Published Feb 9, 2017.

DietSpotlight is a supplement review website with an ulterior motive – to get you to sign up for a free trial of their product, Burn TS. Previously known as Leptigen, DietSpolight Burn, Lean, and Slim, this constantly rebranded product contains just three ingredients; Meratrim and ChromeMate, both branded supplements, and green tea extract. Despite the fact that side effects are unlikely, DietSpotlight does not offer a money-back guarantee on their product.


  • Clear ingredients profile

  • Massively overpriced
  • Operate a free trial scam that tricks people into signing up for auto shipping
  • Rebranded product – has previously been named Leptigen, DietSpotlight Burn/Lean/Slim, and now, Burn TS

DietSpotlight is a diet pill review website that sells Leptigen, the site’s own weight loss supplement. Recently Leptigen seems to have been replaced by a differently named supplement– DietSpotlight Burn; they also trialed out the names DietSpotlight Burn or DietSpotlight Lean as well. These three different names are for the same supplement, and are in fact are all just Leptigen under a choice of different names. We take an in-depth look to find out more.
UPDATE: This product is currently named Burn TS – for how long, who knows, but we’ll let you know when, not if, the name changes again.

DietSpotlight is a pretty well-known diet pill review site, but it has an ulterior purpose and that is to sign people up for the free trials offered by its chosen products. Many Watchdog readers have tried this, only to be caught in a nightmare of a hard to cancel the auto-ship program. This is where new supplies are sent to your address each month and the payment extracted directly from your bank account or credit card.

DietSpotlight Burn TS Overview

What you need to know about DietSpotlight Burn TS

DietSpotlight is a supplement review website with an ulterior motive, and that is to get you to sign up for a free trial scam they offer on their own products.

Their weight loss supplement used to be called Leptigen, but these days the name has been changed to DietSpotlight Burn TS. Leptigen was a not-too-bad supplement, but massively overpriced and with some seriously dodgy auto-ship strings attached.

What are the side effects of DietSpotlight Burn TS?

It looks pretty safe but it still may cause side effects. If you are very sensitive to caffeine or chromate you may notice side effects such as jitteriness, headaches, insomnia, nausea or dizziness.

How much does DietSpotlight Burn TS cost?

DietSpotlight Burn TS is expensive. In our opinion, it is massively overpriced. Many people sign up to a free trial offer in the belief it will only cost $3.25. However, if they fail to cancel they will be hit with paying $59.95 plus $5.95 shipping and handling for each month’s supply.

Even if you do not fall for the free trial scam, $59.95 is overpriced for a bottle of 60 capsules or one month’s supply of diet pills.

Additionally, there is an option at the checkout to add a further product to your order called DietSpotlight Advanced Cleanse & Detox. This also has a monthly cost so you could soon find yourself billed for hundreds of dollars within the next month!

DietSpotlight Burn TS Key Features

In the supplements world, there is no such thing as a free trial because sooner or later, you are certainly going to pay. Deep down we all know this already but this does not prevent us from falling for the same old scams, especially when they are offered openly from a trustworthy looking source.

DietSpotlight Burn TS Key Points

  • DietSpotlight Burn TS is identical to an earlier supplement called Leptigen
  • 1 x bottle of 60 capsules (1 month’s supply) costs a whopping $59.95
  • DietSpotlight operates a free trial scam that signs you up for auto-shipping if not cancelled

DietSpotlight is a diet pill review site that, at first glance, looks fairly similar to the Watchdog site. It posts reviews of many different supplements just like we do, but that is where the similarity ends. Their basic aim is to get you to sign up for a supposed free trial offer. Previously this was for their weight loss supplement called Leptigen. These days DietSpotlight has changed the product name to Burn TS. This is most likely due to all of the bad reviews that Leptigen earnt through its auto-shipping scam.

How to Take DietSpotlight Burn TS

Take 2 capsules every day.

Worryingly, this supplement still has the offer of a free 15-day sample. The same deal that the company has run with Leptigen over the past few years that has caught many customers out.

