Eat All You Want And Still Lose Weight? Makers Of Akävar 20/50 Hit With Class Action Lawsuit!

Eat All You Want And Still Lose Weight? Makers Of Akävar 20/50 Hit With Class Action Lawsuit!

Here’s a big surprise…

A class action suit has been filed against Daniel Mowrey, Mitchell Friedlander and the merry band over at Dynakor Pharmacal, Basic Research, or whatever the heck they happen to be calling themselves these days.

Lawsuits and controversy are pretty much all in a day’s work for these guys. For example, the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) took action against Mowrey et al in 2004. That’s when they operated under the moniker of “Klein Becker” and were flogging such weight loss gems as Pedialean, Anorex, Leptoprin, Dermalin, and Cutting Gel.  

In this case, it’s their Akävar 20/50 weight loss product that is causing all the trouble.

Apparently, the claim — “eat all you want and still lose weight” — doesn’t have any basis in fact (incidentally Akävar 20/50 contains the exact same ingredient profile as Estrin-D. Estrin-D is the subject of an unrelated class action filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, against Defendants Gay, Mowrey, Friedlander, Basic Research, Western Holdings, and others). 

The suit alleges that…

  • The Defendants claim that Akävar is the “European weight-loss breakthrough” is false. In fact, Akävar was not available in Europe prior to its U.S. introduction, and was created by Defendants in Utah, at their headquarters.
  • The core of Defendants’ fraudulent representations regarding Akävar is summarized in Defendants’ slogan: “Eat all you want and still lose weight.” 
  • In support of their claims that Akävar allows you to “Eat all you want and still lose weight,” the Defendants’ advertising asserts a number of facts. In fact, Defendants’ advertising claims are false, misleading, deceptive and inaccurate. Contrary to Defendants’ advertising claims, Akävar’s formulation is not the result of years of intensive research. Nor is Akävar a new generation of powerful, foolproof, bio-active weight-loss compound. 
  • Defendant Mowrey is not a medical doctor (the FTC has been after Mowrey for this before as well).
  • Akävar has not undergone scientific evaluation by a team of doctors, nor has Akävar been tested in controlled random clinical trials.
  • Akävar has not been tested for safety or efficacy, is not a part of a “new generation of fast-acting caloric restrictors,” and no “tests prove virtually 100% success.” 
  • The Defendants intentionally mislead consumers as to the evaluation and testing of the product.
  • As part of their advertising campaign for Akävar, Defendants use the phrases: “and we couldn’t say it in print” and “and we couldn’t say it in print if it wasn’t true,” both registered trademark phrases of Defendant Western Holdings. These phrases are false, and are intended to be, and are, misleading to consumers.  
  • There is no clinical or scientific support for Defendants’ representations that Akävar has the ability to cause pockets of fat to be pulled from bulging parts of consumers’ bodies!

Phew! There’s a lot there, eh?

Here’s what we know for sure…

Mr Mowrey and his associates have been in trouble with the FTC before for making false and unsubstantiated claims. Mowrey has been caught misrepresenting himself as a medical doctor on previous occasions as well. 

Akävar 20/50 is not some new miraculous European weight loss breakthrough, but a re-branded version of Estrin-D. There have been no clinical studies performed on Akävar, and certainly there’s no evidence that validates the claim that you can “eat all you want and still lose weight.”

What’s most disturbing about this case is not that there are individuals of dubious integrity who are using underhanded means to sell you products of questionable effectiveness. Unfortunately, this is pretty common (as evidenced by Elissa in her latest post). What’s disturbing is that it seems like this  same group of guys is doing it over and over again, and the FTC seems unable to do anything to stop it.

It would be nice to see this action settled overwhelmingly in favor of the plaintiffs, and frankly, I have hard time seeing how it could go any other way. And it would be nice to see the FTC step in and shut these guys down for good.

  1. These guys peddle more than just weight loss supps – they also market bodybuilding supps (e.g. Endothil) and cosmetics (e.g. Strivectin).

