What's the tea you're drinking?

I'm going to stop testing it, and just wait and see how things pan out. It's only been a week and a half. I would think there'd be some adjustment time. Like maybe my body is actually using the food I eat, and thus less to get rid of?
It's yogi tea - "get relief" I think thats' what its called. I found it in the organic section at the grocery store, there are all different varieties, but this one is supposed to help with constipation.

I've found that it makes me very sleepy and I sleep well when I drink it. Also, one tea bag didn't seem to work really well for me, so I started using two tea bags, and I let them sit for awhile, you're supposed to poop in about 8 hours after you drink it. BUT BEWARE, if you use two tea bags, make sure you're going to be home the next day because you do have to go a lot. If you just use one tea bag, you should go first thing in the morning and then be fine for the day, but I really like the two tea bags because I feel like it really cleans me out.

okay, enough of my talk about my poop!

Thanks Dr. Maura! :)
maybe it was your meal from the night before? It doesn't seem like you should have had oil from that.

i couldn't find that exact tea, but i found some called traditional medicine and it said it helped keep things flowing... we'll see!

 

i did post about this on the alli site, and the MD said it's probably jsut my body adjusting and a lot of times starting to take a multivitamin can clog things up a bit, but things should get back to normal as my body adjusts. Also said that some people's bodies just accomodate for the oil, and thus no oil droplets.

Okay... so I decided to jump right in with it and so far it seems to be going pretty well. Monday was day one (technically half a day because I started in the middle) and I haven't had any scary situations yet. I did notice I seem to be 'going' more regularly, but no emergencies. It's actually kind of nice because I am one of those gals who usually has difficulty going. I'm staying off the scale for a while though I've decided. I don't want to see that nothing has changed and get discouraged.

 

I'm PMSing as well and figure it's not a good two weeks to be near the scale. :)

Tara, I've had a bad week too, just been so busy that I've made awful choices because I'm just so hungry by the time I get to eat! I'm going to try to start sticking some snacks in my bag so that when I'm out somewhere I have something to eat, just to keep me from eating something bad, pms doesn't help!

I forgot about vitamins clogging things up, the days I remember my vitamins are usually the ones I notice the difference.

so.... i think i'm going off alli. I've been on it for almost 2.5 weeks, and while I have lost weight (3lbs) I'm not sure it's the Alli that is doing it. I'm working out and eating right.

 

 

WARNING - POOP TALK AHEAD

 

I wouldn't be going off Alli if it wasn't for my need to drink the special tea. My body may not be right for Alli. It was my understanding that I would be eliminating all this fat via pooping... but how am I supposed to do that if I don't poop at all? Seriously, it's bad. I have to drink the tea! That can't be right.

Tara have you gone on the alli message boards and asked one of those docs?

I just finished my 1st week and i have to say - I too have been a little irregular. I totally thought I would be having several " smooth moves" but not so much. I actually mainly notice more gas. not cute. I'm going to see what happens after another couple of weeks. I guess I always assume it will take 1 month for things to regulate themselves in the body. That's what I'm giving it to see what happens.

 

If you are super uncomfortable though then maybe you are right and it just doesn't work for you?
