Metabolife

The supplement survived an FDA probe to continue its boast of appetite control.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Metabolife has been surrounded with a firestorm, due to the original product containing ephedra. Ephedra can be harmful to the body and is known to cause insomnia, rapid heartbeat, heart attack, stroke, seizure, nervousness and high blood pressure.

Metabolife offers a variety of products now containing new ingredients that still claim to control your appetite, burn fat and lose weight.

Diet and Nutrition

The Metabolife website has a modest list of recipes. The site also has articles on nutrition.

EXERCISE

The Metabolife website has a small list of exercise articles.

CONCLUSION

While the Metabolife product has lived a controversial story, the plan still boasts being the answer to control your appetite, burn fat and lose weight. The FDA does not support these promises by Metabolife.

Comming Misspellings

This is day 3 for me. The first day I could not go to sleep at all. Day 2 was ok. Today I am having rapid heartrate but I do have anxiety issuses and have been intaking tea. So all and all its ok so far. When I was in high school I was taking addipex my doctor prescribed to me. MetaboLife Ultra has the same feeling just like that medication, except its $80 cheaper!

Not a good choice...purchased at walgreens as a buy one, get one...I threw the other bottle away. Not worth the money!!! I couldn't even tell I had taken anything and it no where near offered ANY positive results!

This NEW product does not work at all. I used the previous Ultra Metabolife by the previous company-THAT product not only reduced appetite and increased your energy-it truly did aid in weight loss. This product using that same name is a fraud-does not work and should not have been allowed to continue using the name.

when i used metabolife weight management (stage 2), my appetite was curved, and i lost a few pounds. however, i had an insane thirst, upset stomach, and on/off headaches. i dont recommend these (im positive these problems were all a result of the diet pills). the same results as if i had exercised my booty off. ;o)

Today is my first day and my stomach has been soooooo messed up! I can't be certain it is from the pills, and I sure hope it isn't. But, I guess I will lose weight if my stomach stays this way, lol.

I've only been taking it for one day, so it's difficult to say how much it will work. I did lose a pound since yesterday though. I did notice that when I hit the gym last night, I was able to work out harder and do more weights. Normally at the gym I feel sluggish and want to give up early, but last night I felt like I could just keep on going.

I really liked it at first. Lost five pounds within the first 10 days, but then I started crying all the time for no reason. I researched side effects and noticed people had depressions issues with this. Everything else ws great except for that one huge drawback. So I'm no longer taking it and my mood is great.

For some reason this stuff made me sick and have rectal bleeding. This is the reason I stopped taking it.

Back when it had ephedra in it I lost 65 lbs in 5 months. Now it's not like it was. I wish I could still find the original.

I've been using this product for a short while and like It. I'm posting to caution that the "caffeine free" version contains 35mg of caffeine Per Pill-it says so right on the package. Takung the recommended dosage per day is almost as much caffeine as drinking 3 redbulls.

i have been on metabolife forr two days i am a smoker and i think that is the only reason i feel light headed some times especially after smoking but i deff see a difference in two days although i have been on a strict diet for two weeks in the last two days ive been hitting the gym twice as hard due to the high energy metabolife gives me! I feel great and it has actually helped me cut down on smoking and may actually help me quit because of the dizzy spells but other than that i am loving this pill i feel like my thighs have shrunk already!!! I DEFF RECOMEND BEST 20 DOLLARS EVER SPENT!!!

Just looking into buying this at the store today. i am going to start weight watchers and working out regularly to pair with this. By reading this it seems that not many people have crazy side effects- thats what scares me the most. Any comments on this? Also - does the caffeine free work just as well as the regular? I would prefer not to take all the caffeine bc it dehydrates you, etc. Thanks

I am on day 5 of Metabolife Ultra and so far i would say i have def. seen a difference in my energy and eating habits. I have stopped snacking between meals and cut out junk food. As far as my energy it has become higher but i noticed if i sit down and relax i start to feel a little bit depressed.

I am not sure whether to say I like it or not. The first week I lost 3 pounds and the next week I gained it back. Week 3 and I am bouncing daily between 1 and 2 pounds. I like the fact that I have more energy without the heart palpatations and jittery feelings but I have been sooooo gassey.
