One woman was surprised to find herself pregnant even though she was taking birth control. She realized her baby bump was related to the "teatox" she started after she did some research.

So basically all she was doing was taking a laxative? That would mean the only weight she was truly loosing was water weight and if it was powerful enough to flush out her birth control imagine what it was doing to her gut flora.
taking laxatives (including laxative tea) for WEEKS at a time will RUIN your digestive system. you will NOT lose fat. you will lose water and waste, become dehydrated and then very constipated after you stop taking them. you could even become completely dependent on laxatives!! sooo dangerous... can't believe so many women buy into this!!
When I was in high school, I was ignorant and stupid on how to lose weight. I thought it was all about the calories, so I restricted myself to one meal a day. This lasted only for 2 days when I ate only a total of 700 calories per day. That ended quickly because I became so ravenous for all the bad things, and I didn't even realize the short term damage I did to my metabolism.
Fast forward 8 years later, trying to eat healthy, clean, restricting processed foods, and I am fitter than I have ever been in my entire life.
I wish all the young females out there can read this. Starving yourself is not the way to lose weight!!! Portion control, moderation, and exercise is where it's at!
I can honestly say I haven't. I sell for a company and I use some of their products to get healthier. I don't eat a lot of fruits and veggies so I have a drink that helps me get what I need from them without having to prepare them or have them spoil in my fridge lol. I just buy a small amount for our daughter or for special occasions lol.
I can't stomach listening to yall talk about what people should eat. Yall need to NOT talk about nutrition. Yall know nothing and have quite toxic lives. Diets. HA. Please educate yourselves on FOOD... and there is just some crap you definitely shouldn't be eating. Make time for a lifestyle of health now or you will HAVE to make time for a lifetime of disease later... And then die. POPULATION CONTROL and smartest of the fittest so technically I'm laughing.
The best diet imo: discipline.
I have measuring cups in my brown rice, beans, and lentil jars. I cook only one portion per person. No possibility for seconds or thirds.
Vegetarian meals for 2 days a week.
We indulge cravings and have mild cheat days.
I used to be anorexic, and it started out with a diet trend of reducing your calories way way low and girls at my school were doing it when I was in 7th grade. I did it for a while but I got obsessed with the "I HAVE to lose weight" mentality and I eventually stopped eating almost completely. Luckily I recovered from anorexia after 4 years (my lowest weight was 90 pounds at 5'8 that's a bmi of 13.7) but I'm now at my target weight and have a bmi of 18.7. I also went vegan a year after my recovery for moral and health reasons and I have a zeal for healthy eating nowadays. I love trying new healthy recipes full of fruits and veggies and now I eat as much as I want of the really nutritious foods with treats now and then.
+DStyleBoxing is right. Think people.... she got pregnant due to insemination.. not tea!
The tea caused a reduction in the efficacy of the birth control measure. That does not mean the tea got her pregnant. Stating the tea got her pregnant is "Reductio ad absurdum".
I'm not sure if it constitutes a "diet trend", but I used to do the trend of not eating breakfast first thing in the morning, and running on an empty stomach first thing in the morning - thinking it would burn more fat. Makes you feel terrible, threw up twice doing it, won't do it again.
Can't really say it is a "fad" but I went vegan for a month a few years ago just to "challenge myself" and it really want not a challenge at all (disclaimer: I have been lactose intolerant since I was 15 years old so I had already given up dairy 17 years earlier). In this month I watched some vegan documentaries on how sadistically cruel people treat animals for food and how detrimental it is for the environment that I stuck with it. I have been vegan for a few years now and feel quite satisfied after I eat each meal.
This is good to know, not just for birth control but for any sort of medication. I have to take certain pills every day for a medical condition and all hell would break loose if they were just flushed away by this tea.
Aside from the obvious (sports and eating in moderation, healthy food, fresh food, no processed crap) ... what i found (after reading about it) helps best is to eat and focus on eating.
Many people these days consider eating a kind of side-activity ... like eating while watching TV or eating while browsing the internet or similar. The problem is that the mind is kind of distracted while the body literally keeps stuffing itself. There is a risk that the mind simply forgets the crucial alarm-bells that ring when you are not hungry anymore. It goes straight to "i am stuffed, i cannot eat anything anymore..." - which is a sign for having overeaten.
When you just sit down and focus on eating alone - there is a much better chance that you do not miss when your mind tells you "alright, not hungry anymore - but if you insist you can eat a little more..."
This is the war on women. Businesses are trying to force women into pregnancy because the patriarchy wants to make women all pregnant so men can continue the wage gap. I wouldn't be surprised if the company was owned by Conservatives.
Juicing made me feel like death was coming... I had been told by a nutritionist, whom I promptly replaced, that feeling super sick was a good thing, and that it meant that I was getting all of the toxins out of my body. I fell for it, but after day 2, I couldn't move. I had a friend pick my up some of that "Naked Juice", which had wheat grass in it. Turned out, I am VERY allergic to wheat grass, and the bodily reaction was waaay gnarly. I ended up being hospitalized for a couple of days due to this "weight loss" fad. The only weight loss I had achieved, I chalked up to the hospitalization and the instant death like symptoms I had experienced.
I now just "shovel and wait". I will fix a small portion of food, eat, and then find something else to do in the meantime, and if I'm still hungry, I will grab a banana or an apple, and that usually tops me off. Moderation and exercise is really the only way to go. And, it actually works without having to completely rearrange your lifestyle.
Oh, and by "shovel", I really didn't mean it as if I eat my food like it's my last meal. I generally eat really slow, (thanks to a mother that made me chew each piece of food like a billion times). So I am usually the last person who is still eating, and I am usually full before my food is gone. So it works out for me. :) Eating slower will help with the bodily reaction to food as well as waiting. :)
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
