Leila   Age: 40

"... I am 5'2 and my starting weight was 141. Before I started taking Hydroxycut Max for women, it didn't matter what I did, my weight went from 135 and kept creeping up until it got to 141. I started taking Hydroxycut a week ago and am down to 134, My goal weight is 125, but am worried about if I have to keep using Hydroxcut to maintain it or will my eating and workout (I have a sheep farm I keep) be enough? Will I be able to keep the weight off w/o becoming dependent of having to constantly take Hydroxycut?"

They are both effective. Remember, the key to all of this is the DIET and your CARDIO. The pills are just a bonus.

Yes, this is a side-effect from stimulants. Remember, you are introducing a chemical formula in to your body which is aimed to make your body burn fat, of course there will be side-effects.

"... Hello I am 6'2" and weigh about 180, I am very active and take protien shakes after workouts and workout daily,jogging on some days, I have no specific food plan I just eat wen I feel hungry and I don't drink or eat any high surgar content like pop or candy and I eat rather healthy too. I've been doing this for a while now and still have about 1/2 to 3/4 of a inch of fat left on my peks and abdominal area. Those are the only 2 area's that I have fat and it is not much and has been a bitch to get rid of. So there for I was wondering if this product will help me get rid of the fat in those areas in a safe way so I can finally be ripped lol? and by the way does this stuff take muscle away at all in anyway cause if so that sucks"

Babs   Age: 66

"... I have just started using Max for women and have also bought the lean protein bars, which are very tasty by the way. How should I be using the bars in conjunction with the supplements? I am taking a supplement in the morning before my oatmeal and then a protein bar between breakfast and lunch, do not take a supplement before lunch. Then another supplement before dinner. Can I add another supplement before lunch in maybe a week after my system adjusts to the product? Or would it be best to just stick with the mid morning snack of the protein bar?"


January 22, 2015
response by Helen

I would use one bar per day, as a meal. Then follow the MAX directions on the bottle, no other way around it. Be sure to follow a good diet and exercise properly - even if it's cardio.

The key to WEIGHT LOSS is 90 percent diet. Most people think that they can exercise really hard then be able to cheat with a few meals. This is a myth. Weight loss starts with a diet.

When it comes to weight loss, the three components are exercise, diet and then supplements. Diet being 75 percent of the formula. With regards to exercise, you need to do cardio. Look up HIIT style for the best results.

February 6, 2014
response by Drew

Using a fat burner by itself will give you MINIMAL results. The key is to use a fat burner such as this one WITH a good diet and balanced exercise, daily plan. There is no such thing as a magic pill. If you have a bad knee, then suck it up and EAT HEALTHY. You can lose 50lbs with diet and this pill alone.. you just have to WANT IT.

Impossible to give you an answer as there are other factors involved. Most important is what is your diet like and how often do you exercise each week?

If you eat 100% healthy, you will lose 2-3 pounds per week.

Yes you can take them. Just follow the directions and start with the lowest dosage first. Be sure to drink MUCH more water than usual to avoid headaches, cramps and possible vomit.


December 28, 2013
response by Julie

Actually, if you do your research and you talk to stores that sell it They will tell you it is not recommended for people who are 18 years of age or younger. This stuff is hardcore on the body I am taking this stuff myself. I am on day five and I am taking four pills a day. Two pills in the morning, and two pills before dinner. This medication is normal for you to pee a lot, to poo a lot. It means that the kidneys are working to eliminate the toxins in your body. There is an ingredient in these pills that make the kidneys work to do this. Having said this I suggest you start with one pill a day first, then work yourself up. I am on four pills a day and I am having serious major effects of throwing up and going to the bathroom a lot. I went to a GNC store where I live to get answers on this and was told it is because my body is detoxtifying because the pills have caffiene, which is a diretic. I was recommend to cut the dose to one pill in the morning and one pill before I eat dinner and I should still have the same results. So like I said, everybodies is different. Test it out with slower dosage. Trust me being on the toliet half the day sucks. My stomach and bowels have finally settled after drinking a half cup of gingerayle. I am going to stop taking the pills for two days to detoxify my body, then go back on them.

Jo   Age: 38

"... Hi I am using hydroxycut max. I have read some of the questions regarding dose and it says on the bottle 2caps twice a day, is it safe to up it to 2caps three times a day? I have already noticed an increase in energy and have stopped snacking between meals. "


August 19, 2013
response by Jean

I would never suggest to go over the recommended dose on each bottle.

If you are not making the progress you want then you are lacking with your diet and exercise.

Remember, even without any supplements you should be losing 1-2 pounds per week and 2-3 with a supplement.

Losing the weight takes dedication and strict rules.

Also, can i snack between meals? I had breakfast went to the gym for about an hour and came home super hungry and had a tuna sandwich is that okay? "


July 17, 2013
response by Mike

Be sure to work your way up SLOWLY to the max dose, otherwise you may have side-effects.

NEVER combine it with another fat burner, it is far too dangerous and you body, receptors will burn out.

If you are not happy with your progress, it's not the supplement but the diet and / or exercise. IF you are doing both the right way then you should be dropping 1-2 pounds a week. If you are not at that level, make the changes and be strict. Commit to it.

Yes, eating HEALTHY small sized snacks is actually suggested. You should be eating every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism moving.

Celeste   Age: 26

"... I bought hydroxycut max for women but have not taken it yet. I am currently taking centrum multivitamin can I mix the two together. I just had a baby about a month ago n I put on over 50lbs. With the navy breathing down my back I have to lose this weight or more within 6 months. Please help!"


February 25, 2013
response by Kim

Yes, using a multi-vitamin is perfectly OK and an excellent addition to any healthy plan. Using this pill will certainly help you lose weight, but as you are already aware exercise and diet are part of the process. The harder you work with those two aspects, the better this pill will work. Since you just had a baby, exercise is obviously out of the question for some time so be sure to pay extra attention to what you eat. Be sure to eat a meal, snack or protein shake every 2-3 hours, this keeps your metabolism goign fast. If you wait longer then your body will hold on to your fat and go into starvation mode, not good.

Stick with it and you'll be OK.

