Today was Day 5, I didn't weigh myself after taking the baseline and sisn't know what to expect. I lost 4 lbs w/out changing my diet or exercise habits!!!! For me it works as an appetite supressant, I get full faster, eat less, and do not have hunger pangs in the dead hours between meals. It also appears to have a mild dieretic effect. My morning blood sugars have been consistently less than 100 and there have been NO side effects. I am looking forward to seeing what happens after a month.

ive been taking 2 capsules 2x's a day have indigestion pale stools started after 2 weeks and im not sure if the pills are causing the pale stools ?? anyone??

ilenejay52 a year ago

check with your doctor ASAP make sure its not effecting your liver. Always play on the safe side. I am taking it so far no side effects, well i did have to change from 800mg 2x a day to 400mg 2x a day because it was making my BP go up. The lower does works just as good for me without raising my blood presure.

Taking GCBE should not raise your BP. I have Hypertension and I am also sensitive to caffeine. I made sure the brand I purchased did not have any stimulates in it, that of which would easily raise your BP and Heart rate. After searching all around the web I purchased from Bodybuilding.com. I have lost three pounds in five days of lounging around while my herniated disc heals. It is said that GCBE works for everyone because of its mechanics, however as with everything, all products are not created equal. But with caution.

I have taken this supplement for about 10 days. I am only taking 1 - 500mg capsule a half hour before I eat dinner. I have not had any side effects to speak of but I noticed I'm having more bowel movements than usual which in my case is good. I've also noticed that my blood pressure is starting to become lower. I'm usually around 145/78-80 and the last few days it's been closer to around 138/77. I've also lost around 6 pounds during the 10 days.

My only suggestion is to take new supplements of any kind on the conservative side to start out with. Jumping into a new supplement regime WILL cause your body to say WTF?? It's a foreign substance you've not taken before - it's only common sense. For me, so far so good!

I am on HBP also and I drink coffee every morning but I need to lose 40 pounds.The last comment was great for me.I am scared that it will give me the jitters,I hate the jitters!!! maybe I will not drink coffee for about 3 days and then start taking the green coffee in the drops. Anyone have any suggestions or comments.

pure green coffee bean will not give you the jitters for it has a very very low amount of caffine. i know its sill becouse its coffee but the caffine boost you get comes from when the beans are rosted. hope this helps :)

I am already on a great diet, and have already been losing weight, but wanted something to get me past the motivation and plateau issues so common in dieting. So far, after a few days, my weight loss is steady and I don't seem to have any side effects. I feel that this product will keep me motivated and push me over the plateaus.

It has now been about three weeks since I began this supplement. I have inched my way to 14 pounds lost, with minor ups and downs. As long as I am going the right direction, I am happy. I am continuing my exercise routine and healthy eating habits, which I am not sure may be the reason I'm still losing. However, when I cheat on my healthy diet, I do not gain as much as I have in the past.

I have been using GCB for almost three months. My stomach is beginning to burn intensely, and my doctor told me to stay away from all caffeine, including GCB. Not sure what's going on, but I'm not continuing it for now.

I have been taking (2)800mg capsules of the green coffee bean extract for three days now. It has definitely had an effect on my body. I stay extremely busy with kids and work, so my recommendation besides drinking tons of water is to make sure you eat!!! Sometimes I forget but I quickly remember when a brain-pulsing headache hits. I have also noticed in this short amount of time, that my bowel movements are smooth and easy and usually take place about an hour or 1 1/2 hours after taking. As long as you eat within 30 mins of taking and drink plenty of fluids, I would recommend this product...oh yeah, the 5lbs in 3 days didn't hurt either and that was still with having a triple birthday party yesterday!

I had a birthday party also, ate cake and Icecream and lost 1 pound! I was really surprised. so far since taking it for only two days I lost 5 lbs. I had to back off for a couple of days because something was making my BP go up. I was taking 4 400mg. 2 before breakfast 2 before dinner along with Raseberry Ketone. I am going to start back up today, slowly 1 400mg at dinner time, and go from there.I am a coffee drinker anyway, so I am guessing that had something to do with it. But it does work!

