"... hi, just bought ripped fuel 5x yesterday. just wanted to ask if its ok to take it even when i dont have proper exercise plan, i cycle to and from work around 15mins each way thoug. is it enough to be considered exercise while taking ripped fuel?"


November 14, 2015
response by Geoorgie

The cardio with your bike it OK, but do try to do more such as walking more, perhaps jumping jacks at home or push ups, squats, etc. YOU DO HAVE TIME as it takes 20 minutes a day. Instead of social media which you probably spend hours on, make this effort. Remember, the more YOU put in, the BETTER the pills will work.

And remember, when it comes to weight loss DIET is 90% of the equation.

Michelle    Age: 18

"... I am 18 5'6" and 125 pounds. Working out is one of my favorite things to do. I am becoming a marine corps officer and I workout 6 days a week and I am in good shape and eat healthy. But I am trying to get bigger, while at the same time toning my body. Any helpful tips and will this product help me towards that goal? And is it okay if I drink muscle milk after a workout? "


June 14, 2015
response by Hank

Using a fat burner will not help with size gains. You need to add more protein to your diet, about 1.5 grams of protein per 1 pound of bodyweight. This should help.

Smoking will have a negative effect on your progress with any supplement. Will it cause worse side-effects? No. But, unless you stop smoking and abusing your system you'll never be able to harness the full effects and potential of this product.

April 29, 2013
response by Richard

This will not help you gain any muscle size. It will help you with fat loss and energy. It's one of the best fat burners available today and if you follow the directions, follow the right training plan and diet plan you'll see some great "definition" results.

"... Okay I'm 5'8 165 I take creatine monohydrate and N.O fury with pump HD and a test booster and I'm getting stronger and bigger but I would also like to cut up a little bit so my question is will I loose unwanted size like is this a bad idea to take this ripped fuel stuff I have a 6 pack now but wanna loose a little belly fat ? "


March 6, 2013
response by Ken

I would never suggest stacking a muscle gainer with a fat burner because while you will make decent results of both goals, it's alwasy best to focus on one goal at a time so your body puts all of it's resources towards it. Finish your bulking phase then do the cut phase, my suggestion.

If you do both you will get a little bit of muscle gain and a little bit of fat loss, if you do it one goal at a time you will get great muscle gains and great fat loss results.

I am on DAY 7 of my RIPPED FUEL 5X supp, 7 days smoke-free, 7 days alcohol-free plan with intense CrossFit every other day.So far this is the only supp Ive taken that hasnt shown any side-effects, PRO.

I am completly new to supps and have been eating as well as I possibly can, eliminating most sugars/carbs and inputting some healtier choices. My question is... What else can I do? What other pre-post supps can I take to train my body, make me stronger/leaner, healtier. Everything aches when I workout(mroe-so just running) and I also want to get to where it doesnt anymore. Thank you for your help!!"


March 5, 2013
response by Nick

Congrats on setting such as healthy and smart lifestyle change.

To change your body it's a combination of nutrition, exercise, supplements and 6-8 hours of sleep per night.

The other supplements you should look at are protein, multi-vitamins, health fish oils before bed and also items such as creatine, glutamine and amino acids around your workout.

Stick with 4-6 clean meals per day (shakes are ok as well).

Here's a great list of product to chooose from:

Britney   Age: 22

"... I am a female training to become a boxer. I been boxing for about 7 months now and I havent lost any weight because new muscle was developed. I started taking this supplement for two weeks now, I am starting to feel more definition in my abdominal area and my amrs, but my weight is actualy heavier than when I started taking this product. I do not take anything else besides this product.I eat 4 small healthy snacks everyday, I drink water all day. I have very good eating habbits, not many carbs, a lot of chicken/steak/boiled veggys ect. My workouts are very intense so I do eat a medium sized dinner after practice with one of the pills. I am 5'2' 128lbs. I am trying to get down to 115-120lbs. In need of advice. Thanks."


February 19, 2013
response by Ken

I am sure you are aware that you may have not lost any weight during that 7 month period, but you did lose FAT. The reason your weight was the same is because muscle weighs more than fat. The only question is, do you LOOk and FEEL better?

In the last 2 weeks, it's difficult to say what is going on. You need to get your body fat tested professionally to see what is actually going on. You may be gaining more muscle with your training and diet combination.

