Lose weight by drinking tea!

Unless you’ve been living on the moon you’ve probably heard about the new tea weight loss plans that are currently on the market, whereby you drink a set amount of a specific tea each day and it helps detox your system and aids you in shedding pounds.
I have recently been trying out the 14 Day Teatox* from Slendertoxtea, a 100% natural, organic herbal tea which aims to give you increased energy, increased metabolism, less bloating and weight loss.
There are 2 parts to the Slendertoxtea Teatox – a Daytox and a Sleeptox. You have one cup of the Daytox tea in the morning, as soon after getting out of bed as possible, using 1 teabag, then you have one cup of the Sleeptox tea every other night using 1 teabag. The Sleeptox gently flushes out your system while you sleep, it’s basically a gentle laxative which sounds a bit scary but it’s all done in a natural way using herbs and ingredients that naturally stimulate the digestive system. I did get a mild tummyache during the first day of using the tea, but it soon subsided and was just a sign that the tea was doing its job.
The ingredients of the 2 teas are as follows:
Detox – Hawthorn Grain, Red Bean, Sterling Bean, Radish Leaf, Camellia Seed, Camellia Flower, Green Tea, Fennel Seeds
Sleeptox – Valerian Root, Large Hawthorn, Red Bean, Sterling Bean, Green Tea, Radish Leaf, Camellia Seed, Fennel Seeds, Camellia Flower.
You prepare both the daytime and nighttime Slendertox teas as you would a regular cup of tea – pop the teabag in the cup, add hot water and leave for 3-5 mins, then drink without milk. You can drink it cold if you prefer, and you can add sweeteners or honey if you like your tea a bit sweeter, I like mine hot without any sweetener.
The tea has a slightly spicy fragrance and tastes very much like regular black tea but with more of a herby aftertaste. It’s not unpleasant and if you’re used to drinking herbal or green teas then I think you’ll get on with it just fine.
I’ve completed the 14 Day Slendertoxtea Teatox in conjunction with a healthy diet, and I have experienced positive results. Slendertoxtea say you can sometimes experience headaches or fatigue for the first couple of days but I didn’t have either of those side effects, but I did make sure that I drank lots of water every day which is recommended as your body can get rid of excess water whilst detoxing. I definitely felt less bloated whilst on the Teatox programme and I have lost 6 pounds in just 14 days too.
The main thing that I like about Slendertoxtea is that you only have to drink one cup of tea during the daytime and one at night every other night – some of the other detox teas on the market require that you drink up to 3 cups per day at very specific times and it’s not always possible to keep up with this for long periods of time. I also like the bright new Slendertoxtea pink and blue packaging, it’s really eyecatching.
I definitely think that Slendertoxtea works to help cleanse the body and it helps to focus my mind on healthy eating too, so I think my weight loss of 6 pounds is caused by a combined effort of the tea and the other changes I have made over the past week.
Slendertoxtea Teatox plans range from 14 days to 3 months, if you’re unsure about trying it then I recommend you read the FAQ page on the Slendertoxtea website first as they answer all your questions.
The 14 Day Teatox is priced at £19.99 with free UK delivery. If you want something a bit more intensive then you could go for a 28 Day Teatox priced at £32.99. You can usually get a good discount on your first order by signing up to the Slendertoxtea newsletter too.
