LeanMode vs. TRANS4ORM is the battle between supplements that want to improve the way you look from the inside. Talk about inner beauty.
LeanMode wants you to be fitter and sexier without the crash. It’s a fat burner that does away with stimulants and appeals to lifters who’ve had it with all the nasty side effects.
TRANS4ORM is trendy, in with the new crowd, and appeals largely to those who want to try something new but not alien. It guarantees one hell of a transformation if the label were to be believed.

Round 1: Formulas
LeanMode provides old school, stim-free approach to fat burning.
Talk about keeping it real. LeanMode is literally lean and clean on ingredients. There’s barely any filler and with just five ingredients, you know there is big room for potency.
It hits hard and fast with three of the five best fat burners in our list: Garcinia, Green Coffee Bean, and Green Tea Extract and they’re all standardized bro, so don’t you worry about the quality.
LeanMode then provides burn support thru CLA and ALCAR. CLA is an effective ingredient for weight management while ALCAR is an all-around metabolism booster and performance enhancer.
Best5 Editor’s Note: Due to its lean, clean formulation, Leanmode is ranked #5 on our Best 5 Fat Burner Supplements 2018 Edition.
TRANS4ORM is all about focus, focus, focus.
Compared to LeanMode, TRANS4ORM contains ingredients aimed to enhance focus and melt body fat. It’s a sound strategy since more focus = more exercise = more fat burn. Can’t argue with that logic.
- BUT, we do think it’s better to go for a pure, balls-to-the-wall mental domination nootropic instead of shoehorning a few brain compounds into a fat-burner.
Anyway, TRANS4ORM ssortment of fat burners specially with standardized Green Tea Extract + Caffeine + Synephrine as part of its main fat-burning stack. Standardized Rauwolscine, which functions like Yohimbine, is effective for an extra energy boost and fat-burner support.
The brain boosters come in the form of Tyrosine but L-Tyrosine isn’t as potent as NALT specially when it comes to crossing the blood-brain-barrier. Choline is also not in good form, Citicoline is the best, but it still provides a brain boost nonetheless. Standardized Alpha-GPC may not be as good as Citicoline but it’s still one great nootropic to have. Standardized Huperzine rounds up their brain boosters and it’s a great ingredient and all but it works more on old guys and not for fresh and youthful bros.
TRANS4ORM rounds it up with a nice supplement staple: Standardized Black Pepper Extract and you know how much we love seeing this in supplements.
In conclusion of the first round, both formulas look like they’re about to tear each other apart for not resembling each other.
However, if we have to pick a winner: LeanMode gets a satisfying victory because it offers a direct hit on fat burners. LeanMode’s lean formula design means fewer but focused ingredients and we approve of it.
Round 1… LeanMode Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Before we start, we like to note how both supplements provided transparency and we applaud them for it. The Best Fat Burner supplements just GOTTA show them doses. Thanks to their transparency, we can easily assess every ingredient and pit the dosages head to head without playing an annoying guessing game.
LeanMode impresses us with four of their five ingredients each getting 500 mg and their only “dud” is running out of room for Green Teat Extract, our #1-ranked Best5 Fat Burner ingredient. We call it a dud because it only has half of the usual dosage we see in other great fat burners but in all honesty, the dosage isn’t that small and being standardized to 60% EGCG makes us cut it A LOT of slack.
We don’t know where to begin with TRANS4ORM. We commend it for hitting great dosages for ingredients such as standardized Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, and Synephrine but almost everything else fell apart after that.
Let’s have a look at Rauwolscine and Black Pepper Extract. Rauwolscine is too puny at 750 mcg, not even one single gram was included. Black Pepper Extract is barely making any noise at 1.25 g and the average dosage is at least 10 g. They lost potential critical mass dosages with powerful standardized ingredients.
It’s a shame since TRANS4ORM had plenty of standardized ingredients to begin with and they mess it up with sloppy dosing. We all prefer a cheap ingredient with good dosage than a premium ingredient in lackluster amounts.
This one’s a no-brainer, LeanMode gets another point for balancing dosage and capsule space.
Round 2… LeanMode Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
When we say quality we refer to a supplement’s use of proper forms, standardized herbs, and premium brands. With that said, LeanMode passed for quality flawlessly. It made use of potent fat-burners, all of which are standardized plus they also used great support ingredients specially when it comes to training and appetite control.
TRANS4ORM mad use of some pretty nice ingredients but they messed up on their Tyrosine and Choline, offering the cheapest and weakest forms. It’s a shame too since these two nootropics could’ve ramped up TRANS4ORM’s brain boosting benefits across the board.
It may have fewer ingredients but the quality of ingredient research done on LeanMode is superior to TRANS4ORM.
Round 3… LeanMode Wins.
Round 4: Price
|1 Bottle (50-day supply)||$19.99||1 Bottle (60-day supply)||$49.99|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.13||Price Per Capsule||$0.41|
|Price Per Serving||$0.39||Price Per Serving||$0.83|
Round 4… LeanMode Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
It’s a landslide victory for LeanMode. If you look at our reviews on LeanMode and TRANS4ORM, you’ll definitely see why the results in today’s battle came out the way they did:
- We’re talking 4.8 (LeanMode) vs. 2.7 (TRANS4ORM) out of 5 stars.
Not even a miracle transformation can bridge that gap.
LeanMode’s NO B.S. approach to a stim-free fat-burner is efficient and effective. TRANS4ORM is ambitious but what’s the use of ambition if you don’t have substance? Simply put, LeanMode wiped the floor with TRANS4ORM.
In the BATTLE OF EVL, LeanMode vs. Trans4orm, the winner is…
