If you could take a pill and lose weight, everyone would be slim.  Hard work and eating right will get you much further than a box of pills ever will.

 Actually, this is more like a dietary supplement for women.  You use it in conjunction with diet & exercise...it's not a pill.

Save the money you would spend on that stuff and put it toward a gym membership.

I took the pills and really liked them. They helped give me energy in the morning and to keep me from getting too hungry between my 5am banana and 9 am oatmeal. They also gave me a burst of energy that I needed in the afternoon when I am getting off work and trying to get motivated to go to the gym instead of straight home.

They didn't make me jittery or ill like other energy pills can do.

 Thanks for the positive post Nicole...that's what I need that extra energy.  I do exercise & count calories but sometimes I could really use that extra boost.  I go to the gym at least 2x per week & I have a pilates video I try to do on the 3rd day to compensate.  I was just curious, as it's suppose to be a good supplement for women.

 Whats with all these negative posts?...what makes you people think I don't work out & exercise?....Thanks for the comment but I already have a gym membership & I do put it to use.  If you can't say anything nice, please don't respond.

***The question was "Has anyone tried SlimQuick??"

No, I have never tried slimquick. 

Yes, I know people who have tried it, and it didn't help them.  One woman did lose some weight, but couldn't maintain that loss once she stopped using slimquick.  What helped them more was learning about ways to change their eating habits to be less hungry throughout the day.  Improving their diets lessened their cravings from the sweets/treats they normally had, gave them more energy to exercise, and helped keep their lost weight lost.

 Thanks maxxSmile...as Nicole said, it gave her extra energy.  That's what I'm looking for..that extra energy to work-out.  I've already altered my eating habits since I quit smoking 3 months ago.  I eat more salads, snack on things like carrot sticks, cauliflower, celery etc.  I make it a point to get in the required serving of fruits & what little meat I do eat is baked or grilled.

So my eating habits aren't the problem, it's my work schedule & the fact that I'm so tired all the time...as I said, I only make it to the gym 2x per week & the other day I exercise at home.  I would like to get to the gym at least 3 to 4x a week.

As far as weight-loss goes, I've already lost 5 lbs since mid December, as I gained 10 when I quit smoking back in November.  So I only have like 5 more to lose. 

Also, SlimQuick alone is not suppose to *cause* weight-loss, from my understanding, it's suppose to be a dietary supplement for women to help *aid* in weight-loss & should be used in conjunction with Diet & Exercise I think my question is being misunderstoodFrown

 I haven't read about it...but all the commercials show weight loss as the result/reason for taking it.  In all honestly I wouldn't advise taking it.  You may be better off with a multi-vitamin (if you don't already take one), or a B complex vitamin (which I have found helps energy levels).     

Congratulations on quitting smoking!  That is a huge accomplishment and one that will benefit you for the rest of your life :)

I tried it, and it DID make my appetite less. However, I'm confident that was just a placebo effect. Because when I stopped taking it, my appetite was still less. My mindset changed. It didn't give me more energy, or make the pounds melt away or anything else magical.

Save your money. I don't think it works.

 becaues you can't drink slimquick for long-term, that's why, and this site is based around sustainable weight loss, meaning you do now what you will always do.

If you are lacking energy to get you through your day, may I suggest doing a search on "adrenal fatigue" and follow the recommendations, especially licorice and quitting ALL stimulants (yes, caffiene too).

I did try slim quick. No negative effects but I'm spending this money for an energy boost that I CANNOT SUSTAIN. I stopped after the box was gone, because it just isn't the healthy way. My energy issue did not need a supplement. It needed a lifestyle change, because I was spiraling and false energy boosts only make the spiral spin faster.

I have a ton of energy now, I don't crash after 4pm (and I do mean crash, I couldn't stay awake on my way home, couldn't bother with dishes or help the kid with homework.)

 YES to the B vitamins! A b-100 complex turned out to be as effective as a cocktail of SSRIs and atypical SSRIs for me.

I've tried it.  It did nothing for me, at all.  No decreased appetite, no increased energy.

 

 

If you're looking for something to give you extra energy, I would suggest a B complex vitamin.  They've worked waay better for me than any of the 'diet' pills, including SlimQuick.  (and, believe me, I tried a lot before I educated myself :D)

 Oops...I thought the site was for nutrition, health, long-term weight-loss, short-term weight-loss, substantial weight-loss etc....Didn't realize it wasn't open to discussions revolving around all of the above.

At any rate, I have a Dr. Appt coming up and I'll probably be better off just talking to my physician & letting her know how I'm feeling with the decreased energy & all & see what she recommends & maybe even have some tests done. 

I take a multivitamin & have even tried taking an additional B vitamin with it, but B vitamins don't absorb very well unless taken with vitamin C (learned this in nursing school...work in the medical feild).  THANKS EVERYONE!!

 

A doctor is the last person I'd talk to about decreased energy unless the condition was chronic and severe and I had ruled out other causes on my own, such as stimulants,  processed foods, exercise etc.   Doctors either prescribe pills or cut and slice...they aren't trained specifically in nutrition, diet etc.   You might use the doctor to rule out an underlying medical condition but as far as solving the problem the answer likely lies in diet and exercise, as most answers do. 

Yes, and it didn't do anything for me. It's true what that person said.. if you could take a pill and be thin, then everyone would be taking that pill. That pill USED to be Ephedra before it was banned. So yeah, take some speed and lose weight.. because it's basically what those pills are. You will gain it ALL back and more after you are bored or used to the pills. Pills are not worth it. Changing your lifestyle is the only way to lose weight naturally and keep it off!

 Exactly, it could be something else...that's why I'm going to mention it to my physician.  As I said before, I am a healthy eater & I'm exercising at least 3x a week...AS I HAVE SAID LIKE 10X ALREADY.

I know what you mean!!! I'm always tired.. always..i make sure i get my iron (although not anemic).. i take multi vitamins and took the extra b complex on the side even and i'm still lacking in energy all the time.. my food now is excellent and i work out moderate-intense 4 times a week.. and still i always lack energy... i tried slimquick.. for the cleanse one.. it did nothing for my energy levels. i did try one that made me SUPER energized and awake.. all i know that it was blue lol.. and it's because the caffeine was off the roof... in the end i used them as "stay awake" pills on the days i had to work night shift.. for a few times.. then lost them somewhere.. which was ok by me because the level of awake i felt was not natural...

anyways... the point of my story is it did not increase my energy level. I would see my doctor about my energy level... but he's an idiot. i had to diagnose myself with gallstones and bring him in the symptoms and research i found before he'd let me get an ultrasound (he said it was my backpack causing me all my pain... for all the 2 lbs of gym clothes i carry in it lol)... turns out i have gallstones and need my gallbladder removed :)... i love google.

Edit: the blue pills were not slim quick. forgot to mention that to clarify sorry
