Well where to start...... GNC Burn 60, Is a weight loss pill and its a pretty good product. Although it may be a bit more expensive than some better weight loss pill/products it still has pretty decent value. I started my diet origianlly with Slim Fast and lost about 65 lbs in 6 months which was great, but then I turned to GNC Burn 60 and I have lost an additional 33 lbs in only 2 months which is even better results than the slim fast. I was psyched about this product and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to lose a substantial amount of weight in a little amount of time, but if your looking to lose a small amount of weight over a long period of time I would recommend the Slim Fast..... GNC Burn 60 is a wonderful product and I have now used it for 2 months and I have lost a good amount of weight on it. I think I want to lose about another 25 lbs and I figure with this product I should be able to do it in a month or so.

Like so many products out there, Burn 60 seems to affect everyone differently. I started taking it 5 days ago on the reccomendation of a friend who loved it.  First of all, I have to say ALWAYS follow the instructions when putting any pill into your body!  I noticed a few reviews that mentioned adverse affects when they take it in the afternoon or evening.  It says on the bottle to take 2 pills before breakfast.

As far as my experience, this pill has made me feel very naseous.  I've yet to be able to bring myself to work out because I feel like I just want to vomit.  However I do feel more awake and alert than before.  The second side effect I noticed was mood swings.  I had been in a great mood up until I began taking Burn 60.  I had lost 15 pounds and just got a job.  On my 2nd day taking Burn 60 I started feeling depressed.  I initially attributed it to one of my natural lows that I am prone to.  But for the past 2 days I've been really angry which is so unlike me; I'm an extremely passive, mellow person.  I haven't been this irritable since my Metabolife days back in high school.  I really think it's related to the Burn 60.

One of the reviewers wrote that side effects stopped on the 2nd week.  So, I'm pushing through this for another week.  If it still feel bad then it's bye bye Burn 60.

      Kick Start Your Diet With GNC Burn 60

      By 

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Comments about GNC Burn 60:

      A long time ago someone gave me the best piece of advice about losing weight. "You didn't get fat in two weeks, don't expect to lose it all in two weeks". All too often people look for the quick route to lose weight and that can work against your body in the long run. Thermogenic products raise your core temperature and can stimulate your metabolism to help you shed stored fat but when taken incorrectly they can cause your metabolism to go in to a panic mode and cause you to store more calories and carbohydrates. Burn 60 is one of the stronger over the counter products I have tried; I didn't experience stomach upset or profuse sweating but I did have the jitters and shakes the first couple of times that I used it.

      The suggested dose is 2 tablets but not everyone is going to need to start out with that dosage. This is what I personally consider a "strong" thermogenic (fat burning) product and it could be too strong for some people. A 2 tablet dose is enough to keep me going for about five hours but the crash afterward can be massive so if you need to work an eight hour shift you might feel this wearing off a few hours before you are done. I would not exceed a 2 tablet dose per day; your body needs time to recuperate from it and if you keep throwing these back with a cup of coffee eventually you are not going to see any results from them or feel any type of energy kick when you take them.

      Burn 60 contains some powerful stimulants so if you have any issues with your circulatory system or heart you need to check with your doctor before you start using this. It contains black tea leaves, guarana seed extract, ginger root, dill weed extract and their proprietary blend. If you get the jitters from regular coffee chances are you are going to have the same side effect from this when you start taking it. I do not take this every day so I don't worry about my body building up a tolerance to it but that can happen if you take it every day. Exceeding the suggested dose will not make this work better or give you faster results. Regardless of whether you are caffeine sensitive or not, taking this in the evening isn't recommended because it can cause sleeplessness, restlessness and extreme irritability.

      Effectiveness
      It can help to stimulate your metabolism but without proper nutrition and exercise you are not going to see any results.

      Side Effects
      Side effects can include sweating, jitters and shaking, irritability, restlessness and loss of appetite.

      Please never stop making this!

      Comments about GNC Burn 60:

      I have taken Burn 60 as a daily supplement for 15+ years. Before starting to take any energy supplement, I did a ton of research so I could avoid any products that have possible health concerns. The ingredients in Burn 60 have been used for thousands of years as natural health remedies, don't cause side effects, and are safe for long-term use. The Burn 60 tables give me energy throughout the day and curb my appetite. It has really been a miracle for me as my natural energy level is practically comatose. It has taken the edge off my cravings so that I can lose weight with sustainable life changes -- by eating less, eating healthy real foods, and exercising regularly.

