This product was everything that I needed to start my weight-loss journey. This is not some miracle product that will drop you down 10 pant-sizes while you eat a pizza every night at 10pm. However, it will absolutely curve your appetite when taken 30 minutes to 2 hours before a meal AND it will give you the energy boost you need to incorporate some exercise in your life. I have been taking this product for 4 months and have lost 15 pounds. I was never over-weight but inching my way to the higher end of normal and decided that something had to change. Along with taking this product, I started to go to the gym 4-7 times a week and incline walk (at a semi-leisurely) pace and would occasionally spend 15-20 minutes on the stair-stepping machine. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a boost in their weight-loss efforts. It has worked for me and many of my close family members and friends.
