Drinking tea has to be one of the most over looked methods when it comes to losing weight.
First of all tea is a zero calorie drink. Well it *should* be a zero calorie drink but some crazy people like to go and add sugar and or milk to it. If you have to do this (and want to lose weight) then I would suggest that you find another tea to drink.
Secondly it will keep you hydrated and keep your appetite under control. Most of us should be drinking at least two litres of water per day. This may seem high, but when you think that you can get there by having eight cups of tea it starts to seem a bit low. If you have one with each main mean and one with your snacks, you’re already looking at 6 cups. Pretty easy.
Thirdly you can use it to get rid of those “I’m eating because I’m bored” snacks that are typically bad for your waistline. If you fall into this category, instead of reaching for that nasty snack next time, put the kettle on and have a cup of tea. You’ll soon recognise that you aren’t hungry and that having the cup of tea satisfies your urge to eat something.
I’m not by any means a tea snob and 95% of the time I just use tea bags.
Boil the kettle, add the water, take the tea bag out, add some cool water and drink.
At the moment I have the following teas in my cupboard because I get bored quickly and want a change
- Plain green tea
- Peppermint tea
- Green tea with lemon
- White tea (thats white tea, not black tea with milk!)
- Green and white tea with goji and pomegranate
- Black Ceylon tea
- Green tea with papaya
- Green tea with blackberry
- Green tea with peach
- Green tea with mint
- Green tea with mandarin
- Chinese green tea (powder)
If I get sick of the one flavour I move on! No loyalty to the tea here!
Sometime the simple things can deliver the biggest results. Keep it simple but keep it consistent.
