Using Ace diet pills is quite beneficial for me, because in initial use it gives me results like controlled appetite, and started losing pounds.

but after 4 weeks the weight loss is bit slow or i can say i m much curious to see the results.

then i decided to search online for some reviews, so there also mentioned the same thing as i personally experienced.

i took ace for almost 6 months before i quit. i loved the energy. it gave me enough energy that i could quit taking caffiene pills throughout the day to stay awake at work. i lost a little weight at first, but then i plateaued and nothing. after 5 months or so, the energy it used to give me was also plateauing. i think my body built up a tolerance for it and made it ineffective. i've been off it for over a month now and i feel great. i've actually started loosing weight again, too!! although it wasn't very successful for me in weight loss, i believe it gave me the jump-start energy i needed to start exercising more, so i don't view it as a complete loss. my best advice for you is to monitor your nutrition and exercise. healthy choices are, and will always be, the best option. good luck!

ACE has reformulated their product again recently and it has gotten back the energy. If you stopped due to that then please try it again. I am like the energizer bunny. You still have to drink all the water etc.

Its because the US banned DMAA. They think it's harmful because of some military people were abusing it and they had health problems from it. So you probably won't find anything similar on the market. Makes me sad as well. My supplier had a few bottles of the old stuff so I'm using them up now but after that, it's going to be strictly will power to curb my bad cravings. :-(

Personally, I prefer the old ace. Works better for appetite control. Stick with it. It will work!

I'm perfectly aware that ACE changed the formula this month taking out DMAAa. Ive been on the old formula for a few months and I'm fine. I haven't tried the new formula but from what I've heard, its just as good. People are still losing weight. Its not a big secret that the formula has changed. New flyers are provided for customers showing the changes. So no one is being deceived to get money! It's a personal choice to take supplements or not. That was never the point of this discussion. The point is...its not a scam! Look up the word scam so you understand what it is.

scam[ skam ]noun1. a confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, especially for making a quick profit; swindle.
verb (used with object)1. to cheat or defraud with a scam.

ACE did exactly what it promised me and for others therefore it's not a scam! Get the point. If you don't believe in taking supplements then don't. It's just that simple.

By the way... caffeine is a drug too. And anyone doing research will know the the government is trying to ban DMAA. It's not a secret. Vitamins aren't even FDA approved. She we stop Rhodes as well? How about my B12 or Iron supplements? The goernment doesn't regulate them therefore they must be bad. Just leave it a alone and let people make their own decision please!

So true ,started taking ace about a month in half ago,my results were amazing weighed in at work and I have lost 20 lbs so far,I don't sell the product and was skeptical but also when I went in for my follow up on my B/P which has been high at almost every visit it was very normal this last visit and I was very very happy I don't have jitters,heart palpitations or any of that.I guess like mentioned in one of the earlier posts what works for one may not work for another but I am glad for my choice to take ACE and I dont regret it one bit...... emoticon

Stay away from the OLD ACE. They just made a new one a few days ago. The old stuff is bad stuff. If you dont believe me read all of the complaints on google. Type in complaints against ACE. Also you can check out a page on Facebook its called Ace and The Real Side Effects

I am not looking for a quick fix or a magical pill. I am not claiming ACE to be magic or a quick fix. Does it help curb my appetite and cravings...yes but I still have a choice what I put in my mouth and ultimately that is what helps me lose weight just if I was watching what I eat without it. Therefore it is not any quicker than regular dieting. I don't starve myself all day then eat chocolate cake for dinner. I eat 3 meals and a snack each day. I just eat less and watch calories.

As I said before, I see a therapist weekly. My insurance does not pay for a dietician or personal trainers so the money I save on eating less every month I can buy my ACE and make this easier.

The main reason I responded to this post was because people were calling ACE a scam. I was testifying that is not! It works for me and others need to know it can help them too. People are not on here endorsing ACE to increase sales and scam people. These pills are great and people need to know and if they want to try them they can. That's really all I need to say about it. I've been on every diet ever invented in my lifetime including trying to just change my lifestyle and making better choice on my own. Its a huge battle for me and many others so I don't want to be judged for getting help through a supplement. Just like I don't want to be judged for my Lexapro and Wellbrutrin I take for ADD and anxiety. Some people need help along the way and I'm not going to apologize for MY choice.

When I said it works like an antidepressant I meant it does something in the brain because that's where hunger comes from. If ACE curbs my appetite so that is some kind of chemical reaction in the brain. I am not a scientist but I know that much. Also if I need ACE to keep weight off I'm sure I'll save $60 a month from all the less food I'll be eating. So that's fine with me. FYI I am seeing a therapist every week to deal with my emotional issues. With ACE I can learn to eat smaller portions which can become habits. I just don't know this is such a concern for others. I just don't want people thinking that ACE is a scam when it's not.

See, for all the people who want to stand and argue.. this is a gray area.
Some diet pills do INDEED work.. but as the lady in the last post stated.. it doesnt teach you how to eat well and keep it off.

I took metabolife when it was legal with ephedra.. and it worked like a charm... I just think its wrong to use the word scam.

my problem is NOT whether or not i need pills.. its whether or not I will over come my food addiction.

and if one poster feels that the ACE pill helped pull herself out of depression.. than.. good.

I would probably do better to spend my money on counselling or whatever.

I was not implying that people should not take ACE. Although I feel it is not a realistic solution for HEALTHY and LONG TERM weight loss and weight management, people will decide on their own what is safe to ingest.

My weight has been an issue for the better part of my life, and the only real solution for me was nutrition counseling with an RD and exercise sessions with a personal trainer. After these visits, my entire view of nutrition and fitness changed, and I was able to establish healthy habits that are long term. My friends in the office who are taking ACE say they cannot afford a visit with an RD (which is bogus because my health insurance covered it) and they cannot afford a personal trainer (which is also bogus because they are plunking down quite a bit of money for the bottles of ACE.) I honestly believe that most people want a quick fix, they want instant results. The problem with that is, instant results are temporary and they do not allow you to keep the weight off long-term.

The most important part of losing weight was gaining my health back, which I have been able to eliminate all pharmaceuticals (with the exception of birth control, that's sort of important!)

