Dr. Oz on Weight Loss

On Facebook today, Dr. Oz posted the following message:

“You might have seen our show in May on green coffee bean extract. If you've tried it, tell me about your experience in the comments section below.”

Approximately 2 hours following the post, 300 replies followed of which one-half responded to the post stating directly their personal opinion of whether or not the green coffee bean extract diet helped them lose weight. While the tally of the results is not a controlled statistical analysis of the available data, it does provide readers who are considering whether or not to try the supplement a sense of a sampling of what some dieters are discovering about the green coffee bean extract promoted on the Dr. Oz Show.

Last May on an episode of the Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz and special guest Lindsey Duncan told viewers that scientific studies have shown that consuming an extract of unroasted green coffee beans can result in significant weight loss in obese individuals.

This claim was the result of announcement at the 243rd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), where researchers revealed a startling finding from a weight loss study that showed how that an extract from green (unroasted) coffee beans resulted in significant weight loss in obese participants in a short period of time.

Lindsey Duncan told Oz viewers that the green coffee bean extract’s magic is believed to work through a natural chemical compound called “chlorogenic acid” that is present in unroasted coffee beans, but is broken down into an inactive form when roasted and brewed as coffee.

The chlorogenic acid is reported to work by boosting the metabolism or the “burning” of fat in the liver and inhibiting the release of glucose in the body— two mechanisms that work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain.

The attractiveness of this green coffee bean extract is that it is simple to take and does not require added exercise or a change in diet. Recommendations for taking the extract were to take one pill twice a day, 30 minutes before breakfast and dinner with a large glass of water. Two recommended sources of green coffee bean extract supplements by Mr. Lindsey Duncan were “Pure Green Coffee Bean” 400mg vegetarian capsules by the manufacturer Pure Health and Genesis Today’s "100% pure Green Coffee Bean capsules.”

In the scientific study, low doses (700 mg) and high doses (1,050 mg) were given daily to the study participants during a 22-week long study. The researchers reported that the participants lost an average of 17 pounds that consisted of an average of a 10.5 percent decrease in overall body weight and a 16 percent decrease in body fat.

So how did Dr. Oz’s fans do according to Facebook? Out of the first 300 replies of which approximately 150 stated whether the green coffee bean extract works in the opinion of the user, here are the numbers:

Number of users who believe the pill worked for them toward losing weight: 35

Number of users who believe the pill did not work for them toward losing weight: 85

Of the remaining respondents who did not clearly state whether or not that they believed it resulted in weight loss, 16 stated that it did increase their energy; 6 stated that it curbed their appetite; and 17 complained of side effects that included experiencing “the jitters,” stomach pain and heart palpitations.

To be clear, these results are just a rough approximation of what the respondents reported to the post. Factors such as subjectiveness of the replies, the actual source(s) of the green coffee bean extract taken and other confounders are not considered in the tally.

I've been taking the Green Coffee Bean Extract every since Dr. Oz first aired the product; and I've had great results from the product. No jitters, and I don't get along with coffee. My weight loss has been very slow but consistant as long as I take them daily at the same time. Good luck to those of you who are still working with the product. It will work!! Phyllis ₯
Yes, but you seem to be the only message I see on this board. How long have you been taking them and how much have you lost? It's quite expensive and I have to wonder if it's just one more hype gimmick and someone is getting rich on the other end.
I have been taking it since september 3, 2012 exactly a week today and I have lost 6 pounds. I take it twice a day with a bottle of water. No jitters or pain yet. I'm loving the results so far.
can i pick this product up in a retail store?
Im not sure if it can be purchased in the store. I ordered my straight from the Dr.Oz show by logging into his show for the green Coffee bean extract. It was $53 dollars for two bottles.
You can get it at GNC or Walmart is what I've found so far with GNC more expensive.

thanks for the input guys! Starting today. :) #EXCITED
Did you loose weight with this?
You can also find various brands at reasonable prices at Amazon.com. I'd get the cheapest I can find made by a company I know and trust, though, because who knows if this works? I'd think it would be a;; over the news if it really did.
Dr. Oz DOES NOT promote or sell any products. If you watch the video from his show on 9/10 he makes this very clear.
No Dr. Oz does not promote it like that. let me get it clear. When you watch the video at the bottom of the page you can can click on the link to order it. It then transfer you to the ordering page. THANK YOU
I picked up a bottle of PURE HEALTH - Pure Green Coffee Bean @ Sam's this weekend for $19.99. It contains 90 Vegtarian Capsules 400/mg each. The only ingredient it list is Green Coffee Bean Extract. Let's see what happens!
How much have you lost?
I bought the ones at SAM's too about two weeks ago. I have lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks. I had started eating healthier and had only lost 2 lbs in a week after I started the pills it jump started my weight loss. I usually lose the most in the first week, which was not the case this time. Total lost 11lbs. I've got more energy and feel less hungry
I too bought the Pure Health vegetarian capsules at Sam's Club for $19.99. I've lost 2.5 pounds in one week. No matter what you do you know you have to eat right to be healthy. I haven't even started to work out again yet. I drink 2 cups a coffee a day. I haven't felt jitters or a rush or anything. I might have a little bit more energy but not any side effects. I have 2 toddlers that I chase around everyday so I don't have time to sit still much. You can't sit around and eat bon bons and have a bad diet, lets face it. I'm eating all the same foods I ate before. I'm still skeptical but at the same time I'm really excited. I'm middle aged and have put on weight around my middle that I never had before. I hope this helps me burn these fat cells.
I got mine at pulsetv.com for $9.95 they also have Garcinia Cambogia which is suppose to be even better..it is $19.99 for 3 bottles... I have been taking the GCB for almost a month and lost 28 lbs with no problems....but I weighed 340 lbs. you probably loose faster if you have more to loose...my sister took it for a week and lost 5 lbs and she is not over weight......I am also a diabetic and could not get my reading under 200, take GCB helped to bring it down to where it should be....can't wait til next month, hope to be under 300 lbs...I do have more energy and can get things done.....Good Luck everyone.....make sure you get the right type of pills....50%chlorogenic acid 800 mg, made in the USA...
Check out Wonderlabs
Sounds like those first 6 pounds must have been water weight. Good luck. I started taking them on 09/14/2012 and have dropped 0.4 pound.
I took it for One month. It gave me gas so bad it was embarrassing. I did not lose anything.
HI Phyllis, Can you please tell me whihc make or manufacturer's product you used which has most amount of CGA. Thanks
i have not lsot anything!
I've taken this for a week and only lost 1 lb. so far. Does it take a couple of weeks to kick in?
I love this product. I have been taking it about two weeks and three days. I have lost 10lbs. I do exercise and watch what i eat.
Good.job on your weight loss Its due.to your healthy eating habbits and.exorcise. Not the green.coffee.bean extract
Actually, its possible that it was the GCE because i take it so i can eat what i like and maintain my weight. This only works if u have real GCE though, not fake stuff
But where do you get the real pure coffee bean? Now in days everyday is just making fake ones and take your money =/
I meant * everybody Thanks
Well, I just get mine at Hyvee, Nature's pure green coffee bean extract I think, im not sure the name, just the bottle.
Which brand of pure green coffee bean extract have you had success with & if u dont mind me asking... where did u purchase it?
