• Skinny Fiber

    Sometimes it can be difficult to sort out the ingredients that have a reputation as a weight loss supplement, and the ingredients that actually have clinical support to prove this, especially with diet pill companies all claiming that they use the most effective ingredients. The manufacturers of Skinny Fiber have made some dramatic claims about its ingredients, so we decided to see which category they fell into.

    Below we take an in-depth look at Skinny Fiber, to see whether or not it can aid weight loss by suppressing the consumer’s appetite and supporting the metabolism.

    Skinny Fiber Pros

    • Glucomannan has some clinical support

    Skinny Fiber Cons

    • Majority of ingredients have no clinical support
    • Lots of reports of side effects
    • Expensive supplement

    What You Need To Know About Skinny Fiber

    Skinny Fiber is an appetite suppressing weight loss aid that also supports the metabolism, according to its manufacturers. The manufacturing company operate as a multi-level marketing company, and we have concerns about the company’s customer service, as they have an ‘F’ rating on the Better Business Bureau.

    What Are The Side Effects Of Skinny Fiber?

    There are numerous reports of unpleasant and even serious side effects from customer reviews. Side effects appear to include trapped gas, increased bowel movements, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, bloating, vomiting, constipation, nausea, and acid reflux.

    We also found one report of a woman who had a blocked colon, who had to be prescribed laxatives and ultimately have a colonoscopy, and another report of a woman who had developed polyps after taking this supplement.

    How Much Does Skinny Fiber Cost?

    Depending upon where Skinny Fiber is purchased from, the supplement can be very expensive. When ordering through the official website, a single bottle costs $59.95, plus delivery charges. Each bottle contains 120 capsules; consumers are instructed to take two capsules before each meal.

    If taking the product before two meals per day (four capsules per day), a single bottle would last for 30 days, but if consumers are taking the supplement before three meals a day (six capsules per day), a single bottle would last for as little as 20 days. There are discounts available on bulk purchases.

    Our Verdict On Skinny Fiber

    We are not impressed by Skinny Fiber at all! The product is incredibly expensive when purchased directly from the manufacturers or from a distributer. There are some concerns from some distributers that amazon sellers are actually selling fake versions of Skinny Fiber, and not the authentic product, but we were unable to verify these claims.

    Glucomannan does have clinical support for its use as an appetite suppressant, but it appears that the amounts used in Skinny Fiber are less than the amounts used in successful clinical trials. There is far less clinical support for Caralluma Fimbriata, and no clinical support at all for the use of Cha De Bugre as a weight loss supplement. The use of digestive enzymes could aid digestion, but they are not necessary.

    We found lots of reports of side effects, which were mostly digestive and temporary, but some people did report more serious side effects that required medical attention, such as a blocked colon.

    We dislike the Multi-Level Marketing Model that the company operate on. MLM companies often focus more on recruiting new distributers over actually selling the company’s product range, and this seems to be the case, at least on the official website. We advise our readers to not sign up to become a distributer for any Multi-Level Marketing company, especially if signing up involves a sign-up fee or the need to purchase a ‘starter pack’.

    Glucomannan may be a good option for some people who want to reduce the hunger they feel when trying to eat a lower calorie diet. However, it is available at many health stores at a fraction of the cost of Skinny Fiber, without the addition of numerous other ingredients that have little or no clinical support.

    Overall, we do not recommend Skinny Fiber to our readers.

    Skinny Fiber Review

    Skinny Fiber is an appetite suppressing weight loss aid that also supports the metabolism, according to its manufacturers. It contains glucomannan, a fiber that absorbs water and expands in the stomach, making the consumer fell fuller, quicker, and helping them to eat less overall. Because glucomannan affects the stomach, and is not a chemical appetite suppressant, it can only support dieting efforts, and will not affect emotional eating. Whilst the product is caffeine free, it does contain Cha De Bugre, which is a stimulant ingredient.

    Skinny Fiber Facts

    • Manufactured by Skinny Body Care
    • 120 capsules per bottle
    • Manufacturer operates as a Multi-Level Marketing Company

    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.

    The company appears to operate as a Multi-Level Marketing company, with distributers receiving commission on their own sales, bonuses for recruiting new distributers, and commissions and bonuses based upon the sales of the distributers in your ‘downline’, i.e. the people you have also recruited to be distributers. Again, on the page explaining how distributers can make money with Skinny Body Care and their products, the enroller bonuses are mentioned before commissions on general sales.

