I'm very much a skeptic. I don't believe all these claims. But I heard that Fucothin can help people lose weight. As someone with a thyroid problem and with Syndrome X, I thought I would give it a try. After taking it, I have more energy and have lost weight at a fast rate when taking it. My skin has become softer and I can even wash dishes with dish soap that used to make me break out before. Dry patches below my elbows that I've had for years and years are almost gone. I purchased several more boxes and don't plan on running out.

Unfortunately the Fucothin made me gain weight. I upped my exercise to 4 hours a day, cut back on my food to less than 800 calories a day ... and I was still gaining FAT (my waist increased 3 inches in size in three weeks). I've stopped taking it and have again started losing weight. I also tried seaweed and seaweed also makes me gain weight. But then I have food allergies. And everytime I eat certain foods, I gain weight (not water but fat).
