In the diet industry don’t mistake marketing for effectiveness. Fat Magnet tablets claim to be “scientifically-advanced”, so we decided to take an in-depth look at the ingredients, side effects, clinical research and customer service quality. Furthermore, we examined hundreds of user reviews and comments. Then, we summarized and condensed to give you the info you need.

Fat Magnet Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Leptigen.

What is Fat Magnet?

First off, Fat Magnet ingredients are chitosan 500mg, psyllium husk 200mg, malic acid 40mg and aloe vera 20mg. [1] [2] It promotes weight-loss by blocking the absorption of fat. The recommended serving is two capsules, twice per day. The small pills make it easy to take on-the-go.

Fat Blaster Fat Magnet is a fat-blocking supplement from Natural Balance. The product is sold through the official website and trusted retailers. We like that it contains a few natural ingredients and that we found some positive customer comments, but read on…

Fat Magnet Results – “A Bit Lacking!”

The first concern was the effectiveness of Fat Magnet ingredients. “Adding fiber to your diet is a good way to improve health and wellness,” said our Research Editor. “But, that may not be the best choice if you want to lose weight.” [3]

One customer commented, “Have been taking it for almost a week now and have not noticed any weight-loss.”

Another user said, “I’m taking this for 3 months, nothing happened.

We noticed that some dieters were talking about their results. “Helped to remove waste without causing side effects,” stated a customer.

Side Effects – “Not too Pleasant!”

When we searched for Fat Magnet side effects, we were surprised by the results. One user revealed, “I have been using Fat Magnet for 5 days and I had very bad diarrhea.” [4]

”This stuff only makes me constipated,” said another customer.

Negative side effects weren’t always reported. “I thought talking a fiber supplement would cause bloating, but I was wrong,” stated a user. [5]

“No gas, nausea or trips to the bathroom. Pretty solid supplement,” explained another.

The research we’ve done throughout the years has shown that if customers experience adverse reactions after using a supplement, the chances of long-term success are limited. It may be time to consider an alternative if products like Fat Magnet are connected to negative side effects.

The Science – “Follow the Research!”

We at DietSpotlight follow the research, especially when a company claims their product is “scientifically-advanced”. There’s solid science supporting the effectiveness of ingredients such as chitosan and psyllium husk, but there’s nothing advanced about one that’s essentially a fiber supplement. Although adding it to a diet could improve wellness, you may not achieve the results you want or deserve.

The Bottom Line – Does Fat Magnet Work?

Are Fat Magnet pills the real deal? Well, we like that it contains some natural ingredients and is relatively inexpensive, but we’re concerned about this one because there’s no connection between this formula and weight-loss. If that wasn’t enough, we’re skeptical about giving this one the green light because customers are complaining about side effects and not seeing results.

We want you to be successful in your weight-loss journey, so we suggest going with a supplement containing ingredients proven to work, backed by positive customer reviews and not linked to harmful side effects.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. This supplement contains four clinically-tested ingredients, which have been shown to promote weight-loss by boosting metabolism and jump starting fat loss. We can’t find any complaints of harmful side effects and comments we found are showing people are seeing excellent results.

Plus, the company that makes Leptigen is confident in their supplement, they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

Previous Fat Magnet Review (Updated July 10, 2014):

Fat Magnet Review: What You Should Know

Fat Magnet takes a slightly different approach to weigh loss. Instead of working to suppress appetite and boost the metabolism, this product promises to "reduce the transit time of foods in the digestive tract", so fat is eliminated from the body instead of getting absorbed. It claims that it will bind the fat into a mass that is too large to digest to effectively reduce the amount of fat in your diet. While some online retailers do suggest a "sensible" weight loss management plan and exercise, the suggestion is that Fat Blaster Fat Magnet will remove the fat from your food so you don't have to cut down on calories or fat to lose weight. We are highly skeptical of any weight loss supplement that does not recommend a low calorie, low fat diet along with daily exercise in combination to most effectively reach your weight loss goals. We are also leery of a product that makes big promises without offering a shred of clinical proof that the formula will perform as suggested. The product is sold through a host of online retailers and physical stores nationwide for a reasonable price. However, we will have to take a closer look at the formula to see if it can deliver on any of the promises it makes.

