  1. Eugene says:

    I have been on Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia for about a week now and so far have gained 2 lbs and my waist is at the same measurement as when I started. I am taking 4 pills per day (1556 mg total), each one hour before eating. My goal is to convert belly fat to muscle and take at least a half inch off my waist in 3 weeks of taking the pill.

    • Eugene says:

      I am now about 2 weeks into my use of Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia (1556 mg per day). I am down 3 lbs. in weight and have taken a whole inch off my waist. My objective originally was to take a half inch off my waist in 3 weeks. I still have one week to go and will let you know where I am after the full trial period.

      • Eugene says:

        I have been on Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia (1556 mg. per day) 1 pill 4 times a day (one hour before meals) for 18 days now. Ready to enter a New Year and I am down 5 lbs. in weight and have taken an inch and a half off my waist (3 times my goal) with 3 days still to go.

        • Eugene says:

          Well it is 3 weeks now on Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia (1556 mg per day). Taking 4 pills a day (1 pill, 1 hour before each meal). I am down 6 lbs. and I have trimmed 2 whole inches off my waist. My original goal was to take a half inch of belly fat off my waist, but I have exceeded the goal by 400%. I will be discontinuing the product and hope that I keep the inches off. It could be difficult as I am a chocoholic and a buffet junkie. Kept clean for 2 months on a weight maintenance diet, but fell off the wagon during the Holidays. Now I will attempt to maintain my progress (without taking the pills).

          • Jessica R says:

            Hi, I was just wondering if you drastically changed your diet to get these results? I started these because it said that better food choices would achieve better results, but even if you didnt change your food choices, that it would still help.

          • Eugene says:

            For two months before taking this product I was on a weight maintenance diet of 2000 calories per day. During the Holidays when I started this product I fell off the wagon: stuffed myself at a buffet and bought 5 lbs. of chocolate (eating some almost every night). I also had some of my favorites like Black Forest Cake, Gingerbread Cup Cake and Pumpkin Cheesecake. If you eat a weight maintenance diet or a low calorie diet, you probably will do better.

          • Eugene says:

            Well, I went off Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia one week ago. I am now back up 3lbs., but my waist remains the same, no inches came back. I admit I have not been eating as I should. I hit a buffet this past week and have been eating chocolate and indulged in some Pumpkin Cheesecake that was leftover from the Holidays. If I put on any belly fat I will go back to the GC and see if it melts away again.

        • CAROL says:

          I bought this same product at Walmart on the shelf this weekend…directions or instructions ..say: take 4 caplets -3 times a day…an hour before each meal.
          Eugene,,,check ur directions again.

          • Eugene says:

            I have been off Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia for 2 weeks now. I have gained back 5 lbs., but my waist is still the same, so I am not adding belly fat, even though I am off the GC and I am not staying on a particular diet.

          • Angela says:

            I bought the same at walmart!!! My question is the same is yours let me know if you get an answer

          • joseph says:

            I bought the twin pack of Garcinia Cambogia at walmart along with green coffee bean.My results have been nothing short of Amazing. I did wear a size 40 inch waist however after 3 months of taking both I now wear a size 34 inch jean.There are fillers in this product but it also contains exactly the right amount of hca” so you will or should get great results.Also I DID NOT exercise or change my diet in any way.People now see me and do a double take look just to make sure its me thats how good this product is.It also is very affordable at under 10 dollars for 2 bottles and 4 tablets of the GC three times a day.My opinion forget about the mirror if your same clothes dont fit then continue on that path you will reach your goal.I have and its been no pun intended a piece of cake.

          • Jacklyn says:

            Are you getting go results?

        • mari says:

          It is IMPOSSIBLE to convert fat into muscle….do your research

          • Amanda says:

            It doesn’t say that it “turns fat into muscle.” It says that it helps you BURN FAT! Do YOUR research……

          • Amanda says:

            I have been taking it for 3 weeks (4 pills 3 X’s per day, as directed) & I’ve lost 11 pounds in 3 weeks. I would say that it’s VERY effective when taken correctly…….

    • kim says:

      It says to take 4 pills 3 x a day

    • Brandie says:

      You may not have had success because the directions are to take 4 pills 1 hour before each meal which would be 12 pills a day. Not 1 pill 1 hour before each meal. That would only be 4 a day which isn’t near enough.

    • To many scams says:

      This brand has fillers, exactly what Dr. Oz said to avoid. Look for pure GC Extract and NO fillers or binders. So many scams out there it’s hard to find one, read the reviews and if they are constantly talking about great customer service…let it be a red flag! When I do find a good brand I will come back to post it, I wish Dr.Oz could have given us a few to choose from but I’m sure that could be a potential liability for him. Good luck!!

      • Loretta says:

        What fillers? Nothing is 100% I was told to make sure it had at least 60% of HCA and it does. So what’s the issue?

    • sue says:

      you are supposed to take 4 pills before EVERY meal ~ maybe that’s why it’s not working!!!!

    • Angela says:

      The directions say take 4 pills three times a day for a total go 4667 mg per day. Not one three times. This could be why you didn’t get results.

  2. missy says:

    Eugene, you are supposed to take 4 pills, three times per day.. total 12 pills.

