Unroasted coffee beans are the fast-track to weight loss, say researchers

If you want to lose weight quickly, start swallowing unroasted 'green' coffee bean capsules

If you want to lose weight quickly, start swallowing unroasted 'green' coffee bean capsules. Judging by the results of others who have done it, you could lose around 10 per cent of your current body weight in a little more than three months.
Sixteen overweight or obese people - aged between 22 and 26 - took a capsule a day for 22 weeks. But for a third of that time, they were either taking a low-dose capsule of 700 mg of the coffee extract, or were taking a placebo, or 'dummy' capsule. The optimum amount was capsules of 1050 mg taken daily.
Those who take a higher dose capsule every day should expect to lose around 10 per cent of their body weight, say researchers from the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania.
The participants in the trial lost an average of 17 pounds (7.7 kilos), but this included taking a placebo and a lower-dose capsule as well. The participants didn't change their lifestyle, diet or exercise levels in any way during the study period.
Chlorogenic acid is the key weight-losing ingredient in unroasted coffee, say researchers, which is lost when the beans are roasted.
The one disadvantage is the flavour: green coffee beans have none of the lovely aroma of coffee and they have a slightly bitter taste.
