I first heard of Garcinia Cambogia on Dr. Oz. I decided to look into it and try to find some reviews.
The problem I found was that almost every website I found about Garcinia Cambogia was written by the company trying to sell the supplements.
I couldn’t find many reviews of the product from a non partial person.
I took a risk and decided to spend $39.99 for a 2 month supply. It was called Miracle Garcinia Cambogia. If you are interested it can be found here.
The biggest thing I read that appealed to me was the boost in energy, which is a benefit for me in general. It also has an extract called HCA which acts as an appetite suppressant and increases serotonin, another benefit for emotional eaters like me.
Here is a quote from their website
“The greatest part of Miracle Garcinia Cambogia is it’s a dual action fat buster! It prevents fat from being made and suppresses your appetite. Now you can lose weight without diet and exercise!”
According to the website you can attain great results without having to change your routine.
So for reference my routine consists of walking/jogging 3-4 days a week for at least an hour. I eat a sensible meal 3 times a day with no carbs after lunch. I also have a morning and afternoon snack of fruit, yogurt, hard boiled egg or something healthy. I allow a cheat day and occasional sweets. I try not to swear them off entirely or I find myself craving them more.
I continued that routine for the entire 2 months. I didn’t try to diet or go on a rigorous exercise routine.
I started at 158 pounds and ended at 151.
That was all. Just 7 pounds in 2 months. I was expecting a lot more from this miracle diet supplement. I was hearing these crazy numbers like 20 pounds in a month. I really thought I would drop more than 10 based on all of the information I had gathered.
To be honest I felt a little like I wasted 2 whole months on this. I was doing a better job when I just watched what I ate and worked out a little harder. I have been off of the supplement for a few weeks now and decided to go back to a diet of fewer calories and extra exercise. I went from 151 to 147 in 2 weeks. That is 4 pounds in just 2 weeks.
My advice, just work a little harder. There is no easy fix and you just have to keep trying no matter how many promising advertisements are thrown in our faces. They may seem good, but they rarely ever work.
Good luck and I wish you well to anyone else who is trying to lose weight. It is hard, but I am right there with you. Trying to be a healthier me!!!
