Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

Which is better for weight loss....Hydroxycut or Xenadrine?

The people at GNC (general nutrition center) told me that Xenadrine was better for weight loss and Hydroxycut was better for body building.

Does anyone have any personal experiences with either of these that you'd like to share?

Thanks!
~Jenn~

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

Thanks Amanda!
Just wondering....are you doing anything else that helped you lose that 14 pounds? (my ultimate goal is to lose about 30 pounds, but 14 in two weeks would be a wonderful start!)

Or are you just taking the Hydroxycut and exercising?
Thanks for the info!

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

Amanda, what kind of food are you eating and could you give me an example of a typical day. I am taking xenadrine EFX and I am on zoloft. Are you taking the Hydroxycut with or without ephedrine. I don't think that they recommend mixing an antidepressant and ephedrine that is why I am trying the EFX. If you have any info on this subject I would appreciate it. Also, did you have any side effects with the hydroxycut? I need to lose 30 pounds and would like to lose 20 of those by the end of July. Tina

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

hey Jenn, I have tried both Xenadrine supplements, by far the Xenadrine EFX is better. NO Ephedrine!! I have had no adverse side effects, plus green tea is a great anti-oxidant. Good Luck <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif"> best to all!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wave.gif"> kjack<p>[This message has been edited by kjack (edited 05-20-2002).]

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

Hi hockeymom
Well first of all my sis is on antidepressant and she was told not to take any diet pills while on them...I would ask u please ask ur doctor in regards to that cause I am can't give u any personal advice on that subject.
Yes I do take the Hydroxycut with Ephedrine the only real side effects I have had from it is sometimes (not everday) i get really nervous and shaky after taking them...witch yes I think that has to do with the Ephedrine....I myself am trying to find something else to take with no Ephedrine in it....for instance the Xenadrine..if u could would u let me know how that is working for u and if u have had any side effects from the Ephedrine free Xenadrine?
For a Typical day meals in the morning I usually eat a bowl of Special K with skim milk,( iknow its not the best milk but its good for you) and a piece of toast....For lunch I eat some kind of salad sometimes a regular one sometimes a grilled chicken one and a cup of fruit or yogurt.....For dinner like last night I had a grilled Chicken breast a cup of green beans and a lil bit of squash (i am not so sure how good squash is to eat while on a diet) but thats what my hubby cooked so i ate it..lol....and then for my snacks i have a banana or a few carrots.....well that what i try to eat....not sure how much it will help u but it has done pretty good for me .......Best of luck to you and let me know how ur doing.....Have a great day

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

Just wanted to let you gals know that so far I really haven't lost anything on the EFX, however, I have not started working out and I am having a hard time cutting out the "bad" foods. I haven't gained any weight so I would say that if I start eating better and exercise that they should work pretty good. Before I started taking zoloft I used to take diet pills that had ephedra in them and they definitely worked but there are definitely side effects: nervousness, sleeplessness, dry mouth. I guess it just depends on the individual. I will tell you that I never had problems with anxiety untill about a year after I started taking the ephedra. I am not positive that it was the cause but it is very possible. I also know that there is a chance of having a stroke while taking ephedra. I seem to be having hormonal problems as well as anxiety so this could just be a coincidence but I would say that it is better to be safe than sorry. If the ephedra wasn't a health risk I don't think that alot of the companies would be coming out with the "ephedra free" products. Tina

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

i've never heard of this Xenadrine. Is it natural? Can you buy it at the drug store, or a food store and does anyone know if you can take it with thyroid medication?Please help!

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

You can buy Xenadrine at GNC stores and Wal-Mart. Yes, it is all-natural.

Re: Hydroxycut vs. Xenadrine

I have tried both and I like Hydroxycut so much better. Hydroxycut includes an appetite suppressant unlike Xenadrine. The ingredients are the same with the exception of the appetite suppressant. I have tried the Xenadrine EFX and hated it Ė completely different reaction than the original one with ephedrine. I was on it for about 2 weeks and returned it back to GNC (money back guarantee!! works great when you want to try something new without wasting your money). On Hydroxycut, I donít feel hungry and for the first time in my life, I forget to eat a meal!! That reaction never happened while taking Xenadrine. Iím not saying that taking Hydroxycut will allow you to starve yourself but it allows me to be in control when and what I eat (especially at the end of the day). I make better, healthier choices when I am not a nervous wreck wanting to raid the refrigerator. Hope this helps Ė Oh yeah, I have lost 15 pounds in 1 month by using Hydroxycut and during the first month of using Xenadrine (with ephedrine) I lost 5 pounds. When I switched to Xenadrine EFX, I lost 1 pound in 2 weeks Ė to discouraging to keep me going.
