How many pteros have you been taking? I know the recs can be up to 150 mg, but I've only been taking 1 50mg capsule per day so far.

Dawn, I have only been taking one per day. I would like to remain at this dose, but if I have days of extreme hunger, I may take 2. Hopefully, you have not had any headaches??? I can't hardly wait to see if this is helping other JUDDD budds. I am tired today, so I am not as energetic, but the day started out well energized. It is also 108 today, so that probably isn't helping me feel like doing a whole lot of exercise.

Day 2 I took it yesterday on my DD and it didn't seem to work at all? I felt hungry all day. I normally don't eat on my DD until dinner but I caved around 1pm and ate over on my DD. Funny it seemed to work very well the day before.

No apparent immediate side effects, which is good. Yesterday was a DD. I took one 50 in the morning. I was quite hungry by 3:00. I took another and seemed less hungry in about an hour, but hard to tell anything with one day. I am going to log my results so I can see if there is a pattern that develops. Fingers crossed!!

You know, I may go to taking 2 on DD.
I noticed by around 8:00 pm yesterday, I was feeling a bit of hunger. It wasn't to the danger point, but it was sort of becoming difficult at bed time. I guess it makes sense, since PJ says that it recommends 100 mg to 150 mg per day.

Thanks to all for reporting back! I believe in keeping notes, so that can be used to help others on fasting aids.

Sunday, have you noticed whether it gives you energy?

The second day (Friday), I took 2 (I mentioned it a couple days ago but didn't tell you guys what happened later in the day).

I took 1 at 9am, then had a low-cal gelatin protein drink; basically on empty stomach.
Had another at 2pm with smallish meal.
Felt very energetic & talkative & focused in the evening...I wanted to write a book?! for some reason?!!
(unfortunately, this feeling reminds me of the manic episodes I struggled with for many years, and I never know what to do with this energy. If it doesn't last, I will be surrounded by the wreckage of some project that seemed brilliant when I was "high" and will seem unrealistic when I'm "down". )

I ended up not getting hungry until after 10pm. Meant to eat earlier but had to drive kids around. Didn't sleep til 4am (that has been sort of normal for me lately, I'm not blaming the PSB).

Yesterday I took 1 on empty stomach, with gel again.
Was hungry & ate a couple hours later--around noon or 1pm.
Didn't take another one because I had an unusual day planned,
but after breakfast I didn't end up eating til 8pm, and only a small sandwich.
I took 4 kids to a concert and not only did we go to a grocery store & drive through Burger King on the way, but I was surrounded by food vendors & beer all night. Wasn't interested in any of it at all, til we found a late-night pizza place at 1am!!!
I ate 2 pieces of pizza & a salad but didn't get home til after 4am.

I attribute some of this to

I'm undecided about what to do today...Fast 5, Down Day, Leptin Reset?
Thinking of having a BAB (Big --- Breakfast) because it used to help me with insomnia, and I want to get back on a normal schedule. Will be having to get up before 7:30am this week to take DS to cross-country practice.

Jen, I have energy in excess on DD anyway. So, I never notice if I have extra energy to spare. The one thing I am certain of ...is my appetite has dwindled. Not completely gone, but I never have the "emergency hunger" feeling. You know, blueberries are supposed to be amazing for cognition, so that may explain why you felt the desire to write a book.

Oops, I got distracted....
(need more blueberries! stat!!!)

"I attribute some of this to..."
--learning how to wait several hours between meals with the Leptin Reset, Fast 5, etc. Not just psb.

This is day two and an up day Not sure if this is kind of a placebo effect, but I do have more energy today. I normally ride my bike for an hour and did an hour and a half easily today. I went to Target to get a few things and went by the grocery section and normally I want to buy junk like chips and ice cream. I don't normally buy it but today, the desire wasn't there. Wow. Did you hear me say... wow? My last up days have been difficult for me to not go over my calories, but so far I am doing well and not feeling hungry. I hope these are real results and not just in my head!

I took mine around 11am. I felt energetic and not hungry, but I feel this way on most DDs. Certainly no ill effects. I'll see how I sleep tonight and will be intersted to see if it helps with energy tomorrow- An UD and a Monday- usually a set up for being tired late morning and early afternoon.

I'll keep you posted!

I took mine this morning around 8:00 on an empty stomach. I never got hungry. We went to the movies and Keira had popcorn and a soft pretzel, and I was perfectly content with my Sprite Zero. I just made dinner and ended up eating, but wouldn't have needed to. I'm coming in at 87 calories today with grilled vegetables and coffee.

I have done this before without the psb, but it's been several months, so I think the psb has something to do with it. No increased energy though.

Well now that is inspirational to me!

Dawn, for me to ignore popcorn and especially at the movies would be a MIRACLE!

In the essence of full disclosure, I added cherries after I posted this, so I came in at 130 calories for the day.

I think you should always disclose an extra 43 cals.

Interesting thread. Netrition just ordered the Jarrow brand of Pterostilbene. I'll let you know when it's in stock.

I really like it! I had DD energy on an UD Monday!
Only problem... Not hungry on my UD and I already had trouble getting in UD calories. I the energy! Seriously, is this stuff legal and healthy? If it is this is great! I hope I can sleep. Last night I did and minimal sleepwalking from what I can tell.

Keeping my fingers crossed that you will be able to sleep Carly. I am going to save my ptero for DD only. I have a feeling that it will keep me from eating up to my calories on UD. I am thrilled that you have extra energy!

I have not heard of insomnia from this supplement, but if you are worried try it first thing in the morning. I decided to only take it on DD, because I like to have my regular appetite on UD.
