I have a friend who is a fitness model and hydroxycut had pics take of her a couple days after she gave birth to her son. So she definitely was tip top shape! A little squishy rounder face and bigger arms. Then of course, since she's a fitness model she got her AMAZING body back and hydroxycut took photos of her again and used them for one of their ads. She didn't even use the pill and was paid ALOT of money to do it so she did it. Since then whenever i think of weight loss pills i think of her.
So I've never used hydroxycut. I don't recommend any weight loss pills to anyone nor believe anything they say

Dietary supplements aren't as tightly regulated by the government as medications. Manufacturers don't need to prove to the FDA that their products are safe and effective before they can sell them to consumers. But regulators monitor aftermarket reports for signs of trouble, and in recent years companies have been put under stricter requirements to alert the FDA when they learn of problems.
The products are sold before they are known to be safe. We don't learn of the dangers until they harm someone. If it's not a very popular product, you might never learn that it's harmful.
So many of the popular dietary suppliments are eventually found to be dangerous. People think that it couldn't be sold if it's harmful, but the safety tests are not required for these products. Even medicine that does require testing & clinical trials can later be found to be dangerous. My point is, avoid this stuff if you can. It's not worth the risk.

a lot of this "all natural" stuff is fake too. Either the claims or the stuff that is actually in the pill. and there are plenty of things in nature that can make you really sick or give you cancer, so all natural does not equal safe.
I think they just open a biochem text book & flip to a word and then create a benefit for it. They make claims about products that are definitly not true, because the biochemist working with these compounds don't even know that much about it. Or there will be a finding that a certain compound might protect against something, but there are so many steps that need to be taken before it would ever be used as a treatment. These "natural medicine" companies will just stick it in a pill and make the claim.
can you tell I hate this stuff?
