bfg1 said...fat is essential in so mny bodily processes a key one being hormonal production.
But I doubt its any where near as effective as it would claim to be and besides which fat is not the biggest enemy excessive calories is
Actually hormones are based on sterols, which are more like a solid form of alcohol, and typically derive from the glandular tissue's modification of cholesterols.
But you are right in that fat is a necessary part of your daily physiology and metabolism. Its also rude to limit your fat intake while having a high metabolic output because fats in your fatty organs get sacrificed, like your brain, and your liver... not a good thing. Thats the one of the biggest reason why MD's will advise to not loose weight too rapidly. Best done by change of habit, not a force of a drug, be it a stimulant or something that causes mal-absorption of problem nutrition. I doubt that mal-absorption of fat would be a problem tho with all the fat I have available inside me, at least not for a few weeks duration.
I think the most effective means of using this stuff would be to break you of eating fatty food. Take a full does then pig out on fatty stuff until one is grossed out by their own bodily elimination that they modify their food intake to more of a fiber/vegetable/protein composition.
Like the old starch blocker pills from the 80's that inhibited starch enzyme activity with the side effect of diarrhea and gas. Take two in the morning, now eat all the spaghetti and Italian pasta that you want... and just see if you can come back for more! LOL
