My daughter is overweight and wants to try Herbalife diet supplement, it contains soy (estrogen base) and I m worried this will mess with her hormones. She suffers from depression and is on Prozac, she took the birth control pill for a few months and it changed her personality to angry and short tempered so she came off it and a month later she felt like herself again. Can Herbalife shakes/diet supplements cause issues?

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
