When taking Hydroxicut you should 1. take a good daily vitamin and 2. take pure red root ginseng just before the dosage and you will not feel sick. Also, to accelerate weight lost, you should drink 1/2 a cup of green tea 10 minutes before each meal.
You will definitely lose weight and feel better.
It works for meFebruary 19, 2011
Reviewer: Susan from Australia
I've been taking Hydroxycut Hardcore for ages. I take the pills 30-45 minutes before my cardio workouts to give me an extra energy boost.
According to my heart-rate monitor, Hydroxycut helps me to burn an extra 50 calories per workout. I've even (accidentally) done a blind test; I thought I had taken the pills, felt a bit sluggish during my workout, and found the numbers on my HRM weren't as high as usual. Then I saw the pills still sitting on the table!

to be honest i droped about 6 kgs (approx 12pounds) after 3 weeks with only light work outs
only bad thing is that its like having 6 cups of coffee so at times i do feel like throwing up when i get a caffine overdose
look good feel woozyJuly 13, 2010
Reviewer: Jody from Colorado Springs, Co
I have been using the Hydroxycut Hardcore on the recomendation of a friend who lost 30 lbs in the first month. So far I have been on it for 5 days and lost 5 lbs, I feel the best on the days that I drink LOTS of water but Im pretty woozy. Im trying to decide if Im going to just stay at 2 pills twice a day because i feel that 3 would be too much for me. I have been taking a really good womans daily vitamin that is supposed to also have natural fat burners. My husband is taking it also and he says he feel great so I think it really depends on how your body reacts to caffene and how much water you drink. I have not been eating the best, but Im taking 30 min walks every day. I dont feel horrible, but I do have an overall feeling of being sick. Im going to try to stick to it and eat better to see if that helps. Ill let you all know my results at the end of the bottle. Hope you all have a great experience on H.H.

Hydroxycut Hardcore Does Not WorkMarch 02, 2010
Reviewer: Jim R. from Pasadena, MD
I was a Huge Fan of Hydroxcut hardcore about a year and a half ago. They then took it off the shelf for some sort of health recall. I was upset because I lost so much body fat, Had tons of energy, and it suppressed my appetite like you wouldnâ€™t believeâ€¦.
Fast forward to about 6 weeks ago, HH is back on the Shelf with a â€śNew Improved formulaâ€ťâ€¦That DOES NOT WORK!
I have been taking the new HH for almost 6 weeks now to my disappointment. In the past 6 weeks I have lost only 5 pounds of fat. I have tried to stay on my Diet as I did before but my appetite was stronger on the pills then off the pills. While on the pills I was in constant snack mode. The Pills gave me an instant rush of energy in the morning for about an hour then an instant crash for about 3 hours before I took my â€śLunch timeâ€ť dose (which produced the same results). When It came time for my after work â€śworkoutâ€ť I was bushed. I found myself too tired to get a quality workout in. I also had pretty bad side effects of Headaches, Stomach aches, Bad (Stinky) Gas, and nasal congestion (which is probably the reason for the headaches). I am very disappointed with the â€śNew HHâ€ť and I am currently looking for new Diet pillsâ€¦Why do they always take away the ones that work????
Hydroxycut HardcoreDecember 03, 2009
Reviewer: Jacob Yeager from Ocean Springs, MS, USA
Hydroxycut Hardcore works, no doubt.
I've been eating what I want, when I want. It doesn't seem to be an appetite suppressant at all I think I've actually been hungrier. I went through Thanksgiving, ate tons of turkey and have still lost weight. After three weeks this time around I've cut down in weight about 10 pounds this time.
But HH is not without its side effects.
I've been told to take this on an empty stomach before working out. I DONT recommend that.
Everytime I've taken it on an empty stomach before a work out I've become nausiated.
Sometimes It also seems to zone me out, which is a good thing if your working out, but when your not its not a good thing.
Seeing as the side effects arent bad at all and seem to be controlled by eating before working out. I give it a 4.5 out of 5
I'd recommend it to anyone who would like a jump start to some weight loss.
Hope this review helped good luck to anyone trying to lose weight and never give up !

Reviewer: C.Sanchez from San Juan, PR
Good day all, wanted to inform all that it does work.
But... with every routine comes sacrifice. I do tons of exercise, i stopped eating after 10pm, i sleep 6 to 5 hours, due to work/school. Good cardio and food habits.(foods: tuna, cereal without sugar, regular milk, low salt crackers etc.) The key was watch what you eat. I started a bottle in may09 i was 204pnds. now im at 185.
HMM.. YES ripped but not to the desired level, but i followed my routine every week and most importantly i felt better. Note on this: the key is not abusing the pills, is how you eat and do your exercise. I was taking other supplements as well, protein shake ( low cal, iso100 to name the product ) my multi vitamins and of course water**. Hydration was the key to loosing all the weight imo. I hope this helps other on the search for reviews about this product and surely enlighten peoples perception about weight loss... its not just take a pill and lose the weight, is about commitment. Good day =)

After 1 week.August 18, 2009
Reviewer: J from NC
After the first week, I've dropped 3lbs (I work out 4 days a week, mostly weight training, 30 mins cardio) and I'm definetely getting the side effects - needed a nap in the evening and definetely got the nausea from taking it without eating first. Not so sure the weight loss had anything to do with the HH, it's pretty much a pound more than what I've been doing for the last 6 weeks.

Overall good poductJuly 22, 2009
Reviewer: Matt F from Colchester, Essex, UK
I used this product for 4 months straight combined with a running program where i ran average 20-30 mins a day 6 days a week and together lost around 35 pounds, therfor i beleive this is a good product overall but must be used with a fitness program and resonable diet to acheive what is advertised on the bottle. Overall the product works resonably good the amount you must take compared to the price per bottle is a bit much but if thats not issue for you its a good product. The side effects arnt that bad exept somtimes after a long day and exercise i was left really drained and exhusted and feeling overall weak. This soon passes when you eat food but somthing to think about. also this product leaves you very dehydrated ecspecially when running, so take on alot of fluid when using this.

Reviewer: Scotty from NZ
HH has good and bad effects. For me the good effects are that im getting great tonage from taking these tablets (with exercise)and losing alot of stomach fat. I weigh around 80kg so not looking to lose weight, just fat. And these tablets seem to assist in doing that. The bad effects are that taking them without food makes me feel sick, im tired alot and go to the bathroom 3x as much as i normally would.. I recommend this product for a limited time and then maybe see what its like without taking them.
This stuff works greatApril 30, 2009
Reviewer: Kurt from Tallahassee, Fl
I started taking HH about 12 weeks ago and I have come a long way during the past 2 months. When I started it I weighed 240lbs at 6'1" and now I way about 198lbs. I wanted to loose weight for years but i couldn't get the momentum to keep going to the gym so I couldn't loose weight. I have never had any side effects but I drink about 10 16oz bottles of water per day and am on a strict diet. I think the best part about HH is that it takes about 2 weeks to start seeing real results and seeing your body transform so quickly really motivates you to keep up. You can really transform your whole physic, but you must drink a ton of water and you also need to get plenty of excersize. My week consists of eating 8 small meals per day and excersizing 4 days per week 1 hour each day at the gym and for cardio I mountain bike 6 days per week for 2 hours per day, about 10 miles. It takes a ton of commitment but trust me I work full time and am married with a kid. My wife has class 4 days per week so I have my daughter those days and still make the time. I can promise you no matter what body type you are if you use this pill and try to loose weight you will in a shockingly amount of time. As fast as you want to work for it. Good luck!!

Reviewer: Henry "Panda" Flores from California, LA, USA
Well I started hydroxycutH. 3months ago. I weighed 335lbs! And now im at 255lbs yes this amazing pill works!! No doubt you'll get your results it takes time but with strict diet and hardcore work outs you'll see your results in the first month... yeah you get headaches and stomach aches but that's because your suppose to eat something before drinking the pill and I know because I've forgotten to eat and just drank the pill. I recomend this product to those who are wiling to dedicate themselves to lose wieght. I feel the boost rushing through my body that's when I start the hardcore workouts. I have a bulky body if you could skip the gym and try these 3 diffrent excersises and use each one for diffrent days. 1st run three miles if you can't do it at first run what you can but make sure your sweating and try this till 3 miles aint nothing 2 you, you can do it! 2nd jump rope! Do 1,000 jumps but in sets of 100 and 10 sec. Pauses. Jump roping really helps you out in yourr cardio and builds stiff leg caps... and last but not least 3. Do up downs, push ups, push up inclines, 80 degree angle sit ups, mountain climers, and grasshoppers which your on push up position and you just jump side to side 10 times but if you can do more more power to you.... this is maii daily excersise. But please folks stay hydrated drink water the night before and in the morning. Dnt waste your money on personal trainers this is all about you! Its up to you to eat right to excersise daily for atleat 1 hour! Thid product means busines! Arnt you tired of the saggy body parts? Saggy arms? Double chins? Then do something about it!! now im on my way to get musle toned its time to lift weights!.... its all up to you!!

Reviewer: D Smith from Reno
I picked it up at a vitamin store as it was recommended to me. I was looking for something to give me an energy boost to get me more motivated. I take one pill around 2pm every other day (when I do take it) and it works great. I have not tracked my weight loss with it, but it does rev me up for my work outs. I am a healthy person who eats right, I just like a little umph once in a while. I notice that they do give me headaches though, so I take 2 asprin about an hour after I take HH.

Well I was reading people comments so far and it seems it does work. Now I do get those stomach upset sometimes too I agree with that also but headaches not really. Also about being dizzy its kind of true especially when im running. Now right in the back of the bottle it says drink a type amount of water when y0u take the pill so yea you need to drink lots of water. Well so far this is my third day taking this pills I been working out about 2 or 3 weeks ago and it does give me some energy and also my stomach looks a little bit different too. Well hopefully it works because my goal is to weight 180 i weight 225 pounds Im going to see what results it gives me.

I started taking HH a week ago and from day 3 I'd already started feeling changes on my body specially on the stomach area.

I hope it can keep on going like that to be worthy the fortune in costs here in Brazil!!

True Believer..April 01, 2009
Reviewer: Amanda from Canda
Basically. I work at a supplements store, so I get to try and test out all these products, I have an idea of what works and what doesn't. Here's the thing.. if you are caffeine sensitive.. DO NOT TAKE THIS there is 300 mg per capsule and you are consuming up to three in one dosage. Regular caffeine pills only have 200mg. Other than that, this product is amazing. I lost 30lbs within two months.. i did HIIT cardio twice a day and my diet was EXTREME. No carbs, and NO dairy. Dairy is actually really bad for you. Besides the point, I wont get into that. If you want something that works.. Hydroxycut Hardcore does. I also took this product with 8mg tabs of ephed. one ephed. per HC Hardcore pill.

It works.March 30, 2009
Reviewer: Ruben from Denmark Scandinavia
7 years ago i lost 26kg in less than 3 months using Hydroxycuts. But back then ephadrine was still legal. Now i have gained the then lost weight (2 kids and a desk job) and a week ago i bought the new HC Hardcore. And it works. It feel pretty good too. I can feel that my hart rate has increased and i can feel more energy. The weight loss at this point is starting to slowly kick in. I have lost some appetite especially in the evening, and you dont want to eat sweet stuff like candy or cakes (prob caused of the chrome in the pills).
I think its a great product that can help you start to loose weight. But should be combined with a diet and alot of workout. You get more energy taking HC and that is the real advantage i think, as you are more motivated to workout or just take a walk with the dog :o)
so sickMarch 29, 2009
Reviewer: Amber from USA
I've been taking HH for three days now and I feel soo sick!! I've been working out at least 5-6 days a week for the past 2 months and eating a great diet. And drinking lots of water and ONLY water. I decided to take HH for an extra boost. Yes I feel more energy in the gym but after that all I experience is headaches, my throat is kinda swollen and sore, I've had to take naps for the past three days, at night I barely get any sleep (which is VERY unusual for me) and I've always got the chills. I've been sleeping in sweatpants and a long sleeve shirt and the temperature where I am is roughly 70 degrees. I was at a store today and started feeling So light headed and dizzy. I'm not sure what I am going to do. I might continue to take the pills, just two a day, for a little bit just to see if they help me lose any more weight. If my conditions don't get better, I'll be fine with my regular workout routine and diet.
My experience with Hydroxycut HardcoreMarch 29, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous from Austin, TX
Let me preface this review letting you know I've been working out religiously 3-4 times a week doing spinning classes for 5 months. I'm 42, 6'3" and I started out at 235, got down to 213 in 5 months of constant cardio.
I vowed NOT to take any type of metabolism adhancer / fat burner, but I caved bcz I want to have the best body of my life. Now I want to lose the final weight.
I've been taking HH for 1 week now, and I'm down 2 lbs to 211 lbs. My goal is my marriage weight (195). My body looks MUCH leaner, and my wife really enjoys the results in more way than one....
Others have mentioned headaches, jitters, nausa, insomnia, etc. I think it's largely due to people not following the recommended dosage. I would like to stress, DO NOT EXCEED the recommended dosage and I would back it off the same way you start. If not, I'm confident you will crash....I'm up to 2x2, tomorrow will be 3x2, energy is increase, better mood and decreased appetite.
I'm confident this will work for everyone, but you MUST drink lots of water, decrease your caloric intake and get off of your lazy butts and excercise.
This IS NOT a miracle pill, you have to work out! I'll give an update in a couple of weeks.

Reviewer: Jess from South Bend, IN USA
Starting weight: 125lbs, Current weight: 119lbs. Age: 27 Sex: F
It's not really working for me at all at this point. My weight has stayed about the same since the first week I was on HH, which is leading me to believe that I only lost water weight the first week. I cannot take 3 pills twice daily. It's too much. I do cardio every day and pilates and weight training every other (rotating them). I'm eating healthy and I feel like crap all of the time. I'm constantly running to the bathroom and my stomach is usually upset. I try to make sure I drink plenty of water as I hear these pills just dehydrate you. I'm going to try to finish the bottle so I get my money's worth, but I would not recommend this to a friend. I guess everyone is different. I WOULD recommend eating right and exercising. Maybe check out the Body-for-Life program.
I have a real hard time believing a lot of the stories where people say they lost 5 pounds in 1 week and did nothing different but to take the pills. That doesn't seem right, but then I'm not expert and maybe just a little bitter because I've worked my butt off (not literally - I could only wish) for a month and have barley seen a change in my body.
Another thing I have noticed is that I'm getting foot and leg cramps more often now that I've been on the pills. I take a multi-vitamin and eat bananas almost daily. Related to the pills? I don't know...
I'm making an appointment with my doctor and I'll see what he has to say.

Well its been just over a week now and I have dropped one pound only...not the typical 5lbs that most people claim to lose. Ive also been preoccupied with my studies (not making enough time to work out) but I do find myself feeling more energized throughout the day. I started taking 2 pills a day as it has taken my system awhile to get used to the changes. I do agree with Dan and the dehydrated hangover thing. That was the worst feeling my first day. I am not a big drinker, it takes me all day to drink 32oz of water, but Im getting there...and it helps! Will stick with it, good luck ya'll.

Reviewer: Jake from Lynnwood, WA USA
Back for my update: So it's been a week now of using HH and my progress has stayed pretty even. I never noticed any kind of energy boost, still felt as hungry as before, and had no problem falling asleep. Never felt jittery, in fact it almost made me feel more tired and I was running out of steam faster during my workouts.
I have lost another 6 lbs since I started taking HH, and I can honestly say that it seems as though HH only makes things harder. Pretty dissapointed :( Maybe its all psychological?

Reviewer: Dan Smith from USA
The reason that some of you feel like your having a hangover is simple..... dehydration! just like a hangover the feelings of sickness and headaches can be prevented by staying hydrated the night before. I have been using this product for a few days and felt the same side effects that most people have described, that is until i started actually drinking the recomended water intake that is on the side of your hydroxycut.
This product works great!

Reviewer: Chris from Pago Pago, AS
I have used this product for over a month now and haven't lost a single pound..hehehe However I have noticed that I may have lost 2 sizes on my waist, seemingly to say that I have lost weight, but really gained 2+ lbs. I did noticed to have more energy when exercising, but I also noticed that it constipated me, badly. This was the first fat burner product I have tried and was looking to losing weight and not gaining so I'd give it a 3 stars. lol
I have tried a number of thermogenic / fat burning / diet pills over the last 10 years . I found Hydroxycut Hardcore to be the most effective one in a long time ...From the first dose i took , i could feel the thermogenic agents working but more importantly i have been on it now for 3 weeks and what impressed me the most is the energy it has given me . My cardio workouts are getting better each time and i constantly feel more pumped each time i work out ( like i can go longer each time ) . I have lost 27 lbs in 10 weeks and i believe Hyrdoxycut is one of the main reasons . i recommend this product

Reviewer: William from Hampton Roads Virginia
This stuff is great by itself but combine it with a good diet and work out plan and your gonna lose weight(i went from 360 to 230). On workout days I cut my dossage to one pill before or the full three after depending on my schedule. Will really pump you up to the point my friends and co-workers noticed the differnce in my peppy-ness. Will make you edgy until you get use to it so start off slow and adjust your dosage as needed and how your handling the change to your body.

This is my second day using this product and I like it much more than any other product I have ever used. A trick I've learned is take the pills after you eat not before meals. It takes away the jitters and it seems like it evens out the effects of the pills. I was 215 when I started. I'm 212 now. I want to get to 180 but muscular. I'm a 40 year old female,short and built like an ox (I guess my trainer thinks that is a compliment) I will keep you updated

I spend about 2 hours in the gym on workout days, mostly cardio. I've lost 11 lbs so far without HH. I just picked some up today because I'm losing my encouragement. I talked to the GMC employee and he said this may help me stay on track. I've always been a Heavy eater and it just keeps getting harder to stop from eating bad foods. Wish me luck :D

WEIGHT LOSS UPDATE-22 year old-maleMarch 05, 2009
Reviewer: LJ from TAMPA, FL
Hi everyone, I am back to give an update on my weight loss. The last posting i posted was on FEB 04, 2009 and i was down 5 pounds after 1 week of using the product. It is now March 5th, 09, 1 month later and I am down 20 pounds of body fat. Hydroxycut Hardcore is really working for me and I am over excited from the results. My eating habits are proteins, veggies, lots of water with lemon juice, and green tea. Working out 2-4 days a week with a healthy diet this product really works. I am only taking 3-4 caps a day. My headaches and fatigue have stopped and I am able to sleep without any problems at night. I am starting to receive alot of complements from others noticing my weight loss. I will continue to post my status after another month. I do hope you find this posting helpful and wish you the best of luck. Stay focus and encouraged by reading other positive postings and looking at weight loss results from others. If you are serious about this product because it is not cheap i strongly recommend not cheating yourself on your diet.
2 Pills lasted 2 daysMarch 04, 2009
Reviewer: Kevin from Cincinnati, OH
I just started taking Hydroxycut Hardcore yesterday. I haven't taken a thermogenic in a long time. Here's what I can tell you so far.
It has been over 18 hours since I took the 2nd capsule. I am STILL radiating heat. I may only take one today, and it will be later for sure.
The first day, I spent a good chunk of time on the potty, had the chills most of the day, sweated around the crotch a lot, was a little jittery, and could NOT fall asleep (I took the 2nd one at 2pm and tried to go to bed at 1am - couldn't happen).
But, I was INTENSELY focused, not hungry (I did eat though), but I felt it working for sure. Not sure how much fat I will be losing with this, but working out with this will probably make me MELT fat. I'll keep posting every week or so.
Not too bad so far... 5 lbs in 7 daysMarch 04, 2009
Reviewer: Jess from South Bend, IN USA
Age: 27, Sex: F, Height: 5'7", Start weight: 125 lbs. I started to take HH last Wednesday (2/25/09) and complimented the pills with interval cardio at 20 min per day and light resistance training every other day. I've also started trying to eat 5-6 small meals a day and taking multi-vitamins. I used to only drink a Coke in the afternoon, then dinner after work, then snack until I went to bed - with no regards to proper nutrition. The HH makes me feel a little "tweaked out" so I have not moved up to the 3 pills, twice a day yet. I'm only doing two until my body adjusts (started as instructions indicate). I've noticed more trips to the bathroom as well with a slightly irregular stomach. The only time the edge is taken off is after exercise, but I do have a great deal more stamina to do my cardio (never worked out in my life before now). Got on the scale before breakfast this morning and my weight has dropped to 120 lbs. Translation: 5 lbs in 7 days. Not too shabby, but I doubt I could have achieved these results without exercise and the obscene amount of water I've been drinking and possibly could have seen the same results without the aid of the pills - but they do make my workouts seem easier and that's a bonus!

Reviewer: Adam from Huntington Beach, CA
I just started taking HH after a friend recommended this to me. So far so good. I am already feeling better and the effect of this product. I am taking this along with some other supplements for my daily routine. I weighed 272 lbs about 2 years ago and cut the weight by eating healthy and LOTS of cardio. I am at 205 lbs current but have excess body fat in my legs and belly. This should help me get over the edge and hit my target weight of 185. I currently train in MMA and just looking to live a fat free life. The gym has to be your friend and home in order for you to see the results you are looking for. Nothing will happen unless you make it happen. But remember to not overdue yourself because it is easy to burn yourself out. Try Kick boxing and boxing. Excellent way to have fun while burning a large amount of calories in a short time.
Eat right, Be healthy, and remember to make it life changing. Its easier to put it back on then to loose it.
Tired Insomnia?February 28, 2009
Reviewer: Deb from Anytown, AT 55555
These pills boggle my mind haha. I don't get the jolt of energy like everyone seems to be getting. I on the other hand have the opposite where I get increasingly tired when I take these pills. All I want to do is take a nap, yet at night I can't sleep.
They are FANTASTIC at controlling appetite though. :)
P.S. I am female also.

Reviewer: African2009 from DC
Previous weight : 200 pounds
Current weight: 175 pounds
Lenght: 2 month to lose the weight.
Cap: 2 caps per day.
I started eating right and drinking a lots of green tea. Here is some of the food I started eating oatmeal, protein shake, eggs, tuna fish + all kinds of sea food meats, whole wheat, corn, chicken, subway, rice. Learn how to eat slowly and lightly. My last meals were usually around 8 pm. No late night eating unless it was some sort of fruit or veggie. Guys take care of your body by starting changing the way you eat. Make sure you walk and run. Listen to your heart beats and grab a heart monitor when you are running. Goodluck.

Thanks and i really appreciate it!!
AwesomeFebruary 23, 2009
Reviewer: Tucker from California
I have been using HH for about 3 days now, and it has been wonderful. One thing you must remember is that it will help you lose weight. It is not a miracle pill. An intense workout program needs to be undertaken when using this supplement. I weighed in at about 260 lbs and i am now down to 252 lbs. A key ingredient in this weight loss for me was most definitely a low calorie diet. At first I was thinking of just drinking a protein shake for my meals with some fruit, big mistake. Now I have changed my ways. Your calorie intake is directly related to portion control. So eating less is better but do not starve yourself because you will feel lousy. Do not eat junk food obviously. Another thing for me was taking the stated amount of pills per day. Follow the directions. I was first thinking "ok, well i am a pretty big guy so i should just start taking the 3 pills twice a day on the first day." Bad idea. I felt terrible. I do not know what else to say but good luck. I hope you all reach your goal weight.
No appetite but no sleep either...February 23, 2009
Reviewer: Maria, 20 years old from Canada
Hi there! I just started using this on Saturday Feb.21st, just 1 pill twice a day. I can already feel the difference, I'm more awake and my usual run on the treadmill is alot easier. I've been reading some of the reviews, most of them are from guys so I thought I would add one for the girls.... I haven't been sweating excessively at all, but my appetite is noticeably smaller. Many of these guys are saying that they lost 5 pounds the first couple days, no such luck with me, i'm still at the same weight but the way things are going, I'm hopeful!!
Also, as far as insomnia goes... I took a 2-hour nap this afternoon, and then I took 1 pill before my run at around 7 p.m., I thought I would be ok with the 4-5 hour cutoff before bed... and yet here I am, almost 2 a.m. and I almost want to go running again.
Other than that... I have a huge sweet tooth, before my run, as I was taking my pill I made a pan of brownies, and I haven't had one yet... don't want it, no desire for food, only water.
That's it for now, but I'll possibly post up my results in a couple weeks!

