You read that right.
Inspired by myself losing a few pounds (7-10 lbs, not really sure) without doing much effort for the past 1 1/2 months - the effect of having to commute to Makati from QC every weekday for work, plus eating only half a cup of rice during lunch, with more ulam and sometimes a banana - I have decided to make a more conscious effort to get to a healthy weight.
So here comes Carbtrim. Seeing Chico Garcia and Delamar Arias post photos of their food and Carbtrim on the side, I found myself thinking about trying the product. I've seen a few blogs here and there of people trying it, some attesting to the efficiency of the drink.
So today, I bought three, yes, 3 packs of Carbtrim. One in apple flavor, and the two in lemon. I just tried the apple variant a while ago and it actually almost tastes like regular iced tea, just with a faint, bearable aftertaste.
I drank the tea before eating dinner. Took half a cup of rice and fish just in case it was true that the drink will make you feel full quickly. True enough, just after a few mouthfuls, I felt full, although I started out a bit famished. Halfway through my meal I actually wanted to stop eating, but I didn't because sayang naman yung food.
Some would say that maybe I felt full because I drank liquid before eating. Trust me, I already tried with drinking a full glass of water before eating, but it was not really effective for me.
So, Carbtrim. You can buy this at leading supermarkets and drugstores. I bought mine at Mercury Drug. It comes in a box of six sachets, for Php144/box. A bit steep for those in a budget.
Before trying out this product though, if you have serious conditions or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your doctor first. :)
