When I first got this product, I took it haphazardly, missed doses, didn't take as directed, and then thought it didn't work. I then stopped after a week. Then, when I visited my younger brother (4 years younger) out of state a few months later, I found out he was using it and had lost 60 lbs. Wow, being of similar genetics, I then felt real motivated to take it seriously and follow the program faithfully. I have about 125 lbs to lose to my ideal weight. So far, after 15 weeks on the program, I have lost 40 lbs, an overall average weight loss of 2.66 pounds per week, about 10 lbs per month. Very satisfying! I only take two capsules before dinner, since evenings and nighttime are my danger times of overeating. With the amount of weight loss I need to lose, I'll be at my ideal weight in exactly one calendar year from when I started. I can't wait to see my doctor, then, and surprise him. I can't wait, too, to visit family again and surprise them. The product simply provides some expanding fiber material (natural vegetable source) in your stomach, so to speak, which acts a an appetite suppressant (but not one I notice in a powerful way), and I think it also carries some calories out of your system (maybe 250 calories or so) when digestion takes place. I seem to know this because when I "reasonably" cheat on my diet a little, I don't gain a pound the next day; rather, I maintain still or even lose a little more. Yes, I don't eat like I regularly have, but went on my familiar "1600 calories per day diet." I don't eat too few calories because the body will go into starvation mode and resist weight loss. And, that's it. I've done no exercise for now to speak of, but I am getting motivated to start exercise again soon. In my opinion, this product works, but you cannot go on and eat all you want and expect success. This product will give you the EDGE to keep on a reasonable diet from day to day. The financial investment for me is also a motivator to stick to it and make it work. Best of luck, all. I hope this review provides you with real and reasonable expectations from an honest dieter.
