    Just use psyllium husks...lots of fiber and totally takes the hunger away!

    Yep. That's what I do if I truly end up with a random day where I just feel hungry. It's the same principle, has less ingredients (and no gelatine, I don't do gelatine), and is cheaper.

    Dont try to dry-swallow, but drink a nice amount of water with the stuff, though. It expands quickly.

    So I was thinking about this product yesterday.

    I wonder if they are just using a byproduct of other manufacturing processes? Like, V8 makes juice, but then what happens to all that leftover cellulose? Did someone here read anything about that? I don't care enough to go Google it, but I'm thinkin', "Wow, what a recycling idea!"

    It looks like the answer to the OPs question is no. No one has taken Plenity ... at least no one who is brave enough to admit it here in the House of Tough Love.

    Haha that’s funny, I like that.

    I've been on it for awhile. Because of health issues, it's this or weight loss surgery. I checked into this pretty intensely before trying it. Side effects are minimal, bowel blockage occurs if bowel problems are present beforehand, or not enough water is consumed with the capsules. As for eating all those vegetables, I would never consume that many vegetables.

    It takes the hunger away, exactly as it's meant to do. For those of you fearmongers, you need to stop, find out exactly what you're talking about (from reliable sources, not chat rooms and your friends).

    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.

    I am not sure what you mean by "weight loss spam." I'm on Plenity, and have lost weight because I do feel fuller faster. Since I take the pills before I eat, when I do sit down to eat I don't feel the need to stuff the food down as fast as I can, as I did before. I find I am able to eat more slowly and stop MUCH sooner than before. My dogs love Plenity because they now get what I don't eat. That almost never happened before.

    On the other hand, it's not for everyone and I acknowledge that. But rather than making fun of those that might want to try it, maybe a little more support would help. Plenity has actually been tested by the FDA, and if you check Google Scholar, you will find several peer-reviewed articles about it, not all favorable, but then, that's typical.

    The FDA doesn’t exactly have a stellar track rate. CICO is all that’s needed to lose weight, not a magic pill. Unless you’re on the magic pill for life, youll very likely just gain the weight back when you stop taking it anyway. To each their own, but picking the “hot” weight loss pill of the moment hasn’t gone so well for the past few decades, so I don’t expect that to change anytime in the foreseeable future 🤷🏻‍♀️