I eat a healthy well balanced diet consisting of about 1200-1300 calories a day. Unfortunately I no longer have the time to run as much as I used to. I was running 3-5 times a week and due to work I am now down to running once a week, but am still always active and busy. Will this help someone like me?"


January 20, 2013
response by Rick

Hi Victoria, first of all congrats on teh 30lbs weight loss, that is excellent work and show that you have what it takes to lose the fat.

It's true, usually the last few pounds are the hardest to lose and take the most work, but you can do it!

The fact that you have stopped the exercise means you are burnign less calories hence the stop with the weight loss. Yes, using this product will give you that boost, but please continue to try to be active as you can.. even if it's at home for 20 minutes with some situps, pushups, jumping jacks, walking up and down your stairs, etc.

Best of luck, you can do it!

November 29, 2012
response by Joey

You should try to do the maximum dosage for the product to work correctly, if you can't handle the stimulant aspect then it's ok to use less - but first try the recommended dose. Be sure to keep an eye on your diet and exercise and you should lose that weight in a month, max.

November 21, 2012
response by Tammy

If you do not put any effort in to any fitness or your diet then you cannot expect a pill to do all the work for you.

It will work to an extent, but 10x stronger if it is combined with the right lifestyle. You have to make the choice for yourself, do you REALLY want it. Go get it.

November 14, 2012
response by Paul

Yes, with your diet and training this is the best addition to it. You should be losing aprox 1-2lbs per week. If you are not, then you need to fix your diet, training or both.

November 7, 2012
response by Carl

It is the right product for most people, but you have to remember that no pill by itself will do the work for you. You always have to make an effort with your diet and daily fitness (even if it's a walk outside) to get the true results you want. The pill will be a huge benefit, but it will work so much better when you put in the same effort, it's up to you.

Do you want it?

I've followed the directions promptly. Is it because I'm short? I'm afriad to keep taking the full dosage if this is going to keep happening..."


October 24, 2012
response by Josef

Yes, stimulant based fat burners often make you dizzy and wozzy, it's the ingredients in your body trying to adapt.

Nothing to do with your height or weight, most likely you weren't drinking enough. Most people don't realize HOW MUCH they actually should be drinking. Literally all the time, always carry a bottle of water with you and drink - it's very important.

October 15, 2012

You are on track with the small healthy meals. The key is to eat every 2-3 hours so about 5-7 times per day. This keep the metabolism happy. Try adding a protein shake (whey isolate) to make it easier on the meal count.

Kasey   Age: 20

"... hello, today was my first day of taking HM for women... I did not have really much side effects other than a head ache for about 2 minutes. I only have time to eat two meals everyday, one around 12pm and another around 6pm, will this still work for me?

Should I carry some fruits with me for it to work better?"


October 3, 2012
response by Sally

The headaches are common and normal, you need to drink 2 to 3x more water than usual to stay hydrated.

Eating two meals per day will not help you lose weight, it will actually make you burn muscle and retain fat.

You need to eat 4-6 times per day. It takes 5-10 minutes to eat a prepared meal (which you do the night before). You can easily use protein or meal replacement shakes for 2-3 of the emals then bring 2-3 solid meals prepared for you so you have NO excuses.

Nikki Anderson   Age: 21

"... Hi I started using this product a few months ago but I stopped for a while because it was making me feel really bad & was way to hot to do much exercise outside my home . I started it taking 4 pills a day instead of the recomended 1pill twice daily for a couple days. Anyways I just started taking it again & have been doin basic exercises & walking. I started taking it gradually this time & drinking lots of water with it & it doesn't seem to be making me feel as bad this time. I am currently 230ibs at only 5ft, this puts me in the morbidly obese area wich is extreemly bad!!!! I need to lose at least 110ibs I know as badly as I want it gone fast that realistically it will take a while to lose that amount of weight. If I keep up the exercise & eat healthy can this product really help me lose that kind of weight?"


October 3, 2012
response by Julie

If you feel side-effects then simply cut back to the minimal dose, it works well either way it just depends on what your body and genetics can handle.

If you continue the exercise and diet then 100% you will continue to lose weight and reach your goal. The thing is, with such a dramatic lifestyle change it can be hard to adjust because society has brainwashed us to think that eating only 3 meals a day is ok, to drink sugar-loaded coffees is ok, to eat fast food is ok - and none of it is. After living a clean and healthy lifestyle, you get used to it and better yet with the weight loss each week you'll be more driven then ever to keep going.

October 3, 2012
response by George

The 2lbs lost is most likely water weight, but it's weight loss either way so you're on the right path. Typical results from this are about 1-2lbs lost each week if you have a GOOD diet and exercise plan in place.

You need to eat 4-6 times per day. Two of those meals can be protein shakes such as:


The other 3-4 meals should be high protein, low carbs and no fats - besides healthy fats that come from olive oil or almonds.

"... Hello, I am 20 years old and have just started taking HM,I have been on a path of self-rediscovery and suffered from an eating disorder called Binge eating disorder (BED) for most of my pre-teen and high school years, I had emotional issues that turned into a emotional and binge eating disorder that Iíve managed to recently save myself from this past year in college. I have a healthier way to deal with stress and my relationship with food, so I have newfound self-confidence. I have a heart condition that prohibits me from exercising to my full potentialóif I do, my heart stops beating and I dieóso I am an avid walker, walking 3miles twice a day, so that 6 miles per day now. I am 63 inches (5 foot 2inó3 on a good day) tall and have lost 10 lbs. on my own in the past three months. Diabetes runs in my family and at my current weight my doctor says that I need to lose 40-60 more lbs. to escape it. So my goal is 129 lbs. starting from 172. My only question is, given my heart condition and my new relationship with food and myself, is walking enough? Should only walk 6 miles every few days or only walk three miles a day all week? "


September 26, 2012
response by Brett

Congrats on getting yourself out of BED, it's a big step.

If you have a heart condition, I would not suggest this product as it does contain stimulants and may increase your blood pressure. While normally 99.9% of the population can handle this without issue, if you have a pre-existing condition it might pose issues. Take this to your doctor to be sure.

