For centuries, herbal teas have been revered for their health benefits. Originating in southwest China, Tibet and Northern India, tea has long been used for its supposed medicinal and spiritual properties.
Tea is now thought to possess a powerful ability to melt stubborn body fat, but studies show that although tea may provide many other benefits, this one may be the offspring of wishful thinking.
Celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Hillary Duff, Vanessa Hudgens, and Lindsay Lohan are touting the miracles of teatoxing. Big name detox teas like Fit Tea, My Slim Tea and even coffees like Skinny Coffee Club are taking over young celebs’ social media accounts, taking credit for helping them lose weight before playing a role, or to stay refreshed and invigorated.
They sound great, right? But is it really possible for a nice cozy drink to give you the body of your dreams?

Kim Kardashian recently gave birth to a baby boy and has resumed her role as Atkins ambassador to lose the 40 pounds she gained during her pregnancy. Kim followed the controversial diet after her first pregnancy, and said she had such great results, she’s doing it again.
We spoke with Colette Heimowitz, vice president of nutrition and education at Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. who is working with Kim directly to shed the baby weight this time around.
Heimowitz told DietinReview.com Kim will be following the Atkins 40 program, an extension of Atkins 20, which is the same high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet, but gives people more flexibility in the foods they eat and a few more grams of carbs to work with while still promoting weight loss.
