Skinny Fiber, sold by Skinny Body Care, is a fiber supplement that expands in the stomach to reduce hunger. According to the supplement description, the fiber expands 50 times its normal size. In addition to reducing hunger, the supplement will boost metabolism and suppress the formation of fat. This sounds like a super supplement, but chances are the ingredient list will not support these extraordinary claims.

List of Ingredients

Glucomannan, Caralluma Fimbriata and Cha de Bugre.

Product Features

Skinny Fiber is not a supplement with special ingredients known only to the manufacturer. The three ingredients in the supplement are commonly used in other weight loss supplements. Glucomannan is a water-soluble fiber. It does absorb water and expand, but there needs to be enough water in the stomach for the fiber to absorb for it to expand 50 times. There is a button for dieters to learn more about how to take the supplement, but the button only leads to a “Coming Soon!” page.

Caralluma Fimbriata is a cactus extract that reduces appetite. Sounds a lot like the Hoodia cactus, right? The supplement company claims Caralluma Fimbriata will stop hunger and block the formation of fat, but they don’t bother to back up these claims with clinical research. There are clinical studies supporting the antiobesogenic effects of the ingredient, but only on the rat population. Human studies are not available.

The final ingredient is Cha de Bugre. Cha de Bugre is a Brazilian plant that contains caffeine. The caffeine levels are lower than other stimulant herbs, but the stimulating effects may be stronger than standard caffeine. The ingredient also contains acids known to improve healing.

The official website for Skinny Fiber leaves much to be desired. There is very little proven information on any of the ingredients and some of the pages are under construction. There are no testimonials for the supplement and before and after pictures of dieters losing weight on the supplement are nonexistent.

Skinny Fiber is sold through the official website, but the order page does not list a price. The consumer is told to enter shipping information, but no credit card information. The terms and conditions of the website list the price as $59.95. There is a 100% money back guarantee for 30 days following the purchase.

    R u serious, you seem to know so much of something you don’t know anything about, all I can say is that Skinny Fiber saved my life, I was Sick for the past 4yrs to where Doctors could not find out what was going on with me, I was to the point I could not walk or much less care for my self, I was in continuous pain 24/7, 4 yrs later I was dx with fibermyalgia, osteoarthritis, neuropathy, to where I was barely able to walk, since starting Skinny Fiber 2 months ago I’ve lost 26lbs I have so much energy and able to walk and care for myself again. And I am not old, Thank You Skinny Fiber for giving me my life back. For those that can not swallow capsules, I open them up and place powder in back of my throat and swallow with plenty of water.

    This product doesn’t do anything magical. It doesn’t work. I took it faithfully & watched my calories and exercised and Gained Weight. I drank all of the water it claims you should drink. Don’t waste your money. Testimonies show that people lose 10lbs in 3 months. You can do that without spending close to$200. Just eat healthy and exercise, there’s no such thing as a magic pill!!!! :(

    I would like to know if Skinny Fiber will harm the kidneys. I am in renal failure right now and don’t want to make it worse.

    Hi Penny, I would suggest to you to take the list of ingredients to your dr and have them look it over before taking it. I take it and only have one kidney and Im doing good. Good luck and if I can help I’d be more than happy to answer any questions.

    Today is my first day trying SF… I’m hoping that my results are as good as others. It’s not a miracle pill. You still need hard work / dedication in your life by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
    There are many FB groups out there. The pills are quite costly. The more bottles you buy the cheaper it is. The FB group I belong to, they do group orders. It’s great for someone that wants to try it. Sure it voids the 30 day money back guarantee, but rather than paying $60 for the bottle, I paid $45 (the cost to get a mani/pedi is worth it if it works, otherwise I just got a bad mani/pedi, money gone, no hard feelings)

    [Reply]

    r u serious

    What are your results so far? I tried it, gained weight instead. Cancelled auto ship it’s a rip off. I can lose 10lbs in 3 months without having to spend a small fortune on fake pills.

    Has anyone using this product experienced really really loose bowels. Im talking like really watery & explosive? Sorry for being so descriptive but want to see if this is normal almost strait after I have eaten.

    [Reply]

    kay thomas

    my bowels look like tar. Can I take skinny fiber while being on an antibiotic? I am losing weight though

    [Reply]

    Kishay

    I would suggest putting in a quick call to your doctor or pharmacist and just asking if it’s okay to take a fiber supplement on the particular antibiotic that you’re on. That way a total stranger is not giving you incorrect information. Safety first!!

    I agree, I have been sticking with the wáter and taking the tablets and nothing, have lost 1 kilo in five weeks and probably would have lost that anyway as I am not cutting out all carbs and eating well… I believed in the product but don´t now, the only thing it does it cut my appetite, but it kicks in later again..rubbish.

