It's the first time I ever busted a FF. I'm wondering if the CLA/GLA manipulated the scale. Tomorrow is measure day, so that will tell the tale.

I'm finding I'm really not hungry on ME. So that with the HCG is sounding real workable. This is my plan for tomorrow:

Breakfast - coffee with 1T HWC, 2 eggs, 1t butter
Lunch - Skinless Chicken Thigh
Dinner - 4 oz Tri Tip

That adds up to 528 calories. If I allow myself 600 to 800 calories a day, that still gives me plenty of room to add in a egg or maybe some ham sticks for a snack or with dinner.

Just my Opinion Ė CLA/GLA
Iíve done this for only 1-1/2 weeks so this is a very early evaluation on my part.

Pros Ė Iíve felt great. Iíve noticed an improvement in my Rosacea related complexion. I feel less bloated and my pants fit better although I didnít see a perceivable difference in my tape measure.

Cons Ė For the first time ever I gained weight doing a Fat Fast. Itís a lot of pills.

Bottom line for me. Iím starting an HCG round and actively trying to lose as much as possible in a short amount of time. So I will take a break for now and resume after my round is over for further evaluation.

Hey Jeanie,
As you can see from my last post, I'm going to take a short break until after my round and then I do intend to come back and give this a longer and better try. I do like it and have the stuff.

I'll keep up with you here, I've really enjoyed getting to know you, and I'll also be at: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/hc...an-2013-a.html if youíd like to check us out there. We are not the standard extreme HCG crowd.

Saftin weight management system

I read that Saftin is NOT a CLA, but it is an LA. Safflower oil is not a cla. I see that a lot of you use Saftin liquid, but I was wondering if I should use CLA pills instead? Thanks...

CLA/GLA dosage?

I've read quite a bit of this thread, but I'm still not really clear as to the best dosage of the CLA/GLA combo.

I have 1,000 mg CLA oil softgels, which contain 800mg CLA. I have 1,000 mg Borage oil softgels which contain 240 mg of GLA.

From reading this thread, it looks like I should take 5 CLAs, and 4 Borage oils, each day with meals.

Am I on the right track with this? I know this has been addressed quite a few times, but what is the current opinion on dosage?

Thanks for your help!

Update

I've been taking 5 CLA and 3 GLA for 10 days. My weight is about the same, but I'm a bit leaner around the middle. I'm looking a little more muscular too.

Since starting the CLA/GLA, I've been keeping carbs very low. I've also been strict about getting at least an hour of cardio every day. I'm lifting weights 3 times per week, and making an effort to go heavier.

I'm also taking Carnivor beef protein powder with a tsp beta-alanine, and a tsp creatine monohydrate; mutivite, b complex, fish oil, coconut oil, and agmatine.

My goal is to lose fat and build muscle (I at least don't want to lose muscle). CLA is supposed to help. I guess I'll find out; I just ordered a new supply.

I just started reading up on this and have a quick question, I only want to lose around 10-15 more pounds. Would these supplements be effective for me even though I dont have a whole lot to lose? I cant seem to find information on that. Thanks in advance

Liquid vs Pill - whats the difference?

Good morning Everyone...

I started taking the SpringValley Tonalin 2000 mg CLA and the Spring Valley Borage Oil today... I am just curious as to what is the difference if any between taking the pills vs taking the liquid? I am taking 4000mg per day of the CLA and 1000mg of the Borage oil per day.. Please tell me im doing it right? I am tired of the belly bulge. I have been reading all your threads about CLA and Borage oil and praying it works for me.

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!

MissMotty it is my understanding that you have to take 5 of those cla pills since they are only about 80 percent cla and the borage oil only has a certain amount of gla in it. My spring valley ones are 110 mg gla per 500mg voltage oil pill. I'm taking the same pills you are but 5 of each. (The cla is 2 pills per serving) unfortunately we have to read the back of the bottles and figure out the dosages. I just started today, keep us updated on your progress!

I think it's basically dead.

I've been on the CLA/GLA combo for a week now and haven't lost weight or inches. However, it's certainly given me energy which I desperately needed. So I'm a happy camper. Fat might be lost in other areas. ie, My bra doesn't seem as tight. I've only measured waist and abs.

Have to admit, I haven't been exercising like I should, but OTOH, I've been getting more done due to increased energy so surprise no weight loss.

Holy cow Sharon, I doesn't look like you have much to lose. I did this a few months ago and didn't really get any where. I have plenty of supplies left, so might try it again. Please let us know how you do.

Well, I started this yesterday. And I'm starting a fat fast this morning. Not sure how the combo will work with the ff, but I'm going for it.

Do folks take the pills all at once, or stagger them? I never could get a definitive answer in the thread. I'm throwing them all down at once.

I staggered. I heard somewhere that sometimes they make people a little nauseous at first so I think that is why. I didnít have great luck with them and FF, but as time goes by Iím thinking its more FF. LatelyI seem to gain the first day period. Iíll look forward to hearing your results! Best of luck!
