Hydroxycut is a “weight loss formula” that comes in a capsule form. This diet medication is claimed to curb the user’s hunger, while increasing metabolism and cutting calories. Hydroxycut aims to boost energy levels and maintain the dieter’s blood sugar. As with many diet plans, supplements and programs, the user is supposed to maintain a healthy diet and fitness regimen while taking Hydroxycut to lose excess body fat. Supposedly this will increase the success of the diet medication. The user should ideally drop up to three times more weight than he/she would have with proper eating and exercise alone.

Hydroxycut is claimed to be the “number one selling” weight loss drug in the USA, and is also marketed in 70 other countries across the globe. The official Hydroxycut website offers a four-step research program that can be downloaded to reveal the research that was done with Hydroxycut in the past. This diet product is endorsed by doctors like Jon Marshall and Nick Evans, who’ve both used the product themselves. All ingredients found in Hydroxycut are said to be listed on the product container, and were also made in North America. The official website states that numerous celebrities, models, athletes and others take advantage of Hydroxycut.

List of Ingredients

A few key ingredients listed in Hydroxycut are green tea (creates heat by burning calories and incorporates EGCG and caffeine), Garcinia Cambogia (an Indian herb that normalizes blood sugar) and Gymnema Sylvestre (herb from the Southern India rainforests that aims to promote normal blood sugar).

No full list of all ingredients is given.

Product Features

Hydroxycut is essentially a diet capsule that endeavors to assist with the weight loss process by boosting metabolism, burning calories, increasing energy levels, maintaining blood sugar and curbing hunger cravings. The primary active components found in Hydroxycut are Gymnema Sylvestre, Garcinia Cambogia and green tea extract. These key ingredients aim to normalize blood sugar and create heat to burn calories. It’s meant to be taken orally with eight ounces of water one hour prior to eating. A one-month supply costs $49.95 and contains 60 caplets.

Advantages

  • Hydroxycut can be easily purchased in most drugstores and superstores.
  • The Hydroxycut website offers ample information concerning the product.
  • Hydroxycut can be taken easily since it comes in caplet form.

Disadvantages

  • There are less expensive alternatives to Hydroxycut.
  • Some users may have a negative reaction to certain ingredients in Hydroxycut.
  • Hydroxycut is claimed to be effective only with a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.
  • Some users of Hydroxycut may experience weight gain as opposed to weight loss.

Conclusion

Needless to say, there are a vast number of options at your disposal these days when it comes to diet medications and weight loss programs. While Hydroxycut is by no means the most difficult to acquire, it doesn’t necessarily stand out as the be-all end-all to weight loss. If you’d prefer a diet plan that involves the simplicity of a pill taken two to three times daily, Hydroxycut may be an option to consider. However, it’s imperative to keep in mind that there are countless other supplements, medications and plans to consider, many of which can be attained without a prescription. If you are committed to living a healthy lifestyle in order to facilitate weight loss, you owe it to yourself to explore the range of supplement pills available today.

    I want to know about snacking between meals while using hydroxycut drops, can you have fruit between meals or is that considered snacking? I like the product and the fruit punch flavor taste great

    Hydroxycut did not work AT ALL! In fact, I gained 9.6 lbs in the first 4 days of taking it! I went from a 3,000+ calorie diet to a 1300 calorie diet. I literally weighed and measured every bit of food that I ate, and stuck to a strict meal schedule. I also drank 120 ounces of water a day (I have always done this). I stopped taking Hydroxycut, but stuck to the same calorie intake and meal schedule. I dropped, on average, 1 lb a day with just the diet and zero exercise over the next 3 weeks. It tapered off to 2-4 lbs a week, so I gave Hydroxycut another shot (maintaining the same diet). I gained 11.7 lbs in 7 days!!! The energy level on Hydroxycut is great…If your goal is to be more energetic the fatter you get, buy a bottle. If your goal is to lose weight…don’t waste your $25.

    My sister is taking me to but the gummy version of this tomorrow, so I’m reviewing the product a bunch. It says “not intended for those under 18. I’m 14. Im about 5″1 and I weigh 124.3…. I feel super chubby and I’m so scared to take this medicine. Someone please respond and help me figure this out. I lose weight super easily but I also gain weight easily… Should I take this? I want to, but I just don’t know if it will significantly affect me in a dramatically negative way. Help??

