some people seem to be displaying a real lack of common sense when using this product, admittedly there are no clear instruction on the pack. But by doing a small amount of research over the internet its very easy to establish how it should be used, in fact the lack of clear instruction is the only reason I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5. That and the fact I had to buy two packs in order to avoid the delivery charge, when really all i wanted to do was test it. In future i will buy the bigger packs
There are many different ways you can take this product, in my case I simply used about a shots worth of juice in the bottom of a cup. I then sprinkled in a level amount (Not heaped) from a dry tea spoon, (you get a little plastic spoon in the pack but i found this to be a waste of time). I then stirred thoroughly.
by sprinkling in gently and then stirring thoroughly this should avoid clumping and if you do spot any small lumps just crush them against the side of the cup with the back of your spoon.... simples! Then as quickly as possible... down it! you need to get the mixture into your system before it starts to expand, at this point its practically tasteless and does not give off much of any smell.
If you leave it in the cup for a while it will start to expand and become jellfied, at this point it will start to give off a slightly fishy smell. Just make sure you have swallowed before the expanding begins and you wont have any problems, also it is advised that you drink at least another cups worth of liquid (water,juice ,tea) after taking the mixture, just to be on the safe side.
I have read reports of the pill version of this product expanding inside peoples intestines and them needing to go to hospital to have it removed, so please use caution. Here is a link explaining more: http://www.emaxhealth.com/8782/glucomannan-weight-loss-side-effect-warnings-you-need-know
But don't let that put you off, as long as you use some common sense you will be fine. I found i managed to drastically reduce my daily intake of food, no more grumbling belly. unfortunately it does nothing for cravings, your mind will still be telling you you want sweets or caffeine but at least your belly wont be rumbling.
also there are lots of health benefits, here is a link: http://www.konjacfoods.com/noodles/24.htm
After a while of using this product you start to get used to the lower intake of food, on some days i found i didn't need it at all. I made one 100g bag last me between 4-6 weeks and for the price of £6.50 you'll have no complaints from me.
dieting is hard, but I found this really does help.... Good luck.