    • Eugene says:

      Since all the studies say to take no more than 3000 mg per day and no more than 1500 mg per day without consulting your doctor, I feel I can ignore the recommendations on the bottle, as it may only be to sell more of their product. Besides, the study that was referred to on Doctor Oz was 1500 mg per day. Although some people have had good results from a lower dose of Garcinia Cambogia than the 1500 mg. I have consulted with my physician and do not want to risk taking a higher dose. I am already taking 22 pills per day, which includes a number of prescribed medications. They claim on the bottle that you should take 12 pills per day, but at that rate the two bottles would only last 7 days total. Also, if it really takes that much of their product to be effective, I would doubt that their product has the amount of GC they claim per pill and/or the percentage of HCA they claim. Since there are no reviews or studies of people using this particular product, I am trying it for 3 weeks at the accepted dosage and not at the their recommended dosage.

      • Christen says:

        I agree.! I’m not taking 12 pills A day.! 4 day will help me with exercise and plenty of WATER.!!

      • Jacklyn says:

        That’s a lie it says on Dr.oz at least 3000mg a day

      • msfitness says:

        Eugene, and those of you who are too lazy to wirk out!Stop eating at the buffets, and all the junk food. Get off your butt go walking, and hit the gym!.Garcinia cambosia can only do so much.
        I got on it, been on it 1 week, work out 5 days per week. I needed a boost.
        I’ve already lost 5lbs.1 inch off my waste. 1 week!! I don’t starve myself, But I make the correct eating habits.

    • gail says:

      this is what they told me at the counter. I am reaally confuse. Do we take 4 caplets a meal or 4 caplets a day?

  3. Jean says:

    Hello this is for Eugene: Hello you are not following the directions on the bottle. You are to take four (4) of the pills three (3) times a day. You take four pills one hour prior to your meal. You do this per the instructions three (3) times a day. If you are not going to follow the directions on the product bottle, then your review cannot be respected. I just started this product today and will keep you posted on how it works for me . . . following the directions that are listed on the bottle.

    • Eugene says:

      I am very interested to hear your results with the increased dosage. Unfortunately, I must go with my doctors recommendations and the recommendations by Dr. Oz and stick with the 1500 mg per day. I wonder if higher dosages will result in better results, but so far from the studies I’ve seen it depends on the individual, their food consumption and daily routine. Also, it seems that the results will stop after continuous use for more than 3 months, no matter what the dosage.

      • Sandi says:

        I have been on it for 3 weeks lost 5 lbs and just under 1 inch on waistline. I have to say I read it wrong and was taking one pill 15 min. prior to eating 2 or 3 times a day since I am not a lunch person. I am happy with what is working for me. No sweets at all.

      • Angela says:

        Dr Oz isn’t a second opinion. He doesn’t always get it right. It’s from the earth so the directed dosage won’t hurt you.

        • amber says:

          Angela as a nurse i just want to say something. Just because something is “from the earth” or all natural does not mean it can not hurt you. You can over dose on any thing. Will an over does of this stuff kill you… not likely but that is not to say there could be harmful side effects. For example taking to much vitamin c is not going to kill you ….. however you could experience the unpleasantness of nausea diarrhea and stomach cramps

    • Tom says:

      Jean, would be very interested to see your results after two weeks – by 11 January

    • Amanda says:

      If you take the 4 pills, 3 X’s a day it works like a charm!!!!! I’ve been taking it for only 3 weeks & have lost 11 pounds!! I LOVE IT!!!!! Good luck to all!!!!! ;-

  4. Monique says:

    @Jean- Why wouldn’t Eugene’s information regarding this product and his experiences be just as respected as yours? He has disclosed the dosing he is using as well as his thought process as to why he has chosen to make the dose adjustment. If he achieves great results with less supplement, well then, good for him! In all actuality, having two simultaneous ‘experiments’ with different, known doses, will be exciting to hear who achieves the greatest benefits. Yeah! I hope to hear your success stories! I’ve been struggling with the decision to try or not. Both of your experiences are welcomed.

  5. Georgia says:

    So you really take 12 pills a day that’s seem alike a lot 4 pills 3 times a day is that really right

  6. Dawn says:

    I’m getting ready to start the ultimate Garcinia Cambogia tomorrow, it said to watch out for fakes, so I was just wondering if anyone had any problems or side affects with this brand, good luck to everyone, Happy New Year and I hope this works!!!

  7. Shaneen says:

    Hello everyone, I plan on starting this product tomorrow. I only plan to taken 1 pill before each meal also. I’ll let you know how my result are

  8. Christina says:

    I’m using phytogenix a right now but haven’t been working out because of injuries, is this a good brand?

  9. john says:

    i’ve been taking phytogenix for 3 days . i only take one caplet before each meal. iseems that im down about a pound. the thing i really noticed was that it surpresses the apetite

  10. Denise says:

    I am taking 3 1/2 pills at breakfast as I eat 2 egg whites, 1 Sardine, 2 slices dry whole wheat toast. I fry egg whites in 100% olive oil.
    I take 4 at dinner and if I have a late night snack. I don’t eat lunch. I eat a late breakfast instead.
    My evening meal I eat whatever I want. And as much as I want. I just make sure I am finished eating within an hour or 2 hours after taking the 4 pills. I saw that on Dr. Oz. If you have not watched his show about Garcinia Cambogia you should. It is very helpful.
    I have been on these from Wal-Mart for 8 days and have lost 3.2 lb.
    I have an under active thyroid, high blood press., diabetic taking metformin, and I am over 40 lb. over weight. I have not problem at all with the pills. I started out taking less than the bottle said and it made me very hungry all of the time. Once I started the 3 1/2 – 4
    before meals I am fine. I don’t even have a late night snack which is my great down fall as I am a night person and stay up until about 2-3am.
    I do take blood pres. medication too as well as thyroid medication.
    And a full adult aspirin daily.
    I take my thyroid medication early while in bed. Hours before I take this pill.
    I take the phytogenix first thing when I get up with 8oz. water
    I eat 1 hour later.
    After eating I take my other medications.
    I do this with my evening meal as well. And I have had no problems at all. As they say; it is a fruit.
    I have not been feeling well due to very bad head cold. Just sitting a computer for the whole week. I do not work and I am not very active during the winter living in Kansas with cold temps and snow.
    I will come back and let everyone know in a week and lets see how I have done.

