I seriously am not a healthy person, though I do eat veggies and drink lots of water, but I smoke, drink socially and never diet..ever. My mother in-law said she lost 3 inches off her waist in 1.5 months by taking just a teaspoon of flaxseed a day.. (she puts it in her oatmeal) Well, I figured, I should try it since she NEVER tries anything and is really skeptickal like me about everything. It was only $1.99/bag (ground flaxseed) at Trader Joe's and I've been puting one teaspoonfull in a glass of milk for 3 days now and my stomach looks smaller (I'd say I lost alomost an inch) and feels empty ALL the time! But I eat regularly: meats, rice, soda.. AWESOME! I'm still in utter disbelief! It didn't make me go to the bathroom like I assumed..I mean nothing changed and I don't feel anything weird, I can just feel I digest foods faster in the day.. This is just so cool, I had to share! It's sooo worth it to try it, REALLY! PLUS I got online and read the benefits for menopause and balancing estrogen levels..fights off breast cancer, prevents swelling like migrains, water retention..etc..!!! WTH is this! It's on the net, just google it!!! It's AMAZING!! But who cares, lol--> my tummy is small!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO'S LAST TO KNOW ABOUT THIS??? HMM, I might up my dose to two teaspoonfulls per day--> heheheh!!
