Bee Spit Update

Bee Spit is how my loving, supportive husband refers to the Zi Xui Tang (aka bee pollen) tablets.

I've been taking them for about a week now, and I actually have lost more weight this week. However, I'm still not so sure about them. It is a detox program so I was expecting some really horrific side effects. I have heard horror stories about (ahem) bathroom issues, stomach cramps, and jittery nerves. But, it actually hasn't been that bad.

The first two days I had two incidents where my body felt tingly all over. I had head to toe goose bumps! Those incidents only lasted about 5 to 10 minutes each and that was it. I haven't had another one since. So, I guess the only side effect has been the bathroom issue.

Let me pause here and say that I really don't want to discuss my bathroom habits with you all. BUT!! I did make a promise to myself that I would keep this blog real and honest. So here goes. Quit reading if you want, but you have been warned!! ;)

Like I said, these pills are about detoxing when you first start them. They flush out the toxins. To do this, I have to eat something fatty during the day. About 30 minutes to an hour after eating something super fatty, off to the bathroom I go. I guess you could say these make my digestive system very regular. No, it's not diarrhea, but I am VERY regular now. That's something you wanted to know, right? :)

So, I'm going to use them for another week and then decide if I want to toss or keep them.
