peace,

awesome thanks for sharing this knowledge!!!
Blue When u took steroids did you have trouble with your face being puffy and also did your stomach seem to bloat up?

Re: Cinnamon Fat Buster

hi f-w,
i am still on them. down to 2 mg a day. yea the moon face and pregger belly are slowly going down. i gained over 1 pound a day when i was on 5mg for 10 days. if i was off them it would go faster. giggle. i think i am sorta stuck with a bit of both as long as i take them, and it looks like that will be for life, giggle. watching my diet and taking hctz for the bloating. it's a diuretic. i am skinny so i do look funny to me. can't wait to be asked if i am preggers, giggle. at 56? i'd be nuts, so i can laugh about it.
peace,
blue

Re: Cinnamon Fat Buster

I have cinnamon supplements, but I can't remember why I am not taking them. This just reminded me about them. I'm going to get them out and try them again.

Re: Cinnamon Fat Buster

Congrats on Quiting Smoking! I remember quiting 11 years ago, wasn't easy. I think you have to have the mind set that you want to quit. If you don't, it's hard to quit. They have those nifty e-cigarets I believe they are called. You smoke them like a cigaret & you are able to monitor how much nicotine you get & slowly ween off it... I know a few people who have been able to quit this way! Wish they had those 11 yrs ago! lol

Re: Cinnamon Fat Buster

hi fusion,
take one 30 to 45 minutes before you eat. i notice i am less hungry and am very slowly losing steroid weight even with adding 1mg of prednisone to the 2mg i was on. so far it is helping me not gain more or have roid munchies.
it's not magic tho, you still have to watch what you eat and how much and when. night munchies will undo a whole day of eating healthy. i am at 128 now and, fingers crossed, so far holding there. make sure you drink plenty of water too.
peace,
blue

Re: Cinnamon Fat Buster

at this time i am taking 300mg once a day. considering taking another one half way thru the day as i do get hungry about midday and tend to eat more than i normally do. tho i only eat 2 times a day, how much seems to be the issue. what a change from a few months ago when i was shoveling ice cream in to gain weight. i feel better at 115 and that is my goal.
hope it helps you find you way to a lighter you. let me know if you would how you do on it.
peace,
blue
giggle, hope it helps me too!! 2000 mg a day is safe. just checked my herbal books.

Re: Cinnamon Fat Buster

I find eating 6 small meals throughout the day works for me...I am never hungry and if I need a chocolate fix I have a glass of 1% milk and ovaltine. Cures that fix every time. If I want a salt fix, I make a bowl of air popped popcorn with a bit of sea salt. Right now I am baking a fat free apple crunch bake, with brown sugar and muesli topping..AND plenty of cinnamon
lots of love
Sandra

Re: Cinnamon Fat Buster

With regards to blood suger, I have also been told that cinnamon is good for controling it. However, your blood type will dictate what type of cinnamon that you should be using. Take care.
