Here I was able to make other friends from a Nutrisystem support group who were reaching for the same goals. People have asked me how do I stick to the diet during holidays or when family decides to go out to eat. I wished to lose more. People think that since you lost a few pounds, you can go back to eating the way you used too. Some of the people I work with picked on me.
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.
Late in 2010 the peer-reviewed Journal of Obesity published a meta-analysis of studies testing the garcinia as a weight loss aid.
