Product Description
Some of us enjoy a good fatty meal from time to time! We have always worried about the dietary intake of fat from this type of food. Chitosan is found in the exoskeletons of crustaceans. It is processed by removing the shells from shellfish such as shrimp, lobster, and crabs. The shells are then ground into a pulverous powder.

This powder is then stripped of specific chemical groups which allows the compound to actively "soak up fats." Basically stated, chitosan is a special fiber which is able to "soak up" or absorb anywhere from six to ten times its weight in fat and oils.

However, Chitosan is able to significantly bind with fat molecules and convert them into a form which the human body does not absorb. It prevents the absorption and storage of fat by converting into a gel which "traps" the fat. In some sort, it creates a "grease ball" from this excess fat, which is too large to be absorbed by the body. It then becomes an inert substance and gets passed through the body.

I dont believe this claim. Your body needs some fats, so absorbing all fat cant possibly be healthy. Sounds like a fad tablet to me. Not a doctor so open to be proved wrong .

Thanks for posting Mrgregory904 :)

It can restrict the bodies' ability to absorb certain vitamins. Might be worth reading up on before buying :)

What's wrong with exercise? And it's free.

Don't like these kind of deals. Is it a hot deal or just another fad.
Only one way to lose weight, use more calories than you eat.
Short cuts are a waste of time, maybe dangerous.

Are calories the be all and end all though?

What harm is taking ground up shells going to do? It is only as bad as taking a vitamin tablet or other supplement. I vote hot.

And i like the eclectic range that appear on this site!!! So long may it continue.
Good find.

Sounds like mumbo-jumbo.
Is the "Ch" in Chitosan pronounced the same way as in Chivalry ??

No, it's a hard "K" (followed by a long "eye") the name is based on the molecule which makes up the exoskeletons of arthropods such as shrimp and insects ; chitin

It doesn't work as an aid to weight loss - it seems to be far too low a dose to have any effect - and the Advertising Standards Authority has banned claims that it does. Research suggests that the amount of fat it prevents you absorbing is insignificant.

Once again it's back to eating better and getting more exercise I'm afraid.

If you want to believe stories like that you're welcome, and I've got a bottle of Snake Oil you might like to buy which will cure... what was it you said you wanted cured again?

I got the joke - I teach biology to teenagers. I find the most effective method is to get the rude jokes in before them.

If its actual snake oil I may be interested, very high in Omega 3 amongst other things. Although as a reptile keeper thats probably cruel!

Simply match 1g of protein to 1lb of bodyweight, 0.4g of fat to each lb of bodyweight and less than 20g of carbs a day. Much better and will lose you body fat hand over fist. Not magic, just the way your body likes to lose fat (because it is used an energy source).
#15
So if I'm 140lb my daily intake should be 140g of protein, 56g of fat and <20g carbs? Not that I need to lose weight obviously, just thinking for someone else I know.
#16
Essentially yes, that'll work fine. Make sure you have a good mix of omega 3's and 6's and plenty of dark green veg such as broccoli or spinach - nothing like tomato's or carrots as they are loaded with carbs.
