Liposlim Review - Does This Diet Program Really Work? Are dangerous ingredients and dieter complaints deal breakers?
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.
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 in 2016 is one called Leptigen. 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 Leptigen 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 KnowLiposlim 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 IngredientsLipoSlim 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 FeaturesLiposlim 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.
- 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.
- 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.
ConclusionLiposlim 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:
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.
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. 
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. 
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.
