If there are fat blockers, there are carbohydrate blockers as well. Oh but carbohydrates are one of the best things in life, as pizza, pasta, bread and potato lovers will attest. Yes, one of the best things and necessary too; but their overconsumption leaves you with a body you have no one to blame but yourself.
What Is Dietrine?
Dietrine is a weight loss supplement that goes the route of carbohydrate blocking to aid diet pill takers to lose weight. Dietrine decreases the amount of carbohydrates the body absorbs and allows the excess to pass out safely. It is a caffeine and stimulant-free formulation that consists of only 100% natural ingredients.
The Science Behind Dietrine:
The body converts carbohydrates to sugar for energy, which is all very well and good if you expend as much energy as your carb intake can allow. The problem however is that our modern diet is high in carbohydrates so that there is most likely an excess intake in almost every meal. Whatever carbohydrates the body can’t use is excess sugar which is stored as fat, the accumulation of which adds to body weight over time. Excessive carbohydrate eating is one of the major causes of weight gain.
Dietrine decreases the sugar converting action of a pancreatic enzyme called alpha amylase so that less sugar is absorbed by the body. The sugar-converted carbohydrates are allowed to pass out safely through the digestive system. Less sugar, less calories and therefore no weight gain.
Does Dietrine Give You License To Carbo Load?
A lot of sites selling Dietrine gleefully advise that you can eat your carb-laden faves and even insinuate that you can actually gorge on them. Dietrine is not a miracle pill. As a weight loss aid, it exists to assist you in making sensible diet and lifestyle changes, not promote old, health damaging habits.
So NO, Dietrine can only block so much and your weight gain will still boil down to the amount of calories you take in versus the amount of calories you expend.
What’s In A Pill?
Dietrine takes pride in carrying the clinically studied patented formulation, Phase 2™ as its main ingredient. Phase 2™ is a derivative of the white kidney bean. It acts as an amylase neutralizer which helps reduce the absorption of carb-converted sugar and therefore calories. The Dietrine website outlines seven Phase 2™ clinical trials for anyone’s scrutiny.
Dietrine also includes Chelavite®, a branded form of chromium that regulates blood sugar and therefore metabolism. It also deters the formation of new fat from carbohydrates.
Vanadium forms the third ingredient in Dietrine. Although this trace element is used in dietary supplements, its role in insulin regulation and muscle building has not been clinically proven.
The Bottom Line:
Dietrine seems to stand on a good, solid premise. Although the clinical studies on its primary ingredient, Phase 2™, aren’t exactly published peer-reviewed studies, Dietrine is still worth a try. The supplement should work as a good dietary aid but only as a kick towards the right direction of changing your eating habits. You cannot expect to lose weight with Dietrine if you insist on eating the same amount of refined carbohydrates, instead of curbing their consumption.
Dietrine is a little pricey at U$ 49.95 a bottle compared to other carb blockers with the Phase 2™ ingredient. Natrol Carb Intercept® sells for almost U$ 15.00 less and Starch Blocker Plus, around U$ 31.00 less; but then, these competitors don’t have the added ingredients Dietrine has.

Dietrine seems to have a good carb blocking ingredient on its side. Lesser priced pills of its kind though may do just as well.
