CAUTION:





This " vitamin " caused my thyroid to slow way down.


My metabolism, immune system, and energy levels have to be regulated by a doctor every three months.





Please, consider the long term effects this drug had on me at only 20 years old. Now 25 still suffering the effects.

I started this pill on Monday, its now Friday and I have lost 3 pounds. I have worked out 3 days this week, 30 mins cardio and 120 crunches. I plan to step up the workouts every 2 weeks. I don't want to push myself so hard that I give up bc I am so tired. I DO have more energy but my appetite is not curved much. I still have my sweet tooth. I eat a small breakfast and small lunch, but a normal dinner. I have had 2 babies in 2 years and am going to Disneyland in June with my family for my youngests first birthday. I am currently 2 pounds lighter than I was when I got prego with my youngest, but 18 lbs heavier than when I got prego with my oldest. So I want to lose another 20 lbs (at least). That would take me to 165...I carry my weight very well and look fabulous at 165 and that puts me at a size 8. Anyways, so far I am pleased with this product. Only time will tell. The first day I felt dizzy, but not anymore. I do feel a bit natious the first hour or two after taking the pills, but that only happens if I dont eat 30 mins after taking them. I will keep updating as I see (or dont see) results. Good luck to you all!

I've never tried Phentirmine but Hydroxycut does make your heart race & gives you side effects. I haven't had any side effects that bad ,but it's diff. for everyone. Some people can't take Hydroxycut bcus it's too strong for them but other's don't get side effects.

I am wondering if any of you have taken the prescription diet pill Phentermine? And if so, how is Hydroxycut in comparison? Phentermine made my heart race and it did not work for me. I want to try Hydroxycut but do not want the same side effects that I experienced with the Phentermine. Thanks!

Ok so it's almost 2 wks on Hydroxycut, I've lost only 3 lbs this week. So a total of about 12 pds in 2 weeks. I'm pretty satisfied. I've been working out 2 hrs a day now. Hope to see better results next week.

I also feel hungry once I take them. I take it 2 pills 3 times a day. I do have more energy

I have taken it before, but experiences dizziness and shakiness, loss of sleep. That was over a year ago. I am trying it again and have noticed that I really don't feel that hungry. I am caffinated for sure but I think that will help me excercise now. I like it better the second time around. My concern is that when I don't eat my body will begin to store fat. Anybody on my same thought train?
