Just tried it this morning....
on February 22, 2012
A little about myself: I'm 24 and just looking to lose 10-15 lbs. I'm fairly active, I run at least 17 miles a week. As for my diet, during the week its most healthy, but all bets are off once I hit the weekend. I've been trying to lose these last 10 lbs, but I've hit a plateau these last few months. Now matter how much I switch up my exercise routine or clean up my diet, I just can't lose these last few pounds. All the weight is in my thighs, and despite how much I run, they still jiggle like jello.
Like most other people who ordered this product, I heard about Raspberry Ketones from Dr. Oz. I'm really hoping that he is right, and that the RK will "slice up the fat" in my thighs. I took my first pill this morning after breakfast. I only took one (even though the bottle says to take two) because Dr. Oz says you only need 100mg of RK. The bottle doesn't state the amount of RK in it, but I read other people's reviews and they said it contains anywhere from 200-600mg of RK.
So far, I haven't been hungry. Normally at work, I graze on food all morning. Today, my stomach just feels so full that the thought of food makes me feel sick. Not sure if its the actual product working or just a placebo effect. I plan on updating this review in a week or two and letting you all know what results (if any) that I have.
So I've been on this for one week now. I haven't had any noticable negative side effects. Like I stated earlier, after taking it, my appetite is decreased. However, this only lasts during the day and at night I find myself snacking like i use to. After one week, I lost 1.8 pounds, which I was amazed at. As I said earlier, I do work out and have a fairly healthy diet, but the weekends are my downfall. This weekend in particular was really bad. Saturday night was a night of drinking (starting off with a 22oz margarita) and Sunday I had dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse. I was convinced between all the alcohol and the all-you-can-eat steak, I gained at the very least a pound. I was very surprised to find that I lost 1.8 pounds! Not sure if this pill helped with the weight loss or not. I'm going to report back in a week and let you know if I lost any more.
So it's been two weeks and when I hopped on the scale, I was very disappointed to see that I only dropped .2 pounds. Not 2 pounds, 2 tenths of a pound. I guess I can't complain for maintaining my weight, but after the success I had in the first week, I thought that I would have lost more. Especially considering my diet during these past two weeks was much, much better. I did change up my strength training routine, but I doubt that I gained a significant amount of muscle. Maybe this pill is so great after all....
