I think they’re fine if you research it and want to do it for health reasons but not to lose weight! I don’t believe in doing anything radical such as starving yourself and only drinking juices to lose weight! Losing weight is a lifestyle change not something you can drink away. Lets be real, who on a juice cleanse is happy and doesn’t eat a burger the second they finish? It’s just not natural for our bodies to only drink juice! It’s healthier for you if you just eat fresh vegetables and fruits! You’ll lose more weight that way by making your metabolism work and break down fiber and such! Juice would be a great alternative for breakfast, lunch, or snack though if you are trying to lose weight!
I don’t care how “natural” or “herbal” they claim to be - to me there is nothing “natural” about drinking laxatives to the point where you cannot get through a day or a few hours without running to the bathroom..
I personally do not support any of the “detox” or “weightloss” teas. Nor do i think any fit or “skinny” person should be advocating them.. I know my image is used by a lot of their sites but i do not give them permission to do so. I have been contacted by about 20 different tea companies and am appalled that they want someone as thin as myself to promote their tea. Obviously if I was to lose any weight that would be unhealthy and i’m shocked that is the image they are trying to represent..
I don’t really know why, but i do understand that I have the ability to reach out to a lot of young girls, as a large percentage of my following would be teenage girls (i mean that in a purely factual way - i really hope it isn’t perceived as arrogant!) i don’t wish at all to promote or use these kinds of tea, as I firmly believe that 1. It would be creating such an unhealthy image to those who follow me (if I am this skinny and am using “skinny teas”, then what kind of image is that giving to others? And 2. One of my biggest gials is to help others in any way - including being able to gracefully embrace and accept one self for them.. I don’t think anyone should have to change what they look like to be a better person or well liked. And i feel that if i were to endorse these kinds of teas then it would be completely contradictory of me.
I know a lot of other “well known” young women endorse these kinds of teas because they get paid a lot to do so. But someone could offer me millions and i still wouldn’t do it because i don’t believe in the cause.
I think it creates an unhealthy illusion in society.. Especially by getting girls who are already thin to promote the teas.
I just don’t agree with the whole concept and feel it is unhealthy not only physically but more so mentally - the same companies (and even some of the people who endorse these skinny teas) attempt to endorse self acceptance whilst selling “weight loss” tea.. It seems entirely contradictory to me.
Yes, i do feel strongly about this and it does anger me that it has become a phase. But i do recognise that we all have our own minds to make our own opinions. Just because mine varies from others doesn’t make it right nor wrong!
I’ll stick to regular green tea any day thanks! X
Couldn’t have said it better myself! Just buy green tea girls! Much cheaper, healthier, and revs up your metabolism in a natural way!
Aww thank you, you’re so sweet! Totally jealous you’re from Mexico! If I could live in one place in the world it would be along the coast in Mexico!
I love psychology and think it is super interesting but I chose it as my major primarily because it was easy for me and easy to transfer, but I don’t want to be a clinical psychologist or a psych teacher by any means. I actually don’t have any desire to work in the psych field or get my doctorate in psychology which you need if you want a job in the field except for political psychology which is new! The good news is you can do anything with a degree in psych and work in any field really, it’s one of those basic degrees like liberal arts!
I only use VSCOcam!
