Skinny Coffee Club Review

Edit: I finished my two months of drinking Skinny Coffee with and without out working out. These are the results of both months! WARNING: long post! ;)

I will always promote eating healthy and working out FIRST if you want to lose weight. Don’t treat this product as a magical item that will instantly make you slimmer. You will always have the best results if you combine any booster with healthy eating and regular exercise. It’s no use to take boosters and just go on with eating unhealthy food. Remember: being healthy should be a lifestyle change, not a quick fix or a crash diet! ;)

Drinking coffee to lose weight?

Two months ago I was contacted by Skinny Coffee Club and they asked me if I wanted to try the coffee and be an ambassador for Skinny Coffee! I was quite curious how a coffee was going to make me lose weight, feel less bloated and give me more energy so I said yes.

Skinny Coffee is completely organic and vegan. Here are the ingredients:

Organic Green Coffee beans, Chlorogenic Green Coffee bean extract (50% powder), Siberian Ginseng, Garcinia Cambogia, 100% pure Matcha powder, Spirulina, Wheatgrass, Organic Brazilian Coffee.

Many of these ingredients are known for firing up your metabolism and make you burn more. Green coffee (unroasted coffee beans) for instance is known for aiding with weight loss. Other ingredients like matcha, spirulina and wheatgrass will help you get more energy. So when I saw the ingredients I thought: “This might work!”

If you want to try Skinny Coffee as well, you can use the code ANVERELLE20 to get 20% off your order – everytime!

Skinny Coffee: The Plan

So I tested the Skinny Coffee for two full months. The first month I will just drink the coffee and not work out. This is to see how much effect it will have if you just drink the coffee and do nothing else. In other words: minimum effort! ;)

The second month I will work out like I normally do. This is to see if Skinny Coffee can benefit your workouts if you’re looking for that extra boost!

Side note: With Skinny Coffee you’re not only getting the coffee; you get a food plan and an exercise plan too! I already have healthy eating habits and I have my own workout routine, so I decided not to stick with either of the plans. But if you want to go at full force and follow them I’d say go for it! :)

Skinny Coffee + No Working Out

Skinny Coffee Club Review Anverelle

Starting with week 1 of Skinny Coffee with no exercise – 57,3 kg and 34,9 % body fat.

September 7th: Yay, my first Skinny Coffee package arrived! The first thing I notice is – quite obviously – the smell of coffee: yum! I’m normally not such a coffee drinker, but the rich smell definitely made me curious to try this. First thing the next morning I boiled some water, put one teaspoon of Skinny Coffee in my French press and waited until it was brewed. The first taste was surprising for me. I don’t know if it’s just me being silly but I kind of expected the coffee to have a different taste than – well, coffee! The taste was actually quite good. It’s a lot less bitter than black regular coffee so that was a big plus for me! I drink my Skinny Coffee black but if you want you can add cream or sugar. To stay in the “completely vegan coffee”, you can add almond milk and stevia instead :)

So the first big hurdle was cleared: I liked the taste of it. Now the second one: results! Here’s how it went down week by week:

Results:

Skinny Coffee Club Review Anverelle Results

I kept track of my weight, fat and muscle percentage for four weeks.

Week 1:
After only one week I had already lost 0,5 kg without doing anything. I felt less bloated. Normally after every meal my belly would swell up a lot – as if I instantly had gained weight right there and then. This was now less and of course I also felt more energetic. If you’re not used to drinking coffee, it’s pretty normal you’ll feel a spike of energy levels ;) My scale also indicated I’d lost 0,3% of fat. My muscle percentage obviously stayed the same because I didn’t work out. So I lost 0,5 kg and 0,3 % of fat just by drinking the Skinny Coffee!

Week 2:
The following weeks would be less intense; it might be because your body gets used to the higher energy levels after a week and burns less quicker than in the first week. I’m not sure. Anyway, in the second week I lost 0,3 kg and 0,2% of fat. Still really good though!

