My friend has been taking carb blockers and he swears they work. The thing is he is constantly goin to the bathroom. Do these actually work or are they expensive laxatives?

Not worth the money, IMO.

I tried them and think I should have take a $10 and $20 bill and burned them for all the good I got spending $30 on the carb blockers.

why would you want to "block" carbs anyway? in the 80s everyone thought fat made you fat, now they think it's carbs. It's the f**kin calories aaaaaaarrgghhhhhhh

There is a much cheaper carb blocker available. Close your mouth so they cant get inside you. Sneaky little carbs.

I cannot see any logic regarding blocking carbs via an expensive pill. Just dont eat them if you are on a low carb diet. Isnt that the easier solution?

yeah...i didnt think it would work. I dont see how a pill or whatever can tell the difference between carbs and nutrients. Sounds phony to me....but needed to get some opinions

if they sell it, there is science to it. it may be a complex protein that has a complimentary region that ataches to carbs(sacharides), and this protein may be indigestable. just a guess on what those pills do.

I'm assuming that this means that the carb blocker negated the effects of the pill? That is ****ing insane. That should...that should be on the bottle.
Wait.
Is it on the bottle?


Strangely enough, the first thing that came to my sick mind was that the carb blockers raped your aunt. I have problems.

Sounds strangely reminiscent of a Friends episode :scratch:

anyway, I'll chime in as well that carb blockers are a waste of money. Your friend would be better off buying ALN products and getting something for his money besides dirty underwear
