Adiponectin: The Super Fat Burning Hormone

You might have read a bit about adiponectin in my free report, but this was really just the tip of iceberg!

Not only does increasing adiponectin burn fat…

New research also indicates that increasing your levels of adiponectin can suppress type 2 diabetes.

Let’s focus on diabetes. In a recent study, Rob van Dam, PhD, of the Harvard School of Public Health, reported that increasing adiponectin was associated with almost a 30% reduction in the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The association remained consistent across all ethnic groups.

“Currently, adiponectin is among the strongest and most consistent biochemical predictors of type 2 diabetes,” the author concluded.

This is exciting stuff! And this may be just one of the reasons why adiponectin is so effective at preventing weight gain.

It appears that along with telling your body to burn calories instead of saving them as fat…

That it also has a powerful insulin lowering response.

This is why I am so excited about a specific ingredient that we included in our new RealDose Weight Loss Formula No. 1 that is proven to increase adiponectin by 15.3%

And more importantly, this ingredient is now proven to increase fat loss by more than 140%.

This means it more than doubles fat loss results.

Even better, this is just one ingredient in our new formula… the others ingredients are just as impressive.

Together, they are incredibly powerful!

If you are ready to finally lose the weight then MAKE THIS THE DAY! Click the link below and give it a try…

Try RealDose Weight Loss Formula No. 1

You will not be disappointed!

Until next time,

Dr. Steve

    Interestingly, you mentioned nothing about who is financially supporting the “double-blind studies,” in which universally respected scientific periodical the results were published and anything about safety and effectiveness as a direct result of the “double-blind” tests?

    • Dr. Steve says:

      We currently have clinical research posted on our website showing safety and effectiveness on the individual ingredients. But not yet on the RealDose formulation as a whole. We are gathering information from actual usage and plan on a formal a randomized double blind placebo controlled study in the future.

  4. Kate says:

    I’m not seeing any weight loss even though I’ve been taking the Weight Loss Formula No. 1 now for a few weeks. When should I start seeing results?

    • Dr. Steve says:

      It’s not unusual to lose 5 to 10 pounds your first week. A healthy rate of weight loss is 2 pounds a week thereafter until you reach your goal.

      • Phyllis Hoffman says:

        you did not address the fact that she had been using product for a few weeks with no weight loss. Does thie happen frequently?

        • Dr. Steve says:

          Hi Phyllis, thanks for writing in. It is unusual to use the product for weeks and not experience any weight loss. However, there are many circumstances that can hinder weight loss including hormonal conditions, medical conditions, and medications. We also have no control over what people eat and how much movement they get. It is our goal to offer education and troubleshooting to those who need it, so that we can help them determine what might be holding them back from achieving their goals.

          • Sierra says:

            If I am taking prozac (anti-depressants) will Real Dose not work/affect my body or hormones negatively?

          • Hi Sierra,

            Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 has been developed to be well tolerated and safe for every day use. It can be taken in tandem with other medications, even those commonly prescribed for the treatment or regulation of Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and certain Thyroid Disorders.

            That said, I do encourage you to first speak with your personal doctor before taking RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 and Prozac. Though we are confident that our supplement will not, in any way, interfere with or hinder the effects of your medications, we have no sure way of knowing you will be affected, specifically.

            Your health is of the utmost importance to us, Sierra! Have a healthy day!

        I so much wish I could try this product, but my finances will not allow me to…sound like a fantastic product.

  5. Gloria Jones says:

    I would like to thank Dr. Steve for this most enlightening information. I would like to know what triggers hormore imbalances.

    I have a sibling whose weight was normal during her youth. She got married and had one son and from the time she gave birth to that son she gained excessive weight, especially in her breast. It is evident that this weight gain has affected her health, as she complains for problems with her feet. Her dress size is 26.

    I too am overweight. at 5 feet I am size 18. I look forward to trying your Real dose product.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Some people are genetically predisposed to hormonal imbalances, however lifestyle also plays a significant role in determining body physiology. Many of the activities associated with healthy living, such as regular exercise, a nutritionally balanced diet, and consistent sleep patterns, can help stave off hormone imbalances. Living a sedentary lifestyle and eating excessively large or unhealthy meals can cause hormonal imbalance. Likewise, working too hard, not eating well, and not getting enough rest can also lead to unhealthy, unbalanced body chemistry.

