What diet supplements are safe and effective to take while dieting? Doctors or nurses please answer?

I’m trying to lose weight and I am concerned about over the counter diet supplements. It always scares me when I read "not FDA approved" and since I have high blood pressure I wanted to know what is the safest and most effective over the counter diet supplement?

  1. You don’t need supplements for weight loss, the actual diet matters a lot more. The only one I’d recommend is whey protein for post-workout supplementation, to repair the torn down muscle fibers quickly. The FDA is a joke, it doesn’t matter what they approve, they could not care less about your health, it’s about profit. Foods with trans fats are deemed ok by the FDA. Even worse, they can claim 0g trans fat when there is in fact trans fat in the food.

    If the purpose of your diet is to get to a healthier weight or lose flab, you don’t need to take ANY supplements, you just need to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet, and burn more calories than you consume. You achieve this simply by exercising more. If you use more "fuel" than you consume, you will burn fat and get smaller. It’s as simple as that!
