If you have been anywhere near a TV during the last decade, you have seen commercials for Hydroxycut. Hydroxycut is one of the most famous fat burners advertised. They claim that if you take two caplets twice a day you will burn fat, have increased energy, and lose weight.
However, after numerous claims that it doesn’t work and has unwanted side effects, I decided to take a sniff around. What I found out isn’t good…
Some Good Things
|Can be bought easily over the counter, pretty much wherever you shop-grocery stores, drug stores, etc.Offers a money back guarantee.Really cool looking packaging
Have added, “Pro” and “Clinical” to their name, so it is now called: Pro Clinical Hydroxycut – a really sexy name.
*Sorry, could not find any other “positives” about Hydroxycut. I will keep investigating to see if I can find some, but it doesn’t look promising.
|In 2009, the FDA issued a warning about the ingredients after the product was linked to liver damage, rhabdomyolysis, and at least one death.A study published in The New York Times said that the ‘research’ Hydroxycut uses to back up their weight loss claims is not founded in anything scientific.Each one of the tablets contains more caffeine than two cups of coffee-that amount of caffeine is not good for the body.
Unwanted side effects like feeling jittery, increased heart rate, feeling like you are going to pass out, headaches, and sweating for no reason have been reported.
And That’s Not All…
Once, Hydroxycut contained ephedra, which most people now know is a dangerous weight loss drug which has caused many deaths in those taking diet pills that contained it. It was banned, and Hydroxycut had to change their formula. Perhaps ephedra was the only thing causing weight loss in the original product, and now that the formula has changed, the weight loss is non-existent.
So, the now people are paying a substantial amount for a weight loss drug that is essentially a caffeine pill. It makes you jittery and spikes your heart rate, but does nothing for your weight.
So, How in The World Do You Really Lose Weight?
I wish I could tell you that magic pills would work for you, but they don’t. You just end up with really expensive urine. There are some supplements that can aid with mood and help with conditions like an underactive thyroid, but there are no miracles.
In fact, there is a great alternative to Hydroxycut that my pack loves. Unlike Hydoxycut, this program is not scam. It’s a 100% free report I’ve put together that teaches you several proven methods to lose weight. In the Health Hound’s opinion, I would say that it’s a no-brainer not to at least give this free report a try.

Great download! I am a real skeptic – especially with downloads, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by your write-up. It makes sense! A friend recommended Sensa and after reading your site, I am (once again) too skeptical to try.”
