What You Should Know
Life Extension Calorie Control Weight Management Formula claims to stop excessive eating and regulate digestion so carbohydrates do not impact blood glucose as quickly. While the green tea extract supplies EGCG, the dieter is not told how much of this crucial weight loss ingredient is included in the formula. The other two supportive ingredients may help slow digestion if taken before meals.
The official website for Life Extension Calorie Control Weight Management Formula offers a complete list of ingredients, product label and direct ordering. There are no testimonials on the Life Extension website.

LuraLean is a source of fiber. The name listed for the fiber is Propolmannan. This is the same ingredient commonly known as glucomannan, a water-soluble fiber. When glucomannan is taken before meals, with plenty of water, it absorbs that water and fills the stomach. This may prevent the dieter from consuming large amounts of food during a meal. Unfortunately, calorie dense foods can be consumed in small quantities and contain more calories than a larger, healthy meal.
Phase 2 white kidney bean extract prevents carbohydrates from being broken into tiny bits during digestion. The larger carbohydrates digest the same as the smaller carbohydrate bits, but they do not impact blood glucose as drastically. While there are studies supporting weight loss white taking white kidney bean extract, none support large amounts of weight loss.

The supplement ingredients are not stimulating and there are two proven weight loss ingredients, so the formula is sound, but the effect on weight loss may not be what the dieter expects. Without proper diet and exercise, it is not likely the dieter will lose any weight.
- White kidney bean extract may help regulate carbohydrate digestion.

- The price is comparable for members of the Life Extension website.
- No stimulants to boost metabolism.
- Non-members pay higher prices.
Life Extension Calorie Control Weight Management Formula may help the dieter eat less food volume, but that does not mean it helps them choose healthy foods with reduced calories. The price for non-members is far too high and the membership fee is quite expensive.
