My experience with using raspberry ketone for weight loss

The beginning of my journey

I first heard about raspberry ketones from a well known TV doctor. This was just over a year ago when I began my weight loss journey. By the time he wasn’t taking any supplements, he had recently started eating healthier and started walking and working out at the gym a couple of times a week.

Before watching the show, I had never really believed that a supplement could help me lose weight, I was 100% convinced of the “eat healthy and exercise” way to lose weight. After watching the show and looking at the supplement a bit more, I decided to give it a try, it’s inexpensive, and I was willing to try anything (within reason) to lose weight. From research, I knew that raspberry ketone was natural and safe, so I didn’t have much to lose (other than LB).

This decision, accepting supplements in my weight loss combo, has certainly helped me lose 30 pounds or more.

How does it work

Warning: brace yourself, as I may speak a little nerdy in the following paragraphs.

Raspberry Ketone helps you lose weight by initiating lipolysis. Lipolysis is the breakdown of fat; In essence, raspberry ketone moves fat from a stored state, which is common in overweight and obese people, to a state where the body can use it for energy. Fat is a form of energy that is underused in those of us with tons of weight to lose. This ability to initiate the breakdown of fat is a big reason why the supplement is effective.

The regulation of adiponectin, which is related to the above, is another reason why raspberry ketone is useful for weight loss. Adiponectin is a hormone that has been linked to obesity. High levels of adiponectin have been linked to being thin, the reverse is also true, and low levels are linked to obesity. Adiponectin tricks your body into thinking you’re thin, so high levels of adiponectin tell your body “Hey, skinny, start acting like one” and the body responds by shedding fat. Raspberry ketone has been found to increase adiponectin levels, which in turn increases the body’s metabolism and leads to fat loss.

This concludes my description of how raspberry ketone works, if you are not a fan or are a talkative nerd, now you can start reading again!

Profits

Obviously, the number one benefit of raspberry ketone is weight loss and specifically fat loss. Some have also found that it helps suppress your appetite, causing you to eat fewer calories. I have never tried to track this down because I feel like it would be quite complicated. I never realized that I was more full than before starting the supplement. I’d be interested if anyone has actually tested this on themselves.

Side effects

Raspberry ketone is natural, so it is considered safe, there are no known negative side effects. With that said, there are things to look for and people who shouldn’t be taking the supplement. The supplement was created for adults, so it is not recommended that children or teenagers take raspberry ketone. You should also pay attention to the ingredients as sometimes companies will add fillers or binders or additional ingredients. Sometimes these ingredients are not safe or have additional side effects. Personally, I stick with pure raspberry ketone. Also, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take the supplement, you should not take any supplements to lose weight while pregnant or breastfeeding.

My results

Since I also exercise and eat healthy every month, it is difficult to judge how much of my weight loss comes from this supplement, but I know my losses increased after starting the supplement. I’ve also tried it in a couple of different ways, but nothing 100% definitive as to its effectiveness. My goal has always been to lose weight, so I don’t want to affect that goal by doing a proper test and potentially wasting time without taking a supplement that is helping me. For those reasons, my results section on this will be somewhat speculative based on my limited testing and the way I feel about the supplement.

I have been taking raspberry ketone since I found out. For that reason, it is without a doubt the supplement that I have had the most success with. On average, I would say that I could probably attribute 2-3 pounds of my weight loss to the raspberry ketone supplement. On average, I have lost about 6 to 7 pounds per month over the last year, so 2 pounds or more is a good part of that.

Suggested dosage

There are tons of opinions on the recommended dosage, I have always chosen the highest to maximize my losses. In my research I found that the optimal dosage is 500mg twice a day, so that’s what I take. I’ve seen lower dosage suggestions as well, but since there is certainly no harm in taking 1000mg a day and a very small cost difference, I opt for 1000mg a day.

Who should and who shouldn’t take the supplement

I’ve already covered this briefly in an earlier section, but I’ll clarify it below.

Who should not take this supplement

  • Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant
  • If you are under 18 years old
  • If you take a medicine that you think may be affected (talk to your doctor)

Who will benefit from this supplement

  • Anyone who wants to lose weight that is not in one of the above categories

* Of course, for legal reasons, I must say that none of this constitutes medical advice, you should always consult your doctor about any concerns you may have.

My brand options

In this section, I will describe the brands that I currently take, as well as the brands that I took in the past, and point out whether they were successful or not.

I am currently taking a raspberry ketone supplement from Ava Falco. You can find a link to their Amazon.com page in the section below. You can also check their website. http://www.AvaFalco.com
