I have 11 sessions left on the Varian machine and have noticed no side effects at all. Other than they make you drink decaf coffee instead of regular. I arrive at 8:25 am, change, on the table at 8:30, off at 8:35, change back and out the door.
I have lost 10 pounds because I actually seem to have more energy so am working some fat off. I'm working from home in a 2 story house and go and down the stairs at least 20 times a day. And drinking lots of water.
