Moreover, we examined plenty of user responses posted all over the web. Finally, we summed up all the info we found to give you the bottom line.

What is Animal Cuts?

To start, Animal Cuts is a fat burner touted as a “complete cutting stack” and it’s geared toward men. [1] This supplement is made by Universal Nutrition. Ingredients are caffeine anhydrous, guarana, kota nut, raspberry ketones, evodiamine, green tea extract, coleus forskohlii, L-tyrosine, dandelion root, coffee bean, uva ursi leaf, juniper berry, DMAE, huperzine A, magnolia bark, ashwagandha, hoodia gordonii, synephrine, naringin, ginger root, cayenne, buchu leaf and cha de bugre. It claims to shred body fat, support healthy appetite, boost thermogenesis and reduce excess water weight.  For maximum results, you need to take two packs per day. [2]

Animal Cuts was released back around 2006 and it’s available online and in stores. This product does not contain any ephedra and there is plenty of customer feedback posted on distributor websites like Amazon, but read on…

Fad Ingredients – “Watch Out?”

The first thing we looked at were the Animal Cuts ingredients. According to our Research Editor, “It’s clear that the formula relies on some fads, which include hoodia gordonii and raspberry ketones. [3][4] These have not been proven to aid with fat loss, improve energy levels or increase strength.”

One customer said, “It didn’t work much for me, no faster weight-loss than hard work cardio and weight lifting.”

Another user stated, “I didn’t notice any change in my body fat at all.”

Despite these ingredients, some users saw good results.

As one put it, “As long as you have the clean diet to go with it and workout, you’ll see the results.”

“This product works exactly how it’s supposed to,” said another.

Animal Cuts Side Effects – “Be Careful?”

Judging from the user feedback we found online, there are numerous complaints regarding Animal Cuts side effects. One customer commented, “It literally made me sick to my stomach! I took the product and 20 minutes later I was doubled over in pain.”

“I had to discontinue using this product after speaking with my doctor about the heartburn it was giving me after every use,” said another person. [5]

Not every user felt side effects were an issue.

One review said, “The only side effect it think i felt was not being able to sleep the first night but not sure if it was the cuts or just me being very excited about changing my life.”

Yet another claimed, “With Animal Cuts the side effects have been virtually non-existent.”

After doing plenty of research, we have concluded if there is a certain part of a supplement that is troublesome (fad ingredients, too many negative issues, no real science) the odds of prolonged success are not good. In other words, if Animal Cuts does cause side effects in a lot of customers, this could be a major problem.

The Science – “Clinical Evidence?”

From what we could gather from the official website, there have not been clinical studies conducted with Animal Cuts. It’s not hard to find science out there with ingredients like caffeine making up a portion of the fat burner. [6][7] However, you can look anywhere and find this stimulant and you’ll pay less. Plus, since we at DietSpotlight prefer to see research, we’re disappointed that the company left it out.

The Bottom Line – Does Animal Cuts Work?

So, should you hop in the car to go out for a bottle of Animal Cuts? There are numerous ingredients used in the formula, but they are relatively common. There’s just no science to say this product is better than the one on the shelf next to it. Also, there are some fads to worry about. Not to mention, users have complained of no real results.

If you really want to spark metabolism and lose those extra pounds, why not try a supplement that’s been tested and shown to help with weight-loss. One that comes with great customer service and is backed by plenty of positive user reviews.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. This supplement provides four ingredients that are clinically tested and shown to help you boost fat loss and spark metabolism. Also, there is no discussion of harmful side effects and customer comments found online express people are seeing excellent results.

The makers of Leptigen are so confident in their product they’re offering every customer a Special Trial Offer.

What You Should Know About Animal Cuts

Animal Cuts is basically a "thermogenic" supplement that aims to help users burn unwanted fat. Identical to its results, Hydroxycut Max, is a fat burner containing caffeine and folic acid to boost energy levels and the metabolism, evidently leading to weight loss. It's easy to use with a recommended serving of two capsules per day. This product was created by a company known as Universal Nutrition and is claimed to be "unlike anything else out there." Animal Cuts is geared more toward bodybuilders and individuals who are focusing on weight training competitions. It claims to focus primarily on thyroid stimulants, diuretics and thermogenisis in order to assist users with losing "optimal amounts of body fat." Animal Cuts comes in a powder form and is sold in packets. This supplement sells on the official Universal Nutrition website for $53.96, which gets you a set of 42 packets.

