You’re staring at your computer screen with weary eyes. Dinner has come and gone, but that oh-so-familiar beast we call Hunger has reeled its damn head again.
But you can’t snack after eight o’clock, right? That’s weight loss rule number one. Or is it?
I’m about to share with you some helpful truths for a situation of this kind.
There’s an ironic flipside to my mostly honorable label of ‘Liz Swann Miller – Weight Loss Expert’. I must strictly resign myself to the continuous expectation the general public attributes to the title – that I have it together.
Liz would never gain excessive amounts of weight. Liz would never give in to that looming golden M on the highway. Liz doesn’t snack late at night. How does Liz do it?
Let me tell you a secret. Liz struggles. Liz feels the exact temptations you feel, and resists the exact pulls you resist.
As this ‘Weight Loss Expert’, I often need to remind myself not only to pursue a healthy lifestyle in order to fulfill the expectation of my title and my career, but for my optimal wellbeing.
The temptation, for me, is at its worst late at night, during that time when I’ve supposedly declared eating over, yet I’m fighting hunger, bleary-eyed, answering hundreds of emails from clients seeking advice for topics such as this.
Firstly – it’s important to note that hunger is a basic survival instinct – and we must be grateful for it. The fact that it exists is an amazing feat in itself. Don’t be ashamed. Just know how to appease the beast.
There are those who claim the most effective diets are those which have you eating only two meals a day, and drinking water for the rest. I strongly encourage you to ignore these methods, as they are not sustainable.
The secret is snacking. And I don’t mean digging around in a bag of chips and licking the salt off your fingers (we’ve all been there), I mean pouring yourself a bowl of organic nuts. Or blueberries. Or frozen peas. Be inventive, but clever about it. Choose the right food in moderation.
But let’s talk about the late-night secret. It’s simple. And easy. Are you ready for it?
Okay. It’s a cup of tea. Don’t underestimate those three words. Not to drink immediately before bed, but rather in the gap between dinner and sleep.
My go-to is the always delicious, always sufficient Red Tea. It satisfies the hunger itch, but leaves me feeling clean, calm and revitalized, primarily due to its detoxifying properties. And it’s caffeine free – so don’t fear, you won’t be bouncing from the walls.
After my extensive studies around fat-burning solutions, the myths and the answers, I created this tea with ingredients selected carefully for late night cravings and overall weight loss (you can find the recipe in the link below). The benefits are endless, but the solution is simple.
Set yourself a challenge. I’ll be right there with you. Ditch the chips, the ice cream, and the guilty pleasure cheese blocks. Get the kettle bubbling and pour yourself a steaming mug of Red Tea. I guarantee – you will fall in love with the taste – and late night cravings will be a beast of the past.

INTERVIEW WITH LIZ SWANN MILLER
Elizabeth (Liz) Swann Miller is a naturopath and best-selling Amazon author. Her latest book, The Red Tea Detox, explains how anyone can lose up to 14 pounds in 14 days by making and drinking their own delicious red tea. The diet has already helped thousands of people lose weight. Liz, herself, has lost 41 pounds since making the tea a regular part of her life.
Here are Liz’s answers to frequently asked questions about herself and her diet program:
What are your qualifications?
“I have over 10 years of experience as a practicing Naturopath (ND) specializing in healing through nutrition. I have degrees both in Psychology and Naturopathy. My interest in weight loss springs from my own battle with obesity. I was overweight throughout my childhood, teens, 20s, and 30s. At that point, I decided something had to change, and I decided to take charge, take stock and start making changes in my life for the better. Drawing from my own experiences, as well as from what I learned from my studies, I began to write weight loss books. My goal is to educate as many people as possible about the healing powers of food and how to easily incorporate these changes into daily life.”
What is The Red Tea Detox Program?
“I believe The Red Tea Detox is the breakthrough many people who have been struggling to lose fat have been waiting for. It is based on a delicious red tea, which I discovered in a remote area of Africa. This tea – which is not a ‘voodoo tea’ as some claimed but a real tea that you can make at home – works with your body’s natural fat-burning metabolism to help you lose weight – as much as 14 pounds in 14 days. That means you can lose weight with no doctor visits, no lectures about losing weight, no expensive pills, no starving yourself and no intense workouts.
