They work based on suppressing the appetite. You can simply buy Tamarind souse or paste (much much cheaper than the pills) and you will get the same results. I did it. I question the promotions of Dr. Oz many times. My late husband was a leading gastroenterologist (world known scientist) with specialty food, toxicology and immunology. I also have med degree. Dr. OZ's show is sponsored by companies , so he follows their wish for better advertising and sometime my husband and I disagree what he says. But, hey ..Oz got the golden bull.View Thread
Obviously, the wall of the remaining after the bypass are stretching because of the old eating habits. Portion control is very important and exercises for the mid-body. Drinking one glass of water with 2-3 tbsp lemon juice before meals and cut in a half your portions from what is your current intake. After a month cut from this half another half. Add tamarind paste (can find in Tai /Asian market) to the meals. It suppress the appetite. Hope you will get good results. I've lost 60 lb for 7-8 months. PAView Thread
