Hey Itty Bitty Queens,
I know it’s been a while since my last post. I promised myself to be more consistent with my blog posts once I got my uni workload out the way… so here I am!
Now, if you’re someone like me that has an extremely fast metabolism then you’ll understand how difficult it is to pile on a few pounds. The struggle is real! Having a fast metabolism may seem like an obstacle when it comes to reaching your weight gains but there’s ways around it.
During the middle of my weight gain journey I came across a stimulant that helped me throughout my weight gain journey. You’ve probably already heard about Apetamin & if you haven’t, that’s fine I’ll go into detail in a minute. I first came across Apetamin on YouTube, there are hundreds of videos on people’s experiences. It definitely looked like a product worth trying, especially because I was looking for a quick fix at the time. I watched reviews showing how people gained weight in weeks so I was eager to give it a go.
What is Apetamin?
The thought of consuming a stimulant to trigger weight gain may sound a bit worrying and trust me at the time I had my own concerns but that’s why research is so important. Apetamin is a vitamin syrup typically used for loss of appetite and poor eating habits. It is usually used to help patients with Anorexia but can be found in local stores and online. Apetamin contains Cyproheptadine, lysine and vitamins A, B, C, D, and E & doesn’t contain anything that may compromise your health so it is safe for your consumption.
It works by blocking the action of histamine, which basically means it makes you feel hungry and increase your appetite. Taking the recommended amount (5ml per day 3x a day) will increase your hunger throughout the day so it is important that you have access to a lot of food whilst on Apetamin. With extended use of the supplement, you can then increase your daily dosage to 10ml a day. It is important to know that the syrup itself doesn’t directly cause you to gain weight but instead it triggers hunger so you consume more calories on a day to day basis.
Sedation, sleepiness (often transient), dizziness, disturbed coordination, restlessness, excitation.
The most common side effect is drowsiness which tends to last 48 hours. I would advise you to start your daily dosage on a weekend or on a day where you aren’t working or being active in any way.
Apetamin should be used to assist you with your weight gain journey, especially for those that struggle with having a fast metabolism. It shouldn’t be used as a quick fix. It is very important that you carry on with weight training and cardio to avoid gaining weight in unwanted areas. This is something that happened to me whilst I started using Apetamin, I neglected my workout routines as soon as I saw progress and it resulted in some unwanted extra weight. To some, this may not seem as a big deal but in the long run it will become a bigger problem. So I advise you to continue working out on a regular basis and to avoid consuming fatty foods. Try to base your diet on healthy fats rather than foods high in refined sugars and carbs e.g ice cream, chocolate, etc.
Do not take Apetamin if:
- you are allergic to any ingredient in cyproheptadine
- you are breast-feeding
- the patient is a newborn baby or premature infant
- you are elderly and in poor health
- you have narrow-angle glaucoma; a peptic ulcer; an enlarged prostate; or bladder, stomach, or bowel blockage
So, would I recommend Apetamin? Yes! Apetamin is a great weight gain stimulant if used correctly. Whilst on Apetamin, I have gained 20lbs (9.07kg) in total, in the space of a year. Progress is quick and can be seen in a week if consumed properly. There are times where I’ve lost weight due to stress or illness, so I buy a bottle to regain the weight lost. It definitely helps you to increase your calorie intake and helps you gain the weight you need. There are hundreds of sources online that you can use to help you find out more about Apetamin.
It is sold online for around £15-25. I recommend sites such as Amazon or Apetaminworks.com if you are looking to purchase it online. It can also be found in Afro-Caribbean food shops for as little as £7. One bottle usually lasts around 7-9 days. After one bottle you can decide whether or not you are happy with the progress and may decide to purchase another. BUT please remember to continue working out, we aren’t trying to replace one health problem with another.
