So I'm sure you've all heard the hype about the "green tea-coffee bean extract" pill. Dr. Oz says it's "natural weightloss" and gives you energy at the same time. I thought....awesome, I'm gonna try it! I'm VERY anemic and the iron pills, no matter what brand.....make me feel like I'm giving birth! Yes, the stomach pain is that bad from them! In fact, with my first son we actually went to labor and delivery because I thought I was in labor!!! Anyway...if this green tea pill is supposed to give you some extra energy, I want it!! I need all the energy I can get, thanks to my little Drew and his hatred of sleeping! :)
I started the pill 3 days ago, I only take one a day (you can take 2) but I see no difference in the energy level. However, I do notice less bloating?? I like it. There are no side effects, which is nice. No shaking, heart pounding...nothing like that.
I'm not an advocate for "diet pills" I've been there, done that, lost the weight, and gained it back. I went on a pill through my Dr after my first son was born. Made me completely not hungry, and I dropped 25 pounds in less than 3 months. You are only allowed to be on the pill for 3 months at a time, then off for 6 months. Every 2 weeks I had to weigh-in with my Dr. and if you didn't lose any weight, you didn't get your prescription refilled. Simple as that. I had no trouble losing, lost 11 pounds in the first 2 weeks! My Dr. said the average was 7 pounds, and I needed to slow down. Well when you aren't the least bit hungry, you don't eat, and you lose weight, and you lose it FAST! And, like everyone when you see results....you think "hell yeah, let's keep going!"
