  • Do not use it. I did and I regret it. I was eating healthy and exercising, and wanted to supplement both by using the hydroxycut. It causes sever dehydration, even if used properly and it can lead to heart problems.

  • I watched the young girls in my office take it and they were so stinkin' nervous all the time, we could tell when they were taking it and when they were not. I decided to take something like it (this was about 5 years ago) and it made my nervous system so jumpy that even my eyes jittered. I felt like it could have given me a heart attack if I had continued to take it. I don't think its a good idea. I guess thats why they took aphedra off the market?

  • I know some women that have taken it. It gave them anxiety and chest pains. Yeah..they did see results, but they said the side effects out-weighed the pro's. I say...buy the "ABS diet" or "Clean Eating" book and exercise the old fashion way.

  • I have taken it, the older version is the one that worked. I also tried the new version with hoodia and it didn't help one bit. I bought the green tea diet pills for like 7 bucks at walmart last year and they seemed to help curb my appetite.
    If you are looking for pills, look for a local weight loss clinic or weight loss doctor, and they can give you stuff that works. It will cost about 65 a bottle, but at least you are paying 65 for something that will work, instead of 30 that won't.

  • Do not take that. I worked with a lady who took it and she passed out. Bad stuff.
