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 didn't know check to see if it was FDA approved when I bought it. Opps. But, I figure, if there was anything Seriously wrong with it.. Someone, somewhere, would know about it.. and word would get out pretty quick. I'm going to try it. I'll let you know how it goes... I have a really unusual diet though, so if it doesn't work for me, that doesn't mean much

Didn't work that great. I've tried many and this one was middle of the pack at best.

I took this for 2 months with exercise and reduced calories. I love how you lose a couple pounds right off the bat so it gets you motivated. Then I worked hard for those two months and lost 20 pounds. Then I reduced my dose over the course of two weeks workin' hard the whole time trying to avoid putting even one pound back on in water weight...and I never did. I was off it for a month and lsot a couple of pounds but started to eat a 2000 calorie diet and stopped exercising since my husband has been home a lot...I hate exercising around people...so the weight loss stopped because I was eating regular, but I never gained back. But since I notice myself snacking a lot again, I decided to start takin' it again. I do not get side-effects from it, in fact I get light-headed from my morning coffee but NOT from akavar. I do make sure that any soda I drink is caffeine free though because I know I get too much caffeine when using Akavar and coffee, I don't figure the caffeinated soda would be all that safe. I take 2 before lunch and 2 before dinner. I go to bed very late so I don't notice any trouble sleeping.I still have 24 pounds more to lose. I want to be the beautiful 115...I'm 139 right now. I am the size right now that I was when I got married and pretty much what I was throughout my teen years...but I would love to be the perfect 115 for my height.

Just started taking this yesterday. Though I haven't had time to say wether or not I like or dislike the product, I can say that I didn't even THINK about my midnight snack until I was in bed thinking about my new diet pill! That is a huge success in itself, since I have had a snack before bedtime every night for months.

Back again. Have lost a total of 4.5 pounds in 6 days. Very happy with the result so far. Started dieting and lost 22 pounds without Akavar, then stayed steady at 143.5 for 3 weeks. Akavar has helped get me back in gear!!!!! 9 more pounds until I hit my goal!!! Update again in a week! =)

I used this product for two weeks and saw nothing. I worked out and ate right I think I should have lost a pound or two but there was nothing even after the second week. Did I do something wrong?

I took these for a while and they helped me A LOT! I lost a total of 130 pounds with them in just 9 months. I exercised and I watched what I ate, gave up eating out and cooked my meals at home. No side effects and I'm pleased with it.

Started yesterday, took pills as directed before breakfast and lunch. Actually weighed .5 pounds lighter by the end of the day, then another pound lighter when waking up this morning. Does make you feel the need to drink water all day, which in turn makes you in and out of the bathroom. No side effects, lots of energy. So far so good. Will report more in a week =)

With my first child I gained over 40 lbs with the prepregnancy weight of 105. The first thing I tried was Akavar. It gave me the boost of energy I needed to do my workouts and I ate less so of course I lost the baby fat! I have just recently had my second child and am looking forward to getting back on the pill.

I started taking this product about three weeks ago, I noticed I had lost inches around my weight, but it does cause me stomach upset. is that a problem with anybody else??

I don't like taking anything that has caffeine in it because (like someone mentioned previously) it makes me jittery and dizzy. I would reccomend checking the ingredients before you buy.
