Has anyone tried using something called Starch Away Blocks Carbs. I keep seeing coupons for it in the Sunday paper and am wondering about how good they are. Are they worth trying?

I've read a lot about starch blockers and tried a drug-store brand. From what I've read as long as the product contains a certain 'brand' of white kidney bean extract (and I can't remember the brand) it works. I didn't have TONS of luck with them, cuz I didn't really cut back in my eating at all ... and it only block carbs from starch, not carbs from sugar.
