Product Information


  • Clinically proven to reduce calorie intake
  • Boosts energy and metabolism

No more excuses - GNC Total Lean™ Appetrex Control™ is clinically shown to help control your appetite and reduce calorie intake when you need it most - at the start of your diet. This multi-action formula combines energizing herbs such as yerba mate extract and black tea with EGCG, a major thermogenic component of green tea that helps support metabolism. In addition, Appetrex Control supplies chromium that supports your metabolism by assisting insulin and important B vitamins to help your body use glucose more efficiently and metabolize fats, protein and carbohydrates. B vitamins also play an essential role in energy production; low energy levels are a key concern among dieters.

In a clinical study of 30 healthy adults (who took Appetrex Control one week followed by a placebo one week apart, or vice versa) food intake was reduced by nearly 10% when the subjects took Appetrex Control versus the placebo prior to their first meal at the start of their diet.

To help you manage your weight, we've included an easy-to-follow meal and exercise plan. Created by expert nutritionists and dietitians, this two-week meal plan provides you with 1,500 calories each day and features healthy foods.

Ive tried it all, THIS WORKS!!!
Seriously people, I have tried it all. I am too embarrassed to talk about all of the products I have tried because there are so many. My body should not even respond to this pill but it does. This pill cuts my appetite like no other I know today.I cant even believe it. I bought two bottles and I want more because Im afraid its gonna be discontinued or something. Please people dont complain about the taste because GNC might change the taste and that may mess up the effectiveness it has because it is effective. The taste shouldnt matter, all that should matter is that it works. Please GNC dont ever get rid of this product! I love it!!

To My surprise it works.
I've been using this product for about 2 weeks, and so far I've went from a 42 inch waistline to a 37 inch waistline (5 Inch difference). My weight hasn't really changed much, but my clothes I just bought for a trip don't fit anymore, which to be honest amazed me on what a whole 5 inches can do. So the product really has been helping me with my stubborn baby weight/Muffin Top that's been hanging on for a year now. It does seem to work better if you take this product with a light snack, like crackers or fruit. I personally think it keeps you from feeling the nausea and dizziness. As far as energy goes, I've noticed a mild level of energy, that doesn't cause any shaking feeling or anything scary (like other products). Just enough to make you feel like you want to do some spring cleaning. Lol, I hope this helps.

I have been taking this product for 2 weeks. I take 2 pills 30-60 minutes before lunch, I usually take them around 12pm. I do not take the pills on the weekends.

The first week, I didn't notice any changes in my appetite and I thought the pills were a waist of money. But I planned to try it out for a month to get my money's worth, one way or the other.

Week 2 was a complete transformation in the effectiveness of this product!!

I usually wake up hungry, but all week I didn't wake up hungry. I usually feel hungry ALL day, but week 2 I didn't feel hungry at all-EVER! I thought about food all day because I'm accustom to thinking about food, but the hungry feeling in my stomach was non existent! Also, when I did eat, I ate less then 50% of what I would normally eat. I felt fuller much quicker and the satisfied feeling lasted forever.

I keep track of my food and calorie intake. I realized that I wasn't eating more then 1,000 calories!!! Before the pils I could eat 1000 calories during breakfast and lunch. (combined), but now I'm eating less then that all day?? Woah!

Oh yea... I lost 5 pounds in week 2 alone!

I work out 3-4 days a week for about 2 hrs and never lost 5 pounds in one week.

pretty awesome.
I've used this product at two very different times in my life, and it always works just as well. I suggest taking it after you eat, otherwise (as some have mentioned) you can become nauseous and dizzy. It contains as much caffeine as a strong cup of coffee, so it'll give you a little zing but not the shakes, which is great. If you have an issue with the bitter taste, just pop them in a cup of yogurt and take them that way!

I lost 15lbs in a month or so the first time I used the product-- everyone was saying I looked great and I didn't even realize why until I weighed myself on the scale--whoa! At the time I hadn't been particularly active either, and I was eating in college dining get the picture.

These pills don't just suppress appetite-- you feel quite full and the mere thought of having a meal makes you shiver. It seems best for people who are compulsive snackers, or are looking to start changing their lifestyle and need a boost. Couple this with light, healthy meals during the day, some light exercise and/or your occupation, and lots of water-- you won't be disappointed.

This really works!
I take it early, around 8:30 AM and it lasts all day. No jitters, there were previous comments on how bad it tasted, but I never have that problem. Can't believe that something so cheap actually works. You have to make yourself eat. what a great product. Thanks GNC.

Loveeeeee IT!!!
I usually dont do reviews but I do have to say these Pills do work! I eat my breakfast and two hours later I drink the pills. It does what it says. I think about food and im like blarghhh. NO THANK YOU. I eat very small portions try it One spoon of rice one piece of chicken and you will be full towards the end. Im always munching on something. I took the pills two days straight then stopped one day. BAD IDEA I was eating left and right I totally felt the difference! Try it im telling you. I am completely satisfied with these pills THANK YOU GNC !

Really works!
I have tried quite a few different appetite suppresant pills and this one works the best! I take one at 12pm and I dont really have an appetite the rest of the day. I am only able to eat about 1/2 of the lunch I used to eat and for dinner I have to make myself eat a small snack. No jitters or restlessness.

Ive been using this product for almost 10 days now and Ive dropped 7 lbs. Ive been stuck at a platue for a while now working out 6 days a week at the gym burning close to 7,000 calories a week and this product is exactly what i needed to jumpstart my weightloss again. I would take 1 pill before breakfast 1 pill before lunch that seemed to keep me leveled with my hunger and it works great! I never experienced any side effects, no jitters, no shakes, nothing. Thats what i was worried about but I have to say i did not experience not one side effect. The pill itself is pretty large and not the easiest to swallow just make sure you drink plenty of water! It really curbed my appetite and I noticed a difference. I actually had less cravings too! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!!

They really do work!
These are the most effective pills I've ever used. I have taken a lot of diet pills and appetite control pills in the past and these are the only ones I've found to work. I take them about 2 hours before lunch time and I really have to force myself to eat. They even last around dinner time too so I only have to eat a small meal. I've lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I really recommend them!
