I have been desperate to lose weight after having 2 kids, and I’m hearing a lot of success stories with the Garcinia Cambogia weight loss program. Has anyone tried it? Does it really work? Does the garcinia cambogia diet work?

Ask your question

  • I have never even heard of it, but as a general rule, theres no such thing as a miracle diet



  • good luck with finding one. I found diets to be no good, just moderation and exercise will help



  • I don’t know anything about this diet and would be interested myself



  • In order to weight loss to be sustained over a long period of time it should be slow and well managed. i would approach your gp. Also the tried and true cut the sugar and preservatives is a good start



  • U need to know what works with your body. Everyone’s body’s work different



  • Great question, thanks for posting this! I was wondering aswell :)



  • Oh my gosh, I have never heard of this one. It amazes me how many wierd and whacky diets are out there. I really think eating a healthy low fat low sugar diet is the way to go, and don’t include a great deal of meat.



  • Sounds like a scary fad diet.

    Best way to lose weight – stick to real food – if it has more than 5 ingredients don’t eat it – stick to 1200-1500cal per day if you are female.



  • I think it is a life style change for long term weight loss.



  • I seen so much about this diet and I am very sceptical about it! I don’t trust it…another fad! I have a feeling it could possibly act like a laxative! For anyone to loose that amount of weight in the time frames suggested is simply not healthy! I would recommend seeing your GP or a nutritionist if you really want to lose weight.



  • Good luck and I hope you find something that does.



  • I too want to loose weight after having my 2. I have tried fad diets and while the work in the short term the weight comes back on after the diet is finished. As a result I went and saw a dietician who has me on a strict diet but every 2 weeks when i see him he introduces things back into my diet, so the weight is coming off and by the end of it i will have had all food groups introduced back into my diet so with any luck the weight will stay off. I suggest speaking to a dietician. You can usually get 5 free visits to one with a referral from you GP depending on what state you live in.



  • I did some research on it and well some say yes some say know
    I now just breastfeed my newborn baby and run after my toddler all day and since i nurse my newborn i was too scared to use anything except apple cider vinegar which really helps in slowly losing some weight



  • Try ‘Lose Baby Weight’, they have a facebook page and website! Catered to Mums!



  • I have never heard of that diet before but i do know of one diet that i do know that works and that is the Atkins Diet.This diet i have done my self and my sister has done many times. It is the best diet around and the diet all the stars use to lose weight. It can be hard to stick to but you get fast results even with out exercise but if you exercise you will get even faster results.My sister has been heavy all her life up to and past a size 16 and she has gone down to a size 10 with this diet it really works and with in 2 months you lose a significant amount of weight so your not having to diet for 12 months with this diet to see results.
