Not a miracle pill but more pros than cons
on May 8, 2015
So I bought this from the CVS near my house but I felt the need to post an honest review online because I know first hand what it's like to try to research a product only to find fake sponsored b.s. That being said, I'm not a doctor and I'm sure that results will vary for different people based on the way that they choose to use it.
I have been using hydroxycut for 6 days. The first 3 days i took 1 pill before breakfast and 1 pill before lunch. I tried taking one before dinner but honestly my body couldn't tolerate that much caffeine. I couldn't sleep at all that night so I chose to only take this product with breakfast and lunch. I still had a hard time sleeping for the next 2 nights but it gradually got easier to dose off later on in the week. So far i haven't had any serious side effects other than the sleep thing. No tremors, shakes or rapid heart beat. It does give me TONS of energy but it's not jittery energy and it's great for a boost in the gym. I felt like I could workout all day and I definitely pushed myself a little too hard at first lol. (Don't do that, if you over train you'll regret it the next day.) I love the energy aspect of this product but the real thing that makes it so great is the fact that it's great at suppressing your appetite. I literally have to force myself to eat! If you are on a diet baby this stuff is everything! It makes dieting so easy because you just aren't hungry.
Now when it comes to the number on the scale, the day that I started hydroxycut I weighed 174.4 lbs. Today, 6 days later, i weigh 169.5 lbs which means I've lost 4.9 lbs this week. Now to be fair I am on a low carb, low calorie diet and some days I know that I just didn't eat enough because of the appetite suppressant in these pills. I also went to the gym 3 times this week so that being said, I think that if I had not taken hydroxycut this week i may have lost a pound or two on my own. Hydroxycut just amplified my results by helping me stick to my diet and giving me so much energy that I got up from my desk and walked around more. So that's my review, I hope that it helps.
