What You Should Know
Ultimate Nutrition Perfect Diet claims to increase short-term energy and suppress appetite. There is no doubt that the supplement provides stimulants to increase energy, but there are no appetite suppressants on the ingredient list. In large amounts, stimulants cause nausea, which can be used as an appetite suppressant. The average dieter will likely take Ultimate Nutrition Perfect Diet and feel negative stimulant side effects including jitters, shakes, nausea and racing heart rate. Dieters sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants should not take this supplement at a full dose from the start. It is best to take the smallest dose possible and work up to a full dose over time. The body will get used to taking higher levels of stimulants like caffeine, which can lead to dependence and addiction.
List of Ingredients
Bitter Orange, Guarana Extract, Green Tea Extract, White Willow Bark, Cayenne and Yerba Mate.
Bitter orange is a stimulant closely related to ephedra. The stimulant is not proven to increase metabolism the way ephedra was proven, but it does come with the same potential side effects. Dieters taking bitter orange should not take other stimulants as they will prolong the effect and increase potential side effects.
Guarana extract is another stimulant. This stimulant will increase heart rate and blood pressure, just like bitter orange. When taken with other stimulants, the effect is increased.
Green tea extract is proven to boost metabolism. We are not given an exact amount of green tea in Ultimate Nutrition Perfect Diet. The supplement needs to include at least 300 mg of green tea, preferably standardized for EGCG, to increase metabolism.
White willow bark is a natural form of aspirin. When ephedra was legal, white willow bark was combined with ephedra and caffeine to create an ECA stack. The ECA stack was the most effective fat burner ever created.
Yerba mate is another stimulant. Cayenne fruit is used to increase the amount of the other ingredients absorbed by the body.
This supplement contains four known stimulants. This does not equate to the “perfect diet.” It does add up to a long day of shakiness, nausea and jitters.

Ultimate Nutrition Perfect Diet will increase energy and appetite may be decreased by the nausea associated with taking such a strong stimulant. Dieters should take this supplement with great caution as the ingredients are all associated with increased blood pressure and increased heart rate. Caffeine lasts 12 hours and the effect may be prolonged when taken with other stimulants.
