Yesterday I posted about the Khloe-Jameela feud over Khloe's endorsement of Flat Tummy tea. Jameela has been posting about how dangerous these teas are, and it inspired me to do my own research.
Detox teas are not new. They've been around forever, and the companies behind the teas tell people that the teas will take away bloat, help with weight loss, help with gut issues, and clear your skin. Celebrities are recruited to showcase these products, and young fans jump on the bandwagon.
Experts have studied these teas and they have found that the teas cause more harm than good.
Here's what can happen if you use detox teas and related crash diets:
GI doctors state that our bodies do a "perfectly good job of getting rid of toxins on its own," and that "there is no evidence that these diets are necessary or helpful."

To everyone out there who may be looking for weight loss products, steer clear of quick fixes, such as the detox teas, lollipops, and others. They cause more harm than good. It is in your best interest to do proper diet and exercise. If I can lose 60 pounds in less than a year by diet and exercise alone (along with caring for an infant on my own), you can reach your goals too. Do not jeopardize your health by using these products (Flat Tummy, Teami, etc), just because you saw Khloe Kardashian and her sisters use them. They paid for their bodies. They didn't work for them. Work for your body. Don't take the easy way out like they did.
Be well, guys!
