Hydroxycut Review

Hydroxycut was once the most sought after diet pills available.

But at that time, the powerful formula was formulated with the dangerous and now FDA-banned ephedra.

And while the popularity has worn off a little, Hydroxycut still remains one of the most successful supplement companies and now offers a variety of different diet solutions including the following:

Are any of the Hydroxcut Diet Pills Worth Trying?

While Hydroxycut may help you lose weight, it’s difficult to recommend most of the products.

Keep in mind that NO guarantee is offered on these products. This leads me to believe that it may be an inferior product. If you were a business owner and you knew your goods weren’t great, would you guarantee them? Heck no. You’d be closing down shop in a matter of weeks. Do you see why guarantees are so important? I only recommend products that offer them.

What About Hydroxycut’s Clinical Studies?

Like nearly all diet pills companies, Hydroxycut has “clinical evidence.” I quote directly from their webstite: “Avg. weight loss 14.99 and 12.53 lbs. with key ingredients in Hydroxycut…” “With key ingredients” is the most important part of this sentence.

Hydroxycut itself was not used in the study. Hydroxycut does contains some worthwhile ingredients, but they are not at clinically proven dosages. This is a win-win for Hydroxycut because they can tout the study, make it look like it’s clinically proven, but use nearly insignificant amounts and save a ton of money on cost of goods.

No wonder why there isn’t a guarantee. If they included the appropriate amounts and guaranteed their product, we may consider it to be on the best weight loss pills list.

What about Hydroxycut’s Testimonials?

Hydroxycut does have some good before and after pics. Let me quote another very important sentence: “Individuals combined Hydroxycut with a diet and exercise program and have been remunerated. Re-what? Remunerated means to pay.

I had to look that one up. Why not write “paid for” or “compensated?” It seems like they are trying to hide something. It’s very smart, but also kind of deceitful. Furthermore, there are numerous inherent problems with paying people for before and after pics. I’ll let you imagination go wild.

Hydroxycut Pros

  • Available everywhere
  • May help you lose weight
  • Variety of Products

Hydroxycut Cons

  • No Guarantee
  • May contain too much caffeine for the average person
  • There are some red flags, such as the “clinical studies” and remunerated testimonials.

Hydroxycut Conclusion

While you may see some results with Hydroxycut, it may not be worth the risk. With no guarantee, I have a hard time recommending this product.

    The thing with this pill is there is a workout regiment required to see these promised results. If you change your diet and work out atleast 5 times a week, you will have accelerated results.

    I’ve been using Hydoxycut for almost 5 weeks and i see results… you just have to be willing to be able to put some work into it and actually excercise. The first 3 days were ackward because i had to push myself to eat because i really did not have an appetite for anything. I think its pretty good.

    I’ve taken hydroxycut twice, once with ephedra and the second time without ephedra. It worked well with ephedra in it I lost about 5 lbs. Without ephedra i maybe lost a pound or two, it does give you the jitters but I wouldn’t spend my money on it again. Try investing in something long term, like a tredmill. Most of our problems are wanting to lose weight the easy way, it just doesn’t work like that. You need to get up and get some physical activity. Try and have a conscc
    ous about what you eat too.

    I have been taking it for years. If you eat “okay” and workout while taking it , you can get results, It helps me. It gives me that extra energy to get through my workouts. If you are one of those people that think you can just swallow a pill and do nothing else and lose weight its not going to work. Lots of water, eat 4 times a day and work out with weights and cardio and it will work!! You have move to lose!

I’m 24 and 130 lbs and work out regularily. i decided to use it again to help shed a few lbs i gained since i had to cut my hours at the gym due to school. well last night my hands and feet went numb in my sleep and i felt like what i would imagine seizing would feel like. i tried to call out for help and had slurred speech. today hours later i still have the numbness and tingling in my mouth and i dont feel right at all. im actually going to my primary to get checked out. please be careful on this pill

    I have taken hydroxycut with ephedra before they banned ephedra. I miss the jitters from the ephedra. Hydroxycut with the ephedra has worked for me. I have as much as 25 lbs in 25 days with the ephedra. The best way to lose weight with hydroxycut is to drink tons of water and do some treadmill, jogging, running,etc. I guess i lost weight with it because of the military. Example I went home 30 days before I went to Okinawa for a yr. I weighed in at 267 my 2nd day there and a yr later I was 219 pounds and 6 inches less in my waist the day I left Okinawa, thanks Hydroxycut!

