Boost Metabolism - Burn Fat! - 100% Natural
What is MetaSlim Thermogenic Weight Loss Formula?
This is a weight loss product. The ingredients have been formulated together to increase thermogenesis or in other words, stimulate the body to burn fat. This product facilitates weight loss by a herbal stimulated thermogenic principle, meaning an induced oxidation of fat not based on physical activity. Theremogenesis, as the name implies, is the generation of heat. There are different scenarios of thermogenesis that can be described. Obviously, physical exercise causes greater amounts of fuel to be oxidized leading to heat production. Merely consuming a meal causes a slight rise in body temperature and this too is related to greater metabolic activity to process the meal. Another type of thermogenesis is seen with shivering to prevent hypothermia. Weight loss by thermogenesis can be induced by stimulant manipulation of fat oxidation.
In the past, thermogenic weight loss formulas used ephedrine a stimulating chemical, but in many people ephedrine produced unwanted side effects including increased heart rate, high blood pressure and nervousness.
As an alternative, MetaSlim uses Bitter Orange (Citrus autantium), a member of the citrus orange family that supplies synephrine which stimulates fat burning without ephedrine's side effects.
How does it work?
Synephrine is considered a safer thermogenic stimulant of fat reduction. Synephrine occurs in virtually all citrus products. Citrus aurantium and other citrus species have long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
MetaSlim also contains caffeine, from Yerba mate and green tea extract, equivalent to less than one quarter cup of coffee per serving. Caffeine amplifies the thermogenic effects of synephrine. Yerba mate and green tea extracts were chosen to provide caffeine because they have been shown to facilitate weight reduction and are also valued as herbal antioxidants. People who are overweight experience greater oxidative damage, resulting in increased risk for health conditions like heart health issues, immunity issues, and diabetes.
Several clinical studies have shown that increasing the intake of cayenne pepper (Capsicum frutescens) increases thermogenesis, burning fat for energy. Similar results have been noted with ginger.

|hi i am 5 foot 3 inches and a mom of 7 months. im 110 lbs always have been really slim but i started taking the product because of my belly. since the pregnancy my belly is down but soo much loose skin. will this take off my belly skin?|
|ZooScape Moderator - June 1, 2006, 12:30||#10000690|
|MetaSlim Weight Reduction Formula is formulated to increase thermogenesis ( ie: stimulate the body to burn fat). This product works by inducing fat oxidation which is usually based on physical activity. It uses synephrine instead of ephedrine to stimulate fat burning with fewer side effects.|
With this being said and taking into consideration your recent pregnancy I would say that the loose skin you are referring to is not fat, rather excess skin as you have described. In order to get this skin back into the shape it was before your pregnancy requires a healthy, balanced diet and exercise. MetaSlim would work if this was excess fat, however, as it is loose skin you will need to strengthen and tone that area with cardiovascular exercise and toning exercises, such as sit-ups and crunches.

|i want to know if drinking alchol or beer will interfer with the pill? Will you still be able to lose weight?|
|ZooScape Moderator - June 14, 2006, 08:35||#10001454|
|A large part of any weight loss program is to maintain a healthy, balanced diet and have a regular exercise schedule. While alcohol consumption will not cause an adverse reaction when taking MetaSlim it will take longer for your results to develop. This is due to the high fat and calorie content found in alcohol and especially the fat content that is contained in beer. If you were to have a small glass of wine with your dinner each night it would not make that much of a difference, however, if you were to suggest having two or more beers each night then it will certainly hinder the timeframe in which it will take you to reach your weight loss goals.|
According to conventional wisdom, the infamous 'beer belly' is caused by excess alcohol calories being stored as fat. Yet, less than five percent of the alcohol calories you drink are turned into fat. Rather, the main effect of alcohol is to reduce the amount of fat your body burns for energy.
Some evidence for this comes from research carried in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Eight men were given two drinks of vodka and sugar-free lemonade separated by 30 minutes. Each drink contained just under 90 calories. Fat metabolism was measured before and after consumption of the drink. For several hours after drinking the vodka, whole body lipid oxidation (a measure of how much fat your body is burning) dropped by a massive 73%.
Rather than getting stored as fat, the main fate of alcohol is conversion into a substance called acetate. In fact, blood levels of acetate after drinking the vodka were 2.5 times higher than normal. And it appears this sharp rise in acetate puts the brakes on fat loss.
A car engine typically uses only one source of fuel. Your body, on the other hand, draws from a number of different energy sources, such as carbohydrate, fat, and protein. To a certain extent, the source of fuel your body uses is dictated by its availability.
In other words, your body tends to use whatever you feed it. Consequently, when acetate levels rise, your body simply burns more acetate, and less fat. In essence, acetate pushes fat to the back of the queue.

|Hi, I just got the pills (april 4). I got a kit (1-neutralizer & fat blocker and the weight reduction formula). I want to take bouth at the same time, but I don't know how to take them (little confusing). Can you help me out?|

|The two different products that are included in the MetaSlim Kit both have different directions for use and are designed to compliment one another throughout your weight loss process. With MetaSlim Weight Reduction Formula, you should take 1 to 2 tablets in the morning as directed by a physician. And with MetaSlim Carb Neutralizer and Fat Blocker, you should take 1 capsule, 30 minutes before meals or as directed by a physician.|

