MateFit Tea Detox

MateFit tea has been around the inter web for awhile. I got really excited when they agreed to send me a sample, and I have enjoyed every bit of it! Many celebrities advocate MateFit and I can see why! From the cute colorful tumblers to the sweet taste of the daytime tea, it’s a pretty good choice.

Also, a big part of teatoxing is eating healthy! Check out my video blog here for healthy recipes.

My tea arrived in a decent amount of time, and I got really excited when I opened the box and realized a pretty blue tea tumbler was inside! What a nice gift from MateFit!

I used the 14 Day Teatox because it’s a good quick one to see how you like it!

How MateFit is Different

MateFit differs from other tea detoxes because all of the tea comes loose leaf. They don’t expect you to own a steeper and don’t provide you with one either. Instead, they provide you with tea bags so you can make your own! I really liked this because if I wanted a little more flavor I could add a little bit more, and I still had enough for all 14 days. It is the same as many other 14 day tea detoxes as it has a daytime tea to be taken everyday, even a couple times a day, and has a nighttime tea that is to be taken every other day.

It also differs because many of the ingredients are organic, and the daytime tea already includes stevia extract which gives it a little extra flavor. I didn’t feel the need to add any honey or lemon to the tea, which many other tea detoxes need in order to drink every day.

Day 1: 

My first day was pretty good. I really like the taste of the tea it is rather delicious! I also really enjoy the tumbler because I can take my tea on the go if I don’t get a chance to drink it in the morning. Overall my first day consisted of drinking, and enjoying the metabolic boost tea!

I did take the detox tea the first day as well. I really like the taste of the detox tea, the minty flavor was pretty refreshing and made me del like I was freshening up my insides with every sip!

Day 7:

A week has gone by and I have noticed that my stomach looks extremely flat. Friends and family have also noticed, (since my stomach is out a lot due to the fact that it’s summer!) And have mentioned how toned and tight my stomach looks. I also feel like I have a ton of energy and I am not overeating like I used to. So far the tea detox is going really well and the taste is really good!

I only did this tea detox for a week because I was feeling great and wanted to save the tea for later! I really enjoyed the taste of this tea and I realized results in my bloating, my appetite, and my energy level. I had tons of energy

PROS: 

Packaging: The packaging is basic. They all come in looseleaf tea. I like the fact that they give you tea bags to make yourself, because you can decide how much or how little you desire based on your taste preferences.

Taste: I really like the taste of both teas, but specifically the daytime tea. My first reaction was “This tea tastes like diet tea!” But I realized that was probably from the powdered organic stevia they put in to sweeten it.

Quality: The quality is really good. Not only does MateFit rely on a lot of organic blends for their teas, it seems they put a lot of effort into the taste profile as well.

Pros From Other Customers: These teas are not just for women or people who want to lose weight, they are for people who want to make healthy choices. – Rachel from SkinGossip.blogspot

CONS:

Packaging: No packaging cons, just simple packaging.

Taste: Some people may think this tea has an acquired taste, but I personally really like it!

Quality: Nothing to say here!

Cons From Other Customers: Upon reading other reviews, I have seen some people complain that this tea doesn’t help them lost weight. My reaction to that, is they are probably eating and drinking whatever they want, not working out, and expecting the tea to work magic.

AlternativesYourTea, SkinnyTeatox, SkinnyMe Tea Detox, Teadetox, Nudey Tea Detox, and more… *reviews coming soon*

This tea, just like the other tea detoxes I have done, is meant to be coupled with a nutrition and workout regimen. And ultimately, a change in Lifestyle. None of these tea detoxes work magic, they simply help your body cleanse, release toxins, and speed up metabolism. The rest is up to you!

Your special dedication to passing the message along was wonderfully effective and have without exception encouraged those like me to realize their pursuits. The interesting help and advice signifies a great deal to me and especially to my peers. Thank you; from all of us.

  9. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  10. I was just looking for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.

  11. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share. Cheers!

  12. Hi,

    I’m concerned whether the tea will have adverse effects after I am done with the cleanse. I’m just concerned if it will mess with my metabolism too much and therefore make me gain weight. Thank you for your help!

