Our busy work lives mean quite often we end up eating out or consuming too much convenience food. As a result a large number of us are consuming more high fat and high calorie foods than we are burning off.
In this climate, the number of fat burning supplements being marketed to both men and women has risen exponentially.
Many claim to be the ‘magic pill’ that will allow you to continue with your lifestyle and lose weight with minimal effort.
While others are more sensible and promise to work in conjunction with lifestyle and diet changes to give you the results you seek.
In this review we will look at Leanbean and Fitmiss Tone, and compare the following in relation to them:
• The company behind the product
• Servings required
• Ingredients and dosages
• Side effects
• Price evaluation
We will then declare at the end which supplement we believe is better value for money and will give you the fat burning boost you need.
Summary of Leanbean:
• Is only available directly from the manufacturer
• Has a low level of stimulants
• Speeds up fat burning
• Increases metabolism
• Reduces hunger
• Vegetarian and natural supplement
• Marketed at women
• Contains 12 ingredients
Summary of Fitmiss Tone:
• Supports reduced body fat
• Supports body shaping and toning
• Increases metabolism
• Marketed at women
• Contains just three ingredients
Both supplements, therefore, claim to encourage fat burning and increase metabolism. What remains to be seen is whether these claims can be substantiated.
They are also both aimed at women.
Leanbean is a reputable company and is manufactured by Ultimate Life, an expert in the sports supplement field.
All its manufacturing is done in FDA-approved facilities, which has earned the trust of its customers. The supplement is available to buy from their website directly.
Fitmiss Tone, on the other hand, is manufactured by MusclePharm, which has a whole range of supplements.
The supplement can be bought on various websites, including Amazon and eBay. MusclePharm is one of the more established players in the world of women’s workout supplements. Therefore, we would expect this supplement to do well in this review. But let’s see!
Both supplements are packaged in attractive colors. It’s clear that they are both being marketed to women.
Leanbean is a soft pink with a simple heart on the front, which suggests it will improve your overall health. Fitmiss Tone is in a black and purple bottle, which is also striking and attractive.
The number of servings you need to take of any supplement is an important consideration. This is because you want to be taking it frequently enough to have beneficial ingredients in your system around the clock.
The human body is like a big metabolic system that digests and excretes regularly. Therefore, a supplement you are only taking once in the morning will have little impact by the afternoon.
How to take Leanbean?
It is recommended to take the supplement four times a day, preferably before meals. Each bottle contains 120 pills, meaning that it will last you a month.
In contrast, Fitmiss Tone directions state it is to be taken three times a day. However, each bottle only contains 60 pills. This means that it won’t last you the whole month.
We need to take a closer and overall comparative look at the ingredients in both supplements. This will help us determine their value for money and fat burning effectiveness as a whole.
Leanbean contains a total of 12 ingredients, compared to a mere three in Fitmiss Tone.
Leanbean ingredients label:
Leanbean ingredients include some great weight loss aids, including: green coffee, acai berry, green tea extract, turmeric powder, garcinia cambogia, cayenne powder, black pepper, raspberry ketones and more.
Fitmiss Tone ingredients label:
Fitmiss Tone ingredients are: avocado oil, olive oil, and CLA.
As you can see, there are absolutely no common ingredients between the two supplements.
This is worrying in some respects. The best fat burning and weight-loss ingredients are well known, and you would expect to see at least some overlap between two supplements that claim to do the same thing.
Both supplements are very transparent about the ingredients and quantities they contain. This is a good thing. However, this is where the similarities end.
Leanbean includes efficient and powerful ingredients, such as cayenne pepper and turmeric. They are proven to boost metabolism and burn through calories rapidly.
Green tea extract is also highly effective due to its fat burning properties.
By comparison, the ingredients in Fitmiss Tone are a little baffling. It is being marketed as a CLA product. CLA stands for Conjugated Linoleic Acid. This is basically a substance that is found in red meat.
While some studies have appeared to show that it has fat-burning benefits, there are also a number of studies that show the complete opposite.
Olive oil and avocado oil also both have numerous health benefits. They may help to make you feel full and thus reduce calorie intake. This, however, is not a surety, and there are better and more proven weight-loss ingredients out there.
The fact that Leanbean contains natural and common ingredients means that there are less likely to be side effects.
However, since they are large in number a small proportion of people may discover an intolerance to one or two of them.
When it comes to the Fitmiss Tone reviews, some people have reported suffering headaches during the day. This may be down to the high fat content in the pills or it may simply be down to a lack of balance in the diet if consumers are not eating enough.
This is an important section for most people since you don’t want to be throwing your hard-earned money at things that aren’t going to bring you the results you want. Comparatively, the price difference between the two supplements is quite striking.
Leanbean’s best price is $59 per bottle of 120 pills. If the recommended dosage of four a day is taken, then the bottle will last you a month.
There are discounts available for multiple and batch purchases. The pills can also be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website. You won’t be able to find Leanbean on Amazon.
Leanbean coupons may be available occasionally from some promotional sites, but we couldn’t find any at the time of writing. It is also important to note that price of Leanbean in Canada is the same as in the US.
On the other hand, the Fitmiss Tone pricing is a bit all over the place. Perhaps suggesting the product isn’t a bestseller. It is currently retailing at $18.99 on the official website and $28.49 on Amazon. The Fitmiss Tone price on GNC is $16.99 for 60 capsules.
The fact you only get half the number of capsules with Fitmiss Tone means that the ‘price per pill’ is not too far away from Leanbean price. A bottle, however, won’t last you a whole month if the recommended dosage of three pills a day is taken.
There are special bundle offers available on occasions, such as the Fitmiss Burn and Tone bundle, and Fitmiss Burn and Tone pack.
Despite Leanbean carrying the higher price tag in this instance overall, we think it’s better value for money. This is because it contains far more proven and science-backed fat burning ingredients.
Fitmiss Tone contains a mere three ingredients, which many users have reported gave them no fat burning results. It made them feel healthier overall and more energetic, but that is where it ended for them.
Since the manufacturer is well known for female sports supplements, we are at a loss at why it appears to have failed at this one.
Thus, there are no prizes for guessing that we feel Leanbean is the winning supplement as far as weight loss benefits go.
It contains a proven blend of fat burning ingredients like cayenne pepper, green tea extract and others.
Its four-pill-a-day dosage is also ideal, since it encourages fat burning throughout the day and the ingredients are more likely to stay in your system for longer.
