Here are 10 amazing benefits of Green Tea!

Burning fat with Forskolin and Garcinia Cambogia!

Is your New Year’s Resolution to lose weight? If so, you may want to try Forskolin and Garcinia Cambogia weight loss supplements.  You are probably thinking…this is just another weight loss gimmick or fad.  I thought so too.  If you watch the Dr. Oz show, you probably saw these two supplements featured a few months ago.  These weight loss supplements are supposed to melt the fat off your body.  I can attest that the fat does not melt away and you will not wake up to a slimmer body over night.  However, you will lose weight over time.  I have used these two supplements together for five weeks and  I have lost 5 pounds.  I have not changed my diet nor have I done any type of exercise (other than my normal everyday walking and stretching.)


Forskolin and Garcina Cambogia also boost your energy!  So if you are not really looking to lose weight and need an all natural energy booster, you can choose one or the other.  I recommend that you drink lots of water or you will feel very thirsty and dehydrated all the time.  I took one Forskolin and Garcinia Cambogia about thirty minutes before eating a large meal, and within twenty of thirty minutes of eating I would have to use the bathroom.  These two powerful supplements will clean your colon out!  I am happy with the results and will continue to use both the Forskolin and Garcinia Cambogia on a daily basis.

I received both products complimentary from Tomoson in exchange for an honest review.
