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.

I had great experience with Glucomannan from other brands to suppress appetite but no luck with this one. I was confused as to why and even diluted the content of a pill in water. It formed a thick heavy gel that should fill up the stomach nicely, yet somehow it doesn't do it for me, I still feel hungry. Other brands which didn't gel as thickly were working better for me. To each their own.

This product works in terms of filling you up. It's a little dehydrating so drink alot of water if taking it by itself. I take it out of the capsule and put it in my smoothies for a faster response and it definitely thickens it. Don't always have to use 3 capsules to obtain a fullness.

This confused me. My expectation were that high fiber intake will help to regulate bowel and in process I may loose some weight. When I took this product I drank lots of water but I continued to be bloated and it did not help a lot with bowel movement.

I like this product but I do not use it as a diet tool I use it as fibre so I only take 1 pill at a time I have noticed that if I take 3 at a time I end up constipated even with 2 full glasses of water.

The supplement does what is says in that its an excellent source of fiber. I am very regular now. The product arrived in a timely manner. I have yet to see the results of weightloss within 2 weeks or less as some others have mentioned. I am satisfied with my purchase as I did not have high hopes for the weightloss.

Well it has worked to keep me regular, but i can't say it's helped feelings of satiety...maybe it's just me.