  11. Denise says:

    I wanted to ad that I am female, 57 years old and I LOVE food. I eat cheese, chips, fried meats, gravy, and lots of carbs. And so far this is working. I did write an extended post. I just wanted to ad this info.

    • Terri says:

      I’m with you Denise…about loving food! I bought this at walmart four days ago and take it as per the instructions on the bottle(4 caplets 3x per day 60 minutes before meals) and find that it is one of the few products that suppresses my appetite, including my desire to munch at night. I went to get more at walmart today and sadly it was out of stock.

  12. Melisa says:

    Hi. I am a pharmacist and just began taking this product after much research. I would like to clarify “safe & effective dosing.” Dietary supplements are not regulated by the FDA however they are monitored by the FDA to ensure they follow good housekeeping manufacturing requirements. I did pull a couple of studies on HCA which the FDA did review before I started this product. The FDA did determine that a safe maximum daily dose of pure HCA is 2800 mg without adverse effects. The confusion comes in the fact that this product is Garcinia Cambogia BUT HCA is the active ingredient that’s doing all the work. The label says four caplets equals 1556 mg of Garcinia Cambogia but you have to take that x 60% to get the active ingredient daily dose of HCA (what’s doing the work to help you lose weight.). So here is the breakdown of why the directions say 4 caplets three times daily. 4 caplets = 1556mg Garcinia Cambogia x 60% = 933.6mg of pure HCA per dose x three doses daily = 933.6 mg x 3 doses = 2800mg HCA daily – right where clinical reviews say you can take. I hope this was helpful & keep up the good weight loss fight.

    • mike says:

      Thank you. That clarifies things and put my concerns to rest. I have another concern though. I read that this substance is toxic and can cause testicular atrophy.

    • Eugene says:

      Wow! Why don’t they mention this fact on all of the Garcinia Cambogia products, which rang from 100 mg. per servicing to 1556 mg. per serving. I have read that people who want to lose a small amount of weight may get results from a lower dose, but those who need to lose a substantial amount of weight may need a larger dose. Either way, they should consult a physician before increasing the dosage.
      My doctor had me on a low calorie, low fat, low cholesterol diet before I even started taking Garcinia Cambogia. I lost a lot of weight, but still had a lot of belly fat. Taking products with Garcinia Cambogia I lost 3 inches off my waste in 5 weeks. I am now not dieting anymore and hope I am able to keep the weight and inches off.
      Look forward to hearing your results and recommendations.

    • lori says:

      im taking same product but it says 2 pills 3 times a day do not exceed 6 pills a day. Now I don’t know what amount I should be taking

    • dee says:

      Thanx for that information. I was debating on the 4 pills. Just wanted to make sure and ur info was very helpful.. I only got a lil to lose jist winter weight thought 4 pills was alot but with ur information helped me understand.. Thanx

    • passion says:

      “Thanks Melisa…VERY HELPFUL.!

    • Chalunda says:

      Thanks so much breaking that down for us. So many people posting here have been back and forth about the dosages.

  13. Marie says:

    I just bought Phytogenix lab Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia from Walmart and the package has 4667 mg per day and 60% HCA. the directions say 4 caplets 3 times a day. but all the comments say they are taking 1556mg. So now I’m wondering if I should only take 2 pills before meals. do any of your products have this same labeling?

    • Angie says:

      I have the exact same product , and it say’s to take 2 pills 1 hour before meals 3 times a day ! DO not exceed 6 pills a day ! this is on my label.
      So im wondering the same thing here .

  14. alice lopez says:

    I just bought Phytogenix Utimate Garcinia Cambogia from Walmart. I am 45 lbs over-weight. I am not taking any pres medication. I am new to this new brand, so I hope it has no side effects like dizziness or headaches like the other diet pills. I will be back here to let you know how I have done.

  15. Tanya says:

    I purchased my pills from Walmart last Friday so only been taking tj is for 3 days. I was not taking them correctly until this morning. 4 three times a day. Will be posting my results

  16. Chelle says:

    I just started gc Friday and lost two pounds from doing this. I do exercise regularly on my wii u fitness since starting . I just bought the walmart version to see how they may vary from my vitamin shoppe gc. I’ll keep you all posted. Happy weight loss to you all. :)

  17. Maddy says:

    I am starting this program tomorrow and I found these comments very helpful. I was worrying about the safety of the products but I feel better now! I also have Green Coffee Bean as well but I am concerned about taking both of these at the same time. If anyone can provide information on if this is safe, please let me know!

    • joseph says:

      As far as the Green Coffee Bean it was suggested to take it with the Garcinia Cambogia.It was or is like a secondary way of flushing your system of the toxins and build up on the walls of the intestines and such to boost the potential on losing the weight due to constipation and irregular bowel movements. I took it my self and continue to take it however for the first 2 months I really stayed in the bathroom which was a good thing.The Green Coffee Bean really compliments your total weight loss I think and I believe contributed to me losing 6 inches in my waist. Both products are safe together or have been for me I am a veteran and i am housebound due to injuries sustained in service so I gained alot of weight of course being inside but with GC and GCB I feel like I have been reborn.I’m over 56 lbs now in 3months I will update periodically as I achieve more weight loss.

