Re: Supplements when I was losing weight. I would only take HNS and MRC-6 Cortitrim, and Fat & Carb Blocker . Halfway thru my weight challenge, I notice people on this forum ordered elsewhere and that is what I did. I stopped the MRC-6 and Cortitrim completely, and ordered my HNS from Diet Direct when they were on sale. That included their Cocoa. There is no exact replacement for Fat & Carb Blocker and I still take that, but only when I eat out. I take maybe one HNS a day now or none.
For you that were here when I was losing weight, you recall me having some issues with MRC and all the supplements they were pushing and I don't blame them, that is their job, and I guess that is where they make their money, but I refused and kept refusing. Told them I wanted to try without them and I stuck to my guns. My friend who is on maintenance also with MRC, told them she had medical issues and doctor said to stay off all supplements and that worked for her. Another one of my friends on MRC told them the truth, her budget would not afford all the supplements.
If I ran out of HNS from MRC, then I would buy a box till Diet Direct had them.And I buy my Fat & Carb Blocker from them.
I do believe that HNS is part of the losing weight program, and I did take them till I lost the weight, but like I said, started buying from Diet Direct when on sale. The HNS I order from Diet Direct is called Proti Diet, and I do not order the powdered , I like the concentrated gel ones.
The only difference in Nutrition facts on HNS is MRC sodium is 15 mg, Diet Direct, 5mg.
MRC Potassium 15, Diet Direct 10
Carbs are the same
Sugars the same and both are 15 g protein.
Cocoa, which is a creamy, I order from Diet Direct, and order Bari Wise Hot Chocolate.. Try the variety pack.. Some yummy flavors.. Cocoa helps my chocolate craving I may get at night. During the summer, I make cocoa during day, refridgerate it and add a slight amount of soy milk and it is a delightful cold drink.
Many take all the supplements from MRC and lost weight and are on maintenance. The choice is yours, really.
