Tgarth - Does your bottle of CLA fron GNC say to take one daily? Mine does so I am scared to take 4 of them a day. I took two yesterday but I want to see results so if that means taking 4 then . The CLA will be on sale until the 29th if anyone is interested in getting some or stocking up.

One daily is a waste of money.... You need 3000 MGs for CLA to be effective in all aspects...not only the fat burning.... It is NOT unnatural (i.e. a manufactured "pill or drug") so there is nothing to be afraid of. It is like any other fatty acid you can take - - Omega 3s, Flax Seed, etc....

TGARTH~

Thanks for the heads up on when the sale ENDS. I got mine at GNC for $12.99 reg $19.99. it says to take 1 a day, but I am taking 3. And the flaxseed oil I take 2 a day.

Looks like GNC is making a bundle this week.

I just purchased the gel capsules on line from the Vitamin Shoppe, can't wait to try them. I'll post my results when I run out, and if my results are good enough, I'll make sure to purchase more before I run out.

I hope all here who are taking CLA will post their progress when I create the thread.

As far as dosage is concerned, I found this while doing a little research...

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) Supplements May Speed Weight Loss

It looks like 4 1000mg tablets is the way to go.

The nice UPS lady just delivered my CLA.
I decided to try a little less than the recommended 1/2 tablespoon serving size, just in case, ya know...for potty problems..well...uhhhh....yeah...
did about a teaspoon...Then up to the regular dosage after a day or so.
taste? yuck and oily...but hey, sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
Love the banner

I would think water is better for the absorbtion of nutrients.

Remember most stuff will not absorb from the intestines unless it is in soluable form - stuff that clumps up or is not diluted enough gets passed through - as you pass vitamens that are solvent the body grabs what it wants from them.

That's part of the theory of sea salt - that the vitamens in it are broken down into small parts and therefore easier to absorb by the body...

FYI - if anyone is interested, naughtycodes.com has additional coupons for vitaminshoppe. I just bought some CLA (the 180 tab vitamin shoppe brand is already discounted 50% @ $27.98) and some atkins bars and got 10 dollars off my purchase because it was over 50.

Accident happened with original banner. Banner has moved (see Rhonda's post on Main lobby).

Here is the new URL:

We're all going to post on the Challenge board. Measure on each Friday I think was what she said.

Check the bottle...the serving size is 2 capsules. Each capsule contains 1000mg of 74% CLA. The bottles used to say that 1 serving is 1 capsule. I guess they figured this sounds better. You still need to take 6 per day. And it's still a good deal!

wow.....this is the most active post i have ever seen. I have been lurking here for the past couple of days....i bought my CLa tonite at GNC....the 12.99 special. Probably shoujld have gotten another...but pretty broke. I am doing Body flex for exercise and water aerobics 3 times a week....and walking most days at lunch time.....and doing dumbbells for arm and upper body.

Been on Atkins almost 6 moths....down 33 pounds....but most i the beginning...and have slowed to a standstill. Hope this is the tickey......
Thanks for all the input....

Im soooo excited!

Gosh... you guys are an inspiration!

I ordered mine from www.WellnessPartners.com, plus you get a CLA book for free. The information on the site is great... especially if you want to know the difference between sunflower and salflower oils and the basic history of CLA.

Just got my CLA today from Netrition. I love that company. Ordered it online yesterday and it was on my doorstep today!

Now let's hope the CLA works that fast.

I picked up some CLA Tonalin at Trader Joe's today, took one before lunch and one before dinner. The bottle says take one before each meal so that's what I'm trying.

Before I left the house, I measured my waist and my abdomen where the belly button is. This will be interesting indeed! I've been saying for years that nothing will get rid of the pouchy stuff except liposuction, and that's way too expensive. Theoretically, I could start saving for a lipo NOW but wouldn't be able to afford it for a couple of years!

So I'll be glad to try something cheaper.
