The time has come for my It Works Advanced Formula Fat Fighter Review. If that sounds like a dramatic opening sentence, you are correct, it is a very dramatic sentence for a very dramatic Fat Fighter review that you are about to read. I mean aren’t all my reviews kind of dramatic? I think they are. Because I guess I’m a bit dramatic. But hey- that means you are going to hear EXACTLY what I thought about this product. I’m not going to sugarcoat anything or distill down my opinions. My big mouth gets me in plenty of trouble but I think my reviews are one place where my raw opinion is appreciated. So I hope you do appreciate it in this It Works review. The difficult thing with some of these fat burning supplements is that you never know how much of it is the product working and how much is a lifestyle change that you might have made. But for this fat burner review I’ve done my best to control every possible variable so that there is nothing else that could be impacting the results that I got during my two week trial run with Fat Fighter by It Works. Before we dive in- here is what you are about to be told about Fat Fighter. (Wow that was terrible sentence structure). First, we will talk talk about if It Works, well, work! Second we will discuss the ingredients and formula of It Works. Third we will discuss labeling and packaging. If that all sounds good, keep on reading my It Works Fat Fighter Review.

It Works is a total lifestyle brand that makes everything from diet supplements and weight loss products to yoga mats to even, get this, a weight loss wrap that you put around your waste and it apparently has an impact on your waistline! Now. If you read my Sweet Sweat Reviews you know that I don’t really believe in these seemingly ‘gimmick’ products. I mean. A fat loss wrap?! What will they come up with next? But I did decide to grab some of It Works Fat Fighter to test it against the likes of Shredz and 1st Phorm. So. Does It Works Work? How do I compare Shredz versus It Works? 

It Works Fat Figher Performance Grade: 8.0

I have to give It Works an even 8.0 on the performance side of things. When I think back to how I looked two weeks ago before I started It Works, to now, there are a few changes that I’m pretty sure can be tied back to It Works Advanced Formula Fat Fighter. The most noticeable change in my body have been, well, ok not that noticeable. But I think that It Works has actually worked. A little bit. This is what I’ve noticed since I finished my trial run: 

The most noticeable effect of It Works is that my overall appetite has seemed to diminish slightly. It’s strange because they actually tell you to take Fat Fighter AFTER you eat. This is different than alot of the other fat burners (including Shredz) that I’ve tried that advise that you take the pills before you eat. I think the dosage timing is a key difference for It Works vs. Shredz and it impacts how the product performs. But getting back to the effect I’m discussing- I don’t really know how the product has made my appetite lessen because it seems like taking it after shouldn’t have any impact. But it does. And even in the morning when I like to have quite a hearty breakfast I haven’t had the same appetite. It’s like Fat Fighter is working around the clock instead of just right when you take it. Like 1st Phorm Bliss for me seemed to only work for like a few hours where you could feel it doing stuff. But Fat Fighter has effects 24/7.

The other thing that changed from day 1 to day 14 for me was my skin thickness. I mean this in the visual way, where you can just see more definition. I literally don’t think my skin thickness actually changed, for those of you who are thinking this is some kind of crazy It Works side effect. In fact I didn’t notice any It Works side effects for the entire duration that I took the product. But what I mean by skin thickness was that I had more complete abs. Whereas usually I just have my weird oblique definition you could actually see some cuts in the middle where normal people have abs. I usually only see these in cases of extreme dehydration (like when I’m hungover AF). But strangely enough I think Fat Fighter and it’s carbohydrate blocking was actually helping. This reminded me of one of the effects I saw with another carb blocking fat burner- VULCAN, although the effects were not QUITE as strong as with that one.

A few notes before we move into the formula grade are that you probably won’t get the same results with Fat Fighter as you will with some of the other caffeinated weight loss products. So that’s another of the key differences between Shredz and Protein World and It Works. 

It Works Fat Fighter Formula Grade: 9.0

I’m actually going to give this stimulant free fat burner an A on the formula grade because I found that this fat burner performed really quite nicely for me. It did seem to improve my definition without compromising musculature, which some of these products can do if you aren’t careful. 

The key purpose of of It Works Fat Fighter is to keep your body from storing your food as fat. There are a few ingredients in here that are going to assist in mobilizing and burning the lipids, but really the focus of this formula is on blood sugar regulation and carbohydrate ‘partitioning’ as they often refer to it. 

Here are all of the ingredients in It Works Fat Fighter: 

  • Chromium Dinicotinate Glycinate
  • Cactus Leaf
  • Garcinia Cambogia
  • Hydroxycitric Acid
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract
  • Phaseolamin
  • Bitter Melon Fruit Extract
  • Banaba Leaf Extract
  • Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf Extract
  • Vanadium

So after rattling off this list of ingredients- a few things jump out at you. The first is that the chromium is the feature ingredient. I’ve always found chromium to be an effective sort of ingredient for keeping the fat off in the first place. This mineral is essential to your blood sugar regulation. The other pretty noticeable thing that I’m seeing here is that there actually IS caffeine in the product, contrary to what I literally just told you about the product being stimulant free. Silly me. How foolish and careless. I apologize. But yeah. There is some caffeine but it’s still not going to knock your socks off like EVL ENGN pre workout or something. Or Mister Hyde. Now that stuff was wild. Speaking of wild, how about this packaging? LOL. Just kidding this product is really pretty bland.

It Works Fat Fighter Packaging Grade: 7.6

It works has tried to go a little bit outside the box with their packaging. The black and green accents actually reminds me quite alot of Shakeology. While Shakeology is much more successful in their execution, It Works is less so. This black jar of pills looks too generic and just sort of lacking in some ways to me. I think the graphical elements could all be scaled up just a bit to cover more real estate and become more prominent. This Advanced Formula Fat Fighter may very well be a powerful fat loss supplement but honestly when you look at the label you are just sort of deceived into thinking that it is just a jar full of green tea pills or something. I mean. You just don’t get the sense that inside there is a powerful product. I think for as much as I love Slender Blend Capsules, that packaging also suffers just a little bit. Now I’m not saying it has to be as edgy and extreme looking as Performix SST, but I think there is a ton of middle ground that they could have ‘edged’ into to make the product look more effective. I give It Works Fat Fighter a C plus on this criteria.

It Works Fat Fighter Review Summary: 

  • It Works Fat Fighter Performance Grade: 8.0
  • It Works Fat Fighter Formula Grade: 9.0
  • It Works Fat Fighter Packaging Grade: 7.6
  • It Works Fat Fighter Value Grade: 9.0

Here are the facts people: Fat Fighter is well formulated, relatively effective, and ridiculously well-priced at just $23.00. I’m not saying this is the most powerful fat burner you can buy, but it is certainly a fair value. I mean. Who doesn’t love a bargin?*
