this is my second time to use it within 5 years. the first time (2002) , i was taking 2 pills per meal and i lost 30 pounds within 2 months, too fast, too soon. hair loss, too much energy. this year, i started using 2 pills a day, and only with breakfast, plus a better diet and better exercise regimen. i've lost 25 pounds within 4 months and i feel great. the hair loss has stopped, and my energy level is never better. i wanted to use it to kick off my weight loss, and its working beautifully in that sense.

I am sorry for all those who have had these side-effects but I have had nothing but success. I started at 245 and ended at a rock hard 200 and my bench went from 320 to 400... I worked out three times a day. You have to exercise, eat healthy and drink water but within 8 weeks it does the job. Great product though I suggest all-natural for weight loss because I have heard some rough side-effects.

Put me in the Hospital
I ended up in the Hospital because my blood pressure went way too high!

I took hydroxycut for a while, and like most people, noticed a difference very quickly. The side effects, I believe you can go around by drinking water and eating well, echinacea for boosting your immune system. The only thing I can't live with is my hair falling out. I have lost SO much hair!!! As a 26 year old female, it is a bit disturbing to see your hair fall out so much. I don't know if this is a common side effect???any ideas?
Reviewer: layla from montreal on October 10, 2007
I had several panic attacks while taking Hydroxycut that stopped when I gave it up. Hydroxycut is nothing but caffeine and other stimulants. If you want to lose weight without killing yourself or putting yourself through misery just eat fresh food and exercise! These pills will NOT help you drop weight in the long run and can KILL YOU!

Sore Throat and Sicke Than a DOG!!
This is my first week and it cuased a sore throat and flu like symptoms. To all who intends to buy it, DONT!!! Its not worth you ruining your health. If you are serious about loosing weight, do it the safe way. See a doctor sign up at the gym, change your eating habits. As for HYDROXYCUT,its going in the garbage! Never agian, I learned my lesson not, only I\'m sick, it also made my heart have irrigular heart beats and cuased me high anxiety. To all the people in here saying it does work; BS!! I bet you people work for hydroxycut and dont want to loose any clients or money. Listen if the FDA didnt approve these diet pills, why should you. really, how much are you willing to put a price on your health and life?!

sore throat msucle pain
Hydroxycut no doubt has helped me lose weight, but as a doctor, I have notice a consisent reproducible number of side effects which concern me. I have taken in on 3 occassions for periods of about 2 months. After 4-6 weeks, I develop a severe sore throat followed by running dose and feeling crappy. I have much experience in drug reactions and this concerns me for a number of reasons. Drug reactions can produce serious reactions 4-6 weeks out with fever, sore throat, swollen nodes and flu like symptoms. These can progress to really severe and life threatening situations if the drug is not stopped. I dont' think this is happening with hydroxycut, but I'm not sure. I've stopped the hydroxycut and i'll probably restart it to see what happens. I do realize there are reports of it lowering your immune system, but these are vague. I think we need to discuss more about the side effect of these supplements. No doubt it works and helps, but we need to know these side effects and make our decisions based on these

Work in Progress
I have been on Hydroxycut for the second time in the past year. The first time I took 2 pills a day and I had the shakes, but a lot of energy. Then I kicked it up to 3 pills a day and my heart raced and I was too stressed out. I have been on blood pressure medication for over 30 years and got a little worried. I stopped for several months and have just started up again. This time I am only taking one pill in the morning and I have already lost 6 pounds. I have a lot of energy and feel more like working out, but at a slow pace and I am sleeping better. I am 57 years old and have never had a weight problem until last year. I have joint problems and all the other health issues someone my age aguires along the way, so working out at a hard pace is not an option. I am being practical in taking these pills. One a day is fine. I am only a little over 5 ft. 1 so one pill a day is plenty and the side effects are mild. I have noticed the sore throat, mild shakes and periodic mild heart racing within the first 3 hours of taking the pill. I do hope the side effects don't get any worse as I really see results with this drug. Being practical and not pushing is working for me.

Shortness of breath, chills, Anxiety, increased heart rate and vomiting
My subject describes all of my symptoms. I have never had them until i started taking this pills. They are bad for you. I am very close to going to the ER and having myself check for heart attacks. I read somewhere that this med have cause people to die all of the sudden. I have not taken the pill in 1.5 days and i still feel the same (considering i took it for about 1 week - probably it takes a while for it to get off my system) Anyways, one of this nights i called 911 and the rescue team went to my house - there they told me that it must be the pill. One of the rescue guy told me that he takes the pill and the those are some of the side effect, to drink LOTS of water and to keep my self busy. He also said that the pill is not for everyone.

