Green coffee extract–a diet miracle?

Recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show, green coffee extract has quickly become one of the most popular natural weight loss supplements of 2012. Dr. Oz, a world renown physician, medical researcher and television host stated that green coffee extract could be the key to weight loss. Dr. Oz stated, “A recent study showed women and men who took Green Coffee Extract lost an astounding amount of fat and weight – 17 pounds in 22 weeks – by doing absolutely nothing extra in their day!”

Lindsey Duncan, a Naturopathic Doctor & Certified Nutritionist, was also interviewed by Dr. Oz. “The participants took the capsules, they did nothing else and didn’t change their diet. They actually consumed 2,400 calories a day, they burned only 400 calories. Now that should be weight gain, not weight loss. And, they lost over 10% of their total body weight.” He went on to say, “They lost 16% of their total body fat and they lost 17 pounds per participant and they had no side effects.”

Green coffee extract works in more than one way, “The first way is it goes in and causes the body to burn glucose, or sugar and burn fat, mainly in the liver.”The second way, the most important way, is it slows the release of sugar into the blood stream. So when you don’t have sugar building up in the blood stream, you don’t have fat building up because sugar turns to fat. When the two are combined together, you get this synergistic effect that basically burns and blocks and stops fat, but it also is natural and safe.”

Dr. Oz went on to conduct his own study with two viewers, Kendra and Omeyra, over a five day period and the results were remarkable. “I gave all the information we could find on this product to our medical unit, they did diligent work but we still wanted to see what would happen in real life.” In five days, just taking the pill with no other changes to their lives, Kendra lost 2 pounds and Omayra lost 6 pounds!
