This product is terrible. I purchased this through a television advertisement and it had a free trial. I received the product and tried it. I experienced severe stomach cramping and I was in the bathroom constantly. It helped me not eat because I felt too sick to even think about consuming anything! I barely at anything at all for the week I was on these pills. I can understand a bit of stomach discomfort from a diet medication, but not to the level that I experienced. I nearly took myself to the doctor at one point. I also had some serious issues returning the product. The number I was given to call was invalid! It was a horrible experience. Consumers beware! Do NOT purchase this product! Do your research! I wish I had done more research before I purchased this product. Side Effects I had some serious side effects from taking this pill. I experienced nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting, to the point of almost needing medical attention.
