    My main question was whether or not dieting pills such as Hydroxycut, Ripped Fuel pills by GNC actually work. I did a search of bodybuilding.com and it was pretty neutral. Some took the pills and others just maintained a proper diet. If anybody could give me any guidance, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Btw, I'm starting to get back in the gym. I want to put on mass as well as be cut at the same time, not sure if that seems contradicting or what not. Anyways, I started eating more healthy, have 4-5 meals daily, drink lots of water, and of course have my protein shakes 3 times a day, usually in the morning, afternoon, and evenings.

    Usually consists of 75g, so getting approximately 225g of protein and currently weigh 155lbs.

    Don't take them if you are trying to put on weight.

    You won't be able to put on significant mass while trying to lose fat. You may put on some muscle (I did it a while back before I knew shit about shit) but unless you're eating like a horse, it's going to be way slower than it could be.

    So I guess the best thing I should do is pick one of the two. If I either want to get cut up or gain mass, since it'll be harder to do the two at the same time, correct?

    In my experience they have done a good job in getting excess water out of my body and acting as a placebo to not be as hungry.

    Besides that it was a waste of money. Others might disagree.

    If you aren't already big, cutting probaly wouldn't make you look like you think it would. So i would suggest bulking.

    i've used hydroxycut, xenadrine and ripped fuel. i lost the most weight with xenadrine, but i like ripped fuel better..it's all in the diet and workout, you can't take these pills and eat anything, you still have to maintain a cutting diet...
    some of my friends take it an eat whatever junk they want and expect to lose weight, doesn't work that way. i lost about 40 ppunds using xenadrine, but my workout routine and diet was rigourous

    I have used the Hydroxycut Hardcore the most recent, but I am currently using MuscleTech (Thermo Shred on Cardio days, and Thermo Gain all others)
    I mainly use it for the pep-up before hitting the weights...5:00am comes early!!!!
