Caprylic Acid, Capryla and My Weight Loss

December 4, 2009 at 9:58 pm 4 comments

For me, the Capryla tagline fits right on–it’s willpower in a bottle.  In my case, caprylic acid was the key to ending 25 years of unsuccessful dieting.  

Less than 5% of dieters succeed in getting the weight off and keeping it off for two years.  Yet, over 80% of weight loss surgery patients succeed.   This is simply because they have an internal mechanism that doesn’t allow them to overeat.  In fact, they eat only about 500 calories a day after surgery. 

Even as I faced the knife, I couldn’t stop eating.  I was overwhelmed and sickened by my relationship with food–eating was my solution to every problem.  Food was my master, my enemy, my comfort, my shame, my reward, my slow killer, yet my protector.  Food calmed me down and gave me strength, food drained the life out of me. 

An alcoholic can live without a drink, but a food addict can’t live without food. 


I kept thinking about what would happen if I had that surgery–I’d be forced to eat less than 500 calories a day, and it was almost guaranteed I would lose the weight.  As a surgery patient, that is accepted.  As a dieter, it is extreme.  We fat, dieting Americans are constantly warned to make sure we are “eating enough calories,” yet the method with the high success rate–weight loss surgeries–severely restrict calories into the low hundreds.

“Your metabolism will slow down,” they say.  “Your body will think it’s starving.”

Is my body that stupid?  Did my body really not know I had 80 pounds of extra fuel when it had to pull itself out of bed every morning?  No one was starving anytime soon.  How could my metabolism not know that?  And, if that was true, that we need to get enough calories to lose weight, why did the weight loss surgery patients succeed, while the “make sure you get enough calories” camp continues to fail miserably?

As I stood at the brink of weight loss surgery, I wondered, “Is there a way to have an external mechanism, avoid surgery, but get the same results?”  When I asked one gastroenterologist why I couldn’t just eat 500 calories on my own until the weight was off, he said I’d be too hungry to succeed.  Only the surgery would stop the hunger.

Then, quite by accident, I found the external mechanism with Capryla.  Cheap little inocuous white pills with essential fatty acids like caprylic acid, all derived from normal foods.  In a week, it was like the shackles were loosed.  Four days after I began taking , food lost all of its power over me.  I could take it or leave it.  I wasn’t hungry.  I felt sane and clear-headed.  My moods stabilized, my confidence soared.  I only knew I was hungry when my stomach would rumble, and then I’d be fine with two bites of food.  I was living like I’d had gastric banding–without going under the knife. 

I lost 76 pounds in four months and I’ve kept it off.  Please know, I was not a yo-yo dieter, I had been dieting for 25 years but never really lost.  Except for two short exceptions at age 20 and 27, the scale only kept creeping up. 

So, this site is dedicated to the amazing discovery I stumbled upon that finally made the impossible, possible.  It didn’t require blood, financial investment or time.  And for the first time in my life, my mind is free to think without constant thoughts of food dominating the mental conversation.  I’m free at last. 

I’m not the first to learn about or try caprylic acid for weight loss.  This information simply shouldn’t be so hard to find that we have to stumble upon it.  Everyone trying to lose weight should have this information so they can see if it works for them. 

Take a look around the site and learn a bit more about caprylic acid.  Of course, you can just run down to the store and start taking it and see if, after a week, it starts to help you.  However, I recommend Capryla not only because they offer the best formula that combine a number of fatty acids and other nutrients, they also offer a lot of guidance about how to use it to succeed. 

Enjoy my blog and please, keep in touch with your own results!

    I can not find “Capryla” anywhere. Where do you obtain it from?

    My experience is similar to yours. I’ve not been overweight BUT I had watched muscle turn to fat and my body was devastated through abuse of sweets and I had a lot of chronic infections that I knew were based on my crap diet. I took caprylic acid capsules and for the first time in my life, NO was not about will-power (of which I didn’t have much), it was about appetite. I just didn’t want food that wasn’t REAL food. I felt free from the shackles like you say and it was incredibly liberating. I never want sweets and have to force it mostly when I’m under pressure at parties or a coworker has baked something. And this is someone who customarily had crap right after breakfast, an hour before and after lunch and only ate dinner if it was lucky enough to meet my face before the corner store fed it sour patch kids and other garbage. I ate so many sweets, I’d hide them from friends and family– people don’t suspect you are a junkie when your body doesn’t tell on you, but it’s no less miserable.

    So excited to have stumbled upon this post.

    I have struggled for the past 8 years myself (in fact, it is the first time I have even admitted that to myself). I have always tried to be active, but I have found that my efforts at the gym, though they are helpful in many ways, will not help me to achieve my goals.
    Over the past 3 years my appetite and general digestion have felt so off. After many trips to doctors, and homeopathic specialists, none had given me substantial advice or direction. I finally tried an elimination diet of sorts, which technically worked but has become very difficult to maintain given my commute and work schedule.
    I have finally realized that I may have an imbalance of bacteria in my stomach that could be the catalyst for many of these problems. I’ve always tried to educate myself on the various causes and supplements that exist and just recently discovered this one. I sincerely hope that Caprylic Acid will help with this. The feeling you describe is something I once had and very much long to feel again. I would really like to be in control of my body and it can prove to be very difficult, especially when you cannot pinpoint the problem and there is no one who understands what you’re going through.

    Thank you for posting this. Hopefully it will help spread the word about the epidemic concerning the overuse of antibiotics and steroidal medication which I believe is a huge factor in causing these issues for many people.

    PS I know this post is from ’09 but writing this was incredibly therapeutic 🙂
