Does it Work? - Any input on Zantrex 3?

I keep seeing these commercials blink on my tv screen.
Its supposedly ephedra free, no ma huang or anything like that. And sold for a whopping $50 a bottle for 84 pills which would last about a week.
I have a horrible time losing weight no matter how hard I diet and exercise (thinking of getting thyroid checked). I did try the Xenadrine last year when it still had ephedra :nono: in it and lost 26 lbs. I'm open to any suggestions.
Momma always said.. if it looks too good to be true.. it probably is.
I still had to ask if anyone tried it and the results. Thanks!

Yes it is too good to be true.
I just went to their website and here are the ingredients in the "new improved" ephedra free version:
Cocoa Nut (I'm pretty sure that should be "coca nut")
Thea Sinensis Complex (???)
Most of this stuff doesn't do diddly-squat for weight loss...and what's more...the 'active ingredients' are found in a WHOLE slew of other 'new improved ephedra-free fat burners' on the market (many of which are cheaper BTW).
IMO, the only real 'effective ingredient' in these pills is the caffiene, since it gives you a boost of energy. (pretty expensive caffeine source IMO).
It's all marketing...if you're truly eating clean and working out with regularity and intensity and not seeing results - I would concur with your decision to see your doctor...but I can't condone spending all that money for some questionable (to say the least) diet pills...
I just bought it this week and I am trying it out.
I started taking it on Sunday, 8/17/03. Today is Friday, 8/22/03, I am down 9 lbs.
It seems like it is working so far. It is curbing my appetite. Makes me feel full so I don't eat as much. That is a good thing for me.
I must tell you that I only take it 15 to 30 minutes before breakfast and lunch. I have not tried it at dinner time because I would not be able to sleep at night.
It has boost my energy level big time. So I have lots of energy. On the first 2 nights it affected my sleep. I didn't need my 8 hours.
I will keep you all posted on this after a full week of taking it.
This is my experience so far.
