What You Should Know
The Core 4 weight loss system is designed for people who have difficulty losing weight. Dieters use four supplements to increase weight loss. An optional online membership is available to track progress as part of a global weight loss community. There is no pricing information for the online membership, but there is reference to sharing your profile for new “leads”. We assume users gain some monetary reward for referring new members who purchase the Core 4 products. The four supplements included in the Core 4 plan are Cheat, Lean, Accelerate and Flush.

The four supplements in Core 4 claim to reduce calories consumed, boost metabolism, supply a healthy source of amino acids and protein and flush the body of toxins and waste. These claims are not proven with clinical research, but some of the ingredients in the formulas have clinical backing.
Cheat contains one ingredient, Konnyaku powder. This ingredient is more widely known as konjac root or glucomannan. Glucomannan is a water-soluble fiber used as an appetite suppressant. Fiber should be taken at least 30 minutes before a meal to suppress appetite. Sprinkling fiber on a meal will not stop the dieter from eating the entire meal.
Lean is packed with vitamins and amino acids, but there are no ingredients listed for the shake mix. With 10 grams of protein and 44 calories, it is clear protein powder is the source of amino acids.
Accelerate contains proven ingredients like chromium and green tea extract, but the green tea is part of a proprietary blend with other stimulants, so we have no idea how much is in the formula.
Flush is a colon cleansing supplement with common ingredients like senna and dandelion root. These increase bowel movements and urination, fooling the dieter into believing weight loss is attributed to the other three supplements.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- Some formulas include proven ingredients.
- Laxatives and diuretics are not safe for use as weight loss aids.
- Proven ingredients are included in proprietary blends.
The Core 4 system covers every aspect of weight loss supplementation, but it does so with proprietary blends so the dieter has no idea what they are really taking.
