What You Should Know
Qivana produces the Metaboliq system for people who want to eat right and lose weight. The system is comprised of four elements combined into one weight loss program. The four formulas are Shake, Stick, Boost and Resist. Each offers a different angle for weight loss support. There are no ingredients listed for most of the supplements in the Metaboliq program. We would like to see what ingredients are included to determine whether or not the dieter would see any weight loss benefits.
Qivana does not offer Metaboliq for sale, but it does offer an affiliate program where others can sell the product for a profit. There are no free trials of the supplement, but testimonials are available with some impressive before and after photos. Unfortunately, before and after photos could be generic and the consumer would never know the difference.
List of Ingredients
Shake – 200 calories and no listed ingredients.
Stick – 200 calories and no listed ingredients.
Boost – Decaffeinated Green Tea, Cayenne Pepper and L-Carnitine.
Resist – Indian Herb.
The four steps dieters are expected to take when following the Metaboliq program are meal replacement, supplementation, prevention and exercise. Meal replacements are available in shake and stick form. The shake mixes with water or milk. Milk will increase the total caloric impact of the shake mix, but Qivana claims most dieters feel less hungry when the use milk. Stick is a chocolate meal replacement bar that can be used in place of shake.
Boost is the weight loss supplement packaged with Metaboliq. The ingredients in the supplement are not going to boost weight loss at all. Decaffeinated green tea may be a great source of antioxidants, but the caffeine has been removed. Caffeine is a proven fat burner that could boost metabolism just enough to promote weight loss, even in small amounts. Cayenne pepper may aid in absorption of vitamins and other ingredients, but that does not boost weight loss.
Resist is created from an unnamed Indian herb that prevents the tongue from tasting sweet foods. This is supposed to stop cravings and keep the dieter from overeating. If sweet foods taste less appealing, the dieter will eat fewer calories. This is a hypothetical theory that may work on paper, but not in real life. Dieters who eat out of habit or to curb negative feelings are not going to stop eating because sweet does not taste as sweet.
- Ingredients for the Metaboliq are listed online.
- The official website offers information on each part of the Metaboliq formula.
- Not all supplements and meal replacements list ingredients.
- We have no idea how much the system costs.
- There are no proven weight loss ingredients.
- Caffeine is taken out of the green tea.
Metaboliq may have strong testimonials, but we do not see how the supplement portion of the program helps increase weight loss. The 200-calorie meal replacements are enough to cause weight loss, but they will also cause hunger. If the meal replacement shakes and sticks are eaten for breakfast and lunch with a sensible dinner, the dieter is likely to consume less than 1000 calories per day. That is far too low for most dieters and will likely cause hunger and rebound weight gain.
