Pterostilbene (?sp) - seems to be working!

Hi All - just been back to look at the long thread on this -and I have to report it seems to be stopping my hunger!!! I liberated some of Kissa's stock and bought it back to Oman with me - along with a pharmacy of other stuff! I've been sick since I've been back home (just a boring old, very annoying cold!!) and have to admit to having 'eaten' my way through it. I also haven't really gotten into a routine of taking my tablets yet - but I think I have it sorted now!

Anyway - this morning the alarm went off - and then the power followed! Fortunately I was heading in to the office today - but it did mean that on a planned UD (I always like to re-start on an UD!!) I couldn't have my toast & tea for breakfast. No never mind, I grabbed a diet coke (don't judge), and some Laughing Cow Extra Light Cheese Triangles and off to work I went.

At around 1.30 I ate 2 triangles and realized I wasn't hungry!! So stopped. It's now 4.14 - so as all I've had are 2 triangles, I think we can safely call this a DD!!! Looking forward to some soup tonight!

I'm back!!! (again )

Hey Vicky!

Welcome back! Looks like a sizable portion of the old crowd is rushing back to enjoy the pleasures of ADF.

Your Mom is nicer than I am....no way would you be allowed to liberate my pterostilbene. I consider it and bone broth my staff of life.

Hi Vicki
I'm starting again today with a DD. I never tried the pterostilbene when I did JUDDD before. Sounds like I should look into it this time.

Normally I don't think I would be allowed either, but a friend had just returned from the US with 7 year's supply!

Eating my soup - and I'm no even 1/4 of the way through - and I'm full!

Vicky, you crack me up! It's great to have you back with us! I too love my ptero. It really does make quite a difference in my appetite, and my control in general.

That Ptero does seem to make a big difference. But I think we need the 150 to really make a difference.

Glad it is doing the trick for you Vicky.

Is that a bigger amount than in the current tablets? Of course, I want my appetite tomorrow ...

Mine are 50 mg, and don't make much difference in my hunger. It says take two--one in the morning and one in the evening. I wonder if it would hurt to take two at once?

Can't imagine taking two at once would be a problem...I take my 150 mg. one in the morning. I think it's really helping me. My hunger level is way down from what it used to be!

I hadn't used this last time around because I am miserable at remembering to take pills. But perhaps I will see if I can find some and give it a go for the month of December. Any additional support can't hurt during gorge fest month, right?

It's also got several other herbs, including ginkgo biloba (75 mg) (blueberry fruit extract, and ashwagandha). I think I might try to take two tomorrow.

I forgot to take it! Plus, I didn't bring them with me, so it will be sheer willpower today.

I take my 150 mg at home and I carry a bottle of the 50 mg in my purse just in case I forget. If I remember to take them on my UD's too, I have better results at staying at or below my calories rather than having an UUAD.

Not to mention just taking them every day for all the health benefits besides being an appetite depressant!

That is great that you find the Pterostilbene helps! I think I also feel more energetic when I am taking it. This is the only supplement I remember to take regularly and I think it helps me to take my other vitamins more often.

I have been forgetful lately with my ptero - had been taking it faithfully for 6 months - now forgetting on and off for a month, I see how much it DOES HELP... now to remember to take it again.

Ptero does help suppress my hunger.

BUT, when I take it the danged marionette lines running from my mouth to chin almost go away. And, when I forget to take it for a few days, those lines become much more pronounced. At my age, this is major motivation!

I think in the States it can be bought in store. Not here in the UK.

I got a friend in the States to order it at an amazing price from an on line supplier then brought it to the UK for me.

Any health food type store will have it. I've found it at The Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods, Walmart (vitamin area), and a few other places. I'm pretty sure they're carrying it at Netrition too.

Hey Barb, if yours is shipped from the US, do you get whacked by customs when it crosses the border?

Yes, as always. I ordered today from the online place Cindy got hers from and I used a mail forwarding service to get it to Canada. Lots of extra charges but I ordered a lot of it so hopefully it works out to not be too expensive. They had a three for one deal today so that made me feel better about it.
