Start Off With A Healthy Supplement

Does Garcinia Cambogia Help You Lose Weight After Pregnancy?You will probably remember seeing the Garcinia Cambogia Extract being featured on the Dr Oz Show. He didn’t go into too much detail about the fruit itself and, truth be told, there isn’t that much to say.  It is a fruit that resembles a pumpkin and it is naturally found in India and Asia. Traditionally it is used in curries or as a condiment. Of course, for us, the weight loss benefits are far more interesting and that is what Dr Oz also focused on.

The study referred to in the show had some pretty astounding results. People taking the supplement lost as much as twice or three times the amount that the control group did, though all followed the same diet. This averaged out at around about 5 pounds a month.

Participants reported feeling more energetic and motivated, sleeping better, having less hunger pangs and being in a better frame of mind overall. They took 1500mg of the Garcinia Cambogia Extract every day.

You do need to be careful to choose the right extract though – always look for ones with three ingredients or less; make sure that the HCA content is at least 50% and buy from a reputable company.

There is one caveat here – if you are still breastfeeding, you should not take this supplement at all.breastfeeding

Experts do recommend increasing the amount of exercise that you do to intensify the results. This can be formal or informal – cleaning your house counts, so does shopping and gardening – you never need to set foot into a gym if you don’t want to.

The aim is to get the blood pumping and to build more lean muscle mass.

Eat Smart

Do also look at your daily diet. You pay a fair amount for the supplement, you don’t want to waste that by eating the food that got you into trouble in the first place. It doesn’t need to be anything to major – start by eating protein, a little starch and vegetables with each meal. Have fruit and nuts for snacks in between if you are hungry.

The trick is to eat food that is as close to what nature intended as possible. Go check in your cupboard now and see how many food products in there have more than 5 ingredients. Chances are it is a lot.

Even so-called health foods like fruit juices and yoghurt are problematic because of the quantities of sugar that they contain.

You want to fuel your body as best you can. Start off by switching out the fruit juice for a whole fruit. Did you know that a glass of fruit juice is basically the equivalent of six whole fruits, without the fiber? When last did you try to eat 6 whole oranges or apples?
