Chromium and dieting

I often heard chromium is good for dieting. Can someone explain how it works and how I should take it where I can buy it from?

Re: Chromium and dieting

Hi there,

I've heard that it acts as an appetite suppressant and it makes you not crave sugar that much. I recommend L-Caritine, it promotes lean muscle mass and it re-directs your fat intake and converts it into energy. Just do an internet search on it and you can read more about it.
Good luck

Re: Chromium and dieting

Using chromium picolinate alone will probably do you no good. In fact it's just wasting money(although most chromium products come very cheap). I recommend you take a daily muti-mineral/vitamin. Almost all of them have the ingredient chromium picolinate. If your looking for a diet pill then that's a whole different ball game because there are so many out there.

L-Carntine is used mostly by athletes and bodybuilders. It acts as a non-essential amino acid carnitine. It helps metabalize food into energy. It is not an appetite suppressant.
