South Beach Java

Can you lose weight by simply drinking coffee?

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

South Beach Java is a dieting blend that claims to help you lose weight, lose body fat, curb your appetite, speed up your metabolism and give you more energy for better workouts. South Beach Java is a freshly ground gourmet coffee that is fortified with supplements that help you lose weight and burn fat while curbing your appetite. This product would be great for those that enjoy drinking coffee and want to lose weight as well. To use the South Beach Java, you simply replace your daily cups of coffee with the dieting blend. South Beach Java is said to be clinically proven and offers a free sample to those that want to try it. The clinical trial that was done was completed in five different studies and involved 79 participants. These studies did show that South Beach Java did increase the baseline metabolic rate.

South Beach Java highlights the natural ingredients that are contained in the product. Beware of some of the ingredients though. One of the ingredients included in South Beach Java is bitter orange. The site states that bitter orange contains chemical compounds that increase calorie burning. Bitter orange and its extract are actually a legal ephedra-like nutrient. Bitter orange has been linked to instances of fainting, heart-rhythm disorders, heart attack and stroke. Since ephedra has been banned by the FDA, this is something to be cautious of.

PRO
  • Only requires drinking one cup of coffee per day
  • Great for those who love coffee
  • Offers weight loss benefits
  • Testimonials available
CON
  • Contains bitter orange which can have dangerous side effects
  • No evidence that the clinical trials were overseen by third party doctors
  • Gives hope that you can lose weight by simply drinking a cup of coffee
  • Does not provide guidance on diet or exercise
  • Mentions that product should be combined with diet and exercise in tiny print
  • Automatically enrolled in the monthly auto ship program
  • Very expensive when compared to regular coffee
INGREDIENTS

Some of the natural ingredients are displayed prominently on the site. Other ingredients are not easily identified. The ingredients available include:

  • Caffeine
  • Chromium Polynicotinate
  • Garcinia Cambogia
  • Bitter orange
  • Arabica coffee beans
ADMINISTRATION

Replace your daily coffee intake with South Beach Java.

DIET & EXERCISE

There is no specific direction given on what type of diet and exercise you should engage in on this program. There is a small mention that your average weight loss can be one to three pounds per week when you combine South Beach Java with a diet and exercise plan.

CONCLUSION

Dietary supplements are sometimes the subject of a lot of scrutiny. Often times pills, drinks, shakes and others are the product of clever marketing and very high priced materials. South Beach Java markets itself as a product that can help you lose weight and burn fat. Consumers should always do their research when it comes to diet products. South Beach Java contains bitter orange, which has been flagged as an ingredient that has ephedra-like effects on the body including things like heart attack, stroke and fainting. There are some supplements that are safe and they aid in weight loss, but even those encourage you to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. South Beach Java seems to be a very expensive way to drink coffee with some possibly dangerous side effects.

Saw no difference from any other coffee. It is next to/or impossible to get out before they ship you another order at a hefty cost! Cancel immediately after you receive your "free sample" or even better, the day after you request your free sample. Then you have time to decide if you want to purchase the coffee. It is very easy to order, impossible to get out before you are out some big bucks!

I agree with the others. Very, very misleading ads, offers you a "sample" and says that after 14 days they will send you the pound of coffee for 79.95. I received my coffee the day after the 14 days and they would not refund my money, nor let me send it back, just canceled my supposed order.

I agree with the previous person who reported the rip off by this company. I especifically told a person who called me to confirm the order for the sample, NOT to send me any coffe before I tried the sample. Yet, they send and charged me the $87+ and now I have to pay to send it back, with the hope they are going to reimburse only $79.99. I still have to see how true this is.

This is a big rip-off. Before you even receive your free trial to try it, they ship you a pound of coffe for $87.94. then you have tyo get an RMA to return it. I returned it almost a month ago and still have not received creidt. Plus you can't find anyone to help you when you call And most of the people that answer the phone are VERY difficult to understand.

Very strong and bitter. I didn't like the taste and it gave me the jitters. I ended up throwing it out. Horrible!
