Has anybody heard of a product called "Lipolean". It is suppose to be a fat trapper in helping to lose weight. The information specifically states helping with IBS. Just search lipolean. Anybody tried this? Any success stories or did I just waste $34.00? Help!

Hi Michelle:I haven't heard of it, and I'm always thinking of losing weight (I belong to Weight Watchers.) If you go to http://www.webmd.com,[/URL] click on consumer and go to their message boards there is one that says something like, "Holiday Recipes with Martha McKittrick". Martha is a registered dietician who answers questions on weight loss for webmd.com. She knows all of the dietary supplements.You might want to pose that question to her. There are other boards on weight loss but that is the one a dietician is available on, and you'll get the most reliable info from her.I've posted questions to her before on IBS C and fiber, connected with weight loss, and she has been a big help to me!Good luck. Let me know what you find out!

Hi Michelle:I did a quick search this morning and it seems that Lipolean is one of the products (like Xenical) that causes the fat you eat to not be absorbed but eliminated when you go to the bathroom.If you have D you definitely do not want to take it as it would make it much worse. I'm not sure what it would do to a C person. But one thing to keep in mind with these fat trappers is that the long term effects are not known yet. I'm not sure if vitamins or minerals are lost at the same time the way they are with Olestra. A dietician would have to answer that. If they are you would have to make sure to take vitamin and mineral supplements.So check with Martha McKittrick. Another well know dietician, Elizabeth Somer, answers questions on webmd.com but not in the same format on a bulletin board. However, I just discovered she has her own website, ElizabethSomer.com. I wasn't very impressed with the website setup itself, but she is very good and you can ask her questions on it. I have 4 of her books now and have learned so much (I think). That's not saying I remember it, though!
On Elizabeth's website the first time you visit it is a bit slow because informational blocks come up first. After that, though, when you go to the site they don't come up.Good luck, again.
