Lipozene is a dietary supplement for weight management designed to help you lose weight without changing your lifestyle. The manufacturers behind the product claim on the official Lipozene website that this over-the-counter (OTC) diet pill is clinically proven to help you lose weight, and you can still eat your favorite foods and you don’t need to change your exercise.
For starters, this claim sounds great but it is highly unlikely and extremely misleading. The reason is that the only way it could be true is if a person who was taking Lipozene had already been following a calorie-controlled diet and was regularly exercising. In this case, they might not have to make alterations to their diet and exercise to enjoy any benefits Lipozene might contribute to their efforts.
On the other hand, if you want to lose weight, but you don’t intend to reduce the amount of calories you eat and regularly exercise, Lipozene isn’t going to help you with your fat loss goals in any measureable way. The simple fact of the matter is that conventional weight loss methods (diet and exercise) are what lead to the loss of excess pounds. Lipozene or any other non-prescription or prescription medication may help you achieve this goal by making it easier for you to control your diet and keep up with exercise, but no product by itself will work in any meaningful way.
With that in mind. Lipozene is made up of a proprietary blend containing Amorphophallus Konjac (from Konjac root). There is 1500 mg per 2 capsule serving.
The recommended use is to take 2 capsules 30 minutes prior to meals, with at least 8 ounces of water. You can take Lipozene up to 3 times per day (a maximum total of 6 capsules per day). The reason why it is important for you to take the capsules with plenty of water is konjac root, better known as glucomanan, is a water-soluble fiber. This gel-like fiber expands when combined with water. Not ingesting significant water could lead to it not reaching your stomach fast enough. This could lead to it expanding in your throat or esophagus, which could lead to choking.
Although there is no clinical proof that taking glucomanan will lead to measureable weight loss, this fiber, which is said to have the ability to absorb up to 200x its own size in water, is believed to help suppress appetite by helping to fill up the stomach so that you feel fuller and will consume less food at a meal.
These diet pills are not recommended for anyone who has difficulty swallowing. What’s more anyone with a known medical condition, pregnant or nursing women, or anyone taking other medications (prescription or non-prescription) should speak with their doctor first before taking Lipozene.
