Lean Response is a company that sells just this one product, plus gives away a diet patch as part of the deal. We checked out their provided address in Maine but instead of a conventional office building or lab, found it was the UPS Store in Portland USA.
Lean Response is a dodgy looking supplement that provides a UPS depot as the company’s sole address, so the people behind it are obviously trying to stay hidden for some reason. The supplement contains a blend of weight loss ingredients in unknown quantities and is not going to work; you cannot shrink your stomach in the way as claimed. Lean Response comes with a free weight loss patch called the Mymi Wonder patch. It may sound like a good deal to get two products but as neither of these is likely to do anything at all except possibly cause side effects, Lean Response does not seem worth the bother.
Many of the ingredients contained in this supplement are known for side effects. These include jitteriness, anxiety, insomnia increased heart rate and blood pressure, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite, mood swings, increased risk of heart attack or stroke, stomach upset, digestive system upset, risk of internal bleeding, skin disturbances, diarrhoea, stomach pain, weakness, fatigue, and liver damage.
Lean Response is expensive. It is only obtainable via the Lean Response website and although all purchases come with the free gift of a weight loss patch called Mymi Wonder Patch, it still looks overpriced compared with other weight loss supplements on the market.

Lean Response is a weight loss supplement that promises to shrink your stomach fibers! This is not a very accurate description of the body in any way at all, but we guess they just mean shrink abdominal fat. And as this is a very common issue with most of us, it is an appealing claim.
So what is contained in this supplement? The proprietary blend adds up to 800mg per capsule, shared out between a whopping 14 ingredients! All the ingredients are popular in various types of weight loss supplement and include some stimulants such as Guarana (a source of caffeine) and Citrus Aurantium, plus fibre extract Caralluma Fimbriata. There is also Hoodia – a cactus extract that has been discredited by experts, Garcinia Cambogia and algae spirulina and chlorella. In fact, there are not many weight loss ingredients that are actually missing from this supplement! Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
Not all the contents of Lean Response are safe, and the fact that the individual quantities are unknown makes this an added concern.
Lean Response is on sale solely from the official Lean Response one-page website. There is also a Facebook page although this is not very popular and at the time of writing has only 249 followers.
When you buy Lean Response, you also get a free gift which is a South Korean weight loss patch called the Mymi Wonder Patch. You are supposed to use this in combination with Lean Response by sticking it to your fatty areas. We covered Mymi Wonder Patch in a previous Watchdog review, and found that it was totally ineffective and likely to cause pain and skin irritation when used.
Lean Response does not come with much background information regarding manufacture or the identity of the company behind it. There is an address provided along with a customer phone number. When we checked out the address we found it was actually the UPS depot in Portland Maine, which was less than impressive.
We did, however, manage to contact Lean Response customer services via the live chat facility. We found out that Lean Response was manufactured in Revere Massachusetts, although no further details were provided.
Lean Response is, according to the advertising,
The only way to eat less without surgery, frustration, dieting & risk!
A NATURAL WEIGHT LOSS SOLUTION; Lean Response is a capsule that you take each day that instantly works on shrinking your stomach fibers. After your stomach has shrunk, you will no longer feel hungry; the first few bites will be enough. You will eat half, even a quarter as much as you used to… there’s no doubt you’ll drop the pounds!
The effect is immediately visible: Your waist shrinks, your stomach flattens and you are immediately thinner
The key benefits are as follows:
Sadly no. This supplement will not “shrink” your stomach, and is unlikely to help you lose excess belly fat. It will not improve your digestion or increase your appetite to a healthy level. No weight loss supplement works “instantly” as claimed, and it seems unlikely that this one will work at all.
With 14 ingredients shared out between 800mg in the proprietary blend, it is extremely unlikely that any of these will be in sufficient quantities to do very much at all. That said we don’t know whether one or two of the ingredients may overpower the others which could be in trace amounts. This is a concern because some of the contents are known for causing side effects. Hoodia, white willow extract which can cause internal bleeding, and Citrus Aurantium – dangerous for many because it increases heart rate and blood pressure, are just a few of the concerns about this supplement.
In addition, this whole premise of shrinking your stomach is wrong. According to the product information, once your stomach has shrunk you will no longer feel hungry and be tempted to eat too much. In truth, the size of the stomach does not change once we become adults. It does not expand, needing more food to make you feel full. The stomach is an organ so like the other organs the size is fixed once we reach adulthood.
Instead, the need to eat is managed by the appetite hormones leptin and ghrelin, and if you are seriously overweight or accustomed to more food, these hormones fail to signal that you are full.
That said, abdominal fat is a dangerous risk to health. Belly fat sits around the internal organs and can cause numerous problems including the risk of liver disease, heart problems, and more. It is also the place where most of us store the most fat. Losing weight here is good for health but if you rely on help from this supplement, you will be disappointed.
The weight loss patch is equally ineffective. It is impossible for these ingredients to enter the bloodstream via your skin, and the most likely result is skin irritation and pain.
Its ingredients are scientifically proven to aid weight loss and you are covered by a full 60-day money-back guarantee from a trusted company, making Phentatrim a very popular choice in the diet world.
Phentatrim is the best thing to hit the supplement market in a long time, with thousands of customers already seeing the benefits. That’s why it's our editor's top pick.

Each capsule is equal to one serving. The information here is a general overview of the ingredients. Effects largely depend upon serving size which is unknown to the customer.
Lean Response also contains 100 mcg of chromium. Chromium is used for improving blood sugar control in people with pre-diabetes, type 1, and type 2.
Many of the ingredients in Lean Response are known for causing side effects. It is impossible to know whether these will depend upon the serving size, or even what the serving size is, but the information here is based on known risks of these ingredients.
This supplement may be high in caffeine so may cause:
Other stimulants such as Citrus Aurantium is stronger and less tolerated, and may combine with caffeine to create a more powerful effect. Side effects include:

Hoodia is known to cause:

We guess you return it to UPS in Portland.
You can only buy Lean Response via the product website.
We are not impressed with Lean Response. This expensive supplement will have an unpredictable effect, because it is impossible to know the strengths or the weaknesses of the 800mg proprietary blend. And with 14 listed ingredients, any permutation is possible.
We are also unimpressed by the claims on the website. You cannot shrink your stomach as claimed and although you can, of course, reduce stomach fat we feel that a company selling a supplement should have a basic knowledge of human biology, rather than inventing things to suit an advert.
We were initially concerned that Lean Response may have been manufactured in China. Not so, according to the live chat customer services, which was actually quite helpful. We were told that Lean Response was manufactured in the USA and we feel that this good point should have been made clear to customers.
That said it does not really matter where it has been made. It does not look very good or safe for customers to use, so we do not recommend Lean Response to the Watchdog, even if it does come with the free gift of the Mymi Wonder Patch.
In our opinion, the only wonder here is that people actually buy this supplement!
