About the Product:
Hunter Burn is a fat burner that was released in 2019. It comes in 30 serving containers, with a serving size of 6 capsules per day.
Straight away, this might be a problem for some people; we know that some don’t like swallowing this many capsules, but we did get used to it and it stopped being a problem for us after the first few days of taking Hunter Burn.
Ultimately, the results ensured that consuming 6 capsules daily was worth it.
As you’ll see later on in this review, Hunter Burn helped me halve by bodyfat percentage in just 8 weeks from 30% to 15%.
You can see from the container of Hunter Burn that it’s created to be a ‘premium’ supplement. It has a certain weight to it that makes it feel this way; much like how premium watches feel more substantial on your wrist, this fat burner looks the part when it arrives at your door.
Presented in a matte black container, it’s potentially the sleekest looking supplement container we’ve seen; while this isn’t exactly the most important thing, it does help knowing that no expense has been spared…especially since this fat burner isn’t cheap.
Before we get to my personal experience with Hunter Burn, I’ll take you through the ingredients in this fat burner – so you know exactly what you are thinking of putting into your body.
Who is Hunter Burn Aimed at?
It’s always natural to consider who each product you are interested in is aimed at (the ‘target market’).
You’ll see many lifestyle pictures on Hunter’s website, not just guys with their shirt off. This means that Hunter Burn has not only been created for the gym freaks (like me) who enjoy lifting weights for far too much time in their life…
Instead, it’s clear that Hunter Burn has been created for anyone. Guys that work in suits. Guys over and under 30. You get the point – anyone who is looking for the best fat burner containing clean ingredients that won’t cause side effects.
However, one thing we did notice is that there are no pictures of women on this fat burner. So, maybe Hunter Burn’s ideal demographic doesn’t include females.
Although I can’t see any reason why this fat burner wouldn’t work for females, I believe that Instant Knockout might be more ‘female friendly’ due to having a dedicated page ‘for women’ on there.
If you’re interested and female, then you can check out Instant Knockout’s dedicated women’s page here. But as I mentioned, there is no reason why females can’t use Hunter Burn (in my honest opinion).
Anyway, you’ve now heard enough about my opinion on this. Let’s move onto something you might be more interested in. The ingredients that make up this fat burner’s supplement facts label.

Hunter Burn Ingredients Explained
If you’ve read my supplement reviews on LeanBulking before, you know that I always focus on the ingredients contained in supplements.
Why? Well, the ingredients are the features that ‘make or break’ each product. And the main reason I chose to try Hunter Burn was because I was impressed by its nutrient profile.
In fact, I hadn’t seen any other fat burner since Instant Knockout (which was my favorite fat burner for many years) contain any appetite suppressants in effective dosages until Hunter Burn. That’s pretty impressive because I’ve reviewed and tried quite a lot of supplements.
Konjac Root Extract (aka. Glucomannan) is actually my favorite appetite suppressant in food form and in supplements. So, I was very happy to see that it was contained in this fat burner.
Not only that, I was also impressed that tried-and-tested thermogenics such as Cayenne Pepper Extract and Matcha Green Tea Power were contained in its formula; I often see ‘Green Tea Extract’, but having Matcha in this product certainly makes it seem more ‘premium’ than others on the market.
You’ll hear all about my thoughts on the ingredients, as well as general facts about them, in this section. By the end of this Hunter Burn Review, you’ll have a good understanding of how safe and effective this fat burner really is – and whether it will help you get shredded.
Here’s Everything You Need To Know:
Those that don’t know much about nutrition might pass Vitamin D3 off as ‘just another vitamin’. However, things get more interesting when you find out that it’s technically a hormone.
Why and how is it technically a hormone? Well, your body naturally synthesizes Vitamin D3 from sunlight when your skin is exposed to it – making it very safe.
But why is it in a fat burner? That’s a fairly good question, because Vitamin D3 is known for its ability to boost testosterone levels. But not so much for being able to promote fat loss.
The good news is that this nutrient has shown to deliver great results in clinical human studies over the course of 6 weeks .
As a result, Vitamin D3 becomes a relevant addition to a fat burner. The added bonus is that there is a big 3000IU dosage of this nutrient, which is more than enough to be effective in Hunter Burn – you don’t see many fat burners containing this amount of Vitamin D3.
