What can I do to prevent this in the future?
The grocery stores have no rules. Two of my friends and former BNI colleagues had their membership terminated due to the strict attendance policy. The strangers are the only ones that were truly grateful. Perhaps the best thing to do is to just stay away from the darned thing until we get some clarity. Hey, got some more insight on BNI.
Of the 23 trials they identified, 12 were methodologically sound enough to include in their analysis. The analysis revealed that some statistically significant weight loss occurred, but the magnitude of the effect is small and the clinical relevance is uncertain. They also found that gastrointestinal adverse events were twice as likely in the hydroxycitric acid group as in the placebo group.
