Great stuff, with no side effects... but a tad expensive over time
on October 26, 2011
I purchased Zija Smart Mix on the recommendation of several friends. I mix one packet into a bottle of water and chill it in the fridge overnight, then drink it first thing in the morning. My appetite is squelched for the entire day, until late afternoon or later, and I find that I am not eating as much as I used to at dinnertime (not that I ate a lot anyway, but I notice a difference). It tastes somewhat like green tea, so it is palatable and easy to drink, although the bottle must be constantly shaken in order to keep the stuff from settling on the bottom. My only complaint is that Zija is expensive over time, and when I looked online to purchase another month's worth of packets, the price was at least $20 higher than my initial purchase. However, I guess the price is comparable to that of joining one of the more well-known weight-loss programs, and the upside is that you don't need to purchase special food. Zija doesn't mention weight loss as one of the benefits of the Smart Mix's use, but everyone I know has lost quite a bit of weight in a reasonably short period of time (e.g. 15-25 pounds in 6 weeks seems to be common among my friends) with absolutely NO side effects whatsoever. I am sensitive to many drugs and foods, and I haven't had any side effects either. I recommend this, along with a healthy diet and moderate exercise, such as walking, to lose pounds safely, and I will continue using it for the foreseeable future.
