Does Hydroxycut Really Work?

Hydroxycut is a former weight loss supplement that has recently given way to a newer version, Thermogenic Hydroxycut Advanced, after older versions were recalled amid an FDA warning of liver damage. The new Thermogenic Hydroxycut Advanced has removed some ingredients and added others. It claims to use all natural antioxidants and states that it can boost metabolism. In this way it can burn more calories and also increase energy. Ingredients include its key ingredient caffeine anhydrous (1, 3, 7 trimelthylxanthine), and acerola, blueberries, goji and vitamin C. Thermogenic Hydroxycut Advanced are rapid release caplets, and they recommend taking two daily. However, the product is not a meal replacement nor weight control product. A balanced diet and exercise regimen is still required. The Thermogenic Hydroxycut Advanced also is available in instant drink packets with wildberry flavor.

No - Another Apparent Snake Oil Weight Loss Pill
2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars

In order to lose weight with Hydroxycut my experience indicates that – IN CONJUNCTION with taking Hydroxycut – one must exercise aerobically for at least 30 minutes at least three times per week – while taking the PROPER (i.e., large & expensive) doses of Hydroxycut. Cutting one’s diet back to decrease carbs/calories and increase protein (also in conjunction with the physical exercise)also helps.

So if you do all the above, and you lose weight, does it have ANYTHING to do with Hydroxycut? Not likely. The baseline test for any purported weight loss drug/pill should require the product to induce significant weight loss WITHOUT any significant change in one’s diet or physical activity. If the pill cannot do this, it’s inherently NOT a true weight loss product.

Hydroxycut, in my opinion, ONLY concords with weight loss IN CONJUNCTION with increased physical exercise and reduced caloric/carbohydrate intake. With that caveat, how can one tell if Hydroxycut does anything but give you expensive urine?

I heard all sorts of good things about this product, so thought that I would try it. After 2 1/2 weeks I had to stop using it, because it dropped my blood pressure and no weigh was lost in the process.

I tried hydroxycut twice. It definitely gives you more energy and I have lost weight both times. The first time I lost 10 pounds, but gained it back afterwards because, since there’s a lot of caffiene in it, you have caffiene withdrawals when you run out. Since I was use to having a ton of energy, I felt like I had absolutely no energy when I tried working out without it, so I had less of a workout. The second time I tried it, I lost 15 pounds and did not gain it back. When I ran out, I drank crystal light energy before a workout instead to I still had the energy. I didn’t lose more weight afterwards, but I managed to keep off what I lost with hydroxycut. I would recommend using it until you reach your goal, then to just practice a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise.
