What are your thoughts on Chromium supplements to reduce sugar cravings/burn fat? Seems to be the newest craze.

It’s been a while since I’ve done reading up on this, have it somewhere referenced in my computer, but the jist IIRC is it can be effective for insulin sensitivity, how much it actually helps fat loss is completely context dependent on your current insulin sensitivity, but still ultimately small ball compared to bigger lifestyle change & not really going to do much if already healthy.

As for the cravings part, that’s where I’ll have to dig up some of the research papers I have logged in some file on my computer somewhere.

I’ll get back with ya tonight or tomorrow (if not feel free to ping again, rampant ADHD makes me prone to forgetting haha)

If you want I have a document on chromium & other glucose disposal agents if interested. Basically just a brief summary of how effective & such. Just send me an email to bowtiedox@gmail.com saying “Bromium” & I’ll send it

As a veterinarian who also spends more time than seems sensible debunking overcomplications and oversimplifications and magical internet potions, I really loved and appreciated this. I'm not sure what transpired on Twitter (and this further validates my decision not to be there), but I'm sorry you got voluntold for internet drama. :) I have a metabolism that would make me an excellent feedlot heifer, so I am sometimes tempted to feel sorry for myself because I can't just eat whatever I want. Then I watch friends work harder than me and get better results and have to admit that a large part of my problem is just math. :) This was fun to read and very thorough.
