ZocdocAnswersWhat do you think of the pure green coffee bean extract for weight loss?


Just found this solution for weight loss on internet and was wondering if it was interesting.


Trying to develop a medically sound strategy for weight loss can be a challenge. It is definitely important to try to maintain a healthy body weight, as this can help maximize your quality of life and decrease your chance of developing one of many poor health outcomes that can be linked to being overweight or obese (including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis). However, there is no sound scientific evidence to support the use of green coffee bean extract (or any of the other extracts, supplements, or other remedies often touted on the internet) for supporting and maintaining healthy weight loss. In order to lose weight, you must consume fewer calories than you expend. The difference in net energy expenditure results in weight loss. You can increase the calories you expend by exercise or increasing your basal metabolic rate, and you can decrease the calories you take in my adjusting your diet. However, a specific dietary supplement will not likely result in dramatic weight loss and can have adverse effects on your health. If you are interested in a healthy plan to lose weight, the best thing to do is meet with your physician to discuss further. He or she can help you outline a medically sound diet/exercise plan and potentially refer you to a nutritionist for additional advice. Book an appointment today!
