So, I've gained weight. I stopped going to the gym a few months ago when I got back from Hawaii, and either was on holidays or had a cough and never got back to it. I'm going on holidays again in a few days but plan on signing up for the gym when I return.
In the last few weeks, I've heard lots of stories about Raspberry ketones and Green Coffee Bean Extract. The raspberry one I disregarded, but the coffee bean one caught my eye. Stupid me watched a youtube video from a Dr Oz show which showed a couple of overweight ladies who continued to eat crappy and not exercise and yet they still lost weight. While I do plan on returning to exercising on September 2nd, I thought in the meantime I would try out this Green Coffee Bean thing. I am taking two capsules 30 minutes before breakfast and then again at dinner. This means I am taking 800 mg twice a day which is what Dr Oz recommended. Now don't get me wrong, I don't actually believe Dr Oz very often, I think he's overrated and is now starting to advertise for people. But, I'm desperate enough to want the "magic pill" to help me out. I know I won't be exercising for about 2 weeks so if I can do something in the meantime and actually see results it would be wonderful.
Yesterday, I weighed myself. A disgusting 190.4 lbs. I'm only 5'7" so my ideal should be 154 lbs. Today though, I weighed myself and I'm 189.0 lbs. Yeah, it's only 1.4 lbs but hey, that's in ONE DAY! I'm cautiously optimistic that this can kick start me where I feel gungho (spelling?) about exercising upon my return from vacation. Wish me luck. Anyone else out there try this Green Coffee Bean extract yet? What were your thoughts?
