    I have used chromium picolinate in the past with no measurable results, although I know people that used it with sucess. I recently read that you have to take, I think, about 800mg a day to see results.

    What dose did you use to lose?

    I think I will get some from the drug store and try a higher dose. I think what I was taking was 200mg maybe.

    I want to lose a few pounds at least. I have been trying to exercise more by walking around my office during the day. We are in an old retail store and around the perimether of the room is about 100 steps = 1/10 of a mile.

    I am near the bathroom, but I try to go around the room to it and back that way also. I figure some is better than none. Plus it helps keep me from getting stiff.

    I also do some leg lifts, etc while I am getting ready in the morning to help some. I had the Chromium from ProEnergy before and took one with my morning meds with no measurable effect.
