    If you're sticking to the low carb diet....I don't think the problem is the pill. How many carbs are you eating a day? I know I do pretty well if I STICK to a low carb diet. My niece didn't lose at all (in fact I think she gained) on low carb. She did really well on weight watchers. I think maybe you need to look at your diet and see if there's something that works better for you. I know ediets.com used to have a quiz you could take to tell you which type if diet is best for you. It's up to you whether you pay for them to actually give you the diet -- but at least it'll point you in the right direction. good luck.

    I cant take the whole pill. Ive tried but it makes me want to jump out of my skin. Someone please tell me that theyve been here.... Is it going to get better or should I just stop taking it. Anyone else have this problem? <--- Please say yes, lol
    I take 1/2 pill daily also, and it seems to work fine for me. My guess is that you are not drinking enough water. If you are eating things high in protein, but also high in sodium than the scale is not going to budge. I am a low carber myself, and on days when I eat too many pickles and not enough water, it shows on the scale. You should aim for a MINIMUM of 64oz. but drinking more would results in more weight loss. Good luck.

    Have you tried taking 1/2 in the morning and then the other half around lunch time? I have to do that sometimes. Not every day, but some days when I feel the afternoon munchies coming on I have to go back and take that other half of the pill. Also, ask your Dr. about a sleep aid. Mine prescribes a very low dose of Trazadone. At the rate of 100-150 mg it is used as an antidepressant. He has me take only 25 mg before bed. It knocks me out for the night. Works much better that Tylenol PM (which leaves me hung over in the morning). My Dr. says that improved sleep helps you lose weight as well.

    Probably not as much water as I should..... Ill fess up. Lol. I do drink it but I can drink more. I was thinking about taking 1/2 in afternoon but the 1/2 in the morning makes me not sleep as it is so Im a liitle afraid.
    It just bums me out, I see how well it works for everyone on here. I just want the same results, or atleast the scale to move (once atleast dammit)

    Thanks for the response. If nothing else, I know I atleast have support on here...

    How long did you try taking the whole pill for? The jitteryness pretty much goes away after a while. I find it is worse when I am sitting around. You could try taking your half in the early morning and the other half in the early afternoon. Are you drinking tons of water?
