Skinny Teatox

I have never done any detox diet or supplements or juice cleansing ever. I love my green juices and fruit smoothies once in a while but I have never gone on any strict detox diet since I have heard different stories how it weakens you; how it makes you go to the bathroom a lot; how you just eat more after a detox!
I believe in balance, and once I found out what works for me and what makes me happy, I was ready to try a detox program. 
Skinny Teatox
"is a 100% natural detox tea program that promotes good health and weight loss"

About the products
All the kits (7 day, 14 day and 28 days including 7 day-, 14 day- and 28 day-mint) all come with Skinny Teatox two-step program

Morning Tea
This is meant to be enjoyed in the morning. It's a stimulant and gives you a steady and constant supply of energy throughout the day. It also increases your metabolism and aids with appetite suppression. 

This lose-leaf tea is meant to be used with a tea diffuser, such as the cute strawberry tea diffuser seen in the picture above. Following the pamphlet that it came with my 14-day Teatox Kit, I measure 1-teaspoon of the tea and steep this in hot water for 2-3 minutes before drinking it in the morning.

Evening Tea
This tea cleanses and detoxifies your body. It's a colon cleanse that flushes out your digestive tract of toxins and unwanted excess which could be making it more difficult for you to lose weight. 

These tea come in teabags and are meant to be taken every other day (starting day 1) in the evening for the duration of the teatox OR as otherwise professionally prescribed.

I infuse one tea bag in hot water for 2-3 minutes and leave the bag in my cup as I sip it before bed. According to the instructions the laxative effect of the tea may not occur until the next morning to naturally cleanse and detoxify your system. 

The Evening Tea is blended with premium Alexandrian Senna leaf.
The Senna plant is used in both herbalism and modern medicine due to the plant's high levels of sennocides, which have a mild laxative effect to naturally cleanse and detoxify you digestive system.

My Thoughts

The Morning Tea has a very light taste to it which makes it easy to drink in the morning. My small cup of tea do gives me energy for the day but I do find myself snacking more in the daytime. As suggested in the program, I tried to eat more fruits, vegetables, beans and lentils, carbohydrates (oats, whole grains...), fish, protein, natural yogurt and lots of water. I was able to skip coffee for the day without getting headaches from lack of caffeine. 

The Evening Tea has a not-so-pleasant taste, especially if you prefer fruity and floral flavor teas. I don't mind sipping on this without adding any natural sweeteners but I do drink tons of water after.

I have been drinking the Evening Tea every other night but I don't feel the laxative effects of it until day 2. Maybe because I did not have enough Calorie Intake the day before or I did not eat enough of something that day? I am not sure why. To make this not a very graphic explanation, I do just go once and it's not as bad as what the movies or comedy skits have shown it.  

I never believe in dieting but what has worked with me is having a food journal. I use the MyFitnessPal App to log in everything, and I also weigh myself  once a month, which I also log in in the app. I definitely did not expect to lose a lot of weight as I never stopped eating chocolates and chips during the teatox program and even after the program. To make myself feel better, I do eat/drink more of my smoothies of vegetables and fruits and exercise regularly. Balance! 

You may be thinking how is this related with my beauty and fashion blog? 
Feeling great about my health gives me confidence. How I feel in the inside do affect on how I see myself  and how I project myself to others. Having a healthy lifestyle is such a huge confidence booster! And I assure you once you find that balance with your healthy lifestyle and your makeup and skincare routine, you will not want to ever slack off and get off that "healthy high"!
