Default IP Tea New Product

My coach told me yesterday they are coming out with a new tea that helps speed up your metabolism. Apparently they said it isnt for everyone as if someone has a fast metabolism it can give you the shakes.

Has anyone else heard of this or tried it or perhaps it isnt for sale yet. I am not sure

I know you probably can't answer this, but how will they know what your metabolism is?

My old clinic keeps posting something about a new tea on their FB page. I was actually curious about it too because I can't imagine a tea subbing for an actual meal. Good to know it's just supposed to be a supplement.

I'm a little concerned about this one. I would think it would be green tea with maybe a few additives but why would IP be putting something like this out? Their other items have nutritional value and this wouldn't. And unless they made it caffeine free (which it doesn't sound like it is since it could "give some people the shakes") then it goes against what they preach to us about limiting our caffeine intake. And we can buy tea anywhere, even ones that purport to speed up our metabolism. Sounds like it's just a way to make more money rather than something that will be helpful to their clients.

From what i understand it is a green tea and it is supposed to be caffeine free or very low caffeine. It is not for everyone because it speeds up metabolism, it is only supposed to be for those in a "stall"
I dont know if it is a meal replacement or a supplement, i guess we will have to see when the product comes out for sale.

CONGRATULATIONS on the loss. And are you sure you don't want to be the guinea pig? You could be doing this for science.

I'd try it, you are pretty sure your metabolism is slow. It would be interesting to see if it helps.

OH, for heaven's sake, Trinique, either try it or don't. It's up to you. But please. Stop waffling, OK?

Both joking and sincere advice don't seem to help. Example? You generated a thread with 100 posts, most of them trying to help you stay fixed. Are you? I hope so.

Honestly, I wouldn't even think of posting this, and I've thought about it a long time, if I didn't sincerely want you to get to your goal, go through the phases, and maintain your goal. You can if you want to. Really want to. The fact of the matter is, WE ALL REALLY WANT YOU TO SUCCEED. But in the long run, it's up to you.
