To be honest I stopped taking it after only a week and a half or so. I've suffered from anxiety in the past and it just set it off. I felt jittery the whole time that I was taking them and I didn't see any results either.
My mom tried to take them at the same time but immediately stopped because it gave her diahrrea and an upset stomach. To be honest this makes me a bit weary of it because if what this really does to people is just make them go to the bathroom a lot, it will dehydrate them and if that's the case, you're not really losing weight, you're just losing all of your water and that isn't healthy.
It's a bit annoying because I bought from a good brand so it was expensive and I got zero results from it. But then again, maybe if I'd tried to keep going with it I would've seen a difference.
I've actually gone to yourtea.com and I'm going to try some of their herbal teas which are supposed to help with any bloating and indesgestion issues so I'll see if that works for me instead.

I'm going to start taking this tomorrow before my lunch - I've decided to take it easy for the first day or so to make sure that I don't have any adverse reaction to it. Background: I'm 24, not overweight at all, I exercise 5 times a week and I attempt to eat a healthy diet. I just want something to help me tone up.
To the people talking about how it inhibits iron absorption - if that's true, I hope it does. I have hemochromatosis (iron overload) and if there's something that can help stop my body from holding excess iron that would be wonderful. Side note - hemochromatosis occurs in 1 of every 200-300 people and it is rarely diagnosed. It causes iron to sit around your organs and if left untreated it will slowly eat away at them and cause organ failure. Most women aren't diagnosed until they're 50 and men are 40. I was lucky and was diagnosed when I was 20. I thought I had low iron -- the symptoms are identical. I know this is going off topic here, but I just want to spread information about it because it's a disease that is never talked about but it should be. So many people die from this when they're older because they have no idea that they have it. It's easily treated -- you just need to have phlebotomies (a bag of blood drawn) once in a while to keep iron levels down. So long as you do that, your life expectancy is normal.
Anyways, I'll come back and post my results in a few weeks.
PS- can people please post what brand they purchased and the ingredients? That would be helpful. I went onto vitalmend.com and bought theirs. It says that it's FDA approved, GCA, etc. Only ingredients are the bean and vegetable cellulose. There is also a contact number on the site which I called because I mistyped my mailing address - I was glad someone actually picked up on the other end. Made me feel better about the company I was purchasing it from.
