Shane, I read that you use 15g of Creatine when you try to gain some weight. Which leads me to my final point: Thanks Andrew, glad you liked the post! Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. As I mention in the article though, Maltodextrin still has a high glycemic index despite the technicality of it being a complex carb. I really did not think I had any. Let me know in the comments below.
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. 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. They also found that gastrointestinal adverse events were twice as likely in the hydroxycitric acid group as in the placebo group.
