You've heard of low-caffeine coffee and low-acid coffee...now what about "diet coffee" that is low glycemic, or as they call it, "skinny coffee?"

 

Check out the video below. It's from a new company named Boresha that says low-glycemic coffee will help you lose weight. They claim it's "patented, low-glycemic thermogenic."

 

I think it's an innovative idea, but I'm suspicious. Coffee is a naturally low-glycemic food. It's low-carb to begin with. It's the roasted pit or nut of a fruit.  Bite into a coffee bean...it isn't sweet. That's because it doesn't contain much carbohydrate at all. That's why we have to add sugar to a lot of coffees...

 

Caffeine may help with weight loss just by itself because it's a stimulant that increases metabolism and suppresses appetite. That's a reason caffeine and other stimulants are in weight loss tablets like Proshape, Cylapril and Metabolite although it's often from Green Tea, Ginseng or Guarana rather than coffee.

 

I like innovators in the coffee industry (Eyal and I among them!) but I'm not so sure about this coffee. There's an interesting response below from a reader. Post thoughts on "skinny coffee" in the comments below.

After reviewing both Boresha's website and the scientist behind the coffee, Dr. Ann de Wees Allen, it's not just the coffee that is low glycemic, but an actual compound that is added to the coffee - a certified low glycemic, natural sweetener (Acai Sweet) that I believe is allowing them to add to the claims of low glycemic, hunger control, and combating stress related eating. The Thermogenic or fat burning properties obviously aren't typically found in coffee (too bad though), and seems that the thermogenesis isn't from the low glycemic part but from the 'buffered caffeine'. There are a few clinical trials and studies (which is impressive for a coffee product) but found must were linked through the site, www.skinnysciencecoffee.com. I can understand how you originally felt, but after looking through the technical and scientific research on the Skinny Coffee product I've actually found this to be a pretty riveting discovery. Obviously, after is all said and done, the proof is in the pudding, or mug. :) Have you tried it and does it work?

Thanks for posting your interesting thoughts. I haven't tried Boresha's coffee. But I toned back my blog post above based on your feedback. Much appreciated.

I havent looked into it yet but I understood the low glycemic effect to mean that because the caffine is buffered it would not effect your blood sugar. I remember reading that caffine can mimic a spike in you blood sugar and your body reacts as if it had sugar. I read that I think in a Atkins diet book, or one of those no carb deals, they recomend no coffee for that reason. I hope it works cuz i love coffee but but i worry about my adreanals and it hipes me up and who wouldnt like to loose a few lbs. :)Terry

I'm researching this because my 74 year old father decided to try this diet, against my advice. So far, I have nothing conclusive that can make or break this product. I have yet to find the actual patent held by Dr. Allen, but I have my suspicions that it is not as broad as she would have us believe. Neither caffeine nor buffering are new, or patentable. I believe her patent is on a product cleverly named "Buffered Caffeine(tm)" containing, you guessed it, buffered caffeine paired with a specific non-cephalic carbohydrate. Just to be clear, "buffered" caffeine is still caffeine, and there is no difference in its physiological effect, it just releases at a slower rate and has no bitter taste. The lack of bitterness requires less sweetener to mask it, making it suitable for the "Infused Fruit" product, which is less sweet than sucrose and does not trigger the cephalic response from the brain. This prevents the release of unneccessary insulin into the blood stream, subsequently preventing a drop in blood sugar levels (the body reacts to this drop by making us hungry). I would like to see an FDA review of this product, but that will likely never happen since it is marketed as a dietary supplement and is therefore not subject to approval before it is distributed. What really bothers me is that all of the so-called "Certifications" this product touts come from private organizations that are all partially owned by Dr. Allen. They make claims to be "Government Certified" but that is extremely vague. I can get a letter stamped at the post office and call it government certified. I want to know what department of the Federal government certified them, exactly what certs have they been awarded, and what kind of scrutiny they had to face to earn these certs.

I got this coffee from a friend of mine. My wife was looking to drop a few pounds and I thought why not? After 3 weeks she lost 7 pounds with no side effects at all. She loves the taste of the coffee and has an increased energy level/alertness without jitters. I don't drink coffee so I did not test it myself. I gave a weeks supply to my brother and he lost 3 pounds. Again no side effects just increased energy. I don't know the science behind the coffee but it did work. Robert

I was trying to drop about 10 pounds for a vacation we were going on and a friend had me try <a href="http://www.boresha-bskinny-coffee.com/bskinny-skinny-coffee.php>Skinny Coffee</a> . I was not a fan of coffee before and to be honest I still dont think of coffee as a favorite drink but I can tell you that I did lose about 8 pounds in two weeks without really changing anything other than drinking that coffee. Can't say for sure it was the coffee but if I need to drop a few quick pounds again, I will certainly drink the skinny coffee. I think the company site is http://www.boresha-bskinny-coffee.com . I saw a comment below with another site but it looks like that is just the science behind the coffee. Anyway, just my 2 cents

Hello all. After reading most reviews on the Boresha product, I decided to give you all a real fair review on the products. First I have to be totally honest with you guys and tell you I am with Boresha and have been since they started up. My wife and I joined in '07 we are the 24th distributors in the company. We took a year and a half off due to "life happens". We did stay in touch with our upline during this time and returned once all distractions were under control. My wife and I have been involved in Health and Wellness for several years, we decided before selling anything we needed to be our own testimonials. Well after drinking both the BSkinny Coffee and BSkinny Tea all our family and friends are now drinking it as well. It is safe, it works and yes both are delicious. I am not saying this because I work for Boresha I say this because of what it has done for me, my wife, my daughter and several of our friends. The fat burning works beyond what you can imagine especially with the tea. Most important though is to get people to follow directions because when they dont as with all diets they are doomed for failure. The best thing anyone can possibly do is read on our products. They DO have many years of research behind them, not just because Dr. Allen says so. Dr. Allen is well known for her research and having quality products above all. When Dr. Allen was involved with GNC it again was very successful for both parties, but now because the product she is involved with being coffee it is not looked upon seriously. Is it because Boresha is Direct Marketing (MLM or Network)? Has anyone ever heard of Avon or Amway or Shacklee. These are all companies that took their products to market the same way and have been around for quite a while. Boresha will be as well, while we are young I have great belief in all our products because they are what the name means, "to make better, to make superb". I hope I didnt put anyone to sleep and I really hope if you dont need skinny coffee try our regular Estates Coffee. You will like what we have, that I promise. As for info here is my website it has my phone number on it and its not a sales ploy if you really want to know or learn about our stuff read on it. www.2bhealthy.igetpaidtodrinkcoffee.com Thanks and good health

To all those who are having such trouble finding the patent for the Boresha Skinny coffee you can follow these instructions to finding it. 1. Go to www.google.com/patents. 2. Type "Ann Dewees" in the search bar. 3. TA DA! You will find several patents under her name. I clicked on the first result it brought up and found the information for the coffee, tea, and other products listed. I hope this helps!

I can only talk about my own experience. I'm a food addict and over the years I've gained an extra 50 pounds. I could diet and I did and I'd lose the weight, but it would come back as soon as the diet ended. I couldn't ever keep it up. Boresha doesn't say the coffee will make you lose weight, they say it will burn fat and give you more energy. What it has done for me is turn my appetite and cravings "off." So it isn't the coffee that creating my weight loss. It's the fact that I'm not hungry and the fattening stuff I used to eat doesn't even appeal to me. It's been like a gastric bypass without any surgery. I can't speak for other people, but for me this product line is like a miracle. I feel free for the first time in decades. And I'm not going to give you my website because this post isn't about selling anything, it's just a testimonial to one of the best things that's happened to me.

I tried this coffee. I bought a 10 trail to see if it would work. It really does work, but it wreaked havoc on my body. I had caffiene jitter all day, headches, stomach cramps and had trouble sleeping. No of this happens to me when I drink regular coffee. So for me the 4 pounds I lost was probably due to feeling generally lousy, and not wanting to eat, not from this product. To me, it felt like an ephedrine-based diet drug in coffee form. No thanks!

I'm a big coffee drinker, I grind the beans myself and I like it strong. BUT...one cup of this stuff sent my heart into palpitations for several hours. It really scared me. And I didn't know it was skinny coffee until long after the fact. My advice is to stay away from this stuff.

My wife, wanting to lose a few lbs, started drinking the tea 4 weeks ago and really did not alter eating habits, etc. She is down 2 pant sizes- Same with my daughter. I am very active, work out daily, started on the coffee not for fat burning but for prolonged energy- And yes that aspect is just as effective as the fat burning properties. I highly recommend these products- based on what I have seen and felt, they do exactly what they say they will do.

if you are so gullible to spend 30 dollars for 10 days worth of coffee beans, the program is for you !!! There is no weight loss plan at all so it ends up as just a business scheme and nothing more...the "be skinny" is just in your mind...not theirs. I returned mine to get my 30 dollars back (I did not expect to get their 5 dollar "shipment fee") and encountered such rudeness and inappropriate behavior that I was so glad to be rid of the scheme. A little old carrot topped guy followed me out the door and vented his anger at me as well...buyer beware

Hello and thanks for all the comments...it's been very interesting reading all that has been posted. My cousin has introduced me to this company mainly because she knows how I love getting/staying in good health. Because of the Boresha products, she has lost 25 lb. Even knowing her succes I have been very skeptical about pursuing a business opportunity with Boresha due to some of the ingredients in the products namely Sucrolose. Sucrolose is a sugar. Sugar, as we all know, is bad for the body. Does anyone know how much is actually in the products? It seems odd to me that sugar would be added to something that purports to be so healthy. I listened to an (audio) interview Dr. Allen did with someone and she blasted Stevia, a natural sweetner, as being one of the most dangerous sweetners out there. I was blown away at that, but not once did she blast Aspartame, etc. or any of the harmful neurological side-effects of aritifical sweetners. Also, I have read repeatedly what Buffered Caffeine is, but I'd like to know what the process is of buffering the caffeine. What was done to the caffeine? I find it odd that I can't find this anywhere. Are there other chemicals added to the "buffering" process that aren't listed on the back of the product's packaging that could actually be harmful to us? I am looking to help provide financially for my family of five. I would love an opportunity like this, but I don't want to promote anything that could hurt people in the long-run. I greatly appreciate your comments and/or research on these matters. Thanks!!

I completely thought that coffee is low-glycemic, but more thought it helps burn fat, because it increases metabolism, or so I thought. Then I did some research, and it turns out that when you go on a diet, one of the first things they tell you is stop drinking coffee, and the American Diabetes Research institute themselves say it actually spikes insulin and glucose levels EVEN if its DECAF. Whoa, that stopped me in my tracks! I came across the BSkinny coffee recently, I'm big into organic and low-glycemic, and I've discovered a couple things: 1- I lost measurable inches in a WEEK drinking the coffee (If you weren't told to Measure yourself, thats the most important thing, its about FAT loss NOT weight loss. I'm doing the 90 day challenge as we speak. 2-The coffee tastes great, even black, and I don't drink black coffee EVER, this is not a coffee "drink" it is actually AA arabica beans, organic AND fair trade, which are the finest beans in the world, literally. 3- the Bsweet product I'm even super impressed with also, because its the only sweetener I've ever found that is Not artificial (Acai sweet), low glycemic/diabetic and kid friendly and Really does taste like sugar. I'm continuing to do more research, but the ACTUAL research so far, including my own experience is telling me I had some ideas that were simply incorrect. There are probably 30 cited references to in-vivo (people) studies and articles and tests to back this info at www.BoreshaResearch.com.

I am a Personal Trainer.....I had one of my clients on this coffee....She drank it religiously for two months as instructed and did not lose one pound..........I drank the coffee and the tea myself and ended up in the hospital with Pneumonia......No one can verify where Dr. Allen went to school or any of these supposed patents she claims to have.......And whenever I asked my upline about it they tried to brainwash me about how I should just continue to sell these terrible products and convince me that somehow my client was not taking the products properly and that is why she did not lose weight even though they were the ones that instructed her how to take the products......If you are considering selling or taking Boresha I would run in the other direction.....These products made me sick and are a potential health hazard and Dr. Allen is going to hurt someone with her ignorance and greed...........She claims these products are organic but I suspect they have a diet pill in them which is highly dangerous..........

I really think that there are no magic pill for loosing weight and as a result there are bad consequences when it comes to diet pills.