  6. Heidi says:

    Hello – You speak of blueberry and cherry concentrate. Where can I find these? I have looked in grocery stores and cannot find them. Thanks.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      You can find blueberry or cherry concentrate at most local health food or nutrition stores. You can also do an online search
      and find several varieties you can order and have shipped directly to your home.

    Good healthy morning-could you post pictures of where you get some of the ingredients and of your production plants? I don’t have an image of how supplements are made. Thanks Sj

  8. Gangaa says:

    I have a relative, who is “Obese”, a diabetic, and also has ‘Hypertension’. She is on ‘Prescribed Medications’. My question is, should she take “Real Dose Weight Loss Formula1″ along with taking her medications? or she should discontinue her “Medications” and take “Real Dose Weight Loss Formula1″ ? Please respond.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Hi Gangaa !

      Real Dose is caffeine free and made without harsh stimulants, which is very unique in the dietary supplement industry. We formulated RealDose to be safe, non-addictive, and without side effects. We are not aware of any potential food or supplement interactions.

      We’ve taken great care to formulate RealDose Weight Loss Formula so it will not interfere with most medications, including those for the treatment of diabetes, cholesterol, and high blood pressure. However, if you have a medical condition or a concern about a potential interaction with RealDose Weight Loss Formula ingredients and the medications you are taking you should always consult with your physician.

      You should never discontinue a medication without your physicians approval.

  9. Katherine and David says:

    Dr. Steve,

    Please tell us the best way to take Real Dose on days of intermittent fasting.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Dear Katherine,

      Thank you for your interest in RealDose ! We recommend taking
      1 VegiCapsule, 3 times a day 30 minutes before meals. If you are fasting, continue
      to take the prescribed dosage, 3 times per day at 4-5 hour intervals. For example,
      8 am, 12 pm, 4 pm .

  10. Violet says:

    is Real Dose Weight Loss Formula1 available in sydney Australia?

  11. Jin says:

    Can we combine realdose with Intermitten Fasting? Directions say 3x a day before meals. What if I IF and only eat 1 or 2 meals?

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Hi Jin !

      RealDose is formulated to work in conjunction with any healthy eating plan. We recommend eating smaller more frequent meals throughout your day, and avoid skipping meals for best results. However, RealDose will still be effective to help you lose weight, if you choose to fast. You should continue to take RealDose at the required dosage 3 times per day.

  12. Juanita Elijah says:

    I’m breastfeeding but need to lose 200lbs is this safe to take while still feeding my child ?

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Hi Juanita ! Great question. RealDose Weight Loss Formula is not intended for use by pregnant or nursing women.
      You should always consult your health care practitioner before taking any dietary supplement.

  13. Chrystal says:

    Has this been approved by the FDA? If not why, if this product is all natural?

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Our product is not a drug but rather a nutritional supplement. Dietary and nutritional supplements are under the guidance of the
      FDA Nutritional Supplement act, and our product strictly adheres to all FDA rules and regulations for nutritional supplements.

      “FDA Approved” is related only to drug approvals.

    • Jeanne says:

      @Chrystal, If the FDA had approved it I would more than likely to not buy the product! The FDA does NOT protec the consumer they go arm in arm with the drug companies & they do not want us to be free to take the supplements of your choice.

  14. Christina says:

    Do you has any stories of this supplement actually working? I have tried so many things. From pills dieting exercising and all I have to show for it is that I gained weight. I would like to hear from real people that have had possitive results.

  15. Diane says:

    Dr. Steve,
    Your product sounds so inviting. I have been on Quick Weight Loss diet plan. I lost the amount of weight I wanted but then gained almost all of it back. It is so hard to keep it off. Will your product work?

    • Dr. Steve says:

      To answer your question, RealDose Weight Loss Formula is natural, stimulant-free and completely safe for everyday use. You may confidently take RealDose Weight Loss Formula as long as needed to help you achieve AND maintain your ideal weight. In other words, you could take this for your lifetime if you choose to, but if you follow the right diet and lifestyle choices, over time you may have less need for the supplement to maintain your weight goals.

  16. Big Ross says:

    Does this product have any untoward GI side effects?

    I’m interested!

  17. Big Ross says:

    Doc can you please read this thread and substantiate or counter this “Ted Hutchinson” guys explanation about this whole thing?

    It’s hard to dispute clinical information, but when the bottom line is a product shill (no offense, really) I have to give it the hairy eyeball at least for a minute before pulling the trigger on a product like this.

    You seem genuine for sure,, but the world is a slippery place for sure!

