You might need help to jump start your weight loss, and certain diet aids may help you on your journey. Some dieters use Hydroxycut, a diet pill that contains a number of natural ingredients, along with caffeine and other products that may help boost energy levels. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reports that using Hydroxycut could lead to liver damage, so you should talk with your doctor before beginning a regimen that includes this product, particularly if you have a history of liver disease. If you decide to use Hydroxycut, follow the instructions for use carefully. [Section reference: FDA and Hydroxycut site]