Severe sore throat side effect.
Everytime I use hydroxycut I end up with a severe sore thraot that always turns into a month long sickness. I rarely get sick and in the past couple years the only times I have been under the weather is when I have began using this product. I also have had mono and wonder if the effect of hydroxycut coupled with a sickness that is sprung from stress on the body is the reason for this occurance.

Problems, mood, anxiety attack, panic attack
I had trepidation in buying it. My concerns were: Too few tablets in bottle. W@ill last less than 2 weeks, Too high priced per tablet. A daily cost of thid weight-loss pill is $ 7 to $ 8 at the prices at K-Mart and at OSCO. No thank you. The panic attack I had the 5th day on the recommended doe printed on the bottle lasted all day-long, unfortunately, and the anxiety attack was horrible -- I could've run right in front of a moving car on Irving Park Rd. inChicagoland. I have read the above 10 reviews from readers and learnt that heart beating is a side-effect for them. Listen, Folks! This could mean death white taking your 2 tablets for 3 times a day. Total: six tablets. Thank you to your reader who said the heart problem occurred not in a geriatric case (65 YEAR OLD) but in a young man. He was 25. He discontinued use, so I am discontinuing use now. Thank you very much.

It works and requires respect
Hey, it's my second week. Found taking three pills difficult. I don't workout extensively. Modified to two times a day(2 pills) everything is super. You must respect this powerful supplement and follow intructions. Mild palpitations and once nausea but I dropped the dosage to 2 pills now all is fine. I'm already slimmer in week 2. I recommend this product if you're willing to drink lots of water and not alcohol or other caffeine products. People complain about side effects and then they reveal (oh yeah i drank a coffe/red bull/didn't drink enough etc.) Follow instructions and things will be great ! Energy levels are high, so don't blow out on workouts. Go slow and develop a new lifetsyle of healthy eating with the SUPPORT of hydroxycut. Just be smart about it, don't go and max yourself out by the end of the first week thinking you'll get better results. You'll trash your body your appetite and comfort will disappear ! It works, but you must respect the directions given.

Reviewer: ali from london on March 08, 2007
worked pretty good while i was using it
im 21 and i used ephedra free hydroxycut for about a month, i have a minor heart condition and my dr said i CANNOT take ephedra or i'll most likely have a heart attack.. so i tried ephedra free hydroxtcut. the biggest thing i noticed the 1st week was a big loss of appetite, and after 2 weeks i started really noticing the fat loss in my arms, and later on a little by my stomach. the first week or two though i would randomly get sharp pains in my chest which worried me, but they went away after 2 or 3 minutes. i dont drink coffee or anything so i figured it was my body reacting to the caffeine. i would recommend it to people that wanna lose some weight just to look skinnier, probly not to someone whos looking to lose 100 pounds or something, i'm probably going to start using it again

death in a bottle
ok started my senior year of high school at 245 pounds , started taking this stuff , walked down my graduation isle at 175 . but not without a price . i was taken to the emergency room at my local hospital with a heart fibulation . had to be shocked back into rythym , i am now in my early 20's , no heart problem history in my family i i have daily heart screw ups . it beats irratically and sometimes you can feel it stop and start back up again. i figure ill be dead by the time i hit 30 from a heart attack , BUT HEY I LOOKED GOOD DURING MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. goddamn diet pills , gotta fit the mold , the perfect body stereo type and now ill be lucky to see my children walk down thier graduation isle . and you assholes that say this is all in our heads need to read my ekg . more than likley you are getting checks signed by the makers of this product. so in closing THANKS HYDROXYCUT for a heart condition i cant control and more than likley an early death.
Reviewer: macy from central illinois on January 18, 2007
It works great for me, makes me look really lean after just a week (with working out of course). I feel really full after I take 2 pills though, and it's a little uncomfortable. It make me a little high strung too, where my hands are shaky... must be the caffeine. Other than that, no problems. It's not for everyone, and I think a lot of people abuse the directions. Like, drink LOTS of water. EASE yourself into the routine of taking it... your body has to get used to it. It's only for those who are serious about burning the fat and keeping it off... it's not something you want to use as a quick fix and then not use it anymore. You have to use it constently for consisten results, just as you need to conistently workout and eat healthy to stay lean. I recommend using it at your own pace, and I hope it works for you like it does for me! Good luck!

