Are u hungry??? The more pellets u take doesn't increase weight loss. If u are not hungry, u are losing at the rate ur body wants to. Not being hungry is what ur looking for. The average weight loss for a woman is .5-.75 per day. U are definitely in this average. A lb a day, or more, for a woman is pretty rare! The advertisements are strictly that. Men can average a lb or more, but not many of us!! u are doing great!!
