Zantrex 3 - Update 3

Hey Guys,

So as I promised to get back to you to update you on the progress with my Zantrex 3 Blue challenge, here it is:

Starting Weight: 168.6 lbs

Exercise: I work out 1-2 times/week
Current weight: 168.8 lbs
Days taken: 14 days
Goal: 15 lbs in 3 months - 0.0 down

As you can see, I gained the 2.4 lbs I lost the first 4 days and never lost anymore weight.
I did notice that the pill does no longer gives me the energy it used to. I also noticed increase in my appetite which is not a good thing.

I am not going to give up Zantrex 3 just yet, I will continue taking it, working out and eating right and see what happens.
I want to remind everyone once again: DRINK A LOT OF WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT!!!!

The Secret to a Get-Skinny Dinners

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to share some recipes with you that I tried and love.
As you know, I am on Zantrex 3 trying to lose weight, but I did not tell you that I decided to do this because me and ma man are going to Dominican Republic in less than 2 months.
Just watch out for my Zantrex 3 updates.

Here are some recipes you might want to try if you are trying to lose weight and are searching for healthy dinner recipes.

 Minestrone with Endive and Pepperoni

Considering that this minestrone soup incorporates mostly frozen vegetables, it is remarkably savory and aromatic. Look for frozen soup or stew vegetables with potatoes, carrots, celery and onion in the mix to give the soup the best flavor. Although pepperoni isn’t traditionally part of minestrone soup, you’ll find it’s a great shortcut to add spicy, complex flavor.


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

½ cup chopped fresh or frozen (thawed) bell peppers, any color
5 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
1½ teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
⅔ cup whole-wheat elbow noodles or other small pasta
1 pound frozen mixed soup (or stew) vegetables (including potatoes, carrots, celery, onion), thawed, chopped
1 cup frozen baby lima beans, thawed
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion
½ cup diced pepperoni
3 cups lightly packed coarsely chopped curly endive or chard, tough stems removed
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for garnish


1. Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add broth, oregano and thyme; bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Add pasta and cook for 3 minutes less than the package directions.

2. Add mixed soup (or stew) vegetables and lima beans. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; boil until the vegetables are almost tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, pepperoni and endive (or chard); return to a boil. Adjust the heat and simmer until the endive (or chard) is just tender, about 5 minutes. Season with pepper and garnish with Parmesan, if desired.

Eggplant Bulgur Pilaf

One of the most important dishes at a Turkish table, this simple pilaf recipe features a combination of eggplant and bulgur. It is often an accompaniment to meat or chicken.


1 cup bulgur (see Note), preferably coarse

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 pound eggplant (see Tip), diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 bunch scallions, chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
2 large cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
¾ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth (optional)
1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley or cilantro


1. Place bulgur in a large deep bowl, add enough warm water to cover by 2 inches, cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain; set aside.

2. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add eggplant. Do not stir for the first minute; then cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Push the eggplant to the sides, making a well in the middle for the other ingredients.
3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the middle of the pan. Add onion, scallions, bell pepper, carrot and garlic. Do not stir for 2 minutes; then mix all the ingredients, including the eggplant, and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are soft, 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Reduce heat to medium-low. Make a well in the ingredients again and add tomato paste to the middle. Do not stir for 30 seconds; then turn the tomato paste over and cook for another 15 seconds. Add the drained bulgur, oregano, salt and pepper; stir well to combine. Heat through. If the eggplant is not completely tender, stir in broth, cover the pan and simmer until the eggplant reaches your desired tenderness. Remove from the heat; stir in parsley (or cilantro).

Note: Bulgur is made by parboiling, drying and coarsely grinding or cracking wheat berries. Bulgur just needs a quick soak in hot water for most uses. Look for it in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets, near other grains.

Tip: If you’re using large, common globe eggplant, which can be more bitter than other varieties, salting beforehand can reduce bitterness. To salt: Place prepped eggplant in a large colander over a bowl and mix with 1 tablespoon salt. Top the eggplant with a plate weighted down with cans. Let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour before using. Rinse well with cold water, then dry with paper towels.

Tortilla Soup

Here’s a version of chicken tortilla soup that’s both super-easy and delicious. To make it even quicker, use crumbled baked tortilla chips in place of the homemade tortilla strips and skip Steps 1-2. Serve with vinegary coleslaw, lime wedges and hot sauce.


