Chromium: anyone taken this to suppress appetite or lose weight?

I read that chromium could possibly help with food cravings, and also with the metabolism of fat. So I gave it a go and have been taking it for a couple of weeks. It appears that I've dropped a couple of pounds.Plus, my appetite has decreased somewhat. A coupe of pounds doesn't sound a great deal, I realise, but as someone who practically has to remove a body part to lose weight - this is big grin

I'd be interested to know if anyone else has tried chromium and whether it had any effect on your weigh/appetite? Positive or negative.

Yes it's well know to control blood sugars! I take it regularly and have recently given a bottle to a friend of mine and she has reported it has helped massively with sweet cravings!

Sorry for the late reply - I have taken it before and I think it helped but I can't remember how much I took. I have seen suggested 200mg morning and 200mg at lunch. How much are you taking?

Oops - slightly delayed response here. I'm taking 200mg twice a day. After the initial reduction in cravings, my appetite now seems to be out of control grin Mind you, that may be because I've upped the gym work a tad. I'll keep taking it and hope things settle down.

Good luck with it, I'm going to try too, and try to make sure I take it! Remembering the second dose is the problem...

Sounds interesting. I'm going to give it a go I think.

cinnamon is also supposed to be good for stabilising blood sugar. I often have a pukka cinnamon tea in the afternoon when i have an energy slump- it might be placebo effect but it usually perks me up and stops me snacking.
