they have me wired all day. I like that they don't make you shaky like some other diet pills, they just give you great energy. If I did what the directions say and took them with my main meal also I'd never sleep ! I take the fat burner in the a.m. and do her 30 day shred workout everyday. It's fantastic ! I've lost 12 pounds in less than 3 weeks

I have started taking the cleanse to of course clean me out. I had a hard time deciding between Jillians or Quiktrim(you know the one Kim Kardashian promotes). The clerk actually told me Jillians was better because of the probiotics in it and Quiktrim doesn't have it. I do work out and I have started to eat a lot better with most food being organic. I have seen a difference no bloating-and my menstrual is just around the corner. I have lost 6lbs I was just at the doctors office last Wednesday and it said I weighed 165(I am only 5'6 so that's quite a bit-but I only wear size 6. So its mostly muscle-at least I hope). So its working for me. And yes a cleanse means you have to go to the bathroom quite often but its nothing out of the normal-I just took a 2 hour car trip and was fine.

Some diet pills work but their claims are Highly Exaggerated. Prescription ones actually DO WORK, but you need a prescription. There are also some new ones potentially coming to the public, Qnexa, Contrave and Lorcaserin... One a little later is Tesofensine

I just bought the calorie control tablets, and I took two 15 mins before my meal, I felt fine at first but a few hours later I felt quit weird, i was very jittery, my hands were shaking....for someone that drinks almost no caffeine, the pills are much to strong. Whether they work, im not sure yet, but im going to take one pill instead of the two recommended.

I used the Jillian Michaels' 14 day cleanse and burn and let me tell you, I didn't lose a pound. I run 5 miles 3 times a week, go to the gym, eat right and even wear the bodybugg. I was doing great on my program, 30 lbs down, it a point where I wasn't losing any, so I decided to try this product. It didn't work at all. I didn't cleanse, only crapped on my normal cycle and nothing out of the ordinary, and I didn't feel anymore energized. It didn't decrease my bloating feeling or anything for that matter. So, now I am in the process of how to get my money back because my Husband and I both did it and saw NO RESULTS!!! Wish us luck on gettin our money back on her supposed 100% money back guarentee!.