Well I\'ve been taking the Ephedra for a week now, and like most people have claimed, it does sometimes makes you a bit dizzy, but it feels more like adrenaline overload to me, after a workout it should go away. As for the runs, yeah i get that in the morning too. Heart rate goes through the roof after a workout too, and i would probably advise drinking heaps of water with it. Wouldnt recommend taking this if you dont intend on doing any form of exercise or cardio workout, mad adrenaline rush.
Reviewer: Ray from Australia on January 10, 2007
Why People why!
I have only been taking this product for about a week. However, i followed the directions, you have to stay hydrated. when your body becomes dehydrated you tend to have the runs, its your bodys why of telling you to drink water! other side effects are headaches, sleepiness, lazyness, the shakes.... i could go on but i think everyone gets the point. you can't take this product unless you do it right. I have just started taking 3 servings of 2 pills a day. I have no side effects. when my stomach starts to hurt i eat something.

Not sure about it
I have only been taking this product for a week and have not started losing weight yet (as expected). But I wanted to share my side effects with this posting. Some of you are saying that "this is all just in your head." BS! I had no notions of what to expect, but I too am experiencing "panic attacks." Strong enough that I have been very close to having my wife drive me to the ER and make sure that it is not a heart attack. Luckily, I have a heart rate monitor that I use while working out and have checked my HR to find that I am at normal pace. I am a 34 year old male and I started the first 3 days by just taking one pill, 3 times a day, as recommended. The last few days, I've been taking 2 pills, 3 times daily, also as recommended. Twice, after taking the third dose, I have been getting this heavy anxiety feeling. I saw where another person in this post recommended skipping the 3rd dosage after talking with a GNC consultant. I will try that and hopefully that will help. The first 2 doses do give me more energy and appetite suppression, but weight loss is not worth this weird feeling. Hopefully the lesser dose will work, but if not, to hell with this!

Word of advice
I haven't tried this yet, I'm planning on it btu wanted to read some reviews first. Just wanted to give some advice on the panic attack//dizzy spell victims. It's not all in your head, however you are letting it get to you. This contains extracts of caffeine, and if you are caffeine sensitive taking in any amount of it can give you just the burst of energy your body can't handle and will send you into a panic attack, which in theory is all in your head but it does derive from the sudden jolt of energy you receive and you're not sure what to do with it. Just remember to pace yourself in any activity, drink plenty of water, keep your breathing paced when you're feeling faint and take a seat to calm down if needed.. you control it, so don't go thinking you're dying. I hope with this information you can continue to use the product and experience results. Hopefully I will be able to do the same.. I will write up a real review after I start taking it.

ouch My chest
It's great for losing weight and my enery is super high but my chest hurts, i would'nt take this if your athlete beause it's hard to work out when your chest is on fire, water helps... but it helps in losing weight,but it hurts!
Reviewer: MEgan from Texas on November 23, 2006
Not convinced that it helps...
I have taken Hydroxycut regularly on a number of occasions. I took it for the energy boost before workouts more than the weight loss aspect. Each time I have had to stop taking it because of a severe sore throat. The first time it happened I went to my doctor. He was concerned that the Hydroxycut was affecting my thyroid and recommended I stop using it. I did so, and the sore throat cleared up in a couple of days. Twice thereafter I started taking it again and the sore throat returned. It does provide an energy boost, but the sore throat is a definite minus. I noticed that one other review mentions the sore throat as well.
Reviewer: Jeff from Tampa, FL USA on November 15, 2006
Good if taken right
I took this product before and experienced weight loss intially. I only took 2 tablets twice a day because the extra dose would cause heart palpitations. Gnc clerk said not many people take the full recommended dosage. After two months, when i would take the pills it would cause me to be more tired and nauseous than energetic. I stopped taking them for two months. I have now resumed and take one pill twice a day. gives me the needed energy and appetitie suppressent. I agree with the others to not take the full dosage and definetly dont over do it. the Gnc clerk also recommended taking a multivitamin when taking this product. Because it is a diuretic, you could be losing vital nutrients in the process. Good luck to all. and as the others have said..everybodys body reacts differently to a new product. Heed to the body's warnings.
Reviewer: virginia from pennsylvania on October 02, 2006
I have been using hydroxycut since April this year and I have lost 25 pounds. I absolutely love the burst of energy I get! I only take 2 pills once a day before breakfast. I have no problems sleeping; nor have I had any other side effects. AWESOME PRODUCT! I recommend hydroxycut to everyone who comments on how much weight I have lost. All of you who are having problems- take in consideration that it takes time for things to get into your system. And not every product is the same for everyone.