What brought me to this discussion board is that I am writing a research paper (I am an nutrition major/psychology minor) on confronting cognitive dissonance and adapting a healthy lifestyle. I wanted opinions and behavior observations of people who take diet pills and those whose research shows they are a scam. This thread has given me a lot of ideas, but has me concerned that people swear by a diet pill to lose weight. I have friends taking ACE and they love it. I wish they would make more of an effort and get the "i can't" ideas out of their heads.

On the bottle it says to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day, exercise 3 times a week and maintain a healthy diet. I had to laugh, because shouldn't this be a standard for people who want to lose weight? I have a friend who admits she doesn't do any of those things and has lost 15-20 lbs on ACE without exercising. That is fine and dandy if that makes her happy but I know she will gain it back anyway, because she always has in the past.

People say ACE gives them an extra boost in weight loss and controls their appetite so they don't eat as much. Learning portion size is much easier and better for you, but it's all mental. You have to take the time to do it. I hear people on ACE saying they skip meals because they just aren't hungry. Skipping meals will cause your body to store fat, which does not help your cause. Read up on the metabolic processes of the human body, and you may just understand how food, good nutritious food, can help you lose weight. I know people are happy with what works for them, but really...do you really know what it does to your body and do you care? We're all busy, but for our health, we have to make the time to take care of ourselves. It's tempting to pop a magical pill, but in the long run, will it all be worth it?

I'm glad you have found what is working for you. However:

" It actually is very much like an antidepressant. They increase the chemicals in the brain that make you feel good. I'm sorry you don't agree with me and that's fine but you can not speak as fact, just opinion. "

Yes, I can speak as fact. I usually do. I'd love to see your references for the above statements.

It sounds like you'll need to be on ACE for the rest of your life, if you can't cope without it. Sounds like an awfully expensive lifestyle to me.

Not everyone has that kind of self control, if I did, I wouldn't need to lose weight in the first place. If they stop making them, I will be at the same spot I was before the pills so what the difference? If you don't agree with taking ACE then don't take it. If you need it, take it. It's really not for anyone else to tell you what to do. If it helps me, I will tell others and if they want to try it that's great and if not, that's great too. But no one can tell me it doesn't work for me because it absolutely does!

Calories in, calories out. Listen to the advice of an RD. Why would anyone pay money for something like ACE? You want to buy it the rest of your life? What if they stop making it? Will you then know how to control your appetite and keep weight off?

There are people in my office who take ACE and half of them do not know what the ingredients are, or what they do to their bodies!! That is insane to me.

I my humble opinion, you are wrong. Yes obviously eating less is the reason I have lost weight. The point is...with the ACE pills I am able to eat less. It's because they curb my appetite and cravings, that I am able to achieve that. It is not in my head! I do not know what it is in those pills but no one is going to tell me they don't signal something in my brain to help me eat less. Your brain controls appetite and pleasure functions. I don't have to eat for pleasure when I'm taking ACE. It actually is very much like an antidepressant. They increase the chemicals in the brain that make you feel good. I'm sorry you don't agree with me and that's fine but you can not speak as fact, just opinion. What they have done FOR ME is fact. If I could have done it without them, believe me, I would have saved the $60! My post was not to offen you, it is to share my experience. If they helped me and maybe others want the help as well. I will continue to take ACE to reach my goal and the to maintain it. Without it, I over eat and make really bad choices. ACE is a great TOOL to help me.

I didn't say anything about mind over matter, simply that pills don't help with weight loss. Even the prescription ones add 3-5 pounds over a YEAR-- not big results. I also was not talking about mental illness. Period. You simply can't compare a weight loss pill with anti-depressants and anxiety medications. I'm actually completely offended that you thought I was actually intimating that at all! As a depression sufferer myself, I know better than most how you can't just stop being depressed.

Losing 10 lbs in 3 weeks sounds impressive until you realize that many people can achieve that same result through extensive calorie cutting and fluid loss. There is nothing in those pills that could have triggered weight loss. If anything, you're downplaying your own efforts because you did that in spite of the drug... not because!

I understand about the mind over matter thing. But if this was the case, people would overcome depression, anxiety, and other psychological disorders without pills. The truth is...this pill works for me. I've lost 10lbs in 3 weeks! ACE helps me tremendously with my appetite and cravingings!

There is no over the counter supplement that has been proven to have any substantial effect on weight loss, period. Dr Oz is not a reputable source for weight loss advice. His advice often contradicts solid science, and he's been well known to promote things that have no basis in reality, based on very limited or nonexistent evidence.

If you need pills to function, you need to examine your needs very carefully. You shouldn't need to pop a pill to tap the power of your mind.

And my ultimate question would be this: If pills have worked for you in the past, why are you here now?

The pills contain caffeine, among other things. You can get energy from coffee, orange juice, a properly balanced meal, getting enough sleep, and more. You don't need high-priced supplements for that.

Well.. i am totally UNBIASED.. i do not sell.. nor do i take ACE.

BUT.... today.. i was on facebook and a friend of mine ( a real person who does not sell ACE).. she is on her first day. She was so pleased that on DAY 1 she got all her housework done in one hour.. compared to a usual 3.. :)).. So, Energy with this pill is a reality. I am going to watch her on this.
I personally have taken many supplements recommended by DR Oz..and sorry.. the heartburn i got from them deterred me from long term use. Raspberry Ketones.. and the Coffee Extract..

But i am a firm believer in the power of the mind. ... IF you believe you will be successful .. then you will be.. pills or no pills. I am sure the hike in energy helps tremendously in that belief.
I took Ephedra for a long time when i was younger.. and i did not die.. nor did i have any issues.... LOL.. i miss that stuff.. (but i was a speed freak in high school)..
The only issue i have... is I am not willing to pay 60 dollars a bottle.. :))... im too cheap.

I am thinking of trying hypnotism.. anyone else try this?

