    No, kangaroo is a red meat with a gamey flavour. Its easy to overcook so it should be served rare. Very lean.

    And before anyone gets upset, kangaroos are abundant and need to be culled regularly

        Are there any CLA supplements that are derived from a natural source?

          I have decided to do a trial of the Tonalin CLA, starting today. I will do it for 3 weeks and post my findings here. After another poster suggested we look at Dr. Ann Louise's postings on CLA and reading other research, I decided it wouldn't be that risky to try it out. I specifically have belly fat to lose, so we'll see...

            Day 2 of CLA I can report some mild gastrointestinal issues. Nothing too major, though- it's about the same as when I started taking vitamins regularly.

              Eraserheadgirl: Consider giving it longer than just a 3-week trial. It takes about that long to even kick in, usually 2-3 weeks.

                    i would be very cautious about taking a monkeyed-with safflower-based CLA supplement. CLA is a trans-saturated fat. while it makes sense that getting it from natural sources is good for you, i really don't think safflower-based trans-saturated fat could be beneficial.

                      I'm not scared of safflower, so no worries there.

                        I am going to have to abort the CLA experiment- my delicate stomach just can't do it another day. Good luck to those with strong constitutions.

                          I'm probably going to give this a go. I'm so desperate to lose weight. Ever since I had my pituitary gland removed in '94 I've been struggling like crazy with my weight, do to hypothyroid. No amount of primal eating has changed that. I've got a cast iron stomach so I'm not really worried about it bothering me. I'll update this thread with my results.

                            Mike, are you supplementing/replenishing other pituitary activated hormones along with thyroid?

                                Got my CLA on the mail today

                                90 pills / 5 a day = 18 days

                                I will report the results.

                                If it looks good after 14 days I will order more.
