What is up with all this Green Coffee Bean Extract? According to WebMD.com: Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted. The roasting process of coffee beans reduces amounts of the chemical chlorogenic acid. Thus, green coffee beans contain a higher level of chlorogenic acid than regular roasted coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid found in green coffee is believed to provide health benefits for heart disease, diabetes, weight loss and more.
Green coffee became an overnight sensation for weight loss after it was featured on the Dr. Oz show in 2012.

A small study was funded by Applied Food Sciences which makes the supplements. It was 16 people ages 22 to 46. They were asked not to change their diet or increase activity more than what they currently were doing. A placebo was given at one point and then a supplement of 700 mg and then one at 1050 mg. They were to take 3 caplets 30 minutes before meals and 3 times a day.
The amount of caffeine per day from the supplements was only equal to the amount in 1/2 cup of coffee. There were no bad side effects from the supplements.

Have you tried Green Coffee Bean Extract, what brand did you use and did it work for you?
The green coffee bean extract has worked for me so far. I ordered the cheapest bottle I could find from amazon. I paid only $10 for 800mg dosage, 60 pills, one month supply. I have read reviews in other places about how the "cheap" bottles of this is really not what it says it is. Everyone was complaining that it tasted like cocoa powder and sugar so I cracked open a capsule and sure enough, what I had was a fake! So I switched to a different brand with better reviews and lost 7 lbs last week. I just joined this website so I put my current weight as the start point, after the 7 lbs I lost. I am not quitting this anytime soon!
