It’s a fact that 36.5% of adults in America are overweight (according to the CDC). Most people would like to lose a little (or a lot) of weight from time to time.
The problem is that this leads to many of them trying all sorts of fancy weight loss techniques, diets, drugs, supplements and exercises in an attempt to melt the fat away.
It is usually a slow and painful process, and not everyone has the determination to see it through. What compounds the problem is that these methods don’t always work for everyone as well. Unfortunately, some people even give up completely and resort to getting weight loss surgery. If only they knew that it doesn’t need to be so difficult.
But what if there was a product that could help you lose weight by making your weight loss regimen even more effective, meaning less effort from you and better results? Well, that is what PhenQ promised… and let me tell you I was not disappointed.
We all know that there are plenty of natural sources that are scientifically proven to assist in weight loss. PhenQ is a weight loss pill that does the job of combining a bunch of these weight loss supplements.
The problem with most of the supplements found on the market today is that they only focus on one aspect and only contain just 1 or 2 of these active ingredients, but PhenQ approaches it from multiple angles.
This makes it much more effective than just taking a bunch of weight loss supplements and drugs. The pill was designed with a new and innovative dieting formula that is FDA-approved and backed by science. Each bottle comes with 60 tablets, which is a full month’s dosage (you are supposed to take two pills a day for them to be effective).
According to the website, PhenQ will make the body of your dreams a reality quickly and easily, allowing you to feel attractive and comfortable in your own skin. This is a huge and inviting claim (it was for me), especially for people who are desperate to lose weight. The website claims that once you start taking these pills, your weight problems will be over and you can slim down to your ideal weight in just a few months.
If you haven’t visited this blog before, you won’t know that I’m a health enthusiast and I like to test out a lot of different supplements. Yes, like a human guinea pig.
So it came to around the time of year where like to burn off a lot of fat. This time I decided to try out PhenQ after reading a lot of hype about it. My order was received quickly and I tried it out first thing the next morning.
About an hour after taking it I noticed a feeling of increased energy. If you’re like me, you’ll feel constantly tired when on any sort of diet. If I’m not eating as much food as normal, I feel like I have to keep myself alive with a lot of coffee.
But this morning was different, I didn’t feel the need to have my usual 2 cups of coffee before lunch. This was a welcome effect!
Another thing that I noticed on the first day was that I did not have my usual morning snack craving. After my breakfast at 8am, I am usually craving something else at about 10am or 11am. This morning, I didn’t get that feeling!
I went through the rest of my day feeling energized and without cravings. I still had 1 cup of coffee but it was much better than my usual 5-6 cups.
Again, like earlier, my usual cravings in the evening for chocolate was not present. This was kind of weird as my cupboards are stocked full of chocolates but I just didn’t feel like scoffing on any of them.
The funny thing was that this pattern carried on consistently while I took the pills. Fast forward to 1 month later and I had lost a total of 12lbs. I think that was a new record for me.
**UPDATE: I’ve been receiving a few messages from other people who have tried PhenQ out who have kindly allowed me to post their photos below **
PhenQ Ingredients – Why Does It Work So Well?
I did some digging into the ingredients as it got me wondering what was making it work so well.
This product contains a list of ingredients that are 100% natural, which is why you don’t need a prescription when taking these pills (mostly because it doesn’t contain phentermine, which is a psychostimulant).
The company has made sure that they are 100% transparent about their ingredients and have listed all of them in the spirit of full disclosure.
Let’s review the PhenQ ingredients. I’ve noted here what the ingredients actually do based on my own experience in the past from weight loss products:
- Capsimax Powder: Increases your body temperature and thus your metabolism to burn fat faster
- Calcium Carbonate: A deficiency in Calcium can hinder weight loss
- Chromium Picolinate: Controls the level of blood sugar in your body, which curbs cravings for sugar and carbs
- Caffeine: Keeps you alert, focused and energized and also boosts your metabolism
- Nopal: Nopal is rich in fiber and amino acids, which helps you control your hunger and releases excess fluid from your body to drop any water weight
- L-Carnitine Fumarate: Turns excess body fat into energy, which helps combat fatigue
How it Works
PhenQ uses a trademarked formula known as α-Lacys Reset. The formula is proven to speed up the body’s metabolism, making you speed up the process of burning calories. The result is that your body burns fat at a faster rate.
When your metabolism accelerates, thermogenesis, which is the production of heat, also accelerates. This allows your body to produce more heat, which increases the calorie burning process even further.
Fat burning is just one way the pills help you lose weight. They also do the following with their all-natural ingredients, allowing PhenQ to tackle your weight loss from various angles:
- Stop fat production
- Suppress your appetite
- Give you an energy boost
- Lift your mood
PhenQ Side Effects
Since the pills use ingredients that are completely natural, there are no known side effects, apart from the caffeine content. Therefore, I do not recommend taking this in the evening as you may have trouble sleeping (poor sleep also is not good for weight loss).
I recommend taking it first thing in the morning. But when it comes to these kinds of weight loss drugs, one should always be cautious of any undisclosed side effects.
Here are some of the general side effects to look out for:
- Increased heart rate and blood pressure
If you experience any of these side effects after taking the pills, stop using them immediately. You might also want to stay away from them if you are pregnant or taking any medication that can counteract with them (speak to your doctor first).
How Much Does it Cost?
The retail price of PhenQ is around $79.95 or £54 per bottle. Considering the results, I certainly think it is worth the money.
- Helps you burn calories faster and slims you down
- Gives you more energy
- Helps curb hunger and cravings for sugary food
- Prevents your body from producing more fat
- Improves your mood
- Contains fiber, which is good for maintaining a healthy digestion
- Unknown side effects

Bottom Line – Does PhenQ Work?
Yes, PhenQ worked great for me. It’s now a core part of my weight loss routine that I do a few times per year to keep myself slim.
At a time when the world is facing an epidemic of obesity, PhenQ seems to be the “cure.” The one thing you have to keep in mind when using PhenQ is that it’s special dieting formula, α-Lacys Reset, doesn’t work on its own; you also need to follow it up with a good diet and you will get a boost from an exercise regimen as well. So if you are ready to get the body that will make you feel attractive and confident, then give this product a try!