    How to Take Skinny Fiber

    Directions for use are as follows: Take this product (2 capsules) with at least 8 ounces (a full glass) of water or other fluid, 30 minutes before meals. Taking this product without enough liquid may cause choking.

    The Skinny Fiber website is mostly restricted to the casual visitor, with product prices and many of the pages being hidden unless you sign in. This can be awkward, and we dislike the fact that prices are initially hidden.

    When you attempt to buy Skinny Fiber direct from the product site, skinnybodycare.com, 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. The prices are not visible until you enter the name of a distributer; we were able to access the full website by going to a third party website set up by a distributer and clicking on the buy now button, which led us back to the official website, but now signed in with full access to pricing.

    Skinny Fiber Concerns:

    • Manufacturer has poor reputation – F on Better Business Bureau
    • Expensive supplement
    • Majority of ingredients lacking clinical support

    Skinny Fiber has an F rating on the Better Business Bureau website, the lowest possible score. They have ignored multiple complaints on the BBB website, and the only complaint that they did address was not dealt with to the customer’s satisfaction.

    Skinny Fiber is one of numerous weight loss products manufactured by a company called Skinny Body Care. The manufacturers of Skinny Fiber are based at 423 Bussen Underground Rd, Saint Louis, MO 63129. Their contact information is available on their official website, but consumers may be encouraged to contact their distributer first, and only seeking help from the company directly if the distributer is unable to help.

    What Does Skinny Fiber Claim To Do?

    The manufacturers of Skinny Fiber claim that the supplement has the following benefits:

    • All Natural Weight Management
    • Supports Normal Detoxification Processes
    • Support Healthy Digestion
    • Provides Antioxidant Support
    • Digestive Enzymes

    They also go through the main ingredients of the supplement, detailing their supposed benefits, but not citing any studies or sources:

    What if you could eliminate the #1 enemy of weight management…overeating? With all natural Glucomannan, it just got easier! Glucomannan is a unique all natural soluble dietary fiber believed to expand in your stomach to help make you feel full and eat less!

    Caralluma Fimbriata
    Known as the Natural Appetite Suppressant, Caralluma has been used for centuries in countries around the world to help manage appetite and eat less. In fact, some call it “famine food” for its incredible ability to suppress hunger and appetite and enhance stamina.

    Cha De Bugre
    Known as “The best kept Brazilian Secret,” Chá de Bugre is not as commonly known as many other ingredients, but is just as powerful. Believed to help suppress appetite, Cha de Bugre has many other benefits as well. In fact, many people use it to help reduce cellulite, increase overall health, and even gently stimulate healthy metabolism…a key for healthy weight management!

    Does Skinny Fiber Work?

    The clinical research for Glucomannan is very promising, suggesting that it is an effective appetite suppressant, but all of the available studies suggest that the optimum dose for maximum weight loss is 3000 mg per day, spread out over several doses. It appears that the dose of Glucomannan in Skinny Fiber is lower than this, even when taking three servings per day!

    Caralluma Fimbriata has some limited clinical support, but it appears to take a long time before it starts to work, with studies suggesting that appetite suppression is only noticed after a month of use. However, participants in studies also reported no weight loss. Source

    Cha De Bugre has no clinical support linking it with weight loss at all.

    Overall, we are not convinced that taking Skinny Fibre will contribute significantly to weight loss. Consumers may notice a slight decrease in appetite thanks to the glucomannan, but as the dose is less than recommended in clinical trials, it is not as effective as it could be. However, due to the presence of other ingredients, including a stimulant, adjusting the dosage to meet the recommendations of trials is a bad idea, as it could lead to other side effects developing.

    What Are The Ingredients of Skinny Fiber?

    The ingredients used in Skinny Fiber are listed below. No individual ingredient quantities are listed, as the product contains two proprietary formulas. This makes it more difficult to establish the potency and effectiveness of the supplement. The quantities listed below are per serving of two capsules.