  18. Andrea says:

    I purchased these pills from walmart. Im on my second week and I have gained wieght. Im using these pills along with a 4.25 mi run every day, and other excerises at the gym. What is going on? Could these be fake? I was so excited when i found them at the store and now i am so disappointed!!

    • Ocean Dennis says:

      You are gaining muscle and losing fat from workingout,muscle weighs more than fat you’re probably losing inches which is better

  19. Andrea says:

    Im on my 2nd week. I excersise 2 hours a day. I have not seen any improvement, just wieght gain, Also purchased it at walmart. Do u think this really works?

  20. Andrea says:

    I take 4, 3 x a day. I want to lose 20lbs. Calorie intake is about 1500. :( Plus i burn alot at the gym

    • Eugene says:

      Hi Andrea,
      I gained 2 pounds during the first week, but I was only taking 4 pills per day, instead of the 12 pills recommended on the bottle. After 3 weeks I had lost 6 lbs. and 2 inches on my waist, and I was taking in much more than the 1500 calories. At the 1500 calories per day plus exercise, even without the 12 pills per day, you should be loosing weight. I would check with my doctor and see why you are gaining weight. It could be water retention or something else. I saw my doctor to evaluate my taking the product as I was already taking 22 pills per day, including, heart, arthritis, and prostate medications.

  21. Andrea says:

    Im starting to think the garcinia from walmart is fake. My energy level is really low during the day until i hit the gym after work. Also did a little research and saw another comment from someone stating they have also gained wieght from this product. Im still using it. It is 2 1/2 weeks and im hoping to see a change by the 3rd week. I’ll let u know

  22. Gracie says:

    I have been struggling to lose weight for the past 8+ years. Since I started menopause, I am now 56. So with all the hype I thought I would try this new product along with my low card diet. I’ve been taking this product I purchased from Walmart. So I wanted to report that I had a couple of days of slight headache and a bit of a queasy tummy but after the third day I only feel a lack of appetite. I will take the pills as directed until the bottle is gone and then decide what kind of review I can give it. At the directions rate I have a weeks trial period. I will let you know how it goes. Good Luck to all of you.

    • Betsy says:

      This is my second day and I have a headache, nausea and vomiting. I am taking 4 tablets three times a day as stated on the box.

  23. Gracie says:

    I guess I should add due to the fact I broke both my feet awhile back I am not up to alot of exercise, but at least I can get around on my own really well. It is also a well know fact stress can be a big deterrent with weight loss. Unlike some people who will lose weight under stress. So keep that in mind if you are that type. I know I am so I have been working on my stress levels with things other than exercise.

  24. Gracie says:

    I really appreciate Melisa’s passing on her research. Can she clarify what HCA is? And how it works in the equation? Thank you

  25. Andrea says:

    HCA stands for Hydroxycitric Acid. A chemical that helps you lose wieght

  26. MC says:

    I have been using this product for two weeks. I have also been using colon clear along with it. I have lost 8 pounds and 1 inch off my mid section. I think for me the combination of the two are working really well. Week one I did the GC by itself and lost 2 pounds. Week two, I added the colon clear and lost 6 pounds. I have a long way to go, as I have quite a bit of weight to lose. That being said, my appetite is suppressed and I have been able to stick to a diet ranging from 1200 – 1500 calories per day. I am also walking on my treadmill for about 30 minutes per day.

  27. Susy says:

    HI ! I Saw this pruduct at HEB and I stared taking it 4day ago. I need to lose 60 pounds and I have lost 4 pouns since I stared. I take 4 pills before breakfast and 4 before dinner I do not take 12. My appetite is suppressed and helps me to focus in eating healthy food. I also drink green tea with lime twice a day, drink a lot of water and just walking 20 minutes a day for now. So far ,I recommend it.

  28. Kelly says:

    I started a week ago today, started with 3 pills 3x a day because I read the bottle wrong. Then two days ago I was looking at it and realized I should be taking 4 pills 3x a day. I haven’t gotten to the gym yet so no exercise, I only cut out all sweets which I shouldn’t have anyway. I lost 5 lbs so far. My goal is 30. I have also been sleeping better at night which is a plus. I am going to continue and see what happens at the end of week two. Good luck to everyone!

  29. Treece says:

    I purchased My GC yesterday!..I am really excited about getting started on it, I am starting tomorrow, and Along with eating healthier and exercise..My goal is to lose 30 pounds..I hope this works!!!…:)

  30. gqroll says:

    I really like reading reviews, so I want to contribute. I am 48 y/o fem, never had a weight problem up until last year – I gained 12 lbs in less than a year. I have not been able to lose a lbs, even with exercise, so I will give this a try and let you know.

  31. Dana says:

    I bought this brand at Walmart a week ago., I’ve been taking the product as directed 4 pills x 3 a day one hour before meals. I’ve also have changed my diet to a low calorie diet., The pills have suppressed my appeitite., so I am eating less. I have no desire to eat more. Which is good. I also started an excercise routine as well. One thing I have noticed is I urinate a lot and I feel tired. I’m also starting to feel agitated. I don’t particularly like these side affects. So I’m going to go with Colon Cleasne and keep up with the diet and exercise. Just wanted to share my experience with this brand of Garcina. Good luck to everyone else.

