Sweden's favorite weight loss pill.
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.
- 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
- Slow, healthy weight loss
- 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
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.
- 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
- Low-fat yogurt mixed with a handful of berries
- 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
- Veggies & hummus
- 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.Common Misspellings
