Overweight and obese people might have something to cheer about. They have been fighting the weight factor for a long time, trying out new ways to shed that extra weight. Every now and then, there is a new finding that gives them some hope of losing some pounds.
Now, scientists have come out with new evidences that green or unroasted coffee beans can produce a substantial decrease in body weight and that also in short period of time. The findings are a result of a study conducted on a group of overweight and obese people. After consuming few milligrams of ground green coffee beans each day, the group of people was able to shed almost 10% of their respective weight.
In the study, there were over 16 overweight or obese people from the age group of 22 to 26 years. They were given capsules containing ground green coffee beans powder having exact ratio as a placebo. The low dosage was about 700mg, whereas the high dosage was 1,050mg which were cycled through the participants. Each and every person was monitored for their diet circle, during which they also underwent specific exercise regime. Their calories, carbohydrates, fats and protein intake did not change during the study, nor did their exercise regimen change. This mean they were doing their normal routine and eating what they used to earlier.
During the period of 22 weeks, they lost average of 7 kilos of weight, which included an average of 10% in overage body weight and 16% in body fat. If the green-coffee extract is approved by Food and Drug Administration, then it would prove to be a vital candidate for weight loss.