DietSpotlight Burn TS Concerns:

  • DietSpotlight creates the impression that this is a trusted company, but the free trial offer is very tricksy
  • Some people will be tricked into spending money they cannot really afford
  • DietSpotlight Burn TS, like Leptigen, is massively overpriced and does not offer good value for money

It contains three ingredients. Meratrim and ChromeMate, both branded supplements, plus green tea extract. According to the product information, it will work in three ways, helping you to:

  • Lose more weight
  • Increase fat burn
  • Boost metabolism

Also according to the product information, DietSpotlight Burn TS is manufactured in the USA and is non-GMO and gluten-free.

For further information, here is our previous review on the product when it was known as Leptigen.

What does DietSpotlight Burn TS claim to do?

According to the website, DietSpotlight Burn TS is creating a stir in the weight loss world.

Our success with Dietspotlight Burn comes from the high level of trust we maintain with the 400,000+ customers we’ve served over 7 years. We spent years researching thousands of products. With this knowledge, we created a “best of the best” product that not only works, but contains ingredients backed by real science.

We question this idea about the high level of trust achieved by their website. Many Watchdog readers have trusted this site and have been caught up in auto-billing without realising.

We decided to take a closer look at this important issue.

As with their old supplement Leptigen, there is a link to a free sample on the product page. Click on this and you are taken to a fresh page which reads,

Congratulation, you are pre-qualified to receive one of our limited, 15-day samples of Dietspotlight Burn.

Once there, you fill in your address for delivery before being taken to another page where you complete your payment details. This states that your free trial costs just $3.95 and includes a free PDF download about “cheat foods.” It comes with the free gift of a pill pot too.

Here it is very important that you read the terms and conditions.

It reads,

Order a sample of Dietspotlight Burn for just the cost of shipping and handling.

(So far, so good.)

It continues,

You have no obligation to buy anything in the future as long as you cancel within 15 days.

(Hang on, this is beginning to sound a bit dodgy).

By the time we reach the next point, everything begins to look clear.

Otherwise you will be enrolled in our Dietspotlight Burn Member Program, where we automatically send you a one-month supply of Dietspotlight Burn in 15 days and every 30 days thereafter for just $59.95 plus $5.95 shipping and handling.

As you can see, the free trial has suddenly changed into a subscription for regular orders. Instead of costing you $3.95, you will actually be billed a lot more per month unless you cancel within 15 days.

To change shipping frequency, cancel or extend your trial, call 844-964-3258.

Does DietSpotlight Burn TS work?

DietSpotlight Burn TS may help you lose weight.

There has been clinical testing into Meratrim and the results look promising. We all love green tea and there is strong evidence it can help burn fat. ChromeMate is a reputable supplement that may help support healthy blood sugar levels.

We think that this product may help support weight loss. However, it seems overpriced and the dodgy sales practice is a matter of concern.

DietSpotlight Burn TS Ingredients

The ingredients are clearly provided which we like. Serving size is equal to 1 capsule.

  • Green Tea Extract (standardized to 70% EGCG) (200mg): EGCG or epigallocatechin gallate is a phenolic antioxidant present in green tea. This useful molecule can increase the speed of the metabolism and increase body temperature, helping the body burn fat. There have been numerous clinical tests into its efficacy for weight loss and studies suggest that when combined with caffeine, as here, it can increase fat burning. Source:
  • Meratrim (Sphaeranthus Indicus flower and Garcinia mangostana fruit rind) (400mg): This branded formula has undergone clinical testing. Research claims that these two herbs have various positive effects on the metabolism of fat cells. This combination of ingredients may increase weight loss, as supported by the clinical trials.
  • ChromeMate (chromium polynicotinate) (100mcg): ChromeMate is a branded niacin-bound chromium called chromium polynicotinate that supplies a highly bioavailable form of chromium, an essential trace mineral that supports healthy blood sugar levels already within normal range. Chromium has been linked with a tiny amount of weight loss when used continually for a long period of time.
  • Natural Caffeine USP (75mg): Caffeine is present in green tea and can help increase the speed of the metabolism as well as give you a lift. When used in combination with green tea it may enhance the fat burning effect but effects can wear off as you become accustomed to use. Source:

DietSpotlight Burn TS Side Effects

The DietSpotlight Burn TS supplement looks safe but it still may cause side effects. If you are very sensitive to caffeine or chromate you may notice;

  • Jitteriness
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

We have not found any reports of side effects to Meratrim.