  32. Chance says:

    I just purchased this from Wal Mart this morning. I read somewhere it will not work if it has calcium in it. I bought it anyway to try it. Wondering if anyone else read or knows anything about the added calcium?

    • kim says:

      Calcium blocks some absorption of the pill.

    • Chris D says:

      I got the “ultimate garcinia cambrosia” and will be testing it out along with you guys. 15 minutes of activity a day, no dieting and maintaining weight currently.
      I am looking up anything i can find about this and think this is worth a look: (mind they are advertising but has some info that may be worhty note)
      youtube.com/watch?v=jme9oq_ULbs
      unless I totally missheard, potasium and calcium help break the pill down to be effective. The walmart “ultimate garcinia cambogia” doesnt seem to contain these listed in the ingrediants but maybe as biproducts of the other added ingrediants, but also contains some stuff that concerns me. I looked these up on wikipedia and other sites to see what they are as it is an interesting read what I(we) am(are) putting in me(us).

      • Eugene says:

        Hi Chris,
        I have been on DietWorks Garcinia Cambogia for 3 weeks now. It has both the Potassium and Calcium that you refer to. So far I am down 8 lbs. and have taken an inch off my waist.

        • Chris D says:

          Hi Eugene, Dietworks brand may contain but they aren’t listed in the ingrediants on the bottles I bought. I am not sure this is what we are looking for, Dicalcium phosphate. No potasium in this product (again it is walmart bought wellnx life science brand – Ulimate garcinia cambogia). It does contain macrogol for the coating, a nice laxitive additive.

          1st week no loss and actually worked out shovelling and playing outside and taking in more water than pop. No gain either and I still feel hungry every 2-4 hours I am awake so far. (i eat small meals/snacks usually)

          thanks for your input Eugene and glad it is doing something for you.

          Chris D

          • Eugene says:

            Hi Chris,
            I think you misunderstood me. I agree Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia does not have Calcium or Potassium listed as ingredients. DietWorks Garcinia Cambogia has them listed on both the back of the bottle and the box. Not a huge amount, but I also eat a lot of foods that have them Calcium an Potassium in them. I know that Walmart bought the E

        March 22 a good while after starting this. I have been workign out actually more than in february, i have been eating a little healthier but not less. I ask myself if I am really hungry before I eat anything. I have lost at least 2 pounds since last month. Though I dont weigh myself every day, I did weigh myself for a couple days and took an average. I am thinking this product didnt really work for me. Perhaps the drinking water before the meal will help eat less and maybe contribute to meal proportioning since I get fuller faster.(nice mental trick) Well it is off to putting in time for working out and eating better for me.. no shortcuts… Good luck and God speed to everyone else.

    • Rachel says:

      The product from Walmart does not contain calcium..i am starting today.

  33. kim says:

    I lost 4 lbs in three weeks. So i switched Walmarts brand yesterday. Remember to weigh yourself at the same time every day. You gain aprox four to 3 pounds more from morning to evening.

  34. KonaGeri says:

    Aloha Susy! I bought my 2pk of the GC at Walmart today. I’m excited cause I’ve done the research and now I’m ready! I cannot exercise due to permanent lower back injury. I will be following the dose directed on the label and with a reduced calorie intake. I will be doing this diet for 1 month due to the different results from many people who have tried GC. I need to lose 70lbs. I’ll keep everyone posted from day 1 which will be Jan 27, 2014. I will post my starting weight and inches for my waist, thereafter I will update every Monday. Please wish me the strength to finish this trial period, I need the results to help ease some of the pain from my back. Talk to you all again on Jan 27,2014!

  35. Ruby says:

    I started my GC now two weeks, and yes I gain a pound, but the second week, I lost 3lbs, and 2 inches from my waist, I feel better, I eat less, and I love food, I’am 61, with arthritis in the knees, but I walk my dog three times a day, my form of exercise, I purchased my supplements from Walmart as well, planning to take them for one month, and I will update.

  36. Erikaor says:

    i started these pills last Saturday, January 25th…i hope they really work, i need to loose 10 kgs. i’ll tell you next week the results :) Good luck!!

  37. Sydni says:

    I just bought this product literally an hour ago. I maintain a some what healthy life style by eating good and going to the gym regularly, but i wanted to try this and see if it worked. The only thing I’m worried about is getting some sort of long term side effect. Is anyone noticing any problems before I start this pill? By the way, i’m 18 yrs old. i need to lose weight because i’m pre diabetic and honestly i’m desperate.

    • wanda says:

      I am starting this diet in the morning I sure hope it works .I saw a video of me and my grandson I looked awful I need to lose 60 pounds so I can feel better about my self hope it works I will let you know soon 4 pills 1 hour before meals 3 times a day with water 8oz here goes

  38. kim says:

    Made me gain 5 pounds! Boo ;(-

    • Eugene says:

      Hi Kim,
      Walmart does not have their own brand of Garcinia Cambogia, but handle several different brands by different manufacturers. So far I have tried two of the five brands I found at Walmart and another one that I found at Costco. I am very interested to know what brand you bought at Walmart and how many pills you were taking each day? Also were you taking them a certain amount of time before each meal or with your meals. How long did you try the pills: for one week, two weeks or more? Like I said, I am on my third product with Garcinia Cambogia right now, and have had varied results from each product. So I would be very interested in more detail on your experiences.

  39. Diane says:

    I have beenon these same pills also. almost finished my second bottle and have not lost any weight.

