You’re staring at your computer screen with weary eyes. Dinner has come and gone, but that oh-so-familiar beast we call ‘Hunger’ has reeled its damn head again, but you can’t snack after eight o’clock, right? That’s the weight loss rule number one isn’t it? Or is it?
I’m about to share with you some helpful truths for a situation of this kind and why you should be drinking a certain drink.
Firstly – it’s important to note that hunger is a basic survival instinct – and we must be grateful for it. The fact that it exists is an amazing feat in itself. Don’t be ashamed. Just know how to appease the beast.
There are those who claim the most effective diets are those which have you eating only two meals a day, and drinking water for the rest. I strongly encourage you to ignore these methods, as they are not sustainable. The secret is snacking. And I don’t mean digging around in a bag of chips and licking the salt off your fingers (we’ve all been there), I mean pouring yourself a bowl of organic nuts, Blueberries or Frozen peas. Be inventive, but clever about it. Choose the right food in moderation.
But let’s talk about the late-night secret. It’s simple. And easy. Are you ready for it – it’s a cup of Red Tea. Don’t underestimate those three words. Not to drink immediately before bed, but rather in the gap between dinner and sleep.
My go-to is the always delicious, always sufficient Red Tea. It satisfies the hunger itch, but leaves me feeling clean, calm and revitalised, primarily due to its detoxifying properties. And
it’s caffeine free – so don’t fear, you won’t be bouncing from the walls.
