1st day on zinc

Thursday, June 28, 2012


I'm on my first day of zinc. I saw on Dr. Oz last week when he was talking about boosting metabolism. One that he talking about was taking zinc. And I think that he said that it helps with not eating as much food. It's too early to tell yet. I'm taking a 5mg pill and there's 100 pills to the bottle. I'm taking them one a day. I will let everyone know how it works.

I'm really belching this morning. My stomach is empty. Plus I had to take some antiacids this morning for an upset stomach.

Here it is almost 9:30am and it's 86 degrees outside. And we're suppose to be over 100 degrees today with a heat index higher than that. I think 110 degrees is what they're calling for for the heat index. Looks like we may have rain and storms tomorrow. And it's going to be 95 degrees. And we will be in the 90s for a while. This hot weather I'm going to walk the dog in the early morning like I have been.


It's almost noon and it's already 94 degrees. I hate to see what the heat index is right about now. My dog wanted to go around the house but I told her no. It's too hot to do that.


We never left town today. Mainly because of the heat. According to the computer, it's 99 degrees. I haven't been out of the house for a while and I'm not going to until we get supper. And I'm on my 2nd 2L bottle of water.

Well, the zinc is helping some. But I need to give it more time. I'm not as tired as I'm usually a this time so my metabolism must be up. And I'm not as hungry as I'm usually at about now. I'm hungry but I don't want a snack.

I did a workout DVD this afternoon. I may do another one after supper. It will depend on when and where we go. Plus when we get home.


We left town for supper and I did a workout DVD. And I'm still full of energy and still full from supper.

The temperature went as far as 99 degrees. I'm glad that I took the dog for 2 walks this morning. I hope that it doesn't rain in the morning so I can take her f or walks. There is a chance of rain coming.


Well, the temperature is down to 88 degrees. That is sounding so much better than 99 degrees from earlier.

I'm starting to get tired but not to where I need to go to bed just yet. I'm still have my metabolism boost going, but it's starting to wear off.

Besides my metabolism still being high, I'm not hungry long after a meal. I'm usually hungry an hour or two but I'm not now. Sometimes if I exercise after I eat (before the zinc) I'm usually really hungry to have a lot of food. Not now since taking zinc. I'm glad that I listened to that episode of Dr. Oz about metabolism. I think that if you need more of a metabolism boost, try zinc. Target has it in their brand in 50mg pills, 100 pills, for $3.69. I'm not regretting in deciding in taking zinc.

My grandniece Katelynn is 7 weeks old today. It doesn't seem possible that she's that old already. It seems like only yesterday that she was born.

    I've been considering adding zinc as a supplement along with the other vitamins. However, I have to take mine in the evenings because I get massive indigestion if I take them in the AM, regardless of what kind of breakfast I have.

    Thanks so much for the info!
