Deidre Houser says
My garcinia label reads- take 2 pill in the morning 30minutes to 2 hours before your morning meal. Is this right? Should I be taking it before each meal? I have read many things n I want to do this right! I am 5’2 n I weigh 200 lbs.. Please help!
Mounota Rahman says
Yes you have to take before each meal. Remember don’t take more than 2,500 mg a day.
What do you mean by 2,000 mg?
Sarah Leon says
This is my first time trying garcinia cambogia… How would I take them without taking 2500mg a day. Because one serving is 2 capsules 1000mg??
Read your garcinia bottle level what are the dosage. As your 2 capsules is 1000mg then take two times per day.
Hey its my first time trying this mine says to take 2 capsules 30 minutes before a primary meal with an 8oz glass of water. So does that mean I only take two once after the one meal or do I just take one or what I’m confused
How much your mg size of per serving ?
Yes take the pills before all three meals..I take mind at least 30 minutes before eating or even drinking coffee
So have you lost weight? Did it work? I am just starting and the more i am reading i am starting to worry.
My directions say to take 1 capsule day 1 &2 and then 2 for day 3&4, and 3 for day 5-7. But I read online you can take 3 each day, once a day for the 7 days is that true? Will it still work? Does it matter what time of the day I take it?
How many you take daily
Mounota Rahman says
Take daily 3 pill and make sure not more than 2,500 mg/day
Kathryn Short says
Ok my question is do you take garcinia & then ur green cleanse? How does this work?
Mounota Rahman says
Green cleanse alone can help you to lose weight and so taking garcinia with it multiplies your effectiveness. You can read more at https://healthynaturaldiet.com/using-colon-cleanse-garcinia-cambogia/
So, I’m confused. Do you take 1 pill 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch, and dinner? And then eat? This is my first time taking them and everything I read is different.
Mounota Rahman says
Yes take before 30 before you eating.
Okay I’m confused the label says take 1 serving (3 tablets) 2 times daily 30-60 minutes before your two largest meals. So how would that work? How many do I take a day? Because the comments are saying different amounts
Mounota Rahman says
Maybe you bought 1,500mg Garcinia Cambogia.
That mean generally 1 capsule made by 500mg, (500mg x 3 = 1500mg).
Yes, you should two (2) times a day 3 capsules 1/2 hour to 1 hour before meals.
I’m confused my pills come crushed in a little sleeve do I take it with water or just swallow it?
The one I’m takimg says 3 pills 2 times a day before meals.
I think that’s a bit much. Can I just take 1 pill 3 times a day?
The label says garnicia cambogia 1000 mg serving size 2
Mounota Rahman says
For 1000mg recommend dosage two (2) times a day 2 capsules 1/2 hour to 1 hour before meals.
I took garcinea cambogia for a month and actually gained 20lbs. I didnt buy the 2nd pill, the night time cleanse. I actually felt bloated and constipated. It wasnt a pleasent experience. I have another months supply and now i need to drop the 20 lbs i put on plus another 20lbs to get to a weight i can live with. Im a stay at home mom and I cannot live in stretchy pants for the rest of my life. Is it possible to lose 40 lbs in one month, if i purchase the green tea cleanse pills also? Is there a specific menu of food I can follow in conjuncture with the pills? I know the hype of it says i can loose weight without dieting, but obviously that didnt work for me. Any advice?
To lose weight you have to be patient. You should continue the pill at least 8 weeks and do some exercise besides taking pill to get the best result. If you try you can loss around 20lb per month. Remember don’t continue the pill more than 12 weeks. Read: What To Eat While Taking Garcinia Cambogia

