Rapid weight loss worked for me best

Many “experts” want you to believe that slow, gradual weight loss is easier to sustain than large, rapid weight loss.

What worked for me is opposite. I needed a solution that would provide the fewest calories possible while still providing all of the essential nutrients required by the body: protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.

I started to lose weight fast and fast results kept me motivated.  I got excited and wanted to stick with my method.  I had the incentive to keep going because  I saw the numbers on the scale going down every single day.

Clinical trials have found that people who jump-start their diets by dropping a lot of weight in the beginning had the best results in long-term studies.

Hot tea is beneficial for losing weight

I drink hot tea several times a day. No sugar, no milk, just plain, hot tea.  Hot tea is very beneficial for losing weight. It can give you a real boost.

Some hot teas actually reduce sugar and fat absorption while speeding up the digestive process.

Each time you sip hot tea, you get a huge infusion of powerful compounds called antioxidants which are believed to fight off heart attacks and cancer.
Drinking iced tea is not the same. A cup of hot tea contains more of antioxidants than iced tea. Chilling tea reduce the antioxidants. Iced tea drinks tend to have less actual tea and more other ingredients, such as flavorings which have no nutritional value in them.

Regular consumption of hot tea is associated with decreased weight whereas regular consumption of iced tea is not. Several cups of freshly brewed hot tea (minus the sugar) per day is the healthiest option.

After water, tea is the most commonly consumed beverage worldwide.

Life happens

Nobody is perfect.

Life happens.

At same point we are all going to struggle, we are all going to have a bad day and make some not-so-healthy choices.

It is called being human. It happens to all of us. The difference between success and failure is how you handle those bumps in the road.
