B vitamins are used for ENERGY, not weight LOSS.

The only way to rid yourself of excess fat is through healthy eating and exercise with HEAVY weights.

Hey! I started taking this shots, and I do feel with more energy. I'm in the memphis area, and my doctor recomended me the shots... he said that they work only if you do exercise and eat well. They are recomended by doctors, no side effects and u can take as many as you want, just ones a week. In this doctors office they are costing me 20 bucks each, so I'll keep taking them for a few more weeks and hope to see more results. This last week I saw a diference in my legs, my celulite is less and I lost an inch, but I don't have overweight, I just need to lose inches, wich a doctor there is achieveing too. I would recomend it without a doubt... what do u have to lose?

If you do not have a vitamin B12 deficiency it will not do anything. Just a placebo. Save the money and use it for a gym membership.

Medscape: Medscape Access

"No form of vitamin B12 (intramuscular, oral, or other routes) has been credibly tested as an aid to weight loss. A search of MEDLINE using the search terms "cyanocobalamin OR vitamin B12" and "weight loss OR diet" yielded no clinical studies using vitamin B12 supplements. Although no adverse effects have been associated with excess vitamin B12 intake from food and supplements in healthy people,[2] weight loss programs that promote vitamin B12, particularly in injectable form, suggest treatment that is not based on sound evidence. Since vitamin B12 deficiency can cause weight loss, supplementation theoretically would be more likely to cause weight gain with repletion."

No. All this latest quackery does is cause a shortage in injectable B12 for those of us who need it for medical reasons (because of B12 anemia). I hope this latest weight loss gimmick ends soon.

Really? NO side effects? There is ALWAYS the possibility of side effects with everything

Don't pop a pill or get a shot for weight loss. Pop in a workout video or add in some shots of protein powder into a morning smoothie instead

B12 is great for people who do not eat animal products. They boost your energy make your skin look amazing and help your body product more red blood cells.
It's a supliment that can help weight loss but only if combined with healthy eating and exercise.
A b12 shot should not be more than $15 bcomplex more than $25 and 3-4x a week sounds
Grossly excessive.
I go once a week because I'm vegan. I would consult a naturopath not a weight loss clinic for more information.
