GNC Total Lean Burn 60 is an over the counter weight loss pill sold by the massive General Nutrition Centers brand. This product is marketed as a pill that dieters can take to boost the ease and speed of their body’s fat burning.
What is GNC Total Lean Burn 60?
According to the official website for GNC Total Lean Burn 60, this product is a “clinically proven” formula providing thermogenesis through its ingredients. This is meant to help boost the user’s metabolism, while burning calories and raising energy levels. The claims about this product are that by using powerful ingredients, these tablets will enhance the overall metabolic rate.
This product is not meant to do the job all on its own. Its use isn’t just a matter of swallowing a pill and watching fat burn away. To be fair, no product has ever been proven to do that, whether in the prescription or non-prescription diet pill markets. Instead, this product is recommended by its manufacturer alongside a healthy diet and exercise program that is provided with the purchase of these pills.

It is very important to note that the claim of 60 percent calorie burning is based on research that was not published in a peer reviewed journal. In fact, the actual method and details of the study were not provided by the company on its website. It only stated that an unknown number of participants – who may or may not have been in the pay or employ of the brand – exercised on a treadmill on two occasions. In one, they took a placebo and in the other, they took this formula. This is not the type of science that is accepted by the scientific or medical communities.
