If you’ve recently purchased Valentus Slim Roast Coffee (the Brazilian formulation), you may have questions as to how to properly prepare and use it so that you get the BEST results possible.
At one time, I was a Valentus Rep and although I am no longer, that does NOT negate the positive benefits I gained from the coffee. The only reason I am no longer a rep is because, prior to joining Valentus, I was already having success in a different company. I simply wanted the coffee to be an “add-on” since my company didn’t offer coffee and I LOVE coffee! lol
But, a highly-respected (non-business affiliated) mentor & friend suggested that I focus on ONE company and so… that’s what I did.
Anyway, during the time I was ‘with’ Valentus, I joined a Facebook group dedicated to sharing success stories YET… there were some who sadly weren’t getting results.
Through my own personal experiences, as well as those shared by some of the more successful Slim Roast drinkers, I learned of some things about what it would take to make certain results were achieved.
Now, there are the “corporate standard” instructions, and then there are various tips that have been shared by individuals who have used it and gotten results from it.
Today, I will share a bit of both with you…
How To Use Valentus Slim Roast Coffee:
*If you’d prefer to hear this information rather than read it, play the video below*
1. WHEN TO DRINK SlimRoast
The corporate instructions (for the Brazilian roast) suggest to drink the coffee 30-60 minutes before a meal. Those instructions, however, do NOT specify whether that meal should be breakfast, lunch or dinner.
But most people choose to prepare and drink it first thing in the morning.
Now, I’ve heard one person (who was very successful with getting results with this coffee) recommend waiting 60 min. before eating so that the appetite suppressing ingredients can REALLY kick in.
Personally, I DO find it to be true that if I wait a little longer than 30 minutes, I am not as prone to eat a whole lot during my meal. But if you already have a small appetite, then 30 min. before a meal should suffice.
QUICK TIP: Know Thyself & Act Accordingly
I had somewhat of an “epiphany” about WHEN to drink the coffee, which was basically, to think about the time of day that you need it most.
The coffee has ingredients that are designed to curb the appetite and reduce cravings overtime. So ask yourself,
“What part of the day do I find my appetite and/or cravings to be the strongest?“
Personally, I am a night owl and my appetite and cravings kick in during the evening/nighttime.
Sooo… it would stand to reason that I should probably drink the coffee in the evening, not only because I’m up working anyway, but also because that’s when I’m most prone to eat things not conducive to my goals.
Consider yourself and when you feel you’d need it the MOST (if drinking it in the evening, I recommend no more than 3-4 hours before your bedtime, as it might boost your energy and keep you up!)… even if that means having it TWICE a day, which you’ll find out more about in a bit.
2. HOW TO PREPARE Valentus Slim Roast Coffee
Depending on how strong or weak you like your coffee, use anywhere from 4 to 8 oz of hot (NOT boiling) water.
In case you’re not aware, there is a new formulation of Slim Roast (Brazilian) that came out in December 2016. The original formula (Italian) said you could use 10-14 oz. of water.
When the new SlimRoast version came out, I believe many were still trying to use the instructions from the old formula.
I did the same thing and discovered that using 12 oz. of water made the coffee taste too weak (almost to the point of tasting more like tea than coffee) and did not produce the results I was accustomed to getting.
But once I realized that the packaging of the NEW version said to use 4-8 oz. of water, I used about 6 oz. and noticed that, when you use less water, you get a better tasting coffee and (in my opinion) better results since it’s not so diluted.
My personal suggestion to better dissolve the coffee is to put the hot water into your cup FIRST, then add and stir in the coffee. Stir well. There still may be a small amount of undissolved settlement left at the bottom when you’re done, that is common and nothing to be alarmed about.
Now, if you prefer a cold coffee, feel free to use cold water although, the coffee may not dissolve well in cold water.
What you CAN do is stir it into a little bit (an ounce or so) of hot water, THEN add cold water.
Or… you could prepare the coffee using half the amount of hot water you normally would to make it more ‘concentrated’, then add ice and stir – kind of like how iced coffee is typically prepared.
3. WHAT TO PUT IN SlimRoast
Add creamer and sweetener of choice BUT, you’ll probably get better results if you use something other than refined sugar such as: stevia, xylitol, raw honey, evaporated cane juice, etc.
In terms of creamer; if you prefer dairy, I recommend using heavy whipping cream, or half and half.
For flavored creamer, I suggest using Coffee Mate Natural Bliss, as they have fewer ingredients and are a little more “natural” as compared to the regular Coffee Mate creamers AND (according to their website) they NOW offer almond or coconut milk creamers if you don’t do dairy!
Check your local store for availability, although you can still use regular almond, cashew, coconut, etc. ‘milks’ if you don’t want to use dairy products.
4. HOW MANY Valentus Slim Roast Packets Per Day?
The instructions on the packaging do not specify how many times a day to drink SlimRoast (Brazilian Roast), however; the corporate website says: “For maximum weight management results, drink one SlimRoast 2 times per day.“
But many people drink just one per day and still have great success – even if they split one packet in half and drink twice a day that way.
Find what works best for you. If one packet per day isn’t producing the desired results, try 2 packets.
Some even choose to add half a packet of SlimROAST to half a serving of their regular coffee and do two cups of that each day. Again, find the variation that works best for you.