September 26, 2012

If you get tired it's because you are most likely overtraining. Going to the gym everyday, 7 days a week is TOO MUCH. 3-4 times per week is enough.

response by Vera

They key to weight loss is either eating less calories or burning more through exercise, or a combination of both. Then adding a fat burner such as this just increases the results. It's impossible to "choose" where you want to burn fat from your body, no matter what the tv ads, commercials tell you. Your fat will come off evenly in most cases so you might lose your breast and buttocks first. Just the way it goes.

"... Hello everybody! I just started using this product and so far the only symptom I've experienced is a little bit of headaches (within these 2 days). I feel with more energy to perform my workouts at the gym but, I do want to know if this supplement is continued in its 8-12 weeks; I mean, the food program my gym instructor gave to me, allows me to feel free to eat whatever I want during weekends with the appropriate measure. In order to make this food program along with the exercise and supplement work and accomplish my goal, I have to avoid the free eating during the 8-12 weekends? or can I still feel free to do so? Many thanks to all!"


July 5, 2012
response by Nick

The headaches are caused by the caffeine/diuretic effects, you need to drink plenty of liquids all day. If you are thirsty or have a headache it is already too late, so don't let it get to that point.

Cheat weekends all depend on your progress that week and your overall goals. I don't really believe in cheating 2 days straight, instead have one cheat meal on Saturday and again another on Sunday.

Again, if you are losing 1-3 pounds per week then you can keep your cheat weekend, if not - then there is no place for a cheat.

Ann Lee   Age: 19

"... Hello, I am young and I want to know if HM will work for me. Well, because I used to be 120 and now two years later I weight 175! This is due to me having some very bad asthma and I was put on very strong starodies on and off for a year and a half. Now, I am on light starodies and have not been on any hard starodies for 8 months. So, basically I want to know if I can lose weight and go back to 120, even though I'm not big because of fat but starodies."


June 30, 2012
response by Karen

Hell Ann Lee, great question. First, did you mean to say steroids instead of starodies?

If so, then they actually have nothing to do with adding any fat, steroids only make you gain MUSCLE. But, the amount that are found in asthma inhalers or medications are just tiny trace amounts and do not make you gain anything actually.

What you have gained is fat and that is due to either your poor diet or lack of exercise. To lose the weight you will need to either increase your exercise or cut back on calories by eating better.

Adding this fat burning to a good diet and exercise plan will help you get back to your original weight.

Good luck!

response by anon

It is not really correct to say that steriod asthma medications can't cause weight gain. My mother changed meds for her asthma and quickly gained 15-20 lbs with no diet or exercise changes, HOWEVER: this was clearly water weight. Her face looked swollen almost she had been stung by bees. She complained to her doctor, got a different prescription and easily went back to her previous weight. Some people are given some pretty potent steroids for asthma but you are obviously not familiar with these medications. Stick to what you know and don't belittle people for no reason.

"... Picked up 15-18 lbs over the cold months. Trying to shed it. Working out 4-5 days a week & wanted a nice supplement to boost weight lost. Previously used Oxy Elite Pro. Had GREAT results (lost about 20 lbs in 2-3 months) but noticed that it made me severely depressed, almost SUICIDAL, as several others reviewers also say about it. That is not at all like me because I'm a very positive, upbeat person usually.

Anyway, my bf started taking Hydroxycut and had great results after about 2 weeks. At least 8 lbs gone w/ little exercise & not much change in diet. So I figured I'd try this one for Women. Not impressed so far. As reviewers here said, things work different for each person. It just depends on your body. I also had NO results on Adipex a few years ago but have friends who lost 25-40 lbs on it. I haven't been experiencing any side effects, but I also haven't seen ANY results. Only been doing 4 a day (not the 6 recommended). I'm going to finish the bottle at 6 per day, beginning today and report back. Hopefully it'll work. Eitherway, I caught it on sale so it's not a huge loss.

This is exactly what this pill will do, get you past your plateau and that extra push your body needs. It will help you shed an extra 1-2lbs per week when combined with your current plan.

June 23, 2012

If you eat right and clean you should be losing ONE POUND PER WEEK, if you are not losing this amount then you are not eating properly or exercising enough. Adding this fat burner will help you burn another ONE POUND PER WEEK, for a total of TWO.

Well if you are actually eating and exercising properly you should be losing 1 lb per week already, without any pills. If this is not the case then you're diet is not strict enough.

So I am a 25 year old women with a thyroid condition- I know I have to be careful what I take when it comes to over the counter products, however almost every product says if you have a thyroid condition consult with your physician... I do plan on asking him about this product as a friend is on it and seems to be having positive affects for her, ( she only takes 1 before each meal instead of recommended two). I eat pretty healthy and exercise about 1 hour each day ( half hour in the am and half hour in the pm) and have been losing weight but I have recently remained the same weight, all levels are normal so I can't change my medication dose, I have even changed up my work out routines in hopes of more weight lose. So my question is any of you have a thyroid condition and have tried this product, how did you react, did it work, any severe side affects? "


June 19, 2012
response by Heather

First and foremost, DO NOT TAKE THIS until you talk to your doctor because of your thyroid situation - fat burners and stimulants have a direct effect on yout thyroid so you have to make sure it is safe for you to use and also if you are using any medications for the thyroid if there will be any conflicts with the ingredients.

I am fully aware of the importance of contacting and talkig to my doctor first, I have had my thyroid problem for 10 years now and contact him with any concerns, I was more so jjust looking for people's experiences with it if they had a thyroid condition and took it that's all.

"... About me: Iím a 26 year old female. Iím 5í2Ē & my starting weight was 125lbs. I eat a balanced diet (1200-1300/weekday, 1500/weekend), and while I donít have a very active lifestyle (desk job, two hour commute), I make every work-out count.

Hereís my experience after one week with Hydroxycut Max for Women:
The first day I trembled all day. The first four nights I had difficulty falling/staying asleep. I woke up nearly every hour. Each morning, I woke up feeling great, as if I had slept all night. I awoke alert and ready for the day. I can definitely attest to it as an energy booster.

From day one, it completely suppressed my appetite/cravings, which helped me continue to make good decisions throughout the day. I do recommend eating between meals. Everyone knows that your metabolism functions best when constantly fueled. Between meals I eat a piece of fruit, or have an EAS carb control shake. My meals are 250-350 calories. My snakes are 90-110 calories. Donít believe the fuss that having a snack will kill your progress, especially by those who claim it will ruin a weekís worth of effort. Unless your snack is an ice cream sundae, it will not hinder your progress.

