Default The Great CLA EXperiment

Could everyone starting on CLA come and post on this thread?

We'll need your waist measurement and the 'largest part' measurement around your tum which is carrying the fat.
I'm running my own experiment in my journal (day 1 today) but there are lots of people doing this too and it could benefit others if we record our results here.
We also need to record side effects of this stuff too.

Hope more people join in.

My measurements are:

Waist... pulled in slightly 40 inches
Waist... relaxed 42 inches

Widest chubby bit just below my waist is around 45 inches... shockingly!

First day on CLA today. You'll need to keep to plan, not do anything different than you normally do so that we can have an accurate picture of what's happening for you.

Cheers everyone.

I haven't purchased mine yet, but I will this week. I read up on it and I think I owe it to myself to try it at least for the next three months. Here is a good link for anyone interested in learning more about CLA (Tonalin).

I bought the CLA tonight...just have to find my measuring tape.

How much will all of you be taking for this experiment? The bottle I got is 1000mg, and the suggested dose is 2 capsules twice a day with meals. This being said, I've seen others say that they've had success with just 2 caps per day. The bottle I got is the 'tonalin' kind, but only 60 capsules - $12.98 USD I think it was. At 4 caps per day, this is only a two-week supply.

I'll report back in with measurements. I'll use the handyman's tape measure if I have to...lol!

CITRUSKISS from all I've read, the suggested daily intake of Tonalin® CLA is one 1000mg capsule (1g) three times daily with food, for a total of three grams per day. Ordering Tonalin online seems to be a better deal. I ordered Tonalin CLA, 1000mg with Safflower oil for $16.99 including S&H ....120 gel tablets. The link is below.

Thanks for the tip...I just happened to be in WalMart and this was the only kind available. If I like the supplement, I'll be sure to order it online next time.

Hi Citrus... Nice to see you and great that you're joining in. I see some people take 4000g of the stuff but I'm on 3000 which is the recommended dose on the bottle.

Day two today and I'm not experiencing any side effects. I'm told that it can give you gas and loosen stools somewhat but no difference for me.

Hi Sapphire,
Nice to have you joining in. Don't forget to measure, guys. We need to show if this stuff works ... I hear for some it's good and for others the effect can wear off but if we don't try we don't know.

Thanks for the welcome Annabel. I most definately will measure before taking the product to guage it's effectness. I ordered online this afternoon, so I expect to have it by weeks end. I will post my measurements on the day I receive my bottle. Of course, I could post them tomorrow morning. I don't expect my measurement to change any between tomorrow and the time I receive my bottle. It's going to be interesting to see how/if CLA will work for us individually.

Ladies, anyone not wanting to post measurements here is fine... We all understand it can be a bit ... public!
I think the important thing is that you record them somewhere and then at least post the inches lost. This way we don't stop people joining in.
