Recently I have read several articles on this and thus a bit confused on it all together. So if anyone out there has any idea or success/failure with this please post. I want to lose the last 50 pounds I have around my abdominal area yet I am only fluxuating right now. Ugh! Thank you Have a great day!:) Merry Christmas!

I haven't heard anything but I agree with James. Try it out. Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't. I am curious though. How is it suggested that the ginger is used? Fresh, supplement, in a particular recipe, etc…?

I found a jar of pre-chopped ginger recently and have been using it. It's like prepared garlic.

Ok where?

They sell it in the grocery store chain that I frequent (Stop & Shop), in the the produce aisle. So like Carol mentioned below, they may carry it in your local grocer.

This one was from Whole Foods. Do you want me to go check on the name for you so you can see what stores might carry it in your area?

I don't remember which store I was in, but suspect since it's organic that it must have been Whole Foods.

Actually, I ran into it again yesterday and it was in a local store called Down to Earth. That's in Hawaii only, so online might be your best resource. It is tasty and easy to use.

I use ginger root on occasion. Don't have many recipes that call for it though.

Good to know. I use raw garlic all the time. I used to use dried but not so much anymore. I have an excellent mincer and microplane so it's just as easy to use it fresh.

I believe it is the same as with any food/drink/med/suppliment. One's metabolism may react in its own wayto this herb. Some folks may have a good response to it, others may have no response to it.
