Is Zetacap just fiber?
« on: 12/05/2005 17:01:21 »
HI guys, I purchased my zetacap pills and then I read a review that said this product is just Fiber and that metamucil will work just as good and to save your money.  Have you guys heard this at all?  I just took my first pill and I really don't feel hungry but I don't know if its just my mind playing tricks on me or what.
I'm glad I saw this site.  I really need to lose 50 pounds.  I graduate from lawschool in two months and want to at least have lost about 20 by then.  My family is so into whether you are "heavy" as they say or not!!!!!  I just need to lose weight and exercise for my health!
I'm so glad I found this site, any of your comments would be great!

Thank you!

"You don't have to be great to get started, but you do have to get started to be great." - Les Brown

I love that quote as it simplifies what we should already know. I haven't tried ZetaCap. Like everyone else I was reaseearching the gastric bypass surgery and came across the ZetaCap solution. I ran into a forum one day. One post from someone suggested to try good old-fashioned fiber for the same benefits before trying the pills.

Well for the last two weeks, I have done just that. I incorporated 15 to 20 grams of fiber a day in the form of vegetables, but more so in the form of Sugar-Free Metamucil. I had a teaspoon of Metamucil with 8oz. of water three times a day at least 30 minutes prior to eating a meal.

I promise you, I have never felt so full without actually eating. It reduced what I ate during a sitting by at least 500 calories per meal. I am literally unable to eat. I also adopted a high-protein, low carbohydrate meal plan in, and as a result have lost 21 pounds in two weeks.

The only downfall I see is that my stomach appears more bloated then usual. Sometimes it feels so tight that nothing else could possibly fit in, so I also encourage you to drink plenty of water to reduce the bloating affect.

I hate exercise, but I love to dance, so I also incorporated a daily dance routine and stretching regimen into my plan.

Moral of the story: Challenge yourself first with the natural approach of good old-fashioned fiber. The benefits help to reduce, heart disease, cholestorol, and allows for more nutrients to be received by the foods we eat, as the fiber naturally slows down the way we process our foods and nutrients after consumption, thereby also contributing to that long lasting full feeling.

In addition, eat all day, never allow room for hunger. As long as you are snacking on some good vegetables, you will be ok. The other benefit of drinking the fiber is it actually taste like drinking Tang without the sugar. It actually tastes good. If snacking on fruit, try snacking on berries, such as strawberries, and do away with the apples, bananas, and watermelon.

I wish you all great success, and I hope this helps.



Trying to stay motivated.