I just purchased slimax garcinia cambogia and it says to take 2 pills with a glass of water. That is recommended dosage. It has amounts per serving 1000 mg of garcinia, calico 50mg,potassium 50mg,chromium 200 mcg. It does state or say anywhere on the bottle how many times a day or more than 2 pills a day. I was curious after reading several places it shows yo take before each meal and max dosage 2500 in a day. So am I not taking it right?
Yes max dosage 2500mg and take between 30 minutes to one hour before meal.
Hello, I was reading some past comments and I’m still a little confused of how many mg should be taken a day. On the package I have it states to take 3 tablets per serving twice a day half hour to and hour before each meal which equals 3,200mg. Should I take the recommended amount of tablets that’s stated on the box?
That my first time so there said I take 4 pills for 3 times per day and 1556mg but box said it 5x more garcinia cambigina and bonus 50 pills + 50 pills free and 60% hydroxycitric acid and 4668 mg/day.
What I do with this for step to step
You can take maximum 2400mg/day.
Mine has take 2 capsules before lunch or dinner. But I can take 1 before lunch and 1 before dinner right? Or one before breakfast lunch and dinner? Serving size 2 capsules and contains 1000th not sure if that’s for 2 or each capsule?
I only need to lose 5-10 pounds. Could I take 2 pills only before dinner, instead of 2 pills before breakfast, lunch and dinner?? I figured dinner is probably the highest fat meal and when I tend to over eat. It could help with appetite control. I would only be getting 500mg a day. Would it be helpful or a waste to do it this way??
Hello So This is my first time taking these capsules! I purchased Garcinia Slim with 90 capsules ( 2 daily before meals) and Organic Detox Cleanse and I want to know if I can take these together or Should I take the garcinia ones at one time and The Detox later!??
If you have a high amount of roughage in your diet, eating raw fruits and fresh vegetables for 75% of your daily meals, then a colon cleanse is probably not necessary.

Donnalyn Matteson says
I’m just curious this is my first time and I’ve heard all the great things about this diet pill but I feel it’s just for a scam of getting people’s money but I am wondering why do they want u to wait 20-30 minutes before eating after u take the pills?? I don’t understand what that part is for!! I pray this isn’t a scam and that it really works because I haven’t had any luck losing weight. Thanks.

My bottle says take two capsules three times per day. 30-120 minutes before each meal. But the dosage on it isn’t clearly listed. All I see is Garcinia Cambodia Extract 1560 mg. What should I do?
My bottle says take 3 capsules once daily so does that mean all three pills at once.
Hi I’m going to order my garcinia cambogia pills soon but I have some quick questions first. I’ve seen where some people put 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a small glass of tea take the pill and drink the tea and I’ve seen very good results and research behind that. Do you know what kind of tea you would drink? Sweet tea? Natural tea? Or what. And Also is it safe to take with the 2 teaspoons ofapple cider vinegar or should I just stick with the 8oz glass of water with the pill 30 minutes before meal?
This is so confusing. Every thing you hear is different. My bottle says take 2 capsules daily and they’re 1000mg. Should I take 1 2xday or 2 1xday? I also have a 30 day cleanse (pill form) and it says to take 2 tablets daily. When should I take that?

@Jeanette Yes take 1 pill 30 minute before each meal. You can take both together. Read this article https://healthynaturaldiet.com/using-colon-cleanse-garcinia-cambogia/
Ellen Tant says
The pills I bought are only 50% but 500 mg each. Says to take one before each meal. That is only 1500 mg a day at 50% hydroxycitric acid. My question is, since my breakfast and lunch are kinds shakes should I take 2 pills before I eat dinner? Am wondering because they are only 50% hydroxycitric acid not the 60% recomended. This would still only put me at 2000 mg a day.
Just take 3 capsules per day and continue it 2 weeks. If you see the result then take 4 capsules per day.
I have the slimforce Garcinia Cambogia and it came with a daily cleanse… it says to take two a day on each of them. Do I take them together so it would be four in all?
Yes, you can. Just make sure that when you are taking the supplements together, the dosage should be controlled as described on the back of the bottles.
I’m taking Essential Elements Garcinia Cambogia and it says take one pill 3 times a day 30 minutes before meals… I understand that…BUT can I just take ALL 3 PILLS AT ONCE in the morning on an empty stomach and eat & exercise well, so that I don’t have to worry about taking it 3 times a day? If I do it my way what will happen because I kind of don’t see the big deal?
You should not take all at once. Please take them in 3 times.
Do i open the pill? Or just swallow it whole?
Swallow it with a glass of water. If you face problem to swallow the pill watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBqrCLS4Mtw
