If you're thinking about joining Nutrisystem, see if you can get your hands on one of their chocolate puddings. I'm happy and so is my doctor who was telling me I needed to lose weight. The first month I went with the default menu and selected the meals I liked best for the second and third month. I thought for sure when I started the plan that I would probably have at least one thing to complain about it; however, I was wrong. I am very satisfied with the basic plan. Even the desserts and snacks taste darn good. Nutrisystem says they deliver a simple program with great tasting foods to help you lose weight.
According to some studies in rats, it can inhibit a fat producing enzyme called Citrate Lyase, making it more difficult for the body to produce fat out of carbohydrates (1).
Other rat studies show increased levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin. This could theoretically lead to reduced appetite and cravings (2). There are actually a whole bunch of studies in rats showing that Garcinia Cambogia consistently leads to significant weight loss (3, 4, 5, 6).
However, what works in rats doesnt always work in humans.
