The instructions say to take 2 capsules about 30 minutes before eating. I started taking The Vitamin Shoppe’s Garcinia Cambogia Extract at 2 pills, 1 time a day before lunch until I got a feel for how this stuff works. I would take these about an hour after waking up with my coffee. I used to get really bad hunger pangs as soon as my stomach was empty. About 10 minutes after taking them, my hunger pangs are gone and wont show back up for 2-3 hours which is right around lunch time and I would eat normally.
I have been taking The Vitamin Shoppe’s Garcinia Cambogia Extract capsules for 2 weeks straight and I have nothing bad to say about my experience with this product. I have noticed my appetite is suppressed and it feels natural, like I just ate a small meal. I could feel that my brain even recognized that I felt full. With most weight loss products I have tried, they seem to do the opposite. They would make my stomach feel full but my brain was still telling me to eat. Not anymore!! I have a lot more energy. I know that if I were to up the dosage to 2 pills 2 times a day, and become more active, that I will lose a lot more weight than I thought I could lose naturally.
In fact, I didn't think they were doing ANYTHING. I noticed no change in my appetite or energy level. I was convinced that these were a waste of time.
I decided to only take them a half hour before dinner, as I normally don't eat much during the day, anyway. After a few days, I noticed that there were a few times where I couldn't finish my meal... other than that, no change.
At the end of my third week, I noticed my pants are all getting baggier. I didn't see any change in my body, though... must be stretching them out, I figured.
A few days later, my fiance commented that I was losing weight. A couple of hours later, I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in a month, and she said the same thing.
I continued taking my two supplements per day, for another two weeks. Now, my pants were literally falling down over my hips. I finally got on a set of scales... and found that I had lost 16 pounds!
I'm not sure where they went... but, other than the baggy clothes, I haven't noticed ANY change!
After the second day of taking these (as directed), I noticed that my appetite had already decreased. I felt no urge to binge eat or snack while I was bored. I stopped eating when I was full.. which I never do.. in my mind, there's always room for dessert :p
I've noticed that these also give me a bit more energy, which I need, because I often feel a bit too.. relaxed.
So far, I haven't noticed any side-effects and I will definitely be buying these again.
* I maintain a fairly healthy, balanced diet, exercise about 4-6 times a week and drink a good amount of water.
I received this product in my Good Life VoxBox and, upon seeing that it was a weight loss product, researched it online to make sure it was a safe supplement. I gave it a C rating because the research on it had mentioned that although it is a good product for emotional eaters or those wanting to suppress their appetite, a certain brand of it was recalled in 2009 for causing liver problems within a few weeks of use. I tried one pill for the sake of the review and had no trouble with it. It didn't taste like anything gross and it did suppress my appetite for the majority of the day. The benefits of this product are that it suppresses appetite and does not taste horrible, despite the smell of the pills. The only setbacks I see are that it could interact with medications, you have to remember to take it 30 minutes before meals, and then there's the issue of whether it is safe to ingest over an extended period of time. That being said, I would not discount this product without giving it further research.
It isn't easy to control this mindfully but with using Garcinia Cambogia after the end of the second week I began to notice how much it became easier for me to become fuller it is crazy. I am not usually one to stick to weight loss supplements but this is a huge aid in feeling fuller and I skipped some in takes during lunch and dinner the third week and I still felt fuller eating less than half my meals which is remarkable.
I got to try this product through my first vox box and I am so excited to report that I will be repurchasing this item!
My only con to this item is that it took at least 2 weeks to work fully for me and its kind of tedious to remember to take 2 after each meal
So far, I have noticed that taking this product two capsules thirty minutes prior to every meal, will help you greatly reduce your serving consumptions. I even continue to drink my ice coffee and no side effects. I'm continuing my exercise plan and really enjoy the fact that this product may actually naturally help me and my husband shed a few unwanted pounds. The after taste isn't to un-bareable and the capsules are smooth and easy to swallow. This is only my third day but tonight will be the sixth dose I will consume. I don't epect to actually drop weight taking them, but if they help control my portion size that would be excellent. I have a normal excercise regimen so the only area I may lack is shirking my portion size wish us luck = )
