I honestly wouldn't buy anything Purina if you need your cat to lose weight. My cat gained all her weight by eating their food, I tried using their new healthy weight one that you have the sample of, didn't see any results- if anything she got bigger... Now she's on low fat innova and blue buffalo and she's getting measured feedings. I'm hoping that works. Purina is 90% corn and the rest is bi-products. The only thing I'm buying from them anymore is the litter.

Not that one. My cat was on Iams Healthy Weight for like 10 years, and while she stopped gaining weight, she didn't lose weight. My vet finally told me last year that I had to get some weight off of her or I'd have to start giving her insulin shots soon. So...Now she's on prescription weight loss food, but she went from almost 18 lbs to 12ish lbs in a year. It's expensive, but she's almost 13 years old. I can do this for a few years...she's my baby.

I haven't tried it, but I do have a cat that should lose about a pound and a half. So, I'd like to get some feedback too.

I just got a $1 off coupon so I thought I would try it. Mr. President needs a little weight control but have not yet bought it.

Has anyone tried this food with their cat? I got a sample of it the other day and thought it might help my chubby calico lose weight. I was just wondering if anyone had tried it and seen any results.