With the program, you get everything you need to lose weight including the red tea recipe and all the sources for the 5 unique ingredients (which can be found at any grocery store for pennies).
You also get:
- A complete 14 day meal plan that includes recipes for satisfying your appetite and delicious snacks to halt any cravings instantly. The meal plan covers four phases: The Red Tea Detox Phase 1: Days 1 – 5; The Red Tea Detox Phase 2: Day 6; The Red Tea Detox Phase 3: Days 7 and 8; Phase 4: Calorie Restriction Based on BMR.
- The Red Tea Detox Workout, an exercise program which has the potential to almost double your fat-burning results.
- The Red Tea Detox Motivation Plan, which dispels the common myths about willpower and makes sure you, stay motivated to lose a maximum amount of weight.”
Why did you create this new diet plan?
“My own struggles with being overweight reached a peak in my 30s after a difficult pregnancy. At the time I was 41 pounds overweight and desperate to find a solution. That’s when I heard about this amazing tea that tribesman in Kenya drink to not feel hungry while they hunt for their next meal. This story, which many at the time believed was just a legend, really intrigued me – so much so, in fact, that I decided to travel to Africa. To make a long story short, I found the tea, and it was even better than I could have hoped. Not only does it stop hunger cravings but it also burns fat and boosts your energy. I knew I had to get the word out so I wrote The Red Tea Detox so that others struggling to lose excess weight can get the lean body of their dreams – without exercising more or buying expensive weight loss drugs.”
Who is this diet plan for?
“The Red Tea Detox works equally well for both women and men. It also doesn’t matter if you have a lot of weight to lose or just a few pounds, it can quickly help you achieve your weight loss goal. This program is ideal for anyone who is concerned about their health (especially if you are over age 35) … Anyone who wants to lose stubborn fat around their belly, butt, and thighs … anyone who wants to lose weight without feeling hungry or unsatisfied. It doesn’t matter how stubborn that belly fat has been, The Red Tea Detox can help you lose unwanted weight. You’ll rebalance your fat loss hormones and unblock crucial metabolic fat-burning steps, so you can control your fat-burning and fat-storing hormones and do it as easy as 1-2-3.”
Why does this plan work so well?
“The red tea is simply amazing. Plus, the easy-to-follow detox plan that goes with it is rooted in sound scientific principles. It’s fat cell shrinking effects are based on scientific research and the latest discoveries in how fat burning is related to stress, proper hormone levels, adequate sleep, nutrition and exercise physiology.
But it all comes back to the tea, for which we discovered all 5 ingredients that make up the tea to work in perfect harmony too:
- Force fat cells to open up and release harmful toxins that clog up
- Reduce stress hormones like cortisol that block the brain’s fat-burning signals…
- Allow released fat to be burned for energy and muscle growth…
- Stop the feeling of hunger and cravings…
- Flush released toxins and fat from the body…
- And more…
In fact, all 5 unique ingredients work together to effectively detox the body to flush fat away in as little as 4 hours.”
Are there any secrets behind the plan?
“In addition to the tea, we have based this plan on three new revolutionary fat-shrinking rules:
- Rule 1 – Eat MORE, Weigh LESS. The old rules of dieting have been telling you to eat less… so you end up feeling deprived and starving with tiny portions. Forget about that.
- Rule 2 – Reduce STRESS, Restore Hormone BALANCE. This new rule is about reducing your chronically high stress levels and balancing your hormones. You will feel CALMER and Weigh LESS.
- Rule 3 – Exercise LESS, lose MORE Weight. Scientists have made astonishing discoveries … and a recent breakthrough is something scientists call the exercise “sweet spot.” Your sweet spot is the exercise intensity level where the full fat-burning power of your body is unleashed, so your body draws on fat stores for fuel. You are NOT exercising harder. You are exercising smarter. Do this right, and fat layers under your skin vanish… excess pounds disappear… you can drop a dress or a pant size in 2 weeks… as your whole body becomes firmer, sexier and trimmer.
Sadly, most people are eating too little and exercising too much…and this actually works against their fat loss.
With The Red Tea Detox Program, we are changing this “wrong thinking” and helping people lose more weight faster. With The Red Tea Detox, there are no more diet failures … No more guilt or remorse. When you drink it regularly, and follow the simple rules, you can quickly shed 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or more pounds.”