It inhibits iron absorption, I don't need that to happen as being a woman who already has problems with iron levels. When I took it, it made me angry and anxious. I took "Genesis Today" 400mg per meal 30 mins prior to meal. I bet it can be habit forming as well. And, what about the bowels? Can't they too become reliant on the laxative effect it causes? The metabolism is one thing people don't want to mess with as well. I just don't think it's what they promote it as. Just another slick way to get more money from people. There is no magic pill, the only thing there is, is exercise, eat right, sleep well and be happy.

For the most part, I agree with your sentiments.

sbla2003 a year ago

I was most interested to read the above comments mentioning feelings of anger and anxiety. I bought a quality brand of the decaffeinated product and had one tablet only - i felt angry and anxious and could not sleep, which is unusual for me, and the following morning I had a headache. I tried it once before and felt strange and irritable then too. I got the decaf product as I don't drink coffee. I searched the web wondering if I was the only one who had these negative symptoms. Has anyone else felt these symptoms too? I would love to be able to use it to lose weight but feel concerned that this tablet is the cause of such symptoms. I am unlikely to try it again.

It shortened my menstrual cycle both times I went on it but just in the first month of being on it. I had an 18-day cycle the first time I started using it. I went off it for a bit after I ran out and when I went back on it, again, 18 day cycle. Also, have noticed anger and anxiety is definitely heightened.

I have been taking the tablets twice a day, half an hour before meals for two days now, and I suppose it's a bit soon to judge. However, I was hoping for my energy levels go up, but to be honest, I have felt kind of down and it is 2pm and I am ready to take a nap. So tired!

I have used it for 2 days along with Raspberry Ketone. I have lost 3 lbs already but I am not sure if it's worth it. My blood pressure has elavated. Higest being 159/90. I was taking two capsule of pure green coffee bean twice a day. Along with 2 raspberry twice a day with meals. I haven't had stomach issues, just felt like I was in a fog all day. I am also drink coffee, about 2 cups a day. I am going to stay off it til I can get my blood pressure back down. Then maybe only 1 a day with each.

perhaps too much caffeine? That is known elevate your blood pressure. I am a coffee drinker so i wanted something to replace my morning coffee. I cant imagine taking both. my heart will probably be racing like jack rabbit. I too have bought the raspberry Ketone, thin tab green coffee extract & green tea fat burner. my plan is to take a weeks worth of each to see how my body takes & rotate til all the bottles are gone. between the 3.. i have a 2 month supply.. Lets see how it goes.

Green tea will elevate your blood pressure. There are some excellent decafinated coffees on the market. I love the Nescafe Primero and Maxwell house decaf instant. The Blue Donkee decaf ground is excellent also. I have purchased the Pure green coffee extract but will wait and talk to my doctor before trying it. I have BP, low blood sugar and heart issues so it is imperative that I use common sense when taking a new medication. i wanted it for my BP and blood sugar levels but also for my husband who is diabetic. I will post later when results are noted. Good luck!!!

After taking the Green Coffee Bean Extract for two weeks now, no weight loss at all has been experienced. However, everyday since beginning the routine of taking the recommended dose, I have experienced severe abdominal cramping and diarrhea for about 4 hours, within a half hour. I purchased a 3 month supply, so will continue until they are gone and certainly hope in the end it is worth it. I also have not experienced the surge in energy everyone is so excited about. I am not obese, about 30 lbs overweight. After 5 weeks: Still not one pound lost. Very disappointed.

I tried two brands and both made me edgy, scatterbrained with overstimuation and tightening in chest and awoke with a nausea and tightening in chest. They were very noticable symptoms with the morning nausea being especially unnerving. I am 60 years old , and have had high cholesterol for a long time so I may just be close to a heart event. However, I "do not" think these symptoms are due to the caffiene content since I have been a 2-3 cup a day coffe drinker for years and never had any problems. I cut my coffee consumption down to a cup or less a day while on the green coffee. This leads me to believe that the symptoms must be due to the CGA. What research is available on CGA in humans other than green coffee? What kind of chemical reactions could be caused by CGA to cause these symptoms. Anyway, I would be cautious if you are older or if you have any kind of heart disease.

