Default Dieter's Tea

I recently purchase some dieter's tea. It is flavored peppermint. Drink 6oz once a day after last mea. Figured it would settle my "sweet tooth" cravings after dinner. Has anyone tried this? Effective or not so much? Your insight would be greatly appreciated!

What are the ingredients? Many 'dieters' teas are laxatives so I'd be careful.

I saw that the other day. I was half tempted to buy it but I didn't want to buy something that might be a waste. It didn't really say WHAT it was supposed to do

Sorry to jump on this thread after it's been dead so long, lol, but there are some great hot teas that don't taste like pee. I love mint tea, cinnamon tea, vanilla tea, etc. Sometimes you can take two bags and brew them together to make a "new" flavor. Plus, if you don't add sugar to it, it's low cal and somewhat filling. I teach during the day and keep a travel mug with me all day. Good luck!

I used to drink a Chinese dieter's tea, but I never really thought it did anything. I think I lost weight because I did 60 min of cardio everyday. Just keep drinking lots of water/tea/something low cal to satisfy your appetite, and if you're still really hungry, eat something low-cal and sweet.

I say skip the "Dieter's" tea and just get regular herbal mint tea. I like chamomile mint. It does help me go through the night without snacking, without any funky laxatives or stimulants. Definitely doesn't taste like pi**.

This thread reminds me. I have been seeing advertisements for some drink that is supposed to burn 100 calories. Has anyone heard of this drink and why do I think it's a scam? Of course, the sensible side of me says that I can burn 100 calories by running one mile and it doesn't cost me a dime.
