Honestly, I think I tried this a few years ago… It might have been something similar. I didn’t notice a big difference. I do remember it kind of making me feel strung out, and maybe a bit shaky though. I know that I didn’t finish taking the bottle. Not sure about the cleanse though, I know that what I had (this was probably 5 years ago, so even if it was the same brand, it was probably composed somewhat differently then) did not have laxatives or anything.

However, since then I’ve actually spent a lot of time learning about diet and exercise and now I would really discourage it. Supplements are not regulated and therefore a lot of them contain things that can not only be not helpful but actually dangerous for your health. Not to mention, that if they are artificially boosting your metabolism, it will slow down that much more when you stop taking them. You’ll end up back tracking and losing all the progress you made. Is it worth it?

Reading your posting history, it looks like you’ve been working out regularly and trying to get healthy for a while now. That’s awesome, lady! 

If it’s an energy boost you need, I would reccomend making sure that you’re getting a lot of protein. If you know that your diet is pretty solid, I would also consider using just a straight caffeine boost about 40 minutes before working out. Caffeine in moderate doses can help you work out harder, and help your body burn more calories. However, its important not to consume too much (I think it’s 200 mg/day or about 2 cups of coffee? Google it) or it can start reducing your bone density – something you obviously don’t want!

If you’re having a hard time with appetite control, and if you feel like you have a lot of weight to lose, you could always investigate Alli. It’s the first FDA approved pill to help with weight loss. However, it does this by blocking your body’s ability to absorb high fat food. Personally, I wouldn’t reccomend this though unless you have a lot of weight to lose and really, REALLY need help (temporarily) while you work to make dietary changes because your body really does need fats. It just needs the avacados/fish/nuts kind rather than the french fries type. 

Hope that helps. Good luck! I would have loved to have an October wedding, I bet yours will be beautiful!

@headoverhighheels:  I can totally relate to losing motivation. I’m not super overweight (my BMI is something like 26), but I would really like to lose about 20 pounds and put on some muscle. However, I’m living in Afghanistan for the past year and so the safe gym in really expensive, we can’t walk anywhere, and our movement is really restricted. Consequently, I have to do workout videos and have a near perfect diet to see any change at all. It’s been really hard on me too because its so much more work here than it was when we were in DC. 

Darling Husband has decided to try Body Revolution with me, and even though its only week one its been a whole lot more fun with someone.

I think you’ll be fine with half a dose if its only two weeks. Also, if you’re a salt person, try to limit it during this time as it can keep extra water on you. Overall, I don’t think it’s ideal, but 14 days isn’t very long. ; )
