lose weight

I was given tiny pieces of something that look like small pieces of some kind of almond that I was supposed to swallow one small piece after dinner. This will make me go bathroom almost after every meal. The nut is very bitter if you chew on it.

I was not told what this was, any idea on what this could be. The person gave it to me has lost 40 punds in a period of 4 months.

Re: lose weight

Sounds to me like you are eating bitter almond, which contain small quantities of the very dangerous poison cyanide. One of the effects of cyanide poisoning is loss of appetite and weight loss. The others are nausea, vomiting, weakness, and possible paralysis.

There are two kinds of weight loss supplements, the ones that do nothing and the ones that are dangerous. The only safe way to lose weight is to exercise moderately and to cut your calorie consumption by about 500 per day.