I agree, caffiene has been constantly blamed for the negative effects people have experienced with the extract but i used a decaffinated product and i have also suffered similar digestive issues to what others have and more recently liver pain. i have no existing medical conditions. there hasnt been enough research done, the extact is being marketed in a very irresponsible way.

I used decaffinated green coffee bean extract which is supposedly better quality. a couple of weeks into it i developed severe digestive problems which ive never had before as well as pain from the area of my liver. i am a very fit and healthy person with no medical conditions. i stopped using the product a week ago and i am so much better now. what concerns me about the extract is the lack of research into long term effects on the body. it is marketed so well that people dont even consider such things. after researching the effects online i found many other people stating they had digestive trouble, and were told it was due to the caffiene. i however used a decaffinated product but suffered the same effects.

Just my opinion: I don't think the caffeine causes the digestive problems, because in most of the green bean coffee extracts that are on the market, there is very little caffeine. I think there is some other substance in the green coffee bean that causes problems for some people - maybe it is the CGA. I did mention that I had flu like symptoms that one can get with a detox. Everyone's body chemistry is different, so it makes sense to me that this may be great for some but not for everyone.

Thanks for sharing Sher! I do agree with your sentiment that anything new will have different affects on your body, but that does not mean diarrhea all day is a good thing! If you keep it up, you may get weak because your body isn't absorbing enough nutrients & is losing too much water! If it keeps happening, try lowering your dose, and then building up! Just like exercising, you don't start with running a marathon, you build up! Good luck, thanks for sharing!

Are you sure it says 800 mgs a capsule? or 800 a serving. I had to look at mine twice because I was reading it 800 mgs also, but then looked at the other side of the label and it says 400 mg per capsule. I'm thinking 400 mg ( or 1 capsule)Is plenty.

cindyfhca a year ago

Yes, be sure to read the label. They say a serving is 800mg., whether you get it from 1 pill or 2. I drink 1 cup of coffee every morning, and so far, my 800mg. 3x per day is fine. I've not noticed the jitters and I've not lost any sleep. But I just started. If you buy the 400mg pills, you can fine tune the doseage. It's harder to do that with the 800mg pill.

I am premenopausal and I began to gain weight as a result. I began taking these pills for weight loss and the weird thing is that I've become extremely aroused when I'm on them. I tried stopping for a few days and the sensations disappeared, took them again and the sensations returned. I did lose 4 pounds since but it could be a combination of my physical status, the increase in energy, and exercise. Is anyone out there experiencing this?

It sounds to me like between the veggies and the exercise you could be gaining muscle which would be taking the place of fat. That would not show up on the scale!! I noticed that with my diet and instantly became discouraged til I decided to go by measuring instead of that DREADED scale!! Try measuring your arms, thighs, and waist (depending on your exercises) then measuring again 2 weeks later! Also great job staying away from soda!! I know that's hard for some people but NOT drinking does more than just helping with weight!! I have read horrifying articles about soda!!

Hello, I've been taking GCBE since 11/14/12 800mg, (2 400mg) 30 mins before meals. I weighed in at 187.5 seven days later, I weighed in at 184.5. Yes, right before Thanksgivings, now how could I resist the turkey, ham, dressing, gumbo, potato salad, cranberry sauce, cakes and pies. nevertheless, yes there have been times when I've had indigestion, but what i did was to consume more foods, it is evidence that I did not eat enough and the Chlorgenic Acids don't have sugars or starches to feed on. Try not to change your eating habits much and make sure you drink plenty of water. Good Luck. I will try to keep everyone updated on my progress. Down in Louisiana

I have been using GCBE for a little more than two weeks. I am 62 yo and exercise regularly, swimming 2500 m/day or bicycle riding 15-30 mi/day. My weight loss had plateaued before I began using GCBE, but it is now trending downward again. I cannot say for sure that it is the GCBE alone that accounts for this, but the coincidence is there. No adverse side effects. I take one max strength capsule in the morning and one before dinner.

