girls i had to let ye know about this. i joined the gym 6 months ago and started eating healthy but to no avail. :o( i only lost 3lbs in the 6 months.....i was like a basket case at this stage and went for blood tests to check my thyroid function. the doctor even prescribed me REDUCTIL and it made me hungrier!!! :o0 anyway to make a long story bearable i was told my metabolism was crippled after taking medication last year....i was told i might not be able to lose weight for a year or two till my body detoxed from the medication. i was totally depressed and disheartened...even my trainer at the gym was getting frustrated with my lack of results....he presumed i was eating too much but the truth was i was living on 3 bowls of special k and slimline milk a day and training for 1 hour each day.i have a massive appetite so i couldnt understand why i wasnt losing the weight. i went to a natural food shop a few weeks ago cos i had heard that sea kelp helps to speed up a metabolism and the girl in shop suggested i try a natural slimming supplement called GOCAL 1000. now im a total sceptic but i tried them out. the ingredients include apple cider, green tea, dandelion and nettle. i take two each morning before breakfast and no exaggeration.....my appetite is completly gone. i have no cravings and i never think of food. i only eat bits and pieces to keep my metabolism working. i just cant believe how much they are helping me and the weight has been falling off me......4.5 lbs the first week and 3 every week since.also i suffer from awful fluid retention and bloating but thats all gone now!! just thought id let ye know cos they have saved my sanity!!! :wv

Earthangel, Well done you must be delighted. Can i ask how much are the gocal 1000 tablets - would defo be interested in getting them. I used thistle milk before and found it very effective.

Hmmm 22e is not too bad is it, and you can get them in any chemist? Do you have any side effects, and have you got tonnes of energy?

hi yeah id say you can get them in most chemists..... i have all my friends on them now :o0 and they had no trouble finding them! yeah the price is very reasonable compared to the cost of some of the other products ive seen! i was a bit nauseaus the first day but grand since....if anything, i have more energy! the best side effect was the way it stopped me obcessing over food and totally reduced my appetite (portion size was always my biggest problem!)

Do you mind me asking what weight you are, and how much you are trying to lose? I am off to get them in a few minutes I have decided, although h2b will kill me if he sees them :o0 haha
