So for almost a month now I’ve been taking green coffee bean extract every day. I was really hoping I could tell you it works but it doesn’t. I’ve seen no change in my weight loss, my energy levels or my appetite.
I’ve been really struggling with my weight loss journey lately, I’ve lost all motivation and I just can’t figure out how to get it back. This last week I’ve been to the gym three times after months of not going and in that week I’ve put on another kg. So no, the coffee bean extract definitely did not work for me. I’m not claiming that they don’t work at all, they just didn’t for me.
In a way I’m kind of glad, because if they did work like they were advertised it would just give me another excuse not to try my hardest and put in my all. I guess I’m just going to have to keep searching for that motivation.
My coffee bean extract arrived today and I’m really looking forward to seeing if there is any change in the next few weeks. I took two today before lunch and there was a change by dinner.
Last week on my cheat day we ordered crust pizza and I ate a whole one by myself. Tonight we did the same and I couldn’t take another bite after half.
I’m not saying that this is because of the extract but you’ve got to wonder. I’ll keep posted on it.
Please note that I am in no way recommending this brand. Do your own research. Most of the reviews on the internet I can’t believe because they recommend specific brands and have links to buy them which probably means they’re getting paid by that company.
I decided to write a post on green coffee bean extract after hearing that it was a great weight loss supplement and after reading pages of information on the extract I found this video that sums it all up better than I could do in writing.
The only important points that I would add to the information that Dr. Oz gave is that I found a lot of websites posting warnings that there are many fake products out there. Avoid fakes by making sure that it says at least 45% Chlorogenic acid because that is the active ingredient.
Also as well as killing all the sugar, chlorogenic acid gets all your iron, zinc and magnesium so it has been suggested that along with taking green coffee bean extract you should also take vitamins that include these minerals daily. I just take Swisse multivitamins and they cover all of them.
I bought this one litre bobble drink bottle from the supermarket. It makes it so much easier to get in my average four litres of water a day, which is extremely important for weight loss.
It’s important to get a BPA free water bottle because the chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) has been linked with increased risk for cardiovascular disease, breast and prostate cancer, early puberty, obesity, diabetes, infertility, erectile dysfunction, and learning and attention-related disorders.
This drink bottle also has a filter which may be important to some but honestly I usually drink it without the lid on so I can get more water down in one gulp. That’s what works for me.
Highly recommended! And you can get it from most supermarkets so no excuses.

If you’re looking for something to help you lose weight, one of these two supplements will be your new best friend. The omega 3 in these supplements decreases insulin which is what turns food into fat in your body. Too much insulin stops your body from breaking down stored fat to use as energy. It also causes high blood sugar levels.
Omega 3 increases your ability to burn fat because it increases blood flow to your muscles during exercise as well as being an anti-inflammatory which will help prevent that soreness after a workout. The catch here is that you do need to exercise for that to work.
Fish oil and krill oil are incredibly beneficial to your heart, eyes and brain. They also help maintain cardiovascular health, cholesterol levels and relieve osteoporosis.
I personal preference is krill oil because it’s stronger, but either is much better than nothing. Here’s a video comparing krill oil to fish oil.
