Secret Diet Drops is a weight loss supplement in liquid form. The drops are produced by in Scotland by Secret Diet Drops LTD.
All sales are made via the company website and the product is available to customers all over the world.
The company website contains several pictures of bikini-clad women and the distinct absence of the male of the species suggests Secret Diet Drops has been designed with women in mind, but there is no reason why men could not use the product as well. The big question is will the product live up to the hype?
Usage and Promised Benefits
The liquid comes in a small bottle that looks similar to the ones used for eye drops. The dose is fifteen drops, taken three times a day, in a glass of water, but Secret Diet Drops is not intended for use as a stand-alone product, users of the product are also required to follow a severely low-calorie diet plan called the “protocol”.
The manufacturers claim their product is the “The secret protocol of the rich and famous”, a statement that can be neither proved nor disproved because the whole thing is a secret.
The drops are also touted as being revolutionary in the treatment of obesity, but no evidence of this can be provided either because everything is such a closely guarded secret that “they do not want you to know about”. Who are “they”? Ssssh! It’s a secret.
How the drops are supposed to work is the biggest secret of all. It may be they are designed to take the edge off the hunger pangs caused by their protocol, but some of the ingredients are known to help with fat metabolism.
No inclusion rates are provided though, so how effective the product is likely to be is anyone’s guess.
Secret Diet Drops contain over 20 ingredients:—
L-Omithine, L-Arginine, L-Glutamine, Tryosine, Tryptophan, Beta-Alanine, Chromium, (irvingia gabonensis), Grapefruit Powder, Green Tea Leaf Extract EGCG, Glycyrrhizin Extract, Panax Ginseng, Maca Powder Extract, Grapeseed Extract Pyruvate, Blue Green Algae, Ginger Root, Guarana, Garcinia, Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), Capsicum.
The drops may or may not also contain African mango and L-carnitine, and the manufacturers seem to consider these interchangeable:
These two ingredients offer very different benefits, and are not at all similar; so a statement like this is does not inspire confidence.
The protocol is divided into three parts and involves a worryingly low nutritional intake.
- Loading Phase (2 days): Normal eating is permitted; the only difference is the addition of the diet drops.
- Diet Phase (43 days): No food is allowed at breakfast. Tea and coffee is permitted, but sugar is not. Milk is also allowed, but a single spoonful of milk is the total daily allowance. Lunch can be either a tub of cottage cheese or a single egg. Another option is 100g of fish or meat, served with 100g of vegetables. Butter of oil is forbidden. The same options are allowed for the evening meal. Two snacks a day are also allowed (1 apple or ½ grapefruit etc.).
- Maintenance Phase (6 weeks): Once the drops have been finished, the daily calorie intake can be increased to between 1,500 to 1,800. This is done over a period of three weeks. Starchy food can then be reintroduced to the diet over the following three weeks.
A money back guarantee is offered, but several ridiculous conditions need to be met before it can be satisfied, including supplying proof that medical advice was sought before commencing the protocol.
The Customer Feedback
Customers are encouraged to leave feedback via the company Facebook page, but many consumers complain that any negative feedback is swiftly removed. Independent reviews are mostly negative and many consumers complain that the diet has made them feel ill.
The Side Effects and Possible Health Issues
The product has never been tested and the absence of inclusion rates makes it impossible to predict the possible side effects. The Secret Diet Drops protocol is also a cause for concern because adhering to such a strict regimen will starve the body of vital nutrients and may present major health risks, so it is strongly suggested that medical advice be sought before contemplating the use of this system.
This is a well named product because many important details about the diet drops remain a secret.
- Exact ingredients
- Inclusion rates
- How the product is supposed to work
Following the Secret Diet Drops protocol should probably ensure some weight loss—without the need for the drops—because it is little more than a starvation diet, but the potential risks to the health far outweigh any possible benefits and independent feedback suggests that many users have already found this out the hard way. There are many tried and tested, safer alternatives available, so consumers are advised to look elsewhere.
