What You Should Know
Fat Magnet takes a slightly different approach to weigh loss. Instead of working to suppress appetite and boost the metabolism, this product promises to “reduce the transit time of foods in the digestive tract”, so fat is eliminated from the body instead of getting absorbed. It claims that it will bind the fat into a mass that is too large to digest to effectively reduce the amount of fat in your diet. While some online retailers do suggest a “sensible” weight loss management plan and exercise, the suggestion is that Fat Magnet will remove the fat from your food so you don’t have to cut down on calories or fat to lose weight.
We are highly skeptical of any weight loss supplement that does not recommend a low calorie, low fat diet along with daily exercise in combination to most effectively reach your weight loss goals. We are also leery of a product that makes big promises without offering a shred of clinical proof that the formula will perform as suggested. The product is sold through a host of online retailers and physical stores nationwide for a reasonable price. However, we will have to take a closer look at the formula to see if it can deliver on any of the promises it makes.
Fat Magnet includes chitosan, psyllium husk, malic acid, vegetarian lipase and aloe vera.
The two ingredients that appear to deliver on the product’s promises are chitosan and psyllium husk. These two ingredients are becoming common ingredients in weight loss supplements, although their effectiveness has yet to be proven.
Chitosan is said to regulate cholesterol levels and absorb fat so it doesn’t get into the body. While there may be some evidence to suggest that this ingredient can have a positive impact on cholesterol levels, it remains to be proven as a weight loss supplement. Psyllium husk is used in some weight loss supplements because of its laxative properties. However, there is no clinical evidence to suggest that a laxative will be effective in reaching long term weight loss goals.
At the time of this review, a one month supply of Fat Magnet sells for about $14. Unfortunately, we were unable to find any sort of free trial offer or money back guarantee on this product.
- The product is reasonably priced.
- A complete ingredient list is provided on the company website.
- Fat Magnet does not contain a proven fat burner or appetite suppressant.
- The included ingredients have not been proven effective in weight loss.
- We were unable to find a money back guarantee.
It certainly sounds attractive to find a supplement that simply removes the fat from our daily diet. However, there is no clinical evidence to suggest that Fat Magnet can do anything of the kind. We believe that consumers should look for weight loss supplements that contain a proven fat burner and appetite suppressant for best results. Fat Magnet doesn’t appear to include either one.
