Diva Fat Burner—the name says it all. It's a fat burner made for women. Gender-specific supplements are not particularly common and in many cases they do not contain any ingredients that cannot be found in numerous other supplements that are also marketed towards men. That is also the case here. The woman-only angle appears to be nothing more than a marketing ploy.
Diva Fat Burner is manufactured by Hit Supplements. The company is based in the US and market their products via their company website and a number of independent online stores. Their supplements appear to be designed to appeal to people who have active, sporty lifestyles. Hit also sponsors several successful athletes, all of whom appear to have sufficient faith in Hit Supplements to act as company ambassadors.

Key Ingredients & Blend Potential
The Diva Fat Burner formulation contains more than 20 ingredients, and most of them are housed in proprietary blends, so effective evaluation is impossible.
Three capsules provide:
- Folic Acid (400mcg)
- Vitamin B12 (6mcg)
- Biotin (150mcg)
- Iron (9mg)
- Zinc (1.5mg)
- Chromium (200mcg)
The body utilizes folic acid for cellular repair, and zinc is a natural testosterone booster that can promote fat burning and muscle growth. Chromium also stands out as a good ingredient because it has a longstanding reputation as a fat burner, but the other ingredients are unlikely to offer much of value to anyone who eats a reasonably balanced diet.
Fat Blocker Blend (476mg)
- Coleus forskholii extract
- Garcinia cambogia
- Beetroot Powder
- Brown seaweed
Bladderwrack and brown seaweed are likely the same thing. Bladderwrack seaweed is a good source of iodine, so it can be useful for promoting thyroid health. The thyroid secretes hormones that are necessary for a healthy metabolism, so bladderwrack is somewhat of a diet pill regular. Coleus forskholii is often used as a fat burner and is believed to protect against muscle loss, but garcinia cambogia is the only fat blocking ingredient in this fat blocking blend. It has a good reputation for getting results, but will not be able to do so if its powers are diminished by an insufficient inclusion rate.
Metabolism Blend (820mg)
- Raspberry ketones
- Green coffee bean
- Guarana extract
- Green tea
Raspberry ketones can stimulate the release of the fat burning hormone adiponectin, but it is not a metabolism booster. All of the other ingredients can boost the metabolism but, with the exception of theobromine, they are all sources of caffeine. The blend could be good for providing extra energy, but if the amount provided is too high, side effects could become an issue.
Energy Blend (800mg)
- Bee pollen
- Hawthorne berry
- Choline bitartrate
- Aloe vera leaf powder
- lotus leaf powder extract
Bee pollen is sometimes credited with appetite suppressing abilities, but it is unlikely to boost energy levels. Hawthorn can help the circulation and choline bitartrate is a performance enhancer, but neither ingredient is usually considered to be an energy enhancer and aloe vera and lotus leaf will prove to be likewise lacking such abilities.

Diva Fat Burner has received a wealth of customer reviews. Some of them are highly praising, but many customers say Diva Fat Burner does not work and a number of people claim to have experienced side effects.
A few customer reviews read:
[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]”Diva Fat Burner is a very good fat burning pill. I know it works because the scales tell me so every time I step onto them. So far I've lost around 14 pounds. I haven’t experienced any side effects, my energy levels are through the roof and I never feel the urge to snack or eat between meals.“[/box]
[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]”Getting some extra energy would have been nice. Losing weight would have been nicer, but these pills don't do anything the manufacturers say they will. My best advice is stay away.”[/box]
[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]”Absolutely the best fat burner in the world as far as I am concerned and it gives me plenty of extra energy to burn off in the gym. Diva Fat Burner has made a big difference to my health and fitness routine and the extra poundage around my waist is fast becoming a thing of the past“[/box]
[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]”I followed the instruction to the letter, but have not lost any weight at all even though I get plenty of exercise. The only difference I've noticed is I get a lot more headaches these days and often feel jittery.“[/box]
Side Effects & Other Issues
The blend contains a lot of ingredients in unknown quantities, and a number of customers have reported experiencing nasty side effects, so all potential customers are advised to play it safe and seek the advice of their GP before commencing supplementation.
Diva Fat Burner is not a suitable option for vegetarians because the capsule casing contains gelatine.
Where to Buy Diva Fat Burner
Diva Fat Burner can be purchased from the Hit Supplements website and each (135 capsule) bottle costs $44.99 (£29.50). Postage and packaging is extra. The capsules are also available from many independent online stores and via the Amazon Market place. At the time of this review the Amazon price was £42.32, so customers based in the UK may find the cheapest option is to purchase from Lucky Vitamin. At the time of this review the Lucky Vitamin price was £26.99. However, potential customers need to be aware Diva Fat Burner is sold without a money back guarantee.
