Liposlim Review - Does This Diet Program Really Work?

I’m here to cut through the noise and get you the bottom line on Liposlim, so we did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the side effects, ingredients, customer service quality and scientific studies. We additionally scrutinized countless dieter and user comments found all over the web. At this point we compacted the data we found to give you the information you need.

Liposlim Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Burn HD.

What You Need To Know

To start, Liposlim is a diet system that contains chromium, vanadium, white kidney bean extract, 5-HTP, Forslean, L-tyrosine, guarana, Advantra-Z (citrus aurantium), green tea extract, lipase, vitamin C and chitosan.  It’s described as a three-part program with multiple different supplements. These are NoPhedra ($24.95), CBlock ($29.50) and FBlock ($23.95). All of these formulas are taken daily and are intended to work together to encourage weight-loss. More specifically, they are supposed to block fat absorption, block carbohydrates and increase fat loss. You may find it a bit overwhelming to take all of these with you, but it is possible.

From what we gathered, Liposlim was first released in 2012 by Absolute Nutrition. These supplements do contain some natural ingredients and all of them can be purchased online. Also, there are some positive customer reviews, which are helpful, but read on…

Dangerous Ingredients – “A Real Problem?”

The first issue we came across with Liposlim ingredients was side effects. “It’s imperative to always pay close attention to the formula used in any supplement you take. We noticed that NoPhedra contains citrus aurantium, which provides synephrine. This one can lead to accelerated heart rate, high blood pressure and other health-related problems,” says our Research Editor.

One customer complained, “Felt like I was having a heart attack, this stuff is no joke!”

Another stated, “Made me super anxious and jittery, no thanks.”

A Lot of Dieter Complaints – “What to Expect”

We couldn’t help but notice all of the user complaints posted online for Liposlim. In fact, one customer stated, “Can’t believe I fell for this scam.”

Another said, “LIPOSLIM IS A SCAM!! Please do not buy this product. The customer service is disgusting.”

The research we’ve done has shown if there is a particular aspect of a diet program or supplement that is very burdensome (a painful/difficult exercise routine, too many user complaints, dangerous ingredients) the chances of long-term success is very low. If Liposlim does in fact earn a great number of customer issues, this could be problematic.

The Science – “Valid?”

Put plainly, there is no clinical research presented online to support the weight-loss claims made by Liposlim. If you look closely at the formula you will find two ingredients with quite a bit of backing, caffeine (supplied by guarana) and green tea. You can buy these anywhere for a fraction of the cost of Liposlim, so that doesn’t mean this product is any better than the standalone ones. We at DietSpotlight must see published scientific studies to validate the diet supplement before we can get behind it. Here we only see a big red flag.

The Bottom Line – Does Liposlim Work?

Ahh, it took a bit of time, but we have this one in the bag. It’s interesting to see that the Liposlim diet program involves three different dietary formulas, but we certainly don’t feel comfortable encouraging anyone to buy these products. First of all, there are a lot of customer complaints regarding high credit card charges. Also, taking three supplements daily for weight-loss doesn’t sound simple.

If you need to slim down faster and shed excess body fat, we suggest going with a diet program or weight-loss pill that doesn’t cost you a fortune and is supported by clinical studies. It’s also helpful if dieters leave positive feedback about the formula.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. This supplement provides a proprietary blend of four ingredients, which have been shown in documented scientific studies to boost metabolism and increase fat reduction. Furthermore, we are unable to find any user complaints regarding harmful side effects and customer reviews around the web show people are seeing incredible results.

Also, the company behind Dietspotlight Burn is confident enough in the formula to offer a special trial offer, quite the good sign.

Previous Liposlim Review (Updated June 9, 2014):

What You Should Know

Liposlim is a three part system created by Absolute Nutrition. The three parts actually consist of three products that are sold separately on Absolute Nutrition's website. These three products are CBlock, FBlock, and NoPhedra. The theory is that by blocking carbs and fat, in addition to taking a fat burner, you should be able to drop a few pounds. The biggest issue we find with Liposlim is that it can be confusing and expensive to take three seperate products at various times throughout the day. An appealing aspect of Liposlim is that each one of these products contains all natural ingredients that are commonly found in various types of weight loss products.

