What’s your take on fat burning, detox drinks? Celebrities love them, nutritionists think they’re a sham. However, we’ve recently come across a new drink that has been very effective for Filipino consumers. Have you heard of Lean N Green Slimming Coffee? Here’s our Lean N Green Coffee review so that you can learn more about the product, as well as decide for yourself if the beverage is worth investing in.
What is Lean N Green Coffee?
Simply put, this is a healthy alternative to your daily coffee. Lean N Green Slimming Coffee is an instant coffee beverage that will speed up your weight loss journey. It provides an energy boost while lowering your appetite, removing toxins in your digestive tract, and improving your metabolism while converting fat into energy.
Note: Lean N Green Slimming Coffee is NOT a substitute for a good diet and exercise. The coffee is most effective when paired with healthy lifestyle choices.
Other than the fact it is a healthy weight loss coffee, their biggest selling points are that the coffee is:
- All natural, 100% Organic
- Sugar Free
- Halal Certified
- FDA Approved
What is inside Lean N Green Slimming Coffee?
Each box contains 7 sachets of coffee, weighing at 21 grams each for a total of 147 grams of product.
From net weight to nutritional information, the product packaging is actually really informative without being an eyesore. A lot of the time, people buy weight loss products because of marketing, and while salespeople and advertisements can be really persuasive, you should always do your research before buying anything that can directly impact your health.
What’s impressive about Lean N Green’s packaging is that it lists all the appetite suppressing, detoxifying, fat burning ingredients in the front so that you are well aware of what you are consuming. This kind of full disclosure isn’t that common with weight loss drinks and supplements, which is something that consumers can appreciate.
As you can see in the picture above, the active ingredients are indicated in the front. If you turn it over, you’ll see the full list of ingredients. They are:
Green Coffee Bean Extract, Garcinia Cambogia, Psyllium Fiber Husk, L-carnitine, Green Tea Extract, Marine Collagen, Coffee Arabica, Nonfat Cream, Stevia, Maltodextrin, Silicon Dioxide, Carrageenan, Sucralose
If you’ve noticed, the last four ingredients have not been included in the front of the package. Those are common food additives, so nothing to worry about. Maltodextrin and Carragenan are used to thicken liquids, while Silicon Dioxide is an anti-caking agent so the product doesn’t clump. Sucralose is a calorie-free sweetener, like Stevia.
FYI, ingredients are always listed in descending order, so in reality, there’s very little of the last four ingredients compared to the active ingredients.
What are the Lean N Green Coffee Benefits?

How to drink Lean N Green Coffee
Preparing Lean N Green Coffee is pretty straightforward, like you would with most instant coffees, but there are a couple of additional instructions to ensure the beverage works without the risk of dehydration.
To make yourself a cup of Lean N Green Coffee, all you need to do is mix one sachet into a cup (150ml) of hot water. You can enjoy it hot or shaken with ice to make it into an iced coffee.
It’s best to drink the coffee 30 minutes before breakfast, followed by 1 to 2 glasses of water 5 minutes after you’ve finished your drink.
To store the coffee, keep the sachets in a dry area no warmer than 30°C.
Remember, Lean N Green Coffee should be part of a healthy diet, not replacing one. The drink is only effective if you’re eating well and regularly exercising.
Now for the taste.
The coffee has less caffeine, which means that Lean N Green doesn’t really have as much of the bitter taste that most coffees do. This is perfect for non-coffee drinkers, as well as coffee drinkers who drink coffee for the energy and not necessarily for the taste.
Review on the side effects of Lean ‘N Green Slimming Coffee
Advertisements claim that there are no side effects with Lean N Green Coffee, since it regulates bowel movement, meaning no constipation or LBM. Also, you won’t be experiencing any palpitations with the drink, as there is less caffeine.
Thus, unlike most detox teas and coffees, Lean N Green does NOT cause constipation, LBM or palpitations.
While all of the above is more than what you can ask for in a weight loss drink, some people still might experience some side effects at the beginning, especially regular coffee drinkers who prefer a strong brew.
If you’re used to drinking really strong coffee from Starbucks or the sugar 3-in-1 instant packs, or drink several cups a day, then it might take a few days to adjust to the lowered caffeine level of Lean N Green.
On your first day, you might already feel some of the effects, especially the reduced appetite and cravings, but your energy levels might go down as your body is adjusting to the new coffee. One person might take a few days to adjust, while another individual might not have any trouble managing their energy at all. Everyone is different. Just be aware that this could happen to you, but you can always adjust by incorporating high energy foods into your diet.
