Supplement #1: Has anyone tried the Garcinia Cambogia? I'm tired of reporting spam everyday with the Dr Oz logo on it for one! I starting taking it in Nov. I take the Islands Miracle 85% on Amazon. I have lost a few pounds but I'm a walking maniac anyway in NYC. I average 4mph 2 to 4hrs if I'm off. I've walked Staten Island end to end about 25x already. 15 miles. Best time 3hrs, 39min. I know, it's rediculous but I'm hooked on it, & to me, running don't give me as vigorous a workout as walking as fast as you can for hrs. Hate running! No impact either plus a good natural buzz. Ha. Funny thing is my weight don't really drop. It's consistent. I lost 50 about 8yrs ago when I started walking and 10 bounced back. So what? But I'm happy at 165 lbs at 5'10. Not bad for 46 & a man. Most guys my age are lathargic gutbusters with kids. Im married with lots of hobbies & time. No kids thank God! Never wanted em. Back to the supplement. My energy has definitely increased. I proved it. I ran out before reordering it 2x cause of $$ but I definitely don't have the same energy level all day without it. Very noticeable! It's worth it to me.
Supplement #2: I buy Phase 2 carb blockers from Natrol. It's basically White Kidney Bean Extract. Read about it! If you take it 30 min or so before you eat your stomach won't process the carbs. No carbs, loose weight. It does work. Proved it also. My wife Tina has type2 diabetes. 2 slices of pizza or a small bowl of pasta & her sugar jumps over 300! If she takes the Phase 2 carb blocker her glucose stays considerably lower. Tested the theory many times.
I end this with my situation. Since Nov. taking the 2 suplements & a min 2hr walk a day I lost 12lbs or so. Oh another thing. I quit drinking diet soda. Water only, about a gallon a day. I eat fairly healthy but am so active I really don't think about it. I eat peanut butter right out of the jar & don't gain weight. Could be one of the supplements or a combination but I'm in the shape of a guy half my age according to Mr MD. Something to research and/or try. It's so easy to gain weight but an Act of Congress to loose it. If I stay as I am, good enough! Stay healthy guys & gals! Live long & prosper!
