So there's no free lunch--you have to change your lifestyle anyway--so why not just do that to begin with and skip the pills along with their no-doubt myriad of potential risks....

Perhaps it's like Alli? Aimed at increasing the amount of weight lost when the person follows a reduced calorie diet? I know in the literature, they claimed something like 15% extra weight lost.

Personally, I'd rather just manage my weight through diet and exercise, but I can see how some folks could use it to help get them to their goal faster. But I remember the heart scares after the Phen-Fen debacle and weight loss drugs are definitely not for me.
