Best teas to jump-start your 'teatox' program
Looking to lose weight? Forget the detox, try a "teatox."
A teatox is simple. Dieters simply drink several cups of herbal tea during the day, in addition to eating food. The idea is that drinking warm tea will help keep you full between meals and keep snacking at bay.
But does it work?
"Detoxing with tea may well produce initial, albeit temporary weight loss," said Tanya Zuckerbrot, a registered dietitian and founder of the F-Factor Diet, her clinical practice in New York City that provides nutritional counseling. "Similar to any liquid diet, a tea detox or teatox works by restricting calories so that you consume fewer calories than you burn in a day."
