I have discovered these Tea Leafs, in fact, it is called ThinTea and usually I am very wary about these “diets” however, I found it to be a natural ‘Way of Life’, not a diet, but a lifestyle. This tea is all natural and simply shares a Eating Plan which I found I incorporate in my lifestyle and daily meals already. So I did make the purchase to get these teas, however it is just like going to a tea shop and buying natural organic tea, instead, I have found all the essential nutrients in one blend. I love it.
What I mostly wanted to share with all of you is the Eating Plan included. It really encompasses a great dietary lifestyle for the healthy average person and for the athlete.
Check out this Eating Plan, and savour it.
My personal favourites were the following:
Try beginning your day with a glass water and fresh lemon. Drinking water increases the rate at which people burn calories, and much of this occurs when your body tries to heat the water to process it. In addition, water also has the effect of making you feel fuller without adding any extra calories whatsoever. Drink water throughout your day.
Plan your meals for the week and buy everything you need at once.
When you’re craving something sweet, reach for fruit. If plain fruit bores you, try grilling it or pairing it with protein, such as apple slices with a dab of peanut butter or pears with a few small cubes of Parmesan cheese.
Yogurt is a great food for dieters as long as you avoid the overly sweetened and processed variety. Buy plain yogurt and sweeten it with a tiny bit of honey or some fresh fruit. Chop or puree fruits like berries or peaches,or mix in a little cocoa powder or cinnamon.
Chop some raw vegetables and store them in individual portions in baggies in the refrigerator so you can just“grab and go” when you feel like snacking.
Hard boil a dozen eggs and keep them in the fridge for a quick breakfast or snack, or keep them on hand to chop and add to salads for a protein boost.
Don’t turn up your nose at avocados because of their fat content. Avocados have a high amount of monounsaturated fat, which is a special fat that scientists have found can actually reduce the distribution of fat in the belly area.
Garlic is a nutritional powerhouse that has long been known to help reduce inflammation and blood pressure, lower the risk of heart disease, and boost immunity, but did you also know that in a lab test, rats who were fed a high-sugar diet actually put on less weight if they took a garlic compound?
You might think that skipping breakfast will save you a few calories, but it will actually end up costing you more in the long run and causing weight gain. In fact, your body needs small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar levels even; if these levels drop, you’ll find yourself in a bad mood and with a serious lack of energy. Skipping a meal also makes you feel hungrier when the next meal comes around, and you could very well end up eating way more calories at the next meal than you would have if you had eaten normally in both meals combined.
The Mediterranean diet is great for weight loss and also helps reduce your likelihood of dying from heart disease, cancer, and other conditions. This way of eating focuses on vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, and grains and is rich in good fats. Red meat is kept to a minimum, and there is a heavy emphasis on poultry and fish. Olive oil is used instead of butter, and herbs are used to add flavour to food instead of salt. Even an occasional glass of red wine can form part of the Mediterranean diet.
So, to conclude this blog, I would like to say Life is short, enjoy it, don’t follow unreasonable diets that you cannot keep, but make life choices that you can maintain. It is okay to allow yourself that special treat from time to time, otherwise, depriving yourself will only defeat you.
Stay Active, and eat healthy!