    A friend of mine recommended Hydroxy cut. His girlfriend lost 20lbs and he lost 25 or more. But he told me to get the powerful formula, drink lots of water, and exercise. This couple slightly changed their diets and made exercise a regular part of their routine. He also said that it gave him an increased amount of energy

    But the side effects were still there, i.e. not being able to sleep at night. He didnt mention jitters but I remember him having head aches for extended periods of time (not sure if the head aches were a side effect or not)

    I think I’ll consult with my doctor before buying them though, I don’t deal with side effects very well. I’m wondering which is worse, a litle extra weight or all of those side effects

    I dunno, it seems to be working for me. It gives me the extra energy I need when I’m at the gym. I feel a little dizzy when I take it and don’t move around a lot afterwards but only for a minute or two. I’ve lost about 25 pounds in less than 4 months, so I cant complain. I go to the gym 4-5 times a week and eat well. I give it a 7 or 8

    hydroxycut…well i don’t think it works.

    also, make water an all day drink for yourself.

    I’m in the military, 6 feet, 195 lbs. I started taking Hydroxycut about a month ago to tone up and lose 10-15 lbs. Hydroxycut’s label states, “For best results, use Hydroxycut for 8 weeks in conjunction with a calorie-reduced diet and a regular exercise program.” Honestly, if I had that much damn dedication, time, and commitment, would I really need this product? Bottom line for me, I have not seen any significant weight change (loss or gain) and I run 3-4 times a week. Six pills a day is way too much for me, I have experienced the caffine jitters and I’ve had trouble falling asleep. I will discontinue the Hydroxycut, continue running, but replace the fried foods with fruits and vegetables. I really appreciate the candid feedback…only wish I’d seen it sooner, before I wasted $25.

    I have been taking Hydroxcut for a week now and been feeling sick with a upset stomach. I have been reading all of your letters and decide to get off of it for my on safty. In stead of taking diets pills i am going to do it the old way work it off and eat healthy that the best way. U all have to realize one thing it took years for u to gain weight and it going to take time to get it off. For the people that is taking it for over three months or more u don’t no what u doing t your health u might be doing more harm them good.

    I have been taking Hydroxycut for a week now. I get up at 4 in the morning to get ready for work. I take my first two pills at 6 am and then two more at about 3 pm. I don’t take the last two, if I do then I don’t sleep. I haven’t checked to see if I have lost any weight. I am really hoping this will help me in my battle. I am about 60 lbs over weight. I got hurt riding horses last fall and had a baby in July so I have the baby fat blues. With my injuries for getting bucked off the horse I can’t really work out vigorously like I did when I was in my earlier 20′s. I walk and do a few things on the machines I can sit down on. Other than that I don’t get much exercise. The only thing my doc told me was I need to lose some weight to take the strain off my knee then I will be able to work out more often with out the pain.

    So here I am trying a weight loss supliment that may or may not work. I guess we will wait and see!

    I’ve tried alot of products including this one. Yeah it did work for me but after the first 15 lbs. lost it seemed to stop working! So I continued for another week after the stand still of a month. So I decided to stop taking them and all the weight came back quick! It eems the weight only stays off if you continue taking them. Im not a fat guy this just seems like a quick fix for the summer wouldn’t recommed this for some one 30 lbs.* overweight this pill if for people in good health with only a few extra lbs.!!

    I started taking it like two months ago, but i stopped after a while because i didnt have time to exercise. While taking it, i felt super jittery and after getting a rush of energy i’d crash. After i stopped taking it, I immediately began to gain weight, hydroxycut had curbed my cravings. Anyway, i started taking again yesterday, and began to feel very jittery. Today in school, i felt extremely impatient. Like at 5 i took the last dose and at 640 i went to zumba. I started feeling horrible! I couldn’t see straight, i felt exhausted. I went to my car because i couldnt stand it anymore, my heart was racing, i couldn’t breath, my arms and legs began to feel numb, I started crying my eyes out, it was a horrible feeling. It was like i was having a panic attack, i swear i thought i was going no die. I don’t recommend this at all, I stil feel really weak and nauseous. It has too many side affects, its not worth it.

    I love Hydroxycut. I have been using this product for years. I have lost weight everytime I have used it. I want to try the drink formula instead of the pill form now too see what results I will get. If you eat well and excersice you will be sure to loose weight with this product. I am a true believer of this product I love it. I always have bursts of energy when im on the product. I encourage everyone with a weight problem to try this product and they will truly marvel over it. I am a true believer in the product. So after I try the drink formula I will inform you all on my results.