Love Hate Relationship
I started using hydroxycut about 7 days ago. Not only I, but some of my friends noticed a leaner me. I have lost weight on it but one day I was running and my chest started to hurt. I don't have a history of any cardio-disease in my family, so this worried me. My advice is to use it in moderation. If your chest starts to hurt, cut it out for at least two weeks, then ease yourself into it (start again with one pill and only once or twice a day)

3rd one is torture
I have been taking them for only 3 days, after taking the 3 pill I feel incredibly naseus and awful. I think maybe some people who are experiencing the same thing should try and only take 2 a day, which is what I am going to start doing. I workout 5-6 days a week so 2 a day should be fine. I only felt this way after the 3rd serving, now I am feeling awful writing this and don't even want to eat my dinner.

is this really how it works
i decided to take hydroxycut to help supress my appetite. well it worked... i took it and within 2 hours i felt so sick to my stomach and dizzy that i had no desire to eat (along with the fact that if i moved i felt like puking) all of this occured after experiencing such a rapid heart rate that i almost fainted and had uncontrollable jitters. however do keep in mind that this could be due to the fact that i took two pills my first time taking them (2 minutes later i read that you were only supposed to take one). is this really how it curves your appetite- by making you sick?
Reviewer: nauseous from richmond, va on June 19, 2006
pros but more cons
Ok i took this product for about 2-3 months the first time and noticed a big difference in appearance which im sure what everyone cares about most here. I looked leaner and seemed to lose a lot of fat. However, i did have some major side effects, i think restlessness was one of them but it wasnt too bad, i did get a sore throat often while using it, and also had to excrete (mostely liquids) much more often then i usually did. I also developed a form of the runs which really sucks because it kinda makes you smell... overall it didnt really make me feel that great physically, however it did seem to do what it said it would, which is lean me out BUT! it was all water weight, it mostely just makes your body become semi dehydrated.
Reviewer: lex from Los Angeles on June 17, 2006

If at first you don't succeed - try something else
Hi there - I have been using the Hydroxycut ephredra-free for 3 months and all that has happened is that I have lost 5 lbs and have been able to stay at that. I used to find that it gave me energy and I felt good, but lately I have no energy, I have been feeling very lithargic and and low. I also started getting hemrroids around the same time as I started to take the pills. I have never had a problem with that before. I also seem to get the runs from the pills. Anyway, has anyone else had any type of symptom like that?

Nothing like a good amp!
I started taking these pills 2 weeks ago and have noticed significant results. I have much more energy that before which is really good cause I like to beat my wife and kids at least twice a week. I am loosing weight from not eating much, which I think is in direct conjunction with my meth amphetamine addiction. My skin is breaking out and I am not sure if that is due to the hydroxy cut or again the meth. I see shadow people after not sleeping all night (again maybe thats the meth) but I get one heck of a work out from my midnight runs that are inspired by hydroxy cut (and maybe meth). Also I have found that once I am done with the bottle of Hydroxy Cut I can fit up to 14 grams of meth in the empty bottle which is a nice little stowaway. ***this enitre email is a spoof if you are too slow to actually have figured - All you lazy people need to assume direct responsibility for your out of shape bodies and begin to do somthing about it. Remember, nothing happens over night. It will take weeks and months not days to begin to see true results. You don't need a product to assist you with loosing water weight - rely and a balanced diet and true to God exercise - Have a great day - My name is Michael in Lakeland, FL

Reviewer: lucy lu from fort worth texas on April 05, 2006
acne with hydroxycut
I read that a girl had acne, that's because hydroxycut gives you a lot of energy and body supplement, and to use it all, you must be on the gym at least 2 hours and max 4 hours to burn all the energy that the product gives you, i didn't have any side effects with hydroxycut, because always i've been 3 or 4 hours on the gym. Another thing is that always must respect the time of taking the pills, for ex., if u take the 3 pills at 7am, u must take it at 11am and lunch at 12 am, and take again 3 pills one hour before your training, and no exceed more than 9 pills per day, and remember to workout really hard to burn all the energy that hydroxycut gives you, it's a wonderful product!

