Raspberry Ketone Diet Exposed: Miracle Diet or Scam?

By on March 27, 2013

Raspberry Ketones are the latest weight loss fad. This weight loss superfood has been getting a lot of international attention. Some consider these pills a miracle diet; others think it is scam.

Like you have probably already seen, Raspberry Ketones are all over the internet in blogs and success stories of people who have used the best Raspberry Ketone pills and lost a ton of weight. Here at Women Magazine, we are a little skeptical. We aren’t sure that we’ve seen any real proof that the Raspberry Ketone pills work for weight loss. So, we decided to put these products to the test. What better way to find out the truth than to conduct our own fat burner review?

To get started, I volunteered to be the guinea pig. I applied for a bottle of Raspberry Ketone. While there are many emerging Raspberry Ketone ads online, Raspberry Ultra Ketone is one of the most credible and trustworthy suppliers on the market and is considered to have the best Raspberry Ketone products available. This site had the best deal for the product and it did not try to fool me into agreeing to additional hidden offers. Another reason why I chose Raspberry Ultra Ketone is because it is the most concentrated and purest Raspberry Ketone product on the market. This would give me the most accurate results for my test.

Here is what Raspberry Ultra Ketone claimed on their website…

  • 4 Times More Weight Loss Than Diet And Exercise
  • Boosts Energy Throughout the Day
  • Effective Appetite Suppressant
  • Works Quickly, Proven Results

We were pretty skeptical but wanted to find out for ourselves if this product could actually do everything that it claimed. Most of the success stories talk about combining Raspberry Ultra Ketone with colon cleansing products to achieve maximum weight loss. I decided to do the same.

The idea behind combining the products is that while the Raspberry Ultra Ketone encourages weight loss and increases energycolon cleansing helps rid your body of toxins and allows your body to work and burn calories more efficiently. So I chose Zen Cleanse to test.

Here is what Zen Cleanse claimed on their website…

  • Helps Eliminate Bad Toxins that have Built Up Over the Years
  • Removes ‘Sludge’ from the Walls of the Colon
  • Helps Get Rid of Gas and Bloating
  • Helps to Regulate the Metabolism

And the Zen Cleanse, like the Raspberry Ultra Ketone, had an amazingly low price with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and had no hidden offers.

Putting Raspberry Ultra Ketone to the Test

Both the Raspberry Ultra Ketone and Zen Cleanse arrived within 4 days of having placed my order online.

The bottles I received held a month’s worth of intake which worked out perfect as I was to follow the supplement routine for 4 weeks time and document my progress throughout. The ideal Raspberry Ketone dosage is two pills a day, one in the morning and one before bed.

My 4-Week Raspberry Ketone Diet Test : Raspberry Ultra Ketone + Zen Cleanse

My Results

Week One

After one week on the diet using both products I was surprised at the dramatic results. My energy level was up, and I wasn’t even hungry, an apparent effect of the Raspberry Ultra Ketone which curbs the appetite.

I honestly felt fantastic.

And I didn’t even change anything about my daily routine; I just added the Raspberry Ketones and supplement. On day 7 I got on the scale and couldn’t believe my eyes. I had lost 9 pounds. But I still wasn’t convinced as they say you lose a lot of water at the beginning of any diet. I wanted to wait and see the results in the upcoming weeks. But it sure was looking up! I now weighed under 140 pounds for the first time in years!

Week Two

After two weeks of using both supplements, I started the week off with even more energy and was actually sleeping more soundly than before. I was no longer waking up during the night and tossing and turning because my body was actually able to relax (this is a result of getting rid of the toxins I think). Plus I still managed to lose another 7 pounds, putting me at an unbelievable 16 pounds of weight loss, in just 2 weeks.

I must admit that I’m starting to believe that this Raspberry Ketone diet is more than just a gimmick.

Week Three

After 3 weeks all my doubts and skepticism had absolutely vanished! I am down, 2 full dress sizes, after losing another 6 pounds. And I still have a ton of energy. Quite often, around the third week of other diets, you tend to run out of steam. But with the Raspberry Ultra Ketone and Zen Cleanse diet my energy levels don’t dip, but remain steady throughout the day. I no longer need that cat nap around 3pm in the afternoon! And I am even noticing that my stomach is digesting food so much better. No bloating or embarrassing gas after I eat!

Week Four

After the fourth week, my final results were shocking. I lost an unbelievable 25 pounds since starting the Raspberry Ultra Ketone and Zen Cleanse diet! Actually everyone at Women Magazine is kicking themselves for not having volunteered to be the guinea pig. Using the Raspberry Ultra Ketone and Zen Cleanse in week 4 I lost 3 more pounds. But to be honest I really didn’t have much more than that left to lose. And I am definately going to continue taking the Raspberry Ultra Ketone afterwards because it has so many antioxidants and vitamins that makes my skin look unbelievable.

