Alright, I need to give full disclosure before I write this review because there were a number of reasons why I chose to go with this particular product over others.
First off, I was coming off of a cleanse and had just quit smoking, so, I wanted something that could control cravings and wasn't too stimmed out. The reasons being: a.) I would be overly sensitive to stims because I pretty much eliminated all stims from my diet during my cleanse, only 2 cups of green tea a day, which is tremendous for me but terribly difficult, b.) heavy doses of stims tend to make me a little on edge, which would make quitting smoking more difficult than it had to be and, finally, c.) Gaspari advertises the overall feeling of well being, which considering I was quitting smoking would only help matters.
The gradual build-up of stims was good, you start off taking one pill and when you feel like it isn't doing the job you take two. I probably went to two pills almost 2-3 weeks into my bottle. To be completely honest, I never felt Crack
ed out from the stims, just focused and energetic.
One of my favorite effects of Spirodex
was the overall feeling of wellness. I mean, I really felt good, kind of hard to explain fully other than, well, not just good, but great, so this is no bull-poo advertising on Gaspari's part, at least in my experience.
As far as my appetite went, it has never been so easy to eat clean in my life. It did not kill my appetite, but gave me control like nothing else. I was on a clean bulk and did not have any problems eating the food that I needed to eat, my appetite was there, but I did not crave any kind of junk at all (I can be an ice cream junkie), it was ridiculously easy to say the least.
Results, well, I wasn't on a cut at all, but a clean bulk, so it is hard to get a real gauge on this and I also stacked it with quite a few weight management products (that is why I gave it an 8 for effectiveness as oppossed to a 9). However, in the two months of the clean bulk, a month and a half of which I was using Spirodex
, I gained almost 10 pounds and none of it was in my waistline. In fact, my abs and obliques are just beginning to come up nicely, which is phenomonal, makes everything worth it!
Value, I got it on discountsupplements.com for about $28, so I think it was a pretty good value.
To be 100% with you guys, I do not think that the results were due strictly to Spirodex
. I had just come off of a cleanse, so, my metabolism was going full steam ahead. I had also been using green tea, CLA, Fish Oil
and acetyl l-carnitine
as well. Jack3d
for my preworkout
and my own concoction for postworkout also helped I am sure. Most importantly though, I honestly killed myself in the gym, every workout was like my last, which no supplement can replace or do for you. So, I am definitely not trying to sell this as the be all and end all (we all know there is enough of that on this site sometimes), but I definitely liked Spirodex
a lot and will definitely try it again in the future and think it is worth a shot for anyone of you looking to reign in their diet, especially if you are sensitive to stims.
