I answered a social media post to be part of the Tea Cleanse test panel in March, and I was pretty skeptical. The author didn’t give me any payment (or even provide the tea), but by day 3 I was hooked! I lost 5 pounds in 3 days (and 10 pounds overall). But that wasn’t even the biggest change:--My belly got noticeably flatter in just the first few days (even my husband noticed by day 3)--I had way more energy (no more 3 pm slump!)--I never felt hungry, even though I was skipping breakfast--I started sleeping betterTo do this cleanse, you basically drink 5 cups of tea a day, make one tea-based smoothie, and have a normal dinner. What was most fun for me was exploring the different kinds of teas, all of which have specific weight-loss properties, according to studies the author cites. Plus, having herbal tea at night really cut my cravings for dessert.I’m not “cleansing” any more but this book has changed the way I feel and look. I’m still down in weight (14 pounds now after 21 days), I’ve lost 3 inches off my tummy, and most important of all, I feel great! I’m more energetic and I feel much less stressed than I have in years. Even though this book is marketed as a 7-day plan, it’s really a lifestyle change.
Nine days ago I started drinking black, green, white, blueberry (I couldn't find barberry or bilberry), and rooibos tea. I already eat mostly clean, whole foods. I just can't give up bread and pasta. I make my own flatbreads and I use rice or quinoa pasta. I didn't follow this cleanse as the book says, but I did notice I lost a pound per day until I had pasta for dinner, three nights in a row. I lost no weight at all. So I switched it up and now I only eat carbs and fruits early in the day and just drink tea all day long and have meat or eggs and veggies for dinner and I'm still losing weight incredibility fast. I've been eating breakfast, a smoothie from the book for lunch, and a small dinner no later than 7:00 pm. I'm 45 years old, perimenopausal, and gained about 25 pounds over the last 3 years and nothing I've tried has helped me lose any weight at all, in fact I just kept gaining. No more! I can't believe I've already lost 9 pounds in 10 days!!! My clothes fit better and I feel so comfortable. My gut feels better, my digestion has improved, my mood has improved, and I'm ecstatic over the change in how I look. There is no doubt in my mind that it is from the tea. I was an avid coffee drinker, I thought I would miss my coffee and mourn it like a lost friend, but I don't even miss it at all. I know for the rest of my life I will be an avid tea drinker. If you read your reviews Miss Choi, I would like to thank you for all the research you've done, citing the studies, and for sharing this information. It truly is life changing.
I was not a big tea drinker, but gave the plan a try because I wanted to lose some weight and kick my addiction to diet soda, which I had read makes you crave sweets even more and is full of nasty chemicals. In the past I found that drinking coffee all the time affected my sleep patterns, so I thought maybe tea would be better. It really was. I have never before been able to give up diet soda without massive headaches, but on this plan it was no big deal at all. I actually felt better and clearer mentally, rather than worse.I lost 8 pounds on the plan in 7 days, as part of the original test panel. I was never hungry or really craving specific junk foods, and I never got a headache. Most of the time I was occupied with preparing and drinking tea and the smoothies, so I didn't feel like I was waiting to eat something. The only problem I did experience was that I became a little bit dehydrated by about the third day. It takes me about half an hour to brew and drink a 10 oz cup of tea vs. about 5 minutes to open and guzzle a 20 oz diet coke, so my fluid consumption went down until I realized this and made an effort to drink more water.I don't have a blender at work, but I found that making the smoothies at home in the morning and carrying them in a big travel mug was pretty easy. I also don't really cook, so I was intimidated by the recipes, but I ended up just eating foods that followed the principles of the plan, like a broiled chicken breast and a salad or vegetable, rather than making the exact specific recipes. I was able to stick close enough to the plan to lose the weight without learning the specific recipes or even figuring out where to find the ingredients in the grocery store.This is a plan that anyone can follow, and assuming you have some weight to lose, you will lose it.
Yes, you will most likely lose weight with this BUT you will be hungry. Basically, it asks you to eat only two meals a day and one of those "meals" is a tea smoothie and there's no breakfast in sight. So if you're good with waiting till 7pm to eat an actual meal for the first time all day, then by all means go for it, but I'm starving and it's only 3pm. Now with that said, I gave it three stars because it does have a lot of good information pertaining to teas and adding 5 cups of tea a day can't really hurt right? It will help me drink more water and cut back on craving soda or juice. As well, there's an added bonus of information about healing herbs and what works well with the woman's body when it's her lovely time of the month. Over all not a bad book, I just wouldn't recommend following the suggested meal plan in it.
