An Honest Teatox Review
Unless you're been living in a cave for the past year, you'll have witnessed the influx of the slimming tea.
If Instagram is anything to go by, such teas are usually sipped by a girl in a matching Calvin Klein lounge set flaunting her taut abs and her toussled, bouncy hair.
When it comes to fitness, I'm not an idiot. I know that the best way to get the tiny waist/big bum combo is to slog at the gym and put down the digestive biscuits, but who can resist the promise of a daily cup of tea that actually burns fat.
When Slimming Solutions sent me their 14 day Teatox to review, I gave it a sniff and expected the worst. If your usual brew of choice is milky with 2 sugars, this could take some getting used to but if you're a Green Tea aficionado it'll be a breeze.
You drink your morning cup straight after waking up and your every other day evening cup before you go to bed. After a browse through the ingredients, I clocked the Oolong and host of diuretics that are basically intended to make you wee more. So more water burning than fat, which by day 4 makes you feel like you've got a bladder the size of a pea.
I also read online that often these teas can interfere with your pill, so be aware, as it isn't something that's mentioned on the packaging.
The evening tea blend is a calming concoction that aids sleep. However, some of the ingredients can have a laxative effect and you're advised that you may notice it in the first few days. I don't think that requires any more explanation!
The effect of the Teatox is to cleanse the digestive system, and supposedly rid your body of toxins.
After I'd finished the Teatox, my skin was clear and I hadn't felt at all bloated for the full 14 days, which was brilliant.
However, my weight remained the same and I didn't really notice an increase in my energy, confirming that whilst we dream of a quick fix solution, the only real way to weight-loss is good old fashioned hard work.
