Garcinia gummi-gutta is a tropical fruit(a species of Garcinia) native to Indonesia. You can find Garcinia Combogia in Southeast Asia and central Africa. It thrives in tropical forest. It is also common to hear the following names: brindleberry, pot tamarind and malabar tamarind.
The biologically active substance called Hydroxycitric Acid(HCA), can be found naturally in large amounts in the skin of the fruit.
And this is how it works
After a famous cardio-thoracic surgeon promoted the tropical fruit in his TV show, there have been done a lot of studies both on animals and humans, that are claiming that the extract helps the weight loss process.
It helps reduce the appetite and fat production, at least that is what the animal studies claim.
It blocks the fat production enzyme Citrate lyase, which makes it harder for the body to produce fat.
The fruit will increase serotonin, a hormone that will reduce your appetite.
The studies done on animals show that it causes serious weight loss and slimming down of belly fat.
Other possible health benefits
Garcinia cambogia is mainly studied for the purpose of weight loss, but there are other important health benefits that should be considered.
One of them is reducing the bad cholesterol(LDL), reduce triglycerides and raise the HDL(the good cholesterol) levels.
But also there is a need of more studies done on this subject.
Where to order Garcinia Cambogia
If you are from Southeast Asia(or central Africa), you probably can find the fruit at your local food market. It is always good to go for the real thing.
The top selling natural supplement product in Amazon is 100% Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract with almost 6000 product reviews.
But when I read through some of the reviews I realized that they are all fake, and the honest reviews were stating that this product has a lot of side effects and most of the products are not FDA approved.
All the Garcinia Cambogia products are a waste of money!
And after reading through the product reviews, I noticed that this product is worth NOTHING!
I’m not kidding, most of the people who review it have been given a free bottle in exchange for a 5 star review.
And those who try it and have the self-respect are talking about how they have all this side effects(headaches, constipation, lack of energy and I guess waste of money).
What I thought was “ok let’s look at the other Garcinia Cambogia products” and the results were the same, fake “verified” reviews and women with different side effects.
But I want to lose weight, what should I do?
I remember when I friend(girl) of mine asked me for an advice on how to loose weight and I didn’t know because I never had that problem, so I had to look it up, read through some forums and I came across the 4-hour body by Tim Ferris.
4-hour body by Tim Ferris
The book is filled with information on how to lose weight, gain weight, what to eat, how to workout(if you want to), how to sleep properly and even how to have an amazing sex life and many many more. There are more than 50 topics covered in this book.
The diet that Tim talks about in the book is really simple and it may be just as cheap as eating junk food. OK I lied, it may be a little more expensive than the normal junk food, but if you go all in on this one you will not notice any difference because you don’t waste your money on sodas, sugary foods and pastries.
The diet includes a cheat day(every Sunday) and everything you eat that day will help you in the long run.
During the week you should walk around and write everything that you wanted to eat(hot dogs, sugary things, etc) and eat it at the end of the week.
But there is something you should know, after you start seeing results you will be already “addicted” to the nice food that helps you shed the extra pounds on you and you will feel disgusted towards all the things that you liked before.
For all the guys
You should read this book, even if you are fit or over-weight. It will help you build up mass and shed fat simultaneously.
Just a side note, my girl loves me more since I read this book.
Everything that he talks about is from his own experience or from studies done by MDs.
You don’t need better genetics or fake exotic fruits or more discipline. You need immediate results that will help you to continue.
And that’s exactly what 4 hour body delivers.
