I'd be remiss if I didn't first mention that I know the Kardashians get paid a ton of money for their (carefully constructed) Instagrams of this product.

Of course, they do.

But that doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't work. So, I decided to test that theory and try Fit Tea for a full 14 days and record how I felt, what I saw, and if, at the end, it fulfilled its claims. Going into the experiment, my expectations were not particularly high. It is just tea, after all. If I've learned anything from my time spent with beauty editors, fitness experts and nutritionists, it's that healthy weight loss with staying power doesn't happen over night. And then I read the reviews. "I started to drink [this] tea [recommended by my mother's] friend. It took one year to get down from 140 pounds to 80 pounds. It sounds weird, but it actually happened to me. I am so happy." SO many of the accounts were similarly shocking. I started to question what would happen once the tea arrived and I began my detox.Should a 140-pound woman strive to weigh 80 pounds? How could that be healthy? Was this a dangerous product?Concerns flooded my brain. 

Before drinking the tea, I did some research and ran the claims by a few experts. 

These are the ingredients

Green Tea

Fit Tea's website reads: "Green teas have the ability to speed up the body's metabolic rate by up to 4%. This seemingly insignificant boost in metabolism can however with little or no effort than just drinking 2 to 4 cups daily help to burn stored body fats and reduce fat storage. Over time, this 4% boost in calorie burning can substantially increase an individual's overall fat burning capability. Green tea gives you energy by slowing the usage of carbohydrates in our body, meaning you can exercise much longer without feeling tired. Thus you can burn more calories." 

Theresa Krier, the founder of couture tea brand, Big T NYC, agrees: "The best teas to help you lose weight are green and white teas, which are rich in EGCG, a form of antioxidant that helps boost metabolism."

Here's a clinical study that supports those claims published in theU.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine.

"Oolong tea increases metabolic rate and fat oxidation in men," the website states. No word about in women.

Amy Rosoff Davis, a fitness expert, wellness guru, and Selena Gomez's long-time trainer verifies: "This antioxidant-rich, delicious traditional Chinese tea not only helps keep cholesterol levels in check and aids digestion, but it can also help with burning calories," Davis says. "Like green tea, oolong is packed with catechins, which improve fat oxidation and thermogenesis—your body's production of energy, or heat from digestion." A study in theChinese Journal of Integrative Medicinefound thatparticipants who regularly sipped oolong tea lost six pounds over the course of the six-week time period.

Garcinia Cambogia

"Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is an active ingredient extracted from the rind of the Indian fruit Garcinia Cambogia, the Fit Tea website reads. "It inhibits adenosine triphosphate citrate lyase and has been used in the treatment of obesity."

Elissa Goodman, celebrity holistic nutritionist and cleanse expert, substantiates the website's claim. She agrees that HCA is said to block fat absorption and suppress the appetite and inhibits a key enzyme, citrate lyase, that the body needs to make fat from carbohydrates. This is supposed to help you feel fuller more quickly and help convert the food you eat into energy as opposed to being stored as fat. "However, the most promising studies to prove this were animal studies," Goodman says. "The studies of Garcinia Cambogia in humans do not show any mind-blowing results."

This is what happened

Once I realised the ingredients were legitimate, I started the detox. My first impressions were that the tea tasted really good (just like green tea and honey) and drinking it every morning was a breeze. From the get-go, I could tell it was highly caffeinated—and a diuretic. I swapped out my usual cup of coffee as to not get too jittery and the symptoms subsided after the first few days.

As time went on, I started to realise it was a working. I didn't change my usual diet or exercise more (to control the experiment, and because I'm not exactly the exercising type). I woke up each morning feeling lighter and less bloated than usual. The difference wasn't huge, but I could definitely feel it. My jeans felt roomier and my confidence was instantly boosted. I don't use scales (as a way to stay positive about my body and keep from driving myself crazy), so, unfortunately, I can't report how much weight I lost. But, if the goal is looking and feeling good, the tea passed with flying colours. 

Goodman had some more advice, though, that wasn't surprising. "There are many other options to recommend for weight loss and maintenance, she explains. "No fad fruit herbal is going to take the place of consistency and healthier habits." I decided to celebrate the positive results and head to my local yoga studio instead of ordering another dose of tea. Afterwards, I vowed to eat a bit healthier in the next week and maintain the results. So, in the end, it seems the Kardashians aren'ttotally wrong about the effects of the tea. Itdoeswork. But, I'm choosing to fall back on good old diet and exercise to keep myself healthy and happy.