Reviewer: LJ from Tampa, FL
I love this product; this is the only fat burner that I have used that has really been a success for me. I started HH two days ago while in ketosis and working out with lots of cardio and I have lost 5 pounds of body fat. Although this is rather fast to be losing weight the only down fall is I have been feeling dizzy at times and I am unable to have a good night rest due to my body is burning so much fat at night. Other than that this product is GREAT. i strongly recommend this product. I will continue to post my status on here after two weeks to let you know how its working.

The good, the bad, and the uglyJanuary 31, 2009
Reviewer: Brittany from Montana
I've been taking hydroxycut off and on for many years, dating back to the original product. As for the newest form Hydroxycut hardcore:
The good: I find it very beneficial to aid in wt loss and increase energy.
The bad: I have a very high tolerance for caffine and can tolerate the product. People with a low tolerance for caffine should exercise EXTREME caution when using this product.
The ugly: Excessive or prolonged use of caffine and other chemical ingredients have a suspected link to certain types of cancer.
My conclusion: I like the product and recommend it for use with prudent caution.

if you want a boost of energyJanuary 28, 2009
Reviewer: Sunny from somewhere in sunshine cali
I’ve been taking this product for 1.5 months. The first week I only took 1 pill once a day. The following week I doubled up to 2 pills (all at once) and felt jittery and my hands were shaking; it felt like I drunk a pitcher of coffee and a six pack of soda (I also did not work out that morning). The next day I went back to 1 pill once a day and the third week to current I take 1 pill at 6:00 am before my kickboxing class and only take another in four hours if I know I’m going to do cardio/ weight training later that day. I have not weighed myself since I am weight training and muscle weighs more than fat. However, I have lost 1 ľ from my waist and hope to continue losing. I will never take more than 1 pill at one time. If anything, I will L-Glutamine if I want an extra boost. I strongly think this product should be taking only if you work out to increase your endurance. For me it only increases my energy to go longer than normal that’s why I’ve been losing weight quicker. I can’t see myself or imagine taking this pill and than going to sit at a desk or on a couch; I will go crazy with all of this energy sitting in one spot (there is no easy way to losing weight). Hope this helped and good luck.
Oh one more thing, if you are not a water drinker this product is not for you.

Im an overweight 22 year old that needed that extra help getting started. and that is when i found HH. I was 5'7" 343 when i started and 10 mos. later after changing my diet and exercising and taking the recommended dosage I am currently at 253 lbs. and still going strong. I encourage people to use this if u need the extra energy and the extra drive while starting to lose weight.
Pre-workout energyJanuary 20, 2009
Reviewer: Kayla from Little Rock, Arkansas USA
I use HH pre-workout for energy and I've found that if I take HH, I have A LOT more motivation to work out longer and a lot harder. If I do not take it before-hand, I'm usually tired and don't really want to do much. I used to take it for weight loss and didn't really see much of a difference, but it works great for energy.
I thought it would be better, but it really works!January 19, 2009
Reviewer: Gonzalo Alvarez from Chile
I heard from a friend that this is the best fat burner there is so I tried it(He had 13% and ended up with 7% body fat). I started taking it when I was already eating healthier and running a little. I weight 78 Kg (1.71 m tall) and taking it as it says on the bottle (5 week duration aprox) I ended up at 71.5 Kg, but also taking proteins and going to the gym 4 or 5 times a week, so I slowly loss weight as I saw fat going out, and muscles going in. I also ran like crazy, 5 times a week or so, 9 to 10 Km aprox. I ate relatively well (no fat) but giving up to my cravings of junk food one or twice a week. The product definitely give your muscles a nice ripped feeling, and you see that it works (people kept saying how thin I was), but sometimes I wonder if I could've had the same results without hydroxicut, because of all the exercise I did. But having my friend’s testimony as well .... I have to give it 4 stars, maybe with 2% less body fat i´ll give it 5. I started at 21% fat, finished up at 14%. I think I could've done better with my diet or eating habits, but I really excersised a lot. In regards to side effects, initially it was a little messy going to the bathroom, but that was about it, guess why? I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCCIONS, remember, its important not to take the max dose at once. I also noticed that my cravings where gone, when I saw a pizza or other junk food I didn't have the urge to have some, I could contain myself.
Go to a nutritionist, and be well informed, I saw some reviews that people said "Run on an empty stomach" or "Don't eat", muscles need energy and proteins, if not, its not the fat that gets burn, is the muscles. Eat properly 5 to 7 times a day and youll see results beyond your imagination. I hope this helps, I saw this reviews before I start taking hydroxicut and I said that I would post my experience in orther to help others as it helped me.
GreatJanuary 19, 2009
Reviewer: Josh from Seattle, WA USA
I started taking this about a week ago, along with a total body clenser. When I take to much in a day, I feel shakey and "spun" but I just lower the dose and its better. Iv noticed a HUGE energy boost, which has been fantastic. I have also noticed that my stomach feels tighter, less flabby. It has helped me control my appetite more than I would have thought. Iv dropped almost 15 pounds. Iv also mostly cut out soda. I have not been working out though. I dont take it after 4 Pm though because it gives me trouble sleeping if I do. Overall, once you adjust it to your body it is a fantastic thing. At first I was skeptical but the girl at the store said I could return it within 30 days if I didnt like it. It is 100% worth it and I will continue to use it.

Wrestler Satisfied... for now.January 06, 2009
Reviewer: Wisconsin Wrestler from NE Wisconsin, USA
I'm a Wrestler in High School. Yeah i'm not 18 but there's far worse things i could be doing. I've been taking HH for since Friday (Jan 2nd). i Started the season (late NOV.) at 165, dropped to 150. right before a long christmas (no wrestling) break i put myself through complete hell and got to 143 for a tournament. i was back up to 158 after Christmas and was told by a state champion to take this. On Jan.4th i was at 155 and between a very tough diet of one very small dinner, almost no liquids each day and a protein shake for lunch, 2HH in the morn. and 2 HH 30 mins before dinner i was at 145.3 after today's practice. (Two weight classes in 2 days) Not bad and it's regulated my weight so i barely put any weight back on each day. Sweat over a pound each night which is a dream for wrestlers before a meet/tourny... I'm satisfied. The only problem i found is extra sweating is fuel for acne and the 120 ($60) pills will not even last me the whole month

Reviewer: Satisfied Middle Aged Dude... from Chicago Illinois
I went from 221 to 192 in 2 months taking H-Hardcore. I'm 44 & 6 feet tall. I didn't change any workout or eating habits. I just took the product, dose 1 at 7am & dose 2 at 3pm daily. I still worked out & ate the same foods, quantities etc as per the last 10 years. Still lifted weights 4 times a week, 2 days upper body for 45 minutes & 2 days lower body for 30 minutes. Still did cardio 4 times a week. 2 days for 30 minutes & 2 days for 45 minutes on an elliptical machine. Was between 216 & 221 for 10 years. I looked good before taking the product but now I look ripped including my abs! 29 pounds in 60 days. The 61-114 day and counting period I just took 1 tablet 2 times a day at the same time as before and am still at 192 and happy.

Reviewer: Adam from Dayton, OH USA
I used HH for about 2 months and I lost over 20 lbs....it's probably different with every person, but if you eat pizza and drink beer everyday you probably won't loose any weight. I started a eating schedule, about 6, 200-300 calorie, meals 3 hours apart everyday and drank the recommended amount of water with HH and it works, all without exercise. I am getting ready to start on HH again and use the same meal program and a work out program as well....this product works if you're smart
Does workDecember 23, 2008
Reviewer: Ryan from Toronto , Ontario
This product does work in one week I lost 10 lbs with no exercise, but I did watch what I was eating, and drank alot of water. What I will say is I think this product shows results on people with a little or alot of extra weight if your already in good shape and looking to lose that last five lbs keep working out. I went from 195 to 185 in 1 week no WORKOUT. Honestly just watch what you eat and drink lots of water and you'll feel fine, but thats all in the instructions for those of you who dont actually read them , read them and you'll feel fine. If you feel bad your not using the product right.

Wonder BurnerDecember 09, 2008
Reviewer: Christina from USA
I have been taking this fat burner for 2 months. Combining 2 x 3 caps a day with healthy eating and exercising regularly I have gone from 175 pounds to 155. Im lucky as I dont get the jitters at all and I sleep normally. The only thing that I have noticed is having to go the bathroom more (but this is to be expected as I am drinking a lot more water). As with any supplement it always depends on the person taking it as to what effects it will have. I will continue to take this product as IT WORKS!.

Reviewer: Carol from Cape Cod
I have taught spinning for over ten years and I am 6' tall and still weigh 185lbs. I hit a plateau and now I am hoping this product will give me the energy to push a little harder. I am at day 1. I plan on eating a green and a protein in the morning and then something throughout the day, even if it's steamed green beans. From what I have read, is that the people who just don't eat on this product, find that their metabolism slows down so when they get off the product, they blow up bigger than they were before. This is a good way to start not a diet but a change in the way you eat and intensify your workouts. I think I will go take a before photo of my bra fat now! lol

Reviewer: Marcus from NSW, Australia
I tried Hydroxycut Hardcore after being very disappointed with Man Scorch.
Weighing in at 231 pounds i was unhappy with my appearance and felt lethargic constantly, even though i was lifting weights 3-4 times a week.
Tried HH and got an immediate boost, giving me more energy than ive had in years.
Combining HH with a healthy diet, exercise and weightlifting, i was able to go from 231 pounds to 171 pounds in a period of 6 months.
Im now fit, healthy and buff and i owe alot of this to Muscle Tech and their brilliant products.
I experienced little side effects apart from peeing alot.

I just started with hydroxy cut 4 days ago. I am 22 years old, 6 feet tall, at 180 lbs. I workout 4 days a week, mostly cardio. My goal is to lose 15 lbs over the winter and decided to try my first diet supplement to give me a boost.
I started at 1x2 a day and decided to step it up after no side effects the first two days. I am now doing 2x2 a day and I feel great. I am getting a great energy boost in the morning (i don't drink coffee) so I feel more productive at work and I have noticed fewer urges to snack. I will get back with another review in a few days to let you know what I have lost over the first week. So far, so good.
Depends..November 09, 2008
Reviewer: Jax from vancouver, BC Canada
im aa 17 year old, quite thick, weighing at 225. and ive been just dieng to drop the pounds, so i was told by a teamate to try hydroxy cut and so i did. the first week i tried it i lost 3 pounds, i just wanted to try it at the time. i was at 2 pills a day and never felt side effects.
im starting up again, and ive been readin some of the reviews and people have been complaining about the side effects or have been doing well.. my opinion is that every body is different in shapes and weight and metabolisms are different.. your body can only tolerate so much of hydroxycut, and most of the people who have been complaining are saying they are taking 4-6 pills right wen they begin to use it. theres a reason why there are INSTRUCTIONS to use HH. it asks you to drink alot of water so it can flush through your system with less headaches. (hint, drink alot of water)
i suggest you start by 1x2 a day and see how your body feels after a week, if your fine, then up your dosage. know your limit. wen i started i felt some extra energy yes, and loss a couple pounds. and note i took it b4 our teams practices and games and didnt eat very healthy at the time, but after a while i started running every other night and still continue doing it.
I recommend using hydroxycut if you really want to burn the fat, it works great if you keep within your limit.

HH definitely has helped me so farOctober 23, 2008
Reviewer: Chante from Georgia
I am a 19 year old college student and I started taking HH 8 days ago and I am happy to say that I am starting to see results. On the first day I definitely felt jittery and I saw my hands shake but after 3 days the shaking subsided. I did the 1x2 serving for 3 days and then progressed to 2 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. I am now comfortable taking 2x2 a day. I would definitely recommend not trying to take the maixmum amount because sleeping will definitely be difficult. I'm going to give HH at least two weeks before I give a definite opinion on it. Honestly though, you have to workout at least a few days a week and just slightly curve your eating habits. In college, beer and pizza has been my diet but HH has definitely encouraged me to eat at least one salad everyday and to lay off the pizza. I hope this helped! :)

hey i just have a few things since i have read some of your comments about this product...ive been readin that some ppl think that HH is not good and for one thing you have to obviously read the directions and talk to someone who really know what there doing...i just started on the HH yesterday...and have been told the results are awesome...onn thing i have read that some of you posted are that you get all shaky...you have to realize that if your really dedicated on using this that you should also be taking over things instead of just HH i was told to take just a bit of protien aswell as fiber...and ive been taking fish oil tablets...also too you shoudnt be taking this stuff late in the day as it gives you alot of energy...i was told to take it just b4 4pm...and in the morning...i see alot of ppl complaining about them not being able to sleep at night blah blah but you need to think common sense...just my thoughts...

It works but it makes you feel sickOctober 07, 2008
Reviewer: Alonzo W. from CORPUS CHRISTI, TX
I used Hydroxycut Hardcore for about 8wks, I'm 6ft1 before I used it was 240lbs but now I'm 208lbs. It does work but the side effects are terrible, you feel sick and jittery, your heart is racing. I was in the Navy while I was using it, I had to take a drug test once and the doctor thought something was wrong with my kidneys cause of the products on the Hydroxycut, since then I have stopped taking it and will never take it again. The side effects are not worth it.

It Worked For MeSeptember 29, 2008
Reviewer: Ralph from LA, CA
I'm a model and I started taking this to get my six pack back, not really to lose much weight. I started off at 182.3 pounds (I'm 6'2").
One month later, I am 174.8 pounds and my six pack is coming through and looking good. I have found that if you work out like it says on the bottle, you WILL see results. If you don't work out and you still take the pills, it won't have much of an effect at all. I definitely notice results in my abs the day after working them out and running. I know that if I did more cardio, my six pack would be amazing right now (I really hate running though).
The Cons: Sometimes my hands get shaky (like it does when you don't get enough protein), and for the first week, I had diahhrea quite often (pooing out the fat I guess).
This stuff works. It also keeps you motivated to workout because if you don't workout, it has no effect. Good luck!

Extreme Kidney PainSeptember 10, 2008
Reviewer: Olaf from Florida
Extreme Kidney pain.
I start using Hydroxycut about 3 weeks ago. Instead of taking the first 2 capsule daily serve 2 for 3 days I took it for 7 days.
The Side effects are not listed on the package, but I think there are a lot of them.
First usage I got very dizzy, weak and hungry, thirsty. Than my kidney start hurting in such bad pain. After taking the 4 capsule
daily that pain drove me insane, immediately after taking that pill the pain in my kidney starts bothering me. No my eyes starts getting dry
out, went to the doctor because I thought had dirt or dust in my eyes but he says I have a natural eye moisture failure.
I went down on the 2 capsule doses but the pain still occurs right after taking.
I reject the pills now and will not use them anymore.
My brother use the same capsule over the same period, he had the exactly same side effects.
Hydroxycut burns fat, that’s for sure, but what kind of price you have to pay. A kidney failure, maybe.

Not as GoodSeptember 04, 2008
Reviewer: Erick from Yonkers, NY
I started taking this product when I was 185lbs. A month after I am still 185lbs. Therefore, it has not helped me lose any weight. A good thing is that I did not gain. I did not have a lot of side effects because I was drinking plenty of water and went to the Gym 5 days a week. I was expecting to lose 15 pounds and was unsuccesful.

I have been taking the hardcore for almost a week now and I am liking it. The friend that I workout with got shredded using it and while we are different body types i have faith that it will help.I hit a wall with the weight loss and working out so I needed this. The best part is when it kicks in while working out,I do drink caffine so the only dose that was hard was the initial one. The energy and recovery the next day are great. I recommend it, just follow the instructions and drink drink drink water!

7 Months and goingAugust 21, 2008
Reviewer: RLC from PGH PA
On January 3rd 2008 I weighed 341lbs. I had never been this heavy and this trip to the Dr. had me so depressed, I had to do something about it. My wife brought home the South Beach Paper Back book and I followed the 14 day meal plan. I lost 13 lbs in 2 weeks! I did nothing but used the meal plan and only put those foods into my body. Soon I was addicted to the weight loss! I started going to the GYM 6 days a week. Cardio! A smart person told me time and distance are the only two variables! 20 minutes...I couldn't even go 1/2 mile. I soon lost more weight. I needed something to help with the energy. I tried the plain Hydroxycut product! I liked the energy. the next dosage was the HH product. Now, I am addicted. When I started the program I did feel funny but now and through that I need to take the product. It is needed for me to stay motivated. Because of the addition of the weight training I have not been loosing for awhile. But I now weigh 258lbs. I have lost 85lbs while taking the product. This is not all due to the product but it certainly has helped with my ability to stay focused.
I hope some folks out there can try this.
Best Fat Burner EverAugust 19, 2008
Reviewer: Aashish from New Zealand
I am 19 years old and just had to write something about Hydroxycut Hardcore. This product is fantastic. I was a little nervous the first time taking this product because of other people talking about side effects like heart problems,headaches,nausea. But after taking this product for around 3 days I love it. I have noticed an immediate increase of energy that helps me do cardio for longer and with more intensity than before. I was going 17.4kms in 45 minutes of stationary bike training. After taking my first dose of HH I did 27.6kms in 45 minutes. I added over 10 kilometers without feeling tired in the same amount of time and I have no side effects. Just make sure you read the directions and slowly increase the dosage to assess your individual tolerance to caffine and you should be fine. Recommended 100%.

Not a bad dealAugust 18, 2008
Reviewer: Heather from LI, NY
This is my fourth day of using HH. I was going to get the regular one, but the guy told me at HH works better. I was sick and tired of my dad telling me I was fat. I'm not fat - 126 at 5'1, I'd just like to lose a few more pounds. This week has been busy with me packing for school so I haven't been able to train for my bike tour. So far, I lost a pound.
The only side effects I get is jitters. I don't drink coffee and I'm not a big tea person, so my body's not used to the sudden increase in caffeine. I do have energy and I don't have to eat as much as I used to. I recommend this product so far.. let's see how much more I lose in the upcoming weeks. :)

It works!August 12, 2008
Reviewer: Eddie from Chicago, IL
I took hydroxycut 4 years ago and it boosted my energy and gave me the drive to get up and work out. It works great drink tons of water only no pop or nasty sugar drinks. Eat good healthy meals and cut your calories you shouldn't be hungry it will help that. I lost 40 pounds in six months. I did cardio every other day and lifted weights every other day. I also did as many pushups and situps I could do when I woke and before bed. It works oviously the working out had a big effect. I feel it really helps the motivation and speeds up you metabolism. I definatly sweated more but I always sweat alot. Only got dissy or headache if I didn't drink enough water. Any way I had a level 4 ac separation in my shoulder from a mountain bike accident and my whole routine fell threw. Four years and 40 pounds back I am ready for another go. I'm on day two and already feel very driven to work out. I don't see why it wont work again. I am 26 now. My buddy who is 27 just lost about 30 pounds on this over the last year. IT WORKS DRINK WATER! LOTS OF WATER AND DON'T GIVE UP!
Loosing Inches......August 12, 2008
Reviewer: V-Love from Fontana, CA USA
Today is August 12, 2008. I started Hydroxycut Hardcore on 7/24 weighing 213.8, by 7/27 I was down to 209.8. In 3 days weight loss. I have been working out since Feb 2008 and little results. My workout scheduled is as follows: 3 days a week (day 1 = Cardio Only (1 hr 1/2), day 2 = Cardio (30mins)/Upper Body, day 3 = Cardio (30 mins)/Lower body.) I have also started adding another day of cardio.
In addition to this supplement I have been taking Nitro-Tech Hardcore (Protein drink mix). As a result, I have been loosing inches, like crazy. But I have notice a little weight gain too....
My last weigh in was 210.00. I gained muscle, so I would contribute that to the protein drink mix.
I plan to drop the Nitro-Tech Hardcore (Protein drink mix) and just focus on the fat lost, then go back to the protein drink.....Inches are good, but I want to see the scale move too. : ) I will continue until November to see how things turn out. will keep ya'll updated...

my thoughts on HHAugust 04, 2008
Reviewer: T dot from toronto
i'm 22 and used to weigh about 180lbs. i wasn't active at all for the past year and didn't do any activities, basically i was a couch potato. i signed up to a gym and basically for a month i was doing cardio daily and lost about 8lbs. after hearing about HH i started taking it under the suggested intake and right now its probably been about 2 months now that i've been on it. i go to the gym six times a week and do cardio for about an hour and a half daily, ab workouts for about 30min daily, and weights for about another hour. i've never hand any of the side effects mentioned in any of these reviews. right now i'm down to 135lbs. and looking leaner than ever. i personally think HH is great as long as you eat right and undergo an intense workout.
MK from Canada is WRONG!!!August 03, 2008
Reviewer: Jess from Texas
MK from Canada from above obviously knows NOTHING about how the body works during workout. I am a physical trainer and I know that your body does not just skip the whole digestive process and CHOOSE to burn the fat in your last meal! A preworkout meal is so that your body does not eat away muscle druning your workout. BAM! No food? Your body eats away at your muscle. Hydroxycut only SUPPLEMENTS your workout and good food choices. Any physical trainer will tell you that the pre- and post-workout meals are EXTREMELY important whether you take hydroxycut or not! In other words, if you don't know what you are talking about, don't suggest that others do as you are doing... get the facts straight.
The end of Day 3July 31, 2008
Reviewer: Claudette from Southern Gal, USA
I'm a tall 19 year old American girl. Being 5'8 and weighin 171 isn't exactly where I want to be in this point in time. I'm a fashion expert and am aware of the fact that if I lean a bit, i'll feel much more confident in what I wear. I've tried to diet, eat less, work out, blah blah blah, ONE thing always seems to beat me- THE TIME PERIOD FROM 8PM-MIDNIGHT. i have massive cravings.
I bought HH 3 days ago, and for the end of my third day, I know I can not expect much. The first night, I took the pill 4 hours before I went to bed and it took me 2 hours to fall asleep ( when it regularaly takes me 20 minutes) and I woke up at 4am, fell asleep and then woke up again at 6am.Then I just got up.
Read the label, carefully, and my mistake was that I took it at the time frame I wasn't supposed to before I hit the sack.
I'm a very energetic gal and if this is giving me a boos of energy or not, I can not really tell.
Everything takes hard work and dedication so I will take it for 2 months, forbid any serious side effects occur.
I need advice though, how can i get rid of those late cravings? Wheat bread with turkey ham is what I eat at times if not just fiber cereal. But please! Ice cream and cookies are still calling my name!!

