Smart For Life Appetite Suppressing Concentrate Drops Review

As you know from my profile, I will try just about anything to suppress my appetite in hopes of losing weight.  
So when I saw that Costco.com had these for sale I grabbed a case of 8 and eagerly anticipated their arrival.  At the time I ordered these there were no reviews on them, but the other Smart For Life products on Costco.com had very high reviews from customers.

I admit I only tried these twice and never again because I felt HUNGRIER than normal about 15-20 minutes after drinking the mixture.

The directions say: Squirt and mix up 2 tsp. with 8 fl oz of water.  Let your taste buds be your guide. (Makes up to 18 servings)

The ingredients are:
Water, Glycerine, Digestion Resistant Maltodextrin (Fibersol), Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Sucralose, Gum Acacia, Acesulfame Potassium, Glycerol Ester of Wood Rosin, FD&C Yellow #5, FD&C Yellow #6, Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Sodium Benzoate (preservative).

While these tasted quite nice,  I think the sucralose made me hungry. I have this problem with artificial sweeteners all the time... that is why I try to avoid them. This is the same reason I can't drink the Crystal Light On-The-Go packets.  Though I LOVE them, I just get ravenous after drinking them.
I did not experience
Any appetite suppression

All in all, this product was not a fit for me. Costco.com is no longer offering this product either.

As Jordan would say, "There are no short cuts, get your ass to the gym.". Sigh. Big sigh.
