On Dr. Oz show was said that you need to take at least 3000 milligrams to see results, the more you take is better to expect weight loss results. I am taking 2400 milligrams, that is 2 capsules 30 minutes before each meal, since each capsules is 400 milligrams. Try to go to Dr. Oz website and enter Garcinia Cambogia on the search field and you will get 3 small videos on it and just watch it, maybe this information will make you understand more. Good luck to you and all of us, I will tell you I need to loose 50 lbs., I am taking this product for health purposes and to feel good about myself. I have been doing it just for 7 days so far, I have not seen any changes yet, but I need to try it, so I will be on this at least for 30 days, try to share any experiences with all of us.
