Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup #Review #weight loss


MY REVIEW-I am sure all of you know I am dieting. Trying to lose weight, however you want to put it:) But I don't want to lose it real fast just to gain it back. No crash diets or magic pills that will make me lose the weight but starve at the same time. That is why I was excited to try the Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup. I know, I had to double check and see what exactly Yacon Syrup was first:)



What is Yacon Syrup?
Yacon Syrup originates from the Yacon plant (pronounced yah-KON) of the Andes Mountains in Peru and has been part of the Andean diet for hundreds of years. The yacon juices are extracted from the roots of the yacon plant, then filtered and evaporated in a process very similar to the way Maple syrup is made. The Yacon plant looks similiar to a sweet potato.  

So, basically this is from a plant that looks like a sweet potato. And yes, it really does look like a potato. Roots and all:) But it has been converted into a syrup form for this product. This is something new that I had never heard of before but I was game to try it. When my bottle came in I waited to start until the next day. That way I could go from Tuesday and go for two weeks. I barely had enough syrup to finish but it was good for that period. Worked out real good. The first time I had it, I was somewhat surprised. The taste is kind of sickening sweet. Very thick and almost like molasses. The first time I had it before my breakfast and only water. Every time after that I made sure to have tea with it. Just kind of funny tasting.

As far as the results, I was impressed. After taking it for one week I had lost 1 lb. But after using it two weeks I lost 3 lbs total. This isn't all I do for losing weight obviously as I exercise and try to eat healthy overall but I think this did help quite a bit. Normally I am only losing a little bit a week but while taking this before every meal I found myself eating less and feeling so much better. It was well worth having to combat the taste when the results started piling up.

This is a product I was very interested in and I liked how well it worked. The results I had may not be for everybody but then again, you could do even better than me:) If you are looking for something to help you along in your weight loss journey, I would urge you to look at this. The product can be bought on Amazon or you can look at the Hermosa Peak webpage. .

Interesting product. I have lost three pounds in two weeks without anything like this so it makes me wonder if you still would have lost weight just exercising?

I find many of these products produce a placebo effect... Having tried everything under the sun myself, and finally losing all my weight and maintaining it now for 1.5 years I have learned that there is no secret sauce... Just love yourself enough to make the right choices in fitness and food. I lost 60 pounds in 6 months eating clean and fitting in 30-60 minutes of physical activity every day. Fab job on the 3 pounds!

This is no miracle syrup folks, exercise is KEY! I'm sure this goes a long way to ensuring you have the proper nutrients to make your exercise more efficient but it won't produce results on it's own - just like everything else.
