My wife and I started the homeopathic formula one night some months ago. The person who sold it to us told us it might be several days till our hunger subsided. We were so surprised because the very next morning -- we had no hunger at all. This is no B.S. We also continued to have no hunger problems at all through the diet -- but I accidentally used more drops than my wife an t hat might have had some impact on it. It works good.
