Green Coffee Bean Extract???

I was at my local hfstore and the ladies said they couldn't keep this on the shelves. Well, it is a Dr. Oz thing, of course..

So, I just bought a bottle to try out..Let you know if it works.

Do keep an eye on your blood pressure. I took it for a couple months and mine went up (from around 115/70 to about 140/85), enough to get my doctor's attention last time I was in. As soon as I ditched the GCBE, my BP dropped back down to its normal lows. Caffeine effect, no doubt.

I think I was doing it wrong...duh..

Today I started taking my 800 mg 30 minutes before eating instead of with my food.

See how this week goes.. I took 2 of them today.

I took them for a bit. I saw no noticeable results. Then I realized that it works when you eat basically carbs!! At least that is what I remember reading (I may be wrong on that, but it works with blood sugar). That is why it didn't work---I eat low carb LOL. Anyway, I would love to hear your thoughts on it Carolyn. Keep us posted.

I love my GCBE. I have been taking it for several weeks now. I lost 4 pounds the first week. The lady I work with lost 2 pounds. It actually keeps my Blood Pressure low, and acts like an appetite suppressent. It also stops and prevents headaches for me. I can lose weight easier with my woe when using GCBE. I do eat carbs, so maybe that is why it works so well for me.

I ordered some today after someone at work was talking about it. From what I've read it's suppose to stabilize blood sugar and could reduce cholesterol. If it lowered my blood sugar a bit and I could reduce my insulin a little, it would make me a happy camper!

Sorry I just got back to this forum, Carolyn. No, I did not lose a bit of weight while on it. It just spiked my blood pressure apparently. I'm back down to 110's/60-70 now that I suspended taking it.

What to look for when buying GCBE:
Svetol or GCA
At least 45% Chlorogenic Acid
Dosage=400mg 3x per day 30 min before meal
Zero fillers, zero binders, zero artificial ingredients
30 day supply= $30

GCBE also made my blood pressure go up plus immediately gaining 5lbs. Course, that wasn't real weight, but it was sure screwing up my body. I took it as prescribed plus drank plenty of water. It also kept me up at night. Granted, I have a sleep problem as it is, but that made it worse.

I've read of some good results so started out pretty positive about future results. NOT! Waste of money! It seems to work hit and miss unless what I had read were fake planted posts. Speaking about other sources, not here.

I've started on Total Lean and my weight is now back where it was before my hiatus with GCBE! I believe that product will work for me as it's low carb.

I am going to back to taking the green coffee extract. I have the bottle so why not? I hope I see a difference when taking it. Even just appetite suppression would be good and worth it LOL.

I have not been taking it. I just finished a round of hcg and am on P3. Have not started using any supplements yet. I am trying to just be stable right now and by week's end I should be done with P3 and onto P4. I still have the bottle!! I will try it, but not right now.