    1. As a personal trainer I would NOT recommend this or any detox. The reason? Exactly what you said-it WILL mess up your metabolism. Any weight you might lose is not going to be fat, but water weight and potentially muscle (the reason for ruining your metabolism). Instead of trying this, aim to make half of your plate veggies at most meals and go for whole foods versus drinking calories as often as possible. Good Luck!

  13. I can’t decide if I want to try Your Tea or Mate Fit. Since you have tried both, I was we wondering if you could tell me what one you prefer?

  14. Hello, I was wondering a few things:
    1. were there any side effects of the teas?
    2. Did you continue to make healthier choices when you were done the detox?
    3. Did you gain any or all of the weight you lost back after completing the detox?
    Please let me know 🙂

    1. Hey Christina!

      The only side effects I noticed were a stomach ache and sometimes painful bowel movements the morning after taking the detox tea! This is because the detox tea contains senna root which has a laxative effect on the body. The reason it’s considered a detox!

      I did continue to make healthy choices, but that’s all willpower. If you have trouble making healthier choices, doing the detox will be a good way to start getting used to eating healthy and working out regularly. After the detox is over its up to you to keep it going!

      I didn’t gain any weight back because I kept eating healthy and working out. My weight does fluctuate easily if I stop my healthy lifestyle, but it has nothing to do with the detox itself!

      I hope I helped!

  15. Hey!
    I was wondering how you got the samples? I really want to try the 14 day teatox & metabolic boost but I really want to see if they will work for me. & also what types of foods should i completely stay away from since I’m barely starting to work out . Thanks

    1. Hi Crystal!

      I got the samples because I promised to write this review for them! I would say go for it, but only if you’re ready to change the way you eat and workout! Even if you’re only working out once or twice a week it’ll improve your results. Stay away from sugars (soda, candy, ice cream, bread – yep bread) And stay away from bad carbs like bread, pasta, etc. Go for good carbs like leafy green veggies, eat lean meats, drink TONS of water, and never skip breakfast! Your first meal prepares your body’s natural metabolism for the rest of the day! Hope that helped! I’m going to be shooting a video blog soon relating to all of these questions I’ve been getting!

      Good luck!

  16. Just purchased the 14 day mini teatox. I plan on using it and the metabolic boost. My question is how long can you use it? Every couple months for the cleanse? Am I supposed to be using the metabolic boost forever?

    1. Hi joy!

      Due to the effects senna root has on the digestive tract, frequent and continuous use isn’t recommended. I would say every 3-6 months to cleanse, but realistically this should help you kick start your diet and workout plan so you don’t have to use it often! In regards to using the metabolic boost forever, I believe you should only use it combined with the detox. I’m not sure if MateFit recommends otherwise, but when I feel like my metabolism needs a boost I use green tea or water with lemon. Hope I helped!

    1. Hi Jess!

      The senna root that is in the detox is meant to cleanse your colon and you body. Using it too much can lead you to become dehydrated or give you a really bad stomach ache. The metabolic boost contains caffeine and tons of other organic ingredients, so it’s okay to drink every day. The senna root is meant to be taken every other night.

      You can take it every day, but I don’t recommend it and MateFit doesn’t either!! Hope that helped!

    1. Hi Andres!

      Both worked wonders with my bloating, but I would say MateFit worked better in terms of weight loss. But don’t forget! These teas aren’t magic. Utilizing healthy eating habits, drinking lots of water, and engaging in at least an hour worth of exercise a day will really help to reduce bloat and lose weight.

      One thing I did personally was cut out refined carbohydrates such as white rice, white bread, flour, etc. That really contributed to my bloating and once I cut it out it basically disappeared! Another thing to consider is the amount of sodium you’re taking in daily, as well as sugar. Both of these things can contribute to excess water weight which in turn makes you look and feel bloated.

      The reason I liked MateFit more is because they had a nighttime tea that has senna in it, which has a laxative affect on the body which can aid in weight loss.

      I hope my answer and article helped!
