Cortislim Review

CortislimHmmm…Not really. According to consumer reviews, it is a below average weight loss supplement. Let’s take a closer look at Cortislim and find out if there’s truth to consumers’ claims.

What is Cortislim?

Cortislim takes an interesting approach to weight loss.  They claim that when your body gets stressed, you tend to gain weight.  If you can reduce the stress, then you can reduce the amount of weight you gain and actually lose weight.  This is not the first pill to claim weight loss through stress reduction.  Some consumers claim that it is effective and others claim that it was a waste of money and time.  We have found various testimonials and only half claim to have experienced ANY success and most state that the results weren’t significant enough to continue using the product.

How Does Cortislim Work?

It contains key ingredients that calm the body’s response to stress which decreases the level of cortisol (thus the name Cortislim) in the body.   Lowered levels of cortisol are said to then decrease body fat.  When cortisol levels reach too high, it is hard for the body to reach homeostasis which can be very damaging to the body.  One of the side effects of increased cortisol is weight gain.

So What’s Cortislim’s Problem?

The company has a very questionable reputation that makes it harder to recommend.  The FTC has cracked down on them for making outrageous and unsubstantiated claims about weight loss results from Cortislim usage.  They have too many false claims and have not proven to be trustworthy.  We recommend companies that are reputable where you can rest assured that your money is in good hands.

Cortislim For Weight Loss

The amount of weight lost is another problem.  People claim to feel a little stress relief with the product; however, they are generally disappointed with the small results they see physically.  Maybe Cortislim should be marketed better as a mood enhancer/stress reliever than a weight loss pill.

Cortislim Pros

  • Relieves stress
  • Some users have experience weight loss

Cortislim Cons

  • Unsubstantiated claims
  • Expensive
  • FTC Crackdown
  • No proven fat burners, appetite suppressants

Cortislim Conclusion

Due to lack of research, unsubstantiated claims and poor consumer reviews, I must not recommend Cortislim for weight loss.

    I feel like an idiot buying into Cortislim’s claims but I really didn’t notice any real difference from my pre-Cortislim life. Don’t buy Cortislim!

    I have problems with anxiety and therefore i didn’t want to try any pills that are high on stimulants. I bought three bottles of cortislim and after the first month I had only lost 2 pounds. I am on the third bottle and have lost only 4 lbs. I haven’t had any side effects however.

    Cortislim and Hydroxycut are the only fat burners I have ever taken and neither one has worked. I am going to try one more and if it doesn’t work I am done. Any suggestions?

    I have started to take cortislim early in July. I combined it with a 1h45mn of walk session from Monday through Friday. The results are already visible. I have not lost a significant amount of weight, but I feel that I am getting more comfortable in my clothes and that I can wear clothes that I could not wear a month ago.

    I took CortiSlim for one month and absolutely loved it! I lost a ton of inces off of my stomach and mid section, as well as all over. I was very very impressed! Everybody noticed a huge difference in my body shape. I am not sure where all the negative results are coming from, but we are all different. It works wonder for me :)

    I just started taking Cortislim Burn yesterday. I have seen an increase in energy and I am not as hungry. I have started walking at least 30 minutes a day. I will let you know next Monday how I have done.

    I took cortislim for three months last year and lost almost 30lbs. I think the claims were a little ridiculous myself, but I’m living proof it can work. Perhaps for some, stress & depression are a major factor in weight loss/gain. I know I felt much better overall, cravings vanished, and I could finally decide when I was full instead of my body telling me I was still hungry. It was an excellent alternative to prescription antidepressants.

    cortisilm does work, but you cant sit around and not excerise. walking is the best. or even a cadio work out. i work for a gym and i see the difference in myself.. i had lost 40 pds in 8 weeks period. i also notice i am less stress out and feel more energy than i did ever had.

    I found that cortislim helped someone like me. It seemed to help the side effect of wt gain from prednisone, and my weight did go down. Appetite was not a issue for me, so I have no idea if it would work a appetite suppressant.However I now cannot find it on the store shelves

    I buy this to help me with stress…not dieting. There is no prescription that has helped me more than Cortislim and I have tried them all. It really doesn’t help you lost weight, but I couldn’t live without it for stress. I have an anxiety disorder and it will wipe out an attack in 10 mins.

    I also combined Cortislim with a workout plan and sensible meal plan. I lost inches almost immediately and a total of 40 pounds in 12 weeks. And it really does relieve stress. I am really disappointed that I can not find it in the stores anywhere, but will continue looking.

