I don't think it really does much for my weight loss, but it does have the right amount of certain vitamins that I tend to be routinely low on. It also seems to keep my immune system boosted, which is important for me as I work with little germ bags, um, I mean children. As far as an appetite suppressant, the best thing I can recommend is to keep your carbs reduced, which will in turn keep you from having a hard carb crash.
I second almeeker here on the "Weight Smart" One-A-Day product... I think it's called that...something about active metabolism? I don't know, but it's made from fish and soy, and helps me get a lot of B vitamins that I otherwise seem to lack. I like because I feel like it really is a diet 'supplement' rather than a diet 'pill.' I don't depend on it to magically keep me healthy, but since I've been taking it for a couple of weeks now I do feel more balanced. Placebo effect or not, I know it's not a bad one!
