      IMHO, it looks mostly like a massive dose of caffiene and other legal stimulants with diuretics and pointless herbs that sound clever.  IMHO designed to make you pee, feel wired, and hand over your money?  To much probably won't do your kidneys any favors....

          I haven't used it but based on the ingredients I would expect any weight loss to be either water loss or from stimulating more exercise.

    Any intake of something out of the ordinary should be taken in moderation. If you were not used to taking it, then your intake should be low to mid-level. You shouldn't always start out with the recommended dosages/application.

    You need to get your body to adapt and it only adapts at it's own pace and not before. Pushing your body into doing something out of the norm is where the shock comes from and can last up to several days of unpleasantness.

      I know this, I tried 2 packs because it recommend it. I started off with 1. I've been using supplements for years it just gave me a weird feeling. I just wanted to know if some one else had the expierence while using it.

        Considering it's got not only caffeine and guarana (which is basically caffeine) and yerba mate (caffeine again), but extracts from black, green, oolong, and white teas (which all contain caffeine), AND coffee bean extract (do I have to say it?), I'm not surprised.  That's a lot of frickin' caffeine.

        You should be careful what you put in your body.  You can't be careful what you're putting in it without knowing what you're putting in it.  So I'd start by reading ingredients lists.  tongue

    If you are still taking supplements and you took this also, there could be a mixture of the two that your body doesn't like. wink smile

    Optimus, I used it a few years back but the formulation was probably a little different than it is now. I had misery from taking it. It's just toooooo much overload. You can't even work up to getting used to this stuff, I don't think. I think there are better ways to get cut than using this stuff.

    The best way I know to cut is to focus on protein meals, with plenty of low carb veggies (stay away from anything starchy--you probably already know all this...) and then eat your carbs (complex carbs) after your workouts. Drink lots of water, but if you like it, put lemon slices in it. Good stuff.

    If you need to cut faster than that, you can add another cutting agent to the mix, but most of the ones out there are bogus. Something simple like green tea, or green tea capsules (Mega Green Tea is something I've used) that doesn't overload with stimulants. When you overload with stimulants, your sleep is going to suffer very badly, and then you'll be totally fatigued further because cutting puts your body in a stress/fatigue mode anyway. When you're constantly fatigued, your body will produce more cortisol than usual, and you'll hang on to the fat no matter what you do.

    Are you taking ZMA? You may want to. You might add inositol for relaxing the muscles at night. Great stuff. You can add tryptophan at night to help sleep also. If you can't make any progress because of fatigue, you're probably also overloading your thyroid, and may need a natural supplement for that. You can google and find options. Vitadigest.com has some good options as well.

    Be careful with this stuff!
