Notes for this study:
In overweight women reporting intense carbohydrate cravings at least twice a week, supplementation of 1,000mcg chromium appeared to reduce hunger and cravings over the course of weight weeks which resulted in a greater reduction in overall food intake (25%) than did placebo (8%). This reduction in food intake led to weight loss, but was independent of any changes in glucose metabolism.
