Apatrim is a stimulant-free diet pill that acts as an appetite suppressant and is intended to make weight loss occur more quickly and easily than dieting alone. Although the official website states that no healthy diet or exercise plan need be undertaken when taking this diet pill, there is the Apatrim Meal Plan that can be downloaded. This meal plan, however, does not provide nutritional information or calories for each meal and does not provide clear directions about how the foods should be prepared or served.
The official literature for Apatrim says that it allows for weight loss without the use of starvation or stimulants and the claim is that 100 percent of individuals who used the main ingredient in this drug were able to lose some weight. This main ingredient – the only one listed on the website – is Caralluma Fimbriata Plant Extract. This being said, there are no reputable clinical studies mentioned in order to back this claim.
This claim is made further suspicious by the fact that other studies, such as that published in the medical journal, Appetite, in May of 2007 by the Institute of Population Health and Clinical Research at St John’s National Academy of Health Sciences (Division of Nutrition) said that though there was some hunger level decrease among those participants in the study who had taken the caralluma fimbriata plant extract over the placebo group, when those two groups were compared in terms of their body mass index (BMI), body fat, hip circumference, and energy intake between the study’s assessment time periods, the two groups were found to be “not significantly different.”
Furthermore, there is no ingredients list available on the official website to help prospective buyers to investigate the promises about the ingredients by themselves. The site says that no matter what is eaten, and even without any additional exercise, by using this pill, the hunger cravings and appetite are suppressed and eating naturally occurs less frequently.
The main positive piece of information available on the website is that there is a ninety day money back guarantee (less the shipping and handling costs). This is especially important as there are no free trial samples being offered by the manufacturer.