Ingredients in Fat Magnet

Fat Magnet tablets includes chitosan, psyllium husk, malic acid, vegetarian lipase and aloe vera.

Product Features

The two ingredients that appear to deliver on the product's promises are chitosan and psyllium husk. These two ingredients are becoming common ingredients in weight loss supplements, although their effectiveness has yet to be proven. Chitosan is said to regulate cholesterol levels and absorb fat so it doesn't get into the body. While there may be some evidence to suggest that this ingredient can have a positive impact on cholesterol levels, it remains to be proven as a weight loss supplement. Psyllium husk is used in some weight loss supplements because of its laxative properties. However, there is no clinical evidence to suggest that a laxative will be effective in reaching long term weight loss goals. A fun fact we like about Fat Magnet is that it contains Aloe Vera, a key ingredient most notable for treating wounds and transforming fat and carbohydrates into energy to enhance weight loss. At the time of this review, a one month supply of Fat Magnet sells for about $14. Unfortunately, we were unable to find any sort of free trial offer or money back guarantee on this product.

Advantages of Fat Magnet

  • The product is reasonably priced.
  • A complete ingredient list is provided on the company website.

Disadvantages of Fat Magnet

  • Fat Magnet pills do not contain a proven fat burner or appetite suppressant.
  • The included ingredients have not been proven effective in weight loss.
  • We were unable to find a money back guarantee.


It certainly sounds attractive to find a supplement that simply removes the fat from our daily diet. However, there is no clinical evidence to suggest that Fat Magnet can do anything of the kind. We believe that consumers should look for weight loss supplements that contain a proven fat burner and appetite suppressant for best results. Fat Magnet doesn't appear to include either one.

Hi I just read your findings about fat magnet, when I first used it 2 years ago following the guideline of 2 tablets 30 min before a meal & I didn’t see much change, June last year I revisited & reread the box it does say no more than 4 tables 30 min before the meal so I started taking the 4 tablets I weighed 105, I now weigh 84, I never had any side affects, you do need to drink more water than you might be consuming.
I have a slow metabolism which makes it hard to lose weight, fat magnet has helped me to feel better about myself and to look better in standard woman’s sizes of 12 & 14 instead of 18 to 20, it has lowered my cholesterol levels to a normal level which is vital due to chronic heart disease in my family.
I don’t go out of my way to eat fatty foods but to absorb the fat from the cheese & biscuits we have a few times a week with wine is helpful & eating food prepared by others not knowing what fats are in there the fat magnet helps there as well, I’m now able to have energy to exercise which is helping to tone my skin, I’m a mother of 6 children and I need all the help I can get, thank you fat magnet for saving me from depression and being overweight regards Wendy


Wendy’s comments do not add up. How can one use size 18 to 20 and weight 105 pounds unless she meant kilos than it does make sense..At 105 pounds reducing to 84 pounds a person would be using size 0 or 2 at most assuming a height of 5ft any taller she wuldn’t have the energy to look after 6 kids. Clarification is needed

Why would I feel dizziness?

Hi. It could be a possible side effects. Please stop using this product and consult your doctor.


For almost 6 months I have been eating healthy and exercising with a PT regularly. But was not losing any weight. I know I was gaining muscle but there was still no weight loss. Four weeks ago I started taking fat magnet, with my healthy eating and exercise in I have now lost 5 kg which I knew I wouldn’t of done before. My weight was stubborn and didn’t want to move. I have also replaced my breakfast with a fat blaster super shake, I find that it fills me up and keep me satisfied. I have more energy now than what I’ve ever had. So thank you not only to my pt but to fat magnet and fat blaster shake

Will I regain all the weight loss once I stop taking the fat magnet. Will I be a slave to this product?


I was under the impression that it wasn’t supposed to suppress your appetite, it’s suppose to quicken the digestive process (which means less fat is absorbed).

I have been taking it for almost a week now and have not noticed any weight loss (but it says it can take several weeks before you notice)

Overshare warning:

I have noticed constipation. I have also noticed I can actually see the fat coming out into the toilet. The colour is a lot lighter and it seems to be oily (which can only mean the fats are coming out instead of being absorbed?)

