There is only one proven Fat Blocker, available only by prescription from your doctor. It is Xenical. I would think that the rest were just hyped-OTC that block $$ from staying in your wallet.

If you do a search here, you'll come up with information.

This subject has come up quite often in the past.

Marbleflys is right of course; they don't work, except for maybe Xenical (had some threads on that as well...)

Here's some threads you can check out:

Chitosan?

Any diet supplements proven to help with weight loss?

Anyone have any success using meds???

Carb Blockers??

I have a humble opinion ... the best fat blocker is your discretion armed with wisdom and knowledge. Learn about fats and eat less of them.
That and I'm too cheap to buy this stuff
