I exercise alot so I use supplements. I took them same time as Clomid and I O'd so in my case it didn't affect and I am a small girl (5'1 and 56-57kg) so you think it would

If it was me, I honestly wouldn't mess with any kind of diet supplement, specially if you are having trouble in the TTC department. I'm sure it's probably ok to take, but I dunno... I guess having trouble TTC has made me paranoid of a lot of things lol.

Reading up about it.... why would you want to take it?

If you have Netflix, or know someone with it that will let you login and watch the netflix instant watch..... Watch the documentary Fat Head.
It's low budget but it is EXTREMELY informative about WHY we get fat and what we're eating to keep us this way.
After watching it, read up on Paleo/Primal eating.
