I’ve packed on 50 lbs. between my gluten sensitivity issues, the symptoms of which that the docs kept telling me were due to middle age, as well as the plantar fasciitis that had me all but crippled for the past several years.
It is very difficult to avoid gluten-containing foods. Even something that SOUNDS like it should be gluten free often isn’t. For example, IHOP has been advertising the pancake batter in their omelettes that make them even lighter and fluffier. Somebody that just wants some gluten-free food is going to get a big intestinal surprise if they order an omelette! Soy sauce, salad dressing, some vanilla flavorings, soups…well, there are a lot of times that I get accidentally glutened. When I get accidentally glutened, it also affects my feet, which become quite painful. If I have to wait until I get this gluten thing completely right, I may NEVER get to take that weight off!
So, when Dr. Oz recommended raspberry ketone as being an excellent fat burner, I decided to try it out. It’s fairly inexpensive as far as supplements go.
I weighed myself yesterday before I started taking the supplement. I weighed myself tonight after taking them for one day. Heh. Well, I’m five pounds heavier this evening. I believe that it is due to the salty food I ingested during lunch today. Hopefully all the tea that I had tonight (because I was soooooo thirsty) will have that extra salt washed out of my system by tomorrow morning. Day one hasn’t seen any benefit.
I’ve got a month’s worth of pills, so I’ll try to remember to update weekly so you can find out whether my fat has turned into heat and energy and disappeared. Or not.
I know that I’ll have some weight loss soon because I usually carry about 10 lbs. of water in the summer heat that I lose when the weather gets cooler for my outside work.
