I'm going to try it this week. Have seen four different friends lose weight with it to varying degrees (from the last ten pounds up to 30 pounds and counting). Not expecting a miracle but maybe a bit of help. I'm highly skeptical.

Wanted to revisit this thread. I took Plexus from Tuesday until yesterday. I've chosen to stop. Even though I just took the Plexus Slim WITHOUT the Accelerator (as did my husband) it had me way too amped up and agitated. It did help with cravings and appetite but I couldn't handle the "wigged out" feeling. I didn't lose any weight but did lose 1.5" in my waist. That could have been from the Plexus or it could be that I didn't eat any carbs while taking it (not intentionally, they simply didn't appeal to me while on PS).

So, yes, I noticed benefit but not enough to outweigh how badly it made me feel. Glad I tried it but like with anything else, if it seems to go to be true....it probably is too good to be true. Obviously, YMMV and I know it has worked for friends without ill effects. That just wasn't my experience.

the health benefits are worth the cost for a lot of people with the testimonials I've read! I do not get the too amped up feeling but have had the benefit of reduced cravings and appetite so far!

I used to sell plexus. And for me it really did work..........but, you have to stay on it for a while to get your end results. And it is costly. If you can afford it, it really does work. One of my friends did 6 months and lost 70 lbs. It helped her get motivated to now get the rest of her weight off.

Without looking at at the label on this one (never heard of it) the are all really the same. It will have a couple forms of caffeine it. If you don't have a tolerance to caffeine they will really make you wired.

A lot of companies use the trick of adding niacin to the proprietary blends. Niacin does nothing for weight loss, but does give you a niacin flush. This gives folks the idea it's a powerful weight loss pill.