List of Ingredients

LipoSlim System consists of: 1) Carb Blocker, 2) Fat Blocker and 3)NoPHEDRA Fat Burner (ephedra-free). Carb Blocker: Chromium, Vanadium, Trim Plex. Fat Blocker: Vitamin C, Adiplex, Lipase, Calcium Sulfate, Vegetable cellulose. Fat Burner: Green Tea, Advantra, Guarana, Flavanex, 5-HTP.

Product Features

Liposlim has the benefit of three separate products working together. The CBlock (carb blocker) contains chromium and vanadium, which help to regulate and maintain glucose and insulin levels, and which might help reduce your craving for high carb foods. The Fblock (fat blocker) contains lipase and vitamin C. Lipase is thought to help break down fat cells while vitamin C is a well known antioxidant and immunity booster. The NoPhedra (fat burner) contains guarana and green tea, which are both stimulants with antioxidant properties. NoPhedra also contains Advantra, which is a popular fat burner. We aren't sure how well all three of these products work together and we can't find much information about Liposlim. It seems like the official Absolute Nutrition website doesn't technically sell all three products in a Liposlim package at all anymore.

Advantages

  • Full list of ingredients are given for each product, and these are easy to find.
  • You can find discounted prices on Liposlim at various retailers around the Internet.

Disadvantages

  • You must use three products at once.
  • One of these products contains stimulants, which could be too potent for some users.
  • Little information is available on Liposlim. It may be discontinued as a package deal.

Conclusion

Liposlim does a good job at covering all the bases of weight loss while remaining all-natural, but there is really no reason for anyone to take three separate products. There are all kinds of diet supplements available that already combine everything you will find with Liposlim into one convenient pill or capsule. Liposlim does seems to be missing an appetite suppressant. We aren't sure if this is an oversight or if it is sold as yet another product to be sold by Absolute Nutrition. The hassle involved with finding and taking all of the necessary components in Liposlim almost seems to make using this diet aid more trouble than it's actually worth.

Liposlim Scientific Abstracts:

Chromium

There was a substantial effect discovered in favor of chromium picolinate (WMD: -1.1 kg; 95% CI: -1.8 to -0.4 kg, n=489). A single trial noted these effects, (WMD: -0.9 kg; 95% CI: -2.0 to 0.2 kg, n=335). Out of the trials reviewed, three reported adverse effects. This suggested their absence in the treatment groups. It was thus concluded that upon review, the meta-analysis indicates a fairly minor effect of chromium picolinate in comparison with placebo for decreasing body weight. There is a debate on the clinical importance and more robust trials are needed in the future.[1]

5-HTP

The double-blind study ran for 2 consecutive periods of 6 weeks. There was no diet handed out during the first period, with a 5040-kJ per day diet suggested for the seconds. Substantial weight-loss was noticed in the 5-HTP subjects during both periods. A decrease in carbohydrate consumption and a steady presence of early satisfaction (fullness) were also noted. The results together with the well-tolerated reports from subject regarding the supplementation indicate that 5-HTP could be safely used for the treatment of obesity. [2]

Bitter Orange

Around 44% of participants ingested bitter orange (p-synephrine) only product, while the rest of the subjects ingested a complex product containing p-synephrine in addition to other ingredients. Bitter orange alone or when mixed with additional herbal ingredients failed to deliver substantial negative effects as an elevation in heart rate or blood pressure, change electrocardiographic data, blood cell counts, serum chemistry, or urinalysis. Bitter orange by itself as well as in combination with other products greatly elevated resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure. Weight-loss was also noticed with bitter orange extract when administered for 6 to 12 weeks. There is a need for longer term studies to accurately assess the safety of this product under these conditions. [3]

Green Tea Extract

Substantial weight-loss from levels of 76.8 ± 11.3 kg to levels of 75.7 ± 11.5 kg (p = 0.025), in addition to reduction in waist circumference (p = 0.023) and body mass index (p = 0.018) were noticed in groups treated with high-dose EGCG following 12 weeks. The study also pointed out a steady trend of reduced total cholesterol, hitting levels of 5.33% and reduced LDL plasma levels. Treatment group reported good tolerance with no negative side effects. 12 treatment of high dose green tea extract caused substantial weight-loss, decreased waist circumference and steady reduction in total cholesterol as well as LDL plasma levels in women with central obesity. High dose green tea extract’s antiobestic mechanism could be linked in part with inhibition of ghrelin secretion, which would lead to elevated adiponectin levels. [4]

Victoria (Editor)

Hi Tara,
Liposlim will work differently with every person’s body. We do recommend to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly while taking liposlim for best results.

