I tried something similar call Liquidlife Weight loss. Whether the product itself had anything to do with my weight loss, I dont know. What it did was got me into the habit of not eating 3 hours before going to bed, cause thats what the instructions said to do before taking it. Where before I always eat up to bed time, now I didnt. So I did lose weight. Also I craved sweets less. I would imagine because of the Chromium it had in it.
