What You Should Know
GNC Total Lean Burn 60 claims dieters can lose 60% more weight taking this supplement than they could with healthy diet and exercise. There is a tab for Clinical Studies in the description as well; leading us to believe GNC has funded a study to test the ingredients. The only thing we found under the Clinical Studies tab was a graph showing more calories were burned when dieters took GNC Total Lean Burn 60, but no link to the study results was included.
List of Ingredients
Guarana Seed Extract, Black Tea Leaves Extract, Ginger Root Extract, MegaNatural Grape Skin and Seed Extract, MegaNatural, Dill Weed Extract, Dextrose, Natural Vanilla Flavor, Sucralose.
The ingredient list brings about a few questions about GNC Total Lean Burn 60 from the start. Why is there sugar and a sugar alternative in a tablet supplement and why is natural vanilla flavor added unless to mask a horrible taste? We are clearly not going to get answers to these questions, so let’s take a look at the ingredients.
Guarana Seed Extract is a stimulant that increases heart rate and blood pressure. Diet supplements commonly include stimulants as a means of boosting metabolism. Black tea leaves extract is also a stimulant, so GNC Total Lean Burn 60 packs quite a caffeine-like punch.
Dill weed and ginger both have digestive properties, but clinical researchers claim these ingredients offer no metabolic benefit for dieters. We have no idea why digestion would need to be supported when using a fat burner unless one of the other ingredients commonly causes stomach upset or the high level of caffeine causes nausea and these ingredients are added to counteract that effect.
Despite adding natural vanilla flavor, dextrose and sucralose, dieters still complain about the taste of the GNC Total Lean Burn 60 supplement. Comments on the supplement include dieters who complain about jitters, shakes, headache, stomach upset and severe nausea.
GNC Total Lean Burn 60 sells for $34.99 in stores and $24.99 online.

There are too many complaints of negative side effects for us to support the GNC Total Lean Burn 60. While some nausea is common when taking stimulants, especially for dieters who are sensitive to caffeine, a few dieters complained of severe nausea. We believe weight loss should be simple and no painful.
