A few years ago I was rendered immobile by the result of a misadventure while involved in something semi-dangerous. In short I hurt myself pretty badly. During the convalescence I gained a bit too much weight. Under supervision and with medical advice I took CLA Tonalin, a chromium niacin blend, and garcinia cambogia (Citrimax). The weight gain stopped and most of that weight was lost by the time I could move again. I continued those supplements and added exercise as soon as I was no longer disabled. Lost a lot of weight while still stuck in a chair and lost more and toughened up when able to be active again.

It's been a little over 1 week. I've been taking 5 pills a day which equals to 3.9 mg of pure CLA. The recommended dosage is 3.4 mg.
Definitely lost some fat around my stomach
Gained some muscle on my thighs.
I don't count calories, I just eat normally until I'm full. I have been aiming for low-fat though, I think CLA works better that way, and low-carb doesn't work for me.
I would like to think the CLA is helping but I don't want to jump to conclusions. I've also been taking BCAA's with which I had good results before.
So far so good, I'll probably get another CLA bottle.
I'm 185 now, can't see my abs at all but I like where I am. Would like to get down to 175 by the end of the summer.
Strength has gone to shit though, I used to squat 4 plates, I'd be happy if I can manage 3 now. But it won't be hard to get it back, been here before.