Reviewer: LauraR from Ocala,FL USA
I actually just started using Hydroxycut Hardcore today. I wake up around 7:00am and take it, then at 8 i take spinning class.Then in the afternoon around 2-3 i go to the gym 20 mins of running and work out regularly. I've read a lot of reviews that mention dizzyness, tiredness, or sudden bursts of energy. I haven't felt any of that. I will keep you guys informed of any weight loss, or side affects. I do have a question, and it would be very nice if I get responses.
Question #1- on the bottle it says wait 5 hours until eating another meal. I'm starving by 4 hours. Is there any side effects if I eat earlier than it says
If you do your part, HH will do its part.July 29, 2008
Reviewer: Kenneth from Providence, RI USA
no pill will make you lose weight, they are meant to SUPPLEMENT your weight loss plan, not something to build a weight loss plan by themselves. With that said...
This is a great fat loss supplement. For me, i have lost 7 pounds in a matter of 3 weeks, which may not seem like a lot, but look at it this way: I would probably have lost the same amount of weight with the way I eat on this stuff, but with a lot more pain and suffering. With this supplement, I maintained 1800 cal/day with little hunger (And im a rather muscular guy whos basic needs hover around 2500 cal/day), and was basically full all day. Just a few things to remember with this stuff.
1- If you lose 5 pounds in 1 week, it is 99.9% likely water wieght, because this stuff does act like a diuretic (the caffeine). Dont count the losses until at least 2 weeks have gone by, and only if you are drinking at least 64oz of water a day to replace the water you lose do to the caffeine.
2- Many real fat losses dont start with this stuff until at least a week in, I've found that many effects of HH improve with time, so if its not working a few days in, give it time. same thing with the side effects, they can be annoying but generally dissapear with time.
3- Take it slow. Dont rush in to 6 pills/day, it may turn out you dont even need that much. Im a 200 pound average hieght male and i find that 2 pills 2 times a day (4 TOTAL) works great for me.
Highly reccomend this stuff, but dont think you dont have to do some work yourself, there is no magic pill, and if there was it sure wouldnt be healthy or safe.

You can't lose weight by sitting and eating Potato ChipsJuly 06, 2008
Reviewer: Cool Guy from DC, United States
I am Male, 27 years old.
I weighted 205 Ib and now 171 IB.
It took me about 4-5 month to lose the weight.
Most of the fat people chill at home and complain about how tough losing weight is. I was 200Ib because I loved eating Chips and Ice cream late at night while watching America Most Wanted (my fav TV show).
Yes I was the big guy who didn't workout for a year. I was caught up with American life Style. So I started working out and counting my calories intake. I realized that by eating junk food it will kill my body. So I started working out and taking Hydroxycut. Now, I am back in shape and believe me, it feels good not to be among the 65% fat Americans . The key is to run at least three times a week. Get a heart monitor to check your heart beat and you will stay healthy.
Drink a lot of water and run more. Quit the junk food and eat healthy. Will Smith said it best " If you run five miles a day, you will turn your body to anything you want".

Reviewer: Joseph from miami, florida
I started taking hydroxycut hardcore in order to get back into shape after a decline in my health. I had great results. I followed the directions on the bottle and took it for a period of 4 weeks. In the four weeks I ended up going from 225 pounds to 205 pounds and looking a lot leaner than I had previously looked. I never once experienced any side effects of this drug.
However I have a word of advice for anyone that is reading this review. This drug will work to make you lose that fat that you have, but it is not a miracle drug. Obviously, you can't drink any alcohol at all when you're taking it; it'll ruin your liver. Second of all, there is quite a boost of energy and a loss of appetite which is absolutely normal. I honestly recommend this drug for anyone between the ages of 18-35 but if you're older than that, you may run the risk of having a heart attack. Truth is this drug will elevate your heart rate to higher than normal levels and as you get older, a really elevated heart rate isn’t such a good idea. However, this is fine if you're jogging or having a light weight lifting session but if you're trying to go hardcore and run a marathon while this substance is in your system, chances are you'll experience the unwanted side effects.
You only get one body and one life. As with all supplements you take, exercise caution with this drug and don't try to overdo it. Also, once you've lost the weight and stopped taking the pills, keep going to the gym and living a healthy lifestyle, if not you'll get back to where you were before. It'll give you the metabolic boost you need, but it is not a permanent thing and if you slack, you'll get fat again.

Reviewer: M.K. from Canada
You don't have a pre-workout meal. You just take hydroxycut and GO! The thing is, when you workout cardio, you're body needs carbs, in other words, ENERGY! So when you workout on an empty stomach, your body will check the stomach and look for food to turn into energy, BAM! No food? So where does it get the energy from? YOUR FAT SUPPLY. Because what if fat? Stored carbs and what not, storages, reserves of energy that your body doesn't really use. So you'll burn the fat that you already have while working out. If you eat a meal, your body will just use the energy from that meal and not from your fat, so you just burn what you just ate, not your fat. Hydroxycut speeds that process up, it speeds your heart rate so your body actually digs DEEPER into your fat supply, it acts as a catalyst as I said before, if you burn 200 calories on a 5 min run on an empty stomach, you could burn 300 calories in reality in 5 min if u take hydroxycut on an empty stomach and then do cardio. HH is not a food, it just speeds up your heart rate so your body is more efficient at burning fat when you get into the GYM.

hi.. i just bought hydroxycut hardcore two days ago and there is something that is confusing me. i usually have a pre-workout meal one hour before my workout. my question is when do i have to take the hydroxycut capsules?immediately after i eat the pre-workout meal and wait for about an hour and go to the gym or do i have to follow the same instructions as the label indicate, that is to take the capsules 30 to 60 minutes before the pre-workout meal, then have the meal after the 60 minutes of eating the capsules and wait for another hour to go to the gym?

I just bought this product today at GNC.I made the mistake by taking three,then a good workout.I went to the local supermarket afterwards and barely was able to checkout my heart raced, I began to sweat,my hands we shaking like crazy,I also was ready to call 911.Made it home and grab something to eat fast and lots of water!!,I am 41 and workout everyday,I have read all the reviews and I advise you to also.I want to start by saying jimmys review from detroit was dead on..Watch what you eat,dont drink additional coffee with this burner,start lose dose at first,I do see the younger people here taking quite abit,this may work for them and there tolerance level is accustomed to it,be careful,AND READ LABEL,I am sure this is a good product if taken correctly.
Great Product...But Drink ResponsiblyJune 26, 2008
Reviewer: Brian from PA
I've been taking Hydroxycut Hardcore for almost a month now and have lost 12 pounds of pure fat. The appetite suppressant is amazing and I couldn't believe how less hungry I was. I work on a farm and the job is very physically demanding. I also work out regularly. If you have an outside type job as I do, drink as much water if not more then the bottle recommends. You will feel faint (heatstroke) if you do not. When doing a very hard workout, I had great energy (without shakes) but my heartrate soared. And lastly, Drinking beer dehydrates you, hydroxycut removes water as well, and if you do not keep water in your system at a higher rate then beer, you will become extremely intoxicated, dehydrated, and vomit all night. So, this product works tremendously, but you must use it as directed, and drink very responsibly.
whats wrongJune 26, 2008
Reviewer: Michael from kansas city, mo USA
i think you can be fine on this product if you FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS! there is an exception,you don't have to eat three pills twice a day... calm down after three days taking one pill twice a day, then. take two pills twice to three times a day at most, make sure you take your multi vitamins. this isnt for every one this product is considerd a toner the only reason i'm going to try it is to tone fat and then build up mass, you cant do this stuff with out making sure you want to work out. drink lots of water anyways,, i will start a 120 bottle tomorow first time, and if i don't like it guess what ?? ill take it back .. um and we will for sure see if it works im a 19 year old male weighing 345, i guess ill post again in a few weeeks i hope i use it smart? its all in my hands i bought the stuff,

Reviewer: Bbus from Anytown, AT 55555
i have been taking this product for about 2 weeks now and thought id share some thoughts. I have been really pleased with the product and im already starting to lose fat. I feel the biggest contribution HH has is the energy it gives you in the gym and loss of an appetite! i train about 4 times a week an play some football as well. id recommend it to anyone who wants to lose a bit of a gut! i have had limited side effects, had a slight headache on the day i took 9 pills( way too much) but its no biggy- other than that had nothing but i would stick to the plan it gives you. overall quality product
THE TRUTH - Please READJune 24, 2008
Reviewer: M.K. from Canada
Alright, I'm a 19 year old male, been using HH for a little while, and I have to say, works amazing. However, I was VERY skeptical and did not want to try at first, so just like all of you, I went through PAGES AND PAGES of reviews. I realized, about 60% of the people said it was worth it, 40% said No. I read the side effects or symptoms. People said Nausea, Upset Stomach, Cramps, HEADACHES, dizzy'ness, and what not. Alright people, listen, HH is for those who are not SIGNIFICANTLY over weight. If you're bodyfat is over, let's say, 30%, DO NOT USE IT. I was about nearly 23%. Also, HH is NOT for couch potatoes. People complain it gives tons of energy and blah blah and makes them sweat and they faint and blah. Listen, HH is FOR THOSE OF YOU that HAVE a diet plan and an exercise routine, don't think just because you go to the gym once a week and eat a mediocre diet its going to help. The label says proper exercise AND diet. Meaning, 5-6 small meals a day, proper foods, low sugars and bad fats. Plus, this routine should be set up along with cardio at LEAST 3 times a week, good intensity cardio, like where you jog and get sweaty. Do this for a few months so your body is accustomed to high heart rate and fast metabolism. If you take it OUT of the blue, OBVIOUSLY it's gonna have side effects. I weight trained 3 times a week, did a bit of cardio, ate 6 meals a day, and had a fairly active lifestyle for 6 months. THEN I started HH and guess what? All those side effects people said, I haven't experienced ANY! Headaches? Nausea? NOT even. People say they go to the bathroom a lot, nothing changed for me. NOTHING at all. Except for the fact that I lost 4-5 pounds of fat in my first week. With diet and exercise alone, you can probably rid yourself of 2, maybe 3 pounds a week. HH is just a catalyst, it'll speed that up. So IN CONCLUSION, It is SAFE, just make sure you already have a routine set up beforehand. Generally, this product is more athletes, and those people that live FAIRLY active lifestyles. If you eat 5-6 small meals a day, go to the bathroom regularly, drink at least 8 glasses of water, go for a GOOD sweating job at least 3-4 days a week, AND have been doing this for AT least 6 months, THEN HH will definetly work for you, if you just wanna start outta the blue, it will definetly not do anything for you. It is truly a fantastic product, and I am probably the biggest skeptic, having seen commercials for it for YEARS. Just like all of you, I read LOADS AND LOADS of reviews, but again, HH is a temporary thing, take it until you reach your desired goal, but going past 3 months is ridiculous. I hope this helps, and you all understand HH is just something to aid you, something that extends your foundation. You NEED a foundation to begin with, and I'll say again, Proper diet, 5-6 meals a day, cardio 3-4 times a week, fairly active lifestyle, proper nutrition. Oh, and take with a multi-vitamin. For men I recommend MegaMen Sport. So again remember, I'm only 19 years old, I just barely passed the minimum you have to be to take this product. So consider these points before you take HH, it's not a miracle pill, it's an aid to help you achieve what you want. (Plus, increased your heart rate if taken before a cardio session so you burn more fat then before, it has 95% polyphenols which are antioxidents that balance cholesterol, and act as a detox for the body)
The Best Fat Burner I Have Ever UsedJune 23, 2008
Reviewer: Harry from UK
I’ve been using HH for nearly 3 weeks now and the result are incredible. It takes a little while to get used to the effects – you feel very wired in the beginning and it can be a little unnerving. However once you’re past the first few days HH will blow you away. Not only does it get you amped for your workouts so that you give every session everything you’ve got, but more importantly it suppresses you’re appetite so well. My biggest problem was always overeating (I am the definition of greedy), but with this stuff you actually have to force yourself to eat. Its very easy to forget to eat some meals. Now I make sure I eat healthily when I can manage it – about 1800 calories a day on average, no carbs after 6 etc. and I never feel hungry. More importantly I’ve lost all the cravings I used to have for sweet things. Its so easy to eat properly now and I love it. Between the appetite suppression, the intense workouts, and the norepinephrine (‘fat-burning hormone’) elevation that is apparently taking place, the weight is falling off. I’ve lost 9lb in the first 2.5 weeks, most of that from my stomach and hips, and I’m starting to look much more defined than I ever have. More importantly I haven’t loss any muscle mass or size – some of the loss will be water weight (caffeine is a powerful diuretic) but I truly believe the majority of loss has been fat. By the end of a month of taking this I hope to be a full 7kg/14lb lighter than when I started, which is pretty awesome. It hasn’t been effortless – its important to exercise at least every other day to help the weight loss, but as I say eating right has been a breeze. The only side effect I have is occasional nausea, but it doesn’t last for long. Luckily no headaches, and I never have difficulty getting to sleep, although I always take the second dose at least 7hrs before bed. If you respond to HH the way I have, you will be blown away by how good it is. Definitely worth the money. The important thing to remember is different people are different sizes and have different tolerance to things like caffeine. Dont feel pressured to wolf down 6 capsules a day (although I do, and it works for me, but I'm 6'2 and fairly well built). A 5'5 woman will probably not need the same dose, so dont push it if you feel absolutely spaced on 4 a day, for example). If you cant sleep at night, take the second dose earlier. Listen to your body and you'll be fine. Happy weight loss!
The best diet pill I've used.June 22, 2008
Reviewer: Lisa from Mariposa, CA
I've been overweight all of my life. After the first of this year I began a low calorie,low fat, high protien diet with HHC and moderate/low exercise. In less than 6 months, I've lost 45 pounds, and am at my goal weight for the first time in my life and you can see the muscles in my abdomen (easy crunches). I am even going for another 10. This has been so easy, it makes me sad I never did it before. Also, I work the graveyard shift and HHC really helps keep me awake and focused. I'll never stop taking it.

It doses give you energy.I have a little fat on my lower abs that I want to cut, it seems to be working, but I don't know if it is the HH OR the more intense workouts and diet that I've been doing.One piece of advice, do not drink more than 2 to 3 drinks with this product. I Drank more and I was acting insane and couldn't remember a thing!!!!.
Is it worth it?June 16, 2008
Reviewer: Sickly from Chicago Illinois
I just started taking HH today after it was recommended to me at a local GNC. However, after following the instructions, I have had a feeling of restlessness and jittery. Also, I have had a bad case of diahrea, and upset stomach, along with blurred vision. I'm not sure if the symptoms will go away. I'm going to try HH for the next few days to see if it was something I ate(which I doubt, since it was just a small portion of pasta, and a salad today, or if its the HH. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone taking a SSRI medication.

Eliminates Appetite but Side Effects aren't Worth ItJune 06, 2008
Reviewer: Glen from Melbourne, FL
I started to use this product according to the directions. I also drink muscle milk. I'm 46 y/o male and have some slight love handles that I'm working hard to get rid of, e.g. weights and cardio. The first week on this fat burner, I thought I was going to have a heart attack. I stopped using for two weeks and then started at half the dose. Yesterday after my 2 hour workout, I had a wave of sickness come over me, e.g. nausea, headache, no appetite. I went to bed early and woke up feeling fine. I cannot recommend this product as I believe the dangers are not worth it. Could be my age though but I've exercising for over 30 years excluding the last few years and have never experienced an issue like this.

Still losing weight!!! Week 5May 19, 2008
Reviewer: Jimmy from Detroit, Michigan
Well guys and gals I'm posting another update on my weight loss progress. So far so good. I am still losing weight, but not as fast. The first 3 weeks I lost like 17 pounds. It was crazy. But, my body has adjusted to the tolerance of HH. I have still been losing like 2-3 pounds a week. Which is much safer bet now that I think about it. I have been getting so many compliments on my weight loss. This makes me really happy with the product. Adjusted my work out a little. I jog Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 1 hour at 5mph. After the run I do ab work like 10 minutes. I started lifting weights on Tuesday, and Thursday to give my legs a break. Plus, I was starting to get chicken legs! I still only take about 3 pills a day. If I take 4, my heart feels funny when I work out. So for me, 3 pills is the perfect amount. I know I would have lost more weight if I didn't go out to the bars on the weekend. But, HH helps me burn off the extra alchol calories. I still watch what I eat, and work out 5 days a week. I have been really impressed with the results. I have lost like 20-25 pounds in 6 weeks. Thats damn impressive to me. Still, I did it by watching my diet and exercising while taking this product. I will let you know more about my progress in another 3 weeks. Chao! Enjoy the summer!
Different for everyoneMay 18, 2008
Reviewer: GT from Anytown, AT 55555
There's always a lot of controversy with fat burners, both in how well they work, and also the side effects they bring. The fact of the matter is, 99% of the time, it depends on the person. There will never be a product everyone is thrilled with, because there are too many factors that draw into the equation. Whether it is a matter of genetics, age, diet, exercise etc, there are of number of elements that can determine the overall success. When it comes down the it, Hydroxycut is a very good product, but the results will ultimately be different for everyone. All supplements basically need to be used both responsibly, and with a certain amount of common sense.
Nothing else worked for me but Hydroxycut HardcoreMay 16, 2008
Reviewer: Kelly from Montana
It seems like it's impossible for me to lose weight. I have a very hard time. I've tried a ton of different pills, but nothing worked except HH. I lost 4 pounds in the first 3 weeks, which I thought would be impossible, but it worked for me.
It gives me a ton of energy, and I need it because I am raising 2 young boys. I do get a little queasy when I take my morning dose, but if I eat within a half hour or so,I feel fine. It doesn't give me headaches like it does to some people. I actually have frequent headaches normally but HH doesn't affect them in a bad way.
I still continue to take it, for about 2 months now, and am still losing weight. I have lost a total of 10 pounds, and I consider it a blessing. I started at 181, and am now kind of plateuing at 171. I thank HH for helping me lose my baby weight when nothing else would.

Works with Side EffectsMay 11, 2008
Reviewer: Nina from Bella Vista, AR
I agree with some of the other reviews. You have to find out what your tolerance is. I started with one pill once daily, and it worked well. Then, I upped it to two pills and I got kinda jumpy and my pulse raced a bit. I stayed with 2 and have been able to tolerate it, but I can't take more than the two pills once a day. I have lost 13 pounds and 8 inches. I think it has worked, but like everyone says, exercising with the pill is a must. I used to take Phentermine, and the effects would last me over 24 hours and I had such a problem with insomnia. With HH I haven't had that issue as long as I avoid taking it before bed.

Although sceptical about many products touting themselves as fat burners, this product did deliver. The main thing you need to do is educate yourself and READ the label for proper use. Minimum 6-8 weeks and a PROPER diet and exercise plan. It's not a magic pill that people are desperate for. You do need to put forth the effort. For me it was worth it, and I dropped 25 lbs. after 10 wks. Just my two cents.

LOSING WEIGHT FAST AND LOVING IT!!!!!April 30, 2008
Reviewer: Jimmy from Detroit, Michigan
Well its been exactly 15 days since I've started this product. And its exactly what I needed to jump start my weight loss. I wrote a review 2 weeks earlier. I have lost over 15 pounds. And most of it has come off my stomach, thighs, and butt. It works great! Started with a much smaller dosage than recommended. I tried taking 2 pills two times in one day and got very sick. My blood pressure and heart beat went up dramatically. I almost called 911. Be careful using this product. Find out your tolerance first. I would recommend not just taking 1 pill a day for a couple of days till your body adjust. You cannot rush weight loss. The full dose would probably give me a heart attack. This is how I've dropped major weight. Take a pill right when I wake up. Eat my breakfast. Wait about an hour and half. Pop a second pill. Wait 30 minutes and then start my cardio work out. You have to do cardio or the pill is not very effective. I was lifting weights the first week and lost small amounts of weight. Now, I jog at 5mph for about 45-60 minutes. And the weight is just flying off!!! You got to eat right. No fast food, no fatty foods. Try to cut back on the salt also. Salt makes you retain water, and you might feel bloated while on HH. Just a sensible diet. Nothing extreme. I still eat fine. Just cut down on the calorie intake a little bit. HH does supress your appetite which has helped me greatly. I used to eat way too much at night. At about 3-4 pm I pop the 3rd pill and then might lift some weights if I feel like it. Boy this product has really started to change my body. You must drink plenty of water while on it! I drink almost a gallon of ice water a day! Just remember, HH is not a miracle pill. You got to exercise while using the product and give it some time. I'll repost in another 2-3 weeks. Good luck everyone! Remember, you can reach your weight loss goals if you try hard. Never stop trying!
Very PleasedApril 22, 2008
Reviewer: Matt from Maryland
I have been taking HH for around a year and a half now so I can probably tell you anything you need to know about it.
You must eat when you take it or your stomach will get upset. I never personally got any headaches or nausea. It gives so much energy it is amazing. The recommended dosage is 3 pills 2x a day; this is way too much! I only take 2 pills 30 mins. to an hour before I lift and it works perfectly. i lift and run 5 days a week; I am 5'6 and used to be 175 and now I'm about 150 and feel great. This product really gives you so much energy to influence you to work harder at the gym and you will see the results.
Some negatives: It really helps with appetite and energy, but when I don't take it, I feel like it is very hard for me to control this appetite and I sometime binge eat. Sometimes if I go to the gym and I haven't taken HH I feel less motivated, I'm not sure if this mental or not.
1 question. I am in college, and I have noticed that if i drink (alcohol) on a day i take HH,i break out in rashes and feel extremely hot (in temperature). Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Hydroxycut Hardcore works but with some effects for meApril 21, 2008
Reviewer: Hoogenband from California
Well I started on Hydroxycut Hardcore three weeks ago, initially on one pill a day for about 3-4 days and then moving to 2 pills and in the third week to about three pills. This is usually in the morning, and when i started 2 pills i used it just before workout in the evening.
The results were good.. went from 175lbs to 160lbs that is a lot.. :) happy about that.. since i could see noticeable difference in my stomach region.. So it does work..
Now the sideffects.. i told myself i would stop if any side effect pops up.. the pill definately did not affect my appetite.. nor did deprive me of sleep. I stopped after the third week because i got these incredible amount of burping.. like every minute.. that was it for me.. did some research on the net and found out that some people with too much caffeine intake could end up burping. stopping it definately helped.
So the next time i might go and get myself something caffeine free. My friend has been trying it, and he says he doesn't have a problem.. his fat % has gone from 17 to 12% and now he has got back his 6 packs.. so I would mostly do this again.. best thing take some protein shakes along with this.. probaly u get better results.. Will let you guys know if it works out for me and i get my 6 packs..

Reviewer: Mark from guelph, canada
I've been doing a 12 week fitness challenge with work and am on week 7 with some results but not as much as I had hoped for. Im 6'4. 243 but Im not concerned with losing weight as much as I wanted to tone up. I looked to HH to speed things along so today I started and took 2 pills about 30 mins after eating and 45 mins before workout.
I've been stuck at 244 for 10 days now but even after eating a big breakfast this morning and no #2 after (not to be too graphic- but)and I stepped on the scale before my workout and I was down to 243 and am still at that tonight.
I've never had energy like that for a workout before. I've been doing alot of rowing and normally I do 5000m on there in about 26/27 mins but today I didnt take 1 break (vs regular 2) and was done in 21.30
I had to work right after that and I wasnt intending on the side effects to be so apparent but I was jittery and somewhat lightheaded.
I think I'll do it for 3 weeks and see how it goes- I dont see myself being able to ever push it to 3 pills 2x a day.. I think I'd feel like I was going to die.

Reviewer: Jimmy from Detroit, Michigan
I have been working out for the last six weeks before even trying HH. I am 6'2 and about 230 pounds. My previous weight three years ago was 185. Looked really good at that weight. Used to be able to drop weight quickly and pretty easy just working out hard 5 days a week. I am 28 years old right now. Guess my metabolism has slowed down. I lift weights and jog monday, wednesday, and friday. On tuesday, and thursday I hit the punching bag for about 45 minutes with ab work. Been losing weight, but its been really slow. And its been tough reducing my belly. Started HH two days ago. Followed the instructions. It is making me a bit jittery and hyper. Feels like I am constantly buzzed. My workouts have improved greatly. And have already lost 4 pounds. Its early so I won't know the full results yet. But, I am really excited about this product. Let you know full results in about 3 or 4 weeks.

