    I take a multivit, a fibre 'helper' called psyllium husks and a fish oil supplement. I'm not on Atkins but am doing low carb.

    My diet has a long list of stuff to take in total - Multi vit, psyllium husks, chromium, fish oils, vit B and co-enzyme Q10, Vit C if you smoke and Milk thistle if you need a detox. I'm rattling!

    IMO co-enzyme q10 rocks! :) So much energy whilst helping the conversion of fat to energy :)

    I've only been taking them for 2 days so I've not noticed a difference yet. I need something to gee me up so fingers crossed. What's the glucosamine for?

    Helps with joint lubrication - is to do with the cartiliage i think. But as i'm back in training it's worth taking.

    I have owned ONE pair of white stilettos and that was for a fancy dress party! The clubs I go to tend to be full of people in jeans and trainers and they play music created by people and real instruments, not a synthesizer and a computer! I'm sooo not a girly girl! I can do the feminine thing but no pink or frills! I do enjoy the odd visit to the pub with my friends. Am probably a bit old for my age if you know what I mean?

    My old boss used to live in Sawbridgeworth. I moved to Chelmsford for my job. Am originally from Thurrock. I can't find a carb blocker review, only info on how they work. They seem really expensive - would you use them as a long term thing or if you're going somewhere and it would be really hard to avoid the carbs?
