Has anyone tried these pills for weight loss and diabetes. I keep hearing about them and they even showcased them on Dr. Oz. But not sure what is truth and what is hype.

There are NO MAGIC PILLS to lose weight. There I said it. It needs to be shouted and that's why I even shouted it. As "old biker" said in his post the only thing he lost by taking the Green Coffee Bean pills was money. Marketers play on your pain. They want you to believe they can make your pain go away with the wave of their magic pills. It's all hype!!!

Losing weight and controlling you diabetes is within your grasp! That's the magic. YOU are the magic!! Once you realize that your diabetes is your responsibility - life changes. Because when you take responsibility you take control.

Your not to blame for your diabetes but you are responsible.

Medications for diabetes do not make you well - they keep you alive but you should be alive and well not just alive. Hear me now…I didn't say stop taking your medications - right now you MUST take your medications. But you should be able to take less and less not more and more. How well do you feel? Are you taking more medications or less medications?

Learning about eating controlled carbohydrates and incorporating an regular exercise program into your lifestyle (all with your doctors approval, of course) will make you better. You may still have diabetes but you won't suffer the horrible effects of this disease. You will be in control - not the diabetes.

Good books to read are: "Diabetes Solution" by Dr. Richard Bernstein. "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes. "Sugar - The Bitter Truth by Dr. Robert Lustig. "Blood Sugar Solutions" by Dr. Mark Hyman. "The Great Cholesterol Myth" by Dr. Jonny Bowden. And those are just for starters.

Diabetic Connect is a great site to get lots of good information. Never give up!

I don't think that it would be anything more than drinking a couple of extra strong cups of coffee…lol…I would not be able to sleep… Like they always said there is no magic pill out there you have to eat right and exercise in order to loose weight … There is no way around it … Don't waste your money on this stuff !!!!! Don't forget to always talk to your doc before you take any supplement even the green coffee bean one !!! You want to make sure your able to take it !!! Have a great day :)

I have heard about them for weight loss, but I can't imagine the caffeine that must be in those? I have not used them.