    I’ve tried many products. My thoughts, side effects differ by person because each person has a different chemical make up. It’s sort of like tylenol. Some can take it and have results with pain reduction, others require ibuprophen.

    I see many success stories on this blog.

    I hear the warnings and will watch my body, but overall, in my experience, hydroxycut is a tool that should enhance weight loss. As I train for the marathon season this spring, I’m really looking to boost my energy to reach the next fitness level. If I lose the extra 10 pounds i put on since this summer, then I’ll consider hydroxy cut a success.

    If I get headaches, there is always tylenol.

    Hydroxycut was recommended to me and I even asked my doctor if it would be okay to take considering that i have high blood pressure. My okayed for me to take it so I did. I have since then been experincing side effects such as headaches and I feel out of it all together. I have decided to stop taking this product. In fact, I feel as though I have gained weight more so than lost. I will flush the remainder of these pills down the toliet and will not recommend them for anyone. This was a waste of my money and my time and I have never felt so bad in my life.

    I had taken hydroxycut along time ago (appox. 10 years ago)It did help me back then. When I did go off it back then I was having withdrawals. I called the company and they recomened something to help. It worked. I then had a historectmy in 1998 and I have put on alot of weight thoughout these years. I tried it again started in nov.08 took it for about 3 weeks, I started with the one pill 3xaday and then 2 pills 3xady. Then I started feeling jittery,hyper, sick to my stomach,pains in my stomach,very active,very bad acid reflex.( I had acid reflex prior to hydroxycut but have been fine by taking my precribed reflex meds)before starting the hydroxycut again. so I went back to 1 pill 3xaday and I thought it still might work. It did help me not feel hungry and ate less but I only lost five lbs. I then got sick with sinus infection,sore throat,cold,bad cough,and was put on antibiotic. So I stopped taking hydroxycut. I dont think it has the same ingredients from the last time I took it. It didnt work this time but only on it for about 3 weeks. Im just starting to get better from my flu/cold so I havent decided if I want to restart the hydroycut again. I know I cant take 2pills 3xady and not sure if it will work by only taking 1 3xaday. I also dont want the bad acid reflex to come back when taking it. My adult children are also afraid that its not safe and worried that I may have a heart attack using it. I dont know what Im going to do yet. I happy for those it worked for and sorry for those who it hasnt. good luck in your journey as well as in mine.

    I used Hydroxycut for 2 months and lost 20 pounds, however, the side effects were not worth it. I work on the cardiac floor at a hospital and one night at work I started feeling dizzy and sick. A co-worker took my blood pressure and it was 198/102! Needless to say, my co-workers suggested I flush the rest of the pills down the toilet and not take them anymore. You can lose weight using this product, but is having a stroke or an MI worth it? I don’t think so.

    I started taking Hydroxycut right before Thanksgiving. I do 15 min running and 15 min on the eliptical machine and lightweights. I’ve lost about 15 lbs. so far. I do get the jitters every now and then and if I don’t drink enough water, I have stomach problems. It has reduced my appetite and gives me a boost in the morning. I would recommend taking it, but maybe take a break every now and again.

    I took Hydroxycut about 2 years ago and combined it with working out at least 1 hour every day and eating right. I did loose 100 pounds on it in a year I went from a size 20 to a size 12 but then I got pregnant and had to stop taking it. I am now back on it for the last month I have been doing everything the same as before and have not seen any weight loss. I do not know what the deal is but I am going to look for something better starting next week!!

    I really think Hydroxycut Hardcore is not worth the money. The first day I took it i felt weak, like my bloodpressure was high. I got a bad headache, and i could not sllep at night. Plus i woke up with a bad headache from the day before. My eyes looked droopy and tired, like i havent had sleep, and my faced turned kinda pale. I honestly would not reccomend this product. If you love yourself, and life dont take this product, save yourself from health problems please…………………………………………

    If I had seen all of the comments and side effects that this pill could have two years ago I would have never have taken it. I took hydoxycut about two years ago and after having heart palpitations i stopped taking them. along with feeling not normal and amped up walking around feeling out of my body just plain sick. still today I have heartpalpitations and I honestly think it came from taking the pills because I had no problems before. I would NOT recommend anyone to take these pills. MY sisters boss had a heart attack while taking these pills. If you want to weight please do it the old fashioned way. Save your life