    I used Cortislim for eight months or so back in 2004. It helped with two distinctly different but perhaps related circumstances – depression and weight gain. I lost 50 pounds in six months, but I also exercised hard for about an hour daily, so how much was the Cortislim v. exercise I cannot definitively state. I did become less depressed while using the products as well. But was that from the endorphins released during exercise?

    I’m only on this forum because I have gained a bunch of the weight back and figured what the heck! I actually got on line to look for it and I ran into this site while hunting it down. I’m going to combine some Cortislim with some personal discipline and get rid of the weight again. I’m going to use it again, because somewhere in the mix I utilized before, I got results.

    Eating weight-loss pills and not exercising is no way to lose weight anyway. If we had self-discipline in this regard, we wouldn’t be discussing this matter anyway. I’m guilty, just like everyone else. There is no magic alone in the bottle, it is found within us first.

    I took cortislim back in february 2004 it did help with stress however i was just sitting around and was dissappointed cause i didnt lose a pound, then in march 2004, i started working receiving for lowes at night and i wore my too tight size 16 pants, by the end of that week, i remember my pants falling off me and i lost 13lbs , so yes you have to be active so it can work and i believe its the safest to use then the other fat burners. I am going to start taking it again next week, i stop taking it when i was pregnant later that year.

    There is a new stress reliever weight loss drug, that I’m going to try out: Relacore. I started taking it to get rid of a few extra pounds, but found it did something even better. I used to get tension headaches everyday due to stress. When I started taking it they stopped. So now I’m going to try Relacore, since they took Cortislim off the market.

    I’ve bought Cortislim Burn at K-Mart on Jan. 17.09 Started
    taking it the next day. 2 tablets at 1 pm. I went to bed
    that night and had a hard time falling asleep, didn’t sleep well either. I am taking 1 tablet in the morning
    and one with lunch today. Hopefully that will not stimulate me as much and I’ll be able to sleep better. I
    guess otherwise I haven’t notice any other side effects yet.

    Weight Loss – who cares – wonderful on stress relief and fluid retention for me. Even people I work with could tell a difference in my attitude- very stressful job. I’ve been taking it for several years.

    Hey guys, i recently wrote on here December 15 2008.
    I did find a bottle and used it, i just recently ran out but i lost 7lbs and mostly around my mid section within 1 month, I have a very active job so that helps and the stress relief is excellent, also provides some energy.
    I went back to the store today to get more and they dont sell it anymore and i am upset that is crazy so now Im out of luck. I brought relacore and pray that it works the same, but if i see cortislim in a store i would stop taking relacore in a heart beat. So tomorrow I wll try relacore. If anyone knows where i can buy some in nyc please post the place and addy, thanks.

    I started taking Cortislim a week ago. I started taking it so I would not gain weight while I quit smoking.
    I haven’t gained any and haven’t lost any weight but the stress relief has helped me quit.I don’t think I
    could have stuck with it without Cortislim.

    I cant find it and have searched, Every time i take it the weight falls off, I love it. I lost 40 lbs last summer taking cortislim, my problem is I cant find it anymore. I’ve been searching everywhere the stores where i used to buy it dont carry it anymore. I’d reccommend it to anyone who is over 30 and has alot of stress in their life.

    I took Cortislim for 3 months with a semi intense workout and lost 30lbs. It didnot bother my highblood pressure or give me headaches which most of these products usually do.

    I worked in a high stress job and had to sit a lot. Took CortiSlim and lost weight all over, but especially in my lower body. One of my colleagues told me I was looking good. The cortisol blocker portion of the pill worked for me. I recommend it only to those who work in a stressful occupation or stressful relationship. That is what it was designed for.

    Weightloss insignificant, stress relief on the other hand, dramatic. Works great for mood and stress related issues, without amping me up and wiping me out from adrenal exhaustion. Cortislim burn has too much caffeine like ingredients, so I’m a believer in it for Stress Relief. If they would remarket it as purely a Stress Reducing product, they could gain a better consumer base and restore customer faith. Seeing the postings here, it’s clearly more effective for one than the other…

    I noticed the stress difference the most. Only after I couldn’t find it did I notice the weight distribution difference. I have had an alarming increase in girth. I have been exercising and have lost inches everywhere else but my torso. I am so glad I found a place to order again. I did order $40 worth 2 years ago online and never received it? Is there a way to find out about that? My family, friends and students will be glad I found this website again.

    I noticed stomach/torso benefited most whenever taken. I used it when my stomach seemed bloated for overnight supplemental health. Very good stomach reduction. Am seeking address of music teacher where ordered product. Maintenance and control seems to work with CortiSlim. Stress Reduction and CortiSlim works.
