Wow, that is a lot of money. Glad you found the results that you were looking for. I started taking Thrive three weeks ago and have lost 11 pounds so far. I wasn't really trying to lose weight though. I wanted to take Thrive for the increased energy. For me that was the best thing in the world and my wife loves the fact that I am not falling asleep on the couch after work. Additional benefits I found from taking Thrive was increased mental clarity. As far as weight loss I think the reason that I started losing weight was because so many other things that I was taking, addicted to more or less, I stoped taking when I started using Thrive. I was a two a day RockStar energy drink consumer. About the cheapest I found those are $3 for 2 at the store. I was also running down and getting a candy bar each day for the sugar rush. OK it was because I liked chocolate. Still, because of Thrive I have not had that desire. I also have not had to change my life much at all. No changes that I tried, just changed because I lost the cravings.

Thrive sounds like it does exactly what the "Lipo" does from Slim4Life. It's a little expensive I take it? 1-2 pills per day?

With Thrive it depends what your goals are. For $100 a month you get a month supply of the pills and the Derma Fusion patches that you wear. For people wanting to lose weight you would spend an extra $100 a month or $200 if you want to take a shake every morning. For me I have found that I was spending that $200 a month allready. I would buy breakfast at work, have my energy drinks, hit up the gift shop for a candy bar. I spend less now for something that is good for me. The cool part about taking Thrive is that if you refer a couple people they give you a free month supply if those people buy. Costly? Maybe. Next month I get mine free so I am OK with that.

Hard to tell. It is a young company. Who knows how long they will be in business or if another company will come around with the same or a better delivery method for the product. As it is now I take two pills that are mostly B Vitamins, Niacin, ect. Then a Derma Fusion patch that transfers more vitamins and minerals into my body all day long, then about 30 or 40 minutes after taking the two pills I take the shake on an empty stomach. Im good untill lunch time, other than drinking water before lunch and dinner time. I am thinking that eventually I will drop my weight to where I want it to be and can cut back to a shake every other day. Then again I like the taste of the shakes. They are not considered a meal replacement though. I make them in my blender with a couple bananas, five or six medium sized strawberries, ice, and water. I have considered taking a shake for lunch as well, maily because I don't feel hungry after having one and I love the taste. To me what ever I eat has to taste good.

Just so's ya know soon2bnsurprise - those pills and the daily shake you're taking are overloading you on B12 to extremes. Just the pills, 2 per day, contain 1667% (that's one thousand, six hundred sixty-seven percent) of the recommended daily amount. You['re also getting 250% folic acid, 150% B6, 145% selenium, 217% chromium - most of these vitamins you will find 100% of your daily amount needed in whatever meals you're eating for lunch and dinner. So you're duplicating vitamins and minerals that you don't actually need, risking illness by taking too much of some.

And that derma fusion patch? Main ingredients are coffee extract (aka caffeine) and white willow bark extract (aka salacylic acid, aka aspirin). I just hope you're not taking blood thinners for a heart condition. You could end up rupturing a vein and bleeding to death.

Funny because it seems to be working for me and lots of other people.

Not to mention how much money you are spending on it!!! But then again, if you really look at it as a magic pill that actually works and you are willing to take it for the rest of your natural born life and pay that amount, more power to ya!

He gets it free as long as he gets two referrals a month or week or something - which is probably why he suggested that people PM him for details in a previous post.
