It's an expensive system. Basically an appetite suppressant. Does it work? I'm programmed to be cynical of anything but the tried-and-true methods of proper diet (note, not dieting) and exercise.
Even if it is effective as an appetite suppressant, it's effectiveness would still depend on a person's eating habits. A person would still have to keep up a good carb/protein/fat ratio and remain relatively active to prevent muscle wasting Same reason why starvation diets are ineffective...a person ends up losing more muscle weight than fat weight: their metabolic rate goes in the toilet, and they find it harder and harder to keep the weight off.
Personally? I'm not gonna try it...but then again, I don't really need to lose any weight. The only way I can see it being of any use (if it even works, and if it's safe) is if a person is severely overweight, and only in conjunction with a proper diet/exercise plan. Like anything else, though, I wouldn't treat it as a silver bullet. There's no such thing as a silver bullet when it comes to proper weight loss.
