CUUR

Sweden's favorite weight loss pill.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

CUUR is an all-natural herbal supplement created by scientists in Sweden to promote thermogenic reactions in the body to promote weight loss. Composed of green tea, birch leaf, yerba mate and coleus forskohlii, the combination is safe, natural and according to clinical trials, effective in promoting a slow and healthy weight loss in individuals who also follow a sensible eating and exercise program.

While marketing to the celeb-crazed public, CUUR has teamed up with personal trainer to the stars Valerie Waters, who features prominently in US Magazine, both in print and online. As an added boost of credibility, the formula in CUUR was compiled by Dr. Marcin Krotkiewski, a world renowned obesity researcher in Sweden, and self-avowed "Father of European Weight Management Research." Incidentally, next time your well-meaning, slightly senile great-aunt reminds you that you are "apple shaped" or "pear shaped," we evidently have Dr. Krotkiewski to thank for those delightful categorizations.

PRO
  • CUUR is side-effect free
  • Users feel more energy and are able to complete day-to-day tasks with more efficiency
  • Claims to suppress sugar and carbohydrate cravings, which could be a boon for carb-cravers
  • All-natural
  • Slow, healthy weight loss
CON
  • User still needs to have the discipline to follow a sensible food and activity program in order to see results
  • Must remember to take one pill before every meal, and must remember to not skip meals
  • Contains caffeine- individuals with caffeine sensitivity may have trouble falling asleep if taken to close to bedtime
INGREDIENTS

CUUR is an all-natural supplement, which is ideal when taking diet supplements. These natural ingredients include green tea, birch leaf, yerba mate and coleus forskohlii. Beware of the caffeine content from the green tea.

Yerba Mate in particular has been something that South Americans have used for centuries to increase activity and overall well-being. Green Tea, or specifically EGCG, is a proven fat burner and a metabolism booster.

DIET and NUTRITION

CUUR claims to be the "Swedish Secret" to proven weight loss, but upon further research, the secret seems to be a healthy dose of good ole common sense. Take a look at this menu plan as recommended by US Magazine.

Breakfast

  • Three scrambled egg whites with veggies from last night's dinner
  • 1 piece high fiber toast
  • Take with one CUUR and 8 oz. of water

Mid-Morning snack

  • Low-fat yogurt mixed with a handful of berries

Lunch

  • 4-5 oz. grilled chicken
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green beans
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • Take with one CUUR and 8 oz. of water

Mid-afternoon snack

  • Veggies & hummus

Dinner

  • 4 oz. grilled steak served on a bed of arugula
  • Take with one CUUR & 8 oz. of water

The user is responsible for determining just how much oil-laden hummus to consume in that mid-afternoon snack. Just one look at this high-protein meal plan and one could see the pounds actually packing on unless someone was already very physically active.

In addition, creator Valerie seems to condemn pasta, which for some individuals trying to lose weight, a life without pasta would be a fate worse than death. Does CUUR work for the average couch potato? Well, the marketing claims that CUUR gives you "CUURage" to get up and run around the block.

EXERCISE

Valerie has this part all figured out for you too, with the valslide and pilates influenced core-building activity done three days per week. Valerie recommends taking one day off per week, and engaging in your favorite 45 minute cardio routine on the other three days. Nearly 6 hours per week of activity for a currently non-active person would equal weight loss even without the added expense of CUUR.

CONCLUSION

It's not everyday that you find a weight loss pill that doesn't resemble snake oil. However, CUUR seems to be a respectable product, thanks to the all-natural ingredients. The website for CUUR has done a terrific job of backing up their claims with clinical trials, and the parent company, Scandanavian Clinical Nutrition, is on target to donate nearly $750,000 annually toward obesity research.

For someone who is already active and following a healthy meal program, but experiencing a plateau or wants to look more defined and lean, CUUR could be exactly what you are looking for.

It's a great supplement for extra energy but be sure to take it with food and the entire serving or an entire pill isn't always needed. It's best to start by opening one pill and digesting only about half of its contents in order to see how it affects you. Also caffeine has about a six hour half life so you don't want to take this too late in the day. I'd recommend half a pill about 30 minutes to 1 hour b4 ur workout and definitely after you have food in ur stomach. If you're taking ANYTHING on an empty stomach you are more than likely tearing up the lining of your stomach.

This pill is definitely when supplemented along a regular exercise program. I use it to give me that extra boost in the gym. I never expected this pill to miraculously dissolve the fat from my body and of course it did not. I only take half of one pill and it gives me enough energy to get through my workout usually being a combination of a 2 miles jog and moderate to heavy weight lifting for about 1.5 hours. Of course others may require more in order to get the energy benefits but it definitely helps motivate in the gym.

I have been taken the CUUR diet pills for the past eight months and combined it with a fairly aggressive exercise program for the past 11 months and have lost 35 pounds. For me, the pills have worked very well with no side effects, whatsoever. I'm very pleased with the product.

The reason Swedes are "hot" and Americans are so morbidly obese has less to do with Cuur and more to do with our goofy, super-size-me, addictions to fast food. And they are very industrious people, or have been historically. I'm half Swede and have been there many times. They eat better, are more active and aren't being pummeled constantly with ads by Ronald McDonald or the Burger King.

If this is a Swedish product, why do they use a Navajo in the commercial? Doesn't sound like any Swede I've ever heard.

My only concern is the caffiene....could it cause anxiety?
