A separate group is sports fat burners, the manufacturers of which directly say that without a calorie deficit and training, fat burners do not work. However, manufacturers of diet pills also recommend adhering to the rules of a healthy diet. Therefore, losing weight without pills is cheaper and healthier.
Liposuction and gastric banding also promise quick results. In the first case, due to pumping fat from problem areas, and in the second - due to a reduction in food volumes. However, with the return to the previous way of life, extra pounds will return.
