Tea is god! I like Chai with soy milk as my protien in the moring. Hot tea all day can be relaxing. and iced tea, iced hearbal tea can cut my cravings for "taste" when i want to eat something.
Just trying to learn to eat right, before i worry too much about cals.

I agree! I love all my teas, green, herbal, black, white. All great stress-busters that will banish my cravings to boot.

Just yesterday, I found myself wandering around the kitchen, grazing at all sorts of things. It wasn't necessarily unhealthy things--it was mostly fruit and a couple of crackers--but I wasn't hungry. When I realized that my mouth was just bored, I made myself a cup of "Yummy Berry" tea, which is my favorite instead-of-snacking tea, as it's sweet and very flavorful. It totally hit the spot and stopped the grazing.
I have the delicious and high-calorie habit of adding honey and/or cream to my tea, so I need to keep a little bit of an eye on my intake! But yes, I agree that drinking a warm beverage seems to satisfy something that cold water doesn't.
Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

Tea is one of my favorite anti-snacking tools. Often, I'm thirsty, not hungry, and warm liquids have been proven to help quell hunger. I keep a pot on the stove most of the time (sometimes with hilarious results... by the end of the day it's so strong I have to drink it like coffee!)
Heather Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
I've found that if water alone won't curb my cravings sometimes a warm cup of tea will help. I've found that warm drinks make me feel lass hungry. Herbal, green tea, white tea, etc all seem to help me. My favorite is peach ginseng. Also helps to calm the tummy. Hope this helps!
