Default Has anyone supplemented their diet/ workout, and seen actual benefit?

Ive been on a low carb, lo cal, high protein diet for almost a year, at firth the pounds were just falling off. But lately im noticing that the scale isnt as willing to budge. I havent changed anything or fallen off my diet. It just isnt working quite as well. For work outs I do at home videos, basically just the Julianne Hough dancing with the stars video (LOVE IT), but its not as effective anymore. I plan to add Tae Bo, and another Dancing with the stars video as well as working on the weight bench to change it up a bit.
My neighbor is a 53 year old woman. Shes tiny, but shes a heavy beer drinker as evident by the weight she carries in her mid section. I hadnt seen her in about a week and she stopped over last night, and I couldnt believe my eyes. Her belly fat is significantly smaller. I asked hwr if she had started working out and commented on how good she looked. And she said that she doesnt work out at all, that shes been taking CLA supplements (Conjugalated Linolic Acid) and its helping her tone her mid-section.
Last night while I was shopping I bought some. It says it comes from safflower oil, and it helps tone lean muscle.
While I dont think that there is some magical pill out there that will 'cure' me of being fat forever, i'm considering adding this to my diet to help see results from my work out.
Has anyone tried CLA with a healthy diet and workout, and seen more results while using it than off of it?
Just curious.