I have tried every diet and taken every diet pill on the market. Nothing worked for me. After having my 3rd child I was over 200 pounds. I used to be a size 6. In July 2012 I was a size 18. I lost 20 pounds on my own, but then after was getting nowhere. I signed up and starting selling Advocare..didn't work and was too expensive. In March of 2013 I tried ACE and loved it!! I signed up to sell soon after. I don't do if for the money, because there are some weeks I make nothing. I only eat healthy, drink water and I do boot camps three days a week. I have lost 45 pounds on ACE so I have lost a total of 65 pounds. I am down from a size 18 to a 10. I love the energy I get from it!! Not every diet pill or diet plan works for everyone. This works for me and people are seeing my results from it. I will never understand why people are always hating on anyone that sells anything? If you don't like then you don't like it. Also Saba has many other great products. I don't push my products on anyone. If they ask what I am doing I tell them I eat healthy, drink lots of water, work out and take ACE. If they want to try it fine, if not that's fine too!! You do have to be careful don't buy ACE off ebay I have heard horrible stories from people that have bought it off there and ended up in the ER the next day because it's not the real thing.

I came across this website while researching ACE because I recently started taking them. I was introduced to them by a friend who has been taking ACE for the last 4 months and it has helped her lose 30-40lbs. She is a RN. I see there is a lot of controversy on this topic. I personally have started ACE and so far it is working great! Speaking for me, it helps me so much with my cravings and uncontrollable eating. I am 38 years old and I have struggled with weight issues since a small child. I know the pain it has caused me my whole life. ACE is not a scam! I would never scam anyone much less exploit people struggling with weight issues. When you find something that works, you want share it so others can have success, not to make money! My friend wouldn't scam me. With ACE I am able to make better choices and that is very motivating. There is nothing wrong with sharing the information. Its up to each individual to make the decision to try it.

As a side note: I heard that you should never buy ACE from anyone other than an authorized distributor because there is fake stuff out there being sold on Amazon. The real ACE is a clear capsule with a greyish substance inside. This may be the scam people are referring to.

JENNALYNN044, I have no problem with you, personally. What I do have a problem with is your involvement with the community seems to be limited to promoting a product that you sell.

That is a conflict of interest. Period. Therefore, what you say is automatically colored and suspect, because you have something to gain. Even if it's not direct sales (you've been careful not to directly invite people to contact you) it's the boosting of the reputation of your product that you can benefit from.

The evidence is against you. No one is being close minded or judgmental, just honest, and based on the experience we have on these boards,

If you genuinely feel that Sparkpeople has nothing to offer simply because no one here supports a diet pill (which is directly against Sparkpeople philosophy anyway) that's your choice.

You made the choice to enter these arguments, and you've beaten us over the head with your registered nurse status. But honestly, that means nothing, because anyone can claim anything on a message board. Not to mention, plenty of people with actual medical degrees make fallacious, dangerous claims about the weight-loss-miracle of the week all the time. (Dr. Oz was a surgeon once upon a time, and now will sell anything anyone pays him too.) You being a nurse means absolutely nothing. Especially since on a strictly anecdotal level, I've known plenty of registered nurses who scare me with their general ignorance on discussions of weight loss. I had one the other day (a mom on my kid's soccer team) try to sell me on *essential oils* for weight loss purposes! Come on now.

What matters to me is that you've consistently argued against solid scientific evidence.

I'll use a quote from one of SP's own articles here:

"In addition, personal experience is not the same thing as a well-designed research study; as you probably learned in high school science class, correlation does not prove causation."

I'm glad it works for you. But this is not an ACE support site. Don't expect us to support something that has been stated by the staff here to be a scam. And don't expect us to be intimidated by threats of not telling people about Sparkpeople. That's silly and classic internet arguing failure.

Agree with your comment Anarie about natural ingredients not always being safe, add the fact that (according to WebMD - I can't vouch for the validity of the information there but have used that site quite often for research), "Some products claim that dimethylamylamine naturally comes from rose geranium oil. Supplements that contain this ingredient sometimes list rose geranium, geranium oil, or geranium stems on the label. However, laboratory analysis shows that this drug probably does not come from this natural source. It is thought that these manufacturers have artificially added this drug to the supplement rather than obtaining it from a natural source." The fact that Canada considers it a drug and does not permit its use in supplements and the FDA has banned it is enough for me to think twice about whether to use these products.

On the Saba website, the company that manufactures ACE, while they list dimethylpentlyamine as part of their "proprietary blend" on the product label, separately they list "Natural Source Ingredients" and this ingredient is not one of those listed (in other words is didn't make the cut as natural. Also because it's buried in the "proprietary blend" which is 780mg in total, users have no way of knowing how much dimethylpentylamine they are taking. I looked this product up on four distribution websites and only one even listed this ingredient, while others excluded it. Perhaps the manafacturer removed it as the FDA has directed and just hasn't updated their website.

I'm not judging people who sell it. I've tried other weight loss supplements, appetite suppressants etc... in the past. And I don't have a problem that it's sold through distributorships. I did that gig once myself, selling products that I believed in, but I'm not cut out for sales. My research tells me ACE is not for me. Maybe it works for others, but the risks for me are too high. My advice, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. If something seems to be working for a great deal of people (there are lots of positive testimonials to be found for ACE, don't try it without at least doing some research, seeking out personal testimonials from people you know and trust and discussing with a medical professional.

NATURAL A.C.E. Diet Supplement PILLS. Pills are not natural.

My hope for anyone reading this thread is to #1 ) look at how many posts the person has on SP. Most of the A.C.E supporters will have less than 10 posts, and almost none over 50. # 2 ) Despite claims to being a member of SP for years, and years, go to their Sparkpages, and check their date for when they joined SP. They will almost unanimously be after this thread started.

You have a dietitian on one hand, who is saying this is a scam. On the other you have a group of new SP " members ", who are either suggesting you use a pill, or very interested in it. It is amusing to go down and read all the testimonials, and people who are being " convinced ". They are too lazy to even go to the game room, and build up a few hundred posts to provide cover for their scam. Just ignore all the posts that are by someone with 100 or less, unless they are asking for advice. Think back to when you joined SP. Did you thunder into the site, explaining how you knew the best way to lose weight? OR, did you show up, and ask for help?

Luckily for us, these people have discovered the secret to success in the first month on SP!! They only bother to post in this thread, and weren't a member when this thread started, but have joined to give their testimonials. The people giving the testimonials, as well as the people who after 2 posts have decided to " give A.C.E. a try ", are just full of $***.

I think if you remove these trolls, you will be left with about 20 posts by real members, and most against A.C.E., or basically any weight loss drug. If you want the secret to success, why not ask those people, like DRAGONCHILDE, who besides spending a lot of time debunking these claims for A.C.E, has REAL results. Or you can listen to our dietitian, since you decided to join this site.While we can debate types of diet, and exercise, weight loss is simple. Eat less than you burn, and you will lose. No need for pills. Using a pill to lose weight, and then just eating healthy when you hit GW ? Doesn't work. That is B.S.