    Problem is, these various legal and governmental actions are in reference to individual supplements and claims. It’s like trying to lop the heads off a hydra – if you take out one supplement of theirs, a new one will take its place. Whatever damage they suffer in the process pales besides the profits they make – it’s just the price of doing business. And it will never end, as long as there are “sheeple” willing to provide them with luxury cars and vacation homes.

  4. I bough this product and have been on it for a week. The only results I have had is an unexpected period and back pain. After reading the reserch on Akavar I am stopping the use and going to attempt to get my money back threw there money back garentee which is proably bogus as well. Wish me luck!

  6. Alice, I see your post links to an Akavar 20/50 sales site, which makes you hardly an impartial player here.

    Just so I have this straight — you’re telling me it’s OK to make outrageous claims, fabricate “clinical studies”, misrepresent and plain lie about the various details alleged in the suit — to a largely desperate and gullible audience, provided there’s a money back guarantee?

    If I went looking, do you think it would be difficult for me to find people who were unable to obtain a refund for their product? Just curious…

  7. TBH. Akavar worked for me. The first pill I took in the morning curbed my appetite REALLY well. I just DID NOT want to eat and the sight of food didn’t even jar anything inside of me. It felt great. I grew a tolerance to it after two weeks so I stopped taking it. I started it up again and it worked again.

    I get nothing out of telling the truth. But for me AKAVAR 20/50 did initially work and tbh, if it wasn’t so expensive, I’d buy another bottle.

  8. Greetings all, I’ve been on Akavar for a week and it is working for me. I don’t know if I’ve lost pounds or just inches (won’t get on the scale until I’m done with the entire bottle), but I certainly see a difference. However, after reading all the negative feedback about this product/company and its officers I’m pretty certain I’ll NEVER purchase it again. BTW, I bought a 32 capsule bottle from Target for just $16.99 (the price is what made me purchase it).
    Blessings!

  9. I just started taking it, I got it at wal-mart for about the same price, it seems to be working for me. I felt great the day after I started taking it.

  10. I dont know about anyone else, but it actually worked for me and its the only thing that has. Ive tried other diet pills and diets and exercise and everything, but nothing worked as well as Akavar. I think I lost about 5 pounds a week when I was on it and I was on it for about a month. I just am thankful here in WA its available at wal-mart

  11. It’s working for me I’m almost finished with my first bottle, and it really does curve the appetite. Is there any harmful side effects like long term?

  12. I do not know about anyone else but akavar works for me. I am at the point where without akavar, I would eat everything in site and just keep getting bigger. Too, bad some guy decided to pig out on mcdonald’s, ice cream, and buffet style dining. The company can hardly be blamed for that. That’s like saying one size does really fit all. We know that is not true. I take akavar and I see results. I better stuck up before some idiot make sure I can’t buy it anymore.

  13. I read that in an akavar study, 23 out of 24 lost weight. Well i guess i would be that one person that it didnt work for. Ive been taking akavar for about 2 months and i feel hungry, tired, and lazy. Before taking it, i was not overweight but i need some extra help getting down to my ideal weight. When i wake up each morning its from stomach pains, so i take two pills 15 before i eat and 2 afterwards (just like it says on the box) and within 5 mins im running to the bathroom, to either vomit or……. you know. I also read its suppose to give you more energy, but all ive been doing since taking it is sleeping. This pill has also made my body addicted to water, not that water is a bad thing but it can be and inconvenience when a simple trip to the mall requires me to have 3 bottles of water and multiple trips to the bathroom. I dont know if this diet pill had these effects on me because i wasnt over weight to begin with, or my body is refusing it. In my opinion it doesnt work, i havent lost any weight, in fact ive gained some and its taking a toll on my skin as well. If anyone else is having negative reactions to this pill please leave a comment.