8 corn tortillas, halved and thinly sliced

Canola or olive oil cooking spray
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 Anaheim or poblano peppers, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces (see Tip)
4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes with green chiles
2 tablespoons lime juice
½ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Spread tortilla strips in an even layer on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake until browned and crispy, 12 to 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add peppers and onion and cook, stirring, until the onion begins to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add cumin and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add chicken, broth, tomatoes and their juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in lime juice. Serve each portion topped with some of the baked tortilla strips, Cheddar and cilantro.

Tip: To trim boneless, skinless chicken thighs, we like to use kitchen shears to snip the fat away from the meat.

Quick Roast Chicken and Root Vegetables

Roasted chicken in 45 minutes? No problem. This technique of starting bone-in chicken breasts on the stovetop and finishing them in a hot oven with vegetables gets a hearty dinner on the table in a hurry. While everything roasts, you still have time to make a quick pan sauce with shallot and Dijon mustard. Serve with a spinach salad.


1 pound turnips, peeled and cut into ½-inch chunks

1 pound baby potatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram or 1 teaspoon dried
¾ teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 bone-in chicken breasts (12 ounces each), skin and fat removed, cut in half crosswise
1 large shallot, chopped
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons red- or white-wine vinegar


1.Preheat oven to 500°F.
2.Toss turnips, potatoes, 1 tablespoon oil, marjoram, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper together in a medium bowl. Spread in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, place flour in a shallow dish. Transfer 2 teaspoons of the flour to a small bowl and whisk in broth; set aside. Season chicken with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off excess. (Discard any leftover flour.)
4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken, skinned-side down, and cook until well browned on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
5. After the vegetables have been roasting for 15 minutes, stir them and place one piece of chicken, skinned-side up, in each corner of the baking sheet. (Set the skillet aside.) Return the vegetables and chicken to the oven and roast until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes more.
6. When the chicken and vegetables have about 10 minutes left, return the skillet to medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk the reserved broth mixture again, add to the pan and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by about half, about 8 minutes. Stir in mustard and vinegar. Serve the chicken and vegetables with the sauce.

I hope you enjoy these :)

Zantrex 3 - Update 2

Hello Bs and Gs,

So, I've been on Zantrex 3 for 4 days now.
I have to say, it is not easy to go through the day taking these pills. two days ago I felt so sick that I thought I was going to puke all over my bfs car :s (btw, I did not tell anyone I am talking this pill, because I want to see if people will notice the weight loss). He was a bit worried, because I looked so pale.
If you are a girl, and want to take these pills, then you will be suffering just a bit more than the guys.
Last night i got my monthly gift from the mother nature, and I was regreting that I was born a girl. I want to start with saying that I've been getting my monthly gifts for almost 13 years now and thank G-d it is always a breeze. I do not get cramps, I do not get bloated and it only lasts for 3-4 days. Not with this pill!!!
I was up all night climbing the walls from the excruciating pain I was experiencing. I swear I wanted to die. I did take pain killers but they did not help at all.

Also, we went to a party a couple of days ago and I tried research online before we went if Zantrex 3 has any side effects if mixed with alcohol. I did not find anythning.
From my own experience, it does not have any side effects when is taken with alcohol.

Starting Weight: 168.6 lbs

Exercise: I work out 1-2 times/week
Current weight: 166.2 lbs
Days taken: 4 days
Goal: 15 lbs in 3 months - 2.4 down

I want to remind everyone once again: DRINK A LOT OF WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT!!!!

My New Addition to the Family

Hello Everyone :)

I wanted to share with you, my new bird who is a lineolated parakeet. I called him CoCo, even though we don't know a 100% if it is a he or a she. We decided it will be a boy until we find out from the avian vet the exact sex.
He is the cutes thing ever. I had him for 2 months now and he is very hand tamed. I never knew how needy birds were until I got CoCo. Apparently lineolated parakeets need a lot of personal attention. I an trying to teach him how to talk and its not going anywhere so far :D
I did in fact taught him how to step up on my finger.
He loves his fruits/barries and veggies, especially apples, carrots and sweet potato (which is his fav).
Here is my CoCo after enjoying his apple:

Isn't he the cutest?