Hey I’m Pam!
So for starters, I need to admit that I had tried a few so called weight loss tea types before stumbling across the Red Tea Detox, and had lost a little hope in their effectiveness. Sure, you lose a little bit of weight at the beginning, but my experience was that a lot of it is water weight, and on top of that, the tea usually taste quite gross.
So it was with pleasant surprise to learn that the Red Tea Detox was completely different.
You see, from what I’ve learned, it is all based on a traditional African recipe dating back centuries. Instead of just flushing out water or whatever else detox’s often do, this tea actually attacks fat cells that have built up over a lifetime, and burns through them, the same way exercise does.
Sound too good to be true? Well, that’s what I initially thought! But having studied a lot in-cultural studies about Africa in my college days, there was something that rang true to me regarding the history of the Red Tea Detox. And I was not disappointed.
Firstly, the ingredients are not what you think – but at the same time, easily accessible. I only needed to buy one ingredient from the supermarket, the rest I had already at home.
Secondly, it has a wonderfully fruity taste that is easy on the palate and super easy to drink. Hot or cold.
You see, I wasn’t hugely overweight at all, but despite working out regularly and having a pretty healthy diet, I could never rid myself of those final few pounds. I always carried a little too much around the waist and thighs, and I thought they were destined to stay there.
But within days I started to feel a bit lighter in these areas, and within a couple of weeks, I could see a noticeable difference. My legs felt thinner and more taut, and my hips and waist started burning away those final few pounds.
Fast forward another month and I’ve got the crazy hot body that I’ve always wanted but never been able to attain, feel more confident about myself and life than I’ve ever been.
I couldn’t be happier with this product and recommend it to everyone!

My name’s Shelly, I’m 29 y ears old and gotta tell you all about my experience with the Red Tea Detox.
Kinda sad to admit it, but I hadn’t been in a relationship for a number of years and had slowly let the weight creep up on me. I used to make excuses about not going on dates or wanting to stay at home, saying I was too busy, blaming fatigue and other excuses. But the truth was, I was overweight, and I didn’t want to confront it.
When this cute guy Steve started at my work and I started crushing on him majorly, I decided I had to take action. Looking everywhere I could for a solution, I stumbled across the Red Tea Detox, and figured, what the hell?
I started right away, and the first thing I noticed how easy it was to make the tea! The recipes made complete sense from the beginning and I was able to buy everything I needed for it at the local supermarket. Also, it tasted delicious! I’m used to drinking tea with a little bit of sugar, but this needed no sweeteners at all.
The other great thing is that you don’t have to make any major lifestyle changes. Keep your diet, keep your schedule, just add the tea. How easy is that?
The best part though? It actually works. I mean like seriously. The first 2 weeks went so quickly, I had to do a double take when I stepped on the scales and saw that I had lost 12 pounds. 12 pounds in two weeks! I was so happy and so motivated after that to keep going, that I joined the local gym.
3 months later, and I’ve completely changed my life around. I’ve lost 40 pounds, I’m getting fit and in the best shape I’ve ever been.
And the icing on the cake? My crush Steve asked me out about 6 weeks ago, and we’ve been inseparable ever since.
If you have any doubts, I urge you to try!

My name is Alistair, and I’m proud to tell you of my little journey with the Red Tea Detox.
I travel a lot for work, and when you’re spending a whole bunch of time in transit and airports, etc, it’s pretty easy to fall in the trap of just eating junk food all the time. When your schedule is all over the place, the last thing you can seem to try and manage is a workout regime on top of that.
However, as time has gone by, the pounds have added up, and I was certainly starting to feel the pinch around the waistline.
When my girlfriend sent me the Red Tea Detox, I must admit, I was a little bit upset! “You think I’m fat?!” was my immediate reaction. But deep down, I knew that I was, and was trying to pretend it wasn’t a problem. I also knew that she was trying to help me the best way she could, and she really felt that this was easiest thing I could add to my busy lifestyle without any major changes.
Boy was she right.
You see, when I made my first brew, I kept it cool in the fridge overnight and took it with me on a trip the next day. The first thing I noticed was how great it tasted, and sipped on it periodically throughout the following day. Before long, I was hooked on the stuff! And with the simplicity of the ingredients which are available everywhere, it meant I could make a new batch easily the following day, wherever I was in the country.
