I have been working out for about 9 months and have been losing weight slowly which is fine with me because I know if you lose weight fast you tend to gain it back fast. I have barely change my diet except I eat under 1300 calories 5 days a week with eating what I want on the weekends. I went from 150 lbs to 142Lbs in 9 months and peaked at that weight. I spent 3 months at 142 lbs and work out 2 to 3 times a week (an hour of cardio and 30 minutes on weights) and still could not lose anymore weight. I started taking Hydroxycut Pro clinical the 7th month and am dropped to 140 lbs. I did nothing differently but add Hydroxycut so I know it is the pill. I bought the gummies this 8 th month and dropped another pound. I am pleased and I do not have any side affects. I am really happy with this product.