Your choice is to listen to a professional dietitian, as well as members you know, who have proven success.. all of who think this is a sales scam, OR trust people with 2 posts. This may be the single worst thread that has ever appeared on SP.

I need to reply to this post and warn you about ACE. I took this drug for almost a year. Yes a full year. What happened in that year? First off let me say I have lost 50 pounds and I can NOT accredit most of that to ACE. I exercise and eat pretty well. The ACE did help me not eat a lot but in all honesty I think my exercising helped more. What else happened? I had several ER visits which I couldn't figure out why. My BP would not regulate even on meds. I had severe headaches, sleeplessness, chest pains, palpitations etc. My doctors.. yes DOCTORS said ACE is seriously dangerous. the natural substances you are defending can kill you and cause detriment to your body. Sure it can be a Quick fix for not eating a lot but long term dangers of this drug are serious. Please be advised that I can confirm personally this is not good and the 5 drs I saw in the year. This diet pill isn't even on a walmart shelf... think about that for a minute. Also the AM 300 they push with it can give you serious heart problems in combination. Please do not fall for some gimmick. But hey.. you took it for what 3 weeks a month? I mean don't listen to me... Happy ER visits.

It is produced in an FDA approved facility and there are people that work for the FDA that take it. Just because the FDA approves something doesn't make it safe either. Prescription drugs kill far more people each year that natural supplements do. Just coming from a nurse's standpoint. I have read far too many things about the dangers of prescription medications such as meds for high cholesterol. (Which is being proven not to be a factor in heart disease btw) But I agree with you AprilYork, in the sense that no one product is for 100% of people. Nothing works for everyone. You just have to find what works best for you, whether it's with or without something added.

I see that it says to drink plenty of water while taking this product. It has been my experience that if I drink the amount of water I am suppose to a day I eat less. I am full from drinking my water. So I had much rather get a shot of B12 for energy and drink my water to curb my appetite than to pay $50 or whatever the cost for diet pills that are in essence doing the same thing. My worry is that these diet pills are not regulated by the FDA so they have not been studied. I have researched these pills and the only thing that I can find about them is what someone who has a financial interest has to say about them. I would like to be able to find something that says this amount of subject experienced these side effects. With not being able to locate anything like this myself I will not personally take a product. With that being said if you believe it is helping you it probably is, but for someone like me it probably wouldn't.

I would always consider natural supplements to be okay but like what others here advised, you need to be very careful also and just choose which supplement works for you. If it has side effects, stop taking it. I have once tried ACE and so far no side effects for me. But I switched to just taking Bella Vi Insane ampíd instead, just a preference.

I agree not judge, just because it might not be right for you do not degrade someone for taking it or selling it! I have taken A.C.E. and have been very successful on it! and as far as someone making money on it, doesnt someone make money on everything we take, over-the-counter, prescribed, or otherwise!! Just because you don't buy it from GNC or Walmart does that make it bad because someone is making money off of it! Someone makes money off of the groceries we buy, should we just quit buying them because someone is making money on it??? Before I started taking it I consulted my physician, although he suggested I just try more exercise and healthy lifestyle, he also did not condone it! He said there was absolutely nothing in it that would harm me, it was perfectly safe to take as directed!! It is certainly easier to lose weight with it then without it!! Haters will always hate!! Dont let that them get you down!!

@Anarie...Although, you are very educated in your research on herbs and diet pills, obesity is becoming the number 1 killer. I think everyone has their own way of trying to lose weight and what might work for you, doesn't work for someone else. ACE is one of the better products I have seen to actually help with healthy eating while producing a better lifestyle. Tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, prescription medicines, bug spray, pollution, pesticides, the sun, etc. can all be harmful, but obesity is becoming an epidemic and I don't think you should be the judge of someone who needs "something" extra to help boost the motivation of losing weight. I don't sell the product, but I am familiar with it and it is not meant for long term use, but as a "stepping stone" to jump start weight loss.

Please don't personally attack me or judge my motives. I have been a part of this site for several years and love reading the articles they write and tracking my measurements and weight. I have only been taking ACE since March and it's the most successful I have been with any weight-loss effort before. I just love sharing it with people and have watched tons of people have success from it as well. You can ask anyone who knows me, I don't do it for the money. I also happen to be a Registered Nurse that is very interested in alternative medicine and have done extensive research on each of the ingredients in ACE. I have not judged you for anything you have said. You have the right to be against it if you want to be. But please do not say undeserved things about me when you don't even know me. I'm only trying to share facts about it so people can make their own judgement. If they want to look into it more and do their own research, that is perfectly fine. The company that produces ACE produces it in an FDA supervised facility and has tons of research and safety measures behind their products.

"dimethylpentylamine HCI is actually a compound from the geranium flower. "

Yes. It is. MOST drugs are compounds from plants. Morphine and heroin are compounds from the poppy flower. Crack cocaine is a compound from the coca leaf. Cyanide is a compound from apricot pits and leaves. Ricin is a compound from the castor bean. Coming from a plant doesn't make it safe. It's still a drug, and it's still not legal to sell as a weight loss supplement. And it's still not going to make anyone lose any weight.

Stubby, remember that the lady who's telling you this is safe SELLS IT. The only activity she has ever had on this website is telling people to take this supplement because SHE is making money from it. Please call your doctor and read him/her the ingredient list before you take it, because it really could hurt you.

dimethylpentylamine HCI is actually a compound from the geranium flower. It is actually one of the ingredients that helps control appetite. And people have died from it because they have used products with large amount of it in it and have mis-used/overdosed on the product. ACE has a very little amount of this ingredient. You can die from taking in too much water or anything else that is harmless if not used as suggested. Saba has been around for decades, has lots of research behind their products, and is taken and sold by many many nurses and doctors. (I'm a nurse myself). Not to mention, prescription medications kill thousands of people every year and are pretty much all chemicals, but you don't see people bashing a blood pressure pill or thyroid medication--there are better, more natural ways of solving those issues too.

