But caffeine is a poison (the lethal dose is around 10 grams), and the "lift" it gives, lessening fatigue and brightening thoughts,is very temporary and far outweighed by its long-term side effects.


Not all teas contain caffeine, in fact plenty of herbal teas don't such as detox or cleanse from pukka. Teatox teas tend to do and they also have another ingredient that works on the bowels. I think it's expensive marketed nonsense you can easily get from ordinary herbal teas available that aren't over priced.

Aside from that, I wouldn't recommend juices or other garbage like that as its often full of sugar and lack of fibre.
Stay clear of sweeteners as I believe this adds to craving sweet products. But like sugar you should try and avoid these two are hard to avoid so limit them and remember it's all about moderation and balance.

Taking time to eat and take about 20-25 to finish a smaller plate helps to stay nourished too. Don't do low fats as this too has more carbs and/or refined sugars and fat too keeps you nourished for longer. Too much protein is also pretty useless because the body can only metabolise so much at the time. So those three just have to be balanced out.

Fibre helps sugar levels from spiking and aids digestion.

Hope that helps x

I never had a weight problem but wanted to get myself into shape so I started exercising at home and watching my diet. I didn't put myself on a strict diet because I knew it would make it harder for me to stick to so I just started limiting myself. I stopped eating out as much, started eating smaller portions, and cut down on sweets. I also upped my water intake. It's been a bit slow but it's definitely been working and I feel its much healthier than crash dieting or worrying about losing a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of time. I signed up for Beachbody's online workout videos because I've bought a couple of their workout DVD's and loved them. So rather than continuing to buy the DVD's I just stream them from my laptop or TV and I get access to hundreds of programs.

I have heard that green tea should help you losing weight. What definitely helped me was to stop drinking anything that contains sugar.
