Green Coffee Beans Show Potential As Fast Weight Loss Method

March 27, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. scientists report that supplementing a low-fat diet and regular exercise with multiple capsules of green (unroasted) coffee extract every day seems to be a safe, effective, inexpensive and quick way to lose weight. For the cross-over study, 16 obese or overweight young adults took green coffee bean capsules, alternating between 700 mg and 1,050 mg capsules daily, for 22 weeks. People cycled through the two doses as well as a placebo capsule, each for six-week periods. Average weight loss was  17 pounds, and included an average 10.5 percent decrease in overall body weight and 16 percent decrease in body fat. Weight loss might have been faster, except that each participant received the placebo and the lower dose of  extract during the study.
