Alright, this is review 2 of 3 on the products that SPECIES NUTRITION sent me via the expert reviewers program. Just to be clear this is not a review for the original Lipolyze, but rather Lipolyze e2 without USNIC ACID, which is a controversial ingredient that some find to be dangerous. I'm not going to comment on it other than this is the newer formula that does not contain it.

Basically this is a non-stim fat-burner/appetite suppressant, which is great because most fat-burners overkill with stims. This is a product targeted to those who are not stim-friendly and those products are few and far between compared to stimulant-dependent fat burners.
I am splitting this into two parts. Weight loss and appetite suppression.
Weight loss 5/10: Taking 5 caps a day, I only took this for a total of 18 days. During the first 10 days I did not change my diet or exercise routine and I lost no weight whatsoever. On the last 8-10 days taking this I followed a slow-carb diet and dropped 5-6 lbs. So what does this tell you? Diet has way more to do with weight loss than popping pills. Did this product have an effect? Possibly, but I cant say for sure.
Appetite Suppression 9/10: This is the aspect of this product that impressed me the most. Even though I was taking other products, the effects of this particular product were apparent, because from the first dose to the last, this product crushed my appetite. I didn't feel hungry in between meals and and didn't feel like eating as much. Even when I wasn't following a "diet" so to speak, regular portions seemed like too much, so if you are trying to diet and eat less I can definitely recommend this product to help reinforce your willpower.
This product is a bit expensive. You can find a bottle for 35 bucks online, which doesn't look bad off the bat, but when its suggested to take between 3-5 caps a day that ends up only lasting you between 18-30 days. In my experience, I liked the results from this product at 5 a day, I might try fewer to save some money and product, but I generally stick with the high end of the recommendation, especially with a non stim fat burner like this.
Even though my final ranking is a 6, this is more because of the cost factor above anything else. Having to pay possibly $70 bucks for a little over a months supply is a bit ridiculous if you ask me. I did really enjoy the fact that this is a non-stim fat burner and that it had very effective appetite suppression abilities. Also, the change in diet reflected the biggest change in effectiveness, so with proper diet and exercise I think this product can be used effectively, but whether it is worth the price tag is up to you.