    • Eugene says:

      Hi Diane,
      How many pills are you taking each day and did you take them a certain amount of time before each meal? How long have you been taken the product? Is there a set amount of weight that you want to lose or do you just want to turn fat into muscle? I am interested as I have already finished taking this product (Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia)and am interested in others experiences.

  40. Robin says:

    I can’t help but wonder how much of the appetite suppression is due to drinking a full glass of water before meals….

    That said, I just took my first dose, so I’ll post back if I have any success with the product.

  41. Rocsi R says:

    I just bought GC from Wal Mart and trying it I will post results soon!

  42. Tiffany says:

    So I just bought this from Walmart last night and about to take my first dose. I only eat Breakfast and Dinner and will only be taking 2 pills before each meal. I have been on a low cal/low carb diet now for 5 weeks and have plateaued at the 10-11lbs mark for almost 3wks. Getting married in a few months and have 10 more to go before 1st dress fitting 4.12.14. Since calcium is not good, is it bad that in the morning I drink creamer in my coffee or will this not matter?

    • Eugene says:

      Hi Tiffany,
      You might want to read response number 12 on January 12 by Pharmacist Melisa. Also you might want to read:
      Garcinia Cambogia: How to Optimize Effects
      Harry G. Preuss MD, MACN, CNS
      and Dallas Clouatre, PhD
      It is probably good to have some calcium in your diet, but more potassium will optimize the effects of the supplement. The important thing is to take the pills at least a half hour before eating anything, and preferable an hour before. 

  43. Michael says:

    This makes absolutely no sense at all. Out of curiosity, I just purchased this today. A “2-bottle bonus pack’. Each bottle has 42 caplets. If I take the recommended dosage on the bottles (4 caplets, 3 times per day), that’s 12 pills per day. That means I have enough of this stuff for 7 days. I’m supposed to lose weight in 7 days? Any diet or reduction in calories will make a person lose weight in 7 days.

    This is a rip-off.

    • lori says:

      I was 198 pounds and changed my eating habits with out diets pills or exercise im now at 180 but it seems im maintain this weight and not losing so I started the pills my box said 2 pills three times a day so Im going to stick to that amount and give it one month I wont weigh my self for 30 days and see im also drinking green tea with lemon 3 times a day .I don’t eat junk or sugar or salt .I fell for the hype cause I love dr.oz .lol hopefully he wont let me down I think maybe I have to find different brand .

  44. Fernando says:

    It worked for me! I lost 12 pounds in two weeks, went from 198 to 186 lbs.
    I bought the 2pk w 42 caplets each and lasted for a week. The first three days I lost 2 pounds per day!! Yes, I reduced my food intake, during that week avoiding snacks between meals and no junk food, no exercise either. I got a second 2pk for the second week and lost about 1 pound per day for a few more days, then I got stuck on 186 lbs.
    I’ll change GC for green tea and chromium for the next two weeks, I’m aiming to Loose another 7-8 lbs to get to 178. (My ideal weight is 175) So, hopefuly another two weeks of GC will get me there. Good luck to all!

  45. cara says:

    I’ve seen where u should use a cleanser with the pill for better results. I will be starting these pills this week I will keep u pisted if I lose more weight with the cleanser and pills together.

  46. kristin says:

    I just bought the 2 bottle pack from Walmart so I can’t say of they work or not yet.
    My dilemma is about breakfast. Breakfast is supposed to be eaten within a half hour or so of when you wake up…should I be setting an alarm an hour before I’m going to actually get up just to take these pills??
    I’m an RN and I have to get up at 3:15am to be to work at 5–I don’t really want to have to wake up an extra hour earlier to take pills.

  47. Christen says:

    Okay I just got the Walmart 2-pk, 42 tablets each,, and me taking 12 pills is to much.
    But I see where some people lose weight just by taking 2 pills breakfast and before dinner. I’m wondering if I do 2 pills per meal will it help.? It will work on certain people, So I’m going to give it a try… Comment your results too please :)

  48. Janine says:

    Has anyone used the walmart ultimate GC & yacón syrup (yacón thin from walmart? I heard that this will help boost the weight loss.

  49. Rose says:

    Just purchased these pills at my local walmart I really hope they work my ultimate goal is to lose 70lb in 4 months i am kind of scared to take them cause of all negative things I been reading regarding the walmart brand please help me do these really work

    • Eugene says:

      Hi Rose,
      Many people in these reviews and others have referred to the Walmart Brand. Walmart does not yet have their own brand of Garcinia Cambogia. At present, the Walmart near where I live handles 5 different brands of supplements that contain Garcinia Cambogia. So far I have tried two of them “Weight Loss 4″ by Doctor’s Select and “Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia” by Phytogenix Laboratories. I am now trying a third brand that I found at Costco, call “DietWorks Garcinia Cambogia.”

  50. Sarah S says:

    I bought this recently and haven’t taken them yet. My box is the 2 pack from walmart. it does say 4pills 1 hr before each meal. (3 times a day) ok so yes 12 pills per day basically. well i do agree with some above comments. seems like too much pills in one day. plus i do take a birth control pill every morning. I am 5′ 4″ and 140pounds i wonder if i should stick to the directions on my box, or just take 2 pills for every meal instead of 4. what do you think? i dont want to mess up.

    • Sarah S says:

      it was the phytogenix brand that i bought by the way.

