Dr. Oz and Superfruits

As a person who has struggled with weight my entire life, I am always interested in anything that can help me not only lose weight, but keep it off. In fact, because of my weight issues, I actually underwent a weight loss procedure called a “gastric sleeve” operation. I lost almost 100 lbs, and have kept most of it off now for almost two years. However, even though I eat less, and maintain a healthy diet, I would still like to lose another 40-50 pounds to get back to my baseball playing weight.
The problem is because heavy people like me are constantly in search of the magic bullet, every time someone comes up with something new there is an immediate rush to it. So when I hear some celebrity promote a new produce, because of the vast amount of money in the diet industry, I am usually very skeptical. However I recently heard that dr oz of TV fame is recommending a few natural products. One of these is the African mango, which some consider a superfruit. My problem with that is that I never cared for the taste of mango. He also recommended the raspberry ketone, which I have no idea of what it is, where to get it, or what it costs. But the thing that caught my attention was that he also discussed green coffee bean extract. I had already heard about this from another medical source, my brother, a retired Pharmacist, and had actually started doing some research on it. The results of my research seemed promising. But because of the cost, I hadn’t started on it yet.
As I said, because whenever you go on tv, you can almost always find some celebrity pushing one product or another. And because I am skeptical of paid product endorsements, I usually don’t pay any attention. However, because Dr. Oz isn’t pushing a specific product, and is not going to directly make any money off of them, other than perhaps increasing his ratings, and because I had already heard about green coffee bean extract I will definitely give it a try. As for the African mango and the raspberry ketone, I will probably do a little research on them as well, and might give them a try, in spite of my moderate distaste for the mango. I will keep you posted on my success.
