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.

I find it very hard to start a diet (change my eating habits).Metabalife gives the kickstart that I need. I go up and down with my weight and meatblife helps maintain. When I first start to take them,it gives me so much energy. I move more and eat better it really curbs my appetite. After about a month or so I have lost 10 or more lbs. and I use less and less. When I feel my eating habits start to get under control I stop using them. It has alot to do with you wanted to lose the weigh and making life style changes. When you say to yourself enough is enough. You have to recognize what triggers your eating. For me it's stress or boredom. I have always been happy with the results.

I took it many years ago and maintained weight loss. I stopped because I became pregnant. I'm currently taking metabolife again after a few years and it is a wonder pill. It curbs my appetite and gives me loads of energy to chase my 3 year old around.

For everyone who said they took it a few years ago and had negative results or health problems, THAT WAS A FEW YEARS AGO. They took Metabolife off the market b/c of the ephedra. It now does not contain ephedra b/c ephedra is not FDA approved. They revamped it so now your butt should not bleed.

I took this for a month a year ago. It helped me lose 10 pounds! I also included exercise and eating healthy in with this. Then I stopped I gained all the weight back in about a month and a half. I also stopped eating right and exercising like I did. For some reason this stuff made me sick and have rectal bleeding. This is the reason I stopped taking it. My doctor recommended to stop taking it because it was the cause of my anal bleeding. Finally a year later I went in for my physical and I was talking to my doctor about this making sure everything is ok. He told me to try for a month just exercising like I was and eating right. Sure enough after a month I had lost ten pounds again! The metabolife didn't make a difference for me at all!! The best method is exercise and eating right because we all know that your weight depends on 80% of what you eat 10% exercise and 10% genetics! Exercise eat right and if you stop you wont put the weight back on like if you quit taking pills.

I am ok with it. It does scare me to take them, but I feel that the product has helped me loose weight. I was just wondering if what the 9 year old girl wrote was true and if so, was because of the pills?

I was reading these comments to see if anyone else experienced what I did while taking Metabolife. I tried it about 5 years ago. Within a day of starting the pills, I started bleeding rectally. Stopped taking the pills, stopped bleeding. Started taking, started bleeding again. Needless to say, I did not take them long enough to see if I'd lose any weight.

I'd just like to warn you all not to take it. My mother died from using this prduct when i was 9. and it's the hardest thing to live through knowing someone so beautiful died because of the standards we set for ourselves.

I took Metabolife when it first came out and required an Rx from your doc. I lost over ten lbs in a month and dropped six dress sizes in 3-4 months. People were in awe, the fat just seemed to melt off daily. I had to stop due to some skin problems that developed (probably due to lack of hydration) and anxiety. Now that there is an ephedra free version I am tryring the Green Tea Formula. Three lbs this week with daily excersize and five meals a day + tons of H20. I find that I have to excersize to burn off the energy or I don't sleep! That's great motiviation to get my sneakers on!! As an added bonus my productivity at work is up ten fold. Wish me luck!!

I have only been taking it for one week i am also doing weight watchers with it and I have lost 7 pounds i am very pleased. the energy it gives me is great i walk 2-4 a day. For those people who said they gained it back it may be because they think they can just stop a diet or exercise because they have reached their goal. Being healthy and active is a life long deal you can't just stop and expect to stay a small size so keep that in mind if you are wanted to start this product!!!

I only take 2 at the most at the day. I could never do as it says on the directions. I love Metabolife. It gives me much-needed energy. I run almost every day but I still need the Metabolife because I am a heavy eater. .

Im 18 and just started using Metabolife ultra a few days ago, but i dont work out at all and i eat whatever i want but the pill is supposed to curb the appetite so i figured its not that much calorie intake. I just want to know, all of these success stories did all of you who lost the weight work out? because i will if thats what it takes. I just want to lose 10 pounds.

I took Metabolife when it first came out in 2000 and lost over 50 pounds, I maintained that weight for a long time but recently I have gained 20 of it back, so I am looking to start the system again. I have had no real side effects that I know of, but with the new formula I am interested to see what happens and see if the results are the same. When going into these ventures I think it is import to note that healthy eating and exercising is the only sure fire way to lose and keep the weight off. Changing life habits is the best bet. I am hoping this will help me kick start my weight lose and encourage me to return to the habits the pills originally instilled in me (eating less). I wish everyone the best of luck in however you chose to take off the weight.

I took metabolife a few years ago and I lost over 30 pounds. I felt so good and had tons of energy. I stoped taking it and yes I gaind the weight back and then some. I have a little high blood pressure so I will try the caffine free formula. I pray it works. This time when I loose the weight I will continue to eat healthy and work out a couple times a week.

I took Metabolife when it first came out and I lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks. But due to the large amounts of caffeine used in it, it dried me out so badly that it damaged my voice and I am singer. So I stopped taking it and gained every pound back and some more. I am working out now and it is working with no horrible side effects.

FYI

I have tried several products from Exenadrine, Zantrex III, Ephedra, and Hydroxycut (Hope i spelled them right!) over the past 3-5 years, and so far Metabolife Ultra is the most mild i have used, i am not over weight and and exersize on a regualr basis and take energy pills more for a boost when i need it so on average maybe 5-7 pills per week, any kind of stimulant you take will accelerate your heart rate and increase your blood pressure because that is what it is designed to do to a certain degree, almost all energy pills have heavy doses of caffeen sp if you are taking stimulants make sure you are just listening to your body, the goal in most cases is to maintain that "warm" feeling between exercising which is your metabolism working overtime and your heart rate speed staying at an increased level, if you take something like this and just stop suddenly you are removing that "edge" so you will not maintain the same level of calorie burn so it should be no surprise if it is harder to keep the weight off, these pills are for support, not permanant, but out of anything i ahve taken so far Metabolife Ultra is overall the most effective and easy on the body for your money.
