I've decided to post occasionally about things that I love and that I feel have assisted me in this weight loss journey.
The first item I'm going to talk about is Lipton Tea and Honey flavor sticks:
Now let me first say that I realize that some people are not going to be thrilled with me promoting these because they contain sucralose. But as I've said here before, I think that artificial sugar has been around for a long time and that there is virtually no evidence of any long term negative effects from using artificial sugar in moderation.
For me, I drink a LOT of water, and sometimes I just get sick of drinking water all the time. So I use 1-2 of these flavoring sticks per day (10 calories in a packet) to spice up my water. It also works well to encourage me to drink on the days that I don't feel like drinking.
These packets come in a variety of flavors. Personally I like the Strawberry Acai flavor and DH likes the Peach Apricot. I also like the Mango Pineapple and Blackberry Pomegranate. I'll warn you that in my opinion the Black Currant Raspberry takes like fried ass. I'd stay away from it.
So anyway, I recommend these very low calorie sticks to flavor up your water. They also trick my body into thinking that I've eaten something when I want to nibble out of boredom.
Anyone else use and like these?
