Currently, there's no evidence that any one food, vitamin, mineral or herb is going to help you lose weight, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. That includes weight-loss supplements such as Hydroxycut. However, if you're eating fewer calories than you take in, you should lose weight. Consult a health care practitioner before starting a supplement like Hydroxycut.

Hydroxycut and Weight Loss

Hydroxycut Proclinical is a weight-loss supplement that contains a blend of ingredients: caffeine, lady's mantle extract, wild olive extract, komjin extract, wild mint extract, goji, acerola, blueberry and pomegranate. The website refers to clinical studies that prove Hydroxycut helps people lose weight; however, study details are vague, and journal citations are not provided.

Weight Loss Without Hydroxycut

To lose weight naturally, without the need for a "natural" supplement, you need to move more and eat less. If exercise is difficult for you, consider adding more movement to your day by parking far from entrances and taking walk breaks every hour. Fill your diet with low-calorie, nutrient-rich foods, and keep portions small to help reduce your calorie intake.
