Our top picks for 2023
An in depth look at some of the best Fat Burning supplements for women on the market in 2023.

Hourglass Fit is the best women’s fat burner on the market, with an incredible ingredients list designed specifically for women. It is a stimulant-free supplement that avoids the use of caffeine in favour of appetite suppressing ingredients and non-stim fat burning ingredients such as Capsimax.
Where it really stands out from the crowd is in its use of ingredients designed to boost your mood, improve focus, and protect your immune system. Anyone who has ever been on a diet will know how badly it can affect your mood and focus. While a loss of immune system protection is common during prolonged dieting.
What’s in it?
There are nine ingredients in Hourglass Fit: Vitamin B6, B12, B2, Chromium, Zinc, Konjac Root, Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper, and 5-HTP. Each ingredient is fully dosed and comes from natural, high-quality sources. The Cayenne pepper comes from Capsimax an industry leader, and the black pepper comes from Bioperine another well known supplement ingredient.
Konjac root (also known as glucomannan) is the most effective ingredient in Hourglass Fit. It works by affecting the hormones that govern satiety, and delays stomach emptying . Increasing your feeling of fullness after a meal. This is incredibly useful when dieting as you are usually consuming far fewer calories than usual. This would normally lead to feeling very hungry between meals, and possibly snacking.
The konjac root can prevent these feelings, making it easier to stay in your calorie deficit, and improving the entire experience. Konjac root can also help to regulate a healthy gut microbiome, improving digestion and helping to regulate your appetite .
The cayenne pepper (Capsimax) is there to increase thermogenesis, which leads to a raised metabolism and increased calorie burning . 5-HTP has been added to help prevent hunger between meals by boosting serotonin . It can also improve mood and cognition. There is added zinc to boost your immune system, as well as vitamins that can help to improve feminine health.
How to take it
Each bottle of Hourglass Fit contains 120 capsules, with each serving requiring 4 capsules, so 30 days supply. It is best to split your serving into four parts, taking one capsule first thing in the morning, one before lunch, one mid-afternoon, and one before your evening meal. This increases the length of time that Hourglass Fit is working for.
- Excellent value for money
- Highly effective fat burning ingredients
- Superb appetite suppressant makes dieting easy
- Mood enhancing ingredients keep you motivated
- Protects your immune system while in a calorie deficit
- Fully transparent label and no side effects
- Would burn more calories if it utilised stimulants
If you are looking for a stim-free fat burner that improves your mood, protects your immune system, burns fat, and reduces your appetite, then Hourglass Fit really is the supplement for you. The fact that it is also an absolute bargain when it comes to value for money is an added bonus.
While it won’t burn as many calories as a fat burner that uses caffeine, it has done a really good job of using strategic ingredients such as Capsimax to provide a metabolic boost. The complete lack of side effects justifies the lack of caffeine.
If you are a woman who wants to make the process of dieting and exercise a little easier and more effective, then Hourglass Fit is the ideal supplement for you.
As we said at the beginning of this review, some fat burners will focus more on reducing your appetite and avoid using stimulants such as caffeine. While others take a more aggressive approach. Instant Knockout Cut uses the latter approach. It contains 300 mg of caffeine, 500 mg of green tea extract, and also contains 100 mg of capsicum.
But to portray Instant Knockout Cut as a sledgehammer would be doing it a disservice, this is an intelligently designed supplement, that also uses glucomannan (konjac root) to help suppress appetite, and L-theanine to boost your mood and counteract the side effects of the caffeine.
What’s in it?
The active ingredient in Instant Knockout Cut would be caffeine, with 300 mg per serving. This is a great dosage and can lead to increased fat oxidation  and raise your metabolic rate . Caffeine is incredibly effective at burning fat (when combined with diet and exercise) but many fat burners avoid using it due to the side effects.
These side effects can be mitigated by adding l-theanine to the ingredients list. L-theanine is an amino acid that has a synergistic relationship with caffeine, improving its effectiveness while helping to prevent side effects such as jitteriness, headaches, nausea, and anxiety. It can also increase the effect that caffeine has on cognition, helping you to focus even more .
You’ve got cayenne pepper to help increase calorie burning even further, thanks to its thermogenic effects. Then there is green tea extract which can also help with fat oxidation, increased blood flow, and a reduction in bad (LDL) cholesterol .
Glucomannan finishes the product off, allowing you to feel fuller for longer by slowing gastric emptying and improving appetite regulation.
How to take it
Instant Knockout Cut contains 120 capsules, with 4 capsules making up one serving, so 30 days of servings. Take the capsules throughout the day, with the first one taken straight after you wake up, one before lunch, one mid-afternoon, and one before your evening meal.
- Caffeine increases fat oxidation
- Increases metabolic rate
- Reduces appetite
- Improves mood and focus
- Lowers cholesterol levels
- All-natural ingredients
- Transparent label
- Not suitable for people who avoid stimulants
- Only available from Instant Knockout website
If you want the most powerful fat burner out there and don’t mind some of the effects of caffeine (increased heart rate, raised body temperature etc) then Instant Knockout Cut is a great choice. It’s a different product to Hourglass Fit, which is a little more strategic, but ultimately both will offer amazing results. Instant Knockout Cut works really well with Instant Knockout’s other product the meal replacement.

Hunter Burn is an absolutely superb low-stim fat burner, with fully dosed, well-chosen ingredients that can help regulate appetite, burn calories, and focus your mind. These top quality ingredients come at a premium price, and Hunter Burn may not suit all budgets, but if it does fit your budget you are purchasing a seriously good fat burner.
What’s in it?
