Advantages: lose a few lbs, effective slimming aid
Disadvantages: you may need to run to the toilet
I would like to like to begin by stating that I am not someone who is obsessed by diets, my weight (having never been on a diet) or celebrities bodies. I would consider myself to be a healthy (ish) person who has the odd treat and on occassions needs to tone up a little.
So, how did I come across Slimatee? I work with a guy who is a bit of a health freak and who in his spare time is a drag artist. He uses Slimatee before a show to banish those few extra pounds to ensure that he fits into the his tightest of lycra dresses!! He recommended Slimatee to me so thought I would give it a try as I was a Bridesmaid to my now Sister-in-Law. In terms of dresses, Satin can be very unforgiving, so I needed to lose a few pounds to be comfortable in the dress.
So what is Slimatee? Slimatee is made by a company called 'Ideal Health' and is a natural herbal aid. Slimatee are herbal tea bags containing the main ingredients of Frangula and Senna - yes folks it is a mild laxative in a tea bag!! It is a range of Kuritees that have been developed over many years of experience and represent the ultimate in quality teas. The filter bags are made from unbleached paper pulp and are therefore light brown in colour.
Slimatee has an enegy value less than 50Kj per 100ml of tea made up as directed and can only help slimming or weight control, as part of a controlled diet. Also, intake of fresh fruits should be increased in any such diet.
Slimatee is packaged in a green cardboard box and is available in packs of 10 or 20 tea bags. These can be bought from www.goodnessdirect.co.uk and a box of 20 will cost £2.47. You are also able to buy Slimatee from Holland and Barrett, however they don't advertise this product on their website, so can only get this in-store.
One teabag is sufficient for one cup and Slimatee is prepared by pouring a cup of boiling water over the teabag and allowing to infuse for 5 minutes. Personally, I am not fussed on drinking this hot, so I tend to let it cool for 10-15 minutes and drink it is one go, as like other herbal teas - they never seem to taste as good as they smell!!
So, lets get down to what it does. Basically, Slimatee is a herbal laxative, yet mild enough to be used for a two week period. From experience you need to think about your plans for the day before rushing to the shops to buy it and putting the kettle on!! It is recommended that one cupful to be taken at night for up to 2 weeks in any two month period. The reason for this is that due to the fact that you do really lose weight and also it's not healthy to be permanently stuck to your toilet seat.
As recommeded you should drink one cup at night. It takes a good nine hours or so to start working (however this may differ from person to person). I find that it suits me to have a cup around 6 pm, but never later than 9 pm. The reason for this - I made the mistake of drinking the tea after 9 pm. I woke up the next morning around 7am and whilst having my breakfast was thinking that this tea hadn't had an effect on me. I left for work at 8am and half way through my journey my stomach started rumbling and had to make a detour to the nearest toilet! Only once did I make this mistake - you need to give yourself plenty of time to use the bathroom after drinking Slimatee. Whatever you do, do not attempt to drink 2 cups in one day as you will regret it and could have stomach cramps.
Apart from the obvious that you will need to go to the bathroom, I have not experienced any side effects with Slimatee. Also when you have finished taking the tea for 2 weeks you don't suffer from constipation as you wait for your bowels to return to normal.
A few cautions to be aware of - this product should not be taken:
by persons under 16 years old
by those suffering from intestinal problems
Slimatee also needs to be stored in a cool dry place.
Now we all know that to lose wight you need to eat a healthy balanced diet, drink 2 lts of water a day and excercise. The adavantage of Slimatee is that it is a great herbal aid to kick start a healthy regime, so if you have a holiday, party, special event coming up and want to banish some pounds - give it a try. It is recommeded that you take it a few days before an event as you wouldn't want to be running back and for the the toilet.
I would recommend this product to anyone as a short term measure for those who need a helping hand to start a healthy lifestyle and want a flatter stomach.
Slimatee ingredients - each tea bag contains:
Fangula Bark, Senna Leaf, Peppermint Leaf, Hibiscus flowers, Blacktea, Goldenrod Herb and Mate Tee.
Other products in the range include:
