Raspberry Ketone

Monday, April 29, 2013

I have been back on the wagon with exercising for the past 2 weeks. It's been going good. I am doing at least 1 video a day, mixing it up between Jillian Michaels, Brazil Butt Lift and Just Dance or Zumba for Wii. I'm really feeling the burn every day and I feel like I am getting a great workout.

I have always been good about being active, unless I am sick (the flu had me doing nothing for over a month!) I can't seem to get the results I want and I always feel like the more I workout, the more I can eat junk. On Saturday, I started taking Raspberry Ketone. I know, I never use any kind of weight loss supplements, but Raspberry Ketone is supposed to be natural and I figured a little help wouldn't be horrible.

I took my first dose on Saturday. I had forgotten about it earlier in the day, so I took 2 pills before dinner. Within a half hour, I felt like I ate a horse. We sat down to eat dinner and I already felt full. I ate half a chicken breast, some yams and green beans for dinner, and then I didn't eat anything for the rest of the night. The bad thing was it made me shaky, my heart was racing a little, and I was up until 3am. I'm not used to caffeine!

Sunday I again forgot to take it before lunch, but I woke up still feeling full. I ate a protein bar for breakfast just so I had some food in me, and then had a 6" sub for lunch. I decided to take only 1 pill before dinner so maybe the caffeine wouldn't affect me so much. I had no issues with 1 pill at all. It didn't seem to make me feel as full though, but I was still careful about what I ate. I did end up having a snack after dinner. I made sure it was healthy - an organic apple with organic peanut butter.

With working out, eating right, and the extra boost from the Raspberry Ketone, I am hoping to start seeing the results I want! I am not overweight, really I just want to lose about 15 pounds and tone my body.

    I know people who have used them and lost weight. Honestly, taking these supplements goes against everything I believe in, but I figured I'd try them and see how it goes. I'd rather not use them, but even with exercise and eating right, I can't seem to get the results I want, so I thought I'd give it a try and see if these work for me.

    I just read an article on here on Raspberry Ketone and it said that it was never tested on humans, only lab rats so there is no proof of it actually helping humans. I am not sure where I found it, but it's worth a read.

    Aside from that, sounds like you had a good weekend. :)
