Tea Drinking to Weight Loss

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Tea is a big helper in my weight loss. I am drinking a glass of water with meals and then a cup of tea after meals. This helps my stomach register satisfaction. I also love the soothing feeling of a hot drink after a meal. The sleepy time decaf tea is fantastic for the evenings.

Now I keep a bowl of tea bags and my cup ready right by the stove!

I was watching my nephew the other day and my sister-in-law had a Breville electric tea kettle. It heated the water amazingly fast without the annoying whistle. Look how much water you can consume! Also, I hate when my metal tea kettle chips at the bottom. This kettle is all glass. I got one for our beach cottage. I love it!

Do you have a favorite tea?

    My mom drank hot tea all the time and she was a tiny person, so maybe there is something to it! Seriously, I don't really like tea but I'm working on learning to like it. I've tried lots of different flavored ones, and some are pretty good. Sipping a hot drink does make me feel fuller and keeps me from snacking, so I will persevere!

    I love tea and have an electric kettle. It does help with weight loss. I like Good Earth sweet and spicy herbal decaf.

    I like hot tea occasionally but drink flavored decaf coffee more. I can see that many here are loving it. May be time for me to reconsider. emoticon

    I LOVE tea! I love all kinds have thousands in my house. I go to David's Tea all the time and get new varieties. I love loose leaf teas - the act of making the tea, etc. I have an electric kettle and it's on all day!! I have many pots as well and huge mugs. So much fun!

    Sounds great! Tea can be so soothing and satisfying.

I used to have a water boiler when I lived in France. So convenient because I didn't have a kitchen. You have a really nice one! Hadn't seen that kind before.

Enjoy your tea...think I might make one now! emoticon

    I am with you on this one, and really believe in the power of tea. My absolute favourite brand is David's Tea. It's a Canadian company with stores in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, etc. No stores in the U.S. yet, at least not as far as I know, but they do ship. They make and collect only the best teas from around the world, and there really is a noticeable difference between their teas and all of the other brands I've ever tried. My current favourite is a pu'er/oolong tea blend with bits of dried ginger and pear. It's supposed to control appetite and aid digestion, and I think it's really working. I love it!! It's called "Organic The Skinny." I have been spending ridiculous amounts of money on David's Tea since before Christmas, but it is so worth it! They're having a promotion with this skinny tea: three 70 oz. tins for $10 each. I bought 6 and am going through tons of the stuff! Sorry to sound like an ad, but as you can tell, I REALLY love me some David's Tea. emoticon

    I like to have a cup of PG Tips for an afternoon snack. I put a little bit of sugar and almond milk in it, and it's a good sweet treat for me.

    I'm drinking Rooibos Madagascar Vanilla as I read this! And I love Decaf Thai Coconut Chai (I think that's it.) I love tea, too. I find it satisfies my sweet tooth. emoticon Have you ever been to Teavana? Dangerous place!!

    Oh I love tea too. Tazo Zen is in my cup right now. "A harmonious blend of green tea with lemongrass & spearmint".

Chai is also a regular, as is the mix from the tea store. Can you tell I like tea :)

I use my Keurig to make tea, I have one of those tea cylinders (like a tea ball, but it hooks over the cup) for loose tea and it works perfectly.