I did lose 1.5lbs; however, I ate 1200-1300 calories a day and I worked-out an average of 30-45 minutes a day. According to my heart-rate-monitor, my total calorie burn for the week was 2450. I am not convinced that my progress would have been any different if I hadnít taken the supplement.

Here is one very unique thing Ė I decided to quit smoking a week ago and, like the food cravings, the nicotine cravings are completely gone. I believe the supplement has helped me to quit smoking, which is certainly a bonus.

Some advice: there is a lot of misinformation on this forum, so donít believe everything you read.

I'll check back in a week or two. Good luck everyone!

You answered your own question. SNACKS! I know it's hard and most women that I have trained think a little bad snack here and there doesn't do anything bad, but it does.

I would wait 4-6 weeks between using another bottle. Just to let your receptor recover otherwise you won't really get the same effects.

In the meanwhile, continue with the gym, up your cardio and watch what you eat. If you are doing it right then you should be losing about a pound a week just with those factors alone - if you are not then you are not putting enough effort in.

10lbs is very reasonable and should take 4-6 weeks or so if you are committed. If you don't see the results you want then you either need to burn more calories (more physical activity) or eat less calories - so cut back on your food. Remember, even a small cheat can throw off your progress for days.

Adding hydroxycut will help however. Just follow the directions, drink plenty of water and you'll be fine.

If you are having trouble sleeping it's because either you have taken it too close to sleep time or you are very sensitive to stimulants. What you need to do is not take it past early afternoon or cut back the dosage.

But you need to be taking the SAME dose each day, regardless if you workout or not. Hydroxycut MAX works around the clock everyday and changing the doses will mess things up.

I know it will be a lot slower but hey I know me, I have to feel good about what I am doing to continue it. I think maybe its the fact that I have never been a coffee drinker, what ever the reason is, I will only do 2 pills a day but for everyone else I definately recommend it.

First, be sure that you are following the days 1-5 gradual dosing increase as is directed - to build up your tolerance slowly to the max level.

For the best time to take them - well again as directed be sure to do so about 30 minutes before a main meal. So breakfast and lunch would be the best bet. Unless you can get in a good sized meal mid-afternoon.

Thanks for sharing your success, that is so motivating.

Usually you should wait at least half the time you were using the product for your off time - up to the same time. This is good for your health and for your receptors to recharge so the next time you run the product again you will get the same great results.

Remember, keep up your diet and exercise during the off time and you'll be fine.

"... Can u break open hydroxycut max for women 120 capsules and take with apple sauce or do you have to take the capsule?? Please help "


February 22, 2012
response by James

I think they are meant to be dissolved by your stomach, perhaps even time released so I would suggest taking them as capsules. Also, if you spread it over food, such as apple sauce, unless you like the bowl 100% clean you cannot guarantee you are getting all the contents.

"... I just started Hydroxycut Max this morning!
I go to the gym 6/7 days a week most weeks, 5/7 sometimes, for an hour to two hours each time. I used to be 205 pounds, and am now 151, at 5'10, My goal is 140, so I thought I'd give Hydroxycut a try to see if it can help out :)
Did any one have a bad experience with Hydroxycut? Or did you find it absolutely amazing? I'm curious :)"


February 22, 2012
response by Neil

Congrats on your great progress so far, 54lbs loss is fantastic and you obviously know what it takes! The last pounds are always the hardest and the best time to throw in fat burners, so you're on the right track. It works well but be sure to eat well and keep up with your cardio - also drink plenty of water.

No one knows if it will work for YOU or not. Everyone is different, but for the most part if you follow the directions and pay attention to your diet and cardio / exercise you will be just fine. You can start at the lower dosage and work your way up - because the recommended dosage is for the best results.

January 30, 2012
response by Helen

Results depends and vary from one person to the next. There is no set time frame. All depends on how much effort you put into it. If you put 100%, zero cheats into your diet and exercise you will see results each week. Something in the range of 1-2lbs per week. But again, all depends on you. Some people think they can have a small cheat here and there that it won't do anything, but that is false, it will completely ruin the entire week.

response by Sheila

It's impossible to target fat loss from a certain area of your body, it will just lose it naturally as it does. Usually the hips and booty go last so you should be ok. Unfortunately the bust does seem to go first, but again, it all depends on your genetics.

"... I have used HM about a year ago 2 pills a day twice a day. I found that this pill not only worked but also played as a motivator for me to eat right and go to the gym. What was weird is that it not only curbed my appetite but also controlled my sweet tooth which has always been pretty controlling of me! Haha. Anyway, when I first started the pill I was able to focus on a specific diet and stick to it without having to chum up much willpower, for some reason high protein, low fat foods appealed to me and satisfied me. I drank water religiously through out the day and was very active during the week. Looking back on it, I was literally on autopilot when it came to staying on a healthy track. I have been off of the pill for about two months, and reverted back to my old vices (eating sweets, not working out, not drinking as much water etc.) So....today I ordered HM from Walgreens, on sale for 19.99! :) I am hoping that once I am back on the pill I will begin to experience all of the positive, healthy motivators I had before. Losing weight and staying fit definitely requires a mental focus, and whether I am categorizing this pill as an excuse to gather that focus is well worth the twenty bucks, and it definitely gave me the energy I needed through out the day and helped in the toning process. I have said my piece. Good luck to all of you! :D"

Hey.. well no pills is going to just melt the fat away right? Maybe that's what the advertising makes us think but it really does take an effort in your diet, fitness when taking these pills. Otherwise everyone would be skinny and gyms would be out of business right? Listen, 2 days is FAR too soon to actually see results.. it takes time for your body to adjust to the pills etc. Just be patient. If you want to lose weight super fast then you need to eat HEALTHY.. and that means anything pretty much that tastes good you leave out - simple as that.

Some people are just not made to take advanced stimulants, just the way it is. Everybody is different. You can cut the dosage back until your body feel comfortable. Yes, you can still lose weight with a smaller dosage, but PLEASE do no rely on these pills alone to lose weight or you will be surely dissapointed. You must make a commitment to this goal and make an effort with what you eat as well - it's really simple actually. You either want the results or not.

