    Hi,

    I saw another post on here regarding Chitosan but the thread has no responses since 2007.

    The last question on there was "did you take the pills in the end as i'd like to know the result"

    Id quite like to know the result too as they have been recommended to me to help with the stubborn fat that i cant get rid of.

    Thanks

    I'm sorry I've never heard of these pills, are they another name for Alli?

    Hi Donnie,

    Not as far as i know, there from holland and barratt. The idea is that they stick to some of the stubborn fat on my stomach to ease it away as dieting never seems to shift it.

    Never heard of them hun.

    But to be honest - I'm not a believer in diet pills. I know that there are some that really work - like the ones Drs prescribe. But the shop bought ones...not so sure they're the answer.

    Why I say this is, the adverts usually say 'when used in conjunction with a low fat/calorie controlled diet' which you're already doing and with good affects. You might see an increased loss, but then again who's to say it's defiantely down to the pills that week? We all know that weight losses differ and can not show our efforts (or lack thereof).

    If we could all take pills to get to our target we would...but I'm of the belief that there is no easy way to lose weight - it takes effort, planning, hard work and willpower. Not taking a caplet.

    SW is one of the most user friendly things out there for weight loss, and I'd personally stick to SW for a while more before trying these.

    You might lose lbs...but of the ££££ kind xxx

    P.S - you've lost almost half a stone already...without these. ;)

    P.P.S If you want to shift tummy fat, add more water to diet to help reduce bloating (it might not be all fat) and try to introduce some exercises that use the tummy muscles. x

    Oh I see.....Why don't you look at them on the Holland & Barrett web site, they are usually thorough in explaining their products, good luck with them if you decide to go ahead and try them.

    Thank you both!

    I have increased my water in take to 'needing a wee every 5 minutes' amounts lol and it has definately helped. I dont want to lose weight with them although this would be lovely! I just want something to help loosen the stubborn fat! Last time i did slimming world i lost weight from everywhere else but not my stomach.

    Im going to continue with just slimming world for the forseeable future to try and shift it myself - id like to do it knowing that i did it and not some manufactured pill that could have god knows what effect on my body. But the doctor was asking me if i had considered SURGERY if i really cant shift it!! It scared me and i thought id look into other alternatives just incase it comes to it!!

    Thanks again

    lesserme - thanks for the link it was really informative. By the sounds of it - although it may lower my colesterol it doesnt look good for weight loss and it blocks out vitamins & minerals!! So all my extra fruit eating would be pointless!

    Sticky - Your post wasnt too negative i apprechiate the advice! My friend who has recommended them to me has offered me a pack as she got them buy one get one free! Doesnt look as though i'll be taking them though from the link!!

    Thanks
    Pesty
