Why I am jumping on the Garcinia Cambogia bandwagon.
Countless positive reviews from both people I know and on the web.
The below list of benefits reported:
Inhibits production of fat.
Increases serotonin levels resulting in less carbohydrate cravings.
Increase in lean muscle mass.
Decrease in fat mass.
Decreased total cholesterol.
Increase HDL cholesterol.
Positive influence on leptin resistance and insulin resistance.
Effect on body is supposed to work up to 2 hours after a meal.
How to take:
Potassium and/or calcium increases absorption.
Take 1,500-3,000mg per day. Maximum short-term up to 6,000mg
Look for a minimum 50% HCA
Take 30 to 60 minutes before eating or it will bind to the meal and will not work.
I decided that it is time for an experiment. Yep, jumping on the Dr. Oz Garcinia Cambogia bandwagon. I am starting with Citrimax form. Two capsules contain 1,500 mg at 50% hydroxycitric acid (HCA).
I am taking 2 capsules 30 minutes to 1 hour before each of my main meals for a total of 4,500 mg per day.
Taking 2 breakfast, 2 lunch, 2 dinner.
