Konjac for weight loss
In one of my nursing journals this month was an article about using glucomannan (GM) for weight loss.
Recommended dosage is 1 gram 3x/day, 1 hour before meals.
Apparently it absorbs 50times its weight in water. Says not to take the capsules as they can swell in your esophagus and cause choking-the candy is banned in several countries for this reason. After reading the article I remember we used to get candy in Mexico that contained this product, it was pulled off the shelves last time I was there.
Interesting article. If anyone decides to eat their Konjacs to lose weight let me know how it goes. I'm way too fond of mine to turn them into flour!
