Thin Tab 3G is named for the inclusion of “three Gs”: green tea, green coffee, and garcinia. There is also a fourth G in the form of guarana, but for some reason this doesn’t make the cut as a headliner. The product looks alright, but as it is supposed to be taken alongside the diet plan provided, it seems like the diet and exercise are really the reason for any weight-loss that may occur. It is sold in Wal-Mart and on Amazon, and doesn’t appear to be available outside of the US.
After getting a fair number of comments from our consumer report, we find out more about this diet pill.
Thin Tab 3G contains some good ingredients that may help promote some weight loss. The gaurana and green tea combination may be effective for increasing the metabolism and there is some evidence that garcinia has an appetite suppressing effect.
However, there is a lot of caffeine in this diet pill, which will not suit everyone.
One of the best features of Thin Tab 3G is the advice about diet and exercise but you don’t have to buy the supplement to make these changes yourself.
Side effects experienced by customers include chest pain, dizziness, tremors, and headaches.
For a full list, please see the Side Effects section below.
One bottle of Thin Tab 3G costs $8.97, which is 60 capsules. This amounts to a 15-day supply if you take the recommended 4 tablets per day.
If you are looking to kick-start your weight loss, Thin Tab 3G looks as if it may be a good option. This supplement contains natural ingredients and comes with an advertised 10-week Healthy Eating plan to offer you some extra support.
Thin Tab 3G is a Fat Burner diet pill that has some powerful advertising, a glossy product website and some good advice about how to achieve long-lasting weight loss. It is available from Wal-Mart and probably, for this reason, has recently become well known to US buyers.
The supplement contains three major ingredients; Garcinia Cambogia, Green Coffee Bean Extract and Green Tea and comes with some scientific evidence that shows that it may help increase the speed of the metabolism and help you burn fat. These ingredients have featured on the Dr Oz show so are familiar to US customers.
Despite extensive research, we were unable to find out much about the company behind Thin Tab 3G and whether it is made overseas or in the USA.
To add to the confusion there are other supplements on the market that look very similar. Most notably Thin Tab – another supplement also on sale in Wal-Mart and made in Florida. Thin Tab and Thin Tab 3G look very similar but do not appear to be made by the same company.
According to the product information, the benefits of Thin Tab 3G come in a three punch approach that:
All this sounds good and ties in with the ingredients contained in the pill but key to weight loss success is the Thin Tab 3G 10 week Healthy Eating Plan, You are encouraged to follow this and it is mentioned on the packaging as helping you lose 20lbs of weight.
Take 2 tablets before a meal, up to two times daily.
We do not advise you take too close to bedtime due to the stimulant effect.
This is slightly misleading for a couple of reasons.
The first is that one bottle of Thin Tab 3G does not contain sufficient tablets to support you through 10 weeks. We feel that this fact should have been made clearer to customers as you may need as many as 5 bottles!
The second reason is that the 10 week healthy eating plan requires a complete change to diet and lifestyle. It is not easy and we are not even sure it is actually a plan because it just looks like some sensible advice around the “move more, eat less” principle. We can’t argue with the advice and it will certainly help you lose weight, but as we all know it is easy to say and less easy to do.
The first step of the diet plan involves throwing away unhealthy foodstuffs and drinks that Thin Tab 3G calls the “No No list” and adopting a healthy eating plan you can live with.
Foodstuffs on the No No list include Sodas and Juices (regular or diet), anything containing high fructose corn syrup (most processed foods). In addition, anything with trans fats, artificial sweeteners, red meat and fried food and anything else that is fattening or unhealthy.
Once you have done this you are encouraged to replace these with foodstuffs from the Yes list. These include fresh fruit and vegetables, Whole grains and cereals, proteins including shellfish, tofu, cheese, poultry, lentils nuts and seeds. You are also advised to switch to healthy fats and oils and to replace sodas with healthy beverages such as water, tea and coffee.
You are also advised to take regular exercise to enhance your dieting efforts and boost your fitness.
According to the website;
THIN TAB 3G may help you fight cravings, feel more full on less food, and give you an added boost of energy.
The aim is that this will support you over the 10 weeks while you lose weight.

