Right Size Review - Does This Meal Replacement Work? Are side effects and lack of nutrition deal breakers?
The results of my research into Right Size were somewhat surprising. We took a deep look at the ingredients, side effects, clinical research, and customer search to see what the deal was. Then, to see what people were really saying, we went to read through hundreds of reviews. Finally, we condensed it all to give you all the facts you need.
What is Right Size?
Firstly, Right Size meal replacement shakes are supposed to help you lose weight by using them in place of one or two meals per day for six weeks. Ingredients include Appemine, which is made up of Green Tea Extract, Cinnamon Twig and Galangal. It is available in a variety of flavors including chocolate, vanilla, cappuccino, and berry blend.
Right Size shakes are made by a company of the same name. The official website opened in 2006, but the product could have been available longer than that. It looks like you have to send an email to get a link to preorder.
Side Effects – “Racing Heart”
The first thing that caught our attention is that some users report Right Size side effects. “The main ingredient may be the culprit, because of the green tea being a stimulant. It may just be a little too much for some customers,” said our Research Editor.
”When I used these, I felt jittery,” claimed a dieter.
”When I drank these shakes, I felt full, but my heart was really racy,” a reviewer explained.
Not everyone experienced side effects, however.
“I loved all the flavors I tried, and I didn’t get any side effects,” said one customer.
As a customer put it, “I experienced no side effects while using these meal replacement shakes.”
Right Size Meal Replacements – “Not Enough Nutrition”
Some in the medical community have mixed feelings about using meal replacements, since they can dramatically cut your calorie intake. This could mean your metabolism actually slows down, making it harder to lose weight in the long run.
”I always felt hungry when using these shakes,” said one user.
”Even replacing one meal a day with these, I still ate less than 1200 calories a day,” a dieter shared.
Some people loved the program.
“I lost 15 pounds over the course of the six weeks I followed this program,” one review shared.
“I got excellent results on this program,” said a customer.
Over the years, we’ve found it takes one thing, like side effects, to make customers look for other products. They want to lose weight, but they want to feel good while doing it and if Right Size leaves them feeling off, that’s not a good thing.
The Science – “More is Needed”
The main ingredient, Appemine, needs further studies to determine how well it works as a weight-loss supplement. It does contain green tea and cinnamon, which have been shown to help, but nothing says this particular brand is superior.
The Bottom Line – Does Right Size Work?
Should you race out for a bottle of Right Size? That’s a difficult question to answer. There are dieters who saw results and those who felt hungry all the time. What we do know is that this product is not unique and the ingredient list has not been directly, clinically tested, which is why we have reservations.
If you’re ready to lose weight, we think you may want to try using a dietary supplement made with clinically tested ingredients known to help support weight-loss. And, for an extra boost, make lifestyle changes to include exercise and a healthier diet.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. It’s formulated with a blend of four scientifically tested ingredients, known for their ability to help boost your metabolism and keep you from getting too hungry between meals. We couldn’t find anything negative about the product itself, or mentions of harmful side effects, so users seem to be happy with their results. Plus, only sensible changes have to be made to diet so you’re not hungry all the time.
Plus, right now, customers can get in on a Special Trial Offer, available directly from the manufacturer. This is something we like to see.