    Thanks for your time and attention. -C

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Keep in mind, most people gain weight from years of eating foods that are full of chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives, as well as making poor food choices. It’s not only much how MUCH people eat that makes them gain weight, but what and when they are eating also causes weight gain. All of this leads to
      hormonal imbalances. This is where RealDose can help. Supplements can help you get back on the right track, however without making a lifetime commitment to proper nutrition and exercise, most people will gain their weight back as soon as they stop taking a supplement. Ultimately, most of the supplements suggested in the link you sent can be found in foods we eat . We should all strive to have a well balanced nutritious diet with lot’s of variety. If the claims are true, the nutrients we will get from those can’t do anything but help those of us who wish to acheive the healthiest body we can have.

          DR. STEVE,

  18. Rosalie says:

    Dr. Steve: I weighed 194 lbs. over this past Thanksgiving. While visiting on that holiday, my niece told me she lost weight (30 lbs. in three months) using a HCG product her doctor had sold her. She bought this product for me and I started taking it on Dec. 8, 2011 and weighed 188 lbs. on that day. I stopped taking the HCG on January 8, 2012. While I didn’t lose a lot of weight, I did get down to 178 lbs.and was happy about it because I had not been able to lose weight much at all. I lost several pounds before the HCG from fasting. But what has happened when I went in the maintenance phase was that I continued to lose weight without HCG. Today, March 5, 2012, I weigh168 lbs. The same doctor that sold my niece the HCG and sent it to me, too, sent me an article about Adiponectin today. I Googled it and that is how I found you and your article. I want to try the HCG again because my nephrologist said ten days ago that if I lose another 10 lbs. he will consider my request to go off Metformin. My daily glucometer readings are around 100-109 and have been that way for months, yet my AICI is 6.4. My nephrologist diagnosed me over 1 1/2 years ago with Type II diabetes. I was wondering if you think I can take the HCG product with your RealDose Formula No. 1 at the same time or if this will be just too much? I was 150 lbs at the time of my double-lung transplant in late 2009 and gained all the weight from being sedentary and the various medications (17 for a period of time) they put me on. I’m not on that many anymore. Naturally, I want to get back to 150 lbs., but I only need 10 lbs to lose to get off Metformin. My GFR is 36 from my last labs. I am 5’6″. It appears you are saying that nothing in the products you use react adversely with other vitamins or medications. Currently, I take no vitamins at all. Plus, you claim it also has a positive effect on dealng with stress (cortisol). Would you please opine? Thank you for your help.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Yes, we’ve taken great care to formulate RealDose Weight Loss Formula so that it will not interfere with most medications, including those for the treatment of diabetes, cholesterol, and high blood pressure. However, you should always consult with your physician regarding any potential interaction with RealDose Weight Loss Formula ingredients and the medications or supplements that you are taking.
      The FDA recently issued a warning about HCG, they advised consumers who have purchased homeopathic HCG for weight loss to stop using it, throw it out, and stop following the dieting instructions. Harmful effects should be reported online to FDA’s MedWatch program or by phone at 800-FDA-1088 (800-332-1088) and to the consumer’s health care professional. You can find more information about this topic at
      Understanding how food influences your blood sugar will improve your understanding of how to best control your blood sugar and will also aid in weight reduction.
      Maintaining regular eating intervals each day will help you establish and maintain target blood sugar levels set by your doctor. Having a regular breakfast, lunch and dinner will prevent you from becoming overly hungry at the next meal, causing you to overeat. If long periods are expected between meals, scheduling a snack with a balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat to control your blood sugar levels.

However, if you have a medical condition or a concern about a potential interaction with RealDose Weight Loss Formula ingredients and the medications you are taking you should always consult with your physician.

    Can she take your supplement and help her lose weight, get her diabetes possibly under control?