I couldn’t be any happier with the results.
I Lost 25 pounds in 4 Weeks, No Special Diet,
No Intense Exercise


Like us, here at Women Magazine, you might be a little doubtful about the effects of this Raspberry Ketone diet, but you need to try it for yourself; the results are real. After conducting our own personal study we are pleased to see that people really are finding success with it (myself included!).

Here’s How You Can Try These Diet For Yourself

Follow the links to the diet products I have provided and know that you are getting quality products that work – no strings attached! Remember, the best results are from using both products together. I’m not as confident that you will see results like what I achieved if you only use one. Besides, with the discounted shipping costs you’ll be on your way to looking much slimmer and better for the best deal possible.

But hurry! Our report has generated a lot of buzz and these amazing weightloss supplements won’t be available forever!

Good Luck with your weight loss!

    I bought my friend some raspberry ketone drops as a gift so that she won’t have to starve herself to lose weight. But on the bottle it does not tell you how you are supposed to take it. So I’m not sure if you just drop them in your mouth or in your food. Please help.!!

    • Rebecca

      June 28, 2013 at 11:30 pm

      I read you are suppose to take one drop of a morning into your mouth. Hope that helps :)

    I went into the GNC yesterday in search of some healthy- yet effective weight loss supplements. I was thinking about trying Hoodia again, but a jar of Raspberry Ketones caught my eye. Has anyone lost weight, or known someone that has because of them?

    I’m considering buying this plus version pill from evolution slimming, it has african mango and green tea in it as well as the raspberry ketones that were hailed a miracle weight loss pill on the box last week.
    Anyone tried them yet? Results? No smart answers about being fat please.

  9. Dark_LovexXx

    March 28, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    If so, does it matter what brand? Does it matter if its Pure Raspberry Ketone or has to have the ingredients green tea with it? I heard its the ketone that starts the fat burning? Really need to know. And yes I exercise and eat healthy, once a week treat myself.

    Dr. Oz said taking a raspberry ketone supplement can help with weight loss… but will it effect hormonal birth control pills?

    I’m thinking of buying raspberry ketone but some reviews say that they don’t work and some say they really do. Is there a particular brand I should buy or something? Also if I stop taking the raspberry ketone because i think i have lost enough weight, will I just put it all straight back on again? because i dont want to be buying these for the rest of my life as they are quite expensive.

    Thanks in advance

    I’m 15 and I was wondering if I can take raspberry ketones. I heard they were really good and healthy to help you lose weight and I need to lose weight because I’m really overweight.

    • Lauren

      May 31, 2013 at 2:56 pm

      same here, I’m also 15 & I desperately need to loose the weight, but I’m scared to take them because it says not to, i’m wondering, what’re the consequences?

      • Julia Miller

        May 31, 2013 at 3:14 pm

        Hello Lauren, I would suggest against taking Raspberry Ketone Pills if you are under the age of 18. I would instead consult with your parents for the best method to weightloss and also try regular exercise and a healthy diet.

    I’m looking to try to lose weight and while I know diet and exercise is the foundation, I just wanted to know if adding raspberry ketones in the mix would be worth it. I keep reading online and its hard to know what are real answers from people so that’s why I’m asking this question. Also I’ve read that raspberry ketone burn is a good brand. Any response to that?

  21. Bryant B

    Okay so I keep hearing about how raspberry ketone is so good for you but how does it actually work for losing weight??

    I saw that raspberry ketone supplements are great for weight loss and boosting metabolism on Dr.Oz. I am 17 and about 130 pounds, looking to lose a few inches of fat around my waist. I exercise regularly and eat fairly healthy. Has anyone tried raspberry ketone? Any recommendations? I am looking for one that works for the lowest price possible.

    I am working out and on a diet. I take 2 pills of raspberry ketones per day each of which are 125mg. Should I take more mg? Or is there a brand recommended? Also what do you think of the that green pill dr.oz recommended too?

    Thanks everyone!

      On the bottle that I have it says to take a serving (3pills) in the AM w/ food & a serving 6 hrs later w/ an afternoon meal or snack, each time w/ 8 oz of water. It says.. DO NOT exceed 6 caplets within a 24-hr period. DO NOT take within 5 hrs of bedtime. This product should be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise program.
      The serving on my bottle says 3 pills.

    Hi everyone,

    I want to try a raspberry ketone supplement for weight loss, does anyone know how much I should take? I have read a lot of conflicting info. Some people say you should take only a few hundred mg per day, while others say that you won’t see any results unless you take a lot more. Can anyone help shed some light on this?

    So since quitting smoking I have gained a good 30 lbs. I dont have the healthiest lifestyle and eat my share of fast food and garbage. My wife heard about raspberry ketones on Dr. OZes show. Just wondering if anyone has tried them. Are they safe? Do they work? There are so many brands when I google it, which one is a good one that gives results?
