I had a similar experience to you, though I didn't lose as much weight. I am 6', I went from about 230# to about 203# and lost about 6-7 inches off of my waist on a combination of Paleo and Crossfit. But while my appetite was easy to control... (more)

I have used it off and on, most when I was VLC and experienced some leg/muscle cramps. It definitely helped relieve the cramps. Have to be careful though as it can give you diarrhea. Although have also used it once or twice to clear up some... (more)

Hey, I've noticed that quite a few people here eat canned salmon, sardines, etc. I wouldn't mind doing the same but am kinda concerned about metal leaching from the can to the fish. Anyone know anything about the subject that can put my mind at ease? (more)
