I have only been taking Hydroxycut for 9 days, but I have lost 3 lbs already. I am dieting (only eating fruits, vegies, lean meats, etc), but haven't exercised at all yet. I definitely noticed a difference in the sugar cravings....they aren't there anymore. I used to drink at least 2 cans of Mt. Dew a day and some chocolate. I now only have an 8 oz. can in the morning...couldn't completely give it up :) I do have to admit I feel nauseous at times, but I figure that will eventually go away.

Well tomorrow will be 1week, I must agree on the sugar cravings are totally gone and I'm not really hungry so I don't snack as much. This week I have to start exercising, and then I'm sure I'll start dropping lbs.

I started Hydroxi Cut 2 days ago and I have noticed that I have already lost 2 lbs. This product is helping me not want sugar. I am a chocolate and soda fonatic and I have not had either in 2 days! I started excercising today and am trying to find the right diet for me. I have 3 kids, go to school full time and work full time, so lossing weight will help me boost my self esteem. I weighed 125 before kids and now weigh 181. My goal is to go to at least 135. Ill keep you up to date on my progress.

I just started taking Hydroxycut yesterday. I follow a plan of working out 5 days a week for an hour and a half each day (cardio and strength training). I also eat a healthy diet, but am looking for that extra boost in weight loss....

Try to remember its not about the WEIGHT you lost its about the FAT you lose. :)

I don't see any result after I tried for 10 days. I've very good appetite and it doesn't help me to control it.

i have tried this and I lost 9 pounds in ONE WEEK, i swear. I excersized 100 minutes for 6x a week, i ate a lot, but healthy food i needed in my system. I chewed eat bite slowly so it would be more quicker to loose. I drank lots of water to keep me hydrated and got lots of sleep, I felt so great ! If you strive and you lecture your diet, then you will succeed. Believe in yourself and strive towards your goal :D

Day 3, just wondering if people have noticed a weightloss after they starting take the 2pills 3x day, I jumped on the scale this am and no change.

alex

it has been three weeks and i have been using it everyday. in three weeks, i lost 3 pounds, but it could be just water. not sure. however, it cuts my appetites for sure. so, losing one pounds per week???!!!! well, then, i got 7 more weeks to go. Also, it does not give me the energy that other people claims to have by taking the pills......

Bought the HC Caff. Free.
I know you need to drink lots of water with it, but I could not tolerate the headaches after only 1 day.
Might try again in future.

I have been taking Hydroxycut for about a week and a half now. I don't really feel like it is doing much of anything yet. I will continue to take it and see if anything changes (weight wise). I'm looking to lose about 10 lbs.

I have been taking this product for two weeks now and I love it so far. I have 70 pounds to lose since having my second baby so I am very interested to see how much weight I can lose. I lost 4 pounds last week and I will weigh myself this weekend to see if I lost about the same this week. I started to exercise 3 - 4 times a week so I can increase the weightloss. So far I love it...

I just got hydroxycut hardcore, it doesnt bother me side-effect wise, but I have a question: If I take two pills a day before breakfast or something as opposed to 2 or 3 times a day, will it still have positive effects? Or will they be neutral/negative?
