Diet Fuel? Metabolife etc?

I didnt realize diet fuel had ephedrine in it unitl after i bought it.. im a runner and trying to put off a few pounds before the season starts. Is this stuff going to kill me? im getting sort of scared now, and im not quite 18 does that make a huge difference? What could happen?
By the way... i know i'm kinda double posting this, since someone just asked about metabolife, but i think im kinda coming from a different angle. I just want to know if it will give me a heart attack while im running or if it could be doing damage without me even knowing it!<p>[This message has been edited by babybox315 (edited 08-07-2001).]

Re: Diet Fuel? Metabolife etc?

you really should go see your doctor. everyone is different. i take 2 xenadrine before any workout, and feel great. but some people's body just freak out on ephedra. GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Diet Fuel? Metabolife etc?

Any of the products with ephedrine are not safe to use. The can cause many serious health related problems and yes they have caused quite a few deaths. I can't begin to understand why this product is still on the market let only why anyone would risk there health and life by taking it. I know my life certainly isn't worth the risk to use a product with ephedrine in it.

Re: Diet Fuel? Metabolife etc?

ephedra is getting looked at very hard now- it has been a part of the human diet FOR CENTURIES- found not only in ma huang but many many plants- part of some teas and more effective as a stimulant than caffeine- but only recently has it made a boom as a diet aid- which is why all of a sudden there are stories of people having major problems- people are downing it like it's going to turn them into playboy models overnight.

try something milder first- then try something with ephedra and really observe what it does- if you experience no side effects- then low doses probably aren't going to hurt you.
