Data Shows a Low Fat Diet May Not be All it's Chalked Up to be

Pop Quiz: What year were low fat dietary guidelines released and recommended to the American public? Any clue? Yeah I didn’t know the answer to this either. The answer is 1977, when the US Senate Select Committee released the Dietary Goals for the American people. These guidelines clearly stated to reduce consumption of fat and saturated fat. Common sense it seems to us today.

Second Question: When did the obesity epidemic in the U.S. really start to take off? If you guessed right after the 1977 recommendation then you guessed right. See the image below. Coincidence?

This doesn’t prove anything though, as we know this is just correlation. But think about it – we started to drop fatty foods like butter. These things had to be replaced though, right? So in steps the highly processed foods marketed specifically to be low fat. But guess what? They’re full of salt, sugar and tons of other ingredients that our bodies obviously don’t like. Watch the video below. Trust me, it will make you think and start questioning what you’ve been told about nutrition…

Obesity isn’t the only result of dropping fatty foods for processed ones, though. Heart disease and diabetes became more prevalent with the rise of commercial, lower-fat butter replacements and reduction of red meat consumed. The below image is from the above video (though I know you watched it, right?):

butter-replacements

Even though there have been many studies that show low-fat diets are not the way to lose weight or get healthy and even though these studies also show that there’s no reduction in your risk to heard disease – ask your doctor or even nutritionist. Chances are they’ll stick to their guns and recommend the now-traditional guidelines that were set into place all those years ago.

Why is that? Are they simply uneducated and still believe what they were taught 20 or 30 years ago in school? Or is there a bigger picture, here? Are the mega-pharmaceutical companies and health professionals enjoying the millions of dollars obesity brings in?

The British Medical Journey recently released information and opened the debate to the link between saturated fat and cardiovascular disease here. Just a quick quote:

“The mantra that saturated fat must be removed to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease has dominated dietary advice and guidelines for almost four decades. Yet scientific evidence shows that this advice has, paradoxically, increased our cardiovascular risks.”

Here are just a couple of the studies that clearly show a low-fat diet just may not be what we’re led to believe:

Low Fat Diet and Cardiovascular Disease

Low Fat Diet and Weight Change Over 7 Years

Of course, we aren’t saying go out and start eating everything high in saturated fat. We would say moderation is key. We aren’t scientists and certainly don’t claim to be. While everything here is based on well-established medical and scientific sites, we understand nothing can be written in stone and that there should still be active, in-depth research to understand what’s going on. However, use this info for what it’s worth and come to your own decision.

Triple Your Weight Loss with Meratrim

A recent Dr. Oz show featured a new weight loss supplement which has led to many vendors offering a variety of meratrim products. A company called InterHealth owns the trademark to this product. This is the reason there are many creative marketing solutions being used by vendors to cash in on the success of this supplement. Marketers selling the product without getting permission from InterHealth risk legal action.

The supplement contains two main ingredients that will affect weight loss. Consumers will find nutritional products with Sphaeranthus indicus and Garcinia mangostana will likely be a marketed for weight loss. There is likely to be many variations of this supplement coming to market in the coming weeks and months.

There are many differences touted by InterHealth between their product and Garninia cambogia. Many consumers can easily be confused between products with similar ingredients. One key difference about their supplement is showing an increase in adiponectin. This is a hormone in the body that is involved in fat metabolism. Most generic products on the market typically do not use branded ingredients as the cost is too high.

Consumers can find this weight loss supplement at many locations. Many nutritional shops will have a variety of products, such as Whole Foods and GNC. Another option for consumers will be to order this product online from the tyrmeratrim.com website. Many brands are approved to sell this supplement in retail stores or online.

This dietary supplement is just like other products on the market and means consumers will need to take the dose that is recommended. InterHealth suggests consumers take one 400mg dose twice a day. The best time to take the supplement is 30 minutes prior to having breakfast and dinner.

Consumers will need to decide for themselves if the product will help achieve desired results. Products that get a recommendation or mention by a well-known health expert often mean the product will often produce results. The results will typically vary based on factors that often include metabolism and how the body reacts to all the active ingredients.

The best way for consumes to benefit from meratrim is to follow the three-step plan from Dr. Oz when weight loss is necessary. Taking the dietary supplement regularly is the first step. The next step will be to increase protein intake to double current levels. Flushing fat from the body is the third step and requires drinking pomegranate vinegar after each meal.

Ultimate Green Coffee Extract – High price, SCARY product?

This brand is manufactured by phytogenix labs and sold by smaller web sites. This product may have some good quality Green Coffee extract, but they dilute it with all kinds of fillers and other artificial ingredients. To make it worse, it is often sold for $50 or more PER BOTTLE! A very inflated price for even the very best quality Green Coffee Bean extract, and this is certainly not the best quality.

The GOOD News

question-markOn the plus side, it is not used in the “Free Trial” scams, which are ALWAYS the worst quality product and should be avoided at all cost. We recommend people throw any of those products they may have in the trash. This is not one of those.

BUT… Now the BAD NEWS…

Very little actual Green Coffee in the capsule

Wow! From the label you see that 3 capsules has only 200 mg of green coffee extract. Why would you want to take 3 capsules and still only get 1/2 the mg of green coffee extract Dr Oz recommends? And, why would they put so little green coffee in a capsule? Seems like they want to fake you into thinking it is a good value when it is clearly NOT.

ultimate-green-coffe-stomach-painLots of fillers and other junk

Wow again! Look at the ingredients from their label below. That’s the biggest list of “stuff” we’ve seen yet on something that is supposed to be a healthy, natural product – NOT!.


*** IMPORTANT Note:
 We have had a few callers tell us they had purchased this brand and had stomach cramps after taking it. While this is not totally unheard of and could be a coincidence, it is very rare for users to have ANY side effects from taking green coffee bean extract, and have 3 callers report the same thing, possibly from some of the other substances they use to fill the capsule instead of just using pure green coffee extract.

Conclusion

Overall, we would give this brand a 2 thumbs down for being overpriced and of very dubious quality. Look elsewhere, you can easily find better quality and better price.

How 5htp helps you lose weight

When you start thinking about getting a wider bathroom mirror, you know you’re in trouble—especially if the present one goes wall-to-wall. And when the Post Office says it’s going to give you your own ZIP code, that does it. You stamp your foot, call a contractor to repair the hole you just made in the floor, and vow that you’re going to do something about all that flab. You want to be slim, sure, but how are you going to accomplish that? Well, duh—by losing weight, of course.

Americans have been losing a lot of weight lately. Unfortunately, most of it has been from their wallets. Compared to the weight-loss industry, there is probably no enterprise, with the possible exception of government, that promises so much to so many, yet delivers so little to so few—while raking in piles of money for consistently achieving near-total failure. You’ve probably heard it all before: diets don’t work, any weight loss won’t last, some diets are bogus, others are harmful, the “guarantees” are worthless, the promoters are crooks, etc. (Now you’ve heard it all again—sorry.)

The sad thing is, much of that is true. And despite our collective obsession with weight loss, we have become the earth’s fattest, least-fit people—including our kids—and it’s getting worse all the time. That’s great news for the weight-loss hucksters, whose skill at separating people from their money must make politicians green with envy, because these people fork it over willingly! (P. T. Barnum was right.)

Supplements Can Help with Weight Loss

supplementsSince the laws of physics have not been repealed lately, it bears repeating that there are only two ways to lose weight: (1) reduce energy intake (consume fewer calories), and (2) increase energy expenditure (burn more calories). Simple, no? Simple, not—it’s very hard for most people to do. It’s for the strong of heart and mind. It takes willpower and self-discipline, without which your chances of losing weight are about the same as those of Congress being seized by a sudden attack of ethical behavior.

Fortunately, though, the laws of chemistry haven’t been repealed either, and there are ways in which your willpower and self-disciplined efforts to take in fewer calories and burn off more calories can be augmented by the reactions of certain nutritional supplements. Let’s look at two of them: 5-HTP, which helps reduce energy intake, and EGCG (from green tea), which helps increase energy expenditure.

5-HTP Suppresses Appetite

In the human body, the amino acid 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is the immediate precursor to one of the brain’s most important neurotransmitters, serotonin. Serotonin helps to regulate mood, sleep, and appetite, among other things. In cases of serotonin deficiency (which can arise in different ways), there is a tendency to become depressed, to sleep poorly, and to overeat. It is believed, e.g., that genetically induced serotonin deficiency is a common factor in obesity, and there is no doubt that this compound has a major influence on eating behavior.1

It almost goes without saying that when you have a deficiency of some substance, you should try to correct it by supplementing with that very substance—or, in some cases, with a precursor substance, which is sometimes more desirable. To correct serotonin deficiency, it’s preferable to take not serotonin itself, but 5-HTP.* Your body converts much of it to serotonin, which is found not only in the brain but also in relatively high concentrations in blood platelets and in the intestinal wall. (Serotonin is a powerful stimulant of smooth muscle and may play a role in promoting intestinal peristalsis.) By boosting brain serotonin levels, 5-HTP helps create a feeling of satiety (fullness), thus suppressing appetite. Hence, energy intake is reduced (weight-loss key #1).

*Although it occurs naturally in the human body, 5-HTP is obtained for use as a supplement from the seeds of an African plant, Griffonia simplicifolia. It is the identical molecule.

5-HTP Reduces Caloric Intake

Most of the clinical studies on the use of 5-HTP for weight loss were done by a group of Italian researchers at the University of Rome in the early 1990s. In one such study on 19 obese women (a 5-week, double-blind, crossover trial in which each woman served as her own control), 79% of the women reported a decrease in appetite while taking 5-HTP.2 This was borne out by measurements of their actual caloric intake: it was found that supplementation with 5-HTP reduced the women’s daily intake by 508 calories—a 22% reduction compared with placebo. Over the 5-week period, the women lost an average of 3.1 lb with 5-HTP, vs. 0.9 lb with placebo. The amount of 5-HTP used daily (taken in three divided servings) was 3.6 mg per pound of body weight; this corresponds to a total of 450 mg per day for a 125-lb woman, or 900 mg per day for a 250-lb woman.

5-HTP Produces Weight Loss, Diet or Not

In a second study, the Italian researchers put 14 obese women on a 1200-calorie/day diet for 6 weeks.3 Some were given 300 mg of 5-HTP 30 minutes before meals (a total of 900 mg per day), while the others were given placebo. Over the 6-week period, the women taking 5-HTP lost 6.8 lb, on average, compared with 1.5 lb for the women on placebo.

In the same study, the researchers had previously tested the same women during a 6-week period in which they were given the same daily 5-HTP (or placebo) regimen, but without any dietary restrictions. Over that 6-week period, the average weight loss was less (not surprisingly), but still appreciable: 3.5 lb with 5-HTP and 1.1 lb with placebo. Thus, with or without dietary restrictions, the women in this study lost substantial amounts of weight (10.3 lb total) while taking 5-HTP—4 times as much as with placebo (2.6 lb total).

5-Fold Greater Weight Loss with 5-HTP

In yet a third study, of essentially the same design as the one just discussed, but with 20 obese women, the Italian researchers found that 300 mg of 5-HTP taken 30 minutes before meals resulted in a 6-week weight loss of 7.3 lb with 5-HTP vs. 1.8 lb with placebo when the women were on the restrictive 1200-calorie/day diet.4 Without the diet, the women had 6-week weight losses of 3.7 lb and 0.6 lb, respectively. Thus, the total weight losses over the 12-week period of this study were 11 lb with 5-HTP and 2.4 lb with placebo—a nearly 5-fold difference. The 11-lb weight loss represented 5% of the women’s starting weight of 220 lb.

“. . . oral administration of the
green tea extract stimulated
thermogenesis and fat oxidation
and thus has the potential to
influence body weight and
body composition . . . .”

In this third study, 5-HTP also produced dramatic results in terms of the women’s feelings of early satiety, i.e., feeling full earlier than usual during a meal. When the women were not on the restrictive diet, 100% of those who were taking 5-HTP reported early satiety. Even when they were on the diet, however (but taking 5-HTP), this feeling persisted: the figure then was a remarkable 90%. Clearly, the feeling of early satiety led the women to eat less than usual, resulting in the weight losses observed.

