The number one secret in weight loss is losing more calories than you are consuming. Why? Because when you use more than you are consuming, reserves of fat are incinerated making you leaner and happier

Unfortunately, this is a herculean task. When we start detoxing and keeping a diet plan, we all know how tempting it is to slump and go back to those sweet, fatty foods that we were binging on before decided to stay lean.

I am no exception. I have a sweet tooth for candy and I would fight or even kill for one. So you can as well guess how hard it was when I started losing weight and I would go by a candy shop and feel the lure to buy just one bar. Just one bar!

After sometimes, I realized that I was cheating on myself. There was no way that I was going to lose weight with all those ‘just one bar of candies’ that I was taking. And there was no way that I could ask the guy selling me the candies to stop it. Until I heard that gnc has these appetite suppressants that can help you out by curbing your cravings so that you eat less and still feel full.

I researched about ways to curb cravings. Forbes gave me these tips

 

  • Pinch your nose or earlobes for 10 seconds–arguing that these has been proved as an accupressure practice to restore balance in your energy
  • Use lighter bulbs in the dining room saying that dimmer lights make you feel less guilty of your cravings
  • Eat in blue plates
  • Use vanilla scented candles because scents can divert cravings

 

But guess what Forbes, those tips do not work for me! Maybe they work for other people but with me, they are crap.

And so, I had to look for appetite suppressants.

In this article, I will be looking at these gnc appetite suppressants and how beneficial they can be to you. So, lets get into this.

GNC Total Lean™ Appetrex Control™ 60 Tablets

The marketers of Gnc appetrex control say that it has been proven to reduce cravings and thus calorie intake. Additionally they claim that it increases your metabolism and is therefore a fat burner on its own.

A study was conducted where 30 healthy people were given the supplement pill for one week followed by a placebo for another week. In the one week where they got the appetrex treatment, their food intake decreased by 10% thus showing that appetrex does indeed work.

Ingredients

gnc appetrex control ingredients

In my fact finding mission, I went through the list of the supplement ingredients and researched on whether they would affect appetite.

Gnc appetrex is made with the following ingredients

  •  Di-Calcium Phosphate
  • Cellulose
  • Polyethylene Glycol
  • Vegetable Acetoglycerides
  •  Titanium Dioxide (Natural Mineral Whitener)
  •  Caramel Color
  • Ethyl Vanillin

 

Directions of use

The directions of use on the pack indicate that the 2 capsules should be taken 30 to 60 minutes with water before lunch or dinner. They also warn that it should not be taken before bedtime and this rang an alarm bell in my mind; could it be that the supplement pill have a stimulant?


Amazon and gnc buyer reviews

At Amazon, gnc appetrex control has a 2.6 star rating out of the possible 5. 123 people had reviewed it at the time of writing this post. Owing to the poor rating, I was a little bit disturbed. But wait for this.

At gnc, it had a 4.2 out of 5 star ratings with 174 people having left their reviews. Some of the reviewers on both platforms said that it worked to curb their cravings while others complained that it did not control their appetite but rather gave them a boost of energy in their workout.

I think the only logical reason I would have for this is that we are all different and our bodies behave differently to supplement pills.

Side effects

Personally, I did not get any side effects after using appetrex other than insomnia since contrary to the directions of use, I forgot to take the second pill before dinner and took it when I was going to bed. Other than that, there were no other problems.

I would however not recommend the pill to any pregnant, breastfeeding woman or diabetic person. Why? You never know what could happen if you controlled your appetite. Maybe your blood sugar is going to go so down that you might faint.

Performix™ SST CONTROL

A product from Performix, I was excited to try out this product. However, I was not so pleased after trying it out. Before taking performix sst control, I used to snack throughout the gym session. After taking it, I thought that my cravings would all be gone but I was wrong because other than it boosting my focus, I still found myself fighting the temptation to snack and when I did snack, I felt so nauseatic.

At first, I thought that its effect had not yet kicked in and so went on taking it for a week. But lo, nothing. My cravings were still high up there and everytime I did snack, I would puke and have diarrhea.

Directions of use

Take 2 pills every morning.

Ingredients

Rice Flour, Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Microcrystaliline Cellulose, Ethyl Cellulose, FD&C Red # 40, FD&C Yellow #5

Side effects

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea

Vitalast Brighter day Appetite Control with Mood boost

As the name suggests, the Vitalast Brighter day appetite control not only does curb your cravings but also gives you a great mood to exercise and work out in the gym. Rather than look forlorn for not taking those sweet candies, I was up and about working my abs all the time.
