A Review of the Red Tea Detox Program
The Red Tea Detox is one of the fastest-rising programs today. It was developed by Elizabeth “Liz” Swann Miller, a naturopath (or expert in alternative medicine), and an Amazon best-selling author.
Miller developed the Red Tea Detox program after suffering from a delicate and difficult pregnancy. She found out about red tea in an African expedition. Red tea comes from the Rooibos plant, which grows in the western part of South Africa.
The Red Tea Detox program is comprised of several parts: the detox plan, a fast diet plan, an exercise plan, and a motivational book. Liz’s holistic approach to health is what attracted me to this program.
The program guide has 13 chapters and covers every part of the program. Liz uses very simple and direct language to explain every detail comprehensively. The first to fourth chapters deal with toxins, detoxification, and weight loss. Its fifth chapter contains the red tea blend recipe for detoxifying. The next three chapters discuss nutrient intake, fat burning, and metabolism. By giving a full background on food health, you’ll know what you’re getting into, and the rationale for the diet plan. Chapter 1o discusses the diet plan in full, while chapter 11 is a post-detox health tracking guide. Chapter 12 gives readers the motivation to live a healthy lifestyle in the long term. The final chapter is on exercise and workouts.
The detox plan is very simple. You drink the red tea blend for fourteen days together with a recommended eating plan. The first phase of the detox plan is where most of the detoxification occurs. The second and third phase focus on healing your body from removing all the excess toxins. The good thing about it is that you don’t feel any hunger since the red tea blend fills your satiety level to the brim. You find yourself not having cravings despite changing the food that you eat.
The red tea blend is also very affordable to make. You can make different blends with different ingredients you can easily find in your local market, such as flaxseed oil, leafy greens and citrus fruits.
The program’s diet plan does not promote starving but advocates for consuming less carbs, and more vegetables and protein. It is divided into four phases. The first phase focuses on consuming vegetables and protein. The next two phases focus on the short fasting program, which involves fat fasting. The last phase of the diet plan talks about creating a caloric deficit.
Liz’s program encourages you to create motivations yourself through journal writing. She tells you to own the experience. Fantastic!
Liz recommends cardio, resistance and strength training exercises to complement the detox and diet programs. I’ve done most of the exercises recommended, except resistance training, which I’m just learning now.
