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 use to take metabolife back when it started in 2000...I was only 18 at that time. It really worked for me, but when i stop taking it for 3 months i gain my ugly pounds again. I had some side effects and stopped for awhile. I tried it again last year in summer of 2007, for 1 month but I had to stop because of my boyfriend. I am willing to try it again this year because it's so hard for me to lose weight and to helped me control my eating habits. I'm a full time med college student, I don't really have that much time. I've tried diet/exercise and it didn't really helped that much cuz I'm always studying. I'm half chinese and spanish, So we eat a lot of rice!!!...

When I learned this product was originally created to help with tiredness from chemotherapy, I started using Metabolife ultra 5 years ago for energy because of anemia. No side effects. Doesn't affect my blood pressure. Weight loss is a benefit but that's not what I take it for.

I found Metabolife to be very good I took a few years back I went from a size 14 to a size 5/6. My personal experience it was very good. I do notice though I did gain my weight back AFTER I changed my eating habbits again and stopped being as active as I was. So essentially due to my very own lifestyle change I gained the weight this is the same as diet and exercise one can not expect to keep the weight off or continue losing if their slowly going back to their old habbits. Overall, I'd say it's one of the very few diet pills I am going to try again. I've recently bought ALLy and I am very disappointed. All it did was allow me to release fats through bowel movement but I saw no overall improvement in weight loss. I am new mother trying to get back into shape. I work out etc. So for the women out there looking for a great diet pill try Metabolife.

I took Metabolife for about 9 months and lost 70 lbs. BUT...I ended up with high blood pressure and as soon as I quit taking this product, I gained back all the weight-plus more, and I was being careful. I now believe that diet and exercise are the only safe and healthy ways to lose weight.

Metabolife tastes disgusting! Like raw fish... It made me want to throw up every time. I had to hold my nose as to not taste it. I lasted 2 days on the pill. No more for me! It's not worth it. It made me feel like crap. Diet and exercise are the way to go.
