Default Help is this a woman Fat burner pill?

Hello

So i whent to Costco today to buy well costco stuff. So i passed the section where fat burners and diet pills are...So i picked me up 1.

its called, Fat Burners, Made by WEIDER


o i read the back, It says nothing about being for woman only, Does not say anything about men shouldnt take this or anything...It just says dont take this if your pregnant or trying to become pregnant...

So yea, As a male. Will this not do anything bad to me?

Im just sorta nervous because i think if i take this it will increase my moobs or something lol, I workout, im at 237 pounds now. When i started my diet i was at 293. but i still got a gut, moobs and some fat on sides and legs.

So yea.... back to the official question. If i take this. Will anything bad happen? does it not matter if i am a man? Or is this pill for both men and women. just has a pic of a lady on it..?

If someone can answer this ill be greatly appreciated.

i dont know much on diet pills. i just know what men and woman look into for weight loss. As men, we practically want everything to be gone. But from what i see it woman want there breast big, So will a womans diet pill not affect the breast area?

So if this is indeed a Womans diet pill, And if i take it,. It wont have no affect on my chest area??

I've never heard of a diet pill being specifically for one sex. I think you're safe there.

I would suggest either asking your doctor about it or calling the company and asking. The last thing you need is the stress of wondering if something you want to help you is hurting you.

Peace and good luck!

As far as I am aware, diet pills tend to have a poor success rate and often turn out to have unexpected side effects that aren't mentioned at all. Quite a few have been yanked off the market due to side effects, and being ineffective isn't considered a reason to pull them. If in any doubt, I'd avoid them. To be honest, most of us here consider them to be pointless and potentially harmful anyway.
