HI Doc

I have been using GABA now for about a month. I read that it helps your body get rid of body fat and increases your bodies mucle. I have gained about 3kg in the last week while im really eating healthy. I' m feeling so despondent about that. What can be the reason for that?????

Please advice!

Dear K
Gamma-butyric amino acid or GABA is purported to increase production of human growth hormone which is supposed to increase lean muscle mass. If this supplement is not having the desired effect on you and is in fact having the opposite result, namely weight gain, then it would be advisable to stop using it. To lose weight you need to reduce your energy intake and to build lean muscle tissue you should do weight bearing exercises. The golden rule is that if you use a weightloss supplement and it does not work, then stop taking it.
Best regards
