This Is Why You Should Stop Drinking Detox Teas

You can use detox teas to help you lose weight faster, but that doesn’t mean that you should. Here’s why (and what to do instead)…

If you spend any time on Instagram, you can’t help but run into pretty girls promoting the miracles of “detox” teas.

You know…

  • Effortless weight loss
  • Appetite suppression
  • Improved digestion
  • More energy
  • Reduced bloating
  • Improved complexion
  • And more…

In fact, many of these fitnessistas swear that they’ve never looked or felt better since starting their detox tea regimens.

They’re not alone, either.

Celebrity endorsements abound, and they’re flanked by countless before-and-after shots of everyday folk losing 20, 30, even 40+ pounds in just a matter of months.

Thus, it’s no surprise that detox teas are more popular than ever.

The promise of losing fat, looking sexier, and feeling better by just gulping down some mildly appetizing liquids is just too alluring for many to resist.

It also smacks of “too good to be true,” and as you’re going to learn in this episode, there’s more to the detox tea story. A lot more.

The reality is detox tea “cleanses” can help you lose weight, but not because of the tea, and not not safely and healthily. In fact, you’d be better off just starving yourself and drinking plenty of water.

Ironically, the name “detox tea” is itself misleading because not a single one of these beverages “detox” your body.

In this episode, you’ll learn what detox tea really is, why “teatoxing” is an unhealthy way to lose weight and what you should do instead.
