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?

It won't work, I would take it back now if I were you, it was a waste of money.

I was very disappointed in the calorie control pills. They did not work for me at all. In fact I gained weight. A waste of time and money.

The detox and cleanse was awesome,I was losing with that but when I got to the probiotic and fatburner it seemed as if I started gaining again.

Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels is being sued for reported false advertising, according to The Associated Press. The suit was filed by Christie Christensen of California, claiming she was duped into buying a diet supplement endorsed by Michaels, star of NBC’s reality show “The Biggest Loser.”

According to the story “Christensen's lawsuit claims she bought a product called "Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control" last month and that it has failed to lessen her appetite or cause her to lose weight as advertised.”

The lawsuit also states that “Ms. Michaels knows better – taking two pills before eating does not miraculously cause weight loss.”

The product's Web site, however, claims that the statements and claims of the product had not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

i've been taking the JM extreme fat burners and its been about a month and ive lost about 10 pounds. After having my daughter it was hard to get back into shape. I couldnt stop eating and i wasnt losing any weight. I started these pills and started going to the gym. I dont know if my craving for food stopped due to motivation or because of the pills but whatever it is its working. You cant expect to take a pill and eat whatever u want whenever u want and expect to lose weight! u must work at it and together with excercise and smart eating you'll see results

I bought jillian micheals fat burner and lost thirteen pounds in one month, i didnt really change my food habits , but i did excersise. I just bought the calorie control and decided to try that out as well, but i was very satisfied with the fat burner. I think its well worth the money, and I have several health issues and it seemed to not effect me in any bad ways at all.