Also, I thought to have some extra boost and drink 1 cup of green tea as well during the day. Let me tell you, it didn’t go well for me. I got serious stomach aches :( For a moment I was worried it was the coffee, but I only got stomach aches those two times when I had a cup of green tea. So I stopped drinking the extra cup of green tea and was fine afterwards. No more green tea for me then!

Skinny Coffee Club Review Anverelle

Right before the start of week 3. Things were going so good and I never felt so slim since I completed my BBG guide! And then of course Mother Nature decided it was time to mess things up, lol ;)

Week 3:
Bad week. My hormones were going crazy between week 3 and 4 because of ‘that time of the month’ and I basically wanted to eat everything bad that came in my sight, lol. I’m very lucky I never get painful cramps but I always have serious cravings and those are sometimes hard to deal with. (Let me know in the comments if you manage to bypass your cravings that specific week!) So this week I had to deal mainly with crazy cravings and a bit of bloating. But despite the pizza, chocolate and crisps I still managed to lose 0,2 kg and 0,2 % fat percentage. Hurray!

Week 4:
By the end of this week, the cravings were finally gone. But as you can tell on my chart I gained 0,1 kg  and that’s probably because I was on my period, eating all the things and feeling bloated. It’s still just 100 grams and 0,1 % of body fat, so absolutely nothing worth fussing about. You’re not even going to notice it.

I worked out twice in that whole month – I tried not to, but I’m used to working out twice or three times a week so it was a bit of a challenge! – so you’ll see a raise of muscle percentage in the last two weeks. Remember that losing muscle also means ‘losing weight’! So not all the weight loss was fat only.

To round things up:

I lost almost 1 kg in one month. I also lost 0,6 % of body fat, which is not bad. The recommended loss of body fat a month is in average 1%, so I think I did quite well for barely working out! I also felt less bloated. Like Skinny Coffee recommends, I think it’s best if you combine the coffee with exercise (and healthy food!) But at the moment I’m quite happy with my results considering I didn’t work out and was on my period somewhere between week 3 and 4. Those are all factors that have messed with my results, but in the end every woman gets her period and I didn’t want to leave anything out regarding some factors and results. Honesty is the most important thing with reviews! :)

Skinny Coffee + Working Out

Skinny Coffee review Anverelle

Final result after one month of Skinny Coffee + workouts

October 9th: First day of my second month! I’m starting with 55,7 kg33,7% fat and 28,8 % muscle. For the next four weeks, the goal was to work out 2-3 times a week. This has always been the case, except for the last week. I was very busy with job interviews and other things, so I didn’t get the chance to go to the gym. I did one home workout in the last week, but nothing I can compare with going to the gym in my case :)

Week 1:
First weigh-in after one week of Skinny Coffee plus workouts! Not so surprisingly, I had gained 300 grams because I had put on 0,2% of fat, but also gained 0,4% muscle. Yay! So I gained just a little bit of weight, but it’s mostly muscle and that weights more than fat.

Week 2:
In this week something worth mentioning happened. I didn’t have my coffee one morning (1 day only) before I went to the gym to work out. And seriously, I didn’t have the same energy level like other days! It was a bit of a blah-workout, but I tried powering through it until I had burned 500 calories (struggled hard, lol) and called it a day. So I definitely feel like the coffee gives me more energy, which is great because that means it will give you that pre-workout boost you sometimes need to get started!

In this week I had gained 600 grams, which was again mostly muscle (0,4%). I had only put on 0,1% fat which is good!

Week 3:
Phew, I’m already in the half of my second month! I lost almost one kilo (900 grams), which was mostly fat (-0,4%, yay!) Sadly, I also lost my muscle that I had built up from the week before (-0,3%). So less muscle, but also less fat.

