I have been taking half the recommended dosage of this product as I only have a small amount of (very stubborn) weight to lose, that and the fact that I never remember to take the second pill! I have been taking it for about 2/3 weeks and I have already seen a positive effect even without changing my eating habits. I have increased my exercise levels but only by attending the gym twice a week rather than once and I am more inclined to increase my water intake. I would recommend this product and I intend on continuing to use this product as I am getting married in 5 months’ time. I can finally feel confident in for my wedding dress fitting!
