The Doctors check out the appetite-suppressing lollipops showing up on celebrities’ social media accounts and decide if they are a hack or a wack! ER physician Dr. Travis Stork shares that the lollipops contain the active ingredient satiereal, derived from saffron extract, which claims to make you feel full and suppress your appetite for hours.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says she has a problem with these because the lollipop company is taking findings from a study with a controlled dose and applying them to a supplement, which is regulated completely differently by the FDA. Dr. Travis adds that he definitely thinks these are a wack!
However, The Doctors all believe that if you can find anything to distract you from making poor food choices it can be helpful. Dr. Batra adds that these can have a placebo effect which isn't a bad thing. Plastic surgeon Dr. Ordon adds that eating this lollipop in lieu of something else could be good.
Dr. Travis says the better option is to grab something with protein or fiber, for example, some carrots or an apple. From a science standpoint, The Doctors agree the lollipops are wack but as a diet tool, they believe it won’t do any harm. If it helps you to eat a lollipop instead of a piece of chocolate cake, suck away!
