Hunger Buddy is a weight management product developed by XLS-Medical. It has been formulated to “fight food cravings and snack attacks.” It also claims to cut portion sizes, promotes satiety and reduces portion sizes. It is sold in a unique package, a convenient and easy-to-use push dispenser.

The manufacturer claims that Hunger Buddy is an effective appetite suppressant. Even the product’s label claims that 94% of those who took Hunger Buddy experienced a feeling of fullness.

Sounds impressive, so what’s in the Hunger Buddy formula you might wonder? When this Hunger Buddy review was written, an ingredients list could not be found, which immediately makes one wonder just how reliable its appetite suppressant claims are.

According to the official product page on the XLS-Medical website, “Hunger Buddy swells up to 200x its original size like a balloon and forms a thick, indigestible gel, which fills up to 30-43% of the stomach.” This, in turn, slows down digestion, promoting a feeling of fullness.

Since this is the case, this could mean that an ingredient, such as glucomannan, may be a part of the formula as this water-soluble fiber is known to expand in the stomach, and is often used as an appetite suppressant and for producing feelings of satiety in weight loss dietary supplements. However, as there is no supplement facts for this product, it isn’t known for certain if glucomannan is among its ingredients.

Can you believe the claims? Yes and no. While it does appear that Hunger Buddy was a part of a 12-week randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial, which found that 94% of people experienced a moderate to strong feeling of satiety, the findings of one study are not enough to prove that the product actually works. Moreover, even if it does produce feelings of satiety, this does not mean that weight loss will result from taking this product.

It should also be noted that although side effects from taking Hunger Buddy are likely not to be serious, possible adverse effects include mild gastrointestinal distress, bloating and constipation. Additionally, you should drink plenty of water when taking this diet pill throughout the day to avoid the risk of blockages or choking, due to its ability to expand.

The manufacturer recommends that if you want to reduce portion sizes and avoid snacking, you should take two capsules with a full glass of water 30 minutes prior to main meals, and if needed 1 or 2 capsules with a full glass of water between meals. Do not exceed 9 capsules per day and do not take this dietary supplement with other appetite reducing products.

Hunger Buddy is not a meal replacement, and for optimal results, should be taken in conjunction with a healthy and balanced diet. Talk to your doctor to make sure this product is right for you.
