does cla really help lose fat and cellulite. does it have any effect on fat loss or side effects?

Holy grail: Interestingly, conjugated linoleum acid (cla) has been shown to reduce body fat but not body weight in a few studies. I am not aware of its effects on cellulite as this is not solely a fat problem. Although major side effects are uncommon in the recommended dose range, it can have some undesirable side effects such as diarrhea.

Likely: Several studies have suggested a modest but statistically significant reduction of fat and an increase in lean body mass. At recommended dosage however, the weight loss is approx 1lb every 5 wks. Improvement in cellulite may result from weight loss but is not a direct result of the supplement.
