The Healthy Trim Diet - Reviews and Information

Updated on January 14, 2013

One of the hottest new weight loss support products on the market now is Healthy Trim. Does it really work or is it just like all the other diet pills out there that claim to help with weight loss?

If you're like most people, you are probably carrying a few more pounds around than you would like. As much as I hate to admit it, I'm in the same boat. While I used to pride myself in my ability to stay in great shape and keep up a positive appearance, it has become more and more difficult as I've gotten a bit older. A very busy schedule and a metabolism that just isn't what it once was has left me a little disappointed in what I see when I look in the mirror every day.

I still remember the confidence boost that came along with that same mirror glance when I could look at myself and honestly say, "Yep, I look pretty darn good!" I recently decided to work on improving my fitness and well-being after watching several family members go through some very difficult times that likely resulted from poor health, diet, and lifestyle choices. I overcame somewhat of a lack of motivation and embarked on a path towards a slimmer and trimmer me. I started to do a little research on popular diet and exercise plans in search of something that would fit my personality and that would be realistic to follow and achieve success with.

Healthy Trim

First off, I've never been a big fan of fad diets or diet pills. In my experience, most of them either don't work or work for a short time and later result in added weight gain. What I wanted was something that was more of a lifestyle change where I could incorporate key elements of a healthy diet and good food choices into my life. So many diets out there require you to change your life to fit the diet and over the long-term, that just doesn't work; especially if you have a family.

One afternoon when I was driving home from work, I heard about a radio contest called, "Get High School Skinny". Normally I would just flip to another station but for some reason, this caught my attention so I decided to stick with it. They mentioned a product called Healthy Trim (I believe it is actually spelled Healthe Trim) and out of curiosity, I decided to jot down the name to do a little more research.

My pre-conceived notion was that I would look it up and find that it was simply made from a bunch of garbage ingredients and stuff that isn't very good for you. I ran a quick online search to find the ingredients and was rather surprised to find out that it actually contained some pretty good stuff. The manufacturer doesn't push it as a miracle weight loss pill, they describe it as more of an energy boosting supplement that increases your metabolism and curbs your appetite and cravings.

What’s in it?

The product has several ingredients that can play an important role in maintaining good health including:

1. Resveratrol which has proven to have powerful antioxidant effects and help to boost energy levels.

2. Chromium Picolinate, a trace mineral that some experts say can help to control appetite and reduce body fat.

3. Green Tea Leaf which is rich in antioxidants that help to neutralize damaging free radicals. Some health experts claim it will help enhance the immune system (key to healthy weight loss) and help stimulate the body to shed excess weight.

4. Caralluma Fimbriata – This member of the cactus family has been used for centuries as a natural appetite suppressant. Some experts claim that it can play an important role in helping to decrease body mass index and excess fat.

These are just a few of the ingredients in Healthy Trim. In total, the supplement contains over 16 unique nutrients that can promote weight loss.

Does it Work?

I have to admit that after carefully reviewing the ingredients, this hot new product intrigued me enough to do a bit more reading. If you've read any of my other reviews, you know that I value science above hype and like to see proof that something works before I'm willing to buy into it. Once again, my initial expectations were rather low as most weight loss products wouldn't agree to an actual clinical study knowing ahead of time that the results would likely be unfavorable.

Much to my surprise, Healthy Trim was actually evaluated in a 30 day double-blind placebo controlled clinical trial. The study showed that participants taking Healthy Trim showed a statistically significant increase in weight loss over those participants taking the placebo. These results came from taking two capsules a day of Healthy Trim and engaging in no more than moderate exercise. In my opinion, that was pretty impressive!

If that isn't enough proof for you, the manufacturer actually had one of the radio DJs from the Mojo in the Morning Show use the product and to date, he has lost over 71 pounds! In fact, he recently did an interview on the radio with Dr. Oz discussing his success with the program.

How Does it Work?

