Guess what I did last week? You got it–I researched the Metaboliq weight-loss system. I had heard its name come up several times, so I had to see for myself. I delved into clinical studies, ingredients, customer satisfaction, and side effects. I didn’t stop there–I then went from forum to forum, trying to dig up helpful user comments. Here is the condensed summary of my research.

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

What You Need To Know

To start, Metaboliq is a line of weight-loss products meant to either replace meals or act as a supplement to a program. The group includes shakes, bars, and supplements called Boost, Resist and Recharge. When taken either separately or in conjunction with each other, the different parts are supposed to boost metabolism, burn fat, and suppress appetite.

Metaboliq makes a profit by using the direct selling method, a fact that makes many customers feel like their health is a second priority–it can be frustrating to be asked to join the company constantly. We like the wide range of option and the emphasis on cutting down on calories is in line with weight-loss, but read on…

Our First Concern – “Are the Reports True?”

First, we were initially concerned by the complaints regarding the products’ efficacy. “Of all the concerns I would have upon initial observation of Metaboliq, wondering if it actually works would certainly not be at the top of the list,” said our Research Editor. “Even with such an extensive and costly line, customers really seemed to get a mixed bag of results.”

“Went on Metaboliq, two shakes a day, for 90 days. Didn’t lose a single ounce,” said one disappointed user. “I’m taking the boost and I really don’t feel a difference,” said another. Sometimes users really just need to engage in healthy exercise and food choices rather than replacing meals with a shake.

Our Second Concern – “Is the Price too High?”

Beyond the less-than-stellar results of Metaboliq, as reported in some reviews, consumers seemed to start catching on that it is a rather expensive program. “Very expensive, horrible aftertaste, and no different than any other shake along with a green tea supplement,” said one user.

“I’m not sure how anyone can afford the recommended combinations of these products,” said another. “One of these at a time costs enough for me!” “Shakes taste pretty good, but wow they’re expensive,” said a third reviewer.

Over the course of writing hundreds of reviews, we have come to be firm believers in the fact that flawed supplement programs don’t translate into long-term results. In the case of Metaboliq, that could mean that the slow results will deter some users while the high price will dissuade others from using the combination as directed.

Is There Any Real Science?

Metaboliq does seem to have some scientific research under its belt, both for the individual ingredients used and for the product as a whole. There are some good concepts here, and replacing meals with a shake or a bar should cut down your calorie intake. But the price tag on the individual components and the mixed results delivered for that price don’t seem to add up.

So What’s the Bottom Line – Does Metaboliq Work?

Is it time to jump into this one? We thought Metaboliq was interesting at first since they offered a comprehensive list of supplements to cover the different aspects of weight-loss. The final decision is up to you, but we have some reservations and we’re not necessarily convinced it is worth the investment. To get the best results, you have to commit to a package of very expensive supplements, and that just complicates things.

If you need to burn some fat, we recommend looking for an all-inclusive supplement that won’t have you buying several different expensive products at the same time.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. It is a single supplement that combines four clinically studied ingredients in a proprietary blend. They could help burn fat and boost metabolism. User reviews look great and results are amazing.

As a sign of confidence in their product, the makers of Leptigen are even offering a Special Trial Offer.

What You Should Know

Qivana produces the Metaboliq system for people who want to eat right and lose weight. The system is comprised of four elements combined into one weight loss program. The four formulas are Shake, Stick, Boost and Resist. Each offers a different angle for weight loss support. There are no ingredients listed for most of the supplements in the Metaboliq program. We would like to see what ingredients are included to determine whether or not the dieter would see any weight loss benefits.

Qivana does not offer Metaboliq for sale, but it does offer an affiliate program where others can sell the product for a profit. There are no free trials of the supplement, but testimonials are available with some impressive before and after photos. Unfortunately, before and after photos could be generic and the consumer would never know the difference.

List of Ingredients

Shake - 200 calories and no listed ingredients.

Stick - 200 calories and no listed ingredients.

