Akavar

Claims that you can eat all you want and still lose weight.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Akavar 20/50 is a European weight loss pill that has achieved much success. It has made its move to the U.S. seeking the same. Akavar boasts that it is the ultimate fat cure and that you'll see the results you seek without any diet restrictions or inclusion of exercise.

Akavar is designed to restrict your daily caloric intake to less than normal. Without those calories that your body requires for energy, you'll start to use your fat reserves. This will of course cause you to lose weight and inches. However, you'll immediately gain back that weight should you stop using Akavar. The website offers little-to-know information about the product leaving open many questions about the supplement.

PRO
  • Promotes eating all you like and still seeing weight loss
  • Reduces urge to overeat
  • Do not have to count calories
  • Won't feel hungry
CON

Akavar 20/50 leaves a lot to be desired. Some of the more concerning details include:

  • Promotes a lifestyle without exercise and healthy diet
  • No FDA approval
  • Web site offers very little information
  • No published clinical research
  • Does not publish ingredients
  • Contains caffeine
INGREDIENTS

It takes a lot of research to find what is inside those little Akavar tablets, as the product's website bypasses any discussion. Akavar includes many caffeine sources including xanthine and green tea leaf. Other ingredients include yerba mate, guarana seed, ginger root, kola nut, Tibetan ginseng, cocoa nut, rice flour, yellow no. 6, red no. 3 and Gelatin, among many others.

CONCLUSION

Akavar 20/50 leaves a lot of open questions- which really leads to concerns about both the product's effectiveness and impact on the body. With so many diet pills and supplements on the market, it is important for manufacturers to paint a detailed picture of the product to help consumers make the most educated decisions. Many diet pills and supplements provide all of the information that Akavar seems to have conveniently left out. It is also a little misleading that without diet and exercise you can still lose weight. Anyone who has ever committed to losing weight knows that without important changes to diet and exercise, results are often not achieved.

Tbaby !

I SWEAR IT WORKS ! :D

so i purchased this in hopes that i could quickly lose weight after stepping on the scale and seeing that 200lb number - SCARY. the heaviest ive EVER been. so i was determined to change that number.

day 1 - took on with breakfast and one with lunch. still kinda hungy but i stayed with my plan of not snacking in between meals
day 2- stepped on the scale 199.8 , WOOHOO. took a pill in the morning and one at lunch & was completely FULL. i had to force myself to eat dinner so that i would be starving myself.
day 3 - stepped on the scale 197.6 followed the same routine as above and went to the gym today as for light 30mins cardio.
day 4 - 195.7 !!! 5lbs down in 3days

this stuff really really works & ive been taking pictures of the scale every morning to prove it !
if you guys have any questions , feel free to contact me at :

When it comes to losing weight, it does work. The best advice I would have to keepimg it off is weaning yourself off the pills. Be careful though, the product says you can "eat all you want" but the point is that its an appetite supressant, so although you wont want to eat...do it! If you dont you will feel sick I have experienced this.

I bought a bottle of the Akavar from Ross dress for less store (my favorite place to shop). It was $7.00. I am always watching my weight and needed a little help with the cravings and thought I would give it a try since the bottle read that it was a European breakthrough maybe it was better than what we have here in the states?
I have been using it for a week now and I am only taking one pill in the mornings since I was not sure how my body would react to the pill. I do notice that i have extra energy during the day but seem to be hungry by the end of the day so I am going to start taking one pill in the morning and one pill before lunch and see how that works. I have not yet noticed any weight loss. I work at a desk all day long so maybe I need to start walking to get the fat loss started? I drink water all day long no tea or soda's, I dont eat anything fried so maybe I will be seeing some weight start coming off soon.

I had purchased the product and I hate to say that I really do not like it & it did not work for me. I did take it as it's suggested to but it still did nothing for me losing any pounds whatsoever ... what it did do for me was give me horrible physical feelings. I'd get stomache aches & it also caused me to get this weird feeling in my throat, like as if there was something stuck in my throat, which would feel awful & last for about an hour after each time I took the pills. It's really not a good product, I'm sorry to say. And even though they have the 100% money back guarantee if you return it within the 1st 30 days after purchasing it I wanted to really give this product a chance to work so I took it faithfully for the month and of course it's now past the 30 day return limit, which I'm not happy about. This really was a waste of my money & I really had high hopes it would work for me ... sadly it didn't & I'm out the money too. Not good.

I love it! A lot of stores in my city use to carry it and now they don't so I have to order it on line. I experience no side effects at all. I only take two capsules in the morning and my energy lasts all day...no need for the lunch time dose. Every other product I've tried makes me feel ill, but not this one!

I've always been thin but then i hit a point where i got depressed and gained so much weight i was at 160 lbs! I began taking Akavar and I got amazing results. I began taking them back in 2008 and lost 50lbs and I have not gained the weight back, I only took the pills for 2 months and that all i needed! I recommend this product.

I totally love Akavar!!! I started by taking one pill before my three meals, since I'm sensitive to caffine. I have tried other diet pills but none have given me the results I wanted. I also walked (no running) on my treadmill every day, Akavar decreased my hunger and I started to watch my calorie intake. Akavar gave me a chance to live a better and healthier life.

I noticed it in a magazine and wondered about it. then I saw it on my mothers bathroom counter and asked her how she liked it... she didn't, because it gave her the shakes. But she said that I could try it. I did and I got lots of energy and loved it. I lost 1 pound a day until the bottle was gone. I love it. Then all of a sudden I couldnt find it anymore. Not sure why, but wish that the local stores would bring it back. All I did was take 2 in the morning and exercised to walk away the pounds, then later had a slim fast for breakfast. For lunch I would have a salad and I would have fruit for snacks and with dinner I had what ever. I lost weight and felt sooooo goood. just wish the local stores would bring it back!!!!

I haven't really dipped into the world of diet pills or fads. But I saw my friend taking the pills and she's always been skinny so i figured I'd give it a try. I went to walmart and looked at so many bottles and all of em said the same thing. I randomly chose Akavar and within 3 months I lost 35lbs! I stopped snacking, and since the pills allow you to eat smaller portions, I began enjoying healthier foods because when I did want to eat, I wanted to eat healthier.
I also started paying attention to what I drank, which are a lot of calories if you don't conscientiously look at the labels.
That was all 3 years ago and unfortunately I have gained the weight back and have fallen into my bad habits, but I'd really like to try the akavar again and get back on track!

I took this for about a month and became very sick! I did lose 20 pounds....but that was because I couldn't eat anything without getting sick. I was bleeding out of my rectum and it got so bad I was admitted into the hospital. Due to the fact I was losing so much blood I became anemic and very weak! I then had to have a colonoscopy and was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Later research revealed the akavar in my system caused the ulcers in my colon! I would say although it may work for some people, stay far away! There must be something in it that's not good for you if it did all that to me. Not to mention people, if they're no longer selling it and you can't find it.....that's probably a sign! ;) Just sayin'.

I use it off an on but not really as the bottle says. I like it when I haven't exercised for a while and start up again. I take 1 before I exercise, especially in the morning when I don't really like getting out of bed. It gives me an energy boost and I'll only take that 1 for the day. Then once I'm in my exercising routing I eventually don't take them.
