I try to eat 3-4 decent sized healthy meals everyday. Sometimes in between meals I get cravings, sometimes true hunger. Anyway, taking 3 of these plus one Garcinia 1000 works for hunger. I am able to wait until my next meal without snacking. As for cravings, well when I get a craving, it's bad! So, even if I take these pills, my hunger does go away, but if the craving is bad enough, I eat anyway. The only thing that I can do for that is to remind myself that I'm not really hungry and I need to have the willpower to not "pig out"...easier said than done, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Overall I recommend this, it's a great price for so many capsules.

This stuff made me feel all bloated and gave me the absolutely stinkiest gas I have ever had in my life. It also plugged me up instead of having the opposite effect. Prior to taking this I maintained regular BM with acidophilus and kefir taken nightly. While taking glucomannan I was fairly constipated and I drink a lot of water. It had no effect on my weight at all.

Tried this and stopped after 4 days. It made me constipated. Did not go to the bathroom for 5 days! Ouch....

This product is suppose to help your cravings for food and help you loose weight but I see little difference. In fact I fear it is the opposite with me. I get hungery when I take it. I am going to do more research on it and might have to stop taking this product.

thank you very much for the product but it didn't help me.

Didn't do a thing. Been using it for a month without success. My friend also did not find this product beneficial. Perhaps the power would be better

I bought this because the glucomannan powder I usually buy has been discontinued. This is a lot more expensive, and frankly, I can't tell one thing different when I take the capsules. No lessening of appetite, no more "regularity" than before. I was hoping this would be a good tool for weight loss, but I won't bother buying it again.

Ok, but a couple of the capsules were empty... Ie shell the shell with no contents...

Dosen't work at all. It didn't stop me from feeling hungry or help at the other end either. Snake Oil comes to mind...will never buy this product again. Extremely disatisfied