      The caffeine is a fat soluble form, which means it metabolizes slowly to provide extra energy throughout the whole day, rather than just a quick boost from water soluble forms of caffeine (such as found in coffee) that don't last. I cannot take them after noon or I won't sleep well. If I need to stay up late to party with friends, I can take a quarter pill with supper to stay awake.

      Dosing needs to be determined experimentally for each person. If you are sensitive, take half a pill for a week, or longer if that works for you. Boost it to a full pill for a day to see how you feel and if that works, take one pill for a week or longer. Take the minimum amount that works for you until the effects start fading and bump up by half or one pill depending on how sensitive you are. Some people may not feel anything from two pills right away, if they have a lot of body mass (may need to talk 3-4 pills a day), or are used to pumping themselves full of caffeine. You can try to wean yourself off of other forms of caffeine, replacing them with Burn 60 over the course of several weeks.

      I cycle the pill dosage to maintain potency despite acclimation -- I take 1 pill a day for a month then 2 pills a day for a month, then take 3-7 days off, then repeat. A bit complicated, but a small price to pay for the results.

      No I don't work for them, I just want everyone to love Burn 60 so they never stop making it! =)

      Side Effects
      With proper dosing, side effects are minimal.

      Dont believe the hype

      By 

      from Ellerslie GA

      Comments about GNC Burn 60:

      I previously tried the GNC Burn 60 and was super disappointed at the results. This is nothing more than an over the counter good for nothing diet pill. First of all the GNC Burn 60 gave me the shakes which I hate. They are supposed to help you burn fat but I saw no results whatsoever. I have come to the conclusion that diet and exercise are the only true way to lose weight. Not only does the GNC Burn 60 not work it is very expensive as well so when you purchase this product you lose a lot of money in the process. This did give somewhat of an energy boost but it came with the shakes and ended up making me feel bad rather than good. It kind of gave me a depressed feeling. Do not waste your money. I would definitely not advise anyone to use the GNC Burn 60 pills. I believe that they think because the caffeine gives you a little pick me up that you will be tricked into thinking it works. Do not believe it. Just drink a cup of coffee and you will feel the same.

      Not worth it!!

      from USA

      Comments about GNC Burn 60:

      This product didn't do antyhing for me. The pills made me jittery and nervouse because of guaran seed and the ginger was in a big quantity and upset my stomach. I took it the way you are supposed to take it according to the instructions and it never made me any thinner! I'll never take it again and I advise you to stay away from it and all other UNREGULATED suppliments!

      Effectiveness
      I didn't lose any weight really and it made me feel weird. It promises high loss of fat but I never saw it. I am not really much overweight to begin with so maybe it is better if you are a lot over weight. It might be effective as a pep pill if you are sleepy.

      Side Effects
      JItters and upset stomach at the same time, it's no picnic!!

      Comments about GNC Burn 60:

      this product was recommended by the store clerck and I was hesitant. However the first week i had a lot of side effects but also take prescription meds, so I continued.  Now I am in the second week and have hardly no side effects and increased energy and my mood has been awesome.  I think this is worth the initial side effects.  I am also starting to notice my clothes are fitting much better in only 2 weeks

      gnc burn 60-don't waste your money

      By 

      from Great Lakes, IL

      Comments about GNC Burn 60:

      I tried it because I was desperate for a weight loss solution and didn't want to spend a lot of money. I read the reviews on gnc's online store about this product and figured I would give it a try. Big mistake. I admit, it made me sweat a bit more during workouts but that's it. I didn't loose a pound. My energy level did not increase. You have to take 1 to two HUGE brown pills twice a day. I bought it and was so excited to try it figuring that it was going to be awesome and I would at least loose a little bit of weight. Perhaps it might work better for someone else. I didn't even feel any appetite suppression what soever. In fact I seemed to want to eat more. I work out everyday for an hour first thing in the morning. I would take the recommended dosage 30 min before my workout. After a 1.5 to 2 hours of cardio I was tired for the rest of the day. The pills provided no energy boost, no appetite suppression, no weight loss. Overall, it was just a waste of money in my opinion.

      This pill really works!

      from Cleveland, OH

      Comments about GNC Burn 60:

      I have tried many diet pills in the past, but I must say that Burn 60 really works! I felt very energized, even after workouts and in my opinion the weight loss was fat, not muscle. Plus I liked that it left me without jitteriness of ill effects. This is diet pill I reccommend to my family and friends!
