Full-Time Fat Burner

Full-Time Fat Burner is a non-prescription diet pill that claims to be a premium fat burner that works fast for men and women. It has been designed to work with the user’s body to quickly burn stubborn belly fat.

This product supposedly increases metabolism within 30 minutes, at which point the user should notice a boost in energy as their metabolism begins to burn the fat that is stored on their body. It is also said on the product’s Amazon sales page (an official site didn’t exist for this product when this review was created) that the pills provide sustained boosted energy that lasts all day long. It claims that because the energy doesn’t wear off, there aren’t any sudden energy crashes.

Full-Time Fat Burner was designed for individuals who want energy that lasts all day and those who want a boost before their workout. If it does actually provide an energy benefit, this product may help you power through your day and stick to your workout routine, especially if you already follow a healthy calorie-reduced diet and a regular exercise plan.

When this review of Full-Time Fat Burner was written, each serving size (1 capsule) contained Niacin (10 mg) and the FT Burn Proprietary Blend (223 mg): Guaraná (seed), Yohimbe (bark) Extract (yohimbine), Green tea (leaf), Cinnamon (twig), Greater Galangal (rhizome), Gugglesterones E & Z, Naringin, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, Asian ginseng (root).

The first ingredient in this fat burning supplement formula is guarana, which is an herb and potent stimulant. It contains about twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee seeds. Yohimbe is also a stimulant and there is caffeine in green tea. In other words, Full-Time Fat Burner is likely to give you a mental boost and may help to energize you. Still, don’t expect any miracles. Even if this product can boost your fat burning capabilities (although this is not proven), this doesn’t mean fat will magically melt off your body. At best, it will assist your current weight management strategies.

Moreover, although the Amazon page for Full-Time Fat Burner states that this dietary supplement has no side effects, this is an untrue statement, every dietary supplement carries a risk of side effects. It doesn’t matter how “safe” the ingredients may be. Simply because something comes from an herb, does not make it safe.

More to the point, this diet pill contains caffeine, which means that there is a risk of stimulant-related side effects, at the very least, such as sleeplessness, restlessness, jitters, anxiety, headache, heart palpitations, etc.

It’s a good idea to first consult with your healthcare provider before you take this or any other dietary supplement for weight loss purposes.

Xenadrine Ultimate

Increasing energy, focus and metabolism is what Xenadrine Ultimate claims to do for those who take it. Marketed as being powerful for weight loss, this dietary supplement is said to be an effective thermogenic that contains a key ingredient which helps to provide you with boosted mental focus and energy.

The key ingredient in the Xenadrine Ultimate formula is Robusta Coffee Bean Extract. More commonly known in the over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss industry as Green Coffee Bean, this herb has been touted for its ability to aid in metabolism boosting and helping to increase fat loss.

The official product page also sites a study involving this herb in which some study participants, who also followed a low-calorie diet, lost an average of just over 10 pounds in 60 days taking Robusta Coffee Bean. In spite of this study, and others that have been conducted on this ingredient, there is still no scientific proof that taking green coffee bean can lead to weight loss.

With that in mind, other ingredients in the Xenadrine Ultimate formula are: Caffeine Anhydrous, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Garcinia Fruit Extract, L-Theanine, Spearmint Leaf Extract, Autumn Olive Fruit Extract, Ashwagandha Root and Leaf Extract.

Essentially, what this reveals is that the product contains potent stimulants (e.g. caffeine) and unproven substances often used in OTC weight loss formulas (e.g. garcinia cambogia, ashwagandha, etc.). When it comes to the science of losing weight, stimulants can help support a person’s efforts to be more active, leading to more calories burned, but this would require action on a dieter’s part.

To put it more plainly, there is no guarantee that you will achieve the weight loss results you want (or any weight loss) when taking this product. Moreover, while you are likely to receive an energy boost and may experience increased mental focus due to the caffeine in this product, these benefits come with the risk of certain unpleasant side effects like sleeplessness, restlessness, anxiety, digestive upset, headache, rapid heartbeat, etc.

Prior to taking this medication you should first speak with your doctor to make certain it is a safe and viable option for your health and wellbeing. What’s more, if you do decide to use Xenadrine Ultimate, be sure to follow the directions and assess your tolerance before taking the maximum dose.

For instance, for the first 3 days it is recommended that you take only 1 capsule twice per day, 20 – 60 minutes before your two main meals. From day 4 onward, if you are tolerating the pills well, you can then proceed to take 2 capsules per day, 30 – 60 minutes before your two main meals. Regardless of the appropriate dose you take, avoid taking these pills 5 hours before bed to prevent insomnia.

