I've been on the Stay Lean Tea program! Read the review here.

----------------------------------------------------- 

Ok, first of all, I don't want to lose weight, I want to detox. I heard so much about these detoxing teas lately and detox-tea companies pop up everywhere at the moment.

I think most of the people buy this tea because they want to lose weight. You see before and after pictures on instagram of people who had lost so much weight...the photographs seem just unreal.  





I chose Bootea, a UK based teatox company. I ordered the 14-day teatox which includes 14 daytime teabags to be used every day and 7 bedtime teabags to be used every other night before you go to bed. Bootea can be purchased as 14-day (£19,99) or 28-day Teatox (on sale right now, £34,99).





Ingredients - Daytime Tea
Chinese Oolong tea, Maté leaves, Ginger root, Fennel seeds, Lemongrass, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root, Gotu Kola leaves, Nettle leaves.

Ingredients - Bedtime Cleanse
Senna leaves, Peppermint leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice root, Burdock root, Hawthorn leaves, Valerian root, Psyllium seeds.




I received the Bootea Teatox a week later I ordered it. The taste was good. The daytime tea tasted like green tea, the bedtime cleanse was very minty. Bootea recommends drinking lots of green tea and water all day during the cleanse. The company also provides an eating plan: The only thing you are not allowed to eat is meat. So this means you can eat candy, processed food, white bread, fast food, everything? I checked out other teatox websites and found another eating plan by SkinnyMe Tea. During the teatox you should avoid dairy, alcohol, processed foods, refined flour products, fatty animal meats. You should eat lots of proteins, fruits and veggies. I decided to follow the SMT eating plan.

The first 3 days I felt bloated. No good feeling. Urgh. As the tea contains senna leaves it has a laxative effect. You should drink it right before you go to bed because it says that the laxative effect will happen in approximately 8 hours. During the teatox I've been drinking up to 3 liters of tea a day. It is very important to stay hydrated! Flush the toxins out of your body! 

For breakfast I had fruits, soy yogurt and my homemade granola, as usual. 
Lunch and dinner mostly was veggie sticks with hummus, mixed greens, salads, grilled vegetables, cottage cheese, nuts, beans, omelettes. I didn't eat any meat. But I had a glass of wine every now and then. 

During the teatox I felt healthier, at the gym I found out that I had more energy. My skin was getting better - glowing skin without any spots. 

Overall, I felt really good after the teatox. Weird thing was that I didn't lose any weight although I worked out 3 times a week, drank lots of tea (I didn't even lose water weight?!), ate small portions of only healthy foods. Anyway, I would recommend doing the teatox,whether it works or not in terms of weight loss, you'll still experience health benefits from detoxing your body. If you don't want to spend £19,99 on Bootea products, then just avoid alcohol, eat healthy (lots of fiber and superfoods) and drink lots of water and herbal tea. This might have the same detox effect - cleanse your system by flushing built-up toxins out of your body.
