Your post got me interested, so I did a little reading on zetacaps. Supposedly, they form a gel in your stomach that takes up 70% of the volume in your stomach, so that you can't only eat 30% of your stomach volume. I'm kind of wondering what happens to the gel after the pills wear off... The pills are very expensive, but the ingredient list is all herbal, like ecinachea and ginseng etc. So I'm wondering if you just get all those ingredients in capsule form, if it would have the same effect. I'd also be interested in knowing if anyone had success with it. Thanks!