      Hi Donna, even though I am a doctor, I’m not your moms personal doctor, and there may be details about her
      particular health condition that only her doctor would know. I realize this is frustrating, and I apologize.
      I would recommend speaking with her physician about the ingredients in RealDose and possible interactions with the medications she is taking.
      You can also direct him to our website, where we have research information listed as well.
      Further, I would let him know we’ve formulated RealDose Weight Loss Formula so it will not interfere with most medications, including those for the treatment of diabetes, cholesterol, and high blood pressure, as well as other medications, supplements, and foods. We feel it is safe for everyday use and it does not contain caffeine or other stimulants. Here is a link to the ingredients so you can discuss with your physician :

  26. Phyllis Hoffman says:

    is there any correlation you know about between your product and AD and/or dimentia. You did not comment on any of the findings other than “we should all eat properly”. I am very interested in trying your product but very skeptical.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Hi Phyllis, I have seen alot of articles lately about adiponectin and it’s correlation to bone mass, alzheimers, cancer, etc.. and while we know if you have too much fat you have low adiponectin levels and if you are too thin, you have raised adiponectin levels. The correlation between adiponectin and breast cancer or other illnesses, is still unclear. It’s important to know RealDose Nutrition. Weightloss Formula No. 1 does not contain adiponectin. Adiponectin is a hormone that modulates a number of metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid catabolism. Adiponectin is exclusively secreted from your adipose tissue (fat) (and also from the placenta in pregnancy) into the bloodstream and is very abundant in plasma relative to many hormones. Levels of the hormone are inversely correlated with body fat percentage in adults. Our product can, however help to regulate adiponectin and enhance weightloss.

  27. Sandra says:

    It’s really too bad. I don’t eat a lot. In fact I do watch what and how much I eat and I’ve been taking this for two weeks. so far I don’t see any improvement. I’m very discouraged. I’m also concerned as to why you have no real testimonies on here. To sell an item, that’s one of the selling features. I really haven’t seen any good testimonies. That’s even more discouraging.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Hi Sandra, thanks for sharing. I’m very sorry you are not getting the results you expected. Sometimes it does take some time for your metabolism to re-adjust and begin to respond. Keep in mind, most people gain weight from years of eating foods that are full of chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives, as well as making poor food choices. It’s not only much how MUCH people eat that makes them gain weight, but what and when they are eating also causes weight gain. All of this leads to hormonal imbalances. These imbalances can sometimes take time to reverse. We do have success stories posted on our site and throughout these articles. please use this link to view the stories :

    Hi there. I am very interested in what you have going here. I am a careful buyer especially when it comes to health. I wanted to know, I am on Wellbutrin, will your product have contraindications with it? (My weight gain has been largely due to being on antidepressants) I have been working on getting healthy and have lost quite a bit of weight but have a ways to go yet. Am looking for something to add to my new lifestyle to give me that upper hand.

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Hi Talaena,
      Thanks for your note and congratulations on your recent weightloss! To answer your question about your medication, we formulated RealDose to be safe, non-addictive, and without side effects. We are not aware of any potential food or supplement interactions.

  29. Mary says:

    Hi Dr. Steve,

    I just ordered RealDose Weight Loss Formula and I had a question about the Omega 3 (DHA & EPA) …. if your getting about 1,000 mg of the ‘correct’ type of Omega 3′s and eating natural foods with Omega 3′s everyday, do you think that would/could make up the difference for the 1 gram not in pill form?

    Also, in keeping with a healthy diet …. WHY does it hurt the intestines to eat raw hard veggies? I love veggies but even when broken down into small, small pieces … it still hurts?? I have talked to many people and not everyone has this problem?

    • Dr. Steve says:

      Hi Mary – Thank you for writing in. To answer your question regarding omega 3′s, much of the omega 3′s we consume through vegetarian sources (flax, avocado, walnut, etc.) are in an unactivated form (Alpha-Linoleic Acid) which our bodies must convert to active forms which the body can use (eicosapentaenoic acid). The only problem with this, is that our bodies cannot convert enough to meet our daily needs. This is why we still recommend supplementing with fish oil to meet the 2g daily or regularly consuming fish products, as these contain the active form.
      As far as the uncooked vegetables go, some do experience intestinal pain from the large amount of fiber present in raw vegetables. Some can adapt to this over time, but others will not. There are hazardous compounds in some vegetables like soy, beans and legumes known as lectins which can actually damage the intestines if not properly cooked off. Overall, eating raw vegetables can be a good choice, however there is little evidence that eating a strictly RAW diet provides much benefit to a person’s health.
      I hope that helps!

  32. Mathew says:

    Dr. Steve,

    I’ve researched all of the ingredients in your product and everything looks very promising. My situation is an intricate one being that I am a C4/C5 quadriplegic and obviously exercise has been extremely difficult thing for me. I am able to utilize my arm bike 20 to 30 minutes a day, but for the most part, that is the only exercise I’m really able to achieve. Weight loss has been extremely frustrating for me as I have tried extremely hard to eat well and I just don’t seem to lose any weight. Ironically, this also creates stress, which then creates sleep issues. With a healthy diet and intermittent fasting, do you feel that the product is right for me? Thank you very much.

