I’ve made the commitment! Today is the day I take the plunge into the world of detox. My husband and I are starting a 30-day detox and lifestyle change and I’m taking you on the journey with me! After hours of research, contacting multiple companies and reading other blog reviews, I decided to commit to the Teami 30-day detox to help get my body back in shape. In this post, you will find why I decided to do a detox, the benefits of a detox and my detox plan. Detox along with me and let’s get healthy together!

Why Detox?

There are tons of reasons why a lifestyle change can be beneficial and for many people, it may even be necessary.The last two years were a whirlwind for me and during that time I have let my wellbeing suffer. During this time and even before, I have suffered from stomach aches, trouble sleeping and difficulty losing weight. All of these things suggest I could greatly benefit from doing a detox and definitely need a lifestyle change. While I do workout and eat as healthy as possible, my schedule and a million excuses led to many missed workout classes and bad eating habits. Trust me you don’t make the same choices when you are overworked, overtired and eating late as you would if you took a little preparation before and meal prepped, or had something ready to be made right when you get home.

Benefits of a Detox

No, a detox is not a miracle worker and you shouldn’t do one that claims to be. You do have to eat well and workout to see lasting results. However, a detox can improve your life in many ways.

  • Improve metabolism
  • Aid in weight loss
  • Suppress appetite
  • Reduce bloating
  • Decrease water retention
  • Cleanse internal organs
  • Improve your skin

I am here to personally test out these claims and let you know on all my hardships, frustration and hopefully success along the way!

We chose to jump start our weight loss and lifestyle change with Teami’s 30 Day Detox. Teami is a tea company that sells All-Natural loose leaf tea. The 30 Day detox is actually a combination of drinking two of their tea blends. We will be combining that with a daily workout and following along with the detox meal plan suggested on their blog.

Teami Detox Tips

Exercise daily for 30 minutes or more.

Drink water! 8-10 glasses of water a day to prevent dehydration which can lead to dizziness, low energy, and headaches.

Add a full lemon to a glass of water to boost your metabolism and burn more fat!

Fruit should be your only source of sugar during the detox. Fruit is natural sugar and if you crave sugar all you have to do is grab some fruit!

Drink a glass of water 15 minutes before you eat to prevent overeating and aid digestion.

Use avocados as a healthy fat. Eat a quarter or half an avocado to reduce hunger and cravings.

Strive for nine, yes nine, servings of vegetables a day.

The Teami blog has fantastic recipes, detox tips and more.
