    Presumably your body would expel it just like regular cellulose . . . not that I'd want to find out.

    :lol: That sounded way more combative than I meant it to! You're my green underwater sheep AV friend!

    Don't worry. I can deal with combative. Hey I'm an odd, somewhat slimy underwater thingy :D

    Except, known side effects include bowel blockage/obstruction, so one might end up needing emergency surgery. 🤷‍♀️

    Yikes. Yeah, I think I'll stick with my broccoli.

    It’s also a porcine gelatin capsule! Just in case you, as a vegan, ever changed your mind! 😂

    Right from their website “in conjunction with diet and exercise” “on average people lost 22 pounds in 24 weeks”.

    The general weight loss target for most people is 1-2 pounds per week.

    For my money, I’d rather eat food, drink water and exercise.

    Track what you eat to keep yourself accountable.

    Good luck

    I think the specific issue is to help people who find it difficult to meet their calorie goal because they feel excessive hunger. So the issue isn't that they're telling people that they won't need to eat food, drink water, and exercise -- this is a tool that is meant to help people who are struggling to do that consistently.

    I would respectfully submit, my problem was never with feeling full or not. It was taste, texture, inattentiveness, simple greed, not acknowledging (or possibly even having, lol) an “off” switch.

    Same problem a lot of people with bariatric surgery have. The stomach is smaller, but many still feel compelled to eat more than it can contain.

    I think that’s the problem for a lot of people, and honestly not sure a pill that will make you feel 25% fuller would make any difference.

    Even successfully having lost a lot of weight, that still troubles me, as evidenced by the package of cookie dough I scarfed down the other night.

    I think you’d have to be sincerely honest with yourself why you eat, and then why you continue eating before you commit to this. But even to this day, I can’t tell you what makes me tick, so I can imagine it’s equally as hard for others.

    It does tickle my sarcastic funny bone, however, to see all the weight loss spam tacked on to the comments for the new wonder pill of the moment.

    Excellent points. If you're addressing the wrong problem, you're going to get nowhere.
