Disappointment of the Year

This year I have reviewed many incredible products! Some incredible products that didn’t win, but still need to be mentioned: The Shred Belt, Youfresh Naturals, The Powerball, The footballer, the beastie ball, SFH So3d3, Deer Antler Velvet and many many others! Check out all the reviews here on this site!  

And now on to the awards! 

 Bonus Supplement of the Year: What is the bonus of the year? Well; it’s the supplement that makes a world of difference that doesn’t quite fit in any of the categories! And the award goes to: Wheatgrass 



There’s too many great things to say about wheatgrass! You have to check out my post here on this site! 

Best Tasting Supplement of the Year: many can enter but only one can win! I truly enjoyed all the nut butters and coconut butter this year but one was slightly above all! And the award goes to: PB Crave



This stuff tastes amazing! Every flavor is rich and delectable! Try them all! Hey PB Crave how about a cinnamon raisin?  

Stack of the year: This years Stack of the Year challenge was a Fat Burner coupled with a Test Booster to try and stop muscle loss when going on an extreme low carb diet. The results were amazing! And the award goes to: Shredz Fat Burner and Testosterone formally: Shredz and Diezel 




BCAA of the Year: And the award goes to: BPI Sports Best BCAAs 



Protein of the Year: And the award goes to: Bio-gro although its not quite protein, its Colestrum it’s made from milk and therefore qualifies! Bio-gro has added value to my protein shakes! Try it! 



Best Grass Fed All Natural Whey Protein of the Year: and the award goes to: Body Logix Natural Isolate All Natural Whey



Best Alternative Protein of the Year: and the award goes to: Rice Protein by Growing Naturals I believe that adding multiple sources of protein equals greater uptake in the body. Rice Protein probably absorbs slower than Whey Isolate making my shake a time released protein shake! That’s awesome! 



Best Vegan Recipe of the Year: and the award goes to: Avocado Chocolate Pudding although this is a vegan recipe I love to add 2 scoops of protein to make it a healthy and enjoyable high protein snack! 

Fat Burner of the Year: And the award goes to: Shredz 



Teatox Challenge Teatox of the Year: and the award goes to: Mate Fit

Non-stimulant Preworkout of the Year And the award goes to: Hemanovol – HVOL by AllMax Nutrition

Disappointment of the Year: There is only one hands down winner here! 

This one even beat last years loser: the fitbody wrap – the fitbody wrap didn’t hurt me! 

The loser is: SARMS!

Ok lets start off with what’s in the package. It comes with 2 bags of loose leaf metabolic boost and 1 bag of loose leaf detox tea. It also comes with big goofy extra large obscenely sized tea bags that you can fill with the loose leaf tea. It also comes with a large quick direction card with ingredients

What I love straight off, is the opportunity to drink it either way (loose leaf or in a tea bag)

I am a tea connoisseur! I love tea! Call me a tea snob if you must lol. But I only like organic tea and I like loose leaf that I can see the blend and sometimes mix the teas to make a new creation from companies like Teavana and Mighty Tea (Mighty Tea is reviewed here on this site)

The taste isn’t bad! I’m used to drinking Oolong tea that tastes like sweat socks!
Enter Wu-Long slimming tea

Not a great taste, but you do lose a little weight.

Yerba Mate on the other hand is sweet and has a pleasant taste. It cancels out the sweat sock taste of Oolong.

Do I enjoy drinking Mate Fit? No! Do I hate dread drinking it? No! It has a neutral taste for me. Meaning I can tolerate drinking it, but in not going out of my way to happily drink it, but we are not drinking it to enjoy it, we are drinking it for its metabolic boost!

Drinking more tea is not going to hurt! So; since it is loose leaf, you can add a teaspoon if your favorite loose leaf tea to the bag since it is obscenely large!

20140511-105747.jpg
Something you can’t do with other repackaged tea (such as Tiny Tea). Or you can always have a second cup of tea (your favorite) after you drink the Mate Fit.

I typically drink 5 cups of tea daily when on a cutting diet.

I can’t wait to try the Detox tea tonight!!

Stay tuned for more! The most important part… Does it work?

Trying my second cup with a tsp of Mighty Leaf Coco Chai

20140511-132828.jpg

20140511-132838.jpg
Much better! Tastes amazing and I get the benefit of both mixtures!

The perfect way to enjoy your Teatox without adding calories to the mix such as Honey and Lemon Juice (suggested sweetener in the directions)

It says use 1tbsp that’s an awfully large amount of tea to use per cup! My mighty leaf says use 1tsp per serving as does Teavana! What I am going to attempt is trying to make a second cup from the tea bag and I will still use 2tbsps daily as directed, but I will see if I can get 4 cups instead of 2, by drinking each tbsp twice. The 1st cup being a super powerful dose and the second being an additional stabilizing dose. That way I can have it every 2 hours till ride till lunch time.

**Update** May 12th 2014
Morning after the Detox tea first dose: wasn’t bad, I didn’t experience any harsh affects. No diarrhea, no excessive peeing. It wasn’t bad at all. My stomach does look flatter since the weekend. I also didn’t use my wheel yet (Ab Carver Pro).

**Update** May 13th 2014
Just to be clear, I add a tsp of high grade loose leaf tea to the metabolism boost (day tea) I don’t add anything to the detox (night tea)

**Update** May 15th 2014
My waist was measured today at 37″ and I’m 6′ 255lbs not bad! I want to get to 34″ and 235lbs can I do it with the the help of Mate Fit in the beginning of my cut? Will Shredz help me reach my goal? My stomach does seen flatter since using the Mate Fit! I’m liking it! Taking my 4th cup at 8pm and my nighttime cleanse at 10 or 12 depending what time I get sleepy! Will I reach my goal?

Stay tuned!

**Update** May 21st 2014
This week I am mixing it up!

It’s my belief that the directions are too excessive! Meaning you are severely wasting tea!

You can easily make this more than a 28day detox. However; you won’t have enough handy bags!

All loose leaf tea calls for 1tsp! Mate fit says 1 tbsp that’s 3 times the amount!

Today I am trying 1tsp and for my 2nd cup I will be having the Teatox challenge part 2 coming soon! One prepackaged tea bag of Tiny Tea. Then I will have my 2nd tsp of Mate fit followed by a final cup of Tiny Tea.

Lets see how this works!

2 Teatoxes blended as one, hand in hand in detox bliss 😝

Results:
One tsp had the same potency as 1tbsp! It tastes exactly the same as I suspected!

The verdict is in: do not waste your Mate Fit! Only use 1tsp and make it last 3 times as long! If you buy a 28day teatox from then use it the same way and you will have enough for 3 full 28day Teatoxes! Do not do them back to back! Follow the downtime instructions!

I tried Wu-Yi tea basically overpriced oolong tea. That’s the same thing with Wu-Long tea. They both taste like steeped sweat socks! Mate Fit contains Oolong but it also has Yerba Mate which is sweeter and other ingredients. It tastes pretty good, but remember above, I add high grade loose leaf from Mighty Tea or Teavana to spice it up!
