today my sons gf was telling him someone was going to be on Doctors talking about the best way to lose weight and my son told her hes been taking resveratrol for a month and that would help her better than anything else. he says it takes a while for results but hes already lost some and feels better. well, the lady on Doctors said the same thing! (my son is so smart) he looks up things online all the time for his health. he said the french drink wine almost with every meal? and france dont have a lot of weight problems. resveratrol is supposed to be a beneficial supplement for for that and anti aging. It has grape seed extracts in it. so since he cant drink alcoholic beverages hes taking that. im concidering it, even tho i dont need to lose but would like the other benefits. what do you think? (please dont send links, my son already has them. and im looking at them later.)

no I never heard of it, I don't keep up with all these things, I find most of them don't work, once you get off the stuff lose the weight you put it all back on again and sometimes even more.

If you don't need it to loose wieght then don't take it. There are other side effects and you mite get then and unlike your son who does not. Now what do you want to take it for? Energy or what? I like you don't you mess with your health. Your friend onlydia

Oh my Gosh no you didn't just say she let her seslf go.As you know it happened to me after I got into a relationship. YOu know why I didn't go anyplace andy more. I stayed at home more and waited for him. I sat and watched TV and tried to be the perfect girlfriend. Do they go and take a walk at night and go dancing or what ever they used to do. You have a good day. I need a nap. your friend onlydia

Hi ya bunnybon7 I don't think I have ever heard of resvertatrol. Does it suppress the appetite naturally or something? If I can find out a bit more about it then I might give it a whirl myself!

im not sure. my son says its natural. he looked it up on the internet. but he takes Hoodia also and it does suppress appetite so we are not sure. thats something else he gets at the health food store.

I have heard about it, but only for general health instead of weight loss. I used to be part of a work-from-home company similar to Amway which sold a product containing Resveratrol. I'd usually have a spoonful of the product with dinner.

It didn't help with my weight, but I noticed I was able to sleep without feeling groggy when I woke up the next morning.

Hi bunny, the only cure I know for weight loss is moderate eating, regular exercises, and a lot of hard work. I have never heard of any resveratrol (whatever it is!) Cheers and happy Mylotting

Well i did not hear about the mentioned pills, but i am taking Sibutramine Monohydrate Capsules these days, which is helping me to cut down the amount of food intake, it is anti obesity and anti hunger. it kills hunger, but got too many side effects like insomnia, aneroxia and all that.

No, I've not heard of that one. There are a couple of things on the Australian market too but I'm not familiar with their details. A lot of the stuff available in your country doesn't get approval here. Sometimes, I'm not sure if that's a good thing.
