Despite all the hate, a good product
Ok, we all know Muscletech made a bunch of mistakes, but I need to be honest: I liked this product (and ordered more stuff made by Muscletech). And I need to be more honest: I bought because it was a great sale: Buy one, get TWO free (yes, 3 for the price of 1!) from BB.com
It's not my 1st thermo (I reviewed some here already), but it's the first one from a brand without DMAA. I made my own thermo mixing some pills in the past, but it's more practical buying one.
I took it for 25 days, 1 full bottle. During this period I also took a 20 serv bottle of White Flood, and 20 serv of Astravar 2.0. Also whey, L-Carnitine, multivitamin and flaxseed oil.
Price: 10. Buy one, get 3. Nothing more to add here. That was the reason to buy it.
Profile: 8. Good amount, and no proprietary blends.
Pill size: 7. Ok. No aftertaste, no burps. They just smell funny, it's not a "rooty smell" like other thermos.
Energy: 7. I felt the energy every single day. Of course it was going down during this 25 days, but I could feel it. During 2-3 hours after taking it I could feel more alert.
Thermogenesis: 8,5. Here is where HC shines for me. I could feel my temperature going high. During exercices I was sweating a lot!
Hunger supressant: 5. My hunger was the same. I didn't had any sugar craving (only saturdays - cheat days), but my hunger was the same.
Effectiveness: 8. I had low expectations, but I got good results! Lost 8.5 pounds in 25 days (I will consider 2 pounds of water weight, so let's give it 6.5 pounds of real weight). Also lost some belly, chest and legs fat. I measured myself every week, could see the results! Also, I was lifting 6 times a week, doing HIIT 3 times and cardio the other 4 days, and dieting. HC was a good help!
Side effects: 2 (lower is better). A lot of peeing, but no crashing, no jitters, no headaches. Could feel a good and clean energy.
Recommend? Maybe. Paying full price it's not a good deal. A BOGO deal I should buy it again. I'll run another bottle later in the year or maybe next year, and will review again. Also, I think it's a good DMAA-free option.
