✓ Fact Checked

Introduction

This product offers users a stack of different colored capsules that apparently will help then shred away body fat, boost their metabolism, reduce bloating and help with focus and memory – that all sounds great, but is it true? In this Critical Cuts review, we’re looking at whether this product is something we’d recommend.

What Is Critical Cuts?

Critical Cuts is a weight management product that is essentially several different products rolled into one. Rather than a conventional fat burner that only contains one formula, Critical Cuts has seven different formulations of capsule inside each sachet/packet – in this respect, it is a very similar concept to the Animal Cuts product.

You can buy this product at the official Critical Cuts manufacturers website, Amazon and a few other third party retailers.

We’re a big fan of keeping it simple – cocktails of different capsules all gets very confusing, especially for first-time users of diet pills / weight loss products. Applied Nutrition direct users to consume the contents of each “stack pack” which contains:

  1. “Thermogenic complex” (the red capsule)
  2. “Metabolic complex” (the green capsule)
  3. “Thyroid Complex” (the purple capsule)
  4. “Diuretic complex” (the blue capsule)
  5. “Nootropic complex” (the black capsule)
  6. “Cortisol inhibiting complex” (the white capsule)
  7. “Bioavailability complex” (the yellow capsule).

This is probably one of the most clunky and unintuitive products we’ve came across; the whole concept of users shoveling cocktails of pills into their mouths on a daily basis is much more of a marketing gimmick rather than an effective means of losing body fat.

One thing we noticed was that many of these formulations could quite easily have been combined to lower the total amount of capsules users need to take on a daily basis.

Does Critical Cuts Work?

We feel that this product has more style than substance. The 7-capsule cocktail of various formulas is pretty cool, but we think it’s more so of a marketing ploy, rather than a clever means of burning body fat for users.

Despite the stack pack containing 7 different formulas, Applied Nutrition’s Critical Cuts doesn’t contain a single ingredient that directly and independently causes fat loss. Furthermore, there are no ingredients that are scientifically proven to promote a feeling of fullness – therefore no appetite suppression should be expected.

What we have with Critical Cuts is a combination of various stimulants, vitamins, minerals and extracts.

The main effects users can expect from using Critical Cuts are boosted energy levels. This effect is great for anyone who is actively working out and sticking to a calorie controlled diet.

Our Final Verdict On Critical Cuts

To finish up our Critical Cuts review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by. It’s not a terrible product, but we don’t believe it’s anything groundbreaking. In order to see good results with fat burners, users don’t need a huge cocktail of various formulas, they just need one solid formula that genuinely works.

There isn’t anything inside this product that will directly burn body fat, nor is there anything that suppresses appetite, which is a bit of a let down. Much of what Applied Nutrition are saying about this diet pill stack is false, which leads us to believe they don’t have much respect for their potential customers. Another downside to this product is that all the various blends and complexes within it just leaves people open to a whole host of negative side effects.
