Green Coffee Bean Extract – A Powerful Weight Loss Aid?

As we’ve discussed at length in the past, many people struggle to lose weight on their own.  A lot of the recipes we advise here center around delicious foods that are easy to make, and also low in calories.  This is always an essential part to any weight loss.  However, many natural treatments have been developed in recent years in an effort to address the growing weight problem within the USA among its citizenry.  It’s difficult to not only stay in shape, but to lose weight once it’s been gained as well.

Green Coffee BeansA new method studied within the last few years is the use of green coffee beans to help promote weight loss.  Yes, this food does contain caffeine which has been shown before to help people lose weight in general.  This is not, however, the only reason scientists are taking a long hard look at this food for use in obesity treatments.  It’s been found that these beans actually carry with them significant compounds and antioxidants that can really help people lose weight if taken on a daily basis.  Not only do they help increase metabolism but they will also help to decrease the user’s appetite.  This has been a source for much recent investigation.

Coffee beans are typically roasted, which removes much of these ingredients from the bean.  Primarily the act of roasting destroys some of the complex proteins and antioxidants due to heat.  This can be a problem, as one of the few things remaining are simple molecules like caffeine which can survive the process.  Green coffee, if taken daily, can help people replace many of these lost characteristics, but also help people lose weight quickly as a result.  Taking roasted beans via your normal daily coffee will not be enough to receive these great benefits on its own.

-The Results from Daily Green Coffee Bean Use

Coffee has for centuries been roasted and used for its caffeine to help enable people to work harder, concentrate better, and have increased energy.  However, the major benefits it offers have been lost via the roasting process.  Recently a lot of researchers have tested out patients how take green coffee supplements each day, but don’t change their diet at all.  A recent study found that those taking green coffee extract will lose 20 to 30 pounds per 60 days of doing so.  This didn’t require any change to the individual’s diet or other changes to their circumstances.

The HCG diet, for example, does offer superior results.  However, people need to follow a strict protocol throughout.  With Green Coffee beans, people can simply take the supplement and go about their normal routines.  Though you do need to have a normal diet (around 2000 calories per day) to see success, the success will come regardless of any changes in diet beyond that level.  This is unique, and is one of the reasons so many scientists and physicians now recommend it for use in obese patients.  It has a lot of support among the scientific community and has proven to be a highly effective weight loss method.

Selecting Healthy Foods that Offer Low Calories and Positive Impact

It’s true that there are many options when it comes to what foods to eat, and what recipes are best. There are no limitations really to what a person can eat and still be healthy (within reason). Instead, dieting and the recipes selected need to reflect the person’s own tastes and also their ability to stick to certain foods without breaking the habit. It doesn’t help anyone if they start on a diet and then shed most of the weight they want, but the whole time they hate the foods they are eating. The chances of them gaining back that weight in the long term is actually extremely high because their habits have not truly changed.

What people need to keep in mind is that baby steps towards weight loss often require finding recipes that are not only healthy, but are tasty as well.  These will allow you to stick to a diet but still enjoying food and remaining full.  Additionally, many people are too busy to really cook elaborate meals, which is often a requirement to eat healthy.  However, there are also some fast and easy recipes that take 10-15 minutes which can change a person’s life with the right attitude.  These recipes fix a lot of the gorging that people do on fatty foods, but they’re delicious as well.

Some Simple and Healthy Choices

incredible dinner optionsThere’s certainly some preferences for recipes that are fast and easy, however, we find that some of the best ones are those that can take only a few minutes to prepare.

Cold Curry Chicken Salad

It’s true that we try to limit recommendations for salads, as they tend to lead to blandness in a person’s diet, but if protein is added they are usually extremely tasty.


  • 100 grams of chopped chicken, 1 apple diced, Celery diced up into small pieces, 1/4 cup of water, 2  tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of minced onions, 1 whole clove of garlic crushed and minced to preference, 1/4 teaspoon of curry powder, dash of turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and onion powder to taste.

In order to prepare this, it’s necessary to saute the chicken in a small sauce pan with the lemon juice until it’s turned a golden brown color.  Add the water and spices you chose, continuing to stir well during this time.  Leave it on a low heat and stir until the liquid reduces to a foamy coating over the ingredients and the chicken’s been fully cooked.  Add water if you need more liquidity to the final product.  Finally add in the apple and celery (if you used it) and serve over a green salad with lettuce of your choice.  This recipe supplies only around 200-250 calories but is a huge amount of food.  It also only takes about 10 minutes generally for people to prepare it.
