I am still nowhere near my weight goal or my body image goal despite what people think and receiving the compliments is fantastic but it doesn’t stop how I see myself in the mirror and in photos. I don’t want to accept my body the way it is and I do honestly feel like that but I struggle with motivation and I actually love food too much.
There’s a new craze going at the moment and I’ve seen a huge influx of celebrities promoting tea detoxes. I was approached to try the Slimming Solutions Teatox a while ago but there was some confusion and delay in actually getting it to me. When it did arrive I was really excited.
The Slimming Solutions Teatox is a two-part detox tea blend. There’s a morning and an evening. It works by combining a unique blend natural and herbal tea formulas. The teas are designed to work in harmony with your body to help get rid of unwanted toxins, resulting in a full body detoxing effect. Teatox is designed to gently cleanse the digestive system and detoxify your body, as well as boosting metabolism and reducing cravings.
I am not a tea drinker, in fact I only drink hot chocolate when it comes to hot drinks, so I was slightly nervous about how I’d get on with having not one but two hot drinks each day but I was determined to actually do it so I could get the full effect of the teas.
The morning tea is made from Chinese Oolong tea (38%), Siberian Ginseng (20%), Fennel (10%), Lemongrass (10%), Nettle leaves (8%), Ginger root (5%), Dandelion leaf (5%), Ginseng root (2%), Salvia miltiorrhiza (2%). Naturally sugar free with no artificial additives. You have to drink the tea as soon after waking up as possible and before you’ve eaten anything. You make it just like normal tea, letting the teabag infuse for 2-3 minutes in hot water.
The evening blend should be drank at least 30 minutes after your last meal and just before you go to bed. The ingredients are Senna leaves (20%), Hawthorn leaves (20%), Lotus leaves (14%), Fenugreek seeds (12%), Burdock root (14%), Peppermint (8%), Psyllium seeds (8%), Valerian root (2%), Liquorice root (2%). Naturally sugar free with no artificial additives. It may cause laxative side effects for the first few days as this is your bodies way of getting rid of any bad toxins.
Both the morning and evening blend can be naturally flavoured with honey or lemon to give it a more sweeter taste.
I’m not going to lie, I really didn’t like the taste of either the morning or evening teas. I’m not sure if that’s because my pallet just isn’t used to drinking tea or hot drinks in general so I wouldn’t write it off completely before you try it. The Slimming Solutions Teatox was a 14 day detox and I just couldn’t manage the whole time because I really couldn’t stomach the taste.
It’s hard to feel motivated to eat or drink something and be healthier when you just don’t like something and life is far too short for forcing yourself to do it. I wanted my fitness and health regime to be fun and exciting. However, I do love the concept, I did feel less bloated and more energised whilst I was on the detox.
The 14 day Slimming Solutions Teatox costs £19.99 and there is also a 28 day option for £34.99. I actually think that’s a really good price and I did begin to feel the benefits.
