I am not overweight by any means, but I could loose a few pounds here and there. Especially after the holidays and vacations. I'm overall a healthy person. I eat healthy, go to the gym, and lift weights on a daily basis. But it's hard to loose weight when you aren't too far away from your goal. Sometimes exercise and diet don't cut it. With that being said Hydroxycut really worked for me. I lost about 15-20 pounds with this product. I've tried several Hydroxycut products, like Hydroxycut for women, Hydroxycut Hardcore elite. My favorite is the Hydroxycut hardcore elite by muscletech. It's great for people who are into weightlifting and body building. Also great for your average everyday person as well. The only disclaimer I am going to have is that this will not work if you are eating sloppy and not going to the gym. It only works if you exercise and eat well. This is a great product for an all over lifestyle change. You can see some great results with this product. It only took me a couple weeks to start seeing amazing results. AND THE WEIGHT STAYS OFF, unlike other products that didn't work for me and made me sick (like zantrex 3). DISCLAIMER: Although I would highly recommend hydroxycut, if you have any health issues I would stray away or talk to your doctor before you use a product like this. If you drink a lot of caffeine or alcohol I would also stray away from this product. As this does contain caffeine and suggests not to use other caffeine with it. Overuse of these products can make you sick or hospitalize you if you abuse them. If you have heart problems I would not suggest using this. Just like any product there are cons, but I do recommend this with all that being said.
