hydroxycut banned ! gasp.....

i just got a call from a friend of mine who was going to buy his monthly dose of hydroxycut only to find out it's been banned ! i'm not sure how many of you get jacked up on this stuff daily {like i do} but you might want to buy all you can before it's gone.

i don't really think it is a good idea to "buy all you can before its gone"....
unless, of course, you like liver failure.

Wow. The first time I took it I puked... it was awful.

I should go see if GNC pulled them off the shelf. They like to lock up Hydroxycut.

I don't get why you'd stock up on something that is shown to be dangerous to your body and health? Of course, many smoke and we know what that does to one's health...people are sure interesting!

I tried Hydroxycut about 10 years ago. Canada had banned the American version, but I got it from someone. I felt like my heart was seriously going to pound its ass right out of my chest. I am not surprised this shit is banned either. Try cocaine instead, I am sure it is better for you.

The FDA really needs to do more research BEFORE a product like this comes out on the market, not AFTER millions of people are using it

I'm Canadian so I could easily missed it if the rules changed, but the FDA does not monitor and approve supplements. That's why diet pills that don't work are allowed to be on the market. The claims they make are ludicrous, and if they had to go through clinical trials to be approved, most would never make it to the shelves.

Ha ha. I took it once in high school. WOW. Good thing I didn't have school the next day because I did not sleep.

oh there is no question that this stuff is nuts. it's nick named hydroxycrack around here for exactly that reason. personally, i've never had an issue with it, it's just my morning coffee. one of the guys at our local GNC told me about a girl who was taking 20 per day. i have the oddest feeling people like that are what led to this. just like they did with ephedrine, and with steroids and etc...

abuse always seems to get government attention in america

personally, i think if someone is retarded enough to take the whole bottle at once, well, you get what you get.

Just curious, which diet pills have you all tried? And which of them gave you the best experience?

I've tried a few (just free samples when I find them; I don't take any regularly currently) but the one I stuck with the longest was Natrol Slenderite. It's not a stimulant really (I mean, I think it has a bit of caffeine, but not ridiculous amounts like all those other pills) but it interferes with carbohydrate absorption. I was the smallest I've ever been when I was on it and I still ate a good amount (thanks to our enabler of a sorority house chef); then again, I was also exercising harder due to better equipment at the gyms there.

honestly i'm not sure any of them do much at all. if you look at what is effective, like the p90x program, it's the workouts ! steroids work because they alter your hormones. these diet pills? all they really do is wake you up and might curb your appetite a little.

My friend took his empty bottle to Vitamin Shoppe and they gave him $50 bucks store credit. I guess those stores get reimbursed or something.

Yeh, try Vitamin Shoppe or GNC. If you even have the receipts they give you cash back.
