    Here's some facts on your Hydroxycut. Every statement is backed by official documents or statements from company or government officials.

    It pretty much applies to all weight related supplements. Almost all manufacturers have been cited and fined.

    Okay so I'm going to manufacture a product called Hydroxycut and say that it causes weight loss.

    In 2003 I am going to get sued and lose for making the false claims that my product is a 'clinically proven fat burner"

    Then in May of 2009 the FDA is going to come in and allow me to shut down for making unsubstantiated claims again and to repay $30 million to customers I sold the unproven product, including the ones with liver damage and the family of the one person that DIED from using the product.

    I"m going to lay low for a bit and "reformulate" a product that now contains nothing more than herbs, spices, and mostly caffeine.

    Now in July of 2010 the FTC is going to fine me $5.5 million for claiming my other products not only cause weight loss but also treat or prevent colds, flu, allergies, and hay fever.

    And yet current law still allows me to operate.

    Now after 6 months I'm going to launch a huge ad blitz with a lot of "trick" language that lets me continue to sell a product with absolutely no clinical evidence or documentation.

    What could go wrong with this product?

    Why, because people are desperate to lose weight and there will always be someone there to sell them a "quick fix remedy" that doesn't work. The $60 billion weight loss industry is just too lucrative and profitable for these guys to stay away.

    If any of this stuff worked, why would 2/3 of US adults be overweight or obese?

    We would be lined up without having to spend a dime on advertising.

    These supplement manufacturers are using humans (you) as guinea pigs with these unapproved products.

    Under current law, as long as no one gets sick or dies, or they don't get fined or shut down, they will continue to make and peddle this crap. They don't care whether it works or not as long as they get your money.

    Possible side effects

    Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)

    Heart complications

    Jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes)

    Kidney problems

    Unexplained headaches and dizziness

    Excessive fatigue

    Loss of appetite

    Restlessness, anxiety

    Nausea, vomiting

    First of all, good news for you! You can easily slim down and much faster than any other age group as you have the highest metabolism rate. You only need to note three things; Diet, Exercise and Motivation.

    On Diet, you need the most nutrient during this period. What you eat will determine your health and physics for the rest of your adulthood. That means, if you don’t slim down during this period, you are likely to get fat always in your adulthood. Also you will likely to be sick easily for the rest of your life. You need to have a balance diet with the correct food like protein, fats, vitamins, etc. (Ladies, if you eat too little, you are likely to have small breast and butt for life). You can’t to be choosy on food. Refer to the blog at the end if you don’t know what you need to eat.

    Exercise is at this period, you are able to lose weight fast and develop your muscle too. Exercise every other day for 30 ~ 45 minutes, 3 times a week. Left one day for rest. Cardio exercise like jogging swimming, dancing, aerobics, etc are good to reduce fat fast. Hula loops are good for tummy; others exercise that targets at different part of the body can be refer to the blog at the end of the page.

    Lastly, is your will to slim down. You can all set goals to lose weight. But if you did not have the will or you left the goals unchecked. You are unlikely to succeed although you are in the high metabolism group. Also at the blog, you can find ways how to encourage yourself to achieve your goal setting.

    I used to be 185 lbs, I manage to lose weight to 125 lbs in a short time and maintain a healthy 133 lbs for many years.

    Believe throughout yourself. How often have you respected someone and their achievements then instantly thought, ‘I’d love to achieve that, but I just can’t. ’ Don’t limit your achievements because of your thoughts. You can do whatever you want to do.
