Hydroxycut - A message from the FDA

Oh wow, spring is here and summer is on it's way. The coats, sweaters,layers of clothes are all coming off and the big reveal is apparent to you and all who see you. How do you go about losing weight or staying at a healthy weight? What is your work out method? Do you exercise daily? Do you select healthy choices for your meals? Do you skip meals? Do you try the various diets or weight loss food plans? Well, the choices are certainly out there and many people want to lose weight turn to various dietary supplements. A popular dietary supplement Hydroxycut is one that many people have used. The commercials boasts many claims with clients who have shared their weight loss of up to 41 pounds fast which is key to many who want to lose the weight without much to do. Furthermore, if you need to be convinced, Dr. Jon Marshall a resident physician supports the claims by stating that Hydroxycut users have lost up to 4 1/2 times the amount of weight than those who diet and exercise alone. Who wouldn't be tempted?

According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, Hydroxycut is linked to serious liver injuries. The products are being pulled from the shelves, however, it is very important to understand that not all stores may have complied or are even aware of the recall (depending on the store). Spread the word and let your family and friends know of these alerts - keep in mind not everyone shares what their weight loss methods are as it can be a personal/private matter. Losing weight and keeping in shape can be quite the challenge, not everyone wants to maintain a workout routine or healthy diet. However, using dietary supplements can be harmful to your health - as with all health related matters - seek your doctor's advice before beginning any form of weight loss activity or products.