Mixed ReveiwsApril 15, 2008
Reviewer: 32 Year old guy from Kingsbay, GA
For this product I have seen many results good and bad. After reading what all the chemicals actually do, it explained my reaction to it. I am a 32 year old male, 220lbs in the beginning, 210lbs after 30 days of working out and this stuff. I work out 5-6 days a week. For me, I took two pills 30-60 min prior to w/o. I have to eat something small with it to keep my stomach settled. I warm up 15 min on a treadmill then lift for 1-3 hours. This product did increase my energy for the duration of my w/o. But, you MUST DRINK ALOT OF WATER! I have always had a belly no matter how much I run, this has helped to cure that problem, I still have a little of that annoying belly fat but I am hoping that another month will complete the task. I have noticed more definition and size, part of that I have to give credit to the protien (syntha-6). I have lost 10 pounds and feel better throughout the day and have more energy. Other reveiws are correct in saying you will be nervous at rest or if you have nothing to do, thus the reason I only take it before my workout. If I take the full dose, my chest hurts also and feels like my heart will explode. I have noticed improved memory, some of my forgetfulness has gone. I can recall directions and task much better now. Cycling of this stuff is a rough task, drink alot of coffee to help off set the headaches you are going to get. Overall I think it has been a good product for me if I don't over do it.

I'm 22, weigh 72kgs, 185cm tall. have been working as a labourer for 2 months, have been taking creatine and protein, as well as q10. have experienced wonderful results, however my stomach still was not as ripped as i wanted. i have been taking Hydroxycut hardcore for just over a week now. i eat 5 meals a day, granted sometimes its a force feed now, and at least two doses of protein and creatine, depending on how hard work has been. the focus i get with hh, as well as the energy makes heavy work much more enjoyable. the caffeine was a bit of a shock as i quickly moved up to the 3x2 dose, going over this has resulted in fatigue the next day. i'm impressed with this product, visually, i have noticed ab definition developing. as i don't really have weight i want to lose, as i'm also currently putting on muscle i don't intend to use this product for an extended period, however 3 week treatments every 2-3 months should be sufficient. i eat well, except for at night, very unhealthily, ice cream etc. my opinion, if you are motivated to exercised hard, and you take this product you will lose weight, quickly.
Quick FixApril 13, 2008
Reviewer: Rocko from Langley, BC
HH is a great product. I've used it in 2 ways due to sheer laziness and quite the lack of will. For the first month, I worked out on HH and used the recomended dose (3pills 2x per day) and lost 10 lbs in a week, so i cut it down to 2 pills 2x per day and have been steadily losing about 2-3 lbs per week since. On month 2 I quit going to the gym and ate like crap. I STILL lose 1-2 lbs per week. I dont care if it aint right, I'm lazy as hell.

Question about HHApril 10, 2008
Reviewer: J from chi-town
I'm a 19 year old male, 5"11 and I weigh roughly 170 pounds. I workout 6 days a week, upper body monday, wednesday, and friday, and then lower body tuesday, thursday, and saturday. I run almost everyday and do about 30 minutes of cardio. I also take protein, but thats it. I am gaining muscle, and have gotten bigger, but I want to get toned, especially in my stomach. Will HH help me gain muscle, and tone myself, or will I just lose it? I am considering trying HH so I will post again when I hopefullysee results.
Great resultsApril 09, 2008
Reviewer: Anonymous from Whitby, Ontario
It's amaxing, I got great results!!!!I started using it last months. It's been probably 5 weeks now. It's not cheap, I use 3 pills first thing in the morning 30 min before breakfast, then 3 pills before my workout. If I dont workout, I take 3 pills b4 lunch. Plus CLA Tonalin twice a day and one multivitamin. I lost more than 10 lb. I have a lot of energy, when I workout (3 times a week) I perform better. I show more defined muscles, and feel great...love it! Oh...one thing, I'm getting headaches more often and I have to eat every 3 hours, small snucks between meals, otherwise my stomach hurts. Plus...one advice to everyone, try to eat often, high protein, low carbs food, drink a lot of water even if you dont feel like it.

Reviewer: Amanda from st. louis, MO
ive been taking HH for a week now. i dont take the recommended dosage. i think that would kill me because one pill gives me lots of energy. im 5'4 122 lbs. i take one pill in the morning and one in the afternoon. ive noticed that i can workout much longer before i get tired. also my appetite has decreased lots. im a big eater and now i eat three small meals a day. my problem area is my stomach and im basically taknig hh to try to get rid of a layer of fat that hasnt budged since i started exercising 9 months ago. i already notice my stomach feeling tighter. hopefully it keeps working and doesnt make me keal over or anything.

Reviewer: Mon from va
Well I'm 26 years old 5'7 about 183 I started working out about three years ago( four to five times a week over a hour of weight trianing and 40 mins of cardio) where I started off weighting 220, but over the last seven months or so I have hit a wall I can't seem to get pass that stomach fat. So I begin to take hh the first day of taking one pill twice a day (one 6am then 3.30pm right before I workout) the first day I felt a little funny and space out but after that I was fine. I use to run three miles and get tired now I can run 5 miles and still have enegry. When I moved up to two pills a day the same thing happen the first day I was kind of space out but now I'm fine. In two weeks my stomach has seem to already shrunk fromm visually looking n a mirror and now I have abs starting to stick out, even this morning I put on a pair of pants that would fit good but now they won't stay up so I proably have lost like a inch and a half n my waist I don't weight myself anymore cause wight lost is not my goal pretty much toning and getting cut long as it looks good I could care less about the weight. Just remeber to drank plenty of water and u should be fine.

Going to buy another bottleApril 02, 2008
Reviewer: Tanya from Utica NY
I have decided the best way to take the pills is 2 around 8am, 2 30min. before lunch, and 2 either 30min. before I go to the gym or eat dinner. The side affects have worn off and even when I forget to take the pills or dont have them with me my hunger is not the same. I don't have to eat much to feel satisfied, I think that is what has helped the most. I will keep you posted till the wedding to let you know how happy I am with my results.
Hydroxycut HardcoreApril 02, 2008
Reviewer: Amanda from NZ
I definitely notcied fat loss within the first couple of days, especially around my stomach. I found if you don't exercise while taking them you get really restless and kinda agitated. I experienced some stomach pains and headaches at first. But altogether they're pretty good, they definitely keep the fat off. The key is exercise. You'll feel better and you'll get faster results.

Reviewer: Ryan from MO
It makes me want to go freakin' nuts, but I love it. Dosage is two pills twice daily; the individual at GNC advised me to keep with it throughout an entire cycle. He said that the three pills twice daily is a little much for most people. I would agree because when I took the first two pills, I felt like I needed to run 100 miles to lose my new found energy. I can feel the fat melting off.

Reviewer: Becky from Indiana, USA
I have been taking Hydroxycut Hardcore for almost 2 weeks now. I started my period and was bleeding excessivly. Enough for the Doctor to tell me to go to the ER. Come to find out, Hydroxycut has an ingredient in it that is similar to aspirin and it thins your blood causing you to bleed more. The ER doctor was quite surprised at this as was I. I will still take the Hydroxycut as it is really helping but I now know to take a break around period time.
GOOD FOR SOME - NOT FOR OTHERS . . .March 27, 2008
Reviewer: Fifty, Female and Built from Grove City, Ohio
In response to "Justin from Manalapan" as well as my opinion and findings of HH - Just like anything else you take or do, including exercise routines, you must introduce HH to your body SLOWLY. If you are ignorant about products and dump a mouthful (or double up) looking for a quick fix or miracle, anything assuredly will be DANGEROUS! I found it just fine and extremely HELPFUL to shrink belly, butt and thigh fat while light working out at least a few times a week, and eating small, normal meals. I think it is great for a helper.

Reviewer: Toinn from Cincinnati, Ohio
i must say it works... but just like any other supplement you have to eat right and exercise... i worked out daily and i went from 200 to 163 in 6 months. i ate healthy... i didnt really diet but i ate healthy. if u wake up and take it u will take a dump within the first 15 mins... so dont plan nothing for at least 30 mins afterwards and you will get a lil gittery if u dont take it with food or take it and not work out. but if u dont abuse the product it wont abuse you... i was taking 4 a day.. i never bumped up to 6. and it worked just fine. if you are serious about losing the weight then i recommend it. cause it will give u the energy to work out. and i had no trouble sleeping afterwards. probably cause i didnt take it right before i went to bed.. thats just retarted

Reviewer: Chris from Killeen, TX
I've been on HH for 2 months now, combined with MuscleMilk and NaNO Vapor. I have far more energy and my mind is much more alert throughout the day. I've been taking 3 x 2 and have had few problems. The problems I have had occurred while doing something stupid (i.e. 4 pills x 2 a day - caffeine overload; taking within 4 hours of bedtime - trouble sleeping). I am also cautious not to take it within a couple of hours before a long run or intense cardio workout (some paranoid fear of my heart exploding). So as long as you follow the directions on the bottle, eat, and workout like you're supposed to, you should have no problems. I have dropped from 13% body fat to about 9% and look/feel great. I suggest you actually workout a lot while you take this product and should not view it as a lazy man's miracle drug. Good Luck!
Use at own Risk!March 15, 2008
Reviewer: James from St. Paul, MN
Be cautious...It is an extreme fat loss product, you must be determined and focused and your body must be able to sustain the side effects. Personally I enjoy using the product and have lost 12 lbs. in 3 weeks. Drink tons of water and work out extremely hard at the gym so you are able to sleep at night because if not you will be able to stay awake for 24 hrs if not more....Good luck
second reviewMarch 14, 2008
Reviewer: Some guy from canada from Canada
i am on day 28 of HH, my workout kinda slowed for a bit in the past 2 weeks and my eating habits also fell just a bit, i was only drinking protein shakes 2-3 times a day depends if i work or not, and i would have some fast food liek a burger. but i am geting back in the habit, my slight fall didnt effect it at all. but i am back on my routine, with the occasional meal(just 1) if i get hungry i eat some fruit or a small meal. I also am now taking a sport multivitamin and instead of the regular, and i took creatine out of my deit and replaced it with nitrix. i also started doing an ab workout. once a week. but an intense one. i looked in the mirror and i noticed that my gut has faded alot i still have some work to do i am more toned now also. i went to the gym for the first time yesterday, and i am going to start working out at the gym as well as at home.i was at 208 and i am now at 195. and i still have more time to go, they say 3 months is when u start to notice actual changes, so 1 month down 2 to go. no side effects, i take 3 pills 2 times a day, 7am HH, 8am nitrix 9am protein shake and multi vitamin. 1130am i take my 2nd HH and at 1130 i take my second nitrix serving, and a protein shake after i workoutif i work out. if i dont then i take hh at 2pm and nitrix at 3. and my protein shake at lunch time. dinner time i take my 3rd protein shake( i take them at work now) and i also take my 3rd serving of nitrix and a sport multivitamin. diet is crucial so islotsof water. i dont drink pop or juice just water, i do cardio first so i am tired then i workout out my muscles, so they get a better workout, the day after i am always sore. so i rest until there is no more pain but i do do cardio the day after even if i am sore, if your sore then rest the next day you need time fro ur muscles to rebuild and drink lots of protein so your muscles can rebuild faster more muscl= more calories being burned.
Not taking full dosageMarch 13, 2008
Reviewer: Tanya from Utica, NY
I ended up taking the full dosage of 3 pills once. An hour after taking the pill I left work and felt nauseaus, my leg was shaking, and I just felt overwhelmed, and had a hard time concentrating on driving. Since then I have only been taking 2 pills 2x a day and I feel fine. I think it was too much too quick. I drink plenty of water through out the day, about 5 20oz. bottles of water during the day to help keep myself feeling fuller. I actually had a friend yesterday say not for nothing but you do look a little slimmer. I dont feel as if I have lost enough to notice but I feel better about myself.

its the end of my 2nd day on HH...so heres my story, (im 5'11)last year during the winter i was 165, then consistently gained weight and over the february vacation i peaked at 200lbs....
now tennis season is starting (btw im 17 turning 18 in may) and tomrrow im starting my 2pills 2x a day routine and probably carry that out for the rest of my 120 pill bottle.
b4 i started taking HH i was 191.5, and now im 188.5, but im not sure if its from the minimal i get from tennis (im not sure how much im getting) or from the HH....
can anyone tell me if i should be running or doing other excercise besides tennis to improve the results of HH...??
also in addition to the lots of water and a daily multivitamin, what else should i be doing in my diet???

Good ProductMarch 12, 2008
Reviewer: Thunderchunk from KS
This was a great product to start things off with. Like many I heard about HC from GNC, it was pricey (you can find it online for a heck of alot cheaper). I took the recomended dose and mixed that with Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and a 3 hour work out session 4 times a week. In a month I've lost about 6 lbs but have gain massive mussle, and toned out alot. Before I weighed about 250/252 now im at 244. It doesnt seem like much weight but like I said above, i've gained alot of mussle and deffinition. I have a slow metabolism and HC definitly helped speed that up so I could actually loose the fat.

Reviewer: Keith from Columbus, Ohio
I have been taking HH for a little over a week now starting out with 1 pill 3x a day. My appetite is gone but keep in mind you need to eat little things through out the day. Since day one i have had small tention headaches due to the caffeine but its nothing someone can't handle. Snack on stuff like beef jerky to keep your sugar up from not eating that much. I work in IT and sit in a cubicle all day and when i moved up to taking 2 pills at a time i don't get this rush everyone talks about. I get more or a rush drinking monster energy drinks. I am not irritable at all and i'm not even a coffee drinker. I can feel the pills working in my stomach, like there buring fat as i sit. The only time i really feel these pills is when i work out. I am able to run a lot longer and work out harder and after my work out im still not ready to leave the gym.
Mon - chest shoulders and traps. cardio 20min
Tues - biceps and legs. cardio 20 min
wed - chest and triceps. cardio 20 min
thursday is back to monday and i work out 6 days a week.
My breathing is better and i am able to work out a lot longer with out getting tired. My flaws on the product are simple. I get slight blurry vision at times. Headaches, and it makes me concentrate so much i feel like im in a trance and not even at work. You will not get extra pumps or anything. I was on NO explode, cell mass and nitrox and bulked up for 6 months and am using this now with out any other supplements and my pump for that last lift is gone but over all i feel like im losing weight but its hard to tell because i drink a ton of water a day. In the mornings i feel very skinny like the pill is working, but after working out, drinking a ton of water and my 2 whey protetion shakes at night i feel bloated and cant tell the results. I will give this product a few more weeks but over all im really not that impressed.

READ THISMarch 05, 2008
Reviewer: Healthnaut from Louisville, KY
I am a hydroxycut Hardcore user. I thought i would share a few things with you.
1. HC should be taken along with a daily multi-vitamin. HC causes the body to work harder which in turn requires more vitamins. Vitamin deficiency can cause shaking, nausea, and headaches.
2. Drinking lots of water is required. HC recommends 80 oz a day, but I would suggest more. Water is vital to keep you hydrated while you system is working harder and to flush you system regularly.
3. The amount of caffeine in HC's recommended dosage exceeds the amount of caffeine one's body should have. It is best for you to shorten the dosage until you have enough time to let your body adapt to the high amount of caffeine. I personally take one HC pill a day and still see great results. It takes a little more time but its a safe play. Besides it will turn your 120 pill bottle from a months supply to 4 months.

i say take it for your self and try it. Im not sure im going to continue on the product i am 19 years old and want to cut weight. I am 6'3 and when i began this product 5 days ago i was 304 i am now down to 285" too much weight all at once i feel like crap. It gives me a boost enough to work out but there are many side effects i drink about a gallon and a half of water a day and it helps with the nausioua. i have also experienced the rash which goes away and the shortness of breathe. Its a great product just not for me. Make sure to follow the directions and work out i did this by working out 3 hours a day and going on a diet of pure protein and such 5-7times a day.
one bad experience i had was that i was in a club and almost threw up because it makes your body too hot..
not good for people my age? possibly? but 20 pounds in five days is not a good thing at all.

Reviewer: Esteban Gillmor from Orem, UT USA
I'm loven the energy I get from this stuff. I drink alot of water and exercise pretty regular. To be honest, I only bought the stuff because they guy at GNC said it was cool. This is day two and I forgot to read warnings about when to take it. I don't think I'm going to sleep tonight, thank god for 24 hour gold's gym. I've noticed more definition in my forearms and my fat is more jiggly. I'm a strong S.O.B. and if this stuff keeps taken off the excess then i'll be looken good pretty soon. Woot!
Working after three days...Kind of.February 29, 2008
Reviewer: STLtrm from St. Louis, MO USA
This stuff works, 5 lbs. in three days and only one of those days at the gym. Good products so far but the caffine is alot to handle. I don't drink any caffinated drinks so taking this is like being on speed. Helps me get through the day, a little anxiety but I can handle it. Was able to almost double my productivity at the gym. The only problem I saw on day two though is that I could feel my heart beating through my chest for a little while and started coughing up some blood! Now I don't know if thats from the HH or something else so I will continue to use it, but if that happens again after taking a pill i will definently let you all know. But so far so good...

you get headacke which is annoying, and you feel sick sometime, other than that its all cool
Here's the DEAL...February 26, 2008
Reviewer: JD from USA
Alright here's the deal with HH. Number 1- this is a great product for two things. One "cutting up" and two "Losing excess Fat". The one real focus that I would to stress is that if your looking to get big and muscular this really isnt the best product for that. This has alot of caffine in it which keeps your heart pumping harder through out the day. Caffine is catobolic, which means that, if needed, your body will use and breakdown your existing muscle for energy. I took this stuff and it def made me loose excess fat but hindered me from gaining potentially more muscle. All in all, great product for people who are loosing weight or "cut up". Again, Its alot of caff. so make sure you dont have any bad heart condition. Best of Luck to you guys/girls JD- Bronx, NY

I also have not had any wierd side effects accept for being a little more irritable, but not bad.
1 Week Follow-upFebruary 24, 2008
Reviewer: CollegeKid from USA
SO its been 1 week since I started HH.
Pros: increased bursts of energy, makes me feel like working out, cleaning my room, something else but sitting around. A few people have said I look thinner; maybe lost a pound but stomach fat does feel "looser" and not as thick.
Cons: Jitterry sometimes; slight headaches occassionally; sometimes upset stomach.
Overall after 1 Week: so far so good, looking forward to this week when I up the dosage to 2 pills 3x day, this may help me have more noticeable results. Will post again in 1 week.
P.S. I see a problem in the 2 pills 3x day requirement, b/c if I dont wake up until 10am, then I have to wait 4-5 hrs b/f take the next 2 pills, and its already 6 or 7pm b/f I'm supposed take the last 2 pills, and you're not supposed take them within 5 or 6 hrs of sleep? There's a dilemmna here.

I love HHFebruary 17, 2008
Reviewer: Mommy of 3 from Oklahoma USA
I am a mom of 3 and I have tried to loose my baby weight forever. I have done everything short of a prescription weight loss suplement. I decided to give this a try. I started a week after christmas. The guy in the GNC store told me to take it once a day instead of twice. I tried both and he was right taking it once got me results, but I could still sleep some at night. I love HH because I feel awake, but I don't have the jitters or any of the other side effects I used to get when I took Hydroxycut before. I have been taking this 7 weeks. I have lost about 25lbs. When I did loose a little weight in the past I could never loose it in my stomach and I am pleased to say I have lost 4 inches there. WOW. I say give it a try you will never know if it is going to work if you don't try it.

Day 1: 1-month until spring break!February 16, 2008
Reviewer: CollegeKid from USA
So Spring break starts in 1-month for me (college student) and we are heading to Panama City Beach. I'm 5'11 215, muscular but not cut, workout 4-5 days a week, in above-avg. shape and active. Bought (1) 120 capsule bottle to help get me "cut" b/f I go to PCB and woo the ladies! But seriously, I will update once a week, prob. on Sundays, and let you know my progress, likes and dislikes, etc.
P.S. Just so everyone knows, I already workout hard 4 or 5 days/wk and eat decent (like 2500-3500) calories a day, too much beer probably, no fried foods. I'm not going to change much otherwise, just add HH and see what happens. See you in a week.

Works well.. but..February 13, 2008
Reviewer: GypsyLatrell from Orlando, FL
So I started taking this 3 weeks ago. Started right off taking 2 pills three times a day.
After a few days, I started feeling the side effects: dizzy, nautious, headaches, anxiety and extreme sleepyness and irritability.
I work out daily, riding 5 miles a day on my bike, and maybe I just need to drink more water?
Anyway, I have WAY less of an appetite, in fact I have to force myself to eat. In the later part of the evening, after dinner, I feel sickly bloated, like my blood pressure has gone up, with jitteryness, so I take my last two pills between 5 and 6pm.

What I thinkFebruary 11, 2008
Reviewer: User from Raleigh, NC USA
I use Hydroxycut Hardcore but not the recommended dosage. I find that if you take even two pills at once that it can make you jittery! I only take one 20 minutes before my workout and it works great! It gives me that little boost of energy that I am looking for. I do not take it as a dietary supplement, but more as an energy lift. I work all day and love to run and workout, so after work it lifts me up just long enough for my workout and then it goes away in time for me to rest for the night.
itching and iritabilityFebruary 09, 2008
Reviewer: Sally from Yorba Linda CA USA
I also have itching and iritability using HH for one week now. I am not fond of the way I feel so I am doing some research on the net to find out what I am actually taking. Ink, shellac: aren't these toxic substances?
Questionable? You decide.February 07, 2008
Reviewer: Matt from Ohio
I'm almost 21 years old and a college student. I decided i'd try some HH, being 270 lbs (6'0"), and that none of the exercising or diets I'd tried before seemed to work. Before starting I'd already been going to the Rec(gym) for 3-4 weeks with little improvement.
So 3 days ago I visted GNC and asked the lady working what she thought, and she asked what I had heard or read-up on. I mentioned HH and she explained that it works, if I could handle caffeine. I can easily put away 5 cups of coffee in a day, not cause I need the caffeine, but because I like the taste (and I do NOT do that that often). So I bought the smaller bottle and after getting back to the dorm I took my first pill.
I couldn't stop moving. I was continuously drumming on the desk, or typing, or playing guitar, or walking around. I had alot of energy. After about 2 hours I calmed down, went to the Rec and worked out (I lifted for about an hour, Ran for 20 minutes, and hit the bag for 10 mins).
I had trouble sleeping that night, but we survived.
The next day I didn't really get that "rush" of energy, but I did the same work out (more running and less hitting the bag). I came down hard that night though. I almost fell asleep at the dinner table, but I hadn't eaten alot so I was exhausted.
As of yesterday I was down about 10 pounds, but I think alot of it has to do with just cutting what you're eating and getting a good work out. I drink a ton of water throughout the day which curbs my hunger, and when I do eat it's salad, fruit, chicken, vegetables. I take a multivitamin when I do take it.
I haven't experienced the red poo (yet, but, we'll hope to avoid it), but my pants are a little more loose (the change i've seen is in my stomach mostly), and my roommate says my chin (the whole waddle thing) reduced. So, I think it's really something you have to try for yourself. GNC will refund it for you if you only take a few. Try it out though.

anxietyJanuary 26, 2008
Reviewer: Valerie from hawaii
I also just started on Hydroxycut Hardcore. I started on 2 pills twice a day yesterday and noticed a significant amount of anxiety. My heart does not thump the way the caffeine pills used to cause it to do, but I have noticed that I get that tired feeling that I would get from too much caffeine. I am extreamly irritable with people, more than usual. I normally drink 2 cups of coffee a day, but will cut back tomorrow to 1 cup and see how it goes. I do not have any trouble sleeping. Energy is the same. I go to the gym 4 to 5 x's week work mostly cardio. Used Isagenix for 30 days before Christmas and lost 25# but gained 8 back since then.

