View Full Version : Garcinia Cambogia Extract affect on Atkins diet

As an Atkins believer, and one skeptical of OTC "diet supplements", I am curious to know how garcinia cambogia extract compares with/interferes with the biochemistry of the Atkins low-carb approach. GCE is touted as supposedly reducing the ability to metabolize carbs through enzyme manipulation, thus increasing fat burning. It sounds more like just another appetite suppressant to avoid at all costs! But some may see this as a win-win, which could be scary if the 2 interfere. Atkins Advisors: please set us straight on the interaction problems of GCE with the "bio-normal" Atkins approach.

Look into the science behind it and not someone telling you one thing or another, work out will also increase your fat burning.

Exactly. Agreed. I'm happy with the Atkins way, trust me. And as a scientist, I understand the Atkins theory. So I'm just curious about the Atkins take on this GCE claim, since GCE results are described as similar pathways and results.