I will point out that we do consume a multivitamin from Performance Lab (click link to see product) that contains Vitamin D3 daily anyway. So, for me, it wasn’t a ‘necessary’ addition in Hunter Burn. But many people don’t consume a supplement containing this nutrient, so it’ll certain benefit those people more.
Konjac Root Extract
If you didn’t skim through this review, you’ll know that Konjac Root Extract (aka. Glucomannan) is my favorite appetite suppressant. I actually always find places to eat ‘Konnyaku’ when visiting Japan because I find it tasty too.
How does Konjac Root Extract curb your appetite? Well, it expends in your stomach (safely) after you consume it. Making you feel ‘fuller for longer’, especially between meals so that you consume less calories overall – leading to you burning through more body fat.
Ultimately, Konjac Root Extract isn’t a thermogenic. So, it won’t directly induce fat loss. But due to its benefit being capable of helping you decrease your calorie intake without feeling hungry all day, it’s a pretty good addition to any fat burner supplement.
I believe that this nutrient does make a difference when consumed in a fat burner such as Hunter Burn. If you’ve gone to bed hungry as f*ck before, then you’ll know how unhappy that makes you – anything that can get rid of this issue while following a calorie deficient diet (in order to lose body fat) is welcomed by myself.
White Kidney Bean Extract
In case you’re wondering, White Kidney Bean Extract is known as a ‘carbohydrate blocker’. This means that it’s believed to decrease the negative effects from consuming carbs (eg. insulin spikes).
There have been conflicting studies showing the effectiveness of White Kidney Bean Extract. However, I believe that there are enough studies suggesting that it works, for this ingredient to be a reliable addition to fat burner supplements .
With that being said, I do believe that it’s more of a ‘bonus’ addition to Hunter Burn than a key ingredient like Konjac Root Extract.
We were surprised to see the inclusion of L-Theanine in this fat burner. It’s not really known for it’s effects on fat loss.
What does it do? Well, L-Theanine is known for being a relaxing agent that helps reduce stress levels. It’s also known for being able to work in synergy with Caffeine, to form a ‘Smart Caffeine‘ which has shown to improve your cognition.
If you drink a lot of coffee or tea, then consuming L-Theanine can be beneficial to help boost your mental performance at work or college . In fact, this is why it’s contained in my favorite nootropic supplement, Mind Lab Pro.
While the Hunter website claims that it’s able to promote fat loss, I’m not 100% convinced with this one.
However, as mentioned, I do believe that it’s still a beneficial ‘bonus’ addition to Hunter Burn due to it’s ability to reduce stress levels and offer mental performance benefits to those that consume caffeine daily through coffee or tea.
Matcha Green Tea Powder
For me, this is the main positive about Hunter Burn.
Those that buy Matcha Powder for its benefits know that it’s not cheap. So, knowing that there’s a generally expensive ingredient inside a supplement you’re consuming helps justify the premium price tag of Hunter Burn.
Most importantly, Matcha Green Tea Powder is known for its ability to promote fat loss due to containing high amounts of catechins. In fact, numerous studies conclude that Matcha contains 3x more catechins than regular green tea extracts found in other supplements  – meaning you get 3x the benefits with regards to fat loss, technically speaking.
Ultimately, Matcha Green Tea Powder has proven to fire up your metabolism and promote fat loss. So, I personally consider it to be a key addition in Hunter Burn. And one that I haven’t seen in any other reputable fat burner on the market (in my honest opinion).
Cayenne Pepper Extract
You might be thinking ‘why is a chili pepper in Hunter Burn’?
Well, think back to the last time you ate a chili pepper (even better if it was a cayenne pepper). You’ll remember that it probably made you sweat due to being spicy. Your heart rate increased, and if you ate enough, you would have been asking for for a glass of milk to cool your mouth down.
All of the things mentioned above help to promote fat loss; increased heart rate and body temperature result in more calories burned.
An interesting fact is that Cayenne Peppers contain an active ingredient called ‘Capsaicin’. This is what is responsible for its ‘spice’ and is the reason why ‘Cayenne Pepper Extract’ is added to fat burner supplements such as Hunter Burn.
Basically, consuming Cayenne Pepper Extract in a supplement means that you don’t have to put up with its heat levels, while still gaining its benefits (boost in fat loss). So, for me, I consider it to be a key addition to any effective fat burner.

My Personal Experience with Hunter Burn (Over 8 Weeks)
From fat belly to lean. I halved my bodyfat while taking Hunter Burn in just 8 weeks.
