Green Coffee...Any input??

Apr 16, 2013 - 35 comments

So I've been researching Green Coffee pills. It's shown to have great results in weight loss.

If you're unsure of what green coffee is, it's coffee beans before they're roasted.

So I'm just wondering if anyone has used it? If so, what kind of results did you see?

Thanks

haha seems like a lot of people are trying it out.

Well I've lost the pregnancy weight, but I have a wedding dress to fit into for July. It was bought some time ago before I started gaining weight. So I'm trying to lose this stubborn weight so I can look my best in the dress!

Ok ladies I need to know about this,. Green Coffee Pill????

Where do you get it? Do you eat a normalk healthy diet with it? Whats the story lol!! I need to be in a wedding dress in a year so I have time but Im impatient!

1580318 tn?1550258081
by Shannon79, Apr 24, 2013
lol. I know all about the impatient. You can get it at health food stores. Can buy it online. Yep just a normal healthy diet. I also drink lots of water.

Basically it's a fat blocker. It inhibits the release of glucose into the bloodstream, which in turn causes the body to other sources for energy such as stored fat cells. Also it increases metabolism, causing the liver to burn fat faster and accelerating your body's ability to lose weight naturally.

I also use apple cider vinegar. It's a natural body cleanser, and breaks down fats that your body naturally stores

You drink Apple Cider Vinegar!!?? OMG do you mix it with something? Ill check out the pills idk about vinegaR HAHA

You have to buy the pills that either contain svetol or gcb and they can't have any fillers, binders or artificial anything. Ive heard that is the best to get. I only found one that is exactly like that. Started taking it yesterday. If you take one that has other ingredients and doesn't have svetol it won't work as well. Also make sure it has 45% or more chorolegenic (sp?) acid

I put a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water and drink it 3 times a day. It doesn't taste very good, I can tell you that. But it's helping tremendously. In the first 2 days, I lost 2 pounds. I'm now losing about a pound a week. And I've lost 4 inches off my tummy already. If you try the apple cider vinegar, get the stuff at health food stores, not somewhere like walmart. The stuff I use is called Bragg's. It's in a glass bottle with a yellow label. It's raw, unfiltered and organic. I wouldn't suggest drinking it straight because it's so acidic, it can strip the enamel off your teeth.

Agree with butterfly. I got one that has 50% chlorogenic acid. That's the ingrediet that is the fat blocker, metabolism increaser

Shannon and butterfly what are the names of the ones you are taking? We have Whole Foods, GNC, the Vitamin Shoppe all around me so shouldnt be a problem I wouldnt think to find, what is the cost of this?

1580318 tn?1550258081
by Shannon79, Apr 24, 2013
I buy my products at GNC. I bought the "system" green coffee. Here in Canada, it was about $20 a bottle. So not sure what it would be in the US. The apple cider vinegar is about $7 a bottle

I got mine at vitamin shop and it says in big red letters Green Coffee Bean Extract. It's a white bottle. It's the only one that says it has no fillers, binders ect. It's from the makers of lean body.

by butterflybabies, Apr 24, 2013
Oh and it was the only one that had svetol and no fillers, binders ect

Shannon, if you want to help the taste with the ACV, I used to put mine in with crystal light tea (any flavor) with a little bit of raw organic honey.  It made it taste SO much better and easier to get down.  I did a tsp of the honey with 2 tsp of the vinegar in an 8oz glass of tea 3x a day.  Just heat the honey up for about 10 seconds in the microwave to make it more liquid like!

1580318 tn?1550258081
by Shannon79, Apr 24, 2013
Ah okay. Yeah the bottle does say you can add honey or black strap molasses. I've never tried it.

If you are sensitive to caffeine, these wouldn't be wise to take.  They can cause a rapid heart rate and heart flutters that are uncomfortable.  good luck

lol @ butterfly. I'm noticing the same thing! :-O But I have noticed (and so has DF), that I'm toning up in my sides. I can feel muscle there now! I've only done tummy crunch stuff exercises once, and that was yesterday. So one day won't cause toning. So I'm thinking it's the green coffee. Not sure if it's supposed to do that. But I'll take some toning. They say muscle weighs more then fat.

Gardezi - I would agree with specialmom about not taking the green coffee while breastfeeding. From the stuff that I was reading about ACV and breastfeeding, they say there's no research done on that topic. They say to avoid it though because of unknown risks

Funny thing is I feel thinner. Maybe it is my scale idk.

1580318 tn?1550258081
by Shannon79, Apr 26, 2013
Do you notice any thinning anywhere? Or muscle tone?

334926 tn?1436815123
by butterflybabies, Apr 26, 2013
I have to much fat to notice muscle tone lol... but like I feel thinner in my gut area.

1580318 tn?1550258081
by Shannon79, Apr 26, 2013
lol i know that feeling too :-S

Well I think if you feel thinner, then you're getting thinner. I'd also say if you haven't done so yet, stand in front of a mirror and see what you think. That's what made me realize my gut was getting smaller.

Also ask DH to see what he thinks. My DF commented on me getting smaller

Ladies how is this going? Wanted to follow up on it and are you doing colon cleanse also

1580318 tn?1550258081
by Shannon79, Jun 11, 2013
I've lost 11 pounds so far. And lost 5 inches off my tummy.

They recommend doing some kind of colon cleanser with it. I'm just using apple cider vinegar, so that's a body cleanser
