Since health guru, Dr. Oz first mentioned raspberry ketone on his show there has since been a mad dash to get a hold of the proclaimed “miracle fat burner” that millions already claim to have lost copious amounts of weight without so much as setting foot into a gym or putting themselves through another uncomfortable diet. With all the buzz created by this new superfood enzyme extract from red raspberries, there are still a lot of people who aren’t so sure about it, particularly how long it takes to start working.
Generally raspberry ketone, providing you are taking enough of the supplement, should begin to work within 36-48 hours with the full effect usually seen within a week. It should be noted that in order to experience the full effects of the supplement, one needs to make sure that they are taking it twice a day on a regular basis. In fact one of the most common reasons that raspberry ketone doesn’t work for some people is that they simply weren’t taking the supplement on a regular basis. It’s not going to help you lose weight if you keep forgetting to take it.
There may be those who say; “I’ve been taking it for a week and I haven’t lost any weight yet!” My answer would be how much are you eating? If you are consuming an entire pizza every day, then raspberry ketone is not going to help you any time soon. You don’t have to change what you’re eating but you shouldn’t be taking the raspberry ketone as an excuse to eat whatever your heart desires.
The next piece of advice I would offer is are you getting enough fiber? Being constipated can make the scale say that you are heavier than you really are. Make sure you are weighing yourself first thing in the morning, right after using the bathroom and before you drink or eat anything. This will give you the most accurate idea of how much you weigh.
Drink lots of water
It seems that as many times as I say it, people are just not drinking enough water at all. The 8 glasses of 8 oz of water is the absolute minimum you should be drinking if you don’t want to die, but the optimal amount of water you should be drinking each day is 1 ounce per pound of body weight. If you weigh 160 pounds, you should be drinking 160 ounces of water. Not soda, not Gatorade, not coffee, pure water. The reason for this is that water metabolizes fat and flushes toxins from your body. It also helps move waste through your colon, keeps you cool, keeps your heart rate regulated and keeps your skin healthy and young looking. Not drinking enough water can make you have less energy, and retain fat. In fact one of the reasons people get bloated is not that they’re drinking too much water but that they’re drinking too much.
Okay now that you’re an expert on raspberry ketone, which one should you take?
I faced this dilemma a while back since I too didn’t know which raspberry ketone supplement to use either, that was until a friend turned me on to Raspberry Ketone Burn, one of the most highly potent, highest quality raspberry ketone supplements available. What surprised me the most was how effective it was and how fast it began working for me, (as well as how much weight I was able to lose). That is the one product I would recommend to anyone.
