Caffeine addicts rejoice!
Green tea has long been hailed as a weight-loss weapon thanks to its metabolism-boosting benefits, with fans including Jennifer Aniston and Sophie Dahl.
And now green coffee is getting everyone buzzing.
Green coffee beans contain a fat-burning antioxidant which aids blood-sugar control according to nutritionist Dr Sam Christie
A recent study found green — i.e.
unroasted — coffee beans can help you lose weight.
Participants in the
12-week trial lost an average of 13lb after taking a green coffee bean
‘It contains a fat-burning antioxidant called chlorogenic acid — destroyed in the roasting process — which aids blood-sugar control, so your body metabolises fat faster,’ says nutritionist Dr Sam Christie.
Try Verdesse green coffee supplements (14.95, naturesbest.co.uk), or Nescafe Green Blend instant (3.59, Sainsbury’s), a mixture of regular roasted and green coffee beans.
