I just picked up a bottle of these at the store..Im wondering if any one else has tried these and have they worked?? Did they increase your metabolism, give you more energy, and help you lose weight along with a healthy diet and exercising??? Thanks!
I am a 37yr old and have maintained my weight through excercise for a couple of years, I had been taking the one-a-day for women for about 3 years, so when they came out with this new one one-a-day weightsmart I bought it thinking all it could was help, instead I starting gaining weight, after I gained 5 LBS I was concerned, taking this new pill was the only thing I was doing different, I researched the added ingredient EGCG and couldn't find anything negative about it, I stopped taking it and my weight is back where it was, so in summary it did not work for me.
I started taking these about 3 weeks ago, along with l-carnitine after lunch. I have lost 8 lbs. I had been exercising & eating healthy for about 2 months before w/out losing any weight. I feel like they are working for me. You do have to eat something with them or you will feel sick. Try to take them before bed if you continue to feel sick.
I always take mine after I finish lunch and never have a problem. In the past I tried taking my vitamins in the morning on an empty stomach but they made me extremely naseaous, You should take them w/ a lot of food. A meal, not just a snack. It helps 100%. As for helping me to lose weight, I haven;t noticed any difference.
I took them with food and they still made me extremely ill. But ALL multi vitamins seem to do that to me! So what I did is I bought some generic Children's vitamins, like Flintstones. I know that sounds crazy but they are the only vitamins that don't make me throw up!
