Can coffee help you lose weight? Sounds ridiculous, I know, but a recent study suggests that an extract of unroasted coffee beans can do just that. The hypothesis is that the acid in this extract helps reduce the absorption of glucose. It’ll be interesting to see if further studies confirm this, and also whether this becomes the latest weight loss trend…you can already buy this extract in health food stores, and Starbucks is going to be marketing an energy drink, Starbucks Refreshers, that contains this.
