What's it supposed to do? Don't waste your money!! If there was a magic pill out there-it would be very popular and on the news and no one would be overweight. Eat right and exercise-that's the secret-along with motivation and determination!

This type of comment of which I have made quite a number
myself should be STICKIED to the top of this forum and all new posters made to read it.

The WHOLE point of fatsecret is based on the only proven theory of weight loss that you measure how much you actually consume and then try to burn off more than you eat or drink with exercise or regular activity hence creating a caloric deficit, hence weight loss


Its really quite simple to understand but clearly quite difficult for many to take on board...

Why don't you try googling bee pollen?

It's a forum and people respond how they see fit based on the question raised

Every study of bee pollen recorded no benefit beyond that a simple multi-vitamin would provide.

More worryingly there are reports (though no studies of that I could find) which seem to indicate bee pollen can cause serious allergic reactions in some people. Up to and including Anaphylaxis.

Given my family history of Bee/Wasp related allergies I certainly wouldn't risk taking it.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

amber- taking pollen doesn't affect you if you are allergic to bees. Polen is from the plants themselves. No bee related venom in it. People usually take it to help them build up antibodies to allergens in the air. Generic bee pollen really won't help you do that. You need to purchase it from a beekeeper in the area that you reside so you can help build your immunities to things on your own area and not say, in Canada or Mexico or wherever they have gotten the pollen from.
I am not sure if I have heard of it as related to weight loss.
I raise bees, btw!
** Goal 1- 20 pounds
** Goal 2- get back down to wearing size 16 jeans
** Goal 3- normal blood pressure
** Goal 4- well below "One" Derland



Blessings,
