Skinnybits Review: A product I just can't buy into.

Posted Oct 05 2012 7:24am
I felt it was a little hard to do a good review of the product based on the sample size that was sent to me, but I will do the best I can with what I had!

I loved everything I read about Skinnybits , although I do feel like I need to insert a bit of a disclaimer here.  Skinnybits is for people who want to lose weight easily.  I do not feel like I need to lose weight.  Sure I wouldn't mind a pound or two, but it is nothing I worry or obsess about.  I am happy with my weight!  I wanted to try it more to see how it helped control hunger since winter is coming on and that is when I tend to gain weight if I don't try to curb my eating a little.

Here is what they look like.  My kids thought they smelled terrible and I would have to agree..not an appetizing smell.
Small and easy to swallow.  They also say you can chew them or add them to salads, yogurt, smoothies, really whatever you want.  Personally I can't imagine adding them to a salad or yogurt.  Smoothies, maybe.

I recommend not chewing them.  They are chalky and they taste bad.  I felt like they got stuck in my teeth and turned my  whole mouth green.  I only chewed 5 tabs.

Swallowing them was much better.  

I did feel like they helped provide me with good energy on a run, but not too sure since I took them for a long run that I can attest to Skinnybits controlling hunger.

They recommend taking 20-40 tabs at a time up to 300 a day.  A bag of 1000 tabs will set you back $115.

No kidding.  With prices like that I can guarantee I won't be taking anymore of those, fabulous health benefits or not.

Touted health benefits do include

another thing I can't figure out.  There are twelve tabs per serving.  You are supposed to take 20 to 40 at a time.  best results are at 40-100 a day but you can take up to 300.  The minimum amount suggested is just over a serving a a half.  Why don't they just make 20 a serving size? Seems neater that way.

Nutritional stats look great, but this is one product fabulous or not I just can't afford.  I really wanted to like this, but I just couldn't overall.  Feels like a product for the rich and famous neither of which is me.

Anyone else tried Skinnybits or Energybits?

I was sent a sample of Skinnybits to try and review free of charge.  The opinions expressed here are my own. I was not compensated in monetary form for this post.
