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 fast 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.
4 Things You Should Never Do During Your Teatox
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. Our Teatox teas, when combined with a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, will reduce bloating and stimulate weight loss.
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. Our 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 healthy and effective weight loss.
3. Don’t obsess over your weight
Remember rule number one? It 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.
6 Things You Should Always Do During Your Teatox
1. Nourish your body with fresh foods
Whole foods provide nutrients and benefits that support the detox process. Here are the best nutrient-dense foods to eat during your teatox:
- Leafy greens and vegetables: Bring on the kale, lettuce, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, and everything in between.
- Berries: Berries are low in calories and promote weight loss.
- Low-sugar fruits: These include peaches, nectarines, watermelons, apricots, melons, cantaloupe, grapefruit, lemons, and limes.
- Lean meats: Salmon, sardine, tuna, cage-free eggs, and grass-fed poultry are healthier choices of meat.
- Pulses: Fill up on fiber-rich beans, garbanzos, and lentils.
- Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, cashews, and hazelnuts make a great snack.
- Seeds: Chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and quinoa are delicious on or in a salad.
- Complex cereals: Oats and brown rice are great options.
- Healthy fats: The healthiest options are avocado, coconut oil, nut butter, and 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. This 20-minute bodyweight routine will tone your total body, and you can do it anywhere.
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 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.
Switch up your daily teas by preparing them either hot or cold. Here’s how to make a perfect cup of hot or iced tea.
4. Appreciate what you’re doing
Be proud of the healthy choices you’re making. Recognize you’re making 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!
5. Hold yourself accountable
Here’s a great way: Invite a friend to join you. You’ll detox together and keep each other on track. (Peer pressure isn’t all bad!) We’ve created this special 1-Month Bestie Teatox for friends who want to detox together.
6. Enjoy the process
This is by far the most important thing to do! You’re eating healthy, moving your body, and easing stress. Recognize that every day, you’re taking one step closer to a fitter, healthier, happier you!
