The ingredients in ThinStick have been researched in four robust scientific studies conducted in Europe and published in medical journals. These studies have shown the following.
ThinStick has an immediate effect. Four and eight hours after consuming ThinStick:
Subjects reported feeling 30% less hungry
Subjects reported a 25% reduction in their desire to eat and 16% reduction in preoccupation with or thoughts of food.
Women who took ThinStick (with yogurt) at breakfast consumed 25-34% less food at subsequent meals, with no compensatory eating for a full 24 hours.
ThinStick is an excellent tool for maintaining weight loss. Study participants completed 8 weeks of a weight loss regimen, then 4 months of weight maintenance. Those who took ThinStick daily during the weight maintenance phase experienced no significant weight gain! In the same 4-month period, control participants (who did not take ThinStick) gained back 50% of the weight lost.
After 25 weeks of taking ThinStick, participants reported a reduction in overall feelings of hunger.
