I have been desperate to lose weight after having 2 kids, and I’m hearing a lot of success stories with the Garcinia Cambogia weight loss program. Has anyone tried it? Does it really work? Does the garcinia cambogia diet work?

  • To be honest, I’ve never heard of it before !


  • Just found this answer on healthdirect.gov.au:

    “Does Garcina cambogia enable weight loss?
    The research on people suggests it probably does not help people to lose weight or if it does, the effect is very small. It is certainly not a breakthrough, as some of the advertisements might say.

    A recent study into all the research about Garcina cambogia found it had no effect on people’s weight loss at all.”


  • I’ll have to google it. I haven’t heard of it before.


  • I have heard of it, some good some bad, but have never used it myself. Interesting to read the other comments


  • I think it all depends on the individual. As usual, it’s a case of finding what works for you


  • There was a lot of hoopla about this in the US after Dr Oz recommended it, much like other miracle dietary products. There are also many related miracle weight-loss stories online sponsored by the manufacturers usually. I don’t think there are any weight loss miracles out there, it’s a matter of eating as many fresh and homemade foods when you’re hungry and doing enough exercise to get rid of excess calories. It takes time and effort, slow but sure. Here is a link to a Women’s Health article on the potential danger of garcinia:

    and this article about garcinia and other diet pill scams: http://www.womenshealthmag.com/health/womens-health-diet-pills-scam-alert


  • Not sure I’ve heard pros and cons about it.


  • My friend tried it with great success. It takes commitment and a bit of money for the tabs, but she’s had excellent results


  • I’ve never heard of it… I came to read the answers ;)
