This is a heavily marketed product with all sorts of discounts. I believe it is a phony product. I will try Irvingia gabonensis where comments have been positive in achieving weight loss.

I always liked Dr. Oz, but not so much after taking this fat blocker as it turned out to be. Only took for 3 days, but the side effects were so terrible I have stopped and 3 days later still do not feel well. First day felt good, kind of euphoric actually, well I thought this is great. Second day didn't feel so well, bloated with a headache. So the next day I took it and then all heck brok ... Show Full Comment

I experienced severe diarrhea, bloody stools, fecal incontinence which led to a bladder infection. Ultimately I developed a C-diff infection. Oh, I did lose 10 lbs!

Comment:
I started taking this 2 months ago, 3x daily for a total of 1500mg. I also started exercising 3-5 times a week and cut my calories back to 1500 a day. I have only lost 7 lbs. I do not believe the supplement has anything to do with weightloss. But it has helped control my IBS with less flare-ups. But I do not think it's a "miracle weight loss" pill by any means.
