If losing weight is on your to-do list for the new year, you might be curious about diet supplements that can help you along with that process. But do they work? I know I always wonder that when I walk by diet supplements in the store or my local GNC.
I was sent a 30 day supplement of Twin Lab Diet Fuel Forskohili to try over the holidays. Diet Fuel combines clinically-tested levels of three weight management nutrients to help you lose weight and gain energy.*
- Coleus Forskohlii: Support weight management with this traditional ayurvedicherb.*
- Green Tea Extract: Boost energy and focus with this powerful thermogenic.*
- Chromium: A critical trace mineral that helps you burn fat.*

The instructions tell you to take one capsule twice a day 20-30 minutes before a meal. Now, I don't know about you but except for dinner, I have a hard time knowing a full 30 minutes in advance of when I'll be eating. My toddler keeps me on my toes and our schedule stays pretty flexible. The best I was usually able to do was 15 minutes before. And this might be why I saw no change in my weight over the 30 days that I tried this supplement.
Knowing that I had a hard time following the instructions exactly, I won't blame the lack of results on the supplement. This may be a key point, though, to those considering trying it: If you have a hectic life and will struggle to have 30 minutes advance warning that you will be eating, this might not be for you.
