My review of Hydroxycut:

I am all for that little su’em, su’em that gives you a pep before a workout (coffee, tea or maybe some Energy and Endurance from Beachbody) but I do steer clear of “Weightloss” Pills for 3 reasons. 1) Your body does become accustom to them and you need more and more to get the same effect. This leads to problem #2 and #3. 2) These have been proven to cause liver damage and fails to help it do it’s main job.. It is tough for your liver to break down these supplements. The main purpose of your liver is to clean your blood and flush fat. It CANNOT flush the fat if it is too busy breaking down foreign products in your diet (stay away from processed food for the same reason) and 3) It wears out your heart. Once taken, it actually speeds up your heart-rate (more than caffeine alone does) even at rest. Your heart cannot take the long term stimulation and it causes permanent damage. There are lots of reports on long term users who have had heart attacks because their poor little hearts couldn’t take it anymore. 😉 You don’t need a crutch…just someone who believes in you!

Plus: Hydroxycut has not had a great safety record……

  1. What do you think of Spark by Advocare. It is supposedly vitamins etc and good stuff for ya. It sure is a help for the afternoon slump to keep me moving instead of taking a nap. It’s not for weight loss. But I’ve lost weight because I’ve been more active and I skip that afternoon munchy and nap.

    • Hi JR,

      I know Spark very well. You are right, it does have B vitamins and alittle caffeine in it to help you through the slump. 🙂

      It just goes back to what I mentioned before, it becomes sort of a crutch (much like coffee or a 5 Hour Energy) for people to get through their day. What did we do before these products??

      With proper nutrition, I truly believe your body won’t get that slump and you won’t need “supplemental” energy. Plus, isn’t that stuff a “before you exercise” booster? 😉

      Thanks for the comment! MM

  2. Is the heart rate increase from hydroxycut permanant?
