And now, Green Coffee Extract.
Green Coffee Extract contains a natural acid (of course I forget what it’s called) that reduces the amount of glucose released into the blood stream and boosts metabolic activity. Because of this, Green Coffee Extract helps prevent the absorption of fat in the body and has been shown to lower blood pressure in some people.
Green Coffee has very little caffeine. It’s actually contains less than a quarter of the caffeine you would get in a regular cup of coffee. I have experienced absolutely no jittery side effects from taking these capsules. And although it would be nice to drink more coffee, roasted coffee does not contain the effective acid present in green coffee berries. The roasting process somehow removes that particular acid from the bean. Why can’t you just eat green coffee berries? Well, I suppose you could, but they don’t taste very good and you’d have to eat quite a few to reap the benefits.
These capsules should be taken 30 minutes before every meal to work effectively. For whatever reason, I've had trouble remembering to do this, so I don't think there will be a big difference when I weigh in on Wednesday, but you never know. I've been able to remember to take the green coffee at least twice a day, but not always a full 30 minutes before a meal. Sometimes it's just a few minutes.
I'm hoping that I've been diligent enough with the ketones and the coffee that the scale will show me a full pound lost Wednesday morning.
