Last Saturday, February 14, I was invited to take part into a mini crossfit games in Crossfit Insurrecto and to the launch of their new product, the Battle Brew Coffee. I immediatley said yes to the invite because I was excited to do crossfit again and I would also like to try the battle brew coffee, because I’ve heard it’s good for weight loss. I’m not a coffee person but for the sake of weight loss, i can try everything. Lol
According to their website (Warning: Nosebleed Alert) Battle Brew is a high fat, moderate protein, and low to moderate carbohydrate nutritional paradigm designed to place the user in a state of Nutritional Ketosis through the use of BB Coffee and Battle Brew’s Intermittent Fat Fasting Protocol (“BIF”). When breaking the BIF, our nutrition is supplemented with healthy, natural, and unprocessed food to be consumed over a period of 10-4 hours every day (“Battle Brew Nutritional Paradigm” or the “BNP”). In the end, we believe that through the BIF and the BNP we can maximize use of our own fat stores as our primary source of fuel, spare lean muscle tissue, fine-tune cognitive function, and improve your overall well-being.
The invited bloggers were divided into 4 teams of 4 for the crossfit games. I was part of team 3 with George, Ray & Anne. The mechanics of the game was simple, the first team to finish the WOD (workout of the day) wins! The WOD was: 3 sets of 30 burpees, 30 dumbell overhead press, 30 box steps and 500 meter suitcase carry.
The WOD was a killer specially for me who had stopped working out for a while. I did most of the burpees and half of the box steps and the suitcase carry. It was very tiring but it all paid off because our team won. Woohoo! 🙂
As winners of the crossfit games, we were given the Battle Brew Starter Kit. The kit includes 2 packs of Obsidian gold coffee and 1 bottle of MCT Oil.
After the work out, the Battle Brew Crew talked about their products and told us the benefits of the Battle Brew coffee and MCT Oil. Here are some of them:
1. It converts straight into energy unlike whole virgin coconut oil.
2. It helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
3. It improves your body’s absorption and use of vitamin E, calcium, and magnesium.
4. It bossts your immune system.
5. It serves as stable building block of cell membranes.
6. It is easy to store, no refrigeration required.
7. It is flavorless and easy to add into any diet.
I am excited to try the MCT oil because it is very easy to use. As stated in number 7, you can add the MCT oil to any of your diet meals especially when you are not a coffee person like me. Speaking of coffee, you can find how to prepare the Obsidian coffee here.
Also, weight loss is easy if you combine diet with proper exercise. So if you want to have free cross fit trials, check out the following cross fit branches near you:
