Healthy, Wealthy & Wise - 4 Supplement Review

Updated on June 15, 2012

GNC Pro Performance Sliced Review

I've been taking this dietary supplement for a few months now and though I pride myself on researching products before buying them, (especially if I'm consuming them), I purchased and started using this product with nothing but the recommendation of the store clerk.

For the most part if you can't find any info on a product, especially after Googling it, then you probably shouldn't take it. And if you go to GNC or whatever site your product in question is from, you search for it and can't find it, then again, don't buy it, just walk away. This is the case with GNC's Pro Performance Sliced product, the only place you can actually get info on it is AT the store or from the bottle. I can't even find it on their website which still freaks me out! BUT I'd like to say I got lucky and here's why.

There are millions of products out there that claim to help weight loss and I will admit that I tried a couple over the years, hoping to find that magic pill to get rid of my fat. I hate to be the one to say it but there's no magic pill, if there was, gyms would be obsolete and people would be skinny but we all know that isn't the case and obesity is not becoming, it IS a huge epidemic and a very large problem. With that said, why am I reviewing a dietary pill, or in regular terms a weight loss pill? I'm reviewing it because I tried it, and though I don't believe in taking pills for things I want there to be some information out there so that the next person looking to buy this product or recommended it will have some knowledge on it.

I've been taking it for a few months now and actually quite like it, that being said I don't like pills of any form let alone taking the odd advil or tylenol for a headache. So why have I been taking this pill? I find it has actually helped me, the main ingredients are green tea extract and caffeine both do good things for your body and both help boost my metabolism.

I've always had a low metabolism, gotten sick and gained weight very easily, I started drinking green tea after some research as I found that it boosts ones metabolic rate and cleanses your body, caffeine I found also does this and they both obviously enhance alertness and energy, this product has both those things. The metabolic and heart rate when raised make the body use more energy and when using more energy more calories are burned and in turn weight is lost. This supplement has boosted my metabolic rate and allowed me to push through some plateaus in my weight loss. It also contains thermogenic's which raise body temperature which also in turn uses energy and thus burning calories and fat.

There are a few things I should mention though. As I said there are no magic pills and this is no exception. I find it helps me but I do not suggest it for anyone else, I am only writing this for those who are looking at taking it and want some info on it. The other BIG thing I should mention is this is not for the faint of heart, and I mean that in the literal sense. It raises your heart rate and if you have ANY issues at all with your heart known or not known you should NOT take this, or consult a doctor before use! You don't want your heart to LITERALLY explode!

This has helped me but I also fixed my nutrition, caloric intake, and exercise FIRST, so all of that combined would lose weight itself, this is just something I started to take and continue to do so as I feel it helps me stay away from colds and flus. But that's probably a bit more psychosomatic than anything else. If you're looking at taking this or any other supplement, do your research, and make sure it's the right thing for you, but again the best is just cleaning up your nutrition and exercising.

I like this product, I am currently taking it, and have been finding great results. I can not for sure say if the results are from the supplement itself or from the extra exercise, lowered caloric intake or anything else I've done but I personally believe that it has been a mixture of everything! I am a huge advocate of healthy living, eating and exercising and putting only organic nutritive things into ones body, hypocritical as it may be I do like this supplement and though I don't suggest it, I take it and do like it.

Take with discretion and please consult a physician if you take any supplement. Most things can be taken in with proper nutrition and that's how I suggest you take them!

Give me your feedback please! I am always looking for better ways to intake these things without the pills.

I'll upload a full list of ingredients soon, and a better photo.
