Hi all,

I just received mine. I'll measure again and post the results in the morning.

Forgot to mention ~ My brand Nutraceutical Sciences Institute (Safflower seed based - tonalin) has 1,000 mg and suggests taking 1 capsule daily. Sounds like you all are taking between 3,000 & 4,000 mg daily. I wonder if it would be ok for me to take at least 2 a day. It doesn't mention taking with, during or after meals.

I took one today, but I'm still wondering if it's safe to take more than recommended on my bottle. Anybody have an opinion on what I should do??? I want to try to make a decision by tomorrow.

No, it's pointless. You're supressing the thing that breaks down fat. Taking more than 3000 imo is pointless. If 3000 suppresses it, then job done. 4000 or 6000 or 8000 is going to do the same as 3000.
Stick with 3000 or whatever it says on your bottle.

My bottle says one tablet a day. 1000 mg, that's why I was wondering if I should take more. I just want to be safe, I am considering going against the recommended dosage and taking 3 a day to equal 3000 mg.

I started taking it Sunday and I am just now checking this site. I started the thread "upper belly fat" and it ultimately turned into this too. I have no measurements though cause I only have access to the net on weekends. But guys, I'm telling you, it is doing something, I can tell by my clothes. I don't weigh myself much so I can't say anything about that. I don't have the bottle in front of me but i didn't order it off line. I got it at Rite Aid - in fact it's Rite Aid's brand. I have been taking 3 tabs a day but i don't think each tab is 1000mg - maybe I should be taking more? Well, it is doing something - if it isn't the CAL then something is doing something. The only other change I have done since starting CAL is that I have a higher fat intake. Putting coconut oil in tea. It is either the CAL or the "more fat to make you thin thing"

My bottle (different brand) also has 1,000 mg per pill and the instructions are to take three a day.

Hmmmm, one a day seems a bit daft. Take three to equal the 3000. I think your label is wrong. If you're on 3000 then you're on the same as everyone else.
I thought you meant taking more so you were up to 4000+!

Excellent yoyaney and it's you I have to thank for getting the idea to start this thread in the first place.

I think your CO will make a slight difference to your metabolism because it does with me, but CLA is meant to target abdominal fat... Mine's gone mainly around my back and side above my hips I think because I can get into trousers I haven't worn a while....
