We received a very interesting email a few days ago. As we do not want to disclose the name of the writer, let us call him John.
John came to our website looking for answers for queries regarding Garcinia Cambogia extract (GCE). Well he found answers to most of the queries except one – by when he will be able to lose 30 pounds. John, by the way weighs 250 pounds right now. Here is what we wrote to John and it is also for each and every one who is looking to get answer of such a question.
The answer is – No one can tell you how much time.
Infact if there are Garcinia Cambogia extracts products which claim that you will lose ‘x’ pounds in a month, we recommend that you never buy them. Why we say so? Because they are fraud.
The reasons are simple:
- How much weight one loses depends a lot upon the initial condition of a person. If you weigh 300 pounds losing 20 pounds may not be tough but same 20 pounds may take lot more if you weigh 100 pounds.
- Body acceptance for Garcinia Cambogia extract: We analyzed so many reviews and one thing we found that everyone’s body responds differently to GCE. Some people lost upto 5 pounds per week while others 5 pounds in a month’s time. There are so many others who did not lose even a single pound in a month’s time. Thus there are no guarantees.
- It depends upon your dosage too: When we were reviewing popular Garcinia Cambogia extract brands we found that a few brands provided two types of dosages 1) normal dosage for suppressing appetite and second type (high dosage) for fat burning. More weight lose takes place when one takes a higher dosage of Garcinia Cambogia. Of course be within your limits and do not take more than 3,000 mg per day.
- Your diet plan and physical activities: People who benefited the most from the extract are the people who have also taken care of their diet and indulged in physical activity over and above taking Garcinia Cambogia extract. We know that the extract is sold as an easy ‘do nothing’ solution for weight loss but the truth is cutting down on fats and exercising does wonders along with the extract. Imagine how any extract can work well when one keeps eating high fat fast food full of cheese? Right?
- Extract brands: Some supplements seem to work better than others (see our review section for more details). Thus choose wisely.
So over all for John it is not impossible to lose 30 pounds in a month’s time but we would put 3 months as more realistic time frame. This is is:
- John’s body accepts the extract well
- He also takes care of his diet and do not start eating high fat diet (atleast not more than what he is already eating)
- Do atleast some mild physical activity
Unlike several other websites on Garcinia Cambogia extract we do not believe the extract is ‘one stop solution’ for weight problems but yes, it can play an important part in your overall weight loss program.
