    Tried it.. soso results.

    I lost five pounds in two days earlier in the week... that nasty intestinal virus that's going around did it.

    I am trying to drop a few pounds for the trip to Europe this summer. I have dragged myself back to the weight room at the station when I have the time to work out (and since the promotion, it's not as often as I should!) and I am eating healthier. I take the dogs out for a minimim of a two mile walk during the course of the day when I am off duty, 1 mile during duty days.

    When ordering take out food... I spilt it into two portions. I have one at home and the other for a meal at the station and vice versa.

    I'm trying to stay away from the snacks...

      To lose weight you have to burn more calories than you take in. How many days a week do you workout? What kind of cardio do you do? If your body is not changing then change your workout. Don't do the same thing every time. The way to lose weightis to eat healthy and exercise. That means more chicken and fish, veggies, fruits, whole grains. Cut out the high fat, refined sugars.

      Supplements are a waste of money.

        Like others said, after ephedra was removed almost all lost their weight loss kick. However there are a few products out there. I use the GNC at NavSta Norfolk so I am not paying as much, but either the Thermo Cardio System OR another with a very similar name do help.

        NOTE: These are not cure alls. You HAVE to use these with a proper diet and exercise. All these products do, is raise the metablism of the body while you are exercising. So if you are exercising like me first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, these will boost your body into tapping into your stored fat sooner than it would have normally. You are still going to have to do a minimum of 30-35 minutes of some form of brisk cardio exercise. However instead of taking 20 minutes to raise your heart rate and metablism up to about 35-39% of capacity, it will only take you 10-15 minutes.

        I am currently using the one and I have dropped 2 or 3 pounds in two weeks.

        'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

          I have some GNC protein shakes that I used to use to replace snacking... and when I snack.... I can gulp down a whole large pizza....

          So it kinda was a benefit to me.

          My first physical at work... i weighed like 164.... but that was after a two week kidney stone process

          Last year was like 171...

          This year... I'm hoping for like 175 but around a 5-10% body fat would be great. My first year was 8 and last year was 11.

          But, like I said, the two week crack diet will do wonders for your shape. I would gurantee success.

          For a more detailed plan, please send $89.95 to me and I will get you a detailed plan that includes but is not limited:

          How to run from the Cops
          How to hold up a convience store
          And how to convince others that its perfectly healthy to be up for 96 hours straight drinking nothing but coffee and a extra non-dairy added "energy kicker"

                  I know a girl that used to ride a bike that had no seat......weeeeeeeee!!!



                  .....I don't think she useed hydroxicut though.


                  Seriously though, if something is offering results that seem too good to be true, they probably are.......The first thing is to acknowledge that you are fat and need to commit to hard work hard and commitment.

                  Hello, my name is Steve.......and I'm fat.......



                  .....See? ....easy.

                    Yep, this all it takes... It all about what you put in vs what you burn-out... I cleaned up my eating habits back during Dec. of last year no refined sugars, all natural Fats from fish,flax oil, Natural p-butter, and today i've cut close 35 pounds of bodyfat... For me I started at 349 and 38% bodyfat today I'm 302 and at 27% bodyfat... Shooting for 15%... I do cardio 5-6 days week and lift 3 days a week....

                    The only Supplements that I use are Whey protein, Fish oil, Flax oil...

                        Use ZEUS To accomplish this.........

                        Hey everyone, I have been involved in the 911 field for 18 years now, the last two being a patrol Sgt. The thing that really annoys me is that these "fine citiziens" we deal with are getting bigger and stronger and my officres are getting hurt......I've been the strength coach for a lot of guys who went on to play in the NHL, 23 in fact... they are all using these two great new supplements...and I want to even the odds for our brothers and sister's in blue and red...I have been in many pro training rooms and right now the pro's are using a new stable form of Creatine called Purple K Creatine...amazing benefits, no side effects like bloating, cramps or water retention...the other new innovative supplement s ZEUS, its a natural stimulant that gets your body to produce more of it's own testosterone.... both are in compliance with the CCES and WADA as well as the NCAA

                        Both can be found at www.hockeysupplements.com as of this Friday

                        If you want training advice let me know...Train the way the pro's do...

                        Fraternally yours...Doug

                          Ephedrine is dangerous and banned by the FDA, end of story.

                          Weight loss pills really aren't necessary because good old fashioned diet and exercise will do the trick every time. Not to mention 95% of weight loss pills online are harmful, scams, or ineffective. If you really want to you can take some natural supplements like green tea and cayenne to facilitate weight loss, but I wouldn't count on a miracle pill.

                              Yeah it's an old topic but the info is still relevant. Ephedrine is still banned, but companies continue to market it. It sickens me to see a dangerous product get popular for the second time...

                                My apologies for commenting on a resurrected thread, but it is a valid point. While I was in the military, my unit banned the use or possession of any supplements similar Hydroxycut. The reason being that we had several heat exhaustion/heat stroke incidents in a short time on one deployment, all involving someone who was taking these sorts of supplements.
                                Figure in that we do an awful lot of hard work with plenty of heavy gear, and you could quickly have the same problem. Lose weight the way it was meant to be done: put down the fork/xbox controller/remote, get off the couch, and get moving one way or another!
