We found TWO sites running
this sort of advertisement.
Here is the first site: GREEN
COFFEE ULTRA A RIPOFF.
Note that they trash all the competition (at the bottom of
their page). Note the pretty graphics, the references to
studies, and their sales pitch. The product is Svetol®, a
substance derived from green coffee.
The studies are impressive. Readers of Rapid
Save Weight Loss get
a special newsletter that goes into depth on Svetol®, but
all you need to know is this: The study had the experimental
group take 200mg of Svetol® twice
a day prior to meals.
Here is the label to
their product that they want to sell you.
Their product has 200mg of Svetol®, but touts an
additional 600mg of Green Coffee Extract. More is
In the study, only 200mgs of Svetol® had been
used. In the study, not one milligram of Green Coffee
Extract had been used.
The price of this product (they tell you) that is so much
better than all the rip-offs: just $39.95 for a month’s
supply, but for you, you’ll get a 30% discount and
pay only $27.96.aPProved.

some of the great rip-offs in the MULTIBILLIONDOLLAR weight
loss industry. In the next newsletter I will introduce you
to the studies on Svetol®.
Let me leave you with this: if the sales pitch says
you don’t have to change your eating habits or your
lifestyle, and you will lose weight: RUN RUN RUN!
This is a lie.

The same goes for your life. Nothing happens till

I originally posted some of the following information on Facebook
and a friend came along with his response; that none of these supplements
Obesity is an epidemic in America. The CDC is worried about it.
So, the first study that I am going to show you was first found at
the CDC’s site:
placebo-controlled, linear dose, crossover study to evaluate the
efficacy and safety of a green coffee bean extract in overweight
subjects. I posted this as a response to my friend's
He read the study and responded that there were only 16 subjects and that in the end
the product produced a small, but significant weight loss over 22
months. “In other words statistically significant but clinically
I countered with the fact that these people weren’t on diets.
That the people in the study had no idea about what was going on and
so the weight loss was totally unexpected by the participants. I also said that were they on
diets they could easily realize still greater weight loss. Well, that
was my mistake. Never use the word “could.” He jumped all over that.
I did some more research and I finally found an actual weight
loss study (which, by the way, supported my “could” theory):
In a study published in Phytotherapy ... "researchers
used 400 mgs of Svetol brand green coffee bean extract with
50 participants aged 19-75 during the course of a 60 day
placebo controlled study. Interestingly, in this study
scientist tried to mimic what happens when people diet by
asking participants to reduce their daily caloric intake by
500 calories. Both groups lost weight, however those on
Svetol green coffee bean extract lost considerably more. The
group on placebo lost 5 lbs. while the group on Svetol lost
11 lbs. In addition the BMI of the group on Svetol green
coffee bean extract went down by 5.7% and the ratio of lean
(muscle) mass to fat mass increased by 4%. This shows that
the green coffee bean extract caused participants to lose
weight by increasing fat burning while sparing muscle tissue
(exactly what you want when losing weight). The participants
took 1 capsule containing 200mgs of Svetol green coffee bean
extract with each of their 2 biggest meals."
Here is a graphic that shows the differences between the
experimental group and the control group:
Coffee contains hundreds of chemicals. If you watch the news
regularly, you know that every once in a while they jump on a coffee
study saying it’s good for your heart, and then a little while later
they jump on another coffee study and tell you that it will kill
This is why I don’t listen to network news.
In green coffee, the chemical compounds responsible for the
weight loss are called chlorogenic acids. Most people, when they
think of coffee, think of caffeine, the stimulant, and they
automatically assume that this is the cause of weight loss. In fact, Svetol® has no caffeine in it.
In every cup of coffee you'll find chlorogenic
acids, but green coffee has much more because the roasting process
reduces the amount..
To understand the effects on your body produced by chlorogenic
acids we have to first define a few terms.
Adipose tissues are tissues that store fat.
Cytokines are proteins, partial proteins (peptides), and partial
proteins bonded to sugars (glycoproteins); cytokines modulate our immune
systems. By the way, scientists cannot seem to agree if these things
should be called cytokines or hormones, so you will often hear them
called either depending on the piece you're reading.
One of the cytokines in our bodies is called Adipokine (note the
similarity to the word adipose). Two adipokines (hormones) are
leptin and adiponectin. Both of these hormones affect weight loss.
Chlorogenic acids are antioxidants that, in
studies, appear to slow the
production of glucose after a meal and then go on to slow the
release of the glucose into the blood stream, keeping insulin levels
from rising. At the same time, they appear to stimulate the
production/circulation of adiponectin which enhances your muscles'
ability to burn carbohydrates, boosts metabolism, increases the rate
at which you burn fat, and curb your appetite. It is interesting to note
that the leaner you get the more your fat cells release adiponectin,
so once you get rolling, your body helps you keep up your fat loss.
The reason slowing production of glucose (after a meal) and
slowing its release into the blood stream helps
us lose weight is that without that glucose/sugar in your blood stream,
your fat metabolism is turned on. It’s that simple. And with a
regular exercise program, you can burn even more fat.
One thing all
the readers of our book Rapid
Safe Weight Loss know for sure is that when insulin levels
rise, your body stores fat.
Considering all this, you’d think that coffee consumption would
be pretty good prevention of type two diabetes and you’d be right.
JAMA published a study from Amsterdam that concluded that people who
consume coffee regularly have a much lower incidence of type two
diabetes, and a Harvard study concluded the same thing.
But we’re not talking your latte or mocha or cream and sugar
coffee drinkers. This is black coffee (to sweeten it perhaps some
Anything done to the coffee bean, from decafination, to
roasting, to fermentation will lower the amount of chlorogenic
acids in the coffee been and that is why green coffee beans are used
to make Svetol®.
Not all green coffee extract is Svetol®. Svetol is a specific
green coffee extract that is 45% chlorogenic acids.
So if you want to prevent or reverse your type two diabetes, you
now know that drinking a strong cup of coffee after a meal
(espresso) or taking Svetol® before a meal might be a good idea.
As far as dieting goes, Svetol® is a good supplement to add to
your regimen, but you do have to learn to eat properly and you must
exercise. We all must exercise. A sedentary life is a short and