      • Eugene says:

        I have tried 3 brands so far. Two that I bought at Walmart and one that I bought at Costco. I have determined that, by reading the reviews, that it depends on the individual, their daily diet, and their exercise, how much of the product they need to have a positive effect. From a financial viewpoint, if you were to take the 12 pills recommended per day, you would use up the two bottles you bought in only a week. At that rate, a 10 week supply (or 20 bottles) would cost you about $100. I just purchased DietWorks Garcinia Cambogia and at the recommended dosage on the bottle, a 10 week supply cost me only $14.99 plus tax.

  51. Mandy says:

    I have been using the Phytogenix Utimate Garcinia Cambogia from Walmart along with Phytogenix Green Coffee Bean for about 3 weeks now. I have lost 13 lbs and went from a size 17 pants to a 12. I am going to stop the coffee bean and continue with the GC by itself. Hoping it works.

    • May says:

      Hi mandy, just wondering what dosage you took for the coffee Bean extract. Did you take both the coffee Bean and GC before you each mail? How many pills total per day?

  52. Itsjustme says:

    I’m only 17 and I am 240 pounds. I was taking them for about a week or two and then I sprained my ankle so I can’t really do my running or anything for 4-6 weeks. I stopped taking them for 4 days an have already gained 5 pounds :( this is not okay. Spring break is coming up soon and were going to Florida and I want to be able to look decent in a bathing suit. I need help because I don’t know what to do. I want to loose a lot of weight before I go. Please help!!

    • Dana says:

      Hi Itsjustme, I know what your going through and it feels not great! I think if you want faster weight loss than get a different brand. From what Dr OZ said and everything I have read you need a brand that has 60% HCA and no added stuff like Calcium as it can block it and Potassium is good to have. Along with the green coffee bean you should still loose while your ankle heals, it’s got to be better than putting weight on! Right? Good Luck and get better soon!

  53. Elizabeth says:

    First I want to thank everyone for your opinions, updates, and reviews, they were so helpful to me. I decided to try both the Garcinia Cambogia and Coffee Bean Extract by Phytogenix. I’m starting them both on Monday, March 3rd as part of a new weight loss plan that I am beginning. I will update my progress weekly so that anyone looking to try it can get another opinion. I am a 41 y/o female with hypothyroid disease (it has been pretty difficult for me to lose weight). Recently I have been treated and my thyroid function is now normal so I think I will have a better chance. My weight loss plan is as follows: Exercise 3x a week doing the 3 mile Walk Away The Pounds workout with the 2lb weights (45 minutes), use My Fitness Pal to track my calories @ 1200 per day (lots of fruits, lean protein, and whole grains), and take both of these supplements. I am 5′ 5″ and currently weigh 162lbs. I would like to lose 32lbs by July 1st, approximately 16 weeks, which equals 2lbs per week. I am looking for healthy, long lasting weight loss but I’m hoping these supplements will give me a boost to help with energy and appetite suppression as well as fat loss. Good luck to everyone, I hope these supplements help!

  54. Rachel says:

    I am very skeptical taking diet pills because of the side effect. But after reading the reviews, I decided to give it a shot. I started taking it last Jan. 31, 2014. I lost 7lbs. and I only take 2 pills before breakfast and another 2 pills before lunch. I do 20 mins. exercise 4 days a week and eat a smaller portion of meals. I am happy with the result.

  55. Rachel says:

    By the way I got the one from Walmart Pythogenix Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia.

  56. Ina J Blewitt says:

    I ordered 3 bottles and started as soon as they arrived. As soon as I started taking it I noticed a rash of tiny blisters. I thought there might have been something in the hay at our farm. So I kept taking the product and I proceeded to claw skin off my body. I was very allergic to it. I contacted the company I bought it from and sent itback for a refund that I am waiting to receive. They didn’t seem to be surprised about the rash.

  57. Joseph says:

    I bought the two pack box of the Garcinia Cambogia at Walmart and I am going on 14 weeks of taking not on the GC but also I take the Green coffee bean also.I started both products at the same time and my results have been nothing short of amazing. I did wear a size 40 inch waist in jeans now I am in a comfortable 34 inch.I do fully believe my results were accelerated due to the GCB the cleansing of my body is what I think gave me the great results. I did spend almost 2 months 4 to 5 times a day in the bathroom. However the end result is just fantastic. I feel great and have lost now a total 58 lbs.

  58. Joseph says:

    Also I stop drinking sodas and no sweets and ate plenty of nuts, and yogurt but did remain on basically the same meats and vegetables that I was used to.One more thing I did not exercise at all so I will continue to follow this path and update every 2 weeks.

  59. Rob G says:

    Hee hee!! Amusing to say the least but hopefully Eugene as well as others stick to a reputable product and not bounce around in hopes of mitigating the china panda buffet/ chocolate factories calorie consumption. I’m only 7 lbs. over my desired weight but am guilty of wanting a shortcut too. I have a pharmacology background so I know that this walmart phytogenix is the creme de la creme. I was able to shed 7 lbs in 6 days but I followed the directions 100 %. I finished both bottles in 6 days while consuming 100 oz H20/day. I’m down 2 lbs in week 2 w/o product so the high dose of 3,000 + as well as 1/2 body wt. in oz water is a must. I consumed roughly 2200-2,600 calories/day, except for day 2 when I messed up and hit 5,000 cal. I had another cheat meal which was another 3,700, of healthy foods. I would say good luck but it has nothing to do with that since it works w/o a doubt, but you have to truly want it.

  60. Rob G says:

    I should clarify that my 100% efforts are more like 80% to the average, non binge, ideal weight person. The last two weeks are the best discipline dietary weeks in my life.

