1. What product am I pitching? I mentioned I was a part of a group where a lady sold skinnyfiber. If you found something n my spark page saying I endorse something, let me know where. I am not pitching ANY product. This is my opinion on the topic of skinnyfiber based on what experience I had.
2. I see that people have great success, I never said they didn't.
3. Losing 20-30 pounds in one month compared to the standard healthy weight loss of 1-3 pounds per week maximum is a lot of weight. Losing roughly 5 pounds a week is not a healthy choice to me.

You can sell it, take the pill, and do as you please. I will stick with what has been proven safe for decades and as my doctor recommends for me and my heath needs. That is exercising, being active, and monitoring what I eat along with healthy habits in all areas of my life. This product has been out for a few years and I don't like not knowing exactly how it works, or the lack of answers and long-term effects of skinny fiber. Everyone makes a different choice and I feel that taking a pill to lose weight instead of learning how to make better choices and create good habits is not a lifelong solution to being healthy. As far as being endorsed by dr.oz, I don't know how much he researched the product or what he studied, but I have a hard time believing any TV doctors endorsement of a product.

Just curious Sarah looks like you commented about my reply due to the fact that you are trying to pitch your product . People are having great success with our product and It's not a rapid weight loss . Skinny Fiber has been Highly endorsed by DR. Oz and many others . It's not just a weight loss product it is also has other health benefits too!

I had previously been a part of a group where a lot of people took skinny fiber and the groups leader was a seller of skinny fiber. After seeing people lose 20-30 pounds in 4-5 weeks and her saying that exactly how skinnyfiber works was not known, I left the group. I don't think losing large amounts of weight at once is safe no matter how natural the product. People don't learn to make better choices for food and portions or exercises, it was the pill would take care of that. It would be great for a while, but not the best for learning to make healthy choices for life.

I am currently taking it my wife and son are taking it and are having great success with Skinny Fiber . It also has other health benefits as this is the reason my wife started taking it . Her Uncle has diabetes and his sugar was ranging in the 400 range and now it is in the 100s . Not saying that it will cure diabetes but it has helped them . Skinny Fiber is not just a weight loss solution or about getting enough fiber in your diet .www.skinnyfibergetsresults.com

Just as a side note, "Dr Oz suggests" is never a recommendation for anything. His endorsement is meaningless at best, and suspect at worst. Don't listen to him for weight loss advice.

I save my money and eat my fiber through my carbs.. Aka heavy vegetables, fruit and complex carbs like heavy danish ryebreads.. Fiber just keeps the stomach moving- if eating correctly and drinking enough I feel these type of pills are not necessary..

I have never heard of them but as with any other "miracle product" I tend to be skeptical.

I have tried it! I am currently using it and it is WORKING!! I love it! I liked it so much I became a distributor for Skinny Body Care. If you are looking to try it yourself please feel free to visit my site.
It is an all natural supplement. No caffeine, so no jitters! It's main ingredient is Glucomannan which Dr. Oz suggests taking if trying to lose weight.

I hope this helps!

I don't buy fiber capsules over the counter. I make sure they come from someone reputable.

I have not tried Skinny Fiber. If you look at the reviews on Amazon, you will find some people who say it's fabulous, and just about as many who say it's crap and a waste of money. Any of these types of products usually tell you to take them in conjunction with eating a healthy well balanced diet, and exercising.

So I save my money and just do the healthy well balanced diet and exercise part. I lost the weight and am maintaining.

The problem with looking for a "quick fix" like some kind of supplement-- it does not teach you portion control and how to choose healthy foods. Even people who've had gastric bypass surgery-- they can lose the weight but later on gain it all back. IF they don't change their eating habits and get some exercise. Also, supplements are not regulated by the FDA. They might contain the ingredients they say they do. And they just as likely, might not.

Personally, I think all these companies hawking these products, are just preying on people's desires for some kind of quick & easy fix, for a problem that is really more complicated and can't be solved just by swallowing pills.

Has anyone tried skinny fiber capsules? apparently it's all natural and helps with a variety of conditions. pros? cons?

Nothing tastes as good as skinnier is going to feel!
