Anne Hathaway Drinks Thermo Bubbles to Boost Fat Burning

Hollywood is getting ready for the Oscars, and Us Weekly is making us privy to celebs' red-carpet secrets. Among their arsenal of tricks is trainer David Kirsch's Thermo Bubbles ($40 for 10 servings). Supposedly Anne Hathaway, among other actresses and models, partake in this herbal drink that claims to "melt away the fat naturally" along with boosting energy and metabolism levels.

Each 16-oz. serving contains 10 calories with no added sugar. Its ingredients are white tea, guarana (which makes the list of a prominent cardiologist's dangerous diet supplements), ginseng, and green tea. The energy boost probably comes from the caffeine in the green tea. Drinking this fizzy beverage, made from powder you add to water, is said to curb appetites, and the website claims Thermo Bubbles won't give you the jitters or make you crash like coffee or other energy drinks can.

To find out if this can help you lose weight


I don't believe this is the magic pill to make fat melt away, and I am not a fan of appetite suppressants. Your body needs calories to burn in order to function. Kirsch recommends drinking his bubbly twice a day, making this an expensive habit — well over $50 a week. But what happens when you stop drinking it? Will your raging appetite return? The best way to lose weight is to exercise and limit your calorie intake under the amount of calories you're burning, without dipping under 1200 calories a day. Why not just drink some green tea, which is considerably cheaper and offers a bevy of health benefits? Or try these five foods to boost your metabolism.

I bought this out of curiosity. Not a magic bullet and way too expensive to use everyday. In some ways I wonder if it is a placebo effect. I drank it when I was working out - and usually followed it with good ole H2O. But like it has been said here, there are several varieties of teas that will work as effectively. I have green tea and oolong tea at home. In the end moderation is the key. Overuse of anything is a bad thing.

" The energy boost probably comes from the caffeine in the green tea" Um.. are you serious? Just a thought here it could be from the GUARANA..which has like twice the caffiene of coffee. Anyway, I figure that these things don't work, and the only reason they would.. would be because the caffiene gives you the energy to work it off or makes you fidget so much you burn calories.

Ugh, that sounds horrible. I avoid anything with guarana.

Pegona, I was just going to say the same thing.. Guarana IS caffiene.. not sure how it wouldn't cause the "crash" that you get from coffee. Maybe the caffiene in the teas have a different "burn off" period than the guarana.. regardless, I won't be trying it, I'll just stick with my sugar free gum in between meals!

I'm a fan of David Kirsch & like his book a lot, but this sounds ridiculous. Anne Hathaway seems obsessed with weight loss. She used to be really pretty with more curves.

why not just drink tea . . .? Less calories, cheaper, and probably healthier/safer. It doesn't have the fizzies, but it probably would help control cravings, since you sip it slowly. There are teas with special blends for energy, or with more antioxidants. There's even one that I drink before a night out if I know I will be drinking. I used to be a fan but I just lost a lot of respect for Kirsch.

Guaranine and caffeine are chemically identical. Like any kind of caffeinated substance, way too much guaranine can be dangerous, but in small quantities it certainly is not.

im a big believer in david kirsch's methods.. however i think at this point hes just trying to capitalize on his fame by slapping his name on energy drinks im old school, prefer a diet red bull!

Completely agree, Spectra and Fit. Looking closely, many of these "magical" and "trendy" diet drinks and pills contain the same natural things found in green tea and other teas as well as vitamins--with the price cranked way up! Much cheaper to just enjoy some green tea and supplements, as well as healthy snacks, for those fat-burning benefits! That and the gym. Nothing takes the place of some good ol' sweat!

What a crock of sh*t. It's just like every other ripoff weight loss pill/supplement: lots of caffeine and some green tea thrown in to increase your heart rate and make you jittery. I'm with Fit--just drink green tea. It's way cheaper and a lot more healthy for you.

i'm always interested in the next fad to help me lose weight, but im not a believer in drinks like this. i always fear the whole bubbly thing too - seeing as how there's often times that it's like alkeselter and that's not tasty

I LOVE these. I usually have one a day, mid afternoon, between lunch and snack time. I get a huge energy boost, snack less, and get tons of energy to power through the rest of my day. The girls in my office joke that it's like our crack. I have used a lot of his products but this remains my fave.

I saw this in the bliss catalogue and was curious about it...I would give it a shot before a big event
This is a big no. If I want an energy boost I'll have a flavored black coffee thanks.
