You've got an interesting perspective and obviously are qualified to comment on this subject. Who knows, right?
I will say that for sure it's helped me. I've stopped drinking it for a week and my weight loss slows. I start drinking it a lot and my weight loss ramps up again. This is as controlled as I can get, tracking my meals and hitting the same numbers over the course of the test trial period.
But I'm not arguing with you, I posted the article above not so much in response to you, but the fact that I came across this article just this morning and I think the article as well as the website is really fantastic.
Anyway, like I said, I enjoyed reading your post and your perspective on it.
