Hydroxycut...



Has anyone ever used this to help lose weight? I heard they were recalled or something, is it just certain kinds or ALL of them?? Does anyone know? Do you know WHY they were recalled??

  • Hmmm... I don't know about taking pills to lose weight. It has always sounded very appealing to me, but it freaks me out at the same time. My DH's cousin's wife died from taking some kind of diet pills. My DH says that he'd rather have me be a bit heavier, but alive. LOL! I have about 4 pounds to go to pre-pregnancy weight. I suggest that you drink a lot of water and cut back on sugar. I honestly that has helped me a lot. I don't exercise. I used to take my kids for walks in the double stroller... let me tell you that's a workout and a half. It's too cold to do that now. I'll start up again once it gets warmer.
    Hope this helps a bit.

  • I took them once, it just made me feel like I needed to get up and DO something, kinda jittery. No, there is a new one out, the old one was recalled.
