Carb Crush review

Carb Crush is a dietary supplement created by BASE Nutrition LLC. It is a “cheat meal solution” that claims to allow you the freedom to indulge on the carbs you love to eat – guilt free – while minimizing weight gain.

How is this possible? According to the official product website, you simply need to take 3 pills, 30 minutes before your next “cheat meal” and then “pig out on that cheat meal you deserve and crave!” More specifically, the patented ingredient within the formula – Delphinol – blocks unwanted carbs and sugars. So, when you want to indulge once in a while to make a grueling diet a little easier to stick to, you can without feeling guilty or suffering the consequences.

With claims like these, right away Carb Crush raises some red flags. For starters, if you happen to be following a healthful, nutrient dense, calorie-conscious diet and are engaging in regular exercise, if you indulged in a “cheat meal” every now and again, it’s not going to have an effect on your weight loss progress, even if you don’t take Carb Crush. The reason is that as long as an indulgence is enjoyed on occasion and isn’t a lifestyle, any potential negative effects it might have on your weight loss goals won’t be long lasting.

Secondly, the concern that arises from a product like Carb Crush is that it is likely to encourage dieters to cheat more on their diets. The reason is they may think that taking these pills before indulging in cheat meals means that they can indulge in more of these meals more frequently because the pills will protect them from the negative consequences.

As for the actual formula, when this review was written, the ingredients included: Delphinol, Grape Seed Extract and Chromium. Each of these ingredients requires more scientific research to determine what effects they have on the body and how they work.

For instance, although the claim is that chromium can increase lean muscle mass, increase calories burned and reduce appetite, this is unproven. Delphinol, a patented form of Maqui Berry, is believed to help reduce blood sugar, increase good cholesterol, decrease bad cholesterol, and reduce glycated hemoglobin as well as have anit-aging and anti-inflammatory effects. There is no clinical evidence to support these claims. Finally, Grape Seed Extract contains antioxidants and may help with high cholesterol and is believed to be beneficial for many cardiovascular conditions.

The bottom line is that there is no hard evidence to prove that Carb Crush can live up to its claims and dieters may be more tempted to use this product as an excuse to indulge in more cheat meals, which – in the long run – will only lead to more weight gain.
