skinny fiber diet pills

Skinny Fiber is a weight management product from Skinny Body Care. More specifically, it is a fiber supplement that is designed to decrease your appetite by expanding in your stomach. This fills the stomach, which helps to make you feel full before you even start eating. Aside from reducing hunger and curbing your appetite, Skinny Fiber will also increase your metabolism and suppress fat formation.

How Does it Work?

According to the video on the official website (at the current writing of this review), all you have to do is take two Skinny Fiber capsules with water, 30 minutes prior to eating “large meals”. After this point, the powerful ingredients start to work, getting your body “ready” to lose weight.
The benefits supposedly include:

  • Craving control
  • Flushing toxins
  • Eat less
  • Feel full

“Powerful” Skinny Fiber Ingredients

The Skinny Fiber formula is composed of the following ingredients:

  • Glucomannan
  • Caralluma Fimbriata Extract
  • Chá de Bugre
  • Glucomylase
  • Amylase
  • Lipase
  • Papain
  • Protease

Glucomylase, amylase, lipase, papain, and protease are all digestive enzymes that have been included in the formula to supposedly work together to help you break down foods to “lose weight for good.” Aside from these enzymes, the three main ingredients are:

  • Glucomannan – This is a water-soluble fiber. It absorbs water and expands. That said, in order for it to expand to its full potential, you need to have enough water in your stomach for it to be absorbed by the fiber. How much water does it need exactly? That is a very good question. The official video on the site says a “glass of water”, but it doesn’t specify the size of the glass or the actual amount of water needed.
  • Caralluma Fimbriata Extract – This is a cactus extract that suppresses the appetite. According to Skinny Body Care, this all-natural ingredient will help reduce your cravings and help you eat less. While there have been some obesity studies involving this herb, there are not enough human studies available to backup appetite suppression and craving reduction claims.
  • Chá de Bugre – This is a small tree from Brazil that is a natural source of caffeine. What is interesting about this tree is that compared to other caffeinated herbs, the levels of caffeine in Chá de Bugre are lower, however, the stimulating effects are apparently stronger than regular caffeine found in coffee. This herb is believed to boost metabolism, help support healthy energy levels, and also contains acids that have been known to help with healing. 

Lack of Evidence

While all of these ingredients have the potential to help with weight loss, the problem is that substantial clinical proof of their efficacy is lacking. The claim is that Skinny Fiber has been scientifically formulated and that all of its ingredients are 100% pure and natural without chemicals, but there is no scientific evidence that this supplement contains proven weight management ingredients.

Furthermore, although the Skinny Fiber site reveals the product ingredients, there is very limited information about these ingredients and there is no clinical research to support their claims. This, combined with the fat that the company doesn’t even take the time to tell users how much water they should ingest to best use their product, speaks to their lack of quality.

It appears that Skinny Body Care is more interested in having people try their 90 Day Challenge than actually providing them with detailed and practical information about the diet pill, which is truly disappointing. Also, the company has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau, with 4 unresolved complaints, which is a giant red flag.

The bottom line is that there is no proof Skinny Fiber will work in the short term or the long term. The lack of guarantee and the company’s overall lack of integrity are concerning and leave too much room for doubt regarding this product’s efficacy. That said, if you are considering giving it a try, speaking to your doctor first would be best.

November 2019 Update: Skinny Fiber and Skinny Body Care no longer seem to exist. Although you can still purchase the product online from random sellers, no respected retailer currently has it in stock, indicating that this diet pill has likely been discontinued.
