Enter: Flat Tummy Co's Flat Tummy’s 30 Day Detox programs. There's alot of buzz and information out there about detox teas and "skinny smoothies". You have a shake for breakfast, some detox tea in the afternoon, and POOF, no more bloat! If you think this sounds too good to be true, then you're not the only one! To see if it was on the up-and-up, we had one of our editors try Flat Tummy's Weight Management Shakes and the #1 Original Detox Tea

Meet The Editor:
One of our editors volunteered to see test out the Flat Tummy Tea weight loss program. For four weeks, she had a Flat Tummy shake for breakfast with the morning tea, and then the night tea every couple of nights. Here's her experience:
Why Try The Flat Tummy Tea Weight Loss Program?
I was always a little overweight most of my life. Most of the people in my family are heavy, so all of our family events and special occassions were centered around food.
When I was in the fifth grade, it finally hit me that I was heavier than the other girls. I started thinking, "If I want boys to like me, then I should probably lose a little weight." My family was very supportive of my decision, as they all believed the entire family could benefit from losing some weight. I normally fluctuated between 20 and 30 pounds, but the weight always came back.
With the added poinds from the quarantine, I thought now would be the perfect time to try a new weight loss program.
What Was Your Experience on the 30 Day Program?
The first thing I want to point out - the shakes are absolutely DELICIOUS. I normally like everything chocolate-flavored, but I decided to go with the Strawberry flavor, mixed with unsweetened almond milk and unflavored Greek yogurt.
I'm all for routine, so I never deviated from my simple ingredients in my shake. However, because the shakes are lower in calories than most blends, you can flexible with your ingredients.
Because the shakes taste so good, I honestly didn't know they were also working. I drank one each morning as a meal replacement to my normal breakfast, and another one after my morning workout. One thing I noticed was that the shakes are quite filling, so don't worry too much about hunger between meals.
The detox tea, of course, is pretty tasty too. I'm normally a coffee drinker, but I decided to swap my usual morning cup of joe with tea (once every morning, then every 2-3 nights also). It reminded me of a minty flavor, delightful to drink.
If I had to say anything critical about the weight loss program, I will say that my time in the bathroom increased. As you guess, your body is going through a full detox, so I used the bathroom more than normal, especially those mornngs after I drank the nighttime tea. It takes a bit of getting used to, but it's far from unbearable. Me spending more time in the bathroom clearly meant that the detox was working. I will say that I never felt nauseous, sick, or uncomfortable.
Close to the middle of the program, I began to notice a decrease in bloating, and a spike in my energy levels. Also, I was making healthier lifestyle choices - spending time time in the gym and cooking more at home was a supplemental step that really made me see results with the detox program.
Results of Weight Loss Program
Honestly, anyone looking for a detox to help with weight loss should give this program a try. Even you're a little skeptical and not completely sold, you can ease yourself into the program. Looking for a tasty start to your day that also gives you an energy boost? The shakes would be great for you. Looking for a tea alternative that provides many weight loss benefits and decreases bloat? The teas would be great for you. If you're like me and want to go all with your fitness goals for the new year, then you can't go wrong with the full weight loss program.
Also, I was on my cycle in both of the before-and-after pics (beginning and end of the month-long program). I can honestly say that I felt way more comfortable and less bloated in the second picture - a good enough benefit from the tea that guarantees I'll keep some in stock!
Your Favorite Thing About the Weight Loss Program
Hands down, I absolutely LOVED the Flat Tummy Lollipops. Since I was swapping out some of my regular meals with the shakes, I wanted to make sure that I didn't have any uncontrollable cravings in-between meals. These lollipops did the trick - they're only about 30 calories and the flavors are AMAZING.
