I started taking slimquick 5 days ago, I have already lost 4 pounds. I only started taking 1 pill before lunch and dinner because I wanted to introduce this into my system slowly. The direction call for 3 pills each time but because I had bad luck with the stacker 3's I took years ago I really wanted to be careful. I have eaten a little better than normal but not as good as I should so I am very impressed with the results. I am very curious to see what taking 2 pills is going to do. I have had no weird side affects from taking the slimquick and I am very satisfied so far.