TOP Weight Reduction EVER
I lost 10 lbs in two weeks. I'm losing it at a great pace. I have lots of energy and I LOVE META SLIM!!!!! Thank You!!!!!!!!
-- July 4, 2003
Since I've started taking these I have lost a total of 81 lbs. I have so much energy, my skin has cleared up so much and is much healthier looking as well. I will continue taking them. Excellent product, the best I have tried so far. It curbs my appetite. I eat just smaller amounts now and I am not following any weight loss program, just cutting down on cravings! I was 350lbs and now I am 269lbs, I feel healthy and definately motivated to keep going!!
-- July 5, 2003
this is a fantastic product,if you read the box,its all natural ingredients.who could ask for more,i was planning a trip,where i needed to wear a bathing suit.i had 3 weeks to get in shape,and i had gained 20 pnds,so i tried this,and hey!!,,i went down to my goal weight,of 115 pnds,for i am only 5"1.an small framed,so i can fit into my stylish clothes again.i feel wonderful at 30,the greatest thing is,,i didnt have to even change my diet!! or do an overbearing workout!!thank you,,META SLIM!!
-- September 19, 2003
Also Recommended: the only thing i recommend is,,drink your water! help flush out your toxins.
I started using this product with mixed feelings, I have been overweight for a long time and was not sure if this was going to work. I have been taking the product for 1 and a half months now and it really seems to be working. I've lost a total of almost 20 pounds. I still have a ways to go, but thats a great start!
I can't say if the product will work for everyone, but it's working for me. If your going to continue to eat all the bad foods that are making you over weight but figure taking the pills will fix that, they won't! You have to do your part in eating more healthy and exercising.
So far so good for me:-)
-- April 11, 2004
This was not at all what I expected - absolutely no weight loss at all. Also, there were not any directions or advice with this packaging. Will not buy again.
-- July 5, 2003
I have only just started this, so I am anxious to see what will happen. I am encouraged by other reviews. I have not had any negative side effects thus far, and I have way more energy. Hopefully it will help!
-- July 28, 2003
I am hoping so
I am hoping this works..I just started it!
-- August 6, 2003
Just started, but am having strong bowel movements - is this part of the program??
Does it continue as long as I am taking the product? or will my stomach settle down to the product? Any advice out there?
-- August 10, 2003
Well I just started taking the pill and my goodness they could have made those things a little smaller. I have to drink 2 glasses of water to get it down but with just 3 pills I've lost 2 pounds so I'm pleased so far.
-- August 10, 2003
Just starting, looking forward to see how it turns out, i will keep you posted
-- August 16, 2003
This is the second time in three months that I try this product. The first time it help me loose 10 lbs, hopefully it will do the same the second time around. Beleiving is everything.....
-- August 24, 2003
I have just started and hope it will be worth it, but asolutely agree: they could have write some more instructions on use and side effects especially for the kit that contains Metaslim Weight Reduction Formula and Carb Nutralizer. If anybody buys it, beware, Card Nutralizer contains 90 pills BUT ONLY 250 ml each and you need 1000 ml at a time.
-- August 25, 2003
I lost a pound and a half the first day. I'm so excited and will continue using Meta Slim until I reach my goal weight. I feel great and full of energy!
-- August 27, 2003
I just started Metaslim after reading and hearing a lot about it, so i am hoping it would work with me, and i'll keep you updated as well ;)

Hopefully that this product works as well as the reviews. I have tried it for one week and lost 3 lbs.
-- September 6, 2003
I started metaslim 2 weeks ago, and I've lost 10lbs already! I have more energy, and less cravings. I also seem to get full much easier.
-- September 14, 2003
for those of you who have lost weight from taking this supplement, i am curious to know if you changed your eating habits or have increased your exercise regimen at all. also, i am curious to know what your weight was to begin with. i have just started on this supplement for the first time and i am curious about the effects it has.
-- September 18, 2003
Don't really know if it works....
When I started, I was 174 lbs. I am still at a 174 lbs and that was over a month ago. My sister-in-law came from Germany and so we were in an eating binge considering that my wife too was on vacation. Let's see what happens.... I sort of lost weight after 3 days on it about 2 lbs and gained it back while we went up to Ottawa. I am buying a second bottle to see if it really works now that my sister-in-law is back to where she belongs! (Her hubby is a hulk of man--very much like Pavarotti!)

Also Recommended: I think if there is a product out there that is like a slimming tea, without the extreme laxativic effect that you can take before bedtime and will make you deficate the following morning, it will be a great compliment to have in cleaning up the colon. This should be done once or twice a week just to keep the digestive all clean.
this is my second day..i just hope that i loose some pounds by the end of this week.
-- September 23, 2003
Also Recommended: drink water as much as u can and dont skip meals
The Big DAy
It is Sep 7 03 I just started today. I also had a baby and have extra pounds on I gained 40p. So I am a 160 and I would like to get down to 135 again. I am getting married on Dec 29 03. I will let you know what happens. I'm not going to sit around all day I will be doing a bit of running and some weight tranning So I want to give this a good try. I hope if you are going on the pill Just get up and go for a walk or something.
-- October 8, 2003
Also Recommended: lots of water and do some walking just to give yourself a boost. Please don't sit around and hope for the best. I hope you all the best.
Hoping for the best
I am not really using this product to lose weight, I am using it to enhance my abs. I just need to get rid of the top layer of flab. I have been using metaslim I and II for the past 5 days and I am just starting to notice a bit of a difference. I am hoping to shed the excess fat over the next month or so using this product. Not sure if I lost any weight, I really have no desire to weigh myself.

UMM ITS KINDA WORKING!
I think its been working I started it a month ago, i've lost about 10 lbs, I thought it would work faster but it doesn't really matter I'm losing it anyways!!! I think one problem was there was no directions to take it with water in the morning...I was taking it with Soy Milk, so if anyone knows if that's whats been keeping me from losing it faster then let me know!!!

So far not so good
It's been approx 8 days that I've been taking Meta Slim. I have lost a total of 1 lb I have also started drinking approx 8 oz glasses of water a day, exercising and eating well. So I really don't know what I'm doing wrong or if Meta Slim really helps. I know it's only been a week and not to expect miracles. But I thought I should have lost a couple of more pounds then what I have so far. The pills are so big and I choke when I take 2 every morning. But you do what you have to. So I hate to continue taking them if they really don't do anything. My energy is the same. Am I doing something wrong or am I expecting too much too soon?
-- October 15, 2003
I took pills for almost a month and noticed no change, but had upset stomach for much of the time and absolutely no weight loss. It also triggered hot flashes at that time which menopausal women don't appreciate! Two months later I have started again taking 2 pills a day and no upset stomach this time. There should be more information in the package. I will let you know if I notice a change. I think it is good to drink lots of water...is it necessary to drink more on these pills...this is the sort of information that would be valuable on the package.
-- October 18, 2003
Will definitely try today but kinda skeptical...
I'm planning on trying to the product today, hopefully it will help me lose the weight I gained from using birth control pills. I'm just wondering if it's safe to use this while I'm on the pill as well, or if it will work at all.

Started 5 days ago
I started taking both Meta Slim I and II five days ago. So far I feel good. I have been able to eat less, because I am not as hungry anymore. I am afraid to weigh myself in case I haven't lost much weight. I don't want to lose my motivation. I do think that I have lost weight around my waist. I plan to weigh and measure myself in two days, and once a week. I really hope this works!!!

