[Product Review] Re:Active T5 Super Thermo Slimming Pills by Desirable Body

Introduction: Re:Active T5 Super Thermo Slimming pills

DesirableBody.co.uk contacted me in late October to ask if I would like to do a trial of one of their Re:Active weight loss products, and in the run-up to Christmas, who was I to turn them down?!

I was allowed to choose which product I wanted to test, and I went with the Re:Active T5 Super Thermo Slimming Pills, which are supposed to be a more effective weight loss pills, due to the inclusion of capsicum.

As it was a supply of 60 capsules, it would have taken me two months to complete the course if I’d taken only one a day, but I switched to taking three a day after a week.

Effects

Or should I say: lack, thereof.

The thing is, I never mentioned that I was taking, or had started taking, the Re:Active T5 Super Thermo Slimming pills. I started taking it at roughly the same time as I went back to Weight Watchers – they arrived during my second week.

Thing is, if we look at my weigh-ins, you’ll see how well it helped. The weigh-ins went: +1, -1, -2, in the three weeks while I was taking them, but there wasn’t a single change in my measurements. Nothing changed at all.

Which is weird.

Side-effects

I’m hesitant to talk about side-effects, because I also had the misfortune of switching to a different painkiller while I was taking the Re:Active T5 Super Thermo Slimming pills pills, and I’m not sure which is to blame for the side-effects.

See, I went through three weeks of what felt like the menopause. I was having goddamned hot flushes. You could actually see the heat creeping up my legs as the flush went up my body. It was horrendous.

But it could have been the new painkillers. Of course, I switched off of the painkillers and back onto my old painkillers, and I finished the pills, at the same time, so I can’t even weigh up the difference and see if the side effects continued for any length of time after, while I was still taking the medication.

Alas, I can’t say. I’m just going to assume that my body’s not used to 60mg of cayenne pepper powder every day! ;)

Outcome

Overall, I’d have to say that this is the least-impressive weight loss pills that I’ve used to date. I didn’t notice any serious improvement in energy, and I certainly didn’t notice any difference in my weight – considering that I was using the pills while I was following the ProPoints plan with Weight Watchers, I had assumed that I would see an above-average weight loss, especially in someone my size.

However, I did only gain weight that one week. Which is a plus.

It could also be that I just got unlucky, and that the new painkillers that I was taking had an adverse effect on my weight/mood/body. Unfortunately, it’s not likely that I’ll find out.

Overall

Sadly, in my personal experience, I’m going to have to award the Re:Active T5 Super Thermo Slimming pills by Desirable Body a paltry:

★★☆☆☆

In Which Tracy’s Taking A Break

17th December 2014

All right.

Y’all may have guessed that I haven’t been doing so well lately, what with frequently late weigh-ins and the like.

You’d have guessed right.

I don’t know where my brain is, but it isn’t in a happy place. It’s just very… blah right now. I’m not getting pleasure from anything I’m doing. I’m not even getting any pleasure from my food, and I’m being extremely picky and eschewing a few foods that I used to enjoy because tastes and texture preferences have changed really, really extremely for me in the past six months, somehow, and I’m still not even sure how or why.

What this boils down to is that I’m gonna be taking a break.

It might only be until the New Year. It might be until February or March.

I should still be around on Twitter and Instagram, but if you’re worried, you can always email me.

In the meantime…
