Do you take Green Coffee Bean Extract?
There has been much talk in the diet world about Green Coffee Bean Extract over the last year. Do you take it? If so, have you noticed a difference in your body weight or how you feel? If you've lost weight, how much have you lost and how long did it take you?
Abby......1st, let me say, "I have not tried the green coffee bean extract." Like you, I have seen all the ads and claims, of this, the "latest miracle product," for losing weight.
This extract, can pretty much be equated with the GREEN TEA fad that made it's debut about a decade ago. Basically, these 2 supplements, as well as countless others, 98% of the time, act as metabolism boosters. Truthfully, not unlike your simple cup of coffee or tea, with caffeine.
While an accelerated metabolism is a desirable effect, when looking to lose a few lbs.....as always, there is much more that goes along with it. Nothing out of the ordinary or focus on common sense. Healthy foods, cooked in a healthy method, portion control, and some sort (ANY sort) of exercise program. Yoga, walking, stretching, pilates, aerobics, Zumba.....you name it...you choose it.
Alas, the green coffee bean extract is the baby of a marketing genius, who had the plan to take something very available and ordinary and add a mountain of hype! The result of yet another opportunist. Hey, it is a free country of Capitalism!......Save your money, Abby......have a cup of tea or coffee!.
Haha! Thanks, Paula. I'm a nutritionist, so I know what to do. I am asking just out of curiosity... want to see how others are doing with it. I read several studies this morning which prompted me to the questions. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Oh my goodness! A nutritionist! And here I am, advising the expert!! Oh well.....Did you read anything interesting about it?
LOL, no problem, Paula. I figured you didn't know, but it was cute reading your words. I was actually looking up the benefits of GCB for my daughter who has Raynaud's. It was quite interesting, especially with the findings of fat loss.
Sometimes, I take a thermogenic supplement before going to the gym, in order to raise my energy levels and speed up my metabolism. From what I've noticed, a lot of these thermogenic supplements have green coffee bean extracts.
I have no clue what effect the coffee beans have on my body, but the supplements do have an overall huge impact on my performance and looks. I've burned more fat on thermogens than on any other diet and exercise program I have ever tried.
Thanks for commenting, KFusha. GCB has EGCG which is the most abundant catechin and a potent antioxidant. Please be careful with taking thermogenics on a regular basis as it can effect thyroid health & cause metabolic decline. Cycle if you must u
I had no idea they can have such negative side effects. Thank you so much for teaching me something so beneficial. I truly appreciate it.
Yes, I have taken it. It's supposed to prevent the liver from converting carbohydrates into sugars. I lost some weight while taking it daily, but it was combined with exercise, so who knows? I did feel less tired when taking it, as would be expected with a product containing caffiene.