Keep us posted.

Melissa   Age: 34

"... I am thinking of trying this product after reading the reviews. My question is that I am 5"2, and 190lbs. Will this help boost my weight loss? I work out a couple times a week, that includes cardio and weight training. I eat pretty healthy, I use my slow cooker a lot, love it. "


February 14, 2013
response by Jane

Yes, using this supplement IMPROVES your weight loss success due to the blend of ingredients, etc. But remember, the majority of your weight loss will come through your NUTRITION and EXERCISE. The supplements actually works much better when you are following those two items properly. Remember, if you want to lose the weight you have to make that decision and stick to it, so not cheating or late night foods and when you do go to the gym give it 100%. It's ok to feel the burn, it's ok to sweat, etc.

Take control and get it done!

February 12, 2013
response by Jason

YES! You are putting in the effort needed to get the results you want and a big applause on the post-workout protein shake.

This product is one of the best so you will get the progress you want. If you are NOT, then the only other factor you need to change is your nutrition. Most people feel that using a fat burner and killing it at the gym allows them to have a cheat meal etc., but that is the pitfall. Stay focused and dedicated!

Renan   Age: 47

"... I am 5'7 and 130 lbs and currently doing a weight gaining program...hitting the gym 3 to 4 times a week with NO Xplode as my pre-workout supp, MBCAA as my Intra-Workout supp and Muscle Milk as my Post workout shake. I also eat a regular calories intake requirment but my probablem is my BELLY FAT. I am somewhat happy with the result of my training because my chest muscle has improved however I am annoyed to see in the mirror my stubborn BELLY FAT. I am planning to take RIPPED FUEL 5X as part of those supp which I have mentioned. Would that be OK? I need your advise. Thanks."


February 7, 2013
response by Paul

Your pre-intra-post workout stack sounds good, keep that up.

Remember, it's IMPOSSIBLE to target a specific area of your body to burn fat, it doesn't work like that. Fat will come off evenly everywhere at the same time. If you want to burn more fat then you need to increase your calorie burning (so exercise, cardio, intensity, etc) and/or decrease you daily caloric intake. The addition of a fat burner such as this will also help, but only if you make an effort with the first two criteria.

Stick with the plan and you'll make the progress you aim for.

Cruxial   Age: 47

"... I'm currently using Ripped Fuel 5X before my workput in the morning then I take Nitro Tech as my post-workout supplement. I am just a 150 lbs in weight and my goal is to achieve lean muscle. Am I doing the right thing?"


January 14, 2013
response by Nick

Using a fat burner when you are trying to gain new muscle is not the best idea - finish up the bottle and don't go back to a fat burner, unless you are truly fat.

Using nitro-tech post workout is perfect. Remember, you need to be eating 5-6 times per day to gain weight. A high protein diet is essential. I would suggest using two nitro-tech shakes and mixing them with skim milk to really make the most of it. Train 4-5 days per week with heavy, basic compound movements.

November 29, 2012

Yes, it's a good combination. Take the ripped fuel as directed on the box, creatine before and after training and protein right after your workout and before bed. Also eat 3-4 solid meals around the day as well.

November 3, 2012    question
Sam   Age: 19

"... Is it a good to be using Ripped Fuel 5x while taking protein?
My goal is to be strong and ripped.
I workout everyday except weekends
Also, is it okay to do cardio every other or should i do it everday?
Finally, will eating 1 slice of pizza for lunch everyday delay or cancel out results? what should i eat instead of pizza? "


November 7, 2012
response by Sam

Yes, you should always be using protein on any type of diet goal. It helps to maintain and increase your lean muscle mass and the more muscle mass you have the faster the metabolism.

Cardio is also ok, do it after your workouts.

Eating pizza will SLOW DOWN your progress, why not eat something healthy instead? You have to make the decision if you really want to reach your goals or if you don't, easy as that.

Healthy foods are chicken breast, turkey, steak, tuna, brown rice, egg whites, oatmeal, etc.

