Skinny Fiber Review

Skinny Fiber Facts

  • Manufactured by Skinny Body Care, USA
  • Bottles contain 120 capsules or one month’s supply
  • Main ingredient is Glucomannan

Skinny Fiber contains natural ingredients all delivered with large helping of psychobabble that attempts to explain your failure to lose weight in the past. Apparently it all comes down to toxins and a weak immune system caused by eating too much of the wrong food. This function is never fully explained by the advertising.

This diet pill contains key ingredients that are high in fiber and have an appetite suppressing effect by filling your stomach so you do not suffer hunger pangs while you lose weight.

Skinny Fiber is an American diet pill manufactured by Skinny Body Care in the US who are owned by Iconz Global Network, LLC. and is advertised as being the answer to weight loss. Unlike many other supplements on the market this is not a fat burner but an appetite suppressant so will suit consumers who do not like the effects of caffeine. Be warned though, this diet pill does contain stimulant cha de bugre but this is not the principle ingredient. The way that this pill works for weight loss is by filling your stomach thus minimising the effects of hunger. According to the advertising, the ingredients are also rich in enzymes and will help regulate your hormones and reduce the feelings of hunger in your brain.

To use Skinny Body you take two capsules 30 minutes before lunch and again 30 minutes before your evening meal. You are advised to take with a glass of water and the appetite suppressant effect will kick in and prevent you from over eating at mealtimes.

The product information is not very clear about how this diet pill actually works and there is some rather confusing information that goes on about toxins and nutrients, without actually saying anything. We feel that the product information is very incomplete and the result is that it is hard to figure out what it is, that this diet pill actually does.

Konjac Root glucomannanThere is no medical information or scientific proof that Skinny Fiber actually works but the ingredients are natural which is a point in its favour. There have been some medical issues associated with Glucomannan (see our in-depth Glucomannan ingredient article) but the product information does not mention these or any side effects.

The most prominent information given on the Skinny Fiber website seems more concerned with finding new distributors to sell this diet pill, rather than any sound advice about how to use it and what it actually contains.

Because of this sales policy, Skinny Fiber is available for sale from various sellers on Amazon.com and eBay.com. So far, it is not easily available to customers from outside the USA and although some of these third party sellers may ship internationally it will all depend on their own policies.

We are concerned about the lack of health information too. There are no FAQs or information about potential side effects yet some of the ingredients may have potential side effects.

The Skinny Fiber website is confusing, does not appear to work correctly and is extremely difficult to navigate.

For example, although you are invited to join the skinny 90-day challenge and sign up to an auto ship programme where you can receive three free bottles of Skinny Fiber – and we advise you not to do this because diet supplement contracts can be notoriously difficult to cancel.

When you attempt to buy Skinny Fiber direct from the product site, the website requires you to enter the name of “the distributor who referred you”. Even attempting to register with the site and become a site member takes you back to entering the name of your distributor. It is very confusing. If you want to try Skinny Fiber, you will probably be better off going through a third party seller.

Skinny Fiber Concerns

  • May cause side effects
  • Inadequate product information
  • Company appear focused on selling not weight loss using a Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) / Pyramid scheme

What Does Skinny Fiber Claim To Do?

The advertising on the Skinny Body website claims that the diet pills provide the following benefits

  • Proprietary Formula
  • Provide Antioxidant Properties
  • May Help Promote Weight Management
  • Support Healthy Digestion
  • Helps Supports Detoxification
  • Much More!

There is no information given about how this works and the process is not clearly explained.

The advertising goes on to say.

How many times have you tried a diet or weight loss program, followed all the directions, and didn’t get results? It’s not your fault!

This is the major selling point of Skinny Fiber and it is just not that convincing. How do the advertisers know it is not your fault? This is just an attempt to get you onside and into victim mode where you are passively waiting to lose weight with not doing anything to make this happen.

Another big statement is that,

While diet and exercise are always important to your health, moving more and eating less doesn’t always get results…which is the biggest reason why most weight loss programs flat out DON’T WORK!

However, eating less and moving more cannot fail to get results – if you stick at it.

The advertising states that;

until your body is confident enough that it is going to survive without that extra fat, losing weight is almost impossible!

It really does not make sense although we like the notion of the body having emotions. Confident arms perhaps or legs lacking in self esteem? It does not really work like that.

So What Is Skinny Fiber and What Are The Ingredients For Skinny Fiber?

Skinny Fiber contains three key ingredients that act together as an appetite suppressant. The high fibre content of the capsules expand in the stomach and cause the feeling of fullness and the cha de bugre may have some effect as a mild stimulant.

  • Glucomannan: This is a soluble fiber derived from the konjac root, also known as the elephant yam. According to research, it can promote feelings of fullness and bowel movements. It has also been tested and widely found to help reduce cholesterol levels and maintain the metabolism in a healthy way. Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16320857

    The major problem with this ingredient is that it has not yet been tested for safety and long-term use. Although there is some clinical support for potential health benefits, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved any product containing Glucomannan for the treatment of medical conditions.

    Risks of taking Glucomannan include choking and/or blockage of the throat, oesophagus or intestine, according to international adverse reaction case reports. It is also important to note that these products should NOT be taken immediately before going to bed. According to Health Canada, you should ensure you take plenty of water. Source: http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/88/4/1167.full

Lastly and most importantly, ALL clinical research showing significant weight loss is based on 3000mg per day. This supplement contains just over 2000mg in the recommended serving per day.

  • Caralluma: Is a cactus plant that is found wild in India and is often used in times of food shortages because it is said to minimise the feelings of hunger. According to a two-month clinical test carried out by the University of Bangalore on 50 people with a BMI over of over 25, Caralluma had a beneficial effect upon weight loss and waist size and does help reduce appetite. Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17097761
  • Cha de Bugre: Is a native Brazilian tree that produces a red fruit similar to a coffee bean and these berries are often used as a coffee substitute. It is a stimulant and is popular in Brazil as an energy drink. Also known as Cordia Salifocia , this fruit may have health benefits but remains unproven for promoting weight loss.

    A big problem with Cha de bugre is that in its native form, this ingredient may be beneficial but the Brazilian government has controlled export. This means it is unlikely that you will find genuine cha de bugre in uncontrolled third party supplements such as Skinny Fiber. Source: http://www.chadebugre.com/index-1.html

So What Does All This Mean?

The ingredients contained in Skinny Fiber have not undergone enough clinical evaluation to prove efficacy or safety. The FDA has not approved Glucomannan as a treatment for medical obesity and there are concerns about a potential health risk with regards the side effect of choking.

Caralluma is equally unproven and although it may be approved in the future, so far results are inconclusive. Cha de Bugre may have health benefits but the fact that export from Brazil is restricted it is unlikely that Skinny Fiber contains much of the stimulant effect. Although it may work in its home country when prepared fresh from the tree, it will probably do little here in supplement form.

Does Skinny Fiber Have Any Side Effects?

According to the product information, Skinny Fiber is safe to use. However the ingredients may cause side effects.

Most worrying is the choking hazard posed by the Glucomannan but you can also expect increased bowel movements and possibly diarrhoea as well. Some customers have experienced nausea and stomach pains.

Caution No particular known side effects. Ensure you take these with plenty of water to minimise choking risks.

Any Skinny Fiber Reviews From Customers?

There are some customer reviews about Skinny Fiber. A few people have reported side effects and many have not lost any weight,

One customer reported;

I take the pills every day 30 minutes before every meal. However, they do not seem to work. No weight loss.

Others have reported;

No I didn’t want to eat, but I didn’t lose not 1 pound…. (and I worked out and changed my everyday workout) I haven’t been so active til now trying hard to lose weight!!!! It upsets me that I couldn’t lose not 1 pound

GARBAGE!!! Does not fill me up, in the least bit. The water I drink to swallow them, does, but not these pills!! I wasted my money! Please save yourself from ordering this junk

However, there are some more positive reviews.

I lost 12 pounds in my first month and then 2 pounds after. I noticed that it does control my appetite if I take 6 pills a day (2 for breakfast, 2 for lunch, 2 for dinner). I did not take them this past weekend and ate like a hog, so I KNOW they work. You need to drink a lot of water to swell the Glucomannan

Please note that this customer has exceeded the recommended daily dose, which we would never recommend with ANY supplement.

So Does Skinny Fiber Work?

It may help you a bit. You could use these pills in an attempt to fill your stomach with fiber to resist the urge to over eat.

Alternatively, you could simply include more fiber into your diet and that way you could save money and avoid potential side effects. Some consumers have found that although their appetite has been decreased they still have not lost much weight.

Where Can I Buy Skinny Fiber?

Skinny Fiber is not available in the shops and if you attempt to buy from the product website, you may be unable to. However, you can find it on Amazon and eBay as well as a few third party websites.

Prices vary. One US seller is offering a bottle of 120 capsules for $58.99, which is a month’s supply and seems to be a standard price.