Allergy Alert - HivesJanuary 21, 2008
Reviewer: Stephanie from Washington, DC
Read the ingredients carefully. On the bottle one of the last ingredients is ink. Some inks contain nickel and nickel is one of the most common metal allergies. I tried the Hydroxy Hardcore with only one pill a day 30 mins before my workout. The day after I started it I got hives on my neck and it was bright red. It has been a week and with the help of Benadryl cream it is starting to disappear. I was only able to take it for 2 or 3 days before I discontinued use. BE CAREFUL! And I would prefer not to give this product any starts, but that was not an option.
Really worksJanuary 20, 2008
Reviewer: Nick Mandiola from Florida
I started taking Hydroxycut Hardcore when it first came out and the first thing I noticed was the energy. That was great because I use to be a server and energy is something you needed.
I went to the gym to work out about 4-5 days a week and I was sluggish on my cardio but after about 8 weeks, I lost 5% body fat. That was about 2 years ago and my gym routine has improved (along with my cardio) I'm going to try hydroxycut again and see if the results are any better.
Bottom line- If you work out and eat ok (i was also sluggish with my diet), you'll lose a considerable amount of body fat.

Measure yourself, not just weigh inJanuary 16, 2008
Reviewer: Michiganrob from Michigan
so most of the reviews speak of losing weight like crazy. I am not one of those people after 4 wks.... However, I still am giving the product 4/5. Why is that? This products does give you more engery in and out of the gym. This product enabled me to stay focused at the gym and see strong results in my muscles. This leads me to the point I make in the title -- measure your self in the critical areas and continue to do so weekly and you will probably see what I did -- growth in my chest, shoulders, and arms; shrinking waist line. Obviously, the growth of muscle out weighs fat, therefore my weight on the scale looks minimal but the results of the body look great!!!!!! DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND CYCLE THE PRODUCT AS MANY SUGGEST.

i just started taking this product maybe a week ago and i am a female trying to lose the last of that pregnancy weight. Before this pill i was always so tired running after my twin girls but now after maybe 20 minutes of taking the pill i get a boost of energy where i can finish up all my errands for the day along with working out for and hour and a half and still have energy the only downfall for me is i get a little dizzy and naseauted that i have to lie down for a little bit i also only take two pills in the morn and one in the evening anything more then that my body can't handle. But I have lost 5 lbs so far so if you can handle the side effects then try this out cause it does work

Worth the WaitJanuary 14, 2008
Reviewer: Laura from Brooklyn, NY
Hi, I'm a 20 year old female and have been using Hydroxy Hardcore for about 3 years. When I first used the product, I was kind of scared because it would turn my poop red, but I realized it was the coloring in the product after a couple weeks of using it, the coloring stopped. I'm very pleased with Hydroxycut Hardcore because it regulated my system, curbed my diet tremendously and has reduced a lot of my body fat. After about a year and a half of using this product, I cut down the dosages to a half, and recieved the same weight loss results. Honestly, it took a few months to see rapid weight loss, but after that period its worth the wait.
Tips for taking.January 14, 2008
Reviewer: Justin from Georgia
I'm a 5'6" male, 155 lbs. I have taken two cycles. One in the summer and one this past winter.
Diet and exercise will show you the best results. However, even though the drug causes you to be less hungry, you should still try to eat something at least 2-4 hours before a workout to prevent fatigue and headaches. I recommend high fiber foods and fruits/vegetables. What I usually do is take it in the morning with breakfast, just so I have some energy throughout the day. Then in the afternoon I take it before a workout. I recommend LOTS OF WATER and NO CAFFEINE BEVERAGES(as the label reads). Throwing up from it is just from not eating anything or working your muscles into drastic fatigue. This is your body signaling that you need to take in more fuel before a workout.
I was 180 lbs before taking. The first cycle caused a 12 lb. decrease and the second caused an 8 lb. decrease. This is not taking into account the muscle gain I added while lifting weights on the product.....so I most likely lost more.
Off to a great start- FemaleJanuary 14, 2008
Reviewer: EXCITED TO WEAR A BIKINI from Portland, OR
I started taking HH after the Holidays. I did exactly what it says on the label, but i do recommend women to only take up to 2 pills in the morning 2 pills before dinner or working out. I think 3 is just too much for our bodies to handle. I feel really jittery in the morning, but when i take it before i work out i feel great. I do interval training on the treadmill, and then a intense ab work out everyday except for the weekends. X2 a week i will do weight training. I have lost a total of 3 pounds, but i can tell that i have gained muscle, and lost fat. Keep in mind muscle weighs more than fat. So if you haven't lost as much weight as you like, you may be replacing fat with muscle. Keep up with eating healthy and DRINK LOTS OF WATER. :-) Good luck everyone.

Works But....December 21, 2007
Reviewer: Ken M from South Carolina
I'm a 45 year old male in decent shape but having trouble keeping weight off even though I exercise regularly. 30 mins a day of cardio followed by at least an hour lifting weights at least 3 days a week (sometimes 4). As I age my metabolism is apparently slowing. So, I figured I'd give this a try... it works, the first week I dropped 7 pounds, though I think a lot of it was water weight, but the water weight wasn't coming off before soooo.
BUT... I am experiencing some of the side effects... slight constant headache... feel like my head is in a fog and having trouble consentrating, slight stomach ache... but that is because it makes me feel full/bloated so I eat less, and lastly yes slightly jittery... I wouldn't call it more energy, just jittery. Drinking large amounts of water DOES help. I don't plan on staying on very long... just long enough to assist in getting some pounds off (13 more)

Oh and AM/PM consists of 6 pills a day. 2 before every meal!
Read This and DecideDecember 19, 2007
Reviewer: Don from New York, USA
Fat burners I have tried before: TrimSpa, JetFuel, Lipo 6 (classic), Ripped Fuel Extreme to get off fat. Then used ThermoGain and ThermoShred to get the cuts and the 6pack.
The X-factor in HH? I used a bottle over 1 month with suggested dose, it lost me so much weight/fat with exercise and diet that it was almost SCARY!!
How is in the hell without jitters, strange feelings, and excessive energy does it work?
I have decided not to take it again and just stick to the regular stuff like Ripped Fuel or Lipo 6 at the most to get a 6 pack back. And Yes,
I read this forum b4 I bought it. SOmeone did mention that he/she puked. Happened to me once, when I took the dose, did my morning cardio and drank a glass of cold water. If you have any health issues, consult your doctor (most doctors would not recommend something they dont understand). You be the judge.
I think it doesnt work well on women (i am a dude).
Any Advice for work outs?December 19, 2007

I have not started using Hydroxycut hardcore yet. I'm waiting for the new year to begin (New Years Resolution) before I start taking the pills. I have used other fat burners previously (Biotgenetix) It worked as far as strenghth and mass but did nothing with burning fat! So I decided I'd try HH. I was just curious if anyone has any good work out routines they found to work while using Hydroxycut. I'm 5' 10" 190 and am trying to tone up as much as I can. I just dont have a clue how to do it. So any advice would be awesome. THanks

I just started HH today. I took 1 pill this morning with my breakfast along with a womans multi vitamin. I also plan to take 1 at lunch. I am not really feeling anything right now, maybe a little jittery. But I used to drink so much caffeine. I also have went and got a bunch of new food, such as fruits, fat free 100 calorie yogurt, some turkey from the deli, special K cereal for the morning, and healthy snacks, along with some lean cuisins.The woman who sold me the pills said that HH drains all the nutrients out of your body so you need to take a multi vitamin. I am 18 years old. A college student, I weigh 135 lbs, I am really looking to cut down about 15-20 lbs. I have never tried this before. I was working about everyday for an hour not taking any pills and I only saw about 4 or 5 pounds of results in about an 8week time period. My mom is in such good shape she is 39 years old, and has the body of a super modle!!! I'm not kidding... She teaches kick boxing classes, and high speed aerobics. She is so toned it is not even funny. She was a little upset when I told her I bought this, but everyone I meet says "YES! IT WORKS, YOU JUST HAVE TO USE IT RIGHT AND EXERCISE AND EAT RIGHT" I am just really scared because some people have told me it can stop your heart. I am just scared I guess that this is going to mess with me. Can anyone help me with this, and just let me know some more things about this pill. Thanks...

Hydroxycut HardcoreDecember 05, 2007
Reviewer: Kathleen R. from Boston, Ma
I've been using Hydroxycut Hardcore for 3 days now and so far I have already lost 4 pounds. I am starting out slow, as the labels on the bottle recommend. However, being stupid, I have not been following the "water" directions. My whole life I've always drank a lot of water, but now I feel dehydrated. Today I started to drink, twice as much water and I'm starting to feel better. I work out regularly, but I haven't had a chance to workout yet this week, so I don't know the effects of the pill when I'm working out. I definetly feel a lot more energy and I have almost no appetite anymore (but that's not so bad, since I have about 70 more pounds to go!). I will have my first workout with the pill this Friday and will report back with results. biggest advice to newcommers: JUST DRINK WATER!!!

I started taking HH on Oct 25 (last month), I weighted 206lbs. Im deployed to Iraq at the moment, so since my wife and kids aren't around, I have more than enough time to go to the gym on my time off. I've been taking it as the directions say, I'm down to 183lbs. Thats 23 lbs in a month, insane!!! I only experienced the jitters the first couple of days I started taking it, now I guess my body got used to it, I feel no side effects at all. I tell you what though, if you think its gonna work without doing any exercise, think again!!! I took it for a few months a while back, but never hit the gym. I maybe lost three pounds. I do at least 30 minutes on the eliptical or run 2+ miles five times a week now. Its the only way the pills will work. You have to exercise. Hope this helps.

Works better when u DONT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BOTTLENovember 14, 2007
Reviewer: EXPERIENCED from ny ny
Most people using this product will say, "Yea it was great but it stopped working as well as it did."
YOU HAVE TO CYCLE IT. AS YOU WOULD WITH ANY OTHER TYPE OF ATHLETIC PREFORMANCE ENHANCER.
I use it, my cousin uses it, a lot of people I know use it. IF YOU DONT CYCLE IT, YOU WILL SEE DECREASED PREFORMANCE. (1 day on, 2 days off etc or even one week on, one week off)
You have to drink a ton of water, literally 10 water bottles a day with it. You should take a blood thinner with it although it is not necessary. It is really unnecessary to take 3 at a time unless you are trying to cut weight. 2 at a time is fine. THIS STUFF CAN MAKE U FEEL LIKE UR ON COCAINE. YOU WILL get a ton of energy and I mean cant sit still. You will be able to work out. this stuff is great if ur falling asleep and u still wana work out, give it 10 mins and ull b able to run 5 miles. JUST REMEMBER TO STAY WELL HYDRATED, NO COFFEE, SODA, OR ALCOHOL...NEED TO DRINK WATER. In fact i just took some exactly 15 minutes ago and i can already feel it working.
You have to ween yourself off because if you just stop, all the weight come right back. It is important to EAT FREQUENT BUT IN SMALL PORTIONS. BIG MEALS=FAT ASS...THE SMALLER THE BETTER THE MORE FREQUENT THE BETTER. YOU SHOULD HAVE 6-8 MEALS A DAY EACH CONSITING OF 300-400 CALORIES.
TRUST ME, IT WILL WORK BUT IF YOU FOLLOW THE BOTTLE, YOUR BODY GETS USED TO IT AND AFTER SAY 2 WEEK ON 3 PILLS TWICE DAILY, YOU WONT FEEL THE SAME EFFECTS

I had a baby 6 months ago. Two weeks after the delivery I began a work out routine called P90X. It's exhausting so 2 months later I incorporated Hydroxycut Hardcore. I felt a drive to push myself harder with the program plus my appetite decreased significantly. Although, I do get very nauseous and extremely light headed. So much so that when I stand up I instantly feel like I'm going to black out so I have to stand still for a moment before walking. I also noticed some obvious memory loss and train of thought. I'm looking into Hydroxycut's side effects to see if my memory is linked to my weight loss pill. I took a break from the pill and noticed I didn't have trouble thinking or remembering things so it seems awfully coincidental. However, I love the way I feel when I take it. I call it my "Happy Pill" so despite any memory problems I definitely plan on continuing this product. I've had significant weight loss. Far more then excercise alone! Honestly I stopped working out 2 months ago and have consistently lost weight by taking Hydroxycut. This stuff is powerful and I think the recommended dosage is too much. Do what works for you!
My side effectsNovember 08, 2007
Reviewer: Jeff from Sumter, SC
Been on HH three days. I take one pill first thing in the morning and one at lunch. I've noticed two undesireable side effects: 1) sleeping period is down from 7 to 5 hours a night, 2) heart rate increases rapidly to max recommended during cardio routine. Positive side effects: 1) increased metabolic rate, 2) ability to control food portions. Drinking lots of water throughout the day (6-8 bottles) helps maintain hydration and increased metabolism.
I'm 45 yr old make, 5'10, 240lbs. Will report back with weight loss results in two weeks.
Just started but already feel resultsOctober 30, 2007
Reviewer: Andy from Lawrence, KS USA
I am only in my first week with this product but i have never exercised regularly. Before using this product I felt very lethargic and slept constantly. I am currently in college and 20 years old. I gained a ton of weight last year, but after one week I have lots of energy and regular exercise is a breeze. My appetite has decreased and overall I can already feel the benefits. this product seems to be working well and I am pleased with it so far. The only side effects I can feel is that i seem to be more wired and awake, but that isn't too much of a negative effect.
mood changesOctober 27, 2007
Reviewer: John Nelson from Chicago, IL
I tried HH becuase of a constant curiosity and it was onsale. I found that after following the recomended dosage, my emotional sensitivity increased in a negative way. I found that decreasing the dose down to one a day, two on weekends, my appetite is suppressed (the way I want) and my energy is up. I think it's a good product but listen to your body and adjust your dosage to what you can feel comfortable with.
Have a planOctober 24, 2007
Reviewer: Dan Y from Monterey, CA
I am a 26 year old, 5'9" male, active member of the military. This is day three for me of HH. I weighed in at 201 lbs. on Sunday, and today I am at 192 lbs. (that is 9 lbs. in 3 days) You have to have a plan though, i.e. drink lots of water and watch your food. I am eating nothing but fruit for breakfast and lunch, and for dinner I eat a regular meal that covers protiens, carbs, and milk. I try to keep my intake at less than 1000 calories. Workout is slight (2.5 mile run 2X a week, light weight training other 3 days) My suggestion? Try this product because it works, but do it smart- diet with it and drink large quantities of water.
IT WORKEDOctober 18, 2007
Reviewer: Jason from Cleveland, Ohio
Earlier in the year in January I weighed in at 249lbs. I used Hydrocut the second week I worked out. I found results quickly. I stopped using HH after about 2 months. At that time I weighed about 223lbs. I did cardio mostly, a lot of running and situps. I lost about 4 percent bodyfat the whole time. I found a increse of energy and some little side effects. I managed to keep most of the weight off but my wife just had a baby 6 months ago so working out is tough. I weight now 232. Starting to use it again. I would recommend it.

Does work, with side effects. Don't abuse the product!October 17, 2007
Reviewer: Ross Avery from Clay, NY
I have notice a drop in my body fat percentage. I think this is a wonderful supplement if you can deal with the side effects. I have had had plenty bathroom breaks from this stuff and it felt like I was gonna vomit every once in a while. That is to be expected I guess as of any fat burning supplement. I notice greater results on the day I exercise with it because your metabolism speeds up much much faster.
Be careful how much you take though, I recommend you do not exceed the recommended amount to avoid liver damage. DO NOT ABUSE THE PRODUCT OR IT WILL ABUSE YOU!

Reviewer: Michelle from Los Angeles, California
I just started taking Hydroxycut 3 days ago. I don't have a scale handy but I did weight myself the day before I started HH. I am 23 yrs old, 5'0 120lbs. I have been dieting and exercising for almost 2 months now. Healthy lean foods, only water, and I do cardio and weight training 5-6 days a week. When I first started, I was 133lbs now I am down to 120lbs, that was without HH. I am trying to lose another 13-14 pounds or so. I have noticed a burst of energy after taking HH. I drink a ton of water 8-10 glasses daily and have not yet experienced side effects. I will be back for an update in a week. But so far so good.

Reviewer: Robert D. from Chappaqua, NY
I have to say I was very skeptical about the hype of this product. Within a 2.5 week period I lost over 18 lbs. and did not even notice it. I did not feel any overwhelming side effects from this product. I ate sensible foods and kept a positive outlook and am very impressed.
LIVER PROBELMS PLEASE READOctober 10, 2007
Reviewer: Dennis from orlando,fl
anyone experiencing liver problems should take something called a liver detoxifier they sell them at gnc ANYONE working out takeing anything sorts of pills that are not vitamins or supplements should take one or if you drink alot or if you are on steriods what this does is that it flushes out bad toxins you take one a week and your liver is never effected i hope this helps
Better, stronger, faster.October 09, 2007
Reviewer: Linebacker26 from Orlando, FL
I've been training everyday for months and although I've seen some improvements I still had a horrible mid section, and sometimes no motivation or energy. I was 6'5'' 245lbs with a body fat percentage of 24.
It's been 10 days since those results and I added Hydroxycut to my diet. HH has helped me to run more, and actually enjoy it. The burst of energy I get makes me run twice a day, in the early morning and at night. Weight-training has improved dramatically for me. Not so much as how much weight I push, but my repitions have gone way up and even doubled in some workouts.
Checking my numbers yesterday I'm 233lbs, with a body fat percentage of 17. My midsection isn't quite where I want it, but it's getting there, and I'm motivated to get it there. Although I've lost 12 pounds, I look as if I haven't lost anything but my midsection. I run so much faster now, and have the best mobility for my size.
I think Hydroxycut is a great product I would recommend it but use it within your comfort level.
Do your homeworkOctober 08, 2007
Reviewer: Skinny Wallet Only from The Lonestar State
I wanted to trim up some of my trouble spots, so I decided to try a fat burner - Hydroxycut Hardcore. After a month, I am quiting. I have not lost any weight or inches, I am more tired and irritable, and, worse, I suffer from a low grade nausea. I work out 7 days a week and have noticed a decrease in performance while on this product. I had more energy using caffeinated Crystal Light To Go, than using this product.
While I will not discourage others from trying Hydroxycut Hardcore, please do your homework. Find out all you can about this product. Talk to your doctor. And if you do take it, if you don't feel well, *stop taking it*. Good health is a fragile thing and is easily lost.

Reviewer: BLC from Chicago, IL
I just started taking HH on Sept 30. I am 5'10" and currently 178 lbs as of today. I would consider myself very active. I am a triathlete and workout as follows, MWF an hour cycling plus ab work, TTSat running with weight training, Sunday is a day of rest and three times a week I add in a swim in the mornings, but the days vary. The side effects have been tolerable but noticeable. I can definetly feel the energy boost, especially in the cycling. I have also found it a little more difficult to fall asleep at night, currently it takes about 2 hours of lying in bed. However, I can still get up in the morning for work, and dont get tired during the day (HH is probably keeping me from feeling tired). I will post again in 2 weeks to rate the actual weight loss part.
Works if you workOctober 03, 2007
Reviewer: Freedom Fighter from Afganistan
I started taking the product one week ago. Prior to starting I was just working out 3 days a week and 3 days a week spin class. I am in afganistan with the US military and all we do it workout when not working. I was 223 when I arrived here, in good shape with a little extra around the mid section. After working hard for one month I dropped to 213 but seems to stay there since I was trying to gain muscle and loose weight at the same time, Super Hard! But after one week with hyrdoxycut HC I dropped to 210, I skipped it one morning and struggled through spin class. I think this product does work but you have to work with it, can't just sit back and expect it to work alone.

Reviewer: Kenshin from edmond, ok
This product is working pretty well for me i n term of weight lost, I was 230 lbs before taking this product and in around a month and a half have gone down to 212 lbs. Oh and i'm just taking 1 pill a day. Thats with light gym exercises (2-3 times a week for 1-2 hours). The main problem i have with hydroxycut is that i'm experiencing alot of problem with my concentration, i get angry and lost control of my temper pretty fast now, and i'm unable to think properly sometimes now. I think i'm experiencing symptoms of ADD whenever I take hydroxycut, math and physic problems that should have been a breeze to do are taking me hours to complete... Probably gonna stop taking these pills until the x-mas vacations started, I simply cannot get any school work or test done correctly with these pills affecting my thinking, losing weight fast is simply not worth failing in uni.

I've been on Hydroxycut Hardcore for 2 weeks and i've lost 10 pounds, Out of the 2 weeks i took it i was in the gym for 5 days of those 14 so i didnt have to work too hard to lose the weight. I read some reviews and most people said that they were constipated and i have the opposite effect from the pills!! The only thing i had a problem with is the day i was suppossed to take 3 pills i felt like it was WAY too much for me so i am sticking to 2 pills. I recommend this product to other people who want to lose weight quick.
WATCH OUT FOR DAMAGE TO YOUR LIVERSeptember 18, 2007
Reviewer: Brooke from Los Angeles
I had been using Hydroxycut Hardcore for several months now and have experienced a slight decrease in fat & increase in energy levels. I am a very active person to begin with, so I think Hydroxy gave me the extra energy needed to burn off that last stubborn 5 pounds. HOWEVER, after a routine blood test at my doctor's office (my husband & I are trying to conceive), she told me to stop taking them immediately due to the damage it is causing my liver. She asked if I had any alcohol before my appointment, and gave her an emphatic "NO WAY." I hardly ever drink and wouldn't dream of doing so right before a doctor's visit. She was puzzled because my liver had elevated levels of toxins, similar to that of an alcoholic's liver or a night after hard drinking. I said that I rarely drink, don't do drugs or smoke cigarettes, hit the gym 4-5 days a week, and eat a very healthy diet. Then I told her that I had been using Hydroxy Hardcore, and she immediately knew that was the cause. I hadn't taken any pills for a few days before the blood test, but she said the damage has already been done and that it will take some time for my liver to get back to normal. I was going to stop taking them once we were really ready to conceive, but after hearing this, I have stopped immediately and will never take it again.
dont belive the hypeSeptember 18, 2007
Reviewer: Andre from toronto, CANADA
Basically i bought this product and for the first two days it worked a bit, i felt myself losing weight, but as i progressed through the bottle the effects of pills basically vanished. besides that my heart was giving me pains almost everyday. When i finished the bottle i had lost about 8 pounds which is half decent i would say but, i gained twice that weight back in 2 weeks, keep in mind i did not begin to overeat or stop exercising. This product is like all the other diet pills they cause REBOUND WEIGHT GAINING which is basically weight u gain after the product is done. RESEARCH IT EVERY DIET PILL HAS THIS SAME PROBLEM , THE REBOUND GAINING. I'VE TRIED LIPO6.HYDROXYCUT(BOTH ORIGINAL AND AHRDCORE) THEY ALL DO THE SAME. IN MY OPINION I URGE YOU NOT TO BUY AND DIET PILL , WHY? 1. BAD FOR YOUR KIDNEYS AND LIVER . 2. ITS A DRUG , DONT TAKE DRUGS TO LOSE WEIGHT. IN MY OPINION JUST GET A SOLID DIET PLAN AND EXERCISE PLAN AND USE THAT. FOR ONE ITS SAFER AND TWO IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETER. ALL THESE PILLS DO IS BOOST YOU BLOOD PRESSURE AND OTHER STUFF. STICK TO WHAT YOU KNOW. if you need a boost in your workout take whey protein. based off my personal experiences i urge you not to purchase these pills because if it so happens to work for you then you will see what will happen after.in this world there is no magic pill if there was a magic pill there would people linign up in fornt of GNC or wherever to buy these pills. Since the begining people have been exercising all of sudden these diet pills came into the market and everyone goes crazy LOL please what are we children. i dont want to be rude but the reason we buy these pills are because we are lazy. PLEASE take my advice and dont do it i made the mistake of fiesting on these diet pills and i messed up my metabolism. oh therese something all you diet pill users dont know. DIET PILLS SCREWS UP YOUR METABOLISM, DONT BELIEVE ME THEN DO RESEARCH CUZ I HAVE. it slows down the metabolism ver much so and its a hell to bring it back up, trust im learning the hardway. Currently i have been clean of these diet pills for about 8 months and i weigh 167 whereas i weighed b 200, i made it 167 without the pills. SO PLEASE FORGET what all these ppl are saying about "oh i lost 10 pounds", "ifeel great", put it simple: its a drug and drugs effect you in the long run.

