    FDA announces recall of diet pill Hydroxycut

    Just came out 30 min ago. I actually started using it a few weeks ago. Guess I'm going right off of it. Ah, smells like the good ol' days when Hydroxycut had ephedra...

    WASHINGTON (AP) Government health officials are announcing the recall of popular weight loss pill Hydroxycut, after reports of liver damage and other health problems.

    Food and Drug Administration officials said Friday the manufacturer of Hydroxycut has launched a nationwide recall of the dietary supplement, used by people trying to shed pounds and by body builders to sharpen their muscles.

    Of course there's gonna be liver damage, eventually.
    That's what water pills do. . .amp out your system
    to over process the extra water in your system.

    It's like steroids, the body builders cycled it, back in
    he day, and most show no signs of ill effects.

    The athletes go and abuse it, and have all kinds of
    physical problems.

    Hydroxycut, and others like it are not intended for
    long-term use. So, all you fat people, STOP using it!
    Go train, instead!!!

    The FDA has received 23 reports of serious health problems ranging from jaundice and elevated liver enzymes, an indicator of potential liver injury, to liver damage requiring liver transplants. One death due to liver failure has been reported to FDA.
    What the Hell are they putting in those fucking things?

    Another question would be: what was the dosage????

    Too bad to see this product go. I remember the first time I used it, when it had ephedra. That thing gave me major jitters. The ephedra-free version was something I could use. I never really did use it for teh mythical phat-loss, but to get better early-morning workouts.

    This product is still dangerous for some, plus one never knows how exactly people are using this ****. I never got close to the full dosage, but I can imagine some 250+lbs fattie gobbling on this **** like if they were cashews.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Lipo6x is a much better product anyway. Stupid people will find a way to make anything dangerous. That's not a justification to outlaw a product that works just fine for responsible people.

    If I wanted an overprotective authority in my life I wouldn't have moved out at 18.

    Diuretics (water pills) typically force the Kidney
    to dump water and other fluids unnaturally, and
    thereby forces the kidney to process that extra
    fluid.

    Possible problems include potassium & electrolyte
    deficiency, liver shut down, dehydration, etc.

    but, hey, I'm not a doctor. . .
    can a doctor answer?

    That's the kidneys. You said liver damage.

    I'm also not sure what you mean by "unnaturally".

    Uh, sorry. . .
    it causes the kidneys to dump fluid,
    and the liver to have to process all that extra stuff.

    meaning it wouldn't normally happen,
    but the meds force it to, not the way
    nature works.
