    How does it work for you?
    I read somewhere people were questioning how healthy it was because of rapid weight loss or something. Was NOT a scientific article btw.
    Just curious on people's thoughts of it

    I wouldnt say "rapid " weight losss but it can be very effective with proper diet/training. Caffeine and Green coffee bean would be good to stack with it as well

    RK+ Reduce Xt is also a good "non- stim " stack

    Raspberry ketones at 1.5-2g a day seem to work extremely well for me at least, with respect to keeping fat gain at bay. A bolus of 1g seems to create a pretty powerful thermogenic effect as well, as I'll start sweating even in the chilly fall weather. Check out SNS RK-500 for a pretty solid bargain...complete with delicious raspberry burps!

    Oh that is a pretty good deal most I found were 100mg 90c for ~$15. So 500mg for a little bit more is great. And as long as those burps mix with fish oil burps it will be delicious haha

    Haha yup. My favorite times to use it are preworkout, pre-bed, and before a high fat meal.

    I was going to spread some of the knowledge I learned from you regarding acute dosing of raspberry ketones before high fat meals, Coop. However, you already dropped it.

    Exactly. I've used it on multiple occasions and really like it. It's not ephedra but it works well. Green tea extract is another great on to add.

    I've been popping my RK with my Fish Oil, to cover the burp taste... Lol. I rarely get Fish burps, but RK definitely over powers it.

    So Coop, you throw down RK's 30 min before meals, or do you take them WITH food? I've been taking Green Coffee Bean 30 minutes before meals as you suggested.

    Any thoughts on African Mango also and timing?

    30 minutes is optimal, but I don't have the time to be nitpicky, so I take it all (GCB, RK) pre-meal.

    African Mango has demonstrated weight loss synergy with cissus quadrangularis, so if you have some cissus on hand, take it with the african mango 30 minutes pre-meal.

    Coop, I was reading a little bit about Raspberry Ketones on bb.com. Some guy posted this link,

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?t...one%20androgen


    I'm not sure what the guy was trying to say by posting that study. I'm not so bright when it comes to reading studies.

    It was testing androgen receptor activity, and stated raspberry ketones had the highest androgen receptor antagonist activity of the compounds tested.

    Meaning it was able to bind with the ar to some degree, but have no interaction with it.

    Good call. I have the same experience. I think it's a fair addition to a weight loss stack.