There is a 90-day challenge that is advertised from the product website and this offers you three free bottles of Skinny Fiber You have to join the site and sign up to an auto ship programme in order to qualify for this offer but it is currently not available direct from the product website. We advise against entering into any auto ship programme because you may find it hard to later cancel.

What About Money Back Guarantee?

Our first look at this supplement it appeared that the money-back guarantee was lacking. After given information from a number of distributors we have managed to find information that indicates a 30-day money back guarantee is on offer. Upon returning the bottle (empty or otherwise) to the distributor you can receive your money-back minus postage costs.

Watchdog Verdict

There are too many unanswered questions surrounding Skinny Fiber. The product website is chaotic, hard to navigate and even to buy. The ingredients contained in the capsules require further testing and Glucomannan has the potential risk of choking.

There does appear to be a money-back guarantee and many of the positive feedback found have gone on to become distributors of the product. Even still when compared to other cheaper alternatives on the market in our opinion this supplement doesn’t quite make the grade.

    Skinnyfiber has a 30 day money back guarantee I have been using this product since Nov 15 ,2012 and I have been cured of IBS and I am losing weight and I have not been sick one time since I started taking this product.. I am also in a great support group to help with changing the way we eat to make us healthier come join and see they have over 100s of testimonies and you can even talk to the people it has helped

  2. Debbie King says:

    There is only the choking warning that it is possible when taking any pills– nothing more and no one has ever choked—just and extra precaution so peeps drink their water to get it down! For those afraid of choking on SF—It is with tablets—that have been banned not capsules In a few cases, glucomannan tablets have caused obstruction of the esophagus when they expanded before reaching the stomach. In response to these reports, tablets of this type have been banned. Capsules, however, do not seem to pose the same risk because their casing prevents the glucomannan from contacting water until it reaches the stomach. The dramatic expansion of glucomannan has also raised some concerns that it could cause an obstruction in the intestines; nonetheless, as of yet, there have been no reports of this actually happening.

    One option to offset all expansion risk is to mix glucomannan powder in water so that it expands before it is ingested; however, this strategy defeats the convenience of this form of fiber.

    =============================
    -back in the 80′s they had it in tablet form–takes tabs forever to dissolve— they took those off the market and now in capsule form for faster break down and there has never been aan issue with this form— the company still puts the caution on because any pill taken with too little liquid could cause choking . I bet we have sold over a million bottles and no one has had that issue–some still just open the capsule and sprinkle in food if they are concerned or have trouble swallowing pills.!!

  3. Jackie says:

    LOVE ? Skinny FIber
    I have 20+ years in the health and nutritional supplement industry—researched for 4 months before I took the chance- YES big skeptic!!!!– But Skinny Fiber works for more people than any other product I have tried or even sold in all the health and nutrition stores I managed owned. Skinny Fiber really has helped me finally lose weight after gaining from thyroid disease and pre-menopause! I am also just about pain free from arthritis— Fibromyalgia and degenerative disc disease with sciatic nerve damage!! Before SF I dieted and exercised a lot and still could not lose a pound!!! With my issues took like 4 weeks to lose- but had great effects in other areas right from the start!!! With SF no diet or exercise and I have gone from a tight 14 to mostly size 10. Have lost 4 inches from my waist and do not have painful IBS anymore. I have more energy and now I am going to start working out–oh yeah–I did not even change my diet or work out to lose it! It took me 4 months to finally give in and take the chance–with the 30 day money back guarantee I had nothing to lose if it didn’t work!!

    • Debbie King says:

      Hey it took care of my IBS too !!!!!! I would take it just for that but it is doing so much more :) So glad to hear your report !!!!!!!

      • Laura Robinette says:

        I too was a skeptic. I’m a skeptic about anything that seems too good to be true. I followed people that were taking it and saw with my own eyes the results they were having. I decided to split an order with a friend because I am cheap and it has been a blessing to us both. I became a distributor because I believe in it so much.

    • Margaret says:

      AFter reading many reviews decided to take SF – not to lose weight but for the well-noted side-effects for reduced pain, etc. my fibromyalgia pain has reduced gradually over the past 4 months and I am virtually pain-free compared to before. Weight loss wasn’t the goal but I did lose some weight, however I only take 2 in the AM. Although I cannot attest to any weight loss management, I fully believe it’s a mindset and willingness to change your eating lifestyle.

  4. Emily says:

    love this product, it really works!! so many healthy benefits, it has helped me a lot!

  5. Alisha says:

    Skinny Fiber works period! I have lost over 60 inches and 32 lbs in months! I have more energy and get things done I wasn’t able to before Skinny Fiber. The people doubting obviously didn’t follow directions or ordered off eBay or amazon. Skinny fiber is only sold through distributors, so when you order them some where else you never know what you are getting!!!

  6. Lynn Holland says:

    Your report is wrong for various reasons. Skinny Fiber for 1 bottle is $59.95 plus shipping. You can not purchase REAL Skinny Fiber from Amazon, Ebay and etc. Your risking your health buy doing so. Many are Fake from those sites.

    90-Day Challenge is available regardless of purchasing 1 bottle, Buying 2 get 1 Free, or Buying 3 get 3 Free. Autoship is NOT a requirement.

    There is a 30-day money back guarantee on the product.

    As for the glucomannan – This once was in a different form years ago before Skinny Fiber which cause choking. It’s now in a capsule form.

    FDA does not approve any NATURAL supplements ever. All Herbal supplements are like this. Do your research.

    Skinny Fiber works great! I have lost 32lbs and 66 1/2 inches in 12 weeks!! Do more research because there is way more positive than negative.

    • Susan says:

      So how do you order it if it requires a distributors name and you don’t post one. The only thing everyone does is talk about whether or not it works for them but they don’t give any info on how to order it from the website.

      • Lore says:

        You don’t have to have a distributors name to order. You can order straight through the site but then you won’t have all the support you can. If you have facebook several dts are on there and you can find one by searching skinny fiber or skinny body care.

  7. Jill says:

    This product does work….I have been on it myself. And now have my husband on it. The choking hazard are for people like my husband who like to take pills with out drinking anything. And since they promote water as the healthiest drink and most effective with the Glucomannan they say drink with water. There most certainly is a money back guarantee. But I will say you must look for the Skinny Fiber in the pink bottle. And Do not buy from amazon or sites other then the skinny fiber site. *Link to this persons sales page removed* I am surprised how a watch dog group (as you call your self) Did not spend more time in your research and your spelling. Very shameful really.

  8. Carly says:

    My husband and i both take skinny fiber, and we love it…. not sure why everyone is complaining!!! if you eat right and drink a lot of water, it works great!!!
    You cant expected to take a pill and go to eat crap!! it doesn’t work that way!
    Think positive, stay positive!!!

  9. Randy Judd says:

    Skinny Fiber does what it says it will do. I’ve been on it almost a month and I was wearing a 46 waist in pants I now can fit into a 40 waist. Just yesterday I put on a pair of swim trunks that I haven’t been able to wear in 4 years. We have support groups to be a support to others. Every testimony is actual customers and not photo shopped to make them look better. This is the real deal. Skinny Fiber doesn’t need FDA approval because it is all natural with no side effects. Not only does it help with weight loss it also helps with many other medical issues. My Doctor believes in the product as well.

  10. Jane says:

    I have been taking Skinny Fiber for a little over a month. Not only have I lost 20+ lbs and 4 inches off my waist, my normal blood pressure at that time was 250/105. I know, that’s a heart attack waiting to happen. I checked it yesterday at the store and it was 130/80. Before I found Skinny Fiber my doctor had increased my medications to try to get it down. In fact he said at my last appt he wanted me to loose 5 lbs and drop my pressure 5 degrees. Wait till he sees me. I am so grateful for Skinny Fiber. I feel it has given my life back to me.

  11. Vikki says:

    I had tried everything short of gastric bypass surgery to lose weight, and with my medical conditions, nothing worked. I take my skinny fiber as directed every day and in 2 months, I have lost 20 pounds, 16.5 inches overall, and 3 pants sizes, this is my miracle!!!!

  12. Debbie King says:

    Skinny Fiber’s unique fiber blend Expands 50x it’s size in your stomach, which can help trigger your brain to feel it’s full to help you eat less.

    Simply take Skinny Fiber ( 2 capsules) before your largest meals of the day and you will be amazed at how much less you will need to eat yet feel satisfied.

  13. Susie says:

    I LOVE Skinny Fiber, I have been using it for 10 months and yes it does work, I have not lost a single lb, but…. I have lost 45 inches all over and feel so good, The pounds are starting to come off now, but I am not ready to weigh just yet. I know sf does work, anyone that says it does not work is just not ready to lose weight, its not a magic pill, it will not make u eat less, only u can do that, but it will help u feel full even if u eat less. its the best thing I have ever found.

  14. Ruth Cain says:

    I started taking Skinny Fiber on June 11, 2013 … 1st it took away my cravings. I no longer crave Fr Van Cappuccino/Coffee, Dr. Pepper … just drink water now. At my 2 week measurement time i was down 7 3/4″, at 21 days i was down 10″ & 7lbs … all my clothes that were tight are much looser today, some too loose to wear. I LOVE Skinny Fiber!! I am VERY glad I bought it & will continue to take it!

