INTRO NUMBER TWO: The Billboard Effect.
I reached a very happy goal weight of lbs. I am so proud of you for a mulitide of reasons. But then I said that already, didn't I? Any tips on how you reached this goal would be appreciated! I am a Weight Watchers lifetimer that has gained back and for the past 2 years have been doing WW on and off - again, the weight is still there because I'm not totally doing the program my fault, not WW. Well, that wasn't true really! There IS a difference between a girl's physique and a "matron's".
They found no difference in appetite between groups (8). Overall, I looked at 4 more studies. Two of them showed weight loss of a few pounds over a period of 8 weeks (9, 10), but the other two showed no effect (11, 12).
So… unfortunately, the weight loss effects appear to be both weak and inconsistent. A review published in the Journal of Obesity in 2011 that looked at 12 clinical trials found that Garcinia Cambogia can increase weight loss by about 0.
