I started taking the combo two weeks ago and I feel like a new person. I have lost inches and have an amazing increase in energy. I will never stop taking the combo.

I'm glad it's working so well for you fire . The info on the new liquid cla says CLA works best when “cycled”, by using it for 3-4 weeks on and coming off for 2 weeks, before going on again. So if it slows down, you may want to try that

Aerobics simply do not cut for for retaining muscle however, quite the opposite).

You "can" add a few other supplements to kick-start your fat loss, but that would mean a more complicated supplementation regime. It's up to you really.
What other supplements do you suggest be added for faster fat loss?

So. People should be looking to take something like 3000-4000mg of CLA and 100mg of GLA?

HI GUYS!!!!! I am so sorry for not poping in often, I have been so busy! How have you all been? I miss you guys, I am still maintaining my weight at 155, after losing 100 lbs in 2007 with your help, and the CLA/GLA!!! I am now taking Flax, Borage, and Fish, it seams to be doing the trick, I have been taking that supliment for a year now, and still eating low carb, I keep my carbs under 15 a day, and still drinking a gallon and a half of water. I would have thought i was water logged but i guess not, I will post a new picture this weekend. :blush:

Next weekend is the Mrs. Colorado pageant, I am representing the town that i live in, I am Mrs. Montrose 2011. Im getting excited...I could not have reached this goal with out the support from you guys!! I will check back with ya'all tonight! Have a wonderful day!

:h ugs:

hi i know this is an old post but maybe yall can help...
i took cla/gla combo last summer & loved it..like some have said it didnt make the pounds fall off, but i felt less "puffy" & leaner. but then i ran out & got broke & never got around to getting another bottle..but today i'm thinking about picking up some more when i go to walgreens to get my b12...

my ? is...i've read that taking it on & off makes it not work as well? & that once you get off of it it wont work as well? has anyone experienced this? i want to take it again in hopes to debloat a bit & i loved the energy it gave me..but if it is completely useless the 2nd time around then i'll just keep my 15 bucks...

any thoughts would be great..sorry if this ? is answered already..i honestly didnt go back & read all the responses...sorry!

Anyone?

The more looked into it after I posted this I found out that in most cases cycling is best...
Another ? Do you take the cla and borage oil together or can I take them st 2 different times? Sorry..know that's kinda silly.

Well I've been reading these CLA/GLa threads for a couple of hours now, and I'm going to place an order at Netrition tonight. I am doing Atkins low carb (just started 3 weeks ago) and I am hoping that these won't interfere with that!

Saftin weight management system

Is Saftin a liquid CLA or is it just an LA? I read online that it isn't a cla. Is that right? It also has 5 carbs per TB. I'd rather not have the carbs.

CLA and Sesame Seeds?

Hi All,

I'm just starting back taking the CLA/Borage oil combo and have read multiple times on other sites that CLA is enhanced when taken with sesame seeds. I've tried to do a search and find out how many sesame seeds you should take with the CLA with no luck. I was hoping someone here on the boards might know. I saw a post where someone takes a tablespoon of sesame seeds a day but she didn't say why.

Hi everyone,

I am new to supplements and newly diagnosed diabetic who is controlling through diet.

May I ask a few questions?

Is there a particular ratio on CLA/GLA that I should look for?

Are there any "bad" side effects? Anything I should be looking out for?

Did the CLA/GLA work for you? How long have you been taking these?

Does CLA/GLA build up or extra flush out?

THANK YOU SO MUCH in advance for any help you can give me. I am on fixed income and spending a lot on supplements, so I want to make sure that I do it right the first time!

tytytyty again!

Are You Still Taking CLA/GLA?

I just started this combo today after reading so many positive comments, but just realized there haven't been any new posts for a while. Is everyone still having success with this? Thanks!

Hi all

I came across the messages on this site after my doctor said CLA really works. So I have tried pretty much all methods my entire life and have only really had success with phentermine. I went to look on Sunday and got the CLA isolates its 1000mg and borage oil from GNC. I'm taking 6000mg CLA and 2000mg borage and keep my calories low and carbs low. I also exercise 1 hour daily.
It's only been 2 days now and I'm really disappointed and feeling low today because I expected stall and I know muscle is heavier than fat but I feel chunkier and I've gained 1kg. I'm 135lbs and 5ft looking to lose 20lbs. Im going to stick to it for now for a bit to see what happens but was wondering if anyone gained weight like I did at the start.

I would appreciate any encouragement to keep me going.
