Thin Tab 3G

Updated May 8, 2019.
Published Mar 31, 2014.

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.


  • Very good price
  • Contains promising ingredients


  • High levels of stimulant ingredients not suitable for everyone
  • Lack of full ingredient profile
  • No money-back guarantee
Thin Tab 3G
Thin Tab 3G is described on its packaging as a powerful fat burner that can help you lose up to 20lbs. Containing the “three Gs”, garcinia, green coffee and green tea, this supplement has been attracting a positive customer attention but some people have experienced side effects.

After getting a fair number of comments from our consumer report, we find out more about this diet pill.

Thin Tab 3G Overview

What you need to know about Thin Tab 3G

Thin Tab 3G Key Features

Garcinia cambogia

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.

Thin Tab 3G Key Points

  • No information about the manufacturer
  • Only appears to be stocked by Wal-Mart and Amazon
  • Diet pill is designed to be used in combination with a 10-week plan

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:

  • Helps to decrease your body’s ability to convert sugars and carbs into fat
  • Helps to control your appetite and reduces cravings to make healthy eating easier
  • Increases your metabolism to help you burn more fat

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.

How to Take Thin Tab 3G

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.

Thin Tab 3G Concerns:

  • Advertising slightly misleading – 20lbs weight loss IF you follow the 10 week plan
  • May only cause temporary weight loss
  • No information about the manufacturers or the company behind this supplement

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.

What does Thin Tab 3G claim to do?

Switch Your Body’s Fat Burning into Overdrive with the 3G™ Weight Loss Accelerator

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:

  • Green Coffee Bean extract …Helps to decrease your body’s ability to convert sugars and carbs into fat
  • Garcinia Cambogia extract ….Helps to control your appetite and reduce cravings.
  • Green Tea leaf extract….Increases your metabolism, helping you to burn more fat

THIN TAB® 3G™ contains 3 more valuable ingredients for helping you drop the pounds and shed the inches you’ve been longing to lose

Does Thin Tab 3G work?

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 Ingredients

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.

Amount quantities are in serving size of two tablets.

  • Chromium (as Chromium Polynicotinate) 10mcg: According to the product information, chromium supports healthy fat and carbohydrate metabolism and promotes healthy blood sugar levels.
    However, there is not enough evidence to prove that chromium supplements improve the body’s ability to improve glucose tolerance. Chromium is a trace mineral that is present in a normal healthy diet and scientists believe there is no need to take supplements. Here is very small quantities.

Thin Tab 3G Blend 820mg per serving.

  • Garcinia Cambogia extract (fruit) (50% hydroxycitric acid): This South Asian fruit has been investigated for its role in weight loss and appears to have some positive short-term effects. The rind of the fruit contains hydroxycitric acid, which is believed to have an appetite suppressing effect.
    There is some evidence that it can help people feel full and it may have potential for fat reduction and the treatment of diabetes but research is currently ongoing. Source:
  • Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) extract (45% EGCG): Clinical investigation has found that green tea has proven health benefits and the antioxidants (ECGC and polyphenols) found to have anti obesity and fat burning properties because of the effects upon the metabolism.
    According to some clinical investigation, Green tea combined with resistance training may lead to a decrease in body fat and waist circumference. Source:
  • Green Coffee (45% chlorogenic acid): Much touted ingredient that can cause some weight loss. Research results indicate that weight loss is small but real. Unroasted coffee bean extract is rich in chlorogenic acid, which seems to inhibit glucose into the blood stream. Green coffee bean extract has been featured on the Dr Oz show and although testing has yielded some positive results, they were minimal. Contains caffeine. Scientists report that more rigorous trials are needed to assess the usefulness of Green Coffee Extract as a weight loss tool. Source:
  • Guarana (Paullina cupana) Extract: Seed Extract from a native Brazilian shrub and a source of caffeine, which can help reduce the appetite. Gurana has higher levels of caffeine than coffee beans and is often used to promote alertness.
    Gurana may help promote weight loss when taken like here in combination with green tea. However, it is not suitable for everyone and can cause interactions with prescription drugs as well as raise heart rate and blood pressure. You should avoid caffeine while taking. Source: WebMD Guarana
  • Panax ginseng extract (root): Plant root extract often used as an aphrodisiac and it may have an effect upon diabetes. However, it can be unpredictable and can interact with medication and alcohol. When used for diabetes, the dose is 200mg so is unlikely to do much here. It was believed to be effective in the prevention of breast cancer but this has since been disproved.

Thin Tab 3G Side Effects

Some customers have experienced side effects mainly around the stimulant effects. According to our Watchdog feedback these have included:

  • Jitteriness
  • Tremors
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Increased need to urinate
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

More seriously:

  • Chest pain

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:

  • Elevated heart rate
  • Palpitations
  • High blood pressure
  • Ringing in the ears – a sign of high blood pressure
Caution: Avoid if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not take if you suffer from high blood pressure or have any heart related medical condition. Avoid Thin Tab 3G if you are sensitive to caffeine or other stimulants. See your doctor first if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medication. Some of these ingredients may cause drug interactions.
Avoid other caffeine products like coffee or sodas and be careful with alcohol.

Thin Tab 3G Customer Feedback

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.

Thin Tab 3G Money-Back Guarantee

No money-back guarantee on offer.

Where To Buy Thin Tab 3G

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 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.

Watchdog Verdict

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.

Thin Tab 3G Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is Thin Tab 3G clinically proven?

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.

Garcinia Cambogia article
Green Tea article

Can Thin Tab 3G help me lose 20 pounds?