Unlike a diet, Healthy Trim is much more like just taking a daily vitamin. You simply take two capsules each day and make an effort to consume at least eight glasses of water daily to help maintain proper hydration and support an increased metabolism. You can and should combine it with at least moderate physical activity to promote healthy loss of body fat.

It does not come along with any specific food restrictions but using common sense when selecting your meals will likely improve your results. While they don't have any specific dietary requirements, be smart about it and at least eat follow a sensible meal plan. A cheat day every once in a while isn't going to doom you to failure but you should attempt to make sound meal and portion size choices.

My Own Experience

After doing some pretty extensive research and not being able to find any good reason for continued skepticism, I decided to give it a try. I've used it for about three weeks now along with an effort to get to the gym or at the very least, engage in some form of physical activity three times per week. I can say with confidence that the product really does keep you from being hungry all the time. In fact, I had to adjust my grocery shopping because I was buying more food than I was able to eat before it started to go bad. I'm happy to say that the money I'm saving on grocery shopping so far is now on track to offset the cost of the supplement.

What about weight loss? So far I am down a little over six pounds. I still have about eight to go before I reach my goal but I've seen enough in the way of results to stay motivated to keep going. All in all, I can't really say anything bad about it so far. It seems like an excellent product and I look forward to updating this article later on as I get closer to my goal!

      I just saw the advertisement on TV and was very skeptical like others. I have tried so many different diet pills and programs I didn't know what else to do. I know of programs that are helpful, but I'm just not interested anymore. For the past year, since I started @ my job, I find it difficult not to eat whatever I want. I need something that will keep me from craving crap on a consistant basis and give me energy.

      After reading each and every comment, I am motivated once again, to try health trim.

      Thanks everyone for your comments. Your stories are truly motivating me to snap back into it.

      Started yesterday with 2 pills in the am. I am already skinny but want to lose 5 lbs for a cruise. I eat healthy all day until about 6 at night and then I go crazy eating everything. I'm not sure if I can take 2 pills in the am and 1after lunch. Maybe that would help. In 2 days I've lost 3lbs. Obviously its water weight. We'll see how it goes.

      Hey, I just wanted to say I've been taking healthy trim for about 20 days now, and I've lost ten pounds. I haven't started excersizing, and haven't intentionally changed my eating habits. But I find myself craving healthier food, and I'm just generally not as hungry. But, one side effect I really hate is if you don't drink high amounts of water you feel very achy. I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this, but i usually drink three 24 oz. bottles of water a day, and the last two days I haven't due to multiple reasons and I feel like death on a stick. So drink your freaking water and this stuff works!

      Okay so I read all the comments and I see that this product has different effects on everyone. I have been taking healhe trim for a month now and have lost twenty pounds. Okay so here’s hhow I do it. I take one pill at 5am when I wake up drink two cups of water. I get ready for worwork. Then at around 7:30am I eat a yogurt or an apple or a banana or even a protein shake. I then consume more water afterwards. At 11:45 am I take my second pill. Then around 1pm I eat a nice big meal consisting of meat, salad, sometimes white rice, sometimes even pasta. Pretty much whatever I want. Afterwards I’m stuffed because the pill really does curb your appetite. I go back to work drink more water. I go home and I’m still full of energy so I do my taebo pt 24/7 workout for 30mins sometimes I do an hour. I eat a very small dinner dinner sometimes I will have a protein shake with yogurt, bananas and strawberries. Sometimes a bowl of cereal with bananas or a sandwich on wholewheat bread or some fish and salad. Oh I also use chia seeds which is amazing. Sprinkle them on any thing you eat and you will feel great. So overall the healthe trim pills are not magic pills but they do give you loads of energy but not the jittery kind. And they do help curb the appetite. I’ve even taking them when I was sick with a terrible cold and it went right away after two days. Oh and remember you can’t drink coffee, eat chocolate or have artificial sugar while using this product as it will not work. If you folllow the directions you shouldn’t have a problem. I can go on and on about how wonderful this product is because I feel amazing. I still have a long ways to go but I’m happy I found something that works. By the way I also have hypertension and I still take my medication and haven't had any problems or side effects. Actually my blood pressure has dropped from my weight loss.