Week 4:
Last week! Not a lot of weight loss (200 grams). Because I didn’t work out that week, I lost another 0,5% of my muscle percentage, which was really sad. Losing muscle percentage goes so fast – I was back at the start muscle wise. That might have been because I focused more on cardio this month, instead my usual BBG type HIIT’s. I definitely feel that if I had done more HIITs, I would have better results. Note to self: continue BBG asap! ;)

Results:

results-skinny-coffee-second-month-with-workouts

I kept track of my weight, fat and muscle percentage for four weeks.

To round things up:

I basically stayed around the same weight that month (55-56 kg). I think I’ve reached my personal lowest weight. I don’t think I can go any lower – and I don’t want to. To give you an idea: I haven’t weighed 55 kg since highschool! From March 2015, when I started eating healthy and tracking my weight, until now: I’ve never been 55 kg at any point. Until today! So I do think Skinny Coffee gave me that last push I needed, weight-wise.

In regards of fat and muscle percentage – I believe I can do way better than that! I only lost 0,2% of fat and stayed the same on my muscle percentage. I actually had better results last month, without working out. It’s a bit confusing, but not all that strange. I had a lot more stress the last month and stress is known to play a role in weight gain, so probably fat percentage as well. Working out also makes you think you can take more treats, because “you’ll train them off later anyways”. And as mentioned before, I did cardio instead of HIITs this month so I didn’t burn off as much as I usually do.

Will I continue drinking Skinny Coffee?

Skinny Coffee review Anverelle

Yes. I did lose almost -2 kg and -1,4% in fat while drinking this coffee, so I did have some results with Skinny Coffee! I basically haven’t been slimmer than right nowI would have never thought I would weigh 55 kg again (highschool was the last time!), but there is definitely some more work to do on the fat and muscle percentage.

So to give you my ultimate conclusion:

Skinny Coffee review Anverelle

Skinny Coffee has helped me with losing weight and keeping it. It has given me more energy and bloating is almost a thing of the past for me now. Personally, it’s a great pre-workout boost as well. Before, I practically never had coffee and certainly not completely black! And now, I love my cup of coffee in the morning – there’s something about the smell and the taste that I really like. Plus, the benefits that come with Skinny Coffee are pretty good ;) I’m going to continue drinking it! <3

    whaatt?!!! only 1 kilo or 500grams weigh lose in a month? seriously? are you joking or am i getting this inf wrong !!! i started using skinny coffee now it’s been only three days. after reading this, i really don’t feel like using it.

    • Reply Anverelle 26 oktober 2018 at 12:51

      I lost more or less 2kg in two months; the first month I didn’t even work out and still I lost weight. Remember, it’s not some magical coffee that’s going to instantly slim you down! :-) It’s healthier to lose weight slowly, rather than going like a rocket. It also depends on how much you weigh – in the review I wrote that I was at my lowest weight (55 kg) that I could healthily maintain. I haven’t been 55 kg since I was in highschool! Again, I’m not saying that this is a magical slimming down coffee – it just gives you a little extra push metabolism-wise :-) Hope this helped!

  • Reply Honor Jacobs 22 september 2018 at 15:10

    Your body can fluctuate 4 pounds either way each day depending on the time of day… So I don’t think £55 a month to lose 1kg a month is worth it at all.

    Sorry to hear people have had problem with SC arriving. I’ve never had a delay with it arriving. Hope it won’t happen yet but I have lots in stock because I bought loads during offers. Definitely shop about to get best deals. Will get some more in soon so don’t have a gap! First month I lost just over half stone, only are healthier and cut drinking down, not much exercise. Hope to achieve near to that month 2!

    This company is more or less a scam. Maybe in the beginning they did send out products and fulfilled orders properly but right now, I’m seeing more comments from people across, blogs, instagram and facebook about having placed an order and not having received anything for months.

    I personally wanted to try out the coffee so I ordered it. However, despite having promised free shipping, I was charged POSTAGE fees of £5.95. What?? Wasn’t shipping supposed to be free? And I only found out after checking my Paypal account. So they are secretly charging people extra hidden costs?