    • Hi Mathew – Thank you for writing in. I’m sorry to hear about the past efforts to lose weight which have been unsuccessful. This product is formulated especially for people who are have barriers to weight loss related to certain hormones (Adiponectin, Cortisol, Leptin and Ghrelin). It’s common for these hormones to be imbalanced in those who have lacking sleep or mobility. So yes, I believe this product can be helpful for you! Especially with these plans that you’ve outlined (intermittent fasting and healthy diet).

While our product is formulated to not interfere with other medications or supplements, it is always best to check with your personal doctor regarding any possible medication interactions. We’ve had very few cases of any interactions, but it’s best to check with the practitioner who knows your personal health history. I hope that helps!

  34. Mike Berman says:

    In my opinion which is also based from my own personal experiences in reversing my own pre-type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and borderline obesity to my ideal weight and vibrant health is that if all else fails, the best way to reverse what I mentioned is to completely avoid all carbohydrates especially in the first two weeks to a month and then gradually eat some of the complex carbohydrates from vegetables and fruit that have very little or no detectable “sweetness” to it for at least six months to life in addition to eating a relatively high protein diet mixed with “healthy fats” such as in my opinion would be olive oil, coconut oil, butter, and yes, many saturated fats in addition to butter such as many different organic meats and make sure you are taking at least 3000 mg per day of DHA with EPA and other misc omega 3 fatty acids so your omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acid ratio is at most 3 to 1. And oh yes very important a potent probiotic in the morning and at night which can also come from fermented foods like sour chrout, kimchi and high quality yogurt with no sugar added. This is virtually low cost to do and it worked fabulously for me. The only downside to this is that it may take many months to several years to get to your ideal weight goal but in my personal opinion, it is really really worth it because if you remember, as difficult as it was to loose the weight and regain your health especially for people who have no patience, after reaching your ideal weight goal with this method, it will also be equally as difficult to gain back the weight and loose your vibrant health state in an equally short period of time as well because by doing what I did, I basically forced a healthy change and shift in many of my metabolic pathways and doing this makes it much more difficult for you body to reverse course over night or even over a several week period if you decided to cheat (and you probably will not want to anyway due to much lower cravings) over a holiday or food indulging period like a cruise or vacation.

    I really appreciate your personal and transparent answers to people’s questions.
    Is there a Weight Loss Formula No.2 under development? Also, please consider offering a savings package for people who want to purchase both the TG Omega 3s and the Formula No.1. Thank you

  36. Sue says:

    I started taking RealDose just before Thanksgiving and was very happy with the results however, I got injured on the job and the dr put me on steroids though I was careful about my eating I started gaining weight and could not stop the weight gain. I have been off the steroids approx 2 weeks and still have not been able to lose the weight I gained let alone get back on track. Please help! What can I do I am desperate. My husband is furious that I have spent this money and am not losing weight.

    • Hi Sue,

      Thank you for sharing your concerns. Sometimes, it takes several weeks and possibly longer for medications ( like steroids) to leave your body.We’re sorry you are not yet getting the results you expected. For some people, it does take some time for your body to begin to respond to the product and changes you are making. We recommend a slow and gradual weight loss of 1-2 lbs/week. This is what is best to prevent the weight from coming back. I don’t want you to get discouraged, because it sounds like you are doing things right. However, because it has taken a while for you to gain the weight, it will most likely take some time to get rid of. How long that is, I couldn’t say, but I have no doubts that with your continued efforts you will eventually see results. We are here to help every step of the way with advice, coaching and guidance so that you don’t feel like you are doing this alone. If you would like help on any area of weight loss which you may be struggling with, please let me know and I could arrange a time for one of our Health Specialists

  37. Maria says:

    Hi doc it all sounds amazing I’m big in nutrition and always researching why don’t you have a distributor in Australia ??

  38. Mata says:

    MD mass me up with steroids…..I did not need them.
    I gained 56 lbs and for 14 years tried everything…noting
    works. Please tell me what happen to my metabolick
    system? I’m very active person, been told that don’t eat
    much….I hate fried food, red meet and pork. Use only bake
    white meet ans steam vegetables……don’t tolerate lactose
    or grease.

    • Thank you, Mata, for sharing your story.