  14. I have just started taking akavar on new years (figured I would start the year off right)
    So far I like it. I drink alot of caffenine so knowing there is alot in the pill i switched to water so i didn’t feel jittery. It deff. makes me less hungry. I use to eat all the time but now i eat twice aday, im just not hungry anymore. I take two pills around 10 when i start to get hungry wait 15 minutes adn then eat (i never finish my plate!) and then around 6 Ill take two more and eat dinner.

    only bad part is at night my stomach starts to hurt a little but if akavar truely works… i could live with an upset stomach!!

  15. well i started my own dieted without these pills, and i lost 7lbs within 4 days, just by walking and biking, and drinking lots of water and eaten right, but i was at wal-mart and saw these pills, Akavar 20/50, im a skeptic person also, but i started taken them as of today, and for sure i’ll well leave updays aboout it, and i’ll tell you how much weight i’ve lost and if they do really work , but one thing about this product, why havent they posted pictures of ppl, that they lost weight, whats up with that, i’ll tell u akavar, show some pics, before u jump the gun.

  16. I just took my first 2 last night the results reminded me of illegal stuff i used to take years ago but i also drank liquor last night (2 martinis and a glass of red wine) so my suggestion so far is not to do that!!!! My next option was to see about returning it but now that I have read what the rest of you have said I am gonna give it a try and let ya know at the end of the week. And not to be sooo dramatic, but I feel like this could be the Best or Worst idea I’ve ever had!!!!

  17. I’m mad b/c I can’t find Akavar anymore. It did work…curbed my appetite and made me indifferent to eating. I would start to feel slight hunger pangs on it, but it had some effect on my brain that made me disinterested in actually eating. And when I did eat, I was full fast. I loved it. Figures, same as usual, when a good diet aid comes out a few whiners ruin it for everyone. Just like the idiots that screwed us all out of the best diet aid ever, ephedrine. Of course if you abuse it you’ll have side effects! Duh! That’s why you don’t behave like a junkie, and only take what’s recommended! Uugh.

  18. Alysha, you are taking too many pills per day. Stated that you take two pills 15 minutes before oyu eat and then 2 afterwards, that’s 4 pills a day. Your are only suppose to take two pills per day…no wonder you are having problems.

    Post a Reply
  19. I started using Akavar 20/50 a few months ago. I take exactly the dose they recommend, 2 pills twice a day with a lot of water, about 15 minutes before I eat. I must say, it has worked for me. I am also exercising more and drinking lots of water and less fatty food, but I have gone from a size 16 to a size 10, and I have never felt better, had more energy, and just feel better in myself. Like everything, it will work for some, but not for others.
    For those who are concerned about the cost, I buy it online from the Akabar 20/50 website, and you can get the deal ‘buy 2 bottles and the third is free’. That brings the price down to about $26 a bottle. But also watch the CVS and Rite Aid inserts in Sunday’s paper. They quite often have it on special.
    I don’t work for Akavar, so I have nothing to gain either way, but all I can say is that it worked for me.

  20. Hi
    Does anyone know in how long I should see results. i weight 140 lbs and would like to be 120 lbs again. thank u

  21. My husband is taking Akavar 20/50. I dont think he has lost alot of weight yet but he is losing inches. I can tell by looking at him and I pack his lunch for work everyday and since he has been taking it, he hasnt been eating all of his lunch. I think that is does work. He has been taking it for about two weeks. I dont really beleive all the slogans, such as “eat all you want and still lose weight” and that you dont need exercise. My husband exercises a few times a week, and I think that helps. Also, you can get a 90 capsule bottle at Sams for like $11. Thats where I got it. It is really cheap!