    I started drinking the hydroxycut drops for flavoring water, because I really don’t like the plain water. I feel absolutely great, it helps me to be hungry all the time and the only sucky thing is that I work at a sit down job all day, and thats when my laziness kicks in.. But it is helping boost my energy to where I walk around the office and just make any excuse to move around . love it

    I took Hydroxycut max for a week, and developed this ball in my throat, it feels like I swallowed something wrong. Other than that I really enjoyed using the product it gave me a lot of energy, and curved my cravings throughout the day. I am wondering if this reaction is to the rapid release and if they offer an alternative kind of form for hydroxycut max

    I am taking the Hydroxycut SX7 right now. I found out that if I take them no later than 4 – 5 pm I have no problems sleeping at night. Any time after that it keeps me awake. I am very sensitive to most diuretic, but these seem to work well for me. I take one in the morning before breakfast and try to have the other one before lunch (around 1 pm or 2pm). Hope this helps!!!! Good luck!!!

    [Reply]

    Cody

    Hey buddy you should talk to your parents about asking your doctor before taking hydroxycut. with asthma it probably isnt the right way to go about it sense its based on enhancing your work out.

    [Reply]

    Jason

    It states that you should be 18 years old to take this product. And asthma, I don’t think it would be a good idea. You could talk to a physician. He might have a healthier alternative.

    [Reply]

    Max

    I’ve tried hydroxycut, and asthma runs in the family. It will give you the energy/motivation to exercise, but it will also increase the likelihood of an asthmatic episode. Migraines were also very common, regardless of how much water I drank. It curbs appetite, but it can also make you lose interest in eating altogether (Which is not something you want to do if you’re trying to eat right and exercise). Be very careful of drug interactions, if you are taking other medication. Finally if you have any type of mood/personality disorders, the LAST thing you want to do is take a product like this, trust me, especially without your primary healthcare physician’s knowledge.

    I don’t think most folks are taking hydroxycut the correct way. YOU can’t just take the pill. YOU need to exercise and change your diet. I love this stuff. Curbes my appetite, gives me more energy to workout even harder and longer and for those that say you are constipated….ha ha I believe you need to get off sugary drinks and drink water. I can tell a difference if I go a day without taking this stuff as I’m not as energized and I only workout for a hour a day. But when I’m taking it I workout about 2-3 hours a day. There’s no magic pill! You have to change what you eat and drink and be more active.

    What you’re doing right now is more than enough. You’re young and your body is still developing. The most anyone should lose in a week is 1-2 pounds.

    I’ve just starting taking this four days ago, and it turned me into a moody monster. I would get mad at anything. Noises, people being in my space, would make me fly off the handle. I apologized to them and just dumped the bottle in the toilet. I took lipozene for a wile and it didn’t make me nearly that moody. I think I’m just going to force myself to lose weight the old fashioned way and jog or something.

    If you have mood problems, I would not even mess with weight loss pills because it will multiply the problem by 10.

    [Reply]

    Max

    I wholeheartedly agree Lindsey, although at first I felt amazing, as in the “I can do anything” kind of amazing, but I would then start to become extremely agitated and irritable. it’s a shame though, because even with all the side-effects it did work I managed to lose 22 pounds.

    I am a recovering drug addict, have been off of meth for over 3 months now, all on my own- no rehab or anything. happy and loving life!! i just moved to another state with my best friend. got away from the lifestyle and all the people that had anything to do with hard drugs.. now that I am eating regularly, I have gained approximately 25 pounds since ive lived here in just a few months. so I started taking hydroxycut to help with my basic workouts I do 2-3 times a week. im on day 2- have had terrible stomach pains all day and strange muscle spasms.. idk if my body just needs to get used to it or if that’s a bad sign and I should stop taking it. im also bipolar and im not sure if it will effect me mentally., I would go to a doctor n ask but do not have the money at the moment. any feedback?

    [Reply]

    Chris

    I am recovering too and I did not buy these pills specifically for that purpose. When you’re recovering you need to stay away from every substance that acts as a stimulant, Hydroxycut is very potent. A friend of mine told me she felt like she was on speed while taking it.
    So I would recommend being careful :)

    [Reply]

    spill

    Amanda and Chris…Simply put the feeling of speed or the stomach pains indicate something in the product that increases your body to produce that weight lost they advertise on the labels. In the end, this product is bad very bad. Funny thing is if you just live, sleep, and eat right you will get the same results. Drop this product and visit your local gym, YMCA, or health spa…you will thank me later.

