Is th Dietary Supplement Lepti Burn any good
Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP responded:
HI and thanks so much for your posting. Save your money. This product like so many out there is another scam. You cannot regulate powerful hormones by popping a pill, especially this one.

Please please please, don't look for an answer from a pill.

Instead, log onto the WebMD Food and Fitness Planner and get started like all of us who have been successful with weight management.

Good luck

There are two basic choices that one must "weigh" (no pun) when it comes to health and, particularly, weight loss...

1. Is there something wrong with "me" (and, only me)?, or
2. Is there something wrong with what I believe?

Thank god birds don't have slow metabolisms...They'd be stuck in the same tree, forever.

When you eat a diet heavy in processed foods, you're messin' with mother nature's handiwork...Thus, the answer to the question , above?

Dr. Peeke,

First of all, thank you so much for your dedication to educating the masses on your wide variety of areas of expertise. You provide a fresh perspective, which is respected and appreciated.

As far as this particular question, I mean no disrespect whatsoever. The dietary supplement industry is rife with shady business practices, corner-cutting products, empty promises, companies that prey on hopeful consumers, and worse.

However, I do encourage you to look further into the company (BioTrust Nutrition) and the product (e.g., LeptiBurn). You will see that BioTrust is predicated on the values of honesty, integrity, and trust. Its premium, all-natural supplements are based on real scientific research.

As a matter of fact, you can review all of the research studies behind the ingredients in the product mentioned at the website:

I think the word "scam" is awful harsh to use, and I take offense to it. Admittedly, I am the Head Nutrition and Exercise Specialist with BioTrust Nutrition. Of course, I'm partial because I get to help the folks who order our products to the bodies of their dreams.

I have first-hand experience in witnessing the stellar progress that so many folks achieve while using LeptiBurn. Whether it's overcoming frustrating weight loss plateaus or obtaining body transformation goals fast and efficiently, there is no doubt that LeptiBurn has helped many people to their weight loss goals.

We are very candid with our clients and customers in educating them that it is indeed not a magic pill. We counsel these folks on their nutrition and exercise and provide free coaching throughout their journeys. However, the proof is in the pudding: many LeptiBurn users are outstandingly happy with the unprecedented results they have achieved.

Is LeptiBurn a magic pill? That's a lofty adjective to describe it, although some folks would say that it's been amazing for them. Is it a scam? Absolutely not. What's more, if it doesn't work for you, our customers are completely protected by our one-year money back guarantee.

Thank you again for your time, Dr. Peeke. Again, I intend no disrespect whatsoever. Keep up the great work of helping folks to their health and fitness goals!

brunosbud replied to Tim_S's response:
I believe you're sincere in your belief that LeptiBurn really works, Tim. Plus, I'll concede the testimonials for your product are most likely factual and accurate. But, LeptiBurn will only work for a very small percentage of the population. Tim, don't speak of studies done on the "ingredients" of your product; If you say LeptiBurn has been "proven" to work, show us the peer-reviewable, clinical trial results to back that claim.

Obesity is a disease that generally includes multiple comorbidities. High cholesterol and high blood pressure are commonly associated with excess body fat. But, when you couple those ailments with insulin resistance (diabetes), sleep apnea, hypothyroidism, arthritis, fatty liver, depression, menopause, digestive disorders, gum disease/tooth decay and allergies, now, you're dealing with very "compromised" individuals.

Finally, when you add environmental factors like family stress, air pollution, toxic mold and chemical exposure, drug dependence/addiction and job loss, you have a "patient" whose immune system is under siege.

Thus, weight loss involves the coordinated treatment of 10 "problems", not just one. This is why, imo, HCG is a scam. This is why, imo, green tea, coffee beans, whatever, is a "scam". This is why, imo, gastric bypass is a short term "fix". And, this is why, imo, LeptiBurn is a "scam", also.
Tim_S replied to brunosbud's response:
Hi brunosbud,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts and expertise. It is much appreciated and respected.

You present many valid points, with which I completely agree. There is indeed synergy that accompanies obesity. That's why our goal is to educate people on how to improve their health and fitness through nutrition and exercise, as well as through dietary supplementation.

We have an incredible amount of resources available for our customers and clients. I am certain that you don't subscribe to our daily newsletter, but every day we provide free, helpful health and fitness tips that our subscribers can implement right away to help them improve their nutrition and exercise habits.

What's more, we provide more specific diet information so folks are not simply left with a supplement and no idea how to use it. We also provide a free online forum where customers have access to free coaching and social support.

I completely understand how one's viewpoint can be completely jaded by the real scams that are going on in the industry. However, I take considerable exception to being thrown in that same pot.

While we are only about a year old, our company sets aside a portion of every dollar earned to fund double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials to further demonstrate our products' effectiveness. We are excited to get these research trials under way in the near future.

Thanks again for your reply, brunosbud. I don't expect to convince you of anything because I realize that your mind is already made up. But, I am sure there are many others out there who read these comments and place significant value on them. If we can help even a small percentage of those people improve their health and fitness and reduce their risks for disease, then this has been well worth my time.


brunosbud replied to Tim_S's response:
Thanks, I much appreciate your consideration and thoughtful response! Actually, no convincing on your part is necessary since we already "swim in the same pool". I, too, believe that the goal is " educate people on how to improve their health and fitness through nutrition and exercise..."

Good luck, Tim!

My advice - do not become a full out vegan, its hard work and you will struggle in the long run.It is absolutely essential that you get the important nutrients.
dellstreakx replied to Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP's response:
What a worthless response. Ask any bodybuilder about regulating hormones with pills. Whether it's legal or not, they do it every day.
Anyone who is genetically predisposed to having extra fat on their body should know that any "solution" will be a short term solution... like coloring your hair. Can't change your DNA, but you can alter it, artificially or otherwise, temporarily. How long you sustain it is up to you and your body's reaction to however it's being manipulated.
spaul8809 responded:
The basic logic behind the fat gain is "calories" many Fitness and Health experts recommended that your diet should be in a balanced form, balanced form means proper ratio between carbs, nutrition, vitamins, and proteins. They recommend that your diet should be in the "40:30:30" ratio of calories obtained daily from carbs, fats and proteins. If your diet is not according to the prescribed format then it may cause some effect on your health.
When I was in the age of 25 I had taken the challenge for weight loss program. When I joined my first job I felt so guilty due to my excess weight so one of my colleague advised me to join a gym then I searched a nearest gym from my home and joined it without wasting a single day. from the first day my gym manager allotted me my personal trainer who was very experienced in this field he advised me some basic rules and regulations for the weight loss program which include proper and balanced diet and some exercises for warm up but I generally felt some weakness so he advised me to use USPlabs Bcaa plus post workout supplement to boost up my energy level during exercise sessions. When I used this product I really felt full of energetic because this product contains all necessary nutrition and minerals in a correct ratio. This product not only increases your energy power but also it provides all necessary nutrition. In 4 month, I lost 23 kilogram weight just with the help of my trainer and with the help of supplement. Really this was a great achievement for me in my life.

Though dietary supplements can't fulfill all the nutrients and benefits of whole foods, but can be taken for health benefits. They come in the form of pills, capsules, powders or liquids. It is always advisable to take supplements after doctor's consultation.
