    I have had a bottle in the house for awhile now but I am so lazy about taking them. i really need to get back on the ball especially with the holidays coming up. i am not on phen for now b/c I am trying to do without it, but I would like to see if I can get a few pounds off with the help of CLA and 5htp.

    I get the GNC brand. We have the gold card and normally it always seems to be on sale, so it works out well for us. I opt for the CLA instead of the "maximum" CLA they have b/c i have read that the CLA derived from safflower is supposed to be better than sunflower which is what their Max is made with. The one I buy is also tonalin.

    My husband had the CLA soup problem when i sent him a bottle in Iraq. I think he even got some of his friends taking it as well. He's big into weights and working out, but also doesn't eat the best (no vegtables) but he recently sent me a picture and whatever he is over there doing, it's doing a body good!

    I am going to try and post more as it might motivate me to hop back on the train.

    Hi all. Quick question with CLA. Is the only benefit from this is loosing inches? (which is WONDERFUL ofcourse!) But does it have any other benefit to health? For some reason I thought Omega 3-6 was much like CLA?

    I'm thinking about trying CLA, but I'm currently taking 1200mg of Omega3 and didn't know if that was overkill!

    Question CLA and PHEN

    I just went to dr. on the 5th of Oct. he started me on phedimetrazine and a water pill I also requested a vitamin B12 shot. So far I feel good. I had previously purchased CLA and have been thinking to start using w/the phendimentrazine. Has anyone used this combo? any results? I lost about 3-4 lbs, but it is most likely water weight. I have been trying to get my work outs in. I also wanted to know will I get more energy w/phen? Any advice would be greatly be appreciated.

    I have started taking the CLA about a week ago (2 1,000 mg gel tabs twice a day) and took my measurements at the same time. I will re-measure myself on 12/3/2007 .... keeping my fingers crossed!!! I also have been taking 1 Super B - Complex vitamin.

    Hi all,

    It is nice to know that we all are willing to step on a limb for ourselves. Today is my first day taking CLA. I also took my measurements - I will take them again 30 days from today.

    So far so good. I took 2 this morning after breakfast and 2 this afternoon after my lunch. I am also going to increase my exercise to 3 times a week and see if I see any additional changes.

    One more thing - I also need to increase my water intake during the day.

    I will keep you posted!

    Well I've been reading about this stuff, and only really jumped on it, when I read the studies done at NIH (National Institues of Health) being that I use to work there, put some validation on this. I ordered two bottles. They were both just $25.00/free shipping. So we shall see. I'm not on PHEN yet, can't find a company I trust...don't know who to order it from...the prices have changed, as in HIGHER than three years ago! LOL

    Hi all,

    I too am new to this. I have been taking Phen for 2 months now. My weight loss has be minium but I have noticed that I am losing inches. I was able to get into a jacket that I bought 3 years ago that I had never wore.

    I have been reading all these great messages from you all. I love the support that is here! I have been doing jazzercise twice a week for the past 8 weeks and that is helping me too.

    I am going to the store today and purchase the CLA. I will take my measurements this evening but will only measure myself once a month.

    Good Luck to us ALL!

    I will keep you posted!

    Happiness

    I've been lurking in this post for a while and figured I will jump on the bandwagon. I purchased a liquid CLA called Clarinol CLA Plus from bodybuilding . com. Hopefully I'll see results like some of you have.

    Default question about CLA

    Hi guys, I am new to post but have been reading all your postings for a while and find them very encouraging. I first was to wish good luck to all of you.
    I just started the phentermine Tuesday, but had been taking phenzene and HCG shots for a liitle over a month. I stopped the shots about a week ago and wanted to try this CLA you guys are talking about. My question is have any of you tried the THERMO CLA from GNC? The had the regular TONALIN CLA which was cheaper but the man said the Thermo was better it has green tea leaf extract, and caffeine. I bought it but wanted to know your opinions. Please tell me I didnt waste 25.00 on it. I did feel pretty energized after taking it.

    I wondered the same thing. Here you go.

    CLA Tonalin by Natural Factors The nutritional supplement CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a slightly altered form of the essential fatty acid, linoleic acid. Over 200 studies have shown that CLA may play a very important role not only in weight loss, but in helping to fight cancer, diabetes, and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). In promoting weight loss double-blind studies show an increase in lean muscle mass and a decrease in percentage body fat compared to placebo group. The subjects taking CLA also reported less fatigue, dizziness and nausea than those on the placebo.

    Researchers believe that CLA helps block fat cells that are in the body from filling up with fat by interfering with a fat-storing enzyme known as lipoprotein lipase as well as by increasing the sensitivity of cells to the hormone insulin. CLA is also believed to help burn fat by revving up muscle metabolism and helping increase lean muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body uses in order to function, thereby speeding up the fat burning process.

    CLA is found naturally occurring in meat and dairy products when the cattle and cows consume a diet rich in grasses. Now that livestock are primarily grain fed, the CLA has virtually disappeared out of dairy products and the meat we consume. As a result, we may be increasing our risk for obesity, heart disease, and even cancer.

    All Natural Factors products are manufactured according to Canadian Health Protection Branch Good Manufacturing (GMP), among the highest standards in the world.

    Hello,

    Sorry for being away for a while. I stopped taking Phen again because I just don't feel well from it BUT continued to the take the CLA and feeling good. Def. seeing my body change which is exciting. Of course it isn't happening as fast as when I took the phen but it works for me.

    I am taking the CLA buy NOW sports which is combined with Green Tea, Guarana and L-Carnitine. I am not a caffefine drinker so figured the Green Tea wouldn't hurt in the pill. I take 1-2 pills a day and they are 750 mg. I am also watching my diet and exercising everyday so the CLA is more of an aid than the full reason for the body change. I also don't eat after 8pm every night (except of course tonight since we are celebrating a friend's b-day) BUT normally my food is all eaten throughout the day which helps me.

    I gained back my weight from not eating and slowing my metabolism down to a crawl so eating small meals trhoughout the day to try and get the metabolism back up as well as keep the blood sugar levels normalized. I have foundthe the CLA does help me with this ironically.

    Hope everyone is well and keep up the great work!

    Okay, I thought I posted last night, but I guess it didn't go through. =(

    Short version now...

    With CLA, how long should you stay on it (or is it just until you reach desired results)? And also, do changes reverse once you get off of it? I don't think I can afford to take it forever, but I would like to try it. I hope to see a doctor soon and see if phentermine is the thing for me, but in this small town I don't know if he even knows what it is.

    Thanks!

    I just joined this forum... I was browsing Google for phentermine info and it brought me here. This thread, in particular, is what made me register. =P

    I have not yet bought CLA or Phentermine (due to my budget, trying to justify spending the money on it).

    I read that Phentermine is habit-forming and to only take it for 12 weeks. If that's true, how long should I then stop taking it before starting again?

    As for CLA, is it habit-forming? How long would I need to take it? After reaching my goal and stopping taking it, will I have a negative after-effect from not having the pills?

    I'm getting to the point of desperate. =( Last year (August 9th) I had twins when I was only 7 months along due to preeclampsia/toxemia. The swelling went down, but I still have all the added weight (about 45 lbs.), plus another 30 or so I'd like to get rid of besides due to my height. I eat 1200 - 1500 calories a day, mixing it up, and have plateaued after only a 7 lb. loss. So I want all the facts before I reach for something else.

    Thanks! =D

    I have come CLA and its the 1000 mg. The bottle says take 1 with each meal but I notice a lot of you are taking 2. Are you taking the 1000 mg or a smaller mg? Thanks!
