Carb Trim



It's a drink that supposedly blocks up to 66% of the carbs that we eat. It's iced tea that comes in two flavors, lemon and apple. Its main ingredient is white bean extract, a preparation that, according to studies, prevents the enzyme Amylase from breaking down carbohydrates into absorbable glucose components.

We tried Carb Trim and drank a glass everyday for 10 days, before a carb-filled meal. We were expecting something to happen to our poop (where else will the unbroken carbs go?). Surprisingly, we saw no change. We just became gassy and peed a lot.


Did we lose weight after drinking Carb Trim? No. Not a single pound. So we wondered: does Carb Trim really work? Is the ten-day period too short? Or maybe we're eating just the right amount of carbs, that there's nothing to block? We must admit, we became suspicious.

Nevertheless, we enjoyed drinking Carb Trim. Both flavors were delicious. The fruity flavors were pronounced. The sweetness was also just right.


Carb Trim is available at leading supermarkets and drugstores.

  3. It slows down assimilation of carbohydrates into sugar which causes people to go fat. Drinking carbtrim may actually have the same effect as eating pork n beans (hunts) with a meal due to phaseolus vulgaris, the scientific name of white kidney beans. (The statement below is from a study of people given substance similar to carbtrim.

    After 30 days, subjects receiving Phaseolus vulgaris extract with a carbohydrate-rich, 2000- to 2200-calorie diet had significantly (p<0.001) greater reduction of body weight, BMI, fat mass, adipose tissue thickness, and waist,/hip/ thigh circumferences while maintaining lean body mass compared to subjects receiving placebo.

    1. What makes it so sweet though if there's no added sugar as per label?

  5. I've been drinking CarbTrim for more than two months and I lost 3kgs. But with that, I also eliminated drinking sodas and munching on chips. Didn't make me feel pooping whenever. It's just like drinking your everyday iced tea. I can say it's effective! Just don't be complacent that eating a lot of carbs just so you're taking CarbTrim is just okay. You still have to watch your calorie intake.

    1. most likely it's your cutting down on soda & chips that made you lose the 3 kilos.

  6. I'm actually shocked with my experience. I bought two packs of Carbtrim, the lemon flavored one and the apple flavored one. For 12 days, I've gone from 80 kgs to 76 kgs. That's without exercise. I sweat a lot too. Why? I just do. So, I think this drink is very effective.

  7. Guys, don't drink this! Just drink some green tea in Lipton or Twinings! They're so much healthier!

  8. Probably you do not exercise at all or you consume more carbohydrates thinking in mind that you have carb trim to block the carbs.