    • mohankrishna says:

      • Susan Young says:

        No diet or exercise required, but guidelines are given to exercise 20 minutes a day and try to eat healthier food. You naturally do and the weight falls off. You can find me on FB if you need help

  15. Laura says:

  16. Debbie King says:

    Here is some information on the product: Skinny Fiber

    *Sales content copy pasted from elsewhere has been removed*

    Editor: Please post original content only and not promotional material provided by the company, thanks

  17. Jacquie Bernhardsson says:

    I love Skinny Fiber, I tried ” ItWorks” it is temporary and you have to keep wrapping and wrapping at about $100 / month. I am losing the actually fat, last night my husband said he noticed my belly shrinking,YAY! Remember have these sights are one or two negative nellies versus 2 Billion people using it! What does that tell you
    Jacquie

  18. Angie says:

    I have taken this for five weeks and have lost 16 lbs. and two pant sizes. There are plenty of clinical trials on each main ingredient. The main ingredient is even praised by Dr. Oz publicly on his website and show.

    Most supplements are not FDA approved as we don’t have the funding to govern every single thing we put in our bodies. The money back guarantee does work – I know this one first hand and their customer support is AMAZING!

    Just like with any “weightloss” product, you have to be consistent. There is no easy miracle out there. I beg to differ on the website, it is as easy as can be and tells you everything. They disclose every thing you could need to know. I don’t know who wrote this but I wonder if they are just bored and negative. I have had nothing but a good experience with this product and will continue to purchase it and take it as I have never felt better!!!

  19. Janice says:

    Very disappointed in this review. The site does offer a money-back guarantee, valid for 30 days after purchase and listed right on the website. I’ve also had great success with it and lose an average of 2 pounds every week.
    Not a great review, given that your “facts” are false and incredibly one-sided.

  20. AnneMarie Duggan says:

    I have been a professional dieter for 30+ years…..I was very hesitant to try Skinny Fiber, did the research (I am an RN with an MSN and MHA) and decided to give it a try….especially with the money back guarantee. I am SO glad I did! Within the first few days it took away my cravings for sweets, and helped me feel full with no side effects!!! YAY!! I also have more energy with NO feelings of anxiety or nervousness. I have gratefully given away several inches without craving or denying myself. My hubby started taking it a week ago and also has lost inches!! WE LOVE SF!!!!!!

  21. Lauriecrook says:

    I have taken skinny fiber for a year and have lost lots of inches and weight and happy with my results I love my skinny fiber

  22. Wanda says:

    Skinny Fiber does work, and you do not even have correct info posted. You are more than welcome to add me as a friend on facebook, and go through my progress pics as well as my family. Stop trying to put down on a product that you have never used because you want to promote that other JUNK you have posted that looks like it is in a bottle full of chemicals

  23. Trisha Payne says:

    Hello, my husband and I have both been taking it for over a month and lost weight. He just made another hole in his belt loop this morning! It seems like many pills that have great reviews on this site have stimulants. Those are so bad for you especially if you have high blood pressure. So many overweight people have it because of their weight so why try to push these unnatural chemicals off on them Diet Pills Watchdog. Let’s stick to buying all natural things like Skinny Fiber. I can go to GNC and buy all of the ingredients separately, there are no hidden ingredients.

  24. Debbie King says:

    Skinny fiber has stopped my IBS and I am losing weight and inches since I started in Nov 2012 and I feel great no jitters… no stimulants all natural ingredients I Love my skinny fiber

  25. Patty Graham says:

    I am a very satisfied user AND distributor of Skinny Fiber. I take exception with this “review”. First, your cons – 1. “Product website very confusing” – What is so confusing about the site? It includes a lot of great info. 2. “Lack of advice and clinical proof” – Skinny Fiber is available only through distributors for a reason – that is so you have ongoing support and advice from your distributor. As for clinical proof, all you have to do is ask your distributor for that information. We all have it. 3. “Lack of money-back guarantee” – Again, incorrect. We offer a 30-day, money-back guarantee if you do not see results. 4. “Ingredients not approved by the FDA” – Skinny Fiber is an ALL-NATURAL weigh loss supplement. The FDA does not regulate supplements.

    As for the claim that there is a choking hazard, there is such a potential issue with ANY pills. If you cannot swallow pills, Skinny Fiber can be opened over foods and ingested this way.

    Skinny Fiber works like no other product on the market. It first detoxes your system to prepare your body to lose weight. Yes, you may experience as part of the detox process, diarrhea, gas, etc. BUT it is temporary.

    I am curious to see if my comment will be posted. Typically, these “reviews” are written by people who have an ulterior motive, such as promoting another product. If you are going to “review” a product, may I suggest you actually research it before posting your “review”?

  26. Tina says:

    I started Skinny Fiber after losing 65 lbs on my own and hit a plateau that no matter what I did or didn’t do I could NOT get the scale to budge!! With the very first dose I noticed a change in my appetite. After 5 months I have lost 40 lbs. I’ve tried everything, and this is the first product that worked and that didn’t make my heart go crazy.

  27. Chrissy says:

    I don’t feel like you have provided accurate information here. Skinny Fiber is only available through a legitimate distributors website, it is available in numerous other countries in fact there are very few places it is not able to be shipped to. It does have a money back guarantee and I would love for you to talk to people who are currently taking it and are NOT distributors and provide some of the positive feedback on the product rather than the few negative feedbacks you have which are probably from people who didn’t take it consistently. I have lost almost 60″ off of my body in 3 months and I haven’t been working out, I feel amazing

  28. Jocelyn Marks says:

    My husband and I take up to 6 tablets a day each and we have lost 6kgs (13lbs) each in 2 months. We have had no side affects and we really dont feel hungry. My husband suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis, high cholesterol and is obese. His specialist has told him to keep taking skinny fiber as its working. :) I suffer from IBS, acid reflux, stomach ulcers and my acid reflux and ibs have settled down to almost nonexistent. SKINNY FIBER WORKS!!! I love my skinny fiber

  29. JoAnn Lancaster says:

    I have been on Skinny fiber for two months and have taken two pills twice daily as recommended. I have lost 10 pounds and 19 inches all with no side effects, except more energy, less headache, better sleeping, lowered blood pressure ( back to normal) and an overall feeling of well being. My daughter in law started taking it along with my son and husband. My daughter in law gas lost weight, my son is taking it to improve his overall health which it is doing and my husband has his diabetes and high blood pressure under control. These are all side effects I welcome and love. They also have an amazing support group that answers any and all questions. As far as it not being FDA approved, they do not approve vitamins and herbs as they are all natural and do not need approval. HMMM, skinny fiber must fall in that category. This is not a diet pill, it is fiber and a healthy way of life.

  30. MARLENE says:

    Im sorry but there isnt anything in skinny fiber that will hurt you its 100% all natural no added stimulates at all has tons of health benefits you dont have the jitters or racing heart. might want to do ur research a little better. i have lost over 40 inches and 25 pounds and have gotten off of 3 of my meds.

  31. P Watson says:

    I have used and yes I do sell this product. I suffer from high blood pressure and high cholesterol and my doctor has told me it is safe to take. I have lost 30 pounds and lost most of my food cravings without any side effects. There is a money back guarantee, so I suggest this site does a bit more research before giving any product a “thumbs down” review.

    I started using Skinny Fiber on Jan 20,2013. By May 31, I lost 50 pounds and a total of 25 inches. I have been heavy for over 20 years and tried many products. This is the first product that I’ve found that works. I wasn’t dieting or exercising while taking the product but it gives me energy so now I walk and I try to watch what I eat. I love Skinny Fiber…It has changed my life

    • Debbie King says:

      That is awesome Judy it has helped so many people my sister in law may get off her thyroid meds before long :) So happy for you and all the others this product has helped

  33. Ginger says:

    I have to say I love skinny fiber. It isn’t a quick fix, they tell you that, or atleast they should be telling you that up front, the girl I bought it off did. So you may not see significant changes in a week. There is an autoship option, but it isn’t hidden or anything, the site I ordered off of was very straight forward and easy. And the 100% money back guarantee is an awesome thing, you don’t get that with alot of others. I didn’t have a hard time navigating the site either.
    I’ve taken it since Jan and have lost almost 30 pounds and went from a size 20 to a size 13. I don’t even take it every day b/c I tend to forget.
    I’ve tried alot of other things, HCG, Hydroxcut, Phentrime(sp), pretty much you name it I’ve tried it and I couldn’t be happier with the product.

  34. Mark says:

    The website is not hard to order from nor do you have to be on autoship to qualify for the buy 3 get 3 offer. You really need to get your facts straight before you post them.

