Tea to lose weight, does that work?
It is no secret that, after two pregnancies, I still have some extra weight. Just because I like it this way. Well, that’s not really true, of course. The truth is, I still can’t get rid of those last extra pounds. Recently, Apotheek Viata approached me if I would like to test the XLS Medical Slimming Tea, and I thought it was pretty exciting. I’ve seen some commercials of XLS Medical, but never tried one of their products before. Are you curious about whether or not this works?
There are 20 bags of tea in a box, and you are supposed to take 1 bag of tea per day. This means you can use a box for 20 days.
Information on the package, unfortunately this is only available in Dutch and French. The ingredients in this tea are mostly herbal. The package tells me the tea takes care of excess water in your body. If this makes you loose any weight, I’m not sure about that.
On the side of the package there’s some information about a healthy lifestyle. Nothing new here. The most important information is that you should use this tea for a limited time only. So in my case, I used it for 20 days. You should stop the ‘treatment’ for a while then, before starting to use it again.
The instruction tells you to leave your teabag for about 1 to 3 minutes in your cup of hot water. I like it when there’s some taste to my tea, so I left it for at least 3 minutes in the water. I liked the taste of the tea, but then, I like herbal teas. If it was necessary to drink this tea all day, I would not have a problem with that :).
And, Does it work?
Maybe the most important question of this post: does it work? Well, I’m not confinced yet. I already take care of a healthy lifestyle (or at least, I try), and I lost 2 pounds since I started using this tea. I can’t say I would have lost 2 pounds without drinking the tea, and then again: I can’t say I wouldn’t. Let’s be positive about it: I drink a lot of extra water because the tea I drink, is extra to the water I’m already drinking during the day, and that of course helps a bit in weight loss. But I like drinking the tea, so I’m going to finish the package. And I’m happy with the 2 pounds I lost!
