Fatty McCoronary 

Since the FDA finally got around to banning Ephedra earlier this year (I'm not actually in favor of banning things like this, but since we ban some this one needed to go too), there has been an influx of non-ephedra diet supplements (a.k.a. drugs) on the market.

Now, big surprise, these have also been found dangerous, and also ineffective. C. aurantium extracts appear to have similar metabolic effects to grapefruit, and also causes hypertension.

Take-home lesson? Try losing weight the old-fashioned way: eat a healthy diet and exercise! Also, once you're eating right and exercising, grow some self-esteem and stop worrying about it.
