Never heard of them.

But if they did work then I am sure we would all be skinny by now.

Just googled.

£35!

No, as I said before if these things really did work -we would all be slim. And of course, there is a diet plan to follow alongside the drops.

come on, you are smarter than this.

'100% natural with no nasty chemicals'. Bollocks. We are all made of chemicals, as is nature.
'no calorie counting, no points, just follow the diet plan and take two drops before every meal'. The diet plan is low calorie, so you eat less than is needed to sustain life, so you lose weight. You can stick the drops up your nose for all the difference they will make.

and they say that if you don't use the drops your body will go into starvation mode.

the ingredients list is also hilarious. Some of the contents (all of which are chemicals, by the way, as is water) do have proven slight effects on metabolism - the same effect you would get by eating one less biscuit a week.

the people in the photos were all hugely overweight to start with. A couple of weeks of not guzzling will produce this kind of weight loss for them. Wonder if they kept it up?

it is utter, utter nonsense, and it is THIRTY FIVE QUID for 60ml.

all these companies are the same. They prey on the gullible which is perfectly legal. Remember those FB links are sponsored.

It does work hun... I did Secret Diet Drops first (lost a lot on them) but their calorie amount was too low for me as am quite active) I then did Drop Away and the diet is far superior (approx 800-900 cals) PLUS you get extra if you are more active.
I'm not 'hugely overweight' either. I probably was when I started out (a size 18-20 and 14.10. Am now around 12 stone usually (did get down to 11.7 but the summer hold put pay to that! Lol) and a size 12-14. Pretty happy :)
Have a read up - I am in the Drop Away London Essex Support group and they're FAB for help and support! People seem to be doing better on this than SDD - think it's coz it's more sustainable, practical and healthy.
Good luck with your journey whatever YOU decide to do :)

My Facebook profile (so me) often posts glowing reviews for these, iveneverused them, worked hard at the gym and following the weight watchers plan on value diary app. I apparently post these glowing reviews whilst I'm asleep/at work etc. I have no idea how they hacked me but I would guess I'm not the only one.

obviously whatever gets the blubber off is good, but do remember that a diet that needs to be repeated or followed with another diet is a failure.

So sorry Bixie, but as you had to do Drop Away after Secret Diet drops, and then put on 5lb again, neither diet really worked. Try again with water replacing the diet drops, doing whatever else you did - you'll get the same effect.

don't know how tall you are but 900 calories is about half what is needed to keep breathing for many women over about 5 foot 5.

Ermmmm I think putting 5lb on over the summer hols having lost over 3 stone and keeping it off for 6 months doesn't mean it hasn't worked! It just means like anybody, the summer hols with kids at home is hard! I am back on drop away now. On diet day 6 and 8lb down. Feel great. Didn't want to lose the whole amount I needed to in one go. Lost the bulk of it,maintained for 6 months and now going for the last 1 1/2 stone :) oh and I was back up to 1800-2000 cals per day from January to Julu by the way and still maintained my loss. Plus,I don't know anybody who doesn't put weight on whilst on their holidays!

I don't put weight on when I'm on holiday. I just maintain balance between food in and food out as normal. In fact I often lose weight on holiday as I am less bored and more active. It has also been a really good summer weather-wise so that helped.

8lb in 6 days is a scary weight loss rate, not good for you. If you can keep your weight stable at a normal food intake, why don't you eat normally?

sorry, still think you are giving money to some very happy conmen.

no they aren't.

5 minutes 'research' told me that.

the drops do nothing. It is the eating less that means weight comes up. You could stick the drops up your nose or any other orifice that comes to mind, result would be the same. Or not use them at all.

I’v used These products which r useless as there’s a very strict diet plan comes with it which u need to follow properly so if u need to follow the strict plan so what’s the point of using tablets
Just a way to making the money