Also Recommended: Try to follow a calorie reduced, balanced diet while your cravings have been subsided.
well is been 3 week im the one that had the baby and i been running a couple of times a week i have lost no weight I am eating good but i have gone down in pant size. so for the ones who have been drinking water the first couple of days is water gain, but that will help you flush your toxins out of your body and you will start to loose give it a couple of weeks then you will see big results after. I hope all is working out for everyone hang in there and have will power.
-- October 31, 2003
Also Recommended: bake dont fry ;) keep up with the water and walking.
I just started takin Metaslim, and yesterday i took my first one and in the afternoon i suddenly got uncontrollable bowl movements, it was not too pleasant, should that mean that i do not have the body type for metaslim, or that i should be taking two instead of one, or maybe drink water or eat when i take it ... i am clueless!!! please a word of advice!!
-- October 31, 2003
I've just start using this product yesterday(October 31) so I have not seen any changes yet. However, I did notice at supper time that I was satisifed quickly and had no desire to go back for seconds. I decided to use this product as I have been laid up for about 2 months due to a back injury. I've always been overweight but in good shape physically. I've just started walking daily again and wanted to take something else to give me a boost so I can achieve my goal a little guicker. I've tried the low carb way and felt deprieve, unless you stick with it you gain the weight back pretty quick. I've also tried the extreme exercising and realistically when you have a fulltime job and a family there is no way you can do this every day. I agree with the others that there should have been some information on the packaging. Should I be cutting back on caffine while taking this product? My goal is to loose 30 pounds before summer - I'm crossing my fingers. :) I'll keep you posted.
-- November 1, 2003
Well I am going too start the pill tommorow morning I am hoping it kicks my metabolic rate up a few notches I can use the help. I have lost 47 pounds on my own no pills no nothing but recently I have found that I have reached a plateau where no matter what I do I cant seem too drop anymore weight and I still have 60 pounds too loose so I have decided too try this out I am looking for some kind of result with it because I am begining too become discouraged I walk over 3 miles a day and I also watch what I am eating so I really hope this pill gets my mindset back too where it needs too be I will keep you posted.
-- November 1, 2003
Finally something that works!
WOW!! When I bought it I wasn't sure if it was gonna work or not but I bought it anyway..1 week passed by and i noticed a change and I was happy now it's been 3 weeks and I've noticed a great change....but I was wondering if taking 2 pills every morning is better then taking 1 or should I stick with taking 1 each morning? And also am I supposed to take it b4 breakfast or after or do I not eat breaksfast?
-- November 2, 2003
I'm going to start taking metaslim tomorrow. I am a little curious as to its effects. I only really want to lose 10 lbs or so. So I wonder will it be for me? I am also concerned if it will affect the birth control pill or not. I'm assuming it won't because it's all natural. Does any one know for sure?
-- November 10, 2003
Does the weight stay off?
I have just started taking this product and on reading the reviews am quite excited to see the results. However, no one has mentioned what it is like once you stop taking it? When you reach your goal weight and then you stop the pills does the weight pile on again? Someone please let me know!

I am starting tomorrow. I kinda feel guilty using this kind of product after attending a course on Nutrition. Since, I really want to lose 10 pounds before New Year, this is something I thought I should try.
Losing weight is not very easy. You should have the proper diet and exercises to go with the weight-loss program.
1- Start by reducing your daily caloric intake (try to cut off 500 Calories per day)
2- Don't eat when you are not hungry.
3- Do reduce the amount of Carbs in your diet (To reduce white food such as, potatoes, breads, pasta)
3- Eat foods that are rich in fiber (Your stomach don't digest fiber>>>Go wild on fruits)
ohhhh yeah! Don't expect too much from yourself...Allow to please yourself sometimes with a little pack of M& Ms. :)

I started using metaslim 17 days ago. I am 170lbs, trying to lose 35. It is really hard! I am going to keep up with this until the bottle is empty. I also do a 20 minute pilates workout4to5 times a week,I have 3 small kids that I run after all day and so far no change on the scale, that makes it even harder to stay with it! I'm not sure weather or not to take 1 or 2 pills. I only take 1 right now.

I have been dieting with exercise for 4 weeks with no results. I tried MetaSlim (together with the diet and exercise) and after 4 days lost 4 pounds. It just sounds too good to be true so I'm thinking it might be just water weight???? I haven't noticed any difference in the way my clothes fit. I will keep taking it for now, but I find it hard to believe you can really lose a pound of fat a day!

I got the pills from here and when they arrived i was actually on the Atkins diet. Little did i know that the ingredients to the Metaslim had high amounts of caffeine. Atkins and caffeine do not mix so the pills only slowed my weight reduction. I dont recomend these pills to anyone on the Atkins diet.

I am a mother of 2, struggling to rid of 10 lbs for the last 2 years. so far so good. 1 week, down 3.5 lbs. hopefully this works.

not sure yet
I'v only been on it for a couple of days. I have noticed that my cravings for carbs has decreased. I have hunger pains at night, but have no desire to eat ( if that makes any sence ) Very thirsty though.

I guess this product is not for everyone. I took Meta Slim faithfuly, joined a 'Walking Club', and at the end of the month had put on 12 lb. So needless to say I am not very happy with this product!

How long do you have to take Metaslim,can you stop at anytime?
Are there any sideffects?what are they
How much wieght can you lose?
PLease answer this!

I bought the metaslim pills about a month ago but was unsure if they really work. Thanks to all of your ratings and comments, i've come to the conclusion, the good out weigh the bad so I will start metaslim tom. I do eat somewhat proper and exercise every chance i get. I'll leave my progress here in about 2 weeks so I can also give a fair review.
-- March 1, 2004
This works for me.. maybe its the mindset?
I started the metaslim weight loss kit... taking the 2 thermogenic caplets in the morning with a lot of water.. and a green tea... and also taking the carb/ fat blocker as well.. three times a day. I have been obese for most of my life.. at one point weight almost 400 pounds... I worked very hard to make it all the way down to 220... but I have a goal to be 199 or under by may 8th.. my bday... I started taking this.. with no real hopes that it will be a miracle pill... there is no such thing as a miracle pill.. but with this combined with common sense eating... I dont drink the 12 pack of coke every day anymore.. I dont eat candies or cakes or sugary things.. which my doctor was having a hissy fit over anyway because I have type 2 diabetes... but both my doctor and I have agreed that I can lower my glucophage intake cuz this is actually evening out my sugar levels!!!! It is giving me more energy than I have had in years.. I have dropped a total of 25 inches over all body fat.. and I have dropped another 20 pounds in 3 weeks... so for me.. this is working.. but I also exercise daily.. and I dont binge eat.... and remember... there is not one single pill you can take to MAKE you lose weight.. but this product can aid you in losing weight... if you follow a sensible eating plan and exercise.... Good luck to all of you and remember.. believe in yourself... not a pill and you can do it!!!

