The secret to losing weight quickly enough to drop your winter fat in time for summer beachwear lies not in a trendy new diet of the stars or an expensive weight loss plan or even in the hottest new wonder food from the Amazon. Losing weight is still about eating properly and getting off your butt and exercising. And so the secret lies in motivation. If you have been having trouble finding the energy to get motivated enough to eat better and exercise regularly, I have three letters for you: TMG.
Or if you prefer multisyllabic medical terminology: trimethylglycine.
Rather than wasting your time breaking down what the ridiculously affordable energy supplement most commonly termed TMG (if you are going to be doing internet searches) is and how it works, I would refer you to the links you’ll find at the end of this article. This article is about my own personal experience with TMG. Everything that you will see described on the pages of those links are attributes of TMG to which I can personally attest.
From the first 750 mg supplement I tried, I received a boost of energy. Not just energy, mind you, but a sense of well-being, mental alertness and clarity of purpose that has not exactly been a common visitor to my body or mind of late. The first day was just to make sure that TMG was not going to join all the other products hyped with the promise of delivering motivation that had failed me in the past: pramiracetam, Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), SAM-e, 5-HTP, CoQ10, St. John’s Wort and L-tyrosine.
Strangely enough, TMG is inextricably linked with SAM-e, an alleged BMOC on the campus of alternatives to antidepressant medications but a big fat failure for me. TMG, or trimethylglycine, is supposed to act like a cheaper, better SAM-e even for those who have had success with SAM-e. I am not one of them and so taking TMG was like night and day. SAM-e did nothing while boosting my dosage of TMG up to 1500 mg filled me with a kind of gentle exuberance to get off my duff and start working out again. Back when I was on Ritalin and obsessed with working out, I could easily put away two or three hours a day exercising.
Not there with TMG yet, keeping hope like I haven’t in a long time. TMG (or trimethylglycine) has provided me with long-missing spark of stimulation to get better. To be better. Even to eat better. Which, as an indicated, is a compulsory component of weight loss. Compulsory, but not always easy. You have to have the motivation before that compulsory part of weight loss comes anywhere close to being easy.
Will TMG (aka trimethylglycine) succeed in energizing you to get motivated to change eating habits and renew (or just discover) your love your preferred aerobic exercise and lifting weight? I’m betting it will. In fact, I’m betting 25 pounds worth of weight loss in just 47 days that TMG will help you lose some weight. It is definitely worthwhile to keep in mind that the quick loss of weight courtesy of newfound motivation and energy provided by trimethylglycine (more popularly known as TMG) I just described was just described by someone battling a serious case of treatment resistant depression.
As they result, your results may vary. But I’m betting it will vary on the positive side of increased weight loss.