  35. Julieantonio.16 says:

    lol, shouldn’t you try to get at least some of the facts straight? Skinny Fiber works and articles like this will never change that. You shouldn’t write from the point of view that the people reading your article aren’t smart enough to do their own research and realize you are wrong. Skinny Fiber has a 30 day empty bottle refund policy, it doesn’t just assume you’ll feel full with fiber, although it does that too, and the enzymes are wonderful and amazing. I love Skinny Fiber, I haven’t felt this good in decades and I love knowing it’s good for me!

  36. VALERIE says:

    Please keep in mind that there are a lot of fake skinny fibers sold on ebay and amazon. please let your readers know that if they do buy from there, not to buy for under $59.95. the company does not sell under that price on auction sites or amazon.

    as far as everything else, some of the information is not correct. as lack of support. distributers give excellent support and answer all questions before sending customers to the website. i do not mind a negative review on a product that has done wonders for me, but please do not send your readers to amazon or ebay. a lot of those pills are safe and users do not know what they are taking! very unsafe!
    you can take a look at my personal website to see how i handle information apart from my support group

  37. Lynda says:

    I take Skinny Fiber and it does work, also I am now a distributor and you can not get the actual product on Amazon or EBay. The ones that sell on those sites buy a knock off product not the actual stuff. Just so people understand this product does work but youngsters buy from a distributor not from anyone on amazon or eBay .

  38. Bonnie Myers says:

    I have to laugh at this. First of all I’m a mom. Second, I’m a distributor due to the results. The reason I’m laughing is you don’t even read your own posts. You posted about Glucomannan.

    *copy pasted content removed*

    I do see you have changed your review. I looked at it after reading several comments. I use the product to help me loose weight. I don’t have to take antidepressants any longer. My Ulcer is gone and for the first time ever my Doctor has lowered my Thyroid medicine. And my hormones due to menopause are leveling out and no more hot flashes. All of this is in the first month of taking Skinny Fiber. I have an 11 year old daughter who has stomach trouble the doctor has not been able to correct are better. I have my doctor, a friends doctor (I was in the office with her) and a nutritionist all approve the use of Skinny fiber.

    As far as it being a pyramid scheme. I have made more money in this in a little over a month than I did in over a year in real estate. I don’t have anyone under me. I am just following the free training that is provided. So, if this is a scheme KEEP ME IN!

  39. Max DeBerg says:

    Lol, Can’t believe some of these comments, you are all making yourself look a little foolish don’t you think?
    It is so obvious that this is a pyramid scheme designed to make money for those at the top and everyone who has commented here is brainwashed to say the same things to protect their income source.
    The whole thing is set up to recruit more people below you so you make money off their sales, yes the ones who get in early make money off the misery of those below them. How do I know? Well my wife was conned into this by a “friend” before she eventually saw the light and got out. She never lost any weight and was only told to sign people up below her and get them promoting it. This is how a typical pyramid scheme works and will hopefully be made illegal very soon.
    Wake up and smell the coffee people, you are all brain washed members of a cult led by a crazy religious leader (in my opinion of course)

      • melissa says:

        I sell skinny fiber and I take it no I dont make a lot of money but I love the results I get from using it .I usually make enough from sales to cover my one bottle I am required to order every month to stay distributor .some months I might make some extra cash but the way I look at it im losing weight for free

    • Sharon Christman says:

      I get so sick of ppl referring to a *pyramid scheme*…………we sell PRODUCT,,,,,,,,,,,,we are NEVER trained *to get ppl under us promoting it* If you knew anything at all about the industry, you’s realize how ignorant your comments are. No wonder your wife didn’t make any money with a support system such as you for back up. If she TOOK the SF AS DIRECTED, she would have had results, but with a negative husband like you, I’m sure she just gave up.

    • Debbie King says:

      if selling a product actually 2 products is a pyramid scheme then our entire country is set up as a pyramid scheme corporate offices -Donald trump-Warren Buffet all pyramid schemes …No this is how all companies are run you have a president-vice pres- and on down to those that clean the bathrooms all get paid….I am so sorry your wife did not stay in as it may have just took longer for her to lose you have to look at the whole picture -your health- what you are consuming daily-water intake and so much more … I love my skinny fiber it has made me a healthier person and I feel great even when all around me got sick this winter I did not get sick due to eating right and my skinny fiber : ) Debbie King feel free to email me if you like dking (at) net1.net and we can look at her diet and health issues.

    • Heili says:

      I’m not brainwashed one bit! But I am losing weight, helping others lose weight and making more than I ever could dream of at an office job. As a single mother I get to stay home with my toddler and seriously, it’s only been five months so I’m no where near the top and I’m making over a grand a week with hardly anyone below me. I recruit no one. They come to me and want information to enroll! It’s an amazing product and company. Shame your wife didn’t stick to it – by now she’d be making a ton of money and probably be at her goal weight.

    • LaWanza says:

      You are completely incorrect! I have been apart of Milne prograns before that I would consider a pyramid scheme. But from the FIRST week I began promoting, I made money! You don’t have to sign anyone under you to make money in SBC! Heck I don’t even promote signing up, I promote the product. Most distributors start selling after they have seen for themselves what the product can do. So clearly you have been misinformed!

  40. Sharon Christman says:

    you need to get your facts straight before posting a negative review. SF doesn’t need FDA approval, It’s NOT a drug…………..we have clinicals to back up the product. I would post the link here, but you’d probably remove it. SF is NOT magic, and we tell ppl what to expect. It will make you feel fuller, it won’t take your appetite away completely (you need to eat to lose) Over time, it WILL curb or eliminate cravings. There are no stimulants in SF so you may not *feel* it working, but it is definitely working! I am losing slower than I have with diets before, but the great thing is, I AM NOT ON ANY DIET. I eat what I want, when I want and I am STILL losing. I LOVE THAT! My 35 year battle with IBS is history…….I am not experiencing pain from fybromyalgia any longer, and I feel better than I have in 30 years! You ppl need to do better research. I don’t know how you had trouble *navigating the website* when a 10 year old could do it…………..I just had my grandson go to my site and process an order as if he were buying it…………HE MANAGED with no problems! And how could you miss the fact that we have a 30 day money back guarantee??? And you are totally wrong about having to be on autoship to take advantage of any of the special pricing (re: Buy2/get 1 free; or buy 3 get 3 free). There are no such requirements. I would suggest you go back and do another, less biased review, but this time base it on facts.

    • Martha says:

      They also say it is sold from several levels of distributors and that is not true…We never touch the customers product they recieve it direct from the distribution center…It is not safe to purchase from an auction site such as Amazon or Ebay…only order from a Skinny body care website to insure you get a REAL product that does come with a 30 day empty bottle guarantee :)

  41. Peggy Roberts Way says:

    I have got some age on me so I can TRUTHFULLY SAY I have been on every weight loss every invented…and then some ! NOTHING and I DO MEAN NOT ONE SINGLE THING has ever helped me like Skinny Fiber has ! I started taking it in January and as of yesterday I have now lost 51 lbs……..and get this….I sit at the computer all day with ZERO exercise ! I WILL start exercising to firm it all up but I just wanted to let you all know what Skinny Fiber does with NO exercise !
    My son is off all of his diabetes meds but one and has at this time cut way back on it. Myself, I am diabetic too and am off insulin, and been downgraded 3 times off of my other meds. So we both just have one to go, and that one is definitely on it’s way OUT ! :)
    And you know, there is NOTHING TO LOSE ! Skinny Fiber is 100% 30 day money back guaranteed, no questions asked ! It can’t GET any better than this !!!! :)

  42. Sherry says:

    I just dont understand why people dont just buy the Glucomannan at the health foods store. Its under $20. I use that and 5HTP and get the same result for 1/3 the cost of Skinny Fiber.

    • Lynette says:

      Hi Sherry, can you tell me what 5HTP is? Sorry, I’m reading through all of these comments and I’m not really up on health food items. Obviously from the looks of me! LOL
      Thanks in advance.
      Lynette

    • Carol says:

      There is more to Skinny Fiber than just Glucomannan. It also contains Caralluma, Cha Da Bugre (not sure I spelled that right) and 7 or 8 digestive enzymes. Each has their own role in helping you lose weight.

  43. Terri says:

    Several months ago I joined a group that was supposed to be dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle and weight loss. I soon discovered that it was also operated by a woman who sold Skinny Fiber. Thus, through the open forum of the group, I was able to learn a great deal about the product via personal accounts of SF fans…and I must agree with Max in that it is definitely a money-making-operation first and foremost because the rest is really just common sense and the placebo effect.
    1) Drinking a solid 64 ounces of water a day (particularly before meal times) will of course make you feel full faster/limit your appetite. My mom started that 3 years ago and has used it to go down 8 dress sizes.
    2) People who take SF are told to stay away from soda/sugary drinks, limit carb intake/processed foods, eat 4-6 small meals a day, and to be more active. Combine that with 64 ounces of water and it sounds like you’ve finally managed to get yourself on a diet plan. The only difference is that people are afraid to break this one because it might inhibit the “magic” of the SF.
    3) Many people who take SF claim that it has helped with IBS and thyroid problems among other things…A background in healthcare tells me that this is more likely a result of the diet and healthier lifestyle that the SF requires of you, not the SF itself.

