In case anyone doesn't want to click on the link above, I'll summarize it.
It's a TAINTED PRODUCT WARNING from the FDA that says you should throw this stuff away and go to a doctor.
Bella Vi Insane Amp'd contains DRUGS that are not disclosed on the label. It has sibutramine, the main ingredient in the old prescription drug Meridia, which was withdrawn from the market in the US because it was harming people. (It increases blood pressure and could make you have a stroke.) It also has phenolphthalein. That's the chemical they spray around crime scenes when they're looking for blood evidence. It used to be used as a laxative, but they found out that it causes cancer.
In other words, this "natural weight loss supplement" is poisoned with dangerous drugs, and the company lies to you about it.
I will tell you how to...for Free!!!!!!!! That right, for free!!!
1. Stay in your given calorie range. The lower you stay, the faster you will lose. You know you are in your range by tracking every day.
2. Stay full (not starving!!!) with protein, fiber and healthy fat.
3. Drink 8 glasses of water a day
4. Do not eat processed food (chips, cookies, white bread). Replace with whole grains and veggies.
5. Exercise a minimum of 20 minutes 5 days a week.
Now, take the money you would spend on 1 month of this crap, multiply by 12 (please add in shipping costs)...and either burn it - might as well...same difference. Or, take that money and donate to a homeless shelter, or food bank (a place that could sorely use that money), or buy yourself an elliptical trainer, new wardrobe, weekend getaway, etc.
The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.
I was a size 5 until I had kids. At my heaviest (August of 2013) I was 260 lbs. and size 20W. I heard about Bella Vi supplements from a friend who had lost a lot of weight with them. I started on the Afire in August. I should add that I have tried literally everything to lose weight. Fad diets, 5 day workout weeks, doctors plans, pills, you name it. I used to play volleyball in high school and college so I know what a good workout is.
Under my physician's watch, I took the Afire for 3 months. At the end of the 3 months, I went back to the doctor and had a complete physical with blood drawn as well. He was amazed that I had lost 40 lbs. in 3 months. This is the same doctor I have had for over 10 years so he has watched me go up and down the scale. The results from my physical and blood work showed that my cholesterol was down, my triglycerides looked much better, my blood pressure had decreased significantly and my overall health looked much better. He ok'd the pills.
It is now March of 2014 (about 7 months since I started Afire) and I am very happy to report that I have dropped from 260 lbs to 194 lbs. (I am now a size 12-14) I started working out 3 days a week in January which has helped me drop more inches but not weight. I feel fantastic. My anxiety is gone, my depression is gone, my energy levels are great, my concentration and focus has never been better.
I have NOT tried the Insane Ampd but I know some people that have been successful on it. The laxative effect someone mentioned did not happen to me on the Afire. The only side effect I had from it was a lack of sleep for the first week. I have now been off the pill for 1 week and still feel great. I am still losing inches, but am now battling loose skin. Any recommendations there?
I would recommend you trying the pills as long as your doctor is okay with it. I would however, advise you to start at the lower end of the line with Azure or Afire. If you have high blood pressure, watch yourself on the Afire because of the Licorice Root, it can increase blood pressure over time.
I MUST NOTE that I DO NOT sell these products. I only purchase them from reps. I am in no way benefiting from anyone buying these pills. I only want to share my story because these pills have changed my life. They were the only thing that has worked for me thus far.
It has two plant-based laxatives; senna, which is the same thing that's in Ex-Lax and Senocot, and cassia, which isn't used commercially as a laxative much anymore because it can work very suddenly and cause an embarrassing accident. It also has caffeine under more than one name. The other ingredients are just miscellaneous junk plants that have pretty names but do nothing for you. So you might lose weight from it, just like you would lose weight by abusing Ex-Lax, because you're giving yourself permanent diarrhea.
You're also likely to be giving yourself permanent credit headaches. It's sold through "distributors" whose websites look very sketchy. It's a pyramid scheme where they actually make their money by charging people to sell it, not from the product itself. They charge a fairly hefty "set-up" or "buy-in" that includes very limited instructions in how to set up a website, so the "distributors" can take your credit card and your money but they don't have enough training to keep the card info secure. This is a very, very common way to get your identity stolen.
There's nothing in this product that you can't get in your neighborhood drugstore, and if you buy it there, at least you don't have to worry that you're giving your credit card number AND YOUR HOME ADDRESS to a website run by amateurs who could be doing anything with it.