First time using legal or natural product for weight
I've tried lots of things to stay ripped over the last 7 years, I may look good but deep down I know I'm only cheating myself when I take illegal products to make myself look like the guy on a fitness magazine. I realize now that it's important not just to look good but to be healthty inside also. This time I'm going to try something natural and less expensive, I've done my homework and believe this product can work. Can't wait to tell the Gym rats I did it with Meta Slim, I bet they don't even know what this product is.
Well, I will keep you posted in 4 weeks.

It is what it is
I purchased this product while quiting smoking to help curb my appetite and to help give my metabolism a bit of a kick, since metabolic rates tend to slow in the first several weeks of quiting tobacco use.
I am pleased to say that in 3 months of non-smoking and using MetaSlim I do not feel the need to eat constantly and I have even managed to reduce my weight from 160 to 150lbs. While maintaining a healthy diet and only moderate exercise.
After reading through some of the reviews however, I'm a bit surprised that there are still people out there who expect to take a pill and have the pounds just wash away.
This product does exactly what it sais it will and thankfully in a less harmfull way than some other products available. It will not however, have you shedding pounds if you continue to sit on the couch waiting for it to work.
I can only assume that others who complained of 'uncontrolled bowl movements' as being a sideaffect, must already be on and are continuing to eat a high fat content diet while taking the supplement. It's only reasonable that if you put fat into your body in large amounts, that it will come out in large amounts when using a product that blocks fat from being processed and stored.
No pill in the world will safely provide the weight loss some people seem to expect without applying some sanity to their food intake.
Do a reality check before taking this or any other diet suplement to avoid disappointment and passing on a bad review of an otherwise good product.
The size of the pills are indeed large but no larger than your average multivitamin. If being able to swallow pills of this size are a problem for you can either crush or cut them first.
As for those who complained of lack of instructions, I can only shake my head and say that if the instructions on the bottle are not clear enough then perhaps you should have another adult present to assist you.
For my money, it was worth every penny.

I just started taking MetaSlim and I find that it an awfully large pill to swallow. And I wish that there was a pamphlet telling me about side effects. Because I do have IBS and these pills should have a precaution sheet about this. I am OK so far but, just hoping that it doesn't flare my IBS up....That could be really bad!! I have heard a lot of good things about this pill and hopefully I will get the results I am looking for. I started it yesterday March 21, 2004. I will keep you updated on my side effect.

Jury Still Out
I'm not sure if this is going to work for weight loss or muscle building. I am 37 and last weight check was 266 pounds. About 2 months ago I started working out for 30 minutes everyday but eating what I wanted. I lost 9lbs in one month. I increased my exercise to about an hour 6 days per week and lost 18.75 inches and 19 pounds total for two months. I then started using MetaSlim. I used to eat small snacks every two hours but now I have no desire to eat. How can I keep my bloodsugar up if I don't want to eat? Since using MetaSlim. I haven't lost any weight (in fact up 5 then down the 5) I feel more tired all the time, and I have to push myself to work out now. I will give it a month to see what happens. Will keep in touch.

This product is a great weight loss booster. I strongly believe that you have to eat well and excersize to achieve any kind of results. However, Metaslim enhances the process and reduces cravings. I have been using it for 3 weeks now and have lost 12 lbs. Eat well, exersize daily equals results and a healthy life.

I have been taking Metaslim for 4 days now and lost 6 pounds with a reduced calorie diet and exercise.

I started this about a week ago, and although I don't make a habit of weighing myself, I feel better. I am also taking the fat and carb blocker before meals.

It is a expensive Cayenne pepper, veery good to move away cats and dog.
this product is null, do not dream in color.
if you have lost weight is just because of you has dinking 8 glasses of water. Because the cayenne pepper make you so thirst. ...not need for pills, just a coffee with pepper will works.

I'm not sure.
I tried it during school hours and all it did was make me have to go to the bathroom really badly. I only lost maybe 3 pounds and I was on it for a while. Concidering trying it again... Lean+ didn't do anything, either.
-- July 18, 2004
Works in a way.
After taking Metaslim for a couple months, here's what I think:
It doesn't work really, but it does work in an indirect way. By taking the monstrous pills everyday, you remind yourself that yes, you are in fact trying to lose weight, and yes, you do need to exercise and eat well to do it. Pretty much every positive side effect that people report can be explained by weight loss. Of course you are going to feel more energized shedding even 5 lbs.; imagine walking around with weights on all the time then taking them off, it feels much lighter, right?
Anyways, thanks Metaslim, for making such an affordable 'reminder' pill, even if it doesn't do much else.
Oh, I went from 230 in January to a lean 185 now, and it's a wonderful feeling. Stick with it. Eat as many vegetables as you can, don't touch Atkins, ever, and load up on the bran and whole grains. Flax oil and Calcium are also great natural supplements to help out.

everybody be patient!
This product is working, and I know this because my cravings for food are way less and I have lots of energy. For all those people out there who were complaining about the bowel movements taking place frequently, that's because your body is excreting all the fat before it gets a chance to absorb it. Be patient, remember everybody's body reacts to the pills differently, some may lose the weight fast while others it may take a bit longer. just keep eating healthy and making sure to exercise atleast 5x a week! p.s. it dosen't matter if you take these pills with water, juice, pop, whatever as long as it gets in your stomach.

First day jitters
well today I started them (the ultimate weight loss), I took two weight reduction pills in the morning then one carb and fat neutrilizers for lunch and supper. I am having some strong bowel movements, but other then that its been good!! I dont feel bloated or anything and I am not hungry at all. I think I have lost about 1 or 1 1/2 lbs today, but that might be from being on the toilet soo much!! My weight this morning was 149lbs and now im about 148 or 147 lbs i need my glasses, my goal wieght is 130lbs and if i can make that then ill try to go to 115lbs. I am looking forward to my end results!! Thanks for listening!!

Just started and believe it is doing it's job...
I have been reading the comments of fellow metaslim users and get motivated when I read some of the postings. However, there are those that disagree that the metaslim product works. Ever since I started using the kit I have actually cut down on eating bread products and foods that contain alot of starch. I drink about 8-10 glasses of water a day and it is really refreshing. I was very bloated before taking the pills so bloated in fact that my stomach was getting hard and I was getting quite miserable. I look down at my stomach now and it seems to be shrinking and it is not hard anymore. I don't mind that I go to the bathroom more often because the toxins in my body are being flushed out...a bonus for me because I feel so much better.
If it is not working for you stop taking it then, if you want to patronize products that cost and arm and leg go ahead. I'm glad there is actually a product that works in weight loss and is much much much more cheaper than those infomercial products.
Why I get angry is because there are alot of people who are actually losing weight using the metaslim kit and the ones who can't just have to try and kill it for those who believe in the product. Maybe they are not following the advice of drinking lots of water, eating healthier, and getting exercise.
I love the product and I am sticking to it until I reach my goal weight of 125 pds. Right now I weigh 220 pds. so wish me luck.

