Experience

I gained 10kg inexplicably over the 3 months I took this pill. I’m a high performance university athlete who eats well and takes care of their body so it was surprising to be gaining weight and fat around the middle when the opposite should be happening. Had a full set of bloods taken and nothing out of the ordinary so have decided to try a new pill.