There are only six ingredients contained within Hunter Burn, but each one is powerful and well-chosen. You have vitamin D, konjac root extract (glucomannan), white kidney bean, l-theanine, matcha green tea extract, and cayenne pepper.
Studies have shown that green tea extract is highly effective at reducing body fat , particularly in people who don’t often consume caffeine. But green tea’s benefits are not restricted to fat loss, it can also help to improve cognition . It can also boost mood and help with recovery from exercise. Green tea extract has also been shown to help reduce carbohydrate absorption .
Speaking of carb blocking, Hunter Burn also contains white kidney bean extract, which has been repeatedly shown to reduce carbohydrate absorption. This does not mean that you can eat all the carbs and not gain weight, but it can help you to reduce your calorie intake slightly while still enjoying carbohydrate-laden foods during your diet.
We’ve already discussed the benefits of l-theanine and its mood enhancing properties, we also know that glucomannan is excellent at slowing gastric emptying and improving appetite regulation to allow you to operate in a calorie deficit. Cayenne pepper is the final ingredient and plays an excellent role in boosting your metabolic rate by raising your body temperature.
How to take it
Hunter Burn contains 6 capsules per serving, and there are 30 servings in total. It is advisable to take the capsules spread out throughout the day. With your first one taken as you wake up, one with breakfast, one mid-morning, one before lunch, one mid-afternoon, and one before your evening meal.
- Highly dosed all-natural ingredients
- Increased cognition
- Boosted mood
- Reduced carbohydrate absorption
- Appetite regulation
- Only available from Hunter website
- Premium price for quality ingredients
Hunter Burn is a magnificent low-stim fat burner that takes quality ingredients to a new level. The high price tag is fully justified by the quality of the product, but still, if your budget is tight then this may not be the fat burner for you. We love the attention that Hunter Burn places on mood and cognition, and you can see the influence of the other Hunter products in that regard.
OxyShred differs from the other products on this list, offering a fat burning powder rather than a capsule. If you are not a fan of taking capsules, then this could well be the fat burning supplement for you. Because it is a powder and can be mixed with water to drink, OxyShred has a number of flavours, offering you variety and a refreshing drink.
As a fat burner, it does not quite match the three previous supplements, and it feels a little like OxyShred is caught in two minds. It has 150 mg of caffeine, so it is stimulatory, however the dosage is quite low, so it is not delivering the full benefits in the same way that Instant Knockout Cut does.
The number of ingredients contained within OxyShred is staggering, with at least 24. Sadly, not all of them are correctly dosed and several are ineffective. It’s a “Throw them at the wall and see what sticks” approach to fat burning which can sometimes work well, but often fails.
What’s in it?
It would take a small book to list all of the ingredients and discuss each, so we’ll just say that it contains 150 mg of caffeine for stimulation, and inulin fibre to reduce your appetite and increase satiety. It also contains a lot of useless ingredients such as raspberry ketones, green coffee extract, bitter orange, and olive leaf extract.
How to take it
Mix one scoop with 295 ml of water, mix and take 15 minutes before your workout. If you are not working out that day, then take it first thing in the morning.
- Tasty flavour, easy to consume
- Great price per serving
- Appetite suppressing ingredients
- Caffeine can help to increase fat burning
- Decent pre-workout supplement
- Lots of poorly dosed ingredients
- Several useless ingredients
OxyShred is a good fat burning supplement, and it offers something different to the others on this list. It would work best as a pre-workout where it can help to increase fat oxidation, increase concentration, and increase the number of calories burned during your session.
OxyShred lets itself down with the use of useless ingredients such as raspberry ketones which have been disproved by science. It would have been better to replace these with more effective ingredients while keeping costs the same.
The final fat burning supplement on this list is Her Night Time Burn which has a unique approach to fat loss. Instead of looking to increase your metabolic rate, it instead looks to improve your sleep by making it easier to relax. A good night’s sleep can help you to move more the next day, and it can help with appetite regulation, so this supplement can make a difference in that regard.
However, the lack of effective ingredients that actually burn calories does keep this supplement from truly competing with the other fat burners on this list. It’s an incredibly subtle supplement, and this may suit some people perfectly.
What’s in it?
Her Night Time relies on herbal medicine more than any of the other supplements on this list. With passion flower and camomile root powder used to aid sleep quality. L-tryptophan is a well-known amino acid that can help to increase serotonin, regulating appetite and allowing you to sleep better. Alpha GPC is a decent fat burner  but it has been added here primarily as a cognitive enhancer.
Her Night Time has only two main fat burning ingredients, conjugated linoleic acid which is supposed to increase fat burning and your metabolic rate, but has little evidence to support this. The other ingredient they use for fat burning is l-carnitine, which has a very small effect on weight loss, but is a thoroughly decent ingredient in other ways.
There is 5-HTP which is great for appetite suppression and cognition, and ashwagandha which can reduce cortisol and help to boost your mood.
How to take it
There are two capsules per serving, and 30 servings per container. All you have to do is take one serving 15-30 minutes before you go to sleep.
- Reduces stress and cortisol
- Helps you to sleep better
- Improves cognition
- Helps you to relax
- Suppresses appetite
- Isn’t particularly great at burning fat
This is such a good supplement for improving your sleep quality, reducing stress, and improving your mood. These things can indirectly help you to cut down on your calorie intake and lose weight. However, the supplement will do little to burn fat or raise your metabolic rate.
If you want to sleep better and control your appetite then this is a good supplement, but it will struggle to compete with Hourglass Fit which does the same thing but is more effective. Still, this is a great supplement, and as we said, it offers something different to the others on this list.