So far so good
This product is working great for me. I started it 3 days go and so far have lost 3 lbs. I would probably have lost more but i havent started a good excersise program yet. I have cut back on portion sizes and junk food. (This is a must for it to work). For the people who were asking, once you meet you target you can't cut this cold turkey. You must slowly wean yourself off this product so that your body doesn't go into 'shock' and also your body might start to store fat because you body will go back to what its metabolism was before you started taking this product. I tell you this because i have used products like these before and this is what you have to do. Also drink lots of waster to flush toxins and restore your body's fluids.

I just started the metaslim 3 days ago i have not lost any weight but i am not ready to give up yet. I have this awful habbit it is called pepsi something i just cant seem to kick. LOL when they come out with that they did not tell you it was addictive. But i am sure once i get rid of the pepsi habbit i will begin to loose weight with these. I weigh 191 pds want to be 110 because i am very short not sure though do you take the fat blocker with every meal, just once in the morning or is it twice a day right now i am taking the reduction pill and the fat blocker only once.

It's nice to hear that this product(s) is working for some. Although, I'm still unsure as I haven't started using it and until I speak with my health care professional, I don't plan to. I'm concerned that too many people have just started it without really checking into the product. I certainly wouldn't put any type of drug manmake/herbal or otherwise into my system without clear instructions and a complete list of side effects.

I started taking Metalsim about two months ago, when I happpened to come accross it at the grocery store while looking for another product...I was skeptical, to say the least but was interested in trying a safe diet pill to see if it could aid in my weight loss. First I would like to say that I already drink at least 2L of water a day, eat healthy, and excersize for one hour, seven days a week. (So it is not just drinking water that aids in the weight loss like other people say on this site)I was a healthy 135lbs, at 5"8, but I was just trying to lose those last few pounds on my hips and waist that I was unhappy with. I dont believe in obsessing over weight, so I don't have an accurate scale- i wasn't interested in seeing a number go down, I wanted to SEE the results for myself. (those numbers can trick you and make you see fat when you only gained some water weight or are full after a meal and havent gained in size) After two months keeping up my excersize and water drinking, I think I have lost about 5-10lbs, gone down a dress size...I no longer have 'skinny pants' that hang in the closet for 'one day...' all my clothes now fit, my tight jeans are loose, and I lost 2inches off my waist. I am extremely happy with this product, although I did notice some fatigue after taking the carb blockers. I enjoy a diet full of carbs, protein and fats in good proportion, but those carb blockers are great when I eat a meal with mostly carbs, like a big sandwich, rice, or low fat fries. The 'big pills' keep me full and satisfied, and add some much needed energy to my early morning shifts at work. I would definately recommend this product! Good luck to everyone...anything is possible with determination and a healthy attitude!

very good laxative
I use meta slim already 2 years. Now, that I am on Atkins, the main result is regularity without any problems. I have never considered it as a sole weight loss ingridient. The results depend on each body methabolism. Not everyone loose weight the same way. Don't expect miracule without additional dieting and rigorous excercising.

Helps to Motivate
After reviewing the ingredients in MetaSlim, it would seem as though there is absolutely no medical basis as to why it would help one to lose weight. However, the placebo effect can often be just as strong.
A year ago, I was 70 lbs. heavier than I am now, and owe my thanks partially to MetaSlim for helping to get my body transformation started. This product was a daily reminder, that yes, in fact I was trying to lose weight. It was a kick in the pants every morning to have to swallow the tremendously sized pills, and that kick helped to bang into my head that what I ate had consequences. Through a combination of daily reminders from Metaslim and exercise, I was able to trim down quite a bit. My BF is now in the low single digits, and I've taken up in a very serious way biking.

It's been four days and the bathroom is my second home!!!
I was recommended this product by my best friend. We both have babies and have put on the few extra pounds bearing a child gives you. I was 112 pounds (5 foot 5) before I got pregnant, and now I am a whopping 134 lbs. Honestly, I was never one to depend on pills to lose weight. I lost 20 lbs. on my own after I gave birth and then it came to a stand still. After speaking to a pharmacist, I decided to give metaslim a shot. It's been 5 days and 3 lbs. later...so hopefully this works for me. Regards to the frequent bathroom use, I can only think that it is normal for the first few weeks while your body adjusts to the nutrients. I will definitely keep you all posted on my progress.

I have been using this product 2 weeks. I have lost 5 pounds. I am not even exercising that much. Just eating my 5 - 6 small meals a day. I only drink water when I'm thirsty. I feel more energetic for sure. The stomach upset went away after the first 4 days. I will agree I looked for more instructions when I opened the package, but decided it wasn't much different than taking a vitamin so I just looked up the ingredients to see what they do. The weight reduction formula pill is large so I just chew a piece of bread or something and swallow it with that. Helps alot. So far I am getting the results I hoped for.

I bought the weight control and fat blocker pills. the fat blocker ones are easy to get down but the other ones aren't easy at all. I had to crush them up into my protein shake and it gave it an awful taste. I'm going to try to stick with it though, eat healthy and get lots of exersize. I found I got a little warm physically a few hours after taking the weight control pill. I assume this is normal because of the way it says the pill should work. The pill also seems to curb my appitite for sweets, and just in general. Ill keep you posted. Good luck to everyone just starting this, and keep up the good work to those people who have had success with this product already!!

I have only been taking Meta slim for 5 days, I think that I have slow matablisim, so Meta slim may take a while to start working. So far my bowl movements have increased, I go every day instead of once a week. I am hoping that Meta slim does more then that. I am changing my eating hapits and doing Tae Bo. Wish me luck

This Really Works!
I can't lose weight to save my life. Finally, Something that works with no side effects! I've lost weight and feel better. This product is safe and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to lose 5 pounds or 100 pounds. I am slowly starting an exercise regimen. I don't put a huge emphasis on what I eat or don't eat. Common sense is best - it's not a race. However, seeing some results on the scale really keeps me motivated! Thank-you MetaSlim!!