I have seen WAY too many people gain health and reach their goals on ACE to believe it does nothing. I felt so much better since I have taken it, from day 1. Things made of natural ingredients can be effective, and are much safer than taking medications (approved by the FDA btw), or drinking soda or energy drinks to get energy. I know someone that has an FDA chemist and someone else that works for the FDA as customers that take ACE. The FDA chemist tested all the ingredients first before they would try it to make sure there wasn't anything else in it that wasn't listed on the ingredient list, or anything that was unsafe to take. ACE is the real deal, and people bash it because they want to find any excuse for it not to work. ACE is simply a natural supplement that helps you change your habits so you can live a healthier lifestyle, even once you have quit ACE. I went on vacation a couple weeks ago and forgot to take my ACE with me, and I still made better eating decisions and ate less because of the habits I have formed while taking ACE.

No one product is for 100% of people, but please don't bash it for the people who it does work for. I am naturally very weary and hesitant about any supplement because of being a nurse, I did LOTS of research before I would even try it, and everything has checked out for me. Saba is an amazing company that is helping thousands of people.

Stubby, please show your doctor the ingredient list for this pill. I'm pretty sure she will tell you not to take it, and apologize for saying it was okay. It has many ingredients in it that could hurt you, and in fact if they haven't changed the formula, it is illegal for them to sell it for weight loss because of the dimethylpentylamine HCI. This is NOT a natural ingredient; it's a drug that is normally used in cold medicine.

Some people think that supplements must be safe and good because the packages look like real medicine (or food) and they say "natural." But we have weird laws in America. Our laws to make medicine safe don't apply to supplements. If you buy food, it has to contain exactly what the label says it has, and nothing else. If you buy medicine, it has to have exactly the ingredients the label says, and exactly that dose. But supplements don't have to obey ANY of those laws. Many times, they have ingredients that aren't listed on the label (including things that can cause allergic reactions), and most of the time they don't have all the ingredients that are listed on the label. Also, the companies don't have to measure how much of each ingredient they put in. That's especially dangerous when it has things like caffeine or dimethylpentylamine. One pill in the bottle might only have 50 mg of caffeine and another might have 500.

The dimethylpentylamine (also called Methylhexanamine) makes this product unsafe. At least 5 people have died taking supplements with this ingredient. It's banned by the sports anti-doping boards, too; a Toronto Blue Jays rookie was suspended for it last year (and it probably ended his career), and several athletes at the last Olympics were sent home because of it. The FDA won't make the ingredient illegal because it does have medical uses, but it's not legal to sell it for weight loss.

Here's a link to the FDA information about this ingredient.
www.fda.gov/Food/DietarySupplements/QADiet
arySupplements/ucm346576.htm


There's nothing in ACE that will make you lose weight. Some people think caffeine helps a little, but you can get that much more safely and for a lot less money by drinking tea or coffee. (Most of the natural ingredients in ACE actually come from green tea, but tea has other nutrients that are good for you, and it doesn't have cold medicine!)

Also, what is your doctor doing to help your thyroid situation? If you're not on medication for that, that's the place to start. If you ARE on medication for that and it's not working, then ask for a referral to a thyroid expert. There are real medications that can help thyroid problems. Taking caffeine and cold medicine isn't going to fix a thyroid problem; if anything, it'll just make it worse.

I don't mean to be cruel, but taking this pill is going to make it slightly LESS likely that you'll live to see your grandbabies. Because of your weight, you're already at increased risk for heart attack, and the combination of caffeine and dimethylpentylamine HCI has caused heart attacks in athletes who were in perfect health.

And if none of this changes your mind, here's one last thing:
You gave up pop and chocolate. That was hard, right? The caffeine in those foods makes it really hard to stop using them, but YOU DID IT. So why start taking caffeine in a pill? You'll un-do all that hard work you did to quit pop.

I am new here. Hi how is everyone? A little about my self. I have had 2 C-section, hysterectomy, 2 knee surgery's. all within the last 10yrs.I have went from 230-310 of the last 5 yrs. cause of all the surgery's. I have had no pop for a month and have limited my amount of chocolate. I am going to start ACE tomorrow, because I have no thyroids my metabolize is like dead and I can't lose weight. I have tried weight loss programs from weight watches, counting calories and working out. I have also checked with my doctor and she told me to try it. I understand the info about it but if it helps me to start losing weight and being healthy so I can live to see my grand baby's then I want this. and oh ya I am only 36. So yes I will try it and will keep you posted.

Suthingal, the days off each week is so that you can replenish your body and make sure your body doesn't adjust to your routine and have the ACE become less effective. Just like a diet or exercise routine, if you keep it the same for too long, your body adapts to it and calls it the new normal, making it not work as well!

I have actually found my heartburn and indigestion has gotten WAY better since starting ACE! I used to have it almost every day and now I only have it occasionally. It has really helped a lot. Maybe it's because it helps me eat less? Everyone is different with their experiences. :)

Also water-you need to drink a lot of water. The supplements will sometimes make you extremely thirsty. Half your body weight is recommended but I have never met that goal. I do drink a lot and still get very thirsty. But we really need this anyway.

My honest experience with the Ace Weightless Pill
I love it! I canít speak for everyone but I can attest to the results I have had, my pros and my cons. Long but thorough...
Me- I am 40 y/o, have had 6 children, and lost all my weight after each one. Weight and energy has never been an issue for me except for the last 8 years. My struggle now is low energy, low blood sugar, weight gain, back and joint aches, and my mind is often in a fog. Iím up 40 pounds too. For 3 years I have worked to gain my health back. I have struggled to lose weight with dieting because the foods that help keep my sugar balanced (complex carbs, high protein and lean meats, dairy) are often the ones that seem to pack the weight on. Weight Watchers and other similar programs would result in a blood sugar crash because those are the high point/calorie foods that my body needed. My friends have all lost well with WW but not me. I gained! :( The more I exercise, the hungrier I am and the more crashes I have when I donít eat. I have been so frustrated by these struggles! It seems no matter what I have done I have failed. So for those of you who want to tell people to use diet and exercise onlyÖfor me it did not work.

