How I adjusted my dosage
Since I really eat a light breakfast or sometimes not at all (always rushing for work lol), I just take 2 tablets a day, before dinner. You can always adjust how many tablets you eat before a meal, just do not eat more than the recommended amount, which for this case is 4 tablets. Also always make sure to separate each dosage at least 4-5 hours apart.
Appearance and taste
The size of the tablets aren't too big, they're at a acceptable size - size of the pinky nail. Texture is squishy and has a slight dark brown colour. It does have a slight herbal taste but nothing repulsive - you can only taste it if the tablet lingers on your tongue for a while.
This really increase my bowel movements like crazy (and this is a good thing!) I find my bowels making sounds 1 hour after my meals and (well this is a little) farts just keep coming wtf - WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS, you'll be going to the toilet more than usual.
The entire pack lasted me for 1.5 months (it is supposed to last you 20 days but I adjusted my dosage according to my meals) and I found my meal portions decreasing because I feel full easily. I'm also going to the toilet more often so I generally feel healthier and lighter.
My weight dropped 2KG but I paired my regime with simple yoga and I did not eat sweets, biscuits, carbonated drinks (coke) and sweet drinks (ice lemon tea). I basically ate fresh food, drank only plain water and brewed green tea.
Will I purchase this again?
Yes! I reaaaaally like that this improved my bowel movements! I do not pass my bowels everyday and suffer from occasional constipation so this is great. I also like that it prevents me from over-eating because I feel full easily. Every pack is also resealable so it is really handy!
The only thing I don't like about this is that I have to eat 30 minutes before my meals. I do not have a fixed timing for my meals so most of the time I just eat it just before. I do not notice much difference between eating them 30 minutes before and directing before a meal. But of course since DHC recommended to consume it 30 minutes before, that would be ideal.
