I've seen some posts on this site of ladies who are taking some kind of supplement to assist in their weight loss. I also see this board as a place where we can reveal our darkest secrets and not get bashed for it, bar none against any other support site out there. So with that being said.....
What are you taking to assist in your weight loss, meaning any vitamins, pills, hoobascoobas, tickytacks, flimflams, heebiejeebies... oh and don't forget skeebieskoos?
We are - if we are smart - already aware of the risks with some types of supplements, so I'd really like this post to just be admission time, a coming out of the closet... pray tell, what are you taking, and why did you choose that supplement?
I'll start.... (drum roll please)
-pine nut oil capsule/softgels: heard on webmd they help with hunger, and for me, they do!
-metamucil fiber capsules: heard on this board and elsewhere extra fiber helps with hunger (I used to eat a ton so I needed help). This is working too, extremely helpful for staying on plan for me.
-One a Day Weight smart Advanced daily m/v: just cause I know I need vitamins, especially when dieting, but I will likely continue to take them even after I meet goal. I like them a lot.
-Cylaris, a weight loss supplement, cause I don't sleep well (see my sob posts for details but still in mourning basically) and yes it has caffeine :lightning bolt just struck over here: and it helps me concentrate at work without jitters. It also gives me energy to do my workout when I get home. I only take 1 and not 2 like the bottle suggests cause I am using it more for energy than a magic pill. I've noticed a slight improvement in my sleeping since starting it, I guess, cause I'm able to exercise and thus help me relax more when its bedtime.
