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.

I am 52, and have gained a lot of weight in the last 2 years. I am 5.2 and now weight 176 lbs. I started Akavar 20/50 this morning and will be keeping track. I would like to get down to 135 which at my age is OK. I think my metabolism has slowed down over the last 5 years.
I am hoping this will help.

This is the second day of taking this product. I am a night snacker, so the first time I took was 15 minutes before dinner...I ate a small dinner and had no desire to eat after that...today I took one pill before lunch, at lunch and have no cravings for an afternoon junk food, which is another one of my bad habits..I am thinking I will love this product! I am 5'2", female and weigh 158. My goal is somewhere between 135-140, though most weight websites say that is still overweight...i don't care...that's what I weighed when I got married 5 years ago and I felt great then! I am 43 and don't want to be a skinny minnie!!! Average is fine!

This product is good. If your having headaches or nasuea it's because 1. You didn't eat enough before taking the pills 2. You aren't drinking enough water (I find milk helps coat the stomach when you take them) 3. You might not have noticed drinking a soda or juice with cafeine in it, you don't want to drink ANY Carfiene, the pills have plenty

I have tried the product and liked it but mostly for the energy factor. The caffiene dose seemed high which gave me what I needed to get through the day. In doing a little research I came across this link that the makers of Akavar are in a Class Action Suit for False claims... ex. ‚??European weight-loss breakthrough‚?Ě is false. etc. take a look
I was going to buy another bottle but I think I will hold off for now.

i just bought this tonight. i am 5'2", pretty muscular and used to be super athletic. i gained around 55 lbs 2 years ago and haven't lost any since. i was around 115-120 and now am 175. i am hoping to get back to at least 125 by july (i am going to oahu for some surfing). i know that's only 5 months, but i need some encouragement! i am reeeeeeeeally hoping this product works. i tend to be a skeptic about diet pills. but i'll post every week after this to give/get some encouragement.

Uhm, well I've had the bottle for over half a year. I was using it for a couple of days but with a hectic schedule stopped using it! 5 months ago, I weighed 155 lbs 5'2" (I know! it's horrible) Well, 3 months later, I weighed 180 lbs!! Totally do not understand where the heck that weight gain came from! I was excersing about 6-7 times a week, doing lots of cardio. I started working out 3/22/10 and weighed 178.6, weighed myself this morning and weighed 174.6! =] I went through my drawer of dietary supplements, and found my AKAVAR... So, I've taken my FIRST dose today....Let's see how this goes!! My GOAL is to go down to 125 lbs by 7/1/10 (Going to Vegas with my husband and friends...and REFUSE to be the FAT girl)) Wish me Luck ya'll =]

im 5 ft. 4 in. and 120 lbs. im trying to get to 110/105 and decided to try these with diet and excercise. ive been taking two in the morning and two in the afternoon and they've been making me feel dizzy and just flat out sick to my stomach. idk if im gonna continue with them, i feel that they just might not be worth the nausea.

Haven't seen too much of a drastic change, but I lost about 4 lbs in 2 weeks without doing anything. Overall I think its an average pill.

The pills work like any other regular diet pills, but the things they claim on their website is a scam. While on this pill I do not recommend you eat all you want because you will gain weight if you do so. I think this is where most people ends up hating it..

I found out about Akavar 20/50 originally from one of my girlie magazines it said you didn't have to work out and honestly I am a lazy person. I wanted to drop a little bit of weight before my husband came home from Iraq... NO JOKE in 1 week and 3days I had lost 17 lbs BUT I did do a diet... eating fish and chicken, turkey or stakes no pork no ground beef for meat. Had a lot of fiber in my diet as well. I dropped way more then I ever thought and I kept it off until after I had my son (2years later) so now I am going to order me another bottle and get started again!

I LOVE your product!!! It doesn't give me the jitters, it makes me feel better, and I'm on top of my game more easily when I use it. I recently had to switch to a different product though because no one locally sells it. :((

I haven't been taking these since last summer and I haven't gained any weight I'm so pleased with myself. I still however plan on losing 10 more pounds to get to my goal weight of 105. Although, I will see how comfortable I am at 110. I don't want to get too small. So, within the next couple days I will begin taking these pills again. I work out on a regular basis and drink tons of water. Hope you guys are doing well with your goals too. Good luck!
