I don't know what to think about this. I think it is giving more energy but as far as the weight loss side effect. I have lost nothing. I am down 1# this week but that is nothing new I have done that without thrive. I am torn if I want to get more when I run out. If I do I think I will just get the dft patches and pills and skip the shake as I prefer Visalus. Any one have any Thrive success stories.