It worked great for about 3 weeks. I had more energy and work up each morning ready to go. Then I started noticing that I was jittery and very irritable. I had no other new prescriptions. This lasted for over 2 weeks. I discontinued and feel fine although I miss the energy it gave me but the irritability just wasn't worth it.

Green coffee bean extract was recommended to me by my nutritionist. I have shed 25 pounds in 3 months and I have never felt better. However, I have been doing other beneficial things as well: I eat a diet where 50% of my daily plate consists of greens, I limit my portions, I exercise for an hour a day, I drink green tea at least 4 times a day, each time with a tablespoon of coconut oil. I have switched to cooking only in ghee or coconut oil and I have also cut out milk (in favor of nut milks) and am mostly gluten-free even though I don't suffer from Celiac. I have cut out sugar, artificial sweeteners and all processed food because I don't want preservatives and additives to enter my system.

So, because the changes I made are several, it is difficult for me to isolate the effect of green coffee bean extract. If I am ever in a situation where there is a chance to eat a big, heavy Indian, Italian or Mexican meal I take a 400 mg GCBE capsule with a full glass of water, 30 minutes before the meal. Heavy meals used to make me bloated, fatigued, sleepy before, but I can feel the impact of the GCBE as I continue to feel lithe and light even after a rare heavy meal.

I would recommend it for this very reason.

I am taking 1 800mg pill before breakfast, and another before lunch....as directed.I am not as hungry between meals-and no side effects that I can notice-except I happened to take my blood pressure at the food store and it was 97/55- little low....maybe coincidental???

I'm on my second day, taking 400mg a day. It made me very anxious and angry the first day. I'm an ex coffee drinker and it made me feel like I drank a pot of coffee. I took it in the morning but was awake all night. Took another one on day 2 at breakfest. It made me anxious and hyper with slight nausea and stomach pain and had to urinate a lot. it made me very hyper and energetic but at the same time very tired if that makes sense.It makes me feel all drugged up and not the normal sense of well being and happiness that I experience daily.Also made me feel sad. I normaly have bounds of energy and excercise regularly and only need to loose around 5 Ibs. I will try it for a few more days and if the side effects continue then i will discountinue and throw them in the garbage.

I have been taking the Dr. Oz capsules twice a day 20 minutes before meals for about ten days now and have not lost any weight at all.. At first I found I had more energy and less appetite - I only want to lose about 7 lbs and I already eat healthy and exercise daily but the last few days I have been feeling edgy, anxious and irritable and now I last night and tonight I have been unable to sleep, which is why I'm in the kitchen on my laptop at 1.34 in the morning and have to be up by 6.30 to get the kids out before I start my day.. I think I may have to give this a miss and see if I feel any better - I have also been itchy and hot at times and i normally feel the cold!

I took 800mg before my larger meal everyday for about 5 weeks. I had back to back hot flashes , (thought maybe it was menopause??) I did not get my period that month and continued on with constant hot flashes. I quit using it when my hair started to fall out. I have not had a hot flash since and I am having my normal monthly cycles. I had my TSH (Thyroid) level checked 2 months before I started taking the green coffee and it was normal , I just had It taken 4 weeks after I stopped the supplement and my TSH is high ?? I think this supplement messes with your Pitutary and thyroid . I DO NOT !!!! RECOMMEND IT!! PS No weight loss ,Blood surgar Up slightly and blood pressure unchanged.!

I has been on it for approximately 2 months and losing weight very nicely, when my blood sugar shot up dramatically. When I was seen in the ER it was 735. Eleven months earlier my sugar was 110 and all my labs were perfect. I no longer take the capsule and now I am on insulin, Victoza and metformin orally. My sugars run about 110 now. I am really concerned about diet and exercise now. I really watch it. I am not sure if I would take this capsule again. Is there anybody out there with this type of experience? I am a pharmacist and I understand most of the mechanisms of pharmacology, patho-physiology and therapeutics. I watched the Dr. Oz episode that he discussed GCBE and I was convinced, until now.

