7-DFB (7-Day Fat Burner) is manufactured by Orovo and claims to be the only fat burner that can deliver weight loss of between seven to twenty-one pounds in a one week period, without diet and exercise. Though it also suggests that diet and exercise will increase the amount of potential weight loss the consumer can achieve. 7-DFB lists its ingredients as Ephedra free, all-natural, and containing only the things that ‘Mother Nature intended to be included in a healthy body.’
What is 7-DFB?
7-DFB contains over thirty ingredients, like Potassium Gluconate, Chromium Polynicotinate and Caffeine Anhydrous, including the following with over 100 mg: Dandelion Root, Psyllium Husk, Oat Bran Fiber, Rice Bran Fiber, Apple Pectin Powder, Fennel Seed, Glucomannan, Flax Seed Powder, Uva Ursi and Cranberry Powder Extract.
In order to achieve weight loss, consumers are required to take six capsules, twice each day for seven days with plenty of water. Dandelion root, juniper berry, and uva ursi are natural diuretics. While caffeine will provide an energy boost and the oat and rice bran fibers will provide the desired ‘full’ feeling to control the appetite.

7-DFB Review – The Bottom Line
7-DFB does not get rave reviews. First is the recommended dosage of twelve pills per day, six pill in the morning and six at lunch time. There were many reports of illness resulting from consuming the pills, even at less than ½ the recommended daily dosage.
In addition, 7-DFB is packed with a number of natural diuretics which will eliminate excess water from the body, thereby reducing overall body weight. However, the body has not lost any fat nor built any muscle, but simply weighs less. After re-hydration the weight loss will disappear and the consumer will again revert back to his/her former weight. Depending on the reason for weight loss, 7-DFB may not fit the bill.
7-DFB does contain caffeine which is linked to risks for heart attacks and can produce side effects such as nausea, headaches, moodiness, anxiety, and jitteriness. Diet and exercise were encouraged in combination with 7-DFB in order to lose significant weight, but users did not appear to experience phenomenal results.
Consumers averaged a weight loss of between eight to nine pounds. Additionally, because consumers exercised and/or watched their caloric intake, they could not directly attribute their meager successes to 7-DFB. Most lost weight typical for a decent exercise program combined with a sensible diet, along with the ingestion of a diuretic for a one week duration, instead of the up to twenty-one pounds advertised.
Finally, Orovo the manufacturer of 7-DFB has been linked to numerous consumer complaints regarding both products and questionable business practices. 7-DFB does not appear to live up to its claims.
