I've been on it for 2 weeks and I have noticed a difference. I lost 6 lbs and my waist line is getting smaller. I do a
little exercise, not alot but I'm sure If I
increased my exercise and stayed with this, I will hit my goal. One important thing to remember is to drink LOTS of water. So far so good.

Hydroxycut has had a long product history and
also a large user base. From the days of Hydroxycut
with Ephedra up to now, there has been many
changes and new products introduced to the Hydroxycut
to the already extensive line of weight loss products, Hydroxycut Hardcore X promises
to help in the never ending battle against unwanted
body fat. Over the years, they've played around with the naming several times. They've had the regular and then Hardcore Pro Series, the Hydroxycut Hardcore X products, and now Hardcore Elite. And yes, with each different name, the formula gets re-tooled.
This is a popular fat burner for which we've received over 600 customer comments and reviews! That's right, over 600! You can also read customer
reviews of Hydroxycut Hardcore here. The average rating of all these user reviews is 3.9 out 5 stars.
So yes, as you can see, this is one massively popular diet pill.
According to Muscletech promo material,
Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite:
I took HH and it boosted my energy and gave me the drive to get up and work out. It works great drink tons of water only no pop or nasty sugar drinks. Eat good healthy meals and cut your calories you shouldn't be hungry it will help that. I lost 40 pounds in six months. I did cardio every other day and lifted weights every other day. I also did as many pushups and situps I could do when I woke and before bed. It works, obviously the working out had a big effect. I feel it really helps the motivation and speeds up you metabolism. I definitely sweated more. My buddy who is 27 just lost about 30 pounds on this over the last year. IT WORKS DRINK WATER! LOTS OF WATER AND DON'T GIVE UP!

Muscletech also calls this the 4-in-1 full transparency thermogenic. What this simply means is that they are being very clear and transparent on the product label about exactly what's contained and in what amounts. This seems to be the new - and certainly positive - trend developing in the supplement industry, where product makers are offering a lot more detailed information about their products.
Previously, what you had was some sort of "proprietary blend" of an XX amount, and then within that total amount, there will be a number of different ingredients. So you never really knew how much of each ingredient you got. Take a look at the product label to the left, you can see exactly how much of each ingredient is contained:
250mg of coleus forskohlii
200mg green coffee
With our reviews, we like to always look at the key active ingredients to gain a better understand of exactly how a product works. With Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite, one of its key ingredients is coleus forskohlii (CF), which has powerful weight loss benefits. In fact, this key ingredient is a fairly important fat loss ingredient that we did an entire write up on it here with great details and scientific studies to backup its claims. So please have a look at that if you wish.
In short, CF has been found to reduce body weight, lower food intake, minimize fat accumulation, improve body composition by greatly reducing fat mass, increase lean mass, and prevent weight gain with no apparent side effects. These are all discussed in the CF article based on studies done on real human subjects.
Yohimbe is actually better known as an aphrodisiac that helps improve sexual performance and enhances libido. You can read more about it here. However, it also has weight loss applications as well where studies have found it to greatly enhance weight loss.
Do a quick search on Green Coffee, and you'll quick run into numerous news reports touting its weight loss benefits. But being detail oriented, I always prefer to see it in scientific reports. And Green Coffee does seem to be every bit as good as the news articles claim it to be! In one study with 16 overweight adults, it was found that consuming green coffee extract resulted in significant reductions in body weight (-8kg average) and body fat (-4.44% average) - this was over a period of 22 weeks. 
L-theanine is commonly found in green tea, which is known to have anti-oxidant properties and helps with weight loss. Caffeine, as we all know, is a mild stimulant. It helps boost your energy, increases alertness and focus, and also works as a weight loss agent.
Weighing in at 231 pounds I was unhappy with my appearance and felt lethargic constantly, even though I was lifting weights 3-4 times a week.
Tried HH and got an immediate boost, giving me more energy than I've had in years.
Combining HH with a healthy diet, exercise and weight lifting, I was able to go from 231 pounds to 171 pounds in a period of 6 months.
I'm now fit, healthy and buff.
I experienced little side effects apart from peeing alot.
- Marcus from NSW, Australia (5/5)
I had Horrible side effects and really bad kidney pain, plus I only lost 4 lbs in a month.
- Riley James from Utah (1/5)
I must say it works... but just like any other supplement you have to eat right and exercise... i worked out daily and i went from 200 to 163 in 6 months. I ate healthy... didn't really diet but ate healthy. If you are serious about losing the weight then I recommend it. It will give you the energy to work out, and I had no trouble sleeping afterwards, probably cause i didn't take it right before I went to bed.. that's just retarded.
