    I realize this may not work for everyone!
    I read that in order to get the amount of CLA equivalent to the recommended 3.4 g/ day you would need to eat 5,000 calories of food containing CLA.

    Or maybe just have some kangaroo? http://www.csiro.au/files/mediarelea...angaroofat.htm

    It doesn't sound like Dragonfly has a lot of belly fat to lose, though. Even when I weighed 112 damned pounds, I still had a muffin top. grrrrrr.....

    Since the CLA supplements apparently contain a different type of CLA (synthesized from sunflower or safflower oil), I don't know if your supposition is accurate. Does Kangaroo taste like chicken?

    Looks like about 5 pounds left, so no, not much to lose...

    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
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Yum! In 2013 I will be visiting Oz, so I'll make sure to add roos to my menu!

    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.
