Hi Isabel — Thanks for visiting. He wanted to be supportive. Nutrisystem labels snacks as either Power Fuels or Smart Carbs. It will give you a great idea of what their meals and snacks are like, plus it is a very cost-effective way to reach your weight loss goals. I felt good and best of all I was losing weight. Nowadays, I try to stay as close to as possible, and I am usually able to maintain that goal, give or take a pound or two.
A few quality studies have been carried out over the years, starting in 1998 with a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 135 adults over 12 weeks published in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
They found no evidence that hydroxycitric acid, the active ingredient in weight loss products made from garcinia cambogia, produced significant weight loss. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2004 published a systematic review of meta-analyses and clinical trials on dietary supplements for weight loss by complementary medicine researchers at the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth.
None of the over-the-counter weight loss aids worked, including garcinia cambogia.
