Many of us know how difficult it is to be on the "heaviest" part of the scale.
We know what it feels like to be subject to negative comments about our physique. Although the trend is towards combating physical complexes, one should not forget the many disadvantages that obesity brings to health.
Hello my name is Manon. I am 28 years old and I am a dietician and nutritionist. As a health professional, I am confronted with several cases of obesity caused, among other things, by a sedentary lifestyle or genetic or hormonal abnormalities.
Being in good shape also affects the general well-being of people. It's more because of this fact that I stress it and not because of physical appearance.
There are a whole host of pills out there these days that claim to be able to give you killer abs. To accomplish such a thing seems like a feat, even in the near future. However, it is absolutely possible to get rid of excess fat by combining the intake of a good slimming supplement with a balanced diet and appropriate physical exercise.
With that in mind, here I am going to review PhenQ, one of the most popular weight loss pills around that has caused a storm in the weight loss supplement industry!
Considered a phenomenal slimming formula since 2015, PhenQ has been considered a hit in several weight loss regimens. The pill is manufactured by the Wolfson Berg Company which is a producer of many renowned health supplements and products.
PhenQ is a dietary supplement that claims to aid in weight loss by increasing the body's energy levels and controlling the production of lipids, which leads to rapid fat burning.
How does PhenQ work?
The mechanisms of how the pill works are not very difficult to understand. It claims to work in 5 major ways to help the body lose weight.
Burn Fat: The thermogenic aspect of the product speeds up the metabolic rate of the body, which in turn increases the body temperature for a while. This has the effect of melting the unsightly fat.
Suppress Appetite: Since the main cause of weight gain is the urge to eat unhealthy food, PhenQ aims to reduce calories drastically by reducing appetite. It helps you eat less without suffering from stomach cramps or upset stomachs.
Boosts Energy: When appetite is reduced, energy levels will drop. But in this case, the drop in energy levels is avoided since the pill boosts the general energy of the body. This results in fat burning and keeping you active throughout the day.
Reduces Fat Production: The pill claims to inhibit the production of new fat by influencing the fat cells in the body.
Improves mood: Usually, if there is loss of appetite and rapid fat burning, the person may be prone to mood swings and may feel feverish, irritable and nervous. The ingredients in this formula help improve mood and provide a sense of well-being that will help motivate your body and mind to lose weight.
a-Lacys Reset: One of the key ingredients in PhenQ is a brand name patented formula that contains alpha lipoic acid and cysteine called A-Lacys Reset. Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant found in vegetables such as spinach, potatoes, and broccoli. As for cysteine, it is known to suppress appetite and decrease the amount of food we eat. This combination makes PhenQ a thermogenic product which helps increase metabolic rates and burn calories faster.
Capsimax: The second of the ingredients in PhenQ is Capsimax, an ingredient found in capsaicinoids extracted from bell pepper or capsicum. It is thermogenic in nature and helps the body to dissolve unwanted fat by inhibiting and eliminating fat deposition. It regulates body weight and fights against the accumulation of fat.
Piperine: Piperine has scientifically been proven to enhance the bioavailability of nutritional and botanical components.
Chromium Picolinate: Chromium is a trace element commonly found in various vegetables, meats and whole grains. It acts on the metabolism and storage of fats, carbohydrates and proteins in the body. Chromium picolinate helps the body convert all consumed sugar and carbohydrates into energy. This, in turn, will boost energy levels and give you the vitality and energy you need during the day.
L-Carnitine Fumarate: This ingredient is found in green vegetables, avocados, and dairy products. L-Carnitine Fumarate helps convert body fat into essential energy and helps the body shed excess fat faster.
Caffeine: As any coffee lover will attest, caffeine helps generate immense energy in the body. It helps you stay focused and alert. What's more, it reduces the urge to overeat and regulates body weight. It is one of the most common ingredients of PhenQ that can be found in several dietary supplements.
Nopal: The last of the ingredients in PhenQ is high in fiber and extracted from the cactus plant, helps the body to control food cravings. Because it contains a lot of dietary fiber, it helps the body to feel full and provides the benefits of fiber. Like caffeine, it also provides high levels of energy to keep you active.
Although most of the ingredients are obtained from all-natural sources, some people may be sensitive or allergic to them. Some known side effects include nausea, headache, dizziness, digestive problems, anxiety, or trouble sleeping. However, it is very unlikely that you will experience any side effects from PhenQ. These are small details that you should be aware of.
As for me, I haven't really suffered from PhenQ side effects. It was more of a small weakening in my body as it got used to the product as well as some changes in my sleep pattern but it only lasted for the very first few days. I did not experience any side effects from PhenQ afterwards.
If you have any doubts before taking PhenQ, you can easily seek the advice of your doctor first, if only to reassure you. But remember that the ingredients in Phenq are 100% natural and safe.
My experience with PhenQ
PhenQ has been one of the products that I have personally tested, without basing myself on any used version or any review of the product. I used it during the period when I had gained weight, that is, during the phase after my operation following a car accident last year.
Within 2 months, I found myself on the verge of being overweight.
It was around this time that I started my research on the different food supplements that seemed to flood the web. There were several caveats that most of these were a scam and more worryingly, that they were more dangerous than anything else.
When I came across several favorable reviews of PhenQ, I noticed how the product affected general public health, especially because of how it worked. The product promises made sense, so I decided to give it a go.
As mentioned in the instructions, I therefore started my cure by taking 2 pills a day: one during breakfast and the second during a very light lunch. I combined this with a diet and basic physiological exercises recommended by my doctor. There was no big change during the first 3 weeks and my appetite was unchanged.
During the fourth week, I started to feel extra energy and since my leg was healing, I started doing short walks in the evening. I reduced my intake of unhealthy foods and carbohydrates. I realized that I could do this easily and I also felt more full without gorging on a ton of fries. After a month and a half, the scale showed one kilogram less. Even though the progress was painfully slow, I continued to take the product and as I got used to the treatment more and more, I felt that it worked more quickly on me. After 4 months, I had lost no less than 3 pounds before giving my opinion on the product.
My energy levels increased tremendously and I felt more motivated and focused on my weight loss goal. It helps you to have a clearer mind from all the lethargy that comes with an inactive lifestyle.
What could be improved?
PhenQ is a premium product which may seem expensive compared to other supplements. However, the quality and efficiency you will gain are well worth it.
Results vary from person to person and you really need to eat a balanced diet and exercise while taking PhenQ. It is therefore difficult to say what results you will get, but PhenQ absolutely has the potential to help you achieve your weight loss goals if you put a little bit of yours into it!
It is also important to note that you should not take PhenQ if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you are on treatment (taking medication), or if you are under 18 years of age.
My conclusions on PhenQ
As a weight loss pill, PhenQ has really worked for me and helped me get rid of that extra fat. Although it took a while to see results, it was ultimately a stimulating experience for me. Patience and Perseverance are the watchwords.
