Don’t you just hate it when you’re reaching for the freshly brewed cup of coffee on a sleepy morning, and suddenly, your brain goes into an alarm mode!
It reminds you of your new year’s resolution, the dreadful… DIET.
Now the whole problem is, if you stay true to your diet, how will you manage to survive the crawling hours of early mornings?
Don’t you worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are five healthy substitutes that will help you shed the extra pounds!
1. Green Tea (Matcha)
The caffeine and flavonoids in green tea can help elevate your metabolic rate, improve insulin activity, and increase fat oxidation.
This rich green tea is an ideal source of antioxidants and nutrients because the whole leaf is ground and consumed as part of the beverage (compared to other green teas where the leaves are steeped, and then you drink the tea).
2. White Tea
White tea is dried naturally, often in sunlight, making it the least processed and richest source of antioxidants among teas. According to the journal Nutrition and Metabolism, white tea can simultaneously boost the breakdown of blocks behind the formation of fat cells.
It also contains L-theanine, which helps decrease stress while promoting concentration.
3. Rooibos Tea
What makes rooibos tea particularly good for your belly is a unique and powerful flavonoid called Aspalathin. Research shows this compound can reduce stress hormones that trigger hunger and fat storage. Say goodbye to stress with this tea!
4. Mint Tea
When you inhale certain scents, you help suppress your appetite. Fill a big teacup with peppermint tea to help you combat cravings and hunger. You can now inhale your way to achieving your skinny feels.
5. Lemon Tea
Lemon tea contains d-limonene, a compound found in citrus rind oil, and that d-limonene can help fight belly bloat due to water retention and refresh you. Lemon tea can help you control your blood sugar levels.
Keep calm and sip away your weight!
