Coffee Trim Review
“This product is wonderful. I can’t believe it really works.” The one and only testimonial for Coffee Trim sounds promising, but there’s only one I could find.
Either not a lot of people have tried Coffee Trim yet or not a lot of people have much to say about it.
Coffee Trim is a morning coffee replacement with added appetite suppressing power that’s supposed to help you eat less so you lose weight.
It seems like everyone wants to eat less and lose weight. But can it really as simple as buying a new kind of coffee mix? I’m doubtful, but let’s take a look.
Inside the Bottle
Coffee Trim only has a few ingredients.
Fabuless – This is an appetite suppressant made of oat and palm oils. It suppresses appetite by activating the ileal brake.
The ileal is the section at the end of the small intestine. When the emulsified oat and palm oil get to the ilium and are still intact and not broken down, the ileal brake is activated. The ileal brake causes the motility of food in your digestive system to slow, or come to a halt. Slowly moving food means you will feel full longer and hopefully eat less.
Creamer – The creamer adds flavor and a smooth consistency to Coffee Trim.
Dried Coffee – The coffee contains 60 mg of caffeine, which is about as much as a regular cup of coffee.
Is There Clinical Research?
The real question is whether or not research backs up Coffee Trim’s ingredients. Research for the Fabuless appetite-suppressing ingredient is mixed.
According to one study performed on healthy men, Fabuless slowed down gastrointestinal transit time, which then suppressed appetite. 
Another clinical trial, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, showed that Fabuless had no effect on appetite or on food intake. 
Other research shows that Fabuless suppresses appetite, but only when it’s administered in a yogurt. In this study, Fabuless mixed with water or in solid food (muffin) had no effect on appetite. 
In one long-term clinical study, Fabuless’ effect on weight loss and management after major weight loss were tested. The group with Fabuless mixed in yogurt was less hungry four hours after yogurt intake. The active Fabuless group also saw a decrease in fat mass compared to placebo group. 
Research shows that caffeine increases thermogenic burn. This means more calories at rest and during physical activity.
Another clinical study shows that combining caffeine with a lower calorie diet results in fat loss. 
Coffee is the most popular caffeinated drink in the world. In one study, female participants who drank caffeinated coffee had higher thermogenic burn at night, which means they burned more calories at rest. 
Is Coffee Trim Easy to Use?
If you already drink a cup of coffee in the morning, Coffee Trim is super easy. It is a coffee powder meant to replace your morning coffee.
Coffee Trim is like other instant coffees; it just needs to be mixed with hot water. You can drink it once or twice daily. The more you drink, the more drastic results will be.

Is Coffee Trim Safe?
People who are caffeine sensitive may experience side effects from the 60 mg of caffeine content. Side effects of caffeine include headache, nausea and sleeplessness. The caffeine content in Coffee Trim should be close to a normal cup of coffee.
The creamer in Coffee Trim is a milk byproduct, so if you are lactose intolerant, this isn’t for you. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re pregnant or nursing.

If You Want to Return Coffee Trim
If you aren’t satisfied with your Coffee Trim purchase, there is a 30-day return policy. You can return the unused product within 30 days of the purchase date.
Unfortunately, you’ll be refunded only half what you paid, because they take a $25 handling and restocking fee out. That $25, plus what you pay to ship it back, probably means you’ll end up with $20 back, maximum. You are probably better off keeping Coffee Trim than returning it.

Does It Work?
It’s easy to see that the caffeine content in coffee is beneficial for weight and fat loss. The research on Fabuless appetite suppressant isn’t as clear, though. Some studies show positive effect on appetite and weight loss, while others show no effect at all. Further research needs to be done to solidify Coffee Trim’s claims for Fabuless.
With only one customer review online, it’s hard to tell what real customers think about Coffee Trim. If you already drink coffee in the morning and want to change up your drink, Coffee Trim could be a good option. But if you don’t already drink coffee, adding caffeine to your morning may provide weight loss effects.
There is a return policy, but you can only get back half of what you paid, at most. If you think it’s worth that risk, give Coffee Trim a try.
