About Realdose.com Weight Loss Formula No. 1

Weight Loss Formula No. 1, a natural supplement for losing weight, seems to be a flagship product from Realdose.com.  The ads and website are both fronted by Dr. Steven Sisskind, who does appear to be a real doctor, but it’s unclear if his involvement in the company is as a paid spokesman or direct contributor.

The supplement apparently includes several obscure herbs as primary ingredients which we have listed below along with their purported effects:

  • Blend of Piper Betle leaf and Dolichos Biflorus seed extract – The Realdose website claims that these ingredients work on a hormonal level to increase adiponectin while decreasing ghrelin levels. Increasing adiponectin is supposed to burn more fat cells while decreasing ghrelin is supposed to reduce feelings of hunger. Lower body fat is claimed to be the end result.
  • Decaffeinated Green Coffee Bean extract – It is claimed that this ingredient inhibits ingested carbohydrates from converting into fats. This is apparently accomplished by blocking glucose absorption which causes the body to utilize fat for energy instead of sugar.
  • Siberian Rhodiola Rosea – This ingredient is supposed to reduce stress, anxiety, and cortisol levels. Ultimately, it is alleged to reduce craving and belly fat caused by cortisol. Some readers may be interested in our article on Rhodiola Benefits and Side Effects.

A bottle of Realdose Weight Loss Formula No. 1 contains a 30-day supply of 90 capsules. Instructions say to take 1 capsule three times a day a half hour before meals.

The Realdose website is filled with glowing reviews of their products, yet there are two disclaimers which should be noted. One of these disclaimers proceeds several reviews on the website front page, and has been quoted below:

* Disclaimer: Results are not typical. The results observed are not associated with the effects of Weight Loss Formula No. 1 alone. You will only get results with this product if you combine it with a healthy diet and exercise program. Results may vary from individual to individual. This statement has not been evaluated by any government organization.

Another disclaimer appears at the very bottom of the website, “*These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

RealDose.com is the official product website. It was created on March 15, 2011.

RealDose Weight Loss Formula No. 1 Reviews

For a product that has been on the market for several years, it is surprisingly difficult to find objective online reviews of Weight Loss Formula No. 1. Currently, the best place to look for online user reviews appears to be Amazon, where 83 customers have given the product a collective rating of 2.9 stars out of 5. These reviews seem to be truly mixed with 27 users awarding the product with 5 stars while 27 users have also awarded it 1 star. While the 5 star reviews are glowing endorsements which claim that the product works just as advertised, the biggest negative complaints from reviewers is that the product had no effect at all.

On the FAQ of the Weight Loss Formula No. 1 page, it claims that customers can lose up to 2 pounds per week. Since RealDose also advises that users eat a healthy diet and practice a regular exercise program, it seems appropriate to question whether any weight loss achieved while taking the formula could potentially be due to other lifestyle improvements.

The RealDose website cites several studies to back up their product claims, yet these studies include a few experiments carried out on the specific individual ingredients contained within Weight Loss Formula No. 1, and not on the supplement itself.

Overall, it should be noted that RealDose maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Although they are not accredited with the BBB, the company has only received 2 complaints over the last three years, both of which have been resolved.

2013 User Reviews Update

Due to the large number of comments below, we attempted to consolidate the discussion into a more compact format by including only those comments by readers who have actually used the product. As of 2013, we found that RealDose received 55% positive reviews and 45% negative/neutral reviews. See: RealDose Reviews: 2013 Update

Bottom Line

RealDose Weight Loss Formula No. 1 is a natural dietary supplement that is supposed to aid in loss of weight by affecting hormones associated with hunger, fat usage, and stress. Weight Loss Formula No. 1 appears to have mixed reviews from online users. Roughly half of these reviews are glowing endorsements, while the other half claim that it had no effects. Although some science experiments do appear to support the claims related to the individual ingredients contained within this supplement, there are no legitimate science studies which have specifically studied RealDose Weight Loss Formula No. 1.

    Took similar product green coffee beans and was very ill to my stomach had to stop use to. Its the HCG in product bothered me stomach lining must be I have sensitive stomach and apparently others out there do to. Pain and cramping discomfort while taking product.

  • Miss Kate

    Very nice reviews and formula for weight loss thanks for the sharing it with us.

  • Shenika L Crowell

    I’ve been using formula 1 for about two weeks. I have noticed I’m more sleepy. I assume that’s because one of the ingredients claims to help you rest better. My cravings are still the same but I’m not able to eat as much. I’m not experiencing any stomach cramps or dizziness. I’m also losing weight without a special diet or consistent exercise. I would say it may work differently for different people. It’s working for me so far.

    After my 2nd baby, I found it very difficult to loose the weight. I was almost 100% certain that its hormone related. Ive gained more weight aswell in the last 18 months with regular gym session. Eating low carb high protein diet. Anyway, my gp said my weight gain could be anything or my birth control pills. I have been taking realdose for 3 weeks now. I have been keeping tabs of how much I weight I loose from week to week.

    Week 1: Slow. Eating whatever I want. No extra energy. Constipated but lost 3kg.

    Week 2. Accelerated. Still eating what I feel like but seem to loose my appetite for food. Can only eat so little at a time. I must say I am feeling more tired at week 2. However, I lost a massive 6.5kg. It has helped me sleep better as well at night.

    Week 3. Amazing results. More energy. No longer constipated. Really have no desire for cakes or any type of sweet. Still eating whatever I feel like. Lost 6Kg from last wednesday to now (tuesday). My husband and now I have noticed though that I am a bit more moody in the last 2 weeks. Not sure if Im just stress at work, but I do get irritated more easily lately.

    To date I have lost 15.5kg in 3 weeks with no restriction on my diet and I can hardly call walking up and down the stairs a work out. It has worked for me but it does have it sides effect that could have been either a conincidence or something else. I bought the 3 months supplies so no regret there. This is also the first time Ive ever used a diet pill. Thank goodness its working.

    The stomach pains are caused by eating foods that are not good for you, and eating to much of them. The pills help you to make wise food choices and portion control. I have been on the formula 1 for 3 1/2 months now, and have lost 20 pounds. My husband has asked me to back off to only one per day, because he doesn’t want me to lose any more weight. I am 45 yrs old, and have been battling the 10 to 15 lbs of extra weight since I was in college. I would feel bad about myself for thinking I didn’t have enough will power, or self control. But, after discovering this formula, I realized it was the Hormones that needed to be balance, so I could make the smart choices.
    You cannot eat junk on these pills, because it wants to eliminate it and not absorb it. So, you get a tummy ache and bowel issues.
    I think this is the answer to many peoples prayers of a good weight loss product :)

    Also add in what you where eating daily and how much exercise and be honest, Exercise is hard and not many have the discipline to endure to keep on going, All these ingredients are legit if they are the real deal should be working well

    I’d add in more enhancement type subs with eating clean and training with a all round exercise routine for the best results and remember losing weight is the hard and it’s not easy and takes a lot of time that is just a fact, Anyway good luck all.

  • anna marie scarpulla

    Like everyone else on this website, I have not lost ANY weight on these pills, and I eat right and go to the gym 4-5 days a week. I have been taking them for 2 months myself. I am going to try for a refund

  • tracy

    I have taken realise for 2 months. I was at 196lbs.I am at 185 now. At first I saw no results but continue to take them. It really controls my sweet cravings. I stopped taking them this new year. My cravings are back. I am ordering some right now

    • only4jus

      Try a natural herb like gymnema for sugar/sweet craving