You could purchase Xenadrine Ultimate on the official product page for $24.99 when this review was written.


PhenRED is a non-prescription weight loss aid that claims to be a clinically proven and powerful thermogenic formula designed to suppress appetite and burn fat. It is the “most aggressive formula available” that provides maximum weight loss, a powerful energy rush, extreme appetite suppression and enhanced focus and mood.

The ingredients in PhenRed include the following: Trimethylxanthine, Theobromine, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Beta-Phenylethylamine HCL, Synephrine HCL.

Users are directed to take 2 capsules on an empty stomach after waking up or as directed by their doctor. No other instructions are provided. For instance, it is not known if you should wait a certain length of time before eating, etc.

All the ingredients in PhenRED are stimulants. Trimethylxantihine is also known as caffeine anhydrous. It works on the central nervous system and it has been proven to increase mental alertness and focus. Some research has also found that it can boost metabolism and increase fat burning when it is taken prior to physical activity. It may even suppress appetite in some people. That being said, there is no solid clinical proof that taking caffeine will lead to measurable weight loss.

The other stimulants in the formula, such as synephrine (a natural occurring stimulant found in bitter orange), work to help enhance the effects of caffeine. While this may sound like a benefit, there are many risks associated with the caffeine and synephrine combo. The reason is that while synephrine enhances the beneficial effects of caffeine, it also enhances the unpleasant side effects, such as insomnia, restlessness, headache digestive upset, nervousness, anxiety rapid heart and breathing rate, ringing in the ears etc.

Worse still, the FDA warns that combining these two stimulants can actually lead to serious adverse effects, which may even be life threatening, even in healthy individuals. These effects include fainting, high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack.

PhenRED is not safe for everyone to take, including women who are pregnant or nursing. This product has been designed for adults (18 years of age and older). You are advised to consult your physician if you have a pre-existing medical condition prior to taking this product. It would also be wise to speak with your doctor if you are taking any other medications or supplements and for your own safety, regardless if you have a medical condition or not.

When this PhenRED review was written, you could purchase a one month supply (1 bottle containing 60 capsules) for $39.95 on Amazon.


Want to get fast weight loss results and lose up to 30 pounds a month? This is the promise of PhenterMAXINE, according to its Amazon product page. This over-the-counter (OTC) dietary supplement for weight loss has been designed as a non-prescription alternative to popular prescription diet drugs like Phentermine. Supposedly delivering appetite suppression and body fat reduction, this fast-acting pharmaceutical grade quality diet pill is “ultra strong” and contains all-natural ingredients

How does PhenterMAXINE provide natural energy, fat burning and maximum appetite suppression? The only way to know is to take a look at its ingredients. Each capsule contains the following proprietary formula: Riboflavin, Vitamin C, Neacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Phenylethylamine Hydrochloride, Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, Bitter Orange Fruit, Flaxseed Oil Power, , Guarana Extract, Cape Aloe leaf Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Theobromine.

While containing a few vitamins as well as caffeine and green tea, both of which have been found to improve mental alertness and boost energy that could enhance fat burning during physical activity, none of these ingredients or the rest in the formula have ever been proven to effectively cause weight loss. Hence, there’s no guarantee that you’ll lose any pounds taking PhenterMAXINE, never mind 30 pounds in a month.

That being said, one of the most disturbing aspects of this diet pill is it contains multiple stimulants including three caffeinated ingredients (caffeine, guarana and green coffee bean). Due to the fact that there are no quantities listed for each individual ingredient, there’s no telling just how much caffeine is in a single serving of this product.

Be that as it may, users should be prepared for potential side effects related to stimulants including insomnia (especially if a dose is taken late in the day or the evening), headache, upset stomach, jitters, restlessness, heart palpitations, increased heart rate, anxiety, etc. Additionally, PheterMAXINE contains bitter orange fruit, which contains the stimulant synephrine. Like caffeine, this stimulant affects the central nervous system and actually enhances the effects of caffeine (both the good and the bad). The FDA has warned that combining caffeine and synephrine can result in severe cardiovascular effects, even in healthy individuals. Some of these effects may include high blood pressure, fainting, stroke and heart attack.

Users are instructed to take 1 or 2 capsules a half an hour before breakfast or as directed by their healthcare provider. At the time that this review was written, a one month supply cost $26.99.

Although an OTC dietary supplement available without a doctor’s prescription, it would still be in your best interest to speak with your medical physician before taking PhenterMAXINE to ensure that it is the safe and right choice for you.
