As far as I know, the whole L-Carnatine craze in the country started when Del Monte Fit ‘n Right was introduced in the market a few years ago.
And with new drinks containing the so-called weight loss ingredient coming out left and right, I decided to share a little bit of my own experience with Del Monte Fit ‘n Right.
Three years ago, I enrolled myself at Fitness First. I’ve always wanted to lose weight and I thought it’s really time for me to be proactive about it. I was 220 pounds then.
A few months after, the gym held a “Biggest Loser” challenge for the members and the sponsor was, you guessed it, Del Monte Fit ‘n Right.
I really had no plans of joining but when I heard that all participants would get a dozen cans of the new beverage for free, I immediately signed up. Sorry, I’m have an affinity for anything free. 😛
For the best possible results, it’s recommended that one should drink Del Monte Fit ‘n Right three times a day. So my 12 cans would only last 4 days. Hmmm… would I see results? I wonder.
So for the next four days, I drank my supply of L-Carnatine. Along with it, I spent at least an hour of running and cycling at the gym.
What happened at the end of four days? Well, I actually lost 3 pounds. Not bad, I said. All I need is to keep this up and I’ll be in my ideal weight of 160 pounds in around 3 months.
But then my friends said that my weight loss could have been because of the exercise and not because of the L-Carnatine. Good point, I realized.
So for the next four days, I did the same cardio routine. Ate the same way as I did before. And went on without Fit ‘n Right.
How much did I lose after that? A measly 1 pound.
And my initial reaction was, “Woah! Fit ‘n Right works!”
But does it really?
I don’t know. Part of me says yes, but another part of me says no.
In any case, I still drink Del Monte Fit ‘n Right. Not regularly though, but only when I feel like it.
And after three years of regularly going to the gym, I’m still 20 pounds away from my ideal weight. Not that I’m complaining though. I like losing weight slowly but surely. (No stretchmarks 😛 )
What about you? What are your thoughts about L-Carnatine and Del Monte Fit ‘n Right?