    Proprietary Blend 1100 mg

    • Glucomannan (tuber) powder: Glucomannan is an ingredient that is derived from the root of an Asian plant called Konjac (Amorphophallus konjac). Glucomannan is a soluble fiber that has the capacity to absorb as much as 17 times its own weight in water. This means that it swells as it absorbs water, creating bulk in the stomach. It is this effect that causes a suppression of appetite. As it is considered a dietary fiber, Glucomannan is often used to treat constipation or to improve bowel movements.Several studies have suggested that Glucomannan causes a notable reduction in weight, prompting the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to definitively state that it can cause a loss of body weight when taken. However, one should note that not every study claims the same effect, and that weight loss can only be achieved when combined with a healthy diet.
      Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-205-glucomannan.aspx?activeingredientid=205&activeingredientname=glucomannan
    • Caralluma Fimbriata (whole plant) powder: Although touted as an appetite suppressing weight loss aid, this plants appetite suppressing qualities seem to take time to manifest (a month of use or more), and even when appetite was reduced in studies, no weight loss has been observed. This may be because of the relatively short period that the clinical studies observed participants for.
      Source: http://examine.com/supplements/Caralluma+fimbriata/
    • Cha de Bugre (leaf) powder: There is a lack of clinical trials or definite medical knowledge about this Brazilian plant. It is often used in Brazilian diet pills for appetite suppression. Also known as Cordia salicifolia, this fruit may have some health benefits but remains unproven for promoting weight loss.

    Does Skinny Fiber Have Any Side Effects?

    There are numerous reports of side effects in the customer reviews we found, including trapped gas, increased bowel movements, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, bloating, vomiting, constipation, nausea, and acid reflux. The ingredients used in Skinny Fiber can cause a range of different side effects. As individual ingredient quantities are not listed, it is difficult to establish the likelihood of side effects developing.

    Glucomannan works by absorbing water in the stomach, making it very important to drink plenty of water when taking the product and adjust the dosage if problems occur. Consumers who do not drink enough water when taking glucomannan may experience constipation and stomach cramps. As glucomannan is a fibre, it is likely that its usage will increase the rate of one’s bowel movements. Diarrhoea may also occur. Those who experience diarrhoea should cease using the product immediately. Glucomannan also affects blood sugar levels. Diabetics should consult their doctor before taking any glucomannan-based product.

    Caralluma Fimbriata might cause some side effects such as stomach upset, intestinal gas, constipation, and stomach pain.

    There has been almost no clinical research into Cha De Bugre, and so there is a lack of information available about what side effects could be caused by the supplement. This does not necessarily mean that the supplement is side effect free, especially as the product is often described as a stimulant ingredient.

    Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Diabetics should consult their doctor before purchasing this or any other glucomannan product. Not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. Do not use if you have difficulty swallowing. If you experience chest pain, vomiting, or difficulty swallowing or breathing after taking the product, seek immediate medical attention. Do not exceed the recommended serving. Do not use if inner safety seal has been broken. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to stimulant ingredients. Consult your doctor if you are unsure about the suitability of this or any other supplement.

    Are There Any Customer Reviews For Skinny Fiber?

    There are hundreds of customer reviews for Skinny Fiber online, including on amazon, where the majority of the customer reviews are rated one star.

    This product is amazing! I have lost 15 lbs in 2 weeks. I have had nothing, but the best experience while taking Skinny Fiber. It does everything that it states. I will definitely purchase this product again and again.. I’m very happy!

    I have been been taking this product for a while but when I saw how much less it was at Amazon I jumped on it! The product works well with taking off the inches more than pounds but also with making you healthy from the inside out. Well worth the money! You have to take about a month before seeing results and after that you can really tell a noticeable difference!

    Helps with my in between snacking! Haven’t lost any lbs as yet. Will keep working at it a little longer.

    this product did not make a bit of difference. I had no weight loss, no metabolism change, no extra energy, nothing in the reviews I read on this product were accurate. DONT BUY

    Below are some of the reviews that have been left by our readers in the comments section:

    I recently bought the buy 3 get 3 free Skinny Fiber. I tried it for two months but nothing happened, it did nothing for me. Tried to return it but I had mistakenly thrown away the first bottle and they absolutely refuse to do a refund. Because of (one empty bottle) they will not help you at all. So if you do try this, “Be sure to keep all the bottles.” Not impressed with product or company.

    I took this tablet prior to lunch and dinner for a month. I was feeling rather sick before the final weekend (nausea and loathe to take the tab) so much so, that I didnt take the last three days of tabs. After ceasing the tabs I became very sick with chronic pain in my abdomen. I had an xray to discover a blocked colon. I spent two weeks taking heaps of laxative solutions and still not out of pain. Nine weeks now and I have a colonoscopy booked in a couple of weeks.. this will determine if Skinny Fibre has left residue in my bowel, I believe this is the case but we will see. I will write an update after the examination, which requires a general anesthetic, so its no small deal. In the meantime, if you have read this far, hold off taking this stuff until you hear back from me about the results (or not) of taking this tablet. PS .. absolutely no change whatsoever on the weight loss factor for the entire month either.

    I had a very bad reaction to Skinny Fiber. I followed the directions and was on it for about 2 weeks when I stated getting trapped gas and very bad reflux with nausea.

