So I finally took the plunge and joined MRC yesterday afternoon! I was given my conditioning menu and told to start that on Monday. I go to the Food Class next Friday to get the first menu.
I am trying to lose 54 pounds in 17 weeks. I REALLY want to do this.
So I've been looking around and really just want to know what you suggest. What are the best supplements to get?
What pills should I take? MRC6? Cortitrim? Do I need any of that stuff? Will it help any?

Any other suggestions? Thanks so much!

I am not really too sure how to help you because I have only begun a couple weeks ago. However, I wanted to welcome you and wish you luck!

Thanks!
I have also just tried the 30 day shred level 1 and that was crazy! I plan on keeping at it though, hopefully I'll be able to get through all of level 1 soon. Has anyone else done MRC and the 30 day shred workout together? What kind of results did you see?

At my center, they do not encourage exercise beyond leasurely walks. I don't agree with this, but then again, I tend to want to challenge them. I also challenge them on not drinking my pot of green tea in the morning. That said, I think exercise, in any instance, is wonderful and I have heard great things about the shred. Just be aware that you may not show the loss as they want since you will be gaining muscle.

My center highly encourages exercise - and I never have done enough. Your muscles need it.

The only supplement I take besides the HNSs is MRC-6.

I'm pretty sure green tea has caffeine, which isn't allowed on program.

WELCOME!! Congrats on joining.... I know that in itself can be a huge step! :) I am fairly new also, so not sure what to suggest other than really trying hard to stick with the program. I know the first week was super tough for me with cravings and wanting to eat at times other than meal times, but it also taught me what a huge' snacker' I was and this program has gotten that under control and now my cravings are much less often. The only pills I take are my multi, flax oil, and phentatrim. Some ideas that have helped me: to plan my meals at night for the next day so when its time to eat I am not spending time trying to figure out what to have and I keep a ziplock bag with some HNS's in it for when I am on the go.
Good luck!!
