I don’t know about you, but I have been hearing about Garcinia Cambogia and Green Coffee Bean Extract supplements for about a year now. I have always been curious if this “miracle pill” really works to help you lose weight, so when I got the chance to be a guinea pig and try the supplements out for myself, I jumped at the chance.
I have struggled with my weight since I was in high school and after having 2 children almost back to back, my body just has never been the same. I have often felt self conscious about my stomach area and have been working on getting my body back this year! Puritan’s Pride has helped me kick start my journey with some awesome products; Super Citrimax Garcinia Camobogia, Green Coffee Bean Extract, and Myoleptin CLA supplements.
I received product to facilitate this post.
Let Puritan’s Pride Help You Kick Start Your Weightloss Journey
Puritan’s Pride Super Citrimax Garcinia Cambogia is made from the rind of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit that is native to Indonesia. The main ingredient that comes from the rind is called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), this active compound helps to support your dieting goals. It takes away the feeling of being hungry so that you will snack less throughout the day and at meal times you won’t feel the need to eat as much. Over time this helps you learn proper portion sizes and your body will feel full on less. This formula of Garcinia Cambogia also contains Chromium Picolinate to help support sugar metabolism.
I noticed while taking Garcinia Cambogia that I was hungry less often and I also began to not have cravings for sugary foods. I no longer drink my favorite (Coke, I know, it’s bad) pop and don’t have issues with bloating anymore.
Puritan’s Pride Green Coffee Bean Extract contains antioxidants to clear your system of free radicals that are caused by pollution, smoking and other hazards we encounter daily. The antioxidants in the Green Coffee Bean extract assist in maintaining good health.
The biggest thing I noticed with the Green Coffee Bean Extract was the amount of energy that I had throughout the day. I would take a dose of the Green Coffee Bean Extract with my breakfast in the morning and never had a drop in energy throughout the day. With little ones running around the house all day, this was a HUGE deal to me!
Puritan’s Pride Super Strength Myoleptin CLA, okay, what is Myoleptin? That’s exactly what I thought when I saw the bottle, but I love this product! It contains a variety of isomers that help your body create healthy and toned muscle definition.
With this product I noticed that my leg muscles, biceps and triceps were getting more toned. I loved the way this supplement works. I would take it at lunch time right before my kids’ quiet time, which is when I would exercise.
Trim Down for Summer with Puritan’s Pride
Now for the part that everyone is curious about…the results! I took these supplements for 4 weeks and recorded my measurements and weight loss each week.
Week 1: I lost a total of 3 inches all over my body, and lost a total of 3lbs. In just one week my stomach bloat had gone down a bit and my energy was a little low just because I was used to eating more than I did. I exercised 3 times for an hour each time.
Week 2: From the end of Week 1 to the end of Week 2, I lost 4.5 inches and lost 4lbs. I ate normally, did not change my regular diet, just the portion sizes were different. I exercised 2 times for an hour each time. I felt like I had more energy this week.
Week 3: From the end of Week 2 to the end of Week 3, I lost a 2.5 inches, and lost 3.5lbs. I ate normally, I had a splurge with some dessert one night, and did not exercise this week at all.
Week 4: From the end of Week 3 to the end of Week 4, I lost an additional 2.5 inches, and lost 2.5lbs. I exercised once this week for one hour. At the end of one month, I have lost a total of 12.5 inches over my entire body, and have a weight loss total of 13lbs!
These results are with minimal exercise and not really changing my diet too much. I did try to make healthier choices, and I drank mostly water and the occasional coffee. Besides cleaning the house and doing my daily activities, I did not exercise too much, but I wish that I would have. Each of the supplements mentioned above have it written on the back , that to see better results, you need to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. You do the work, and the supplements will work and help you with your weightloss goals.
Get Soft Summer Skin with Puritan’s Pride
With Memorial Day Weekend already upon us, why not get a few great products for keeping your skin soft and supple? You can do it with Aloe Vera Gel 99% and for your lips, try Organic Doctor Vitamin E Multi Action Lip Balm.
Aloe Vera Gel 99%: I remember when I was younger, getting a bad sunburn and using Aloe Vera Gel to soothe and cool my skin. I never realized that Aloe Vera Gel 99% is a great skin moisturizer! This formula of Aloe Vera Gel has no added color, and gently soothes and nourishes your skin. I like to put it on right after my shower. It is great for sensitive skin and when completely dry it doesn’t feel sticky or oily. It feels like I put nothing on, and I love that!
Organic Skincare Doctor’s Organic Vitamin E Multi Action Lip Balm: This lip balm is awesome! I love that it is made from certified organic and natural ingredients. It smells like a mild vanilla and I love to let my kids use it! I know that even if they are licking their lips a little bit, the product they are ingesting isn’t going to hurt them in any way. It makes my lips instantly softer and it lasts a long time. It also adds a nice shimmer to my lips, so when I feel like having a more natural makeup look, this has become my go to.