Dr. Oz suggested these 2 supplements on his show. I Can NOT take Green Coffee in the afternoon, or I won't be able to sleep. It makes me jittery. Says it the amount of caffine is a HALF cup of coffee. What kind of half cup of coffee lasts all night? I can drink 2 Cappuccinos, and have less jitters! Ive purchased the combination with Green Bean Coffee and 80mg of Saffron Extract. The Saffron Extract Alone works better with me, for my appetite, than the comination of the two together. Saffron has no caffine, and no noticeable side effects. I don't know why Green Coffee make me jittery as if I had 4 shots of Espresso. I thought the this two combination brand work work better than one alone, but I haven't found that to be the case.

Just began taking it on Monday of this week so I'm not sure yet, but my eyes have been feeling odd since I started. Almost a numb feeling like when you get them dialated at the eye Dr. I'm sure this has absolutely nothing to do with Green Coffee Bean extract, but was curious if anyone experienced the same thing.

I have been to my doctor i actualy gained 3 pounds. I had previously lost over 20 pounds to lower sugar levels. Iit worked in the beginning but i had to keep cutting diet to keep sugar levels normal. My doctor said she was gona put me on more meds to lower my sugar thats when i started takingGCB extract. My sugar is down and eventhough i have gained weight my physical size is down. People keep asking what iam doing. So i will continue and see if the numbers come down too.

I am about a month in using GCB extract. I made some adjustments and my sugar levels are steadly droping. This is the main reason why i began to take it and i am seeing significant drop in sugar levels. I do follow a low carb diet with no extra sugars to my diet. But i have been on a srict diet since february and results would vary. Im trying to decrease insulin intake. I have not weighed my self but my work clothes are hanging off me. Go to doctor this will see how bloodwork turns out

I am taking 2 400mg(50%chlorogenic acid) pills in the morning about 30 min before eating. I have been on it for over a month and I haven't lost any weight at all. I did try at one point taking the two pills before breakfast and two before dinner but I noticed I was having issues focusing my eyes and started having issues with dehydration so I went back to just the dose before morning. I have also noticed an increase in sex drive and less bowel spasming(severe irritable bowel) but that is about it. I haven't lost any weight, I am over weight quite a bit and am disappointed. I also have kept track of my measurement and no change there either. I even altered my diet to see if that would help. I am eating smaller portion sizes and healthier choices the majority of the time. I bought three bottles and will keep trying but not very optimistic at this point. Also, I have a bladder disease which makes most exercise very difficult as it causes intense pain and other disorders and allergies which limit what foods I can eat so weight loss has been very very difficult for me.

I have been taking only 1 800 mg. veggie capsule daily, 30 minutes before my morning meal with an 8 oz. glass of water. I started on Oct 25 at 251 lbs. and today, Nov. 2 I am at 249 lbs. (2-lbs lost). I am not a coffee drinker and I experience an overload yesterday when I had a "white coffee mocha" before eating my first meal of the day...and, later after eating too late (about3pm) my stomach became upset and I was running to the bathroom for 1-hour off and on. The caffeine intake was too much and eating late didn't help. My suggestion to everyone is to drink plenty of water, eat regular meals timely and slow down the intake....slow weight loss is so much healthier than fast weight loss. I would recommend this product to others. It does work...just watch the caffiene.

I've been tacking it regularly for about three weeks. So don;t really expect any results. The great thing is it doesn't cause jitters. Also, it gives you energy that you can handle. I will keep on tacking this, because even if i don't lose the amount i want at least my house is clean. By the way, don't take this anytime near bed, because you won't be sleeping anytime soon :)

I purchased the GCBE liquid drops and followed directions of half dropper before meals, 3 times a day.. within a couple of days I have broke out all over..small bumps w/red rash, very itchy under breasts, patches on stomach, low back and backside. I have stopped the drops and will return to the raspberry drops after a week or so. I realize there is no magic solution, but the drops make it easier to keep hunger at bay and eat less. I suppose a glass of water would do the same, good luck I know I need some. kathyo

