Ab Cuts Overview

Ab Cuts calls itself not a quick fix, but a permanent change.

It’s actually a total line of weight loss supplement products, including:

  • Ab Cuts CLA
  • Sleek and Lean
  • Lipo Cuts
  • Ab Cuts Advanced

The one we’re looking at today is their flagship product, the CLA Belly Fat formula.

It’s designed to use fatty acids in a liqui-gel format to work with your body to give you that lean, sleek core you’ve been longing for.

It’s not a fat burner in the traditional sense.

There are no stimulants to get you hyped up and jittery.

Just carefully chosen ingredient to help your body use fat efficiently, raise your metabolism, and increase antioxidant activity.

Ab Cuts ReviewAb Cuts Ingredients and How They Work

The Ab Cuts formula consists entirely of healthy oils used basically to encourage your body to burn fat.

The list includes:

  • CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) from Safflower Oil which may help reduce body fat and increase lean muscle mass.
  • EPA and DHA from Omega 3 Fish Oil which provide many healthful benefits including a reduction of body fat.
  • GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid) from Borage Oil which helps support a healthy metabolism.
  • ALA (Alpha Linoleic Acid) from Flax Seed Oil which is another healthy Omega 3 fatty acid which improves the health of your immune system.
  • Sesame Seed Oil which may promote a healthy hormone balance, better muscle tone, and decreased body fat.
  • Vitamin E for its antioxidant properties, keeping cells safe from free radial damage.

With no stimulants to make you jittery or to lead to the inevitable crash, this supplement isn’t about workout energy, instead it’s about turning your body into a healthy fat-burning machine.

You’re instructed to take 2 softgel capsules with every meal for a total of 6 capsules a day.


What is CLA and How Will it Help me to Lose Weight?

Conjugated linoleic acid (or CLA as the cool kids call it) is a fatty acid that naturally occurs in foods such as meat and dairy.

CLA has loads of health benefits.

It’s good for our skin, and it acts to reduce overall body fat while increasing lean muscle mass. Source

How does it Work?

Apparently, CLA is a healthy fat and takes the place of other unhealthy fats and calories.

Right, so you might ask, “Well if my food contains CLA, why can’t I just eat tons of steak and ice cream to get my healthy doses?” In a perfect world you could get away with this.

But these foods only contain low-levels of CLA, and the risks associated with stuffing your face with steak and ice cream all day long greatly outweigh any potential benefits (bummer, I know).

There have been several clinical studies conducted on CLA, and all of the studies I found claim CLA does actually work to reduce body fat.

In one study, Jean-Michel Gaullier Ph.D found that CLA did work to shed a few pounds off of his participants. . .

Another study titled ‘Conjugated Linoleic Acid Reduces Body Fat in Healthy Exercising Humans’ found that “Body fat, measured using near infrared light, was significantly reduced in the CLA group during the study, but not in the placebo group.”

Yup, seems legit.


Interestingly enough, the study goes on to say that “CLA reduces body fat but not body weight in healthy exercising humans of normal body weight.” (emphasis mine)Source

Can CLA Really Target Belly Fat?

Yes and no.

While it can help you to lose belly fat, it doesn’t isolate and specifically target that area.

From what I’ve seen and read, most experience fat loss in their legs and hips.

Although, some have had great results when it comes to dropping that belly bulge too.

Is CLA Even Worth it?

Well, for what it’s worth, WebMD once said of the stuff: “Conjugated Linoleic acid is a contender for the weight-loss miracle pill.” That’s a bold claim from a trusted source.

So there’s that.

What are the Ab Cuts Reviews Saying?

I scoured the web, poured through Amazon reviews, and even watched some videos to help round out a clear picture of what you might expect while taking Ab Cuts CLA.

First, for the Amazon reviews.

The softgels get an average of 3.7 stars, while the Ab Cuts capsules come in at a slightly better 4.1 stars overall.

One woman, who also happens to be a MOTHER of THREE(!), claims that after taking Ab Cuts CLA her abs are tighter than they were before having kids.

Not bad. . .

The following review, although positive, reminds us that there’s no magic bullet when it comes to weight loss.

You can’t just take the pill and expect to see results overnight.

So keep in mind, patience is a virtue with Ab Cuts. . .

Finally, here is a review left on the capsules.

Remember, the Ab Cuts capsules got slightly better ratings and reviews than the soft gels.

Some users complained of bloating, but the general consensus on Amazon is that people like Ab Cuts CLA and the results they’re getting.

I also came across a pretty solid video review in my hunt for the lowdown on Ab Cuts.

The woman in the video, Ciara, was working out 3 times per week (cardio and weights) and was just looking to “tighten up” for beach season.

She took Ab Cuts CLA for nearly a month, taking 3 servings per day as recommended. Well, here’s the video.

You can see the results for yourself:

Needless to say, she was pleased with her results.

In fact, she said herself that she’s “really, really pleased” with the fat loss.

Although she experienced bloating at first, it went away after the first week.

And she saw fat reduction in her hips, thighs, and abs.

At the end of the review, she went on about how she scored a cheap bottle of 80 softgels at Walmart, a better deal than the $40 or $50 that GNC slings them for (that is, when they sell them.Right now they’re out of stock).

You go Ciara.

The latest and greatest from Ab Cuts — Ab Cuts Advanced — is pretty much the same thing as Ab Cuts CLA, only with more concentrated CLA levels.

To be exact, it’s now 95% concentrated, which means you only have to take 2 pills once per day.

If you’re counting, that’s two fewer doses than Ab Cuts CLA. Not too shabby.

Here’s a full list of the Ab Cuts Advanced ingredients:

On Amazon the product goes for only $11 for two bottles of 60 softgels.Ab Cuts Advanced seems to get about the same reviews (3.7 stars) as the CLA version (Probably because it’s the SAME product) but it might be a smart choice if you’re one who easily forgets to take your vitamins and supplements.


Ab Cuts Pros and Cons

Advantages of Ab Cuts

  • There are lots of positive Ab Cuts reviews from people who mainly say that it makes them feel less full.

    Of course, you’ll only see real results if you combine it with a healthy diet and exercise program.
  • There are no stimulants to make you wired or uncomfortable.
  • Ab Cuts has several formulas to choose from.

Disadvantages of Ab Cuts

  • They talk about targeting belly fat, but you really can’t target fat loss.

    When a product makes impossible claims, it takes away from their credibility.
  • It seems lots of users are under the impression that you don’t have to follow a diet and exercise program to get results from Ab Cuts.

    This is just plain not true.

Where to Buy


You can purchase Ab Cuts CLA through their website, on Amazon, or at Walmart and Costco.

If you’re looking for this product, it’s not hard to find.

On the AbCuts.com website, 120 softgels go for $23.99.

Walmart has the product for $19.29.

And of course, Amazon.com sells it the cheapest for $17.74.

Costco sells a product called ‘Ab Cuts CLA Enhanced’ (not to be confused with ‘Advanced’) for $29.99. I’m assuming this is Ab Cuts latest take on the CLA formula.

GNC used to sell Ab Cuts CLA, but now I’m only seeing the Sleek & Lean formula for sale on their website.


If you use Ab Cuts correctly and along with a healthy reduced-calorie diet and exercise program, it will help you lose weight.But it won’t specifically target your belly or your core.

It also isn’t a traditional fat burner that pumps you up for your workouts, so if you do choose to try Ab Cuts, you’ll want to add a fat burner or pre workout to your plan as well.