Caution: Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor first if you have an underlying health condition or are taking prescription medication.

DietSpotlight Burn TS Customer Feedback

We have been unable to find any independent customer reviews for this supplement. It is only on sale via the official website and although there are some so-called customer testimonials posted we do not believe they are genuine.

There were however numerous customer reviews for the identical product Leptigen posted on the Watchdog site. Most of these were complaints about the free trial offer which caught many people out in the USA, UK, and as far afield as Australia.

Thanks to our readers for their help in keeping other customers informed.

As a reader called Barbara reported,

This is a scam! I asked only to try the sample. I did not give them my information to charge for for anything and they have sent me the pills twice and taken the money from my checking account…

Sacha reported the same,

I was also scammed for this product by signing up for free “15” days. The customer service sucks and the representative I talked to made me sound like I was an idiot…

Grandmarmie said,

Their “free trial” is a scam! they charged me $95.90 and a bottle I didn’t order and when I called they said that if I tried it and called back on the 15th, today I would get all $95.90 credited back to my account, but when I called back they said I was supposed to of called the 13th and than during the conversation they changed it to the 14th.. so they could not return my money now… after much discussion they finally agreed to return $57.54 which is $38.36 less than they were supposed to return… I am very angry at being taken by these scam artists!!! Don’t fall for them!!

There are many comments along the same lines; just take a look at our Leptigen review to see.

DietSpotlight Burn TS Money-Back Guarantee

DietSpotlight does not offer a money-back guarantee.

Where To Buy DietSpotlight Burn TS

DietSpotlight supplements are only available via their official website.

Watchdog Verdict

DietSpotlight Burn TS seems to be replacing an earlier DietSpotlight supplement called Leptigen.

As a supplement, it looks ok as it contains safe looking ingredients that may help you generate weight loss. The ingredients have also undergone clinical testing.

That said, we have real concerns about this supplement and the company behind it. This supplement is extremely overpriced at $59.95 for a month’s supply of 60 capsules and the tricksy free trial scam is catching a lot of customers out.

Instead of receiving a free sample for $3.95, as they believe, customers are mistakenly signing up for auto-shipping, where they receive regular supplies of this supplement delivered to their homes each month and billed directly from their bank accounts or credit cards.

We can never stress enough the importance of reading through terms and conditions. The information is clearly displayed on the product sales pages but the company is counting on you not to read it. Don’t be fooled by this tricksy policy.

We do not recommend DietSpotlight Burn TS. Whether they are going under the name of Leptigen, or the new DietSpotlight Burn, the products are best avoided.

  1. SCAM! “Free trial”, I didn’t even get to try the pills before they charged me. And when I called they made it seem like I was an idiot. Guys please stay away from them. Trust me on this.

  2. Had the most unusual experience on the phone with their customer service. I bought their 14 day trial pack and only paid for shipping. The catch is that a full bottle will be sent to you and your cc charged $66 if you do not cancel the auto-ship within 14 days. You also did not have an option to opt out of the auto-ship. So I said, ok why not right? If it works then I’m ok with the auto ship. If nothing is happening after I follow it religiously…then I will cancel. On my 12th day, I decided to cancel. It was enough time for me to make a conclusion that nothing different was happening. On the phone I spoke to a man with a heavy accent. He insisted to send me another trial pack to give it a longer try. He went on about how nothing happens overnight and that there is no magic pill…blah blah blah. HUH?? Isn’t that what you are sort of claiming to sell? Anyway, I sensed he was starting to get annoyed with me after I declined the extended trial period numerous times. I under stood his persistence so I let him give me his speech about the product…then I said…”I absolutely agree with you! If that is the case, then you would not need me to be on a forced auto-ship subscription and just send me the trial packs without committing to the auto-ship subscription. When your product speaks for itself, I will go back and buy multiple bottles because your trial pack proved to me it really works…right?” —–silence on the phone —– “Hello? Anyone there?” —- dial tone —-. I guess he didn’t like what I had to say. In any case, I did get a confirmation email that my auto-ship subscription has been cancelled. I wonder if he will still send me the extended trial packs that he insisted I have…I won’t hold my breath on that.