Reviewer: Chef from NYC
I have been on HH for the past 8 weeks. I took a two week break from stacking creakic and just got back on it. My next stack will prob be the lukic. My strength level has increased. It allows you to push the big weight needed to get results. I also use Endothril which helps the musles rebuild quicker. My chest has gone from 38 inch man boobs to 39.5 inch rock hardness. I'm still batteling the traps aka love handles but my waist went from a 35in beer belly to a 31 inch waist in only 8 weeks. I still have a ways to go but I'm seeing a good progression. Laying off the booze helps but a beer here and there during a game is ok. It is just burned off insted of fat. This is not a wonder drug if you don't work out and follow the metabolisim regimine. I have increased my protein intake and manipulate my carbs on and off. You'll just wonder why you can't sleep! I work out after work and it helps me relieve stress tremendously. My whole outlook on life has changed, for the better. My abs aren't shredded yet but I can see the definition starting. My arms, chest, legs and back are getting there. Next step, take weights out into the woods like Arnold and do reps till my muscles grow inches overnight! haha just kidding. You gotta go HH 100%. there is no half assin it if you want results.

I started on HH about a week ago and i can definitely feel the effects. About an hour after I take a pill i feel a huge burst of energy and want to start pumping iron. Its kinda funny cuz if i take it outside of the gym, I'll be standing in line at the bank or at the grocery store finding myself doing intense isometrics.
I think HH is crazy, who knows whats going on inside my body, I feel like the incredible hulk.

Reviewer: Ssgt Starks USMC / Retired from LosAngels CA
ok so i been takin HH for 4 weeks or so, im up to 3 pills twice a day, and have no problems, if you continue to drink sodas and other bad stuff u will only notice little improvments, me personally i run 6days a week, (running is the fastest way to loose weight while on HH) 4 weeks ago i weighed in at 196 today i weighed in at 180
and thats just 4 weeks! so yeah, if you have problems with 3 pills 2x daily maybe you need to cut more caffine, or add more water to your diet!

Painful Start - But Worth A Try!September 07, 2007
Reviewer: Hotzone from Australia
I started using HH 5 days ago, after doing my research on the product. Being an endomorph, I wanted a supplement to reduce my body fat and tone up, particularly around the tummy section. Im 28, 5'11", and 90kg. Day 1-3, commenced on pills as directed: had to take a couple days off work, noticed nausea, moderate headaches (which i never had before), and needed lotsa rest. Made me drink lots more H2O. Finally, gaining tolerance to the pill, but dont think I will exceed the 2 pills, twice daily. I have noticed, like others, my fat around the chest/tummy appears more loose (less hard) but no weight loss to date. I am supplementing with high protein diet and 4x week cardio/weights training. I will keep you updated. ps. I think the sideeffects should be noted on the container!

I am a 5'6" 125lb female 21 years old and have been working out 4 times a week for 2hours a day for 4 months. I started taking HH yesterday to lose that little bit of belly fat that I can't seem to get rid of with just healthy eating, cardio and weight training. I took my first pill and then scarfed my supper...in fact you could say I took the pill between bites. BAD BAD BAD! It felt as though I was going to black out and that I really had to concentrate on breathing. As well, there was a huge weight on my chest like someone was pushing on me. I then relaxed and drank a lot of water, which seemed to help. This morning I took one pill and (like the bottle says) waited before I ate...much better! So PLEASE when they say "don't take with food" totally listen!!
Hydroxycut Hardcore on and off for 2 yearsAugust 31, 2007
Reviewer: Tony D. from Kentucky, USA
I started using Hydroxycut back in 2005. I started out at 201 lbs and after 6 months of working out moderately 3 times a week and taking Hydroxycut I got down to a decent 175 lbs.
I moved to TN and gained all the weight back over 6 months because I wasn't taking Hydroxycut or working out and I was eating whatever and sitting on my butt.
I am nw back home 201 lbs and I am going to begin taking Hydroxycut again. I forsee myself back at 175 lbs and cut by next summer (12 months). As for the guy that said he had the shakes; he said he just started taking hydroxycut and he took 3 pills? WTF? I take 1 in the morning before breakfast and 1 before lunch. If I take 2, which is n occasion, I feel a little too much energy. I'm telling you now: READ THE DIRECTIONS! It says take 1 to build tolerance, then two and if you get up to it then 3.

I'm 19 years old, 5'11 and have been an athlete all my life. After HS, i stopped playing sports and put on some unwanted LBS. Started at 204, 6 days ago. Took HH as prescribed on back of bottle. Drank lots of water, took vitamins, worked out hard daily. Since 6 days ago, I am down to 197 and am starting to see definition in my abdominals again! I am very satisfied with the weightloss. The side-effects have varied. Sometimes I eperience none, sometimes I feel dizzy and nautious. But the side-effects are very moderate and FOR ME, worth the weightloss. I love this pill and I hope it continues to work. I have a competition on October 13 and need to be 185 LBS. Oh, plus I've been eating very lean with small portions. TAKE AS PRESCRIBED ONLY!

Once a week I do an hour long cycling class (kicks butt). I have lost about 4 lbs on average due to time of day i weigh myself. I also drink MUSCLE MILK Protein shake after working out. My energy is about the same. I am about to up the dosage to 2 pills 2 times a day. My appetite is supressed, and i do not crave greasy foods like before. I have been eating soups, salads, sandwiches, and healthier food such as grilled chicken and vegetables. I drink 1 bottled water with the pill, then eat about 30 min later (dry cereal) and drink another bottle of water. In the afternoon I take a pill around 11am and drink a bottle of water, then eat 30 min later. Follow the directions!!! I cannot wait to update in a few weeks~ No headaches like othres report. iv'e been fine. Great Product So far.

I first tried this product for 2 months in march and april of 2007. I lost about 18 pounds which i was very happy with. I'm an athletic 5'9 214 and im back on it again august to hopefully lose 15 more.
Since i tried it before i decided to go right back to 3 pills every time. That was a mistake as on my 3rd day nto i feel the digestion side effects and i hardly ever feel like eating.
I dont however feel the other side effects like alertness and etc. Just a complete loss of apetite. I dont even get the munchies anymore haha.
Motivation in a pill!August 15, 2007
Reviewer: SPUNKIN from SALISBURY, MD
I would have to say this is a very good fat burner. I have lost about 5 lbs. in the past week taking this supplement. I am 5'8" tall and am 170 lbs. I am a female and along with daily walking (a mile a day) and weight lifting I have noticed more defined muscles. Not necessarily on the scale as much as the physical appearance. I am up to 2 pills at a time twice a day and have had no side effects. The extra energy derived from the capsule gives me that motivation that I wouldn't have otherwise to complete my exercise regimen on a daily basis. I have tried Lipo 6 also, but really had massive jitters when I took it. I think the Hydroxycut is a little better on the dosage of caffeine in each capsule.
Vitamins!!!!!August 13, 2007
Reviewer: BW Girl from Ohio, USA
I cannot stress enough how much you need a GOOD multi-vitamin while taking this pill! My sister works at GNC (and yes they are a rip off but give good advice) and she always suggests Men's Mega Men Sport Multivitamin for the men and Women's Ultra Mega Active for the women. Believe me it will still have some side effects at 1st but your body will adjust and it is worth it. My other sister and I both take Hydroxycut Hardcore(just 2 pills 2x a day though)with the multivitamin and we both lost over 7 lbs in the first week alone.
Please also remember you need to work-out, I only worked out an hour 4 days a week & I was still able to lose a total of 19 pounds in the first month.

I HAVE LOST 3LBS. IN 6 DAYS TAKING THIS SUPPLEMENT. IT IS MUCH CHEAPER BUYING IT ON EBAY THAN AT THE GNC STORE. I HAVE LOTS MORE ENERGY AND AM HYPER AND HAVE ALMOST NO APPETITE. NO BAD SIDE EFFECTS TO MENTION. I AM A FEMALE THAT IS 172 LBS. AND IS 5'8" TALL. I EXERCISE DAILY AND HAVE A GREAT HEALTHY DIET. THIS WORKS GREAT BUT IF YOU THINK YOU CAN EAT WHAT YOU WANT AND NOT EXERCISE PILLS WILL DO NOTHING FOR YOU. YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH THE SUPPLEMENT NOT AGAINST IT!

08/10/2007 1:34 am. I AM ON THE FORUMS TONIGHT BECAUSE I JUST WOKE UP AND MY LEFT SIDE AROUND MY TRAPS, MY NECK,AND MY LUNG,HAVE SHARP PAINS AND IT HURTS TO BREATH DEEPLY. I FEEL A SLIGHT BIT BETTER NOW BUT ITS BECAUSE IM A TOUGH GUY AND I THINK I CAN WORK THROUGH THIS.IT WAS SO BAD AT FIRST THAT I THOUGHT I WAS HAVENING A HEART ATTACK.im on my 4th day just started taking 4 pills a day. i noticed that the first couple of days i was very confused and irritated. didn't realize at first but it must be a side effect from the HH. i take multi vitamins and drink plenty of water. just getting started really and im upset that i might have to stop. did not try it with a workout yet but i don't notice any increase in energy (not that i really needed it)no weight loss yet. although i did take a huge **** this afternoon.my purpose for taking this was to help with problem areas and to "cut up" a little more.
The real dealAugust 08, 2007
Reviewer: Chef from NYC
If you get Hydroxycut hard core at GNC, ask for the book. It shows you a proper diet, what supplements to take along with it and what it actually does to your muscles (the science part). I take it right now and have seen tremendous increases in my work outs. I'm lifting more weight but not everyday because you want your joints to grow stronger too, and they strengthen at a slower rate than your muscles. My first cycle was Creatic alone. Then for the second month I added HH. I suggest taking Creatic and drink the recommended 10 8oz glasses of water. Actually, drink water by the quart. After a hard days work is when I head to the gym. I have pleanty of energy to get pumped and then head home for dinner. After all that, I have no problem sleeping. But it makes me feel like an animal so if you're single and don't have a steady...better find a partner! The newest edition to my regimine is Entdothil-CR. It really helps rebuild muscles after you pump.
It is important to take a break from drinking alcohol and partying if you want to really be serious about getting ripped. Once you see results, partake in a beer or two but don't take this and go out and get wasted or your hard work will be for nill and your liver will hate you.
Eat pleanty of small high protein meals through out the day. this will boost your metabolism. Once your body has gotten used to this diet, add some carbs to spike your insulin levels. I'd say once or twice a week, post work outs.
Worked for me, but not my wifeAugust 07, 2007
Reviewer: Mark from Las Vegas, NV
I felt the need to get 'help' from HH, as a friend told me it worked for him, and just passing 30 made me feel I needed the help. I started with the recommended doseage rates and have yet to experience any heavy side effects after 3 weeks. I don't know if I would include increased energy (sleeplessness) as a side effect; that's partially why I started taking it.
The largest change I'm noticing is the breakdown of the fat, making it a loose fat and not a 'hard' fat. HH has made me better at taking my RDA of water, and then some; make sure you stay hydrated, hence the name... 'Hydroxycut'
When my wife saw that it was working for me she tried it, however it didn't seem to work for her the same. She did experience more upset stomaches, and her cure was to eat more. However, her fat seemed to breakdown better as well; and she has lost weight.
I would suggest splitting a bottle with a friend or two to cut down on the price as a test. It's like everything else out there; it will work for some but not all.

Reviewer: Travis M. from Minnesota.
I started to use hydroxy cut hardcore and before i started taking the product I had a normal blood pressure of 118 or 74. I also had a resting heart rate of around 48bpm. I am a paramedic and a peace officer. I wanted to use the product to gain an edge for engery and quit drinking soda. I probably took about half of the bottle and i notice rapid weight loss, but my blood pressure was 150 over 110 and my resisting heart rate was around 110bpm. I discountinued taking the product when my blood pressure got that high. I feel that this product will cause strokes, it is my opinion. I feel that more research needs to be obtained on this product before people start taking it.

Reviewer: Maria maria from Elkhart, IN usa
so i started taking this product about 3 days ago. If your like me, you feel like you are a hard ass and can manage the maximum dosage. PLEASE DON'T DO THAT! im really glad that i went through and read the reviews game me lots of insight, on how to take the product the correct way. on the up side had my first work out last night, took one pill before my work out, felt like i could last for ever, didnt want to stop! Im having really bad migrains, and tension headaches, im going to only start taking this product 1pill 2x a day until i have no side effects any longer. im also extremely moody.okay MEAN. and im generally very very nice..dont know whats going on. im still going to give this a shot. went ahead and baught 210 capsules, too expensive too give up, so im gong to keep at it, if i have to start over again and take 1 pill a day. i really think even if you just want to boost your work out, buy the bottle that contains the smallest amount of pill just to take before your work out. once you work out more and harder youll feel better, want to eat healtier. :) maybe..give it a try..oh and i think im going to get a multi vitamin im sweating really bad!!!! I SWEATED BEFORE THIS, NOW ITS BAD..EMBARRASSING, CANT WAIT TILL IT GETS COLD..:) SO I CAN HIDE MY PERFUSSIVE SWEAT..HA..OKAY..ILL GET BACK TO THE WORLD IF I COME OUT BEING A SUPER MODEL AFTER THIS.. OH AND I POOP MORE WHEN I DRINK MORE WATER, WHICH IS GOOD, LESS WASTE IN MY BODY..I WISH I KNEW MORE ABOUT HEALTH..I NEED TO TKAE A CLASS
hello HH goodbye lbsAugust 04, 2007
Reviewer: Lorenzo from Sterling, IL
I am just finishing my first bottle and the reults are AWESOME! I started off at 256 lbs and currently I am 233 lbs. I love to lift wights but my fear of losing muscle mass caused me to put on stomach and face fat. Since using HH the weight has been flying off.I do however, do cardio 2x a day 3 days a week and 1x 3days a week combined with a advanced weightlifting program. remember to take protein if you do not want to loose muscle mass.(1 pound per body weight)You MUST clean up your diet and have an excercise routine 2 see results. This is not a miracle drug it only helps you if you want to be helped. I look a lot sexier since taken HH
Works, but makes you feel wired!August 02, 2007
Reviewer: Csrsteph from Dallas, TX
I just started HH one week ago, and already lost 5 lbs. -- even without exercising. It works, but the side effects are really unpleasant.
HH makes me so wired that I can't even work on my computer because I can't think straight or focus. I also talk way too much now. People think I'm on speed. It makes your heart feel like it's going to pound out of your chest -- even only taking 1 pill twice a day. And forget about sleeping. I've been on 4 hours a night, just laying there trying to sleep, but can't do it. It works, though.

Works well if side effects can be enduredAugust 02, 2007
Reviewer: VP from Portland, OR
I have used this product for three weeks, and I have noticed fairly considerable results. I started at 195, and have dropped to 179. I am continuining to drop weight. I also run 6+ miles per day and have a light weight lifting program. I had decided at first to have a loose diet, not eating fast food, fried food, or other extremely unhealthy foods. I intended to eat the same amount of food. But this pill severely dropped my appetite. Also, I have a had diarhea and an upset stomach fairly regularly. It says to take one dose immediately before working out, but I found that I could run much farther and lift much more without it, as it upset my stomach. I would recommend it though, as the weight loss is spectacular and the side effects, though they seem severe, are not that bad.
Be CarefulJuly 31, 2007
Reviewer: Zack from Saskatoon, Canada
I dunno but seems to effect different people in different ways. I used this product exactly how the people at gnc told me and followed the bottles reccomended intake. I drank tons of water to just to be safe. On the fouth day of taking it i was at the gym and about 10 minutes in i felt as though i was dying. My shirt was completely soaked with sweat, my heart was a racing, vision became very bright and blurry, and for some reason couldnt stop sneezing and have the worst runny nose and its like 40 C outside. This product is very scary because for some it totally works and for some it poses a great danger and people just take the risk. This company needs to study their own product and find out what type of people are prone to these scary and dangerous side effect.

Reviewer: Josh from San Francisco, CA USA
I started taking HH 5 days ago, I took 6 pills a day since the 1st day. I felt nauseated the first three days. On the fourth day, I paired it with GNC's Lean Shake (meal replacement) replacing my breakfast and lunch. Since then I felt a bit better. So far, I've lost 6 pounds (more than 1 lb a day!) I'm 5'10" and used to weigh 220 lbs. Now I weigh 214 lbs. My target is 180 lbs. At dinnertime, I usually eat salad and milk. Fruits for snacks. This combo totally makes me lose my appetite. any comments?

Reviewer: Janet from Tampa, Fl
I've been taking Hydroxycut Hardcore for a week and have lost 6 pound. The only problem I'm having is with my indigestion but I'm not sure if this is one of the side effects of HH. I have lost my appetite but when I eat something I start burping and I get heartburns. (Does anyone have this problem?)
Good Fatburner, bad for skin (sometimes)July 26, 2007
Reviewer: P0siti0n0fnutrl from Seattle, Wa.
The first time I started using this product I did notice weight-loss, which is hard for me because I work out daily and eat healthy any way. However, I noticed that I was breaking out more than usual. I didn't really think about it relating to hydroxycut though. I stopped taking it for about five months, in that time my face cleared up back to normal. I just started using it again about three weeks ago, and I noticed the same thing happening. It's not really bad acne, but in weird places below my jaw, where Im not prone to acne atall. This product does work for me weight-loss whise. I just don't know if the side-effects are worth it.
I would first like to say thanks to the creator of HH!!! I was tired of being called "Fat" I needed to do something, I am 22 and 6'1" I wieghed 271 when I started taking HH, I joined a local gym and I worked out for about an hour at first then moved up in time on cardio. I have been taking this product now for about 7 months and I have lost 43 pounds and 6 inches. I highly recomend this to anyone and I mean that. You must follow the instructions on the label or you will get undisired results, first thing i noticed is that you sweat alot more and pee more often also thats not a big deal because i feel that these are impurities leaving your body. i drink alot of water and eat better no fast food. i have stopped going to the gym now because of my busy summer schedual but i am still taking HH 2 pills 2x a day as a maintenance I cant stress this enough follow the instructions and you will be happy with the results i know i was, once i loose another 15-20 pounds i will cut back on the pills and gym visits but not stop completly i really hope this review helps some of you in your final decision!! thanks for taking the time to read this.
Seems to work but lots of side effectsJuly 25, 2007
Reviewer: Kristian from Leeds, UK
everyone above has already stressed that you MUST follow directions so I wont say it :). This is what hydroxycut has done for/to me :
- made me feel really alert and buzzy yet lowered my attention span (too buzzing to focus on anything for more than one minute)
- gives me a sort of anxious/high feeling in my stomach
- unlike every one else it has decreased my appetite alot
- gives me the shakes
- makes me a lot warmer body temperatre wise
- makes me sweat through my hands (thick sweat)
thats the side effects...BUT
- within one month i have noticed considerable results, ive kept on the same training and diet as before using these, and in my estimation ive lost as much fat in one month than i would have done in 2months before taking these
i do recommend them but u have to put up with side effects...
i dont like the side effects but find it kind of funny, its like evil cocaine that lasts for about 5 hours....makes the day a little more interesting than being sober though!
so all in all
very very strong and lots of side effects butit really does work...up to u to how much u want to burn fat :)
EnergyJuly 23, 2007
Reviewer: Billy from St. Louis, MO USA
I've been taking Hydroxycut for almost two months and the most extreme benefit I've noticed has been that I have the energy to workout on days when I probably wouldn't have. Early on the side effects are more extreme, such as strong hunger, a strange state of mind, it is kind of like being high, and frequent bowel movements. As I've been taking it for a longer time, the side effects have subsided and I've been able to change my body composition fairly well. Partially, I think my results are due to the fact that I've completely overhauled my diet, started working out regularly, etc. I do know that Hydroxycut Hardcore has given me the energy to work out daily, but am not sure about much else. I think anyone who can convince themselves to start eating a strict 2000 calorie diet, commit to a 1 hour workout and a 1-5 mile run each day would lose weight anyway, HH just keeps me on track because of the energy boost, it's like 10 cups of coffee at once!
First dayJuly 20, 2007
Reviewer: Bob from Anytown, AT 55555
Ok so i took 2 since the guys at GNC says if one cup of coffee has little effect then go for 2

DO NOT take 2 on your first try, going to scale down the dosage as at the moment i feel light headed and wired bu struggling to concentrate

Reviewer: Mad from AUA
I'm a 21 y/o that started using HH llittle more than 2 weeks ago. Before i started using this product i went online and informed myself on as much as i could about it...
Based on the reviews i've read and my personal experience on the little time i have been using it, i can say that it DOES help u lose weight and boosts up your energy, however, reading directions on the label and learning how to use it properly is VERY IMPORTANT. So if ur planning on taking it, my advice would be to drink lots of water throughtout the day, eat as healthy as you can, excersice regularly (i do 5 times a week), get enough hrs of sleep, and try taking a good multivitamin.

