Such tool is useful only if studies have been done against your diet pills.

The best way to loose weight is only to exercise more (cardio at least 3 time a week for 40 min interval training to burn fat -some recommend 20 min of intense interval training) and to eat healthy.

Weight training is a great support to loose fat as well.
Please read a book or ask the assistance of a coach to train properly.

While cardio will help you to burn fat, weight training will allow you to burn fat and shape your body.
Don't forget to rest 48h between two weigth training day, in order to allows your muscles to be build.
So ideally, you will do cardio day 1, upper body weight training day 2, cardio day 3, lower body weight training day 4, etc with 1 resting day a week.

Please cross-check with your healthcare provider.

Actually, John, Check My Meds includes interactions based on almost ANYTHING in medical literature, including published case reports.