Boost - Decaffeinated Green Tea, Cayenne Pepper and L-Carnitine.

Resist - Indian Herb.

Product Features

The four steps dieters are expected to take when following the Metaboliq program are meal replacement, supplementation, prevention and exercise. Meal replacements are available in shake and stick form. The shake mixes with water or milk. Milk will increase the total caloric impact of the shake mix, but Qivana claims most dieters feel less hungry when the use milk. Stick is a chocolate meal replacement bar that can be used in place of shake.

Boost is the weight loss supplement packaged with Metaboliq. The ingredients in the supplement are not going to boost weight loss at all. Decaffeinated green tea may be a great source of antioxidants, but the caffeine has been removed. Caffeine is a proven fat burner that could boost metabolism just enough to promote weight loss, even in small amounts. Cayenne pepper may aid in absorption of vitamins and other ingredients, but that does not boost weight loss.

Resist is created from an unnamed Indian herb that prevents the tongue from tasting sweet foods. This is supposed to stop cravings and keep the dieter from overeating. If sweet foods taste less appealing, the dieter will eat fewer calories. This is a hypothetical theory that may work on paper, but not in real life. Dieters who eat out of habit or to curb negative feelings are not going to stop eating because sweet does not taste as sweet.


  • Ingredients for the Metaboliq are listed online.
  • The official website offers information on each part of the Metaboliq formula.


  • Not all supplements and meal replacements list ingredients.
  • We have no idea how much the system costs.
  • There are no proven weight loss ingredients.
  • Caffeine is taken out of the green tea.


Metaboliq may have strong testimonials, but we do not see how the supplement portion of the program helps increase weight loss. The 200-calorie meal replacements are enough to cause weight loss, but they will also cause hunger. If the meal replacement shakes and sticks are eaten for breakfast and lunch with a sensible dinner, the dieter is likely to consume less than 1000 calories per day. That is far too low for most dieters and will likely cause hunger and rebound weight gain.

This product has 34 years of clinical studies behind it and was created by the TOP doctor in the study of metabolism. (Dr Donald Layman). There are over 90 peer reviewed articles to support it’s efficacy. It actually corrects metabolism if taken as directed.It helps your body to burn fat, and convert it to lean muscle mass by the focus on the correct macrobalance of nutrients; specifically protein. There are 29 grams of high quality animal protein in each shake. It is a 90 day challenge. The shakes/boost combo cost approx $3.30 cents per day (1 shake/day, which is a MEAL replacement…suggested as breakfast). The shakes are a perfect balance of protein, carb, fats, fiber and curb hunger for 4-5 hours.The shakes are individually packaged which makes them convenient to take on the go. The weight loss is sustainable. My husband lost 60 lbs in 8 months, and no longer takes insulin or is diabetic. My sister has gone from a size 16 to a size 6 in about 7 months by following the suggested plan. I’m an RN that is impressed with the science behind the products, AND by the results. I highly recommend the Metaboliq system. It is 100% pharmaceutical grade, third party QA tested; contains absolutely nothing artificial, and absolutely is an effective and safe means to lose weight the healthy way.


Me too I love this plan, not done with my 90 day challenge yet but I have lost 13 lbs am in a size 6 jeans and finally have a waist…

This product has worked wonders for me. the hunger can be taken care of by eating veggies during the day to curb the hunger. I have lost 32 lbs. on this system and am sold.


Hi the Metaboliq system is great, lost 25 lbs within 3 1/2mos and I do cheat and not starving. This was the easiest way for me to lose weight so far. Come like my facebook page Get Healthy with Carol to keep on top of what we have to offer as far as products and if you want to make addl income from home doing so too.

Jim P.

My son is using the Metaboliq system and has seen dramatic weight-loss without loss of lean muscle mass. A close female friend of mine also uses the Metaboliq system and, in the first two weeks alone, has lost an average of 2lbs a day and has already gone down 2 pants sizes. She claims that she does not find herself feeling hungry in between shakes, bars, etc. she eats a sensible dinner and vegan exercising again.