    • Natalie says:

      I’m with you Terri and Max. I believe it’s just one massive money making scam. No doubt it will only be a matter of time before it’s unveiled as such.
      I myself was suckered into purchasing the product, after joining several Facebook pages dedicated to ‘healthy living’ yet run by SF distributors. I started to smell a rat when, after about a month, I had put on weight. With no dietary changes except for consuming and bucket load of water every day and swallowing the tablets. When I started asking questions on one Facebook page things became apparent to me that the distributors clearly have no knowledge of the process behind how the product works. Everyone who replied to me on the page claiming they were having success had changed their diet and were exercising more. I challenged that by pointing out the obvious in that anyone would of course lose weight by doing that! To add to that, the ‘expert’ advice received from my distributor after first receiving the product was only to increase water intake, try to do a few days of cardio a week, and to follow a ‘sensible’ diet. Again, I challenged that a sensible diet is subjective and could be anything from low fat, to low sugar, to low carb. So which one was it? No one could answer. I too offered the theory that the pill was acting as a placebo. Their response? Remove me and my comments from the Facebook page (was the husband of the distributor who did it too – wouldn’t want the wifey to lose business/money now, would we?!!!).
      After that I contacted Skinny Body Care to give feedback on that experience, and to ask TWO questions. One: How do I utilise the money back guarantee? And Two: if I actually decided, after finding out the process of how to get my money back, to continue with the product, how could I do so without going through the same distributor. Their reply? “You are welcomed (yes, ‘welcomed’) to purchase through another distributor by using a different email address and credit card”. That was it!!! I replied back to ask AGAIN how to apply for the refund, and have still not received a response (that was weeks ago now). So their money back guarantee is a SCAM right there in itself
      As for the product. I think it’s a scam for a few reasons. Sure, the fiber (and the copious amounts of water you have to take with it) will fill you up. But read a little into that particular affect fiber has on the body, and you’ll soon realise it’s not a good thing for your stomach to be stretched so much!!! The result of such stretching then requires more product/food to fill the gap! Their solution? Pop more pills!!! Or on the flippside, what’s going to happen when you stop taking the pills? You’ll need to fill that whole with food, that’s what!! And therein starts the vicious Skinny Fiber cycle again – people will assume they ‘need’ Skinny Fiber to keep the pounds off, and buy more product. It’s a scamming company’s DREAM!
      Not to mention that the testimonials for EVERY Facebook page are the same. Some pages have tens of thousands of followers, yet very few photographic testimonies (of their own). Why is that? I’ll tell you why. It’s probably because they’re fake. I came across a comment on a Blog recently, while doing some Google searching on whether Skinny Fiber is a scam, which was from an ex-distributor who claimed her conscious finally got the better of her and she shut down her Facebook page and stopped sellingthe

    • Pam says:

      Amen, Terri! I can’t believe the number of people who don’t recognize water + healthy diet + activity (WITH or WITHOUT Skinny Fibre) obviously = weight loss! It’s. marketing ploy. Period. If you need more fibre to assist in feeling full prior to meals try fruit, increased vegetable intake, bran etc. Create your own disciplines regime…for FREE! Now there’s a novel, healthy idea.

  44. stacy says:

    Are all the positive comments on here from distributors? I find it fishy when there is not one negative comment on here.

    • stacy says:

      oops I guess I didn’t read enough of them

      • Tracy says:

        Stacy I wouldn’t sell for them nor ever use their product again. I purchased in bulk and like many others sold on Ebay. I didn’t know there was a clause about not selling. The product is expensive if purchased individually and a lot of people can’t afford it. The Skinnybodycare folks tell people don’t go to Ebay or Amazon because of fakes. That is BS, because 9 out of 10 people selling are trying to make a profit. I got banned and I learned the hard way that it is forbidden. There are over 80 people selling. Has Skinny Fiber helped me? Yeah I’ve lost a few pounds but nothing significant and I exercise every single day and post menopausal. If anything, it has made my hair and nails grow. I agree most of the people on here selling the positives on here are Distributors. Never again.

    • Jenny Jackson says:

      I have been taking skinny fiber for four three days, and it gave me horrible stomach cramps!!! I won’t be taking them anymore!!!!

  45. Angela says:

    Haha I’ll give you a negative comment! I am in the process of returning the garbage. I did everything I was suppose to, exercise, eat good, drink water. …took the capsules at least half hour before meals and I still ate the same and was hungry an hour after I ate. After taking the capsules my stomach would feel so uncomfortable and I can’t express how much gas I had. It completely backed me up and I had a very difficult time going. The ordering process was kind of a pain but I had high hopes! I was only able to literally speak with someone one time to verify shipment but after that, the line kept cutting me off. I had to email them and wait for answers. Very irritated right now. Oh, and just for fun, as a little test, they claimed that the product expands tremendously, so I put it in a cup of water. Up to 10 hours later still checking throughout the day, no significant difference whatsoever. What a waste…..

    • Angela says:

      Oh I forgot the biggest annoyance! I put on 10 lbs! Like I didn’t already have enough to lose!

      • Kenneth says:

        Angela, body chemistry varies…sometimes what people do not understand is that you must detoxify your system before taking any fat burner…detoxification removes all those toxins and makes the fat burner works…i do have such issue from someone and i advised the person to detoxify using some natural herbal detoxifiers from Traditional chinese medicine like Constilease and gastrifort and the effect was wonderful…so find some good detoxifier and detoxify for like 5 to 10 days and try skinny fiber again…you will confirm its ok…thanks

  46. April says:

    Those who are crying “PYRAMID SCHEME” have no idea even what one is. And shame on the blog authors for labeling Multi-Level Marketing as a “pyramid scheme”. Product is sold, commissions are paid. A “pyramid” is your basic corporate structure. Only the guy at the top can make the most money. The ones at the base of the pyramid (peon employees) have no chance of making the same amount of money, no matter how hard they work. I invite any one who claims MLM to by a pyramid scheme to read the book “The Flip Flop CEO” — it’s written exactly for people who don’t understand the industry.

    • Rosemarie says:

      Well said April and shame on this watch dogger for saying so as well, she obviously knows nothing about the company and how we support and help people with weight problems, I think anyone wanting to write a watch do report should have to take the product as well, to feel the results not just look for bad comments and then write her pro’s and con’s from “research”… Again once said corporate america is a pyramid scheme…shame on you for putting such negetivatey associated with a product helping more than not not everything works the same or 100% for everyone

  47. Charla says:

    it is so obvious that the first 36 people to post praise on here are the same person as the “positive” posts all came within3-4 minutes apart on the same day. Silly. This product is a joke. It is all about marketing and nobody really knows if it works or cares to be honest. I know people on the matrix and NONE of them even use the product! They are all in it for the get rich quick thinking that never happens by the way. The product really is just a pyramid scheme. TRUST ME! I know first hand. i refused to buy into it but have watched these friends of mine bust their butts trying to make it sell! JOKE!

    • LaWanza says:

      Now… If you never bought the product or sold the product, how can u know first hand what is going on? What you’ve post is an opinion based on what you think, not on any concrete evidence you have.

      There are two truths about my journey with Skinny Fiber. I am losing weight and I am making money.

      I also have a full time job in the corporate world. My job is the pyramid scheme! Clearly those touting pyramid scheme have no clue what it is.

      My job is owned by investors. And only the CEO, Coo, VP’s and such make real money those of us that are managers and lower, who do all the work busting my ass 50+ hours a week, don’t see anywhere near what they make. We don’t even have that possibility as they at an elite team of ppl. And it’s the same with every corporate job everywhere.

      SBC is definitely NOT what I just described.

  48. Peter says:

    My wife is on this Skinny fiber for three weeks and it is helps her arthritis pain and backpain she has come off all the pain meds now after a year taking them she’s also last 10 cm off her waste.

    I don’t recommend stopping any prescribed meds talk to you dr.

  49. Louise says:

    I am a distributor for Skinny FIber based in NEW ZEALAND! This product is sold worldwide. There are thousands of distributors around the world and they are easily found over facebook and the internet. I’ve been on SF myself for 4 weeks and I’ve lost 4kg after I hit a plateau on my weight loss. I’ve sold hundreds of bottles to hundreds of very very happy customers! A couple didn’t lose kg’s, but one lost 9cm off her hips in the first week. I don’t need to TRY and make it sell, because the results speak for themselves. Funny how Charla above says “I refused to buy it”, yet is on here posting information. And I also noticed that there’s an advert in here for another weight loss pill….I find that funny. Before you go writing a blog about a certain product, perhaps the try it before you open your mouth mentality needs to kick in. SF works! And for the customers mine where it hasn’t worked, it’s because they didn’t take it regularly. Skinny Fiber will ONLY work IF and only if you actually take it. No use claiming it doesn’t work when you keep forgetting.

