I just started the HC Max 2 days ago. I have tried the HC hardcore with results. It is true, no matter what pills you decide to take, you HAVE to exercise. These pills are not miracle workers,they are meant to assist you. You should do your homework before purchasing any pills. Most ALL diet pills have some form of caffeine in them. If you have a sensitive stomach or can't handle caffeine well, then don't buy this stuff, because it will make for bad reviews.

Hydroxycut Max for Women Reviews
Muscletech has several different formulas for its ever popular Hydroxycut line of fat burners, and one of which is made specifically for ladies. The diet pill is heavily promoted and marketed as a weight loss solution just for women, helping women achieve a lean, and toned body, and also reduces BMI. The diet pill comes in their "rapid release liquid caps", and is supposed to dissolve much faster than regular tablets. They also claim that it is backed up by clinical trials.
You may also see references to 2 different studies, which have shown that the subjects lost 21lbs in 12 weeks in one study, and lost 17lb in 8 weeks in the second study. However, there's no way to verify the claimed results. So take it with a grain of salt. This is simply how they market their products - you will see a lot of "formulated by medical doctors", and "based on scientific evidence" in plenty of their marketing campaigns.
Hydroxycut Max Ingredients
Muscletech Hydroxycut Max contains a proprietary blend containing various ingredients aimed for promoting weight loss. According to the official website, the key active ingredients are Alchemilla vulgaris, Olea europaea, Cuminum cyminum, and Mentha longifolia contained in the "Max ProDefine" complex. We'll take a look at some of these key ingredients below.
While there's a list of different ingredients shown in the product label (see image above), it looks like the key ingredients are all contained in the "Max ProDefine" complex. If you've never heard of any of those 4 ingredients, I don't blame you!
However, my research on this topic tells me that the combination of those 4 ingredients isn't by accident or through some alchemist conjuring - rather, it has much to do with one scientific study which found the combination of the 4 aforementioned ingredients to have significant thermogenic properties and weight loss benefits. My aim-in-the-dark guess is that when Muscletech came across this study, the promising results persuaded them to use the 4 key ingredients in Hydroxycut Max. I'll describe the study below.
This study looked at the mixture of extracts from 4 plants used in traditional Arabic and European herbal medicine. These included:
Gee, look at that, these are the exact same 4 key ingredients used in Hydroxycut Max! Surprise, surprise! This extract mixture was tested for safety and weight loss effectiveness. The study found this mixture to have antioxidant properties along with progressive and significant weight loss benefits in lab animals and humans. The study had noted a triple increase in thermogenesis in rats. Of course, it's the results on humans that we're really interested in.
There were 80 human subjects with BMI of over 30. They were given the mixture or a placebo for a period of 3 months. At the end of the study, the average BMI of the group dropped from 32.1 to 27.5, which is a significant improvement. The study also noted that the mixture was well tolerated with no side effects reported. 
So there you have it. Mystery solved about the four key ingredients used in the Max ProDefine blend of Hydroxycut Max.
Aside from this you have the standard caffeine plus various other ingredients such as vitamin C, calcium, iron, plus some amino acids and coenzyme Q10.
Hydroxycut Max Review - Does it Work?
So when all is said and done, what matters most is does Hydroxycut Max work. So far, it looks like many female users are experiencing positive results using Hydroxycut Max. If you have used this diet pill, please share you experience of Hydroxycut Max here. As always, start at half dose to get a 'feel' for the fat burner, and only increase to the full recommended dose after you feel more comfortable with it.
I have been taking Hydroxycut Max for about 1 week now. I have been pleased with it so far, I drink the recommended amount of water and I maintain 1200-1500 calories per day. Only I have a very sensitive stomach when it comes to caffeine, so I have been having some pain and slight nausea. Because of this, and only this, I don't feel it is appropriate for me to continue taking it.

I bought my bottle of Max for Women some several months ago because I was fed up with extra flab and wanted some motivation. I used it as directed realizing that it was too much for my body to handle. I felt the effects of the pills immediately (even after the first time I took one)- with an obvious increase in sweating, and pooping, and during the first few days slight nausea and occasionally headaches. After several months, I only take Hydroxycut pills before workouts. I'm energized for the workouts, able to go longer and harder (and sweat a GREAT deal more). If anything, HydroMax has motivated me to workout more - and work harder, but I definitely owe some of my success to the pills. I'm more cut, more muscular and weigh less than I did a few months ago. It's an intensely effective product, but affects ppl differently. I recommend trying it. I've been VERY satisfied with it.
