I get that.
The problem is that right now, I really need a boost. I don't look at pills to do all the work for me, but if there are supplements that help boost my diet and workouts then I want to go for it. Besides, we are supposed to see an improvement in 3 weeks. So, after that time we can say "no go" if they haven't done much to help. I double checked my measurements today (and weight) just in case I've had a drop in inches/weight since my Saturday Record day. My weight is at 270.4 (yay), but I didn't see any difference in inches yet. So, we will stick with my last recorded.
I want to talk about the products specifically on here, so I can record how it works or doesn't work for me. I'm curious to see what the side effects might be, if any, and generally how I feel taking them. If anyone ever decides to read this blog, maybe they will find usual information/reviews about this to help them make the decision.
Plus, considering how overweight I am, I am really curious to see if these supplements work. Sometimes I wonder if supplements are only meant for people already close to their fitness goals or just trying to truly 'lean up'. I really hope these work for me.
On to the products:
EvoLean is a non-stimulant (instead using green tea extract) product and only has 4 ingredients. The reviews all across the web are super high for it. Hubby and I have heard radio commercials about it and he did some extensive research on it. We found it at our local GNC. It is a little pricey, $70 a bottle (1 month supply), but if it works like it's supposed too then it's worth it to me.
The main focus is to help burn fat - it's a thermogenic.
Censor is a toning supplement made up of "good" oils for the body.It mainly focuses on helping to reduce belly fat (YAY!). It has Omega 3, 6 and 9. Yes, part of the ingredients include Fish Oil. This is really good for me, since I hate fish of any kind. It's also a little pricey at $50 a bottle.
Fortunately, GNC had a combo package deal, which helped with cost. B/c besides the combo pack, they had a buy 1 get the 2nd half off special. So, Hubby and I were able to each get a pack to try them out.
Also, come to find out today Hubby has lost a total of 30 lbs and is only 17 lbs away from his goal. *stun* While I am extremely happy for him, it just reminds me of my short fallings. I haven't even crossed the 20 lbs lost line and I still have about 130 lbs overall to lose. Such a long way for me to go. But he is supportive and I'm not giving up.
