Is Healthy Trim (Healthe Trim) Really, Well, Healthy?

Henry‘s Rating: 1.0 / 5.0


Healthe Trim’s nationwide radio ad campaign claims that you can get “High School Skinny” by taking 2 capsules on an empty stomach 3 hours before breakfast. The idea of deferring breakfast seems counter to conventional weight loss wisdom, but Healthe Trim has an impressive array of radio disk jockeys who claim to have lost as much as 71 pounds while taking the product.

The pack has sent in several requests for an investigation, so I decided to pick up the scent and track down the real story. My findings didn’t exactly come up roses…

The Claim

The Problem (It’s Impossible)

The Healthe Trim website
says you can lose weight without changing your diet.
This is just insulting. You cannot lose weight without changing your diet. If this was true they would not even have to advertise.


The Claim

The Problem (Potentially Harmful Ingredients)

Healthy Trim claims to not cause harmful side effects. Product contains Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA). On May 1, 2009, the FDA issued a warning for consumers to stop using a competing product, Hydroxycut (a product containing HCA), because of reports of liver failure requiring liver transplants in some cases.

The Pack Is Not Happy…

Based upon comments on forums, complaint boards, and on this blog (please see below), Healthe Trim customers don’t appear to be losing weight. I am not finding as many customer service issues as other products I have reviewed, but enough to know that they do some creative billing.

In short, it appears to be yet another one of those over-aggressive marketing organizations that I love to sink my teeth into.

So What Can You Do to Lose Weight?

Well, “not changing your diet” simply isn’t going to cut it! I wish I could snap my fingers and make you, “High School Skinny”.

The truth is that you have to change the way you eat and get the right kind of exercise.

Healthe Trim also claims to reduce cravings (kind of weird since you don’t have to change your diet). This is also something a pill won’t do. But a lot of my pack has found that cravings are often caused by eating the wrong foods. If you start eating the right foods, most cravings go away on their own.

There is a great alternative to Healthe Trim that my pack loves. Unlike Healthe Trim, this program is not scam. It’s a 100% free report I’ve put together that shows you the 11 foods you can eat that can help you fight your cravings.

  1. Okay so I read all the comments and I see that this product has different effects on everyone. I have been taking healhe trim for a month now and have lost twenty pounds. Okay so here’s hhow I do it. I take one pill at 5am when I wake up drink two cups of water. I get ready for worwork. Then at around 7:30am I eat a yogurt or an apple or a banana or even a protein shake. I then consume more water afterwards. At 11:45 am I take my second pill. Then around 1pm I eat a nice big meal consisting of meat, salad, sometimes white rice, sometimes even pasta. Pretty much whatever I want. Afterwards I’m stuffed because the pill really does curb your appetite. I go back to work drink more water. I go home and I’m still full of energy so I do my taebo pt 24/7 workout for 30mins sometimes I do an hour. I eat a very small dinner dinner sometimes I will have a protein shake with yogurt, bananas and strawberries. Sometimes a bowl of cereal with bananas or a sandwich on wholewheat bread or some fish and salad. Oh I also use chia seeds which is amazing. Sprinkle them on any thing you eat and you will feel great. So overall the healthe trim pills are not magic pills but they do give you loads of energy but not the jittery kind. And they do help curb the appetite. I’ve even taking them when I was sick with a terrible cold and it went right away after two days. Oh and remember you can’t drink coffee, eat chocolate or have artificial sugar while using this product as it will not work. If you folllow the directions you shouldn’t have a problem. I can go on and on about how wonderful this product is because I feel amazing. I still have a long ways to go but I’m happy I found something that works.

    • Hey Terron I know you think that this pill is working for you but honestly from what you say you do on a normal day to day basis is going to make anyone “high school skinny”. Your doing the right things all on your own, thats why you lost twenty pounds. Your doing great, keep up the good work and ditch the cost of the healthe trim. That’s just my opinion….

    • After only 6 caps and 3 days my liver showed signs of damage. Elevated enzymes and severe body aches and fever. It should be banned. I am going to let my local, once respected dj know that his paid endorsemment is dangerous and irresponsible

      • Lynn, I am so sorry for your problems. I had to take prednisdone 60mg daily for a year and a half. I call prednisdone “RAT POISONE’ don’t get me wrong it saved my life. I have Heart disease. I was in the Hospital resently and was put back on predisone and gained 67 pounds. I recieved Healthe Trim in the mail read the paper work and realized I could not take this medicine. The 14 day trial is a lie. I called right away recieved confirmation numbers. My bank account was still charged the 79.95. I have called the company many times with absolutly no help. Don’t order this medication with out some research. I ordered on late night T.V. I will never order on T.V. again. Lynn I am sending Prayers your way.

