    Hey guys, my low GI is going really well! I feel energetic and so much less hungry than I ever have on a diet before.

    Yesterday I had arranged to meet the girls at Pizza Express and as we weren't meeting till 8.15 I was starting to feel VERY hungry.

    I was chatting to my mum as I walked to the restaurant and she mentioned she'd seen this drink called Neuro Trim in the paper and apparently it fills you up so you eat much less at meals.

    I thought "yeah right", but then to kill time I went into Boots and they did have some. It seemed expensive at 1.79 but it was 2 for 1 so I thought, whatever.

    I drank the whole bottle, and within minutes all my horrible cravey hunger had gone. I met my friends, and because I wasn't hungry any more, I was able to make really good choices. I had a green salad with light dressing, followed by a 'light' pizza (500 cals). Well - I was only able to eat half the pizza, I was so full! (This NEVER happens to me!)

    Also, was a bit concerned about the amount of wine we always drink when we are together but I found it really easy to stick to water and only had 1 small glass of the wine.

    I just had the second bottle before my dinner tonight and managed to stop 2/3 of the way through my bowl of pasta!! Unbelieveable!!!

    Hope this might help someone. I don't know if it's something I'd do every day but I think it's a great tool for those 'danger' times when you might end up eating something you'll regret!!

    I googled neuro trim and I see it contains konjac fiber. Konjac fiber is also recommended by Patrick Holford. The drink should make you feel full. As you say it might be handy in some situations.
    Well done on controlling your intake of food and drink over the course of the evening. Great willpower. Good for you!

    Definitely going to try to get this the next time I am near a Boots. Do you know of anywhere else that stocks it? This could be just what I need for when I am travelling home in the car to prevent me snacking!!

    I got some of these in Tesco yesterday so looking forward to trying them this week. Hopefully they will help me cut back on the big portions I tend to have for dinner!

    Tried one yesterday before my dinner - definitely helped! Prevented me from pulling in to the shop on the way home too for "that little something" I always seem to want! Going to try it again this evening before dinner. Thanks!!
