Consumer Review: I'm A 270 Pound Junk Food Addict And Ripped Fuel Is Helping Me Control My Appetite And Lose Weight.
I started taking Ripped Fuel on the recommendation of my roommate. I am a big guy, 6'3" 270, but a lot of that is fat (about 23% body fat). I had ACL reconstruction surgery about two years ago and haven't been able to get back into shape since the surgery downtime. I've put on about 25lbs (used to be 245) and haven't been able to work out nearly as much, nor with as much vigor as before. I was a soccer player and haven't played since about 2 months before the surgery.
I started slow with two pills in the morning. I have a decreased appetite which is awesome. I cut my calorie intake by about 30-50% (which is great because I am a junk foodaholic these days). I eat modestly twice a day. I get a bit hyper during the morning and early PM which is great for keeping me awake in the morning since I pretty much gave up caffeine. I can feel my heart rate increase, but I have no genetic heart problems and generally low blood pressure so I don't feel like I'm in any danger.
I get a slight low about 3pm each day, but it's not much different than before when I used to eat a huge lunch. I don't really get an energy boost during workouts, but I also don't take the pills right before, which I will probably start doing next week.
I have lost about 5lbs in three weeks on ripped fuel and expect that to increase once I get into better shape, have longer workouts, and clean up my diet. I currently exercise three times a week with a short run and then weights, and I can definitely feel the difference.
I was very worried about taking this because of all the negative press I've seen and my natural aversion to pills, but currently I have no regrets on my decision. Once my weight drops back down to 230-240 and my stamina increases, I will probably stop taking it or switch back to 2 pills in the AM for appetite. I am primarily using it for weight loss.
I recommend it IF your start slowly, do the research, and get regular health checkups.