I take 2 pills daily. One once my feet hit the floor in the AM and another around lunch. Each week I take a 1 or 2 day break, as suggested by my sales lady. Not sure why, but I do it. I eat healthier meals, I donít skip meals even if it means having a piece of fruit or such as replacement. I walk 4 or 5 times weekly. I should exercise more, but Iím working on that!
My personal Proís and Conís List
Pros:
Appetite-The herbal supplements are meant to control and level blood sugar levels. I believe thatís how the huger is controlled. Iíve heard that a few people have had sugar lows with Ace but I have not had any crashes at all! I am so thrilled! In fact I am rarely hungry and I have to force myself to eat regular portions, at least. By regular I mean the suggested amounts on labels (which have always seemed a joke to me before). I am hoping this will teach my body to fill up on a reasonable portion instead of a plate full.
Energy- The energy is amazing. I was pretty sluggish throughout the day, wearing out easily and had lost certain pep to my step. In the afternoon I would HAVE to have a nap. Now I can still relax for a few in the afternoon but it is not a must. I love the all day energy! I am not jittery or nervous. I do not have energy crashes. I feel alert and sharp minded. I feel on the ball!
I looked up each ingredient and the list promises some amazing things. The Appetite and energy are the things that concern me most. I have lost on average 3-5 lbs per week and have been on Ace for almost 1 month. Although it has worked for me there is, as with most everything, the cons that Iíve noticedÖ
1. If you donít change your eating habits you donít lose- During a week at kidís camp as a counselor I walked more than normal, I ate worse than my new normal and although I didnít lose any weight I did not gain either. Once I went back to portioning and eating healthy I was losing again. But I also did not have sugar lows! Yay me!
2. Too much energy too late- Pay attention to your body. I took a second pill at 3:30 and was awake in bed until 1 am! Iíve talked to folks who donít experience this. Weíre all different.
3. Indigestion- Eeks...at the most inconvenient times. I keep tums on hand. I guess it canít be perfect!
4. I have to remember to eat. Not an issue before Ace since I would become ill if I skipped meals. My opinion is that I donít want to have poor eating habits when I stop Ace so Iím forcing them on myself now. Maybe my body will catch on!

So far these are the only cons I have found. I will tell you this muchÖOnce I have reached my goal weight I may decide to take and Ace daily just to help control my sugar levels. I am so thankful something is helping me so much! My suggestion for anyone interested is to look up each ingredient to see what it can do and if you can take it. Find a rep and ask them to either send you a dayís sample free or just buy a 5 day supply. See if it works for you. Weíre all so different. But I do agree that we need to create good habitÖnot good crutches. I am pleased. And so far 10lbs lighter. Yay me!

i've been taking ACE for roughly 15 days now, i've lost about 6 pounds and I really do love it. The added energy helps. Its like before I used to force myself to stay active during the day like arm circles while waiting around or a couple sit ups when getting off the bed. Now i'm just more active, I feel like i don't want to stay sitting i actually want to go out for a walk work on the yard or dare i say clean my kitchen lol. Along with ace i've been fairly good about cutting carbs and big meals it's good for anything else as a energy boost to get fit

I just wanted to say I too have WPW. I'm always very Leary of things like ACE. But I did try it and I love it. It does NOT cause my heart to race. There is some green tea and caffeine in it, so if I drink more than 1 cup of coffee I notice some palpitations. But if I only drink water or 1 coke at lunch then my heart dysrythmias don't seem effected. I've had 3 ablations. But still experience an occasional attack. Although not any more so now that I take ACE. :)

With all due respect, I have a difficult time being willing to trust testimonials from people who stand to financially gain from something. If you're selling something, then you have no reason to disbelieve it doesn't work, or that it isn't safe. Quite the contrary, you have a literal vested interest in its success. This is doubly a concern for me when the person in question does not state up front who they are and what their conflict of interest may be when providing testimonials.

If someone can show me reliable, properly constructed and peer-reviewed scientific evidence that something works, I'm happy to keep an open mind. Otherwise, I am NOT a guinea pig. I don't trust multi-level marketing companies, because they make most of their money off of their own reps, not their products.

The problem with supplements like these is they don't have to tell you the truth about what's in them. They are unregulated by the FDA, and as such don't have to include how much of anything is where. They don't have to prove they're safe, that they work, or that they do anything they claim.

Case in point: Homeopathic drops of any kind. They're little more than bottles of water! And yet, people pay top dollar for that water.

I have seen no compelling evidence of any kind that these or any other over the counter supplement is capable of doing what it claims to do.

I have not had any side effects from it so far. I take it and sell it. The only reason I started selling it is because I love it so much, not just to make money. And it's NOT a miracle product. It is something to be supplemented with healthy diet and exercise. It just makes it easier to eat better and gives extra energy to exercise more. I don't ever recommend someone to just take something and sit on the couch all day and expect it to do anything for them. I'm also a nurse, have researched the ingredients, and they are all safe and healthy for you. I recommend ACE for anyone. I have never ever though any dietary supplements were worth anything until ACE, but there will always be people out there who will never give anything a try no matter what.

I agree. "All natural" is not a good thing; it's not a bad thing,it's just a meaningless marketing term. "Natural" isn't synonymous with safe. Snake venom's about as natural as it gets, but you won't catch me drinking the stuff. ;) Many "natural", otherwise safe supplements have side effects, too; for example, St Johns Wort is natural, accepted as safe, with proven benefits. But take it with your blood pressure medication, and it can counteract it and leave you with dangerously high blood pressure. Marijuana is all natural, too, but it's quite illegal in the states.

"All natural" is just a marketing term. and it's not a sign of something safer.

I hate to be Debbie Downer, but ACE is just a way for someone to make money. Someone has researched things that they could pose as "natural" to make it sound good and mixed them up into a diet pill. ANYTHING that says on a label made from "natural ingredients" is pretty much a marketing lie.

Example: "Natural" would mean rather than green tea extract added into pill form.. make some green tea from green tea leaves! THAT would give you way more of the benefits than from any pill.

Because tea of any kind is good for you.. just don't load it with sugar. Make some green tea from green tea leaves and add a little lemon and/or honey.. drink that every day.. drink it with every meal if you want to.. and your body will be full of rich antioxidants. Antioxidants that help fight disease, high blood pressure, and increase your metabolism to result in aiding healthy weight loss.

However, you cannot rely on ONE miracle solution for weight loss. It takes a healthy diet full of REAL food and exercise.

