Now I have not personally tried some of these things because my goal is not for weight loss but health. I pay attention to claims made by products, people and then go read up on them.
The more you read the more you’ll realize the shit on TV, is just that … shit. Diet, exercise, and staying active works better than anything else you’ll buy over the counter or on an infomercial.
This one is about Lipozene but ALWAYS consult your physician before taking anything like this or even beginning your routine. You need to explain your goals to the doctor so you do it in an effective manner and don’t give up on yourself.
Lipozene is a branded weight loss supplement, containing glucomannan as an active ingredient. Glucomannan is a fiber from the root of the konjac plant, Amorphophallus konjac. Glucomannan is a soluble fiber that absorbs many times its weight in water. Because of this, konjac products are popular thickeners in some foods. Taking Lipozene with a full glass of water before each meal creates a thick, gel-like substance in the stomach. This substance leaves less room in the stomach for food. Because of this, a person who takes Lipozene may feel full sooner, which may reduce the chances of overeating.
Most people tolerate glucomannan well. Some people may be more sensitive to soluble fibers, and mild reactions in the digestive system may occur. Mild side effects from taking glucomannan may include stomach pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea. There is a risk of choking if an individual does not drink enough water along with Lipozene capsules. If the capsules were to become stuck in the throat, they may expand and swell, blocking the esophagus. People who have difficulty swallowing capsules may want to avoid Lipozene.
Anyone experiencing serious side effects, such as chest pain, difficulty breathing or swallowing after taking Lipozene must seek immediate medical attention.
Typically, the effectiveness of Lipozene for weight loss is mild. A review in Current Obesity Reports notes a broad body of research, including nine clinical trials, showing glucomannan may be mildly effective for weight loss.
The researchers note weight loss of between 0.5–1.7 pounds after taking glucomannan for 5.2 weeks. However, an older 2013 study suggests that glucomannan does not promote weight loss, alter body composition, or change feelings of hunger or fullness.
For many, these mixed results may be enough to justify taking Lipozene to boost their diet and weight loss goals. Others may feel they do not justify the cost.
Obesity Research Institute: This is an LLC that sells the product Lipozene and not an actual “Institute” below is a snapshot of reviews via Amazon. Whether you agree with the details or not if it was a game-changer these reviews would be a lot better.

On their TV commercial, I saw on 12-23-2020 they claim their double-blind study states which they never mention the report itself so we can go read it. They also claim people testing Lipozene did not have to change eating habits or lifestyle. This magic “pill” fantasy is just that a fantasy you have to work any time you want long term success. Take time to learn how these products work and get with your doctor and I have not met one yet that says to use this kind of stuff.
