Obesity and overweight are among the serious health problems that affects the population globally. Obesity can have a negative impact on quality of life and also significantly reduces life expectancy. Obesity might contribute to cardiovascular dysfunction by end organ damage and hypertension. Recently, green coffee is used as a strategy for weight loss and weight maintenance as they increase energy expenditure and the decrease in metabolic rate during weight loss. Green coffee extract (GCE) is present in both green/raw coffee and roasted coffee, but much of the GCE is destroyed during the roasting process. In human subjects, it has been reported that the larger the coffee intake lesser the weight gain. In older adults, coffee consumption alters several glycaemic markers. Consumption of caffeinated coffee reduces long-term weight gain, which might be due to thermogenic effects and other pharmacologically active substances present in coffee. GCE modifies hormone secretion and glucose tolerance by facilitating the absorption of glucose from the distal, rather than the proximal part of the gastrointestinal tract. The aim of this pilot study is to assess the effectiveness of green coffee on weight management in Indian population. A total of 60 subjects both male and female aged between 18-70 years were enrolled in this study. This analysis excludes those who were pregnant, breast feeding, family planning, under 18 and on medication or any other health related issues.
