When I began searching for a fat-burner to incorporate in my P90X routine, OxyElite Pro was one of the first and most hyped products that I found. Just typing OxyElite Pro into Google will produce almost 300,000 results, with pages upon pages of positive reviews. While researching OEP and reading so many raving reviews on it, I couldn’t help but wonder if this product can really be as great as everyone says it is. Can you really lose weight with this fat burner? Does it live up to the hype, or is it just another weight loss fad? Well, after using OEP for six weeks, I found that it did in fact live up to the hype.

OEP is the first fat burning supplement that I’ve ever used and it has definitely set the bar high. The very first day that I began using it, I noticed the stimulants start working within the first 30 minutes. It didn’t make me anxious or paranoid, and it didn’t give me the jitters (as others have reported in their reviews), but what it did provide me with was a constant and reliable source of energy and focus throughout the day. It usually takes me about two hours and multiple cups of coffee to really get the energy and focus that I need to carry out my daily tasks, but one pill of this stuff in the morning and another early in the afternoon would have me ready to go.

While using OEP, there was a noticable change in my appetite. I had to force myself to eat my usual 6-8 meals a day, and meeting my intake goal of 1800 calories daily was almost a challenge in itself. But I managed, and it really worked out for the better.  It is important that you stick to a healthy diet while using this product. If you fail to do so, the appetite suppression will not be as effective as it should be.

Another great thing that I noticed was that I was burning between 50 and 75% more calories during cardio-intensive workouts. During the Kenpo X routine in P90X, I was burning roughly 650 calories before starting with the OEP. While using OEP, however, my calories burned went up to around 950, and some days even upwards of 1150 calories burned in a single workout.  And by the end of the workout, I was rarely exhausted and honestly could have burned even more calories.

While OEP is definitely a very effective product, it is no magic pill.  A healthy diet and workout routine is crucial for this product to work.  While you would probably still benefit from some of the energetic properties without a proper diet and workout plan in place, the fat burning aspect of OEP would not be effective.  It is a very potent product and should be used with care.  It is recommended to take a multivitamin while using OEP, or it could have unwanted side-effects such as minor hair loss and changes in skin complexion.  Another downside of the product is the price.  At $40 for the 90 capsule bottle (at GNC), it is quite pricy.  I will say, though, that results are worth the price you pay for the product.

In rating OxyElite Pro, I give it the following scores:

  • WEIGHT LOSS  9.5/10
  • ENERGY  8.5/10
  • PRICE  5.5/10

OxyElite Pro is without a doubt one of the best weight loss supplements on the market.  I haven’t tried them all, but after using OEP for six weeks during the P90X routine, I will not be using any other product for weight loss in the near future.  The large list of benefits heavily outweighs the few negatives that are associated with it.  I have already recommended the product to friends and family who are looking to lose weight fast, and will continue to do so until a better product comes out.  But until then, I’ll be using OxyElite Pro.


Angry Birds Lite Beta for Android – First Impressions

4 09 2010

Angry Birds Lite Beta, the highly anticipated game on the Android platform, was released into the Android Marketplace today.  For those who have not heard of the game before, it was initially released on the iPhone in December 2009 and quickly became one of the most popular games available in the iTunes appstore.  The objective is to play as a flock of birds who have lost their beloved eggs to a heathen group of pigs.  Each level has the pigs hiding within different structures and buildings, and the objective is to slingshot your fellow flock members as weapons to try and knock over the structures, killing the pigs.  When all of the evil pigs are either directly hit, or killed by a falling building, the next level is unlocked.

  • GameplayThe gameplay here is simple and addictive.  Simply pull back on the slingshot with your finger, adjust your trajectory to the appropriate level, and let the bird fly.  You can pinch to zoom in or out for a better field of view.
  • GraphicsThe graphics here are great, and the frame rates are smooth.  Although there are some pauses and slight delays between levels, they hardly interfere with the gameplay.
  • Game depthThe beta version has 15 levels for your pleasure.  I went through all 15 in about an hours time, but until the full version is released, I will be going back and aiming to beat high scores.  This game is just that fun to play.  When the full version arrives on the market for download, I’m sure that many, MANY more levels will be available.
  • Overall ImpressionsOn arrival, the full version of this game will almost definitely take the crown as the best game in the Android Market.  Everything about this game is fun, even down to the sounds.  The beta version has a few issues with compatibility across all Android versions (I had to uninstall and reinstall to get it running), but I would expect this to be resolved before a full launch.  Even though it is a beta, it will provide hours of enjoyment for the waiting room or slow day at work.