MetaSlim - Weight Reduction Formula
I have been overweight for many years and have taken Ephedra in the past which worked, however gave the unpleasant side effects. I decided once in for all that I needed to change my lifestyle. Diets in the past have not worked so well for me or took too long to show any results. I needed a boost. I saw METABO SLIM at my local SUPERSTORE and decided to give it a try. I have read alot about herbs and weight loss. I knew that bitter orange was supposed to be similar to Ephedra. I thought that if it didn't work, I didn't pay all that much for it. What a price for a great product! I have been on these pills for a week now and have lost 10 POUNDS! I want to mention that I am a 240 pound female and need to loose alot of weight. I take 2 pills in the morning with a large glass of water and food. When I took them on an empty stomach, it gave me a belly ache. Seems to be working fine with NO SIDE EFFECTS! No jitters and no nervousness. My blood pressure seems to be in check also. I am eating really well with mostly veggies, fruit and protein. Limiting my breads and pastas. Also excersizing 5 days a week for as little as 20 minutes a day. Thought I would share my wonderful experience so far!

I just started this today..
really wondering if it will actaully work?
butttt yeah, could you take more then 2 in the morning for the 'MetaSlim - Weight Reduction Formula' do tell!:p
-- May 16, 2005
is it ok if you take the Weight Reduction Formula not in the moring
like around 3pm? [Editor: Yes, that is fine. It is more important that you respect the daily dosage.]
-- May 17, 2005
I started using meta slim 2 weeks ago. So far i have lost 6lbs. It really works for me, it may not work for everyone. It curbs my appetite i actually have to make myself eat sometimes. There is only one draw back when i take the huge horse pills in the morning it makes me nauseous, i feel sick for maybe about 10-15 minutes and then it passes. Other than that i do watch what i eat and i also ride my eliptical runner and recumbent bike for an hour each day so that helps out as well.

Have been using mataslim for 14 days and no weight loss yet though I have been walking a lot. Not much of bowel movement. I take 1 tablet in the morning, 1 carb neutraliser with each meal. What is wrong?

So far so good....
Date: June 1, 2005
Current Weight: 210
Goal Weight: 160
I previously tried this product and I believe that this product worked really well for about a month...I was losing weight rapidly, and it even made my hair grow! It is unusual to hear about strong bowel movements for I never had any. But after about a month I noticed i wasn't losing any more weight...not sure why. So i quit it. I also found that i had discomforting chest pains after using the Carb Neutralizer.
I am trying the Weight Reduction Formula again for the second time but without the carb neutralizer and will try to add a Pilates workout to my everyday routine...
I'll keep you posted in about a month.

meta slim - only our wallet gets thinner
Waste of money - no benefits (weight loss) -followed directions/instructions!
-- June 2, 2005
I ve just started and its my first experience.I hope it works for me.
-- June 14, 2005
Keeping fingers crossed
I gave it three stars only because I have just started this product and the price was right a long with most reviews. I have gained 21lbs in the past 6 months due to lack of exercise. I will do some light cardio while taking this product and will touch base one month from today (July 16,05)
The one thing I did not like however was no information whatsoever. All it stated was to take one to 2 tablets. I like to read and know everything before I start taking pills. The positive, if one has access to a computer this was not hard to find and there was helpful info on this site about this product.
So here is to high hopes and crossed fingers. Will see you in a month!

Current Weight: 210 lbs
So here i am, back again after almost 2 months on the thing and I am still at the weight that I started out at. I lost ten pounds the first two weeks but, like i said the last time, i don't know what happened. It's like it just didn't agree with me after that. I tried all sorts of ways of taking it...I tried taking it in the morning before food, i tried taking it after food, with food, everything and yet again this product has failed me.
-- July 22, 2005
This stuff works.
Just shy of 40 pounds in 10 months. That a U.S. size 22 pants down to a size 14 and saying 'See Ya!' to the plus size section for good! I had to buy all new clothes from jackets to underwear... nothing fits now that I could wear last year.
This stuff works. It is not a fast fix, but over time it does wonders. Taking more then is recommended can cause nervous agitation - as it does have a lot of caffiene in it. One pill a day seems to work just fine for me. That -
combined with a modest increase in my amount of activity on a daily basis and reducing my overall calorie intake has given me a body I haven't seen in 10 years.

Carb neutralizer and fat blocker
I have been fighting a weight problem since I was 22. I am now 66. Every diet and pill ever heard of or created has been tested and tried by me. I have never had the sucess I have had with Meta Slim. To me it is a miracle. Not only have I lost 67 lbs. in the last nine months, but my need for insulin for my diabetes has gone from 76 units per day to 5 units per day!!! My Dr. is astounded too. I am continuing to take it and hope to loose another 50-60 mlbs. I am now able to do things I couldn't even dream of doing two years ago, and I had the greatest time of my life at Disneyland, going on every ride, many over and over again. Since my body is racked with osteoarthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, high blood pressue, heart failure, and nuerofibromatosis my sudden ability to loose weight and feel really energetic again is a miracle. Thank you for a new lease on an old life.

GOOD TRY IT
I AM A MOTHER I AM STARTING META SLIM I LOST 10 KG AT 20 DAYS WITH A LITTLE DIET BUT THE META SLIM FINISHED I AM TRYING TO BUY IT FROM ANY CITY BECAUSE I AM FROM EGYPT
-- August 30, 2005
I started this product 3 days ago. I've read some reviews and have felt the bowl thing, but it isn't as stong today as it was the first day. I just am very gassy is all. I have decided to ride my bike to work instead of take the bus, and I've started back into ice hockey which started early this week. Is this enough excersize? I work in an office and I don't get much opportunity to do some heavy lifting or get my heart pumping through the week. I walk a lot and hope that I am doing enough excersize to make a difference. I wish there were a message board or something that I can talk with others about this product and hear what is going on for them as well. This could motivate me to do as much as I can. Anyways, this review is long enough I guess. [Ed. We are working on a message board for individual products. For now, you can continue to use this review board as a messaging board.

Ive been taking these for a total of 10 months now, and I love them, I went from being almost 145 (Im 5'2) to being 105! and I feel great! and keeping the weight off without any strenuous exercise or crash dieting!
-- September 28, 2005
So Far, So good
So far since Sunday, today is now Tuesday, I have dropped almost 9 lbs. I think I will keep on using this product. Hopefully it will take me to my weightloss goal. Only 135 more pounds to go!!
-- October 19, 2005
It is great
I have been taking meta slim for 6 weeks and i have lost a total of 14 pounds so far and i am still loosing. It has changed my life .