Best of luck and keep us posted!

November 11, 2011
response by Kelton

Hello, you wrote that you cannot exercise properly since your back injury but exercise anyways on a regular basis? And you are eating healthy yet not losing weight? That means you are not eating clean enough, because diets ALWAYS work, people are just not willing to do the proper diet. Remember, the more bland the healthier unfortunately. If you are getting lightheaded with the pill start with the lowest dose and go from there.

Cardio is the best exercises, even if it's brisk walks around your block. Then eating clean is essential. If you add the fat burner into the mix that will improve those results. It's hard to guess how much weight you will lose as we know nothing about you expect your age. It can vary from 1 to 3lbs per week if you are doing things right.

Best of luck!

Perhaps this is just your body getting used to the foreign ingredients. You should be ok next time as your body adjusts, if you feel concerned about it then by all means stop the use. You have to remember, this pills are very powerful, in essence they trigger your body to burn fat without doing the work yourself so there are always side-effects for this process to occur.

First of all, congrats on taking the first steps to the new you! It will be worth all the effort!

You will need to eat more than just vegetables to get to your goal, especially proteins. Just stick to 4-5 small meals / snacks throughout the day every 2-4 hours to keep your metabolism in full gear. Drink as often as you can.

In addition to proper eating, you should add some cardio or fitness to speed up the results. A walk everyday is excellent, as it gets easier either make it longer or faster. You can also do many quick exercises in the comfort of your home such as leg kicks, ab exercises, jumping jacks, etc.

Stick with it - keep us posted and good luck!

The directions on the label are just a guide, you have to always listen to your own body. If you feel very jittery and anxious then stick to the dose or even lower it until your body adapts.

Hi Tarz, it's excellent that you have such a dedicated weight training plan already in motion. That is the effort it takes to maximize the results. 1200 calories is also good, I never understand how some women can go below 1000, it's just not healthy and near starvation. If you train late, you should probably stay away. Remember, it doesn't have to be taken BEFORE workouts, as long as you take it each day it will work the same.

Hi Ausgirl, take a browse down the list of the more than 1000 reviews and I am sure you will find some good advice or experiences to learn from. From my experience, I am ok if I take it around 3-4 at the latest, anything after that I am up all night. You will have to try it for yourself to see how your body handles the stimulant ingredients. Also, not eating from 11:30 to after 6:00 is far too long to go without a meal or a snack. You need to eat every 3-4 hours at least to keep your metabolism going, healthy small meals. If you stop eating, your body will start to use muscle as a energy source and store the fat. Not good.

The first week I was also a little dizzy but it went away after the first week or about 10 days. I also read over hundreds of comments here and that really helped me understand how it works and the support was amazing. The majority of people don't experience any side-effects, and the dizziness or jitters is just a side-effects of our bodies adjusting as this is a powerful product.

"... Hi ladies, thanks for all your support and advice on this product. I am 4'11 and was 115 when I started so far I'm on day 4 and I am down to 108, it may or may not be water weight. I'm on a strict 15gms or less diet for each meal. I workout twice a day which is a normal routine of brief cardio to get my body burning before I start my circuit training. I do more weight lifting then anything, max weight for a bench press being 140lbs right now. Being that I do lift weights I carry alot of muscle mass and i'm looking to get lean so people can actually see the muscles I have underneath the extra fat. When I first took this pill I experienced a boost of energy right away. I was working out like the "Incredible Hulk" because it added that extra lil' something that I was missing. When taking this pill I've notice if I'm not workingout I feel like I have too much energy or sick even because there is no where for the energy to go but the feeling goes away when I drink more water and or use that energy up by workingout *smile* it kinda forces you to workout which is awesome. I did notice the first few days my chest was a lil' heavy but I think that may be due to the fact that I have asthma but after today I have not experienced the heavy chest. People bodies adjust in different ways so don't be afraid to try this product, it's worked great for me and its only been 4 days. I hope to get down to around 155 lbs with lean muscle mass and depending on how I look I will decide if I need to lose more *smile* some people look weird if they lose to much depending on their body type and frame."

It does not look like the man in the blue boxes is responding to these posts anymore, but will someone please give me advice on what to do or tell me it will go away?"


September 13, 2011
response by Dave

Usually this can be remedied by taking in more liquids as the body gets dehydrated with stimulant based fat burners. Also, be sure to eat as well - as some people cut back their meals while on hydroxycut which almost always leads to nausea. If none of the above work for you then I would suggest cutting the dosage in half as you body may only require a lower dosage to work effectively.

"... I have used hydroxycut in the past and I did like it. Here is the deal...I am 5'4" and 138lbs. The first time I tried hydroxycut(2007), I weighed 172lbs. I adopted a healthy, vegetarian diet and a workout routine and got down to 138. Hydroxycut helped with the cravings and gave me energy. I am willing to commit to an exercise routine (I have been for 3 weeks already)and still eat a vegetarian diet.

My question is, will hydroxycut be able to help me with this additional weight loss (I have been hovering around 140lbs for the last few years)? Or have I already plateaued? Also, I don't think I can handle the full does. I feel nauseated and dizzy if I take the full does, but fine if I take half. But, will half even work or should I suffer through and take the full dose? "


September 13, 2011
response by Dave

First of all, congrats on your results and especially on your dedication with your diet and fitness - this is the factor that most women slack on or don't have the will power to do. It's the key factor to making hydroxycut work the best.

Yes, adding hydroxycut back to the mix will make a big difference. You can stick with your half dosage if that is where your body feels comfortable with. Most likely, you will be able to increase the dosage to full a few weeks or month of use as you may adapt.

If you feel like your weight loss has plateaued, you will have to tweak your diet by cutting back calories or increasing your protein or enhance your cardio by doing more intense or longer sessions.

I am wondering if this product is right for me? I am an 18 year old girl. I am 5'0 and I currently weigh around 110 pounds. For my dance class, they need me to be 90 pounds. Will this product help me lose weight? Is this product safe for me as I am technically already in a healthy BMI range?"


