I am twenty-five years old, 5ft8″ tall and have a five year old daughter Millie and a one year old son Gabriele. A little over four weeks ago I had breast surgery to remove my PIP implants which were deemed dangerous after a worldwide surgery scandal broke a couple of years ago and I am now healing well thankfully. I had to take four weeks of total bed rest in order to heal and I wasn’t allowed to lift so much as a kettle let alone my one year old.
So it’s safe to say that I’ve been more than a little lazy recently, gathered several pounds of unwanted weight and not exercised at all for the best part of two months; summer is upon us and I am now panicking at the thought of slipping into a bikini. So what did I do to combat my inability to exercise? Look into supplements of course, as a kickstart to building my exercise back up and shedding those excess pounds in time for the sunshine.
As I’m vegetarian I don’t often take vitamins and supplements as the capsules always tend to be made from gelatine which is animal fat and the thought of it turns my stomach, so browsing around online I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across Voltz Raspberry Ketones.
Basically these natural and fruity supplements boost your energy making it less effort to work out, make you feel great from the 100% natural ingredients AND help to burn fat at an accelerated rate. Wow. They’re also made in the UK which is a massive plus for me as it gives me the reassurance that all safety checks and food hygiene tests have been carried out, are up to scratch and of the highest quality.
I found this snippet of information on the Voltz website:
What is Raspberry Ketone?
For years, we have been drawn to raspberries because of their vibrant colour and sweet, tangy taste. Nutritionists are now learning that these fabulous fruits also contain ketones and believe that they are as healthy and beneficial to the body as they are delicious! Leading US Physician, author, and talk show host, Dr. Oz, even recommends raspberry ketones for aiding in weight loss. When speaking on the topic of raspberry ketone supplements he stated that they were “The #1 miracle in a bottle to burn your fat.” In fact, raspberry ketones seem to be one of nature’s best kept secrets for helping people live healthy, boost their energy, and feel great!

The instructions on the back are clear and helpful recommending you take two tablets each day, one before breakfast and one before lunch. The bottle contains 60 tablets which will last a whole month and perfect for my summer health kick. I love that they’re not powdery or disgusting tasting like some smelly herbal vitamins on the market, and being easy to swallow means that I can take them discreetly when I’m out to lunch without gagging or getting them caught in my throat.
So my plan is to begin working out a little at a time as I still can’t lift or do sit ups but I have an exercise bike at home so I will cycle for half an hour a day with the help of my Raspberry Ketones. I’m going to weigh myself at the start and end of the week and report on how I get on and share my results with you all. On paper Voltz Raspberry Ketones look amazing and the answer to my prayers, but how will they fare to get me beach body ready with just half an hour of gentle cycling a day? I won’t be changing my diet at all as I’m vegetarian and eat fairly healthy anyway, and I’m only doing half an hour of gentle exercise each day as I know it’s something I can stick to and manage whilst I’m still healing. If I didn’t have my exercise bike I would have gone for a half-hour walk instead or made a conscious effort to increase my movement throughout the day; perhaps a spring clean of the house or some hoovering and hanging the washing.
UPDATE: 31/05/13 Day 1
To make my results fair I am beginning day one without taking the Raspberyy Ketones, this way I can check my starting weight and measure my level of fitness before and after by tracking my progress on the exercise bike’s monitor.
Stepping on the scales this afternoon I was a little shocked to see that I am weighing in at 9st7lbs and am 5ft8″ tall. I usually tend to weigh between eight and a half to nine stones, but since my surgery my weight has increased by having larger breast implants fitted and not being able to exercise. I am hoping to lose between 1-2lbs across this week whilst taking the Raspberry Ketones; I will be exercising at the same time every day and weighing myself at the same time of day in one week to keep the results as accurate as possible.
With no supplements my first attempt at thirty minutes of gentle cycling burnt 256 calories over 11.25km of cycling and I’m panting for breath, tired and sweaty! Oh dear! Roll on tomorrow…
UPDATE: Day 2So today I started taking my supplements, one before breakfast and one before lunch and I mounted my exercise bike with a spring in my step and found my half hour cycle noticeably less effort than yesterday. I had so much more drive to keep peddling faster and for longer instead of getting tired and slacking then picking up again like I did yesterday.
UPDATE: Day 3I feel so incredibly pumped right now thanks to my Voltz, I found it so easy cycling today that I went OVER my half an hour by mistake whilst playing Candy Crush Saga on my phone and peddling – whoops! Using the supplements has made burning fat so much easier and sustainable as it gives me the boost to go longer, raises my metabolism to make my working out burn more fat than I could with no extra effort, and because it doesn’t destroy me and leave me puffing and panting I’m actually looking forward to my daily cycle. It’s not a chore, it’s exciting and I can’t wait for my end of week weigh-in in four days time. The time is flying!
UPDATE: Day 4I’m into the swing of things today and took my supplements before my ride whilst I watched the TV in the lounge and the time flew. I totally forgot I was working out because it was so effortless, I breezed through it and didn’t feel tired or achy at all; just full of energy and alert, I could have easily cycled on for another half an hour but I refrained as I’m testing just thirty minutes of exercise a day and want to keep my results fair by staying consistent.
UPDATE: Day 5Today’s half hour cycle was great, I put on some music videos and peddled away whilst playing Candy Crush Saga on my iphone and the minutes flew by. My legs were a little tired from yesterday so I didn’t manage to beat yesterday’s score which was disappointing but I worked up a great sweat and felt amazing afterwards.
UPDATE: Day 6I literally dripped with sweat after todays workout and feel so good it’s beyond words. I’m full of energy, I’m standing tall, feeling body confident and loving working out; Voltz has given me that nudge to keep going and push myself further and I actually can’t wait to step on the scales after tomorrows workout!
UPDATE: Day 7I had such a long day today and felt totally exhausted by the time I arrived home this evening. I’ve been coughing, sneezing and feeling weak since this morning as it seems that I’ve caught my sons cold and it’s now slowly taking effect. Taking my final supplement for the week I got onto my bike and peddled my legs off with the very last ounce of strength that I had left and was surprised to have gone as far as I did, but the supplements really perked me up.
Having finished my week of exercise I had one final challenge to meet, my weigh-in with the bathroom scales and the moment of truth, would the past seven days of supplements and gentle exercise be worth it? Dripping with sweat from my final workout and in desperate need of a shower, I stood square on to the scales, took a breath and stepped on. The needle spun across the digits rising rapidly and clanking to a halt when it hit 9st3.5lbs, a whole three and a half pounds LESS than my weight of 9st7lbs just seven days before. And the biggest smile spread its way across my face in disbelief. I was hoping for a one or two pound loss at most in line with an average suggested weekly weight loss but I’d only taken gentle exercise, however with the help of my Voltz Raspberry Ketones I almost doubled my expectations; which when you look at it, it actually isn’t that unexpected at all, as the whole purpose of the supplements is to assist the metabolism and make shedding fat a lot easier. So really it simply did exactly what it said on the tin. How very refreshing and straight forward!
I am incredibly pleased with my weight loss thanks to Voltz, it not only made working out so much easier and gave me more energy, but doubled the weight I’d hoped to lose and exceeded my expectations in every way. A great example of a natural UK supplement at it’s finest!