First of all, I take blood pressure meds, and a anxiety pill, was on metaformin for my sugar. Metaformin would make me cough alot, as I found out online that is one of the the side effects of metaformin. So, quit taking it and started taking the GCB yesterday took 2 tablets (400mg. each) before supper. when I woke up this morning had diarrhea and my stomach was a little upset. Any suggestions? should I just take 1 pill before lunch and one pill before dinner? I really would like to give this a try. I have my routine blood work done next week and will tell my doctor about the metaformin and also tell him about GCB. It seems like every thing he tries to put me on for my sugar doesn't agree with me, other meds. caused me to sweat real bad and cause light headness. My sugar is not that high but he is using precaution and trying to put me on something. I was hoping this GCB works. I feel alot better now that I am up and moving around but don't want to have to deal with the diarrhea and sicky feeling while I am taking this.

I had taken the GCBE by Jarrow Co.of L.A. Ca. They were 400 mg capsuls taken once in am and once at pm meals.I started on 11-13-12 @ 222.3 lbs and stopped on 12-19-12. At that time I weighed 205.2 lbs. Great and fast weight loss except that I am still losing weight after the stoppage. I weighed myself this morning 1-1-13 and weighed in at 191.0. I find myself being very tired during the daytime but I attribute that to the fact that I am up at least once every hour to urinate.I was still taking my multivitamin during the whole time and I have added an Iron supplement in an effort to solve my HEAVY LEGS and ARMS feeling. I had been drinking at least a qt of Gatorade O2 when I first get up and about 3/4 of a gal of diet Ice Tea during the day for energy. My food consumption has not changed but I am now drinking just pure water. I would like to hear from someone with any ideas on my symtoms. I must say it does work but I might suggest only 1 capsul daily....

This is only my 3rd day of taking it. I did notice a higher energy level. I have had mild diarrhea in the morning along with something that seems like mild flu symptoms. I'm going to try a smaller dose, and then I will work up to the suggested dose. Having worked for a nutritionist, at one point, I know these symptoms often occur when the body is detoxing. I am thinking that, in my case, my liver may be detoxing and melting fat, and this could have something to do with the diarrhea. One of my reasons for trying these was to help my liver, since gall bladder issues (mine was removed) often mean the liver is having issues with processing fat. I doubt the diarrhea is being caused by caffeine, in my case, since there is such a small amount of caffeine in the capsules. Will see how it goes for a couple of weeks and get back to you.

I was on Green Coffee Bean Extract for 2 months. Since I was exercising at curves I had measurements and monthly weight stats on record. I took the first month with no change, but I was taking it the same time I ate breakfast. After remembering that requirement the second month I took it 1/2 hour ahead with 1 glass of water. I lost 2 to 3 inches on my waist and abdomen, and lost 1 pound. However, my stomach started hurting and eating made it worse. My doctor said it was the extract. I stopped and my stomach immediately started feeling better. But I have gained 3 to 4 pounds back in a week. Dr. Oz, what happened?

I'm 44 yrs.old woman, and I tried the green coffee bean pill for 3 days. I always took the pill in the morning, 30 minutes before a meal. On day one, by late afternoon, I noticed some stomach spasms, but I dismissed them as unusual, and a onetime thing, since I never have had problems with my stomach previously. I even considered myself a person with a very strong stomach. On the morning of day 2, I woke up with the same stomach cramps/spasms and I did not like it. But I ignored it and thought it was just coincidental, so I took the pill again. I had spasms all day long and into the night. For ladies that have been pregnant before, these would be spasms resembling fairly short contractions, except they involved the stomach, and not the uterus. The same thing repeated on day 3, and that was the last time I took one. My stomach spasms didn't go away for 2 more days after I stopped the pill, which concerned me, but it is now 3 days since I stopped the green coffee bean pills, and there's no sign of the pain. I was taking one 800mg pill a day (in the morning; 30 minutes before a meal) from a brand that I bought through Costco.com called "Creative Bioscience". A brand I trusted, coming from Costco.com . At the end, I didn't even care about weight loss. So coincidence or not, I will never put my body and stomach through this again. After all I only have one stomach that I will need for the rest of my life. Please be gentle with yours too.

