So you’ve seen Flat Tummy Tea splattered all over Instagram, always on a thin model with a flat stomach. You see it so much that you start to recognize the name and so does everyone else. Then you begin to wonder “hmmmm, does this stuff really work? Are these models really using it?” And then in creeps the fear of missing out.
That’s why I want to have an honest talk about it.
Shake it Baby
Shake it Baby is the meal replacement shake they offer over at Flat Tummy Tea. Ya’ll, it’s gross. Seriously- both the Matcha and Vanilla flavors make me gag… but especially the Matcha one. As a matter of fact, it was my first taste of Matcha anything and I never wanted to try Matcha again.
I couldn’t even handle the smell of the shake and had to hold my nose the entire time and chug it.
And the price of this? $160 to use it the way they recommend, which is two shakes a day.
So, if you can down these shakes, do they work? The thing is, if you’re replacing two meals a day, of course you’re going to end up in a calorie deficit which is how you lose weight.
They claim to have a super ingredient called “Super Citrimax” that aids in weight loss, but I cannot find any scientific studies that back this or any real information on it at all.
You can get a meal replacement with much less sugar (actually, no sugar)
The Actual Tea
The actual tea they sell just tastes like regular tea. It is $50 and you drink it twice a day.
Does it work? It does help with bloat and water weight, but that’s just temporary. You have to keep constantly drinking the tea to maintain that look. Once you stop, you’ll bloat up again.
It basically has the effect of a more gentle laxative.
I really don’t have much to say about it, it’s a tea. You can get something like it at an herbal store.
Flat Tummy Tea Lollipops
I won’t even try this one. They claim it’s an “appetite suppressant” and I don’t believe in trying to suppress your appetite 🤷🏼♀️ It’s normal to be hungry and have an appetite. And when you’re hungry you should eat healthy food, not a sugar filled lollipop to stop you from being hungry and eating real food.
And again, I cannot find any scientific articles backing the claims of their main ingredient.
So this gets a hard pass from me.
I think your money can be better spent elsewhere. It’s an expensive product and I just do not see it being worth that much.