Justin   Age: 18

"... I just bought this today and just took my first pill before afternoon snack. I heard good reviews on this. I enlisted in the Marine Corps in March, and I ship to bootcamp in 52 days. I need to loose 13 pounds before I ship. I'm not fat, I just have a few pounds to drop to meet the Corps' requirements. I've been working out everyday at the gym, and I have a good diet. I'm loosing weight, just need to loose it faster. Any advice on this Ripped Fuel? "


October 15, 2012
response by Paul

Losing 13 pounds in 52 days is doable, but you'll have to focus on diet and training in order to get the MOST out of this product. It does work on its own but much better when you put in effort as well.

If you are not losing weight cut calories back 500 a day and / or increase your training INTENSITY to shed more calories.

Stay focused!

September 20, 2012
response by Arnold

It's pretty simple, take two serving per day, before meals. It has nothing to do with your workout schedule.

So I would suggest when you wake up, take a serving and then eat your breakfast. Then again mid to early afternoon. It doesn't even have to be a full meal either a quick healthy snack like almonds or a banana is ok. The key basically is not to have it on an empty stomach.

September 8, 2012

Yes, using a fat burner will NOT HELP YOU GAIN SIZE. It won't stop it fully, but it will slow it down. If you are trying to make sure you are gaining clean size, then EAT CLEAN and you won't gain any fat.

August 2, 2012

Take as directed, so two tablets twice a day before a meal. I would suggest first dose 20 minutes before breakfast and again before lunch or an early afternoon snack.

You will see results from week to week, if not then you need to adjust your diet and training.

June 12, 2012
response by George

Eating right and training is 90% of the formula, adding the supplement is the remaining 10%. You're on the right track. If you don't like your results that means your diet is bad.. you need to cut out all bad foods - which is hard to do but worth it if you care about your goal.

About 1 month ago I was at 164 and trying to figure how I could have put on the additional weight. I have also increased my fiber intake and don't know if maybe that has something to do with weight gain. My wife believes that it is muscle but I don't know if it's possible to put 4 lbs or so of muscle on that short of a period of time. Any idea what the issue might be?

Thank you."


April 23, 2012
response by Gene

Are you doing anything else besides taking a fat burner to lose weight? What exactly have you eaten in the past 1 1/2 weeks and how much, if any, exercise did you get?

You are bloating from what you eat, not from a pill. So you need to really focus on a healthy clean diet, add fitness daily in to your day and then start using this pill to experience the full benefits.

April 12, 2012
response by Peter

If you are gaining weight then you are EATING TOO MUCH. It's very simple actually, you need to burn more calories then you take in each day. So CLEAN UP YOUR DIET, stop eating junk and start hitting the gym 4-6 days per week. If you can't make it to the gym then exercise at home, there are plenty of free home based workouts (with our without weights) that you can Google.

Then add this product to the mix which will help you tremendously. Remember, fat doesn't come off by itself, you need to put SOME effort in to it.

If you are not seeing results then you are not following a proper diet and/or exercise plan. There is ZERO reason you shouldn't be losing 1-2lbs per week if you are 100% committed. Remember, it's not going to be easy and you have to put effort in to it.

Stick with it and ask yourself how badly you want it.

August 12, 2011
response by Donald

First of all, ripped fuel 5x is an excellent product and it's pretty easy to use. I would stick to the basic recommendation of taking it twice a day WITH a meal. If you work shift then time the servings where you know you will be awake. Never within 6 hours of bed time. The schedule will overlap a bit and not be exact each day but as long as you can manage the two servings a day while keeping to a low-fat diet, you'll see results. Be sure to also drink plenty of liquids to avoid headaches, etc.

"... Do you know how much money and how long I have spent looking for a product that actually works? Just started using this 4 days ago. I have lost 3 lbs. and oh my gosh the cellulite on my thighs and the fat that has plagued me for so long is disappearing already! I also don't have the constant nagging hunger pains anymore. So far, I love it, and I'm one of the biggest skeptics ever! I'm not overweight by any means, but my body was in a rut and the fat that had accumulated over the years just would not go away. I work out about 5 times a week for an hour or so at a time. This is so great, I'm finally on my way to feeling good about my body. To say this is a miracle pill would be an understatement!! Thank You!"

"... You know I didn't really need an energy supplement, since I'm a little odd because things like energy drinks, and in turn, this, have no effect on my energy level or heart rate, but as a fat burning this stuff is incredible. I lost four pounds of fat in about five days and it took fat from places I didn't know I had it. Haven't got my six pack yet but I'll keep you posted. Btw, I work out 45 minutes a day six days a week."

response by Dizzle007

If you're eating enough calories, and working hard you won't lose weight. I don't think it's actually meant to gain mass though, just to burn fat without losing any lean mass.

