Consumer Review: An 18 Year Old Male's Unbiased Report On His First Day Taking Ripped Fuel.
Age: 18 Weight: 155 Height: 6'
Workout routine: 20 min cardio crunches till I'm tired and regular weight training lasting between 1 and 1 1/2 hours.
Anyway, I began taking Ripped Fuel yesterday. I was leery after reading the posts here, but decided to take it slow and pay careful attention. Here is my experience.
6:30am -- 1 Ripped Fuel and 1 multivitamin.
7:00am -- Breakfast, felt full, so only had 2 hard boiled eggs, 1 scrambled egg, and fruit. Also drank two 8oz. glasses of water due to the risk of dehydration. This proved to be somewhat of a mistake, I had to pee every hour on the hour following this. Also did not drink usual coffee.
7:30am -- Felt the typical nausea associated with first dose of Ripped Fuel. However it passed without incident.
8:00 - 11:00am -- Classes, with pee break every hour.
11:15am -- 1 Ripped Fuel. Lunch, ate mostly protein and little carbs from veggies. Drank another 2 glasses of water (I know not very smart) and continued to pee every hour.
12:00pm - 2:30pm -- Studied. I didn't feel jittery or restless, but did notice that my food did satisfy me very long.
2:30pm -- 1 Ripped Fuel. Began warming up for workout.
3:00pm -- Jogged 2 miles.
3:20pm - 5:20pm -- Weights - Whoa! I have never pulled a 2 hour session. It felt really good. Felt extremely hungry and tired when done.
6:00pm -- Ate some peanut butter crackers to calm my appetite.
6:30pm -- Ate barbecue, tried to make it as lean as possible and the only carbs was the bun.
10:45pm -- Drifted off to sleep just like a baby.
I am normally very sensitive to caffeine, however I think I took
my last dose early enough to avoid having it keep me up. Also, the
taxing workout also helped to really wear me out. I pretty much
keep the same routine, and today found that I drank a little less
water, and didn't have the peeing problem. I also couldn't work
out quite as long because the gym closed. The one side effect I
did experience was that my performance suffered in bed. I understand
this to be from the thinning of the blood due to the caffeine, and
it should go away when I stop taking it this weekend.
My suggestion is not to pass judgement on Ripped Fuel unless you try it. Obviously, if you fall under one of the categories on the "Don't Use Ifs" on the back, then just avoid it. But if you are otherwise healthy, and would like an aid in reaching your goal, then by all means take it slow. Don't jump in head first, test it out with small doses, and pay careful attention to what your body is saying. Make sure you either take it with a meal or before you work out. Oh, and also commit ahead of time to the schedule you will be taking it. ONLY TAKE RIPPED FUEL ON DAYS YOU WORKOUT! Personally, I work out 5 days a week and will not be taking it on the weekends.
Also, regarding the guy on another post with the bleeding tonsils. I also experiencee a dry, itchy throat at times, but just made sure I kept drinking water. I don't know if that is the same thing you felt, but I experienced something similar at least. Everyone's body reacts to things a little differently, so don't draw universal conclusions about yours or my experience. I am just sharing my experience in an effort to give an unbiased account of the things you should anticipate. You may or may not experience them, just know that they're possible.
Let me know if any of you all have any questions.
