Try tea with a little sweetner and a tad bit of milk or creamer. I use fake sugar and a tiny bit of powdered creamer in my tea when I drink it.

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

I am a 2-3 cup a day coffee drinker and love it. Plus with all the new research showing how 3-5 cups a day are a health benefit, why give it up.

These are great ideas. I think of giving up coffee, just can't do it yet.

How about a cup of hot low sodium broth.... beef, chicken, vegetable etc?

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

Wow!!! I just took the "time" to go back and read up on POSTUM !! It said Kellogg stopped making it in 2007! But it shows places where you can, get it, but it's very expensive!! So probably real "lovers" of this drink, are the only ones that buy it!! This has brought back memories for me from 1974 and on!! I haven't had it or thought about it in many years, till this ? Came up!

I've always been a hardcore tea drinker (and always will be) but In my thirties I started drinking a cup of coffee in the morning and really enjoy it. I just don't drink much more than that.
One option you might give a go is a tea called Macha (sp?). It gives you a little lift like caffeine but I'm told totally different from caffeine. More gentle.
I have had it once or twice and I remember it tasting a bit like green tea.
I hope that helps...

Sparklise, I agree with you about green tea. No matter what I do to it, it tastes like fish to me ( I know, weird taste buds). Plus my hygienist swears that it causes the most staining to your teeth.

I can't drink coffee anymore, though I was addicted to it in college. I now drink a Japanese tea called Genmaicha (hard g) that has roasted rice in it and gives me the "sense " of coffee. I get it from Argo Tea, but it can probably be found online.

I don't like green tea-i've tried all kinds and I just can't drink it-maybe if I put sweetener in it?
I like herbal tea,but, it's not the same.
And,I've never heard of Postum. Would they sell it in grocery stores or health food stores?

Is Postum still around? I looked for it for someone a couple years ago, and failed to find it. Or maybe it's just not sold locally anymore.

I gave up coffee when I was pregnant with my son and started drinking Green Tea. After my son was born, I went back to coffee. I've been thinking of going back to Green Tea. It's supposed to be better for you.

I've never been a coffee drinker, but I like tea. If you like tea, it comes in many varieties, including herbal (which isn't really tea, but I won't get into that). You could choose a little caffeine or a lot or none at all!

Tea gives me a "nice cup of something in the car." emoticon

Here is a product called POSTUM it is a substitute for coffee, all natural, comes in an instant form in a jar. You do have to "acquire" a taste for it, but many people do enjoy it.

I have given up coffee but I miss that nice cup of something in the car in the morning.
I would like to know if any of you know of a good coffee substitute that does not leave me jitery and tired after.
