Following dosage of FenuLife or placebo in a beverage alongside a standardized breakfast, every 30 minutes for 3.5 hours subjects rated their feelings of hunger, satiety, fullness and prospective food consumption using visual analog scales (VAS). Samples of blood for analysis of blood glucose and insulin response were also taken. Subjects were then given an unlimited lunch buffet and recorded food intake for the rest of the day.