  3. They sent me 2 weeks. I called to cancel. I even said on the phone several times that they were not authorized to charge my card. They did anyway. Now they are saying that I was unclear. Want to file a BBB complaint but can not find their physical address! Told them I would call a lawyer – and guess what? They called back and said that they would refund my money.

  4. THIS IS A HUGE SCAM DO NOT DEAL WITH WITH THIS COMPANY!!!! They will charge your account for a “subscription” you never agreed to and will not refund you for anything they send to you. If you try to get a “free sample” pack you will automatically be charged monthly until you call to cancel, again with no refund. What your sent has no contact information or number on the order receipt so you’re left to piece it together on your own and find the contact info online to stop being barged an outrageous amount. Awful, DO NOT get anything from this company.

    1. Tell your bank to stop any payments to company. Also report them to your fraud department at your bank. If you can get in touch with them tell them you are reporting them to to the fraud department of your bank unless you get a full repayment. I fell for a scam days ago, but I was so angry I threatened them with fraud charges. I got all my money back. Be strong and angry. Tell your bank what is happening. They will help. GOOD LUCK

  5. DietSpotlight charged my bank account without my consent. I found out the hard way…when I need that money they took out. I had already called and had cancelled subscription about a week and a half before.

    Now it’s a big mess with my bank until they actually refund my money. Do not fall for this. Hoping to prevent this from happening info to someone else.

  6. I got scammed by these lying s.o.b.s. Kept on trying to take money I ain’t got, I had to get my bank involved. What a bunch of crooks. Evil evil evil. The so called nice lady on the phone, what a bitch, said I had to pay its in my contract. What contract. Place in hell waiting for these crooks. I got Phetatrim now it’s no caffeine and they don’t auto ship.

    1. I called to cancel and nice lady on the phone told me if I keep my subscription then I’ll lose even more weight each month by having less money to spend on junk food. She said it’s one of the advantages if I keep on buying. I told her to go ram her headset up her ass and I’d be sending to my lawyer a recording of the call. Said I was absusive and ended the call on me. I’ve been to my bank and put a block on them. Hope they go bust and all their employees lose their houses and pensions and cars. 100% crooks.

  7. The pills do NOT WORK!!
    I too was scammed, as 5 days after i received the ‘sample’, the first full bottles of their pills arrived! I called to say that i did not order them and they said “yes you did. Just read the T&C’s of what you agreed to.” I told the man i wanted to return the bottle, but they said “your second order of a bottle is already on the way” and said No Refund and hung up! I discovered i had been debited $89.00! Called Santander bank to ask them to issue a ‘callback of my funds’ but they said they could not, as i had agreed to buy the pills. They did get me a cancellation of further renewals however.

  8. I ordered sample and didnt realize chitosan i am allergic, i called immediately and emailed them, they cancelled any auto ships happily, meanwhile i gave the sample to my friend and she LOVES them, not hungry at all and feeling great. She takes 3 a day rather then 2, she lost 2 lbs in a few days, I would like to buy her an other bottle but it is very expensive

  9. I’m another one caught up in their scam. I didn’t even finish the samples before realizing it was a fraud and had no idea I had signed up for a new supply every 30 days. I called and they agreed to refund the last bottle sent but the first they refused. Even worse, Bank of America refused to help me with any dispute. I’ll be changing banks too.

    My fault, I didn’t read the very craftily hidden fine print. I hope this helps someone else to avoid both DietSpotlight and Bank of America.

