The brand is Herbal Select and it is CLA with Sunflower and Safflower Oil Blend. And it only cost 16.99 for 60 caps. I take 3 1000mg a day. I did 30 min. of taebo and just watched what I ate for one day! I'll keep you all posted. Talk to ya soon!

Angel! That is awesome! You definately will see huge results if you keep up the hard work. Make the connection between the exercise, eating well, getting sleep and of course CLA!

Great job!

I would think that CLA can be used along with any other kind of weight loss program. It is a beneficial supplement, so will not hurt!

If you are going to try it--commit yourself to the eating right and exercising too!

Good luck and way to go everyone!

I think as long as it is 100% safflower oil then it is suppose to be the best. Although Mandy used a blend and she has lost 5lbs in 1 week.-Roni

I don't know what the brand name is, but Sam's sells big bottle of CLA and based on how cheap their other products are, I would bet they are priced right. I am planning a trip to Sam's next week and I will check out the price. My daughter looked at BJ's but they didn't have any. I've been buying the EAS CLA at Wal-mart.

I am going to advise you all to be sure to buy the Safflower or Safflower/Sunflower blend!!!

The "sunflower" kind of CLA is just not working for me. I made a big mistake and went cheap instead of for the quality this time. About a month ago I saw the Sunflower CLA on sale so I picked it up. It is only the 600mg strength but figured I would give it a try. I am noticing a huge difference. I had my Mom run out and get me the 1000mg blend and will report back next week on how that is working. I have somehow gained a couple pounds that I cannot lose and in the past I have been able to keep on top of the pounds if they creep on--that is the beauty of CLA. So, take my advice everyone! Go for the 1000mg for sure and check the ingredients. Also, in the last few weeks I have noticed the muscle tone around my belly button is loose and it wasn't like that before, so I am really curious to see what will happen when I go back to the 1000mg.

Take care! and check in often everyone!

I've only been on the CLA for 6 days and have lost 5#s. I haven't exercised, just cut down on my carbs. Carbs at 70 a day. Going to cut carbs more next, them exercise more. We'll see what happens! I know if I cut my carbs to 20 or below and exercised a lot with the CLA I would lose a lot at first. But I don't want to deal with a plateau yet. I wanted to see if CLA would work without any drastic changes. Starting tomorrow, I am cutting out more carbs for a week, and then my hours are changed where I finally get weekends off and am hoping to do some Tae-Bo with my daughter. I'll keep ya posted.