    The reflux got so bad it flared up my Asthma giving me a bronchial infection. I started coughing and the cough lasted 3 weeks. I had to go on an expensive acid blocker and even more expensive Asthma drugs. The entire mess cost me a few hundred dollars. The SF was given to me to try by a couple friends who had not had any luck with it. So at least I was not out any money there. I asked the person online selling it if it interacted with meds, if certain people should not take it etc and I was assured it was perfectly safe. I drank a ton of water, that was not hard because I am a big water drinker anyhow and I took it as directed so I know I did nothing wrong.

    How this unregulated crap is sold without any testing or proof is beyond me.

    I strongly suggest that people avoid it.

    Anyone who says it works and is oh so wonderful is either selling it or getting paid to say so.

    Does Skinny Fiber Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

    Skinny Fiber set out the following refund terms and conditions:

    The Company will refund the purchase price of Product or exchange it pursuant to the following.

    1. If the Distributor (and/or his or her Customer who ordered directly from the Company) is not completely satisfied with the First Product Purchase, he or she may send to the Company the unused portion of the First Product Purchase within thirty (30) days of the original purchase date and the Company will refund 100% of the purchase price (less shipping and handling). If the First Product Purchase is returned after the thirty (30) day period, no refund will be given.

    2. Any Commissions paid to the Distributor and his or her Upline for the Product returned by the Distributor or Customer will be deducted from the respective Upline Distributors’ accounts or withheld from present or future Commission payments. A Distributor agrees that he or she will not rely on existing Downline Organization Volume at the close of a Commissions period, as returns may cause changes to his or her Title, Rank and/or Commissions payout.

    3. All shipping or courier costs for the return of Product will be borne solely by the Distributor unless otherwise prohibited by law. Any damage or loss that occurs to returned Product during shipping will be the responsibility of the Distributor.

    4. The Company will exchange Product if the Product is damaged in shipment, incorrectly sent due to a Company error, or of substandard quality. However, when an exchange is not feasible, the Company will refund the amount of the returned Product. If Product is damaged or defective, a Distributor should contact the Company within ten (10) days of receipt of the order.

    Customers who order multiple bottles should be aware that the company will refuse all refunds where there are missing bottles, even if they were completely empty. We have found many reports of customers being refused refunds of hundreds of dollars, because they had thrown away an empty bottle!

    Where Can I Buy Skinny Fiber?

    Customers who want to order direct from the official Skinny Fiber website need to have a referral from a distributer. Customers cannot view any pricing information or sign up to be a distributer, without entering the username of the distributer who referred them. This incredibly frustrating for anyone who does not personally know a distributer. However, there are numerous websites that have been set up by distributers that allow potential customers to access the website, including the pricing options.

    A ‘starter package’ of a single bottle costs $59.95 plus delivery charges. A ‘bonus pack’ contains 3 bottles, and costs $119.85, being marketed as a buy 2, get 1 free offer. The largest pack is the ‘premier value pack’, containing 6 bottles, and marketed as a buy 3 get 3 free offer; this pack costs $179.70 plus delivery charges. Delivery charges can be as much as $11.64, which is obviously significant! In comparison, many other companies offer free delivery on larger purchases.

    There is also an auto-ship option; unlike other companies that offer an auto-ship option, this is an opt-in service, where customers need to click the button to add this to their order. The auto-ship button states:

    OPTIONAL: I would also like to join the hassle-free autoship program and have one new bottle of Skinny Fiber shipped to me each month for the same low price of $59.95 plus shipping. I understand I can cancel my autoship at any time.

    The product is also available on amazon. Here a single bottle costs $22.95 plus delivery charges. We have seen complaints from some distributers of Skinny Fiber, stating that they are not allowed to sell on amazon as a part of their contract, and claiming that any Skinny Fiber sold on amazon is a fake product. One distributer went so far as to state that consumers should never pay less than $60 per bottle, so that they can guarantee that they are getting the real thing.

    1. Dallas says:

      Why do they not have mean pills. Are in the bottle. They do not give the right info that you need. To make the right choice. Before buy this pills. Just would like the right info. That a lot of money.

    2. Wes the Harris says:

      Any Product that is distributed like this ends up being a pyramid scheme, and ultimately will result in the company founders being fined and or Imprisoned.