    1. I live in SCOTLAND and I am ashamed to say I have been caught out a few times,but my bank is [email protected], because as soon as I realise what’s happening, I can report them for fraud immediately. Just last week was charged £155 for a deal of £25 for 1 plus 2 free. Threatened them with the fraud department of my bank, refunded every penny. I was lucky. Just go to your online account and stop these payments

  10. I got scammed..ughhh.. I tried to call and cancel but it was to late!! 🙁 they only gave me 50% of my refund..such BS.. Now i have q bottle of sh*t pills i wish i would of never ordered in the first place. I should know better to order from these asshats and that a magic pill won’t make you lose weight. 🙁 ugh $30 out of my pocketmm theifs this company is.

  11. I ordered the trial but definitely don’t want to have the recurring plan. I called and the associate did the ritual trying to stop me from cancelling. He recommended the caffeine free version which was helpful. He also offered me an extension for an extra 14 days before being charged… I did accept that at the time, but then called back 2 days later to cancel. The associate did ask about the call 2 days earlier, and I told him I just didn’t feel comfortable having it set up for automatic. He said no problem, said that I would be receiving a confirmation email. I said Thank you very much, but by then he had already hung up. I did get my confirmation that it was cancelled. So the associates will cancel it, but they will barely give you the time of day when doing so. Once they realize they cannot save your subscription, it’s on to the next. We will see if these fat burners actually work when the sample arrives.

  12. Dietspotlight is a joke! It doesn’t work and the company is a scam. They rope you in with a supposed 14 day trial,just stick you with a monthly subscripton you didn’t sign up for. I called my bank to claim it as fraud. Then I called the company to cancel something I didn’t sign up for. The rep offered me his employee discount of $25, sure as if this changes anything. Don’t buy anything from this compant, it’s not reputable.

  13. This is a joke! I ordered the free trial yet didn’t notice ANYTHING different. I called to cancel it and after speaking and explaining to the rep. that I wasn’t interested in purchasing another $89 worth, I wasn’t expecting to be charged again for it yet I was 8 days later! I had to call yesterday to explain this issue with another rep and he said that they had no history of me speaking with the other rep. I was beyond upset so the rep said he would refund me 1/2 of the $89. I then had to tell him to send me 2 emails after he gave me the confirmation number to have proof that I spoke with him. I did get the 2 emails but I have yet to see those funds added to my account. Long story short, this “company” is truly not worth being interested in. The pills don’t show any difference in daily vitamins and reducing an urge to eat randomly.

  14. I talked to them today. They DO offer a money back guarantee. When I initially ordered online I accidentally entered my address wrong so I had to call to change it. During that phone call I was informed that I would be on an autoship program. He told me the date I had to call back by in order to cancel the autoship. I received the free trial only a few days ago and have not yet tried it, and my trial period was up today, so I called and he sent me another free sample, so I have a bit longer to see if I like it. He also gave me the day that I have to call back by to cancel the autoship. It’s totally a sleazy way of going about things. Not impressed with that. But both times I called the customer service was great. I was also offered a deal for $120 for 120 days. So it’s about $30 a bottle.

    I’ll see how it goes but man I’m sure glad I entered my address wrong and had to call to change it :/

    MY advice is anytime something seems like TOO good of a deal, just call the company before or immediately after ordering. Preferably before. That way you can get a feel for the company and their motives.

  15. Scam. Totally. I received my “free trial” after one month, by that time I had already been charged a full other month ($AUD127)…. I contacted them and they said they had been able to “work magic” and refunded me half….. anyways the pills are crap. Just made me feel sick.

  16. These guys are super sketchy – saw a charge this morning for the product- called them and said I would like to return the bottle once it gets here. They say that they can’t in good conscience sell the unopened bottle to another customer but they could sign me up for another 90 days which offers a satisfaction money back guarantee. I told them to that they are unethical and to cancel the subscription. I hate people like this. I’ll try to write a review for every begrudgingly swallowed pill from that bottle.

  17. Beware of these sleazy scammers. They will ship the next order and charge you before you have the promised 15 days to try their free sample. They clock their 15 days from your order date. You get the product a week later. If you try use it for 15 days and decide to cancel, it is too late and they have already shipped. I called them up and their slick salesmen run you around in circles with the fine print and say you agreed to the terms. Buy similar products from more reputable companies. Like Alpha Male — no auto ship.
