I am so happy I saw this! I have been on a diet pill kick lately, one after another. The only results I've gotten, and they've been temporary, are with the cleanses. I do feel better after I do them though.
Thanks for the info, I would like to keep my liver!

I haven't heard anything about this yet. My husband just mentioned last night that he wanted to go get some Hydroxycut for himself. I guess I had better tell him no. Where did you see the article??

I saw the same article!!! (actually, it's one of the ones I read today for spark points)

Although I know many of us would like to take a pill to lose weight and make it easy..it's not going to be. Unfortunately, with seeing these diet pills and supplements being pulled off the shelves time and time again, the only real solution (short of surgery) is diet and exercise. Healthy lifestyle changes and better choices after years of not doing that.

Don't risk your health!!!

I heard the same thing about pulling the meds off the shelves. They are linked to liver damage and one confirmed death so far.

I just read an article online saying the fda is trying to put a ban on 16 hydroxycut products!
They are starting to be pulled off shelves.
I would not risk trying them, especially now.

I quit taking the Hydroxycut Max for a couple of weeks to see how I would do becuase when I finally lose all this weight I want to be able to maintain it without the help of pills. I think i'm going to try and take it again for a couple of weeks because I really noticed a change the first time I took it and I also think it's suppose to help you burn more calories when you work out.
The top of me is slimming down, but I need the bottom to do the same!

I was thinking about taking something like that for energy because I was feeling sluggish all the time which kept me from exercising all the time. That was until I went to the doctor today and he told me I'm way anemic so I'm going to have to take care of that before I start anything else. For appetite control I was using the SlimShots. Maybe it was just me BUT they worked(for me...). They taste HORRIBLE lol, like "plastic vanilla", ha! But I'd pinch my nose and take the little shot and it would hold me off for half the day, sometimes I'd even forget to eat(not good..sometimes, lol). I would recommend it to anyone out there with the desire to try an appetite suppressant.

I have used Hydroxycut in the past and I still have some that i was thinking of taking again! The hydroxycut did work on my body but u have to work out or it doesnt do anything, i didnt lose weight on the scale but i was getting smaller1 I also was using a different diet pill but u take it before meals and i didnt like that at all! It didnt lower my appetite or nething! Just stick with hydroxycut i think it works! Now that you've reminded me i think im goping to start mine again!

I have been using Hydroxycut Hardcore at half dosage just to get me thru the morning, which is when I work out and when I am the most hungry. I have lost about 20 pounds in 2 months. My heart does race a bit when I haven't had a healthy breakfast and I get slightly lightheaded if I don't get enough water. Follow the directions, start off at a lower dosage. But I have had great results.

I have never used it, but I do need to find something to curb my appetite. I am always so hungry.

There is something that is called Hoodia. I am not sure if Hydroxicut has this in it but it says that is curbs your appetite. I am taking Rapid Slim SX and hoodia is in it and i have noticed that when i forget to take it i get the munchies. you can buy just the hoodia chews they will curb your appetite. hope this helps.

Ive tried Hydroxycut Max and Hardcore. I liked the max better. The hardcore kept making me sick when i had to up the dosage. It burns fat, used like an energy boost for some. But on the days I dont use it I still feel the same and can do my workouts. Hope that helps.

I've tried diet pills in the past(long time ago). Whenever i would stop taking them i would feel ravenous. They are not something i recommend unless you are willing to take them all the time, it can get pretty expensive. I've lost 50 pounds without taking anything. I realized regular green tea, and coffee has about the same effect as taking some crazy pill.



91 pounds gone!!

Hello. I'm currently on week 4 of trying to lose weight and the last time I weighed myself, (which was 4/5/09) I was down 9.6lbs. Well I had been taking hydroxycut max for women, cutting back on my calories and working out. I've had a couple of people notice that i'm starting to lose weight on my top half, and my husband said my butt is toning but he said he really noticed my top half looking slimer also. It was my understanding though that this hydroxcut would help me to not lose my boobs, which I don't think i've lost much of them yet, but I am just a little worried and I just wanted to know what other people who had used it had thought of it. Also, I quit taking it for a couple days and had a hard time controling the snacking urges. Anyone else feel this way?
