According to Adiphene marketers and testimonials from clients, this supplement really works. And many people say it works without diet or exercise. That’s the good news. What’s the even better news? You can utilize your Adiphene regimen to kick-start lifelong good habits. Yep, you know what we’re saying: diet and exercise. (I can hear the boos from here!)
We know. We’ve been there. In fact, we’re still there – working to keep healthy beyond a great diet supplement regimen. But it’s not painful, we’re not starving and we don’t commit to hours and hours of exercise every week. Here’s what we have found works best for us to commit to the Adiphene regimen, then continue a healthy lifestyle even after the weight is gone.
How to Take Adiphene
- Take ONE Adiphene pill in the morning 20 minutes before breakfast, along with a full 8-oz. glass of water.
- Eat breakfast 20 minutes after taking your first daily Adiphene.
- Take ONE Adiphene pill in the 20 minutes before lunch, along with a full 8-oz. glass of water.
- Eat lunch 20 minutes after taking your second (and last) daily Adiphene.
- Eat dinner as normal. Take snacks as normal; aim for healthy choices.
Precautions Regarding Taking Adiphene
Do NOT take Adiphene at night or before dinner. The stimulants may keep you awake.Do NOT exceed the manufacturer’s recommended dose (2 pills per day as directed).
How Long to Take Adiphene
- Take Adiphene for a full 30 days before deciding whether or not it’s working for you. You MUST take 30 days of Adiphene pills according to the manufacturer’s instructions, as well as log your weight daily, in order to be eligible for the Adiphene guarantee. See the manufacturer’s website for details.
- The marketers of Adiphene recommend using it according to the instructions for 3 months for ongoing and measurable results.
- DON’T continue to take Adiphene if you experience unwanted side effects or an allergic reaction. This is true of any health supplement.
Do You Need to Diet/Exercise While Taking Adiphene?
According to the marketers, you do not. Here is the statement on their website regarding diet and exercise, and Adiphene’s effectiveness: “Adiphene works completely separately to your diet or exercise routine. Its scientifically proven ingredients work in harmony with one another to fight fat by firing up your metabolism, without any added help from you. However, if you exercise or are on any kind of weight loss diet, Adiphene will massively boost your results”.
However, our ideas on diet and exercise along with diet pill supplementation are:
Don’t overeat or underexercise compared to the regimen you were already doing before taking Adiphene (or any diet supplement), and still expect results just because Adiphene has been added. We believe, from experience with diet supplementation in general, that you will gain weight this way, or at best you won’t lose much or any weight. Eat sensibly while on Adiphene (but don’t starve yourself).
On the other hand, don’t overdo it with a brand-new, intensive exercise program while on Adiphene, or embark on a starvation or fad diet, just because you’re feeling good. We NEVER recommend either of these courses of action, for your own health.
With the added energy you should get from taking the ingredients in Adiphene, this is a great time to embark on an easy, doable exercise program, while adopting healthy eating habits (see below).
So you’ve taken Adiphene for the recommended amount of time and are seeing great results. Now you want to take a break from your supplementation regimen. How can you do this without gaining all the weight back?
- Rediscover the joys of walking. This doesn’t mean you have to take an hour out of your day, each day. Do little things to get more walking in your day. Take the stairs rather than the elevator. Park farther away in the parking lot, and walk from there. Walk your child to a nearby park instead of driving. Take a half-hour evening walk to reconnect with your spouse.
- Give yourself non-food rewards. For many of us, the reward for losing 5 lbs. is dinner out or a date at the movies with a huge tub of popcorn! (Ask us how we know this… no, seriously!) This keeps food in categories – “good” vs “bad” foods – and makes the “bad” foods even more tempting. It also reinforces that food is a reward, not sustenance. Think up non-food rewards: a pedicure, a hike, a movie at home with a loved one, a new blouse.
- Eat enough. Yes, really. Many of us swing from near-self starvation to binging. Considering both physiological and psychological factors, we believe starving yourself is part of what can lead to the binging itself. Stay on an even keel. Eat enough healthy foods to feel satisfied.
- For dinner, divide your plate into threes. Make one third a lean protein, one third a grain or other carbohydrate, and one third non-starchy vegetables. Even the FDA has declared the old “food pyramid”, heavy on the starches, to be outmoded (our words, not theirs, but you get the point). You need to eat carbs but make them a smaller part than that of today’s average American diet if you want to keep the weight off.
- Eat dessert. Find healthy cooking alternatives to your favorite desserts, then have a little. Self-deprivation is another thing that makes foods “bad” and thus, even more wanted, forbidden foods.
- See your doctor. Have your blood screened regularly with a full metabolic panel if your insurance covers it (many insurance plans do). If you see something getting out of whack, look to your nutrition and exercise habits and start tweaking to be more healthy and less sedentary.
Good luck – we wish a lifetime of good health for you!
