Mother: There are affiliate links in this post. As our regular readers know, daughter and I are always on a weight loss mission. Even though we both know it is dedication to your diet and exercise we are always on the look out for the “magic formula”. As I have said before I have tried it all in an effort to lose the extra poundage that wants to cling to me.
I am a reader. And if something mentions that it can assist with weight loss I am in!!! A couple of months ago I was reading Yahoo news, that is where I get much of my info, and one of the articles was ” Have you tried the latest weight loss trend, tea.” Well I love tea. I drink tea all day long, green matcha tea, black tea, all of the Aloha teas. I like my tea hot or iced, so tea that is going to remove some weight , I am all over it!! Upon reading the article the weight loss tea is not your run of the mill type tea, it is a “special” tea. Not only will it help pounds melt away it will also de-tox your liver. I am not sure my liver needs de-toxed but hey, I am willing to give it a try. All of Hollywood is drinking this tea so why not me??? Right??
Slendertoxtea is the brand I went with, sold on Amazon. First I went to the Slendertoxtea website but it is shipped from the UK and pricing is in francs. I didn’t want to go that route so I found it on Amazon, like it was coming from somewhere other than the UK, right? Some days my thought process is more on point than others. But on Amazon it was in good ol American dollars. You get two bags of different tea bags in your order. The pink is Daytox which you drink every morning and the blue is Sleeptox which you drink every other night before going to bed. According to Amazon the Sleeptox doesn’t cause a “laxative” effect like some diet teas do. But, if you read the information about the tea, you find out that is why you only drink it every other night, it can keep you in the bathroom. Let me tell you, every other night was too much for me, out of a month I drank the Sleeptox twice and that was plenty.
Did I lose any weight? Not an ounce. Was my liver de-toxed, who knows. Did I have more energy, was my metabolism increased, did I have less bloating, no, no, and no. Was my wallet $43.99 lighter? Yes, yes it was. O well, what can I say, I know that sooner or later that “magic formula” is going to come a long and I will be right on top of it.
Daughter: A few weeks ago, a co-worker of mine, was ranting and raving over a new fat burner she was taking. She went on and on about how much weight she lost the very first week and the week after, how her triceps weren’t as giggly and how much more energy she was experiencing. Soooo, of course I had to try it! I was especially interested in the more energy aspect of it. With more energy one is able to “move” more which means more calories being burned….right? Now don’t get me wrong, I was quite curious about the weight loss part as well, but being as my co-workers are 15+ years younger than me, I am well aware that my body works a little differently then theirs. But never-the-less, I placed my order.
I ordered the Lean Fat Burner for Her from Fit Affinity. The packaging is great with the vibrant pink against the black background. Even the capsules are pink and black! The directions state to take two capsules daily with food. And to power up for a work out to take them 30 minutes before working out. Wanting to make sure they did not make me jittery, I only took one per day.
In the first week, I did have more energy but only every other day. This was very odd, I had never had that happen before. On the days that I did not have extra energy I did take another capsule to try to get a boost, but it never kicked in. Total pounds lost in the first week was 0. In week two, I started to notice I was not sleeping well, I was tossing and turning and waking up tired. Now I am a good sleeper!! I know too many people that just cannot sleep and are constantly complaining and going through their days in a fog due to a lack of sleep….I refuse to become one of them, lol. Because of that, I discontinued the capsules. I do not take my wonderful nights of restful sleep for granted and I refuse to even dabble with something that will hamper it.
So let me sum up this review! The packaging is great but that’s all it has going for it’s self. Out of 14 days I only had four days with increased energy, I lost no weight and it was messing with my sleep. Obviously, this is not the product for me.
