Glucomannan Reviewed – Will I Lose Weight

There has been a lot of discussion recently about the advantages of using an appetite suppressant to lose weight. One product used in a number of appetite suppressants is glucomannan. Some times called konjac, konjac fiber or konjac glucomannan it is now appearing in the market usually in a capsule, tablet or powder form.

And three questions immediately come to mind

  • What is glucomannan
  • How does it work
  • Is it safe to use

The answer to these questions depends to a great extent on the appetite suppressant being considered, the quality of the product and the integrity of the supplier or manufacturer. All of these play a role in determining the final outcome in these situations.

However there is another form that has been described as the Japanese women’s secret weapon, namely Shirataki Noodles. These noodles are predominantly glucomannan and these have been around for centuries longer than today’s appetite suppressants. continue reading…

Glucomannan – Is It A Miracle Fiber

There is a lot of talk these days about natural weight loss using supplements such as glucomannan that have recently become quite popular. But it is one thing to be popular, it is another thing for it to work. And even more importantly it is imperative to know and understand what it is that is being talked about. Being popular is no guarantee that it is either safe or effective.

So What Is Glucomamnan
Glucomannan has a number of names like konjac glucomannan, konjac fiber and even amorphophallus konjac depending on where you see it. But they are all referring to extracts from a plant or the plant itself known as amorphophalluss konjac which is a large single stemmed Asian plant that is native to warm sub-tropical and tropical areas parts of east Asia such as India, Japan and Indonesia. It is perennial plant (lives longer than 2 years) that grows a large corm from a tuber that is sometimes (incorrectly) referred to as a yam.

It is prominent because when the corm is dried it contains about 40% glucomannan and can be processed into into a flour or jelly with essentially zero calories. And it is a common item in the Japanese diet where it is used as an ingredient to make Shirataki Noodles and Konnyaku – both traditional foods

Skinny Fiber Review: Not Seeing Any Others?

Seriously, I think I am writing one of the first user reviews for this product. I have looked everywhere and I have only been able to find a few. I have been struggling with losing weight for a long time, which provoked my search for a good weight loss supplement. I think that I actually will give Skinny Fiber a try and then write my own Skinny Fiber review to let you all know how it went. Due to the fact that it is still a new product, there aren’t many others out there. I suppose I’ll be breaking new ground then. After much deliberation, I decided to foot the 60 bucks and get my hands on a bottle. After two months, I’ll be writing my own Skinny Fiber Review.

Skinny Fiber Reviews: Where Are They All?

Well, I have been on the hunt for the most effective diet supplements and I must say, I have seen some weird ideas. I think this one takes the cake. After going through one or two Skinny Fiber reviews, I began to get the idea that this diet pill might be onto something. The only problem is that I think the product is rather new. I have seen hardly any other reviews, and most of what I’m seeing are advertisements. The only question I want to answer is, “Will this help me lose weight?” I suppose I’ll have to try it for myself and then answer that question on my own.

Skinny Fiber: Is It Really All That Effective?

I have been overweight for years, and I am getting so tired of the way I feel about myself. After my two kids, I just could not get back to that “college girl” figure, and I have been battling my bulges ever since. I have literally tried everything, from diets to juices to meditation, and none of it seems to work. I have been doing a good bit of online research lately, something I curiously have not done before, and I have been seeing a lot of reviews on Skinny Fiber. Apparently, it’s supposed to knock out the fat by addressing all three causes of weight retention and gain. I’ve never taken something that goes after all three, so I figured I would give it a try. Let’s see what happens.
