Citrax

Please can you advise me on the use of Citrax to lose weight. I saw an ad in the November DSTV guide advertising that a lady lost 50kg in 6 months - eating what she wanted and just taking the tablets. They are sold via home shopping from Arcadia. Please can I have you advice.

Dear LdK
I am doubtful that any slimming pills, esp those sold over-the-counter will produce weightloss of 50 kg in 6 months. These slimming pills and potions are usually accompanied by a starvation diet and it is the low-energy diet that causes the weightloss, not the pills. For your own sake rather reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for at least 30 min a day. While you are on the ‘Weight loss’ site, read about every aspect of slimming (the dangers of diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects of slimming, etc) by surfing on this site.

My weight has been a yo yo ever since I can remember. I am a firm believer that if one has a weight problem, your eating habits need to be monitored forever and not just for the duration of a diet. I believe in Wrigh Less as opposed to wight watchers I have also ried most diets by word of mouth etc. I am now going to start with Cirax as I need a kick start before going on to weigh less, ye again. Hope it works!!!!!

Don' t be silly. A nursing mother can' t have any diet pills even if it' s herbal or all natural. You' ll pass it on to your baby. My baby is ten months old now and i' m still battling to lose the weight. But at least it' s happening naturally. Your time will come. Just look at your baby and you' ll know those extra pounds were worth it.
Good luck. Look into investing in an orbitrek, Now that works,

Hi All

Ive discovered something even better and that is the diet that looks at your blood type. Im O positive and have elimenated potatoes and starch(Breads,cakes all wheat products) from my diet as they do not agree with my system. IT DOES WORK. I feel more healthy, energetic and its costing me zero. I ve lost 10 kilos in one month and dont feel irritated, nauseaus or hungry as Im eating what my body requires. I even braai in a pan with a little oil and spice my meat, chicken fish and for bread I eat RYE vita as we O positives r wheat intolerant. Sweet potatoes is an excellent replacement for potatoes. for cereal i eat rice crispies and soya milk as our systems also dont function well with dairy products. I do hope this helps more people out there.

I lost 3 kilos in my first week of using citrax, without cutting anything from my diet. I am more regular and I feel full most of the time. It' s really supressing my appetite, without any side effects. I' m really hopeful since I really want to lose many kilos.