CML

Only if you don’t mind constant diarrhea. It doesn’t seem any different that using a laxative. Major stomach cramping, lot of diarrhea and of course, feeling like that you don’t want to eat. So, yeah, I lost weight, but it sure sucked.

Barbie

i used it it works.. evferyone on here complaining but we are the ones who have total control over the situation. I never had a problem. Maybe because i live in NY. But the pill did the same thing to me felt great, it’s like working out a lot and drinking water the fat melts and u go to the bathroom. just take vitamins and build up your body. Good luck in ur weightloss god bless

Sarah

I just looked on the lipo slim website and ya they tell you its a Risk Free trial right on the front page. Which Is total Bull crap. Also they shoe you pictures of people who have supposedly taken lipo slim. If you look closely at the pictures. The two people don’t even look like they are or were they same person. Beware and stay Far away.

  NOT just lipo slim
Phyllis (Verified User)

Tell us your thoughts about Liposlim.this is THE ONLY product I have used (and I have used many) that caused me to lose weight, and mostly diabetic belly fat. I loved it because I ate a sensible diet, had no side effects, and could be amazed as I watched the fat drop off. I want to reorder it and start taking it again, but I can’t seem to find a means of ordering it. Note: it has to be LIPO SLIM EXTREME………NOT just lipo slim.

  packages of Liposlim

I am returning two unopened packages of Liposlim. Please credit my account and discontinue sending any further products.

   I order anymore diet pills online
Sarah

I had the same problem. No Trial Bottles then got charged for the full product plus shipping and handling for the trial bottle. When you call to cancel the person Is really pushy and doesn’t get that you don’t want to be charged anymore. It is so annoying. before I order anymore diet pills online I will be sure to read the fine print so o don’t get sucked in again.

Hi Emmylou,
You need to contact customer service on Liposlim’s direct website to cancel your membership.

  DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY! I am stuck paying for stuff I sent back.
elaine domier (Verified User)

Another sucker has just found out that they only refund the latest shipment – I got an email that they had received the product that I sent back but even a supervisor said that they only refund the last charge and the last charge was for product not even sent so I am stuck paying for stuff I sent back – really bad news for anyone ordering from Canada as the sample takes about 3 weeks to arrive so there is no way you can return it in the required time. Also I had a pharmatist check out the ingredients and she said at least one of them have been banned in Canada and at least 2 others would not be good with the meds I take for diabetes. So I didn’t even use the sample. DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY!

Linda Barwick

Yes, I was ripped off by this company as well. We should put out a petition against them, for bad business practises.

Come back my money .

  I want to cancel my order.
Sue

I received tablets and didn’t read small print, only realised when I checked bank statement. I telephoned the no and was told I was too late to cancel, I stood my ground and asked to speak to a manager, all of a sudden they would refund half the money, I again stood my ground and said that wasn’t acceptable and again asked to speak to a manager and again all of a sudden she was authorised to give me a full refund and cancell me from the site which they have done. So my advice is to ring again and stand firm.

  Very bad customer service.
Canadian Sucker

I am very disappointed in myself for falling prey to such an obvious ploy for account information/access. They should make a 24hr hold on these transactions for buyers remorse. I just ordered these today and am not looking forward to the phone call to cancel or trying to get back the money they already took from my account. Anyway, my own fault but I hope others read these comments first and don’t be a sucker like the rest of us…

missie

Just call and say you’d like to cancel your membership and you will re join if you like the trail pack. They will try and offer you a bunch of stuff but say NO! Then you will get a confirmation email saying you are no longer a member. I had no problems cancelling and I recieved a full months bottle of both products.

