Now, I’m not one to usually try fixed diet plans, health tablets or extreme diet detoxes, but when this new Teatox from Bootea started circulating I admit I became a little too intrigued and felt the need to delve a little deeper. Especially when all it involved was to drink tea? Bloody high five to that! So I decided to give it a go…
After returning from America 2 stone heavier and feeling like a balloon it was especially hard for me to say no, and at £20 I thought why not? It’s worth the risk so I did some research and true to itself there were too many good reviews over bad, so I ordered a 14 day teatox and within 4 days the postman delivered the goods.
The idea is, you have a daytime teabag every morning for 14 days, and a nighttime teabag every other night. The key ingredients being; Chinese Oolong tea, Maté leaves, Ginger root, Fennel seeds, Lemongrass, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root, Gotu Kola leaves, Nettle leaves for the daytime teabag (yep I’ve not heard of most either), and for the nighttime; Senna leaves, Peppermint leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice root, Burdock root, Hawthorn leaves, Valerian root, Psyllium seeds. Warning! There was laxative in the night teabag! Just a heads up.
Taste wise it wasn’t too bad, in fact I quite enjoyed it but into day 8 the thought of the nighttime teabag made me feel a little queazy, and the first couple of days I felt drained with not a lot of energy. However soon enough I noticed my appetite was being suppressed and any bloating I had was starting to disappear, I actually started to feel a little slimmer. This was clearly too good to be true but I continued, carried on exercising and felt a lot fitter by the end of the week.
There must be a catch I hear you say, but I’ll admit it did work. However after I finished the course my appetite crept back and I felt myself craving the ingredient that was suppressing it from the Bootea… great. But it did give me a good kick start to change my diet and eat healthier. Which was a bonus and after all I felt and looked so much better in the space of 2 weeks so it certainly motivated me to carry on getting back into shape.
So yes, I would recommend this to anyone wanting to kick start that diet, but to note once it’s finished the rest of the work is up to you. It’s a great quick fix if you have an event coming up and you want to shift that bloated belly and squeeze back into that dress in the back of your wardrobe-so go for it, but for a long term fix it’s probably not the best but certainly worth a shot.
However it didn’t give you exactly what it said on the tin… that being get you a bootay, you’d definatly have to put the work in for that.
I’d also recommend a replacement for
Bootea Green tea… you can’t go wrong! It’s cheap, healthy and it comes in so many flavours, the perfect substitute. My personal fave is the Twining’s pomegranate. Lush!
If that doesn’t help motivate you then I don’t know what will. At the end of the day you have to start somewhere, and guys its only 5 months until summer! 5 MONTHS! Get going…