    Vickie

    Regarding constipation, lots of vegies and fruits are optimal BUT as we get older and we don’t eat as well as we should or exercise, what is the very best success is one stool softener (little red capsules sold at Wal-Mart for $4.00 approx. for 100 tablets)once or twice a week (or as needed) and a tbsp. (at least) of Metamucil daily or as needed. Don’t think it is an old person medicine. You don’t want all that waste hardening and lining your colon. Get it out and once you know how the product works for you, you may need it only once a week, or every other day, etc. You’ll see the results and will know how to proceed.

    Just started using Hydroxycut yesterday. I love the energy boost. I am drinking tons of water with this product and I feel great. Only taking one per day and it seems to curve my appetite as well. Taking one a day for me is enough. It is too potent for me to risk my liver or a heart attack. Also, I won’t take it on weekends to give my system a break. The main thing is sticking to the strict diet and working out like a beast!

    [Reply]

    with only taking one dose per day did the product still give you results? if I take more than one per day I get extremely jittery, light headed, and nauseous.. even while drinking water consistently throughout the day. I just started taking it four days ago, and I’m very worried that I’m wasting my money by only taking one per day.

    Silly people. So many complaining about gaining weight in the beginning….. did you forget everything you learned in school… MUSCLE weighs more than fat. HYdroxycut raises your metabolism and helps you lose fat. No you can not sit on your couch watching oprah and expect it to work. Don’t quit trying the first few days, especially if you are working out.. you will start to lose when you start toning and rid of the fat. As far as those complaining about headaches and dizziness.. READ THE DIRECTIONS!!! DRINK LOTS OF WATER!!!! Not just the caff in it… You will dehydrate yourself… AND since the amount of caff in it – you probably shouldn’t be taking it with that 32 ounce fountain dew you just picked up!!!

    Muscle didn’t weigh more than fat. 1 lb of muscle is equivalent to 1 lb of fat. However, muscle is more dense.

    I’m trying hydroxycut with a moderate exercise routine that i shove in my daily schedule (pushups at work, lifts watching tv) to see how it works. It sounds like if it gives you energy, you can turn that into some muscle mass gain, which increases your metabolism. (Literally having muscle burns energy & fat.)

    Hydroxycut is what bodybuilders call a “Thermo” – it boosts your body temperature, metabolism, heart rate, etc. causing you to burn more calories. I guess some of the other ingredients maybe work as an appetite suppresent too.

    I’m also trying rasberry ketone, and if these dont work along with upping my workouts a little, i heard someone talk about albuterol…

    Nervous about starting hydroxycut. I do not consume much caffeine and wonder which formula to begin. Reading reviews, the max sounds to strong but the caffeine free weak. I am 145 trying to lose 10-15lbs. I’ve already made changes to my diet as of several months ago and have been working out 6 days/week (45min) for the past two weeks. Any helpful suggestions from users?

    I have only been using hydroxycut for a couple of days. I have loads of energy…. But I cannot sleep. I don’t feel tired… Ever. It has done nothing to decrease my appetite- in fact I think it made it increase. While eating 30 minutes after taking it- I can feel slight pangs of nausea but definitely no extra feeling of fullness. I feel my body s metabolizing food faster- but it makes me hungry. Lost 3 lbs in a few days…. Going to try to stick to it for a month before judging it

    Everybody is different. Your body is unique and therefore might not react the same way to products. Some will loose, some will gain, some will have negative effects and some will have positive effects. It is not that the product doesn’t work, its your body that just does not go well with the product. This product could be recommend to anyone to try it out and if your body reacts in a positive way to it then thumbs up for you. If it doesn’t work well then move on and try something else.

