hi all. i find that i was eating too many snacks with my tea drinks so i have now trained myself to wait till my tea is cool enough to drink all at one time and have a smaller snack or even half or quater of a cookie so one cookie lasts me all day instead of eating one cookie with every cup of tea.
I often get cravings for something sweet so instead of reaching for a fattening dessert, I'm reaching for tea instead. I keep a stach of all sorts of yummy loose leaf tea like Sweet Coconut Chai, Cinnamon Green (my favorite!), and Good Mood tea (which really does work!). Visit your local tea store for hundreds of other varieties. You're sure to find one or two you like!
Drinking hot tea (no sugar added) instead of soda or energy drinks with my meals kept me on target!
I took out my usual 140 cal soda or carbonated beverages and substituted it with green tea, Yogi slimming tea, and Sleeptime tea (for relaxing). It helped with my food digestion, and w/ no sugar added it cut about 320+ cals off. I also feel more healthy and this works great for the cold seasons!