Reviewer: Jusbasso from Toronto Canada
I bought a bottle of this stuff with the help of a GNC guy. Im 18 and need to lose about 25-30 pounds. First thing is that im 18. Second thing is that i am not very active at all. I used to smoke and have quit and have very bad lung capisity. I HAVE started a workout plan at my local gym and have been doing it for 2 weeks now. Lungs have gotten a little better. Im just scared weather or not to take it. I am healty, no problems but weak lungs not on any medications and dont do anyother drugs. I also bought the GNC Mega Man Vitamins that i have been taking daily for a week now and very much like. Im just wondering if anyone could give me suggestions as to what i should do.
FeelingJuly 09, 2007
Reviewer: Larry from EU
I've been taking HH for 3 days. It is really strong (feels stronger than lipo-6), it gives energy, I can run faster, and I feel "thermic" effects (in general I feel warmer). My problem is that I am very very hungry - it does not kill my incremented appetite.
SuggestionsJuly 09, 2007
Reviewer: Rob from Winnipeg, Canada
Suggestions concerning Hydroxycut:
If you wish to take it even after considering the numerous health warnings, I suggest this.
- Drink alot of water, atleast 2L a day if not more. A glass every hour you're awake.
- Eat even if you're not hungry. With the major depletion of your body's vitamins and minerals it's best you constantly snack on veggies and fruit or have the recommended 6 small meals/day.
- Eat healthy
- Take multi-vitamins, can't stress this enough.
- Take it as directly written on bottle, more isn't better.
- It doesnt work for everyone.
- Stop taking it if you notice any of the symptoms I've mentioned in the last article. It's your body telling you that it's out of balance and that something isn't right. Are the few pounds losing worth all of the medical risks you could encounter? I'd say true results come from good eating habits and exercising properly.
Side effectsJuly 09, 2007
Reviewer: Rob from Winnipeg, Canada
Here are some of the side effects I personally experienced taking Hydroxycut. Other people's experiences may vary to a less degree or much more severe:
I've only taken it for 4 days and followed the directions exactly as stated on the bottle.
- I felt hungrier
- It made me feel more awake yet less "mentally" involved in the world around me/zoned out/drunk.
- When I did sweat it was thick like olive oil.
- Lumps appeared on the inside of my arm at the elbow. They looked like large goosebumps. First day just my left arm, the next day just my right arm.
- Headaches, not severe though.
- Stomach felt funny like after eating deep-fried chinese take-out..the full yet hungry.
- I felt kind of dizzy, not extremely though.
- I did sleep fine since I took the pill a good 7-8 hours before sleep.
- Pupils dialated like I was in fight or flight mode.
- felt jittery
- Diarrhea/excrementing more often
My suggestions are in the next article (probably above)
- Others have reported pounding heart sensation, nausea, puking, dizzyness, irregular sleep patterns, mood swings, breathing/wheezing/shortness of breath, burning sensation in tongue and lip, passing out, jitters, constipation, diarrhea and probably many more symptoms I've missed.
READ THIS!!!!July 09, 2007
Reviewer: Rob from Winnipeg, Canada
As the last review states..Hydroxycut depletes vitamins and minerals from your diet. Many side effects that people have stated as having I believe is related to this. Here's some medical proof, as doctors write the side effects of lacking vitamin B:..take your vitamins!!!!
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of severe vitamin B12 deficiency (regardless of the cause) may include burning of the tongue, fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite, intermittent constipation and diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss, menstrual symptoms, psychological symptoms, and nervous system problems, such as numbness and tingling in the feet and hands. Most symptoms can occur before the deficiency is severe enough to cause anemia. Healthcare professionals have a series of laboratory tests that can determine B12 deficiency at earlier stages that are not accompanied by anemia.
awsome for ppl who follow directions well !!!July 03, 2007
Reviewer: Alicia from Central Florida
First off I would like to say If you DO NOT follow the directions on the bottle, you WILL get sick!!! You can't expect to get to 3 pills twice a day by the third day. There are reasons the company give directions with this product. Also not everyone can take 3 pills at once. I am one of those people. I started out weighing 250lbs. I am 5'4. I took HH before and didn't follow well therefor didn't get any results. I have been on it again for about 2 mths and with moderate exercise (I am a machine operator in a orange juice plant)5 days a week I now am down to 226lbs. I personally take 2 pills 3x daily. It works well for me. I do recommend you take a multivitamin with HH. I didn't for this duration and I was told when I bought my 2nd bottle last wk that I needed to. I was really starting to feel wore out and this week after starting the MV I feel great again!!! I haven't really been on a crazy diet. I just cut portion sizes and now I completely STAY AWAY from fast food!!! I used to binge eat a lot. I am an emotional eater. With HH I don't have that urge to eat!!! This is a great way to lose the weight and feel good doing it, but you really really REALLY have to follow the directions!!!!
READ THIS PLEASE!!!!July 03, 2007
Reviewer: Someone who knows something about this product... from TEXAS
I work at GNC and know quite a bit about the product. most of you people are not even taking HH right, and i would bet anything the majority of you arent taking a multi-vitamin. if you are getting dizzy, your B and C vitamin amount in your body is probably low through perspiration. HH works off of the vitamins and minerals in your body to work at its highest potential. if you lack these vitamins and minerals you will most likely see some side effects such as dizziness and headaches. and please follow the damn directions and dont take 3 twice on your first day. it clearly says how to load the product on the back. if 3 twice a day is too much for you, take the "maintenance stage" which is 2 twice a day. and dont take it three times a week and take weekends off, this will actually throw your fat burning hormone norepinephrine out of whack and you'll probably wind up putting on some weight. thanks and good luck with HH.

Reviewer: Joe55 from Iowa
Lost 35 pounds before i started it in 6 weeks. I have been taking it for two and have only lost 7 pounds after.- porbably not due to taking the pill because i now work out 3-4 hours a day and have a 800-1200 calorie diet a day. Worse part is the rash that has just developed. No supplement for excersising and eating right. It might have helped me lose the 7 pounds at the end but not worth the many sideeffects.!

Helped give me that extra push...June 28, 2007
Reviewer: Kila from Berkeley, CA USA
I am 5'2 and weighed 120lb when I started taking Hydroxycut Hardcore, only wanting to lose about 10-12 lb. I have been 4-6 pills a day for approximately 3.5 weeks and have lost 4.5lb and 1 inch off my waist. I had minimal side effects, besides the occasional restlessness. However, when I started on 6 a day, I started to crash around 5-6pm, needing to take an hour long nap. This has subsided since I went back to 4 a day.
My boyfriend also started on HH the same time as I did. He started out at 160lb and has lost approximately 8lb with 2 inches off his waist.
All in all, it seems that HH really does work well, however only with diet and/or exercise. It gives you that extra boosts and shows your results faster.
dialationJune 28, 2007
Reviewer: Aaron Thomas from San Diego, CA USA
my main complaint is that your eyes become dialated. I look like I'm on acid or mushrooms or coked up!!! It also gives me nausea for the first 3 hours. When you get to 6 pills a day, by the second day it was debilitating.
However, I do have more energy, a lot more.
It's been 8 days, don't think I'm going to continue to use it.
I don't know how effective this really is....June 28, 2007
Reviewer: Bobby Deese from Monroe, NC, USA
Well I was going to the beach for senior week after graduation, and I had about 3 months to lose some weight to get ready for it. For the 1st 2 months I worked out regularly and cut my calorie intake to about 1,400 calories a day. I ended up losing about 28 pounds. For the last month I used the HH. I lost about 10 more pounds. While I do realize that the weight gets harder to lose as more and more comes off, I still figured I would have lost a little more the last month since I kept my diet the same and added the supplement.
It didn't really effect me all that much. The 1st time I took it, it was pretty amazing, I could work out harder and longer than ever before and still had energy to spare, but after the 1st maybe 3 times it didnt really do that much for me. I don't really drink soda or coffee so its not like I have a caffiene tolerance.
Overall I would say its an ok product, I lost weight but I don't know how much of it was the supplement and how much was just my diet and excersise

I exersize 3 - 4 times per week, with the exception of last week, and I limit my calorie intake to about 1,500 per day. Every now and then I treat myself to something I want to eat. If I do get fast food, it's a salad from MCD's or Wendy's. This method is working for me. I feel great and am looking forward to more progress.

I am a senior in college and I have always been a big guy. When i was younger I thought lifting weights would help me lose my fat. All it did was make me strong. So right now I big guy who just needed to lose my fat. I Started taking HH, and mega man sport from GNC a month ago and went on a moderate diet and cardio exercise program. I also started lifting weights again to re-tone my muscle. After only one month of using this stuff I have already lost 25 pounds, and my six pack is coming through, my legs don't rub up against each other when I walk, and even my arms are losing the jiggle. This is a great product and the people who are complaining about it not working or it giving them horrible side effects have not been following the directions or are having adverse reactions to it. I recomend being careful with it but also giving it a try, its worth buying the small bottle at first.
Energy but no weight lossJune 24, 2007
Reviewer: Ashley from San Diego
I have been taking this product for about one week now. I am almost 5'6" and 120lbs. I look really skinny but I felt unhealthy, after trying to work out on my own and becoming exhausted quickly I turned to HCH for additional energy. When I tried boosting up to two pills twice a day I felt really nauseated and got horrible stomache cramps. I continue only taking two pills a day (one in the morning, second in the evening). I have not lost any weight from this product but have had an increase in energy at the gym. I like this product strictly because my workouts are not longer and harder and I feel better.

Bit angrier than normal, tightness in the chest. It does however, do a good job on curbing my appetite. I've been lifting weights for about 1-1/2 months, and was a body-builder during my youth. I'm now 45. I'm not seeing the cuts I thought I would, but it is slowly helping me lose weight.
Amazing.June 22, 2007
Reviewer: Sam from MI
Amazing product. I got a little heavier in my first 2 years of college.(not being able to go to the gym regularly due to school work, and eating horribly) and decided I decided i wanted to slim down. I like most people cycle my supplements to get the max effect out of them. making sure my body doesnt get to used to them. I made sure to follow the directions exactly as far as dosage's go. the first month supply i went from 265, to 240.
I started my second cycle mid-last week and have already dropped to 233.
Everyones body acts differently however. I had a female friend using HHC for a month and getting nothing but jitters, and horrible sleep patterns.
If you use the prodcut wisely, and dont get hooked on it, you will be just fine. But remember all bodies react differently, so just because it worked amazingly for me, doesnt mean it will have the same effects on you.

Ive foundout that it gets hard to sleep at first but after a while your body builds tollerance. You get pumped at the gym but mainly because of high ammounts of caffiene. Ive noticed that it takes away your hunger and it does work good but not what everywon says. After the snd bottle I droped 15 pounds of fat. Thermo gain is better.. Try it, trust me.
Went to the ERJune 19, 2007
Reviewer: Trevor from Florida
I agree with the user who said that this product is potentially dangerous! I am 6'2", 190lbs, lift weights and run, and am in great health. yesterday, I took two in the morning and one and hour before working out. WHile at the beginning of my weight lifting work out, I got dizzy, my heart was racing, my muscles tensed up, and I wound up on the floor of the gym, then in an ambulance. At the ER, they ran tests and couldn't conclude that anything was wrong with me (EKGs, blood work,etc.). I definitely attribute what happened to taking this product. I have been taking it for a few weeks and this is the first time something like this had happened, but have never experienced anything like it before. Maybe this drug affects people who are not overweight differently than those who are...but I will certainly never take this product again. If you do decide to use it, get a physical both before and a week into taking it...

"I decided to take HH to lose only about 6--8 pounds and to tighten my abs up. I am a 40 year old, very petite, very athletic female that has NEVER had a problem in this area until recently... I guess thanks to the big 4--0 gig. Anyway... I haven't really seen the results I was sure hoping to get. I've lost maybe 2 or 3 pounds but my abs haven't done anything to be jumping for joy over and I am working out! At first, I had no apetite at all and now, 4 weeks later I find myself binge eating. What is up with that!? When I took the dosage of 3 pills I got sicker than a dog. I nearly gave it up but decided to just stick with the 2 pill dosage and I take the weekends off. I do not have a weight problem: I am 5'3" and weigh between 107 and 111. I want to be between 104 and 107 with a rock hard stomach. HH isn't living up to the hype!"
Obviously it isn't working for you because you have little to no fat on your body. If you weigh between 107-111 you don't have to lose any weight. Hopefully this stuff works just bought a bottle like an hour ago.
I started taking HC about a week ago. Today was my first day taking the full dosage (3 pills 2x daily). I dont like the way this product makes me feel, although I did drop three pounds last week. The caffeine in this supplement is very strong. I've noticed an increase in my irritability as well as dizziness and blurred vision. I'm hoping these side effects subside as I know many who have had success with this product.

Reviewer: Christa from USA
I starting taking HC about 3 days ago and today I almost DIED! The 1st day I took 1 twice a day and I felt NOTHING. The 2nd day I took 2 twicw a day but felt very little. Now on my 3rd day I took 3 twice a day. Once at 9am and 2nd at 1pm. By 2:30 my heart was racing, my hands were numb, I felt like I couldn't breath and I was going to pass out at any second. I was home alone with my 4 kids and got scarred so I called 911. Paramedics came and took me to the hospital. My heart rate was 166 sitting still!!! I felt like I was going to loose it and had a major angsiety attach. The gace me adivant to help with the side effects I was getting from the HC. The said that they see people everyday in the ER that have taken this drug that have the same side effects. The doctor thinks that I might have had an allergic reaction to one of the drugs in HC. I was so scared and actually though I was going to die and I am only 29 years old! Please Please Please be careful with this drug. Even when the ER doctor looked at the ingredients in HC he as amazed, he says it's basucally "legal speed" They have me on adavent for the rest of the weekened then I need to go see my doctor on Monday for further test. Please make sure that you see a doctor before you take this to get his "OK" it is very dangerous for some people who do not have a high tolerance to the drugs that are in HC,

Great product!!!June 10, 2007
Reviewer: Aaron from Charlottetown, PE Canada
Hey everyone, this is a great product if you want to lose weight fast! I lost 42 lbs thus far, and have only been on it for 3 months!! I don't see any of these side effects at all, as for sleeping, not an issue at all - it was for the first couple of days but after you give it time you'll be fine.
One perception of this pill is losing 10 lbs in a week. The reason you think you lose that much in a week is because you stop eating as much, wear less clothes when you weigh your self, etc. I dont care how good this product is, you will not lose 10 lbs in a week - use controls when you weigh yourself - same time of day, same attire, etc. and then you will see what you are really losing!
Taking the pills isnt the only thing you do. You have to figure out what your calorie maintence amount is, and eat roughly 500 calories less than that per day. You also have to be moderately active (cardio 3-5 times a week) - of course, this is if you want to see maximum results.
Right now, I find myself stuck at about 225 lbs. I'm going to give the product another 3 weeks, if I don't continue losing I'll be switching. I plan to increase to 8 pills a day for a week since I'm not seeing any of the side effects and I want to see if it helps at all.
this works but if you follow the instruction in the bottleJune 07, 2007

So I started yesterday, took one pill in the morning, did some cleaning untill the 40 minutes passed and had breakfast, went to work and had the second pill and worked for 3 hours, came back and had some dinner, I have to say I'm eating healthier, everything baked and smallerportions.
Day 2 did almost the same thing with the difference that i didnt have to work, but went shopping with my family.
Tomorrow is my last day for the two pills process and Im expcting to be ok with the 4 pills process... Im also starting a working out program
It's working so farJune 02, 2007
Reviewer: Bringing sexy back from dallas, tx
started taking it a week ago, lost 5 pounds after the first week. Doing 3 days of circut weight training, and 3 days of cardio. Watching what I eat also. Constipation is a side effect. Did notice during first workouts that my heart felt like it was going to explode, but subsided now. Notice alot more sweat during working out. Drinking lots of water during the day, no sodas at all.
Not badJune 02, 2007
Reviewer: Will bellsprout from NY
I did some research and apparently it does do it's job of HELPING you burn fat. So I look forward to seeing results.
However the first time I tried it today, I followed the directions precisely and took 3 pills before my meal. About an hour later while I was working out I felt like I was going to die. I felt like I had drink 3 cans of redbull in one setting, the caffine in this is extremely powerful so don't try and fuck with it.
I felt like I had these constant bursts of energy but not the type of energy that I needed to run miles and miles. Maybe this time I will take 2.
Bottom line this stuff will probably work however be careful as if you OD on this you will get messed up. Seriously now.

Amazing product besides some annoying minor side effects..
I have seen a difference......May 30, 2007
Reviewer: Breeze from Phoenix, Arizona
I have been taking Hydroxycut for about 1 month. I am a coffee drinker and had to switch to Decaf. I have changed my eating to just chicken, fish, only baked foods, Splenda instead of sugar, and I have seen a huge difference. I already walk 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week, and do strength training 30 minutes 3 days a week. Hydroxycut gives me the energy to keep going. I do not suggest to anyone to take it without exercise and eating right because it works better once you follow a program. I also take my last pill at about 2 pm because it will cause you to be up all night if you take it too late. I was 5'6 and 170 pounds and I have already lost 20 pounds. I am now 150 and I have about 20 more to go. I had jitters from the caffeine but I am fine now that I have changed to decaf and started drinking more water. I drink about 1 Gallon a day because it is already about 110 degrees in Phoenix...Good Luck....and remember it has different side affects on everyone...
Waiting to try, but a note about the "rash"....May 30, 2007
Reviewer: Reviewer from NC from USA
I'm getting ready to buy the supplement, so I haven't tried it yet. I just wanted to post this just in case it might be useful to someone. I've read that some people experience a "rash" on their face, arms, etc. when taking this product. This reaction is actually caused by a really potent form of niacin and is called "flushing". This usually feels like itching, reddened skin, burning or tingling. It's not an allergic reaction. If you get any of these symptoms, they can usually be helped by avoiding hot water in your bath or shower and using lukewarm water instead. Flushing usually goes away after your body adjusts to the niacin after 1-3 months for most people, but everyone is different.
P.S. - If you're under 18 and trying to lose a few pounds for whatever reason, please don't take any kind of fat burner. You don't need it - exercise and diet alone will do it for you. These supplements can be really dangerous, so if you insist on taking them anyway despite the warnings, let someone know that you're taking it so they can help you watch for side effects.
Second day - feeling oddMay 24, 2007
Reviewer: Flora from Chicago, IL
I have tried several diet pills (trimspa, cortislim, NV, etc.) and I have to say that Trimspa worked but after researching hydroxycut hardcore I decided it was worth a try.
Now let me say this to you if you are wanting to try it: drink hoards of water, as much as you can stand. Eat right, or else you will have cramps, headaches and heartburns and long term side effects. Exercise. It's a supplement, not a miracle pill.
The first day that I took HH I took one at 8 am and one at 4 pm... Considering that I donated blood at 2 pm and played volleyball for 2 hours in the blazing sun at the beach at 4:30 and did not die or feel weird (just a bit of accelerated heartbeat during volleyball) I think HH is doing the trick. It's been 3 days and I can see a difference in myself already. Oh, and my appetite has been supressed, which is basically a miracle.

Hydroxycut HardcoreMay 19, 2007
Reviewer: Steve from California
First day on the pill took one before i worked out and 2 before cardio and boxing. I weigh 165 and am 5'10". It kept my mind focused and and i had a lot of drive. You do get out of breath a lot quicker but its nothing to complain about unless your a bitch. I ran after two hours of heavy lifting up flights of stares and and over a mile. Then i boxed my friend and i had great stamina. Yes it did decrease my appitite but i was fine eating a couple plain chicken breasts and milk and protien shakes. I believe this pill is for the people who are fit and dont have a medical history and who know what the fuck there doin cause it really aint that bad if you cycle water and eat right. I also felt very alert and while i was boxing with my friend and was able to react quickly and counter, pretty sick. Granted i do play football and am in great shape this pill is not for the average soccer mom or lazy ass looking for an easy way out. Do your research, understand the consequences, know your family history and decide if you are ready.
Don't waste your money!!May 18, 2007
Reviewer: Carolyn from Middleburg, FL
I tried HH for 3 weeks and couldn't bare the side effects (severe heartburn, racing heart, increased blood pressure, bloating, constipation), and yes I followed the directions and drank loads of water. I didn't lose a single pound and I would have suffered through the side effects if it had worked for me. I wanted to finish the bottle before calling it quits and writing my review, but it just wasn't worth it.
tones you out really goodMay 18, 2007
Reviewer: AJ from ALASKA
I read everyone of of your reviews, and quite frankly got me worried. Why would I take a suppliment that could yes tone me up, but on the other hand severly put my health more at risk? So it got me thinking; the mojority of these reviews people felt side effects the first week, but they also started off with two pills a day. So I told myself I will buy the product take 1 pill a day at first and see how my body reacts, and after each pill i took, I drank about 40 FL OZ of water, and roughly 45 min later ate a meal. then after no pain and side effects I jumped to 2 pills a day keeping my same routin, but now I started running 20 min a day (recommended run time) to stabolize the pill, and felt even better. a month has gone by i am now on 6 pills a day (3 at a time) and i feel and look great, lost roughly 3-4 percent body fat. The reason most people are having trouble with this pill is A) not use to the energy drive, B) not drinking enough water or C) taking the pill with out working out/running just hoping the pill would work by itself. So my advice to everyone out there who wants to take this pill is to drink 1 gallon of water a day, work out 5 days a week and also take this piil 5 days out of a week and run 20 min a day, and you will be just fine.

Starting out good.May 15, 2007
Reviewer: Doug from Seattle, WA USA
I started Hardcore about a week ago. It's time to burn the winter fat! The first couple of days were rough (Jittery, lack of sleep, etc...). This was just taking one pill twice per day. After a couple of days, my body adjusted. I started taking 3 pills three times per day after 5 days. The only residual that I'm still feeling is a sour stomach. This is curbed with tons of water. Since everyone has complained of constipation, I have been taking Medimucil twice a day and have had no constipation problems. Like other advice, I stoked up my workouts while taking HH. In the first week, I am down 10 pounds. My goal is to lose 20. I think the biggest benefit HH has had in my weight loss is appetite control which I hope to maintain once my stomach shrinks after stopping HH. I've taken advantage of the appetite control and changed to a healthier diet since I'm not having specific cravings. My biggest advice is drink tons of water. Being a diuretic, this drug makes you purge water. If you don't drink the water, the weight loss that you are seeing will primarily be water weight and not fat weight (Not Good). Good luck!
No ChangeMay 14, 2007
Reviewer: Leanna from Camp Lejeune, NC
I had absolutely no change with Hydroxycut Hardcore. It burned my throat like Lipo 6 (when not taken with water), but it did NOT work like Lipo 6...it did not work at all!
On a side note, Hydroxycut did work for my brother, so it really depends on your body type.

This is my second day of taking this. I took 2 yesterday (1 pill twice), and today i am taking 2 as well. (i am following instructions!)
I do not have any of the side effects others are having or that are listed online... BUT i did get out of breath today when i walked my usual two miles (but i usually half jog, half walk). I started to jog it when i first left my house today, got about 100 yards and had to walk THE REST OF IT!
I am going to continue using this product alternating bimonthly with NO2 because I am trying to make the varsity Cheer Team at the University of Toledo.
I repost once i am up to regular dosing, and probably right before i switch over to NO2 for next month

Reviewer: Tee from Texas
Started taking HH in March along with working out 5 times a week and have lost over 20 pounds with it. It's not a miracle fat burner where if you take it without diet and exercise you'll lose weight. Just follow the directions, eat sensibly, get off your butt and work out, and replace your sodas or beers with water!

Reviewer: Keith from Florida
I'm 35 and have been in great shape all my life. I thought taking Hydroxycut Hardcore make it easier to keep my six pack. Well, I just got a physical for my work and my blood pressure was through the roof! I had not taken on the day of the physical, but had taken 3 the day before. I will not be taking this again and recommend anyone who is taking it to check their blood pressure and make sure you are still at the normal 120/80. I can not express how surprised I was to see my pressure go from 115/65 to 135/102! I just hope I don't have any permanent damage. Be careful.
Works for meMay 09, 2007
Reviewer: Erin from Chicago
I've been using Hydroxycut for years. Obviously the one w/Ephedra works the best. Right now I'm using Hardcore. If you have shaky hands, pounding heart, etc, then your body has not acclimated to the dosage and you need to cut back. HH helps me focus, gives me energy, helps me shed water weight, and curbs my appetite which is my biggest obstacle. When I use it in combination with exercise I see immediate results, all though it does plateau. HH, in my opinion, should just be used as a starter, not as a solution. Eating fatty foods on it doesn't work, either. However, I am concerned about the strain it puts on the heart and how it will effect my heart twenty years from now. Ah, the American dream of being thin....

I only gave this product three stars because the jury is still out on whether or not it works. I followed it religiously so far...drinking 6 24oz bottles of water a day is important and haven't noticed any side effects. The first day I took the second pill at five and couldn't sleep. This is the first day I'll be working out the same day I took the pill so we'll see. Also, it does curb your appetite really well so make sure that you force yourself to eat small during the week. I'll post more next week.

