What kind of diet should I use to ensure best results when using Grenade®?
Fortunately, Grenade® not only helps you burn more fat and give you energy but will also decrease your appetite, so that it will be easier to stick to a good diet and avoid cravings for junk.
For best fat-loss results, cut down on all sugars in your diet and decrease your intake of starchy carbohydrates (so eat less bread, pastries, potatoes, rice, pasta, corn, etc). Also, eat lean proteins at each meal and snack (like fish, lean meat, chicken, eggs and protein supplements). Keep adjusting your sugar and starchy carbohydrates downward
until you are consistently losing weight.
To further decrease hunger and for general health and gut function, eat plenty of green and other non-starchy vegetables.

Can I take Grenade® if I have high blood pressure?
If you have diagnosed high blood pressure and/or are on blood pressure medication we of course have to advise that you talk to your doctor about using any supplement product, including Grenade®.
Grenade® contains caffeine – a similar amount to a strong cup of coffee – which may increase blood pressure (although the elevation in blood pressure caused by caffeine is described by scientists as ‘slight’).
Grenade® also contains Bitter Orange Peel, which has been shown in some studies to moderately increase blood pressure, although the most recent scientific research from the International Journal of Medical Sciences showed no increase in blood pressure or heart rate.
Importantly, if you don’t drink coffee or tea or you are sensitive to caffeine, then proceed according to the directions and only take one capsule when you first use the product to assess your tolerance.
