Animal Cuts Review - Does This Supplement Really Work? Are fad diet ingredients and adverse effects deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 2.8 / 5.0

animal-cuts-product-imageWhy are people talking about Animal Cuts? We did one of our in-depth reviews, focusing closely on the ingredients, side effects, scientific research and level of customer service. Moreover, we examined plenty of user responses posted all over the web. Finally, we summed up all the info we found to give you the bottom line.

EDITOR'S TIP: Substitute Animal Cuts with a proven testosterone booster such as Pronabolin for better results.

What You Need To Know

To start, Animal Cuts is touted as a “complete cutting stack” and it’s geared toward men. This supplement is made by Universal Nutrition. The ingredients are caffeine anhydrous, guarana, kota nut, raspberry ketones, evodiamine, green tea extract, coleus forskohlii, L-tyrosine, dandelion root, coffee bean, uva ursi leaf, juniper berry, DMAE, huperzine A, magnolia bark, ashwagandha, hoodia gordonii, synephrine, naringin, ginger root, cayenne, buchu leaf and cha de bugre. It claims to shred body fat, support healthy appetite, boost thermogenesis and reduce excess water weight.  For maximum results, you need to take two packs per day.

Animal Cuts was released back around 2006 and it’s available online for $49.95. This product does not contain any ephedra and there is plenty of customer feedback posted on distributor websites like Amazon, but read on…

Fad Diet Ingredients – “Watch Out?”

The first thing we looked at were the Animal Cuts ingredients. According to our Research Editor, “It’s clear that Animal Cuts relies on some fads, which include hoodia gordonii and raspberry ketones. These have not been proven to aid with fat loss, improve energy levels or increase strength.”

One customer said, “It didn’t work much for me, no faster weight-loss than hard work cardio and weight lifting.”

Another user stated, “I didn’t notice any change in my body fat at all.”

Scroll below for one of the best products we’ve seen over the last year.

Adverse Effects – “Be Careful”

Judging from the user feedback we found online, there are numerous complaints regarding Animal Cuts side effects. One customer commented, “It literally made me sick to my stomach! I took the product and 20 minutes later I was doubled over in pain.”

“I had to discontinue using this product after speaking with my doctor about the heartburn it was giving me after every use,” said another person.

After doing plenty of research, we have concluded that if there is a certain facet of a supplement that is quite troublesome (fad diet ingredients, too many adverse reactions, no real science) the odds of prolonged success are not good. In other words, if Animal Cuts does cause side effects in a lot of customers, this could be a major problem.

The Science – “Clinical Evidence?”

From what we could gather from the official website, there have not been clinical studies conducted with Animal Cuts. Therefore no solid proof is provided to support this fitness supplement. Since we at DietSpotlight need to see actual science that proves the formula works as claimed and if that’s not available we have trouble getting behind it.

The Bottom Line – Does Animal Cuts Work?

If you just wait one more minute, I’m sure you’ll be interested in what we found. There are numerous ingredients used in Animal Cuts packs, but we did not find any solid proof that this supplement helps cut fat, improve endurance, or helps you achieve a leaner physique. In fact, there are some fads to worry about. Not to mention, users have complained of no real results.

If you really want to ignite energy levels, improve stamina and enhance your physique, we suggest a supplement that uses clinically proven ingredients, comes with great customer service and is backed by plenty of positive user reviews.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2015 is one called Pronabolin. This supplement provides nine ingredients that are clinically proven to help you reclaim vitality, improve strength and naturally boost testosterone levels. Also, there is no discussion of unpleasant side effects and customer comments found online express people are seeing excellent results.

The makers of Pronabolin are so confident in their product they’re offering every customer a 120-day money-back guarantee and multiple-bottle discounts.

  • Animal Cuts can be purchased conveniently via the official website.
  • Does not contain Ephedrine and caffeine.
  • Animal Cuts contains bitter orange extract, which is said to assist with metabolic rates.


  • The official website does not appear to provide a money-back guarantee.
  • The official website lacks consumer testimonials.
  • Animal Cuts does not endeavor to suppress appetite.
  • Animal Cuts is really only marketed toward bodybuilders and serious weight lifters.
  • The official website does not offer a free trial sample of Animal Cuts.


Overall Animal Cuts comes across as a fat reduction supplement primarily suited for bodybuilders. While this product does not contain harsh ingredients such as caffeine and Ephedrine, the manufacturers also fail to offer valid clinical evidence to support their product claims. When all is said and done, Animal Cuts would be more marketable if the official website offered some customer testimonials, a free trial sample of the product or at least a money-back guarantee. It's wise to consult your physician prior to using a supplement like Animal Cuts.

    i am 40.. started the product… initailly when i.e as per recommendation one on empty stomach early morning, i started to vomit within 10 min. but when i took after 6 hours i.e around 4 pm it was ok…
    it this a normal symtom…?