Works So Far
I started taking the product 6 days ago at the recommended dosage. The first 2 days I could feel my body trying to get used to the pill so I'd have to shit after every meal. Now my body has adjusted and I lift 3 times a week and play basketball the other 2. I only want to lose about 10 pounds and I already lost 5 pounds in 6 days to get down to 178. So I got to say it works so far. I recommend it.

I found that this product does really work as far as curbing my appetite and I have lost ten pounds in about 2 1/2 weeks, i dont get any side effects like the dizziness or acne etc...but i do feel tired all the time, its wierd because i still go to the gym at least 3 times a week but i just feel exhausted and i have to force myself to work out, its kind of wierd....and i agree with the depression on an earlier review...i feel as though i'm depressed and in turn makes me tired and fatigue, maybe its just me...but it has helped me lose weight.

As someone who was used to being fit (size 6) I have been frustrated for years since the birth of my two kids. I have hovered between a size 10/12 for over a year now. I run almost every day and didn't think I ate that much. What's the deal??? I was desperate and depressed. I have been on hydroxycut for three days and the size 10 I just purchased are now loose. In fact, I went back shopping today and I am offically in between sizes and bought my first size 8 in years. I have cut out my in between snacking completely and am trying to eat in smaller portions but I admit I am shocked at the results in just a few days time. I will probably only take the pills twice a day as my goal is to stay around a size 6/8. Yea!

Waste of money
I can\'t believe I wasted 18 bucks on this junk. I had no energy before and now I have even less. Thus, I eat more and no doubt will be getting fatter. I\'ll be fat forever. Should have bought a pizza with the money. 18 bucks down the commode.

It works great!
I have not taken supplements before but wanted some added boost to my weight loss. I took the first pill as instucted and thought maybe I wouldnt be able to handle it. But now My body has adjusted to the dose and my appetite has been suppressed. I love this because I too would eat out of boredom. Now I eat less, exercise more and lose weight. I am very careful to drink the 10 glasses of water a day. I think this aids in the appetitie suppression and overall effectiveness of the product.

Ive had it
Ive tried this before but not to much. It does curb appetite and give energy. I took it to tone my muscles better (im a weight lifter) and shed some fat (18% body fat to 16%). I know that this can be addictive from a biological perspective but from the same perspective it works. You do have to exercise when you use this. If you are on the same diet and sleep the same amount while taking this product you should lose weight. Weight gain or loss doesnt mean anything to me at all. I want to gain muscle and lose fat. This product, when used responsibly, should help anyone lose fat. Do be careful not to get addicted though.

I just stared using Hydroxycut 2 days ago and I lost 3 pounds. So for me it's working, you have to remember everybody isn't the same, so what might work for some, might not work for others.
Reviewer: Stephanie from Detroit, Michigan on February 16, 2006
i just started taking Hydroxycut today and i already got a blood nose (which i never get) and very light headed and dizziness, so i looked up the side effects and of course they are all on there. I usually don't get any side effects from medicine. Im a little scared to continue this product but i really want to know if it works for me.
Reviewer: Jackie from OH USA on February 15, 2006
I have been taking Hydroxycut for 2 weeks now although the first week I did not take it faithfully and not at all last weekend (plus I pigged out) This past week I did take 2 pills 3 times a day, 1/2 to 1 hour before meals and I am definatly seeing small results already. I also have been doing some piltes and cardio. It definatly helps stop me from unnecessary eating, I have to force myself to eat at times and I used to eat all day long! It also gives me energy. Before taking this I was tired 10 minutes after I woke up and just got lazier as the day went on, not anymore. My mom told me about this product because she lost alot of weight with it. You HAVE to exercise and eat healthier to see the results, if you want a pill that you can take, sit on your butt all day and lose 20 pounds, good luck, and if you find one, let me know! I do sometimes feel dizzy or a little drunk...lol.. but I eat and it goes away. If I take them and do nothing physical I feel jittery... nothing major and it never lasts long at all.

Am I doing something wrong?
I've been using Hydroxy Cut for about three weeks now. I am up to three pills no more then nine a day. I have not noticed a real boost in energy other then the very first time I took one. That energy has not been back since. In fact, I get sleepy when I take it. I exercise with The Firm at least three times a week. ( not every week) What am I missing here? Am I doing something wrong?? Let me know before I overdose off of these things.

