Fat Away is a weight management supplement produced by Totally Natural Products. The company states they are on a mission to help people to improve their health and claims the product is the result of “countless hours” of research and development.
Totally Natural Products State Fat Away may assist weight loss in three ways:
1. By initiating fat burning
2. By increasing the metabolism
3. By curbing the desire for sugary foods
However, the formulation is not marketed as a magic pill that will melt the fat away without any hard work or sacrifice on the user’s part. The tablets are designed to be used in conjunction with the Fat Away Weight Loss Program (includes a calorie controlled diet and exercise).
Key Ingredients & Blend Potential
Each Fat Away tablet contains:
- Citrus aurantium dry fruit (Bitter orange) (3333mg): An ingredient sourced from the fruit of certain citrus trees. The active ingredient is a powerful stimulant called synephrine that is well respected for its metabolism-boosting and fat burning abilities. Synephrine can further assist weight loss by providing appetite suppression and aiding the breakdown of fat cells (lipolysis).
- Camellia sinensis dry leaf (Green Tea) (3300mg): Green tea is an extremely healthy ingredient that is rich in antioxidants, helps prevent disease, and can be particularly useful for protecting against the damaging effects of the “free radicals” found in some foods. It can also boost the metabolism and trigger thermogenic fat burning. It has proven abilities and is probably one of the most common diet pill inclusions in the world.
- Gymnema sylvestre dry leaf (1360mg): Some scientific studies indicate gymnema sylvestre may have the ability to enhance weight loss when combined with hydroxycitric acid (HCA) and niacin-bound chromium, but the Fat Away formulation provides neither of these ingredients. What level of benefit gymnema sylvestre is likely to provide without them is hard to say.
- Fucus vesiculosus dry (Bladderwrack/Kelp) (250mg): An ingredient sourced from a species of seaweed. It is often included in weight loss formulations because it is rich in iodine. The thyroid gland produces hormones that are essential for a healthy metabolism and it needs a sufficient supply of iodine to maintain its function. However, supplements that provide extra iodine will only offer benefit to people whose diet fails to provide a sufficient quantity.
- Chitosan powder (500mg): Chitosan can be derived from some types of fungus, but it is more commonly sourced from the shells of certain species of deep-sea crustaceans including shrimps and crabs. The human digestive system cannot process chitosan so it offers no nutritional value at all. However, it has the ability to absorb dietary fats and bond with them (fat binding) and, once bound, the fats also become indigestible and cannot impart any calories on their journey through the digestive system.
- Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6) (30.4mg): vitamin B6 acts as a cofactor in glucose, amino acid, and lipid metabolism. For this reason it is a common inclusion in sports and weight loss supplements. But many foods including, beef, pork, turkey, bananas, and potatoes are good vitamin B6 providers; so most people who eat a balanced diet should not be lacking in this important vitamin.
- Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1) (11.2mg): The body uses vitamin B1 to help it metabolize sugars and amino acids but, like vitamin B6, it is easily obtained by anyone who eats a balanced diet.
- Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) (10mg): Vitamin B2 performs many functions within the body, is necessary for a number of enzyme reactions, and helps activate other vitamins. Natural sources include leafy vegetables, milk, cheese, liver, and mushrooms.
- Chromic Chloride (128mcg) + Chromium Picolinate (67mcg): Two forms of chromium. Laboratory tests conducted in the 1950s indicated supplementation with chromium may encourage fat burning. More recent studies do not support this theory, but chromium continues to be a very popular ingredient in supplements that are designed to provide weight loss.

Side Effects, Health Issues & Supplementary Information
Fat Away can interfere with medications that are used to treat thyroid problems. It can also decrease the need for certain hypoglycaemic medications and may not be an ideal choice for diabetics. The chitosan content may reduce the effectiveness of some medications and will make Fat Away an unsuitable option for anyone who is allergic to shellfish. Bearing all this in mind, it would be wise for all potential users to seek medical advice prior to commencing supplementation.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
Fat Away is available from a number of online stores including Sporty’s Health, and Nutrition Warehouse. Prices range from around $29 to $40 for a 60 tablet pack and Nutrition Warehouse usually proves to the one of the cheapest options.
The product packaging sports an emblem that promises a 100% satisfaction guarantee, but none of the sites that market the product provide any information about the guarantee or its duration.
Although Fat Away tablets claim to be triple action – it is our opinion that they do not offer a true triple action.
PhenQ for example can only burn fat, suppress appetite and raise the metabolic rate (this is by product of fat burning) but also block the formation of new fat.
