Forgive me if this has been discussed in a different thread. There was a huge article about this in this week's Woman's World or First for Women. A fiber supplement, it supposedly decreases your hunger AND lowers your total cholesterol.
Here is its description on the Nutrition Express Web site:
"Glucomannan fiber from konjac root; To control appetite, aid weight loss and promote health.
"Glucomannan fiber is produced from konjac root and is capable of absorbing water and dietary fats. Taken with water, glucomannan fiber aids weight loss by creating a comfortable sense of fullness, suppressing your appetite and reducing caloric intake. Studies have shown glucomannan to be a safe and effective way to lose weight, especially if combined with a fat-burning diet and exercise plan.
"Glucomannan also minimizes the metabolic impact of meals by slowing the release of food calories into your system. This reduces the insulin response, a key factor in maintaining a balanced and energizing metabolism. As a soluble fiber, glucomannan may help to manage cholesterol levels. As a bulk-forming fiber, glucomannan also assists in proper elimination."
Anyone here tried it? Any results?
