Well, my husband wants to start taking Xenadrine. From what I understand, he thinks he needs it not so much to lose weight as much as getting the energy and motivation to actually get to the gym. He is an active guy by nature, but he's going through some rough times
He used to work out a lot, but hasn't for the past three years.
I don't know anything about that stuff so I did some research on Xenadrine. What I read about it didn't make me feel safe at all. Then I found that there was an ephedrine-free version called EFX, and the ingredients didn't look so bad. It also seems to have somewhat of a mood elevating effect, which would be good for him.

From what I have read, there weren't any terrible side effects or dependance problems. I don't see anything harmful in this list.
I would like to know what our diet experts think about this?
People who work out - do you use something like this?
