Garcinia Cambogia 1000 mg Review
These days, Garcinia Cambogia is being viewed mostly as a controversial weight loss product.
Lots of people even hate it, shouting that Garcinia is a waste of time and money.
It’s true, 50% of people who tried Garcinia Cambogia for weight loss did fail.
However, it is not because Garcinia was useless, but the people themselves simply didn’t know how to apply it.
This tropical fruit is a good addition to a sufficient weight loss plan.
But it may never become the core of any slimming program.
This brings us to the question:
Does Garcinia Cambogia really work?
Yes, it does.
- If it is Garcinia Cambogia with 1000 mg of the active ingredient.
- If you take up Garcinia Cambogia not as a miracle, but as a tool (otherwise, you won’t lose a single pound with its help).
Now let us talk about this in detail.
How It All Began
Garcinia Cambogia was first introduced by Dr. OZ on his TV show in 2013.
In that show, it was named a new weight loss miracle and a breakthrough.
That announcement created such a buzz that Garcinia immediately flew off the shelves all across the USA.
But what Dr. Oz didn’t tell his audience is that Garcinia is a weight loss supplement, not a core.
He also didn’t mention that:
Garcinia Cambogia doesn’t provide instant results or doesn’t work apart from proper nutrition.
What is Garcinia Cambogia?
Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical fruit that is grown widely in Indonesia. Sometimes in the media it is called the Malabar Tamarind or gummi-gutta. Its shape is similar to a small pumpkin.
This fruit has been used in meals for centuries by the indigenous people of South East Asia.
Garcinia contains a substance called Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). It is an active agent in gummi-gutta.
HCA prevents the production of citrate lyase, an enzyme that produces fat from sugar and carbohydrates that you eat.
Moreover, this weight loss supplement helps reduce appetite by releasing a considerable amount of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that makes you feel happy and satisfied enough to not overeat.
In other words:
Hydroxycitric acid works in two ways:
- Blocking the formation of new fat cells
- Effectively suppressing appetite and creating a feeling of satiety.
However, you cannot eat too much sugar and carbohydrates, specifically, the fast carbohydrates (pasta, wheat bread, white rice and so on).
In this case, Garcinia Cambogia is unable to effectively block fat cell production.
Remember, you cannot starve yourself as it will cause your body to store fats for future. Our body is smart and when it does not get enough necessary nutrients, it goes to a starvation mode so you only gain weight.
If you decide to satisfy your hunger after a long starvation, 100% of the carbs you consume are transformed into fats, not energy.
It’s a fact:
People, who successfully lose weight, do not starve – they just reduce portions and eat every 2-3 hours.
How to Have Success with Garcinia Cambogia
You can successfully lose your stubborn fat in 3 simple steps:
- Create your own diet plan. Find a good nutritionist to help you. Let it be a well-balanced diet, rich in slow carbs, vegetables, proteins and fats.
- Your diet plan is supposed to create a calorie deficit for you.
Let’s say, you typically eat 3000 calories per day and have a sedentary lifestyle.
You must be gaining weight. To start losing weight you have, for instance, to create an 1800 calorie deficit.
This means you need to consume around 1200 calories per day.
You probably wonder how many calories per day you should consume to launch a calorie deficit.
To find it out, please refer to this weight loss calculator.
This tool also tells how much you should eat to maintain your current weight. Note that it gives the approximate numbers.
- Take Garcinia Cambogia with 1000 mg of the active ingredient. 2000 mg of Hydroxycitric acid is the minimum daily dosage required to launch the process of the body fat burn. Therefore, take two capsules per day after a meal.
Consuming Garcinia Cambogia on a daily basis will help you lose circa 3 pounds per week.
It’s a solid result. If you are consistent in your efforts, you can reach your weight loss goal within 6-8 months.
Without Garcinia, it will take you 2-3 times longer.
