Hi I have recently lost 15 lbs with out effort. I do not feel as if I am starving because this has happened as a result of using calcium bentenite clay twice a day, morning and night. I was doing this to clean my body of toxins and after a few weeks found that I was not eating junk or choc. and didn't desire to over eat. The clay has trace minerals that must satisfiy and it cleans out your digestive track as well as with continued use will eventually clean your liver and blood, but that is farther down the path. I only just began to use it at the end of January 2005. Have found new energy as well. It is a gradual process but very rewarding and very easy to do.
