Something interesting on Dr. Oz

I never watch his show but it caught my eye while turning channels. He had another doctor on who said that his favorite new fat burner was Green Coffee Bean Extract. I won't say more because I'm being really careful to not ever again give misinformation. But I did some research online and it seems very interesting. So I thought I'd just mention it for those of you who might be interested.

I am taking it. Have not noticed a difference since I have started taking it. I started it about 2 weeks ago....maybe longer. And I take it as Dr Oz has suggested on his website.

Thanks for posting this, Muffabuff. I looked this up to see what Dr. Oz had to say:
Green Coffee Bean Extract & Weight Loss -..." target="_blank">Dr. Oz - Green Coffee Bean Extract & Weight Loss -...
The two women he interviewed certainly had good success. I liked that the green coffee bean also had a positive effect on blood glucose. The Dr. who presented the product said "there were no side effects." My only concern is that both women said they had more energy; and just about any supplement that boosts energy for me has also spiked my blood pressure. I may try this supplement and keep a real close eye on my blood pressure for any spikes that seem related.

Kimberly, I am curious to hear how this works. I ran out of my Raw Resveratrol and completely forgot to pick up more. One thing I have noticed since not havin the Resveratrol is that I am dead tired by 8:00 pm!!! So, I definitely had more energy while on it. Weight loss seems to be the same.

Sounds interesting. Anything that claims not to have side effects, helps with weight loss, gives more energy AND helps with blood glucose gets a trial run from me. I will try to pick some up this afternoon when I leave work.

Thanks for the post!

Yup. That is the one I tried too. Did nothing for me. Strange because when I bought mine in Walmart, there was a big display. The next week when I went back to Walmart---nothing. Could not find it at all. Hmmm....so I switched over to another I found online. Felt nothing different with that one either. Must be an individual thing. I have been taking this for more than 2 weeks too. No weight change, no energy change.

I read an article about it a couple months ago in Life Extension and have been taking it for my diabetes. Mostly take it with carby meals because it's supposed to reduce bg spikes. I think it helps, because I have a tendency to get sleepy after carbs, and I feel fine if I take a carb blocker + green coffee extract.

Also was taking it before bed sometimes because it's supposed to prevent the liver from dumping glucose--a problem for diabetics, known as "dawn phenomenon". Haven't been doing so lately because I'm trying out another supplement called "yacón".

Well, this is day two of taking green coffee bean. No weight loss, but blood pressure this morning is 122/69 an hour and a half after taking morning dose. Yesterday, no spike in BP. JUDDD controls my BP without meds, so I credit JUDDD for the good BP reading, but it's nice to know that the green coffee bean didn't spike it.

Don't know of my body was ready to release wt on its own with Judd or if GCBE had an effect on this.. I will continue to take this and report my findings. I am loving this woe so far!!

That's great, Tag! I am down 1 and 1 /2 pounds this morning after upping my DD calories to 750-800 and my UD to 2300 this week, so not sure if it's the new rotation or the GCBE. Noted a nice surge in energy yesterday evening. Blood pressure has been great.

I have dreadful insomnia so I am leery of anything that people says gives them energy! I know it sounds silly, but I really don't want anything that gives me too much energy, especially after 7-8pm.

As I mentioned before, I already have a couple bottles on hand (for diabetes) but had only been taking 1 or 2 (200mg) a day. I'm going to try the 800mg 2×day & see what happens.

PS: I have enough for 13 days.

I did wake in the middle of the night for a couple of hours, so I'm hoping for a good night's sleep tonight. Will take this one day at a time. Love the appetite control. I had a small breakfast and feel I can easily wait until lunch for something to eat.

Correct.. no fillers from pure health. Naturally,, they say they are Vegetarian capseules.. that was the only other thing they say other than.. green coffe been extract,, i love the way it gives me a lil boost of energy.. and i am a full time advid coffe drinker any way.. so i wonder if i would feel any thing but it just feel like.. "peppy" like every thing in the world is good kind of feeling.. not the kind you get when you have had to much coffee with no food feeling.. if that makes any sence..

I don't feel a boost of energy and I am not a coffee drinker. Boy would I like to feel energy from it! I did have an UUAD yesterday and am only up 1 lb. no way to know if this suppliment had any impact on this. Yesterday was first UUAD, don't want to do that again anytime soon.

I have been taking this for about a month now-I credit it with getting my scale to finally dip into the 160's after a very long stall but perhaps it was just time for that to happen as I have not seen any other weight loss since that dip. I do not see an increase in energy-but I am pretty high energy as it is and really need something to slow me down not speed me up ROFL!! Will keep you folks updated if further weight loss occurs!

So lynn.. for the last month,,it dipped for you and then what it stopped? I will finish my short supply in two days.. and it seamed to move my scale for me.. but as you say not sure if it was time or was it the suppliment.. I will check in tommorw, and if i stay the same again after an up day like it did befoe than i can attribute it to taking this pill.. will check back in tomorw

Yesterday I took it after waking up (6am) and then again around 1pm.
Didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.

Today I took it after waking up but after a couple hours took a nap (so that's good--maybe it won't give me insomnia); when I woke up later, I took my blood sugar and it was only 112! It is usually 125-160!!!

Of course, this could be a fluke, but I will keep an eye on it and hope to see more improvements.

On principle, I don't like spending money on weight loss supplements (could save money by eating less AND not buying pills, lol) but if there's something helps with diabetes, energy, liver metabolism, etc...it might be worth it!

Great news on your blood glucose reading, Jenny! I am down four pounds since taking gcbe starting last weekend and upping my rotation to 800/2400. So, I'll keep up with the gcbe and rotation for now, as my rotation is virtually painless now.