Well, Ive been back on HH since my last review (April 9) and I must say my body has taken to HH much better since my last review, no more jitters, nauseau and so on. What I have noticed though is constapation...geeeez I guess there has to be something right! Otherwise the product seems to be working well with me. As of weight loss its hard to tell because im also using their other products Nitrotech & Celltech wich has given me plenty of muscle mass. But Fat loss I would say YES I lost alot of that But cant quite pin it all on HH (sorry). Im weighing 200 lbs (213 my last weigh-in, April 12). I look more defined now as far as cuts and looking lean, still have more to go since its only been 3 weeks but yeah somethings working!
1 major problem and I dont know whats causing it is Ive been desensitized in the sexual sense....GRRRRRRR..... Wifee not happy! so now I have to figure this out!!!!!!
Use cautionApril 25, 2007
Reviewer: Linda from Farmington, MI
If you have a sensitive digestive system (easily get diahrrea, or have irritable bowel syndrome) do NOT take this! I was all concerned with the caffeine effects, and didn't expect what I really got. I only took two pills on my first day, yesterday, and it's 4 a.m. and I'm up with severe cramping in my lower intestines. It's like a really bad IBS attack. I was in tears, but the ibuprofen is helping now. My husband has had no problems whatsoever though. Everyone's different. I wish I could take this as I can't seem to budge my belly fat though I work out with cardio and weights at least an hour a day, 6 days a weeks and watch what I eat! But, better to have a belly than to be in constant pain. I may be messed up for a few weeks now, I regret taking this!!
Does the Job!April 25, 2007
Reviewer: Joanne from England
I am 22, female, and have had been trying to lose this extra few pounds for a long time! I decided to try HH to give me that boost. I have been taking it for 5 days and have REALLY noticed a difference!!
Not reading the label properly to start with, on my 1st day I took 2pills twice and did not sleep at all that night! I took 2pills once daily for the next 2 days, which was fine and I have been taking 2pills twice daily for the last 2 days (days 4&5). I do NOT plan to increase to the 3pills twice daily dose!!
I have really noticed the difference on my tummy (my problem area), even in this short time! However, I have been getting bad headaches and heartburn that I cannot seem to get rid of. I also get a really tired period a few hours after taking the pills - I guess thats expected from taking so much caffeine!
I have been combining HH with exercise everyday - either a workout at the gym or an aerobics class as well as walking to work everyday. I have also cut my calories. However, I have been getting more hungry which I was surprised by - most people seem to have a reduced apetite from this product.
I plan to complete the course and see how things go but it is a lot of money to spend and will probably not buy any more after this bottle.
I would recomment this product to anyone wanting to get rid of those extra pounds fast!
Great Boost!April 22, 2007
Reviewer: Matt from Ontario, Can
I have been taking HH 3 pills twice a day and am almost done my first bottle. I started with 1 pill and was up all night. But I worked my way up weekly and am at the top end dosage.
I have had great results thus far and no negative side effects. I might have a higher tolerence for the products ingredients though. Recently I have started stacking with Ephedrine and am waiting to see how that affects it. So far so good though.
In the past month I have dropped 15lbs and several inches. I am getting very nice seperation, especially between my shoulders and bicpes because of the weight loss. I also have crazy energy and focus.
I do have to schedule my meals in and force myself to eat because I have zero hunger. So, keep that in mind when taking this. Eating is important in losing weight.
Overall, I am very satisfied and will continue using it as I strive towards reaching my goals. I can see it not being for everyone, so start slow with the doseage and work up. And remember to eat and drink water like crazy!

ive been taking it for a month with no results. Ive lost a couple pounds, but i am almost positive that HH wasnt the reason. i used to take it before workouts, but that only made me feel like my heart was going to stop. I got dizzy, and very nauseated. i thought that if i kept taking it, then my body would get used to it. BAD idea. it only got worse.)
first of all colin no shit its not going to show results in a month. u never read any reviews or checked anything out before you bought it did u. u just bought it for the label. well thats your first mistake. its oging to take at least 30-60 days to get into your system and you going to that high protien diet your gunna fucking plum up like a baloon. you gotta take it consistent for two months then have an off cycle of eating right and not high protein shit. its a great product and it works hella good just a lil expensive for me but i do continue to use it.
STRONG STUFFApril 18, 2007
Reviewer: Dominic from Orlando, FL
Okay, I'm 29, 165lbs. I hit a major platau and need to lose about 10 more for the six pack I had last year. I am also very healthy and do cardio every day for 60 minutes or more.
That being said, holy crap is this stuff strong. I did the "assess your tolerance" schedule and could didn't feel anything on 1 pill 2x per day. 2 pills was more pronounced. 3 pills is/was insane. So far so good. I was at 168 and today (a week later) I am at 165. Nothing else changed. I take two first thing in the morning (empty stomach) with about 16oz water, then I do 45 mins cardio about 10 minutes later. Upon returning home I take the 3rd pill and then eat a smallish breakfast (yogurt & cottage cheese) about 10 minutes later. I take the second dose all at once at 3pm. If I take it any later I can't get to sleep at 11pm (my bed time).
PROS: It works. It makes me feel energized and a bit sharper. I also have a very low appitite and have to force myself to get 1500 calories per day.
CONS: Jacks my heart rate during cardio. Sometimes feel a little high and jittery. I am constipated (maybe not the HH, but it seems to be)?
RECOMMENDATIONS: Drink a TON of water. Don't take it within 7 hours of bed. ASSESS YOUR TOLERANCE!!! I can see why this is so hard on some people - it is VERY, VERY strong stuff. Eat right and exercise.

Reviewer: Heather from Dayton, OH
I have been taking this product on and off for a few months. I just really got serious about taking the pills in January. I do get a good rush of energy but I only take 2 pills a day in the evening before I work out. Since I have been taking the product I have toned up a whole lot. I have inches off of my waist as well as my thighs. I do get nausea with taking the product but it does subside. All-in-all I think the product works great as far as getting muscles. I can't really speak on weight loss because I don't diet but I can say that I haven't gained any weight while taking this product.
Pro's & Con'sApril 16, 2007
Reviewer: Bdn73g from Batesville Arkansas
I've been taking HH and regular Hydroxycut for years now, off and on. I use it mainly when I am working out and dieting. I experience good & bad things from it.
Pro's: Loss of appetite(also a con!), weight loss,the chiseled look in my muscles.
Con's: Loss of appetite(You have to eat to lose weight). Tremors, until I figured out I had to eat when I wasn't hungry. Eating more, anxiety, caffeine high when working up on the dosages. The cost for me is high. I really can't take it when I work out. I take it away from that time so I can deal with it. You definitely know when your on it.
I think It works better when you use it to lose weight only! I'm taking now in my program meant to add muscle, not lose weight. Damn that stubborn spare tire!!!
Taking HH with cardio and healthy, 5-6 meal per day diet will result in weight lose!!!
crapApril 15, 2007
Reviewer: Colin from PA
ive been taking it for a month with no results. Ive lost a couple pounds, but i am almost positive that HH wasnt the reason. i used to take it before workouts, but that only made me feel like my heart was going to stop. I got dizzy, and very nauseated. i thought that if i kept taking it, then my body would get used to it. BAD idea. it only got worse.
id stick to a high protein, low fat diet.
HYDROXYCUT HEADACHEApril 14, 2007
Reviewer: Sarah from San Antonio, Tx
I started taking Hydroxycut Hardcore about 5 weeks ago. I do not drink alcohol, coffee, do drugs or smoke, and I workout at least 3 times a week. I was following the directions and was doing fine until about a week later. I started to have extremely bad headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, anxiety, and chestpains. I stoped taking the pills and I had to go to the emergency room. I have been taking everything you could think of to stop the pain, but 1 month later I am still sick. I ONLY TOOK HYDROXYCUT HARDCORE FOR 1 WEEK! I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE, EVER!!!
Day 2 so farApril 12, 2007
Reviewer: Annette Bain from The Bahamas
I am a 44 year old female - I've lost 25 pounds last year but can't seem to lose anymore so I decided to try Hydroxicut hardcore, I work out 3 times a week an hour each time and watching what I eat. I just started hydroxi cut hard core for 2 days now - no side effects so far but funny enough use the bathroom more. 2 capsules per day seem to be working fine, no side effect so far, I will report more in the next week. I hope this works . My appetite has decrease a bit.
IS IT WORTH IT?April 12, 2007
Reviewer: RAMBONE from GEORGIA
I am taking the HH before I go to work and before I work out. I just got to the 3 pills 2x daily 3 days ago. I felt like some of the others did. Heartburn, but no dizzy head. I found that room temp water works better for me when I take the pills and after. About an hour into working out, it was time to do some crunches and WOW!!! I 200 in a row with pausing once to catch my breath. Like someone else said, its a fat burner not a muscle builder. You have to follow the directions if you plan to stay healthy. I am going to finish this bottle and then see what the results are. If I am not satisfied, then I am going to try the rip-fuel. GNC told me that the HH is better than the rip-fuel. We will see.

Reviewer: Someone from Toronto, ON, CAN
I'm only about a week in and when I was doing the 1 pill twice a day I was fine. Moved up to 2 pills once a day in the morning, was fine. Forgot them when I went away for 2 days so didn't take any, obviously.
When I took them again, took 2 once a day in the morn before working out. Then moved up to taking 3 twice a day...felt HORRIBLE! That is way too much for me! For about 2 or 3 hours through the day after taking my last 3 around noon, my body felt jittery, nervous, bad head aches and very anxious. Around 3 hour after, I was fine and calmed down. It was a very sketchy feeling! Not nice to have while at work. I cut back to 2 twice a day, still got a little anxious but not as bad. I am very close to returning the product at the store. I am going to give it one more try and take 1 pill in the morning and one at lunch. If I am still getting those nasty side effects, I will return it and HOPEFULLY get my $$ back.
I'm not sure if I'd reccommend this product to anyone, I have a lots few pounds and it does stop you from snacking but that's about it...

Here is how it is.....April 11, 2007
Reviewer: Angie from Kalispell, MT. USA
Another one...here is the thing, if you are feeling a little overweight and just think your going to take this stuff on a whim and not work out and follow the directions...your sadly mistaken. You will have the problems of sickness, jittery, and headaches. The headaches is from the caffeine. But if your serious about weight loss and you take it seriously by going to the gym 5-6 days a week then this is for you. Drink at least 150 oz of water. Drink it all day long like you have a thirst for it. That will take away the nausea and the stomach sickness. It happens. Thats why its called "HARDCORE"!!!! Not "I'm going to take it, sit on my butt, do nothing, then complain because the pills made me feel bad.
keys: Workout~Hardcore...for at least 1 1/2 everyday. or at least 5-6 days.
Drink tons of water
Don't overdose!!! Follow the directions!
If your serious about using this, then use it as it is intended. For working out..not sitting on your butt.

I have tried a few products...Stizm and Lipovox...because I heard they were quite good. They were not. They did little to nothing for me. I tried Hydroxycut Hardcore...two pills before I went to the gym...and it was ridiculous!!! I worked out for 3 hours and had so much energy and felt great after. Using other products, I crashed about 2 hours after. I still had energy with the Hardcore. I was also able to sleep at night...and it didn't leave me jittery. I love it.

Reviewer: Novadosed from Westchester NY
Well, to start off..Im a 36 yr old male 210 lbs 6ft tall, I started taking HH about 1 mo. ago, (on & off) because of side effects ( i'll get to those), Started off as recommended and increased to 3 pills 2x daily (too much for me) so went back down to 2 2x daily.
In the first few doses I felt as if I was high (which I havent done in 10 yrs..lol) no problem I figured the body has to adjust, 1 week later up to 2 pills and at this point just doing callistetics felt very energized through out the day, 2 weeks & didnt notice any results except for being very irritable, short temperd, and very aggressive towards others (not cool..lol).
Went to 3 pills 2 x a day... AND ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE... (What was I thinking, needless to say I stopped taking them for about a week). I get back on at 2 pills and now my body seems to be rejecting it (heres my effects): Dizzy disconected feeling, Anxiety, Naussea within minutes of taking, less Aggressive though, The taste comes back up from my stomach later in tha day even after eating and drinking water, No Jitters.
I started working out with elliptical and semi-light weight trainning and felt sick afterwards (nauseous and dizzy) and still no "noticeable" results.:(
My Suggestions: Do not dink coffee (I Have), Eat emmediately after taking, Drink PLENTY of Water ( I didnt, just becarefull on water consumption during work-out, it will make you nauseous) And DO NOT take after 3 pm if you plan to go to sleep by at least 10 pm...grrrrr, lol.
Well I still plan to continue taking 2 pills 2x (using my own advice) to see and hope it wasnt a waste of my money, health and time...Just my Opinion :)

I've been taking it for 3 weeks.. at first, I thought it was working fine, I was happy about it until I started getting really bad headaches and dizziness. It was so bad that I couldn't do anything.. then I started getting acnes all over my face and body.. I was so embarassed to go outside.. then I started getting chest pain, vomitting, chills at night where I couldn't sleep at all.. I started feeling so sick where I couldn't get off my bed for 3 days.. I never been this sick in my life.. Last night I was rushed to ER.. I had a high fever. the doctor says it's not the Hydroxycut but after doing some researches on it, I do think it is from that.. Now it's been a little bit more than a week since the last time I took it and I am still sick and has acnes all over my face & body.. I regret taking it.. :-(
So far, so good but alot of idiots take HH.April 08, 2007
Reviewer: OuTKa$t187 from Draper, UT USA
I have been on HH for three days now. My workout consist of 50 minutes on an eliptical Mon-Sat and 100 situps on the same days, on Sunday I rest. Been doing this workout for about a month now without HH. I have been trying to lose my beer gut. Weight wasn't exactly melting off so I decided to see if the hype was worth it. Since I started taking HH (one pill a day twice a day LIKE THE DIRECTIONS SAY TO START AT!) I have lost 6 lbs and already an inch off my waist. Pretty impressed but like I said, only 3 days so far. I'll report back when I finish the first bottle (I have no plans to go up to the three pills twice a day, I will up to 2 twice a day but thats it). Also to the 15-17 year olds that are taking this shit, your parents should be kicked in the ^%@#$ as well for being stupid. Your body's metabolism is sky high as it is and you don't need a fat-burning supplement or any other supplement for that matter doing major damage to your liver and kidneys. It even specifically states on the back of the bottle that those under 18 years old should NOT take this product and whoever sold it to you should be arrested. Word to the wise, READ THE DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU PUT ANY SUBSTANCE INTO YOUR BODY! All I got to say, will report back in a month with my personal results, but so far so good with no side effects because I was smart enough to follow directions.

Reviewer: Mr. Concerned. from AK, USA
this stuff is scary... ive taken it over a week, and have lost about 10 pounds-this is great. what isn't great are the symptoms that come along with it: i have this wierd headache that sort of comes n goes, its like a sickening sort of tension headache. the heartburn sucks... this stuff is an obvious irritant-hence maybe the weightloss? i experienced what i thought was a panic attack yesterday-which was sorta terrifying. im going to wene myselff off this stuff to see if these symptoms improve, if so-the stuffs history. best of luck if you take it, my suggestion is not to. excersize.
the stuff does work tho... no doubt about that, but it comes at a cost.
Not that greatApril 07, 2007
Reviewer: Jonny from texas
After hearing a lot of hype about this product, I decided to try it myself. I followed the directions to a t drinking water all day and working out everyday and I saw little results. It does help suppress your appetite a bit but maybe its because of al the water you have to drink?? I felt energized in the morning but not in the evening even after second dose. I ended up gving anout a third of the bottle away to someone who decided they would like to try it out.
college kidApril 04, 2007
Reviewer: Junkyard from dirty jerz
i'm a senior in college who spent his junior year doing nothing but drinking beer, ripping shots, and eating horrible foods and the results of my actions were horrible on my body. In highschool i wrestled at 145 pounds and i quite literally was "solid muscle." It was sad for me to look in the mirror and realize that i drank myself overweight. This is what i did, I started running last summer about 5 times a week and dieting religiously. although i did lose signifigant weight and i was feeling better about myself I was not losing some of the oblique (love handle) fat that had been plaguing me. about three weeks ago me and my girlfriend went to GNC and i bought a bottle of HH to see what would happen. I figured it really couldnt hurt if the commercials were right. I have to tell you that since ive been on the product I have woken up every single morning skinner than i was the night before and this is no joke. My stomach is getting defined i can see muscles trying to pop through; perhaps a six pack in the near future? This product deffinatly works if you use it with proper exercize and combine it with a sensible diet.

Reviewer: At from Goldsboro, NC USA
I have been taking HH for 1 week and 4 days and i have lost 6 pounds and it has givin me a lot of energy and it also curbs my appettite a whole lot. I am also on a very low carb and high protien diet. The bad thing is that it gives me jittery hands and chest pains and makes me feel naucious and and makes my heart race and pound very hard. But if you are willing to deal with the side effects then it is a very good product and works well with a good diet.
Hydroxycut hardcore: Great ProductApril 03, 2007
Reviewer: Peter T from Pasadena, CA
I purchased Hydroxycut about 3 months ago.
I want to be up front and say that I use this fatburner as a stimulant to get me moving/motivated to hit to the gym.
I have recently lost ~30 lbs, and I feel this product certainly contributed to my success. But I also have been working out a lot too, and working on my diet.
I will take one pill as soon as a wake up, which right up front helps me control my appetite throughout the day. I will then take 2 scoops of my protein supplment with water, which is my breakfast meal-replacement.
Before I know I want to go to the gym (like an hr before), I will take one pill, and then take another one 30 min later(30 until the gym). when it is time to hit the gym, I have a lot of energy, and I am truly motivated to get to the gym, and work hard.
I only use the product as an energy booster. I never go over 4 pill each day, and usually do 2-3.
I think this product does a great job on giving extra energy to keep you from being lazy. I feel like this has been the best fat burner I have taken since Ephedra was banned.
Liek I have mentioned before, I take fatburners as they are. They are a source of energy boost. Taking fatburner alone will not hellp you loose weight. It is the energy & mindstate where I think they help people the most. This one certainly gives you that extra boost I need so I consistently exercise.
READ:::::ITS A BIG GAMBLE!!!!!!!!!April 02, 2007
Reviewer: Not natural from NC
Depending on what your body is like, HH will work in different ways. Lets keep it real here. I work out 5 days a week for football in the off season and started HH bout a week ago. Well, the days that I worked out everything was fine. When it got to the weekend, I didnt do any heavy exercise and all of a sudden, I GOT THE WORST DIARRHEA AND GAS I HAVE EVER HAD OR WITNESSED. SOMETHING IN THIS PILL IS REALLY MESSING WITH MY INSIDES. So, I know most people don't work out 7 days a week so if your like me don't gamble with your money and buy HH, just diet and exercise. A diet doesn't have to be hardcore, just don't eat crap food. This is exactly what I did:
day 1: took 1 pill twice a day 30 min. before food and not within 5 hours of bedtime just like the thing says. Everything is fine
day 2: same thing
day 3: same thing, already lost 5 pounds. wow this is looking good. By the end of the day I get slight headaches. It is friday night.
day 4: saturday, I take the first 2 pill dose because after day 3 you graduate to 2 pills twice a day. Get diarrhea from hell. Headaches in just 1 part of my haed like a nail and hammer. symptoms are on and off.
day 5: everyhting is fine. Take a regular #2. take my dose not yet realizing the pills are the cause. symptoms come back.
I don't know what to do now. Im pissed because I spent my money, its almost beach season, and my pills make my insides go haywire.The pills smell funny. You can see stuff floating inside them. Each one is burgundy with a printing that says "hydroxycut hardcore" on it. They are about the size of the tip of your finger to the first joint but not that wide.
If your friend has some pills, take one of his and don't exercise or eat heavy. If you get symptoms DONT BLOW YOUR MONEY ON THIS CRAP.
If you decide to anyway, drink a loooooooot of water
well thats my story.

I have taken for about a month and have lost weight. You have to realized everyone's body is different and will respond differently to vitamins, excercise, food, and fat burners. This is good for me, but every once in awhile I do feel a little light headed from it. I would also say try not to drink too much beer while on product, it really makes hangerovers worse. All in all a good product, but it doesn't perform miracles, you have to put the work into it to see results

For the most part, this is an all around good product. I will def recommend this to anyone who is serious about losing weight and getting toned. It worked for me.

I never really understood why i blacked out after a night of drinking until i was done taking this product (HH). Remember to stay hydrated the entire time you are taking HH. Later

I lost 20 lbs in two months when I used it. Just follow the directions and you should be fine. If you can't handle too much caffeine then don't use this product, it will give you a headache and what not.

i lost a little over 20 pounds and realy got toned, while working out about 2-3 times a week. I felt so good about my self and I was very suprised the product worked, and worked quickly. Although it worked, i did have side effects. I always was very sweaty, which made me very self consious. I always had so much energy, which i liked because i don't always get propper hours of sleep due to schedule, but at the same time when i had no problem falling asleep. I definetly would reccomend this product if you are really looking to lose weight.
Great ProductMarch 26, 2007
Reviewer: Anonymous from USA
What can I say.... I've been on the product for a little over a week now and it works great. I've dropped 8lbs in a week. Start weight 164 and now 156 and still losing. Mostly water weight but that's tremendous especially for a women. I would agree that you absolutely have to maintain a good diet and exercise program as the product will not work by itself.
As far as side effects go I got really jittery for the first two days of and then for the first two days everytime I increased my dosage. When I hit three a day I felt really disorented. I also felt like I could run a marathon with all the energy I had. I would say that 2 pills two times a day is fine for me. Also I recommend that if your body weight dictates to drink 80 ounces of water a day, DOUBLE IT!!! It helps to get rid of the jitters and keeps away the red poop. My boyfriend said it made me a more happier person in the morning....I guess it effects everyones moods differently but definately no reason to take 6 a day. You will feel like your in that movie CRANK....however, after I worked out hard I felt like I wanted to crash. I think that's the only way to calm down at night.
THE BEST FAT BURNING PILL I HAVE EVER TAKEN!!!March 23, 2007
Reviewer: Stella from Melbourne, Australia
I started taking this a few days ago on recommendation from my boyfriend whose friends have had it. I mainly wanted it for energy when going to the gym but also have put on a tiny amount of weight lately and wanted to shift it.
I have had NO SIDE EFFECTS!!! It has given me so much ENERGY, and it has lifted my mood so much, I am constantly chatty and happy. I just weighed myself and I thought the scaled were lying. Considering it has only been 3 days, I have only been to gym twice, and not really changed my diet dramatically, I have lost several kgs (not sure what that is in pounds). I attribute that to the amazing energy it has given me, as lately I have been so lethargic all the time. I have used heaps of fat burners before, both over the counter and prescription and I would rate this one the best by far, even though it has only been a few days. Oh and I've only taken 1 capsule, twice per day, 30 mins before a meal, I don't think I will increase the dosage, consideing how small in weight and height I am anyway.

I'm 24 and 5 months away from my wedding. I got a personal trainer so I can look the way I really want to in my dress. I started taking HH 4 weeks ago. It does give me energy, but it also makes me vomit at least once per day. I get hot flashes and feel shaky and anxious sometimes. It takes FOREVER to get my heart rate down after I do cardio. I really hate the vomiting, but I'm willing to give it one more week and see if there are any changes before I decide if I should throw it out or not.

Reviewer: Faustini from Mexico... from Mexico
First of all, if you usually drink coffee, sodas or beer, stop doing it inmediately. There is conflict when talkin' HH...I noted difference... I have been taking HH for 1 week and a half and results were impresive, never thought I would get these results. I used to run every day for 6 months and never lost a pound, however I was eating more (no increase of weight, though)...HH decreases my appretitte a lot, I do not feel like eating anything, but need to have yogurt, fiber stuff, and so on in order to keep healthy and my body going on, if I do not do so my stomach hurts. At the beginning I became very very agressive, my mood would change with no explanation, and my heart beat rate was quite high...so I began drinking lots of water, and situation improved...I sweat more...when I smell some kind of meals (usually ones with fat) I feel nausea... I believe that the closest you are to your 18 years old, the most careful you need to be, because your metabolism is quite high at that age and your discipline's not that excellent... If you feel intense side effects, you may 1) decrease dosage, 2) stop taking it on afternoons, 3) taking it only with meals , 4) increase your water consumtion 5) increase work out intensity 6) or you may give them away and begin a diet and more work out, but very probable you will see improvements in longer term, or very long term ... USE THIS ONLY IF YOU WANT TO LOSE FAT VERY FAST WITH DECENT INTENSITY OF WORK OUT AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING...WITH DISCIPLINE...Thanks, hope this helps...
