    You know.. the trimspa, hydroxycut, quickslim etc etc.?

    I'm looking to increase my metabolism and wondering if this stuff is a waste of money or if it really helps. I am working out and watching what I'm eating, so I am not relying on this as a quick fix pill, but an addition to what I'm doing now.

    Any previous experience?

      I vaguely remember hearing something on the news about research on Trimspa showing it didn't work. But I might be wrong on that.... I haven't heard anything about the others.

      Maybe a dietician or doctor would have some advice on how to kick the metabolism into high gear too? I would bet there are different foods that would help increase, or different patterns to eating (like always eating breakfast, or eating more meals in a small quantity, etc...)...

        I've used "hydroxycut hard core" and it worked great. I does take some time for you body to get used to it, but well worth the money.. IMO

        I would not trust trim spa, I have heard some bad things about it and isn't Anna Nicole evidence enough that it might have negative long term effects.

        I have heard green tea is a great appetite suppresant.

          Just be careful, some of those pills have stuff in them that can cause some serious health problems.

            I took a diet pill for about 2 months and I was fine. But I did it in conjuction with working out and it was manly to help to build musle tone. I think short term it would be ok.

              I have also used hydroxycut but not in conjuction with regular workouts. At the time I worked midnights and it gave me such energy! I also didn't eat much, don't know if it was the timing or the appetite surpressant.

              I'd definately try it again; maybe even the variety TammyM had.

              FI tried Xenadrine since he didn't feel an affect from Hydroxycut. He preferred that. I tried it as well as it's effect isn't necessarily as noticable as far as energy. On both however, I eith lost weight or maintained alot easier.

                I've tried Zantrex-3 (Blue bottle) and it worked really good. I exercised and tried to eat less at the time but i am pretty skinny already and for me to loose weight is not easy so i think Zantrex works pretty well.

                  I tried Hydroxycut once and it made my heart race all the time. I was super jittery too.

                    One of my friends used to use hydroxycut to and it made her really hyper and when she drank alcohol while on it, she acted like a totally different person, it wasn't pretty.
