Works and I tried Combo-Pilling too...
on March 22, 2013
I tried this relacore and it works with no jitters! I never heard of cortisol until I started researching about this products ingredients. It seems my stress makes me create belly fat (common in my family). I did gain most of my weight during stressful periods in my life. This formula says take 3 relacore pills once a day in the morning with water. The pills are green, big and coated. The price has gone down in the past few months. The pills are foil packed in sheets like cold medicine.
I tried the 3 relacores in the AM and it was just too much, I couldn't concentrate and felt a little foggy at 10-12pm. So I tried several attempts at different dosages in the am, afternoon and night. The best dosage was to take two relacore 1-2 hours before bed with a FULL glass of water. The water is very important, not juice or soda...water! If you can't do water before bed then I would instead take the two pills 4pm-7pm (that helps with avoiding a heavy dinner too). Then in the morning I do one pill with water when I first wake up, that is the three for the day. That worked the best for me and it suppressed my appetite all day!! Plus I felt really good. I lost weight quicker when I drank 32oz+ of water a day too. The water makes a BIG difference. At night it is very important to take with the pills with water so they can make it to your stomach (or they sit in your esophagus and promote ulcer issues).
After taking the pills, when I am around food, I am not interested! I eat and get full quickly. I don't exersize but if I did I would probably lose more faster. This product suppresses your appetite for food and I notice I am a lot calmer too. When researching the ingredients, the magnolia bark helps to keep your stress down. Then the magnesium, B and C vitamins help your body deal with stress. They say women on birth control have low B and you have to take the complex for it to work. So maybe I am buying expensive vitamins, but it works! Before I tried this I was hungry all the time, could eat and eat plus LOVED sweets. After 2-3 days of it in my system, I am the opposite, I don't think about food, even while cooking. It is so amazing.
I tried the Relacore with Zantrex3 too. I take 1-2 zantrex3 first thing when I wake up with my one relacore. You have to eat something with Zantrex or you will get nausea and jittery later. No coffee and LOTS of water, just carry a big sports bottle around and drink it ALL! Yes it means lots of bathroom trips but it works well only with water! Hey...it means your system is being cleaned, that is a good thing! If my day is busy, I take another Zantrex3 at around 1-3 pm. This works cause it wears off by bedtime so I get a good nights rest and when I go to bed and get a full 8 hours boy do I feel good in the morning! Do not take zantrex less than 8 hours before bed! The loss of sleep will get to you the next day, talk about crashing! The lunchtime pill dosage I eat with a bigger lunch meal again to avoid the nausea. On the weekends, I don't take any zantrex3 on the weekends when I am relaxing around the house to give my system a break or I just take one when I wake up. When I got to 165, I stop taking the zantrex because I already had energy from not carrying around the bag of dog food around my waist.
The weight loss average was about 2-4 lbs a week for me. I weighed myself first thing when I woke up and marked my weight on a calendar on the wall to see my progress. If I weighed myself at different times in the day it was confusing so I recommend first thing when you get up before you eat breakfast. Put your scale when you can get on it first thing in the am with a calendar/pen for you to look at while you are weighing yourself. I lost about 15 lbs the first month, then 11 the next, then 9 the next, it seems the bigger weight loss is in the beggining with the heavy stuff. I was at 198 and now I am at 163 after three months, I feel so good and my good clothes fit me now!! Again if I worked out, I know I would lose more weight. I have more energy and more energy with each pound I lose. I think in the future, when I reach goal weight of 140 I will taking 1 relacore occasionally and definately 2-3 hours before I go out to eat so I won't be so hungry and stretch my stomach out. Having my appetite suppressed and not eating so much has shrunk my stomach, so I get full fast now.
If you get belly fat from stress then this is for you. I don't think it is for every body type. Me and my family loves cakes/sweets and is prone to diabetes so I think it is for that type. Also if you are on birth control it may interfere with how it works. This relacore is amazing for the right person. I like the combo pilling for energy. The relacore just makes you calmer. It says does not take it if pregnant, I would never do that! What I found is consistancy is important, time taking your pills around the same time each day. You will see results after the pill is running in your system constant, 1-3 days. I don't recommend being on relacore for longer than 5 months! I don't recommend being on Zantrex for longer than 3 months!
