Ever since Dr. Oz touted green coffee bean extract (i.e. unroasted coffee beans) as the new miracle weight loss pill, millions of bottles have been flying off the shelves and into the homes of people across North America. Green coffee bean extract contains chlorogenic acid, which advocates claim slows the release of glucose into the body after a meal. The result is weight loss.
During a study, people who took the pill lost 2 pounds in 2 weeks. The placebo group lost an average of 1 pound in 2 weeks. Here’s the catch: Both groups lost weight. Skeptics say that the results only give proof that people can lose weight if they think they are expected to lose weight. In other words, mind over matter. The green coffee bean extract had nothing to do with the weight loss.
Another point of contention is the relatively small group of people studied. The ‘miracle pill’ is fairly new, and many experts feel that more studies should be done before any there can be any conclusive results.
What should you do in the meantime? Go back to basics. Eat well and exercise. Burn more calories than you consume. It is the only sure way to shed pounds.
