im not sure if its the capsaicin or the green tea so ill take them separately and see what it is. it hasnt happened every time just when i dont eat before. ah ha. i usually take pills then eat. ill also reverse that and see if it knocks the burn. or ill go another route.

Got some cayenne fruit pills and green tea extract pills at walmart last night. Took one cayenne and 2 green tea pills this morning. The sensation in my stomach was really weird a few minutes after i took them, but I drank my slim fast and it went away. So we'll see how it goes. I read an atricle yesterday in "For Women First" about capsaicin and how it "turns fat into a metabolic grenade".

Here in Canada I saw the capsaicin pills for $6 and $10 . The front of the bottle reads cayenne. I went with the $10 bottle as each serving has about 40,000 units while the cheaper bottle has 10,000. I bought them at bulk barn.

I too notice a weird sensation if I take them before my meal so I just take one after. I take a capsaicin, 2 green tea and one chromium. I will post progress since it's only day 2 but since yesterday I'm down 4lbs. Bye bye, carb bloat!

Take anything you read in that magazine with a grain of salt. We've had experience with their "fitness" writers because they have frequently contacted us over the years. However, most of the ones we've dealt with were inexperienced journalists who seemed to lunge at the whatever was getting the most hits in Google. Several of our members have had direct experience with them after they twisted their success stories into fiction.

(natalia)..How many times a day do you take the capsaicin, green tea and chromium? I am going to try it. I have researched a lot of different things and this sounds the most promising.

Any one have any updates? I'm interested in these, and from what I've read on this thread, there aren't any bad side effects as long as you eat with them. But I'd hate to spend the money and end up wasting it :/

Default Just started.

So... I just started on Cayenne Fruit as well as B12 for metabolism and for energy. I am also starting on a combo of insanity and P90X as well as jogging. I have been stuck between 168 and 175 since having my last baby 10 months ago. Given, it was baby number four but I am so discouraged to not be able to cut this weight... I am hoping that this works as much as you guys!!!

I started with 3 times a day, now I take it twice a day and sometimes dump the cayenne if my tummys acting up. I have Crohn's so sometimes have tummy issues. Since July 2, I have lost nine lbs. This is unusual for me.

HI EVERYONE:
I've been taking Green Tea capsules. I saw them mentioned on the Dr. Oz show. I try to take them around 8:30 in the a.m. Dr. Oz also had suggested time line for your daily schedule and 8:30 a.m. was the suggested time for a metabolism boost.

Whether they are working or not, I believe they are working and I have settled into a consistent 2 lb. loss a week.

I've been doing quite a bit of research on this topic and the results seems promising. I did find a few scientific journals with actual research and data, which did show some increased results (although nothing magical). I will post links if I can find them again.

I figure it can't hurt to try so I purchased Cayenne Fruit ($6.00) and Concentrated Green Tea Extract ($3.00) both from Wal-Mart. I am planning on starting tomorrow, taking 1 Cayenne Fruit and 2 Green Tea pills twice per day, with breakfast and lunch. I will post again and let everyone know of anyone side effects, etc.

I want to go today buy the capsaicin or the cayenne fruit and the green tea pills but would like some insight into what is working as far as brands etc. I saw a post that says Walmart has some of them. What is the Chromium for that people are taking? Thanks to you all for any help you can proide to get me started!!!! Hugs from Colorado!!!
