Hi Lindsay,

I've never heard of anyone gaining weight with Skinny Fiber... I'm wondering if maybe it's due to water retention. I eat too much salt because I love the taste, but that does cause water retention in some people. If you like salt like me, maybe that could be a cause since you're supposed to increase your water intake while taking Skinny Fiber.

Not to get too personal, but I'm also wondering if your bowel movements are regular cause the extra weight and inches in the waist could be from constipation. Skinny Fiber usually increases the number of bowel movements people have, but you do need to drink enough water to keep things moving (if you know what I mean). I've heard some people say that in the beginning it took a week or so to regulate their BMs because they were irregular for so long that they were kind of backed up. Sorry to be so graphic... just thinking this through.

Regarding the stomach discomfort in the morning with your first dose, I'd suggest two different options:
#1 - Take it in the afternoon (before lunch) and in the evening (before dinner) instead and see if that makes a difference. Since you said it doesn't happen in the afternoon, maybe your stomach is just more sensitive in the mornings.
#2 - If you really prefer to take it the morning, try opening the capsules and mixing it in some yogurt, then drinking water after. I'm thinking maybe taking it with food may help. I know we've had many people who don't like taking pills break open the capsules and either mix in tea or yogurt and it has the same effect.

Finally, regarding not feeling full faster, this might be because you're eating too fast. Everyone that I've talked to that has told me they don't notice the fuller effect has told me that they're done eating within 10-15 minutes. It actually takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register that your stomach is full, so I'd try slowing down and paying close attention to your bodys signals.

I hope some of this information helps! Since you had reverse effects with Metabolife, it's possible that Skinny Fiber simply isn't for you. The fact is, not everything works for everyone. However, I'd give it a good 2-3 weeks before coming to that conclusion. Remember, you do have 30-day money back guarantee with Skinny Fiber, so if you continue to take it as directed for 2-3 weeks and still find it's not for you then you can opt to send back the unused portion for a full refund.

Wishing you the best,
