Strays off-topic and incoherent
on September 28, 2012
I bought this book because another reviewer of green coffee bean extract supplements recommended it. Save your time and money. This author lacks credibility as an authority on the subject of weight loss. English skills are obviously lacking in completing sentences, grammar, and formating throughout the book. This short book is more like the content of a pamphlet. Instructions for selecting green coffee bean extract are similar to Dr. Oz's recommendations. The author's "best guess" for dosages isn't justified with reasoning or facts. There is a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. The average dieter already knows the majority of these tips. If you are interested in reading this book in the first place, you are above average in nutritional wisdom. One interesting bit of information was about the JNK gene role, which merits further research. Google a Harvard Gazette article entitled, "Key Gene Discovered for Obesity and Diabetes." The second half of this book reads like a series of studies on an unspecified "nutrient concentrate." There was no apparent connection to the subject of green coffee bean extract. The small study that created all the buzz about green coffee bean extract can be read about by searching Google for an article entitled, "Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, linear dose, crossover study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a green coffee bean extract in overweight subjects" by Joe A. Vinson.
