On Dr Oz last week Raspberry
keytones were talked about.- as a way to get rid of belly fat. I am going to give you aiste that talks about it. I would like your opinion. It sound like to me they could be dangerous I am 65 and dont want to have a heart atack. This is a site that has the side feects. Every nutrition store I have called this week said the phone has been ringing of the hook since Dr oz aired this and they all have ordered it. I know ecerise and eating well is what we need to do but the keytones have taken off.

This is just my opinion, but based upon my studies over the years, everyone's body is different. My being overweight may be caused by different reasons than yours or someone elses. One of the things that caught my attention as I was reading over what he claimed, is that the product has to do with the way that fat that is ingested is metabolized. That to me is suggesting that the person who is overweight is consuming too much fat or the WRONG type of fats.So my question is what about the fat that is already stored? Does it have some other sort of ability to go into the existing fat cells (which I would think would require some sort of enzyme too) and then it releases the fat stored? So it may indeed be a product that works for some, but not sure it works for everyone. I personally would want to have more details on the how it is thought to work. For example, what about those whose weight is due to the cortisol hormone being stored?

I went to buy some today, and before they would sell it to me, they had to show me a Product Fact Sheet, that had ALL KINDS OF WARNINGS ON IT ABOUT THIS PRODUCT. will cause Jitters, light head felling, the heart to race, and if you are on any kind of Anti-Depressant, or Anxiety medication, not to use it before consulting with your Dr.