  29. I have been on Akavar for a couple of years. I can eat whatever I want in moderation of course. I try not to eat late at night. I have had more energy since taking Akavar. I used to have coffee or tea for that morning kick to get extra needed energy, but that left me tired and stressed in no time. I bought my pills at Wal-Mart. When I stayed on a healthy diet, the pills gave me more energy to exercise. I lost about 30 pounds in three months. I don’t think there is any instant weight loss other than messing with operations. I don’t think it’s right to make a claim as it does. We all have to be smarter, there is no quick fix. I am just happy to have that extra boost. I am curious if the ingredients affects the liver though. If you give it a try, try exercising and maybe check out Dr. Phil’s small book The Ultimate Weight Solution Food Guide. It will tell you the no nos on foods, calories, fat content, and foods that burn quickly and those that make you gain weight. Good louck to all of you out there. Don’t give up! Try the book. I bought it for 8 bucks.

  33. akavar- have any of you women had symptoms of: nervousness, heart palpatations, fluttery, anxiety…mood swings????

    who would want to lose weight with all that????

    I went to the doctors with these pills (kaiser).. and let me just say… the statement that the ingredients have not been tested by the fda… protects them for now. there are harmful side effects to taking such a cocktail.

    today: I am breathing easier… eating right losing still….working out daily (hard)…because that is the key to success!!!! not doing it half ass. and im okay… pill free.

    I have been on the diet wagon all my life: look at me now, ww, slimfast, metabolife, slimquick,…you name it…

    in the end… You the consumer pay someone to make them rich..while you… jeoprodize your health and YOYO because you relied on something other than you to control your eating habits and working out. so is it worth it for some big hancho to get rich while you put that weight back on in 8 mos… or pop some different pills for another cycle of trying to take it off again…further damaging your heart????

    its not for me…

  36. I tried Akavar about a year ago. I lost about six pounds in a week or so. However, I couldn’t remember to take the pills as it says on the bottle so I eventually just threw them out. I was pleased with the quickness of the weight loss and would really like to try it again but there are so many dangerous ingredients that could be detrimental to one’s health that I don’t believe it’s worth the risk. I am considering the Mediterannean diet.

  39. okay, i was reading all these comments and can’t tell real from fake, maybe they are all real. I don’t even know.

    But, I’m gonna try this stuff and seriously give you updates. I will let you know when I buy them(tomorrow or next day) and give you my height/weight/age. then every week give you my before and after weight. I’ve seen TONS of bad reviews(false citings of the product) and Ive seen good reviews(despite false things, that they actually do work). i’m real, and stick with me. i’m gonna get to the bottom of this whether they work or not.

    last but not least, i’m NOT gonna worrying about working out and or watching what i eat either for 1 month. i’m gonna do my NORMAL lifestyle, because they say they work great without dieting. (i’m not fat lol, but you’ll get my info later).

    Thanks for reading, i’ll hear from you soon. =]

  42. I just started taking the Akavar 20/50 today. I need to lose about 75 lbs, so I will try to keep the progress posted. I will also post if it does not work for me. I see that there are many postings which consumers claim that it has worked for them. I am at a point where I am almost too heavy to exercise without losing some weight first, so I am hoping I am one of those who have good results. If I can lose some weight then I will also incorporate some no or low impact exercises first, then move on to a more strenuous exercise regimen as the weight loss allows. Akavar was affordable for me at our local Wal-Mart, so I hope it works!

  44. Hello – I was at Walmart today and begged my husband to buy them for me for about $20.00. We were there for diapers. I’m trying them for the first time tomorrow. I am 5’7 and weigh 217 (3 kids in 3 years… that’ll do it to ya!) I want to get down to 150… I’m not really giving myself a time limit – but the sooner the better… I’ve been checking this and several other websites and I’m finding more a lot positive than negative reviews. So I’ll give it a shot. I’ll update in a week or so! Wish me luck!!!

  45. I have been on Avakar for a month and a half and lost 17lbs. You have to drink a lot of water and you dont feel like eating but you must eat. I drink sodas or coffee. I eat smaller portions and still take my vitamins. I have lots of energy. Went from 214 to 197. I walk 30-45 3 times a wk. I would recommend this product.