  2. I tried healthy trim twice and it didn’t work either time. i thought maybe i did something wrong the first time so gave it another try. it was a waste of money. eating right and exercising is the right way to lose weight.

  3. I strongly recommend the diet which suits your physique, there is lot more diet control charts but i do not think it will be made according with your physique stamina. Less food can be put more bad physique and harmful to your body inner strength. So please be cautious about your body not for the healthy trim or something else which is just useless ….!

  4. In the 1990’s I lost 17 pounds (im 5’3″) on Metabolife with a no carb high bacon diet. I am now 44 and looking for what I enjoyed as my miracle pill. However at 179 pounds my blood pressure is up. I worry about many of these pills. I have to work very hard to convince myself not to purchase a pill, I loved the energy I had I always felt on my game. I explained it as a anti depressant, I have never been on them, but the burst of energy and happy feeling was great! I also was always (echem) in the “mood”. I assume from the stimulant. Thank you from me and my children to more than once talk me out of a pill. My overall health is more important and feeling lazy gets me web surfing not walking like I should be!

  5. I have been on it for two days now. I am a very active person. I am also at the end of my first month of INSANITY. Which is awesome! Im taking the pill for the extra boost. Yesterday I felt a boost of energy almost 15 min later. my appetite had changed so drastically, by 9pm I realize I had only had a bowl of whole wheat cereal @ 7AM. & even then I still wasn’t hungry. but I will say that few hours after taking it, I had a mindgrain which didn’t let up untill I got up & started moving which is the last thing anyone has the strength todo with a mindgrain. And I was wondering how I was going to actually lose the weight, well I guess it would be in the restroom. I felt like all my organs were going to go through the floor. I know no one likes talking about this sort of thing, but I decided to put it out there. Because if this is indeed a side affect, its good to know when to take the pill or maybe that you don’t want to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when this feeing comes apon you, if so, I hoPe the nearest restroom is decent.

  6. Today was my first day taking healthe trim. 1 pill in the am, one after lunch. Followed the directions just as they say, and no headaches, no nausea, no jitters and not hungry. Obviously since it’s my first day I haven’t lost weight but did workout, as I always do. We’ll see how the weight loss goes with time!

  7. I’m a very healthy, active person still serving in the military Reserves. I enjoy the outdoors, sports, eating right and occassionally reward myself with a good burger, steak, etc. As many people know losing that last 6-7 pounds can be difficult. So I thought I would try something new to help push me over the top. Well, after more than 45 days using Healthe Trim has had no effect on me. No energy, hunger controls and have only lost 2 pounds, and I believe that was the result of the cold I had.

  8. i have tried healthy trim and was very dissapointed in the product! it did nothing that it said it would, i did do it exactly the way it said, drank plenty of water, no coffee and changed what i ate but the most i lost was 5 lbs.! in a months time. when i sent back my next order i only received half of the amount they took out of my account! said something that they do not return money on a reorder! how crazy is that! if i return something to the store that i did not use i receive the amount i paid! i am telling everyone i know do not waste your money on this product! it does not work and you do not get your money back if you return the product.! granted the guy that made the product is rich by now and my comment does not matter but you’d think he would rather have at least possitive feed back instead of negitive but who am i?

  9. Horrible company, So, I bought the pills and you automatically get enrolled in their autoship program. I called to finally get it stopped, I just got another bottle today, I asked how I could go about returning the unopened bottle, they said the 30 day money back guarantee only applies to the FIRST 30 days. What kind of company is this? where you are not able to return unopened items? Not one I would like to do business with. The only place you will see this information is under Terms & Conditions you have to click on to actually read. THIS is a copy Healthe Trim Total Satisfaction Guarantee. TOTAL LIE, this is NOT a total Satisfaction Guarantee, if you can not return unopened products!!

    Healthe Trim Total Satisfaction Guarantee

  10. Nice post. I discover something new each and every day. It usually is thrilling to read content coming from many other authors. Nice one for sharing.
