Reduces bloating and you see results
I have been taking them for almost a year. I do give my body breaks from them (typically taking them 2 months and then resting for a month) ....I can tell the difference in my body and it does help reduce the bloating and extra water weight. It says take two together but I take one in the morning before breakfast and another in the evening before my last meal.

No longer glued!
I had been stuck at 365 since March 2016 (I had started at 395 in July of 2015) I decided that it was time to try something to get unstuck from this number. After 96 hours of taking the product regularly I am now 358 pounds. I highly recommend this product to those who may be stuck on a certain number. I look forward to further results with this supplement and regular exercise.

Great choice to buy
I've been taking these pills with CLA and a multivitamin and I already see the difference in my midsection. I was skeptical at first but I decide to give it a shot. Drink tons of water and I do suggest working out at least 2-3x a week.

I seriously didn't know I was retaining water. Until I went to the gym, and took personal training. I told my trainer I was seeing the results on the scale, but not on my body. She told me I could be retaining water, and that is normal, because more than half of our body is made out of water and blood cells. She recommended that I look into supplement that will help me remove that water retention and that's when I went to GNC. They highly recommend Waterex. I tried it for a few days saw a difference laid off it and saw another difference just started retaking it and in just 3 days of use I can tell my body is responding well to the supplement again. For sure I will go back to GNC, and purchase another bottle. I have seen the results and tested it out in more than one person. I'm very happy to say that I'm not only loosing body fat, but also that extra water in the body we really don't need.
