Awesome, thanks so much! First, I want to say thank you so much for this information. I know you can do it, Portia! What a great article. Just wanted to say that I have lost almost 30 pounds and I am 83 years old and not able to exercise at all. I exercise 6 days out of the week so I hope weight watchers will help! I had success twice with WW many years ago and would love to do it again but have a couple of questions please.
Of the 23 trials they identified, 12 were methodologically sound enough to include in their analysis. The analysis revealed that some statistically significant weight loss occurred, but the magnitude of the effect is small and the clinical relevance is uncertain. They also found that gastrointestinal adverse events were twice as likely in the hydroxycitric acid group as in the placebo group.