I just bought my fisrt bottle today. Ive been excersing and eating way better for the last three or so months but i have also quit smoking and went off my birth control and instead of losing wieght i have gained 20. I really am hopefull that this will help...As for the other entries of people having bowel problems ..if you are overwieght it is most likely you have things in your body it dosn't need and how else is your body supposed to get rid of it? sweating is not the only way! Good Luck!
-- November 7, 2005
Well ive been taking this stuff for allmost two weeks and ive lost ten pounds allready! I have no side affects at all excpet it makes me thirsty and i drink way more water now which is a good thing! I am still trying to get to the gym as often as i can and i keep pretty active at work. for me these are working and im happy. To everyone else don't forget to keep excersing you can never do it just by taking a pill! it sometimes is just a little push to help you in the right direction!

This is not a good porduct don't use it
Metabolism booster products are the wrost thing to use. You might even get a heartattack, natural metabolism boosters are just like others. Most pills can be narutal and still have many side effects.
Its your body. Take care of it with the right product.
-- December 21, 2005
This product is amazing. I have lost a total of 60 pounds without even trying. now that Im back in the 250ish range I feel like I can do things like swimming at the pool with more confidence. also the product is affordable and comes with an clear instructions on usage and what to expect from the product.
-- December 29, 2005
Hope it Works
Well I started about 3 hours ago on January 2 2006. Hopefully it works, I have read the reviews and seem like its been about 50-50. The only thing so far even after eating, I have felt a little dizzy. I am going to keep going with this. Will keep everyone posted. I am about 20 pounds over weight and hoping to loose that if not more.
-- January 2, 2006
I just started today with my fingers crossed/..
-- January 13, 2006
I just started this product today and I was a little scared..I don't know if there are any side-effects (like weight GAIN instead of loss, etc). Does anyone know?
Good luck to all.
-- February 2, 2006
Started 2 days ago
I have just started. I choose to insted of weighing myself I will Measure my lines insted. I drink 3ltrs of Water a day, and I take 2 of the weigh reduction formula and 3 of the carb fat blocker things one 30mins before each meal. I am not sure how its working so far. All I can say is that spending the money and taking the pills each morning is a great reminder that if you don't try to at least work out and excersise that, really buying the pills would be a waste of money. I will keep you posted on my weight loss. Rely on your ability to excersise and stay motivated...then if the pill works you might see better results.
Good luck everyone!

I have just started using metaslim two days ago, I'm gonna see how it works. I just want to lose around 10 pounds. Plus I have been eating healthy for the last 3-4 months and have a calorie intake of about 1000-1200 calories a day. I eat 4-5 small meals or snacks a day, and have been eating cereal every morning! I also work out 6 times a week, doing at home pilates and cardio. I hope this work, I will let u guys know!!
-- February 10, 2006
I have no reason to believe this won't work but at the same time I am quite skeptical. I just started yesterday and am anxious for the next couple weeks. I should be around 135-140 pounds with my height and body shape but lately I jumped to 155. I do regular cardio workouts and my eating habit isn't hopeless so if meta slim does really work I should get great results and will post my result in a couple weeks.
-- March 1, 2006
iv just started but im haveing alot of bowl movements...will this go away?
-- March 2, 2006
I have tried meta slim before about 2 years ago and it helped me to lose 30 lbs but that was also with diet and exercise. I have a few answers to some peoples questions. I am not a doctor but some of this is just knowledge that i have attained. Someone asked about bowel movements and the only thing i can think is the caffeine because caffeine is a laxative. There is not a high amount of it but it is still there. A lady also said this product did everything they werent supposed to do(increased h/r nervousness ect) She is starving herself on a japanese diet. When the body is going into a state of starvation it will get paranooid and nervous and nervousness causes an increased h/r eat some damn food andyou wont have this problem i guarantee. Someone asked if the weight stays off?? Its not a miracle drug if you sit on your ass and eat twinkies and stop working can you keep weight off??? NO but if you stop taking them and keep a healthy lifestyle then yes the weight will stay off. I ate twinkies and stopped working out i gained 40 lbs after i stopped. I think that you need to be patient and not be waiting for a miracle. If you want results take the pills eat healthy and get off your ass. I am taking them again and have been for two weeks i have lost nothing yet but last time i didnt notice a change until months later.
-- March 4, 2006
I just started Metaslim this morning. I feel more energized and less hungry. I will have to see if I get the sugar craving at 3 pm. I agree with many others that have already written in that you need to eat a healthy, sensible diet plus exercise daily. If you continue to eat a high calorie diet and don't excercise these pills will not work. It is only common sense. Water is also key. Water gets into the fat cells and breaks them down. Water is also very good for the skin...which, in turn, keeps you looking young. My bottle came with clear instructions on when and how much to take. There was also an information sheet inside the box. Yes the pills are a somewhat large but easy to cut in half. Not sure how the one person gained 12 lbs. while taking these pills, eating a healthy diet and excercising. Either you have a health problem which you should get checked out or you are providing false information. If you are determined to loose wieght and are committed to a healthy diet, excercise and taking these pills, you will loose the weight.
Good luck to all of you!