      I believe the DJ that is mention in this article could be Crisco from Dave Ryan morning show on KDWB - 101.03 in Twin Cities here. Here is the website:

      Crisco been able to keep his weight off and I actually saw him in person before and after. He look good! They talk about it on air and here is the website:

      I don't believe anything until I saw it with my own eyes and will get start when I get some extra cash.

      I'm almost at my second week on healthy trim and have lost 4lbs. I wake up at 6 every morning and take two pills first thing in the morning with a full glass of water. I wait the two to three hours before I eat my bowl of cereal. I usually don't finish It do to feeling stuffed and I'm usually not hungry until 3 or 4pm. The first day I took one pill in the morning and felt a lot of energy while also taking the second pill midday. The next day I started taking two pills cause my body is pretty much use to the caffeine. It's been working for me so far and I'm hoping to lose more! Hope this helps!

      I started taking it yesterday and jumped right in with two pills in the a.m. I waited 2 hours to have breakfast and then ended up throwing out part of my lunch. I also got full very quickly at dinner.

      This all seems very promising to me, so wish me luck!

      I have been taking Healthy Trim for two weeks now and have been going up and down as far as pounds. I started taking 1 pill in the morning and one in the afternoon 1 hour after lunch. I lost about 3 lbs in the first week and then I felt like my body was use to it to start taking 2 pills in the morning like it says in the directions. Taking two in the morning was way too much for me. I had a headache in the afternoon and around noon I felt like I had to take a nap. I felt a little nautious around 3:00pm. I decided not to take it anymore, so I didn't take the pill for one day and then decided to go back to 1 in the morning and 1 after lunch. I am back about a net of 1 pound lost, but I have about three inches lost on my waist. Also, I am working out 4-5 days a week for about 1 1/2hrs. The pill is actually giving me energy, but I don't think it really helping with my weight loss. I think it is my working out that is really attributing to my weight loss.

      Healthy Trim does not tell you to skip breakfast. It advises to wait 2-3 hours and then eat breakfast and to also consume lots of water.

    • profile image

      Shannon 7 years ago

      I have done a little reading on this and they don't recommend skipping breakfast, just taking the pills 3 hours before breakfast. And the caffeine is from the green tea extract which has health benefits of its own. The crash in the afternoon happens to people who drink coffee all day to keep going also and they aren't getting the health benefits of the green tea. As the review says, it seems to be more equivalent to a daily supplement than a diet pill. And the large amount of weight lost in the beginning is likely water weight. The claims above seem to be moderate in terms of weight lost versus time they have taken it.

    • profile image

      Emma 7 years ago

      Healthe trim isn't a great idea (just like all other diet pills). The reason some of you are crashing in the afternoon is because Healthe Trim has a fair amount of caffeine in it to boost energy and suppress appetite. Hence, the crash.

      Healthe trim is not a sustainable weight loss plan. They recommend skipping breakfast and eating a light lunch and dinner. Skipping breakfast? REALLY? Every nutritionist and health expert on the planet will tell you that's a terrible idea.

      In the end, what you want is to lose weight at a rate of abut 1 to 2 pounds per week. Any more of that means three things:

      1) you're losing weight at a rate that is not healthy for your body.

      2) you're losing more muscle mass than body fat, which will leave you with that weird, lose, chicken fat skin stuff that no one wants

      3) the minute you go back to eating a reasonable amount and not taking the supplement, you WILL gain back the weight, and probably more.

      None of the products they advertise like this will work in the long term. You might be able to drop 10 pounds in a couple of weeks to go to a wedding or something, but a couple of weeks after the wedding, you'll be right back where you were -- if not higher.
