I have taken high strength garcinia cambogia before and it worked to curb my cravings and I managed to lose weight not that weight loss was my main goal. I have been taking 1 a day of these for just on a month now and they are working just like the other brand I've used. I don't think about food all of the time as I'm not hungry all of the time which is good. My portion sizes and shrunk again and I'm seeing a bit of weight loss too. Would recommend if you want to curb your cravings to eat less.
