Leptin Shred Review 1


Belly fat is the most stubborn fat there is. That spare tire, those love handles. Getting rid of these is the holy grail of weight loss supplements and programs. No one has found the silver bullet yet, as far as I know, so we keep searching. Today, our search leads us to a product called Leptin Shred from Six Pack Shortcuts.



Six Pack Shortcuts use to be Mike Chang’s company. He was first known for the exercise programs he creates and sells, but he also promoted supplement under the Six Pack Shortcuts umbrella, and Leptin Shred has become one of the most popular.


A while back, Mike Chang parted ways with Six Pack Shortcuts. From what I can tell, he completely walked away, though I couldn’t find any indication as to why. So Leptin Shred and the other supplements stayed with Six Pack Shortcuts, but it looks like the formula may be slightly different. We’ll go through all the ingredients as they are today, and come up with a yay or nay recommendation to help you with your decision.


leptin how it works imageHow Does Leptin Shred Work?


Most fat burning supplements use a lot of stimulants to provide energy and a metabolism boost, along with the appetite suppression provided by those stimulants. But Leptin Shred works with an entirely different mechanism, based on leptin.


Leptin is a hormone with a strong connection to body fat. When it’s released from fat cells, it inhibits hunger and regulates energy production. When you go on a diet, ie you eat less, you’ve probably heard of being in “starvation mode” where your body conserves energy, lowers its metabolism, and holds on to stored fat. It’s leptin that causes this.


Leptin Shred works on leptin in three ways:


  • It increases production leptin production.
  • And it decreases leptin resistance, because the more leptin in your body, and the more effective it can be, the more fat you’ll burn and weight you’ll lose.
  • Leptin also gives you the feeling of being full, so you’re eating less, leading to more weight loss.


Leptin Shred promises to help balance and maintain higher leptin levels through increasing production and through decreasing resistance.


Leptin Shred Ingredients


The formula has changed somewhat since the days of Mike Chang, so if you search around, you’ll see lists that don’t match this one. But this is the current list, and it is indeed focused on increasing leptin and decreasing leptin resistance.


  • African Mango Extract (Irvingia Gabonensis) (1)  which reduces c-reactive proteins, which can cause leptin resistance. So with fewer c-eactive proteins, your leptin receptors are firing on all cylinders and doing their job more effectively. Studies have shown a correlation between increased c-reactive proteins and obesity.
  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) which is an Omega 6 fatty acid that aids in the breakdown of fat for the purpose of turning it into energy. It may also be beneficial for increasing leptin and decreasing body weight. CLA may also help reduce food intake, ie suppress your appetite.
  • L-Carnitine which is an amino acid which may reduce fat mass, increase aerobic capacity so you can work out longer, and my also reduces leptin resistence.
  • Olive Leaf Extract  (2) which stimulates leptin production and helps reduce appetite.
  • White Willow Bark Extract which improves the leptin producing abilities of the other ingredients.

Leptin Shred Before and After Reviews


Leptin Shred is sold on Amazon.com, which in this case means there’s a ton of customer feedback available, and doesn’t look good for Leptin Shred.


The clear majority of reviews are negative:


Leptin Shred 1-Star Reviews


Here are a couple examples:


Blair says: “Product arrived quickly, very pricey, and no difference. I do not recommend this, it did not work. It’s that simple.”

Another customer says: “Don’t be fooled. This doesn’t work. I actually gained 11 pounds. I found all the videos and everything. It just doesn’t work. Never buy anything from Six Pack Shortcut.”


That last review reminds me of the disclaimer I saw on the Leptin Shred product webpage:

So they’re basically straight up saying their product doesn’t work.

Our Leptin Shred Recommendation


With the unexplained split from Mike Chang and the highly negative reviews, there’s really no reason at all to recommend Leptin Shred. It seems like a great idea, but the execution just doesn’t pull it off.
