Irwin Naturals Maximum Strength 3-in-1 Carb Blocker® -- 75 Liquid Softgels
Second purchase, will continue to buy!
I started the no-to-low carb dieting back when Atkins made it's second round in the world, where it gained the most attention, back in the late 90's. Thru the years after, I find that eating carbs, breads & pastas especially, make me feel instantly tired & uncomfortably bloated. Although I don't eat carbs often still, I find this product really helps keep the carb surges in check, and now have my boyfriend taking one with a heavy carb meal too. (not a pill popper!) The ingredients separately are well documented to help, so added in one gel cap, perfect! It's also a winner that it can be taken WITH a meal, and not a half hour proceeding one. The gel cap is a bit big, but if my man can handle chocking one down, anyone can.

Best Carb Blocker I've tried
Been using this for 3 years now I think... My friend got me samples of it, and it actually worked the first day, so I went to Vitacost where they are much cheaper than any health food store, and get them every 3 months of so.. I don't take it every day, but before or after a big meal or a "bad meal" I take it to help myself out that next day! Love the fact that they are liquid inside so it hits the system better!

Product has kept my weight stable
I have been using Carb Blocker for about a year. My weight has remained stable, which was my goal.

Excellent product. It has worked for me.
I am very aware of what I eat and thought that sticking to a low glycemic index diet would help me lose weight. But it seems my body stores any carbs, good, bad or otherwise. So I didn't lose an ounce in 2 years. Out of desperation, I decided to give carb blockers a try. My first ones were from the UK, incredibly expensive and completely useless. So I started reading about them more intently on the www and discovered Irwin Carb Blockers, which got good reviews on all sorts of sites. I also discovered Vitacost.
They have absolutely made a difference and finally the weight is coming off. I've just added Vitacost CLA tabs to help with a tummy that has remained after a late-pregnancy miscarriage.
The carb blockers don't work overnight, it takes time but, if one is diligent in taking them with carb meals, they really do work.
I have to add I liked them better before Vitacost recently decided to hike the price of a bottle by 50% (in one go!). I have tried their own brand and they are not as effective and cause some stomach/intestinal turmoil.

Did Not Notice any difference
I thought I would try a Carb-Blocker, and I won't buy another again. I didn't notice it doing anything at all. Saffron Extract works much better.