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.

How do I take Thin Tab 3G?

Although we didn’t find the usage information on the official site, we managed to find out how to take Thin Tab 3G. You simply take 2 tablet before each heavy meal, up to two times daily. Because of the caffeine content you are recommended not to take them after 6pm.

Are there any Thin Tab 3G side effects?

The obvious possible side effect is due to the caffeine content of this supplement. The exact amount is unknown due to none of the main ingredient amounts being listed and wrapped in a proprietary blend. As per the dosage advice above, we would suggest not taking too late in the afternoon and certainly not before going to bed, to avoid insomnia and restless sleep.

Who is the company behind Thin Tab 3G?

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.

Can I buy Thin Tab 3G from Ebay or Amazon?

There are no eBay listings at this time that are selling Thin Tab 3G, but you can find it on being sold by “Thin Tab” themselves. The current price is $12.76 + $4.99 shipping.

Where can I buy Thin Tab 3G?

You are unable to buy this supplement directly from the official website but can find Thin Tab 3G in store at your local Walgreens or Walmart and on their websites too. The price is a very affordable $8.97 for 60 tablets. Shipping costs may be added depending on where you live and the store.

  2. This is one of the few diet supplements that works for me. It gives me a little bit of energy and takes all hunger pains away. I love it.

  3. I have to many health issue and cant take any diet pills. but I saw tine tab 3g at walmart and I tried. it really worked for me. I lost 6 lbs in one week.

    1. Please post if you find – I am looking for more also – not even on Amazon now – where do we buy this great product – finally find one that works- my dr approved and now can’t find place to purchase- help!!!!

  4. Its a very good product for beginning weight loss or if your nearing your goal, but like all foreign chemical introduce to your body it will lose its effect over time. I use 3G to start my training program cause it gives you good energy out the gate good focus, drive, and fat burning effects; but it decrees greatly after the first week so make sure you stick to your training plan or the one in the bottle.

  5. ALERT! ALERT! I started taking this supplement along with a water pill w/caffiene. I am a gastric bypass patient. I’ve been prescribed a water pill before in the past post-op and had no complications on its own. I had surgery in 2008. I’ve had fabulous health and labwork since. About two weeks after I started taking this combination, I started feeling very tired, having palpatations, dizziness, and some other symptoms. Two weeks later, I wound up in the hospital with severe anemia and in need of a transfusion. I didn’t connect it to this combination with 3G and the water pill at first. I stopped taking them and started taking an iron supplement. After I started feeling better, I started the 3G and water pill again, symptoms returned. CHECK WITH YOUR DR if you are a gastric bypass patient before taking 3G.

  6. This stuff works. I have lost 21 pounds in just over 3 months and the few trivial side effects have simply not bothered me. Now I have to figure out how to keep it off!

  7. HI i bought Thin Tab 3G and starthing using it on Aug /9 /2013 i was 254 and within two days on Aug/11/2014 was down to 251 with out changing my diet and no work out at all i was amazed and shock all thou i do have the down side of gething headics for side affects but other than that i can handell that just fine not bad for mi first try i take two in the morning and two in the afternoon before meals with that said i will like to see how well it continues to work once i finish with the 60 pills since there no money back for this product and don’t wanna have my money that was just spent on it go down the drain so might as well take it all the way and see where it takes me once done i will keep you all posted …

  8. Ive been using for two and a half months now nor following their diet pkan but the Paleo diet and have lost 40 lbs. Im exercising regularly to help it along further and loving my results!

  9. A lot of caffeine in this product. I had palpitations and problems to got to sleep. So, I am taking it only for breakfast and lunch.

  10. After completely changing my diet 1/01/2014 I went from 351lbs to 299lbs by the end of May, 3 weeks into June I was back up to 306 even though i was still eating very healthily. I started taking 3G 6/18/2014 and am back down 6 pounds in just 6 days! I take 2 30 minutes before breakfast, one with lunch and one while I cook dinner. Hopefully the weight will continue falling away!

  11. I’m gonna start my Thin Tab 3G today looking forward to lossing the weight I need to loss this is 6/16/14 and I will post again in 4 weeks to let you know now I do with my Thin Tab 3G.

  12. I have been taking these a week now and love them!! It has curbed my appetite and given me tons of energy….only downside I have found is a little nauseous after taking them and the “crashing” affect when they wear off….but so awesome!

  13. I started on Monday, 4/21 at 197.6 pounds and took two tabs before the noon and evening meal, skipping breakfast except for one thin slice of dry toast. By May 26th, I was at 181.2 and could finally fit into my clothes. To keep the weight loss, I’ve taken two tabs daily and it seems to be working, although my appetite has returned.

  14. Purchase my bottle today, will start tomorrow morning , will keep you updated. My weight is 203, I want it down to at least 190

  15. I have been taking for one day but fill nothing. I am hungry, hasn’t curbed my hunger, and don’t know may be because its my first day I should just wait and finish the bottle.

  16. I’m trying these pills, so far the only side effects that I have encounter is a little heartburn, and loose stools; otherwise its ok.

    I have tried Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia Dietary Supplement, I did loose 3 lbs in the first week (probably because I change my diet, lol). I just did not like the fact you have to take 4 pills 3 times a day one hour before meals.
    I read your reviews and I have to say its well done. Thank you!

    1. Bought thin tab 3G Aug 12 took two 30 minutes before lunch and then did the same for supper it kept me from not being hungry and i dropped 3 pounds. Great product.
