The Switch to Tea

Friday, October 11, 2013

So last week while I was shopping I ended up getting a couple of teas because I had been wanting to try and drink more tea instead of flavored water like Mio. I do still need to sweeten it, but I opted for some stevia instead. I have been quite enjoying it really is it because the cold weather hit or did I find the right tea I like? I have a cup with my breakfast, and some through out the afternoon.

Since I have done this I have lost 2 lbs! I'm astonished really just one little change and I find that I'm not craving sugar like I was before. Doesn't stop DH from coming home and making cake pops. We need to work on him LOL.

    Great reminder! I agree, tea can make a huge impact, you increase your fluid intake when you drink it! I need to swap out morning coffee for tea again!!! :) I think it's much easier to drink tea when you find one that you enjoy! emoticon

    I love tea! I drink a cup of hot tea whenever I'm feeling hungry and it usually helps curb by appetite. Glad you tried it!

    (cakepops sound wonderful by the way!)

    There are some tea flavors that are good even without a sweetener. I really like the Celestial Seasons Cinnamon Apple Spice flavor. Prefect for the warmer weather :)

    I have a tea (from David's too) and it is already sweetened somehow..thanks for the reminder..I keep them at work and forget to drink them. Something about the hot liquid that seems to curb the appetite.

    My DH never makes anything, so I wouldn't mind trading for a few days-LOL

    I like tea, but never drink it, but I also find it a lot easier when the weather gets colder - nice jobe on the small change :-)

    YAY for the loss! Amazing how the little things help, isn't it?

    I have learned to avoid products like Mio. They have aspartame, and it turns out that gives me headaches. Tea is much better, and tastes more delicious anyway!

    ... now you've made me want some nice hot tea, and I don't have any bags here emoticon

    Much better choice! I have found a Stevia sweetened drink mix that I love. It is called True Lemon, but has several flavor choices. I still choose plain water or iced tea over it, but it is nice to have the sweet once in awhile. I actually ordered it from Amazon as I couldn't find it consistently at the grocery store.

    I love Chai tea, both spice and vanilla flavors because it has sweetness without having to add anything else. I also will brew some up and use just a little to add flavor to my water instead of using Mio.

    Congratulations on your weight loss! emoticon

    Great, I am a self confessed tea-aholic !! I have so many different sorts and I have a little teapot I purchased from Woolworths. I put in teabag and then pour my cup of tea and then I add more water and go again - I usually get about 3 cups out of one teabag and this too encourages me to drink more of it and flush out the body. I drink mainly green tea and herbal teas. I have learned to have all my teas black. I too have stevia in case I need it - it is plant based so all natural. You are doing so great with one little change like that - well done!
