    I'm talking about Maximuscle ones. Which i know don't look like that as they are like horse tablets because they are so damn big lol.

    I got them from Amazon, bottle sealed and whatnot but someone mentioned green before?

    Mine are like a clear capsule with a sandy kinda colour in the clear capsule if that makes sense.

    I've been taking thermobol on and off for a couple of years now, so I'll share some of my knowledge with you..

    I've found that no two tubs of thermobol are the same, I think of them as "good" batches and "bad" batches. When I fisrt started on them, I never got a "bad" batch at all - may be coincidence, may be a recent thing that their quality control went to the dogs.

    They vary a lot in colour, but this not indicative of how well they work. I've had some that are pale/ beige in colour and some that are very dark green.

    I normally know about half an hour after taking one if they are any good or not. What I'm hoping for is my appetite to vanish and my energy levels to go through the roof, although the result is usually somewhere between that and nothing whatsoever. Some batches have done nothing for my energy and actually made me feel very nauseous and sick, others have made me feel great, helped achieve killer workouts and as a result I've lost over a stone in a month.

    It's very hit and miss I'm afraid to say. It's really discouraging to spend £30 on a jar of pills to find they're crap. It doesn't seem to matter where you buy them from either, I've had good and bad ones from ebay and Holland & Barrat.

    Hope I've been of some help.

    TBH while batch uniformity could be an issue I would argue that they have little or no efficacy in general and what you're actually seeing now is your energy levels, mood, appetite, etc naturally waxing and waning based on other environmental factors.

    I know exactly what you're saying, but I'm not an idiot (forgive me), and it is not environmental factors that determmine whether the tablets work or not. I'd atually laugh at the prospect. The sudden burst of energy I get from a "good" Thermobol pill is not coincidence, I once took two my mistake (took one first thing in the morning then in my haze forgot I'd taken it, only happened once), but I realised what I'd done when I was sweating, shaking and grinding my teeth. It was awful.

    I'm normally pretty lively anyway, but they certainly give me that big kick up the ass I need for an intense, sustained workout. I can run for an hour on the treadmill having taken it, I honestly wouldn't manage 35 mins without, and those 35 mins would be painful! They work brilliantly for me, but they aren't cheap. So I'm now wondering whether the gamble of whether they'll be any good is worth the £31 I pay for them.
