The weight loss industry is a multi-billion dollar giant with hundreds of companies telling thousands of half-truths to separate you and your money.
Which supplements should you buy?
In an attempt to look past some of the supplement companies B.S., I employed the power of big data (via Google Trends) to identify the top 10 weight loss supplements….as decided by the millions of people who use Google to research weight loss supplements.
- No marketing B.S.
- No fraudulent claims from supplement companies
- No advertorials masquerading as honest information
Just pure data collected by the giant brains at Google.
Green coffee bean extract is made from coffee beans that have not yet been roasted.
Research shows that the roasting process of coffee beans reduces the amount of the chemical chlorogenic acid found in the bean’s natural “green” state. Therefore, green coffee beans have a higher level of chlorogenic acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans.
It is the chlorogenic acid in green coffee which is thought to have health benefits for weight loss.
In addition to these health benefits, there is some research indicating that green coffee bean extract may be helpful for:
How does Green Coffee Bean Extract promote weight loss?
The research is still in the early stages, but the commonly held belief is that green coffee bean extract promotes weight loss via the prevention of calories from carbohydrates being absorbed in the intestines.
In essence, green coffee bean extract is thought to work as a carb blocker...forcing the body to ignore carbs and allow them to leave the body as waste.

Earlier in the year, I wrote an article about the fat burning effects of Green Coffee Bean Extract (GCB).
Since then I have found out a little more about GCB…and it’s all good.
Not only does…
- It look like a more effective fat burner than the two pharma fat-burners (Qysmia/Qnexa & Belviq) recently approved by the FDA,
- It seems to have a blood pressure lowering effect
And it’s this positive effect on blood pressure that makes Green Coffee Bean Extract unlike any other fat-burner (drug or supplement) on the market today.
And considering that a lot of my clients who come to me for help losing weight also have high blood pressure, I may finally have a supplement that I recommend…even after talking to their doctor.
Here’s some of the science:
And when we combine all that with another 2012 study which showed how GCB lowered body weight, BMI, percent body fat while producing a small decrease in heart rate (BPM), we end up with a product worthy of significant interest from the medical community
Sounds like a great fat burner to me
NOTE: There is more research to be done on GCB. If you are going to experiment with it as a fat burner, I HIGHLY recommend talking with your doctor and paying close attention to how your body responds. Just because the science looks good up to this point, doesn’t mean that they won’t find a problem next year
NOTE – You can buy Green Coffee Bean Extract here.
A couple of months ago Dr. Oz read one of my articles about Raspberry Ketones and decided that RK supplements were a pretty cool way to melt off excess body fat.
Not wanting to keep this info to himself, he decided to do a segment about RK on his daytime tv show. And the day after that…. the supplement world went absolutely crazy with requests for RK pills.
I wonder what’s going to happen when he finds out about the next big natural fat burning supplement – Green Coffee Bean Extract.
The Science behind GCB and Weight Loss
There have been a number of studies over the years which showed that GCB extract had a positive effect on human fat loss.
This latest study is a little different in that it is the first to investigate how different dosages of GCB extract impact the effectiveness of fat loss.
Here’s what the researchers did….
Subjects received high-dose GCB (1050 mg), low-dose GCA (700 mg), or placebo in separate six-week treatment periods followed by two-week washout periods to reduce any influence of preceding treatment. Treatments were counterbalanced between subjects. Primary measurements were body weight, body mass index, and percent body fat. Heart rate and blood pressure were also measured.
- At the end of the study, 16 of 16 lost fat.
- The subjects lost an average of 10% of their weight
- There were no adverse side effects
- 16 of 16 completed the study
- When participants were on the high dose of GCB extract, the weight came off quickly
- When participants were on the low dose of GCB extract, the weight came off more gradually
- When participants were on the placebo, weight loss stopped
How do these results compare to pharmaceutical fat burners?
- 30-40% of test subjects dropped out of studies testing sibutramine, orlistat or rimonabant
- Compared with placebo, orlistat reduced weight by 2.9%
- Compared with placebo, sibutramine reduced weight by 4.3%
- Compared with placebo, rimonabant reduced weight by 4.1%
- GCB extract produces results far superior to big pharma fat burners
- GCB has no adverse side effects
- GCB extract is waaaaaayyyyy cheaper than a prescription fat burner
