I’ve seen these detox tea reviews pop up everyone on social media. So many people are talking about how great these teas are for detoxing, cleansing, energizing, and weight loss, so I decided to try it out for myself. The kind people at Skinny Teatox were so kind to send me a set to try out and review for you guys, so here is my honest and detailed review. Now I just want to say that my purpose of trying this tea out isn’t to lose weight, it was to cleanse and increase my energy levels. I, personally, don’t believe in any type of pill or tea to lose weight, but as you’ll see below, Skinny Teatox does promote effects that may aid in weight loss for some people.
What is Skinny Teatox? Skinny Teatox is a 100% natural detox tea program that promotes good health and to some people, weight loss. It is targeted to have the effect to:
- Lose weight
- burn calories
- boost metabolism
- suppress appetite
- increase energy levels
Procedure The week I started taking the tea was actually one of my busiest weeks since I was volunteering at my church camp. I’d wake up at around 7:20 am, boil the water, and seep a teaspoon of the tea leaves for about 2-3 minutes before transferring it into my glass bottle to go. Consider this as your morning wake-up, as it truly does wake you up and give you that boost of energy.
Comments and results So this teatox experience for me may not have gone as planned. First of all, after 7 days, I realized that I still had half of the packet left. Oops. This may have been because I didn’t have an exact measuring spoon, so I had just eyeballed a teaspoon. And paranoid of running out of tea before 7 days were up, I may have not put enough. After 7 days, I put more in and the tea definitely became more strong. Even though I wasn’t in this for weight loss, I weighed myself just out of curiosity. Nothing changed though, which wasn’t a surprise because this was the week that I was volunteering at a camp and the food there consisted of hotdogs, fried rice, and chips. I also got a cold, and so I didn’t exercise. I don’t know if this was caused by the tea or not, but during the 7 days I was drinking the tea, I developed a canker sore in the tissue connecting my lower lip to my lower gums. Guys. It was PAINFUL. I felt like my whole under lip was being split open, and I couldn’t eat anything. So considering that. . .maybe I should have lost weight, haha. It may have been due to me not putting enough of the tea leaves in, but my appetite didn’t get suppressed, and I was starving by lunch time. Again, this was not the ideal week to try this tea out because my hunger may have been due to running around with kids all week and taking photos. But after the 7 days were up and I started putting in more tea leaves, I did stop getting hunger craves during the mornings.
So overall, I feel like there’s never one set of results and effects for a teatox or any type of product that guarantees a certain result.. There are so many factors that can determine otherwise. It really depends on when you take it, what activities you’re doing, what kind of body type, etc. etc. Next time I try another teatox, I’ll definitely take it at a better time. For those of you guys who are struggling with weight loss, I would recommend this to you but only saying that the tea alone won’t do anything. Make sure you change your diet and be active, and the tea will just be there to wrap everything up.