In no time, I was making a new brew of the Red Tea Detox and taking it wherever I went. I couldn’t get enough.
But the taste wasn’t the most important part – it was the results.
Within days I started to feel lighter and healthier. My belt buckle began to ease up and slowly but surely the weight started to drip off me.
I remember after being a way a week, walking into the living room and my girlfriend
screaming with enthusiasm at how skinny I was. And this was all with no change to my diet at all, just the addition of Liz Swann Miller’s Red Tea! It’s been 3 months of this now, and I’m down nearly 22 kilos and I can barely believe it!
I’m the healthiest and happiest I’ve been in years, my relationship has improved 10-fold and can’t believe I’d been living my life without this all those years. Thanks Liz!

I couldn’t wait to tell everyone about my experience with the Red Tea Detox from Liz Swann Miller.
This stuff really works! I’m down 11 pounds, and I’ve only been drinking this amazing tea for 14 days.
Since having twins last year, I’ve really struggled to get back to my pre‐baby body, and to be honest, it’s been a real drag. I’ve felt sluggish, depressed, completely un‐sexy and my relationship with my husband has suffered. When you’re stuck at home with two new borns, it’s pretty hard to find time for healthy eating let alone any form of exercise, and I’d pretty much resigned myself to being a size 16 for the rest of my life.
When my sister sent me the link to the Red Tea Detox from Liz Swann Miller, I gotta say, I was a little sceptical. My junk mail is always being flooded with so called “miracle diets” and scammy products that demand a heap of money up front.
However, when I was told the story about Liz Swann Miller and her amazing journey being a mom, I gotta say, I felt like I related. Not only that, the background story of the secret African tea recipe really piqued my interest, and I was desperate to know more.
Well, I can say I’m so glad I signed up! Not only is the story fascinating, but the tea really works.
Firstly, it tastes incredible, and I felt full of energy immediately. Not that caffeinated, artificial energy that coffee gives you and you crash an hour later, this had me completely full of beans all day! And this is with no sugar, no artificial nasties.
And then secondly…The weight really does come off! Within a few days I felt lighter around the hips and waist, and by the end of the first week, I managed to squeeze into a size of size 12 jeans that I hadn’t worn in ages! A week later and I’m down to size 10, and couldn’t be happier. I actually wore a little black dress on the weekend that my husband hadn’t seen me in for years and needless to say, he couldn’t keep his hands off me.
I’ve felt the youngest I’ve felt for years, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
The best part is, I know exactly what I’m putting into my body, because the recipe is all easy to find organic ingredients. I was able to start right away, and I can continue or discontinue whenever I want. No hidden subscriptions, no waiting for the mail.
Thank you so much Liz!

First of all, I know it is not easy at all to stay in shape once you reach a certain age.
As a working mom with three kids and a busy husband, it’s hard enough to make sure dinner is on the table every night, let alone to find the time to work out and keep in shape.
Over the years, the weight just creeps up on you, and to be truthful, I hadn’t really noticed and had been living in blissful ignorance of my slow weight gain. That all changed when a cousin gave us a family photo from Christmas last year and I didn’t recognize myself sitting there in the photo. Who was that huge woman sitting there with my family?
As sad as it was, it was the wake-up call I needed.
I decided right then I had to make a change, and started doing some research on the easiest and most effective ways to lose my weight. When I stumbled upon Liz Swann Miller’s Red Tea Detox, it seemed to be exactly what I wanted – easy to make, easy to drink, and no expensive gym memberships or major change in diet.
It all seemed too good to be true. Maybe it was? I must admit, I was pretty skeptical. There seems to be a whole bunch of scammy products out there on the market. But there was something about this that made me look twice.
And I’m so glad I did.
The weight started coming off immediately, and it tasted amazing too! Since starting 2 months ago, I’ve never looked back. I’m back to a size 10 for the first time in years, and I have so much energy that I’ve actually created some time in my schedule to get a 30 minute walk in every day. It feels incredible!
Thank you so much Liz and her wonderful team that have been so helpful to me throughout the whole process as well. I couldn’t be happier with the results.