According to the advertising,
Thin Tab 3G targets weight loss from start to finish – beginning with food cravings and overeating all the way to burning those stubborn deposits of fat.
According to the website;
For over 20 years THIN TAB® has been providing safe and effective weight loss formula
We would have liked to find out more about this but there are no further details.
The principle ingredients of Thin Tab 3G are summarised into three major benefits:
THIN TAB® 3G™ contains 3 more valuable ingredients for helping you drop the pounds and shed the inches you’ve been longing to lose
Yes, we think it does work a bit. The ingredients look good and come with some evidence that they may help promote weight loss. However, taking stimulants will not suit everyone and it does not always work long term because your body can soon become accustomed to the effects.
If you follow the Thin Tab 3G advice to throw out the contents of your kitchen and replace with a whole new healthy eating plan and exercise programme you will probably lose the advertised 20lbs over 10 weeks.

Thin Tab 3G is a fat burner diet pill that may help suppress your appetite too. It contains the Thin Tab 3G propriety blend plus a small amount of chromium.

Some customers have experienced side effects mainly around the stimulant effects. According to our Watchdog feedback these have included:
The Thin Tab 3G information does not provide any warnings of side effects but these side effects are not uncommon with taking high doses of caffeine. Potential side effects can also include:
Not many. Although Thin Tab 3G is on sale from Amazon there are only a couple of customer reviews and Wal-Mart do not provide a space for customer feedback. Both reviews are positive.
In 2 days, I lost 4 pounds!! It’s incredible how well this works! I am very curious to see the end result by the time I finish the 60 tabs!!
It gives me energy, and I don’t take the recommended dose. I took only 2 today at morning and in the afternoon. I feel like its still working even now, may have taken it too late. Take before 3pm
This seems like good advice especially as many customers who have reported their experiences on the Watchdog website have struggled with stimulant side effects. Nobody has mentioned the 10-week Healthy Eating Plan which is odd.
No money-back guarantee on offer.
You can find Thin Tab 3G on the shelves at some branches of Wal-Mart.
One bottle containing 60 tablets costs $8.97 and if you take the recommended 4 tablets per day it will last you 15 days.
You can also find Thin Tab 3G via Amazon.com. 60 tablets cost $11.95 plus $5.95 shipping to US addresses.
At the time of writing Thin Tab 3G is not available to customers outside the USA. You cannot buy Thin Tab 3G direct from the product website.
We admit to being a little puzzled about Thin Tab 3G. It is very hard to find out any information about the company, like where they are based and where this supplement is made, and although it is on the shelves at Wal-Mart very few online retailers appear to stock it.
There is very little practical information about the supplement. It is unclear whether the 10 week diet plan comes with any more recipes than the provided three samples and the website does not even include advice about how and when to take the supplement.
This is a shame because there is a lot going for it. The price is good – even if it only lasts 15 days it is still one of the cheaper supplements on the market, and the ingredients may help to support some moderate weight loss.
The downside is that the stimulant effects do not agree with everyone and in many cases, this does not lead to long-term weight loss. Reducing the daily dose to two tablets a day instead of four may get round the side effects problem.
We like the advice about weight loss and to be honest, if you followed this and tried out a similar plan for a few weeks you probably would lose weight without the need for taking supplements.
At the end of the day, although Thin Tab 3G does have some good points we do not think it is quite good enough for our approved list.
The straight answer is no. As with most diet pills this supplement claims to contain “clinically proven” ingredients. We have to agree that there are studies to show the three main ingredients (Green Coffee, Garcinia Cambogia and Green Tea) can help promote weight loss when taken in the correct amounts for sufficient time and combined with healthy eating and exercise.
As the ingredients in Thin Tab 3G are within a proprietary blend its impossible to determine if enough of each ingredient exists in this supplement to support the claims.
If you are interested to know more about the effectiveness of these ingredients and the studies supporting their claims, take a look at our ingredient series:

Garcinia Cambogia article

On its own the answer is no. If you follow the 10-week “healthy eating” diet plan exactly and exercise daily then you may lose 20 pounds over 10 weeks. This works out to an average weight loss of 2 pounds per week, which is a very realistic weight loss goals and inline with the safety recommendations for the US and UK.
The caveat is that you will need to stick to the healthy eating diet plan to see results. Thin Tab 3G is marketed as a “support” to both the eating and exercise plan. The fact is you will almost certainly lose some weight by adopting this approach anyway.
Good question. There is no information that we can find on the company behind this supplement.
The official website simply states “Thin Tab” with no company address or telephone number. If you want to contact them you need to fill out a web form with your details. We are not impressed by this lack of information.
