I tried numerous herbal supplements that talked about blocking carbs, and preventing fat absorption - and none of them worked. I can tell you - IMHO the only thing that change helps you lose weight if you have a lot to lose is a complete lifestyle change.
I made changes to my diet (I'm a mostly vegetarian, but so addicted to junk food) - started watching what I ate, controlling my portions, and staying away from processed foods. I also started exercising. I've now lost 53 lbs (since August 1, 2001), and more weight is coming off (I have a total of 110 lbs to lose).
Good luck! You can always PM me if you want to talk more.
