THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A MAGIC TEA THAT COULD INSTANTLY BURN, MELT, AND DISSOLVE THE AMOUNT OF FAT IN YOUR BODY.

There. I said it.

If you came here looking for a magic potion to weight loss woes, you’d be sorely disappointed. Honestly, you’d get a much better chance at finding a leprechaun riding a unicorn over a rainbow than obtaining a magical solution to losing weight. Anyone who promises to give you a drink that could burn or melt all your fat away is lying.
