Been taking the tablets for a week and have only lost 1/2lb. Bit disappointed as am on slimming world diet and lost 3.5lbs week before taking the tablets.  It's my period week so I'm hoping this is why.  Has anyone else not lost anything in the first week.

    Hiya. I lost 3 stone on the tablets but it does take a few wks to get in your system. You will have to watch your diet doing slimming world because all meat and fish are free foods on slimming world but some have to high fat content. You are not meant to have over 5g per 100g and most meat and fish do. You don't want the dreaded oil to happen!!! I speak from experience yuck💩💩💩💩💩

    Some weeks I lost 1lb some weeks 4lb! All the tablets do is if you have more fat than you're meant to you poo it out! They don't actually make you loose weight faster. They put you off eating rubbish as the side effects are so grim. 

    Good luck.

    Me. I am just into my 3rd week and have not lost anything yet :-(

    Other people have said it takes a few weeks to work properly so im giving it 4 weeks. If it hasn't done anything by then im gonna stop taking it.  I am eating healthily and drinking loads of water so fingers crossed x

    They do work i've nearly finished my journey. for a start it's TOTM so i wouldn't worry about it and secondly i find it more beneficial to get weighed every 4 weeks if i had to weigh myself each week it would drive me nuts but everyone is different. Stick with it

    Hi Yvonne don't give up it took me 3 weeks to lose any weight when I first started after my 3rd week the weight started to come off. I lost 8lb then it's gradually still coming off I have lost 35lb so far in 3 months. I just been away on holiday & I didn't take tablets as I had a bad stomach but I still managed to lose 4 lb so don't give up everyone is different and their bodies just take a little longer to adjust. Good luck x

      Thanks for your reply, do you weigh yourself weekly or just once a month.  I'm in the habit of weighing weekly and need to know I'm not gaining, hopefully thinks will start moving soon. Well done on 17lb in 5 weeks, that's great would you mind sharing what sort of things you eat, i.e. a typical day. x