I have lost 10lbs is less then 2 wks and I have missed a few days . I have noticed ive been going to the washroom a lot more but my appetite has gone done alot. I no longer crave the jumk I used too.

If you don’t get suckered into the membership and cancel quickly it is a product thata worth trying

Leslie

Do you have a number to call if you live in Canada? Thanks!

  The trial product doesn't work for me.
Kimmy (Verified User)

Hi guys!! So I bought this trial on 8th June and immediately afterwards I got cold feet, found this forum and panicked like crazy! I wrote also up there ^^^ and just thought I’d let you all know what happened since.

So I sent a threatening email to them, TWICE, and nothing. I tried to call them so many times, and NOTHING. I panicked so much as nothing was working, after seeing it had worked for everyone else. I was going to go the bank but I’d left it. I have been busy lately too, but I was adamant to contact them before the 21 days (which starts the day you order the trial, not the day you receive it) and I called today, I know it’s like cutting it close but I couldn’t reach them previously! A woman answered straight away, did the typical trying to sell me it at discount, in which I literally screamed NOOOO. and I received my cancellation email AND a reference number for this and asked loads of questions like if I had any other subscriptions and if absolutely NO money would be going out. This is the number I called! 0800 011 9520 it’s 14p a minute, the call lasted 4 mins 🙂 huge weight off my shoulders. I have the pills, I am binning them straight away! I’ve bought a skipping rope for fitness, better than jogging 😀

\nefertitimark

how do i cancel , they just took all my money out of my account for the free trial

  In conclusion its a load of hassle for a 'free trial' and it makes you very uncomfortable when going to the toilet!
Sophie (Verified User)

DO NOT BUY THESE! I have had a similar experience. I saw the ad on Facebook and as I am going on holiday in a few weeks thought I might give them a try on the free trial. They came 3 weeks after I ordered them. I have been taking them for a week now and excuse me for the crudeness but I am constantly running to the toilet. I told my friend about them and she told me to be careful as she had done something similar and had been charged an extortionate amount of money. I was stupid enough not to read the small print and then I came across this site which confirmed my suspicions. I called my bank straight away and told them to block any further payments from that company. I also called the number that has been posted on here and spoke to an American lady who cancelled the my membership and said I would not be charged any further payments and no further shipments would be shipped out. In conclusion its a load of hassle for a ‘free trial’ and it makes you very uncomfortable when going to the toilet!

The woman was nice and I recieved a cancelation conformation email right away. ALWAYS READ THE SMALL PRINT. Saying that has anyone cancelled there memebership and still had money taken from their bank account? :/

Hi Jenna,
You may cancel your membership by going to the official Liposlim website and calling customer service.

I want to know if anyone has cancelled and still had money taken out their accounts later on ?

Betty

I cancelled both products within hour of ordering by e-mail and was surprised to see postage was returned to my account.I also phoned bank to make sure no further payment came out as free samples still arrived.I contacted bank and was about to explain everthing to them but as soon as I mentioned further payments being taken from my account the guy at Lloyds stated Liposlim Natural cleanse immediately and said they can’t cope with number of complaints Main thing he said is don’t order new bank card as won’t stop them you have to call bank and they will stop further payment

Anonymous

I just called up now and cancelled my order after they had already billed me I asked for a full refund and in the end I got 75% back from both products £120 ….they offered me 50% and I refused as I’ve been to the doctors with tummy cramps and it’s was the products fault…..DO NOT SETTLE keep on at them and get your money back…..I rang 0800 011 9520 from the UK had no problems getting through and cancel all future payments….they will offer you another product. After you have cancelled call your bank and tell them to cancel all future payments from them once the money has gone back into your account and you should be ok 🙂 good luck x

Ben

Thanks for the number, another one who never read the print

Katie

Thanks for the advice and contact number. I too was initially offered a 50% refund but pushed them until they agreed to refund 75%, adding that I can keep the product (!!). Lesson learnt

  After first payment cancel your card.
Flick (Verified User)

They automatically tick their T&Cs box so when you click “Buy” you are agreeing to their Terms. These Terms say you agree to monthly payments to them. Cancel your card now if you don’t want anymore deliveries…. Don’t bother with trying to contact them. Good luck