    Also, all of my messages went unread on facebook and I only ever received automated responses such as “Our customer service officer will be in touch with you as soon as possible!” but I never got any sort of response for days on end. I got so frustrated I ended up filing a dispute claim on Paypal and won the case. I got my refund but DAMN was I lucky to have decided to use Paypal to check out this time! 10/10 IT’S A SCAM!!

      Hi Trudy, recently I get more and more comments that people are not receiving their Skinny Coffee. I myself am no longer an ambassador (e.g. I don’t post for them anymore) but I do continue to drink the coffee because I like it. They sell them at Holland & Barrett now so I haven’t been buying them online anymore (or receiving them from SC) and just get them whenever I’m in London. So sorry to hear so many orders are getting messed up!

          Hi Vicky, thanks for your comment! It is important to note that this is not a magical coffee that will make you slimmer while you sit on your couch. Having a healthy lifestyle like eating healthy and exercise at least once a week is a must. The Skinny Coffee is more of a supplement to your healthy lifestyle :-) Hope this helps! Have a nice day, Tessa

    yeah… I ordered it since april and it is september and I still have not got it and nobody at skinny coffee will return my money… they offer to send me more coffee if i pay the shipping but why would i do that again if i ordered in april and never recieved it?? this is a money making scam

    • Reply Anverelle 30 september 2017 at 18:51

      Hi Melissa,

      I’m sorry to hear about your order! I’m sure you’ve already tried to reach their customer service, but maybe try contacting them through another medium? A friend of mine also had her coffee quite late but she sent a couple of e-mails and in the end they sent another package of coffee – we’re afraid it probably got lost somewhere in the post office. I’d try e-mailing/contacting them again and explaining the situation. I hope it gets resolved soon!

    Losing a kilo a month is quite poor. If you eat 1200 calories a day you should be able to lose 1kg a week!!
    So I’m not too sure why one would invest in this product to lose only 1kg in a month.

    • Reply Anverelle 2 januari 2017 at 21:23

      Hi Sylvia! Personally I feel like eating maximum 1,200 calories is not enough. Losing 1 kg a week would be great, but I feel like this doesn’t sound very healthy.

      In the first month I lost almost 1kg. I don’t know if you’ve read that after the second month I felt like I couldn’t lose any more weight. I’m 1m55 and weigh around 55kgs – this gives a BMI of 22 to 23 which is perfectly healthy. There is no need to lose more weight. What IS true, is that my fat percentage could be better.

      The coffee is a booster, not a miracle worker ;)

  • Reply Rosiejoe 14 oktober 2016 at 17:41

    Please confirm you lost 5kg which = 11 pounds in the first week? Then an additional 3kg = 6 pounds, then by the 4th week you gained back 15 lbs in a week due to your period ? Leaving you with a total monthly loss of 1 kg=2 pounds.

    Please tell me I read this wrong , I am eager to see what happens when you exercise.

    • Reply Anverelle 16 oktober 2016 at 18:22

      Hi RosieJoe, thanks for your comment!
      I’m afraid you read it wrong :) I lost 500 grams (half a kilo) in the first week and 300 grams in the second week. I gained 100 grams because of my period (bloating, cravings, …) And by the end of the month, I did lost almost 1 kg in total.
      Hope it’s clear now! :)

      Hey Karen! Ja, ik vond toch ook ondanks een paar factoren dat ik wel een fijn resultaat had! Je moet ook denken dat ik amper iets deed van sport en mijn gewone (wel gezonde) eetpatroon volgde – het is dus echt minimale moeite :D Als je geen koffie lust, kan je misschien eens zo’n detox thee proberen. Als je eentje op het oog hebt, zou ik zeker veel reviews ervan lezen en goed de ingrediënten checken zodat je iets veilig en zuiver in je handen hebt. Thanks voor je comment! :)
