I didn't know what to expect when I started the Metabolic Formula. It's been said there is no miracle pill out there to make you thin. To my surprise, there ARE supplements though that make weight loss and weight management not only possible, but so much easier. Whether you follow the Detox Diet or any other "diet" these supplements will help you obtain the best results. They are the healthy and realistic way to better health and fat loss. I lost 8 pounds and maintained that loss after finishing the supplements. These gems increase your energy (without making you jittery or nervous), reduce hunger and increase the skins clarity. It's a relief to know that if I ever want to drop some weight, or if I gained a little too much during the holidays and want to get back to my ideal weight...then I can take these supplements and get back on track. I highly recommend these!

I guess I should start by saying at the time I started this I was 25 years old, exercising 3-4 times per week and at 5'8" weighed 142 pounds. I used to be able to exercise 6-7 days per week and my weight would consistently stay right around 135 (due to a new job, I don't have as much time for exercise anymore paired with more meals on the go, hence the weight gain). I was eager to use this diet to kickstart my weight loss and get back to my target weight more quickly. After following the diet and taking the pills for 10 days, in addition to increasing my workouts (6 days per week), I lost two pounds. Which is exactly the same rate I lose weight eating my normal diet without supplements, when I am able to increase the frequency of my workouts. For me it wasn't worth the constant hunger, and yes I was constantly hungry, for pretty insubstantial results. Maybe if I had more weight to lose, or didn't already attempt to lead a fairly healthy lifestyle this product would have had a more profound effect. For now I will stick with my normal weight loss regime of unassisted diet and exercise.

Comments about Perricone MD The Metabolic Formula Supplements:
The Metabolic program enabled me to jump start a weight loss after the holidays. I read Dr. Perricone's book (Forever Young) and it all made sense. I lost 11 pounds in 10 days. More importantly, I feel better. The video on the Perricone site was helpful - as I never could have managed without adding chai seeds to the shakes. I did the blueberry version (with cold water) in the morning...and did the cocoa version (with hot water) for lunch. Luckily I was able to be home during this time, as an increase in fluid intake meant more frequent trips to the restroom. If I had to do this and be at the office, I would likely swap having the salmon meal for lunch and the cocoa drink for dinner. Also, I continued my at home Pilates program and walked when I could. Honestly, the last 2 days of the program, I snuck in a few unsalted peanuts. My only suggestion for improvement would be for Dr. Perricone to add some sort of "step down" program. The 28 day diet is terrific...but there are a lot of different ingredients to buy all at one (not practical for a one person household - and expensive to buy if all organic). Something for the Dr. to consider. Also, I take no meds, but if you have health issues...always a good idea to work with your doctor. Unless your doctor can give clear reasons why this program would not make sense for you, start shopping for another doctor! Thank you Dr. Perricone.

Pricy but I'm worth it!
from Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY
I have tried these packets several times when I need a motivater and need to start dieting again. They work and even though they are rather expensive, I feel they do the job to get me started and I then follow through with the Perricone Weight Management packets. I am worth it.

Love this product!
from San Francisco
I absolutely love this product. I always struggle with my weight and seem to slowly gain weight if I don't actively try to lose. I saw results after just a few days, it's really amazing. My waistline slimmed down, I had more energy and stopped craving sweets. Really amazing!

Great Quality Product

About Me Health Conscious
I bought this at a [@] anniversary sale. The sales rep told me that I'd lose 10 lbs in 10 days and that it would jump start my metabolism. I really only need to lose about 10 lbs, so I highly doubt that is possible. She wasn't even aware that there is a special diet that needed to be followed. I used this product 2 times a day instead of 3. I am 43, and I started slowly gaining weight after starting a new job. I felt tired all the time and hungry. Even after eating a big meal, I would still feel hungry and never satisfied. My weight started to creep up slowly. I was almost 125 lbs when I started this. I did not follow the diet, but I was able to eat sensibly and keep my calories down to 1200 to 1300 calories most days. I didn't really exercise either. What this product did is it helped curb my out of control appetite, and it didn't make me feel jittery. I am really sensitive to stimulants, and this product didn't over stimulate me. Now, that being said, I did have a hard time getting to sleep. My weight is down to 122 lbs. I feel that this product can help one to stick with a sensible diet plan by helping energize (but not over stimulate) and helping to curb appetite. Also, the quality of the supplements seems high. I didn't feel nauseous from taking these on an empty stomach.
