Have any of you with IBS "D" ever taken a dietary supplement such as Extreme Power Plus to lose weight? This is supposed to be mostly made up of herbs like green tea, ginger, Fo-Ti, Siberian Ginseng, etc. I'm not a fan of using diet pills and other gimmicks to lose weight, but I'm having a terrible time trying losing weight, and I've seen people on this product that have done great, i.e. losing 28 lbs. in 6 weeks.My biggest concern is how will it affect me since I struggle almost daily with IBS. And of course I'm also concerned about the long term effects since the suit was publicized about the FinnFinn (sp.?). If anyone has any information about this product and it's effects, or if you have used any such products, will you please post them here?Thanks,Ann

Diet Pills (Phen/Fen) and fast weight loss programs enabled me to loose 120 lbs in a year which is considered to fast. As a result of the quickie weight loss I ruined by gallbladder which in turn gave me IBS. I don't recommend rapid weight loss to anyone. Loose weight by eating healthy six times (small meals) per day.
