Ultra Fast Keto Boost is — allegedly — a keto supplement for rapid weight loss. Its creators claim that Ultra Fast Keto Boost helps you burn fat faster on a keto diet.
This weight loss supplement is advertised as Shark Tank’s number one campaign in history. Allegedly several high-power investors backed the product after seeing its results.
The company that manufactures Ultra Fast Keto Boost claims that their diet pills can help you get into ketosis faster, lose body fat, and more.
But are these keto pills legit, or are they a scam?
To be brief, Ultra Fast Keto Boost has all the signs of a scam: dishonest marketing practices, before-and-after photos that appear to be heavily photoshopped, outrageous claims about efficacy, and a non-specific ingredients list hidden behind legal loopholes for labeling.
Here’s a closer look at this questionable keto weight loss pill, and why you’re better off avoiding it.
Shark Tank is a show on ABC in which successful entrepreneurs consider investing in products. Products endorsed on Shark Tank often go on to become very successful.
Ultra Fast Keto Boost’s official website makes no claims about it being on Shark Tank, but virtually all of its advertisements imply that Ultra Fast Keto Boost was on the show — and that it was the most successful product in Shark Tank history.
There is no record of this diet pill appearing on Shark Tank, nor is there any record of Shark Tank’s investors backing the product.
Ultra Fast Keto Boost claims that its fat burner pills can help you get into ketosis and lose a pound of body fat per day.
There are a lot of positive reviews supporting those claims…but most of them seem to be paid ads from websites that say they’re objective reviewers of keto supplements.
These sites universally praise Ultra Fast Keto Boost, and their “objective” reviews are littered with “Buy Now!” buttons and questionable before-and-after photos of alleged users who lost weight.
NEW Keto Bar Variety Pack
3 of our most popular Keto Bar flavors. Only 2-3g net carbs per bar. 100% real food ingredients.
Most of the web pages seem to be advertorials — paid advertisements meant to mislead readers by appearing objective.
Genuine customer reviews are far less flattering. At the time this article was published, Ultra Fast Keto Boost had a 3-star review on Amazon, with many customers complaining that the product did nothing. Some say that they had unpleasant side effects from taking the diet pills, and others say the product they received didn’t match the images online.
Ultra Fast Keto Boost’s main ingredients is beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB).
BHB is a reputable exogenous ketone that can help you boost your ketone production and increase your energy levels.
BHB is a legit ingredient — in fact, it’s in a lot of Perfect Keto products. It can help you fuel workouts without eating extra carbs and it’s great for overcoming the keto flu. BHB is a very popular supplement in the keto community.
BHB may be good, but the Ultra Fast Keto Boost supplement’s formula has a few issues.
The ingredient label lists three valid forms of BHB — sodium BHB, magnesium BHB, and calcium BHB — but they’re all mixed under a “proprietary blend.”
Proprietary blends are made to protect companies from copycats. Under a proprietary blend, you don’t have to list the exact amounts of ingredients in your product — just what ingredients the blend contains.
A lot of shady supplement companies use this loophole to use vanishingly small amounts of expensive products — just enough to legally put the product on the label — and pack the rest of the blend with cheap ingredients or fillers.
Ultra Fast Keto Boost pills contain 800 milligrams of a proprietary blend that includes BHB and MCT oil, but they don’t list the amounts, and the blend also contains other, cheaper ingredients, like apple cider vinegar and caffeine derived from green tea.
It’s plausible that the company is using virtually no BHB, and is instead basically selling apple cider vinegar or caffeine pills at a very high price.
Dietary supplements are not regulated by the FDA, so your best bet is always to choose supplements that list their ingredients transparently, with exact amounts, so you know exactly what you’re getting.
Claims about this product include advanced weight loss and fat burning (burning up to a pound of stored fat per day), increased energy, and more.
However, their before-and-after marketing photos appear to be heavily photoshopped, and they recommend taking their diet pills in conjunction with a ketogenic diet and plenty of exercise, which is a great program for weight loss anyway. There’s no meaningful evidence that this product does anything.
That said, a fair number of customer reviews report side effects. More than a quarter of the buyer reviews on Amazon are negative, and users report:
- severe stomach cramps
- racing heart
- itchy skin
- acid reflux
Most commonly, reviewers stated that the product did nothing to help them lose weight.
These are not the hallmarks of a successful product.
Dishonest marketing, outrageous weight loss claims, unclear ingredient labeling, and a bevy of poor customer reviews all point to Ultra Fast Keto Boost not working as it advertises. It appears to be a scam.
There’s no magic pill for weight loss or health, and you should be wary of anything that claims otherwise.
That said, following a low-carb diet or ketogenic diet is a great way to improve your health. It takes time and some effort, but many people have huge success with it.

This review was extremely biased and completely untrue. The author said, “When I tried it, I saw an improvement in less than one week. Ketone markers were up 14.4% above my non-supplemental baseline”. There are several things wrong with this statement:
- 800mg of BHB is not enough to cause an increase in ketone levels
- A 14.4% increase of a 0.1-0.2 mmol baseline would only increase from 0.1 to 0.11.
They also try to cover up the rumors of this company stealing money from customers by saying, “We also want to address an issue that has been reported online where some customers were automatically rebilled after their first order. From what we can tell, this was not a problem on the company’s side, as those customers had mistakenly chosen the subscription package available.” We have checked the keto diet pill sites and they don’t have any options for monthly or a one-time subscription. They are just billing people automatically and for a lot more than the advertised price.
This review then went as far as to try and delegitimize the claims that this product is a scam by saying, “It seems more than a little likely that in the mostly unregulated keto supplement market, the players from competing products are behind much of the scam talk.”
The author of this review then recommends purchasing the product and includes an affiliate link. Sites like this hide their deficit intends around legitimate, scientific information to try and build credibility around the product.
Why are People Falling for This?
With incredible before and after photos of celebrities like Kim K and Meghan Markle, 5-star reviews on Amazon, articles from reputable news sites like Us Weekly and Fox, and even airtime on TV shows like Shark Tank all endorsing this product, it seems like both an effective and legitimate product. That would be the case if any of their “evidence” was true. The websites and reviews are faked, the photos are stolen, and the claims are simply lies.
This company has even gone as far as to either endorse or create a fake supplement review website. We were contacted by ketogenicsupplementreviews.com in regards to taking a look at their educational keto content. After going through their website, nothing seemed out of the ordinary for a review site. After all, they have around 100 product reviews, breakdowns, and educational articles and they all seemed moderately scientific. It seemed legitimate until we read their page on the PureFit Keto pills, which are the same Shark Tank keto scam pills).