August 22, 2011
response by Parker

Hi Claire, yes this product WILL help but it works much better when combined with a proper diet and some fitness or cardio. Seems like you are in dance then you probably get plenty of exercise. In terms of meals, it's very important to eat 4-6 small meals a day, never starve yourself as that will just lead to health issues and actually trick your body into thinking it is going into starvation mode and it holds onto fat as a precaution. So be sure to eat, small healthy snacks throughout the day. Now, with regards to dropping from 110 to 90lbs solely because your dance demands it seems a little extreme. So be sure you really want to do this as your health comes first, not image of someone else's liking.

August 12, 2011
response by Donald

Skipping a meal is not very good for fat loss. The key with fat loss is eating more frequently yet smaller meals. Skipping a meal slows down your metabolism and waiting from breakfast to dinner to eating actually spikes your insulin and slows metabolism where eating just those two meals will actually stop you from losing weight. If you are in a rush be sure to at least have healthy snacks every 2 hours or so to keep the thermogenesis at work!

Congrats on taking the first steps towards your weight loss journey! Adding this weight loss supplement will surely help but you need to make sure that you keep an eye on your diet as well as daily fitness levels. It takes commitment to reach your goals but I am sure you can do it. On its own, MAX will work.. but not as great.. the weight won't just melt away. However cutting back your calories and carbohydrates, especially at night time will boost results and then light exercise, even a 20 minute walk at night outside will help speed up that metabolism. Just stay focused and the results will start to happen.. pound by pound you'll reach your ultimate goal!

Suggestions?"


August 8, 2011
response by Sawyer

You seem to have things in order, which is rare! Key is to stick with your diet and keep up the training.. surely you will start to shed the pounds. To put it simply, it's basically calories in must be less than calories out each day. It's a bit more complicated than that of course but that is the general rule. If you have issues with flax, bran or the veggies there are actually supplement pill formats for all those. Makes it much easier to just take a capsule with some water.

Best of luck!

Hi Jjena, of course if you are concerned then by all means see your doctor. I do have a suspicion that you may be dehydrated. When taking pills of this nature it is essential to drink more than normal water to keep up with your system trying to work overtime to burn the fat stores.

Hi Tina, that is unfortunate to hear about your acne breakouts. This can be a cause of it. Question is, you mentioned that you are taking morning classes.. are you taking a full shower afterwards? If not then the reason for your acne is the dirt, sweat and clogged pores following your workout. If this doesn't help then you can always consider cutting the dosages down.

Hi Lucy, you have to remember that supplements are there to "supplement", not work full duty. Yes, you will experience some weight loss results, but optimal results happen when you do have some physical activity daily (even a 15 minute walk to start with) and you watch your diet. No matter how many pills you take, if you are sloppy with your diet then you'll have a sloppy physique. Just the way things work. Just stay committed and push through and once the pounds start to come off that will be the motivation you need to reach your final weight goals.

I weighed in at 198lbs. at 5'2 after my third baby who was born in January, the baby weight started to shed and stopped at 174lbs. I couldn't budge. I finally tried Hydroxy and the energy I have I can no longer live without. I get on the treadmill almost everyday, and from 174, I am now 154lbs. This product is real wonderful if you are truly, and I MEAN truly ready to throw in bad eating habits, and exercise. You don't have to do the world, I do between 12 and 20 minutes a day of REAL running and a little walking. And seriously, I feel alot better. Oh, the pills weren't great with me, so I only take two in the morning, right before exercise, and that's it.

May 25, 2011
response by Brett

Hi Star.. good questions.. I am sure many have similar ones. I would spread the pills first thing in the morning and then early/mid afternoon. I would not take them too late in the day.. general rule of thumb is stop about 4 hours before bed time. The coffee in the morning MIGHT be too much of a energy stimulus boost.. you can try it and see if you get jittery or to wired. It's hard for all of us to squeeze in a workout or cardio after a long days work.. but dedication is what it takes to reach your weight loss goals. Taking the pills on their own will have minimal effect. You can either train first thing in the morning and since you have a bike at home then that is perfect.. or later at night. It's upto you how badly you wanted.. but remember once the results start to happen that is great motivation on its own!

i suggest you listen to the advice. with the knowledge i have and heard, after aboit 8-12 weeks of using HM. you should take a week off atleast. just to cleanse it out from your body. after that, you can start again if you really want to continue using it. but keep in mind that, you should never use this product for over 12 weeks because using it abusively can have serious consequences on your body so does every other drug. so be careful.

I love this product. it doesn't make me jittery but it keeps me alert. I have always had issues with being hungry all day and now i am never hungry when i take it. I don't feel sick and my heart doesn't freak out. I'm in a great mood all the time. I'm excited to get my habits to change and get healthy again!"

"... Well I started yesterday and already lost two pounds which is great because I ate pizza, oreos and chips for dinner. Ha! But i started taking this because my sister's good friend told me about her experience when she took it. She is my height, 5'6" and started off at my weight. She started sometime in Jan '11 and now weighs 136. The thing that sold me on HM was that her only excersise she did was walk 1/2 mile to work and 1/2 home. And she didn't diet. She ate carne asada burritos like every other day, super cheesey lasagna, and pizza. I'm giving it a shot and hoping i will see results like she did because she looks great now. "

Rebecca    Age: 18

"... I've been using this product for a few weeks and i've noticed i've gotten my torso figure back but gained one pound. . . Does this product cause muscle mass while burning the fat?"


April 19, 2011
response by Liam

Hi Rebecca. No, this product will not help you gain muscle mass.. but if you are staying active or training then you might be adding some lean muscle tissue which is actually very beneficial as the more muscle you carry the more fat your body will burn.

No please don't panic as most people, females, will be afraid to add some lean muscle because they think they will someone get huge and bulky. This is a MYTH. Also, remember that muscle weight more than fat, so even though the scale may be telling you that you have gained a pound you actually may be LEANER than when you started.

Best of luck and keep us posted on the great progress!

I work out and try to eat healthy but I dont have a lot of energy. Is this product good or should I take another type of hydroxycut?"


April 19, 2011
response by Liam

This is an excellent product to help you shed more fat as well as boost your daily energy levels without any crash. You seem to have the formula correct as you already have a sound training and nutrition plan.. so adding this supplement to the mix will only improve those results you are having right now. Most people try to use the pills on their own and expect dramatic changes, but the key is to have all three aspects working together for the optimal, long term results to show (fitness/diet/supplements)

Best of luck!

response by The Enforcer

Your ideal weight is hard to judge as their are charts out there but they never take into account the individuals lean muscle mass. You have to go by the mirror and how you feel and how you WANT to look. Just stay focuses on your goals, watch your diet and include cardio or fitness 3-4 times a week and you'll continue to lose the weight. 1-2 pounds of weight loss per week is excellent and actually healthy method.

