Angry Supplements’ Hot & Skinny fat burner weight loss aid is a dietary supplement that has been developed for women. It claims to:

  • Melt stubborn fat
  • Burn calories
  • Aid metabolism
  • Provide natural energy

The primary use for this diet pill, according to Angry Supplements, is to aid the metabolism of carbohydrates and boost body temperature to burn calories and melt stubborn fat quickly.

Hot & Skinny Active Ingredients

The Hot & Skinny formula has several active ingredients including:

  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin B1
  • Vitamin B2
  • Vitamin B3
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin B5
  • Chromium
  • Yerba Mate
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • Guarana Extract
  • Green Tea Extract
  • Bitter Orange Extract
  • Garcinia Cambogia

The suggested use is to take 1 capsule first thing after waking up in the morning and then taking 1 capsule with lunch. For those who are sensitive to caffeine, the manufacturer suggests taking the pills with a small amount of food and to avoid taking this product within 6 hours of bedtime.

There are multiple stimulant ingredients in this formula including, guarana, green tea, yerba mate and bitter orange. While these stimulants can help to boost energy, mental alertness and metabolism (which has the potential to help you get the most out of fat burning during aerobic workouts), it should also be noted that combining different stimulants, such as bitter orange and caffeine (found in guarana, green tea, yerba mate) may increase the risk of unpleasant side effects, including more serious side effects like high blood pressure.

If your sensitive to stimulants, are currently taking other medications, have a known health condition, or are pregnant or nursing, you should speak with your doctor before taking Hot & Skinny. Also, if you do decide to take this product, it would likely be in your best interest to avoid ingesting other beverages or foods that contain caffeine or other stimulants, to reduce the risk of unwanted side effects.

Formulated for Women

According to Angry Supplements, Hot & Skinny is specifically designed for the unique biology and needs of women. That being said, beyond this statement, the manufacturer doesn’t provide any other reasoning as to why this particular weight management formula is specifically beneficial to women.

It is far more likely that this product has simply been marketed to appeal to a female audience and nothing more. As such, if you are a woman and are considering this product because it has been formulated for women, it would be best not to buy into the marketing and to instead make certain that the formula makes sense to your specific weight management goals.

PhD Women Body Sculpt is a nonprescription weight loss supplement that is manufactured by the Yorkshire, U.K. based company called PhD Women LTD. The marketing focuses on female weight loss when combined with a healthy eating plan and exercise program. It is geared toward women who want to become more fit and who likely go to the gym.

The official website for the product is quite appealing and it provides a complete list of the ingredients that are found in the product including both the names of the substances and the amounts that are found in each serving. The ingredients include Caffeine anhydrous, Green tea extract, Phosphatidylserine, L-Tyrosine, Alpha lipoic acid, DMAE Bitartrate, Ginger powder, and Dandelion root.

These ingredients aren’t entirely unique. They are typically considered to be safe, although there is more than one stimulant in this formula, which could generate side effects for some people who have sensitivities to stimulants such as caffeine. The dandelion root should also be pointed out as an ingredient that may not be appealing to everyone, as it is a diuretic. Though this does mean that it will help to flush out some of the fluids within the tissues, so that bloating will not make the dieter look and feel larger than he or she actually is. However, it can make it easy for the user to dehydrate so it is very important for her to keep up hydration so that unpleasant side effects do not occur. Moreover, fluid loss should not be mistaken for fat loss. Fluid loss is only temporary and the size will typically return after a few days.

The product directions say that to take it properly, two pills should be taken once or twice per day. Two pills make up a single serving of the product and one bottle contains sixty servings (120 pills), which means that one bottle will last for one to two months. At £21.99, that price is actually quite low when considering other products that contain similar ingredients.

The website is quite informative and it includes clear contact information – including a telephone number and reasonable business hours – on the homepage for the product. Although there is no satisfaction guarantee, the site does provide a clear return policy in which the company will accept returns of unopened product provided that they are in the same condition in which they left the company when they were shipped. A refund of the product price minus shipping and handling is available. No refund is available for opened products.