Zantrex 3 - Update 1

Hey guys,

First, I want to start by saying that I am not a doctor and therefore all my updates are based on my personal experiences. So far I've been taking the pill for 1 day.

I am going to start by giving some info about me and what I do, and I will be changing the numbers as I go along taking the pill.

Sex: Female (smoker)
Age: 25
Starting Weight: 168.6 lbs
Diet: I eat 3 meals a day: breakfast, lunch & dinner. I try not to snack in between.
Exercise: I work out 1-2 times/week
Current Weight: 166.4 lbs
Days taken: 1 day
Goal: 15 lbs in 3 months - 2.2 down

So far, I've been taking these pills the following way:
2 pills (with a full glass of water) - 30 min before breakfast
2 pills (with a full glass of water) - 20 min before lunch
1 pill (with a full glass of water) - 1 hr before dinner

I suggest drinking A LOT of water, and I mean A LOT!!!!! if you do not eat while taking the pill or don't drink a lot of water, you WILL get sick and you WILL experience side effects.
The pill contains a lot of caffeine which gives you the amount of energy and the feeling of awakening.
I am a huge coffee person. I have to have coffee every morning with my cigarrette and i have at least 1-2 coffees throughout the day. Since i stared the pill yesterday morning, I did not have ANY coffee and honestly, I didn't even crave one. I feel so awake and alive in the morning its unbelievable!
The pill will also makes you pee a lot and you will feel a strange feeling in your stomach but its not significant.
I do not get the jitters like some people specify in their reviews and I do not have any headaches becasuse I drink a lot of water.

Also, since I am a smoker, I noticed that it decreses the urge to smoke and makes me a bit icky when I do. I smoked 40% less yesterday than usual.

Make sure you stay off coffee, coke and any energy drinks because it might cause caffeine overdose.

I will keep you posted on my progress :)

Love E

P.s. Please share your experience with Zantrex 3 Blue.  Can`t wait to hear from you!

So, after reading reviews and reserching this product for over a month, I decided to take the challenge and see what happens. The product is supposed to help you lose weight rapidly, gain energy and increas sex drive.
I was searching online to buy the product but did not find a website that offers deliveries to Canada. I ended finding this product in my local Walmart and I bought 2 (60 capsules) bottles last night. I took 1 before my dinner yesterday, 2 this morning before breakfast and 2 before my lunch. The product has side effects that most people complained about and I so far only experienced a couple, but they are barable.
The product does make me nauseated a bit but when I start feeling this way, I drink plenty of water and the feeling goes away.

Zantrex 3 Side Effects Information

This new diet pill isn't for everyone - individuals with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart conditions, and are sensitive to stimulants should not take Zantrex 3. Zantrex contains high amounts of caffeine, so while using this fat burner, you can expect to experience some (or alot of) jitters.
Aside from the caffeine and the jitters, several ingredients are aphrodisiacs and help sexual performance. So along with a little weight loss, you might find yourself a little more in the 'mood' than usual.
Below are some common side effects of Zantrex 3:
* Jitters, anxiety, increased sweating
* Increase in heart rate, increase in blood pressure
* Nausea, stomachache, diarrhea
* Loss or suppressed appetite (not necessarily bad in this case)
* Cold sweats, restlessness, shaking, irritability
* Increase in urination (as caffeine is a mild diuretic)
* Caffeine can be addictive
Recommended Use
For maximum weight loss, take two capsules with a full glass of water, 15-30 minutes before main meals. Not to exceed two servings in any eight-hour period. Remember, the calorie-reducing properties of Zantrex™-3 are activated by food. For a significant energy boost, take two capsules anytime as needed.
For persons sensitive to the effects of xanthines (i.e. caffeine and caffeine-like stimulants), start by taking only one capsule as directed above and do not exceed a total of two capsules per day. Limit the use of caffeine-containing medications, foods or beverages while taking this product because too much caffeine may cause nervousness, irritability, sleeplessness and occasionally, rapid heart beat.
This product contains a significantly potent xanthine (i.e. caffeine and other caffeine-like stimulants) mixture, in excess of 300 mg per regular two-capsule serving. Therefore, Zantrex-3 is not intended for use by pregnant or lactating women. Consult your physician before use especially if you are sensitive to stimulants. For occasional use only. Keep out of reach of children.

Please note that this product is not for everyone!!!
If the product makes you sick, stop taking Zantrex 3 asap.