Two Animal Cuts packets are to be taken each day for three weeks straight. Animal Cuts does not contain stimulants such as Ephedrine and caffeine. Same goes for C4 Mass and others like it. This dietary supplement is specifically intended for serious bodybuilders. Animal Cuts endeavors to help with fat burning, reduce bloating and even claims "mood enhancement" as an effect.

List of Ingredients

Some of the primary ingredient complexes found in Animal Cuts are as follows; Lipotropic Complex (Insitol Monophosphate, Choline Citrate and Betaine HCL), Thermogenic Complex (L-Theanine, Synephrine, OtopamineTyramine, Coleus Forskohli Extract and Epigallocatech Gallate), Metabolic Complex (Guarana and L-Carnitine), Thyroid Complex (Guggul and Soy Isoflavones), Diuretic Complex (Uva Ursi Extract and Dandelion Extract). Animal cuts additionally contains Insulin Potentiators such as Chromium Picolinate, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Chromium Polynicotinate, as well as Nucleotide Regulators like Phosphate, Phosphatidylcholine and Inosine. Finally, there is an Animal Cuts complex incorporated, which consists of Ginger ZRoot Extract, Citrilene, Grapefruit Extract, Phenylalanine and White Willow Bark.

Other ingredients found in Animal Cuts are as follows: Bitter orange extract, cocoa extract, green tea extract, Potassium Phosphate, Magnesium Phosphate, Magnesium Stearate, gelatin, Niacin, Vitamin B6 and Stearic Acid.

Animal Cuts Product Features

Animal Cuts is a weight reduction powder that is primarily marketed toward serious weight lifters and bodybuilders. Its is extremely identical to Arnold Iron Cuts. Some key components found in Animal Cuts are complexes such as Lipotropic Complex, Thermogenic Complex, Metabolic Complex, Thyroid Complex, Diuretic Complex, Insulin Potentiators, Nucleotide Regulators and an exclusive Animal Cuts complex. This supplement is intended to be taken twice daily for 21 days straight and aims to assist with the reduction of unwanted fat and with bloating. Animal Cuts sells for $53.96 via the official Universal Nutrition website.

Animal Cuts Advantages

  • Animal Cuts can be purchased conveniently via the official website.
  • Does not contain Ephedrine and caffeine.
  • Animal Cuts contains bitter orange extract, which is said to assist with metabolic rates.

Animal Cuts Disadvantages

  • The official website does not appear to provide a money-back guarantee.
  • The official website lacks consumer testimonials.
  • Animal Cuts does not endeavor to suppress appetite.
  • Animal Cuts is really only marketed toward bodybuilders and serious weight lifters.
  • The official website does not offer a free trial sample of Animal Cuts.


Overall Animal Cuts comes across as a fat reduction supplement primarily suited for bodybuilders. As we're on the subject, some body builders use Rockin Body to work out to Shaun T and Beachbody's videos. While this product does not contain harsh ingredients such as caffeine and Ephedrine, the manufacturers also fail to offer valid clinical evidence to support their product claims. When all is said and done, Animal Cuts would be more marketable if the official website offered some customer testimonials, a free trial sample of the product or at least a money-back guarantee. It's wise to consult your physician prior to using a supplement like Animal Cuts.

That’s fine, Goodman!


For any other 19 year old kids on here wondering about this product. Holy shit you are NINETEEN! You are young enough to burn all that fat off without this product. Unless you have a thyroid problems, get off your lazy teen ass and workout, eat right, and you will get the body you want. This product is meant for the serious lifters who have lots of water weight and simple fats to burn off, not because you want a beach bod to impress your crush.


