Got my free bottle of Slim FX and I have been using it for 1 week. Here are my impressions.
Serving size for me = 2 caps. I'm a male, age 32, and weigh 205lbs.
I've seen a lot of people asking these same two big questions, so I figure I'll start here first.
Does it last for 12 hours? Absolutely, and it feels really good the entire time too.
For the first two hours or so, I get a really big rush of energy. It's not jittery energy, but it's a noticeable rush of very clean energy. It kicks in and you can definitely feel it, and when it does I just want to be up and getting stuff done, and if there's nothing to do, I'm looking for something to do...not because I'm feeling jittery or anxious, but because I feel a strong sense of motivation to be productive. Love that.
After the initial 2 hour burst of energy, you get these smooth bursts of energy at just the right times throughout the day for the next 10 hours. And that starts at about the 3 hour mark. After that initial burst starts to wear off, the next thing I know I'm feeling all happy, energized, talkative and very social. These bursts sneak up on me because I don't even notice the transition from one energy burst to the next.
All in all, this does last all day, just like they say.
Is it as good as Slim Xtreme? In some ways, it's better (I'll explain below), and in others it's about 70-80% as good...and that's a big hit in my book.
Slim FX is better in the sense that I don't have to drink myself drunk at 2am in the morning to fall asleep. Seriously, when I'd take the original SX, I knew I'd be screwed if I didn't have a bottle of red wine to help me come down at night. On this new Slim FX, falling asleep is not a problem at all. It does last for 12 hours, so just make sure you take it at least 12 hours before you go to bed.
It's also better in the sense that my appetite doesn't feel totally nuked to hell. On the original stuff, I had no desire to eat, and no problem going 6 hours without eating. Obviously that's not healthy, nor is it good for bodybuilding goals. On Slim FX, I don't really notice myself craving food or getting hungry, but if I have to eat, I can chow down a meal. So this really helps me stick to eating my 6 small meals throughout the day with ease.
I didn't take SX and I won't take Slim FX to lose weight....sorry, not much help on this aspect. Rather, I take it because I just feel like Slim FX makes ME a better ME. I'm more motivated throughout the day, my mind is more engaged with whatever I have to do, when I'm focused on something I can think much more clearly about the topic, the concentration is wonderful, I feel more creative, and to me, that makes this product a home run.
Now, the original did this too, and while Slim FX isn't 100% identical in this category (I'd say it's about 80% as good), it's still 100x better than anything else I've tried since.
As for the energy, again, it's about 75-80% of the original, but it feels very good, very smooth, very refined, and it just the right amount I need at the right times throughout the day.
So cheers to AX for making such an amazing product that as I said above, helps me feel like a better version of me. You guys rock, and thanks for the free bottle to try out!!!!!
