INTRO NUMBER ONE: The Dr Phil Effect.
I like the chili better than anything. When we first went on the program we each lost 70 pounds. Each plan features plenty of variety too, so I have never found myself getting bored with their food selections. I have experience with optifast. As men have to consume more calories than women the diet plans for them include an additional meal.
In a Nutshell
Late in 2010 the peer-reviewed Journal of Obesity published a meta-analysis of studies testing the garcinia as a weight loss aid. Of the 23 trials they identified, 12 were methodologically sound enough to include in their analysis. The analysis revealed that some statistically significant weight loss occurred, but the magnitude of the effect is small and the clinical relevance is uncertain.