Doesn't work for me
At first I tried Propolene which didn't do anything for me, and now Hydroxycut. I've been taking it for 3 weeks now and it's done nothing. I exercise, watch what I eat (which I have been doing for years)... I just wanted to lose a few pounds before spring break, but it hasn't done anything for me yet. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Message to Vix
Vix, I am relieved to hear that someone else is experiencing these nasty side effects. After taking this product for approx. 5 weeks I too have suffered from both depression and serious panic attacks. I stopped taking this product about 3 days ago and I am looking forward to being my normal self again. How long did it take for these side effects to subside?
Reviewer: Schwy from Brantford, On Canada on February 06, 2006
a very poor product....
I live in Quebec, where ephedra-based fat burners arent sold in each corner, so I tried the ephedra-free hydroxycut... 2 weeks ago....and i'm still waiting for the pills to kick in.... This is a real waste of money.... A fat burner without Ma huang is like a Buick GNX with a civic engine....
Reviewer: Kim from Longueuil, Quebec on February 06, 2006
its good....but be carefull
I started taking this product last year with the help of my personal trainer, and i found the results fantastic...he told me only to stay on the product for 3 weeks, which i did, and i felt great and lost loads of weight.... I then decided to re-take this product without the help of my personal trainer this year, and with regular gym visits i still found the results amazing and incredably addictive. But then found it very hard to come off this product and stayed on the tablets for what i think was too long (6 weeks)...I am now experiencing some nasty side effects such as nervousness, panic attacks and depression!!! and believe me I am a very confident young lady and Im not used to these sorts of feelings!!!! I think this product really works but I also think you should take it under guidance and supervision!!! Has anyone else experienced similar side effects???

It doesn't work for me...
I've been following a pretty strict diet and besides being an asian who doesn't really eat alot. I've took the hydroxycut for about half a month and I make it a point to jog for about half an hour at least 3 times a week. Somehow it doesn't shed any weight on me and on the contrary it's putting me on with more weight. When I stopped taking this product I began to lose weight with the constant excercise... Weird...

It only works if you let it
It can work, but you need to put in the time at the gym and watch your diet. This stuff isn't magic.
Reviewer: Cory Timmons from Nova Scotia, Canada on November 01, 2005
It worked for me
It has cut down my appetite drastically and I am the type that eats out of boredom. I have lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks.
Reviewer: Cassandrabrooke from Costa Mesa , CA on October 16, 2005
I took this produst for 2 months before I went on spring break.. It gave me the energy to get my butt to the gym every day. I was in the best shape of my life! I only lost like 10lbs, but I gained soo much muscle, people need to rember to workout w/ theese pills! even if its walking around the block on your lunnch break!
Reviewer: kate from SD on July 09, 2005
Better than Animal Cuts...but not much.
It seems that this product isn't very effective if you only need to lose about 10 pounds. I suggest using Redline RDT by VPX Sports (don't think it's sold on this site) over this product if you fit into that category of desired weight loss. If you're just looking for more definition, then i highly recommend using a Nitric Oxide boosting product such as NO-Xplode by BSN, Super Pump250, or the more powerful Nitrix by BSN.

No results yet...... :-(
I'm an avid gym-goer! I was recently in a car accident, which dramatically reduced my workouts. I've probably gained about 5-10 lbs. I'm still going to the gym 5-6 days a week, but my work-outs are less intense then they would normally be. Since I've been frustrated in gaining weight, I decided to try Hydroxycut. (wishing it still had ephedra) So far, I haven't lost any weight....& am wondering if I'm experiencing side effects??......my skin has been breaking out (doesn't usually) & I've been feeling nauseous a lot. Anyone else experience these kinds of side effects???? Thanks!! (Still taking it..& still hopeful!)
Reviewer: Christen from NY on March 30, 2005
Worked Really Well
I was about 155 lbs at 5'7. i decided to take this supplement and in a couple of weeks i was at about 145. i could already see my 6 pack that ive always wanted. hydroxycut really helped me.
Reviewer: Sam Gomez from Brea, CA USA on March 29, 2005
I have never taken any kind of weight loss supplement before but i have noticed my tummy getting a little soft lately and I really wanted to get back in shape as quickly as possible so a friend reccommended i try it. The first time I took it I had been feeling kinda lethargic all day and about 30 minutes after taking the first capsule I felt like a million bucks. It does wonders for curbing your appetite as well. I have always been one to eat when im bored, or upset, or just if there was food around, but not with hydroxycut. I can go all day without snacking, and could probably eat only once a day if I knew that it wouldn't affect my metabolism. I am SO pleased with this product....and that is saying a lot from a skeptic. I was 140 when i started taking the capsules, adn 5'7'' and after 2 weeks i have lost 8 lbs. That is ALOT of weight for someone that was within a normal weight range to start out with. I am so pleased with this product, and im also pleased to know that after 2 weeks i only have a few more lbs to go till i have my rock hard body back once again ;)

