Hi everyone, I keep hearing commercials on the radio for Body Solutions the weight loss product you take 3 hours before going to bed and it burns fat while you sleep. Just wondering if anyone has tried this and it if works or will I be wasting my money? I have changed my eating habits and have dropped a few pounds but figure if this works, I will lose more faster. Any response would be appreciated.

Nothing in these products is new or going to help you 'burn fat while you sleep'. This sounds like the same claim that was made by those people who came up with "Exercise in a Bottle".
I checked the Body Solutions web site and apparently the main ingredients in their formula are aloe vera and collagen, neither of which will help you burn fat (at least as far as I know). Their website does feature 'research' that supposedly shows that their product 'works'. But you've got to take those 'studies' with a huge grain of salt - remember that the tobacco industry had studies done that showed cigarettes were good for you!
They also had three 'testimonials' from people who apparently swear by this stuff -- but hey, if you're eating fewer calories and exercising more than usual(as I'm sure the subjects were) you're bound to lose weight, nostrum or no.
The rest of their products are the usual ephedrine, vitamins, etc. Unfortunately I couldn't find a price list as they asked for me to give my email address which I did not want to do, otherwise I'll be bombarded by emails for this stuff!
I hope that Bumby sees this thread and checks the Body Solutions website out - I'd like to hear her thoughts on what the 'study conclusions' are...
Looks like we can chalk up another diet industry scam here!

Due to another thread with the same topic, pulling up.