Keep on track and keep us posted please!

I have taken other weight loss supplememts and fat burners in the past that made me feel sick, gave me horrible headaches and extreme heart palpitations. But, this works well for me! It is awesome at controlling my appetite too. In fact I have to stop and make myself eat a little something just because we all know that we have to have nutrients. But I do not overeat. I have been using for about a week and my stomach is getting flatter and my waist is shrinking. "

September 1, 2011
response by Jackson

Hi Arianna, you are on the right track! Seeing results in just one short week is extremely rare. Adding a supplement to your system takes some time to build up and start to see the results. The more effort you put into your fitness and nutrition, the better hydroxycut max will work as well. The increase in energy and sweating during the workout is a good indication that the product is starting to take effect. Remember, fat is very stubborn and sometimes takes a while to shed, consistency is the key - never give up!

"... Today was my first day taking hm, I took it in the morning and it gave me some serious energy however it made me really hot I was sweating out of no where.. I decided to take hm for a few days before I started excersing because I wasnt sure how it would effect me. Around lunch time I took another pill but which was about a half hour ago and I have a bit of a headache.. Is it normal that im sweating so much and have a bit of a head ache? Or is it that I havent been drinking alot of water?. The second pill has not made me sweat as much. Does that mean my body is getting used to hm?


February 17, 2011
response by James

These are serious, high strength fat burners. The headache is almost surely from dehydration, you have to drink a lot more liquids (keep it healthy like water) when using these even if you are not thirsty, it is just the way it is. With the sweats, well it is a reaction of the energy and stimulant ingredients.. these aid in the fat loss. You can always lower the dosage and go from there. Remember, keep active and watch the diet and you should see some great results - best of luck and keep us posted.

February 6, 2011
response by Pete

With regards to your pee being fluorescent yellow, this is actually quite common when you introduce a new food, vitamin or supplement to your nutritional plan. Basically, it's just a signal that your body is not using up all of the ingredients (vitamins, minerals, etc), and getting rid of what it does not need.

How are the results so far with your current dosage?

September 4, 2011
response by Phil

First of all, that is an amazing success story with losing 40lbs in just 5 months with hydroxycut max, congratulations!

You are the perfect example of how to use this product the right way as you watched your diet and did daily exercise, p90x.

The reason you are having a harder time to keep losing weight is that the last pounds are always hardest to shed. Your body tends to hold on to the last bit and makes you really work for it. You probably need to continue with your high intensity training as your body might have actually been used to the p90x pace and now that you have stopped the weight loss did as well.

You can always try to switch formulas, as the hydroxycut hardcore pro series is also a good option as well as the Nutrex Lipo 6 Black Hers.

Again, thanks for sharing your amazing success story with us!

My pills came with a diet insert. I use it as a guide and add or delete some of the things I dont eat. for instance flaxseed oil is not necessary as the BM's are regular. Also, I dont eat the recommended egg whites.

"... It seems to me that most people are just buying these pills off the internet and assuming they work wonders.. I purchased mine after already being on the Paleo Diet and working out 5 times a week. I'm 5'2 and at 150lbs currently. If you have a local health/supplement store I suggest you speak to them in person about what you can and can not take or do while on a formular like Hydroxycut. Because of the caffine you will find high caffine drinkers being more jittery and having this impact their system more and should cool down on their caffeine intake and not take any other supplement that clashes with Hydroxycut.

This product is a great one as long as you know about it. I do NOT take the 3 recommened I take less because I'm a smaller girl. I've read on here some very small people (example, 5 feet and 106lbs) is taking the full dosage and having issues.. it's because you are taking TOO MUCH for your physical situation. This is NOT a miracle pill. this is a pill to SUPPLEMENT you DIET and EXERCISE.

Eating 5 times a day with this pill. (3 meals and 2 snacks) works best. Take your dosage in the morning at between 6am-8am and eat 30-60-mins after. take yoour next one 5 hours later (before 3pm or you will have issues sleeping) You need to take it 1hr minimum after eating (after you digest) and 30-60 mins before the next one. It's all about timeing and proper care. Because you can have issues with your kidneys on this, so if you have unhealthy kidneys this is not for you.

So. if you are NOT exercising this pill WILL NOT HELP YOU. if you are not eating correctly and cutting down on your caffine intake this pill WILL NOT HELP YOU."

September 4, 2010
response by Niki

For starters, if you are having trouble sleeping its because you are not taking them at the proper times. You must take them 5 or so hours apart (read bottle) and you should not be taking the pills after 3pm at the latest. You must take one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You cannot take both at the same time; this pill isn't meant for that.

You honestly can't lose the weight with just the pill. That's unrealistic. Without exercise this pill will continue to keep you up at night and will eventually make you ill. The contents of the pill are ;Supplementing' a low caffine, proper diet and exercise (exercise that helps burn off that excess energy that the pill gives you) This pill alone will not make you lose weight; it will simply be a waste of money and eventually cause ill effects because you are not taking it for what it was created for; to supplement and aid your physical exercise and diet.

September 4, 2010
response by Niki

I would suggest that you work out hun. There is no pill on this earth that will help you lose weight just by taking it. Every 'diet' pill is a Supplement, a supplement aids you in your exercise and diet. Simply being on your feet all day will not help you lose weight.

If you react to caffine badly and do not change your diet and work in exercise this pill will have adverse effects on your in the long run. If you want to try it and do the bare mimimum you MUST.
1. Take a lower dosage (properly) on the bottle.
2. do not ingest or ingest very little caffine from other sources (eg, coffee, pop, etc read lables)
3. you MUST do a mimimum of 30mins of cardio 3 times a week. (the caffine in these pills is meant to help you burn off the fat in exercise, without it it will simply stay in your system and cause you to be jittery, sleepless, anxious, nauseous) This supplement, combined with diet and exercise will give you results. Alone, it will do nothing good.

