BACK BACK BACK in the dizzay. I tried Hydrox Hardcore and it worked pretty well. It helped me lose something like 8lbs, but I wasn't too heavy set to begin with. 8lbs sound like crap on a fat guy, but 8lbs is notable on an already quasi-lean frame.
I would suggest boatloads of other cut supps instead of Hydroxycut Hardcore, like Recreate, Leviathan Reloaded, DCP... but if you've already bought it, I'm not saying you have a bottle full of placebos, they did work well for me, but you can get more bang for the buck with other cut supps for future reference. There are a lot of superior supps compared to Hydroxycut Hardcore and more cost efficient, but work with what you got if you've already got it.
However, don't forget that with any fat loss supp, you need to be proactive with it, clean diet, cardio. If your diet is clean and your cardio is suffice, the hydroxy will augment that process, which is what any product is meant to do; to supplement a fat loss plan, not replace one (I'm not preaching to you, I'm sure you already know this, I just always emphasize this whenever I talk about fat loss supps)
Stay away from GNC and don't touch the Muscle-Tech and you'll be alright.

I wish they would stop selling this. The claims are false. They are using the stats from the original Hydroxy that had Ephedrine HCL in it. You would be better off with something else.

I did take it for probably a month once when i was younger, didnt buy into the muscletech crap, but it was the only supp i had really known about for fat loss until i started doing research. Anywho, i do feel it worked a little bit for me, but not enough for me to ever even look at it again. There are so many better products out there, look for Recreate/Leviathan Reloaded/Lean Xtreme.

The old formula worked the new formula is Crappola. If you watch your diet and exercise and take a better supplement like recreate,DCP+Levithan, or something other than Muscle Yech you will be better off. And Stay out of GNC they will not answer your questions honestly, They will sell you expensive junk.

Find a link to that, because I don't believe it. It is not legal and never has been legal to sell Ephedrine HCL as a fat loss product.

You know what ECA is right, ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin, that's pretty common knowledge that many of the old fat loss supps contained ECA. "Ripped Fuel" (Twinlabs), "Xenadrine" (Cytodine), "Dymetadrine Xtreme" (AST) were all ECA based supps.
You'd be hard pressed to find a link to an original formula because these ECA based supps have either vanished because they've been banned for almost 10 years, or they've been transformed over too many replacement formulas.

product is overhyped
AS many have said the product is good for augmenting an already well designed diet and exercise program, however I have a few negatives that come along with taking Hydroxycut Hardcore. Number one it is caffeine overkill. It causes the jitters for sensitive people and it has no ephedrine in it.
2- It can cause some stomach problems. I finished with the BIG bottle about 3 weeks ago and still have lingering problems such as loose stool and if I took the max dose for my weight I would have diarrhea.
3- There are more effective products out there for less money.
I would stay away from hydrox hardcore. I personally found a great way to get shredded in about 6-7 weeks is the zero impact diet from VPX. My bodyfat went down to 7% in 7 weeks from 14% and my lean bM went up by 5lbs. so for me, it allowed me to build muscle while shedding fat rapidly.

Ephedra and Ephedrine Hcl are both from the Ma Huang plant.
Pseudoephedrine Hcl is the synthetic version.

and yes there are better products than Hydroxycut Hardcore, but as others have said, people have had truly amazing results with the product.

I am not an MT hardcore fan, but if you have already bought the bottle use it. if your diet and cardio is in check it will help fight off fat.... the ingredients are tried and true... caffeine, green tea extract... and others... the only downside of the product is that is WAY over priced.
Unless your over 200lbs, you really only need one pill in the am and one in the early afternoon to get the boost... 2 in the am and 2 in the afternoon max... not 3 + 3 like they want you to take... 3 pills is 300 mg of caffeine!!! yikes... too much for me.
