Look at the ingredients.

It will say capsule size 1000mg (Just an example)

Ingredients by capsule:

25% GLA (250mg)
etc..
etc..

Therefore, one capsule of 1000mg has 250mg GLA in it.

So, you would take 4/day

Adjust accordingly with the capsules you have and how high they are in % GLA.

I'm not here for what you would call weight loss. I'm here for more gaining weight/increasing my endurance using a low-carb approach style diet 33/33/33, instead of the high carb apprach which always left me tired because of the high blood sugar fluctuations.

But usually when I diet I try to stick to about 2lbs fat loss/week.

This time I started at about 201lbs 12% and now I'm about 184lbs 9-10%. Took me about 8 weeks.

Hello - quick question... for those that take the liquid CLA from Netrition (orange creamsicle flavor my bum!) - how do you take it? I had a wicked hard time getting it down this morning.. I tried to gulp down some water ASAP but every time I burp today (sorry) I keep tasting this nasty stuff. What about mixing it with something? Anyone have any suggestions?

It will do that for a couple days till your body gets used to it. I mix mine in calorie countdown milk and take it with my borage oil just before breakfast. You can mix it with any drink

So are the pills for borage oil, just as affective as the liquid? I have just found some in a vitamin ( Omega 3-6-9) it has 400 mg of borage oil, so I take 3 of them a day

Thanks Trisha - I've been taking the pill form of CLA for the past month - but I'm liking the idea of less pills to take (as compared to taking 4-5 pills a day). I don't drink anything else but water - but I do have some juice crystals (zero carb) that I could mix it and wawter with. I'll try that! Thanks!!

Hope that works better for you. I am amazed by this combo. We just got back from vacation from a week in the smoky mountains and I took my combo but I ate like a PIG !!! I ate pizza, bread, taters, ice cream, you name it, I ate it lol. I am not condoning eating like this but I was 186 when I left and did not gian 1 pound !!!! I knew I was going to re-induct when we got back and wanted to eat what I wanted and get it out of my system before I started LC'ing again Nov 1st and I sure did lol. I am really impressed with this combo !!!! Now time to get serious and start losing again !!!

It's been a month for me on this now (along with on Atkins) and I have gone from a size 18 to a tight-ish size 16 - I was expecting more, but really. Nothing can perform miracles! LOL - I've lost about 15 lbs as well in this month - not sure if that's just the Atkins working, or if it's the CLA/GLA too? ... that's great about not gaining anything while on vacation! Must've been nice to just indulge for a week and not care - I will do that on my cruise in September next year. Also, I'm allowing myself 1cup of my mom's special stuffing at Christmas time. I figured I have deserved it and I am already prepared to gain a few pounds from it - it's worth it! LOL

Just hang in there. I started on the combo a size 18 (tight) and in 3 months I was in a loose 14 !! I lost about 20 pounds during that time, but I lost alot more inches. I am not that unhappy with myself that I will deprive myself of things I like to eat on special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I just will have a little of something and remember to take my combo and carb blockers. They really do work, just don't use them as a crutch to keep eating off plan.

Trisha,

About those carb blockers! I just visited Netrition, and read some interesting things about it. How many capsules do you take, and how long have you been taking it.

Did you find that taking the combo was not enough, or is the starch neutralizer just a backup when you know you're going to be eating more starchy carbs.

This is the first time I've read about it, so my curiosity is peaked!

Just take them like they say on the bottle. Walmart has them too but I cant remember what they are called. Just make sure they are the Phase 2 kind like Netritions. I only take them when I know I am going to be away from home for awhile and eat something off plan. They only work on starchy stuff, not sugars so be careful what you eat if you take them. They really do work. I just order them with my combo and keep them on hand for emergencys lol

I never was one to stick to a structured plan. I have tried every quick fix pill out there and this combo is the only thing that works for me.

I am just wanting to know if anyone out there takes a carb blocker as well as their cla/gla combo. I was thinking of taken the phase 2.

I use them only when I am away from home and know I am going to have a cheat meal. They do work but dont fall into the trap and use them for a crutch to keep cheating. Just use them occasionally

great thanks, I have yet to notice a difference, but have only been on it for 2 weeks, and have been taking the CLA and green tea combo, but I guess the CLA/GLA combo works the best correct? And then the hoodia is for appetite control right? Just new to all this and trying to get it right, so many people on here have had such great results... just a bit green with envy i guess
