For all those who know me personally, I complain more about going to the gym than actually going to the gym. Yet, I seek out carbs, sweets, and meat like kids seeking for that golden ticket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. When I was offered to try SkinnyMint Ultimate Teatox I was sold by reading the words “kick that bloat.” Four years ago, I was constantly bloated and had a heck ton of stomach issues thanks to the little f*cker called H. Pylori bacteria, and eating hasn’t really been the same since. Tea has been one of my long time go-to’s for helping my stomach to calm down from any fatty foods or indigestion.
I started the SkinnyMint 28Day Ultimate Teatox program the same time when I had a monster Fatburger and yes- it was stuck inside me for MORE than a day…or two. (We are all human and not I’m never ashamed to share my washroom stories. In fact, if YOU have any washroom stories to share, PLEASE leave a comment so I can relate back to you!!!) The 28 Day Ultimate Teatox consists of two steps: the Morning Boost tea that you drink daily for 28 days with breakfast and the Night Cleanse tea every other night after your last meal.
If you want to avoid coffee and still get that caffeine-awake feeling, the Morning Boost Tea is a green tea that can replace your morning latte. I was a bit suspicious about this, but when I had this on the weekend I actually felt alert on this alone. Taste-wise, I’m a HUGE, HUGE fan. I bring this to work so I can make it in the office and both male and females have said “Woah your tea smells SO good!” Other ingredients in tea include Nettle Leaves, Yerba Mate, Dandelion, and Guarana Fruit.
Another thing, I realized my intake of food has increased/ I’m not as bloated so I feel like I could eat more. One day at work for three hours, I had an almond croissant, Vietnemese salad roll, quarter of a triple layered sandwich, and my lunch – a bowl of spaghetti with meat sauce. Yes- this was carbohydrate overload, and when I felt that “omg I’m too full” mark at 2pm, I just drank the Morning Boost tea (which I have been steeping all day long.) Although it is a morning tea, I do get a few cups of tea out of it and I don’t think it should go to waste.
The Night Cleanse tea is more of an acquired taste. It’s designed to cleanse the body and contains ingredients to detox: Ginger root, Lemongrass, Senna leaves, and Psyllium husk. It has an earthy, herbal taste that a lot of people may not like as the ginger root taste is the strongest. Steep the tea in lukewarm water and the taste isn’t as strong or add some raw honey.
I’ve relied on ginger root tea in the past to get rid of the bloated feeling, and I can attest that it works! I found that it is hard for me to remember to drink the Night Cleanse tea; if I come home late on the weekend and I just want to go to sleep; rather than making a cup of tea.
Getting a *bikini body*- sure it’s a goal but not my personal goal when I am drinking it. I’m a bit less than half way in and I haven’t noticed any physical changes (probably because I’m not in spin class every other day or doing 100 sit-ups a week.) Guys and girls, please note that I’m not a worshiper in teatoxing or detoxing really – I haven’t even done a diet ever. I’ve been integrating this in my current diet, making no changes in what I eat (though that should really change,) and just been writing down notes how I feel and internally, I feel good. Also, I noticed my sleep has been improving! When I’m finished my 28Day Teatox program – I’ll do a quick summary in one of my posts to let you know how I feel and update if I do see any physical changes. I’m not expecting a 6-pack to form in a month but I’d like to fit into the jeggings I bought last year.
Overall those who have a good fitness routine may or may not have better results. For someone like me, who’s a casual exerciser (LOL – I categorize myself as that,) this is a good kickstarter. I prefer the Morning Boost tea. PS- I like how the tea is in individual tea bags so I don’t have to deal with sizing out portions and splitting loose leaf over the course of 28 days.
