    Skinny Coffee?!

    This looks so wacked!
    It just looks like a scam. Could there be any validity to it's claims?
    Thoughts?

    If a food needs a website to make health claims, it's not a food? Michael Pollan principle in action here.

    Good point. It's fairly audacious. I guess I thought it was sort of funny and bizarre and thought I'd share.

    The big question is "why would you mess with coffee?" Coffee is amazing, full of antioxidants, and already a natural energy booster. I add a little cream and stevia/splenda and it is perfect.

    One of their claims I know is mooky on their site. Humans don't have much in the way of brown fat.

    Unless they put Ephedrine in it, the brown fat claim is likely false. And if they put ephedrine in it, I'm buying some haha

    I can remember the days (probably 10-12 years ago) when I would pop ephedrine like nothing. Ripped Fuel by Twinlabs was our Red Bull. I'll admit, I LOVE ephedrine.

    "Because Coffee causes FAT STORAGE in humans."

    Really? I have never heard that before at all.

    It's a really broad claim but any type of stress (coffee>> cortisol >> possible fat storage) can heighten the chance you store fat. Once again, with nonabusive use this is a very broad claim.
