The FitMiss range of supplements is aimed at women and is an offshoot of the MusclePharm Corporation, a US supplement company that specializes in bodybuilding products. FitMiss is a well-known brand with supplements available from a choice of outlets.
FitMiss Burn is advertised as a 6-stage weight loss supplement, but all the so-called components of the stages are rolled into just one capsule, so it is just an ordinary weight loss supplement rather than an impressive program as suggested. That said, it has worked for some people and not all the feedback is bad, although side effects may be an issue for some users.
You can buy FitMiss Burn in two sizes of packaging – the 45 servings (90 capsules) or the 60 servings (120 capsules), and you are directed to take 1 – 2 servings a day. The product information warns against side effects, and you are advised to drink 1 gallon of water a day while using and to avoid caffeine and alcohol.
Added concerns are that it contains Uva Ursi which can cause menstrual bleeding, so you need to avoid this supplement if there is any chance you may be pregnant or if you are trying to conceive.
There may be side effects and the product information warns against some of these including chest pains, vomiting, and difficulty in breathing or swallowing.
Some customers have reported side effects including stomach cramps, headaches, diarrhoea, nausea, jitteriness, anxiety, increased hunger, stomach pains, kidney infection, constipation, hot flashes, heart palpitations, and skin eruptions.
FitMiss Burn is not expensive. Buy from the official FitMiss (MusclePharm) website and it costs $24.99 for a bottle of 90 capsules (45 servings). Shipping is calculated at the point of sale.
You can also find FitMiss Burn on sale at Amazon USA for as little as $20, depending upon the seller. We have seen the 60 capsule bottle on sale for as little as $11.00.
UK customers can buy directly from eBay UK, where it is much more expensive at around £41.99 for 90 capsules depending on the retailer.
There are some good points about FitMiss Burn. This supplement is inexpensive and if you are looking for a fat burner that is high in caffeine you may find that it is effective. However, with over 30 listed ingredients and many of the components in under strength quantities, we don’t understand why FitMiss went through this rigmarole when they could have stripped the supplement down to just a few extracts and it would have been equally effective. As it is, many of the components are just taking up space without doing anything and with each added ingredient so the risk of side effects increases.
We have major concerns about any supplement that adds the information that you should avoid caffeine and alcohol without printing this in large letters so that customers can see. We imagine that most consumers will miss this important notice and run the risk of increasing caffeine-related side effects at least.
Overall, we do not recommend FitMiss Burn to the Watchdog readers. There are just too many unknown factors regarding the ingredients levels, and this combined with the many customer reviews who have mentioned side effects leads us to believe that this supplement is just not safe enough or effective enough to recommend.

FitMiss Burn is a fat burner diet pill that, according to the advertising, will help you through the six stages of weight loss. It is advertised as a six-stage weight management program which sounds a bit complicated, but in fact, you just take the same two capsules serving throughout and let the ingredients take care of the rest.
Stage 1 and 2 are focused on increasing energy and metabolism, Stage 3 on appetite and weight management, Stage 4 is all about improving mood, and Stage 5 and 6 designed to help you shed water weight and improve digestion. Although this sounds as if each effect will kick in one after another, the fact that all the ingredients are combined in the same capsule suggests that all these effects will be experienced simultaneously.
Because FitMiss Burn is aimed at so many different purposes, there are lots of ingredients contained in this supplement. Although this sounds good, it does mean that the risk of side effects may be high and because all these are combined in a proprietary blend, strengths of the individual components are unknown.
You are advised to drink a gallon of water a day which will help keep you hydrated and may help minimise potential side effects.
As well as the mainly herbal ingredients, FitMiss Burn also contains vitamins and minerals. Check out the ingredients tab and the side effects tab to find out more.
FitMiss is a female only brand that comes from MusclePharm Corporation, a supplements company focused on bodybuilding. According to research, the brand was established in 2008 and was specifically designed to meet the needs of women. Over a decade on, this name is looking a bit questionable and a teeny bit patronising to women, although the products themselves seem quite popular. We have covered several FitMiss supplements in previous reviews including FitMiss Delight, FitMiss Tyte, and FitMiss Z Slim PM.
