Katokar's Journal, 22 May 2013

*NEED INPUT!!* So to boost my motivation, I've decided to start taking Green Coffee Extract and Raspberry Ketones for the first month or so of going back to the gym so I'm more encouraged to go to the gym with the extra weight loss... assuming it works, I mean it's not FDA approved that it facilitates weight loss, minimal-no impartial/independent studies have been done to prove results or side effects. I really hope it works on me. The Green Coffee Extract was the main component in a supplement package my father-in-law took and he lost 20lbs in one month and he didn't change his diet or lifestyle (he doesn't work out and spends most of his workdays driving.) I sincerely hope the same for me (except I'll be eating smaller portions than before, and actually going to the gym) so that I'll have a jump start on my wedding-weight goal. If anyone is reading this, have you used either of the above supplements? How did they work for you?

HI Katokar, I'm taking Green Coffee Bean purchased from the organic market TRADER JOE's. Personally, I started taking it about a month ago and in all honesty, I haven't noticed anything. Mine isn't the raspberry ketones but please let me know if it works because I'd be interested in trying a different brand if it works. I just get tired of spending money on things that don't deliver. I'm still taking them but I'm giving full credit to my weightloss for reduced calorie and exercise. ...the two things that always work for me. I'll be going home in 4 weeks to see my Family in Louisiana so this is my biggest motivation. ..A NEW ME.

I'm just using some off-brand stuff from walmart, just under $10 for 14 days supply of the Raspberry Ketones and the same for 15 days of the Green Coffee Extract. I've just started taking them 3 or 4 days ago, so I am not sure yet if they're working. GCE is supposed to show some results in a month and Raspberry Ketones in 3 months. My wedding *should* be my motivation (3 mo, 15 days) but I have all these mental obstacles to overcome before I am motivated enough to do stuff :(. LOL, so, keeping in mind that I'll be eating smaller portions and working out (we'll say occasionally to be safe) while taking the supplements, I will let you know in a month where I'm at! Both products are endorsed by Dr. Oz... but personally, I think he isn't the FDA, so what he says isn't independently verified... he's probably paid hundreds of thousands to endorse them by the "designer" weight loss companies charging way more than main components are themselves. OK, rambling. Anyway, around June 19 I'll post a status report.