Hey , i started to use Animal Cuts one week back with cardio exercises , i can notice different in my body , but my problem is when i ready how to use it in my pack its written : ( TAKE IT WITH A SMALL MEAL ) but its written on internet take it with empty stomach !!! is that normal ? that makes me confused

Hi! For detailed product and usage instructions, please refer to the Animal Cuts official website for more information.

Hi Fawad! Due to the fact you have over sized thyroids, you should consult with your physician before starting a new weight-loss program or product as it could have effects on you.

Hello. All users are different and can experience different results. Please make sure to consult with your physician before starting a new weight-loss program or product.


can you tell me please how much i take pack of animal cut i do cardio in morning and evenning i do muscle so tell me how do i take animal cuts ?


Please let me know what minimum time should I maintain between 1 and 2 pack of animal cuts

Devon (Editor)

Anytime between two meals, namely breakfast and lunch, but not within 1 – 2 hours of each other. Do not take within 3 hours of sleep time to avoid restlessness.

Roy akash

I take 2 pack at a day.one in morning before running. And otherb at evening before gym. I want to know how much water i need in whole day while taking the pill.and how much water need before take the pill

Devon (Editor)

An 8 ounce glass will do fine, just stay adequately hydrated during your day, especially after your workout.


I have been using animal cuts for about a week. Love the energy I am getting from them. one question though, has anyone reported random muscle twitching?

Devon (Editor)

Mild achey muscles, among other effects, have been reported from others. Has anyone else experienced this?

Moustafa Seif

I want to know how it works as I’m taking animal cuts every day 2 times but still my belly is same even with working out 4 days per week doing upper abs and lower abs exercises. looking for any feedback


I have been taken Animal cut for 3 weeks with a proper diet given by my trainer from 125 i have come down to 116 just having animal cut without diet wont give u any results .

Devon (Editor)

Hey, Moustafa. Animal Cuts is meant to be taken as a workout and muscle toning supplement. Ideally, the user would experience increased muscle and definition, and thus an increase in weight as well. It doesn’t necessarily target abdominal fat though it claim to reduce retained water weight.


I took it for a week 2 packs a day then I stopped, now I want to take one pack a day, will it be helpful?

Devon (Editor)

Why did you stop taking it before the recommended 3 weeks, Saeed? Because the recommended dosage is two packs, you may experience slower or lesser results with a reduced serving. Moving forward, try and maintain the rotating 3-weeks-on-1-off dynamic. Continue your regimen as normal, whether it’s strength training or low-carb meals, and record your progress.


I have been taking animal cuts for 1 week now (only 1 pack per day). So far, it only produces to me the ”bubble gut” feeling and massive farts, but no pain or ache at my stomach.
Should I continue taking one pack?
Thanks in advice

Candace (Editor)

With some products like Animals Cuts, gas is common. In your belly, there is a build of gas as a result of your bodies reaction to the product. Eat more fiber to maintain regularity and avoid sugary treats and corbonated drinks. Seeing as how there is no painful discomfort with you taking this product you may continue its use. Let us know how your progress goes.


I need to know how to use it

Stephen (Editor)

No problem, Kanwar. The company says to take two Animal Cuts packs everyday for three consecutive weeks. Follow a cycle consisting of three weeks on and one week off.


can u tell the diet we should take when we using animal cut


Your diet doesn’t have anything to do with supplements you take. Your diet should supplement the goals you’re trying to achieve. For example I’m cutting: I’ve reduced my calorie intake by 500 calories and reduced the amount of carbs by 50-60 grams and carb cycle once or twice a week to keep me from feeling drained. with the reduction in carbs I have increased the amount of protein I take in to help alleviate the break down of muscle for energy. Like I said earlier your diet should strictly help you achieve your fitness goals.

Stephen (Editor)

The product does not recommend a specific diet plan. However your changes will greatly improve if you maintain a low calorie diet that doesn’t exceed 1940 calories per day for women and 2550 for men.


How much water I have to drink while taking animal cuts?

Cameron (Editor)

Hi Girish, with each serving try it with 8 fl oz of water. Stay hydrated!

I have use animal cut after that my hairs are becoming thin and weak and are falling what should i do?

Arnold (Editor)

Moeez we recommend you stop taking this product and seek medical attention asap!
