Found in over 70 countries, Hydroxycut has quickly become a popular diet pill. Used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular workout regime, it is quite effective in aiding in weight loss. Whether the results are solely contributed to Hydroxycut or the health diet and exercise regime remains unknown. However, many dieters continue to turn to this diet pill.
Getting its name from hydroxycitric acid, Hydroxycut boasts of its ability to increase metabolism, maintain blood sugar levels and suppress appetite, thus curbing caloric intake. Studies have proven hydroxycitric acid's ability to stimulate the liver to release greater amounts of glucose into blood which suppresses the appetite. It's important to note that these results were only proven in mice, not humans.
The most obvious claimed benefit of taking Hydroxycut is weight loss. Claimed benefits include improved stamina, increased metabolism, increased energy, the ability to do stronger workouts and decreased appetite. At the end of a three-week training period, a study at the University of Wisconsin observed an actual increase in body fat percentage by males who used Hydroxycut versus males who did not. MuscleTech, the manufacturers of Hydroxycut, and Dr. Nick Evans both recommend Hydroxycut in combination with proper diet and exercise to lose weight.
While the side effects of using Hydroxycut are more noticeable in the beginning stages, the degree to which one experiences side effects varies from individual to individual. Some of the most common side effects of Hydroxycut are increased blood pressure, feeling restless or jittery, dizziness, loss of appetite, increased sweating, headaches and increased heart rate.
While Hydroxycut has proven to be a successful weight loss aid for many people, disputes still arise concerning its weight loss ability since it is typically coupled with a healthier diet and an exercise program. Typically, results are noticeable within 10 days.
To maximize effectiveness, Hydroxycut should be taken 30 to 60 minutes before meals. Two capsules should be taken with 8 ounces of water, three times a day. Do not take within five hours of bedtime. During the first three days of usage, only take one capsule before each meal until your body acclimates to Hydroxycut.
Exercise and Nutrition
Even though Hydroxycut does not specifically outline a diet or exercise program to follow, for maximum results you should maintain a healthy diet and a moderate exercise program.
