I discovered many new and cool natural products on Instagram during the Natural Products Expo West this past March. One of them was Your Tea. Claims of a cleaner digestive system with the side effects of weight loss, reduced bloating, clear skin and increased energy definitely had my attention.
So I ordered a 14 day Tiny Tea TEXtox. An organic herbal tea blend to nourish and cleanse my digestive system.
I drank the hot tea twice a day 30 minutes before or after meals. The black tea was delicious! (However, my husband says that it tastes like incense water, LOL.) I usually maxed out my Tiny Tea by adding a peppermint and ginger tea bag after I drank a cup. I didn't change my eating or workout habits.
I also added the leftover tea to a clay mask to get the full benefits. It was kind of hard to get the tea to stick to my face without falling off all over the place! But the warm tea felt wounderful on my face as I rubbed it on in a circular motion it to exfoliate. It left my skin so baby smooth!
Although I took the tea twice a day, as instructed, but I still had 14 bags left! So I continued my two bag tea habit for another seven days, for a total of a 21 day TEAtox.
I lost 1 pound and 2.5 inches from my waist.
I'm back down to my Zumba instructor weight. It's really, really, really, hard for me to lose weight. Since we moved to Miami I gained about 10 pounds. I've been working hard and keeping track since September 2013 and I've lost and maintained about 1lb per month on a plant-based/vegetarian diet and burning an average of 500 calories 5-6 days per week. I've lost and maintained a total eight pounds since September 2013.
As you can see my weight goes up and down at least one pound every other day.
I actually caught a little cold the day after I started the TEAtox. I NEVER GET SICK! I haven't been sick since we moved to Miami a year and nine months ago. And I can't remember when the last time I was since in Kansas City. My energy was very low and I was extremely hungry also. I'm not sure what was going on or what to attribute that madness to. But by the 7th day my cold was gone, my appetite was back to normal, and I was no longer taking afternoon naps or sleeping in.
I'm most pleased with my lack of bloating and water retention. I feel like my waist is back and I feel as light as a feather! I hate my inner thighs and I usually have a tank top covering my hips and crotch area. But towards the end of the TEXtox I no longer felt embarrassed about the extra weight that I was carrying.It was gone. I even had a pep in my step like I was walking on a cloud!
I'm about 15 pounds away from my goal weight. But that has been teh story ofmy life! I can say that I'll be ordering the 14 day Tiny Tea TEXtox again for matainence. I give it two thumbs up!
