I had a friend recently offer to get me a kola nut. He said a co-worker was selling them, and he'd personally witnessed her drop 40 pounds. This friend wouldn't put me on-he's close, and he's going to just give me it, so it's not a money thing. He says that you break it into 31 pieces, and eat a piece a day. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them, especially first hand. What side effects are there? Is it effective? (I mean, the lady did lose 40 pounds).
