What it is and what we thought
I’ve been trying out something a little different recently, something that I held no real opinion on before so went into it with neutral feelings. I’ve tried lots of different diets in the past, all manner of lotions, potions, the weird and (not so) wonderful. I was asked if I’d like to try out Pure Green Skinny Coffee and was intrigued. Coffee & losing weight seems perfect doesn’t it? I am a huge fan of coffee so it wasn’t hard to agree to give this a go. Alonside eating better and taking more notice of ensuring I’m getting more of the good stuff like fruit and veg.
One thing I was really pleased to see was thereis no plastic involved in the packaging and the smell as you open it is amazing. This pack contains 28 bags – one per day of the 28 day programme – you should not have more than 2 per day.
Unroasted coffee beans – pure green coffee – are an essential ingredient in all our products, because they offer a range of positive health benefits. The chlorogenic acid in green coffee is believed to enhance the metabolism and aid detox, and one of the reasons we use green coffee in our beauty products is because it has a high capacity to retain moisture and helps hydrate the skin.
Very much like your average teabag these days they are in little pyramid style bags so it’s nice and easy to make, no measuring exact amounts of coffee or bean grinding involved.
The coffee contains:
- Coffee Arabica Unroasted (42%)
- Coffee Arabica Roasted (42%)
- Common Nettle (Urtica Dioica)
- Common Dandelion (Taraxacum Officinale)
- Coleus Forskohlii
- Raspberry Concentrate
- Natural Vanilla Flavour
To make the coffee all you need to do is add the bag to your cup, add 200ml of hot water and leave to steep for 3-5 minutes. Add milk to taste, I’m not personally a fan of balck coffee so did add a bit of semi skimmed and was pleasantly surprised to find it was a really nice coffee. Diet things I’ve often found in the past have been a bit disappointing tastewise but I quite happily drunk this.
In the back of my mind I think I was expecting this to really affect my stomach in some way, images of hours in the loo or cramps but I had none of that. I drank my coffee in the morning and didn’t have any problems at all.
It will be interesting to see how much weight I will have lost by the end of the 28 days, in the first week I lost 2lb and that was with having a naughty cake day so I’m very happy with that result.
N.B Not recommended if pregnant or breastfeeding.
