Weight Loss Formula No.1 from RealDose is a weight loss supplement that promises to help users lose weight in as little time as possible by addressing the main issues associated with fat accumulation and storage in the body.
The product is currently being heavily advertised in many websites, with most having reviews that seem too good to be true. This is why I decided to check and see what the real deal is about Weight Loss Formula No.1.
RealDose Nutrition, the company that manufactures and markets Weight Loss Formula No.1 guarantees consumers to provide supplements with “the right ingredients at the real dose”. When you visit their website you’ll see that the company does not only offer supplements that are supposedly all-natural, but they offer a lot of information on various health topics as well.
In all my years in the health and fitness community, it was just until recently that I heard about Real Dose Nutrition. In fact, I would’ve probably stayed unaware of it if a friend hadn’t told me about it and its vigorous efforts at marketing Weight Loss Formula No.1. With a bit of research, I learned that the company been in business for a little over 4 years and up until recently has not been active in marketing their products.
My first impression of Weight Loss Formula No.1 was that it was another one of those weight loss supplements that promise to help you lose weight in next to no time like magic. Upon further inspection though, the product did not contain the usual “recipe” that most diet pills have in their active ingredients list. What I did see however were herbs that have been cultivated in various parts of the world and are quite popular in those regions for their medicinal benefits.
For starters, Weight Loss Formula No.1 contains 340 mg of Siberian Rhodiola Rosea extract that is known in many medical communities as a cortisol regulator. The level of cortisol you have in your body plays a huge role in the formation of belly fat, and Rhodiola Rosea helps reduce these to healthier amounts so one can say goodbye to that spare tire around the midsection. Aside from this, the product also contains 900 mg of Betel Extract and Dolichos Biflorus which are known to help suppress one’s appetite and regulate metabolism in order to eat less and lose weight faster. Weight Loss Formula No.1 also has 400 mg of Decaffeinated Green Coffee that is known to help in suppressing one’s cravings for sweets and regulate blood sugar levels in the body by increasing the sensitivity of its insulin receptors.
Lastly, the product also contains 15 mg of pepper. Yes, believe it or not, pepper is claimed to be quite helpful in increasing one’s metabolism by triggering a bodily process called thermogenesis. It also allows the body to absorb more nutrients from the food being ingested.
How It Works
Users of Weight Loss Formula No.1 are advised to take a veggie capsule three times a day or one for every main meal. If you’re taking the supplement, you are required to ingest it 30 minutes prior to eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner in order to have the capsule working by the time you sit down and consume your meal. Dr. Steven Sisskind, a co-owner and somewhat spokesperson for the company, also recommends following the meal and nutrition plan enclosed with every package of Weight Loss Formula No.1. Although results may vary from individual to individual, there are users from various reviews I’ve come across with who have seen weight loss in as little as two days.
So how do all these ingredients work together to produce weight loss results? The answer is quite a bit technical, so bear with me while I try to make it as easy as possible.
In a video presentation, Dr. Sisskind discusses 4 hormones that wreak havoc with any weight loss effort if they are left unchecked. These are adiponectin, ghrelin, insulin, and cortisol. Adiponectin is a hormone responsible for triggering the burning of fat in the body which is then used as fuel for energy. People who are overweight tend to have low levels of this hormone, which is why the tendency for them is to gain more weight and thus decrease adeponectin levels even more. Ghrelin on the other and is also called the hunger hormone which is responsible for triggering the brain’s response to food cravings especially at night. If you can’t stop your cravings for food, you probably have ghrelin levels that are higher than normal, therefore pushing your brain to emit a hunger signal.
According to Dr. Sisskind, insulin or the lack of it can also play a huge factor why people have a hard time losing weight. Insulin is responsible directing glucose in the blood to the various muscles in order for it to be used as energy. When the body becomes insulin resistant, the glucose in the blood will not be stored in the muscles but will instead be stored as fat. It is therefore important that one maintain a balance of insulin in the body in order for the sugar in the body to be burned as energy. On the other hand, the body releases the cortisol hormone whenever it is in some kind of stress, and while this is good in some form or another, it also increases one’s cravings for sweets as well as the tendency to be depressed when in a sticky situation. Cortisol also breaks down muscle instead of fat, and the less muscle you have the lesser your chances of ever losing weight.
Now, the ingredients included in Weight Loss Formula No.1 target all these hormones and regulate them in order for the user to feel more energized and less likely to overeat. Picture it as someone who is suffering from hormonal imbalance. For the condition to be corrected, there is a need to neutralize the cause of the imbalance, and this is what the ingredients in Weight Loss Formula No.1 promise to deliver.
My Experience with the Product
Although I am not what you can call overweight, the problem I have is belly fat, and if you’ve done some reading you know that belly fat actually increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks and strokes. After reading the literature on Weight Loss Formula No.1 and watching Dr. Sisskind’s video, I finally decided to give it a try and purchased a single bottle for $67. Each bottle has 90 veggie caps which was a good 30 days’ supply.
I am now on the second week of taking the pills as of this writing and have lost 5 lbs so far. Although I’ve seen some results, I have not quite decided whether it is because of the pills or because of the meal and exercise plan I’ve decided to follow. I plan to go on with just the pills for the 3rd week so it would give me a better idea of whether or not the results are mainly due to Weight Loss Formula No.1. As of this moment however, I can say that the product works to a certain extent because I don’t feel as sluggish as I usually do and I no longer feel hungry every so often. I figure the hormone imbalance aspect is true since I’ve seen the effects.
Pricing and Recommendation
RealDose Nutrition offers 3 supplement packages for Weight Loss Formula No. 1. A month’s supply goes for $67 while a 90-day supply will set you back $179. If you need to lose more than 30 lbs. you can also take advantage of the 180-day supply for $327. All orders can be ordered through Amazon and come with a 365-day money back guarantee. This is actually good considering you can try the product and have a year to request a refund if it does not work out for you and your weight loss efforts.
Will I recommend Weight Loss Formula No. 1? There’s no reason not to, seeing that it delivers as far as its promises. However, I must forewarn you that this is not a magic pill. Taking Weight Loss Formula No. 1 does NOT give you the license to indulge in as much food as you want and still expect to see results – it simply doesn’t work that way as much you would want to believe. Moderation is still the key here, and if you combine the right exercises and follow the provided meal plan to a T, you can and will lose weight with the product. Just make sure you consult your doctor before purchasing the product. As with any weight loss supplement, advice from your doctor can make all the difference in the world especially if you are under certain medications or have any condition you need to be careful of.