You read that correctly. I managed to shred a crazy amount of bodyfat in a short amount of time, due to the tried-and-tested nutrients in this fat burner.
To be precise, I went from 30% bodyfat to 15%. Not quite to ‘6 pack’ level, but enough so that you can see the outline of my abs. For just 8 weeks, I was pretty happy with the results.
It wasn’t easy. I followed a calorie deficient diet (meaning I consumed less calories than I burned each day) and lifted weights 4 times per week during this time too; I strongly recommend that you also workout in the gym if you intend on taking a fat burner, to ensure you get the best results.
Why? Because fat burner supplements aren’t miracle pills. They won’t melt your fat away while you sit on the sofa watching your favorite TV series (even if Game of Thrones does make your heart rate increase…due to looking at Emilia Clark…).
Anyway, why did I only document my fat burning journey for 8 weeks? Well, the amount of calories I was cutting wasn’t sustainable.
I certainly don’t recommend that you follow extreme diets, but I just wanted to show you what is possible if you really want to do it. Of course, you could get the same results as me following a more sustainable diet over the course of 12-16 weeks, providing you’re still in a calorie deficit.
I’ve included my before and after photos to show you what going from 30% bodyfat to 15% looks like. You’ll see that I had a beer belly at the start (due to the fact that I spent a bit too long enjoying myself) with a beer in hand. But I managed to get back into relatively good shape using Hunter Burn and getting my lifestyle back-on-track.
My favorite things about Hunter Burn:
- I didn’t feel hungry at night – the worst thing about dieting is feeling hungry in bed, where you begin obsessively thinking about junk food. Hunter Burn worked and curbed my hunger cravings.
- I felt happy with no mood swings – let’s face it, many of us feel bitter when trying to lose weight. But I felt generally happy during my fat loss journey with Hunter Burn, mainly due to not experiencing any hunger cravings and seeing my bodyfat drop each week. This could also have been attributed to the calming effects of L-Theanine.
- I felt more motivated to shred bodyfat – we’ve all set our goal to drop bodyfat but never reached it. But I felt more motivated than ever…probably so that my money didn’t go to waste. Whatever the reason, it worked for me.
- I halved my bodyfat percentage – you can see in my ‘before and after’ pictures that I didn’t start off in a good place. I had been at my all-time ‘fattest’, which was even more upsetting as I had generally been in fairly good shape 1 year previously, but that’s what happens when you drink too much beer and junk food, while getting lazy with the gym. The good news is that Hunter Burn helped me get back to a respectable shape (15% bodyfat) in a pretty short amount of time.

Hunter Burn Side Effects
Some of you will simply skim to this section to find out whether Hunter Burn causes any side effects. That’s how important it is to find a safe and reliable supplement that won’t make you feel like sh*t.
If you haven’t already, you can find out my opinions of the ingredients in this fat burner in the section above. If you read it, you’ll know that Hunter Burn contains safe ingredients that have shown to promote fat loss in clinical studies – that’s good news.
More good news is that Hunter Burn didn’t cause any side effects while I was taking it. So, in my honest opinion, I believe that this fat burner is free from side effects.
As a added bonus ‘gem’ of information, I recommend that you avoid fat burners containing Synephrine & Yohimbe; these are 2 ingredients that are known for causing side effects in supplements. So, I was glad that Hunter Burn doesn’t contain Synephrine or Yohimbe, or any potentially harmful nutrients.
Hunter Burn Review Conclusion
You can see from my progress pictures that Hunter Burn is a pretty damn good fat burner supplement. It worked for me. And it could work for you too.
But what does ‘work’ mean? Well, it’s certainly not going to magically melt your fat away if you do nothing. But if you put the effort in (follow a calorie deficient diet and workout in the gym) then I believe that you’ll see faster results than you would normally, in my honest opinion.
Everything checks out. Hunter Burn contains numerous ingredients that have shown to work in clinical studies; I was happy that it contained Konjac Root Extract, which is my favorite appetite suppressant in any supplement, as well as proven thermogenics such as Cayenne Pepper Extract and Matcha Green Tea Powder.
The bottom line is that Hunter Burn helped me cut my bodyfat from 30% to 15%. Make of that what you will. But when I’m looking to cut fat again, Hunter Burn will be at the top of my list of supplements to take again.