  47. Me again. I know I said I’d update in a week, but I am so excited! I stepped on the scale this morning and I am now 213. (Why am I excited about that?) Four days ago I was 217. And I haven’t done any real exercise at all. I have been doing my Ab Slide every night, though. It’s giving me huge amounts of energy to do the housework. I would probably be losing more if I did workout, so I am going to take the kids to the park and walk for about an hour today. I’ll keep checking in!

  48. I absolutely love akavar. I am on my second bottle and have lost a lost of weight. It is the only thing that has ever worked for me. The only side effect I have experienced is if I take it too late in the day, it is harder to sleep than normal.

  49. Me again… still in love with Akavar. I started 5/21 and today is 6/1 and I lost 10 lbs. I am still way heavy – 5’7 210. But at this rate maybe I’ll actually have the confidence to get out of the house and do something this summer! My brother-in-law noticed a difference today… if you knew him, you’d be as amazed as I am.

  51. kmd23 – I edited your post to remove the pejorative comment. You may not like the FTC action, nor Paul’s discussion of it, but there is nothing stated above that’s remotely untrue, in any way, shape or form. Whether something works for you is an entirely separate issue from whether a manufacturer can legally CLAIM something works in advertisements, in the absence of data obtained under controlled conditions.

  53. I think limiting refined sugar intake is better than any gimmick. Even better than exercise. There is no minimum daily requirement for refined sugar.

  54. It works for me. I take one in the morning, one before lunch, one before dinner. When I don’t take them, I can eat 4 pieces of pizza, when I am taking them, 2 pieces make me feel stuffed. I’ve had a Snicker’s Bar in my drawer for a week with no urge to eat it (for me, that’s dead solid proof).

    If I take 2 as the bottle says, it bothers my stomach and… um… evacuation isn’t pleasant. 1/1/1 and I’m fine. From my perspective “eat all you want and still lose weight” seems true. I don’t want to eat as much.

  56. I bought a bottle of Avakar a few months ago and forgot about it, its been in my medicine cabinent and I recently found it. I am 5’8 and weigh about 240, I am more and more unhappy with myself, and seem to want to eat more and more, I am hoping this will help me jump start a healthier life style, I need to loose some wight before starting a heavy exercise routine. I will keep updating my results! Good luck everyone!

  58. WOW, i am amazed at all the different comments about this product. I purchased my first bottle today at CVS for $10. I am going to do just two pills a day to start; once in am and once in the afternoon. I am a member of my local Curves and with eating healthy and exercising 5-6 days a week(no joke; i’m serious about losing weight), I have lost about 27 lbs. I started off at 264 and now I am at 237. I have platoed(spelling?) for two months and I need something to jump start this again. I am also trying the Acai supplement. I take Omega 3-6-9 everyday as well. My goal to be healthy and more active. Weight wise, it is the clothing and how small of a size I can get into. I cannot remember ever being below an 18; currently a 24. I would love to see 12. Good luck to Kristina and Jaz…we should keep each other posted. PS I hope I don’t get the stomach upset, that would stink. LOL

  60. here is an update: I took this yesterday for the first time. One before breakfast and one before lunch. I felt like I could do anything; really good. I just took another today before breakfast. I am going to continue and give it a chance to work. When I ate yesterday, I became fuller faster(I know drinking water before eating fills you up). But, I felt energized and didn’t want to eat anymore than what I needed. I feel that the statement that they have on their bottle is only true if you listen to your body and stop eating when you are satisfied. This will make you lose weight because your body is not getting as much food as it did before. All I can say is give it a try. The ingredients are things that your body could use anyway. Good Luck. Dee, I am sorry that you became ill and could not continue. Regarding the weight gain, sometimes that happens before you actually lose fat and not just water weight. I hope you are able to continue on your journey to a healthy weight for yourself. Kristina and Jaz, how is all with you? To everyone else, thank you for all the comments, good and bad, I know that there are others that can use any and all support from new friends. God Bless!