Slow Buildup Is Best with 5-HTP

In the studies discussed above, about two-thirds of the women reported mild nausea while taking these very large doses (up to 900 mg/day) of 5-HTP; in the second and third studies, nausea occurred during the first 6 weeks but not during the second 6 weeks. In real life, the easy way to avoid nausea caused by 5-HTP is to start with a small amount and build it up gradually over a period of 2 weeks; this is sufficient time to allow the body to adjust, and thereafter the supplement is well tolerated.5

5htp for weight loss – according to Doctors

A new weight loss supplement is gaining tremendous interest. In fact, Dr Oz just featured it on his show. It’s called 5HTP (5 Hydroxytryptophan) and it might just be what you need to finally lose weight. In fact, it’s considered one of the very best natural appetite suppressants.

5htp-amazed-woman5HTP Benefits

Besides weight loss, 5htp has long been used and studied for a variety of reasons. It has proved to be useful in alleviating a broad range of health problems including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders and panic attacks
  • Alcoholism
  • PMS
  • Obesity
  • Eating disorders such as bulimia
  • Oses­sive-compulsive disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Uncontrollable violent impulses.

All of these conditions have been successfully treated with 5–HTP. There are indications that these conditions may, in certain instances, be caused by underly­ing brain dysfunction that might be improved by 5HTP.

A significant body of evidence supporting these claims has been acquired over the past 35 years in human clinical trials and animal experiments. 5HTP itself does not directly perform any specific function in the body. 5HTP’s only known role is to serve as the precursor, or raw material that some cells use to create the neurotransmitter serotonin.

How Does 5HTP Help You Lose Weight?

Like we said, your body actually produces this chemical. It’s then converted into serotonin. The serotonin is then used to curb your appetite and improve your mood… and you lose weight. To get the most benefit from it, doctors are recommending an actual 5HTP supplement vs a serotonin one.

Why? The serotonin can’t access your brain directly from the bloodstream like 5HTP can and that’s needed in order to increase the levels of serotonin in your brain.

When you have higher levels of serotonin in your brain, your hunger dissipates and you actually feel fuller more often. There’s a study that showed women reducing the amount of carbs they ate naturally. They didn’t even realize it, as they weren’t purposely trying to do so.

5htp-warningsHow Safe is 5HTP?

Doctors agree that it’s perfectly safe for most people to use for limited time periods (12 weeks being the maximum). It occurs naturally in your body, so it isn’t like you’re introducing foreign substances. There is an exception, though.

  • They say that if you have gastrointestinal problems, you should talk to your doctor first. That’s because some people have reported gastrointestinal side effects like abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.
  • You should also avoid it if you’re on antidepressants like MAOI or if you’re suffering from bipolor disorder/severe depression. 5HTP could in some cases increase suicidal thoughts and depression.
  • You shouldn’t use it if you’re pregnant, think you might be pregnant or if you’re breastfeeding.

Before buying 5HTP, make sure you aren’t already taking something that could be negatively increasing your serotonin levels. If you’re on any kind of medication, ask your doctor about it.

History of 5htp for weight loss

5htp-historyAs far back as 1975, researchers demonstrated that administering 5HTP to rats that were bred to overeat and be obese resulted in significant reduction in food intake (6). It turns out that these rats have decreased activity of the enzyme that converts tryptophan to 5HTP and subsequently to serotonin. In other words, these rats are fat as a result of a genetically determined low level of activity of the enzyme that starts the manufacture of serotonin from tryptophan. As a result, these rats never get the message to stop eating until they have consumed far greater amounts of food than normal rats.

There is much circumstantial evidence that many humans are genetically predisposed to obesity. This predisposition may involve the same mechanism as that observed in rats genetically predisposed to obesity. In other words, many people may be predisposed to being overweight because they have a decreased conversion of tryptophan to 5HTP and, as a result, decreased serotonin levels. By providing preformed 5HTP, this genetic defect is bypassed and more serotonin is manufactured. 5HTP literally turns off hunger (7).

5ht-doctor-research-15HTP Research

This isn’t something that we’ve just recently discovered, although it may just now start receiving a lot of attention. It’s actually been studied for more than 30 years. There have been clinical trials that prove just how effective it is at reducing the amount of calories that you eat.

Lost Over 10 Pounds in 12 Weeks

One study took overweight women and gave some of them 200mg of 5HTP to take just before eating. The other women were given a placebo instead. The participants that were taking the real 5HTP managed to lose over ten pounds in merely 12 weeks. Those who were taking a placebo? They lost just over two pounds. After further study, weight loss experts say that this is a supplement that usually works best if you’re they type who constantly craves food (carbs in particular).

The early animal studies that used 5HTP as a weight loss aid have been followed by a series of three human clinical studies of overweight women, conducted at the University of Rome (8-10). The first study showed that 5HTP was able to reduce caloric intake and promote weight loss despite the fact that the women made no conscious effort to lose weight (8). The average amount of weight loss during the five-week period of 5HTP supplementation was a little more than 3 pounds.

full-tummy-bellyCompletely Satisfied Despite Low Calorie Diet

The second study sought to determine whether 5HTP helped overweight individuals adhere to dietary recommendations (9). The twelve-week study was divided into two six-week periods. For the first six weeks, there were no dietary recommendations; for the second six weeks the women were placed on a 1,200-calorie diet. As shown in Table 1, the women who took the placebo lost 2.28 pounds, while the women who took the 5HTP lost 10.34 pounds. As in the previous study, 5HTP appeared to promote weight loss by promoting satiety-the feeling of satisfaction-leading to fewer calories being consumed at meals. Every woman who took the 5HTP reported early satiety.

Impressive Weight Loss Even With No Dieting

In the third study involving 5HTP, for the first six weeks there were no dietary restrictions, and for the second six weeks the women were placed on a 1,200-calorie-per-day diet (10). The results from this study were even more impressive than the previous studies for several reasons. The group that received the 5HTP had lost an average of 4.39 pounds at six weeks and an average of 11.63 pounds at 12 weeks (They lost even without dieting in the first half of the study!). In comparison, the placebo group had lost an average of only 0.62 pounds at six weeks and 1.87 pounds at twelve weeks. The lack of weight loss during the second six-week period in the placebo group obviously reflects the fact that the women had difficulty adhering to the diet.

Feel Fuller – Faster!

Early satiety was reported by 100 percent of the subjects during the first six-week period. During the second six-week period, even with severe caloric restriction, ninety percent of the women taking 5HTP reported early satiety. Many of the women who received the 5HTP (300 mg three times per day) reported mild nausea during the first six weeks of therapy. However, the symptom was never severe enough for any of the women to drop out of the study. No other side effects were reported.

