I enjoyed today’s Dr. Oz episode about his 5 Day Teatox Guide to weight loss by drinking herbal teas that will help you to lose weight and shrink your belly by reducing bloat and water retention. His guide also outlines on how to lose weight from eliminating the foods that are causing the bloating and water weight retention problems in the first place.
Don’t Buy Expensive Teatox Diet Plans At The Store
Dr. Pina Logiudice (naturopathic doctor) explained how they add senna leaf extract to these teatox products. Senna leaf extract is safe to be taken occasionally but no on an everyday basis because your digestive tract will become dependent on the senna leaf and the natural laxative effects will eventually disappear and will actually lead to constipation!
Dr Oz 5 Day Teatox Step by Step Guide :
- First of all you should start out be eliminating the foods that cause stomach bloat and water weight gain. You should avoid excess sodium and processed starchy foods.
- Don’t eat saturated and processed food sources.
After eliminating your foods you will quickly begin to notice that your face will be less “puffy”. This is where you will lose water weight first.
Reduce Belly Bloat With Teatox Teas and Elimination Diet
Bloating problems are caused by gas created during digestion. The types of teas listed below will help to detox the body and reduce water weight. They will also help to curb cravings in between meals.

Don’t pay for those very expensive teatox plans that are advertised everywhere. You can make your own teatox formula in the comfort of your home at just a fraction of the cost!
Replace Morning Coffee with Dandelion Tea
Dandelion Tea has been shown to have detoxifying effects on the body and helps to repair the liver. It also helps to lower your blood pressure and will clear up your skin. Dr. Oz and Dr. Logiudice gave the tip of adding honey to the dandelion tea if you feel that it is too bitter.
Eat A Healthy Breakfast
Dr. Logiudice suggests that you eat a protein based breakfast.. Her tip was to eat 2 eggs with avocado slices on either a corn starch pancake or almond flour tortilla. An alternative to her suggestion could also be a breakfast like oats with cinnamon, blueberries and almonds.
Eat Soup for Lunch
Eat a nutrition soup. The added water content will help make you feel full. Also with your stew (or soup) have a cup of Fennel Seed Ginger Tea. Fennel Seed and Ginger are both great for digestion and they act as a natural diuretic to help you lose water weight.
Make Fennel Seed Ginger Tea at Home
Dr. Oz suggested making your own tea using 1/2 teaspoons of crushed fennel seeds, 1 tsp of minced ginger and 1 teaspoon of honey in boiling water. Pour into a mug (after it cools and steeps) and enjoy 2 cups a day.
In Between Lunch Drink Oolong Tea
Oolong tea is loaded with antioxidants and will also wake you up if you starting to drag.. Oolong tea contains caffeine so don’t drink after 5 or 6 PM.
Tip : Add a cinnamon stick to the tea for some added flavor.
Teatox Guide Tip – No Carbs for Dinner
You should limit your carbs for dinner while on the 5 Day Teatox plan. Under Dr. Oz’s step by step guide he suggests a chicken salad with a cabbage or spinach base. Add a few vegetables like tomatoes, asparagus, brussel sprouts, carrots, etc.. If you don’t want a chicken salad you can choose another protein source (without carbs) like fish.
Drink Milk Thistle Before Bed
Milk Thistle is a wonderful detox tea.. This teatox drink will also help you lose water weight at bloat because it acts as a diuretic while also being beneficial to your liver, gallbladder and kidneys.
