This looks pretty good. I read a lot of positive reviews on Amazon. Dr. Oz likes it, etc.

I hate pills so I ordered the Slimstyles PGX granules.

Thanks for the mention. I had never heard of this stuff. Although I did read about glucomannan in Jeff O'Connell's Sugar Nation. That is a good book, incidentally. Jeff writes for many strength and health publications, and recently found out that he is prediabetic although he is 6'3" and 190#.

Just not true that you have to be fat to get diabetes.