There are side effects to pretty much everything on earth. Those are all natural substances, just like you could list the side effects of calcium pills or multivitamins. Side effects are listed on medications mostly to protect the company that makes it from being sued. They find every possible thing that could happen (Even if it's only a 0.01% chance) and list it on there. If you aren't finding anything about it when you search for it, it isn't common enough to find. Very rare.

If you google each ingredient separately, you will find a lot of the ones that are hard to pronounce are minerals. The dimethylpentylamine is actually a form of geranium stem. When it comes to taking these ingredients, if you took them all separately in their completely raw/natural form, your body wouldn't be able to handle it. They are a synergistic blend to be formed into a capsule that your body can process it. I'm a nurse, and I researched each ingredient before I was even will to try ACE. All the ingredients are from natural sources and then blended into the right amounts and form for your body to be able to utilize them. I personally love the product. I have lost 9 pounds since starting it about 5-6 weeks ago and some inches! Not ALL dietary supplements are bad. I will give you this, most of them are bad or don't really do much, but this one to me is different. I have seen WAY too many people I know get amazing results. And what's great about ACE is that there isn't anything that is going to hang on to you if you decide to quit it. No withdrawal or anything. I know people that are healthy and in shape that take it just on days they need extra energy because it is a much healthier way to get energy than soda or energy drinks. No yucky chemicals. :) Anyway, hope that helps a little bit with the ingredients.

This is the ingredients of ace...I thought I would share this...

Vitamin B6
Caffeine- Natural source
Chromium -as polynicotinate
Cocoa powder (bean)
Spirulina, green tea extract,
(95% Polyphenos, 40% EGCG), 1,3 dimethylpentylamine HCI
Trace mineral complex and
phenylethlamine HCI
Vanadium (chelate)

Other ingredients: Gelatin Capsul, Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Stearic Acid..

Now, natural things what I have learned I was able to understand as this.. if you can understand and and read the ingredients.. and its less than 5.. its good..
Also natural ingredients must be in its natural form.. (Not taken or changed into a pill)
If you can't read and don't understand these ingredients, your body won't be able to understand it either nor will it be able to process it correctly to digest things..

Now, maybe I need an education on things and if someone would like to teach me, I am more than willing to listen and learn if someone wants to explain these ingredients, but I can not understand nor even try to pronounce half of these ingredients listed in ace.


Right now, I am only able to recognize maybe 3 ingredients of its natural form...

wow... I fully believe ANY pills/ shakes/ weight loss programs are scams
It is to do one thing... make money for the makers and the promoters..

I have known 2 people now that have taken ace, and yes, they have lost weight, they had to stopped.. One has lost over 50lbs the other 35..BUT

They both gained double their weight back.. I have lost over 50lbs and slowly still losing but at a healthy slower weight..with NO pills or shakes. when I first started I was heavily into protein powder shakes, BCAA and other sports pills...when I stopped those, I gained everything back plus some.

The only TRUE weight loss is working out and nutrition (real food) period.
yes, there are great herbs and supplements, personally, I will take natural herbs/ seeds that I can grow and take on my own..currently I have found chia seeds.. I found out how to grow them on my own and I am learning how to use the sprouts for when it grows into a plant... it has given me free energy, fills me up and has curved my appetite, it has plenty of fiber, protein and omega in it and many more things.. its natural and its a seed....my daughter has claimed it has helped her menstrual cramps even LOL.
My daily intake on calories start at 1565 and go up to 2250 depending on my work outs for that day.. I eattttttt a lot but its whole natural food, no processed/gmo.

If I have to put out $$$$$ for things and its way more than the normal budget can handle and if people promise quick fixes or if somethings on a time line you will loose this much or have this in that period of time, you can bet I will become very weary and turn away from it.. but that is my choice.. for those that take it and it works.. great as well..

Plus... all of those products are still processed foods... people are soo heavy on getting away from processed food that they always forget any pills/ shakes are nothing but processed chemicals and that still includes ace.. yes, ace may not have the "chemicals" that they say it does but never the less, it still was processed hence, having chemicals to produce that into a pill.. why not take things in natural form? Why put that in your body, it won't recognize but only jolt your body into shock .. sure it will behave, but one food for thought....

When you eat healthy with REAL food or herbs/ seeds that you can do for free on your own, its healthy, your body will respond to its natural state, when you add all those chemicals and processed foods, all it does is slow things down and ruin on how your organs react.
What will you do when you find out by taking these processed pills you find out your organs are destroyed or diseased? I really wonder if this is thought of...

People will do what they wish to no matter the discussions or advice and I respect all the answers that have been given...

I have found this post and the responses very interesting, its amazing on the spectrum of where everyone stands.. most need to take in a few facts and must tread very carefully especially if someone has current health issues.. its very dangerous for cardiac (heart issues) patients, diabetic patients and if someone has liver disease or kidney diseases..... but this is my two cents on how I process and see it as.

I wish everyone well no matter what .. processed pills/ shakes or not...

I've taken the A.C.E. product for energy and weight loss. It worked in the beginning but like many other products it quit helping with the weight loss. I'm now taking CHANGE. It contains caffeine, green coffee bean extract, garcinia cambogia, rasberry keytones and dark cocoa seed powder. Not only does it give me energy (I work a full time job and go to school full time) but I lost 13 pounds in 10 days and am still losing. I also have the energy to work out and have begun changing my eating habits.

I also take it for energy. I haven't been very dedicated to the weight loss but I am now going to try to take A.C.E twice daily and watch my caloric intake. I am going to ask my Dr. about phentermine, I hear it give you more energy.

"Having said that-. I My daughter has used in since Christmas and has lost 30 pounds."

And... I have NOT used this (or any) supplement, and have also lost 30 pounds since Christmas.

The problem with saying "I took this supplement and lost X pounds" is, there's absolutely no way to correlate the loss to the taking of the supplement.

I mean, I could look at any new habit I've picked up since Christmas and make it sound like a legitimate claim for the habit's role in my weight loss. For example:

- I started eating kale once per week since Christmas, and lost 30 pounds!
- I thought I'd try agave syrup in my tea. I bought my first bottle in January - and since then I've lost 30 pounds!
- I changed my toothpaste brand 3 months ago, and today I'm 30 pounds lighter!

Yes, I've done all of the above, and yes, I've lost 30 pounds. But I wouldn't go so far to say that kale, agave syrup and Colgate have played any role in the weight loss! It's a similar stretch of logic to suggest that caffeine supplements would, either.

