How do you lose weight?

I've been trying to lose weight for about two years now... And my patience are wearing thin. I count my calories and exercise 2-4 times a week. I realize that increasing my exercise would help expedite my weight loss process… but let's be real… life can get in the way sometimes. 
I keep seeing all this stuff online about people using Carcinoma Cambogia and Revolutionary Colon Cleanse to aid in losing weight.
I'm curious if any of you guys have used these vitamins… I know that you can't believe everything that you read online so I'm looking for real women who have either had success or failure in using this method of dieting.
Please shoot me any ideas and programs that you have found work for you along with anything you know about the Carcinoma Cambogia and Revolutionary Colon Cleanse.
Thanks in advance for all your help! 😊
