Does Maxitone Work?

Is a google search term that keeps coming up for how people have come to my blog.

Well.... you have to do the work. Personally, I think there's no point spending all that money on Maxitone products without sorting out your diet and exercise regime first. Maxitone can only help build on what you've already got going on.

I stopped using the Sculptress capsules because they were making me feel unwell with all that caffeine on top of all the coffee I drink anyway. When I was using the Sculptress shakes I was primarily using them for a protein boost before/after workouts or as a quick and easy snack. I didn't find them to be anymore or any less effective than any other protein powder I have tried. But during the time I used Maxitone I also wasn't putting my all into my fitness or diet so I can't really give a fair opinion.

I just think it's important to remember it's not a magic powder that will melt away the fat from your ass :D

Wish it was though...

    Hi Stella,

    I agree with your view. I did use Maxitone sculptress pills and shakes for a bit, but I was uncomfortable having so much extra 'stuff' in my system, especially caffeine. Like you, I also do use whey prtoein powder to boost my protein intake after a weights workout, but also to help boost my protein intake for the day if I'm stuggling to do it naturally.

    If anyone who was asking Stella is reading this, then Maxitone is hugely expensive compared to other brands like My Protein, which I think taste much better as well. One thing I am also wary of is having too much of these protein products, especially the bars, as whilst they might not have added sugar, they ususally contain Xylitols, a natural alternative toi sugar, that play havoc with my digestive system (mild diarrhea sometimes). These side efffects are quite well known so do Google them to learn more.

    P.S. Can somebody please make some magic powder to make my butt smaller by the way?!!:-)

  2. I don't drink caffeine, so I find the sculptress capsules work great for me. I only take one a day, but those, a good diet and 3x 5km runs per week seems to be shifting the fat from my bottom half at a decent rate in time to fit into my glorious wedding dress.

    I have the shakes as occasional post-workout snacks, again I can only handle one scoop per drink (I am some kind of giant wuss!) but they taste very nice.

    But you're right, they can't do it for you and they're certainly not a 'fix all magic pill'.

  3. Yeah, too true about it not being a magic pill.. A lot of the time people are looking for a quick fix but they might work if you already have a good diet/exercise regime.

  4. I agree about it not being a quick fix, unfortunately the TV ads seem to market it like that (although the website is better). Maybe I'm not qualified to comment though, as when I tried some capsules like you I wasn't really being strict about everything else, and I thought the shake had a really vile aftertaste and made me feel so ill that I sent it back to them!

    Totally agree with you about My Protein! I also think the powder mixes a lot better, I found Maxitone was often lumpy.

    I'd love to go for a more natural protein supplement like Sun Warrior, funds wont allow for now sadly. but I do hate the processing and added junk.

    Yeah there is a lot of really good advice and info on the website - I guess they know that to get people's attention they need to show what people want to see in the TV and magazine ads - hopefully when people go to the website they have a read around.
    I've heard a few people say the shakes made them ill.

  7. I ceretainly had problems with the bog-standard Maximuscle protein powders doing horrible things to my digestive system. I think I narrowed it down to the CLA they use as I had the exact same effects from the Maximuscle CLA capsules when I took those in isolation as the protein powder in isolation. The My Protein CLA capsules (and protein powders and other supplements like Total Breakfast) are completely fine, by comparison.
