I had stopped by my local Health Food Store to pick up some B12 (I take this daily) and the guy that owns the place told me about this diet supplement, Fuco-thin that is fairly new to his store (not saying much since he just opened about two months ago). He said with what I am doing, this might be something I’d like to add into the weekly diets.
I bought it - $49.99 (he had a $5.00 off coupon and gave me 15% discount too) so my cost was $39.09.
What is Fuco-thin?
Fucoxanthin, contained in FucoTHIN, is a compound that is found in several different types of seaweed. Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid (similar to lutein and lycopene), which is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage. Most fat-burning products work by creating a thermogenic effect in the body. FucoThin is unique because it creates a thermogenic effect without stimulating the central nervous system. Fuco Thin actually boosts your metabolism, specifically metabolizing visceral fat, the kind found around the belly, without giving you the jitters or causing you to lose sleep. While the discovery of the fat burning potential of fucoxanthin was ground-breaking, there was still one rather huge problem. In order to get the right amount of fucoxanthin to effectively burn fat, you would need to eat an outrageous amount of brown seaweed. FucoThin uses a proprietary process used to extract the fucoxanthin and make it available for human consumption.

Since I am going to try to be fairly good as far as food goes on vacation and my good intentions to keep up exercise (if looking at this past week is an indication – I need to INCREASE my exercise) – I thought I could add the Fuco-thin. There was no special diet to follow included with product – other than what information I found on this site: http://www.healthfoodemporium.com/garden-of-life/fucothin.php