No known health risks from taking 5htp

In September 1997, the popular weight loss drug Redux and its chemical cousin fenfluramine, part of the “fen-phen” combination, were taken off the market based on a study showing that these drugs may have caused permanent damage to heart valves in as many as one-third of the people who took them. There is no evidence that 5HTP produces these effects. Unlike Redux, 5HTP does not raise blood serotonin levels to a significant degree nor does it block reuptake of serotonin. The point here is that 5HTP does not disrupt the normal process of serotonin release, reabsorbtion, and elimination from the body. 5HTP is not a synthetic drug; it is an amino acid produced naturally by your body’s metabolism.

Warning About Low Quality 5HTP

Don’t simply buy the cheapest one you find. This goes for any supplement, but especially 5HTP.

A few years back there was a problem where some low-quality 5HTP supplements were contaminated with EMS (eosinophilia myalgia syndrome). It originated in impurities in the L-tryptophan. So you need to make sure you’re getting a quality product.

Also, there are many fly by night websites that sell products that don’t even have any of the active ingredients they claim. This is most common of websites that pay for traffic (the sites listed at the right side of Google and Bing search results). Nearly all of the scam websites are found there, as they can easily disappear tomorrow and their victims cannot find them again.

Where to Find 5HTP Supplements

This is not a new product, and you can find this supplement in many health food stores or online. Just remember that a quality product is worth a little extra. You should expect to pay up to about $20-$40 a bottle, depending on the quantity per capsule and capsules per bottle. Be very suspicious of any price too low – read the label very carefully and you will probably see it’s deceptive in some way – lots of fillers, or low mg per capsule, etc.

As you can hopefully tell, we take our research seriously. You should do the same – your health depends on it. If you simply don’t have the time, then we got you covered. Below you’ll find the ones that, after all our research, are the ones that we recommend.

Dr. Oz Show And Green Coffee Extract Study

greencoffeebeansIn 2012, the incredibly popular Dr Oz show has featured Green Coffee supplements as a diet aid a record breaking 3 times. Once in May, again on September 10, and repeating the Sept 10 show on Dec 27th.

The Original Study that Sparked the Fire

The study that spurred Dr. Lindsay Duncan and Dr. Oz to bring the news of a miracle weight loss pill to the Dr Oz show was actually very small. Published in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Journal, the study followed 16 overweight adults for 12 weeks.

Just by adding green coffee bean extract to their daily routine, they lost an amazing ten percent of their body weight and 16 percent body fat. More exactly, they lost an average of 17 pounds each over the course of the study.

They were directed not to change their eating or exercising habits. In fact, they were eating way more calories than what they burned off, so you would expect to see weight gain not weight loss. But that didn’t happen. They lost an amazing amount of weight without doing anything different other than taking the extract.

Dr Duncan appeared on the Dr Oz show in May 2012 to talk about this study and introduce the world to Green Coffee Extract as a weight loss supplement.

Dr. Oz Performs His Own Green Coffee Study

After the May episode, Green Coffee bean diet products really took off and thousands of people found success with it as a diet aid, prompting Dr Oz to investigate further.

On September 10th, Dr. Oz aired a groundbreaking show, revealing the study that he and his medical team had done and the results. This was the largest project that has ever been carried out for the show and the results once again prove just how effective green coffee extract is at helping you lose weight.


Tightly controlled, well supervised testing
The medical team that oversaw the study consisted of Kristin Kirkpatrick (a registered dietician)and Dr. Caroline Apovian. Together, they set up the ground rules and the structure of the study. 100 overweight women between the ages of 35 and 49 who had struggled with losing weight were brought in to be the test subjects. Their BMI ranged between 25 and 45. They wanted to minimize variants that could possibly influence the results, so the approval process for participating included several factors:

  • They couldn’t be breastfeeding
  • They couldn’t be pregnant
  • They couldn’t have any major medical problems like diabetes
  • They couldn’t have ever had a stroke or a heart attack

Each woman was given a bottle of pills, which was either the real coffee bean extract or a placebo.

  • 400 mg capsules, 3 times a day
  • No additional exercise
  • No changes to diet

They took one pill three times a day about 30 minutes before each meal (these were 400mg capsules, but you can also find them in 800mg so you don’t have to remember to take it as many times per day). Just like in the original study, they were asked not to make any changes to their diet or add any exercise. The women were required to keep a food journal to track everything that they were eating.

The Results

This study lasted for two weeks. Very simple and quick, as they wanted to test the effectiveness of the extract and get results quick. After two weeks, the women were brought in weighed and evaluated. They were all present on the show, seated in the audience. The women still didn’t know if they had been taking a placebo or the real deal.

After revealing which half of the audience had received the placebo and which half had been taking the extract, it was time to present the results. The results were clear.

Those taking the green coffee supplements lost TWICE as much weight as those that didn’t

The control group- those women who were taking placebo pills did lose on average 1 pound – probably due to the extra scrutiny they paid to what they ate over the test period. The other group lost 2 pounds over the 2 weeks test period. Not a huge amount, but definately significant and attained with NO effort.

Is Green Coffee Extract Right for You?

“There are no indications that green coffee bean extract has any harmful side effects” ~Dr. Oz

It should also be mentioned that there are apparently zero side effects. You might think you’d get the ‘jitters’ from caffeine, but there’s very little caffeine in this extract and not a single participant experienced any kind of jitteriness (is that a word?).

Green coffee extract is fine for any healthy adult who needs help losing weight. It isn’t recommended for anyone under the age of 18 (there hasn’t been any studies on younger people, so there’s not sufficient data to say it’s safe). Also, don’t take this extract if you’re breastfeeding or may be pregnant. Again, there just isn’t enough information available yet to show that it would be safe in those situations. Of course, if you’re allergic to caffeine or coffee then you shouldn’t take it.

“Green coffee bean extract has very little caffeine it, much less than is in coffee” ~Dr. Oz

Chlorogenic acid attacks and kills off fat cells. It also helps prevent new ones from forming. You don’t have to eat any kind of special diet or add any more e xercise into your lifestyle that you don’t already do (if you do any at all). Simply by taking an extract like Svetol® green coffee bean extract three times per day before meals, you’ll start dropping pounds.

Green coffee bean extract is taken from coffee beans in their raw form. They’re never put through a roasting process. These coffee beans have an antioxidant inside called chlorogenic acid, which is where the magic comes from – not caffeine. In fact, there’s very little caffeine at all in green coffee beans. When green coffee beans are roasted, the chlorogenic acid is destroyed. So don’t think you’re going to lose weight by drinking “green” coffee drinks.

Buying Green Coffee Bean Extract

“Not all green coffee is created equal” ~Dr. Oz

If you’re going to buy green coffee extract, buyer beware. Dr Oz was very upset about the explosion of websites selling extract that doesn’t contain enough of the chlorogenic acid or is simply filled with filler ingredients. He made it very clear that he doesn’t endorse ANY particular brand, but did give some very clear direction on how to be sure you get quality product that will produce results. According to Dr Oz, look for green coffee Extract that:

  • List Svetol® on the label
  • Has at LEAST 45% Chlorogenic Acid
  • Has ZERO fillers or additives
  • at LEAST 400 mg per capsule

You should be looking at the labels and reading the ingredients. To be effective, you need to ensure that any extract you buy has a minimum of 45 percent chlorogenic acid. If the supplier isn’t providing you a way to actually see and read the ingredients, then don’t buy it.

Make sure it specifically says “No fillers” and “No artificial ingredients”. Many companies call their green coffee extract “pure”, but don’t get duped. This doesn’t really mean anything. Read the label. Read the ingredients.

Our Recommendation

You can find cheaper products that may save you a few dollars, but are full of cheap fillers or crappy product and might not work…

We take pride in offering only the highest quality products. Our green coffee extract has:

  • Svetol
  • 50% Chlorogenic Acid
  • NO fillers or additives
  • 800 mg per capsule

Every month it seems there’s a new secret to weight loss. But truth is, we already know many secrets to burning fat and they’re all found right in your local grocery store. No, it isn’t as expensive as you might thing to eat healthy and you may be surprised at some of the “skinny foods” you’ve been missing out on. Remember we’re talking about real food here. Not diet foods. These are foods that will naturally help you lose weight and get rid of cravings. Foods that will burn fat and stop your body from storing new fat. Do you want to know what they are? Keep reading.

Beans, a True Fat Buster

Beans are the first one our list because of three reasons. First, they’re an exception fat burning food. Two, there are so many kinds of beans that finding ones you like and finding ways to use them is super easy. They’re so versatile! You can eat them as-is, you can make soup, add them to salads or use in meat recipes… the possibilities are almost endless. Three, they’re amazingly affordable. For a couple bucks you can grab a bag that lasts for weeks.

Beans have what we call resistant starch, which means that half the calories in them will never be absorbed by your body. So half the calories you get from beans will never have the chance of being stored as fat.

Eating beans has also been associated with a decrease in body fat, due to the fatty acid butyrate that’s found within beans. Fatty acid butyrate has also been known to control cell damage that can lead to cancer.

Gas? What gas? The gas you sometimes get from eating beans will go away as you start to include them more often in your diet. Your body will begin to build up the good bacteria that’s used to properly digest them.

Fool Yourself into Being Full with Pine Nuts

Pine nuts are on our list because of the fat in them called pinolenic. Pinolenic causes two other powerful hormones to be created: glucagon-like peptide and cholecystokinin. When these hormones are present, your body thinks it’s full because they tell your brain your stomach is full.

In one study that looked at how this worked, women who ate pine nuts started eating dramatically less. Their hunger subsided and they ate 36 percent less than they previously did. And you don’t have to eat a lot of them to get this effect, either.

Eating enough pine nuts to fill up a shot glass is plenty enough to get the benefits of them. Decrease hunger. Eat less. Lose weight.

Pine nuts are also a very good source of protein.

Skip the Morning Munchies with Fennel Tea

Fennel tea is an amazing late-night drink just before you head off to bed. Drinking fennel tea right before beddie-bye time has several benefits, actually. One of the main reasons people like to drink it is because it wards off those infamous first-thing-in-the-morning cravings. You don’t wake up as famished as you normally would and can therefore make a much more sensible breakfast decision.

Your body will absorb nutrients better, digest foods easier and more effectively and you won’t store as much fat. Pretty powerful stuff, huh?

Meaty Crimini Mushrooms Provide Massive Protein

Crimini mushrooms are the perfect mushroom to add to any kind of meat dish you create. By taking out some of the meat and replacing it with this yummy, meat-flavored mushroom you can instantly transform a dish. It becomes healthier and you don’t have to give up any taste. No blandness here. Crimini mushrooms are high in fiber, so it’ll fill you up quicker and you’ll be cutting fat at the same time.

These “baby-bellas” (little portabellas) have even been shown to ward off the possibility of breast cancer. Researchers say they just might be the answer to increasing your immune system so that your body can prevent the formation of tumors.

Apples Keep the Fat Away

Do you always eat a salad before dinner? If so, you should start topping it with fresh chunks of apple. Apples are powerful fruits for anyone who wants to lose weight. What makes apples so special is the pectin inside them – a fiber that reduces the amount of sugars and calories that your body absorbs when eating.

Maintaining a steady blood glucose sugar level that isn’t too high is important to your  health and weight loss. Apples do this, too. You won’t go through spikes and crashes due to your blood sugar level jumping up and down, which means less cravings and sudden urges to eat.

Raspberry Ketone to Take Charge of Your Metabolism

Everyone wants to magically increase their metabolism and that’s just what raspberry ketone can do. You have something called adiponectin in your body, which is responsible for regulating your metabolism. Raspberry ketone, naturally found in raspberries, controls the level of adiponectin in your body.

It pretty much destroys fat cells and helps prevent new ones from forming in the first place. Though it’s naturally found in raspberries, you won’t get enough raspberry ketone from eating raw raspberries. There is only trace amounts of it found in each one, so you’d be looking at eating 90 pounds of raspberries per day to get enough raspberry ketone for these benefits.

Instead, you’ll need to find a raspberry ketone supplement to use.

Kill the Cravings with Chili Peppers

Have you ever noticed that when you’re eating something spicy with chili peppers that are you aren’t likely to be craving other foods? Chili peppers have a compound in them called casaicin, which will kick your metabolism up a notch because of the increase in body temperature they create. They also reduce your appetite.

Just add some good ole’ chili pepper sauce to your meals and enjoy a reduced appetite and increase in metabolism. Of course, you could eat them raw… but would you really want to?

Blocking Carbs with Vinegar

Vinegar helps you keep blood sugar levels under control. If you love starchy foods then vinegar is a must-have addition to your diet. It helps slow down the absorption of carbohydrates. There are all kinds of different vinegars out there, as well as delicious vinaigrettes that go well with a variety of foods. Find the one that you like and add it to your meals, especially pastas and potatoes. Making your own vinaigrette only requires a few ingredients in most cases and is simple and cheap.

The Skinny on Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are one of the newer foods that have been getting a lot of attention lately, especially among those who are trying to follow plant based diets. They’re little fiber superstars, they are. Including chia seeds in your food (or drinks) will help you stay feeling fuller much longer and can help reduce cholesterol levels. They also help prevent the storage of fat.

Chia seeds can be added to all types of dishes and many people simply make a refreshing drink to get their daily intake of them. One easy way is to throw a lemon slice in a bottle of water, add a touch of pomegranate juice or agave and throw in some chia seeds.

Old but Reliable Green Tea

At one time, green tea was the superstar in the weight loss world. Though it may not be plastered all over the evening news like it once was, that doesn’t mean that it’s lost any of its weight loss powers. To feel fuller and reduce the cravings/snacking that you would likely experience otherwise, just sip on green tea between meals.

Over time, its power is increased. So the longer you keep using green tea, the more it will help. Over time, your body will start changing how it deals with cravings. Your body won’t store as much fat as it once did and you’ll be metabolizing the food you eat more effectively.

Omega-3 Superstars – Pepitas

Never heard of pepitas? I bet you have. Pepitas are just pumpkin seeds and squash seeds. Both of these seeds can be roasted in the oven and eaten or added to your favorite salad for some hefty health benefits. First of all, they’re packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are well known in the weight loss world, as well as the health industry as a whole.

Pepitas also give you lots of protein and magnesium. This is a powerful combination that decreases your appetite and cravings.

Red Lentils for a Fiber Fiesta

Getting your fiber each day is a breeze if you eat some red lentils. With as little as a cup of red lentils a day, you are getting three-fourths the fiber you should be getting. That’s a lot of fiber! Not only do you get a load of fiber with them, you will also be getting tons of protein. You can snack on them, replace the meat in one meal of the day or like a lot of people do, make red lentil soup.

Watermelon More than Just Fruit

Bet you didn’t know that watermelon was full of fiber and protein. Yep, this kid favorite packs a powerful punch that most people don’t even know about. In fact, they have so much fiber and protein that you could use watermelon in a meal instead of meat. Just like red lentils, a single cup will almost give you your daily allowance of fiber (three quarters of it).

Cinnamon & Spice?

Cinnamon is much more than sweet and spice. This spice is incredibly powerful for anyone trying to lose weight (who would have thought, right?). When you include cinnamon in your diet, food doesn’t pass through the stomach as fast. So next time you’re whipping up your favorite coffee drink, why  not put a dash of cinnamon in there? Double up on the foods from this list by thinly slicing apples, sprinkling with cinnamon and toasting them in the oven.

Drop Inches with Avocados

Wonder why Subway makes such a big deal out of avocados during avocado season? They’re powerful little things for your health and affordable (especially during their peak season). Avocados are super skinny food because of the monounsaturated fat found in them. Eat them for an amazing energy boost, to lose weight, burn fat and drop stubborn inches.

New, Little Known Superfoods for Weight Loss

The best thing for losing weight isn’t the latest magic pill that’s being hyped up across TV shows and news. In reality, if you want to lose weight the right way and be healthy, the very first place you should be looking is the grocery store. Here, we’ve put together a list of some of the main things you should be bringing home when you go to the grocery store and we think you might be surprised. We think you’ll be surprised at simplicity of these foods and how affordable they are, as well as just  how powerful they are at helping you lose weight.

Burning Fat With Beans

There are actually a lot reasons we’ve included beans at the top of our list. They’re super cheap. Just about anyone can afford a bag of beans. Most can be bought for merely a couple of bucks. They last a long time and are very versatile in the number of ways you can prepare them. There are the traditional bean soups, but if you like salads, many beans are great on salads. If you find you just can’t get used to and enjoy one kind, move on to the next! There are all kinds of beans you can try out.

Beans are an amazing fat buster thanks to the resistant starch and fatty acid butyrate found in beans. The resistant starch means that half the calories in beans will never be absorbed by your body. Secondly, the fatty acid butyrate will help you decrease the amount of body fat you have and some say, even possibly prevent some forms of cancer.

A lot of people associate eating beans with getting gas. The solution? Eat more beans. The more beans you eat, the more your body will build up a good bacteria that is used to effectively digest them.

Trick Your Brain into Being Full with Pine Nuts

Pine nuts contain a fat called pinolenic. This fat actually produces two super hormones that play a vital role in helping you lose weight. These hormones are called cholecystokinin and glucagon-like peptide. What’s so important about them? When these hormones are present, they send signals to your brain telling it that your stomach is full.

The result can be a very substantial appetite reduction. In one study, the participants were eating dramatically less after they started including pine nuts in their daily diet: Up to 36 percent less to be exact.

What’s even more impressive is that you don’t have to eat a lot of pine nuts to get this effect. Enough pine nuts to fill a shot glass are plenty to reduce your appetite and lose weight. Oh, and pine nuts also give you a good amount of protein.

Fight Morning Hunger with Fennel Tea

Fennel tea clears your palate so to say and refreshes your taste buds, but that’s not the main reason why so many people recommend drinking this powerful drink right before going to bed. The main reason is to avoid those early morning cravings, so you can choose your breakfast sensibly. When you drink fennel tea just before you bed, you don’t wake up starving like you likely would otherwise.

Fennel tea also helps your digestive system so you can more effectively digest the foods you eat, absorb the nutrients from those foods and helps prevent the storage of fat in your body.

Protein Powerhouse – Crimini Mushrooms

Packed full of protein, crimin mushrooms are often called baby-bellas (they’re basically just little min portabella mushrooms). They have a nice rich meaty flavor that makes them the perfect choice for meat substitutions. So the next time you’re prepping some burgers, meatloaf or meat sauce, replace some of that meat with these mushrooms.

You’ll instantly reduce the amount of fat in that dish and add healthy proteins without ever feeling shortchanged on flavor.

In addition to that, some researchers believe that crimini mushrooms have properties that will fortitude your immune system, making it easier to fight off and prevent cancer (and the development of tumors).

Apples Stop Fat & Calories in Their Track

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Ok, maybe not always, but an apple a day certainly does keep fat away. Try to snack on apples between meals or at least chop some up and put them on your salad before dinner. Why? Apples have pectin. Pectin is a fiber that’s super-powerful when it comes to weight loss.

When you eat apples, the pectin in them will decrease the amount of calories and sugar your body will absorb… so it makes sense to eat them before you plan on eating a meal.

Another important benefit of eating apples is keeping your blood glucose sugar levels in check. If you snack on apples, you’ll help your body to keep a steady and healthy blood glucose sugar level and avoid the mindless eating that comes from a blood glucose level crashing down from a high.

raspberriesBoost Metabolism with Raspberry Ketone

You can’t lose weight if your metabolism in a lull. A super easy way to kick-start your metabolism and keep it going is by using a raspberry ketone supplement. Raspberry ketone comes from raspberries. Raspberry ketone will control your adiponectin, which is what dictates just how fast or slow your metabolism runs.

In addition to that, it obliterates current fat cells and helps prevent your body from forming more.

While it’s true that raspberry ketone comes from raspberries, you’ll be hard-pressed to get enough of it from eating raspberries to make any difference. In fact, it would be pretty much impossible! In order to get the amount of raspberry ketone needed to achieve weight loss, you’d have to eat ninety pounds of raspberries. Not only is that, as we said, pretty much impossible, but it’d defeat the purpose. Instead, you will need to find a good raspberry ketone supplement.

Chili Peppers Reduce Appetite

If you love spicy then you’re gonna love this. Chili peppers! Inside chili peppers is a compound by the name of casaicin. Casaicin increases your body temperature, which in turn increases your metabolism. It’s also been shown that eating chili peppers will decrease your appetite.

So the next time you think your burgers, pasta or other meal is ready to eat… think twice and add some chilis or chili sauce to it to give yourself a weight-loss boost. Do this often to keep your appetite and cravings in check, as well as to boost your metabolism.

Stop Carbohydrate Fat Absorption with Vinegar

We talk a lot about your blood glucose sugar levels, because when they’re spiraling from one extreme to the next, you are very likely to mindlessly eat… just following cravings that your body is telling you need. Well, vinegar is another great way to keep them under control. Vinegar will help your body maintain a healthy blood sugar level that isn’t swinging out of control every few hours.

On top of that, vinegar is especially important if you love your potatoes and pasta. If you include vinegar in your diet then your body will not absorb those carbohydrates as fast. You can take vinegar and make all kinds of different, yummy sauces or vinaigrette to match just about any kind of cuisine you favor, too. Most are very easy to make and don’t cost much at all. Of course, there are plenty store-bought version too.

chiaseedsChia Seeds a Secret Source of High Fiber

Chia sees are a hot topic right now. All the healthy living websites and TV shows seem to be featuring them and giving ideas on how you can use them in your own kitchen. These little seeds are a powerhouse of fiber, that’s for sure.

What’s cool about chia seeds is that they’re pretty easy to incorporate into your daily diet since they can easily be used in both food and drinks. When you start using them, you will feel fuller and not want to eat as much. They’re also good for helping to reduce cholesterol levels and reducing the amount of fat your body stores.

If you want a really easy way to get chia seeds into your diet, make this simple drink. Toss in some sweetener or juice (pomegranate is always good) to a glass of water, sprinkle some chia seeds in and top it off with a slice of lemon.

Green Tea for the Long Haul

A few years ago, green tea was all the rage (much like the chia seeds are now). But just because it isn’t being talked about everywhere you turn doesn’t mean that it is no longer as effective at helping you lose weight. That’s not the case at all. It’s just there’s always something newer, something ‘just discovered’ that everyone wants to talk about.

Green tea is still very much effective. It helps you get rid of those cravings and helps you to feel fuller. So instead of a sugar-filled juice or soda (no-no), drink green tea between meals instead. At least some of the time.

If you continue to drink tea on a regular basis you’ll continue to stack the benefits of it. The longer that you use green tea, the more powerful it starts to become as your body adjusts. Your body will start refusing to store fat like it used to. It will start metabolizing food quicker, easier and more effectively. It’ll even start dealing with your cravings in a completely different manner.

Dump Cravings with Pepitas

Pepitas, pepitas… wondering what on earth that is? No, it’s not some miraculous new finding or exotic food ingredient. They’re simply squash seeds and pumpkin seeds. Pepitas is the Spanish word for them. They’re full of powerful Omega-3 fatty acids, which we all know are vital for our health. But that’s not all. They’re also incredible sources of magnesium and protein, which means that they are very helpful at reducing your appetite and getting rid of cravings.

The beauty of these seeds is just how simple they are to prepare. Nothing crazy. You can simply pop ‘em in the oven and roast them with a sprinkling of seasonings, use them as part of crusting for meats or put them on a salad.

red-lentilsFiber Filled Red Lentils

Red lentils are an amazing source of fiber. Just eating a single cup of them a day will give you three quarters the fiber that you should be trying to get each day. Now that’s fiber-packed for you, isn’t it?

Fiber is just one of the benefits that you get with red lentils. While fiber is vital in helping you feel nice and full, protein is just as important. Red lentils are another one that can be fixed in a variety of ways, too. They make a good meat substitute since they’re so packed with protein or you can do what many people do and fix up a delicious red lentil soup.

Watermelon – A Meat Alternative?

Watermelon is one of the most popular, nice-n-light foods during the summer. But I bet there’s a good chance you didn’t realize just how good it is for you. A lot of people recommend it when it’s especially hot out, because it’s high in water content. But surprisingly, it’s also incredibly high in protein and fiber.

Most people don’t realize just how powerful watermelon can be in a healthy diet or to lose weight. Watermelon can realistically be used as the protein in any meal with as much protein as it has. And it doesn’t take a lot, either. Again (like we mentioned above with the red lentils), it only takes a cup of watermelon to get ¾ of the daily recommended allowance of fiber.

Cinnamon for Weight Loss?

