    Hi,
    Has anyone noticed that their weight loss varies depending on when they take their tablet ?
    Originally my doc said you could take tablet either an hour before or up to an hour after eating which I did.. either before or after food, however I have this last week and a half taken pill every time before eating and have noticed that I am losing more weight... does anyone else have any thoughts??:)

    The guidelines say either immediately before, during or up to an hour after a meal. Taking it an hour before wouldn't work as it would have nothing to work on. Remember, this tablet isn't absorbed in to your bloodstream like most other medication, it works directly on the contents of your digestive system. Sounds delightful, doesn't it?

    Thanks kittybling :) what you have said makes a lot of sense and that is why then in the last week and a half I have lost more weight!! I have lost 2lb since monday which I am pleased about, I seem be doing it properly now it has taken me a while to get into it... I have my tablet just before meals, stopped drinking the wine and am following slimming world diet and now it is working!! YIPPEEEEEEEE
