Reduce carbohydrate cravings with 5-HTP
Balance blood sugar for easier dieting with chromium

Get off a plateau, where pounds do'nt seem to budge with HCA (hydroxy citric acid)
Turbo-charge fat-burning exercise with HMB (hydroxy methyl butyrate) or BCAA (branched-chain amino acids)
You'll also read about the weight-loss supplements that aren't likely to work or are possibly unsafe. You'll find a customized program to help you pick the one or more supplements that are right for you. And you'll discover an easy-to-follow, no-diet food plan for controlling calories, and a simple, no-sweat approach to physical activity for long-term weight control.
