In terms of effectiveness, Diet-Phen contains many ingredients that have been studied for weight loss, such as l-phnylalnine, guarana, green tea, yerba mate, ginger root and so on. Of all these ingredients, green tea and guarana (which both contain caffeine) have shown the most promise in terms of helping with fat loss. Research has shown that when combined with physical activity, caffeine can enhance fat burning, which may be beneficial to those seeking to drop pounds. That being said, don’t expect any miracles if you take this product by itself. A healthy, calorie-conscious diet and regular exercise is key for any effective weight loss program.
