I really hope mine works soon. I need the abdomen area to disappear. I am taking 2 with breakfast, 2 with lunch and 2 with dinner. How much flax oil do you take? My bottle says take up to 6 times per day. I usually do half. Should I up that? Maybe I will get better results.

If you can snag one of those %50 off coupons from Vitamin World you can get a bottle of CLA Tonalon for a LOT less. They also have a coupon in thier magazine for $17.00 of the bonus size.
Ok....where do you find these coupons and where do you get a magazine for them? I've never even heard of them until this thread.

Thanks!

Look in the Sunday newspaper coupon section for the 50% off coupons. I find them there once in a while. The magazine is for members of the VW discount club. You can sign up for free when you spend $20 (or is it $10?). The 50% off counpon is the best deal around! I use them for most of my supps. It makes them even less expensive than WalMart! (I compare prices)

I would like to make sure it is not a waste of money, so can anyone tell me if the CLA Plus w/ Clarinol from Netrition link above is okay for me to order and get results?

Thanks,
Kath

I'm not sure if anyone has taken this long enough to have seen results. Clarinol is suppsed to be good, but not better than Tonalin. I'd get whatever is priced best per serving. I also think your results will depend on everything you do (diet, exercise, etc) not just the CLA. Some of us see good results when taking CLA but not everyone does. The only way to know if it will work for you is to try it.

I have been taking CLA since the second week of induction.

I have lost a total of 18lbs and 21 inches.

4.5 inches in my bust (NOT cup size)
3.5 inches on my ribs (right below my bust)
5.0 inches on my waist
3.0 inches on my stomach
3.0 inches on my hips
1.5 inches on my thighs
0.5 inches on my neck.

I do go to the gym every day Mon-Fri. Even if all I do is walk for 30 minutes on the Treadmill.

My friend who is a trainer told me about this when I started on this new woe I wasn't so sure cause it has calories and you have to take two of them three times a day. But I guess they do work.

I think something else that is majorly important is the make sure you drink lots and lots and lots of water.

okay, you guys convinced me.

I'm currently taking Multi-Viatmin/Mineral/Anti-oxident (generic), L-Critine, Chromium, and Atkins' Essential Oil.

I ordered the liquid because I'm too all over the place to carry around pills for meals.

Thanks for all the information!

Wow you guys have totally convinced me! I went out to GNC and they just happened to have it on sale. $12.99 for 60 pills(1000mg). I got 2 bottles. I also have after pregnancy pooch so I am hoping this will help. Good luck to everyone else!

This stuff does work! I lost 3 inches around my hips in a month and only 2 lbs and wasn't exercising so I'd say its the CLA. The one at Walmart isn't such a great deal though if you're taking the recommended 3-5 per day. Vitamin World's seems to be the best deal.

I just bought some at Trader Joe's. $14.99 for 60 pills, 1000 mg., tonalin. Not the cheapest but not the most expensive.

Anyone ordering it online... My bottle says "protect from heat". Here in the desert, things just go to liquid in the back of a UPS truck, so I wasn't going to risk it. Just wanted to mention it. For all I know, every supplement says that, though.

I guess I need to take some measurements now...

Oh wow!! those are GREAT prices!! Im going out today to buy more- the ones at trader joes and GNC are they TONALIN? please let me know as Im leaving in awhile and I paid $20 some for mine and they were on SALE from $31

And YES guys they work :-) I havent really had differences in other areas other than the ENTIRE stomach from the rib cage to the 'pouch' :-) the lower abs is where I measure and one of the spots Im losing the 1/2 inch at a time.

Zoey just make sure you get the tonalin, I would go to gnc or trader joes while theyre on sale instead of trying to get them from walmart for now anyway :-)

Vixen- I take the CLA, Flaxseed and green tea at the same time

Good Luck Guys! Im so excited for you all because I just know youre gonna see a dramatic difference!!

I got mine off Ebay - 180 count for 33.99 plus shipping. After a lot of discussions here, I wrote to find out what % of the 1000 mg softgel was actual Tonalin CLA because I thought that if I was getting this good of a deal that it must be on the low end percentagewise. The email reply I got said that it was 100% Tonalin CLA so I think that was a pretty good deal

I got mine of off Ebay from the same guy for the 33.99.....I think we need to make a room for CLA users now......lol We should all tell our measurements or something on a thread after taking it for 2 weeks and the types we are taking and see how everyones doing on it.

I was just at Walgreens. With the diet pills and stuff they have the Tanolin CLA capsuls I think it was 30 in a bottle for $9.99.

Questions for Mony

Quote:

Hi, Mony . . .

I've been following your comments here and in the thread re/vitamins. You seem quite knowledgeable when it comes to supplements.

1. How much flaxseed do you take?
2. Does the flaxseed have any side effects?
3. What are the specifics re/green tea - what is it/how much, side effects, etc.
4. When you start taking the Sea Silver, will you continue with the three items above?

Thanks in advance.

Jane

Yes, they are capsuls the size of many Vitamin E capsuls that contain an oil. If you have a hard time swallowing pills you might have trouble with these.... Optimum affect is 4000 mgs a day - or 4 capsuls a day. I prefer the liquid that I recently started to take...1/2 tablespoon a day and that's it.

I've used two different brands and both of them were huge pills.

I can't swallow liquid stuff...ewwww so I don't know about the taste. I know I can take two of the big pills and not gag...lol but one tiny teaspoon of something nasty makes me gag big time!

OK, guys! I'm in! LOL!

I bought the EAS CLA tonight at small local supplement shop. It's tonalin. Not the greatest price but it's a start (17.99 for 90 gels). I'll see if I can get the next round at a better price on the internet. I hope this works!!!

I also read today that studies show the most dramatic effect on abdominal fat but it works elsewhere too just not as dramatically. The guy I bought them from uses them and says they worked for him and he was a lean little cutie. LOL!

ivecomealongwaybaby I think that a little club or group is a great idea :-) I dont know how to go about setting those up though- does anyone?


Hi thebookie I take 2-3 (usually 3) flaxseed caplets
I have ZERO side effects from it- aside from the weight loss effects (which I just found out about) it is EXCELLENT for the heart and cardiovascular health which is why I take them and also they are good for your intestines. Ive read that some people have the runs but I think if that happens it will taper once your body adjusts

I take 4 green tea caps (315 mgs each)there are MANY benefits with the green tea including aiding the immune system. I read an article put out by one of the pharmecuticle (I know thats spelled wrong)co's about the tremendous results they had found in reducing fat around the abdomin- SO thats how I got started on that lol Ive had ZERO side effects and Ive noticed from the beginning that it really helped as an appetite suppressant - so its a keeper for me :-)

The only supplements I will continue once I start taking Sea Silver is the CLA, Green Tea and Flaxseed- if the Sea Silver has the same dosage of green tea then I will not add more but I dont believe it does

My losses were respectable up until I started the CLA but they have been PHENOMINAL since I added the CLA- if I had to dump all the supps except for one CLA is absolutely the one I would KEEP!

This CLA has caught alot of peoples attention...It sounds so awesome...I hope it works for everyone..That would be great....I am new here so I don't know how you get anything started but it would be nice to see how it affects people since it looks like so many of us are starting this.
