hi there

Quite honestly, I think that you will be far better off spending your money on actually going to see a dietician and having a diet drawn up that is solely yours, and one that is based on really sound scientific principles. The supplement industry is notoriously unregulated, and their interest is selling products. They throw all these impressive sounds names at you, promising fat burning etc. and it's all completely wrong. There is zero evidence that their claims are even partly true. So my advice is that no one should use it - it's marketing, that's all. And until they can actually provide evidence for the claims they make, I won't endorse the diet. I think it's a waste of money.

Rather see a dietician and get a proper diet, and that will work, and will be safe!

Good luck
