What You Should Know
Healthy N’ Fit Advanced Fat Metabolizing Nutrients claims to increase fat burn and weight loss with mega-doses of nutrients. The product description states the ingredient quality has been lab tested, but there is no mention of clinical studies to support weight loss claims. There could be 100 ingredients in the supplement, but if those ingredients are not proven to increase weight loss or fat burn, the number is useless.
List of Ingredients
Choline, Inositol, Methionine, L-Carnitine, Chromium Picolinate.

The ingredient list is long but there are only a few ingredients worth mentioning in the formula. Chromium Picolinate is a known appetite suppressant that may help control blood glucose levels. This is important when dieting because carbohydrates can cause a rise in blood glucose followed by a huge dip. This dip can cause cravings for more carbohydrates. If the blood glucose level is controlled, the dip does not occur and hunger is not as pronounced.
Diuretics are a huge part of Healthy ‘N Fit Advanced Metabolizing Nutrients. Diuretics work by dehydrating the body to reduce bloating and water retention. Many weight loss supplements will include one or two diuretics, but Advanced Metabolizing Nutrients contains eight diuretics. Dehydration from diuretics can cause potassium levels to plummet. Most of the time, potassium is included in a diuretic supplement to counteract the drop in potassium, but this product has no potassium. If potassium drops, severe side effects can result.
Iodine may be included to support thyroid function. If the dieter has an underactive thyroid, the iodine may help boost metabolism, but this support will only help a select few dieters.
Healthy ‘N Fit Advanced Metabolizing Nutrients sells for less than $10 a bottle. This is another indication that the product is not up to par with proven weight loss supplements. It takes money to include the best, proven ingredients. At less than $10 a bottle, the cheapest ingredients have to be used.
- All ingredients are easy to find online.
- Chromium may help to control appetite.
- No fat burning ingredients.
- Far too many diuretics.
- No potassium to replace that which is lost during diuretic use.
There are simply too many diuretics in the Healthy ‘N Fit Advanced Metabolizing Nutrients to support any fat loss or weight loss claims. The dieter will see a drop on the scale, but they may also suffer from the unhealthy side effects associated with diuretic usage. Diuretics are often reserved for dieters who have other conditions leading to water retention.