    I am wanting to do this, but will not, I am not sure why people would take something not regulated by the FDA (that’s what it is there for to make things safe and study the product before ingesting), and the price is outrageous. I am terrified for the people that are taking this for the long term without approved testing. Would love for this to be safe and be a wonder drug for everyone, but I think, with everything, down the road there will be consequences for hoping there was. ;(

    Well you take multivitamins and it is not regulated by the FDA

    Just be sure you do not order from anyone who is not an SBC distributor. Fake ones have been found online and we cannot tell you what is in them. Always get from a SBC distributor to be safe.

    I started SF about a week and a half ago, yesterday I took 2 before meal with a lot of water! -(By this I mean 11/2-2litres due to a prescribed medication I am on -Oxybutynin) anyway at 3 am I woke up I thought I was choking! This is the first time this happened, I drank more and more water (3LT) and then I started to vomit. My husband wanted to rush me to the hospital, but I was too stubborn to go as I had important meetings the next morning…it is now 12pm the next day-I still cannot eat or drink and I am experiencing chest pains as well. It feels like a foam tube is coming from my stomach strait to my throat-I FEEL IT there! My meeting has been pushed back to 3:30pm and I am really worried…I ended up on my lay-z-boy trying to position myself like a plank! One of the scariest moments in my life!It is the 1st time I have moves since about 4am.
    Has this happened to anyone else?

    They all r a supplement. The girls say no diet but it s an aid not a miracle. Worker. Therefore. Diet s r not healthy. But eating healthy like 6 wk body make over teaches you. Sets a new life style not a temp diet An with out work out s u can turn to flab. So yes they go hand in hand. Beach body has bin around for yrs an with great trainers who care Love all there work outs walking is always a no one an only thing that has ever truly giving me energy A lot of reach is always best things to do before you buy best wishes on your journey

    Im reading all of the reviews here and confused. I am not currently taking either one of these products. But in my opinion people have to try products and see what will works for them. Everyone body is so different. I did check other reviews sites as well. I am just a firm about whats for you is for you. Don’t knock products just stop taking them and find what will work for you.

    [Reply]

    Judith

    Bailey I totally agree with u, everyones body is designed differently, not everyone will get the same results,I believe if something doesn’t work for u then do ur research and move on to something else, it applies to everything in life and do it without judging. :)

    Skinny Fiber is also for teens…it is all natural and better yet take it to her doctor and get his approval. My other customers have done the same thing and have yet to get it rejected by a doctor. Of course all ailments are different. Always check with your doctor. Like I said in the other review my mom takes it and she is 82 yrs old…not that she needs to lose weight but for irregularity reasons, but has never felt better.

    Skinny Fiber reminds me too much of a pyramid scheme for me to try that one. It seems the people who don’t sell the product never lose as much as the ones that do. That is kind of worrisome. If you drink the amount of water required in that plan you would probably lose weight without the product. I am going to try the Avesil.

    [Reply]

    Margery Bass

    The amount of water used with these capsules would put a normal person way over the normal amount of liquid for a normal person. Possibly could lead to kidney disease. Customers should be warned!

    I am on Skinny Fiber and let me tell you it DOES work. And you drink the 8 glasses of water your normally suppose to drink a day. Im not a distributor but I can give my persons name if you have ANY questions. Dawn Hapney, look her up.

    You said in the review that on the web site there are no before and after pictures but there is a facebook page just for this that some lady had made. Its a closed group so you have to send a request but there are before and after pictures and all sorts of testimonials. “Jax skinny friends–weight loss support group” is the name of the page.

    There is also a group with someone named courtney who sells skinny fiber. These people must be making a lot of money from all the people ordering.

    Carla Peterson

    Every store you buy from has a markup. Of course some of these people are going to be distributors. Couldn’t you use a little extra money?
    There is a difference in being a pyramid and working at selling something. If it works for you, why not introduce it to your friends? I am going to give Skinny Fiber a try. There is a 30 guarantee so all you have to do is pay the postage. All I can lose is pounds.

    Julie

    Where is the best place to buy and the least expensive?

    r u serious

    Carla P. It is a pyramid. You have to sell, Get people under you in order to move up in rank and to get paid. Sad thing is, they want you to pay a fee monthly and also receive at least one bottle monthly for yourself. If you don’t sell our don’t buy your bottle they cancel you. That sounds like a scam to me.

    Kendall

    Many people who do not sell Skinny Fiber are getting the same results. The reason so many people that have results also sell it is because they have great results. It is in no way a pyramid scheme. Many people make just enough money to buy their monthly bottle. People really should not comment on things they know nothing about. I have tons of Facebook friends who sell the ItWorks wraps, Plexus and other items. I don’t know how their pay plans are, but Skinny Fiber has a 30 day money back guarantee for a reason.
