I was using it over 4 months. The dosage on the bottle said one capsule with each meal but sometimes I would forget. It seems this stuff takes the fat from your belly and puts it into your blood stream.
To be fair my family history does show some high cholestoral but I was never close to this high. I eat fairly well, avoiding red meat and such. I ride 100 to 200 miles a week. It may effect other people differently but as I would see a Dr. and check my cholestoral often if taking this stuff.
Thanks for the original posting and follow up. It has me thinking about the homeopathic CholestOff I started taking last week. Since starting, I've put on three pounds for no reason at all (same amount of food intake and number of hours working out). I'm starting to wonder if it has the opposite effect of the CLA and takes the fat out of your blood and puts it on your body.
Could also be that I'm not tracking the holiday cookies very well, too.
