unopened ACE diet pills 50 chf

I ordered 4 bottles of ACE diet pills & think I have a surplus...so if you are interested in purchasing a bottle or two for 50 chf each, let me know.

http://www.sabaforlife.com/en/81/default.aspx

They are unopened with factory seal still intact.

Located in Zumikon, but can post at cost.

PM to contact please.

Re: unopened ACE diet pills 50 chf

Considering that these contain 1,3 Dimethylamylamine I would strongly recommend that you stop taking them and even more strongly recommend that nobody buy them from you.
This was a common additive in the exercise supplement world for many years before the dangers of it were pointed out. It was just this year banned in the US from being marketed as a dietary supplement and the FDA warned consumers of the health risks.

As a side story: when supplement manufacturers found out that this was going to happen guess what they did.
took all products from the sheves? warned their customers not to buy the old formulas?
NO
The wonderful next step was that many companies began flogging the old stuff as limited edition, get it while stocks last, half price etc etc while they could still 'legally' sell these products, a damn disgrace in other words, and proof that many of these so called 'health' companies dont give a crap about the health of anything except their bottom line!

Anyway, if you really value your health you should really stop taking these tablets and just throw them all in the bin.

Isn't that the stuff that was thought to be instrumental in the death of that young girl running the London Marathon last year?

Re: unopened ACE diet pills 50 chf

oh gosh, I sure didn't realize that...I guess the mod should close this thread then.
Good to know! I am usually out of the loop on this stuff but my sister brought me some in May & I thought I would order more so that's why I had 4 shipped.

Mod- please close thread

Re: unopened ACE diet pills 50 chf

I haven't been faithful enough so I don't really know if it works but my clothes fit ALOT looser and I am grateful for that!
I hate exercise & heat & sweating so I am not a good example tho.

Obviously it did, otherwise the OP would have kept the surplus pills to use.

So, congratulations on your successful weight-loss !!!

Re: unopened ACE diet pills 50 chf

Wanna loose weight and fat in your belly.... Go on a gluten / Glucose / fructose free diet. In May my waist was 33 now it is down to 30. I haven't done a single day's exercise.

All glucose?? Well that is basically all sugars and carbs ruled out! Very healthy... I don't think! I'm not surprised you lost weight!

I think so, seeme to remember DMAA (another name for 1,3 Dimethylamylamine) being linked with her death...
One of the side efects is increased heart rate which is then exasperated during bouts of prolonged exercise which can, in severe cases, lead to cardiac arrest...
It was associated with the deaths of two marines in America as well along with an entire raft of other cases of ill health.

Horrible stuff, and a horrible industry. Never consume anything without finding out whats inside it. And your personal trainer isnt the person to ask either, with the best of intentions they just may not know.
I never take anything thats new.
As far as stimulants go caffine is the only one I want in a workout supplement tried and tested and safe in regular quantities.
I won't try anything 'new' until its 20 yrs old!!

Re: unopened ACE diet pills 50 chf

If you really want to lose a lot of weight, as opposed to loose a lot of weight, which makes absolutely no sense, although it could mean you lose some weight, resulting in really loose skin - and so your weight is now loose.

Anyway, if you really want to lose weight - try the calorie free diet. This diet is used by many thousands of anorexics and bulimics the world over. The results are amazing.

If you find this diet a little too strict - you can always fill up on a cotton wool dipped in orange choice. The meal of champions.

Wanna lose weight and fat then just eat less calories than you burn, simples.
But cutting out all glucose and fructose sounds ridiculous as it basically rules out all fruits, and thats a bad thing...
It may work for you because losing weight without eexercising is a very slow process so people take it to extremes to speed it up but it is not healthy nor would I think is it sustainable.
A good diet IS sustainable.
Eat what you want but just don't eat too much of it but as a rule, the healthier you eat the more you can eat and still lose weight (or without gaining weight)

It basically rules out all food apart from fat and protein. Glucose is sugar, sugar is the basic building block of carbohydrate. Sugars and carbs are in fruit, veg and more complex carbs such as bread and rice. This is basically the Atkins diet, which isn't healthy and is very very boring too!

I know what glucose is but missing out on Carbs like bread and rice (and pasta) is not necessarily a bad thing. Most people consume too much of these anyway... and they offer nothing apart from energy (ie, no essential vitamins or minerals) which places them close to junk foods.
You can get along fine without them if you eat enough fruit but ruling fruit out it does seem like a diet lacking in a lot....

Re: unopened ACE diet pills 50 chf

Good for you on reaching a goal of losing some weight. I'm glad nothing happened to you from the diet pills. I can understand how people feel the pull to take something but it's still scary what these pills can do. Someone said weight loss is simple in terms of the science. But if it was so easy in application we'd have a nation of slim people.

Not sure if you wanted suggestions with your initial post, but I'll jump on the bandwagon. ;p What about lots of walking? You can keep it light enough not to get all sweaty and hot as you talked about but you still get health benefits and depending on your diet, it can support weight loss.

As for the jokes about anorexia and bulimia, I hope Dodgyken never suffers from or has someone close to him/her who suffers from either of these.

We do live in a nation of slim people.

It's some of the other ones that have the problems.

I'm getting a bit fed up of the ex-pats on this forum complaining about the Swiss small portion sizes, lack of snacks for sale at the supermarket, lack of weirdo quack-science diet supplement availability etc etc etc.

It's not just science but the majority of the Swiss don't seem to have a problem with it.
