Weights or a book on common exercises. Anything else is either a rip-off, gimmick, or likely going to stress out your kidneys and liver. There are no shortcuts.

If they had a drug that worked like that. You could not get in the door due to the demand for the product, and no one would be fat.

A good multivitamin

Do they sell self-discipline and hard work there? If so, those would be the two best things you could buy. There's no shortcut to losing weight and getting fitter. There's no such thing as a magic pill/potion - it takes work and dedication.

Protein powder
Much of what GNC and stores like it sell is gimicky. You can find multiple articles on line talking about the that of effectiveness with the various "supplements" Be very careful going down that road and make sure you know what it is you're putting in your body. Many of the "diet and energy" pills are simply large doses of caffeine wrapped in mystery substance.

Look you already posted this and everyone told you that there is no miracle pill.

Either start eating correct(healthier foods and correct proportions) or deal with it.

Once again, you didn't get fat in one day you wont lose fat in one day. It takes work and dedication.

I didn't buy these at GNC. I got a performance formula multi for women vitamin and a co-q 10. Not sure if ti actually "helps" with weight loss, but I'm making sure I am getting all my vitamins :)

Isn't it amusing when people don't like hearing "There are no shortcuts" and they post more threads?

Y'know what?

These are the same kinds of people you read about in magazines or the news dying because they've taken X dangerous drug and ended up overheating so badly that they have a heart attack.

I'll not quote the drug i'm referring to, but it's WELL known. And no, i'm not referring to speed/meth, but that does end in the same result.

aww didnt like the answers you got the first time - because you were told there are no real shortcuts? How about you eat right, work out and take care of yourself. There is no quick fix.

A coffin. Because if you get that desperate you'll end up doing something that you'll need one for ;)

Flaxseed oil is good to add but again it won't speed up the process. Only make you healthier!

Was a manager at gnc for 5 years. I can tell you with certainty and confidence nothing is going to make you lose weight except for you. You may find things to decrease appetite or give you energy. Both are temporary and may cause other health problems. Chances are once you stop them you will go back to your former habits. And I have seen many people who felt far hungrier after diet pills wore off. You may find very high priced products to "cleanse, but what you lose is not fat. And the side effects can be disgusting. They have meal replacement shakes. That still comes down to calories restriction. Why spend the money on that when you can limit to those same calories and eat things that taste good.
Vitamins are good for you for the most part.
The really interesting thing I learned while I worked there was that it was much easier to help those trying to gain weight than lose.
There are a lot of supplements there that will help with many things so I am in no way downing GNC. However, weight loss is better achieved with hard work and a change in your food habits. It is also more permanent if you find a way of life you can stick to.
