Since menopause, I had the hardest time losing weight around my middle. I had done the Fat Flush diet on and off for several years and always had great success (not the supplements) until menopause hit. I had been taking the supplements for months and still no luck with the belly fat. Then I read a facebook status of Ann Louise Gittleman's page that said if you were having trouble losing belly fat to double the amount of GLA that was recommended and WOW! Within 3 days my mid section shrunk, even my husband noticed! This is one supplement I will never be without. If it's not working for you, you may need to take more!
