Quick Trim Review - Does This Diet Supplement and Cleanse System Work? Are cost and harmful side effects deal breakers?PUBLISHED: 09/01/2015 | BY: SUMMER BANKS, SENIOR REVIEWER
Because of the interest that Quick Trim has generated as a diet supplement and internal cleanse product, and the celebrity endorsement of Kim Kardashian, we did an in-depth review to see if this was a good weight loss solution for our readers. We looked at the ingredients, side effects, customer service, and research behind the product. We read customer reviews and feedback as well to provide you with all the information you need to make the right decision on Quick Trim.
What You Need to Know
The ingredients will vary based on the supplement or combination that you choose, but the Quick Trim products contain a variety of ingredients, some of which have been well-researched, while others have minimal information supporting their effectiveness. These capsules are easy to digest, and can be taken anywhere.
Quick Trim was introduced in 1992 by VitaQuest, and has stuck around for the past 23 years as a weight loss product. This product took off in 2010 after Kim Kardashian endorsed it, but it has since faded into obscurity. We like that the pills are easy to take, that some users have seen moderate weight loss, and that the company has been around for over 20 years, but read on…
Price – “Yee-Ouch”
When we first saw the price for Quick Trim, we were shocked at how affordable it was, but then we realized that they recommend you purchase four separate products that complement each other. Without taking all four, results are minimal, so the cost quickly adds up. “If you buy all four of the recommended supplements, you’ll see moderate weight loss,” said our research editor. “But the cost can quickly surpass $100 per month for all 4 products.”
“I bought one Quick Trim product, only to realize I needed 3 more for the recommended supplement stack, and I couldn’t afford them all,” said one user.
“I saw moderate weight loss, but couldn’t afford to stay on Quick Trim products after 2 weeks,” said another.

Side Effects – Another Concern
Another concern that we had with Quick Trim was the negative side effects that many users saw when taking this product. Because of the high caffeine dosage, some products contain as much caffeine as 4 cups of coffee per serving, many users experienced jitters. Other side effects that were seen in a large percentage of customers included diarrhea, dehydration, constipation, and gastrointestinal distress. “I lost 5 pounds taking Quick Trim, but now I’m dehydrated due to the diarrhea and overactive bladder,” said one customer.
“You’re guaranteed to lose weight with this product, but it’ll all be water weight that will reappear as soon as you stop using it,” said another. “The side effects of Quick Trim are unbearable,” said a third customer. “I can’t make it out of the bathroom to do anything, and I’m dehydrated, but I can’t keep fluids in.”
Throughout our research of diet supplements and other weight loss products, we’ve learned that whenever there is a particular aspect of a weight loss program that is more difficult than usual (cost, taste, side effects, painful workout, etc.) the chances that you’ll lose weight and keep it off are slim. If Quick Trim really does have these negative side effects for many people, it could be difficult to lose weight and keep it off with this weight loss supplement.
The lack of science behind Quick Trim’s claims is a glaring omission. Their claims aren’t backed up by scientific data or clinical research of any kind, and there’s no information proving that Quick Trim works any better than diet and exercise alone or more affordable alternatives that are readily available. There’s also the matter of the outstanding class action lawsuit that many customers have filed against Quick Trim. Because their claims are unrealistic and unproven, many customers have joined this lawsuit, which has caused Quick Trim to be pulled from the shelves of many health stores. At DietSpotlight, we value companies with products that are backed up by unbiased studies, not companies that have a flashy spokesperson or expensive marketing campaign. Without the science, we can’t trust what a company claims, and this is a big red flag that popped up when researching Quick Trim.
The Bottom Line
We were initially intrigued with Quick Trim because of their well-known celebrity endorser, their professional looking website, and their longevity in the weight loss industry, but the lack of science behind their claims is the primary reason that we can’t recommend this as an effective diet supplement to our readers. We also have major concerns with the lawsuit arguing that the product is ineffective, the side effects that some customers have seen, and the high cost of taking the recommended stack of products. Because of the lawsuit, it’s also now difficult to find this product, as the main suppliers are no longer carrying Quick Trim.
If you’d like to drop more weight, we suggest a supplement that offers proven weight loss at an affordable price point. Try to find a product with unbiased research backing its claims, minimal side effects, and a reasonable cost.
Leptigen is one of our favorite products so far in 2015. It contains a 4-ingredient blend of ingredients that is proprietary, and the ingredients have been featured in third party studies and proven to accelerate weight loss by burning fat and boosting metabolism. In the online reviews we read as part of our review process, we didn’t see any negative side effects caused by Leptigen, and most users seemed satisfied with the weight loss results they achieved with this weight loss supplement.
A special trial offer is currently being offered by the makers of Leptigen, which is an indicator that they stand behind their product and are sure you’ll see weight loss results.
