    I take GC and love it. I was 30 lbs overweight when I started taking it. I had injured my back , very badly, I quit smoking and went through menopause all around the same time. I couldn't exercise very much because of back pain and my weight just kept increasing. I heard about Garcinia on Dr. OZ and decided to try it after extensive research on the internet. I have lost 16 lbs. my energy level is way up compared to what it was. I take the GC before every meal at least 30 minutes prior, and 2 before bed. I also started taking raspberry ketones with it and that seems to make it work even better. Now it just isn't the GC. I started walking and I walk 2 miles a day at least 3-5 days a week. I watch what I eat 6 days of the week then on my free day I eat the things I normally wouldn't, but I stop when I feel full and don't eat until I can't move. The biggest thing about the GC is it cut my appetite in half. I no longer want to eat everything in sight. It seems to cut inches off more than losing weight. In the last 3 weeks I have lost about 9 inches. I measure. Bust, waist, hips, thighs and upper arms. I get mine from Trusted Nutrients on Amazon. If you read the reviews there is one woman that is just mad at TN because she said they wanted a good review , but most of the reviews are from normal people. I wish you the best and please read up on GC to learn things about it.

    I had ordered 6 months worth of Pure Garcinia Cambogia...have 3 bottles to go and it really never did help me...however it did help with gas atleast for me. I will continue to take it though...the main thing you need to watch your portions and get some exercise and drink your water in order to loose weight...I am past menopause in fact I am a senior and am struggling so. Had joined weight watchers but they are too expensive for someone like me on a fixed income...found this site and it is free...I have been putting in my food daily and tracking my fitness too which helps. Weight loss is a life long challenge.

    32 of 35 people found the following review helpfulThis product is amazing already lost so much weight! By Mariah on November 9, 2013 Amazon Verified Purchase Hey, so I've used amazon for a really long time but i've never wrote a review before, Im writing this because i see a lot of bad reviews over this product and I just wanted to share my experience so far with this item, first of all I'm not fake or being payed to try this, I've suffered with weight and compulsively eating just like probably everyone here has, after failing numerous times at just plain exercise and good eating I chose to use this product, I got it within 4 days with normal shipping, pretty good time, and then i started taking it right away, just 2 pills a day and it comes with 62 pills enough for a full month however I find I do not necessarily need it every meal or day dependent on how hungry i seem at that time. the main thing I love about this product is how much it takes away your appetite and gives you more energy. I do however suggest still somewhat watching what you eat and doing daily exercises but don't worry it could be as simple as walking for just 10 minutes, but remember to take the pill about an hour before a meal, any sooner isn't a big deal you just may still have a large appetite. After just a week I have gone from almost 170 pounds to 159.2. I'm amazed! I was very nervous at first because I truly thought this was a scam, but I now am gaining my confidence back and I couldn't be happier with the results!
