Chillen, I'm inline/agree with your mentality. Fat loss supplements and 'properties' are only a very, very small fraction of the big picture. They may certainly help but the benefits are marginal. NOTHING can overcome correct changes in diet (and adequate training). Most of the hype for these supplement/drugs are nothing more than marketing ploys. Maximize the minimum.
Something to consider on that topic: With the obesity "epidemic" in the United States, if there was a real fat loss wonder drug, don't you think you would have heard of it by now not to mention, seen its wide(er) spread use?
