I've been taking One-A-Day Weight Smart (and sometimes the generic versions, like at Wal Mart) for a few years. Can't say it ever actually helped with weight loss though, as I certainly gained while taking it, lol.

I actually had to stop taking it because the amount of zinc in it made me sick every time I would take it.

Didn't do anything extra for me so I went back to the store brand of regular vitamins.

I buy the Walmart version (comparing ingredients Walmart is usually very close or identical to One a Day products). I don't think it does anything noticeable, and the ingredients are nearly the same as in a "regular" daily mulit-vitamin anyway, just a few differences. I would probably switch back to the regular, if the regular where much cheaper, but at Walmart the prices are fairly close.

There was just an article in Nutrition Action Newsletter last month that said all of the different One-a-Day versions didn't really do anything like they claim. There's one for breast health, prostate health, the weight one, etc.

I find that it gives me just a little boost of energy, so I usually take it like a half hour before going to the gym.

I took an earlier version of this (before they put the green tea extract in) and lost weight--however, I was also eating on plan and running about six miles a day, so I think that had more to do with it. At some point they changed the formula to add green tea extracts and I noticed that I was getting really nauseated after taking it. I read online that others had the same experience, so I switched to a non-weight support vitamin. My weight loss continued at exactly the same rate. I think the "weight support" vitamins are a way to sell vitamins.