It definitely helps.
For months I took MetaSlim's Weight Reduction Formula. However, I also altered my diet and physical activity. I lost the weight above and beyond what I had hoped for (my original expectation was very low because I didn't believe I could do it). After a while I thought "I don't need this pill," and so I stopped it, cold turkey. Bad idea. I put back on a lot of weight. NOT because the of the metabolism the pill gave me decreased rapidly, but because my cravings came back and I turned into a binge-monster (which was my initial problem in the first place, hence the weight, so don't let this worry you ladies and gentlemen).
In the meantime I tried a different weight loss product, "NV", with abhorrent results. I gained a lot of weight and didn't physically feel any better. Warning to anyone interested in trying it!
Needless to say, after one month I have nearly gained back all of the weight despite trying to control my binges and try excersizing steadily, on top of taking the NV product. Still, nothing. I bought MetaSlim again tonight and I've got my fingers crossed. It's a wonderful product and I like the organic factor, too. Wish me luck as I wish everyone the best -- the tablets help but determination is key!
-- August 25, 2006
I didn't observe a difference in weight loss but I haven't finished the product either. One thing for sure, it didn't curb my appetite.
-- March 23, 2006
there seems to be a lot of concerns as i read over the comments ,but where are all this questions answered.its very important to know why our stomach gets upset or we have bowel movements and do we need to drink a lot of water. i did hve trouble with upset stomach myself
-- January 14, 2004
I'm very bloated and constipated
I just started the MetaSlim tablets this morning; I took two and I have had two of the No Nonsense Diet Shakes today also. I am very bloated and constipated at this point; I sure hope this changes soon. I hope/need to lose 30 lbs. I'm not hungry or week as I usually am with diets. I have been drinking a lot of water and green tea. I'll get back with you and let you know. I'm waiting for the crazy bowel movements to start, like others have reported. That would be better than this.
-- January 3, 2007
It was one moth before my prom and i went to try on my dress for my boyfriend when i realized after a month and a half i couldnt zip up the dress. i bought a bottle of these and started doing light tae-bo in the morning. By the time prom came around i had lost the weight and more. it fit better than when i had it altered. i love this product.
-- February 26, 2007
Just started taking meta slim -wrf, noticed a decrease in appetite. I weigh 214lbs. At the end of the week I will weigh myself. I have been drinking water and have cut out snacking alltogether and only eat 3 meals a day. Haven't changed the way I cook yet. Have started walking also. As with anything, you have to want it bad enough and have alot of willpower on your side. Will let you know how I'm doing.
-- March 4, 2007
Also Recommended: Water! (even though it is hard) No snacking, drink water and exercise!
Works very well!
If you are committed to weight loss and make the change to eat less and excersize more, this product can be a GREAT help to speed up the natural body processes to melt fat away in hard to trim areas like your face and hands and mid-section. NO WEIGHT LOSS PLAN Will work in the long term unless you learn to control your portion sizes and increase your activity level. That being said, I've lost 55 pounds (and counting!) with the help of this product. These pills might make you a little jittery and may cause you to not sleep well as they have a high concentration of caffine-like substances in them.
-- April 8, 2007
What happens when you leave it?
I have'nt started taking this product , but i am really curious to know what happens once you leave this product. Does the weight comes back? I know a lot of products like that.. you have to keep on taking them forever. i wud really appreciate if someone who has used this product and left it later cud lemme know about it.
-- January 16, 2004
Do it the right and if not don't expect results
First off I would like to say that this PRODUCT WORKS. But weight lost is a combination of clean eating, drinking LOTS of water and EXERCISING !!!!! If you expect to loose weight without eating well and exercising, you are just kidding yourself: IT WILL NOT HAPPEN AND IF IT DOES, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF OVER TIME.
Clean eating: being aware of your daily calorie intake and having 5 to 6 small meals a day, instead of 3 big meals (keeps your metabolism going trough out the day). Also, better to keep most of your calorie intake before 3pm and eat light in the evening.
Exercising: Ladies please do not be afraid to do weight lifting, it will do wonders for your body and NO you will not look like a man. Weight lifting will gave you nice defined arms, great glutes (nice butt), etc... basically give you a nice tone body. You will look amazing in your close. And cardio will help you loose that body fat and get that number down on that scale. I'm saying this for all the woman out there, please stop focusing on the number you see on the scale, focus on how you body in transforming with exercise and how you feel in your close. The number on the scale is a indicator, that's all. And you most do weight lifting because if you don't you will only be a smaller version of your fat self. If you do everything I just mention (and stop believing all this crap about low fat, fat free, 0 trans fat etc..., basically you need to stick to fruits, vegetables, chicken breast, salmon, etc... and on occasion indulge) you will look amazing and feel fabulous !! Good luck and be patient.

It works for some people not all
I've been taking meta slim for 3 weeks now, i get nausea, dizziness and a feeling of hunger on a regular basis. i don't know how others get terrific results but i am not getting any at all. I'm still the same size i was from the day i started. it will give you an increase heart beat, as in scripted on the package ( side effects).
As i said earlier it works for some people while others it dosen't even do a thing. so i guess it all depends on you and your body. It doesn't work for everyone.
I am really happy for the persons who it helped.
-- March 23, 2008
I've actually stopped using this, but from my pervious experiences with this product, I was quite disappointed. I usually don't have a problem with taking huge pills, but I had such a hard time with taking these things. Maybe it was that strange taste it left in my mouth if I didn't swallow it quickly enough. I think that in itself made me lose my appetite. I also found that if I didn't eat something small before taking the pills, I'd have horrible stomach cramps. I have a pretty strong stomach and I'm quite tolerant of pain, but the stomach cramps that I got from taking these almost made me pass out. As for actual weightloss, I think after taking it for a month, I only lost a few pounds. This was with a reduced caloric intake with no exercise though.
-- May 8, 2008
Love it already!!
I started metaslim about 5 days ago and I love it. I have more energy and am no longer constipated! I have taken all my measurements and will check in a few more days to see how many inches lost, since to me inches are more important than actual loss. I try to build lean muscle. I suffered lowered energy, since i turned 40. Meta slim (bot phases together) gives me energy I wanted so badly,and helps keeps me regular, that alone is a big plus!! I find it works better if I drink alot of water.
The only side effect I seem to have is skin gets ichy like somethings crawling on it. I'm thinking this will pass as my system gets used to the product and I loose more toxins. So far I am very happy and will keep you posted.

I am a new mom to a 5 month old baby. I like most new mothers want all the extra weight to come off. Ive been workng out a lot, and going to cardio kickboxing tice a week. Also like most new moms the weight col never cme off fast enough. Every body constantly thinks im loosig weight witch i think isgreat..unless there just saying it to be nice. But it jus seems that since ive started working out n stuff, im not losing any weight..i jus seem to be toning the skin at the moment. So i got the pill last night after a grat recomendation frm a friend that had n incrdible xperience using it. so m fingers are crossed...my goal is to loose 40-50 lbs by the end f the year. with me luck :)

I'm starting MetaSlim this weekend and I am hoping for the best...because being a student I need to be in shape so I can do all the activites I do...hopfully MetaSlim will work for me.
-- August 4, 2008
Also Recommended: Drink lots of water to keep your system flushed out from any toxins that may enter your body, because when your a singer you need to stay in good health.
Just a starter
I just started Metaslim today. I am a mother of one child and working out from last one year. I did lots of weight training and eventually moved to cardio to lose fat. Though I didn't lose much weight but I lost inches and felt happy. Though I am a house wife nowadays and seems like I am gaining weight again even though I am not a big eater. Anyways I started the product today. So far the only thing I felt was energy that I lacked in all my workouts till today. I am hoping that this extra energy will help me along with the workout and calorie intake. I plan to lose 20-30 pounds in two months. Good luck to everyone!
-- February 2, 2009

I am hoping to lose weight and be healther I cant wait!!
