After much deliberation i’ve decided to do it, I have to admit I’m a little weary, i am a cheapskate by nature so I’m hoping this just blows me away with it’s success.
I intend to have a very extensive log so hopefully you guys can smack me if I do something wrong.
I just ordered everything tonight, intend to start 3/16 so I will update with pictures and measurements sometime before then.
Alright so today is the last day and Easter has been hectic for me as I’m sure it has been for you all that have family that celebrate it.
I weighed this morning: 220. I was disappointed but what can you do.
Rather than go over my log I’ll just give my impressions of the program but I want to give a little preface first.
Biotest has earned a lifelong customer in me, their products are quality products; more impressive than that is the fact that they treated me like a valued customer as opposed to some random guy trying their stuff. I had a small anomaly, not even a problem, with my order and when I called to ask about it they went so far above and beyond what i expected in their solution that I thought the rep was joking at first. My favorite product was probably Surge, the taste is great and it’s something I feel working.
Ok on to the diet itself.
I’ve been struggling with how to describe my results for the people with ADD who will only read success/fail and stop there. I’ve settled on ‘positive experience’ which I still feel is inadequate.
I expected a lot from this program and perhaps my expectations weren’t realistic, and while I acknowledge all that I accomplished on this program I did in fact expect more. My results are on the lower end of the spectrum for this program. That being said, the results were still adequate, It was a solid step towards the goal I am trying to achieve, the stride is simply smaller than expected. The other element that bares mentioning is the cost, I’m not sure my results really justify the cost, that’s just me personally though, several other people on these boards have enjoyed greater success.
As for the process of the diet itself, the initial week was hell with all the mental effects I suffered, if I hadn’t started during spring break where I could basically do whatever I wanted, things would have been twice as hard. After my body acclimated to the HOT-ROX (I assume that was the source of my problems, perhaps erroneously) it was actually pretty easy to follow. What really stood out was the workouts, they were challenging but really fun and fulfilling as well, with the exclusion of the V-Burn, I hated that bitch.
I hope that my log and this post has helped/will help others in deciding whether or not to follow the program. I have tried to be as objective as possible. I probably won’t be using this method again, but I won’t rule it out entirely. Fact of the matter was I still lost 11 lbs and weight loss is certainly something I struggle with in spite of fairly healthy eating.
Thanks to the few people who posted.
