Most weight loss supplements don't work, but if by some chance they do, they aren't meant for long term use and most people gain back whatever weight they managed to lose, as soon as they stop taking them and start eating normally.

The easiest, safest way to lose weight is to implement a healthy diet, chock full of fresh/frozen veggies, fruits, low fat dairy, lean protein, etc.  Calculate your daily calorie needs, then stay within your calorie budget.

Implement some exercise - at least 30 min/day, 3 days/week is minimum recommended, but if you can do an hour/day that's better.  You don't have to start out real strong... simply going for an hour walk every day is a great start.  Or do a 30 minute walk and 30 minutes of yoga, pilates or some other type of exercise.

I always take full far dairy. I just cant compromise with that, also your body needs a certain fat anyways, if everything is low fat or even more terrible fat free, where do you get it from ?
If it helps you, all my life I had the same struggle.
in december I was obese, now im just overweighted.
I tried pills, they never helped. Waste of money and hope.
I started to walk alot , make some exercise, watch my calorie intake and my food.
It helped.
What you need, and I know is very hard, is commitment to do it !
I lost 8 kg, would had lost more, if for other reasons in february I wouldnt give up on it.
Im 76 kg now, aiming for 60, but would be happy with 64 too.
If I believe in myself, I know I can do it.
Why wouldnt it work for you either ?

Yes, some fat is necessary, but it's best to opt for healthier fats, such as those found in olives, olive oil, avocados, nuts, nut butters and oils etc.  While some saturated fat is okay, it's best to limit it.  Whether or not one is okay with full fat dairy, depends on how much they consume.  If a person consumes more than 3 servings full fat dairy/day, they could be getting their entire day's allotment for fat, with just that.  That said, I do eat full fat cottage cheese.

I don't believe on this type products. Best way is healthy food and more sports!

I know this product. But I can't say how it works, for you the best is to talk to a nutritionist!

I don't like to follow a diet and don't have time for sports. For that I'm looking for another solution!

Have you been to the doctor? You need to have some test done to make sure everything is optimal such as your vitamin and mineral levels, thyroid, adrenals, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and leptin. If these are off then weight loss will be difficult. Try t-tapp. The fact that you have tried several diets with no results tells me that you need a different approach. T-tapp is mindful movement and only takes 15 minutes a day. It focus on muscle activation and keep the lymphatic system optimal to promote fat loss. Here's the website: http://www.t-tapp.com/
There's also a try before you buy page on t-tapp so you can sample the exercises and see how it works before you buy: http://www.t-tapp.com/try/
You also have to change your diet. No more processed foods. You need to consume more vegetables and fruits. My advice is to make smoothies out of fruits and vegetables this way it is easier to consume b/c it is in liquid form. Add coconut oil and avocado to your smoothies along with coconut water for these ingredients promote fat loss and decrease inflammation in the body which is a reason why people have a hard time losing weight. Some smoothies ideas just get creative blend two vegetables together with two fruits along with the avocado, coconut oil, and coconut water. The avocado, coconut oil, and coconut water should be in every smoothie you make. Also add a protein such as hemp seed, whey, casein or egg white protein powder b/c protein promotes weight loss b/c it makes the body use more energy to burn protein than the actual calorie count of the protein. Do you take a multivitamin? You need to start taking one. You also need probiotics to keep things running smoothly so the foods you eat the body can absorb the nutrients and put them to use. Your meals have to contain lean protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates. Lean proteins should be fish, chicken, beans, turkey. Healthy fats avocado, and seeds or nuts, coconut oil. Complex carbohydrates brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, vegetable pasta, amaranth, black rice, sweet potatoes. There's alot that goes into weight loss. If you want more tips send me a message. Best of luck hang in there I know its hard but trying is better than doing nothing

The only weight loss supplement that actually works is speed, and you can't stay on speed.  For permanent weight loss and safe weight loss, you have to change your diet permanently, not just go on a "diet."  Individuals vary somewhat (or sometimes a lot) on the foods that suit them the best, but cutting calories won't do it for you.  Calories aren't the problem with weight loss -- metabolism is.  Fatty fish is very high in calories, but nobody gains weight on it.  People do gain weight on eating too much white flour, even when the calories aren't that high, because it turns to sugar very quickly when eaten and, if not burned off quickly, will store as fat.  A balanced diet of veggies, whole grains, and protein sources that aren't full of fat (meaning low on the animal other than fish and wild game).  For example, eating beef from cows means eating meat created by humans precisely because it's full of fat.  Buffalo, on the other hand, has very little body fat and so less fat for you if you eat it.  These are the concerns that you have to do your homework and learn to set up a good diet that works for you, and then you have to move -- a sedentary life won't cut it.  Hopefully, if you find your dietary and exercise niche, the weight will slowly but steadily come off and stay off.  Good luck.