  62. I lost 20 pounds using this product in less than a year. Now WalMart in my area no longer carries this product, and I certainly miss it. I had 10 more pounds to go. It did work for me. You have to take it following the directions indicated on bottle.

  63. I have been taking it for 6 months and only take one capsule every morning when I brush my teeth and over the 6 months time I have lost 23 pounds! I don’t do extra exercise or drink more water. I haven’t had diarrhea or stomach problems. It takes away the urge to eat for me and I only eat 2 times a day. I had about 40 more pounds to loose and went back to get more at Walmart and couldn’t find it anymore!! I really like it and would buy again if I could.

  64. My sister works for one of the companies listed and she lets me get AKAVAR and it works for me I weighted about 200 p. now I weight 195 its very slow working but I do get some side affects like Diarrhea and not wanting to eat.

    I am sorry about the bad stuff but I think it depends on the person that takes it.

  65. Okay i started taking this Tuesday (3/2/2010)
    I gotta admit I LOVE IT!!!! i take the recomended dosage. (2 before 2 main meals) So i take 2 15 min before i eat a small breakfast and then 2 more 15 min and before lunch (I tried the first night to take them before dinner but i was up half the night becuase of the caffine) I haven’t noticed any side effects.. I do however have tons of energy which helps cause i work with kids. I eat three small meals a day and have a snack. And drink lots of water!!!!! I have so far since tuesday lost 8lbs and am looking to loose 40 by july!!! Now i know the bottle says “eat what u want and still loose weight” K it does not mean go pig out and be fine.. It means u don’t have to cut out everything u normally do in a diet.. Which helps with i would believe many people. I so far love it again and have gotten a friend to try it.. I will u keep you all posted!! AND GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE

  67. I’ve been on this pill for about 12 days and lost 4 lbs. I thought I would lose more than 4lbs though! I take 2 before breakfast and I force myself to eat as it is the most important meal of the day then I get really hungry at noon right after I work out for 45 min. I am not sure if i keep dropping pounds! Also does anyone know how long we can stay on this pill for? I read people have been using for months, is it ok to use for that long?

Not everybody as the same metabolism. And if you don’t see the weight you can see inches fall of your body. And I been on them for a good whole year and still losing weight. To EVERYONE THAT WANT TO LOSE WIEGHT I TRUST YOU’LL LOSE THE WEIGHT EXERISE AND TRY TO EAT RIGHT AND IF TOU FEEL THAT YOUR STILL HUNGRY AFTER YOU EAT. EAT A FRUIT IT HELP ME . SO GOOD LUCK TO THOSE THAT WHAT TO LOSE WEIGHT. REMEMBER LOSING WEIGHT TAKES TIME ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPENED OVER NIGHT. And you can get them in CVS, Walmart,and walgrens.

  69. I also went to Wal-Mart to buy more and they have quit selling it here also. I can’t even find it at CVS. I love taking Akavar. I only took the 2 pills once a day, usually before lunch cause I am not a breakfast eater. The Akavar gave me so much energy and I lost weight. All I can say is….WalMart, bring back the Akavar.

  72. I took Akavar as per the bottle. I found it worked and inhibited my desire to eat a dinner meal. I did lose 15 pounds. By week 6 I began to have a sharp pain in my torso right side. Next, I began to have a lengthy period, and I’m 66. Within a few weeks, I passed a kidney stone in the ER, my first ever! Oddly, it was the color of the Akavar pill. I stopped immediately after reading other’s comments. The side effects I experienced were enough to convince me to stop taking Akavar. My medical bills from Akavar’s effects were substantial. Please be very cautious before using this product.

  73. I took this for almost a year and lost about 50 pounds, it worked for me only problem now is I can’t find it any where near me and I have 20 pounds left to go.

  74. I was shocked to read this because I have been taking this for months as so far it has been the only supplement that has worked for me in both appetite suppressant and more energy. Of course I don’t expect any pill to work without my doing some of the work also and that is where it helps me. I eat less and take 2 a half hour before my workout in the mornings and work out better.
