Skinny Teatox: My experience with this weight loss aid

14-Day Skinny Teatox

I'll admit, I've gained some weight over the past few year and I've been wanting to get rid of the extra weight. 

I don't believe in "diets" because those are often short-term solutions that are un-healthy and the results don't last. Did I mention that I'm also a very picky eater? It's actually quite bad. Anyways...What I do believe in, is a lifestyle change and incorporating or altering small things that I may already do to help get me the results I'm looking for.

You can't do it all at once (ok, maybe some can). It's often too hard on your body and you're more than likely to go back to your old habits. Have a small craving? Treat yourself at the end of the week or a little bit here & there. Don't deprive yourself completely; you'll be more likely to binge when you do break.

So when I heard about Skinny Teatox and had the opportunity to try their 14-Day Skinny Teatox, I decided that this was something that fit nicely with my beliefs and this could be a good boost. I drink tea on a regular basis, so changing my tea was a piece of cake.

Skinny Teatox is a 100% natural tea based detox program that helps with weight loss and good health. The 14-Day Teatox includes 30g of Morning Tea and 7 sachets of Evening Tea.

Morning Tea is supposed to help with weight loss by, increasing metabolism, increasing energy levels, suppressing appetite and burning calories. This is to be taken daily in the morning or early afternoon.

The Evening Tea, which is taken once every other evening, contains senna which is one of the ingredients that help detoxify and cleanse your colon. (In other words, this acts a bit like a laxative)

I found the Morning Tea reminded tasted to be green tea based. It was delicious. I usually drank the tea between 10:30am and 11:30am during the week. On weekends, my schedule's a little off and I'm not in the habit of drinking tea. By the time I'd remember, I was already quite warm and doing house and yardwork, so I'd make myself a cup and stick it in the freezer for about 30 mins to make myself a cool refreshing ice tea!

The first day, I realized that I didn't feel so drowsy in the afternoon after my lunch. On the second day, after work I felt like I had a little more energy than I usually did. So I started incorporating regular walks after work, which my dog loved (helps that the weather's getting better too!)

After the first week, I realized that I wasn't as hungry when it came to dinner time. I often didn't get hungry until about 7pm and I only ate about half of what I'd normally eat. My stomach wasn't growling during the day. I'd have my breakfast which was usually a bagel in the morning, then I'd have an apple or carrots & celery sticks mid-morning. Around 2:30, I'd usually have the apple or carrots & celery sticks that I didn't have earlier then I was good until dinner. Of course, there were some days where I only had 1 between-meal snack.

The Evening Tea and I didn't get along so great. Steeping time is between 2-4 minutes for both teas. The first evening I tried the tea, I steeped for the minimum of 2 minutes. The tea had no effect on me. Two days later, 4 minutes. The following morning I had painful cramps and had to unfortunately spend about 1 hour in the washroom. Two days after that, I tried for 3 minutes, and no affect. This was a little annoying for me as it was one thing or the other - no in betweens. I allowed myself one more morning of cramps (made sure it was a weekend) to see if it would make a difference since I had been on the Teatox for nearly a week at that time. No difference. Now, I will say, we're all different. Everyone's body will react differently to this Evening Tea and I know plenty of people who have had a tea that contains senna and they did not have the cramping.

So I have taken the 14-Day Skinny Teatox, started incorporating regular evening walks and switched out my granola bars for carrots & celery sticks (I'll be honest, I do love carrots & celery sticks!). I don't know exactly how much weight I've lost since I don't own a scale, but my pants and shirts now fit a bit more comfortably.

The 14-Day Skinny Teatox is currently selling for $32 (normally $42) and can be purchased at skinny-teatox.com. This Canadian company (yes, CANADIAN) ships worldwide (except for Australia) and usually takes about 4-8 business days if shipping within Canada via regular mail.

I'm not going bikini shopping anytime soon, but I'm confident that I'll get there. I don't plan on doing the whole teatox again, however I do plan on getting the 14-day supply of the Skinny Teatox Morning Tea a few more times in the future. I might also try their Fat-Free Chocolate Energy Tea.... Mmmm.

  1. I've been curious about this teatox trend. I have a trial coming too, but form a different brand.
    It's too bad about the evening tea and that it gave you such a huge inconvenience when it worked. But it's nice to hear that the morning tea was good and useful.

  2. Oh, and that strawberry infuser is just too cute! Did they send that too??

    1. they did! It's adorable! The only "problem" I had, is that the holes were a little big, so I'd always have a bit of leaf crumbs at the bottom, but the cuteness compensated for that!

      and the morning tea was amazing! Hopefully yours works for you :)