    3. Carrie Lorentz says:

      The reason you need to submit who referred you is so you get on going support and information from that person so you have guidance and can get support on your weightloss journey. Why would you tell someone to buy from a 3rd party seller, when if you check the Amazon reviews it is clear those sellers are selling fake Skinny fiber when people say it doesn’t look the same and they didn’t lose weight or felt sick when buying from amazon? When you buy from a 3rd party seller you also do NOT get a money back guarantee, and you do not enter into any contract when you buy skinny fiber from the company website. To get a refund you simply contact live chat, tell them you are returning your empty bottles and you will get refunded your money, even if you did lose weight they don’t even ask. When you buy from a distributor you can ask then for all the specifics of the product ingredients, an ingredients label to take to your doctor and for testimonials from REAL people who have taken the product including children. Aso, there is a box to check if you want autoship.. if you don’t check it, you do not get on autoship.

    4. Jacqueline M. Norton says:

      I couldn’t take this product . It made me feel bloated and I kept throwing up . I sent the bottle back for a refund . I was told I sent the bottle back empty and too late . I sent it before time for a refund and I was told to send it back empty . How do I get my 59.00 back ?

      1. Dawn Delgatto says:

        when did you order the product. the empty bottle does not matter but the date does.

    5. Brittany says:

      Hi I am interested in getting honest reviews of Skinny Fiber from someone who does NOT sell it. I have not yet found any out of the hundreds of reviews I have read that are from someone not trying to sell it. Thanks.

      1. Jenn Roberts says:

        Hi Brittany,
        I have just ordered some skinny fibre, I don’t sell it or as far as I know am part of a multi level marketing scheme.

        I will do my best to give you an honest review of it once I get them.
        I have no reason to fabricate or bulls**t testimonials about skinny fibre.
        Obviously if it works for me, I will be singing its praises, and if it doesn’t work for me, it may work for you.
        I will do my best to give you an honest opinion.

        Hope this helps


    6. Tiffany says:

      Actually you should do some more research before Posting reviews . If you looked into the company, you would see its not a pyramid or multi- level marketing. I just joined two weeks ago, and I did my research! And I have health problems and have lost weight. Skinny Fiber works and there are NO side effects!!!

      1. judy says:

        I am here to give you a very honest review. I am taking Skinny Fiber–just started and I believe it is working. I have not been to the gym since mid June, no exercise allowed but still manage to lose weight on skinny fiber. I do eat pretty healthy and try so hard not to snack on candy or chips but I have snacked on them a few times. In my opinion it does work, but it will not work overnight or just in one day. Give it time and it does work.

      2. Carol Potts says:

        It is most definitely MLM/pyramid scheme. You should do better research.

    7. Belle says:

    8. 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

      1. Belle says:

        I had trapped gas and cramps too. So sorry you had to deal with that too!

    9. 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…

      1. Tiffany Smallwood says:

        you may want to read the label again because I am looking at my bottles and NO WHERE does it say to take 3 in morning and 3 in evening.

      2. Dawn Delgatto says:

        your are supposed to take it 2 pills twice a day 30-45mins before a meal. I have seen ppl take it three times a day. but thats not what is on the label. I will say if you are not drinking enough water you can get craps just up your water and that goes away as that was my problem in the beginning also.

    10. 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!

    11. 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!!!

      1. 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 🙂

        1. Terri says:

          i too Brandy, take SF. Have been for six weeks, almost seven. my weight wasn’t moving much. But ya know what? i have lost 2 inches from my waist. my scales hate me & that’s my story. lol. seriously though, keep plugging away. detox will not last forever, you can do this and get through it. Menopause will be worse…

      2. Terri says:

        No! don’t give up! it could be your body is going through detox. give yourself a chance. give SF a chance. the same has happened to me. been on it almost seven weeks. the weight has gone up a little, but i have lost two inches from my waist. rely on your measurements. YOU GOT THIS. DONT LET IT DEFEAT YOU!!!

    12. 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.

      1. Terri says:

        unfortunately for some, it is hard to control the appetite. just because you can does not mean everyone can. and skinny fiber is natural. all natural ingredients. right down to the capsule it comes in.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    16. 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.

      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!!

      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.

    19. 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.

    20. 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?

      1. 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

    21. Yvonne Napier says:

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

      1. 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

      2. Tammy says:

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

    22. 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.

        Probably the most honest, sensible advice given on here ! You are spot on !

    23. 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!

      1. 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.

    24. 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.

    25. 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.

    26. 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.

    27. 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

    28. 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

    29. Mrs. Angry says:


      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?

      1. Watchdog Staff says:

        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.

      2. 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.

      3. 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!

        1. Monte says:

          Wow Jill, you must be Kelli’s best friend! Maybe you are Kelli!

      4. 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.

    30. Ursula says:

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