DISCLAIMER :- I do not work for HOLLAND AND BARRATT or Slimatee, or sell anything to do with Slimatee. I’m simply just a mummy trying to shift a few (by a few I mean a lot) pounds!
I had started to look around online at these ‘teatox’ teas being advertised. After seeing the price of them, I thought twice and started to ask around. One woman mentioned ‘Slimatee’ from Holland and Barrett, so I started reading reviews and doing a little research on it before making my purchase.
At just £3.69 for a box of 20, I bought myself 2 boxes at buy one get one half price, because you know how I love a special offer (offers change all the time, offer was correct at time of purchase – Aug 2015).
When my tea arrived it took me over a week to actually open it and start drinking my daily cup, as I was being told lots of dodgy stories about it, mainly bathroom related!
Once I started, the first thing I noticed was the taste – exactly like peppermint tea. I love peppermint tea so it wasn’t hard to swallow at all.
About 10 hours after drinking the tea, I noticed some mild cramps in my tummy but nothing else. 12 hours later, a short bathroom trip was required, but really nothing out of the ordinary (SORRY!!).
I continued to drink one cup a day for 14 days, once in the morning around 8/9am. I changed my diet as well. I cut down on snacks and bread, and ate low calorie crisps and fruit instead of snacking on junk.
I ate all my own home cooked meals for dinner, I usually had an omelette and salad for lunch and toasted Nimble bread with cottage cheese, yogurt and fruit for breakfast.
By day 14 I had lost 10lbs.
So my conclusion is…if you want Slimatee to work, you HAVE to eat healthily alongside it. Drink plenty of water and green tea too. I have to admit I did NO exercise at all, as I am still suffering with pelvic arthropathy after giving birth (horrible!).
Slimatee seems to be more of a colon cleanse, rather than a ‘miracle cure’ for being overweight! In my opinion there is no quick fix for losing weight, the real key to it is a healthy diet and exercise! Although, it definitely helped my tummy feel a LOT less bloated and I didn’t feel tired or sluggish anymore, which for me was fantastic.
*Remember – do not drink it for longer than 14 days in any 2 month period and ONLY have ONE cup per day! (check with Holland and Barrett/your pharmacist/your GP if you are unsure about anything please!)
….I’m looking forward until I can drink it again, so yes, I would recommend it!