The next time you’re eating cinnamon toast, remember this… Cinnamon is a super spice when it comes to weight loss – not just a yummy addition to your meal. Eating cinnamon can make it easier to lose weight, because food doesn’t pass through your stomach as fast as it normally would. Add cinnamon to your coffee drink, toast or even pork chops. There are endless ways you can incorporate cinnamon into your day.

Get apples and cinnamon by slicing some apples and sprinkling them with cinnamon then roasting them in the oven or frying pan.

Avocados Kick Start Energy

Subway sure got something right… avocados are a powerhouse of nutrients and properties that are sure to help anyone trying to lose weight. I think avocados make the list on any superfood list! What makes them so powerful is the monounsaturated fat that they have. Adding avocados to your meal will give you an energy boost, help you burn fat faster and trim some inches around that waistline.

Qsymia – New Weight Loss Drug approved by FDA

Qsymia is a very exciting new weight loss drug approved by the FDA on July 17 2012. Qsymia is actually a combination of two different drugs, phentermine and topiramate, that are already approved and used widely. Phentermine is known as an appetite suppressant and Topiramate as an anti-seizure drug for epileptics. Qsymia was initially denied in October 2010 due to concerns about possible side effects (more below), and sent back for further testing. Although there are still some concerns, particularly when overused, the FDA decided the plethora of health problems associated with the exploding obesity epidemic are far worse.

What’s the big deal about Qsymia?

The Case for Svetol Green Coffee Bean Extract

look-good-svetolGreen coffee bean extract has quickly become one of the most talked-about weight loss products to hit the market. It’s been touted as the magical weight loss pill we’ve all been waiting for, and though it’s been proven again and again, many are still skeptical. That’s easy to understand though. Once you’ve been duped one too many times, you start to believe nothing is true.

The Svetol Factor

Once people seen the kind of weight loss that green coffee supplements can provide, it didn’t take long for marketers to take interest. It was popping up everywhere. Suddenly everywhere you looked online you found “Dr. Oz Recommended Green Coffee Bean Extract”. Truth is, many of these products were not real. Why? They lacked the quality ingredients that pure green coffee extract has.

Svetol green coffee bean extract is created from Robusta beans. The extract that comes from it gives you 45 to 50 percent of the magical chlorogenic acid. If you aren’t getting at least 45 percent chlorogenic acid then it isn’t going to be nearly as effective as you hoped. It’s ok if it has more, but 45 percent is the minimum you want to see on the label. Look for Svetol or GCA (green coffee antioxidant) on the label.

Proof that Green Coffee Extract Works

weight-loss-excited-green-coffeeThe Original Study Showed 15% Body Fat Loss

In January of 2012, The Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Journal published the findings of a green coffee extract study. This is the original study that sparked such a craze and the one that Dr. Oz originally talked about when he brought Dr. Lindsay Duncan onto his show in March. Dr. Lindsay Duncan is a naturopathic doctor and celebrity nutritionist.

While he typically doesn’t endorse supplements like this, he said that the potential of green coffee bean supplements was so exciting that he had to.

Over a 12-week period, participants in the study took the extract and did nothing different i.e. no exercising or dieting.

In fact, they were eating over 2,000 calories per day. Astoundingly, the end result was substantial weight loss and decrease in fat. They lost about 17lbs and over 15 percent body fat.

svetol-double-weightl-lossDr. Oz’s Study Proved Svetol DOUBLES Weight Loss

Fast forward to September of 2012. Dr. Oz was so intrigued with this magical weight loss pill that he decided to do a study of his own. Although he’s a well-known and respected doctor for very good reason, he brought in his team of medical experts to oversee the study.

Almost 100 women participated in this study: half were given the extract and half were given a placebo. They were medically screened and the only change they made was to keep a food journal to ensure healthier eating habits weren’t a factor in the results. As with the first study, they didn’t add any kind of exercise either.

“Dropped 2 Dress Sizes in 2 Weeks!”

And green coffee bean extract was proven yet again to be a powerful weight loss aid. The women taking the extract lost twice as much weight as those taking the placebo. All the participants were on-set and in the audience for the live show where he revealed the results. One lady even said she dopped two dress sizes during the 2-week study. If you missed it, we believe that Dr. Oz is going to rerun the episode showcasing the green coffee study on Dec. 27, 2012.

Why You Lose Weight With Green Coffee Extract

cut-fat-with-green-coffeeGreen coffee bean extract is created from raw, unroasted ‘green’ coffee beans. These beans contain the magical ingredient: chlorogenic acid. When coffee beans are roasted, just about all of this acid is destroyed. It’s the key ingredient and what makes this extract so powerful. It speeds up metabolism, hinders glucose from forming in the liver and slows down how much fat is absorbed.

There are three reasons that green coffee extract is so potent and why medical experts like Dr. Oz believe it could be the answer for weight loss.

#1 You don’t have to do any dieting. You can continue to eat whatever you normally eat now and still lose weight. Of course, if you did make a point to eat healthy that’s just even more weight you could lose.

#2 You don’t have to change your exercise habits. Most diets come with the typical fine print that says you need to eat well and exercise. Not this time. It’s been shown to help you drop weight even if you don’t exercise (that’s not to say that you shouldn’t, though).

#3 It works for anyone and has no side effects. Some people automatically think that it would have a lot of caffeine and make you jittery like some ‘energy pills.’ But truth is, there’s very little caffeine it.

Green Coffee Extract Warning

There isn’t any data about how it affects young children or unborn children. Therefore, kids and pregnant women should not take it. At a minimum, talk to your physician. If you are sensitive to caffeine, remember that it does have a small amount. We’re talking less than your typical cup of coffee.

Choosing Your Green Coffee Extract

This is such an amazing discovery for weight loss. But that doesn’t mean that all the suppliers you find will be selling a quality product that really works. As is the case when anything hot hits the market, there will be some companies that are just after your money. After researching all the brands available, the one that we highly recommend is this brand of SVETOL green coffee extract.

Just as Dr. Oz recommends, it:

  • Is SVETOL, which is very important
  • Comes with nothing but pure, natural, quality ingredients
  • Doesn’t have any of those fillers, additives, binders and other junk
  • Comes with an no-catch money-back gaurantee (the easiest refund policy we’ve ever found)
  • Has 50% Chlorogenic Acids
  • Is proven to be effective
