Food has been my drug for a long time. I am going to be very attentive to my body and keep watching myself to try and never be overweight again. Then mid-morning I would have what they call a power fuel and a smart carb, which is some greek yogurt or cottage cheese with fresh fruit. I am an all or nothing person so I was all in with this program and it provided me with the results that kept me motivated to stick with it until I reached my goal and even beyond into maintenance. I always knew that if I would just eat less and move more I would lose weight but I never felt motivated to do it. I hardly ate any of them before. I know that if I do find myself gaining weight I can lose it again.
This could theoretically lead to reduced appetite and cravings (2). There are actually a whole bunch of studies in rats showing that Garcinia Cambogia consistently leads to significant weight loss (3, 4, 5, 6). However, what works in rats doesnt always work in humans.
