Cardio Cuts is a supplement that gives the body a one-two punch, according to the product description. NDS Nutrition claims the ingredients work as a pre-cardio (pre-workout?) and as a thermogenic. There is a complete list of ingredients on the official website, but the ingredient list is a LOT longer than most thermogenic supplements.

Product Features

After listing all the ingredients in Cardio Cuts we realize this is a pre-workout shake and a thermogenic fat burner. In the fat burner category we see caffeine, synephrine, guarana and green tea. We have no idea how much of each is included but we know the total of all the stimulant ingredients is 338 mg. Caffeine is first, but there are multiple ingredients on the list standardized for caffeine – so the caffeine impact could be quite strong.

Cardio Cuts is not your typical fat burner. This supplement is in the bodybuilding category – not the weight loss category. Some of the ingredients are only found in pre-workout and athletic supplements and the ingredient list as a whole is likely confusing for most dieters. There are some pretty big claims in the product description and none of the claims are backed up with clinical research. We also found a HUGE warning on the bottom of the product description page. The warning should be read in detail before buying or trying Cardio Cuts.

Advantages

  • Cardio Cuts contains common fat burning ingredients.
  • The formula is listed online.
  • The product is available for sale online.

Disadvantages

  • Cardio Cuts is not for the average dieter.
  • The formula for the supplement is designed for bodybuilders.
  • None of the ingredient amounts are listed online.
  • The product warning is long and detailed.
  • May not be safe for dieters with health problems of any kind.

Conclusion

Cardio Cuts is a fat burner – that is certain – but it looks more like a bottle of pre-workout ran into a bottle of fat burner and a combination supplement was created. There is some missing information, like the total amount of caffeine per dose. We suggest the company redo the ingredient list with a little more information.

    I’m worried about taking this with a history of hypothyroid. It could be acting up again due to my tiredness and weight gain. I know cardio cuts will affect my thyroid, but I do not know if it will affect it poorly. Any comments??

    Yesterday was the first time I tried cardio cuts. I used full scoop and liked the extra energy. Today I had protein shake first then I only used 3/4 scoop and it gave me extra energy to get through a tough long workout but I have been very dizzy the rest of the day!!! I have had plenty of fluids today but still can’t get rid of this dizzy spell. Anyone experience this ???

    This product has made me GAIN weight, GNC said to try this for weight loss and toning, I told them exactly what I wanted and I am working out 5 days a week and eating what I am supposed to, if you are not weight training to become a bodybuilder do NOT buy this

    I feel full of energy after taking it, but start losing energy during my work out. Ever since I started taking it, I’ve felt too lazy to finish my work outs and feel like I don’t do as good as I should be. Is laziness one of the side effects?

    I am concern about this product, I love it. But the guy from the store gave cardio cuts and also told me to mix it with CLA pills to get better loss weight results. So far, 4 day, no problems with nothing just headache. Should I continue?

    Ive been taking Cardio cuts for about 3 weeks now and can tell a difference as far as toning. I been staying in around 190 lbs. I also drink protein shacks after my workouts to gain mass as well. For me i think it works great. Plenty of energy, good pump and helping burn my unwanted fat. And no unwanted side effects for me!

    Ive been using Cardio Cuts for almost 3 weeks. I love the energy boost and have noticed significant inches lost. Im not stuck on numbers so dont know amount of weight lost or inches but My belt has gained 2 notches comfortably. I take it 10 min before a weight training work out followed by cardio work out. First time I used it my legs were starting to cramp imediately but by 10 min into my cardio my energy went up cramp went away and breathing slowed and the cardio got easier. Finally kicked in.

    Had a sample yesterday 15 mins prior to my weights session. Must say, taste great, and felt the energy levels increase. It intrigued me enough to do the research today. Not completely sold yet, but definitely curious to read more.

    I just started using this the other day. I don’t feel a huge boost in my energy maybe a light nudge. I’ve been stuck at the same weight for a while now and it has helped a little so far. Any one else think the after taste is terrible?

    I have been using cardio cuts for 2 weeks – it definitely boosts my weight training. If I have it on an empty stomach, 1st thing in the morning before a run I get quite nauseous at about 2.5km in.
    With so much caffeine, it has also caused a spike in anxiety symptoms. Those susceptible to anxiety – start low and go slow.

