Slimming Coffee

Postby rochelletan » Fri, 12 Feb 2016 5:40 pm

Hi, just wondering if anyone here ever tried slimming coffee? I was recommended to try it by someone, but it is quite pricey so I thought to check it out first.

I wonder if people stop and think how drinking 'slimming tea' or coffee could cause weight loss :???: Still, perhaps it remains a more convenient false promise than the commitment the guaranteed solution of taking exercise and taking care with your diet would provide.

Googling on 'slimming coffee', just to have a laugh at how it misrepresents it's action, I came upon this below linked. It reminds me of the Chinese powdered milk scandal, where melamine (that's Formica, the plastic veneer used on desk and kitchen worktops), was added as a bulking agent.

Alerts from the US-FDA
-----
'Public Notification: Lishou Slimming Coffee contains hidden drug ingredient
[10-23-2015] The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Lishou Slimming Coffee, a product promoted for weight loss. This product was identified by FDA during an examination of international mail shipments.Image of Lishou Slimming Coffee

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Lishou Slimming Coffee contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This product may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.

Health care professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of this product to FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event

Note: This notification is to inform the public of a growing trend of dietary supplements or conventional foods with hidden drugs and chemicals. These products are typically promoted for sexual enhancement, weight loss, and body building and are often represented as being “all natural.”

Melamine in milk, sibutramine in 'slimming coffee', hmmm, both amine compounds...

Same warning on other Chinese 'slimming coffee' brands too... [a random pick of two more]

'Public Notification: Body Beauty 5 Days Slimming Coffee Contains Hidden Drug Ingredient

Sibutramine... 'Sibutramine is a centrally-acting serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) structurally related to amphetamines... It is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance in the United States.'
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sibutramine

I'm surprised this drug hasn't been banned in Singapore, it sounds potentially dangerous...

I know how it could work: it'll give you the runs.

It works the same way as a glass of water preventing conception (pregnancy). It has to be used as the substitute (food, sex).

Caffeine inhibits hunger, so in that sense, it can slim you down. Also, I guess if you have a lactose intolerance, and have a hot latte, then that too can slim you down in its own unique way.

This is at risk of coming down to semantics, a debate re: cause and effect.
If coffee is slimming, wouldn't a slimmer simply drink that, rather than buying expensive 'slimming coffee'? By branding it as the latter, isn't the manufacturer suggesting it has weight-loss properties that regular coffee does not?

[Having had my usual 3 espressos today I'm in fired-up, yet still somewhat porky, pedant mode].

I tried this Fashion Slimming Coffee 4 years back, totally lost weight (like 7kg) as I just keep drinking fluids only due to dry mouth effect. Overall, I'm okay, still alive and kickin' 'til today. But still, will recommend go on healthy diet and clean eating to avoid future complications :)

People can come up with anything! Slimming coffee? Really!!! The fact that everyone wants to look slim and fit that people get fooled by such fake promises. Everyone should understand that how one can’t gain weight in one day, it isn’t possible to lose fat in a day or 2-days time. These products are just the gimmicks to gain money. Do exercise on daily basis to stay fit.

personally I know bodybuilders who drink coffee, without milk and sugar (of course) during their cutting/shredding phase.

Logic behind this is as sgstrait mentioned, caffeine inhibits hunger.
it also boosts metabolism and can be a great pre workout boost.

so yea, I guess this is the more 'legit' slimming coffee as compared to those fancy gimmicky marketed slimming coffee

Slimming coffee????

Raw coffee itself is sort of a slimming agent. Its main slimming attributes to Caffeine which is the main ingredient in most slimming pills.

Go for "Kopi-O" at any nearby coffeeshops and feel the pre-workout jitters and alertness which cost a fraction of commercial slimming pills.

Hope this helps!
