I was contacted recently and asked to do an extended review of the Activ8 X Diet Drops and Diet Plan in return for free products to trial and compensation on publication of my future reviews, and after checking out their website and being interested by the diet plan and the ingredients of the Diet Drops (Chromium my old friend, we meet again!), I agreed to take part.
Shipping was extremely fast: I was sent an email on Tuesday that my items had been shipped out by Special Delivery, and I received them on Wednesday. (I had a dentist’s appointment on Wednesday, and I had terrible mental images of them arriving during the only 15 minutes I was due to be out of the house that day… I got lucky! They arrived about half an hour after I got home and went to bed again.)
The packaging is completely confidential. Just a sticker on the front with my name and address on it, and a sticker on the back (same shape and size as the one on the front) with the company’s professional name (AMAS Enterprises Ltd) and address on it. No huge red warnings lights that you are purchasing – GASP!- dieting aids over the internet. God forbid, etc.
Included in my packaging was a welcome letter, a copy of the Activ8 X Diet Plan, an AVX Quick Start Guide with a code that I could use to join the Activ8 X Members Forum, and my Activ8 X Diet Drops bottles in a lovely little box.
The bottles are fully glass, except for the stopper. The dropper is glass. The box is very professional and snug! All the information you need to follow the Activ8 X Diet Plan is included in the Diet Plan book, although the Diet Drops can be used with any diet plan. It’s recommended, however, that you follow the Activ8 Diet Plan to max the effectiveness of the drops.
So far, I haven’t noticed quite as large an increase in my energy as I’d have liked, but I’ve only been taking the drops since last Thursday! What I have noticed, however, on my Protein-based days, is that I can eat a lot less during my meals, than I’m used to.
For instance: I usually eat a 70g portion of couscous, a “however large” size of couscous, and a chicken breast if I’m having a chicken dinner at my Mum and Dad’s. Sometimes I’ll even have green beans if Mum has them. Most of the time, I clear my plate because who turns down a roast chicken dinner?!
Last night, we had a roast chicken dinner, and Mum cut our portion of couscous down to 50g, we split a tin of sweetcorn between us but didn’t use the whole thing, and had a chicken breast each… and I didn’t manage to finish all of any of it. I must have left at least a quarter of my food, which must be a first for me.
I mentioned at the beginning of the entry, “Chromium, my old friend, we meet again!” When I was on the Tony Ferguson programme, Chromium was my saving grace, I think. That’s what I put it down to, anyway. Chromium is supposed to level out your blood sugar levels and therefore stop your cravings.
Guess what I haven’t had as many of since Thursday?
So I’m quietly optimistic about the next wee while.
Full ingredients list – the tiny line second from bottom reads, “Siberian ginseng”.
If you’re interested in purchasing Activ8 X for yourself, you can find it on the web over at http://activ8x.co.uk/.
My one-month follow-up review has been posted here, for those interested in the first month’s outcome.
[Update]: The 2-month review has also now been posted here, showing some really good inch-and-weight loss.
In the interests of full disclosure, and as I mentioned in the first paragraph: I have received a free three month’s supply of Activ8 X Diet Drops and a copy of the Activ8 X Diet Plan to review. I will also receive a monetary compensation upon publication of future reviews (one month and two month). None of this has in any way influenced my opinions, which remain my own, as ever.
If you would like me to review your product, please contact me email@example.com, although requesting a review does not guarantee acceptance.
