Flat Tummy Tea??
So for those of you that follow me on Instagram, you know that I gave in and purchased this Flat Tummy Tea that so many on Insta are raving about. Well, for the past 3 weeks, I have been giving this tea a good strong go and I want to share my thoughts with all of you.
Okay, so on the website, this is what they claim.
Flat Tummy Tea is a 2 step tea detox to help cleanse your system, speed metabolism, reduce bloating and boost energy.
2 week pack for $32.00 USD
4 week pack for $46.00 USD
It comes with 2 steps.
Step 1 Activate- First up, to get that flat tummy, you have to get your digestive system ready for the day ahead. Our Activate tea’s 10 natural ingredients will help pump up your metabolism, give you an antioxidant energy kick and get your digestion ready to start the day on an all natural high.
Stepp 2 Cleanse- No one wants to be that girl ordering a side salad for dinner, we get it. Our Cleanse tea works to help detoxify your intestinal tract free of built up toxins and reduce water weight – basically two of the main reasons why some days you look and feel 5 months pregnant. It’s 7 natural ingredients work together to help get (and keep) that flat tummy.
The Activate tea, you drink every single morning with your breakfast.
The Cleanse Tea, for the FIRST WEEK, you drink it every other night before bed. Following week(s), you drink every third night before bed.
Alright, let’s jump into the review.
Of course I was skeptical when I ordered this tea. I mean a tea that could help flatten your tummy? Yeah right! Of course the tea isn’t magic and you do have to watch what you eat and exercise to see the best results.
Let’s start with the cons.
I HATE that this is a loose leaf tea. I really wish it came in tea bags but nope, it’s loose leaf. I had to order a tea strainer in order to use this tea since I couldn’t find one locally. And since I had to order one online, I had to wait for it to be delivered so I didn’t get to start for a week and a half after receiving my Flat Tummy Tea. A little irritating, but that’s okay.
Let’s talk about the taste of the Activate tea. It’s actually really good. It’s minty which I love since I do drink peppermint tea on a regular basis. I was so worried that the taste of this tea would be dreadful but nope. I actually look forward to drinking it every morning. It really sets the tone for my day. It wakes me up, makes me feel awake and energized without feeling jittery, and just overall makes me feel great! It truly does help with bloating and I also don’t get cravings like I did prior to drinking this tea. That really surprised me. My appetite isn’t as big which I personally like.
Now for the Cleanse. I know a lot of people get scared when they just hear the word ‘cleanse’. They automatically assume it’s going to have them running for the bathroom numerous times a day. This is soooo not the case with this cleansing tea. All it does is help my digestive system and help keep me regular. Yes, I know, poop talk but well, with a cleanse, you can’t avoid it. My digestive system has changed drastically ever since using this tea. Things are definitely regular for me and (tmi moment), I was having some issues prior to drinking this tea on a regular basis. I know that the combination of the Activate & Cleanse have really helped me. You don’t have to worry about having an accident in the middle of the night since you do drink the cleanse before you go to bed. I promise, it’s a gentle cleanse but effective! The smell of the cleanse tea isn’t that great. You can smell the peppermint in it but, well, it doesn’t smell that great. The strange thing is, you would expect something that smells bad to taste horrible as well but that’s not the case here. The Cleanse tea tastes just as yummy as the Activate tea. I wish you could drink the Cleanse tea every single night because it does relax me and help me wind down before bed.
Now let’s get into results. I was very skeptical. I was happy that this tea helped with bloating and with my digestive system in general and that in itself, was enough for me. What I didn’t expect was to lose 10 pounds. Yes, 10 pounds! 10.4 pounds if you want to get specific. I haven’t weighed myself in a couple of days and wouldn’t be surprised if I lost a little bit more. I am watching what I eat and I am working out 4-5 times a week so I know that helps a lot. I did stop taking all of my other supplements prior to starting this tea so I could really get a feel for how this tea works for me and my body. So my food choices, staying active, and the tea definitely have helped me lose some pounds. This makes me sooo happy! Remember though, every one is different. What works for me and my body may not work for someone else. But I can’t stress enough, if you want to try this tea out, please take into consideration that your diet and exercise will help aid in your results.
All in all, I am so happy with this tea and I will continue to purchase and drink it. As soon as I am completely done with this round of 4 weeks, I will be going back to taking my regular supplements along with this tea and will update again in about a month or so.
So from a skeptics point of view, this tea is definitely a big hit for me! I love it!! If you have any questions, ask away!!