Anyway, I would love to hear from someone who has tried it long-term

Gary Shortt

My wife and I are both on our second bottle of the Matrix 360 and neither of us have noticed any difference at all


Where did you purchase this product??

maura davis

ordered it feb 3 14 was told it is on way but have not seen it yet . ordered by phone (1-866-204-6485) paid with mastercard of donald m davis. any idea how long it will take?


Bullshit medicine, i m taking this teblets since 3 monthes, nothing happened, so everyone i did heavy dieting and i did all which i could do, to remove fat but now i put these pills in my bin


I have been unable to find a working phone number to order this product. The number that actually goes anywhere – gives you hold music and is never answered. Do you have more information as to how to order?


There was an full page ad in the Toronto Sun today March 8, 2016 the phone # 1-844-299-0764, it works from Canada BUT it’s $49.95 US funds and $20.00 to ship. Come to $97.00.CND. If you signed up to receive an order every month you won’t have to pay for any shipping after the first but you will have to pay the first $20 . $49.95 US equals $67 Canadian, me myself I don’t think it’s worth it I decided to read the reviews to see what other people have to say about this fat magnet And as of right now it doesn’t look too good. Good luck if you decide to try it

bernadette tynan

i being taking after dinner is that all right


Are fat magnets suitable for vegetarians?


I’ve just purchased FatMagnet this morning. I took two tabs 30mins before eating. Hope this fatmagnet thing works. I had a baby a year ago, lost weight 2months after. Then I started working in an office in Aug 2011 and I’ve been putting on weight eversince. Corporate life is defo a KILLER!!! I’ve no time to do exercises cos when I get home I still have to make dinner, feed my son, bathe him, put him to bed.. by the time I finish all these it’s around 9pm and I’m exhausted. So fingers cross this fatmagnet works for me!!


I have recently purchased fat magnet tablets. I have to say i was very surprised. I have tried diet tablets before with little or no impact. But on Fatblaster i feel full all day. I find i am rarely hungry at all. Normally i get faint and head spins at work if i dont eat regularly. But on Fatblaster i can go all day without even realising that i havent had lunch yet.
I havent had any toileting troubles but i assume that is only because i have been watching what i eat.
The only problem is if you are the type of person (like me) who doesnt always eat just because im hungry. I still find myself eating when i am full because it is yummy.
I would recommend the tablets to anyone. For the price, why not give them a go.


Hi, I bought Fat Magnet last month and I don’t have the guts to try it yet, I am not sure of It and I am so happy to find a positive comment. Well I hope this works because I am a bit overweight for my age. It was very cheap and I was wondering if the low cost was based on quality. so, hope this works


Where did you buy it? Please advise


To the questions no 3. I have blood pressure and have been told that it would not affect u. And they say fat magnet has not been proven to be a appetite suppressant. Well it does the exact opposite for me. It suppresses my appetite so much that i can hardly eat or feel like eating at all. It is definitely an appetite suppressant 4 me. Products that actually say they will suppress appetite have the opposite affect on me. So there u go. A great product and it actually relaxes me and i am a mother of 3. I find i can still cook and eat wat i want knowing fact magnet is absorbing the fat but try not to go overboard. A great product. Buying another supply today.

jenny hook

Can you use it if you have blood pressure?


Yes, it is very difficult to use this product if you don’t have any blood pressure. We actually prefer customers with blood pressure. A pulsing heart is just optional…


hi, im 14 years old and was just wondering if fat magnet will be suitable for me.
i weigh: 67kg and my height is:160cm …and if it is, is it legal for me to buy?
thank you smile


i have been useing fat magnet for 5 days and i had very bad diariya,but i have been drinking water but its still the same, what can i do to fix this problem


Well I have had the opposite – constipation. My diet hasn’t changed (It still includes fats) so I would have thought constipation meant you were eating too much fats and diarrhoea maybe means you’re not eating enough at all.


Aloe Vera will do that to you. It’s one of the most effective, commonly found, plants that do.


i would suggest you stop eating as much fatty foods. the diarhea you have been experiancing is the fat being expelled from your body. So really when it says you don’t need to change your diet, that is false. you should reduce the amounts of fat you consume and you will see that the diarhea will slow down or stop.