    Hello everyone. I am 28 years old a mother of three children. I recently gave birth to my daughter who is 4mths old. I recently started taking Hydroxycut on Monday and so far lost 6 pounds. I have also been doing alot of power walking. I have stopped drinking soda and eating nothing past 7pm. For this week I am taking 1 pill in the morning then in the afternoon and no later than 5pm. Hydroxy cut has really curbed my appetite. So far no side effects for me I’ll keep you informed.

    yo eh tomado hydroxicut por un mes y me ah dado excelentes resultados,quizas demaciada cafeina no permite dormir facilmente por eso es recomendable no tomar 6 horas antes de ir a dormir,por lo demas a funcionado muy bien para mi y eh bajado 20 lbs en un mes,aunque la fuerza de voluntad es la mejor pastilla de todas

    I also been reading several comments, and what i have read is that the people that are working out, hydroxcut has been working for them right and for those that don’t do work out is not working, well then is not hydroxycut that working for those of you that are doing excercise is the work out that you guys do.

    I am very concerned about the FDA’s claims about Hydroxycut’s side effects. Upon hearing this I recalled why I quit taking the medication. I nausea, muscle weakness and lethargy. I walk 2 miles every morning but while taking this medication I could barely walk 1/2 mile and get back hme. How do I get a refund on this bottle of 72 tablets?

    I took my Hydroxycut back to wal-mart where i purchased it but since i took more than half of it they would not give me a refund. I did not lose any weight on the pills and luckly i did not suffer any damage to my body that I know of. I will get a blood test soon to verify any possible damage.

    The best thing I have ever used was TetraCal. It was the best weight loss enhancer I have ever used. No problems sleeping, took it in MODERATION, 3 times a week, worked out 5 days a week, took weekends off. Great stuff, alas, ephedra is now illeagal because some people just dont have any self control.

    I have been taking Hydroxycut for two month and have lose 27 pounds while on the pill, I changed the things I ate stopped drinking sodas and just sobe water and taking vitamins,ate more white meats and feel good. I think in my opinion that your water intake play a major role in just how the pills work. Ten cups or more to flush your body is needed.

    the FDA has now pulled all Hydroxycut products from the market as it has been said to cause liver related illness, from pain to jaundice to full out failure. Buyer beware if you try this product, you may get more then you bargained for.
    On the upside you might lose weight during your hospital stay due to horrible hospital food.

    i’m glad they were removed before there are any more deaths and serious liver failure caused. too bad people don’t take the time to read labels. the statement on a bottle of these read: “TAKE AT YOUR OWN RISK.” the manufacturers do that so their rear is covered when lawsuits start rolling in.

    I took Hydroxycut for a couple of weeks. When i saw the recall I stopped taking it. I called walmart where i purchased it from and I had to talk to the Pharmacy first and was told to bring the bottle back and i would get my money back. I only took 28 of the 60 pills. and sad to say i didnt lose any weight with it. i guess my lazy — needs to exercise…..

    I took Hydroxycut for about two months. I had no side effects, I lost 8 pounds. I have always been working out regularly but couldn’t loose any weight. These pills definitely helped to contol my apetite and I was sweating more while working out. I haven’t turned yellow (yet :-) and still do not have any suspicious simptoms. Hope to stay that way.

    I took Hydroxycut for about 6 months or so. I lost a little less than 20 pounds with minimal exercise. I had the jitters and didn’t sleep well.

    I stopped taking it for that reason…now I’m experiencing muscle cramps and weirdness in my nerves.

    I DO NOT RECOMMEND HYDROXYCUT.

    Some years ago, I took hydroxycut to help me build my body to include muscle mass and cuts. I was very pleased with the product, after having tried several others. Initially, I was jittery, but that was due to me not following the instructions and not drinking plenty of water as suggested. I also did not exercise.
    After being frustrated with the product, I decided to try again and follow the instructions this time. To my pleasant surprise, I lost 40lbs, got the shape and mass that I was looking for and didn’t experience side effects. I recommend this product and I am considering starting back as I write this comment.

    Im started Taking the Thermogenic Hydroxycut Advanced rapid release caplets for 4 days and I like them so far. They give me so much energy! I sleep ok but not like before but it makes me feel good when I wake up in the mornings. I am very concerned about the liver damage but I hate to stop taking them. I love the energy!!! I take only two tablets a day. So far I lost 2 lbs. But I do a little of exercise and try to eat smaller portions. It has taken my nightly cravings away.Plus I drink lotss of water.

    hydroxycut isnt one of those pills you can take and then sit on your butt expecting results… i would call it more of a workout enhancer… i lose about 50% more weight when working out while on hydroxycut than i do without it…