The "sugar" is diabetic friendly, made from acai berry and kiwi and looks and feels like real sugar. The creamer is yummy too. My sponsor has lost 65 lbs and gotten off her diabetic medication. The coffee gives me an extra boost and I no longer feel lethargic, I get quite excited and don't crave carbs and sugar as much and stop eating whereas before I would keep going.

Now that is not a natural sweetener. Also in the ingredients are Natural Kiwi flavor and other natural flavors. What are natural flavors and how are they produced? Dr Allen is a Phd (from what I can gather) not a medical doctor and I think we all know how the (Dr.) has been used used to mislead people into thinking the person was a medical doctor. The CEO used to be a car salesman. Now we all know a car salesman will tell you what you want to hear but the credibility is not there. People lose weight on the products because the products are a substitute for the incorrect eating habits they had. The person who introduced me to Boresha outlined how they used to eat and what they are doing now and guess what? if they had just stayed away from McDonalds and 7 Eleven and started just mild walking they would have lost the same amount of weight. The flip side I will say that if it helped them lose weight and made them feel better then why not take the products but leave the hype of trying to make money out of the equation because that can be devastating financially.

skinny coffee

January 15, 2011 | by chiparip

I'm a big coffee drinker, I grind the beans myself and I like it strong. BUT...one cup of this stuff sent my heart into palpitations for several hours. It really scared me. And I didn't know it was skinny coffee until long after the fact. My advice is to stay away from this stuff.

B skinny review

November 24, 2010 | by Karen Sbarbaro

I tried this coffee. I bought a 10 trail to see if it would work. It really does work, but it wreaked havoc on my body. I had caffiene jitter all day, headches, stomach cramps and had trouble sleeping. No of this happens to me when I drink regular coffee. So for me the 4 pounds I lost was probably due to feeling generally lousy, and not wanting to eat, not from this product. To me, it felt like an ephedrine-based diet drug in coffee form. No thanks!

Boresha Skinny Coffee

July 14, 2010 | by Lois Levy

I can only talk about my own experience. I'm a food addict and over the years I've gained an extra 50 pounds. I could diet and I did and I'd lose the weight, but it would come back as soon as the diet ended. I couldn't ever keep it up. Boresha doesn't say the coffee will make you lose weight, they say it will burn fat and give you more energy. What it has done for me is turn my appetite and cravings "off." So it isn't the coffee that creating my weight loss. It's the fact that I'm not hungry and the fattening stuff I used to eat doesn't even appeal to me. It's been like a gastric bypass without any surgery. I can't speak for other people, but for me this product line is like a miracle. I feel free for the first time in decades. And I'm not going to give you my website because this post isn't about selling anything, it's just a testimonial to one of the best things that's happened to me.

To all those who are having such trouble finding the patent for the Boresha Skinny coffee you can follow these instructions to finding it. 1. Go to www.google.com/patents. 2. Type "Ann Dewees" in the search bar. 3. TA DA! You will find several patents under her name. I clicked on the first result it brought up and found the information for the coffee, tea, and other products listed. I hope this helps!

Skinny Coffee....a true report

April 9, 2010 | by Chuck Rider

Hello all. After reading most reviews on the Boresha product, I decided to give you all a real fair review on the products. First I have to be totally honest with you guys and tell you I am with Boresha and have been since they started up. My wife and I joined in '07 we are the 24th distributors in the company. We took a year and a half off due to "life happens". We did stay in touch with our upline during this time and returned once all distractions were under control. My wife and I have been involved in Health and Wellness for several years, we decided before selling anything we needed to be our own testimonials. Well after drinking both the BSkinny Coffee and BSkinny Tea all our family and friends are now drinking it as well. It is safe, it works and yes both are delicious. I am not saying this because I work for Boresha I say this because of what it has done for me, my wife, my daughter and several of our friends. The fat burning works beyond what you can imagine especially with the tea. Most important though is to get people to follow directions because when they dont as with all diets they are doomed for failure. The best thing anyone can possibly do is read on our products. They DO have many years of research behind them, not just because Dr. Allen says so. Dr. Allen is well known for her research and having quality products above all. When Dr. Allen was involved with GNC it again was very successful for both parties, but now because the product she is involved with being coffee it is not looked upon seriously. Is it because Boresha is Direct Marketing (MLM or Network)? Has anyone ever heard of Avon or Amway or Shacklee. These are all companies that took their products to market the same way and have been around for quite a while. Boresha will be as well, while we are young I have great belief in all our products because they are what the name means, "to make better, to make superb". I hope I didnt put anyone to sleep and I really hope if you dont need skinny coffee try our regular Estates Coffee. You will like what we have, that I promise. As for info here is my website it has my phone number on it and its not a sales ploy if you really want to know or learn about our stuff read on it. www.2bhealthy.igetpaidtodrinkcoffee.com Thanks and good health

