I've been seeing ads in Redbook mag for something called Starch Away. They have a website that I looked at too, though haven't had the chance to really do any research.
The product claims that you eat 2 of their soft caramel-like chews just a few minutes before eating a meal that has lots of starch, such as pasta. They claim it blocks the calories from the starch or some such thing.
Anyone hear of this product, try this product or have any input?

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. It does NOT work. These carb blockers are so stupid. Listen, eat whatever carbs you think you need, and go for a walk or run when you have time. That is the best carb blocker of all.
