semelia fat burner

I have read something about this bean which supposedly assists in losing weight. Do you possibly have some more info e.g. is it safe to use and does it really work

Dear Zainab
From what I can gather, Semelia is a nut that has laxative properties and may even cause diarrhoea. Please be careful not to use over-the-counter weightloss products that cause a string of negative side-effects and may not cause actual weightloss (fat), but just make you lose water which will make you weigh less, but can lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Once you drink liquid again, the weight returns.
Take care

Dieting...everyone is different, in every sence of the word. Be it fashion , music , style or even just our immune systems. The most gained from this safe and effective way of looseing unsightly, unhealth is simply to digest a herbal ,seed, nut. Depending on how our sysyems welcome a new comer, thats how results are takes two hands to wash......A cuorse of 48 quarters WILL COST YOU NO LESS THAN R550.....

Hi, I am thinking about using this seed. Did you manange to keep the weight off after stopping it? Did you suffer from side effects? Thanks

Posted by: Sannie | 2013-01-22

I have been using the Nut for two months now and have lost 9kgs, I did experience the darrhoea and dehydration for the first three months however all that has passed and I am enjoying the weight loss and my body looks as if I am exercising. It did work wonders for me.