According to the FitMiss website, FitMiss Burn will,
“FOCUS. BURN. AMAZE!
To burn the fat and lose weight, you have to curb cravings and increase energy levels. With FitMiss Burn™ and its revolutionary 6-stage approach, you can kick-start your metabolism while saying “NO” to pesky cravings*. It’s time to get fit and get sexy!”
The so-called six stages are as follows:
“ENERGY AND FAT METABOLIZER: Stages One and Two focus on helping your body increase natural energy production and metabolism for quicker fat burning. Superior ingredients like green tea extract, guarana seed extract, and more help your body burn fat.
APPETITE BALANCING AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT: Glucomannan, white kidney bean, raspberry ketones, alpha Lipoic acid, and chromium work together to help your body balance your appetite and weight management control in Stage Three.
ANTI-STRESS MOOD BALANCER: During Stage Four, the anti-stress mood balancer created from DL-phenylalanine, 5-HTP, ginkgo Biloba leaf extract, turmeric root, garlic, and Echinacea purpurea extract helps improve your mood and keep you balanced.
WATER SHEDDING AND DIGESTIVE ENZYME AID: A series of complex ingredients including DigeSEB, almond oil powder, kelp, and apple pectin work as digestive aids, while potassium Aspartate, Uva Ursi, and dandelion extract assist in water shedding.”
The problem with FitMiss Burn is that it contains too many ingredients, and most of them are in completely inadequate quantities or superfluous.
For example, White Kidney Bean extract and Glucomannan can both be effective for weight loss and appetite control, but you do not need to take them together. In addition, the serving size for both is totally inadequate because the whole formula adds up only to 1.494mg shared out amongst 30 ingredients, and this is not enough for either one to be effective.
There are some good ingredients in this supplement. However, with the principle ingredient caffeine, the caffeine effect is the one that will be most noticeable. This may cause a stimulant effect that may help perk you up so you feel more energised. We would like to say that the green tea/caffeine combo can help increase metabolism because together these two ingredients can be effective. The problem is that we don’t know the precise quantities so it is likely that the caffeine will overpower the rest of the ingredients.
Worryingly, this supplement does contain components that will increase urination and although this is supposed to help you lose “water weight”, dehydration could be an issue. Customers are advised to drink a whopping gallon of water while using this supplement to avoid adverse effects.
Overall, we don’t think FitMiss Burn is particularly effective and side effects could be an issue.
Serving size is equal to two capsules. The information here is based on serving size and not capsule size. The supplement contains a blend of B vitamins and minerals which may help support general health.
The principle part of the supplement is based on mainly herbal extracts and is as follows.
Revolutionary Women’s 6 Stage Weight Loss Blend (1,494mg): According to the product information, the principle ingredient is caffeine.
Stage 1 & 2 Energy and Fat Metabolizer
Stage 3: Appetite Balancing Weight Management Control
Stage 4: Anti-Stress Mood Balancer
Stage 5: Water Shedding Diuretic Complex: All these ingredients are powerful diuretics that will cause you to urinate more frequently.
Stage 6: Digestive Enzyme Aid
This part of the formula contains three branded supplements designed to improve digestion.

There are 778 reviews on Amazon at the time of writing, so we looked there.
39% of reviews are positive with comments such as,
Great stuff. Doesn’t make me crazy like most energy products. Gives me just enough that I have the energy to deal with 3 kids and the treadmill but by bedtime I’m still able to sleep.
However, 24% of comments are negative with side effects or no effects, common issues with users.
This product is a waste of your money. It has not done a thing for me.
Unfortunately these made me really sick. I was nauseous everyday, more tired, and my skin broke out after I had worked so hard to finally get it cleared. I wish I had the same luck as many other reviewers but everyone’s body is different.
Some customers are mixed,
If you are looking for a non stimulant fat burner then this one is for you. It did not suppress my appetite
No side effects and did give me some more workout energy but no extra weight loss to report.