  50. Stephanie says:

    I signed up to be a distributor early in July and I live in Canada. I purchased the buy 3 get 3 free, which cost near $230.00 after p/h and exchange. The day I signed up I created a group. I was guided by the upline to post recipes, stock photos that they share and testimonies. I said that I could not say I love a product and be telling my freinds it is great when I had yet to try the product.
    The 30 day money back is based on date of sale, I received the product the 3rd week in August, 6 weeks after I ordered and paid for it. Guarantee was expired !
    I watched secret groups that I was privy to . One post was looking for support to come to this site and write a positive testamonial, looks like a great number of distributors did just that. At times a DT(distributor)will ask others in the secret group to help her with a customer. So other DT’s go on that persons page and post positive comments about SF.
    For the most part I think the people involved truly believe what they are doing is supporting a great product.and the people in their group. Many truly believe that they are helping people.
    Call it Pyrimid or Multi level marketing, call it what you want. I call it Stupid me for being So gullible ! I ended up with one more bottle, while trying to decide if I wanted to sell this stuff, I am out over $300.00. With good conscious I can not sell this .

    • Ann Wright says:

      Ty, I have reservations about this product. I to noticed All the distributors posted the same information. I to agree that it’s a Challenge to navigate the distributors page. This is the 1st legit comment, I’ve seen posted about this miracle guaranteed weight loss product.

    • Tracy says:

      Stephanie you are not alone. I pretty much did the same thing but I wasn’t aware of a do not sell clause on Ebay and my website was shut down. There is no 800# to call and here’s what they told me.

      Hello,

      Your account was closed due to violation of our policies and procedures with regards to eBay. It is permanently closed and cannot be reactivated.

      Thank you and have a great day,

      Thank you and have a great day,
      SBC Support

      As you can see these folks aren’t very professional and I had to find out from another source about why they did to me. There are over 80 right now selling their product on ebay and below cost. I think many people are like me, trying to make money.

  51. Jackie Croasdale says:

    I have been on Skinny Fiber for 6 weeks. On the 4th week I got diarrhea. It was bad. I got stomach cramps too! I stopped taking SF and the diarrhea went away. At first I thought maybe I had a tummy bug. I went back on SF and BANG…… diarrhea came back. Some one on a SF site asked if I had IBS, well I didn’t have it before using SF but I think I may have it now using SF!! I am really disappointed as it does fill me up so I eat less and I have lost 7LBS but I cannot take the constant toilet trips!

    • Jenny Jackson says:

      I stopped taking them. I took them for 4 days and it gave me stomach cramps that kept me awake during the night. I was about to go to the doctor because it was so painful. But the pain went away when I stopped taking them.

  52. Michelle says:

    Today is day 4 on SF and I’ve lost 2 Pds already. But since yesterday having bad stomach pain and diarrhea. Thought it was the grapes I had but now wondering if its from SF. It helps soooo much with my appetite. Might have to rethink this.

  53. Shirley says:

    <3 I have been taking SF for 4 weeks now & have lost 25 inches!!!!! 5 inches off each thigh, 5 inches off my waist, 2 inches off each upper arm, 1 inch off my neck, etc. Skinny FIber WORKS!!! I have not dieted or exercised. I do have problems swallowing pills but these are capsules. A distributor told me to open the capsules & sprinkle them in yogurt or a couple spoons of applesauce & then drink at least 8 oz of water. I signed up & bought the buy 3 get 3 free so it's only $30 per bottle. I have been trying every diet there is for most of my life. Skinny Fiber is a blessing & to me it is a miracle. By the way learn the difference between MLM & pyramids. This is MLM. I am so thankful for everyone in this company. They support one another & all customers & all people trying to lose weight or get healthier. That is the purpose of the support groups. We offer weight loss tips, recipes, motivation, etc. All the info about Skinny Fiber can be found in the files in our groups. We have nothing to hide & nothing to lie about. There are billions of customers & distributors who use the product & can & do attest to the remarkable benefits. Also I had hurt my knee & had excruciating pain every time I stood up for over 5 years. After taking Skinny Fiber for 2 weeks my knee pain is gone!!! I love my Skinny FIber!!!! <3

  54. Cherie says:

    Skinny Fiber does NOT work. I have yet to find someone who is not a Skinny Fiber representative with a positive review. The woman I purchased it through goes on and on and on about how wonderful it is but her latest FB profile pic has her looking larger than ever. I sent mine back for a refund nearly three weeks ago and am still waiting.

  55. elaine says says:

    2 weeks into it..

    No cons from me.

  56. elaine says says:

    Where’s my comment I just wrote?

  57. Chad R. says:

    I’m not one to criticize others, but I must speak out and say that this post about Skinny Fiber is completely ridiculous!

    May cause side effects? Anything you put in your mouth could cause side effects. The all natural ingredients in Skinny Fiber come from plants. You don’t get a better food source than that. While I understand that it may not be for everyone and that i may not work for everyone, there certainly has been an incredible amount of people who have used it and lost weight. Lots of weight. My wife, in less than 3 weeks, has lost 22 pounds, and I have lost 13 on Skinny Fiber. We have not changed one thing about our routine which is NOT one of exercise.

    Your use of the term “Pyramid Scheme” would have you indicating that SBC is operating illegally which is flat out a LIE! If you are spreading something that is NOT true in this article and the people in this comment section are reading that’s messed up! Speak the dang truth! Network marketing has been around for decades and has changed the lives of countless people who have worked hard in them. There are boatloads of people that get into an MLM business and they do absolutely nothing and think they are going to get rich! Those are usually the people that make stupid comments about it. You have to work hard at anything in your life for it to work and pay you.

    Ignorance and lies create NOTHING good! I’ve just wasted 30 minutes of my life reading this stupid page and making this comment. What a waste!

    You say here that cha de bugre is a stimulant. i checked on Web MD and they say that it is not a stimulant. Which is it?

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi April,
      Whether Cha De Bugre is a stimulant depends on the amount consumed. As there is no indication how much is included in this supplement then its difficult to know the effect (if any) of this ingredient.
      Kind regards,

    Lol wow i may have been stupid enough to try this product until I read Peggy’s story so basically what you are saying its near enough cured you of diabetes ( if your nearly of all your meds including insulin) I don’t think so, sorry not medically possible you see if their was a pill to make your body start making insulin again diabetes would be gone this pill would have been snapped up by the medical world. So for the sellers to come out with this rubbish to sell it I wouldn’t go near it

    • KimK says:

      Clare,
      Please read up on Type 2 diabetes. This type of diabetes is the most common and a patient usually comes off of insulin once weight is under control. Kim, RN

  60. Barbara says:

    This product is a scam as is my distributor. I am a registered nurse and took SF exactly as directed. I lost NO weight. I asked for them to honor the 30 day money back guaranty. I’ve been asking for directions on where to send the bottles and get a refund. I’ve sent 15 emails over six weeks. The only replies I received were rude, insulting, condescending and very unprofessional. I still don’t have the return information. My distributor was gettingskinnywithheather.
    Run away from this product and distributors!

    • LaWanza says:

      Hi Barbara,

      I know Heather! She’s definitely not a scam artist. I’m sorry for what you have endured and will take this info back to Heather and the rest of SBC.

  61. Ursula says:

    Hi, the question I have is I’m taking high blood pressure and cholesterol pills. Would taken Skinny Fiber cause any problems.

  62. Mrs. Angry says:

    Hi,

    I ordered from a distribitor on facebook by the name of Kelli Miller, and she has a group Lose the Jelly with Kelli, I have yet to receive my product and its been over three months. Is this a scam, and who can i call to file a complaint?

    • Watchdog Staff says:

      Hi,
      We would strongly recommend firstly contacting the distributor directly if you haven’t already. We wouldn’t say its a scam, without making excuses for the distributor there could be a number or reasons, but 3 months is an awfully long time! Have you received any tracking information for your order?
      If you don’t get any luck with the distributor you may need to contact the company directly or speak to your bank.
      Regards,
      Diet Pills Watchdog Team

    • Maggie says:

      Definitely check with your Distributor first, but a tracking number is provided as soon as the orders are shipped. You can find that information by logging into your account. It shows details on when it was shipped and where it was delivered. There is also customer support contact info on there. 3 months sounds like an awful long time to receive the order. I got mine in 2 days. My daughter got hers in 7 days… again, I would contact your distributor first about it and they can help you and point you in the right direction.

