During this journey I have found that although grazing is so easy to do, I had to stop it. It is too easy to get extra calories in without even being aware of it. I have found that if I can fill myself up with fluid, I not only can curb the munchies, but i can also get extra water in. When I speak of fluid, I am referring to water. I always forget to drink my water, I swear I am mostly in a dehydrated state. This isn't a good thing when trying to loose weight and I need to do better. You need water to flush your system! Not soda, not coffee, not anything with chemicals, just pure, clean, water. When I consume fluid, I mostly do this, drink water. In a year, the number of sodas I consume, I probably can count on my left hand. The stuff offers nothing good for your body, nothing. I have read that for every soda you consume you should also drink a glass of water because it takes water from your system to flush the toxins out of your system. It's bad stuff and the farther away you can get from the stuff, the better off your health will be.
A little trick that satisfies both needs is that I try to drink mugs full of warm fluid through out the day. My two most favorite beverages is Pero with a little milk and herbal tea with a splash of milk. Sometimes at the end of the day, around 9ish, especially if I had a light dinner, a little hunger twinge might hit my tummy. A big mugful of one of these hits the spot and kills that feeling.
This is my favorite herbal right now because there is choice. Every flavor is so tasty and they have a natural sweetness so it's easy to pass up the sugar bowl. A shot of milk adds a creamy to it that is really satisfying. I am a little excited from this image because the Fruit Tea Sampler I have has an orange flavor instead of blueberry. I am excited to try some blueberry!
