    So we are still looking for the Holy Grail of a weight loss, yes? In these studies, the difference was between one and 2 pounds a month. Seems to me that a dose of willpower added to an increase in physical activity would yield much better results... But of course that requires actually doing something rather than popping a pill or two.