"... I'm on my second bottle of HM and I have to say that my workouts are far more productive with it. I take 3 first thing in the morning with a protein shake then onto the gym and I feel great. It also curves my appetite up until at least 2hrs after my workouts which is good because I usually can't get to food until then. I eat less. The only thing I noticed that I have to be careful with is taking the afternoon dosage. If I take it after 2pm, I cannot sleep at night. I usually don't go to bed until 10pm but I'm still wide awake. So I'd say take it as early as possible if you're sensitive to stimulants. I have had no negative side effects what-so-ever and I have blood sugar problems. The biggest change I noticed is in my waist/tummy area. My waist has lost inches and my tummy is flatter now. I eat a very clean diet and drinks tons of water and workout about 4-5 days a week. I do a combination of weight/resistance/cardio training. This stuff works great, you just have to put some initiative into it. "

I personally have not tried the drink, but the pills work well for me. I am on my second bottle. I don't necessarily take it for actual weight loss.

response by Helen

Good results, thanks for sharing!

With regards to issues with your left eye etc., it is not from supplementing with Hydroxycut. I do highly suggest you go see your doctor as they can properly diagnose and treat the issue(s).

The previous version of Hydroxycut did get recalled but it was due to the persons abuse of the supplement - they didn't follow direcions. The other case was due to a previous issues that conflicted with the product. So after millions of happy customers, a couple cases removed the formula - unfortunate in my opinion.

I started taking this 2 weeks ago and my first day I felt extremly sick to find out if you don't drink at least 4 bottles of water a day this pill will make you sick like I was, no vomiting just upset stomach. Also this pill when you first take it will make you poop a lot more than what is normal. I have been on this pill for 2 weeks and lost 3 lbs and being an already petite girl this shows a lot. This pill works but I reccomend on working out 4 days a week and at least 30 min of cardio. I did not experience any jitters or upset stomach other than my first day.

My advice...cut down on the coffee if you are feeling far too jittery, or wait until your body is used to the caffeine in the pill before you start with the 5 cups a day thing. I felt the nausea that everyone is talking about, but I recommend ONLY taking them before a meal...lunch and dinner, so 2 or 3 before those two times or else if you aren't eating this is why you feel sick. Otherwise drink TONS of water. I know its hard to do in the winter but do your best.I haven't weighed myself yet, even though I seem to just stay and the same weight no matter what I eat...good bolism I guess. but hopefully by summer I will have lost 20-30 pounds.

Working out is AMAZING, I recommend doing it as much as you can. Even if you just go for a 30 min walk everyday you will feel alot better and jump start the weight loss even better. There isn't really a product out there that can help you lose weight unless you workout...they kind of go hand in hand. Drink lots of water and do some random fun activities like skating or swimming. I highly recommend working out especially if you have that lovely office job that 99% of the world has, and you are sitting all day. Just walking for a bit everyday can really help.

Honestly you if you want to really see the results you need to try and work out! If you dont have time for the gym then consider taking stairs instead of the elevator.... dont drive to work... walk to the bus and take the bus or better yet try ridding a bike to work! Go for walks after dinner to help aid in digestion of food and instead of cutting lots of unhealthy choices from your diet all at once (its overwhelming) try easing into it! Eat lots of small meals instead of big heavy meals... you don't need to go to a gym to lose weight... you just need to make small adjustments to your life style! (if you work in an office go for a walk on your lunch break)!!! Good luck!!!

I bet Pediasure will help rebalance your electrolytes. I'd say go for it. I know it's something doctors recommend when BM's are more than usual, or you have the runs. It's difficult drinking lots of water all day long. Something with taste would help. Pediasure will give you some flavor. For me, I drink water but it's vitamin enhanced with "fake' sugar. That helps me a great deal.
By the way, I'm trying my first HM dose tomorrow. I need to lose (but it might be water weight) between 8 and 10 pounds before my wedding the end of Sept. I hope this stuff helps.

Due to medical issues, I went from 155 (nice size 9 for me) to 192. I have attended a weight loss clinic for one year using preion weight loss meds. What a waste of time and energy! Believe me, FDA aproved or not, this can be no worse than the "legitimate" regimens practiced by health care providers. What I have noticed so far (yes, I noticed immediately)is the absolute restraint I am able to practice with portion control and in-between meal eating. My appetite is so remarkably different than it has been in the past two years. We'll see if this holds; I'll report back. That is why a three for now"

"... Hey everyone! I've read most of these reviews and comments and they seem really promising. From what I hear there is a new version which I will be getting as soon as it's out. I am going to start up a journal here in the blog section so I can be more detailed and actually have a chance to chat with some of you in detail. I hope others start up journals as well so we can all be in it together and share advice and results!

I hope this works.. I've tried so many products with little to no success."

"... I'm sure this is a big factor in the side effects, not just caffeine. I'm one one/day, twice per day, and fine so far. But that's about the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee, and I'm pretty sure I was well above that before. So far great energy, ran much longer today than normal, no side effects otherwise, but I haven't had other caffeine at all. Probably won't even go to 2x...I just need to lose 10 lbs, and my big thing was needing an energy kick. Good luck all!"

"... Ashley -- Please pay more attention to what you read!!!! This new formula is NOT FDA approved. The makers say they changed the formula even though they found no casual relations between their product and liver damagee. But that they have created a new formula to replace the herbs used in the prior. Now I do not believe this to be completely true, due to the speed in which the "NEW" products hit the shelves. Now with that being said I loved the old formula, and believe that those people had health issues prior to taking the pills, ex. one man found out he had Hep. B (which by the way causes liver damage) only days before sueing Hydroxycut. So I think it is a lot of BS, I did go buy a new bottle yesterday and can only hope it works the same as the old formula."

"... I am on day four of the new formula. I am 20 years old, 5'4'' and 160lbs and a mother of one. I weighed this morning at 155lbs. Probably some water weight, although I feel great. No side effects unless I eat something fatty, then I get a little nauseated. I workout 60 minutes every other day, and walk for 30 min. on in between days. I eat what I want just no eating out and no soda or tea. This product has given me an enormous amount of stamina during my workouts. It also curbs my appitite like you wouldn't believe!!! I would recommend this product to anyone who is in doubt. Just fallow the directions!"