NOT SEEING RESULTS YET
CURBS MY APPETITE BUT GETS MY HEART RACING SOMETIMES. I FEEL GOOD WHEN I TAKE IT B.C IM HOPING WHEN I DO EAT, IT WILL BREAK IT DOWN FASTER AND KEEP MY METAB.FASTER. NO RESULTS AS OF YET..
Reviewer: SKINNY GIRL GONE CHUBBY from NJ on March 10, 2005
Good so far....
I have been on a week now and lost a pound and a half of fat. I lift weights regularly and am putting on muscle while trying to lose fat. This product has pretty much curbed my apitie like it is supposed to but not like the effedra used to I can still eat when it is meal time. Have tried numerouse supplements and so far this is the best fat loss supplement.

GIVE IT A CHANCE
I HAVE BEEN USING HYDROXYCUT FOR ABOUT 2 1/2 WEEKS AND I HAVE NOT LOST ANY WEIGHT, HOWEVER I HAVE LOST INCHES.. AND THE RESULTS ARE INDEED NOTICEABLE... CANT WAIT FOR ANOTHER 2 1/2 WEEKS TO COME.. AND I ONLY TAKE 2 PILLS 2 TIMES A DAY
Reviewer: QUEEN B from OHIO on February 03, 2005
Works Great but did you know this
It works extremely great. It sheds the weight extremely quick, but I bet you didn't know this. I have a good reason not to buy this product. Hydroxycut has been out for about 3-4 years. It takes at least 10 years until people know if a product is actually safe without any side effects. Over 150 people have died, and they found out that there is a chemical found in Hydroxycut that caused their death. If you don't believe me, whatch the news. They are banning the sale of Hydroxycut after 2005. They also said that the people who took it only took one bottle. I have taken 16 bottles of it. 210 caps in each one too. Just be careful if you still want to take the product. Also when you take it, make sure that you don't play any sports that envolve alot of running b/c your heart will beat so fast. Don't believe me, try it. You won't last 2 minutes sprinting down the court, b/c your heart will hurt so bad. Just be careful. I recomend German Creatine POWDER. It has to be powder b/c it is the best. I get all my stuff at Nutrition express. Look it up on the net and have them send you a magazine and you will get good deals.
Reviewer: Casey Greenway from West Virginia on December 12, 2004
I lost only 4 pounds in 3 weeks. No increase in energy or nothing. The previous edition with Ephedra worked alot better. Don't believe the hype, everbody is different.
Reviewer: Curry from Iraq on October 03, 2004
This product does not work-buy another fat burner-this one is all just models and hype!
Reviewer: itrain2PA from Pa on September 08, 2004
waste of money
I was on a strict diet/ exercise program for weeks. I wanted to speed up the weight loss so I took hydroxycut and the only thing I lossed with this thing was $40. This thing does not add energy, raise metabolism, or burn fat. Not only that but its a hassle having to take 9 thats right 9 pills a day. If your going to spend money on something you might as well spend it on protein shakes (Protein burns carbs). This product is definitely a lost cause.

Another waste of money
I only had about 10 pounds to loose and this product could not even help w/that. I am extremely active and in Martial Arts, walking, a single mom, work and attend school(so I dont sit on my butt). I lost 0 lbs and had no increase in energy at all.

From a 50 y.o.: "Hydroxycut does work"
I lost 32lbs in 6 wks, I take the doses and I exercise/lift weights 3-4 times a week and I cut way back on my carb intake. I went from a size 14 to a size 8. I love it when people say that I look around 36y.o. It makes me feel great!
Reviewer: Sherry Hill from Canandaigua, New York on March 14, 2004
It cut my appetite a lot. I also feel stronger and have more energy. I think the old formula was better at enhancing workouts.
