Secrets of Success

Beating A Sweet Craving



Sometimes at night, I get a craving for something sweet. Rather than having a cookie or piece of pie or whatever other bad thing is around, I make a cup of tea. I use a sweetener that has probiotics in it, and I can add as much as I need to, in order to beat the craving. The warmth and extra sweetness of a cup of Vanilla Caramel hot tea really stop my need for eating junk!

  • Same thing here! That late night "gotta have something sweet" was killing my weight loss attempts. Ice cream with chocolate sauce and walnuts anyone? Since I starting sparking, I discovered a cup of cinnamon spice tea does the trick. Excellent tip! - by MIZMAGG
  • Yes! I do the same thing! My choice is usually chai but the teas you both mentioned sound great too!