    • Jill Lettice says:

      Hi Mrs. Angry. I too, ordered from Kelli. And I had to wait a very long time too, well over 2 months. HOWEVER…she came through for me in a huge way. Listen…I was very frustrated – anxious to receive my SF and get started. I was upset about my 20 lb. weight gain due to my new birth control and just wanted to get a grip on this problem before I gained more. I ordered from Kelli around the same time you did. Here is the thing: SHE IS HUMAN!!! She has a family, she has some serious/permanent illnesses (sorry Kelli) and she has children who are also not well. She simply thought an order went in to the company when it didn’t. I, too, sent her one message after another, basically hounding her for my stuff!!!! And she was VERY professional and apologetic. And…..she got it taken care of – I received my SF as soon as she could rectify the situation. Not only that, she is sending me a gift basket as an apology, including something special for my son, an avid Spider-Man fan. What I am asking is this….I KNOW how you feel! I truly do! I was soooooooo angry, for lack of a better word…but I stepped back, took a look at the importance of it all, tried to put her myself in her shoes and show some compassion, and decided to cut Kelli a break. After all, it wasn’t her fault that I gained the weight and needed SF to begin with! LOL! She is offering an aid to get it under control. If we never saw the SF site on FB, we would still be struggling. And her product DOES work!!! I wanted to lose 25 lbs, and after waiting FOREVER…I have already lost 10!! Thank you SF and thank you, Kelli!. What I am saying, Mrs. Angry is please please please be patient….IT IS WORTH IT!!!! And please try to remove Kelli’s name….she doesn’t deserve to have her name and reputation trashed publicly for one mistake. We ALL make mistakes and have bad times in life. We just ask forgiveness and move on, I am asking you to do the same for Kelli. You will be so thrilled, I promise!

    • LaWanza says:

      You definitely have to contact your distributor! You should have received the product 7-10 days after purchase or sooner. Get with Kelli to straighten it out.

  63. nicole says:

    skinny fiber is a corrupt company , there is a distributer that is doing free promotions offering an extra 3 free bottles if you sign under her , after you do she blocks you and starts a new promotion this month is a lap top i have all my screen shots proving she is doing this and the company does not care, they are lining thier pockets at the expence of innocent people buyer beware , and the pills dont work they reek of pepper i doubt they even have in them what they say

  64. jennifer kaufman says:

    sounds to me if kelli has so many problems she shouldn’t be in the business, I have a friend on fb who told me it would cost me 10.00 to start selling boy did she lie she brags about everything she buys from the sells of sf she like to post before and after photos and in these photos he people are either 2 different people or they haven’t lost much weight even the person who is a distributor and I can’t see no weight lose on her or very little weight lose those on here that are bragging of how well it works has to be a distributor . I was just on the website and found nothing on there that would make me buy it first it cost 59.95 a bottle, second not much info on the ingredients. I drink mostly coffee and still gain weight so I just don’t see this working people who say it works well good for them but if there is a product that may have to come from a third party because it is controlled on how much you can get from that country so you don’t know what your actually getting. you can get a fiber subustute any where and another thought from all the people I have heard from on this say that they have had to go from strictly drinking water which means your not getting the stuff your body needs so therefore you do loose weight and if this is such a miracle pill that not only does it help you loose weight but all medical problems go away why doesn’t doctors prescribe it for everything that ails you and why doesn’t the fda approve it for all these matters.thyriod problems are very serious issues that need to be regulated by a dr not by some magic pill I know there are a lot of people with thyroid issues that would find away to buy this product if they thought it would work and being diabetic yes weight lose is a big issue but you still have to get your body to make it own insulin no matter what type of diabetic you are I have been around enough of them to know every thing we put in our body has a side effect to it. oh yeah don’t forget the water pills you’ll have to take to balance out the water weight you’ll gain from drinking so much water there is no magic pill the best way to loose weight is eat the right foods and exercise

  65. A former SF Distributor says:

    I was a member of SF, what I didn’t like is being told by the person who signed me up to use some of her pictures off her page to advertized on my FB wall. When I saw her, she has gotton cubby. I’ve used the pills and if you don’t take it as prescribed or don’t eat exactly 30 minutes after taken the medication, you will eat more. I am sticking to old school, proper eating habits & exercise. I cannot sell or recommend this product. I would like to see the people who are selling this product to be their own spokesperson.

  66. Jennifer Montemayor says:

    I am 5ft 190 lbs. In October 2012 my gallbladder was removed and in November 2012 my left ovary was removed. I have gained so much weight and dr says to eat fiber but it only bloats me. I tried Ace and itworks but nothing worked. Im so scared to waste anymore money. I was just told I may have IBS. I have a very slow digestive system and back up. I also have left abdominal pain with spasms. I wonder if this will work for me.
    I will be starting Herbalife 2 shakes a day with snakes and one meal. How would I take this if im only eating one full meal a day and will it help my digestive system?
    I had a tummy tuck but cant even tell anymore.

  67. Dave says:

    Seems all the reviews above are from marketers/distributors of the product LOL! So obvious. The product is a waste, period. Get natural organic fiber products to supplement your meals. No need for these expensive and risky pills! Just a fancy marketing and packaging gimmick with MLM scheme.

  68. Dave says:

    It’s sold via a very generous affiliate program. Out of the $59.95 you pay for the product, the person promoting it gets $40. This would encourage a lot of false testimonials. BOGUS product.

    Still, if you feel you need something like this then just buy glucomannan powder. It’s super cheap! You can buy it at any drugstore, Walmart, or online and a month’s supply will cost about $10 – probably a lot less.

    100% the majority of above testimonials are ALL fake. What do you expect from a company that needs to sell a health product via Multi Level Marketing!

    • LaWanza says:

      This information you posted is incorrect! Boy if it were correct, who wouldn’t sell this product! There are 8 ways we get paid, but the one u stated isn’t one of them. It’s easy to say bad things abt a company or product when you don’t know abt either.

  69. Donald says:

    Let me first start by saying, I feel for those who have been struggling with weight issues, have tried just about everything, only to gain it all the weight back, or the method did not work at all. “People”, there is no magic pill, and probably never will be, at least not in our lifetime. All un-natural methods (diets, pills..etc…) require a lifelong commitment, and great expensive to continue for life, but unfortunately usually ends up in failure, and gaining all your weight back, plus more.
    In most cases, our bodies are designed to look after themselves, if we let it. As an old saying goes, “we are what we eat” holds very true. With the proper diet (not weight loss diet), regular exercise (moderate), your body can usually maintain, and give you the results you want. “Take care of your body, and it will take care of you”. I speak through experience, I’m a Diabetic, and several years back was told that if I did not start looking after myself, I would be no longer. I was on several meds, which I hated. I decided to take control, I started eating/drinking healthier, and introduced daily physical activity into my life style. I am happy to say that this became a normal part of my life. I no longer think of dieting, my body has become accustomed to my new life style. Losing weight, and keeping it off for life is a life style change, and no pill can, or will do that for you in a way which is healthy. The product mentioned in this post, or even other products may work, but the success will only be temporary, they are designed to fail. Maintaing a healthy life style takes work, but the outcome will be very rewarding, and satisfying. When all fails, listen to your body, it knows best. Wishing you all the best in whatever method you chose.
    Stay Healthy!

      Thanks Donald for your informative reply, some very good advice in there. Here at Diet Pills Watchdog we would never recommend or advise supplements for a long-term strategy. They are tools that can help when used correctly.
      Thanks again for taking the time to post.

  70. Yvonne Napier says:

    Can I take the skinny fiber if I am on coumidin (blood thinner)?

    • Charlene says:

      My best suggestion is take the ingredients to your doctor & they will be able to answer your question. As with any product, it best to verify with your doctor if it will work with the medication. If your doctor gives you the ok, please contact me & I would be more then happy to send you my link to order. Thank you

    • Tammy says:

      Did you ever find out about taking skinny fiber with Coumadin?

  71. Anne Thomlison says:

    When I submitted my order for Skinny Fibre, my credit card was declined. A pop-up instructed me to fax a copy of my credit card front and back to a phone number. This makes me very suspicious. I have never been declined when ordering online before. If they are so concerned about fraud why do they not offer PayPal? Are they really a legitimate company?

    • melissa says:

      They are a legit company I have friends and family that have purchased from them and never had any problems .I sell skinny fiber and I also take it and I have never had any problems taking or ordering

  72. melissa says:

    I have been using and selling skinny fiber since sept 2013.I have never had any issues taking it or selling it I have lost weight and inches .it is not a Miracle pill .as for ordering you have the option to sign up for auto ship at check out BUT IS NOT REQUIRED.

  73. Barbara Tapia Bond says:

    I don’t know who this watchdog group is or where it stems from, but, Skinny Fiber is hardly a scam. I started taking it and have since September 1, 2013. I have lost half of the weight I wanted to lose, and that is a lot and a number of inches. I have changed my eating habits a little bit but not much, and I don’t exercise at all. I want to start but haven’t been able or had the time. I became a distributor because I know the product works and believe me I have tried everything!! No it’s not a miracle pill but it does work. I have one person signed up on auto ship and she is a new distributor who also started it and it worked for her so she decided she wanted to share the product. People reorder from me all the time, not because they are on autoship but because they love the product. It’s a persons choice and I help people in my group no matter what they are doing to lose weight.