    Your Name

    You must take it with a small meal, its to strong on an empty stomach if your body isn’t used to it. When I started my cycle I took one packet the first 2 days and then moved on to 2 packets on the third day. Once your body gets used to it you should be fine. Just make sure you eat something small right before or after you take the pills. Good luck

    For any other 19 year old kids on here wondering about this product. Holy shit you are NINETEEN! You are young enough to burn all that fat off without this product. Unless you have a thyroid problems, get off your lazy teen ass and workout, eat right, and you will get the body you want. This product is meant for the serious lifters who have lots of water weight and simple fats to burn off, not because you want a beach bod to impress your crush.


  • 16

    The author should read the label on all the Animal line products, to include Cuts. There is a money back guarantee on all.

    is it ok for women take animal cuts…need to lose 25 lbs by July?

    Animal Cuts is not a hormone. The FDA took care of all that back when Nor/Andro went the way of ephedra. Animal Cuts does contain caffeine, in the form of Guarana (a nut/seed) and Green Tea Extract. It also contains other ephedra analogs like synephrine contained in the bitter orange.
    Animal cuts are NOT a steroid, they are a stimulant/diuretic mainly, you will be losing a lot of water. Women may want to be more mindful since they may be smaller and made up of proportionally more water. (Though you’re most likely leaner and in better shape than a lot of skinny-fat dudes) Just remember, the dose is staying the same whether you’re 6’4 260 (me) or 5’3 110, so proportionally, you may want to try one, unless you’re taking it right before your workout at 330. I did notice if I took mine at 5pm before my workout, I couldnt get to sleep till about 3am, so be mindful of your dose time. I ended up moving my workouts to lunch time which helped me burn down well before my 6PM eating curfew

    I’m a female and i was wondering if animal cuts are a steroid? i don’t want to gain any more muscle, i just want to lose the weight over my muscle. Will this make me bigger in muscle? Also, after i stop taking it, will i gain the weight back?



    Like its easier to gain muscle than lose weight


  • 21

    Animal cut, it’s meant for pro bodybuilder sry to say coz u combo with others n this pax acts as a support. I been using it for some time already n u can see results in just 2 weeks I shred the fats in my body n getting more energy to pump harder. Your food diet consist on high protien based foods n eat any vegetables. N 10mins of intense cardio walk don’t run. U wanna burn fats not muscles. N u workout 5days a week 45mins a session. I win competition with this animal cut. Sometime this product don’t suit everyone. Coz everyone is different. My combo on this 1 month before my comp is stenzolo,deca and animal cut. Don’t take it if ur not a serious bodybuilder. Normal guys pls stick to diets n workouts

    Phillip Dupree

    I just started taking Ripped and Peeled, I workout at 4am and Im at work when it calls for me to take my second packet of pills, do I have to workout after taking the pills or can i just take them, I run in the afternoons at around 1:30 should I just wait to take it then?



    I have taken this supplement several times and it is not necessary to workout directly after taking the second packet. It can just be taken. I like this supplement and does give good results if you put the work in. With any supplement you get out of it what you put into it.

    It is alright to take a protein, infact it is still a great idea to continue to take protein while on the cuts.


  • 33

    are you joking?

    You will never, ever get cut without cardio and a healthy diet.



    u can get cut without doing cardio…please

    compound lifts and a clean diet

  • 41

    mario molina

    there is no powder form you have to break open the pills


  • 42

    Hi i’m 19 years old and weight 128kg. What kind of animal cuts must i use, will animalcuts work on me and how many kg will i lose in one month?



    well its gonna help you loose around 15 20 pounds in a months depends on the workout u gonna do n diet u gonna take…i;ll suggest to 1 hour cardio 6 days a week n take a non-carb diet…..results would b better if u start cardio a week earlier before hitting da pak…..some abs excercise certainly help



    What kind of animal cuts? There is only one kind…and you are very young, young enough to still have a very strong motabalism, be careful when taking these pills. I am on my second can. I lost 12 lbs on my first can and I am 26. Just watch your diet though, this is not an appetite suppressent.


  • 43

    Hi have been taking animal cuts for 3 days now and just had a quick question..

    1. Is stacking animal cuts with a pro hormone a good or bad idea and why?

    2. How long does it take for you to see results with animal cuts and how long does it take to get into your system?



    It is not a very good idea. To tell you the truth pro hormones (oral steroids, I do hope you understand they are steroids) are very very harsh on the body and you should not be forcing your body to try to deal with even more supplements.
