If you follow me on instagram (@wearsbyris), then you probably know that I meant to post this yesterday. I totally meant to post this yesterday…but I fell asleep mid-post. So, here it is today, with some added information (It may have been a blessing in disguise that I fell asleep?):
Queen B Official offers a multitude of coffees and teas to help stimulate the body. From weight management to skin care to aiding in stopping PMS cramps, they have it all. I decided to try a weight management coffee. I want to start off by saying that I usually take these products with a grain of salt and never really expect much. I’ll give you the product description of the coffee I used, its ingredients, it’s benefits, the formats in which you can buy it, directions, and what I did for the duration of my time consuming it.
I decided to go with the Green Coffee. The product description states that it’s “created from the highest quality organic green coffee beans…and the selected ingredients support your metabolism and aim to suppress appetite.” Some of the benefits include:
- Aids weight management
- Increases metabolic rate
- Suppresses appetite
- Increase energy levels
- Beneficial effects on hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Decreases blood glucose and insulin levels
You can order the green coffee in two formats: the 10-day and the 30-day. I opted to go with the 10-day for a couple of reasons. The first is that it was less expensive. The second is that I don’t like to order things unless I know that I like them first/I know that they work. Directions:
- Dissolve one sachet in a cup of 200mL of boiling water, 15 mins before breakfast.
- Add milk or sweetener as desired.
- You do not need to change your diet or exercise habits.
- However, for maximum results, it’s recommended that drinking 2-3 litres of water per day, eating clean foods for every meal, and exercising regularly (once a day).
- Organic Cofea Arabica Roasted (54%)
- Coffea Aribica Unroasted (6%)
- Rose Petal Extract
- Soy Powder.
So as I’d previously stated, I tried the 10-day pack. Below are the days which I drank the coffee in the morning, with a detailed description of what I added to it, what I did, etc.
Day One: Saturday, July 12: Consumed around 10:30 a.m. Nothing was added to the coffee. It tasted like burnt toast. Didn’t have breakfast afterwards. Hungry by 11:30 a.m. No workout.
Day Two: Sunday, July 13: Consumed around 10:20 a.m. Almond milk was added. The taste improved slightly, but nothing worth writing home about. Ate breakfast right after. Ate lunch around 3 p.m. No workout.
Day Three: Monday, July 14: Consumed around 6:30 a.m. Coffee sweetener was added. The taste improved impeccably. Drank it much faster today than the other two days. I also felt much more full after the sweetener was added. I ate breakfast around 8:30 a.m. Hungry by noon. Lunch was eaten at 12:30 p.m. Workout: 30-minute walk to the train station, 20-minute walk to the office, hour-long cardio kickboxing session.
Day Four: Tuesday. July 15: Consumed around 6:15 a.m. Coffee sweetener added. Same taste as yesterday. Breakfast eaten at 8:45 a.m. Hungry by 11:30 a.m. Lunch eaten at 12:30 p.m. Workout: 30-minute walk to the train station. 20-minute walk to the office. Hour-long cardio kickboxing.
Day Five: Wednesday, July 16: Consumed 6:20 a.m. Ate breakfast immediately after…I couldn’t wait the 15 minutes. I was hungry right after as well. I was hungrier than usual today. Lunch at 1:15 p.m. Workout: 20-minute walk to the office. 30-minute walk to dinner.
Day Six: Thursday, July 17: Consumed at 6:30 a.m. Added coffee sweetener and an espresso shot. Drank it extremely rapidly. Felt extremely full afterwards. Ate breakfast at 8:30 a.m. Hungry by 11:45 a.m. Lunch at 12:30 p.m. Workout: 30-minute walk to the train station. 20-minute walk to the office. Hour-long boxing workout.
Day Seven: Friday, July 17: Consumed around 6:30 a.m. Added coffee sweetener and an espresso shot. Ate breakfast at 8:30 a.m. Hungry at 11:30 a.m. Lunch at 12:30 a.m. Workout: 30-minute walk to the train station. 20-minute walk to the office.
Day Eight: Saturday, July 18: Consumed around 11 a.m. Added milk and sugar. No workout. Lunch eaten at 12:15 p.m.
Day Nine: Sunday, July 19: consumed around 11 a.m. Added milk, sugar, and an espresso shot. Lunch at 3:30 p.m. Workout: an hour and a half-long lacrosse game.
Day 10: Monday, July 20: attempted to consume around 6:30 a.m. My roommate’s cat got to my coffee before I did and drank out of my cup (gross) so I didn’t get to finish my cup. Added: coffee sweetener and an espresso shot. Breakfast: immediately. I was starving all morning/day. Workout: 20-minute walk to the office. 30-minute walk to the train station. Hour-long boxing workout.
Tuesday, July 21: This is my first day not drinking any of the coffee at all. Seeing as it’s only 9 a.m., there isn’t much I can add. I was hungry this morning but I ate breakfast right away. That held me off a little bit, but now that I’m in the office, I’m starting to get hungry again.
Would I recommend It? I think it depends on which standpoint you’re looking at. If you want to lose weight, I didn’t lose any. I already stated that I wasn’t expecting to, though, so this didn’t really come as a surprise. I also do a lot of weight training for lacrosse, and since muscle weighs more than fat, my weight wouldn’t have dropped anyway. If you want to try and lose weight with this coffee, I say go for it, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up.
Now, if you’re looking at it from an appetite suppressing standpoint, I recommend it. Since my roommate’s cat got to my coffee yesterday, and I didn’t have any today, I could definitely tell a difference. Not only was I hungry faster, but I was also hungrier longer.