I realized side effects...! I tried the first one sunday after a big mean: MY mistake! I kept vomiting everywhere. Learned from my mistake and actually did what the package says.. Every time I take the pills I feel a bit weird... I do go for number 2 A LOT! but dont have diherrea or anything like that. I started drinking A LOT of water as Im always thirsty and obv need to pee a lot as well. After taking the pills I get hot flashes ( my bf even realized my red cheecks and got concerned) I sweat and feel very hot and cold .... I took diet pills in the past which were much more worse and got my heart racing like I was on proper drugs. Those feel ok and as its just day 3 I will continue for now. If the sideeffects get worse I will stop.

I drink a protein shake for breakfast, and have tracked all my food on my fitness pal (that alone makes you eat less cause it makes you accountable for what you put in your mouth), and have also been taking green coffee bean extract, along with green tea extract, omega 3,6&9, and a mulit vitamin. I have lost 5pounds in the first week, I have had no side effects. I purchased all my products at popey's (Canada) I feel like I have more energy and am not hungry all the time, I have also added protein to each meal, which helps you feel fuller for longer. I would recommend taking this product, but DO NOT ORDER FROM THE INTERNET!!! go talk to a nutritionist or a health professional, SO you make sure you are getting the right product, and not some crap off the internet that is filled with caffine and makes you feel like like your on speed.

I took GCBE for a little less than a week. I stopped because I was getting terrible muscle cramps all over my body. Seeing your post, I think it was really dehydrating me, as dehydration is a known cause of muscle cramping. I also experienced very dry mouth. Even though it has been several days that I've stopped taking it, still getting the muscle cramps and dry mouth. This product definitely is not for me.

I am a runner and since taking this product I can not get through a run it's like I hit the "wall" from the first step. Also I have not dropped one single pound. I will no longer be taking this product.

I had kidney pain and frequent painful urination after only three days of taking it. The health food store told me to take 400 mg 3x a day. Maybe this was too much, but I would not try it again ;since I had many hours of a very painful experience. I stopped taking it 24 hrs ago and I am just starting to recover.

I'm going to start taking this tomorrow before my lunch - I've decided to take it easy for the first day or so to make sure that I don't have any adverse reaction to it. Background: I'm 24, not overweight at all, I exercise 5 times a week and I attempt to eat a healthy diet. I just want something to help me tone up.

To the people talking about how it inhibits iron absorption - if that's true, I hope it does. I have hemochromatosis (iron overload) and if there's something that can help stop my body from holding excess iron that would be wonderful. Side note - hemochromatosis occurs in 1 of every 200-300 people and it is rarely diagnosed. It causes iron to sit around your organs and if left untreated it will slowly eat away at them and cause organ failure. Most women aren't diagnosed until they're 50 and men are 40. I was lucky and was diagnosed when I was 20. I thought I had low iron -- the symptoms are identical. I know this is going off topic here, but I just want to spread information about it because it's a disease that is never talked about but it should be. So many people die from this when they're older because they have no idea that they have it. It's easily treated -- you just need to have phlebotomies (a bag of blood drawn) once in a while to keep iron levels down. So long as you do that, your life expectancy is normal.

Anyways, I'll come back and post my results in a few weeks.

PS- can people please post what brand they purchased and the ingredients? That would be helpful. I went onto vitalmend.com and bought theirs. It says that it's FDA approved, GCA, etc. Only ingredients are the bean and vegetable cellulose. There is also a contact number on the site which I called because I mistyped my mailing address - I was glad someone actually picked up on the other end. Made me feel better about the company I was purchasing it from.

So How did it work for you? I am in the same situation, not overweight but would like to lose maybe 7 lbs and tone up, got my product from vitalmend also, 800mg. I am going to take just 1 capsule per day with the bigger evening meal as i think 1600 would be too much for me. I am concerned about the side effects especially the dioahear and itching, swelling and numbness, as you are already slim and healthy would you tell me how its been for you? thanks Z

To be honest I stopped taking it after only a week and a half or so. I've suffered from anxiety in the past and it just set it off. I felt jittery the whole time that I was taking them and I didn't see any results either.