      It is hard to say what happened to your metabolism. However, there are many natural ways to raise your it: consistently get restful sleep, eat a healthful diet of small meals throughout the day, participate in resistance training, and reduce stress.

      You mentioned that you have been told the you don’t eat much. While you did not mention how many calories you consume each day, please keep in mind that a severely low calorie diet — below 1200 calories for sedentary women and 1400 calories for sedentary men — can slow your metabolism 12 – 20 percent. If this is continued over a long period of time, it may take months or even years, for your metabolism to re-adjust.

      Dr. A.J. Tomiyama, a researcher at the University of California-San Francisco psychology department, and her colleagues have found that calorie restriction can cause an increase your stress hormone – cortisol. Severe calorie restriction puts your body under stress. Cortisol has been found to cause extra weight around your midsection. The best way to overcome this is to eat a healthy balanced diet, like we have described in our Fatloss Fast Start Program, which comes free with every purchase of Weightloss Formula No. 1. Hope this has been helpful!

    hi doc, i was wondering if there was a table of how much to eat of the right foods and at the right times was avaliable, ive been on the nutition plan for 3 weeks but the foods are unavaliable in my country and wondered if you could help, ive been eating berrys but as im on a very low income i am unable to afford tabs on top of the food bill, also in a previous ad you mentioned about amega 3, what damage would it cause if i was to take the 6-8 tabs a day for the daily dose,

    • Hello Amnoonoo,

      We do not have a table available of how much to eat and timing of the different types of foods. However, we do have available our Healthy Life Program where we provide free health/weight loss education and support to current customers.

      As part of the Healthy Life Program you will receive:

      12 weeks of Complimentary Group Support with a Realdose Healthy Life Specialist
      1 Free Private Session to help with Goal Setting
      Encouragement and Support

    Why is it that they do not have a patch to put on the skin instead of a pill.I am sick of pills!
    It makes myself want to tape a rasberry to my arm. Giggle! I cannot afford your pills! My Doctor says things are
    better assorb through the skin than in the mouth. Molly Newberry

    • Hi Molly,

      Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! I am sorry that you find the price of our products a little too steep. However, we stand by our word when we say that we give our clients the best ingredients at the “Real Dose”. We do not cut corners as well as give our clients excellent support throughout their journey to better health. As for the statement ” things are better absorbed through the skin”, that statement is not entirely true. The skin, though semi-permeable, does not readily absorb external bodies even if they are “medicine”. Different kinds of medicines require different kinds of introduction into our bodies for them to be effective and efficient in doing their work. Our Weight Loss Pills are most effective when administered orally or via ingestion, this allows for absorption in the Gastrointestinal Tract and the effects are gradual allowing for better adjustment by the body. I hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  42. Jilly says:

    Im wondering if it will work for me I run 3 miles 3 days a week walk(fast) 3days a week and have gained 10 pounds over the last year I do not eat fast food I eat the right portions . I am very active have a physical job swim,water sports , skate and am 52 the weight I have gained is only in my tummy and no matter I do it will not go away do you think theses pills can help me I have never taken any type of pill for this problem ?

    • Hi Jilly,

      Thank you for sharing your concern with us! One of the reason why most folks stop losing weight is due to “muscle memory”. To be more exact, your body has already adjusted to the rigors you regularly put it through that it no longer becomes exercise or a fat burning one, but instead comes naturally to you like breathing or blinking. The amount of exercise you put in is admirable to most folks but at your age, it is quite remarkable! Given that you lead a very active lifestyle and already have a healthy diet in place, you may need to make changes within your body’s system. I suggest you give us a try as you can always get your money back with our “365 day Money Back Guarantee”. I sincerely hope our product makes a positive impact and do hope to hear of the results in the future! Have a healthy day!

  43. Linda says:

    My sister and I have been taking RealDose for 3 and a half weeks now. We have each lost 4 lbs, which is amazing because we had both been on a 5-month plateau with another diet pill product. The first thing we noticed was the effect of the RealDose on our blood sugar readings. We are both insulin-dependent diabetics and so we monitor our insulin levels very closely, at least 4 times a day. We also have had A1C scores at or under 6.0 for the last two years. We try to really space out our carbs over the course of a day, and we also eat a fairly low-carb diet. So, we were really surprised to see that once we started taking RealDose, we needed to inject less insulin to stay within safe ranges. This started the fist full day that we took RealDose. Gradually, over the last three weeks, we’ve been injecting less and less insulin. And then, in the last few days, we both separately noticed that the insulin that we do inject actually works much more quickly than ever before. Instead of taking 4 hours to get back to a normal blood sugar level, it is taking one hour. Unheard of. Our diabetic specialist told us that if, after two hours, our blood sugar level is 180 or below, that means we are doing really well. Now, with RealDose, after one hour we are down to, well, my sister was down to 103 today. And she had actually eaten 42 carbs of pizza (not her usual diet)–and just one hour later, she was back down to 103. Kind of seems like a miracle. We never expected this kind of result, and it gives us a lot of hope for the future. But I would strongly recommend that if any insulin-dependent diabetics try this supplement, monitor your blood sugar very carefully, because it will make a difference and you don’t want to inject too much insulin. Thank you so much, Dr. Sisskind.

