I've never taken just this alone. I can't get to the gym, and eating right at the moment is nearly impossible. I bought a new house, camping there, living in two places 75 minutes apart, got two children that only want fast food, so I knew I was in trouble.
I've been taking this pill 15 minutes prior, two carb blocker pills (if eating lots of starch or sugar, which I try to avoid at all cost), and two green tea pills to help speed metabolism. Pizza, Chinese, Taco Bell, a few healthy meals in between, and I have lost 5 pounds in past month. Just imagine if I ate right. I follow South Beach, borderline Atkins at times. So the fast food is so opposite and I would have gained 5-10 pounds in that month if I didn't religiously take pills.
Again, I take this as a combo with others. And this does cut my appetite, which is a blessing.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I tried these pills last year when I needed to drop ten pounds. I aim for 10k steps a day and try to stay around 1200 calories. So I'm dieting. Recently, I had a lot of sodium intake. I'm 144lbs and I need to get back down to 134lbs.
I'm sure the pills will work side-by-side with my fit bit routine. I'm so excited to see the results again. I just need to stay away from my chips. I recommend following the directions, dieting and walking it out.