  74. Jennifer Ford (auntiejen) says:

    Some one said it above, every business is a pyramid! There is always someone at the top and the people below that person doing the work and as it grows, more people are under them! They use the term “pyramid scheme” to scare people without doing ANY research! If this person wanted to know more about Skinny Fiber he certainly could have FOUND the information. Its out there for him to find! Anytime there is success, there are always haters. I have only been taking Skinny Fiber since Thanksgiving and have lost 22 pounds. That’s going through Thanksgiving and Christmas my first 4 weeks!! And without doing much in the way of changing my lifestyle other than drinking more water. So DIET PILLS WATCHDOG!! You blew it this time! There is no side effects….no jittery feelings, no sleepless nights, in fact I finally DO sleep!! Anyone wishing more information can find me on facebook and follow or friend me and I will be happy to tell them all about it!!

  75. felicity says:

    I feel very ashamed to be reading this very poorly informed article. I assure you that you cant just search the internet for skinny fiber and then take what u get as fact.
    let me start by saying that im almost finished my 90 day challenge and I haven’t lost one single kilo. In fact ive put two on. What I have lost is an entire clothing size. More inches then you can imagine and so much better health. I suffer from pcos and a heap of other health set backs. My cycles have now been regular for 3 months! 3 28 day cycles! Its unheard of. My sleep is incredible and i haven’t had a cold or flu all summer. Which because of my poor immunity from insulin resistance I use to get one every week. It is so much more than just an appetite suppressant as you claim. And anything sold through ebay or amazon is probably fake- research would have told you this. My sil and bff both have pcos. They have both lost 50cms this month alone! My bff even messaged me yesterday telling me all about her ovulation.
    It is an amazing suppliment. And coming from someone who gets side effects from water. To get nothing but the detox effects was amazing too. I have tried most things on the market. And I am a personal trainer. I am actually building muscle and losing fat. And when I wake uo in the morning I am truely hungry. Not emotionaly hungry any more! Thank god for skinny fiber. I suggest OP to try skinny fiber before judging so harshly.

  76. felicity says:

    Oh and as for auto ship. I assure you it is purely for convienience. No fees if there isnt enough money in my account. And I can cancel at any time.

  77. PamD says:

    I appreciate the watchdog report on this topic and tend to agree that the advertising is entirely too vague for the consumers who are concerned with the contents of what we put into our bodies. Less educated people are more easily satisfied with generalized statements and promises. “It works” “I lost weight without exercise” “You could choke on any pill” “It fills you up” “It curbs your hunger” – all magic in a pill and the science behind how doesn’t matter to the people who aren’t interested in the education. The consequences over the long term are not important to the people who don’t want the education but are only interested in a magic pill and instant results. Just look at all the responses running to the defense of the product, citing exactly the same vague claims without any real reference data, nutritional data, research data, etc. They defend it so valiantly, why? 1. Sales. 2. They believe what they read or heard somewhere because they want what they read/heard to be true. 3. Increasing their fiber and water intake, in conjunction with consuming fewer calories resulted in a weight loss.

    Hmmm. Look, I use to weigh 311 pounds at 5’5″ tall. I was once that uneducated person wanting to believe the next miracle. I tried so many different pills, shakes, tricks – eager and excited every time – just sure it would work every single time. Truth is, I always lost a few pounds – sometimes as much as 40 or 50 pounds. How? Why? Because the “new magical thing” I was trying was a piece of motivation that got me to try. I behaved better. I cared. I put effort into it – maybe not at the gym but I paid more attention to what I was doing to my body.

    I went so far as to have gastric bypass – got down to 116 pounds – a size 2. Stayed that way for 8 years. But the long term consequences of gastric bypass – the stuff they don’t really sell or advertise with the magic of gastric bypass was not worth it. It wasn’t worth dying. I had the surgery reversed and began gaining weight again. I’m not overweight, I’m a healthy size 10. I tell you all of this to share with you what I have learned from all of it. I can attest to it. I am a real living person with absolutely nothing to sell you.

    The truth is, we are a product of our own investment in ourselves. It comes down to input/output, plain and simple. If you consume more than you burn, you will store and carry the excess in weight. Period. There’s no magic. Portion control matters. Control your portions = control your consumption of calories. Move your body to burn the calories you consume. It’s really that cut and dry. Like it or not.

    Fiber is not new. In order for Fiber to be properly digested, you need to consume plenty of water. There are reasons you must consume water with fiber, such as: fiber absorbs water and carries through your digestive system. Consuming high amounts of fiber without enough water can result in a blockage. (I suspect the warnings on a choking hazard with Skinny Fiber has more to do with the possibility of the capsule coming open before it has moved far enough down the throat and into the stomach, expanding in an area that may result in blocked airflow into the lungs – a risk that can be mitigated by drinking sufficient water to push the pill/contents lower into the body to avoid this risk.) Filling the stomach with fiber and water will leave less space available for food calories – and with space in the stomach filled with “something”, odds are you are going to feel less hunger pain than with nothing in your stomach. The drawback to filling the stomach with large amounts of fiber and water, then topping it off with food within a short period of time (less than an hour) is that you are maintaining a large stomach space. When that space does eventually become empty, you are going to be hungry and your body will want to fill that space. It will require more calories (or more food or “product”) to fill that space to the point of feeling satisfied. So here we are back to portion control. Maintaining portion control will also help you to maintain a stomach space more proportionate to the requirements for a healthy body.

    When the doctors were convinced that I had IBS, they consistently told me to eat more fiber, drink plenty of water and eat more roughage such as salads and veggies. Fiber is all over the market in many forms (Metamucil, Miralax, Fiber capsules, etc) – the original most pure, healthy and digestible form is food. Consuming more fiber and increasing your water intake will likely help with IBS symptoms. SF isn’t the cure – in this case, it’s just a more costly method of delivery with some added unknowns.

    I realize this is not what the SF sales groups want to hear. I realize this is not want anyone desperate to lose weight quickly wants to hear. I was once just as rebellious. I wanted to fight it too. It is what it is. What makes the topic such a hot, debatable topic is what people are willing to do and NOT willing to do – what people are willing to accept and NOT willing to accept. Over time, we grow and learn – often the hard way when it comes to weight loss. The SF phase will be one looked back upon just like all the others by a lot of people smacking themselves in the foreheads and shaking their heads. In the end, it comes full circle back to the truth that we run from. It’s input/output. Just like a bank account. Plain and simple.

  78. Amy says:

    I can assure that Skinny Fiber does work for MOST. We are all different so there are those out there that it will not work for. Skinny Fiber appears on lifetimes ” Balancing Act” and I personally know people that it has worked for and its unfair to state that its all in thrit mind so they make better choices because people I know lost the weight without changing their diet and were unable to exercise because of disability. Anyone who wants more info thats correct may find me on fb…Amy Jeffers. They DO offer a money back guarantee within 30 days because they know it will start working in a couple days by detoxing your body and getting it ready to change.

  79. Natural Eater says:

    Don’t be relying on a pill to lose weight and/or control hunger. Even if this product is “legit” why not try the healthy way? I see all these people talking about using Skinny Fiber because they were struggling with weight loss (even people on my Facebook) but really, it’s not that hard to control your appetite. I lost 30 pounds in 3 months all naturally and I wasn’t even fat. Healthy eating and portion control is all I did. Unless it’s a needed prescription for a medical purpose, I do not put pills/tablets in my body. A glass of milk or water can keep yourself full for a while, or a low calorie high-fiber veggie snack. Or just keeping yourself occupied with your mind off food. If you try, you will adapt.

  80. Brandi says:

    I have been taking skinny fiber for over a month & have actually gained weight – I have been eating better ‘ working out so not sure what the problem is but I am about to give them up because I don’t want to gain any more weight!!! I take them as directed with plenty of water also. Fed up!!!

    • Martha says:

      Brandy you may be experiencing detox and that is why you are gaining weight…once the toxins build up you will release everything from your body…It is very important that the capsules are in your body before the food is so that the digestive enzymes in Skinny Fiber can do their job…Try opening up the capsules and pouring them in a couple of tablespoons of applesauce then drink the water as usual …this will allow the product to get in your system faster so you wont have to wait for the gelatin to dissolve…Many people dont have enough acid in their body to dissolve them…Also drink plenty of water but instead of chugging it in large amounts drink it in small amounts throughout the day to allow your body to properly absorb the water…Hope these tips help :)

  81. Ncstudd says:

    no question this is a freaking cult…all over facebook and nothing but a way for these people to use people for their own benefit! So sick of seeing a 1000 bs comments on FB each day!

  82. Elena Velazquez says:

    I started to take skinny fiber four days ago. my bottle recommended up to three in the morning and three in the evening. I didn’t do that, I use it as sales women directed twice daily two capsules…..I feel sick horrible … foolishly I kept taking it after the first day thinking that my body had to change itself from the inside…

  83. Elena Velazquez says:

    I’ve had a ruptured spleen and 3 kids I’ve never felt such horrible cramps in my life or any other kind of pain I don’t recommend it for anybody maybe that was just my side effect but that’s my story and I don’t recommend it for nobody