    • Hello Linda,

      I am so glad for you and your sister that you have found such positive results with your insulin levels by taking Weight Loss Formula No. 1! I appreciate that you have taken the time to share your story. May you be blessed on your journey to optimal health.

  44. Jacqui says:

    Hi, I bought this product but find i never remember to take it 30 mins before eating, as I have young kids, life is so hectic. I end up not taking it at all, it doesn’t work in the bottle, I know. Can you advise when else I can take it if I forget before food? Is the reason before food for the hunger inhibitor? I don’t really eat so much and not so much over weight, 64kg but would like to lose a few kilos to feel healthier.Thanks

    • Hi Jacqui,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! Do not worry too much if you forget to take your pills 30 minutes before your meal. Just be sure to take it as soon as you remember. That said, I still do encourage you to take the weight loss supplement as close to the 30 minutes before meals as much as possible. This is because in the studies, the ingredients were administered 30 minutes prior to meals. So in an effort to keep things consistent with the studies we recommend taking the capsules 30 as directed. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  46. 37 Male, California says:

    A buddy of mine gave me a 30 day supply, said he didn’t care for it, I’ve been taking it 30 min. before my meals 3x a day, I have also stayed under 1900 calories per day and with just some minimal strength training and no cardio I have already lost 6 lbs. I really don’t know how much this product is responsible for or if it is just my low calorie diet that is responsible, but being that this was a risk free venture for me by trying this product I would say that I am definitely slimming down. Losing weight takes discipline and work, whatever benefits this product offers is just icing on the cake, pun intended.

    • Hi 37 Male, California,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your thoughts with us! I am glad to hear of your wonderful progress! I do hope your progress continues until you have reached your target weight. However, I would very much like to point out that your healthy diet and active lifestyle also play a part in your rapid weight loss. RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 just helped to push things along. I thank you again for sharing! Have a healthy day!

  47. JENN says:

    I was reading your clinical studies on adiponectin and it looked like your studies were only done on mice can you tell me where i can find the human studies. i just got a 30 day supple and i have been looking on your site on direction on how to take the supplement and came across the the studies.

    • Hi Jenn,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your thoughts with us! I dug deep into my notes and found a couple of references which I hope will help. They are posted below. As for the usage instructions on RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1, you are to take the pills 30 minutes before meals. However, should you forget to take them at the deisgnated time, do not fret and simply take the pill as soon as you remember.

      The references and links are:

      I hope this helps, Jenn! Have a healthy day!

  48. Patricia says:


    I just got my RealDose weight Loss No1 and I am very excited to start it. However , my husband is very concerned because we are trying to get pregnant. Would you please address this concern?
    Thank you.

    • Hi Patricia,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 is made with all natural botanical ingredients and is safe for everyday use. However, if you are undergoing fertility treatments or preparing your womb for pregnancy, I do advise you to first speak with your personal doctor before getting started. Though we are confident that our supplement is safe and is generally well tolerated, we have no sure way of knowing how you will be affected specifically as you are aiming to conceive. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  49. Betsy says:

    I’m on .50 mcg of synthroid daily. Is there any contraindication with using it with Real Dose? Thanks.