    I’ve been using hydroxycut for about a week now. I work out for 30 minutes every day and eat healthy, which I was doing before I even started hydroxycut. Being 16 years old, you’d think this would increase the amount of weight I lose in a week. (without hydroxycut, I usually lose around 5.) It didn’t. So far I’ve gained 3 pounds. I follow all of the directions. It might just be me, but after about 10 minutes of taking the pills, I get really light headed and shaky. I think its just the way I react to all of the caffeine. I will definitely stop using hydroxycut if I don’t start seeing results soon.

    if you are 16 years old you should join a sport not take pills! your going to damage your body in the long run! these pills are not for children they are for adults! do your parents know your taking them!! I could only imagine if my 16 year old was taking pills like these I would personally make them go run two miles a day for just thinking about taking them!!!!

    i’ve been taking this dosage for about a week and haven’t seen any changes… it DOES NOT curb my appetite, make me jittery, or anything crazy. I am afraid to take 2 pills 3x a day because I am a petite person already just wanting to lose 10-15 lbs

    I take a Hydroxycut pill in the morning, about an hour before I work for it to initiate. I love it. It gives me a boost of energy instantly. I compared one day of working out with out it to a day with it. If I don’t take it, I usually have a harder time running longer on the treadmill. But once I actually take hydroxycut, I have the ability to run 15 minutes or longer and faster on the treadmill with no problem. And I can continue to walk on it for the other 15. I lost 10-12 pounds in 3 weeks(: I definitely recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a quick boost of energy for their exercises.

    Hydroxycut is LOADED with caffeine. If you take the recommended dosage, it is almost the equivalent to drinking 7-8 cups of coffee a day. What you were describing was the caffeine withdrawal. It’s best to go off of these products slowly and also incorporating coffee or green tea until your body finally readjusts itself.

    I took hydrohycut for 13 days. I stopped because I start getting panic or anxiety attacks. I have insomnia and feel very tier during the day. It’s been five days since I stopped and I still not able to eat well. The smell of food gross me out and I just can eat anything. I feel restless and weak at the same time. Please beware of all this magic pills to lose weight. I have been exercising for three years four to five days a week for about 40min. I got frustrated because I was not loosing weight, so I try the magic pills but I regret big time. I just hope to go back on being my self.

    I would NOT reccomend this product. I took Hydroxycut and 2 other fat burners (over the course of a year). That was about 5 years ago. I now have an extremely healthy lifestyle and work at a gym. I have chest pains from time to time and I believe it was from the use of this crap. Please respect your health. If I could go back theres no way I would have taken them.

    You cannot ‘spot reduce’ any one area of your body. When you start to lose weight you will lose weight over your entire body, so it is important to exercise and have a proper diet. You will notice the weight and inches coming off collectively, but the mid-section will take the longest as this is the biggest area for fat storage.

    you are correct about spot reduction…however you can spot tone which will LOOK as though you reduced that area

    Only been taking hydroxycut max for women for maybe two weeks? I have really seen a change in my energy level. I am naturally a lazy person, and this kicks my butt into gear. I am almost 30bls over weight and my fiance is returning from deployment. So it’s important I lose this weight. I workout about 6 to 5 days a week (cardio, going to curves now :D , and some at home yoga). My question is I forgot to take the pills yesterday because it was a crazy day and I have a massive headache? I took them this morning like I always do and my headache seems to be going away? Is this normal? (I got the hydroxcut idea from a best friend. she lost 40bls!)

    If your feeling lousy on days you don’t take it, it is because the lack of caffiene. When you take caffiene a lot everyday and then suddenly stop, you will get a headache. A cup of coffee(just a little, not like a ginormous cup) can help. It did with me.

    I’m about half way threw my bottle of Hydroxycut Max (the one for women) now and I’m quitting it. Literally all I have experienced so far are the horrible side effects, no weight loss at all. After taking the pills, I can feel my heart racing and I get really hot and sweat a lot. I’m always thirsty and never can fall asleep. Even if I take my last set of pills at 2 pm and get in bed at 12, still I can’t fall asleep for hours and wake up in the middle of the night sweating. Yesterday, I got a huge rash on my neck and chest and broke out into hives practically all over my body. My face and whole body puffed up, it was really embarressing. My feet swelled so much I couldn’t fit into my shoes. Lastly, I found it really hard to breath while I took the pill. I always felt short of breath which made it really hard for me to workout. And to respond to Ash- yes I did feel huge mood swings on the pill. It usually made me super anxious all the time and after I stopped taking them I felt somewhat depressed. Not worth the money at all!

    The simple way to increase your metabolism is to eat small frequent meals. Eat 4 or 5 meals a day with 3 hours gap on each meals. These meals does not have to be cooked meals. It can easily be raw vegetabled and some nuts or fruit. Do not eat 4 hours prior to bed time.