I am 5'11 and 160 pounds and I took this product in the past, and had awesome results and got really ripped. Now I purchased it again in hopes to get more defined, but I don't want to lose any weight, I am actually trying to gain weight. Do you think its okay to take this with Whey protein and Creatine shakes?

"... I have lost about 15 pounds since doing 10 weeks of p90x but still have some weight to lose off my stomach, I bought this product since i have tried the original in the past with good results, so I am hoping this will help me get rid of that stubborn fat around my belly along with a clean diet. Will keep posted! Has anyone else been using this along with the p90x workout?"


September 1, 2011
response by Jackson

Excellent, another great story with regards to p90x! I have read so many good stories with that, congrats on your success!

Yes, adding ripped fuel 5x will dramatically help your fat burning rate, I would expect 1-3 pounds per week depending on your diet and fitness plans. I am leaning towards expecting the higher values as you are already committed to the p90x plan!

Keep us posted on your results!

"... I just purchased this product. I took my first pill this morning and followed with two hardboiled eggs and a wheat muffin. After reading the reviews and recommendations, it made me wonder about how I should use it now. My current schedule does not allow me to work out but once a day, in the afternoon. Does this mean I should take the pill just the once before my work out? Is it pointless to take it without exercising afterwards? I'd hate to get the 'jittery' side effects I read about. on a side note, looking fwd to the cup size increase once mentioned before! lol"


March 15, 2011
response by The Enforcer

Hi Pancha, I would suggest on days that you do not train to take it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach followed by some food 15-20 minutes later, and on days that you do train to take it 30 minutes before you workout. If you do train late, after 5pm, then maybe take it in the mornings instead as it might keep you up late.

Either way ripped fuel will work well.

Be sure to stay to a clean diet and add some cardio, or train with shorter breaks between sets to get extra results.

Best of luck and keep us posted!

response by Pete

Please keep us posted on your results. Remember though, if you are getting ZERO results while exercising 2 hours a day with a balanced diet then the supplement will not help. First step is to find the right formula for the first 2 aspects, THEN add the supplement for a boost. Best of luck and keep us posted.

Hmm.. dropping close to one pound a day is very dangerous and unhealthy. If you really push yourself and train and diet properly with the help of this fat burner you can expect to lose about 2-3 pounds per week maximum. Remember, always put your health first.

I have seen that my face is breaking out and I have had an increase in my cup size. I have been using the AcneFree face wash, which kind of slows it down but as for my cup size, it makes my stomach look smaller, so I completely support it ;]

"... I have been using Ripped Fuel for about 2 weeks and am already seeing the fat melt off of my body. I do weights in the morning, alternating from upper body to lower body, I then do cardio in the afternoon, after work for an hour, splitting my time evenly between the Elliptical, Stair Master, and the Treadmill. I believe this product is working, but I do find myself getting "hot" about 30 minutes after I take it. What I do to counteract that is WORK OUT. I only take the pill once in the afternoon, before I work out, and when I start getting "warm", I will walk to the gym and do my cardio. By the time I am done w/my cardio routine, I feel like I've "sweated" out the jitters and side effects. It's worked a lot and I will be sure to post another detailed review after remaining on it for 30days. I will keep you posted on my 1300 calories and twice a day workouts."

"... I have read the reviews and they seem sincere, I am going to buy some today hopefully. Although, I'm still not quite sure what the product is supposed to do, is it a bolism booster/fat burner, or is something that body builders would take to bulk up muscles? I have put on quite a bit of weight due to a medication that i was on for a while that basically shut down my bolism and I have tried so many things to get it working again. Im not looking for a miracle pill that will dissolve the weight but something that helps me get thinner (not just my wallet) along with exercising and eating right which I do already. If anyone can let me know the results they have seen themselves, i would really appreciate it. I will also keep posted on my progress. fingers crossed that there is progress to report."

Ripped Fuel has been around for at least a decade and with good reason, it works and works well. It is also very safe and legal - unlike the other dangerous fat burners out there that are taken off the shelves months after they are released.