    So far I love the product I’ve only been taking it a week, I’m using it for the toning mainly and I can tell a difference, but I also wanna gain muscle so does anyone know if I can drink like a weigh protein shake after a workout while taking this?

    Drink casein protein before bed. Casein protein is a slow digestiving amino acid that flows through your blood and muscles as you sleep, it’s natural and works!

    I’ve been using this for about 1 month now and it certainly gives me a buzz and helps me push through my laziness but I get really really bad headaches whenever I use this,no matter how many bottles of water I drink. Does anyone else get this?

    [Reply]

    Kelly

    It’s probably the aspartate– if you’re sensitive to aspartame, you’ll also get headaches with this!

    [Reply]

    t

    Yes, this probably means your body is sensitive to high levels of caffeine, i recommend taking an Advil before you start your workout or discontinuing the weight loss supplement, unless you can take the pain, go for it!

    I have been drink this for just 4 days and after that I got the worst headache I have ever experimented. It was just for one day. I wonder if it is normal while your body get used to or you have to stop drink it immediately?

    My husband and I have been using this product for 3 months. We’ve tried other pre-workout supplements and they are ok for him but they usually contain creatine which is terrible for me. I love this Cardio Cuts because it has a thermogentic and does not contain creatine. I use it 2x per day. Once before my workout and once before work as a caffeine substitute. So far we have both seen significant fat loss and increased muscle definition. Keep in mind we are both on strict diet and workout routines. This is not a miracle diet but rather a highly effective pre-workout supplement. I highly recommend this product to everyone. Just be mindful of when you take it. If I take this product and I don’t burn it off quickly with workout/work it makes me extremely irritable for about 30 minutes.

    This reply seems generated to help sell the product. Creatine is pretty much impossible to be terrible for anyone.. do your research. creatine is derived from most meats, and extremely beneficial.

    If you have kidney problems exogenous creatine can be “terrible” for you. My doctor told me specifically to not to take any supplements containing creatine because it will further compromise my kidney functioning. Please be cautious when advising people about the safety of supplements

    any body else get really itchy hands? kind of tingley?

    [Reply]

    julio

    Yes itchy and tingly

    [Reply]

    Dom

    It’s the beta alanine. It causes a warm tingling sensation. Beta alanine helps lower your lactic acid levels and reduce muscular fatigue.

    [Reply]

    Tyler

    It is the Beta-Alanine. Most people get tingly when taking it.

    I have been using the product for about 3 weeks now. I get very tingly skin, as if I was using a tanning lotion with a tingle product at the salon. It impacts my face the most. I also find the quicker I drink it, the more intense the tingle. Oh well! It’s working :)

    I use it everymorning. While if find it does not help me very much for a workout drink,(i use Super Pump for that) it does do well for a daily weight loss supplment. I do sometimes sweet a bit from it. So far I’ve lost 10lbs in one month. 220 down to 210. My GF uses it as well and also has seen about the same results. (Nope not putting her weight down lol.)

    this will not make you gain muscle or fat. Using this with the combination of cardio, i lost 35lbs in 40 days. I went from 205 to 170.

    Does this really burn fat in women or make you thick?

    [Reply]

    Jenn

    Burns fat because there is no creatine which would add on a lot of water weight. I was taking jacked before and once I stopped and started taking cardio cuts I noticed that I was toning out a lot more and lost 6 pounds in 12 days – I would suggest using the my fitness pal app too for recording what you eat.

    [Reply]

    Jean

    Yes creatine makes you hold water weight, but this doesnt prevent you from loseing fat, just means your heavier from the excess water being held around your muscles…

    You just drop creatine before a competition/summmer and you’ll drop the water weight. (education is important before you reply)

    I take it on an empty stomach and it really doesn’t affect me you just sweat really hard and then you’re starving afterwards. Try getting a hard boiled egg.

    Hi Yesym
    I take Cardio Cuts about 25-30mins before my 6am workouts and before my weights training session and it’s perfectly fine. My body seems to absorb it super fast. Get a great workout – get the boost right when i hit the gym and have not had any side effects at all.
