Lean Pak 90 Review - Does This Program Really Work? Are side effects and hype deal breakers?
This review is what happened after I obsessed for weeks over Lean Pak 90. We took the time to thoroughly examine all of the scientific studies as well as the customer-service quality, side effects, and ingredients to create this comprehensive review. Then we focused on the consumer reviews posted online. At last, we compressed all of the data we collected to give you the facts.
What is Lean Pak 90?
The first thing you need to know is that Lean Pak 90 is a three-month system that provides a different supplement for each month. The three products are Fat Release, CarbRepel, and ThermAccel. The retail cost of the program is almost $140 which also includes a weight-loss planner and the Calorie King book. The ingredients in Lean Pak 90 Fat Release are green tea extract, choline, n-acetyl cysteine, milk thistle seed extract, and a proprietary blend. The ingredients in Lean Pak 90 CarbRepel are white kidney bean extract, citrus pectin, and pomegranate fruit extract. The ingredients in Lean Pak 90 ThermAccel are listed under a proprietary blend that includes green tea extract, caffeine, yerba mate powder, guarana seed powder, and cayenne fruit.
Lean Pak 90 is made by dotFIT. The company was founded in 2008 by bodybuilder Neal Spruce. Spruce has a long history in the field of fitness. The company has retail store locations and a strong web presence, but read on…
Side Effects– “Excessive Stimulants”
Our first concern is the excessive amount of stimulants used in two of the formulas. These can cause side effects for some individuals. According to our Research Editor, “Even dieters who tolerate these types of ingredients well can be negatively affected when this many are used. The issues can include elevated blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, insomnia, headaches, nausea, and anxiety.”
One skeptical commenter noted, “The first two months were ok. I only lost a couple of pounds but I felt alright. The third month I was a few days in and felt like I was going to jump out of my skin.”
While another declared, “I had the worst headaches while I was on this. I don’t know if it was because I couldn’t sleep or something else.”
However, not all customers experienced significant issues.
A pleased consumer explained, “I really liked how I felt during this program. I got closer to my target weight.”
Which was similar to the man who said, “It worked for me with no problems.”
Hype– “Lots of Promises”
The official website makes a lot of claims of clinical proof but offers no documentation. There is a persuasive sales video but no substance.
This purchaser disclosed, “I was so excited after I watched the video that I bought the program. I lost two pounds in three months. What a waste of money.”
And a shopper emphasized, “This is a rip off. I spent more than $100 because it seemed to be legit but I felt bad and actually gained weight at first.”
While some people felt the product delivered on the hype.
One satisfied reviewer stated, “I felt better than ever and lost all the weight I needed to. It’s a winner.”
Another reported, “I got excited and stayed motivated as the pounds started to fall off.
According to our research, bothersome side effects and a product that doesn’t live up to the advertising hype can be very discouraging. If Lean Pak 90 comes with the risk of negative issues, that’s not exactly a selling point.
The Science – “Clinical Support is Missing”
At DietSpotlight we get excited when we see a company that claims to have scientific proof that their product works. We saw this on the official website but then were unable to find it no matter where we looked. We do know, however, that the green tea, caffeine and white kidney bean have some strong support. We’d just like to know more about the formula.
The Bottom Line – Does Lean Pak 90 Work?
What’s the real deal with Lean Pak 90? Some of the ingredients do have potential, but many are stimulants that are associated with unpleasant side effects. Plus, the science isn’t there as far as we could see which is why we are skeptical about giving it the green light.
If the time has come to jump start your metabolism, you may want to check out a product that has a narrow focus with ingredients that are backed by scientific research. If the company is going to make consumers promises, they need to be willing to back it up with data and a money back guarantee.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. This supplement contains a combination of four active ingredients that have been documented in clinical studies to help amplify fat loss and kick-start metabolism. We didn’t locate any negative user reviews online, but we did see many positive customer responses where people were sharing their phenomenal results.
The company that makes Leptigen is so excited about their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is very reassuring.
Previous Lean Pak 90 Review (Updated January 6, 2012):
What You Should KnowLean Pak 90 is a combination weight loss supplement kit with three individual supplements in each pack. The three supplements are FatRelease, CarbRepel and ThermAccel. Many online reviews of this supplement claim there are no ingredients for Lean Pak 90, but that is because the ingredients are listed for each supplement rather than the pack. Lean Pak 90 is manufactured by dotfit.
List of IngredientsFatRelease: Green Tea Extract, Choline, N-Acetyl Cysteine, Milk Thistle Seed Extract, dotFit Proprietary Herbal Complex with Rhododendron Caucasicum and Engelhardtia Chrysolepis. CarbRepel: Phase 2 Starch Neutralizer as White Kidney Bean Extract, Citrus Pectin and Pomegranate Fruit Extract. ThermAccel: LumaThin Caralluma Powder, dotFit Proprietary Lepticore Complex with Acacia Polysaccharides, Esterified Fatty Acids, Pomegranate Extract, Aphyanizomenon Flos-Aquae Extract and Beta Carotene, L-Theanine, ThermAccel Thermogenic Complex with Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, Yerba Mate Powder, Guarana Seed Powder and Cayenne Fruit.
Product FeaturesLean Pak 90 covers all possible weight loss supplement basis including blocking carbohydrates and burning fat. The supplement pack contains some proven ingredients and others used simply to increase heart rate. Typically, fat burners will include stimulants to boost heart rate - this is how they increase metabolism, but not all stimulants are created equal. Caffeine and green tea are proven weight loss ingredients that also increase metabolism. Too much caffeine can lead to addiction and over stimulation and too little can prove ineffective. We tend to support supplements with 100mg of caffeine or less in each serving. Each dose of ThermAccel contains 350 mg of caffeine, equivalent to up to five cups of coffee. Dieters who are sensitive to caffeine will have trouble taking this supplement without nausea and jitters. In addition, the ThermAccel supplement contains other stimulants like Guarana and Yerba Mate. CarbRepel is a completely ineffective supplement in Lean Pak 90. There is no clinical proof that white kidney bean can block carbohydrates from being absorbed into the body. The idea is good, but the effect is not what dieters desire. FatRelease contains ingredients that are supposed to block fats from being absorbed. We could go through each ingredient individually, but the result would be the same even if we did not. Green tea is a great ingredient to include, but none of the other ingredients is proven to block fat absorption. The only ingredient we know of that will block fat is Alli or the prescription strength alternative, Xenical and that medication comes with a long list of nasty side effects. Lean Pak 90 sells for $99 per one-month supply. This price is far higher than comparable weight loss products with proven results. Testimonials on the website are confusing with some dieters claiming great success but only giving the supplement three out of five stars.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- Too many stimulants.
