Question POLL - Has Oil of Oregano helped you lose Weight?

With all of the interest in OOO I am interested in finding out what results every one has had.

PLEASE VOTE!

If you could also put the brand you used here, along with your results.

Hope this makes sense

We started the ooo drops on 2/20, but I also shuffled cals around. Since the 20th I'm down 7 lbs, but I really can't say what did it.

DH maintained his usual cals and is down 6lbs .

We'll keep using it, if for no other reason but for the other benefits.

Lost 5 pounds in 10 days and I believe the OoO helped. I'm taking OoO from Swanson Vitamins 150mg softgels.

I started yesterday morning taking Organika OOO ( just figured out what the ooo meant LOL) and woke up with my TOM as well as at least a 2 lbs loss. WEIRD.
I am having a hard time choking the stuff down though.
Man that stuff taste like poison.

Good luck to anyone ready to try it
Would love more updates from people hope this is a good thing for me.

Ok, I started using Oregano Oil two weeks ago today. I have dropped 3 pounds since. The brand I use is Nature's Way, same as 2brickie. I paid 7.50 plus shipping at Vitacost.com.

Awesome! Thanks for the votes and responses!

I take NOW OoO and have not noticed any fat loss. I don't weigh myself, I just use fat calipers to measure fat mass.


happy voting...

Well, I had to be honest and vote for "no gain - no loss". After the initial 2 lb. loss, I gained it back and have had no further results. Am taking a break from it now, but will try it again another time.

Good luck everyone!

Get some gel caps to put the oil in, they're at the health food stores.

Can I vote "unsure?"

I began OoO the same day I began PPLP (coming from a semi-low carb plan). Thus far I've lost 3 pounds in 3 days which is a lot more than I expected to lose making the transition.
