Has anyone tried the new Jillian Michaels QuickStart Rapid weight loss program, Maximum strenght fat burner pills, or the Thincare international Jillian Michaels maximum strenght calorie control tablets, or the triple process body detox and clense. If so could you tell me is it safe and is it worth the money?

Thanks for the story Tina.

Although I think that celebrity endorsements for diet pills are really just a way to make more money, I can't believe someone actually sued over it. I guess it isn't so much that she sued, but she sued for lack of weight loss and clearly stated how she has had trouble losing weight her whole life. Had she sued over undesirable side effects or any harmful effects the pill directly did to her then I'd be a little more sympathetic but how many pills are out there that don't work? I think I'd be a millionaire for all the possible companies I could have sued when I was a silly teen trying to take supplements. I guess I missed my boat-- haha.

Wow.. I can't believe someone filed a lawsuit but I guess I am not surprised as people sue over anything today. I am a believer in the products. I guess people are looking to make it rich off of someone else's success. I am happy with my experiences but I guess its like anything else some medications over the counter work for some and don't work for others. I believe its also what you put into it. If I can make changes to my body then I am sure others can and will do the same. I really hope people will quit filing lawsuits and get off their behinds and work hard for money instead of going after someone who is successful. Its a shame ...

Please do NOT waste your money. I tried 3 products from this line along with a diet. I had hope for better results.

as a person who suffers greatly with weight loss there are a few things to consider...
1) tablets and programmes on the internet etc are all money making quick fixes
2) join a local slimming club to learn about healthy eating ....don't see it as going on a diet!
3) have you had your thyroid gland checked
4) could you have poly cystic ovary syndrome?
5) "LOW FAT" diet meals have hidden sugars...look at the labels on diet foods they are low in fat but usually high in sugars!

We are all guilty of over eating... but sometimes we can have underlying " intolerances" as opposed to "allergies" the two are completely different and affect the way we digest foods... Gluten / Wheat are the most common "intolerances" which we as humans find difficult to digest...as is yeast. Lots of supermarkets offer gluten / wheat free goods so it is worth replacing things such as bread, pasta, crackerbread and cereal with these...that way you don't feel that the staple foods are being taking away from you.

My suggestion to you is to forget the "fad" diets and seek help from the GP. Various pills are available to help, that work with calorie controlled diets. They will give you fact sheets on the best types of foods and monitor your weight loss and blood pressure as you go. You do need to be classed as clinically obese (which to be honest those with a real weight issue generally are) before you can start. I am taking xenicol at the moment so I will keep you posted on how I do.
There is really only one answer for us all.....eat less, exercise more and enjoy planning that new summer wardrobe of slim fitting clothes when we reach our goal!!!! good luck :-)

Today, a class action suit has been filed against The Biggest Loser trainer at the L.A. County Superior Court. The files say that her dietary supplement, Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control, is "worthless" and a terrible "deception" to the American public.

The lawsuit asks for an injunction to prohibit the sale of the product, plus damages.

I have tried the calorie control pills. I workout to her video every other day for a two weeks. I have fibromyalgia so I couldn't do the levels they did but after three weeks I had lost almost 20 pounds! I watched what I ate was looking at the calories alot so I tried to be good but occasionally had to have some sweet things. My results are great. I didnt kill myself on the workouts and walked on the days I didnt workout. I did it with a major disability and I wasn't fanatical about it and I am proud to recommend it to anyone.

I haven't tried these pills but have had success with SoloSlim, extra strength. I got them thru The Apple Store on line. I researched them and see nothing harmful. No side effects after 4 months on them.