    • HI Betsy,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 is made with all natural botanical ingredients. It can be used in tandem with most medications, Synthroid included, but we do ask that you first speak with your personal doctor before getting started. Though we are confident that our formula is safe for every day use and is generally well tolerated, we have no sure way of knowing how you will be affected, specifically. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  50. Sandy says:

    Dear Dr. Sisskind,
    Is Real Dose free from all additives? I have a persistent rash on my legs that dermatologist seems to think is an allergic reaction to a drug or vitamin. I stopped all scripts and vitamins, but it has not helped. I think it may be
    Grovenar’s disease – but the rash only presents itself on my legs not upper body, so physicians and dermatologists
    insist it is an allergy.
    I am overweight and would like to try Real Dose and your other products, but if any type of cellulose or other fillers are used in making the product, especially tablets, I am afraid it may aggravate my rash.
    Also, I read that cold pressed supplements are the best because heat used in making vitamins and other supplements destroys the active ingredients in vitamin supplements. Is Real Dose made by cold press or with the use of heat?
    Thank you so much,
    Thank you so much,

    • Hi Sandy,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! A rash on the exposed parts of your body (arms, legs, neck and face) are quite difficult to diagnose as a lot of factors could cause the irritation. For example, the rash on our leg, could indeed be an allergic reaction to a surface it comes into contact with. It could have been started by an insect bite, an allergen in the wind, a new soap or fabric conditioner. That said, while I am certain that RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 is free of additives, it is made with all natural botanical ingredients and has been processed to include a fair amount of cellulose and heat. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  51. Sandy says:

    I have read that using Coconut oil for cooking or consuming it may assist in weight loss. Would taking it as tablet be effective too? Does Coconut oil contain healthy Omega 3′s and Omega 6?
    Thank you,

    • Hi Sandy,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your thoughts with us! Yes, coconut oil is one of the best sources of Omega fatty acids. It will help you in not only weight loss but also reduce your risk of inflammation greatly. However, I am not fairly certain that a tablet form of coconut oil would be effective as other ingredients such as binders, stabilizers and powdering agent may affect the oil’s quality. That said, I am confident the same placed in capsule form would allow it to impart its great effects. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  52. Tania says:

    I tried to place an order on the appropriate website but was informed that you do not accept orders from South Africa. Is that indeed the case? How come and are there alternatives for ordering?

    • Hi Tania,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! RealDose Nutrition ships to international destinations but, unfortunately, are unable to send our products to South Africa. Customs restrictions have made it difficult for our orders to reach clients and these are often sent back to us. We thank you for your interest but do apologize for this inconvenience. Have a healthy day!

  53. Angie says:

    I just order Real Dose today hope and pray it works I’m a caregiver at night and work with kids during the day. and don’t get enough sleep. I just turn 50. and weigh way….. to much. I take blood pressure pills and water pills too. I just can’t seem to lose weight I don’t eat much but lately my knees and feet have been in a lot of pain I feel it’s because the weight I’m carrying. I use to walk and go to the gym I hope this Real Dose helps me so I can workout again. By me taking Atenolol and Triamterene for my blood pressure will that interfere with Real Dose working? and should I take a Multi vitamin with it?

    • Hi Angie,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us! I completely understand where you’re coming from and do want you to know that we are here to help. Pain in the lower limbs can be a sign of long term inflammation and easing its burden is indeed a good way to relieve some of the discomfort your are feeling. Also, I encourage you to maintain your daily physical activity, if not increase them a tad, in order to not just lose weight but to maintain your range of motions.

      RealDose Weight Loss Formula No.1 is made with all natural botanical ingredients. it can be taken with other medications and supplements however, before you do so, we do highly encourage you to first speak with your personal doctor. The reason being, while we are confident that our product is safe for every day use and is generally well tolerated, we have no sure way of knowing how you will be affected specifically. That said, the weight loss formula is intended to help you reach your weight loss goals and adding a multivitamin is not necessary for the supplement to work but you may need it to meet your other nutrient requirements. Hope this helps! Have a healthy day!

  54. I purchased real dose nutrition pills in 2012 and I lost 65 pounds in 2 months . It truly blew my mind , I ate only low fat meals and I totally cut out all rice & pasta .. Just lean meats , vegetable ,cherries & black berries… So lets fast forward .. I’ve gain about 25 pounds since then , so I just purchased another bottle April 2015 and I’ve been taking it for a month & eating the same way that I did then. And I have lost nothing ? But I’m gonna hang in there … Sincerely, Pamela

    • Hi Pamela,

      Thank you for writing in and for sharing your experience with us! Yes, I too encourage you to hang in there and give the formula time to affect the needed changes. Weight loss is never easy and as we age it’s normal for our metabolism to slow down a little bit, so don’t be too hard on yourself and continue with your current diet and exercise. What is important is that you stay focused and are prepared to make small but permanent changes in your diet and lifestyle in order to not just see the weight go down but keep it off for longer. I do look forward to hearing more of your progress! Make it a healthy day!
