Not really: Garlic can season your food but it doesn't promote weight loss. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

??: I am unaware of using garlic to lose weight. Bottom line is calories out should be more that calories in. Contact your doctor for guidelines and see what is best for you.We cannot endorse brand names on Health Tap. Good luck.