    • Eugene says:

      Thank you Rob G.,
      You are the first person I see that had great results from using the 12 pills per day. For me, I was in no hurry and since it was recommended that I take 1500 mg per day and it seemed to work for me, I did it. I actually have taken 2 brands that have Garcinia Cambogia as their primary ingredient, 1 brand that has 4 main ingredients (GC being just one of them), and a 4th brand of weight control product with no GC at all. All four seemed to have some effect, although somewhat different. I lost 16 lbs. total and took an amazing 3 inches off my waist. I am now off all products except food and hope I can maintain the progress.

  61. cali says:

    Hate to be the burden of bad news but your all wasting your time and $8.00. There is a reason the real stuff costs $50-$100. The #1 ingredient if you did your research on the stuff, tells you that fillers and other stuff you probably have no clue what it is, I know I don’t….will be added and that ingredient is Calcium phosphate look at your box….For whatever reason that is a big no no for this particular diet pill. I know this because I was suckered into wanting to believe the cheap stuff is just as good. And yes it states to take 4 pills 3 times daily wow! poor liver!!!!

  62. Daphne says:

    So.. I bought this product today. Really glad some people have posted on lower doses. I have a heart condition so I am being very careful right now. I will only be taking 2 pills before each meal ;) will post results. I am also dieting, and substituting protein shakes for snacks! Daily workouts! Interested to see how well this works! Will post results ;)

    • mary says:

      i talked to wal-mart pharmacist and showed him my blood pressure pills, out of all the diet pills they sell,this is the only safe one for me.

  63. CarlaG says:

    I just bought a double box of Ultimate GC from GNC…it says take 2 and hr before every meal…anyone else?

  64. Ny says:

    I started the product 3 weeks ago…I have taken 4 pills 3 times a day…One hour before meals. I have lost 20 lbs and 4 inches at least. I love this product. Minimal exercise not much different in my food in take….I’m sure going to continue taking this product as I am diabetic and need the weight loss.

  65. Nikki1234 says:

    I’m 15 years old and I want to try this because I’m over weight but I don’t know if it would be bad for me, does anyone know?

    • Watchdog Team says:

      Dear Nikki,
      The advice for taking any dietary supplement is that its suitable for over 18 year olds only. So we wouldn’t advise taking any dietary supplement under 18 years of age and suggest speaking your local physician who can best advise you.
      Kind regards
      Diet Pills Watchdog Team

  66. Cyndi Najera says:

    I just bought the Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia from Walmart. Dosage says 4 pills 3 times a day. Now after a lot of research one major thing that stands out to me is that it says in order for your body to absorb the HCA and the fruit extract ingredients must have potassium and calcium. For maximum weight loss. This brand has neither. And calcium and potassium are common supplements for absorbtion. So I think I will look to find a product that includes these 2 ingredients without the other fillers this brand has. Had anyone else heard or read this information?

  67. charity says:

    I started taking this paticular brand march 15 and have lost 3 belt sizes, instead of craving junk I crave healther foods. I have hbp, hypothyroid, and am an emotional eater. I am able to control my eating habits. And I have had no side effects other than what I mentioned. I feel great!!

  68. Lola says:

    Hi there
    I take 2 pills in the morning with 1 raspberry ketone pill and 2 green coffee bean pills again with raspberry ketone in the afternoon. Yesterday (day 1) I forgot to take my afternoon dosage but was still not hungry. I feel it’s very strong in suppressing my appetite. It’s only been 2 days and I have lost 3lbs. The effect is different for everyone but I’m happy it works. I have tried different pills in the past including Lida Daidaihua and Phentermine which worked for my friends but not for me. So exciting…

  69. Barbara says:

    I have read all the comments and will be starting tomorrow. I am going to start with the 4 pills in the am and then do 3 before lunch and 2 before dinner. I need to lose belly fat! I am hoping to see results before I run out of pills! Well see if it works!!

  70. amber says:

    i have been taking this product for about 4 weeks now. I take 3 pills 3 times a day. I try to take it about an hour before meal, but sometimes i forget, so i take it as soon as i remember… 10 or 20 mins before i eat. I have lost 15 pounds. I will also say i did not intend to change my eating habits, however after about a week or so of taking it, i noticed that my craving for sweets was all but gone. In the past week or so i have also given up soda pop because i am not craving the caffeine because i have more energy.

  71. Juls says:

    Can anyone tell me if they have experience more hunger instead of a decrease in hunger? I have taken it for 4 days now and I have not lost any weight or inches and I do not feel different at all. Infact, They have left me feeling a tad dizzy and I’ve had some headaches? Ive been taking the 4 pills, 3x a day 30 mins before meals. Not sure if this is working for me but will continue for another 2 wks.

  72. neal says:

    Started today. read a lot of reviews.. following directions on bottle I’m a 325 lbs lite. I’ll update in 7 days..????????

  73. Matt Pounds says:

    meI. is is my seventh day of using the Walmart product. It does seem to curb your appetite some. but I made certain I ate the same foods and tried to eat the same amount anyway. after 4 days I seem to have lost a pound and a half but after 7 days I actually gained 2 pounds. seems to me that it may work if you work along with the suppress appetite but if you do not work with the suppress appetite it doesn’t seem to do any good at least not for the first week in mMMay

  74. SHIRLEY says:

    APRIL 15,2014 @8:14AM
    Just starting to take the gc pills. 12 seem excessive to me. Will start out with 2 pills in the morning 2 pills in the afternoon. I think it will work just as well.
