As requested, more on the green tea diet pills:
Disclaimer: this is how these pills make ME feel. I'm sure it could be different for different people.
They honestly DO make me less hungry. You're supposed to take them with food, but I never do. (Der.)
I don't ever feel any really horrible side effects. I suppose if you didn't have much caffeine in your diet on a daily basis, you'd probably get the shakes, but who of us can live without caffeine? They make me a bit jittery occasionally but no more than a sugar-free Red Bull does.
I do NOT get the shakes, do NOT crash from them, and they honestly make me have energy and curb my hunger quite a bit... I mean, you'll still be hungry if you don't eat. That's inevitable no matter what you take. I just find that I don't notice it as much. The nagging isn't as strong and my stomach doesn't get as flip-floppy.
I recommend them! If you're doing well with restricting already, they'll help. If you're NOT doing so well, I'd say they probably won't make that much of a difference, except I DO find that I lose slightly more slightly more quickly when I take them.
Hope this helps, ladies! Think thin!
