    This is what my vaithiyar (siddha doctor) asked me to do :-

    1 tablespoon kollu powder. 1 tablespoon small zeera(cummin seed). Boil in 4 glass of water to 1 glass. Drink in empty stomach every morning and evening.

    I drink it for 1 month..it was very effective but i got purging 2-3 times in a day. so i stop it !
    you will see the result in two weeks, i lost almost 3 kgs in 2 weeks.

    Dear,

    total weight lost of that month was 5 kgs. first 2 weeks i took the kollu in the morning and evening... no exercise, and no diet (but i don't take any fried foods).

    next 2 weeks, i took kollu once in a day (sometimes in the morning & sometimes in the evening)... same no exercise and no diet, i lost another 2 kgs.

    i can't take the purging, so i stop it and i start my diet and exercise..
    once in a while during weekends (if i'm at home), then i will take kollu now...sometimes do kollu rasam and drink it.