Everyone here on SP should know that your body fluctuates several pounds over the course of a day so you do need to factor that in when someone says they lost 4 pounds in 3 days.
Having said that-. I My daughter has used in since Christmas and has lost 30 pounds.
I have used it and it did help with energy and also in curbing my appetite for the first week or so. I just talked to my daughter and she said she takes 2 in the morning. I was trying to add another one in the afternoon but wouldn't always remember to. so I am going to try first thing in the morning with my protein green smoothie drink and then 2.5 hours later when I eat breakfast.

What I liked most about this product is that it did curb my appetite but did not make me nauseated or jittery.

I do want to add that I have HBP and I am on only waterpills. I was also on lisinopril but have lost enough weight I was able to get off of that. YEA. I have not noticed any difference my heart rate- I haven't taken it but haven't felt any different. I will go tomorrow and have it checked.

I will continue to eat healthy and exercise. This is just a tool to help the process of reaching my goals. It doesn't mean it's not possible without it. Your body also naturally starts to have less of an appetite anyway when you eat less. But it's really hard to go from eating absolutely anything you want (and a lot of it) to eating smaller amounts of healthier food. It's not necessarily for everyone, but it sure has helped me to make the transition easier. Plus the extra energy is nice for really stressful 12 hour+ shifts at work without putting the crap from pop in my body.

So, JENNALYNN044, I have a question for you:

What will you do when you stop taking the pills, and no longer have an artificial supplement to suppress your appetite?

I have been taking ACE for almost 3 weeks now. No, it is not a miracle pill. No, it is not a get skinny quick pill. No, it will not work if you don't change anything else about your lifestyle. It simply suppresses appetite and gives you more energy.
I have been on SparkPeople for a few years now, so no, I'm not on here simply to promote the product. I am a nurse, and have done a lot of research on the ingredients. I highly recommend this product. It is super cheap compared to other supplements, ($1 per day--the same you would pay for a bottle of soda) and does what it says it does. I barely ever snack anymore, and when I do sit down to eat meals, I don't usually eat the quantity of food that I used to. It has also given me the energy to get through my workouts and my 12 hour shifts at work.
It is not typically safe to lose more than an average of 2 pounds per week, not should you expect to. Anything quick like that will likely lead to gaining it all back. ACE is just a tool to help you along the way, it is not the solution. In these 3 weeks, I have lost almost 5 pounds and some inches. I love it so much I have started selling it as well. And it's a great company.

KOMOSGRL518: Do not take any supplements, especially over the counter supplements which have no peer-reviewed evidence of efficacy. You need to consult your doctor about any medication, OTC or not, you take, because of your medical condition.

There are no shortcuts, no "get-thin-quick" pills. Focus instead on eating healthy and exercising. Sparkpeople does not support taking supplements for weight loss.

I am actually a new ace associate and I can't say enough wonderful things about this product I myself have lost 10 pounds since January but I will say in order to be successful with Ace you definitely need to be taking 2 a day and you need to be drinking your water where Ace helps bind the fat and the Carbs water help flush it out in regards to having your coffee what I would suggest is have your coffee first thing in the morning and take your ace two hours after or vice versa if you take your ace first then wait two hours to drink your coffee and then again allowed two hours for your second pill. If any of you have any questions please feel free to message me or email me my email is rockyouracebody@gmail.com you can find me the same way on Facebook good luck to all of you

I've been taking ACE for a few months now too. I haven't really experienced any weight loss except for the first week, but my appetite has suppressed and my energy level has increased a lot. Overall, I am happy with this product and will continue to use it simply for the energy any weight loss will be bonus!

I just started taking ACE on 03/06/13 and it's amazing the lack of cravings and the amount of energy I have. My biggest question is when is a good time that I can have a cup of coffee during the day I usually have one in the morning around 6 am and then take my pill at 7:30 which is 2 hrs after I've had breakfast. I've already lost 6 lbs. I really miss my coffee. Any suggestions?

If you need help sorting through the maze of health supplements, my MD. does free phone consults. It might be a good idea to discuss it with a Dr.

She uses 100% natural supplements that help resolve the issues your body is facing rather than weird chemicals.

Just an idea.

If it is going to be it is up to me !!!

I took ACE back in Wisconsin last year solely for the energy. Being a nurse, working crazy hours, busy family, lack of sleep, unhealthy eating, you name it. ACE stands for Appetite Control and Energy. Weight loss was just an awesome bonus for me. It gives me so much energy; I hardly know what to do with myself. For those working crazy shifts and/or have a busy life with kids and whatever else, it's just awesome in providing focus, energy and appetite control. And for those who have a sedentary existence (like me right now), it is giving me focus and helping me from being depressed and unmotivated, in addition to the other positives that I previously mentioned.

For me, I am not totally focused on the weight loss part. I had stopped taking it for a while and then I spoke with Amy a couple of weeks ago about being depressed (life's trials and tribulations that I haven't really shared over Facebook)...not being able to get out of bed, depressed, crying all the time, blah blah. She said, "Jen, you know what you need!??" I was like, DUH! and ordered ACE again that very day. Now that I am taking ACE again, I am ME again. It is just fantastic! So really, I couldn't care less about losing weight. For me, weight loss is just an awesome side effect. I want my wonderful self back for good! Iíve been out of bed each and every day with a smile! All day long, every day. with no tears, no whining, no depression, none of that crap. I am not out to "sell" anything, I just want everyone to feel as good as I do from ACE. And that's the honest to God truth.

There are no quick fixes with anything in life but ACE has given me the boost and motivation that I need in my mission for health and wellness. There will always be skeptics but I've seen firsthand awesome results and testimonies from people in my life.

ACE is naturally sourced from natural products, not "all-natural", there is a difference. ACE is a natural product that produces amazing results for it's customers; I know, I am one of them. Being educated on a product is key, not reading random opinions on the internet. If people have any questions, they should seek out a distributor who will provide documentation from Saba and Clark Bertram.

I need something to get me motivated. My depression/anxiety has me eating just because and i'm just tired all day. I have gained 3lbs in the last week. I feel like my mind is dissolving.

I love ACE -- it helps me stick to a diet. No cravings and energy to actually want to exercise.
