    I take a small punnet of raspberries each morning and combine with cinnamon and flaxseed with either soya yoghurt or porridge.
    Brilliant fruit and good for you in so many ways.
    I could go on but do google for a full list of benefits.

    I remembered the name of this supplement because of a thread about it on another diabetes forum a while ago. (google diabetes raspberry ketone warning), A regular poster reported that his wife suffered extreme feelings of jitteriness and anxiety when she took the supplement. There are quite a few comments from people who have used the supplement, not many positively and some said that glucose and or BP was raised. ( strangely most of these posts about experience seem to come from one time only posters, not sure what to make of that)

    The supplement has not undergone the safety trials or any trials that show it to work in humans.

    Raspberry ketone diet refers to a diet prepared from raspberry ketone which is a natural compound found in red raspberry. It help one deal with basically all the challenges that usually slow the weight loss process which include the hardship of managing cravings, boosting up your low metabolism and burning up more fat in your body.

    Please don't even go near this. People who are diabetic should not be doing this. If you do please go to your gp and tell them you intend to do the ketone diet. So they can keep an eye on you.
    Please be carefull i did this and suffered alot :(

    The origin of this thread was 3 years ago. there have been a number of scams involving raspberry ketones. Have a read up on the Low Carb diet thread in these forums to help with both weight loss and blood sugar control rather than wasting money on supplements.

    Your choice of course.. but usually if something sounds too good to be true....
    LCHF works as a lot of us can testify.. I'm nearly 7 stone down on it.

    I agree, as in my signature, my biggest loss over the shortest time frame was LCHF. I would suggest I am a stereotypical T2 in terms of response. My combination of raspberries, strawberries, blue berries, black berries, with several nuts, flax seeds with either full fat yoghurt or 35 grams of water cooked oats (if you can tolerate) keeps me full for between 6 and 7 hours (including a HiiT workout), and keeps a consistent weight.

    Your best bet for weight loss, dietary ketosis. You'll only get there via LCHF. If you don't get into dietary ketosis, you'll more than likely lose weight anyhow.

    I don't fully understand the mechanics behind the whole "raspberry ketone" phenomenon. But I do know that a lot of companies have made a lot of money by making a lot of people out of pocket.
