Well yes I am excersing while taking it not hard excersice cause i had back surgery but mostly walking everday! I am "trying" lol to eat right but other than that theres not much else i am doing...also drink ALOT of water .....hope this helps some more... amanda
Amanda, what kind of food are you eating and could you give me an example of a typical day. I am taking xenadrine EFX and I am on zoloft. Are you taking the Hydroxycut with or without ephedrine. I don't think that they recommend mixing an antidepressant and ephedrine that is why I am trying the EFX. If you have any info on this subject I would appreciate it. Also, did you have any side effects with the hydroxycut? I need to lose 30 pounds and would like to lose 20 of those by the end of July. Tina
hey Jenn, I have tried both Xenadrine supplements, by far the Xenadrine EFX is better. NO Ephedrine!! I have had no adverse side effects, plus green tea is a great anti-oxidant. Good Luck <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif"> best to all!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wave.gif"> kjack<p>[This message has been edited by kjack (edited 05-20-2002).]
Well first of all my sis is on antidepressant and she was told not to take any diet pills while on them...I would ask u please ask ur doctor in regards to that cause I am can't give u any personal advice on that subject.
Yes I do take the Hydroxycut with Ephedrine the only real side effects I have had from it is sometimes (not everday) i get really nervous and shaky after taking them...witch yes I think that has to do with the Ephedrine....I myself am trying to find something else to take with no Ephedrine in it....for instance the Xenadrine..if u could would u let me know how that is working for u and if u have had any side effects from the Ephedrine free Xenadrine?
For a Typical day meals in the morning I usually eat a bowl of Special K with skim milk,( iknow its not the best milk but its good for you) and a piece of toast....For lunch I eat some kind of salad sometimes a regular one sometimes a grilled chicken one and a cup of fruit or yogurt.....For dinner like last night I had a grilled Chicken breast a cup of green beans and a lil bit of squash (i am not so sure how good squash is to eat while on a diet) but thats what my hubby cooked so i ate it..lol....and then for my snacks i have a banana or a few carrots.....well that what i try to eat....not sure how much it will help u but it has done pretty good for me .......Best of luck to you and let me know how ur doing.....Have a great day
Also wanted to say that there is another post by char15c and he has some new kind of pills i have not heard of but they sound ok they say u can loose weight fast so i will see how his progress goes and hockeymom if u would let me know ur progress with the xenadrine that would be appreciated maybe one of these to will do good for me since the hydroxycut makes me nervous i want to try something else !! thanks everyone and GOOD LUCK TO ALL Amanda
Just wanted to let you gals know that so far I really haven't lost anything on the EFX, however, I have not started working out and I am having a hard time cutting out the "bad" foods. I haven't gained any weight so I would say that if I start eating better and exercise that they should work pretty good. Before I started taking zoloft I used to take diet pills that had ephedra in them and they definitely worked but there are definitely side effects: nervousness, sleeplessness, dry mouth. I guess it just depends on the individual. I will tell you that I never had problems with anxiety untill about a year after I started taking the ephedra. I am not positive that it was the cause but it is very possible. I also know that there is a chance of having a stroke while taking ephedra. I seem to be having hormonal problems as well as anxiety so this could just be a coincidence but I would say that it is better to be safe than sorry. If the ephedra wasn't a health risk I don't think that alot of the companies would be coming out with the "ephedra free" products. Tina
I have been taking Xenadrine efx and not having any results either--i have actually gained a couple pounds--and am not eating any more than before--anyone else have this happen?--i'm really bummed!!! I have had luck on Stacker 2 but i hate the jitters Ehinephrine gives me--i am also trying this new product--Genical--anyone heard of it?
Amanda-I just started taking Hydroxycut and I was wondering what your height, wt is and how much weight you want to lose, if any? Thanks for all your input above-it really helps alot! Oh-how far are you walking?
I have tried both and I like Hydroxycut so much better. Hydroxycut includes an appetite suppressant unlike Xenadrine. The ingredients are the same with the exception of the appetite suppressant. I have tried the Xenadrine EFX and hated it – completely different reaction than the original one with ephedrine. I was on it for about 2 weeks and returned it back to GNC (money back guarantee!! works great when you want to try something new without wasting your money). On Hydroxycut, I don’t feel hungry and for the first time in my life, I forget to eat a meal!! That reaction never happened while taking Xenadrine. I’m not saying that taking Hydroxycut will allow you to starve yourself but it allows me to be in control when and what I eat (especially at the end of the day). I make better, healthier choices when I am not a nervous wreck wanting to raid the refrigerator. Hope this helps – Oh yeah, I have lost 15 pounds in 1 month by using Hydroxycut and during the first month of using Xenadrine (with ephedrine) I lost 5 pounds. When I switched to Xenadrine EFX, I lost 1 pound in 2 weeks – to discouraging to keep me going.
