Kati Decker Posted May 22, 2013 Share Posted May 22, 2013 Anyone heard of this? I just saw something over the interwebs about this and thought I'd ask it here. It's a fruit from southeast Asia and supposedly helps with weighloss. I have yet to do any research on it, but Dr Oz (thank you grandma) had it on his program. Here's a quote from the online article, "According to Dr Lindsey (The guest host on the popular Dr Oz show) Garcinia Cambogia Extract works in more than one way, 'The first way is it goes in and causes the body to burn glucose, or sugar, and burn fat, mainly in the liverâ€¦The second way, the most important way, is it slows the release of sugar into the blood stream. So when you don't have sugar building up in the blood stream, you don't have fat building up because sugar turns to fatâ€¦When the two are combined together, you get this synergistic effect that basically burns and blocks and stops fat, but it also is natural and safe.'" It sounds like it essentially does the same thing as we're all currently doing with the Whole30, but the Whole30 has other awesome effects in our bodies. I have a hard time believing there's a magic pill. And if there is one, the side effects make taking it worthless, normally. So when I saw this I was curious if anyone else had seen it, tried it, had an opinion on it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
