You’re tired of feeling heavy, bloated, and dealing with a slow digestion.
You’re more than ready to drop the extra pounds and feel light and energized again, right?
Starting a gentle Teatox detox is a fantastic way to boost your metabolism, promote faster and healthy weight-loss, and restart your digestion – all with organic and natural ingredients that actually taste good.
Detoxing may sound challenging, but, if done right, it’s an easy and energizing process that will leave you feeling renewed, recharged, and lighter.
Before you begin your detox, I want to share with you pro tips that will help you enjoy the process and avoid common pitfalls.
Follow these simple do’s and don’ts to make the most out of your detox and hit your weight-loss goals:
What Not To Do
1. Don’t starve yourself
Rule number one: Don’t make yourself miserable.
Detoxing is not supposed to be a strict and boring diet that keeps you hungry.
Your Teatox teas will help you reduce bloating and stimulate weight-loss, along with a healthy diet rich in fruit and veggies.
Don’t skip any meals during this period. Eat as you normally would, including your teas twice a day. It’s as simple as that.
2. Don’t stop exercising
A detox is a good reason to keep up your fitness routine – not to stop it.
The Teatox teas stimulate your metabolism so you can burn more fat and calories, which boosts your workouts.
Combine a calorie-blasting exercise routine with your fat-burning tea, and you have a recipe for easy and healthy weight-loss.
3. Don’t obsess over your weight
Remember rule number one? Don’t make yourself miserable. That also applies to your behavior during your detox.
Be careful not to obsess over the number on the scale.
A detox will help you drop pounds, but it should also make you feel good from the inside out.
Focus on the good you’re doing for your body: You’re cleansing it and giving it a fresh start so you can feel your best.
It can be easy to obsess over how much weight we want to lose, and that can take away our joy.
Instead, focus on the healthy changes you’re making, and how they make you feel.
4. Avoid processed food
Enjoy all the fresh meals you want during your detox, but cut out processed foods.
Junk food is filled with harmful and addictive ingredients that slow down your metabolism and digestion – which means they reduce the rate at which you burn calories.
In fact, junk food may be one of the reasons your body needs a detox, so cut them out of your diet. You will notice a dramatic difference in your energy, weight, and mental clarity.
What To Do
1. Nourish your body with fresh meals
Whole foods provide nutrients and benefits that support the detox process.
The best nutrient-dense foods to eat during your detox are:
- Leafy greens and vegetables: Bring on the kale, lettuce, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, and everything in between.
- Berries: Berries are low-calorie fruits with weight-loss promoting properties.
- Low-sugar fruits: peaches, nectarines, watermelons, apricots, melons, cantaloupe, grapefruit, lemons, and limes.
- Lean meats: If you’re not a vegetarian or vegan, salmon, sardine, tuna, cage-free eggs and grass-fed poultry are healthier choices of meat.
- Pulses: Beans, garbanzos, lentils, and more.
- Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts.
- Seeds: Chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and quinoa.
- Complex cereals: Oats and brown rice.
- Healthy fats: Avocado, coconut oil, nut butter, MCT oil.
2. Pick an exercise routine you enjoy
Get your sweat on!
A detox helps you keep momentum on your exercise routine because it promotes fat burning.
To make sure you stick to your fitness routine, choose something you truly enjoy.
If going to the gym isn’t your thing, bike in the park, run 15 minutes in the mornings, do yoga in your living room, take a walk around your neighborhood, or try a dance class.
The important thing is you stay active.
You can even take an iced Teatox in a bottle during your run or at the gym.
3. Take the time to savor your tea
For best results, enjoy your Teatox twice a day, ideally in the morning and the afternoon.
Drink your tea with mindfulness and calm.
Taking a moment to enjoy and savor this daily habit will help you stay motivated and focused. Think of it as a mini morning and afternoon ritual.
4. Keep it interesting
Switch up your daily teas by preparing them either hot or cold.
5. Appreciate yourself
Be proud of the healthy choices you’re making. Recognize you’re doing an effort to be healthier and fitter, and congratulate yourself for it.
When you hit a milestone, treat yourself. For example, if you’ve been detoxing for a week (along with healthy food and exercise), schedule a self-care session at a spa (or in your bath!).
6. Invite a friend
Double the fun by inviting a friend to join you. You can detox together and keep each other on track.
If you don’t want to go at it alone, we have a special 1-Month Bestie Teatox so you can get healthier with a friend (yay!).
Detox the right way
The most important thing is that you enjoy this process. On top of eating healthy and moving your body, avoid stressing out, appreciate your efforts, and even detox along with your friends.
