I'm 5'10/was 232 lbs, battled my weight most of my life. I'm the only one I know who gained 30lbs on Weight Watchers! Even the Adkins nurses were stumped as they tracked me walking 5/13 min miles 7 days, low fat/carb/cals, although they did consider potential underlying factors such as cortisol. Then I injured my hip & back came the 25 lbs I did lose. After years of injuries, femal ... Show Full Comment

The first time I took this, it helped me lose 30 lbs. I was 190 lbs. However,I hit a road block and could not lose anymore weight regardless of strict dieting and exercising 5 days a week. I had a lot of energy. IT IS AN AMPHETIMINE so I expected that. This time around, I have lost no weight, experienced extreme insomnia, have had dry mouth, and strange dreams. On the weekends, I only take one hal ... Show Full Comment