Tried Boresha's Skinny Coffee - Seems to work

February 27, 2010 | by Cassie Southern

I was trying to drop about 10 pounds for a vacation we were going on and a friend had me try

Skinny Coffee

January 26, 2010 | by Robert Holland

I got this coffee from a friend of mine. My wife was looking to drop a few pounds and I thought why not? After 3 weeks she lost 7 pounds with no side effects at all. She loves the taste of the coffee and has an increased energy level/alertness without jitters. I don't drink coffee so I did not test it myself. I gave a weeks supply to my brother and he lost 3 pounds. Again no side effects just increased energy. I don't know the science behind the coffee but it did work. Robert

It is interesting

November 13, 2009 | by Skeptic

I'm researching this because my 74 year old father decided to try this diet, against my advice. So far, I have nothing conclusive that can make or break this product. I have yet to find the actual patent held by Dr. Allen, but I have my suspicions that it is not as broad as she would have us believe. Neither caffeine nor buffering are new, or patentable. I believe her patent is on a product cleverly named "Buffered Caffeine(tm)" containing, you guessed it, buffered caffeine paired with a specific non-cephalic carbohydrate. Just to be clear, "buffered" caffeine is still caffeine, and there is no difference in its physiological effect, it just releases at a slower rate and has no bitter taste. The lack of bitterness requires less sweetener to mask it, making it suitable for the "Infused Fruit" product, which is less sweet than sucrose and does not trigger the cephalic response from the brain. This prevents the release of unneccessary insulin into the blood stream, subsequently preventing a drop in blood sugar levels (the body reacts to this drop by making us hungry). I would like to see an FDA review of this product, but that will likely never happen since it is marketed as a dietary supplement and is therefore not subject to approval before it is distributed. What really bothers me is that all of the so-called "Certifications" this product touts come from private organizations that are all partially owned by Dr. Allen. They make claims to be "Government Certified" but that is extremely vague. I can get a letter stamped at the post office and call it government certified. I want to know what department of the Federal government certified them, exactly what certs have they been awarded, and what kind of scrutiny they had to face to earn these certs.

just thought id share

I havent looked into it yet but I understood the low glycemic effect to mean that because the caffine is buffered it would not effect your blood sugar. I remember reading that caffine can mimic a spike in you blood sugar and your body reacts as if it had sugar. I read that I think in a Atkins diet book, or one of those no carb deals, they recomend no coffee for that reason. I hope it works cuz i love coffee but but i worry about my adreanals and it hipes me up and who wouldnt like to loose a few lbs. :)Terry

Thanks Ange

Thanks for posting your interesting thoughts. I haven't tried Boresha's coffee. But I toned back my blog post above based on your feedback. Much appreciated.

Skinny Coffee

October 6, 2009 | by Ange

After reviewing both Boresha's website and the scientist behind the coffee, Dr. Ann de Wees Allen, it's not just the coffee that is low glycemic, but an actual compound that is added to the coffee - a certified low glycemic, natural sweetener (Acai Sweet) that I believe is allowing them to add to the claims of low glycemic, hunger control, and combating stress related eating. The Thermogenic or fat burning properties obviously aren't typically found in coffee (too bad though), and seems that the thermogenesis isn't from the low glycemic part but from the 'buffered caffeine'. There are a few clinical trials and studies (which is impressive for a coffee product) but found must were linked through the site, www.skinnysciencecoffee.com. I can understand how you originally felt, but after looking through the technical and scientific research on the Skinny Coffee product I've actually found this to be a pretty riveting discovery. Obviously, after is all said and done, the proof is in the pudding, or mug. :) Have you tried it and does it work?