My mom tried to take them at the same time but immediately stopped because it gave her diahrrea and an upset stomach. To be honest this makes me a bit weary of it because if what this really does to people is just make them go to the bathroom a lot, it will dehydrate them and if that's the case, you're not really losing weight, you're just losing all of your water and that isn't healthy.

It's a bit annoying because I bought from a good brand so it was expensive and I got zero results from it. But then again, maybe if I'd tried to keep going with it I would've seen a difference.

I've actually gone to yourtea.com and I'm going to try some of their herbal teas which are supposed to help with any bloating and indesgestion issues so I'll see if that works for me instead.

I started taking GCB July 19th. They come in 500mg capsules. I took one 30 minutes before supper. Next morning 30 minutes before breakfast. That evening 30 minutes before supper. I am 6'3", 210lbs. I figure because of my size it would take a few days to kick in. The pharmacist who sold me the product, referred to my size and stated that I may need to increase the dosage. I am on Metformin for type II Diabetes. I exercise at a gym every other day and eat a proper diet to keep glugose levels in the normal range. The following morning I took 2 capsules before breakfast. That afternoon I went to the gym for my regular routine. I could not finish. I had an attack of low blood sugar,where I was on the verge of passing out and required an immediate boost of sugar. I drank some apple juice to correct the drop. I took 1 capsule before supper. That evening and throughout the night I had to get out of bed every hour on the hour to void, however there was little fluid. I figured this was my body releasing the toxins. These symptoms have not stopped. I have stopped taking the capsules. The constant feeling of having to void has not stopped. I have been off the capsules for 3 days now. The urge to void has subsided a bit but continues. My BMs are fluid. Each time I drink anything I need to void almost immediately. I hope I haven't damaged my kidneys. I see my GP next week. I will submit his diagnosis.

Before taking GCBE, I lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks on my own due to healthy eating of vegetables and proteins and exercise. I take no meds or vitamins. I began taking GCBE (real deal, no fillers) 2 weeks ago. I take 1 pill (400mg) half hour before breakfast with a glass of water and another pill before dinner (as instructed) on Dr. Oz show. I have lost no weight and after 3 days developed a horrible itching all over my upper torso. As I opened the lid to my second bottle of GCBE this morning, reality slapped me square in the face. I forgot to take my GCBE pill before dinner last night and I am barely itching this morning. I have also experienced some light dizziness and fatigue. No more of this mess for me. Through additional research, I have learned my itching from taking this supplement has caused my liver to work harder which is causing the itching. BEWARE! I'm going to lose weight the correct and hard way. Eating right is a lifestyle!

Started 4 days ago and have already lost 9 lbs! I am also eating a well balanced healthy diet and have not exercised yet.

I have had some diarrhea but not ongoing and I have a very sensitive stomach. The biggest issue for me is restless nights, haven't slept good since started but as long as I am losing weight I don't care,won't keep taking these forever. I also eat my last meal late so will not do that anymore as that is probably why I can't sleep.

Since I have started menopause I am having a really hard time losing weight so I am thrilled with the results so far.

The results will vary depending on how much you have to lose. If you only have 10 lbs to lose then it may not work but me, I have about 80-100 lbs to lose.

If I get more side effects then I will stop.

I have been trying this for two weeks straight with all sorts of side effects. I thought it was just me because everyone is marketing the safe and no side effects to this product. The first night I had violent vivid dreams. I have had a non stop headache for the past two weeks. I decided to stop taking them after I had the first migraine in my ENTIRE life yesterday. I have muscle twitches all over. I decided to do some further research. Yes the product does block calories from being absorbed, I have lost weight. However it is also blocks key nutrients from being absorbed as well. I added a multivitamin and some iron into my diet this week and feel slightly better, This product is not worth it to me. I feel out of my body and have brain fog. Started 24 hours after starting product. Right now I am staying hydrated to flush this out of my system. I will have to stick with less calories and more activity.

When I tried the Purely Inspired Green Coffee Bean supplement, which consisted of two 400mg servings per day, I had high hopes. I unfortunately stopped taking the product after about three days due to extreme diarrhea. I'd prefer working out to severe diarrhea, personally.
