I've been taking maca root for something like 3 months. I started taking it for my hormones, for more energy, and because it helps my anxiety. Well, I haven't been wearing jeans for sometime, I gained weight and got sick of buying more. I was down to one pair that fit. I found some really cheap so I measured myself to see what my size would be and to my surprise, I lost 3 to 4 inched from my hips and 3 to 4 from my waist! I haven't been eating differently, or exercising or anything like that. The only thing I could think of was the maca root. Can it cause you to lose inches?

6 to 8 inches lost over 3 months isn't too much. If I lost that in 1 week I can see a cause for alarm. I have no side effects. I just feel better! I think the people who get side effects are allergic to the radish/turnip.
That's good, the weight loss may occur due to the boost in energy positively effecting and raising your metabolism to help burn some extra calories here and there.
I realized that I have some what of a delay with weight loss. It wasn't the maca but when I did a week of hard house cleaning 3 weeks before that. I can work my butt off and I wont see the results for 3 weeks. I guess this is normal for women.
Don't get me wrong, my butt got bigger from it! My butt was always 10 inches bigger than my waist but now its 16 inches bigger! I know it has to be the maca. So it is true... If you want a bigger butt take the stuff lol
